RJ's favorite part was throwing rocks in the Lake. When we said we were going to the Lake, the first thing RJ would say was, "and we throw rocks in the Lake!". So he had a great time and he has a great arm!

Then I thought I would create the card again, but only this time, I changed the colors. Isn't it pretty? Don't know which one I like better. I used Mellow Moss, Riding Hood Red, White, & Kraft. Here it is:
The tree is embossed in white on both cards. The tree really pops on the Kraft Cardstock! And the ribbon is just so pretty! Another potential candidate for my Holiday Stamp-A-Stack.
Ok, I'm off to bed now. Good night!

Here is the final project we stamped at our last stamp club and my Day-Time Stampin'. This is such a fun card!!!
I know!!! Isn't the inside adorable? Imagine this card with some snowflakes or butterflies? I'll get right on it!! LOL. There are so many possibilites!! It's really quite simple, but don't get frustrated with making just one. After you make one of these cards, the second one is so much easier once you see how it all goes together. I promise!! You can see a tutorial on SCS here.
Have a great weekend!

Ink: Pacific Blue
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Pacific Blue, & Pumpkin Pie

For this first card, we used Crazy for Cupcakes, which is on sale this month!!! We used Watercolor Crayons and an Aquapainter (order a single Aquapainter this month for $7.25) on Watercolor Paper. For the balloons, we stamped the full balloon three times on Apricot Appeal CS. Then we stamped the balloon three times on DSP, then cut out. The striped balloon is popped up with Dimensionals to add some dimension.
For the second card, we used Party Hearty, which is also on sale this month!!! Did I mention that Stampin' Up! has some awesome promotions going on right now?!

I didn't have any Bashful Blue DSP, so I wheeled my Bashful Blue CS with my Snowflake Jumbo Wheel. And I personally did not prefer the Taffeta ribbon that they used, so I changed it out with the Red Striped Ribbon. I thought the striped ribbon was more whimsical and fun for this card. (I'll save my taffeta ribbon for the "pretty" stuff!) I colored the image with my blender pens and ink pads.
This card is a potential candidate for my upcoming Holiday Stamp-A-Stack. Dates coming soon!

Just dropping in to share a couple of project ideas that I took from Stampin' Up's Demostrator website and my personal Demonstrator Website.
Below is a pillow box created from The Big Shot! Isn't it cute?
And here is a very simple, but very cute card! My stamp area is a work in progress. Cabinets and countertop are in and I'm putting everything back into it's new home! I absolutely love it! My husband worked very hard this weekend to get it all together! And he even had time to watch the Cowboys football game! Yes, they won, and no, I don't rent him out!!
I'll have a few more things to share with you this week. I need to work on my stamp club for Friday, so I'll have some new stuff to share. I also hosted a great swap with our local demonstrator groups and I have some great ideas to share with you.
Have a great week! Thanks for stopping by!
