Greetings, Earthling!

Hi Stampers,

I actually got into my stamp room yesterday!!!  This was the first time (in a long time) I walked through those doors.  Life is moving so fast right now, and I'm trying to spend as much as I can with my family.  While Blake had a friend over to play I thought I would try out the new stamp set I purchase called Greetings, Earthlings!

If you've ever had one of those days when you just feel like you're from a different planet, you'll definitely appreciate this light-hearted set to help you tell your kids, "I come in peace." Five fun alien images, an intergalactic greeting, and a swirl accent complete this spaced out set that's great for children of all ages.

I picked out this stamp set thinking it would make cute Valentines, but the card I made yesterday was just for fun.

Here's the inside. . . I'm not sure who I'll send this card too, but I have it ready to go out!

Oh . . . before I go I wanted to share with you a picture of the reason I'm not stamping much right now.

Thanks for stopping by!

Inside View of SU!

Hi Stampers,

Today I'd like to share with you some pictures from Stampin' Up!'s Facebook page.

"With the amount of products flying off the shelves during Sale-A-Bration, we thought you might like an inside view of what happens on our end when you place an order.

After we get your order, the proper box is selected and a unique bar code is placed in the corner. That bar code tells the box where to go as it travels through the Distribution Center.

Your box’s first stop is along the Pick Line. Based on the information on your bar code, lights on the shelves tell pickers which and how many items go in each box.

After your box is loaded, weighed, and inspected for quality, it travels uphill to the packing area. The shipping label is applied, filler is added to keep things from moving around during shipping, and a fancy tape machine seals everything up.

After everything is labeled and sealed, your box travels back downstairs where it's loaded onto one of those beautiful brown trucks for delivery right to you!"
When I went to convention I was able to tour the facility. If you ever get to Riverton, Utah you'll want to stop by and check it out.  I'm not sure how much they'll show you, but they do have some they share.
Thanks for stopping by!

Thoughts and Prayers

Hi Stampers,

Last night was my first Tuesday card club of the new session and tomorrow is my first Thursday group.  I am super excited about this easy but elegant card I designed for them to stamp.

It uses the stamp set, Thoughts and Prayers.  Colors used are Crushed Curry and Whisper White.

I just love using the eyelet border punch to spruce up a project.  If you have any questions, please ask!

Thanks for stopping!

Walt Disney World

Hi Stampers,

Well I am very happy to report we had an AWESOME time in Florida at Disney World. The kids were great and we had a fun time.  Blake and I came down with the flu the night before our flight home and it was a very bad night.  I don't think anyone but Callie Ann got much sleep that night. 

I took a ton of pictures. . . . I'd hate to see how many there was before I went through and deleted a bunch of them.  I like to use my rapid shoot to get pictures, so where some people might just take one or two pictures I take 10 or 20 of them. :o)

Today I'd like to share a few of the pictures from our trip.  I wish I would have had time to use My Digital Studio to make some pages, but I ran out of time.

Epcot was the first park we went to. . . they say this "ball" is the most photographed item on Earth.

Callie Ann slept a lot while we were there, but we still got her photo with some of the characters. . . . below you'll find her with Minnie Mouse.

And while she was awake I got her picture taken with Tinkerbell.  I just wished she wouldn't have had a blow out in the cute outfit she started the day in.  Tinkerbell and her friends had fun talking about Callie Ann's "ladybug spots".

Blake was excited to get his picture taken with McQueen and Mater. . . Callie Ann was sleeping so she didn't get to be in the photo.

Since we had a Disney Visa credit card we got a private photo shoot with Goofy and Minnie Mouse. . . it was lots of fun!

Here's Blake at the Magic Kingdom . . . We visited this park a few days, but the first day we were there we spent 10 hours at the park. . . we were all having so much fun we didn't want to leave.

And here are the kids in their mouse ears. . . it's a must when you go to Disney.  We even purchased mouse ears for my niece and nephew. . . $70 later they all four had mouse ears with their names on the back of them.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just a reminder Tuesday and Thursday card clubs are THIS WEEK!!!

Valentine's Day Card

Hi Stampers,

Today's a quick post as I've scheduled it to post before I left for Florida. I'm so tired I don't even have time to talk about it, I just need to get up to bed before I have to get up to catch my flight to Florida.

Here I'm using it as a Valentine's but by changing the phrase it could very easy be a baby or a birthday card.

Thanks for checking out my card today!

Bring on the Cake

Hi Stampers,

Happy Friday!!!  This week has been a crazy week as we prepare to leave on a family vacation and get the house ready for the house/dog sitters to come and stay.  We are leaving tomorrow AM for Disney World and are so very excited.  The last two nights has been really hard getting Blake to go to bed as he's ready for the magic to start.

I hope to have time to set up some post to post while I'm gone, so keep checking back and I hope they'll post as planned.  Also remember you can shop 24/7 while I'm gone at  I'm not sure how much (or any) Internet access I'll have while we are gone, so if you e-mail me I'll get back to you when we get home.

Today I'd like to share with you a card I made using the new stamp set, Bring on the Cake, from the Occasions Mini Catalog, which started January 4th.

I just love the colors together. . . I think it makes for a happy birthday card. :o)  This is one of the card we will be making at card club, and I have one spot open in each of my clubs, so if you'd like to join us we'd love to have you.

For more information on my clubs click HERE.  To join a club e-mail me at or call 309-221-9288. (please note January clubs will be held on the 3rd week due to being gone.)

Thanks for stopping by and have a Magical Day!

Rocky's Birthday Card

Hi Stampers,

Today is Rocky's birthday and yesterday Blake and I made him a card.  We used the stamp, On the Green and the NEW stamp set, Bing on the Cake, which is in the Occasions Mini Catalog.

We used markers to color the "golf" stamp and the Birthday was colored using the VersaMarker. Since Blake was helping too we decided to keep the card simple.

Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for stopping by today!
