So, I couldn't stop with Santa . . . .

She was much harder to do.
First try: She looked too young and glamorous;
Second Try: She looked too... chubby? Need to resize her nose!
Third try and very pleased.
Presenting . . . .

Mrs. Claus!

An image, a stamped image . . .

For our next Scrapbook Club meeting, we are having a stamped image swap. Here's what's involved. We stamp and/or emboss our stamps on a plain piece of cardstock and swap these out. Above is an example above which I got from my friend Sherri.

I love it when the image is already embossed because that's just not my forte. Well, taking the image, I color and create a card. Wa-laaa,

. . . a Birthday Card!

This type of swap is a great idea for getting more for those stamps that are collecting dust (you know we have LOTS of them!) and "transforming" them into new ones.

Have a great evening!
