Hi Ho! Hi Ho! It's off to Salt Lake I Go!

Sorry I have been MIA. It has been just plain crazy around here!!!!!

On Friday night I had downline event. It was so fun to stamp with good friends!! On Saturday morning, I had puppy class. Then I had a birthday party at the city pool for all 3 of the girls. The party went well, but it was MISERABLY HOT!!! After the party, we had some family over to the house. Then on Sunday we had church first thing in the morning and then we went to Phoenix to check out the new Lego store and pick up the pottery we painted last week. When I got home- I thought about stamping. But I didn't want too! Pick your chin up off the floor!!! I was exhausted. So I took a good book to bed instead.

I have spent the day packing the 6 of us to go to Salt Lake!! We are leaving at 4AM! So my DH and I have been rushing around doing laundry, taking cupcakes to the girls' classes, picking up last minute odds and ends, wrapping birthday gifts (their birthdays are actually while we are in Salt Lake so we are bringing the gifts), installing a DVD playing in the SUV, taking dogs to the kennel and packing. Everything is just about loaded!!

Can you believe that I have not stamped since Friday?! But I have a card to show you that I made last week.

The pictures really don't do this one any justice. I stamped the tree from Lovely as Tree in Kiwi Kiss and then I added dazzling diamonds to the branches. I decorated the tree with red gingham ribbon.


Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Warm Words

Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White

Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Real Red

Other: Button, Red Gingham Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds, sponge

I am off to pack the last odds and ends and then get some rest. I am bringing a laptop, but I am not certain if I will have internet access. If I do- I will check in!! Otherwise, I will talk to ya next week!!

This card is just wonderful! I love how the colors jump! What a great creation from a simple stamp image!
Love this!

I love this card. I am wondering how you got the dazzling diamonds to stick. Did you just sprinkle it over the wet ink, or did you use something else.
It's a great card, so simple, yet really beautiful

I really like your card! Very nice.
Good luck with the drive. My family started that exact drive when I was 5 (and I'm the oldest) every summer and many Thanksgiving or Christmases!

Oh I love it!!! That set is one of my faves and now you've just shared another great way to use it. I love the additions of the bows. I hope you have a great trip.
