Aaaahhhhh.....hear that?! Everyone has left the house (except the cat) and I've finally had time to actually get some much needed stamping time in. I had to prepare for my Stamp Club and made this Mother's Day Card. I used no ribbon, punches or accessories which is very out of the ordinary for me! I even used Rose Red which is a color I never use. I really like how it turned out though and I hope my Stamp Club does too. Besides Mother's Day I think this would make a great Birthday, Thinking of You or Friend card. I like to make up a few of these and leave off the greetings and stamp those on when I need a card.

1st Blog

I've been thinking of doing this for a while now. Today I decided to take the plunge. First I wanted to think of a "title" for my blog. So after much deliberation (about an hour and some consultation with my thesaurus) I came up with "Stamping Visions & Chocolate Morsels". What do you think?! You see I love Rubber Stamping and Chocolate. Really, can you have one without the other?! I'm looking forward to sharing my stamping creations, expertise (?) and "adventures" here. I've been stamping for almost 10 1/2 years. Much to my DH's dismay. When I first discovered the wonder of stamping he was glad I had something I enjoyed doing as a hobby. It has become a little.........ok, a LOT more than that now. I've taken over the "play" room (the boys out grew it) and it is now my "Stamp Room". My collection of stamps, paper & the tools I "need" now occupy this space. This is also my haven as when I'm in there my family hardly ever bothers me. I have a small TV, VCR/DVD player there and a CD player. I even have a secret stash of chocolate there. After all, can you REALLY stamp without chocolate?! I really should be cleaning my kitchen or something but why? It will still be there when I'm done I suspect. Right now I think I'll go down to my stamp room and create something to share later. (and have some chocolate....dark's my fav) Until then. Happy Stampin'!
