I am in LOVE with the Fabulous Flowers SU! set! It has been around awhile, but I just ordered it and it came in the mail yesterday. I got a chance to play around a bit with it today. Here are some cards I made with the set:

Hi! I spent tonight with my good friend Sara, to have an early mini birthday celebration for me! My actual birthday is on Thursday, but I am having all 4 of my wisdom teeth taken out on that day, and tomorrow night I am celebrating early with my family, so tonight was our night! I haven't seen Sara in awhile (shocking, I know!) so it was nice to catch up. I introduced her to Wii Fit, I think she was a bit scared of it to be honest!

Summer has finally arrived! And with it comes thunderstorms and rain! We've had some crummy weather here the past couple of days, and I hope it clears up soon! Last Friday was the last day of school, and I made a clean break (although there were some tears), in fact I even went on an interview for a new job this morning. I should hear by the end of the week what will be happening in this new school. Cross your fingers for me!

Well, not much stamping has been happening here this week. I've been trying to get things together as I continue another new job search and end the current school year. I do have a card I made a few weeks ago for my friend Alyssa. She needed some baby cards, and this was the baby boy card I made her. I used the stamp set "Big on Spring" from the current SU! mini catalog. I colored the image in with Stampin' Up markers, and replaced the heart on the onesie with a star. The stars are punched out using the big and small SU! star punches.

Done! That's how I am feeling about a few things right now. But, let's keep this to stamping! Here is a card I made tonight using the BSC33 on Splitcoast. I LOVE these sketches, Jamie always does such a great job, and it gives me a good excuse to use a bella. I used Veggiebella for this card, and her sentiment "you grow girl". I actually flipped the sketch on it's side to allow enough room for veggiebella to fit. Her overalls are paper pieced with the BoBunny designer paper. I paper pierced around the edges of the main image. The ribbon is some that Sara had given me for my bday a few years ago. The color matched perfectly!

Hope every Dad had a great day! Mine has actually been away scuba diving in Florida for the week, but comes home tonight, so it'll be a late and short celebration for him! I was able to get some stamping in tonight, and participated in 2 challenges: a MFT and Beate's weekend challenge.

Today when I got home, a nice surprise was waiting for me...the new My Favorite Things stamps I ordered! I got the new My Favorite Things presents stamps by Annie Lapoint, as well as the Cupcake and ice cream set. I didn't get a chance to play with them tonight, but hopefully I will over the weekend!

Whew! What a day! 100 degree temperatures all day, plus when I got home, the power was out! We just got it back on about an hour ago, and boy was I excited. I ran around the house putting all of the air conditioners on. Tomorrow is supposed to be even worse, in fact my school is having an early dismissal in preparation for the intense temperatures! I feel so bad for the kids, it was like a sauna all day in our classroom with no relief at all. I keep telling myself, one more day until the heatwave breaks a little...

Woohoo! I got an early birthday present today from my older brother. Over Memorial Day weekend, he brought over the Wii Fit for us to play and I fell in love! I mentioned how much I liked it and he said if he saw it anywhere (it is HIGH demand!) he'd pick it up for me for my birthday. Well, today was the day, and I came home to find it on the kitchen table! I really love it for the yoga and the fitness games. I'm really enjoying it!

Wow, I feel like I hardly use my SU! stamps anymore. I always seem to reach for Bellas or MFT, that I fear my SU! stamps are being neglected. Tonight, I reached for "Always" to make some Anniversary cards for a friend who requested a few. I chose brown and pink for the color scheme because it seems lovey dovey! I colored the heart in with my markers, and then "huffed" on the stamp to reactivate the color, and stamped as normal. I love how you can get different colors on one stamp with this technique!

Wow, it's Sunday night already! That means...another week is about to begin. It'll be a busy one for me, I have a Retirement party on Wed. night, and then a big book club end of the year bash on Thurs. night.
