Brew Up A Little Fun! - FMS151

Hi everyone!

Happy Labor Day!   I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  It has been very relaxing for me!  A little swimming, a little retail therapy, good food with family, all of my summer favorites!  Plus, as an added bonus, I got my first batch of swaps in the mail!

As those who attended my last workshop heard first hand, I signed up for FOUR different swaps that are all due in the next couple weeks.  Plus, I will be attending a Stampin' Up! event on September 13 with other demos in the area, and there will be swapping there as well!  All together, I need approximately 65 swaps by September 15.  A daunting task, to be sure, but at least the first 2 designs and 22 swaps are on their way.  In a couple weeks, I should have a lot of other stampers' ideas to share with you!

But first, today I have a card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, FMS151!  Click the link to go to their page and check out the other entries.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

Hi stampers!

Are you ready for the long weekend?  I know I am!  The weather people say our weather will be "iffy" (that's a technical term), so I should have time for some card making and paper crafting!

Before we get to today's card, I want to tell you about a very exciting promotion from Stampin' Up! - A free stamp set!
