Tiffany and Junior got off ,and the tears flowed a little bit. Gramma and Grandpa are enjoying their time with Brayden. I think he was a little sad, when he got up from his nap and Mommy and Daddy hadn't returned. But all in all we had a good day.
Didn't get any stamping done. But I do have a 12x12 page that I made awhile ago.
When Brayden sleeps today I'm going to try and get some stamping done, unless I need a nap also. And that very well could be..
Thanks for looking.

What a nice day! An exciting day for me, later on this afternoon I will be seeing Brayden. I’m leaving sometime this morning to drive there.
We will be driving back on Friday afternoon, and attending Skip’s sisters wedding in the evening.
Yesterday I didn’t get any crafting done :( . After doing a few loads of laundry in the dryer it decides to stop working. Well 2 fuses blew! So finally Skip got it working again Yeah.
My card for the day is another 3x3.
This stamp set is called Eight Great Greetings #113822 from the occasions mini…
Here is a 3x3 Easter card using the Eight Great Greeting from the occasions mini.
Again not a great photo. You can order this set now, even though the mini only starts April 1st.
Last night I worked for HOURS on a power point presentation. This is the frist time I have tried it. Should of started it a lot sooner as I need it for tonight. I think its ok for a beginner. Cody helped me add some music.
Until later Happy Stamping

Just a week left to get those SALE-A-BRATION items you want. Once April 1st rolls around they are gone for good. Also the Anniversary Special is running until the 28th. I will be out of town Thursday and returning Friday.
Do you know anyone who keeps a box of emails to read and re-read time and time again? Neither do I. But I know plenty of people who have boxes of cards and handwritten letters, they re-read over and over again! People love to keep personal notes and letters. So why not make someone’s day and make your card and mail it off. I have lots of old cards around. Most of these cards have something special about them – who they came from, the occasion or maybe a just because card! In my kids baby books I have the cards that was sent when they were born. As much as you enjoy making your cards others are also enjoying looking at them.

Just to say that we will love all that is new! Hmmp the waiting game is on I guess. June is when it will all be revealed. But you never know something might get out sooner. I will keep my eyes opened and if I do see something I will for sure let you know.
I used the Flight of the Butterfly here. I cased this and sorry I cannot remember where I found it. I really need to start making notes.
I also have to do some planning for upcoming classes and club night. And the week that Brayden is here I know I will not be getting awhole lot done. I want to enjoy him all I can :) I love being a Gramma!
Don't forget about my sale that is happening , also just a few more days for Sale-a- Bration. From the upcoming occassions mini you can order the Easter sets.
Have a creative day and thanks for popping in.

What drives you crazy??? Well one thing for me is when my Stampin’Up! Order is sitting in Quebec for a few days. It will be Monday before the boxes arrive. They (the boxes) arrive in Quebec on the 19th! Wish we had deliver on the weekends! We could be playing with our new goodies.!
I only have 4 more sleeps! Until I see Brayden ;) then he will be coming here. And staying with Grandpa and Gramma for a week. I’m so excited… Hopefully when he does come here we will have some spring weather so we can get outdoor and play.
Next week there should be some sneak peaks coming out. This week there are demo’s in Hawaii , yes you read correct Hawaii for a Stampin’ Up! Conference. These gals worked really hard to earn this trip! Should be hearing what the new In Colors will be for July and maybe some designer paper who knows maybe a stamp set or two! We will have to wait and see.
I will try and get some take a few photo's today and will post later.
Thanks for stoping in.
Remember my special is on until the 28th.

Well last night I was going to go on my msn live messenger and it froze. Apparently it did more than freeze as I cannot access that program now. Grrr.. computers sometimes I would just like to throw it. Not sure what we will do when Cody moves, as he is our go to guy now. I’m sure he is not going to want phone calls from Mom all the time asking what to do! And today I found that the computer is running slow, especially on some sites.
March break is this week, I will have Giovanni here every day with me this week.
I made this luggage tag, on the back it has my name, address and phone number and a little flower stamped. The girls will be making these on Wednesday. Today is the last day to register for this class.

There is no card to post again today. I will try and get some pictures taken today. Then if I have time I will post later on.
You know I’m liking that the evenings are lighter outside. But I just cannot seem to get my body adjusted to this time change. I am a night owl and all week have been forcing myself to go to bed, come mornings I just want to stay in bed. How long does it take for your body to adjust to the 1 hour difference. I would think that it shouldn’t take a long time.
I don’t own this stamp set yet but its on my wish list. Its called
Fifth Avenue Floral #113734
The beautiful, modern flowers in the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set share the sophistication and styling of its namesake. You can choose to watercolor these line-art images, or leave them uncolored and layer them for a refined floral collection.
Set of: 5
Until later keep on stamping.

I see that I'm still having some trouble with the time stamp. Not sure why this is posting under Friday's date.
The weekend is here, hope you are enjoying yours! Today our weather is supposed to see the sun and temperature should rise to +7 c. Oh my can’t wait to see that sunshine…
Later on today I will be holding a stamp class using mainly all SAB products. We will be using the olive glitter from the fine supernova #114287. Last night was the first time I used this color. I put some in my container got the spoon ready with glitter. SOME how I hit the spoon and the glitter went up in the air . Like the song says what goes up must come down , Yup all over me and the desk… I sparkled for the rest of the night :)
From now on Saturday’s post will also include information about Stampin’ Up! Products.
If I could come up with a catchy title I would of but right now I must be having a brain freeze.
So we will start off with-
2-Way Glue Pen #100425
Features & Benefits
■ Permanent or temporary bond
■ Dries quickly
■ Great for adhering glitter
■ Blue when wet; clear when dry
■ 10 grams
■ Chisel tip
■ Washes off skin with soap and water
Need a temporary bond for a stencil or mask? Or what about a permanent bond for
a card or page? Look no further than the 2-Way Glue Pen. Wow your customers with a
demonstration of the two methods for using the 2-Way Glue Pen:
1. Wet bond (permanent bond). While the glue is still blue and wet, immediately make the
bond. Use a wet bond when you apply glitter.
2. Dry bond (temporary). Apply glue lightly and wait for the adhesive to dry (it will become
clear). Use this method when masking or positioning stencils. When you are finished, you
can remove the bond easily
To start the 2-Way Glue Pen, push the tip in a few times and allow the glue to saturate the
tip (the tip will turn blue). Always replace the cap after use.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by enjoy.
Wow its Friday again, where did the week go? I don't know about you but I find the weeks just fly on by.
Coming in April a brand new punch…. Scallop Oval punch $19.95. Imagine the possibilities with this. Definitely a must on my list of "needs" wants. I love punches don’t you?
Here's my card pick of the day.
Using the stamp set Refuge and Strength # 115056
Have a great day...
Wednesday, March 4, 2009
I just have to tell you what happened to me. I was stamping the other night and was using the marker to color the stamp. When I went to give it a huff, I came just a little too close to my mouth ! Yup I was wearing Bashful Blue lipstick lol… Didn’t taste that great either. So lesson learned don’t put an inked stamp too close to you mouth.. Now that’s what I should of took a picture of. Thank goodness it washed off , or I wouldn't of been leaving the house!
Today’s card uses the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set #111618. Bella Rose DSP #112041. Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red card stock .Old Olive 5/8” grosgrain ribbon # 109054.
I really need to start taking better photos! oh well at least it still can be seen..
Thanks for taking a look today... And I also have to learn how to make watermarks on my photo's maybe in the next couple of weeks I can work on that...

Thanks for taking a peek today.
Monday, March 2, 2009
We are expected to get roughly 4 yes 4 hours of freezing rain. I would say there goes our power! Hopefully not, but if it does at least I can still stamp until my fingers get too cold. I know one thing I’m not liking this. Hello - Spring where are you?
I have been working on swap cards again. We are having a local demo meeting Tuesday night. You know when stampers get together they want to swap. I will post my swap cards on Wednesday.
Here is another card made using the Embrace Life set.
Embrace Life #114958. Card stock is basic black, Kiwi Kiss, and whisper white. 5/8" striped grosgrain ribbon #111372. And the new eyelet border punch #113692.
