I am also very excited about going to the SU Regional in Louisville, Ky in October. This time we can bring guest so...do YOU wanna go with me? Let me know soon so I can get you registered! This would be the perfect opportunity for you if you have been thinking about signing up as a demonstrator to see what it is like.

Good evening! I was able to get some photos of our new obsession...horses. The girls are absolutely loving their new horses. We are boarding them about 10 miles out of town until and they can't wait until we can bring them closer to home. This is Shelby on Beauty, she has riding lessons so she just climbs on and takes off and we don't see her until time to go home. Sadie is a little more reluctant to ride alone so Dad has to lead her on Beauty since her horse hasn't been broken to ride yet.
I really like how this card turned out, I used Spice Cake DSP again. I got the idea for the medallion using both sides of the DP on Debbie Duchess's blog. I die cut a scallop circle with some burlap for the center as well as a flower using Spice Cake fabric and put them together with a Pool Party brad. Thanks for stopping by!

Today's card is one I made for a Christmas SAS using a new set from the Holiday mini called Bright Hopes. The DSP is retired and the embossing folder isn't SU but it kinda went with the DSP. I added pearls to the tree but I think Dazzling Diamonds are in order for the next one.
Thanks for visiting me today, if you don't have a demonstrator already I would love to hear from you! My email address is in my banner at the top of the page.

Good afternoon! I have a new great-niece and as usual I am running low on baby cards so I had to whip one up before I sent a little package her way. I used some pieces I left over from another project laying on my desk and since I had to get it to the post office before they closed decided to use them. I used Very Vanilla and Whisper White together which is something I never do but I like the contrast it gave. So since I had two neutrals together I decided to try two pinks and put Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink together to finish out the card. Something different...but I kinda like it.
This is the inside of the card. Thanks for stopping by.
ps....don't forget the Buy 3 get 1 Free offer ends soon as well as the last day to order from the Summer Mini will be August 31.

Good evening! I can't believe how much I have accomplished the past two days, I am not sure if it is because the girls are back in school or if I am motivated to get my To Do list wiped out. Today I have a Christmas card using the embedded embossing technique. For this one I used the Pennant Punch and punched out DSP and arranged the pennants to form a star and then embossed with the Square Lattice folder. The deer is from the Christmas Post stamp set. The DSP is a Holiday Mini sneak peak called Holly Berry Bouquet.
We had a very loud thunder storm earlier today and lost our electricity for a couple hours and Dalton got a little frightened. So after the storm I took him outside to play in puddles, he loved it. I wish this photo had sound to it because he was laughing and having the best time running all over the parking lot. I am totally in love with this little man!

We have had a fun day today. As soon as church was over we headed to Pizza Hut for lunch and then to the farm to ride horses. I remembered my camera this time but guess what I forgot...my memory card :( so I still have no photos to share. I will try really hard to get my act together and share photos next week. The horses are so sweet, they have been Amish trained and are very gentle. Shelby has had riding lessons before so she climbed on Black Beauty and took off but Sadie was a little reluctant at first. Dalton and I went for a horse drawn buggy ride which suits me just fine but he would rather be on the horse. Thanks for stopping by!~
ps...I will not be in my office tomorrow as planned, I need to make a quick trip to Evansville to see my son but will be back on Tuesday.

If you had planned to attend the Big Shot Class today but couldn't make it, you can still get in on the "lay-a-way" plan. You will have to pay $25.00/month for the next 4 months or you can come by within the next week and the projects from today will be available. Just let me know by Monday. Thanks for stopping by!

This dress box is very easy to put together, requires no adhesive. I tied mine together with Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon but you could also use a piece of Velcro. I think it would be perfect for a wedding or for a little girls birthday party favor. I used pretty in Pink card stock and embossed it using the Finial Press embossing folder.
Don't forget about the special for this month, order 3 packs of DSP and get 1 for free. Also a reminder that the Summer Mini ends August 31 so if there is something you want from it you better grab it soon. thanks for stopping by!

Good evening! It seems like my days are shorter every day, I haven't been getting much accomplished as far as stamping goes because there is so much else going on. I have been trying to get the girls ready to go back to school next week and we have had eye doctor appointments, dentist appointments, othodontist visits, and clothes shopping plus they each got a new horse and so we have been spending time getting to know Black Beauty and Emma. I took them both for yearly check ups yesterday and they were both healthy as could be and then around 10:00 I went in to kiss Sadie good night and she was burning up with fever, 104.4. The fever has been down most of the day but she doesn't feel well at all so I will probably be heading back to the doctor by the end of the week to see what is going on. I did manage to get a card stamped today, I used one of my favorites from the new catalog, Under the Big Top. The Big Top Birthday DSP is gorgeous, the colors are so bright and cheery.
I had to share this photo as well, we went camping last week and this is a photo of the girls on the goft cart. Shelby will get her driver's license in three years and I am already starting to dread that day. She is so hyper and this picture is just how I imagine the two of them in a car, Shelby zooming around with Sadie holding on for dear life! They are such goof balls! Thanks for stopping by.
