School's Out!

I feel sheepish! It's been almost a month since my last post again. ACK! Maybe now that school is out I can focus on stamping (which needs to happen or I'll lose all my customers!) and getting my creations up on my blog (which needs to happen or I'll lose all my readers!)

Anyway, yesterday was the last day of school and I made all the teachers (5 of them) I work with a monogram gift set. I'm so mad, though! I forgot to take pictures of them. Drat! I have to say, they turned out pretty. I used different DSP for each one, and I couldn't decide which one was the prettiest! (which is fitting, I guess, if you think of your cards like kids.... you love them all equally but differently!)

So aside from that stamp-a-thon, I have only made a few thank you cards here and there. This one is my favorite! I will miss, miss, miss my Baja Breeze! It's by far the most used ink EVER in my collection. I hope I love the new In-Colors as much. (I have them already, thanks to the preorder, and I'm still on the fence. I need to USE them to love them, I think).
