Stampin While the Kids Sleep

As I'm typing this, my baby puppy is in total bliss, as can be seen from the photo on the left. She's using my jacket as a pillow and couldn't be happier. She's is knocked OUT at my feet, but still full of STINKY STINKY STINKY gas. Stinky meerkat!!!
Yesterday, I actually got to stamp. The kids were sleeping, so that was great! It was raining, and I was waiting for the postman to come with all my packages. I've been trading stamps like a fiend! I keep adding more to my trade list when I think it's getting to low (haha), so if you're interested, there's still more stuff. I added Longaberger baskets to my list today, too. You can find my list HERE. If you just want to see the baskets I have available, check out this PHOTO ALBUM (prices are negotiable). Ok, now to the stampin' stuff...

Stamp Sets: Priceless, So Swirly Wheel
Ink: VersaMark, Purely Pomegranate, Basic Gray
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink Textured
Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, Pretties Kit (half pearl)
Size: 3" x 3"
For the Bashful Blue sentiment, I stamped off with the Basic Gray because it just seemed too dark when I didn't. I did repetitive stamping (stamping one with a just-inked stamp, then immediately stamping another without re-inking) on the Purely Pomegranate ones, as well, and it was an interesting effect. It almost looks like a shadow, but it doesn't photograph to save it's life! These were for stampingwithlove's 3x3 card swap.
The next project I did was a mini album for Josh's mom, so she could see the kids. I used an old (but brand new in the package) Creative Memories Photo Sharing Card that I found lying around. The old style was an accordion style sheet of paper that you can fit 11 pictures on if you use the front and back. Anyway, that's what I used. I wrote the card as if it were Latte writing. I think it turned out pretty darn cute if I do say so myself! In any event, I think she'll like it... I used a silver gel pen for the writing, since the card was black. The two pictures I've posted are the title page and the closing page.
Since I've signed up for a TON of swaps, there will be many more posts. Until then...
