How about this weather??  Can you believe it.  I just went outside and it is pouring rain.  But I'm not complaining -- who would complain about rain in January?  I just have this awful feeling we will be in for a real surprise before June gets here (have we ever had snow in May?)  One of the reasons I love living in Michigan -- you just never know what the weather will be like, and if you think you know than 9 times out of 10 you will be wrong.

I finally got started today working on my assignment from Ronda for her Sale-A-Bration Kick-Off Event.  I'm not lying when I say I sat at my work table for almost 4 hours looking at my designer paper trying to get something to pop in my brain.  Well nothing really popped right up in my mind, so decided to try this new idea using one of our new dies.  After wasting one whole sheet of designer paper, my brain started working.  So my whole day was spent just thinking (which we all know is hard for me) and I only finished one sample!!  Now I know why my doctor has been sending me for all this testing.  I could have saved myself a lot of time and money if she would have asked me and I could have answered -- "No, I don't have a working brain at the moment.  It hibernates in the winter -- Don't they all?"  So I am really hoping my creative juices will runnith over tomorrow and the man in brown shows up at my door to bring the rest of my supplies.

Oops, I almost forgot.  You came here to see something new.  So here are the rest of my cards from my card class:

Supplies:  Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper; Melon Mambo and Whisper White Card Stock; Distressing Essentials (Tea Stain Ink); Soft Suade Classic Ink; Fleurette; Pretty In Pink Brad; Organza Ribbon; and Tagtastic Stamp Set.

This card design came from Ronda Wade.  Supplies:  Pretty In Pink, Real Red, and Whisper White Card Stock; Real Red Classic Ink; Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon; P.S. I Love You Stamp Set; Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder; and the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies.

Another Design from Ronda Wade.  This was a card we made at her SAB Baggie Book class.  I didn't have the same ribbon she used (new Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon), so used the Poppy Parade 1/2 Stitched-Poly Ribbon (I love this line of ribbon, it ties up so nice and neat).  Other Sale-A-Bration product used (my favorites):  Fresh Vintage and On Your Birthday Stamp Sets; Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper; Pool Party and Poppy Parade Classic Ink; and Pool Party, Poppy Parade, and Whisper White Card Stock.
 Happy stamping everybody -- I think I will go have a very small glass of wine (if I can find some), its just that kind of night.

Until next time,

For my two younger sisters who will be flying in an airplane for the first time with me soon (after 60 years of their first life):

  1. I like how you did the first are so good with vintage. The second one you used my favorite colors and I love the design. Now the last one, WOW, I love the vibrant colors (may have to case that one!) Your customers will really like these. TFS
