If time flies when you are having fun, then I will have to tell you that it was at warp speed this week.  We just completed our Winter 2013 Camp Stamp-in-Oga and it was simply wonderful.  I am hoping to spend some time loading photos and samples to our Camp Blog and Facebook Page.  It looks to be a snowy couple of days so hopefully I can start working on that.  One of the requests from a Camp-in-ogie was that I would publicly report the EXACT number of cards that I finished this weekend.  Supposedly I've been known to "chat?"  Who knew…I'm not saying how many where original creations and how many where just finishing and cleaning up excess cardstock packets from camp.  I shouldn't have to differentiate, right?  It's kind of like stepping on the scale with your shoes on.  A slight fudge factor is implied.  So I've finished 17 1/4 cards.  (the quarter comes from 2 cards NOT included in the the count that just needed one simple punch added.  :)  I'm going to take credit for everything I can.  Now, Cheryl on the other hand…I'm not sayin the exact number she made but I will say that I swept the challenge.  🙂

Here's a card that I stamped this weekend, that started out as a "finish the cardstock" packet and morphed into another completely new card.  The white and Primrose layers where actually the inside and the outside was punched out butterflies.

Oh, Hello Card Sample

I like it SO much that I think we will stamp this card at my Hostess Club on Thursday, Feb 7th and Fri, Feb 8th.  I run my Open House, drop-in style and my hostesses, guests and the public, in general, can stop in and create their projects anytime during the listed hours.  Thurs – 5:30pm – 9pm ; Fri – 1pm to 9pm.  It's so much fun.  Hostess stamp for free with a $20 order and anyone can participate with a $25 order.  Come on over.  Simply RSVP so that I can reserve a packet for you!  stampwithsarah@wi.rr.com
