First Day of Summer!

Jun 22, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

Happy First Day of Summer! I love summertime. I love not having to bundle the kids up in all the jackets, hats, gloves and boots. Cleaning the snow off the car-making Jason shovel  (seeing if you are paying attention! LOL! unfortunately that part is true)

Anyway-its just a nice time of year. Bright cheery colors. Love it.

To start the first day-

Christine from All That Scraps has her own line of stamps called C.C. Designs. You may ahve seen my Bitzy Bugz a while ago. She just released this set called Summer Set. The cool thing about this one is you can either buy the pieces separately (unmounted or wood mount) OR for significant savings buy the SET!! How cool.

Beachy Keen Baby

This is the first card I did using the new set. I used the shadow stamp from her store to create the sand “mound”. Color spritzed it with caramel. Stamped the sand mound on caramel and cut out. Isnt she cute? Her pail is 3D as well. I used the Beach collection of paper on my designs by Memory Box.

Mainly paper pieced. Excuse the brightness! Hope you had a nice First Day of Summer. It was cold and rainy here!

Who says we dont have to worry about Global Warming eh?

Stay tuned tomorrow for my Saturday Sketch Challenge!

I’ve been tagged

Jun 22, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: My family stuff

Debby tagged me. I now have to tell you 7 things about myself.

Ok try not to yawn! Im not a secretive person and pretty much spill it ALL, so you probably know most of it anyway.

1) My Dream is work for a magazine someday.

2) I HATE to cry! I dont know why I just do.

3) I talk WAY too much. Its hard for me to shut up. I wish I didnt have that quality.

4) I HATE the Dentist! Id rather go see the OBGYN than go to the dentist. I havent been in over 8 years! I know I need to make appointment, and YES I do have dental insurance.

5) I will ONLY drink Dunkin Dounts Coffee. And it has to have tons of cream and sugar.

6) I cannot stand MILK! I love ice cream and stuff like that but NO MILK! ICK!

7) I have never tried tried ONE single drug in my entire life-ever. I dont care what other people have done, I just never saw the need or attraction.

8) Like most I am totally addicted to SCS! Its sick! Its like the first thing I do. I grab my coffee, then sit down and “catch up” on all the goods. New challenges, hot stuff going on-whatever. I get up about a 1/2 hour before the kids to do this. I also sometimes stay up and await ordering those stamp sets that have a midnight release and stuff like that.

BONUS-I LOVE happy mail. When I know Im getting NO DELIVERIES I freak out and order something, anything. Really sick shopping obsession. Im also addicted to Target. I go every Saturday!

Now I have to tag 7 people. Well I guess if you blog and read this then link your blog here if you want to be tagged. I believe I did this tag before?

Id love to hear 10 quirky things about YOU! So feel free to share! I dont want to be the only one spilling.

More Paper Trey-Inspired by Vera Bradley

vera Here is my New! Vera Bradley bag. Its the Sateen Collection in the Julie. I Love it!!! It doesnt get any better than this! This bag has gorgeous butterflies all over it! And its the perfect size too. I am hopelessly addicted to these purses for some strange reason.

My Stampin Up customer’s from one of my stamping club’s know how much I LOVE Vera Bradley, and as a thank you/goodbye gift they pitched in for a gift certificate for me to our local store that sell’s my most favorite bags! Am I lucky or what? I will miss them all so much! They also made me a gorgeous card, and Im embarrassed to say I cannot find it!

Amber told me it was “her pretty card-not mommy’s” so she hid it “somewhere” before I could even get a photo. I am on a wild hunt for it now!

Anyway my awesome new bag inspired me to make this card with my new Text Boxed set by Paper Trey.

 Vera Beautiful-I call it!       LMBO!!!!!

And here is the other card I did

Spectrum Friendship


I just love pink and black. Im on a black kick lately. HMMMMMM.

Anyway, this used my cotton candy spectrum pad. I felt like the cuttlebug snowflakes folder (go figure) matched the whimsical sunflower perfectly! What did I ever do before my cuttlebug??? Oh my word! I just love it!

I love layering, and thought this was pretty cool. My color spritzer gave it that final touch.

Thanks for looking!!!
