How much can you put in a Ranger?

How much more will fit in a Ranger? Kami, 3 dogs, saddles, horse equipment, and a sprayer. Kami put her saddles in the ranger and the dogs finally figured out a way they could get in with her and go for a ride (under the saddles) What a joy!!

Banners at Fair

Banners are in and teachers take note how fast it would be to decorate a bulletin board and your classroom, hallway, etc. Jennifer and Kassandra are putting up some banners at the fair.
 I made
this banner with 1/2 sheets of retired DSP, Serif letters and the clear circle die cut!!
Carol made
this banner with the Halloween Kit in the Holiday mini! How cute is that!
  I made this banner with the snowflake kit for $9.95 in the All Seasons Mini!!
Jenn made this Let's Party Banner above our Birthday cards, etc
 Shirrise made this banner to go with our theme this year of Big Time Fun!
I made
this banner from 6 x 12 DSP and lots of ribbon. It really did spruce our area up! What a great decoration for parties, household, etc. there are a lot of stamping demonstrations going on today and the rest of the week at the Central States Fair! Come out and enjoy the week and learn new techniques!

More August Cards

 Another card we made in Club and this was cased by Jill Olson. I used the Grunge stamp and the Tape It stamp sets.
These cards are a variation of the card from yesterday! Same idea just arranged differently.
We had a  busy day at the fair yesterday-had over 250 entries which was up from LAST YEAR! We did a lot of laughing and enjoyed looking at all the beautiful cards that were entered! A large variety of cards! You can check out these cards at the fair and take your camera along for ideas!!! There will also be a lot of demonstrations in our building over the next week!

wedding card and gift box

This is a gift box that I made for my nephew and his wife for a recent wedding! I just used all different flower punches with Modern Medley DSP (one of my favorites) *126926 . I added some Turquoise and Coral ribbon to the Black Satin Ribbon and then put it on the new box.
added some pearls to an embossing folder! Hope you are having a great day! I am just trying to catch up from the Futurity this last weekend, company from last week and now to get ready for the County Fair. I did get some banners done and will share soon.

Nick & Angies Wedding


Just got back from a wonderful family wedding of my nephew, Nick, and his wife Angie. Had a great time! The reception and rehersal dinner was held on the family farm in Iowa. This was a wagon that you saw when you entered their place!
 My sister made cookies
and brownies and we put these together for the out of town guests! So cute!

The barn was all decorated with lights, a dance floor and inside was a real kitchen where we served all the food.

Nick & Angie after the wedding!

Sherry and Sandy made many pies and desserts and I made the MDS tags for them! Turned out nice!!! Had a great weekend with all the change of plans and the crazy airlines!! Now I know why I don't fly much!! Just got home in time to have 2 couples from Pinedale WY to stay with us for the week of the Sturgis Bike Rally.
