Get ready to sit a spell! I have a long post! hehe
Elated is the word...we are leaving tomorrow on a vacation to see my family! I haven't been home in two years...can't wait to see everyone again, tour the beautiful hills and plains, and share it with my girls...the place where I grew up. There are so many things to see in South Dakota and the atmosphere is just so different than N.Y. People are warm and friendly and chat with you in line at the store, you can even keep your car running while you go in to grab something. Ha Life is so much slower out there.
I could sure use a good dose of my mom too. She's my best friend in the whole world and I miss her dearly. I miss being able to just hang out and chat in person and spend time with her. They have been here to visit, but with the cost of plane tickets these days, we can't afford to fly the 4 of us out there each year. So we haven't been there for 2 years. We are all packed and ready for our flights! Seriously, I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight! :)
Before we go, I wanted to share with you my next card kit that will be available SOON at Create My Keepsake! Papers, chipboard, rub ons and letters are from the new Pink Paislee - Pop Fashion line and they are drop-dead gorgeous in person! You are not going to want to miss this one! If you are a kit member, you'll receive your kit e-mail soon with all of the information. If you are not a member, you can purchase a kit on or after August 15th at CMK under "current kits" and you should see the August Card Kit there. It won't be posted until the 15th, so I don't have a direct link at this time, but as soon as they are available, I can post one for you. If you wish to become a member, click HERE to purchase a membership. Here are the sneak peeks!
Also wanted to share some exciting news....I was asked to be the August Guest Designer for Magistical Memories!! Wow, I love their chipboard and had a blast creating with it! I still have a few things to make when I return, but I wanted to share a few items with you...
The first is a locker mirror that I created for my niece with the Jumbo Scallop Circle. I covered the chipboard circle with paper, stitched a bit, layered it over a 5 inch mirror and added some letters to spell out my niece's name. She requested blues and greens, so I hope she likes it! Papers and stickers are the new Basic Grey - Euphoria line. (A shout out to Lisa from RAH!! Thank you so much for thinking of me!)
This is a fun card made with the Fancy Frames chipboard! Papers are October Afternoon and Sassafras Lass. Love these fun, colorful stickers by Creative Cafe as well!! I thought the little curled paper added to the festiveness. lol
And last but not least..."Happy Day" card made with the awesome Birthday Hat chipboard and a Ric Rac border! It was so easy to cover the chipboard with paper, add a sentiment and viola...a cool card to give to someone special! Don't these papers evoke happiness? Love them!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today, and thank you all for the sweet words in my last post...your comments really mean so much to me! I love that everyone is so supportive of each other in scrapbooking. Hugs, Danielle
