It's 2008!!!!

Happy new year, everyone! You, the few, the faithful, the What Nots and Whimsies readers! Did you have a wonderful Christmas and New Years? We sure did and now we are happily back into our school/work/stamping routine! AND, since I think I semi figured out how to take a picture with the gloomy, rainy Oregon skies as the background, I thought I would show you a couple of my fun things I've done lately! The first is a little wooden box that I papered up for my sister-in-law. I'm working really hard to get her hooked on stamping, so I made this cute little box and filled it with a bunch of those Studio G $1 stamp sets from Michaels. . . isn't it so fun? I bought a couple more just because it was such a fun project to do.

Then I got to bust out my new set from Stampin' Up called Bronc Buster. I love this set! I made a thank you card for my husband's boss. Check this out. . . my husband works at Garmin (remember the TV ad for their GPS units: "getta, getta, getta Garmin") and has been putting in some long hours and overtime on a project. One day his boss gave him a note thanking him for all his hard work and included movie tickets and gift cards for dinner at Red Robin. HOW COOL IS THAT?!?!?!?! Seriously, Garmin is an amazing company. . . great products AND they treat their people so well! So, on my first try with Bronc Buster, I whipped up this cool hemp cord/copper embossed/sorta masculine thank you card. Check it out. . .
Since the card is on dark brown cardstock, I put a cream colored liner inside, aged it with some distressing ink and stamped the "Thank U" stamps from the True Friend set. Love it!

Well, folks, that's it for today. . . have a wondrous afternoon. . . blessings to you!
