100 cards, a sore back & my butt got bigger.


Hiya!

I'm back from my weekend stamping retreat and thought I'd check in to let you know I met my 100 card goal! Here's what a hundred cards look like! Well, okay, here's what 80 cards loooks like. I sold 20 of them to some of the girls in our group before I left. BUT I DID MAKE 100 CARDS! Oh, the pressure! I WORKED LIKE A MADWOMAN~ day & night! I stamped, I colored, I glued, I ribboned. I cut, I papered, I scissored, I eyelet punched. The only thing I didn't do was take photos for you. I have to say, this is the most cards I've ever done at a weekend stamping retreat EVER. I can usually crank out 75-80 cards, but this weekend I decided to set a goal of 100 to see if I could actually do it. The girls around me were cheering me on...it was like watching the mile markers on a road trip....43 cards girls! 61 cards, girls! 80! I'm at 80 cards! I finished the last few this morning, although I have to say, the quality got a little worse as the clock kept ticking!
Anyway, I'm off to lay on the couch to rest my sore back & neck & relax for a bit. Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Okay - I met Lisa at the retreat she was at this weekend. Not only did she crank out 100 beautiful cards (coloring, layering, embellies, the works!)she was so sweet to take time to chat with a fellow stamper and fill me in on Copics and coloring! She asked where I got a lot of my stamps and we found a mutual love of EP! Lisa even offered me her stamps so I could stamp off some images from companies I hadn't used before! What an enabler! :-) I was like a kid in a candy store! Thank you Lisa!! Hugs, Shelly

Congratulations on a mind-blowingly fantastic result. One hundred cards in a weekend is a phenominal achievement.... if I started now I would probably finish my hundredth sometime short of 2020. Put the kettle on and relax girl - you deserve it!
