Olympic good times

It has been very cool to catch the excitement as the Olympics fast approaches! Tonight is opening ceremonies and for sure my girls and I are watching them on tv. We had the great experience this past Sunday to have the torch go near our house. We also have the Russian Figure Skating practicing at our local ice rink. After swimming lessons we always check them out. It is so amazing in real life to see the triple axles! Here are a few pic's I took that Sunday afternoon. The girls school is really getting into it to with Opening ceremonies on monday, a Winter Sports day and lastly a Closing Ceremonies in 2 weeks. What a great experience that the girls will hopefully always remember! Go Canada!

my new Stampin' area!


I'm so excited..I wanted to share with you where my club ladies are going to be stamping tonight! This has been something we've toyed around with for ages...after having my stamping events in our basement suite in November it really made me love having my events out of my kitchen - family area. Our suite was rented in December though so back up to our kitchen for January.....I got to thinking that we really don't use our basement much....old tv, barbies, excersice equipment gathering dust my friend Rosella and I last friday moved everything around and new stamping area was born! I'm so happy as I was able to set up today while Jake is napping. Plus my kiddies/husband won't be in a mad rush to eat dinner and get the kitchen all ready for stamping.
I was able to borrow some chairs and tables. I put a few things up but will make it more homey/crafty as time goes on.

What do you think?

Happy Stamping!

January club card #2

Hello again,
Here is the 2nd project made at January club.
It was such a super easy card to make. You could easily make a batch of these, using the different sentiments found in the Well Scripted stamp set and it would make a lovely gift!
Stay tuned for some Olympic pic's!
Happy Stampin'
and thanks for dropping by!

club in Jan

Hello! has been busy lately. How about you?
I realized I havn't shared my Jan club projects so here they are!
I was happy with how this turned out. LOVE the new DSP in the Occasions has sparkle built right in! I also did 2 techniques with this card - faux icing which I learned about from my monthly Stampin' Success magazine that Demonstrator's get. We also did Paper Piecing on the cupcake holder...(DSP)
I love brown and pink as a colour combo...don't you? You can't go wrong in my opinion :)
Will share more soon! Also pictures from our Olympic festivities we were at this afternoon! FUN!
