Pretty Butterflies and Sweet Dragon Flies

Love these winged things? These are two cards I created with the January Release Sets from the {Stamps} of Life. The first card features Butterfl2build. I love the level of ease that these sets allow you to accomplish clean and simple cards so quickly.

These two cards are created with the Creations2full stamp set. Lot's of fun creating with these too!!! I'm not much of a techniquey stamper, but I did have fun creating the background for the first card.

In addition to Creations2fill, this set also features Flower2build, which is a fun big flower (the mid sized pink flower, the smaller flower is found in Creations2fill). I really love how Stephanie has designed a lot of her sets to work together! Brilliant!

I have to say that I'm feeling a little bummed about sitting here in Ontario today. As many of my friends have arrived in California for the CHA show, I'm feeling a little sorry for myself ;-(
I hope that they all have the best time there and I'm hoping to catch the Chicago Show this Summer. One saving grace is that I'm off to New York City for a long weekend in May. I'm pretty excited about this as I will be doing this with my DS Jonathon, My Mom and My Dad and some other favourite people! I've never been to NYC and am really looking forward to visiting the Historical Sites, Ground Zero and of course I totally hope to catch at least one Broadway Show as I've always been a great fan of musicals! Ahhh the weekend is coming on fast! Any plans?

This weekend I'm going out to see my Friends' Brothers Band. I think a night of dancing my face off should take my mind off the balmy California weather. I'm also having a couple of my good friends over Saturday afternoon for a little stamping AND if the weather is good, joining some more pals for Ice Fishing. Although we don't have a hut, I'm hoping that it won't be so cold that we'll freeze our hinies off out there! I have a lot planned and am looking forward to next week when I launch my Winter/Spring Classes. I LOVE teaching and having the ladies over to create!

Hope you have a Great weekend!
