Clear Skies and No Wind!

After two days of awlful wind, up to 77 mph wind gusts and cloudy skies, this afternoon the sun peeked out and the wind started to go down. What a relief! We never lost our power but alot people that I know did. What crazy weather we've had here in Central Wisconsin. I couldn't believe it when the weatherman called it a "non tropical cyclone". All I know is that it sure was windy, broke another branch on our four year old Maple tree that we planted.
Here are a couple more cards that I made this past week. It uses the new stamp set from Stampin' Up! Day of Gratitude. I really love the fall colors of Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, More Mustard and Crumb Cake. With Halloween just around the corner, I also wanted to share the little treats that I made. I made them first as an incentive that my upline put out there AND I am happy to announce that I won a prize for making them. I am always happy when my stamping work is reconized, its such an honor.

But the second reason that I made them is that I had this great idea and I just couldn't wait to make them and share with people that I know. I have handed these little treats out in hopes of introducing people to stamping or just to say, "this is what I love to do!" While I didn't get anyone to book a workshop, I enjoyed making them, it was an ice breaker as people that received them thought they were so cute! So in my mind, it was still a success.I do have a workshop to prepare for in two weeks, I like to take my time when I come up with the cards that I will demo and also the cards that will be part of the make and take by the ladies that attend. When I am rushed I always seem to forget something! Could be part of getting old, not quite sure about that though!!

Time to fold some clothes and think about what else, Stamping!! As always take care, and thanks for stopping in!

I finally got my blog fixed, what a relief!! I didn't know what to do with that little video/picture box that was always in the middle of the screen. But I think I figured it out. Don't ask how, as I have no clue what I did!! Thats the story of my life, just keep at it; don't give up, you'll figure it out eventually!!!

I wanted to share some cards with you that I have been working on. In fact I have been very busy with my stamping. I did a workshop in September and I have another in November. I am hoping to build up my business so that I have a workshop every month. That would make me very happy.

This is my Thanksgiving card for this year, you should see it in person! Its just fabulous!!

Well I have to run, All My Children is on and I hate missing a single show!! As always, take care.
