Where Does the Time Go?

Days, weeks, months go by so quickly...was it always this way? It's now February, just 10 days from my next club night and I'm finally posting January's Club cards! Uurgh!

Here's a look at what we made...the first card was made in a snap with the help of Stampin' Up!'s new XL Two Step Bird Punch {LOVE IT!}.
The card on the right is a Tri-Fold card and took considerably more time but was well worth it! The highlighted tools were the Stampin' Around Wheel and Hobby Blade. The idea came from a UStamp with with Dawn and Friends with Love, an online "Class" filled with ideas, tutorials, chats and should check it out!
