The white paper is SU and the rest of it is from
Basic Grey. I still have a hard time coloring in, one of these days I will master it.
I feel like I have been slowing down on my cards.
Maybe because baseball has taken over our lives these days. We have another game tonight and possibly one tomorrrow and then it is all over.
Just in time for football. (yuck)!

I have to make a few wedding cards so this is one I came up with. I don't usually make wedding cards but I think it turned out pretty cute. I used SU paper, certainly celery and apricot appeal. The stamp set is from Close to My Heart and the flower is a Prima. The ribbon is from M and once again I used my cuttlebug folder. Now, on to making more!

The card is lovely lilac and the flowers are from Prima Flowers. I pierced around the edge of the scalloped square and the ribbon came from M.

They played some pretty intense ball and were awesome. What more can a kid ask for- a weekend away at a hotel with all their friends, playing ball and swimming all weekend!
I did manage to find an incredible scrapbook store in town. It was called The Scrapbook Factory. I thought I died and went to heaven. I think it was even better than Archivers. I managed to spend quite a bit in there and I am sure I spent more than I would have because I was in such a good mood after they won the games. (That's a good excuse , isn't it)! Anyway on to Kentucky next weekend and maybe I can find another great store there too! Now I feel like I am on a scapbook store mission (LOL)!

Several of the teacher I work with asked me to make a few cards for guys. This is what I came up with since I don't have too many masculine stamps. The entire card is made from SU products.
We will be going away for the weekend to another baseball tournament and I think I will be missing blogging. Maybe the hotel will have a computer (I'm sure my family will shoot me if I spend any time on the computer). Since school has ended in June I have been on the computer quite a bit. What better to do than blogging and meeting all these wonderful people?! Anyway, this card is made from SU paper and the sparkle stamp is also SU. The sparkley paper once again I found in my scrap drawer.

I made this card for my girlfriend who, after checking out my blog , just had to have some
note cards. I never mind making them for friends or family because I really do enjoy doing it.
I used all SU products for this card.

I wanted to get one in before the 4th festivities begin. We had a houseful last night for E.P.'s parade and fireworks. It was a blast! On to the next party.
This card is one of my favorites because I love the color combinations. The stamp is SU and so is the yellow and pink paper. The plaid paper I found in my scrap drawer along with the ribbon.I sell my cards at school to the other teachers and I know that they will be gobbling this one up.

I will ask a favor of everyone, I just came from a prayer service at church for a former student of ours. She is 18 years old and just diagnosed is Nonhodgekins lymphoma. Please say a prayer for her and her family. We would appreciate it. Have a great holiday!
