Stamp-A-Faire 2017 is over.

Well, another year of playing along with Colleen in PTI's annual SAF.  We always have so much fun creating together.  It's nice to have someone along side of you when you get stuck and need some help or give you a suggestion.  We work so well together.   But tomorrow I head back to the real world and back to responsibilities.  
Thanks my friend for such a great time.  Love you.....

Thanks for stopping by.

SAF 2017 8th Anniversary - Bronze with Jessica

This is the last card I have been able to create, but hope to do one more for the 10th Anniversary tin & aluminum .  We didn't do the 9th Anniversary - pottery.  
Col and I have certainly been scrambling cause we are already are 3 hours behind when PTI starts at 7:00 am.  It is 4:00 am here and we need our beauty sleep, you know.  We have pretty much been in the craft room for 3 straight days.  Today we are taking a rest from stamping and going shopping for my trip to Hawaii in September.

SAF 2017 with Stephanie Gold 2nd Anniversary - Cotton

Wow, really struggled with this card.  Tried to do a winter scene with snow, then a Hot Air Balloon with clouds.  Nothing I did, was good enough for me to post.  And this one is just OK for me.

Color Throwdown #457 & Addicted to Stamps and More #256 Anything Goes

Wow, we didn't get a lot of card making done today.  First of all we went for our morning walk and then both of us had a massage, which felt great.  My shoulders and lower back have been giving me some trouble.  I think from lifting my dad up.  Then we decided to sit in the sun for about an hour and that felt really good too.
After that we came into the craft room to play and this is the card I made  for Color Throwdown
