January 2009

Have you heard about Jen del Muro’s fabulous blog candy? Companies including Cornish Heritage Farms, Scor Pal, Flourishes, Verve, Unity Stamp Company, Storage Units Inks and More, Just Rite Stampers, and many more have donated to this fantastic cause. Jen has asked stampers to send cards to Dallas Baptist University for their international students. Remember being in college and how lonesome it can get? I can’t imagine being thousands of miles away from home and in school, so I hope my card brings some joy to a student.

It’s been a long time since I participated in one of Kristina’s color challenges. It’s freezing outside and I’m in hibernation mode…what a perfect opportunity to get back into the swing of all things stamping. 🙂


This challenge uses the colors ruby red, pretty in pink, pumpkin pie and whisper white. I had fun with this one and used some stamps I bought a while ago and just haven’t had a chance to use. Enjoy…and I’ll be back tomorrow! Stay warm.
