From the Stamping Studio...

I usually like to wait to post the things I make until after the person I've made them for receives them. But, by the time that happened we were all sick, lol! So here is what I made a couple of weeks ago...

Frog ATC for a swap

Castle card for a swap
I used two new dies: one for flowers, one for rick-rack!

Cute cupcake ATC for a swap
This was actually much cuter in person!

Evil cupcake ATC for a swap
My last swap until after the move!

My "Lil Sis", aka Grand Pooba, lost her sweet dog Dozer and I decided to send her an explosion box like I had for my other friend. It's a little scrapbook of sweet pictures I got from her blog. Rest in peace!!

This was a thank you card using bargello.

This was the first time I had tried the technique called "spotlighting"!

This was a commissioned piece.

I saw these and had to try it out myself!
A little tea holder purse!!

Same thing, only holding chocolate!
My nails look nice for a change, lol!

I have more commissioned work to do (THANK YOU!!), and of course some challenge work to get done so I plan on being busy crafting while I still can!!! I am going to be so lost without my crafting goodies! I'll have to console myself with Italian coffee and sightseeing, lol!

The box for Pooba is a wonderful tribute.

You've been busy. :)

All your work is so beautiful, Jeannie. I know that the exploding memory box will be so appreciated. It will bring tears, I'm sure, because it takes a long time to get past that really sharp pain of grief. But your sis will love the box and you all the more for making it.

I especially love the froggy one and the one with chocolate :)

P.S.
Yes, your nails look great!

The explosion box you made for me sits on the shelf above my computer monitor so I see it on a regular basis. That was so thoughtful of you. I'm sure Grand Pooba will treasure hers, and the memories inside, as I do mine.

I love the little box that folds out into different pages. I think I want to learn how to make one of those! The chocolate holding paper purse card is fantastic too!!!! Seriously! You make some great stuff!
