Walking on campus

Betty sent me to a cool web site that maps out walking routes. Here is mine that I created on campus...

Now the trick is to actually walk this loop daily and keep track using the workout tools provided at MapMyWalk!

I'll have to take some photos of the route along the way - Cornell's campus is very pretty!

Faux Pocket Challenge

Here is the Faux Pocket Challenge card that I created from last Saturday's day of stamping fun! I brought 4 packets that included the precut cardstock and string that everyone had to use though they could use whatever else was handy in Diane's amazing stamping stash to finish their card. We all have such different tastes and of course we were all drooling over what the other's came up with! Here is the links to everyone's cards...

This is the inside - as you can see, it is a Sweet 16 card that I will be giving to my Goddaughter (hopefully she won't see this before tomorrow!). She will cringe at the "Sweet" part so I tried to grunge it up a bit.

I used Stampin' Up cardstock (Chocolate Chip, Bliss Blue and Whisper White), Filigree background stamp, ink (Chocolate Chip and Brocade Blue), spiral and tab punches; Flourishes clear stamps, numbers stamps from Purple Onion Designs and two different size square punches.

Stamping fun at Diane's!

Judy, Jenn and I spent the day stamping with Diane at her house on Saturday - what fun! We each brought a project for the others to stamp then Judy had an extra project for us to do that she had left over from the last SplitCoast Central New York gathering in Syracuse. I also brought along a "challenge" packet where you had to use everything in the packet but could raid Diane's mega stash of stuff. We are all going to post that challenge tomorrow so you can compare them! Diane wanted to play with her new Cuttlebug 3x3 Combo Rose Frame so we made a very elegant card that I will save for someone's wedding or anniversary - very classy. Last but not least, we created four cards (one for each of us of course!) by Round Robin. Jenn started then passed the cards on to me, then on to Judy, then Diane and around again to create this....

We used Stampin' Up card stock (Gable Green, Only Orange, Tempting Turquoise, and White), punches and stamps. The saying is Tim Holtz's from Stampers Anonymous. The stem is corrugated and the center of the petals is a Prima flower. Cuuute!
