End of June!

Is it already the last day of June? That means convention is coming up in, lets see... 12 days!!! I am so excited to be going this year! But the end of June also means the last day to order from the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue. Just remember if there are any stamps on the retiring list today is the very last day to get your hands on them!

Tomorrow, July 1, we can start placing orders in the afternoon from the NEW 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalogue. Interested in one of your own? Please email me so we can discuss the details! Check back tomorrow for the link to the new catalogue and a look at the new colours!

Fox and Friends stamp set has very cute animal stamps! This cute little card's base was made using the Clear Scallop Square Die, but the piece of Crumb Cake is folded and place on the die in such a way that only 3 sides were cut. Behind the Giraffe image the Very Vanilla Seam Binding is pleated around the circle using Sticky Strip.

10th Wedding Anniversary

My husband and I celebrated 10 years of marriage on June 16th! Has it really been 10 years? Has it only been 10 years? I am very blessed to have this man in my life. I love him with all my heart.
My sweetheart created the following card for me. He had the chance to cut into some of the new 2011-2012 In Colors. The colour combo was my idea, I had 2 laid out on my stamp table the night he went to design my card and he decide to choose one of them. I think he did a wonderful job! Now I need to get down there to make my own card with these colours!


Next is the card I designed for him. He loves hunting, especially for deer, so I just knew I had to use the Nature Silhouettes stamp set. The always greeting is my handwriting.

We took a little camping trip to Charleston Lake Provincial Park the weekend after our anniversary. It was perfect weather! Here we are together on the boardwalk trail.


Since I spent so much time on this next project I thought I would share with you this picture of our wedding cake replica. Yummy Gum Drop cake with vanilla frosting and violet purple flowers.

My Birthday!


This has got to be the best card ever! That piggy is just so darn cute. My husband spent two evenings working on this card for my birthday. I am so impressed that he created a punch art pig and used my Big Shot for the very first time! Inside this card was a gift card for 2 movie passes and 2 handmade ticket vouchers. You arrr invited to a movie and you arrr invited to bring a friend, so cute. Not sure what movie to see yet but I'll be taking him along with me. (Want to see how far he's gone since last year? Check out my birthday card here.)
