I've been hit with the "nesting" phase of my pregnancy!! With only 3 weeks left to go(and you better believe that I'm COUNTING down the days!!)I have an unrelenting urge to have my house "just so" and that's been taking my time! I've worked a little on revamping my stamping' space upstairs...and as soon as I'm hoping to get some photos taken in the next day or so to share! It is so great to have a dedicated "space" that is all mine! Well, as I say that, I do have to share with my daughter. She is 3(going on about 18)and she feels the need to pull up her chair to my table and help me with all my work-which is great fun, most of the time. She got really good with an aquapainter and watercoloring fun!!

Anyway, I have been working on getting some things done and wanted to share a few things! I sincerely love this paper by Basic Grey! I can't stand how much I love it! These were all super quick and easy..and to be honest, that is how I like 'em to come! I love the colors of the paper-Purely Pomegranate, Old Olive, and Chocolate Chip(SU), are the colors I used. I love the satin ribbon that was in the Stampin' Up! holiday mini, I got two spool of each color..and I'm so glad! I really do love it, it adds a nice touch of beauty to each card! I used the Sincere Salutaions stamp set from SU, love that's quite timeless and classic. I used a Mega Scallop Oval Punch and a Super Super Oval Punch by Marvy Uchida. I have found that I LOVE those punches. I have a few more to aquire...but really, punches are your best friends! They make the whole papercrafting bit so much easier! I haven't gotten into the die-cut machine yet...but I really do love punches!

These cards are quite self-explanitory...just a nice classy note to tell some of my friends how much I am missing them!

Thanks a bundle for stopping by! I've got more to share, so be sure to check back soon!

These are all lovely! Simply Elegant (isn't that a good name for a blog? LOL)

Glad you posted again. I can't wait to see your craft room work area.

I hope the remainder of your pregnancy isn't too uncomfortable:)

These are works of art!
You have great color combo skills and ultimate talent. Maybe that's enhanced by pregnancy?
Best wishes for you and your growing family!
