So where did yesterday go? I was very busy doing a whole bunch of nothing... First, we decided to enjoy a nice breakfast at Cracker Barrel & picked up some goodies for the Grandmas of the family ~ nice smelling hand lotion & soap; fresh & fruity candle; and a pretty Sunflower arrangement for the sun porch. The girls decided that they needed new Webkins ~ and as a result ~ they both jumped on the computers to register & play. AND I didn't get to be online at all. SO, I decided to play with my Unity Goodness. I've come to the point were I need to catalog my stamps ~ I stamp on computer paper & put it in a zippered 3 ring binder. This helps me 2 ways ~ first to make sure that the stamp is good & 2nd to enable to figure out which images I used when uploading a card.

I made a couple of cards yesterday ~ here is my favorite one. It is for the Featured Stamper (Dawn L) Challenge over at SCS.

Items Used:
Smooch paints
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Memento ink
Brilliance ink

Happy SUnday!!! What do you think of my heading picture? It's one of my assistants walking on the Yorktown, VA Beach... I love the footprints in the sand.... One the reasons I love living here is the great beaches... they are so much fun to go to ~ except during summer ~ when there are just too many people for my taste. I love to take the girls to the beach after school & let the do their homework & frolic in the water a bit...

Today I thought I would showcase another great stamping company that I love~ Stampin Up. I used to be a 'hobby' demo in a previous version on my life ~ but now I am just a happy customer. I had dreams of hosting fun stamp camps in my home ~ but alas, now that is impossible ~ just too small of a place... back to my Life 2.0... the adorable mouse is from a retired set called And Everything Mice & it's colored using the SU Watercolor Crayons ~ which are my 2nd favorite coloring tools after my Copics. I'm not too sure about the papers that were used ~ as this is a card that I put together for the WishRAK Cards for the Troops Challenge back in Jan 09.

If anyone knows how to get my heading picture centered on the top ~ please leave me a comment ~

Actually, I love all comments ~ so feel free to leave me one regardless!!!

I'll Be Working Up a Storm...

YES!!! My scheduled post worked!!! Now I'm working on tweaking things here & there. I'm hoping to make a list of Blogs that I :LUV: ... but I want to get permission before I add them. I'm not too sure of the whole Blog Etiquette concerning that type of thing ~

Of course, working on my new blog is not the only thing I'm wanting to do (or having to do) today... I really want to play with my new Unity Goodness... my assistants insist on going to the pool today (not a pool person myself ~ so I just hang-out listening to my iPod & doing SuDoKu)... and for some reason the place just refuses to clean itself....

Testing Future Posting

This is fun ~ like a new class ~ trying to read up & figure out the lingo. I had a computer programming class in college many moons ago & let's just say ~ it wasn't my best subject. I just hope that I'll be a little better at this then I was back then.

I've decided to dig into my archives of cards to find something not on my SCS Gallery... I made this card using an image from Pink Petticoat (digital image). I love these images for quick cards~ they are very 'happy' & work great with my Copics & the bright SU paper (I think it's Gable Green). Other items I used were my Cuttlebug with the Embossing Folder & my Nesitibilities, and Stickles. This card was sent to the WishRAK Cards for the Troops challenge back in Jan.

Starting out...

Here it is... what I've been putting off doing for ...let's see... forever... but I really want a place to share my cards. And probably do a lot of rambling... I've got a lot to learn ~ but really what else should I be doing this summer ~ cleaning?!?! Let's see if I can add a picture....

If this works ~ this card is made using some of my favorite Unity stamps ~ my wonderful assistants helped with this card... I used Stampin Up Certainly Celery paper & ink, PTI ribbon that I received thru SCS WishRAK , & Bazzil paper. My base card is GP ~ which I like very much...
