Thank Goodness for Glenda!

I still haven't been able to stamp anything on my own, so I'm super grateful that tonight I was able to attend Glenda's stamp camp, where I made 8 amazing! projects. I only have time to upload one tonight - this awesome card made with Afternoon Tea designer paper (my current favorite!) and the Live Your Dream stamp set from the Occasions mini catalog.

The card looks absolutely awesome when closed, but the best part about it is the closing "mechanism".

I took several pictures of this card from all angles so that you can see the "doors and the "latch". I thought the way Glenda coupled the slit punch with the large oval punch to create a latch was pretty darned brilliant, and you can bet I will be doing this on future cards!

This is what the inside of the card looks like, stamped with a topical sentiment! Really, it's just a super special card!

Thanks Glenda for a wonderful evening of stamping where I didn't have to prep or design any of the projects. It was nice to take a few hours for myself and relax a little, before getting back home to Stew, who is still eating great but not producing as much waste as we would like. If the doesn't start to manufacture some overnight, it will be back to baby food and water syringes tomorrow, which I know he'll hate but does seem to get him "moving". I know these updates are probably getting tedious, but I also know some of you want to know what's happening (at least until we're completely out of the woods) so I'll keep reporting until there's no more reason to, one way or another. But in the coming days I will also have lots more stamping stuff as I get back into a bit of a normal groove!

Great card...kudos to Glenda!!!
Thanks for sharing...I was unable to attend :(

I haven't been blogging lately so I just now read the updates about Stewie!!!!
We are rooting for good health for him over, DH, Lily, Jaxx, Neddie, Cheyenne (our 4 furball cats) & Jasper (iguana).
So from one animal lover to another I am sorry he is under the weather but it sounds like you both are nursing him back to health!!!

Keep us posted!
Have a nice weekend!
