Beach Day

So this morning my husband and I got up and took our bikes down to the beach and rode the boardwalk at 7 am. It was a beautiful morning, a cool breeze, the sun on the horizon coming up, and pretty much an empty beach. I got a chance to try out my new road bike that my son, Matt, fixed me up with. It's a Raleigh women's road bike and it rides like a dream. Very smooth!!! Good for me to get some exercise and work the old knees. Then we stopped and had breakfast at Doc Taylor's. It's an old house that serves breakfast and lunch. They serve a mean Bloody Mary! After breakfast we rode for a while longer and then headed home. By the time we left the beach, it was packed with people for the Sand Soccer Tournament.

So I made these two cards a while ago using the Summer Splash set out of the Summer Mini, just messing around and thought I would share them today. Not exactly what I had in mind but a quick card to make if you are in a hurry.
I have two classes coming up this next two weeks and so I am headed up to the stamp room to put some of the cards together. I hope you have a great Sunday.

Dad's Day Will Be Here Soon

I was on a roll the other day with the Blueberry Crisp DSP and so here is another piece with Cherry Cobbler using the "Sailing Away" stamp from the Summer Mini and some of the new twine sold there as well.

I have been so busy trying to finish up another school year. Packing away supplies in the clinic this year because they are going to paint and so everything that I usually leave out needs to be packed. UGH is all I can say. Oh well. Only eight more days!

It's June First!

It's the first of many things today, including the first day of the month, my sister's birthday, and the first day to pre-order some of the new products from the new 2011-2012 Stampin Up Idea Book and Catalog! Woo Hoo!!! I am so excited and can't wait to get started making some new projects to share with you. In the mean time, I made a few cards the other day with the "Sail Away" stamp that is in the Summer Mini. This stamp is so much fun to use. It's a great stamp to use to demo with your customers as well. I combined the image with some Newsprint DSP and Not Quite Navy card stock. I used Not Quite Navy brads and a blender pen to highlight with Not Quite Navy ink to complete this card.

Knowing that we will have new DSP in the new catalog, I want to use as much of the DSP that I have left as possible. Check out "Blueberry Crisp" DSP for these cards. It worked perfectly for me. I made a few more but will save them for another day. So being a demo can give you lots of advantages and one of them is being able to see the new catalog before anyone else, get great discounts on stamps and incentives for all your hard work. I would love for you to experience all these wonderful perks as well so if you are interested in becoming a demonstrator email me! I'd love to talk to you. And if you are interested in any of these products then just click on the daisy to your right and it will take you to my SU website where you can order whatever you like!!!
