Hi there...and no...I really don't mean it.
I'm just grumpy because I have been dealing with a yucky cold/sinus infection that seems to want to hang on and never leave me....sigh. I have 40 gazillionly things on my Christmas to-do list and I'm making NO progress. I feel bad, have no energy and just want to sleep -want to hear the worst part?  I haven't picked up a stamp or ink in about a week....YIKES!

Okay, thanks for listening to me whine (hubby is getting tired of it).  After a week or so of this stuff, I do hope I'm on the upward swing of things. I hope to get a chance to visit your blogs and see what wonderful things you have been creating - I've missed my visits with you all!  And, once I get a bit of shopping and gift wrapping completed, I hope to actually reacquaint myself with some of my favorite stamps and ink!

In the meantime, I have another sweet card that I made for the release of the newest stamp set by The Stamps of Life to share with you today....

The new stamp set, heartlocket2love, is just beautiful and is perfect for Valentines, anniversary or those "just because" cards.

I used the coordinating die set for the heart locket and key (love those dies)

Okay, that's about it for me (thanks again for listening to me whine). I promised myself that if I got a blog post finished and wrapped a few gifts, I could have chocolate and a nap (it's the little things).  So, I'm off to slap some cheery Christmas paper and a bow on a few boxes, pull out my stash of Hershey nuggets and cuddle up with Lola for a couple of hours....see you later....


  1. sorry to hear you've been so sick. we've been fortunate over here (knock on wood!!). This time of year is always so busy and tends to go by extra fast. How is that possible? ;) loooove your key to my heart card. i want to sneak into your crafty room because you seem to have a big stash of awesome papers. ;)
