JCBC #22 --- Stamping with Jany... again :) and a few other cards

It's been a whole month since I've been around Blog-ville and I really missed it. Unfortunately, my working place asked for every inch of me during this last month and I was so burned out when I got home late in the evening that I couldn't concentrate on anything.

I did manage to make a few cards while I was 'away' but didn't get around to posting them. They were mostly birthday cards I needed for co-workers and friends and some of them are gone (given) without being scanned or photographed. I had to work on them late at night and have them ready for first thing next morning.


I am trying to catch up a bit and see if I remember how to post :D

The week that is just ending has been the 22nd at Just Christmas and Birthday Cards - I can't believe it's been so long since it's started!

Sketch #22 is a creation of Linda's and is a lovely sketch which provided much fun in working with it - Thank you, Linda! :)

My Birthday card...

I've used my very first Penny Black stamps - Critter Party.
I LOVE them!
They are all so adorable, I wish I was more talented to honour and show them off better.
Cardstock and papers are from Dovecraft and the sentiment stamp is from Imaginisce.

My Christmas card...

For this one I've rotated the sketch.
The image (Christmas baubles) is a digi-stamp from the very talented Chris Dark.
[You might want to check out her new digi-store, she's adding new stamps all the time and the designs are absolutely awesome - love her landscapes/backgrounds and will acquire them soon]
The cardstock and paper are from Papermania and the rest are bits and pieces from my big stash provided my my great friend Sue.


Stamping with Jany continues to be a fun-filled adventure. :) She has just sent us her second TAC kit (which is available for purchase) and I fell in love with the little skunks. The papers are also very very nice, in green and pink - so bright and happy looking.

The entire kit includes:
  • 6X6 mimi paper collection pieces (1 of each pattern totaling 5)
  • 6X6 mimi cardstock pieces (1 of each color totaling 5)
  • 4 pieces sized A2 with stamped images of all the images in the stamp set.
  • Scrapper Floss from the Citrus collection (lime-green)

Would you like a kit like this? It cost: $5.00 Shipping (regular mail to US) included and is available at Jany's blog

Here is the first card I made using Jany's new kit and following Jill's sketch.

Isn't the lil' skunk-ette a sweetie? :D


I'll end this post with two cards I've made with one of the gorgeous stamps from Whiff of Joy's "Spring Stamp Kit 2009" . [I love myself for getting it while it was on offer :D]

Cardstock and papers from Papermania, sentiment stamps from a See D's set.

Thank you for bearing with me and my crazy life schedule. :)

Have a wonderful week ahead!

Oh Mada, those last two cards are particularly beautiful!!! Your coloring is fantastic and your choices of colours and cards/papers is always spot-on. In fact this goes for all your cards, just the W-o-J stamps are adorable too :)

Buna Mada, ma bucur sa te ''vad'', mi-am inchipuit ca esti superocupata cu serviciul! De asta nici nu ti-am mai trimis nici macar un e-mail, m-am gandit sa nu te ''oblig'' sa gasesti un mod si timp sa-mi raspunzi!
Frumoase felicitari ai facut, mai ales ultima cu mov si verde e grozava!
Sper ca te-ai mai linistit si ti-ai mai revenit!
Te-am pupat,
