Holy cow! It's been two months since I've had a blog entry! My goodness.... OK I have some to things to share.

First, the bad news... after 10 years of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I have given it up. It just got too hard to keep that going, family, my job and my swaps. I also found where I wasn't enjoying stamping as much, it was a job. I will miss the monthly magazine, the free catalog every year and the 20% discount, but I'll live.

The really bad news... I just had another birthday! Ugh! But I did have a lovely time with my family and I received some wonderful gifts. My sister gave me a Color Me Happy gift pack... I got PaperTrey Ink stuff.... the new Guidelines stamp set, 5 rolls of ribbon, a Pallette ink pad and cardstock in the Lavender Moon color. So beauty-ful!! It came in a purple canvas tool caddy that is lined with black fabric and polka dots (see Jones, it really is a color) and purple rhinestone bling! My children gave me a card that when you open it there is a sound thingy in it and plays Shake Your Groove Thing! How awesome is that!! They also gave me candles. My mother gave me more favorites... a Key Lime Pie and a bottle of Beringers White Zinfandel. Yum!

To explain the yummy card! I received this from my card traders group that I belong to. Isn't it adorable!! I didn't keep a copy of the one I made, but it's the greatest card idea I've ever seen!!

OK, to my faithful readers that have probably been looking and seeing the same card for two months now.... I promise to be better about posting. At least once a week minimum.
