    Oh what a fun hop and an even better DARE! I love my tags/bookmarks so this was especially fun. I want that tag die set so bad I can taste it, not to forget about the Scratch Pad set! (SERIOUSLY! True story!)
    Side note: Sadly, I just got word (while I was happily hopping here), that after letting my daughter use my car (for the past month to get my grandson to & from pre-school), someone accidentally backed into it in the driveway and now my extra cash will be going to the body shop! LOL. The good news is… my little grandsons were happily sleeping and not playing outside, so all is good!

    Totally blew me away looking at all these Lovely Stamping projects! Stamping and Card making have come a long way in the last 18 year’s. I had started Stamping and card making, going to classes as well as giving classes when it all just started out. I had to stop when my employment had me working 10 to 16 hours a day and doing night shifts also. Of all the craft’s I did, the only one that my late Husband liked and supported me in was my Stamping! Now that I am starting to get back into this wonderful craft, I am excited to see where it will be taking me to create my own.
