Getting in the groove again...

Summertime is over. My girls are back in school, and I just had my first Stamp A Stack in a while. Thanks to the really fun gals that attended. . .you are all so special to me! (Even those cranky whiners and you know who you are!) We laughed so much and had a great time. We even produced some fabulous cards and found out how to fix some minor oops and make the card even better. . .

Now this first card uses the new In Color "BAJA BREEZE" and you just know that I was tempted by my compulsions to put these flowers all in a straight line across the white but I thought of my friend Zandra and conceded a little.

The easy part of this one is that the five petal punch perfectly trims these flower images from the Ginormous Flowers stamp set!

And this card uses PINK PIROUETTE and Baroque Burgundy. The wonderful new Silver Hodgepodge kit and round scallop punch add terrific dimension!

Ah, the Crab & Co. stamp set never fails to amuse me, and well of course the googlie eyes do help. KIWI KISS and PACIFIC POINT are the new In Colors here.with the scallop edge punch used on the designer paper below.

The Sock Monkey stamp set. . .very popular with teens. A saying with the white craft pad and the white gel pen on the flowers brighten the RIDING HOOD RED design. Check out all the new designer papers in the catalog. . .I want ALL of them! Oh No!!
And TANGERINE TANGO is the punch of color with Not Quite Navy and Old Olive on this simple card. The huge brad from the Silver Hodgepodge kit really makes this a special card.

Enjoy. And remember, next month is CHRISTMAS CARDS. It's never too early to start!!
