Heart To Heart

Here's the deal of the week: Heart to Heart Punch for only $10.99!

I made these cute bookmarks for the crop in Mobile to give out. I used the Heart to Heart punch to make the little hearts on it. The punch does 3 hearts that also lines up with a stamp in the Love You Much stamp set on page 44 of our catalog. I used this punch for many different Valentine's Day cards last year but you can use it for Anniversary cards, scrapbook pages, baby cards and more.
I need to post more pictures of cards but I've been busy cleaning and going to birthday parties. Today is stay home and do laundry day. LOL.
Happy Stampin'!

Working on Swaps for Convention

Just to let you all know that I'm working on swaps for Convention. Hopefully I'll get them done in time. I only have a week and a half. Plus I need to get busy with other things like painting. The laundry is piling up and not putting itself away.

On top of all this I am getting quotes for a pool to be put in. I really have wanted a pool for so long. I want to make my backyard an oasis. Someplace to go to relax and unwind.

Maybe I'll make a fun "oasis" type card to cheer me up. LOL.

I'll post pictures soon.

Don't forget the deal of the week is the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware. It's on sale for only $18.99! I'll make something with it and show you how cute it is. :)

Happy Stampin!

Fun Crop in Mobile Yesterday

I have to say a BIG Thank You to Melissa for hosting the crop in Mobile yesterday. She organized a wonderful day for scrapbookers. I enjoyed getting to know so many talented ladies. Plus there were so many great door prizes, food, vendors, demonstrations and more. I am glad that Melissa had me come out and show off some of Stampin' Up!s products.

Melissa's walk for the cure will be in October. If you haven't donated yet you can go to There's a link on the right showing how to donate.

At the crop I got to know a few ladies and some who had overcome breast cancer. It's amazing how much early detection helps in the fight. If you find a lump or are concered about something always contact your doctor and insist on further tests if anything looks inconclusive.

If I can post some pics I will. Until next time...

Open House was so much fun!

Yesterday was so much fun. I had 6 ladies come make a card with me and I also got to show off the decor elements. People don't know that this is not a rub on. It's actual vinyl and goes on many surfaces. I love them! I love them so much that I cry when something bad happens to them. While making a project yesterday morning I asked for help from my hubby. He was happy to help but with each step there was a challenge to overcome. Let's just say we lost the war. The piece of glass with the decor element ended up cracking and I ended up crying. But not all is lost. I still have the frame and I can still buy a new decor element and get a new piece of glass. So what if it takes a week or more to get everything I need together again. I will win!

Okay for cards and other fun stuff. I made this cute card:
Well actually Margo made it I helped her design it and we used the wrinkle free distressing techinque. I thought it came out good. I need to make some things and do laundry so I mus…

Father's Day Cards and photos from Game Day

This is a little late but thought you might want to see the cards I made for Steve and his dad.

I got them tickets to see the BayBears play in Mobile. So I thought the baseball theme to the cards would be a great idea. The girls wanted to put glitter. LOL.

Here are the girls at the game with their dad and grandpa.

They had a lot of fun! It was their first baseball game and we stayed til the end and watched the fireworks. It was a late night but they did really good.

As for stamping...I've been busy making invitations for parties. If you need some for a birthday or retirement party or any occassion let me know. I'm able to make them for $2 a card.

Here's one I made for my friend's daughter's birthday.

I also made this card for a dear friend of mine. She had me paint some paintings for her and I wanted to make something special to thank her for it. I haven't sent it to her yet but I'm sure she won't mind seeing it here first.

Isn't it great!? I love h…
