Clean & Simple Holiday card and ramblings

Helloooo my friends!!!  WOW...I got all caught up in the hustle and bustle of CHA and my classes at StampAway that I didn't post for soooo long!

I leave tomorrow morning to head down to Cincinnati!!! I can't wait to teach some classes at StampAway and especially to see my Jemmifer and Lila!!!

So many things have been going on at the homefront lately... we've had several Vintage ball games, parades, our old refridgerater gave out.. replaced by a shiny new model.  The fuel pump went out on my car...ughhh not an easy fix for my mechanic, but it's done. phew! On the flip side... I've been watching the Olympics any chance I get.  LOVE them!!!

I have a quick card to share with you that didn't make the cut for my classes.  It uses all NEW Hero Arts Holiday stamps plus the NEW Soft Granite shadow ink (YUM!!!)


It's kinda hard to be thinking winter holidays with all the scorching heat... it's almost a refreshing thought!  I hope you all are having a fabulous Summer!!!

  17. I'm working on Christmas cards NOW! I like to do them in the summer so that I can enjoy the creativity and not be so rushed. Plus, it's nice to think about some snowflakes when it's 100 degrees outside! I love seeing your work, and especially Christmas ideas right now! This is lovely and great inspiration! I especially love that sentiment stamp!
