Halloween Swaps

Hi Everyone! I am back with a couple more Halloween Swap photos. These are for the SCS swap hosted by SavvyKat. I really loved that I could punch out the spider perfectly with my SU! oval punch. The googly eyes made it more fun too! Can you see the little ghost peeking out at you from the inside of the trick or treat card?

Swap Frenzy!

Ok, I don't know what I have gotten myself into! One day I decide to jump into everything all at once. I started the blog, started posting on SCS and doing swaps. Now, I really do love stamping but often find myself hoarding stuff more than using it. My biggest weakness is patterned paper, but that's another story. Ok, so I went a little overboard on the swap commitments but I love them. It's so exciting to get that envelope in the mail. It's such a nice surprise after a long day at work. So here are some pics from my latest swaps. Enjoy! I will post the recipes a little later, just wanted to get the pics up like I promised.

Blog Update!

It's official! I am finally able to upload again. My sweet hubby hooked me up with RoadRunner DSL last night, so I could get back to posting. Now that the former DSL nightmare is over, I can get this blog rolling. I will be posting my SCS swap cards later on tonight, so be sure to check back.
