Anyone want some ice cream?

 

 

 

My friend and downline Sandy  Alexander made this adorable card for our glitterchicks meeting this month and everyone loved it. She used the Sweet Scoops set from the summer mini and the bowl is made from the wide oval punch. Sandy found the ice cream sticks at a hobby store I think.

My Mojo didn’t get here til Friday!


It has been one of those crazy weeks again and I have been so busy. I finally had time to sit down and stamp for a few minutes yesterday. I didn't have time to do the mojo sketch last week so I figured I better try and get it done this week. I am not really loving my card but I was too tired to start over so here is what you get.

 

 


I used the Bride designer paper and brayered over it in bashful blue. Then I made one of the cool ribbon roses that my friend Deb Valder showed me how to do. They are pretty easy. This is not bad for my first try I think.  I used that for the center of my pretties flower.

Mostly Vintage Stencil

 

 

Here is a card I did for my downline swap. I used the new Mostly Vintage stencil from the Summer mini and sponged it with Taken with Teal. Then I stamped the Elements of Style swirls all around it. I distressed the paper a bit by ripping and sponging.

Lindsey’s Zipline Adventure!


Many of you know that I took my daughter Lindsey with me on the Stampin Up Caribbean cruise this year instead of my husband. He is the adventurous one so when Lindsey wanted to go zip lining in St. Lucia,  I was kind of in a panic because I am terrified of heights. So, luckily my wonderful friend Melissa and her husband David adopted Lindsey for the day and took her zipping through the rainforest. Here are a few pics of their adventure. This is them getting all prepped and ready to go.

 

 

 

 

 

Here is Lindsey on one of her zips. She is coming in for a landing! She was a little scared at first but then once she did it, she was ok and had a great time.

 


 

 

 

 

 

The guides were very helpful at making sure everything was safe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She made it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the adventure was over, they stopped to take some pictures of the incredible trees and landscaping. What a wonderful treat for Lindsey especially since her friends were back at school doing work while she was flying through the forest on the tropical island of St. Lucia. I am sure she will never forget  that day. Thanks to Melissa and David for taking good care of her!

Watercolor Trio with Texture

This is a card I did as a make and take at my downline meeting last week. I used the Watercolor Trio set from the Stampin Up summer mini and the square lattice embossing folder also from the summer mini. I used old olive and bermuda bay for this card. I am so bummed that bermuda bay is leaving soon. It is one of my favorite colors.

Tea Anyone?

This cute card was made by my good friend Michelle Burkett. SHe used the Watercolor Trio set for the background images and the sentiment is from Favorite Thoughts. Both of these sets are in the Stampin Up summer mini. In case you can't see the words clearly, it says "A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water."
