Just made this cute card

Here's a cute card using retiring colors, stamps and accessories.
I used Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red cardstock and ink. The stamp set is Heartfelt Thanks and it's retiring. I've had this stamp set since I joined Stampin' Up! I'll miss it. I also used the Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon and the Fleurettes. Our Fleurettes are 50% off while supplies last. I attached them using a silver brad. What do you think? Hope you enjoy my creations. Happy Stampin'!

Bermuda Bay Color Focus

Hello again! I'm so excited because I got my Stampin' Up! order yesterday and I have a new stamp set to play with and new In Colors to play with. I decided to start with Bermuda Bay. It's a beautiful teal color and I think it's perfect for Summer!

I thought I would make this elegant wedding card using our textured Manhattan Flower plate. It's simple but I think it's lovely. The white taffeta ribbon adds the perfect touch. The ink and cardstock are the new Bermuda Bay color. Here's another card using a level 2 hostess set from our current catalog. I have wanted to play with this set for a while but didn't earn it until just recently. What do you think?

I love that you can use our punches for this set and that you can pop the image up with dimensionals. I think the Just Jawing set complements it well. I use the new In Color marker to fill in the eyes and then sprinkled Dazzaling Diamonds on them.
I'm really liking the white taffeta ribbon too. I seem to…

Another summer day

Yes I feel the days passing too quickly. Here it is the middle of June (almost) and I've not yet relaxed on a vacation of any sort. I did get to enjoy spending time yesterday with my friend and downline Linda. She has a fantastic pool in her yard and we enjoyed playing, splashing and relaxing in it. I wish I had a pool. So jealous.

But anyway...My girls and the neighbors kids were here at the house today and they played really well together but ended up making a mess of the house. I did get them all to clean up the toys and put away things they were done playing with. But during all this my lovely daughter got gum on her ballet outfit. That made me upset enough to take away the gum from everyone. I did use peanut butter to get the gum out of the outfit so I shouldn't be too mad.

I also figured out that my sweet girl, Jessica, can be paid in M & Ms to do things. So I had her unload the dish washer and she helped get the laundry out of the dryer and moved things from the washe…

Marker Club Cards

Well I meant to post these cards sooner. Here's what we did last month for Marker Club.

Aren't they great!? I really liked showing how to color the tree with the markers and then spritzing the rubber with some water. It makes the tree look more like a water color then a stamped image. You can tell your friends that you are a true artist. LOL. June is the last month for our Marker Club. If you or anyone you know is interested in receiving all the markers, paper and hostess benefits for the new catalog please contact me. I'll start a new Marker Club when we get 4 people to join. Sneak Peak!! The new In Colors for our Fall/Winter Catalog will have markers. Yes we'll have even more options for coloring, stamping and creating with the new In Colors. I really like the new colors and I'll be getting them in about a week. So if anyone wants to come "play" let me know. LOL.Summertime is turning out to be a busy time for my girls and I. We went to the movies at the …

Retired list and the Angry Canadian

It's Here!

Retired List
Here's the link for the retired list for stamp sets. A lot of my favorites are on there. There's also an accessory list I'm trying to post but having a hard time doing so. There's no link on the website for it either. SO I will email anyone that wants the list. Just let me know.

Club meeting was great! We celebrated Michelle's birthday. I made a cute banner for her and I also made dinner. I know. Amazing. LOL.
We learned how to make the wonderful Watercolor Roses using Fifth Avenue Floral. See the cards below. I love how they turned out.

I actually sent a card to my niece for her birthday. She probably didn't get it yet but I hope she loves it. She's like a sister to me and I really miss her. She's in California and we don't get to see each other unless I go there. I made it for this last Christmas which was so nice.
Another thing we learned at club was not to say anything negative about Canada around Carla. LOL. A new stampe…
