Christmas in July

WOW!  I am trying to figure out how it is almost the end of the month!  I wish summer would not go so fast!! Since it is the 25th and Christmas in July I am sharing a Christmas card I made last week.  I am hoping to get a jump start on my cards for this year!  Sorry it is not the best picture!! I hope everyone is keeping cool!  I am really enjoying the warm weather!!

My last Stamp-a-fair Challenge Tie Die


This is the last challenge that i finished.  There are a few more that I have started and have not been able to finish.  Here is my take on one of the three tie die technique's that Nichole shared yesterday.  I have used only PTI on most of my work so I only had two reinkers from PTI black and the old formula of simply chartreuse.  SO I went for it with them and really like how it came out!  I will be doing this one again soon!

Stamp-a-fair Make Your Own Embellishment Challenge

Here is my take on making your own embellishment.  I used Melissa Phillips ribbons.  I hope to try them all soon.  It was much easier than I thought it would be!

Afternoon!  I am enjoying a lovely afternoon in my craft room.  Well really I have been stamping poorly and throwing away!  I am taking the Stretch your Stamp Class on line which is fun.  I am learning lots but having issues with my stamps today!  I did manage one card with out issue.  Today's class was about using letter stamps in various ways. I did the masking technique. 

The letter set is CTMH and I used Dot Spot Stamp Set from PTI.  I used PTI Terracotta,  Melon Berry and Chartreuse inks.  Paper is white PTI and I am not sure of what the basis is I used it from my stash.  Thanks for stopping by!

100th post

To most it is not may to me it is a mile stone!  I really enjoy reading blogs but seem to have a hard time putting the words that are in my head into a blog post!  I had a busy start to my weekend my sister and her family came by for a quick over night on the way to there beach week in South Carolina with her husband Kevin's family.  I love getting nephew time time even if it is a quickie!  Here is a cute shot of me and Robert in our shades!  He loves to ham it up!  His older brother Harry is not a camera kid and I only got a few shots of him from the side.
After they left Saturday morning I spent the rest of the day doing various things around the house.  I did spend a little time in my craft room and made a few cards.  Today I also spent time there too.  I made about 25 cards in the past two weekends. With the temps in the 100's both weekends being outside was way over rated!  Here is one I made last weekend!  

A quick birthday card I made using very little stamping. I used paper and ribbon.  I stamped it with my go to PTI Happy Birthday stamp from Signature Greetings.  I wish everyone a wonderful week!
