I’ve been keeping a secret!

Good Morning Stampers!

About a month ago I got an e-mail from CherylAnn Robinson.  I was so surprised when I read it that I cheered.  She has asked me to be one of the designers on her Stampin’ Fun and Friends online stamping classes.

I had set a goal for myself to try and participate in one of these types of forums and now I have met that goal.  The session begins on July 25th.  Since I am one of the designers I have been given one free pass for the site.  So would you like a free pass?  Here’s how you can get one.  My card today uses the challenge at CherylAnn’s blog so to win my pass you need to comment on my card today.  I will pick one number using Random.org to win the pass next Friday at 7:00 p.m. and announce the winner on Saturday morning.  Only one comment per person!  So make a comment and let’s see if you win.

Before I share today’s card, I wanted to let you know that I was chosen as a top 3 winner at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday

So do you want to see my card for today?  I used the sketch challenge at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday  


I cut my background paper wrong so I flipped the sketch – there is always a way to fix a mistake 🙂 .  Here is what I created.

And now for some cuteness.  Zoie and her mom are spending a few days with me.  A good friend of Jess’ sent her this adorable dress.  I had to get some pics and this one was just screaming to be shared :).

Isn’t she just adorable.  See that great smile on her face.  It is always there!  She is such a happy baby.

Okay now don’t forget to comment on my card.  Thanks for looking and have a Super Saturday!



  1. i know I have to comment on the card, but Zoie takes precidence over the card. What a cutie. I love the sweetness in her face and the dress just adds to her sweetness. Now onto the card. I liked how you made the flower with circles and the leavess with designer paper. It was very pretty, liked the colors, but it took second place to Zoie my friend. Congratulations on being picked as well. Sandy

  2. Yourm card is awesome and your granddaughter is soooooooo sweet. i wish i had your talent and I wish I had a granddaughter. Thanks for playing at Try Stampin!

  3. I don't know where my post went but I know I sent one. I know comment moderation is enabled but it has been over a day. Here it is again, or something pretty close.

    Robbie I love the card with all the colors and the textures. The textures add so much and I need to do this with my cards. As to the granddaughter it would be great to be able to bottle that cuteness. You would be a gazillionaire. She is adorable.

  17. Your card is great!! I'm always looking for a way to incorporate punches into my workshops, it not only sells the punches, but helps my customers use the ones they have already bought. They in turn "brag" to their friends about their "awesome” demonstrator and they come, they see, they buy. I must also say you are truely a lucky lady to have such a sweet looking grandbaby! I can't wait until our children feel we should be granted the great honor of becoming a grandparents (okay only one is married and her husband has been on constant deployment). Thank you for sharing!

  18. Your card is great!! I'm always looking for a way to incorporate punches into my workshops, it not only sells the punches, but helps my customers use the ones they have already bought. They in turn "brag" to their friends about their "awesome” demonstrator and they come, they see, they buy. I must say you are truly blessed with a very pretty granddaughter. I can’t wait until the day our children feel we are deserving of a grandchild, (okay so only one is married and her husband has been on constant deployment for their four years of marriage!) Thank you for sharing both the card and grandbaby.

  19. Congratulations! Both on being a designer and on that beautiful granddaughter. She is adorable and that dress is precious.

    Loved your card and your use of the punches and DSP.

  20. Looks like a really fun class – I'd love to try it !!!

  21. Adorable! And so is your card, Robbie! I hope I win the free pass.

  22. Wow, you must feel great for being chosen, but it is they who are really lucky you are very talented. I love the fact that you do not leave the inside blank(I always have)I will be casing that idea.

  25. Robbie, Congrats! Your card is super. Great flower. The baby is adorable. Enjoy. They grow up so darn fast.

  26. Zoie sure is a cutie! I like how you used the circles to create the flower plus incorporated several die/punched pieces overall to create the card. Gives it lots of visual interest and texture.

  27. Robbie, I love your creation and will definitely be CASEing it for my stamp clubs. And Zoie is a doll! I love her sweet smile which also brought a smile to my face. She reminds me of our 3 1/2 mo. old first grandbaby–he's also such a happy little fellow!

  28. Cute card! I've done the same thing with DSP (cut it the wrong way and then had to modify). Looks like your adjustment worked.
