oh the fun!

I want to start today by thanking each of you for visiting my blog. I really appreciate your comments and friendship. It still amazes me how many friendships I have developed through blog-land.
I am really excited about the months to come. I have so much to share from stamping to CHA! With a few surprises in between *lol* Oh and Yes I am already looking at February on my calendar. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes at my home and I can truly say that you inspire me to keep pushing the boundaries~thank you.

A few tidbits before I post my cards for today.

1) I know many of you are SU! fans. And I just want to thank you for hanging in. I promise to play a little more with my SU! stamps very soon. They have taken a back seat because I have a bunch of new stamps and supplies coming through the door weekly and frankly it is hard to even find them on the shelf right now *lol*. But alas, those western stamps are calling my name again.

Almost forgot (shame on me!), Jillian Winters, my Prettie Girl DT friend send met he most GORGEOUS card using yesterday's bouncing brayer technique. If you did the rounds yesterday you'll note that she posted it on her blog but if not WOWZA...hang on to your seat.

Isn't her card just the prettiest thing you have ever seen? And it uses one of my all time fav SU! stamp sets too.
