Stamping Saturday's!

How is everyone today? I love Saturdays, I spend my day stamping and doing ultimately whatever I want. The joys of having two grown children... :) I miss them but love my time. Today I made some new cards with a new Stampin' Up set called For Father . This set will be released to the public in the Mini Occassions Catalog that will be available on March 1st. I love this set, it is so good for a masculine card, I don't know about any of the rest of you but I have a real hard time with them. Images suitable for men are difficult to come by also, that could be a good reason eh? I love the apple image and the tool image is the biggest reason I bought it, my husband owned and operated his own construction company for a few years. He is busy constructing thing like teardrop campers. We have one and I love to camp in the summer now, at one time we had a 37' 5th wheel and I like the smaller teardrop much better, not so much to clean. With the snow we are getting in Wyoming right now I can tell you I can't wait for summer!! So based on that is my second card, this one is done with no stamps and very little work, if you like this type of card check these out. Fun and Easy. Here is a link to Scrapnextras Card, it is gorgeous! Mine just uses plain cardstock that has been inked while hers is using Designer Paper (DP). It makes me think of my garden in the summer, warm and fussy. LOL Hope you like checking these out and I would love to see yours when you get it done. Please leave a comment and I will come check out your blog or card. Thanks everyone and have a great Saturday!

Hi, Jean-
Thanks for commenting on my card on SCS! I LOVE the quote you have up on your SCS signature (about leaving a comment for someone). So I decided to check out your blog and leave YOU a comment. I just LOVE your apples card...just beautiful colors & such a pro-fessional application! Since I just started my OWN blog & am frus-trated that I'm not drawing any traffic, I figure I better "do unto others, etc." before I start complaining! But if you get a sec sometime, I'd be honored to have you take a look at mine: http://erinspaperpleasures.blogspot.com/
Thank you again for posting on my card! Erin
