DONT MISS MYTIME MAIL POST HERE-just comment for a chance to win.

So today is going to be a great day. My Stampin Up catalog order is arriving! I got some “organization” stuff and new paper and ribbon! YEAH!

I also got my order from Impress yesterday! I ordered Friday afternoon, and my order arrived yesterday! WOW! I got the chinese lantern that one of my DD creations was based on, a mail box, image, sentiment that says “Look who’s turning” , a large flower, and a umbrella image similar to the lantern.

I have another order “picking” at All That Scraps. She got in stamps from The Cats Pajama’s that I had to have, plus the super cool Creative Hot Knife. That is on its way to ME! Check out her tutorial on its use HERE.

OK on to the the cards. I posted these on SCS yesterday.

in the sand Busy Bee

Ok I just think this little image from C.C. Designs Summer Set is the cutest evah! Its my favorite from her set. I just began coloring her, and kept seeing a busy little “bee” so I went with it!

Over all this is a simple design.

I stamped her, and colored with Copic Markers. I then used her (C.C. Designs) shadow stamp for the “sand” mound. I used my coluzzle to cut a circle so I could sponge the circle “sky’ behind her. Really cute huh? Then popped her out with my scalloped Giga circle .

The bucketis cut and on dimensionals. The Sprite Primas are like the flower on her hat!

My ribbon is by Martha Stewart.


swimsuits Summer Surf  Sand Fun

I love the little swim suits. I just stamped, colored and cut from patterned paper. Used my scalloped rectangel.

Paper is by SEI called Penelope’s Potpourri. As is the ribbon.

Another quick card.

Who wants to get these 2 cards in the mail? Anyone?

Reply to this post and they could be yours.

Just tell my your favorite part of the summer.

My favorite part is our home town has an Annual Hot Air Balloon Rally, every year the first week in August. People come from ALL over. This is the weekend we also celebrate Amber’s bday! I remember being due the day of rally, and praying Id be able to attend! I was way over due! So I definitely made it!

I just look forward to it every year. I love living in a small town. Growing up in the city we didnt have the hometown things we have here. Like-Old Home Day, Ballon Rally, Farmers market town wide yard sale-crazy stuff. Its nice to raise a family here.

Thanks to all of you who are sharing your summer time memories. I love reading about each of you. I read every comment that comes in.
