Finally, as promised

These are the cards from the classes I took over the weekend. All stamps are Unity Stamps, I believe the paper is Jillibean and the instructor was Kimber McGray.  I really enjoyed trying some new things and stamping with other stampers.  Jen and I are going to a Shoebox Swap on October 9th - all Stampin' Up with 19 participants and the following weekend we're going on a Scrapbook Weekend!

Good Morning

What a beautiful day -- I love Fall  -- the little nip in the air, the crunch of leaves on the ground, the colors...

We settled for bed around 11 -- Abby in her place in my bed and Howard under the bed -- all normal, then Howard decided to come out from under the bed -- so Abby growled like always -- she was kicked out and Howard invited up.  I thought that was settled until she popped up over the side of the bed -- so I 'slept' with both dogs in bed with me last night -- back to the crates tonight!

Great Saturday

Jen and I attended 2 classes today at our local scrapbook store held by Kimber McGray. We made 6 Christmas cards in the morning and 6 everyday cards in the afternoon.  I'll try to get some pictures and post them tomorrow.  What a fun day!

Happy Birthday Howard

Today is Howard's 11th birthday! He is still a very good squirrel chaser, dolly player, and all round good boy!

Here's another card from last weekend...cased from SCS -- I have all the details somewhere -- but where?

I know I used chocolate chip ribbon, old olive and pretty in pink...and the Sweet Pea flowers.

Out of town...

I'm in Columbus today and tomorrow so no new cards from me.  I'll be in Michigan the rest of the week and will be back home Friday evening -- hopefully I can get some stamping done then.

Together we pause to remember the victims, to grieve with the families and friends of those who died, and to honor the heroes of that day and each day since who have sacrificed to save lives and serve their country.  I can still remember that day so vividly.

Pick A Petal


Isn't it great? It's finally Friday! I'm going to have a short weekend and a very long week coming up -- but I'm excited about it!  Everyday I check out SCS and blogs of very talented Stampers and when I see something I like I save a picture as I'm sure a lot of people do. I've finally decided it was time to look through those saved pictures make my own card. This one uses a set I love -- Pick A Petal and was originally created by StamperDog and Ann Clemmer.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

Stamps: Pick A Petal
Paper and Ink: Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Pink Piourette, Early Espresso,Whisper White

I had to pick Jen and Rob up at the airport last night and didn't get a chance to take any pictures or post!  It's Wednesday -- gosh the week is flying by and next week is going to be as busy since I'll be out of town on business all week.  I hope you like the card as much as I do -- its something I came up with all on my own -- for a change. I'm an excellent copier.....

got some stamping done this long weekend.  Jen and Rob were on a cruise to the Cayman Islands and I had big plans to get some stuff done -- but as the old saying goes...'best laid plans....'. I did sort out my filing cabinet -- amazing how much junk accumulates and kept up with the basic chores.  I haven't snapped any pictures of my cards yet -- I'll do that tomorrow and post then too. I don't want to go back to work :-(!
