Bella at 6 months - What a Blessing!!!!!

It is so hard to believe that our Isabella is 6 months old! She is happy, healthy and a sweet little baby. I am loving every minute of being a grandmother (Mimi) and Bob is a little silly over being “Poppy.” Who knew what an exciting adventure this would be? Here’s a few photos of Isabella at 6 months:

We are on the road to Franklin today to spend a couple of days- then on Saturday we will be bringing the little precious back home with us for a few days. I can’t wait to get her all to myself. Just left Leiper's Fork and couldn't resist snapping this quick photo. All we need is Andy and Barney along with Bo and Luke. I just love Williamson County, Tennessee.

'Til next time....Blessings.

Hello Doilies Sneak Peak

I am still here waiting, waiting and waiting for Mr. Brown (UPS) to arrive with my demonstrator copy of the new Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog that goes live to customers on July 1.  In addition to the catalog, I will be getting the new In Colors and a couple of new stamp sets with this ship, so I decided to bide my time by getting a card ready to go with items from the new catalog.

So, in just a little while, I will be posting my first card using brand new items- it is an absolute case of a card on the cover of our demonstrator monthly magazine.

And, here it is!!!  Thank you Mr. Brown ….

Delicate Doilies - Stampin Success case

I used the current Curly Cute set and the new Delicate Doilies Set, along with brand new In Color Wisteria Wonder Textured Card Stock which looks great with the Pumpkin Pie, Pretty In Pink and Whisper White papers.  Then, as the terrific focal point, a Melon Mambo doily die cut from the to die for Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Add a couple of rhinestones (oops! forgot those before I photographed)  and a little white Baker’s Twine and you have a gorgeous card- suitable for most any occasion.

Scripture Stampers–Something Old and Something New

Last night was our May stamp club meeting (I had to delay one week so we could visit our sweet Isabella) and the Scripture Stampers were in full force.  We made three cute projects and I loved each one.  Linda was our hostess and she chose Colossians 4:2 – the definitive verse about prayer.  I was not surprised because Linda is a dedicated prayer warrior…you absolutely want her on your team!  The scripture card I designed that will go into our sweet little scripture box used our theme designer paper, Springtime Vintage (old) along with Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, the Top Note die and Framed Tulips embossing folder.  We all love projects made with the Big Shot. 

I always try to make a little treat for the members each month, but yesterday I was stumped on ideas and could not decide what to do.  Then I had a brainstorm and made a quick trip to Dollar General and bought a bunch of 3.5 X 5 inch acrylic frames and got to work.  I knew I wanted to use the brand spankin’ new Flower Fest set from the Summer Mini and the new embossing powder on a project, so I got busy embossing and punching and cutting.  I didn’t get everything done before the gals arrived, so assembling the elements became our first project.  The sentiments are from two sets that are on the Last Chance list (tear) – Sense of Time and Simple Friendship.  Although they will be gone, they will not be forgotten.  The final project used all current products, including the fabulous Elegant Bouquet embossing folder and had a little twist.  After the image was stamped, we sprayed it with spray adhesive, covered with a used dryer sheet, then covered with Dazzling Diamonds (gorgeous glitter), cut the dryer sheet to size and popped up on our card.  Pretty, pretty.  Who knew?

Take a look-see- and as always, you can shop Stampin’ Up! 24/7 on my website here:

I am sitting here waiting not so patiently for Mr. Brown (UPS) to roll up with my expedited Stampin’ Up! order that will also have my copy of the new Idea Book and Catalog that goes live on July 1.  I’ve been to the door at least ten times…it’s on the truck and out for delivery and I am hoping he gets to us earlier than his usual last delivery of the day.  I know that patience is a virtue- just not today!

Thanks for visiting and before you go say hi! to sweet Isabella- all dressed up this week:
