Back to Stamping

Where does the time go?!? It's been so hot & humid here you can't think straight. I know we aren't alone in that this time of year, but it's been brutal. Some rain along the way, but never enough! We had county fair last week, so were busy before that getting things ready to enter. We don't do alot, but have fun with it. The boys each did a rocket, an electrical project, woodworking & photography, and took peppers & gourds from the garden. They did well on most everything and have 2 things going to the State Fair at the end of the month.

The boys started school on Monday. That 12 weeks off really went fast! So far with school, so good. It's always an adjustment though getting them back on schedule. And each new grade brings new challenges. I really can't believe that I have a 7th grader & a 5th grader. Where does the time go?!?

OK, to the stamping! I haven't been doing much, but finally hit on an inspiration tonight. Here is a card I came up with for a swap I need to mail this week. Still not sure that's going to happen, but I'm going to give it a shot. The idea is always one of the biggest challenges! I've thought about it for several days unsuccessfully! Finally today something clicked.

The set is Snow Burst from the upcoming Holiday Mini. Paper is Shimmery White & Purely Pomegranate. Isn't that new ribbon FABULOUS!!! It's also in the new mini. Watch your mail or contact me if you need one! LMK what you think of this card.

Oh, a bit of good news. Well, sort of. The new vehicle we picked out is a 2008 Buick Enclave, but they are not well stocked yet and we were not able to find one locally. So, we are ordering one from GM and it should be here sometime after mid-October. We're actually saving quite a bit by doing this because we could take off the expensive options like DVD players and fancy wheels. The bad news is the wait. It's going to be hard but will hopefully be worth it!

Thanks for stopping by, I'm headed back to stamping!

This is beautiful. That set is on my list, but had to wait, because there were others that just had to come first.
