Mystery Stamp-a-long ~ World of Dreams

Last week my Stampin’ Up! Gramma, Sharon, organised a Mystery Stamp-a-long via Facebook.  It was an hour long virtual event  from the comfort of my own study.

She gave us  a brief list of what to have on hand, cardstock, Designer Series Paper, coordinating ink, stamp set (with pictures and words) and some embellishments – that was all the info we had to go on until the stamp-a-long started.

I’m back………………..

Tax season is over, I’m back at my work bench and normal service is about to resume!!!!!

I apologize for not posting very much in the last 5 – 6 weeks, been very busy helping the nation file their taxes ( did not actually get ours filed until late on the night of the 14th ~ bit too close for my liking, prefer to get them done by mid-March!)

But while  I have not had time to post I have had some time to make and have some things to share with you over the coming days………………

Thank you cards

One of the lovely things about having card making classes is when you receive a hand-made thank you card in return. I thought I would share a couple I got in the mail in the last few weeks.
