Club Cards....

These are this months club cards....
also we made the 50th Birthday from the previous post.

Sorry it's a quick post. I am exhausted but cannot sleep. My Dad is in the hospital tonight. He went to help my brother (that lives in McHernry, Illinois, the other side of Chicago) remove a tree that had fallen on his house. Well, Dad fell off the roof and has a fractured pelvis. He did not want to be admitted to a hospital in the US so my brother drove him back home (6 hour drive that they had just done the night before) to be admitted early this morning. He is bumped and bruised and in some pain. There was some internal bleeding has that has stopped and he will not need surgery. Crazy man is 63 yrs old but thinks he is'd think by now he's have outgrown that notion!

Please keep my my in your thoughts.

Thanks for stoppin' in!

I have cards to share!!

I have been busy but making time for stampin' too! I was commissioned to make a few Birthday cards for a customer. These first three are for her....

And this little sweetie is something I just finished. I used the NEW Petite Pocket die! I love this die!

The Stamp Set is called Kindness Matters. These three beautiful butterflies are one stamp, except they line up horizontally. I used a Soft Suede marker and my favorite tool, the Stamp-a-ma-jig, to get the butterflies lined up vertically. The colours I used are Crumb Cake, the dark blue is a New In Colour called Island Indigo, and the lighter blue is call Pool Party, also an New In Colour! Love them!!

I have been very busy stampin' Wedding Invitations too. My oldest brother is getting married in October. So my Mom offered our services making the invitations! They need 120 of them. I have lots to do, but I have made a good dent in the work. I will post those soon. I am heat embossing a red rose.....120 of them. I think I have 45 done. I am using Cherry Cobbler Craft Ink and Clear Embossing powder....the colour is so rich and it is exactly the colour of red as the bridesmaids dresses.

Well, thanks for stopping by. I will have more tomorrow. I have our club cards to share with you. We had a Summery theme going on there!

Have a great day!

Best of Everything..

That's the name of this cute stamp set! I was so lucky to get this one on the Stampin' Up! Incentive Cruise. I played with it right away when I got home. I have not been able to share this card with you until you know why?? Because the NEW 2010/2011 Idea Book and Catalogue is LIVE!! If you want your copy, call me!!

Although when I created this card I did not know that the "FRIEND" stamp I used from the "Friends 24/7" stamp set would be retiring :(
The colours are Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait...cannot believe these colours are 1 year old now. Have you seen the NEW 2011 In Colours yet?? Be sure to check those out! Love 'em!!

Love the bird, love the branch, love the whole stamp set...there are many more images in the set too!!

I am going to set up some linky things so that you can click to see the new catalogue. Wish me LUCK!

And if you have already seen the catalogue and want to place an order.....I am placing an order tomorrow evening and I am expediting it to be here in 2 days!! Call me!

Take care! Thanks for stoppin' in! Keep stamping!
