On My Way to Dallas

I will be in Dallas for the rest of the week. It is where the National Association of Legal Assistants is hosting their conference this year.  This is my first time attending.  I am going with my friend Ann who has been several times.  I am flying out at 6:45 a.m. Tues. 7/26 which just happens to be my 31st wedding anniversary and believe it or not Ann's as well.  I have to get up at 4 a.m.  That is just obscene!  I will be there through Sunday 7/31. I will also celebrate my birthday in Dallas.  We have a free night the 28th which is my birthday so Ann and I will paint the town.  

Hopefully upon my return I will have time to make some more cards to post.  I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Monday, July 11th Workshop

To those followers who are coming to my class
on Monday, 7/11 these are the four cards we
will be doing.

This is a sprig of daisies from Stampin Up.  Someone
was advertising SU stamp sets at work so I bought this one.  Love it!

This is another Stampin Up set.  It is a window and then you stamp what you want in the window.  I thought I would stick with the daisy theme.

Then of course, we have the adorable Mouse House stamps.  I love these stamps.    This is Bring on the Rain.

This one is entitled Spring Blossoms.

It's a Girl Thing

The idea of this card came from some stickers I bought.  I didn't know what I was going to do with them at the time I bought them, but they were cute.  You all know how that goes!  Any way, I was in my favorite scrapbooking store, The Keepsake Element and low and behold there was some designer paper with purses on it.  Well, of course, I had to get it. I looked at the paper and decided that the base of the card was going to be red.  This is what I came up with.

 This is the inside.
