Nice Weekend!

Here's a little card with a whole lot of fun! There are instructions on making this pinwheel too! They are super simple!

I headed up north to my mom and dad's house for a little R&R on was super nice to relax and do some family stuff!!!!
Does anyone know what kind of toad this is? My mom took this gorgeous picture in her flowerbed!!!!

Playing Sheephead is a favorite of my daughter Hailey and my dad is the "MASTER" of the game - we took some time and I lost a little change! Notice Rudy (dog) - my mom and dad spoil him like crazy...he DOES NOT get to sit at the table at my house!!!! But he's totally involved in this card game! I know if he could talk - he'd be revealing my hand to my dad, in exchange for homemade waffles!

Rudy is a big fan of 4-wheeler rides too!

I hope you enjoyed your weekend too! It's time to get all inky - bye for now!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all of my customers for your support - - I just earned the 2010 Stampin' Up! Caribbean Cruise last week!!! :) Yahooo!! I'm so excited!!

As a way to say Thank You, I am excited to share some gifts with you ... so I will be giving away some of my FAVORITE things in the Occasions Mini Catalog:
  • Corduroy Buttons (page 5)
  • Summer Love Rub-Ons (page 7); and
  • Printed Window Sheets (page 10)on May 17th!!!!
To enter my drawing - send an email to - put CRUISE GIVEAWAY in the subject line. You must be one of my SU or Hobby Lobby customers to qualify.

The cruise I just earned will be on the Royal Carribean cruise line - Adventure of the Seas next April... we will be visiting:

  • San Juan, Puerto Rico
  • Barbados
  • St Lucia
  • Antigua
  • St. Maarten
  • Virgin Islands

HOLY COW!!!!! What a line-up - heh??? My daughter, Hailey and her friend have started a "cruise fund" for this trip. Hailey wants to bring her best friend, Nina and they plan on having enough money to do that!

The Stampin' Up! incentive trip is ALWAYS a first class experience. And earning the cruise is a HUGE perk of being a demonstrator. I have been fortunate enough to earn 4 cruises/trips with Stampin' Up! in my 5 years as a demonstrator! I count my blessings every day and Thank God I have this amazingly wonderful job! With the $75 Scrapbooking Starter Kit....this trip can be yours too! I never thought I would be going to all these exotic places....

Thanks again for your support - I couldn't experience any of this without ALL of you!!!!
