Hey Mr. Postman! FMS186

My daughter needed a card to thank someone on her team at work.  So I gathered up everything I could find that looked "office-like"!  I used the file tab framelits to create the look of file folders, found a clip, gathered twine, stamped the note banner from Tap Tap Tap, made a note book page using the spiral border punch and found a piece of Birthday Bash DSP that looks like books on a shelf.  But none of my thank you sentiments worked for me until...............the mailman came! He delivered this month's Paper Pumpkin kit and there were the words I needed right inside!  Hey thanks a lot Mr. Postman - the phrases worked perfectly!

I am hosting this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Hoping you join our gallery - I love seeing all of your amazing work!

The Stamp Review Crew: Zoo Babies

The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Zoo Babies this week.  I used animals from Zoo Babies but added a sentiment from Hi There - I thought it worked perfectly since the elephant would have to look up to that giraffe to say hello!

And look who I got to say hello to last weekend at my stamp gathering.....the amazing Heidi Baks!  I "met" Heidi online through The Stamp Review Crew and she invited me to that get together.  I am so glad she did!  It was wonderful to meet her in person.  We had a lot of fun that day!

Speaking of Heidi........if you arrived here from Heidi's blog you are right on track!


I know you'll enjoy your next stop at Martha's blog!

I used the sketch from Fab Friday this week for my card design.

Happy For You! PPA248

Last Saturday I attended a gathering of stampers in central NY.  It was terrific meeting so many people that I have "chatted" with on Splitcoast. These gals were wonderful and kept me on track as I participated in a shoebox swap for the first time ever! Yep I was a total rookie! I learned new techniques, tried new products and marveled at the talent in that room as I worked my way through 25 boxes.  I  used one of those techniques on the star today. I swiped three colors of ink across a clear block, spritzed it with water and pressed down a piece of watercolor paper.  After it dried I used a star framelit to cut out the star. Simple and sweet............just like Kerry's sketch today at Pals Paper Arts.....

Such an amazing talented group of ladies!

Leavin' on a Jet Plane.....FMS182

Leavin' on a jet plane sounds pretty good to me right about now.  We are putting in a new kitchen and today was demo what a mess! Half of my house is without power, there are plastic sheets across the kitchen doorways, and the only appliance still running is the refrigerator - and that is out on the back porch.  Trouble is I have to go out the front door and walk around the house to get to it.  Hope the neighbors appreciate the fuzzy slippers and flannel bathrobe!

Here is the demo crew - my husband and son-in law - hard at work. Tomorrow the electricians are husband and son-in-law.  :)

The sky's the limit this week when you create using Rita's fabulous sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!
