This past week I've been creating a couple of gifts for the houseguests I will be rooming with at convention in Salt Lake City. I wanted to post one of the cards I made for my team leader, Jennifer. I used our new in-colors and the Razzle Dazzle stamp set. I like this set a lot and I've used it a lot! I put a button in the middle of the grommet, what do you think? Does it work? I hope Jennifer likes the card. I will be posting from will be such fun!

Here is the second card design for our July 25th Stamp a Stack Class. This was created with our new Razzle Dazzle stamp set and our new Razzleberry Lemonade designer series paper. I also used our new incolors Rich Razzlebery and Crushed Curry on the top two cards and Melon Mambo on the one below. Hope to be creating with you soon!

I am still with family in Nashville; I came to visit my aunt and it's been more wonderful than I expected. I made a few cards to post before I left Arizona using the new in-colors; did you hear that this year for the FIRST time Stampin' Up! is offering in-color MARKERS?!! How cool is that?! AND polka dot ribbon in each of the six new in-colors! Here's a card in the Rich Razzleberry...

On July 27th I'll host a STAMP A STACK using all of the luscious in-colors!

This week I am in Nashville visiting an Aunt and my brothers and sister and their families. My husband and I decided to drive like we used to back in our 20's and 30's...that was a VERY LONG TIME AGO! In all honesty, it was a nice trip, of course I yak'd like crazy but Juan is used to that and I had him laughing most of the time. And we loved reading the signs; one that stands out was in Texas, it was a billboard of a couple of Highway Patrol Officers and the caption read "Going out tonight? SO ARE WE!" Gotta love that!
It was great arriving in Nashville, it feels like coming "home". I'm not sure why because I haven't really lived here; I was born here but my mother moved us to California when I was 2 and I lived here from '70 to '72 with my husband, but that's it. My mother was born and raised here and her familywas all from here; and currently my brothers and sister live here...not sure why that overwhelming feeling comes over me when I visit. Here's a picture that I tried to take from within the car to show how beautiful Nashville is and this is just a freeway shot! And another picture of my taking a well deserved break on my brother's front porch!
