Perfect Day

The Avocado Arts designers are sneaking the August stamp set today.  I seriously cannot believe my children go back to school in 2 weeks!  I am so not ready for that yet.  Head on over to the other ladies blogs today, to see what they worked up for you.

Materials Used:
Avocado Arts stamps
Spellbinders die templates
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L adhesive (photo corner, Dodz & foam squares)
Twinery Bakers twine
Clear Snap ink
Jillibean Soup pattern paper
kraft cardstock


I was playing around with the July stamp set from Avocado Arts, as well as one of their add on sets, and made this fun banner card.  There are so many things to "celebrate" in my life right now.  My husband just got home a few days ago from a deployment, our house we are having built is almost completed, my kids are happy, my family is together again.  Also for fun, I am leaving for Chicago to attend summer CHA.  
Anyhow, back to the card.  Celebrate can mean many different things.  I could give this away for so many different occasions and I love that.
To see more great projects using the July set as well as the upcoming August set, take a little hop and visit the rest of the designers.

I Do!

As you know, one of my dear friends is one of the newest illustrators for GinaK.  Today, I get to be a part of the blog hop showcasing this beautiful set.  From the picture you can see it is a fun, fresh take on  a Wedding set, not to mention the freaking fabulous octagon background builder in it (oh em it)!  
Did you know, GinaK is now making clear and rubber stamps?!?!  Yes she is!!  So, if you are a clear stamp kinda stamper, there is clear for you, and if you are the kind of stamper who loves her red rubber, then the precut red rubber set is still available!  I love choices :)  Here are the links for the I Do set, in clear and rubber.
Make sure you visit each designer.  Winners will be picked randomly from the comments left on the blogs.  The winners will receive a grab bag of red rubber images...awesome!

Sew Nice

I seriously cannot believe it is July 1st!?!  So, so, so crazy for many reasons.  Our house we are building is almost finished, and my husband will be home from this deployment next week!  I have so many "thank you" notes to give, to everyone who has listened to me vent on the phone, asked me out to lunch, or just sent a nice email.  Days can get really tough when your spouse is deployed, so I am very thankful for those who lift me up when I need it.
I used the April stamp set from Avocado Arts, for this card.  Two more designers have been added to the Design Team, Vera Yates & Cristal Hobbs.  Make sure you give them a nice welcome today.  Head on over to the Designers blogs to see what they are up to today.
