Sunny Days

The weather has been so wonderful this summer. We have been so luck to have pretty sunny days that are not too hot. And the evenings have been almost cool.. Very comfortable for sitting outside and enjoying our newly landscaped backyard.

Here are a few pictures of our yard. Before we had sod put down it was mostly weeds! We have beautiful trees but they were keeping the grass from getting much sun. Last year we had the trees limbed up and now we have sun and a lovely backyard. Enjoy the tour!

You Are Fabulous

Stampin’ Up Convention was held last week in Salt Lake City. As usual we had great classes, enjoyed seeing demonstrations and saw some cool displays. We had the opportunity to play with new products, practice using Blendabilities and used some new stamp sets. We even had the opportunity to purchase some of the new products that will be in the Occasions Catalog. This catalog has some fun Halloween stamps, perfect Thanksgiving items and a wide array of Christmas stamps, paper and accessories. You will not be disappointed!

We also attended a Western Themed Cowboy party. I even rode the mechanical bull. None of my traveling buddies had the nerve to try it.

A new event at convention this year was display boards created by demonstrators. My group participated in this opportunity. We were asked to create about 50 cards/scrapbook pages and decorative items. All our cards were lovely – IMHO!

I had to wait until after convention before I could share, but now I can share them here.

This card has lots of glittery sequins and pearls. Bling is good.

See the ribbon? I dyed the white ribbon with Rich Razzelberry reinker. Love the soft color.

This sentiment works for so many types of cards. Don’t you have a Fabulous Friend you could send a card? I know I do!

Boys Will Be Boys

I never have enough “boy” cards in my stash. So I sat down (actually I stood up – I can’t stamp sitting down!) and created a few fun cards for the boys in my life. One of these will go to a sweet boy who is having a birthday today. Happy Birthday, Liam! baseball star copy snokeling fun copy Product List
