AmberInk - Fan Mail

Awww, I'm feeling kind of sad. This is my last project for my term as an Amber Ink torchbearer. I know I will still be using their fun images and papers but it just won't be the same. On Friday, March 17th, I'll recap my Amber Ink projects and the following Monday the new torchbearers will be announced.

This is another card that I made for Operation Write Home. I am really working on getting my box filled so I can ship it out soon. I had to use Mod Kitch Kitsch and Say It Like It's 1959!. These sets are so perfectly punny - I love them! If you aren't comfortable using digi stamps, they also come in clear stamp sets.

Before I go today, I wanted to tell you about a new line of digi stamps on Amber Ink. The line is called "Get Them While They're Hot - Sheen On" It is a line of sentiments inspired by Charlie Sheen and his recent rants. I soooo wanted to make a card with one this week end but I ran out of time. Go check them out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great week!

Your little "fan" card is too cute!

I don't know whether to laugh or cry about the charlie sheen sentiments, though!

Love that kraft cs and that embossing folder. Adorable card, especially with the orange and the distressed edges!
I know how precious time is which is why I generally don't even post and pass on any blog awards, but you always inspire me so I left you a blog award on my blog. (I hope it's ok, )
Cheryl - you rocked as an Amber Ink torch bearer!!!! They've got to be soooo happy with you!!!

Great final card. Love that fan and sentiment :)
I almost picked up a HA fan at my lss, but alas, put it down....might have to go get it!!

Awesome card, Cheryl! Lovin' that retro image and I love how you put it all together. Perfect card for OWH.

I am seriously laughing so hard at the Charlie Sheen digis! That guy is a nut but some of those sentiments would be so stinkin' perfect for cards! Did you see the video on YouTube with him in "Warlock Cooking"? Insane! :)

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
