A Hostess Club Stamping Frenzy!

Okay, I have a story. Not a long one, like most of mine, but a story. Friday night, me and my girlfriends got together at Vickie’s house. It was the hostess club she has going, and all of us involved are pretty close friends. Anyway, Tessie and I received our order from Stamping Bella, and had all our cute little stamps out showing the other girls. We decided to share, and so we pulled out the Stazon Black and passed the stamps around the table, stamping up Bellas and Fairies so everyone could try them. I sat today coloring some of mine. Also, Tessie had gotten some of the Glam Girls from CC Designs, and I stamped a few of those. I was thinking of buying them, and getting a chance to play with them helped me decide. After coloring them today, I believe I will. They are so cute.

Today, I received an order of Sugar Nellie’s. I ordered 5 of the Sweet Art Ebonies. They are so adorable. I stamped and colored one of those tonight, too. I love this one. It is a little girl feeding a kitty. I cannot wait to make a card. I was in a coloring mood today, so that was about as far as I got . . . coloring!

A couple of years back I decided to make recipe books for all my sisters and sister-in-laws for their birthdays. I didn’t do scrapbooking, because I had never even seen scrapbooking. I would buy these little books for $1.00 at Dollar General, take them apart and run the paper through the computer to print out the recipe. After putting the book back together, I would decorate the pages. Then, one of my friends told me that was similar to scrapbooking. Then, after I met up with all these ladies that really know about scrapbooking, I changed my books a little. I am now working on a new one. The post for today will be a page for my new recipe book. I love to dry emboss and don’t do it too often, but I did a little for this page. Hope you like it. Thank you for stopping by. Please come back by often.
