The SCS Summer Fest Gathering was a great time yesterday! I got to see a bunch of fun ladies who I haven't seen in a long time, and I got to make some fun swaps too! The star of the party was probably Pine, aka Heather (Pine Is Here). She's on the Papertrey design team and makes beautiful things with PTI stamps. After looking at some of the cards she brought yesterday, I was inspired to bring some of her ideas home to try on my own. I'll share those later this week, ok? Another famous stamper in attendance was HB (as she's known on SCS). Her real name is Carol. I had not met her previously, so it was fun to get to know her yesterday too. She's got a fab blog called called Happiness Blooms. I've got it on my Google Reader now, so I won't miss another card that she blogs ever again!
Last night Youngest Son and the Hubster went to Elko Speedway to watch some races. That means I was left home alone (remember, Oldest Son is counseling at church camp this week) to have to stamp, oh darn. I hate when that happens, LOL. One of the cards I managed to get done yesterday was a remake of a store-bought card I received from a business colleague a few months ago. I thought it was so cute, and SOOOOOOO easy to recreate. Here's the card I got in the mail....
And here's my version of the card.... it took me a while to get it the way I wanted it, and I did take some liberties with the original design.
We've got another beautiful day on our hands today! We've been sleeping and waking to temps in the 60's--I LOVE THAT!!! By the middle of the day, it's in the 70's. No plans for us today except get some grocery shopping done. It's Eldest Son's birthday tomorrow so I need to figure out what we're getting him for a gift. He's 17, I can hardly believe it. He comes home from camp tomorrow night about 630p, and then we'll take him out for a burger to celebrate!
