Woo Hoo I got to play today. This is a little suitcase Gina found online, I wanted one as soon as I saw the one on the cover of a mini catalog from Stampin up. I really love this and will be keeping it for myself. I also had time to make a few more bookmarks. I think I will use the suitcase to hold the bookmarks when I do craft shows.
Hope everyone has a great rest of their weekends.

Sponge Painted

A card I cased (sorry I can’t remember where from) but it is very pretty. As you know I like to sponge paint when ever I can and this one works good for that.

Gina's Stamp Camp

Oh such a fun time. This is the project we made at Gina’s Stamp Camp today. I will be making more of these to sale at the craft shows because I think they are just too cute. The group was a small one today and we missed those of you that couldn’t make it. I got a sneak peek at the new Stampin Up catalog today……… I can’t wait to order out of it! There are a few new punches I am going to have to have. The new colors are very nice and the new DP is sooooo pretty.

The Play House Rocks!!!!!!

The Make-A-Wish playhouse is done and what a beautiful playhouse it is. It is a 2 room 2 story. The top floor is a bedroom complete with a twin bed and matching beading. Downstairs is beautiful with a fireplace, table and 2 bean bag chairs. Our wish girl is very happy with it.
I will be taking a few weeks off before picking up another wish because this one was so labor intense and summer is our busy time at work. That will give me some time to play in my craft room.

Happy Birthday

I have not had much time to stamp this week because I am working on The Wish. I made curtains for the playhouse yesterday and can’t wait to get all the painting done this weekend.
I did have a chance to make this one the other day. It is still using the Gina inspired colors from the last hostess club.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Gina Inspired Birthday

This is a Gina inspired card I made for my oldest son’s 25th birthday. Yup I can’t believe it either…. He has almost caught up to me in age…
I have made myself a pretty little card to go on the back side of my name badge for Make-A-Wish. It really turned out pretty and helps me remember-There is nothing going to happen in my life I can’t handle with God.

June Hostess Club

Well this is the last Hostess club meeting but we had a great time. What a great bunch of ladies. As always Gina has out done herself with these cards. She will be the first to say they are “CASEd” but they all have her touch to them. Thanks again Gina.

I liked this card so much I had to buy this set.

Back all tan (burned) from the lake

Well we are back… No cards but a few pictures for you. We spent 4 days down at Elephant Butte Lake. We had such a great time. This is the first time Terry and I have gone alone in 22 years. We had a good time not keeping to any kind of schedule. We went out fishing on the boat every morning. Then we spent the day just hanging out or paddling around in the kayaks. I am not ready to go back to work tomorrow though. Wish I had a few more days to play.

I think I got the bigger fish!!!

On one of our walks I found these Devil's claws (Proboscidea louisianica). They are native to New Mexico but my husband (born and raised here) has never seen them. As kids we use to chase each other with them. I still think they are so cool.
