New cards to post

Ahhhh, it feels good to be back to stamping again!!!

Glad the 'bug' is almost gone and I am feeling like my 'normal' self again...whatever normal is for me ;-)

Here is a card I made, yesterday, using the Fresh as Spring promo set from TAC.

Sadly, though, it was really popular and they had to pull the promo...as they ran out of the accessories that came with the special. We are hoping that they will offer the stamp set sometime in a future catalog.

The paper is part of the paper pack, "Gentle Beginnings" that was received with the special. There were also coordinating eyelets but I chose not to use them on this card.

I have to say, that I absolutely LOVE the little lamb in this set.

BUT, the good news is....you can sign up for a drawing for the Fresh Spring Things set...by following this link

http://www.theangelcompany.net/Promos_FreshSpringGiveaway.html

I would love it if you would use my name as your Angel....but then again, if you already have an Angel demonstrator, that's ok, too!

If you DO win, please let me know.....I'll be crossing my fingers for you! :-)

Good Luck!!!!

I planned on doing the drawing before I went to bed....but didn't realize I would still be up at 2:30am. So, the drawing was a tad late.

I used the Random.Org generator, even tho there were only six comments....and it chose

Random Integer Generator

Here are your random numbers:

Tracey, send your snail mail address to my e-mail and let me know if you would like me to add ribbon or if you would rather add your own colors to your calendar.

Congratulations!!!

I"M BACK....I hope!!

Wow...anyone else have that weird crud that's going around?  I have been hearing that it hits everyone different.  My hubby had it for a few days but then was able to go back to work.  I, however, have had it for 13 days and counting...BUT today is the first day I actually feel like it's starting to leave my body!  Still have the sniffles and cough and the achies but the chills are gone....I hope.  I don't have to wear a coat in the house any longer.  I am not kidding you....I have never been one that has to have the heat up or sit under afghans...but I was covered head to toe with PJ's, socks, a nightgown over my PJ's and then a heavy robe over all of that and then sitting under blankets to keep the chills away! 

Then, I graduated to wearing a fleece coat....and today, first day.....I am FREEEEEEEE!!!!  I am back to wearing short sleeves.....and not having to sit under layers of blankets.

And, sleep...my gosh...I should be caught up on my sleep till I turn 70!!!  Which is years away!

I am so excited to be back online again and getting caught up!!  I am looking forward to sharing soon!!!  I haven't felt up to doing anything for the past two weeks, but I will be working on a tutorial for you and hopefully will get it up this weekend.

Before I came down sick, I had made some cute little calendars.  I got the directions here.

Anyway, just because so many of you have hung in there waiting and waiting for me to post something .....I am going to give one away!

So, leave a comment on this post and I will draw a winner on Monday night, March 16th.  That's only three days!

As you can see, I haven't added ribbons yet.  Who ever wins can let me know if they would rather I add them or maybe you would like to add them to go with a color scheme.

Have a great night!

Hugs,

Char

Happy March

It's March already...which means spring is just around the corner!!

I have been really busy these last couple of weeks so haven't posted and now I have some rotten virus that I am trying to get over. I just had to pop in and let you know why I haven't been posting.

I have several things to share, that I have made recently, as soon as I feel up to sitting at the computer for more than a couple of minutes.

And, I also plan to do the tutorial for the Flip Flop Book so that you can follow along and make one yourself. Hopefully, this 'whatever I have' will be gone in a few days and I can get back to doing what I love.

Have a great day,

Hugs,
Char
