Good Morning Monday!

The are finally getting a break from that nasty heat wave we were having and it's so nice out side. I got my out side faucet fixed yeaterday and the plants got a well deserved and needed cold shower, instead of just a drink. They all look so pretty this morning and some are finally blooming.
This inchie swap was on a yahoo group I belong to
and each person was assigned a letter to do and we sent 13 letters in and we got the entire verse back. This is my completed project. It says, "Live , Laugh, Love. The picture is a little hard to see because of the glare of the flash. It was all one in Silver, Black and gray. The old frame was green and I spay painted it a flat back. I just joined another one but haven't been assigned my letter yet. I'm looking forward to it. More Christmas gifts. YEA!!
My yahoo group is doing quite well. We are getting to know each other and we now have enough members and we are starting to do some serious swapping. Our first swap, which I hosted, was thinking of you cards. They were awesome. They have been swapped out and went postal last week. I have a butterfly twinchie swap(2x2) ending on the 30th and I'm real excited by the results. they will go back in the mail this week. We have all kinds of swaps going on right now, christmas cards, event toppers, glitter cards, 3x3 cards, 12x12 layouts. If you are wanting to joins We'd love to have you. Please come on by and check us out.
Well see you soon, Happy Scrappin

Anniversary Card

Good Morning. I just wanted to touch base with all my scrappin friends and family and show you the card I made. You know how you've got that big party to attend and at the last minute you tell yourself don't forget the card. Well I forgot the card, almost. Thank goods for a well supplied craft room. I made this card yesterday for the party last night. By the way, Congratulations Teresa and Mark for 25 yrs together. We had a great time it was good to see family on a happy occassion.

I used my favorite paper from Stampin Up! It's from the Parisian Breeze Speciality DSP. (To be retired July 1st) This was the last of it, I'm gonna miss it. The stamp set is Echos of Kindness. This is a Level 2 hostess gift and it is also retiring July 1st. I just got my new catalog on Friday afternoon and already I have a 2 page list of "I gotta have or I'll just die".

Well, better go now, off to look for that job so I can fill that list. Happy Scrappin.

New Stampin Up Colors

I love this card. And it was not difficult at all. It's kind of hard to tell but the paper is the new Razzleberry Lemonade, Card stock is the new Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry. The ink is Dusty Durango. These are just a couple of the new items Stampin Up is coming out with on July 1st. If you have never tried Stampin Up products now is the time. They are coming out with 6 new colors and lots of new paper packs and the new stamps are awesome. I'm really looking forward to incorporating these new colors into ideas for my card club. If you live in the Metro St. Louis area and would like to join us on the 3rd Saturday of each month just give me a buzz and I'll get you in.

Things are going along at a snails pace around here, It's kinda hard to do much with all the rain and thunderstorms we have been having. I think this is the wettest June I have ever seen in Missouri.

My friend Amber is getting Married on 7/8/09 and I have been helping her. She has a very limited budget so we are getting very creative. We are stamping invitations and announcements on Sunday. I want this to be such a happy time for her and Carl. They have waited a long time for this. She is having it in a park so I have ordered good weather. I think all of the necessaries have been thought of now we are putting the plan into action. We need small inexpensive ideas for table decorations so if you have any please send them to me.

Well gotta run. Happy Scrappin.

Mini Book Cover

I just love this Owl. He is made simply from Stampin Up using the big shot dies 'Top Note' and Scalloped circle, SU 5 petal punch and 2 different circle punches. We do such great projects. Tonight we are getting together and creating again. I can't wait to see what Mandy has come up with.
I'm still working on developing my own Stampiu Up business and I think things are progressing nicely. I'm trying to put in an order twice a month, I have managed to meet my consistancy counts goal for the last 2 months, one more to go and I get a free stamp set, anyone I want. I'm excited about that, you can never have enough stamp sets. The new catalog comes out in July. I have seen a preview of a few samples and OMG, the new 'In Colors' are awesome. I never thought in a million years I would get excited over ink, but I am EXCITED. I guess that is what finding your true passion will do for you. I love all of the Stampin Up products and would love to introduce them to you. If you would like a catalog just email me at .
I have a couple of swaps I need to get done so see ya, Happy Scrappin.
