So I have finally been able to sit down and make a card. I have been soooo busy. We were on vacation in Pennsylvania for 2 weeks. While we were there my husband tripped and fell into the fire so when we got back he had dr appointments every day on top of all of our regular stuff so its been pretty crazy. I have new stamps that I havent even been able to use yet. I have so many ideas its just finding the time, and I really should get some save the date cards done for my cousins wedding seeing as how she wants them in September. So I am making myself do those before I really get any other stamping done. So.. here is the card I made. I really LOVE the colors together. I used Baja Breeze and chocolate Chip. I think if I were to do it again I would add a background or designer paper to the blue scalloped part, otherwise i really like it. I used brown taffeta ribbon and the Dreams DuJour stamp. To make the scallops I used the new fabulous scallop edge punch. I dont know how we survived without it. It is soooo much easier than making scallops with the slit or circle punch! If you dont have one, it is a Must Have. Thanks for stopping by. off to get ready for a Surprise Birthday Party. Have a Great Weekend!

We went on a mini vacation to manchester (to visit my sister in law) and to Maine to check out the beach...which was insanely cold! anyways, when we got back I had surgery on my wrist so I didnt really have any typing abilities and then my computer was getting fixed. So I finally got my computer back this morning and it is all set up, however I dont have time to update you on all of the VERY EXCITING things going on with Stampin Up. However I will let you all know that I am in the process of getting my demonstrator site up and going which you will be able to find at after Im finished gettin it set up, hopefully by tomorrow and one other important thing that will affect all of my Mass customers, its tax free day August 16 and 17th.
