Yes, I know....... I have been a tad neglectful about posting to my blog lately. Do you really want to hear all the excuses why? That I am helping to plan a stamping event for October 30-Nov 1? That Hubby & I have family in Door Co. Wi, we visit like every other weekend? That I'm also getting neat things ready for a couple of upcoming Craft Shows....and that I'm getting together a few workshops....Nope, you probably don't......... but that's ok............ The one thing you can always guarantee is that I am having a lot of fun stamping!
So here are some cards I made for an upcoming class I will be teaching!! Watch for more details!

Vacationing in Door County

I'm taking a week off from crafting to enjoy some vacation time with the family. Here is a picture of hubby Kurt and I canoeing at Potawattamie Park in Sturgeon Bay (Door Co.). Our grandchildren were riding with us...I didn't want to be the leader, as you can see, looks like Kurt is doing more relaxing than paddling!! lol
It was alot of fun. The grandchildren , Kalei and Nathan were the best passengers a person could ask for! We stuck close to the shoreline looking for turtles and fish in the clear water.
So far we have had some picture perfect weather!!!

Stamp Camp

Last night I hosted a Stamp Camp. We mainly worked on birthday cards. I asked everyone if they would like to make a Birthday Card for my Mother-in-Law that will be turning 80.... we have a total of 7 to "shower" her with...she will difinitely get a kick out of this.
Three of my "students" were two of my daughters and my Mom!!!! They are not card makers, but I think they enjoyed themselves anyway!!

Fall Card

Since the weather has been so fallish, I was in the mood to try out one of my new stampsets from the new catolog, I love the fall, just don't want it to come tooo early!!!
The stamp set is called "Autumn Days", and I used all the new "In Colors". This stamp set can also be used for masculine card making.

Deal of the Week

Who says February and Valentine’s Day are the only times to share love? Show your love ALL YEAR LONG for family and friends with this fabulous deal of the week. Paper punches are perfect for much more than paper crafting! (See side bar for this weeks deal).

· How about using the hearts as bullet points in your journaling or list making for layouts?
· Create confetti or just sprinkle a trail down the hall to your child's bedroom.
· You could also place some punched hearts in the car seat of the driver or passenger. Add a note saying, "You've just been given a HEART ATTACK."
· Why not scatter punched hearts on the floor of the shower with the words, "You've are showered with love."
· Add confetti hearts inside a lunch box for a fun, loving surprise to the recipient.
· Place a clear plastic bag of hearts inside the office mailbox of a coworker or on her desk to show your appreciation for their friendship or latest achievement.
· Use the heart pieces inside a shaker box for a card cover or layout.
· Make a "bag of hearts" to place in your own mailbox for your mail carrier.
· Deliver a heart treat to your favorite teacher when school starts! What a great way to thank a teacher from the past or to begin the school year on a positive note with a new teacher.
· Scatter hearts on your sweetheart's pillow to discover at bedtime!

There are ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES for these heart punches! Order yours before the deadline on July 31!

Well it's been 3 weeks since I have been home from the hospital after getting a brand new knee.

I have been playing with my new stamps! So many cute new items in new 09 Spring/Summer catalog. I can't stop! My Nurse and Physical therapist get a kick out of my cards and how I am entertaining myself during my recuperation.

One card is from the JUst Buzzing Around stamp set and the other one is from Tiny Blooms.
