Flower Smooch Card

Another fun card using the Smooch Designs which will be available on June 1st when the new catalog comes alive!!! I used Daffodil Delight, Real Red and Tempting Turquoise cs along with some Smooch DSP! How fun!!!
I spent all day yesterday preparing for my May and June clubs! Wowser, does it ever take a long time to create cards and cut the paper. You would think I would be getting faster instead of slower. Today after church I planted the garden. It was my husbands idea to get some tomato plants, etc so we did that and came home and planted. I saw so many people I knew at the garden shop so was a fun trip!!! We also ran into my sister and her husband from Colorado as they made a stop and we were just coming out of the cafe for lunch so that was a surprise!
If interested in joining Stampin' Up! just let me know as it only costs $99 and you can choose $125 of anything of your choice in the catalog--like the Big Shot, MDS, downloads, etc! Then you can join our fun team. You can join for a business or just for your own pleasure and stay as long as you would like but of course I am sure you would stay after you see how much fun we have!!! There is still time to sign up for convention and join us on a trip of laughter and enjoyment!
I also have a couple openings in my clubs which meet on the first Monday of the month at 10 am, the first Tuesday of the month at 4:30 pm and the 4th Wednesday of the month at 6 pm. We make 3 projects and have a great social time!. Email me if you are interested in joining or want any details.

This is the one of the newest editions to our place in April. This is Joe, a Border Collie  that has added a lot of conversation pieces to our day. He loves to ride in the Ranger when we check mares, cows or fix fence. He is dragging everything out of the garage and onto the lawn. What a fun puppy!!!!

Folded Card

This is a fun fold card that I cased from Patty Bennetts blog and we made it at our clubs. You start with a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock and score vertically and horizontally in half. Then score at 4 1/2 inches with the new diagonal plate on the top right and turn paper and score again at top right. Turn paper over and fold paper up and then over > Decorate as you please!!
Wind, wind! That is what we had all day today so I got my books all caught up again! Yeah!

Melvin & Mothers Day Card

 This is a picture of "Melvin". He had a rough start but is doing well and home now from the clinic.
 Melvin is getting more active as now chasing a bucket around the pasture with his mom "Rita". The three colts are so much fun to watch as they play and explore!

 I made a Mother's Day Card with some of the new products that will be coming out in June in the new catalog. Can you see some of the new products? I used the new In Colors- Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple and also the new Gumball Green Ribbon and the Floral District DSP! What fun this card was!! The new catalog is out and so many new ideas! Stampin' Up! is incredible!! I have been struggling some with my blog as there have been some changes and also added my pictures to Picasa. I love the program but it has been a struggle to get my pictures posted. I am starting to get it each time! Wow, life has so many changes!!
Had a great downline meeting on Thursday but never got pictures of the cards! Carol was so excited as she sent in her first order of MDS and got her cards back in a short time! They turned out so nice!!! How exciting to have her first project turn out like she wanted it! We laughed so hard at the meeting my gut hurt! I havent laughed that hard in a long time and it was so great to be able to laugh again!!!  Have a great day!

Sympathy Card

We made this sympathy card in my Stamp A Stack Sympathy class! Just love this stamp set as it makes such nice sympathy cards. Tomorrow I will try and put on the blog some pictures of our little colts. They have been so much fun but exhausting for waiting for them to arrive. I am not patient on mare watch anymore! We got all of our branding done and cows to summer pasture so that will help the workload a lot. I have received some new goodies for the new catalog and today my new catalog should arrive! Can't wait to see it in the hardcover as have seen it online and of course it is beautiful again!!!!
Have a great day!

We made this scrapbook page in club this month by using Crumb Cake 12 x 12 card stock and different shapes and sizes of Brights Collection (#117155) Designer Series Paper. We also added the pennant punch (122361) in Tangerine Tango and Whisper White card stock. The letters smile were added to the pennants.This is a great generic page as you could make it into a birthday, child's, outdoor, etc page. It is also a great way to use your scraps of DSP as you could make the sections smaller or bigger. Have a great day!
