You may be wondering where I disappeared to. One day I'm here and all is good and then poof, you don't hear from me for almost a week. That's because I ended up in emerg last week Tuesday and back to the hospital Wednesday for tests and home the rest of the week working on getting better. Let me tell you that was the worst birthday gift ever. It really bites when you are going through triage and they ask your date of birth and then say "oh, happy birthday" Yeah, not really cause if it was happy and good I wouldn't be there. Though, I've now returned and feel almost back to my old self.

Two of these five designs I got from Splitcoaststampers. The Joy card I CASE'd from user cmfwells on Splitcoast and the card showcasing two ornaments from the Tree Trimmings set I CASE'd from user maryloves2stamp on Splitcoast. The only thing I did different on this card is that I added a strip of Old Olive Cardstock and used my Scallop Border punch on the one edge.

Well, I cannot believe Christmas is just around the corner. I haven't even began shopping yet. Yikes. At least I have started working on some Christmas cards.

It was interesting cleaning my stamping room last weekend. I finally came upon my overloaded cabinet with old swaps from upline events, regionals and convention. Although I haven't had a chance to go through all those boxes yet, there were some loose card fronts sitting in some open topped containers that I had made while debating what would be my final choice for my swaps. These poor card fronts were tossed aside as not good enough and left, lonely and forgotten. While browsing through them, I thought to myself that some of them were actually better than I remembered. LOL One of them I am sure I made and at the same time, I'm not 100% certain that I made it. Being as it was separate from my main box of swaps I believe it is mine but I think I CASED the idea of the card from elsewhere, which is probably why I'm confused. Perhaps one day I will share it with you.

I just ordered in some large grommets and was a bit leary on getting the holes through my paper. I pulled out my Mat Pack and was trying to sort out my placement when what do you know happened, the prongs went right through all my layers of paper. I was tickled pink. All I had to do was fold over the prongs with my bone folder, easy peasy. :)

"On Oct. 4th, 4 teenagers armed with knives broke into a home in a small town in New Hampshire. Alone and sleeping inside were a mother and her 11 year old daughter. These 4 boys broke into this home with the intent to rob and kill anyone inside. They stabbed the mom, Kimberly Cates, to death and left her daughter, Jaimie, for dead in their driveway. It was a completely random act, their home was chosen only due to its secluded surroundings."
