Big Order

I just placed a big order for the new Stampin Up items that will be featured in the new catalog which comes of July 1.  I can't wait.  The new In Colors are yummy and the new stamp sets will be a challenge but I am so looking forward to getting everything.  I just hate waiting.  I will also be getting my copy of the New Catalog and I can't wait to look through everything slowly and see what is staying and what is new.  I am a ribbon lover and a lot of the ribbon I have retired so I am looking forward to seeing what will be replacing it.  What I love about the SU ribbon is that every thing matches.  I never have to worry about finding what I need.  Now I am waiting patiently. Can't wait to show you the new stuff I will come up with.  If you would like to book a workshop please email at

June WOOHOO Stampers Swap

The theme for the June WooHoo Stampers Swap in NY is Summer/Graduation.  Had no idea what I was going to do till I saw the 1 1/4" Striped Ribbon I had forgotten about.  It was the yellow and white and thought that would make a cute beach bag.  Then I had to come up with a tie and of course the Summer Mini has the white Bakers Twine and I had my beach bag.  I then came up with the rest of the card and I really like it.  I hope you will too.

Danny's Birthday Card

My brother will be 61 on June 8th and this is the card I came up with for him.  I liked it because it was a different kind of fold.  Plus I love the Open Sea stamp set.  Really wish it was going to be in the new catty.

Happy Birthday Danny.  We love you and Miss You.  Come visit us soon.

Busy Day

Most of the time I sit down and work on cards for either my classes or a swap but today I wanted to play with some of the colors that I hadn't really used much this year.  The two I picked was Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait.  I wanted something cute and fast and something I might want to do at a workshop or class in the future.  I came up with these two.   I think they came out pretty good and I used the Smooch Spray on both of them.
