Sunday afternoon, I got together with my friends Lori and Evalyn to stamp and gossip and snack. Evalyn really knows how to bring the goodies. I worked on a birthday card for my sister-in-law Julia whose birthday was yesterday. She is a dancer and dance teacher, so I wanted to use this Ballerina Hilda stamp, even though Julia is more of a modern dance kind of girl. I think she liked it and the gift when she opened it Tuesday while Jessica and Aspen played, not really together. I can’t wait until they actually play together. I used the awesome Sweet Stop Sketch #82. They always have such inspiring sketches.

This second card started out as a Valentine’s card to send to Operation Write Home. Their Valentine deadline is January 7th. However, I didn’t have a Valentine’s sentiment that fit, so I changed it into a “Just Because” card. OWH always needs that type of card. I used Jen del Muro’s Sketch for You to Try. I especially liked her take using different colored polka dot paper, so I decided to do the same. I used a sweet digi image for the Stamp Something November Digi Day challenge. I like how it turned out, although, I kinda wish I hadn’t used the two small heart brads.
