Christmas in July???

Abso-dang-lutely!! Especially when it is made with supplies we received FREE during the last session of Convention!! Huzzah, baby!! We received the new hostess "Peace on Earth" set from the Holiday Mini (which will be available on September 1), some MUI-lovely patterned paper called "Deck the Halls", a jar of silver "Glass Glitter" (which I didn't actually use on this card) and a Cherry Cobbler ink pad! I SOOO love it when someone says "FREE" don't you???

Jan and I stamped our last time together until next year on Monday night (sniff, sniff!). We both decided to play with the faboo stuff!! She even let me borrow her gold Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink! I am SOOO getting this stuff in ALL the colors now! LOVE it!! (Jan and I WILL be doing some "virtual" stamping together ... you will hafta stay tuned for that!)!

Have a wonderful weekend. We are having a family reunion tomorrow. SOOO excited to have my big brother and his wife here with us for the weekend. He bought her a BUNCH of stuff to play with and take home (he actually had ME but it for her, and she was SOOOO surprised when "we" gave it to her after they arrived yesterday. She got a Cricut Expression (with two cartrdiges - Designer's Calendar and Everyday Paper Dolls), and a Gypsy! Cool, eh? We will be playing today, that's for sure!!

Hi Wendy~

What an awesome card! I have been working on my Christmas cards with the SCS Christmas Card Challenge! I wish I could get some of that paper! I've never used "smooch" it a spray? sure know how to pick presents for family! I am so glad that I am your Sister in Sensible Shoes! And, your Sister in Christ. So, no doubt...we are sisters, Sis.

He IS Able,
