Happy Thursday!

We are in the middle of a heat wave here this week.  It is t be in the 90s all week! I love summer, but it is now just to hot to be out long at all.  I so need to do a garden update.  I'm so excited to have pumpkins started.  The peas have finished.  We are overrun with radishes and we are reaping the benefits of fresh herbs.

It's taken me all week to recoup from the Indiana trip but it was so worth it.  I had such a great time meeting my crafty friend Beth.  She is such a joy.  While we were at her house I had the opportunity to play with her massive stash of Stampin Up supplies.  They have some lovely dies and embossing folders.  And this is the card I came up with.

Very monochromatic, but I was at a loss as to how else to use this die and stamp set.  

Yesterday I spent the day at my friends Ellen's house and had the opportunity to see the Silhouette in action.  I cut a ton of files to go with my Flourishes sets.  Now I just need to get busy and make something with them.  Stay tuned for those projects.  

It's been a busy, but very fun few weeks for me:)  Thanks for taking the time to stop in and say Hi! and have a fabulous weekend!  

And say Happy Birthday to my Mom and Amber if you see them!  


  1. I like your monochromatic car, and how you used the dies. Sounds like you had fun!

  2. So glad that you had fun and had the opportunity to play with the SU stamps and the Silhouette because you created a fabulous card. Love the layout and the mono colors with the splash of black and white.

  3. Such a pretty card and nice to read of your fun times! I have been considering the silhouette...what did you think of it?

  4. Your card turned out beautiful! How fun to play with different supplies:-) Sounds like you had a great time.

  5. I would say you used it perfectly ~
