A New Bundle of Joy +SU! Stuff :)

I am so sorry for posting so late at night!  I wanted to fill you in...

You are probably wondering (or not, lol) where I have gone the last few days!  Well, guess what!!  My baby nephew arrived on Tuesday!!!  We (my little ones, mom, and sister) were waiting at the hospital for a while on this precious little one to enter the world!  Check out one of the cutest babies that I have ever seen!

Congratulations to my brother and Brittany!!

And, here's a bit about my day today.  My kiddo's + one (my daughter's friend, back left) wanted to do a lemonade stand.  Of course they were not getting ANY sales from our corner of the world so, they insisted that we go to the end of the street.  Well, being the kind of mom that I am it took me a little while to say YES.  I mean, you get me right?!  I would have to go with them and try to stay out of their little adventure with nothing to do but, make sure they do not go into on coming traffic.  I am secretly hoping that they file this away in their our Mom was cool when she....fill in the blank..memory files. :)  We made it through and I am happy to report that without spending ALL day on the corner (yep, lol) they each made close to $6.  We came back home and they had lunch (which was WAY late--like 2:30pm) and then I took them to 5 Below so that they could blow their money faster than they made it.  LOL.  

All in all it's been a great few days.

Thankful for Many Things! Stampin' Up!

Hello Stampin' Friends!

So, we are as back to normal as you can get.  My hubby is back to work (he was so NOT excited to go back today...then they called him and asked him to come in early...oh here we go).  He's the boss and every time he takes any time off things seem to go a bit hay wire.  So, for the next few days he will be on clean up duty.  All I have to do is keep the kids happy and try to keep the fighting/whining to a minimum! :)

Here is a card that I created before we left for our little vacation.  I didn't get a chance to get it uploaded.

Today I am thankful that my hubby is such a hard worker for his family.  He was hoping I would tell him he didn't have to go back.  Hmmm...nope, wish I could have though.  This card is perfect for anyone that you wish to thank or tell how much they mean to you!

I used the Blended Bloom stamp once again.  I would say that it has already paid for itself seeing as though I have made at least 10 cards with it and a scrapbook layout.  I will continue to make more cards because I just love coloring these petals!  

I also used the fun hexagon embossing folder.  I flipped it over and now the outline of the hexagon is debossed rather than embossed.  Now, that's an extra value because you can use either side to create a different look!

Instead of using the wonderful NEW Blendabilites, I chose to use my trusty Blender Pens with the Strawberry Slush ink pad to color my flower.  We do not have Strawberry Slush in the Blendabilities. :)

As a finishing touch I added some sparkle with my favorite bling:  Dazzling Diamonds!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Wish me luck with these kids ALL day. :)

It's (almost) Merry Monday :)

It's Merry Monday again. :)

I had a card ready for you (I thought) and when I went to upload them I was missing a good head on shot of the card.  I am going to get a good shot and I will post again later today.  I have a situation that I have to deal with first (read below). 

Here is your Merry Monday card:

I have used that retired stamp set for the second week in a row.  I know that Flakey Friends is no longer available but, you can substitute another set easily.  Use the card I have created as a sketch for another creation.  All of the colors are current along with the ribbon! :)

Is this too early for you?  Are you wondering what in the world I am thinking?  Let me know in the comment section!

My hope was to get my own Holiday Cards created slowly so, that once the BUSY season begins I will be looking pretty good!  Sounds like a good plan right? 

We just got back from a week at the lake and came home to the air conditioner deciding that does NOT want to go below 80 degrees.  Ugh, why oh why did I decide to mess with it before I left?!  I was trying to save a few bucks...well that has totally back-fired!  We have someone on the way over now so, I better clear a path for him in the basement, lol. ;)

Have a wonderful Monday and you will be seeing a few more posts this week!!
