Pin It


Thanks So Much

Happy Sunday! I received a super nice comment from Nicole B. on Friday who is a dedicated SU customer and was looking forward to my Stampin' Up! Saturday posts, so I decided I needed to share a card! (This one is mostly SU!) I have been such a deadbeat stamper!! The last two weeks I got sucked into a seven book series, then a six book series, and I get a little obsessive-compulsive about finishing them, sigh. DH asked me, "Do you ever just read a one book?" haha! I need to look into that!

I'm half-way through the last book now, then I am determined to get back into my stamp room, yay! I have a load of new Stampin' Up! stuff just waiting to get inked up! In the meantime, here is a card I made on my last scrapbooking retreat in May for a swap. I used the Oh, Hello set and the Epic Day This and That designer series paper. I copied the layout of the card from one on page 21 of the new Stampin' Up! catalog. I loved the ribbon folded through the safety pin! The photo below shows the Heidi Swapp Gold Shine spray a little better.

I have one more week of teacher in-service then the students come back on August 26, yay! I cannot wait to see them! I've also been busy the last two weeks with this little guy we adopted from the SPCA, which you may have already seen if we're Facebook friends:

He's about the sweetest, most well behaved dog ever! We've gone back and forth on names, but we're thinking he's Scout now. We lost Nick almost two years ago, and DH has been waiting patiently on me to be ready for another dog, and I just woke up one Sunday and knew it was time. :)

I hope you're all doing well and I bet many of you are preparing for back to school as well! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Your card is sweet but Scout is sweeter! I love dogs.....and then some! He is a beautiful color! And I have to say my stamping takes a back seat to my reading as well once I get going. How you have a great school year......I still mss getting. My classroom ready every August!

WOW, very surprised to see my name in that post!
I really have missed your SU creations! However, all of your work inspires me. It is crisp and clean, but i a FUN kind of way!
Congrats on the new dog...adorable, and looks so innocent in those photos!
Have a happy day~
