On Board Workshop..Here is what you missed...

9X9 Clipboard

5X5 Art Journal

Simon Upper Make-n-Take


I've been busy with:

a. The Kids

Evan- When Chalk Goes Bad!!

Look Out it's Jabin the Spider-Man!!

b. Our House {Some Day we will be "Finished"}!

c. Taking Care of the Kids & the House

d. My Stamp Room

In the process of "organizing" My Stamp Room last Friday. I found a little bit of "this-n-that". You know the 1/2 done cards your were going to finish, a few extra cut supplies from a make-n-take, a few odd things from a Simply Scrappin' Kit, ect. I took all the "this-n-that" and ended up making 52 Birthday Cards and 17 Anniversary Cards for Soneshine Ministry at my Church. Cards are sent to people on their Birthdays and Anniversaries. I love to help with this ministry, but I was falling a little behind. Now I just got them sent off with my step-mom, who will deliver them to Gloria, who will put them all to good use.
That feels GREAT!! Now if I would just make a few each time I stamp, I wouldn't get behind! ;o)

I'll try to get some of My Stamp Room pictures on soon.

Happy Together

I was talking on the phone with a friend and flippin' through the Spring~Summer Collection when I saw the "All in the Family" set on page 73. Next thing I knew I had a few "flashes" of ideas pop in my head and HAD to go try them. This is what I came up with.....

Summer Sun Card Base: 4 1/4" x 11"

Fold in half and cut 1 1/2" off of the front right hand side.

Green Galore: 3" x 4 1/2"

Basic Black: 2 3/4" x 4"

Whisper White: 2 7/16" x 3 3/4"

Classic Stampin' Pads:

Green Galore, Summer Sun, Basic Black & Creamy Caramel (for the hair)

Ribbon: Black Gingham

Crystal Effects

Stamp Sets:

All in the Family

Family Phrases

Tart & Tangy

I haven't seen anything like this "out there" yet.

I did send a card to SU!, but I haven't seen it or heard from them.

Oh, well! I'd like to know what you think though....

Thanks For The Love!!

Last week was a little crazy.

I went for a follow-up Dr Appt at 3 pm on Monday and found out I needed surgery on Wednesday!! With that being said I had lots to get ready for. Lucky for me I have been blessed with so many loving & caring friends through Stampin' a great Husband, cute Boys and a fabulous Family!!

Flowers from Bonnie, Pat & Family.

A card & food from Ann & Family.

A card & plant from my Mom & Ted.

A Mom from pre-school brought home the boys. My Step-Mom came to be with me, made the beds, did some laundry and cleaned up a little. My sister brought me ice. ;o) And her & my Mom stayed with me Thurdsday to help with the boys.

I am doing much better!!

I am ready to get the house and stamp room back in order!
