I'm baaaaack!

Did you even notice that I was gone? LOL! Well I was, and this is where I was at!
St. Louis baby! I had a connvention to attend for work and boy was it BORING! It was an Environmental, Safety, and Occupatioal Health Conference, doesn't that sound fun? NOT! The best part was the shopping and food afterwards, lol! I also got to meet my friends Christi and Robyn! They were a HOOT and we had so much fun together!!!
Okay, well as you can imagine I am battling jet lag something awful so I'm just going to get down to business if thats okay with you? Great:)
Today is Monday and the chicks and I decided to create Grandparent cards! Apparently, there IS a grandparents day (I thought everyday was grandparents day???) isn't until the 13th of September, so I made a card for my Grandma, her bday is in May! That's sooner than September, lol!
The stamp set I used is called Women of Life by Papertrey Ink. Such a fun set:)
Check out what my other girls made for grandparents day!
My next card is for this weeks Viva la Verve challenge! I designed 14 sketches while sitting through the lectures in last weeks convention, bwahahaha! I guess if nothing else, the conference gave me great inspiration for sketches;) So this sketch came together just as easy as I was hoping! Such a fun sketch, check it out and all the details HERE!
That yummy paper is by Bo Bunny! I got it at the LSS in St. Louis that Christi and Robyn took me too, awesome store! The stamp sets are BRAND NEW from Verve! Just released last week:) The butterfly is from Beautiful Kindness and the sentiment is from Circular Sayings.
You know what I just noticed, I didn't even edit these pics in photoshop yet. And now it's too late and I'm too lazy so hopefully they look okay on your screen, lol! awww well, I'm blamin it on jet lag:)
Be back tomorrow with more! TA!

Amber, I'm "new" to your blog - honestly can't remember whose blog led me to you, but I bookmarked it to visit again! I love your artwork, and noticed you were an EHSS conference. I'm a CSP in Arizona - healthcare field. (That's my day job - my real calling is scrapping and stamping!).
