I’m getting excited as I pack for a trip to Jacksoville, Florida for a downline meeting. It doesn’t look like I’ve left much room for clothes with all the samples I am bringing. Besides, what is more important? Obviously the stamping materials. It should be an interesting morning as I will be driving from the Springs up to Denver to catch an early morning flight. Then of course there is the flight. We all know how much I
love hate to fly!
I’ve been busy working on a few projects around here and I must say I am pretty proud of one of them.
I found the Plastic Candy Maker Ribbon at Hobby Lobby and if you were there you would of known it. I squealed with delight for many reasons. First, each month I always decorate my stamp room along the upcoming Holiday Theme. I love to be festive. When I saw this in the candy Isle, I thought how fun it would be to make a few of these Ribbon Candy Pops and use my Retiring Stamp Set The Free & the Brave and tie a tag off the pops. Then my mind was going 90 miles an hour when I got to thinking of my upcoming Cards for the Cure that me and the demonstrators in the area do every year. Won’t this be fun to use Pink Chocolate and have Pink Ribbons! I am super excited about that!!!
I’ve been working on a few birthday cards as well. Here is one using the Surf’s Up! stamp set.
I used two of the new In Colors Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede. I love these colors and they were perfect for a little boy birthday card.
Last thing to share is my new FAVORITE stamp set TODAY! I have many favorites from the new catalog, but Razzle Dazzle is one that I seem to be pulling out a lot.
I think me and the Spritzer Tool are new best friends. I love using that tool and I love the new In Color Markers. I could kiss Stampin’ Up! for coming out with the markers in the In Colors. I warned my kids to be good or I will spritz them with a Melon Mambo marker. 🙂 Have you noticed that Shabby Chic is coming back strong? I love this vintage look. I could tear, rip and crumple paper all day. So fun!
I better get back to packing. Lots to do before that early morning flight. Have a fabulous weekend.
