Whoa, Cowboy!!

That's kinda how I feel ... my whole life since the middle of July has been one fast and furious horse ride - at break-neck speed!! I have been mostly absent the past several days because of two HUGE projects I was working on ... the craziest of which was a video/slide show of our recent pioneer handcart trek. I finally finished rendering and previewing it last night at 5:06 p.m. (only had to be down to the church to set it up at 5:30!)!! After a huge formatting error that made me have to start over last week AND the crash of my external hard drive yesterday morning at about 5:30 a.m. I FINALLY got 'er done!!!

Sooooo, I feel like I will get to spend a little more time stamping and playing pretty quick here!! HOORAY!!! Time for "happy dancin'" that's for SURE!! Smiley from millan.net

On to today's creation ... I made this for sketch challenge #300 over on SCS ... can't believe there have been 300 already!! They weren't even up to 100 when I joined Splitcoast way back in the day ...

I think Day of Gratitude is my new favorite stamp set ... and Cookie Crumb my new favorite color (okay, OKAY ... I KNOW it's called Crumb Cake, I just can never remember THAT either ... maybe I should use it with some of my Groovy Grape??)!

Stamps: Day of Gratitude, Fundamental Phrases
Paper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla
Ink: Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Corner Rounder Punch, Decorator Label Punch, Build a Brad, 1/2" and 3/4" Circle Punches, Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Pearl Stickers, Dimensionals

I'm loving this stampset too. The East Coast Demonstrators are getting this set at Regional (Oct. 2!) Woohoo... I wasn't sure at first about it - but have seen so many beautiful things done with it that I can't wait. I bought extra cardstock and dsp to have ready to go! Thanks for your beautiful work and sharing your talent with us.

Hi WEndy~

SOOOoo glad you are done with that pioneer tape! I really want to see it! Did everyone wear pioneer clothing?

This card is wonderful. I love the simplicity and the stamp that you used. GORGEOUS and versatile!

You really know how to put a card together, GF!

Great card! Glad you were able to get your Trek movie done. I'm married to a great computer guy who owns a Mac store in downtown SL if you have troubles like that again! ;)
