Casino Fun and LOTS of Kits!

Happy Wednesday!

Just a quick share today to show you what can be accomplished when you have 14 hours with nothing to do.  *lol*  think that never happens?  Well, have kids and volunteer to work a Casino or two and you'll soon find out it DOES happen!  Last month I DID work two Casino nights for the girls' school fundraisers (essentially parents volunteer to work a shift at the Yellowhead Casino and the school receives a portion of the winnings from the night they work).  It's a great opportunity for the schools.  I did this 4 years ago and quickly realized that (as the "chip runner") you pretty much sit and do nothing for 8 hours … so this year I planned ahead and took LOTS of stamping kits with me to work on.  Check out what I accomplished ...

Crazy, right?!  The first picture was one night of stamping, the second was the second night of stamping.  7 hours never went by so quickly!  One of my friends was "working" with me the first night.  Both of us had about 5 Paper Pumpkin kits we hadn't gotten around to making yet so we brought our stash and stamped together.  The BEST way to stamp!  The second night I stamped alone - not as much fun but I got a lot done.  I put together the Cottage Garden Kit, a paper pumpkin kit and the Watercolor kit.  I HIGHY recommend these kits - SO quick and easy to make 18-20 cards.  The Watercolor kit even includes the inks and stamp set to complete the 20 DIFFERENT cards.  A GREAT Christmas gift idea - especially for the hard-to-buy-for tweens/teens in your life!

It felt good to get some relaxing crafting time in … AND free up some space in my Craft Cave!

that's it for today - off to the gym I go.  Have a stampy day :)
