Better Late Than Never!

Happy Sunday!  I swear that the weeks are flying by this summer!!  I can not believe it is already the last day of July!  I finally got in the craft room today after two weeks away.  I was out of town last weekend at my best friends we had planned to do some crafting but just never made it.  So today after my sister and her family left here I headed to my craft room.  I was able to get two cards done before I needed to move on to other things!  One is my challenge for July Papertrey Inkers and the second one is my August Papertrey Inkers Challenge.  I still need to get back in to my room to make a few Birthday cards for some up coming Birthdays.  I will only be showing my July card today and will have the other one up tomorrow.  Here is the dets for the July Challenge and my card.  It was hard!!  Thanks Debra for making me think out side the box!

1. NO layers, use ONLY your card base.
2. NO embellishments (I heard that gasp...) No ribbon, buttons, glitter, flowers etc.
3. Embossing is OK.
4. Use either a brand new, uninked stamp set, or a long forgotten one. Try to use only one set, but multiples are OK, if you must.

I used Quilter's Sampler for my stamp set.  I did not have any new unstamped sets, so I used one that I have not used in a long time.  Paper is Papertrey Fine Line using Memento Black Ink and Close to My Heart Cotton Candy.  

Thanks for Stopping By!  Have a wonderful week!

Summer Camp Week Three

Greetings!  You say that you had no idea I was taking part in Summer camp??  Where were the last two weeks entries?  Well they are yet to be created!  I was hoping that by signing up for this class it would get my mojo back.  I think it is finally coming out but between work and so many other things going on I just have not had the time to sit and create.  The card I finally finished today I started on Monday!  It took me a week to finish a card!! Wow I think that is the longest it has ever taken me!  I am happy with my out come and hope to go back into the craft room this evening to make a few other things!
Thanks for stopping by!  

Stamp set:  Lizzie Anne Sweats & Treats
All other supplies are Stampin' UP!

Happy Sunday!  I am finding it hard to craft and blog this summer!  Work is busy and my social life is too!  I was out of town again last weekend for a wedding and this weekend I went to Ikea!  I think I will be home next weekend! Yay! I am hoping for crafting instead of cleaning!   I made this card a few weeks ago for a co worker's Birthday.  I love how fast it came together!  I used all Papertey Products.  Thanks for stopping by!  I plan to have more later in the week!
