Another AA Entry

Hey there,

Yes, the craft show is over and it was a busy day! I had a lot of fun and met some GREAT people! I will load the pictures and post them as soon as I can find my camera. That would help now wouldn't it?!

Here's another entry for the Artisian Awards. I really LOVE this card. I sure wish I had it back lol. The only thing that would have made it BETTER is if I had embossed the text. That's it. LOVE the glitter!

Been Busy.... & AA Entry

trying to alter a BUNCH of stuff for the craft show I have coming up next week. It's here locally and the only summer one I'll be in. It's the Pennsy Art Fair. Feel like stopping BUY to see what I have??? Come on down!

Sorry I've been neglecting you guys. I am going to show you what I made for the Artisan Awards Contest that Stampin' Up! holds every year. I don't think I'll try for next year. While I understand that winners from last year can enter again this year, I just don't think it is fair.

One of the winners won again, which is GREAT for her, but I cannot compete w/a person who can put in a $700 order for the contest... wowsers... not to mention it doesn't give the rest of us a chance really. Oh enough whining... I'd like Chipolte Chedda to go with that (my new FAVORITE cheese!!).
Here's one of the cards I made for the AA. It's a z fold card. I also did crayon resist on glossy paper AND made a 3D flower w/the doodle this set. VERY cool! The other pic shows the inside of the card.

Oh and in case you are interested, here's the link for the stamp sets that are now on the DORMANT List. Meaning they won't be in the Fall/Winter Catalog, but will be available to purchase thru the Fall/Winter Catalog... have I confused you yet?! hehehe

Lgirl's Birthday Invites

Okay, here is the picture of Lgirl's birthday invites. They are the 'ever popular' popsicle cards. I made them 4x3 so they would fit into a regular envelope. I also made them open at the top so I could get 3 out of one 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper.

This is a picture of Lgirl in her graduation cap from her Preschool Graduation. Next year she starts kindergarten! Can you believe it?! Wowsers. Time sure does fly. We just had her birthday party this past Saturday and she had a GREAT time. I will post a picture of what she received for her birthday, or at least one of the items.

Baby Name Frames

Here are the 2 name frames I made for a friend, Amy. She's sooo cool and fun. I met her last fall that the St. Michael's all day crop. How? I asked of the seats at her table were taken. They weren't and so my upline and AWESOME bud Tracy sat down.
Boy did we have her laughing a lot and almost peeing her pants. She even complimented me by saying how glad she was that we sat at her table. I love making people laugh... though I sometimes think I should get paid more for doing it?! hehehe
Anywho... hope you like them!
I'll be a bit busy this week... tomorrow is Lgirls BIRTHDAY!!! Then I've got my 8 for $10 tuesday night and Lgirl's birthday party on Saturday. Not to mention starting the day off right with a teeth cleaning at the old dentist! woo hoo!
