I stamp with the most volume or productivity while watching TV. I cannot sit and watch a movie. My hands must be moving or I have to have one eye on a magazine. It's so hard for me to just plop on the sofa (like everyone else in my family!) and just stare at the television. So….. one very productive way for me to keep my hands busy is to stamp.

I used Party Hearty (pg. 39), Time to Party and Crazy for Cupcakes (both on page 41), Sanded (pg. 129). the Pretties kit, Crystal Effects, our rhinestone brads, non-SU glitter glue, non-SU ribbon snippets and non-Stampin' Up! scrapbook paper (forgive me – I want to make a dent in all my non-SU stuff and this was a furtherance of that goal I've been working on for months). I have many more cards in the works but this is what I've finished so far. (Note: the last pink card is for my daughter Kirsten's 19th birthday next month – you can't see it in the photo but I put a dot of Crystal Effects on the "1" and the "9" on that card – BTW Crystal Effects is awesome at gluing on the half pearls to the card – has to dry overnight but it adheres it really well).
