Lighthearted Thanks for FMS201

Hello!

Did you have a nice weekend?  It sure seems like they just fly by!  I worked for a few hours this morning, but at least I didn't have to get up at 2:00 AM this time!  The rest of the time was spent running errands, getting ready for our little trip, and stamping.  All good stuff!

And most importantly, I have to finalize my Stampin' Up! order for Tuesday morning! That's the day the Holiday mini finally goes live!!!

I am submitting today's card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  Click the sketch below to play along and to see what others have created.





It was funny, while I was search for the background panel I wanted to use with my leaves, I set my leaves aside and was thumbing through packages of DSP.  Then I looked at where I placed the leaves and it was on a large scrap of the current In Color DSP Stack (#138432).  I decided I liked the look, so here we are!  I hope you like it!

Butterfly

Hi everyone!

Woohoo!  It's the weekend!  I only have a couple more days of work before heading east for a a few days.  We are really looking forward to this trip.  It will be so nice to get away, and hopefully Erika behaves nicely and we can get in some beach time!

Today's card is courtesy of my very talented sister.  It uses the Butterfly Basics set that was (thankfully) carried over from the spring mini.

Halloween Owl

Greetings stampers!

The beautiful late summer weather continues around here.  Sunshine, mild temps, low humidity...in other words, perfect!  But, it has also made the pool water way too cold for this warm water swimmer!

Delaware stampers, we will meet at Grotto's at 11 and use their room for our workshop before lunch on Friday, Sept 4,    We will make 4 project for $12.00.  I am going to "pre-cut" many things for you so that we won't have to have carry a Big Shot there.  Hope to see you there!

Today's card has been rattling around in my head for a couple of days, so I finally sat down and make it.  It's another Sneak Peek from the Holiday mini.  I know you are going to love this catalog...and only 5 more days until it is finally live!!!


This card uses the Boo to You framelits and Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set bundle, the Woodland embossing folder, black glitter paper, and the super awesome Fine-Tip glue pen from the new catalog.

Chalk it Up to Love

Hello stampers!

I hope you had a nice weekend.  Remember that local Festival I told you about on Friday?  Well, Saturday morning we had rain...lots and lots of rain....more than 2 inches of rain.  Darn it!  The rest of the weekend was wonderful!  Hard to believe it's mid August and our temperatures are as spectacular as they are!

I had some crafting time this weekend.  Hooray!  I worked on some projects you will see here on the blog, finished up the last of my swaps, and started preparing materials for future classes.  Speaking of future classes, I have updated my calendar for the rest of the year.  Check out the schedule below for all the details!

But first, I have this month's Paper Pumpkin kit to share with you!  This is a really cute set - 6 cards with envelopes and 3 gift boxes.  Take a look!






Do you want to receive your own Paper Pumpkin every month, but you are not a subscriber?  Sign up by September 10 to get your first 2 months for free!  See the details below.

Good Things

Greetings stampers!

Happy end of the week to you!!!  This weekend is one of the best weekends of the year for crafters and lovers of hand crafted items in this area.  It's time for our annual Festival of the Little Hills.  For those of you that don't know, it's a 3 day outdoor craft show.  The historic town of St Charles Missouri is over run by more than 300 crafters and 100+ non profit food and beverage vendors.  It's not to be missed, so DH and I will be there at opening Saturday morning.

For my Delaware readers,  I am so excited to tell you that I will be there for a class on Sept 4!  The time, location, and details will be coming up (hopefully on Monday).  I hope to have the chance to meet you there!

Finally, since it's the end of the week, it's time for a card from my very talented sister!  I love the classic colors of this card!
