Two cards from last weekend

Last weekend, my BFF, PennyO, and her hubby, Patrick, came to visit and celebrate a belated Christmas with us... they also surprised my husband, Brandon, for his 28th birthday.... I can't believe we pulled that one off - he had NO idea!
Penny and I used our time wisely and caught up with each other and really enjoyed each others' company. We attempted to stamp, and all I could squeeze out were these two cards. The first one, I'm almost embarrassed to post, but since it was my first attempt at a card in months, I guess I have a good excuse. I was so excited to be able to use one of the new tools I got for Christmas (Making Memories Tag Curler) that I really didn't put much thought into my card... hence the BEAUTIFUL blue card below. (can you sense the sarcasm?)

The next card, I am a little more pleased with. I cased the layout from Penny, and I also used similar colors to the card she was making. I am semi-happy with this card. I am definately convinced that I need the Baroque Stamp set from SU! I'm sending this card to my new hairdresser. She cut my hair last week and she would LOVE this card.

You can see I got excited with my tag curler again... it took a little while for me to figure out how to get it "just right," but I finally got it.

Thanks for looking in on me... leave a comment & come back soon!

Have a STAMPTASTIC day!

Hi I'm another from SBS10, both cards are great, we don't get 'Bellas' here in New Zealand unfortunately, but my little girl is a Bella (Isabella) so that makes up for it.
