card kits

I LOVE the card kits! I made 18 cards in less than 30 minutes!
So cool, fun, and EASY! Of course, they can be dressed up a bit, and embellished, or not.
Saturday through the following Saturday, all the card kits will be 20% off! Which would make this Christmas card kit $14.36 for 18 cards!
The Rock Star and Flower Power kits will be 12.75 for 10 to 12 cards.
don't miss the fun!

time to think about Halloween

I am not a big Halloween fan. Sorry. I know lots of people who LOVE it. My dad loved it. He loved to sit on his porch and pass out candy to the hundreds of kids that came by. He would dress up too. Mom would start buying candy about now. They had close to 500 trick or treaters each year. We started the tradition of going to their house, and Jonathan would help pass out the candy with my dad. I guess Jonathan was 5 when he finally asked if he could go door to door. Which oddly enough, he hasn't done yet.
Anyway, it is time to start thinking about Halloween fun.
Kayla was here Friday afternoon, and made this adorable treat box. She is too talented.

too cute calendar

I love these new calendar kits that will be available October 1st! They are so fun and easy. What a GREAT gift! They show them with the super cute mini clip boards too. I left the extra stickers, so that who ever ends up with it, can use them as they chose.

loving the new butterflies

I am loving the new butterfly set. I made this card super fast, because I was running out of time today. And it was cute! I love stamp sets like this.
Don't forget stamp a stack tonight at 7 pm, or as close to that as you can.
I have about 4 spots left.

Glass Etching Class

This was a lot of fun and I can't wait to see what all you guys end up making!
The first time, I didn't use enough of the paste, so remember that! I really like the oval frame and the flower stamp. The second time was better, but I don't like the frame I made as much.
It will be tons of fun, and easy peasy! Come and make a vase! cost is $5 and we start at 7 pm.

stamp club

Monday is Spring Valley's family night at chick fil a! Go by, dine in, drive thru, say you are with Spring Valley and our PTA will get % of your order!
The new Stamp Club will begin Monday night (September 15th at 7 pm), and I will have a couple chick fil a platters... have to do my part! So come make this fun card with new stamps and ribbon, and watercolor crayons (it is MUCH prettier in person, the background grass sets it off), have a snack, and learn about stamp club!
We will assign the hostesses this night!
So far I have these people down for club:
Ira Ann
If I over looked someone, I am terribly sorry. You don't have to be on this list to come, all are welcome.
Let me know if you have any questions.

visiting the past

Wow! What a weekend!
I am so very thankful that mom sold her house, I really am, but geesh
I think this process may take the life right out of me!
We have packed up things for 4 straight days, and I am wore completely out!
So please forgive me for not being on top of Stampin' things for a while, once we have this behind us, I can go back to biz as usual. But until then, I will be scarce. Please call me or email me if you need anything! I will be back! I promise!
It was fun to see things I hadn't seen in years, or ever even. We had lots of laughs, and lots of tears as we packed away her life, and put a lot of it on the curb. So, in keeping with the treasures from the past, I will share this card with you today.
I made it for a mops get together last year. I love it. It is simple and pretty. I love the colors, I know the blue is no longer around, but I think there are other blues that would sub in nicely!
have a great day.
