Yesterday was one of those day where I was busy from the moment I woke up to the moment I went to bed!  Tod worked from home yesterday too because we had the AT&T guy coming to install the digital upgrade package for our TV, Phone and Internet.  I also ran errands for buying plants and flowers, etc.  I did MULTIPLE loads of laundry, which ended up in piles on my bed too.  After I got the kids from school we had to get supper ready and Gabby ready for her soccer game at 6:00.  We didn’t eat before we left, but I wanted it ready so when we got home we could eat.  After the AT&T guy  left, my wonderful husband went to pick up my new freezer.  He wasn’t able to go to Gabby’s game because he was doing that.  I’m so glad that I was able to get video of one of her goals.  At least he could see the replay!!  I’m so proud of her, and I’m posting the video for you to see too!!!

I should have put these in the opposite order since all the cards so far have used the Parisian Breeze paper.  I broke the mold when I made the first card posted.  For that card I used the SU! DP called Bella Birds!

The stamps for both of these cards are from Our Daily Bread Designs.com.  The top set is called Lift Up Our Hands and the bottom one is called Sing to the Lord.  The butterfly is from the stamp set called Simple Friend.  Remember that you can see all of the Stampin’ Up! catalog at http://www.stampinup.com.  You can also order online now too.  They will ask you to choose a demonstrator and if you do you receive a lower rate of shipping.  If you choose me that doesn’t mean that I will bug you contantly either!


Until Next Time…….Happy Creating!!!!

When I was packing to go to Iowa, I decided to take along some stamping stuff.  I haven’t taken any home for quite a while because I never end up with time to stamp!  I was determined to squeeze a little stamping in this time!  Because I was stamping on the go….I knew I wasn’t going to have a lot of time to dream up designs so I took a few of my favorites along so that I could just enjoy the process of putting it all together!  Here are the first two I have to share!  This first card was totally inspired by Beate Johns author of her blog Fresh and Fun!  She was one of the first stampers with a blog that I subscribed to!  She’s still one of my favorites!!!!



The inspiration from the card above came from Dawn Easton, author of  her blog Treasure Oiler Designs!  I think this is one of my favorite DP’s that Stampin Up! has ever had.  It is called Parisian Breeze.  I LOVE these colors together!!!  I have a few more cards to post to check back later!  Thanks for stopping by and thanks Beate and Dawn for sharing your creativity with me!!

I had a request for the product supplies guide that used to be in the back of the catalog.  SU! had removed it to create more room for product.  Many of you would love to know which supplies were used for the examples in the catalog.  Here is the PDF file for you to download at your convenience so you can have this to refer to!
