So much for blogging more often, eh? Geez! I try ... honestly, I try! *lol*
It's hard to believe it's already more than half way through summer, isn't it? What have we been up to this summer? Well, if you saw my last two posts there has been some travel involved. My youngest went to Phoenix with her BFF and family for 9 days and then, once she was home we packed up and headed to Kelowna for 12 days. It was forced relaxation for this multitasking maniac! I handled it PRETTY well but, not gunna lie, it was JUST long enough to chill a bit but make me want to get home. I'm a Cancer ... and they are renowned for being "homebodies". I missed my dog! (Naturally he was mad at me for leaving him. He greeted everyone except me when we got home (even the cat!) ... until I came back from the grocery store with a cooked chicken. He decided then that he had punished me enough and was ready to forgive me (of course it cost me a few pieces of breast meat!).
We got back July 24th. Craig had the rest of the week off so it was more relaxing "Bertram Style", which means gardening for him, cooking, cleaning, driving the kids around, and crafting for me. The last few days of July were INSANE as the Stampin' Up! promotion with 10 free ink pads included in every starter kit bought drew to a close. My team EXPLODED and we have welcomed 21 ladies to "Tamara's Trail Blazers"!!! I only JUST finished the "welcome" cards and paperwork for is all last night!
Today I'm turning my efforts towards making cards! Alicia and I both have tables at the "Made for Pets" even at the Edmonton Humane Society this coming Sunday. She had about 12 more dog leashes to make and I have a LOT of animal-themed cards to make ... not to mention planning out out booths as far as posters, flyers, layout and so on.
So that's what' I've been up to ... and (as I procrastinate on that) I thought I get caught up on projects old AND new that I had HOPED to share along the way. Alas ....
I won't go into fine detail on how they were made, dimensions etc, but if you have any questions just leave me a message and I'll get back to you.
This first card is quite old! ... and a total case from Ceal Pritchett ... using Petal Palette ...
Thank you for popping in. I'll do my best to post again before too long! I hope you have a super stampy day!
