Happy Anniversary!

Adam and I celebrated our 9 year ann on August 5. he took me to this tiny cabin in Tellico Plains at Caney Creek Village, we went to Bald River Falls, and there is a beautiful bridge we pass that I love. We love the area and it is on the way to where we camp in Citigo Creek. I used Stampin Up stamps and card stock.

Here is the card

and here is the cabin we stayed in.

The covered bridge.

Playing around with acrylic stamps.

Stampin up stamps and acrylic stamps are very different. I love my stampin up stamps, but I have a few acrylic ones. I have tried everything to stamp with acrylice stamps but with the stampin up ink, I just could not get it to work. Finally I talked to my aunt Deb and she told me to get memento ink, and I found it on sale at Hobby Lobby half price. Well it did not work at first. I found somewhere to take a nail file and rub the top pf the stamp to make it not bead up. FINALLY! a card was made. It is not my best work at all, but this is what I made playing around with it. Here is my new jungle stamp set and the card I made.

It's baby shower time!

I wanted to make a few things for my friend who is having twin girls. I have been looking at these photo albums, waiting to get one and make something. I went very simple on this one.
