I hope that everyone had a great weekend. I sure did! I finally received the all clear from my doctor – I am off of bed rest! Thank goodness – I really was about to climb the walls from boredom, lol! And I didn’t waste any time. I headed straight for JoAnn’s! Ok, I know, but I hadn’t had my shopping fix in quite a while, so please forgive me :-)! I got a new paper stack from K&Company – Tim Coffey Fall. It has 16 cardstock quality patterned papers, 2 embossed papers, 2 frothed papers, and 4 foiled papers. All are beautiful double sided patterned papers. I also got the matching 4x6 mat pad.
You have to see this paper to really appreciate the vibrant color and texture of the embossed foil. A clear stamp set by TPC Studio called Falling Leaves also jumped into my basket. I have no idea how that happened!?!? It is a value pack that includes not only the clear stamp sheet but also a sheet with adhesive jewels and a sheet of rub-ons!
I can’t wait to try these on some cards and in the mini that I plan on making. Then I gave a private Circut class to two dear people – one an old friend (not as in age, lol) and one that is now a new friend (hey Michelle). We had a lot of fun and plan on getting together for a crop soon. Thanks guys!
I know that I probably overdid it this weekend but it feels so good to get back to crafting again.
Well I also have a few announcements to share with you this morning!
Wow! I hit 50 followers! Wooohooo! I am so excited and thankful for all of you who follow me and read my little blog. I will continue to try my best to inspire and share with you creations from my little corner of the crafting world.
And just as I promised, I am doing my first ever giveaway to celebrate getting to 50 followers! This is going to be so much fun. All you need to do to be eligible for the giveaway is to 1) be a follower, 2) comment on any or all of the posts this week, 3) and if you send a friend to my blog and they follow also, you double your chances!

Just a reminder – HSN will kick off their day of scrapbooking deals with the World Launch of the Cricut Imagine tonight at 11:00pm (central time). I can’t wait to see this machine in action! Try to check it out - or TiVo, DVR, etc!
