The Stamp Cave

A few people have asked me about the rock that I mentioned was in our basement. Hence the name Stamp Cave. Here is an old picture with the rock in it. Also our dog Toby who had 18 Christmas' with us before we had to put him to sleep. He survived gastric blot just like Marley! He was a lot like Marley as well. Crazy dog, a dog only we could love.

Anyway, that's the Rock. I stamp on the other side but as you can see this is a basement that can't be finished.

Tart and Flowery


The other day I saw a card made by Kerin Sylverster on her blog. http://www.kerinstamps.com/ I thought it was really cute but I don't have Petal Pizzazz. Okay, so I wasn't going to let that stop me. I'm a caser at heart. Love to stamp but I have a hard time coming up with my own designs. So this is my take on Kerin's design. I used Basic Gray instead of Black. I like the pink and grey together. I'm not happy with the use of pixie pink in this, I would change it if I did it again. I substituted Tart and Tangy for the Petal Pizzazz. I think it works okay. What do you think?

I just got this photo sent to me recently. Thanks Mary LeClair. Regionals was a blast. I'm going to have to go to convention some day.
