Wine and bread--my fave!

Hello!  Are you surviving the heat?  Our AC broke yesterday and it's an oven upstairs!  Luckily, we have the downstairs one working and the guy is here now putting in a new one.  There goes any trips we had wanted to take for a while!  Boy, are AC's expensive! 

Anyway, this is one of the cards we made last Friday at the make & take.  It was such a fun group and fun time!  I brought out the pastels and blender pens for this one--and served wine and loaves of bread and butter!  This set is from the new catalog and allows watercoloring in any form.

Off to Stampin' Up convention in Salt Lake City tomorrow!  Can't wait! I'll be back with lots of new ideas to share!

Gift card "Purse"

I love this simple, yet create way to give a gift card to a female in your life!  I used the Top Note die, new DSP and new Daffodil Delight cs.  Just cut the trim at the same time you cut the front and back of the purse.  It would also fit a small gift of jewelry or lipstick...
Leaving for convention on Wednesday--can't wait!!

Hydrangea in blue

This is one of the cards we are making tonight at the make & take...AND you can get it for FREE if you host a workshop!!  I watercolored it with my aquapainter in Bashful Blue and Marina Mist (also the cardstock used).  Accented with Rose cs.  This is a combo I got from the new Color Chart from SU--don't you love the colors together? You can't tell from the pic, but I also added some glitter on the flower in the centers....
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Back with the living!

Well, after a couple of very busy weeks, I am finally back to the real world!  My parents left this morning, and I am anxious to get stamping again!  They like to get up REALLY early, and I am beat!

Here is one of my swaps for convention using the new level 2 set--I think these guys are so cute!

Notice the textured backgrounds!

Elements of Style

This stamp set is from the summer mini catalog...Tina, my friend and downline, made these 2 cards--aren't they beautiful?  Two entirely different cards from the same set!  I haven't bought this set yet, but I'm going to now!

I've been MIA for about a week because I was teaching a Scrapbooking class at the Barstow Summer Enrichment Program...now I'm waiting for my parents to arrive!  Busy Busy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT 4th!!!!
