Shame On Me!

I can not believe I failed to tell you about the newest coolest tool Stampin' Up! has to offer! It is a die cut machine, called Big Shot. Woo Hoo!

The Big Shot will take your projects to a new level. This machine has been approved to cut through 50 different types of materials. (Contact me and I will provide you with the list!) In additional to this SU will carry a exclusive line of dies for the Big Shot. If you are wondering if other dies work in this machine, the answers is YES, embossing plates & folders too! Woo Hoo!!!!!!!

Be sure to click on the Big Shot link, in the margin of my blog, to take a peek at this must have tool!

Mark your calendars, I will be able to start taking orders for the Big Shot on September 1, 2008!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!!

We have returned from the Wisconsin Dells. While there we stayed at Wilderness Territory. Three indoor water parks and three outdoor water parks. Fun! Fun! Fun! I got the chance to visit the Gina K Designs Retail Store. Fun! Fun! Fun! For me!!!! She is truly a talented lady. Her store is beautiful.

Today the kids and I met some friends at Binder Park Zoo. We had a great time. The weather was perfect.

The kids have received letters from their second grade teacher. (They will be in the same class again this year.) That is about all I have to say about that. Just not ready for school to start. This summer is going way too fast, I need to put the breaks on! I am not ready for my (7 year old) babies to go back to school.

I have a list compiled of retired SU stamp sets I am ready to part with. If you would like a copy please contact me and I will get you a copy ASAP.

Thanks for looking!

Good Morning! Boy this week is just flying by. As far as that goes this month is disappearing quickly.
I hope you are have a chance to enjoy the County Fair this week. I hear card making and scrap booking is becoming a rather large exhibit in the arts and crafts categories this year. I think that is way cool!
By the way Happy Birthday Ruth...hope you are checking in!

Todays card is made from the Fresh Cut stamp set. I am having a hard time putting this set down. I just love it.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Good Morning!

Well our summer has started winding down. Grace has had her second Rocket Football cheer leading practice. Which equates to summer is coming to a halt. UGGGG!!!

Sam is waiting for soccer to start. He is not old enough to play Rocket Football this year. He sure wants to play though. It is so hard for me to grasp they are going to be in the second grade this year. It just feels like yesterday we were bring them home from the hospital.

This is a card I made for card swap I am in. The set is called Just Football. The background is done freehand using a Chocolate Chip marker. I but some Crystal Effects on the football to make it shine.

Have a great day and thanks for looking!!! Don't forget to enter the drawing for you favorite new "in color"!!!!

Cool Sunday...

The air has a coolness to it today. The wind is directly out of the North. No beach for us. Just too cold. Grace and Sam had a great time at Art Camp last week. They made a stunning display of craft items for Dave and I to cherrish.

While they were off to camp last week I started working on our Disney Scrap Book. I will post the pages as I get them completed. I had a lot of fun working on this project. Ahhh...the memories!

Here are some new cards for you to check out. These are made from Stampin' Up! Fresh Cut Note Cards. I love these note cards and am thrilled to tell you they are available in the new catalog.

Don't forget to vote for you fav new "in color" card stock! The drawing will be held on August 11th.

As always feel free to post a comment and THANKS for checking in!!!
