I love having the chance

to spend time with people who share the same passion as me. Our local
stamp group was invited to Truro to meet up with the gals from there. We had a great day, wonderful company, awesome food and a lot of giggles.
These are some of the girls trying to catch up on things as we haven't seen each other for quite a while!!!!

This is the card project Barb had ready for us to complete. This is actually Barb's card as I did not get my images colored in!!!!!

I did reach my goal of getting 2 cards made yesterday!!!!! The first is
from Di

I can't say enough about her sketches. I just love doing them each week and look forward to the next one.

I used more of my DCWV Pocket full of Posies Stackmat, Cuttlebug mat, SU corner punch and ribbon from my stash.

This next card is from HOTP Vintage Collection and the stamp is from M's. The sketch came from Laren M.

If you are looking for sketches the best site to
start with is Alison's as
she is always up to date on every one's happenings.

It really was a great day and so much fun to see the girls again. I hope we
behaved ourselves and maybe get invited back again....PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Oh..I changed the template on my Blog as I found the other one too dark. What do you think?? Is this one too bright??

Wednesday, August 15, 2007 been a week

since I last posted. Our dd and her bf are still wisiting with us so I am going to use them as my excuse for not posting more often!!!!!!

These cards are all sketches from other other peoples blogs. If your looking for inspiration just surf some of the links and it's certainly there for you!!

This first one is from Carla and I am so slow at posting that I see she has another sketch challenge up for you to try!!

I used SEI Winnie's Walls pp, DCVP Holly Jolly adhesive ribbon, Bazzill cs, and M's acrylic stamps.

The next one is a sketch from Di Hickman
...hmmmm..I did get this one up before Di posted her new sketch!!

For the pp I used DCWV Pocket full of Posies Stackmat, stamps from M's and SU.

And this last one is from I {heart} 2 Stamp
and with this one I used pp from BG Infuse paper pad, stamps from M's and SU, ribbons and brads from stash.

I haven't checked yet, but hopefully I got it posted before Jen puts up a new sketch.
Ladies, thanks for the inspiration, I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love summer...

I had a great time at the lake this weekend with Jocelyn and Paul. I didn't get there until after supper on Saturday but we stayed until yesterday and enjoyed the sun and fishing.

Jocelyn had agreed to make a guest album for her friend that's getting married
this weekend, so we spent yesterday getting that done. We did 10 pages
and the same amount for the guests to use as signing pages. These are 2
of my favorites.

We tried to keep a simple, elegant feel to the album and there are a couple of pages we are not so sure of, but we have a few days to think about how we want to change them.

My goodness this

week has gone by so fast. It is not often I say that!! Picked our oldest daughter up yesterday morning as she is home to visit for 2 weeks. She hasn't been home since Christmas and it is so nice to have her around again. Her and her dad are headed to the lake this afternoon for a fishing tourney tomorrow. Looks like great weather and hopefully the fish will be biting!!!
Wendy has a great color challenge that I tried this morning. I usually stick to sketches, so it was fun to try something different. She has a great blog with lots of ideas. If you get a chance, check it out.

The challenge was to use orange, blue and white together. You could also use some black. I used my SU Doodle That set, my sentiment is from The Stamp Barn. The orange cs is Bazzill and the blue linen is unknown.
