Sherry (BadSherry), Jenn (jbalcer) and I trekked up I-35 to Salado on Saturday and met up with……………..

Sharon (StamperSharon), Bev (TexasGrammy) AND Anna (SweetMissDaisy)!!!

What a wonderful bunch of girls! I have met both Bev and Sharon before so I knew I could expect some belly laughs and lots of hugs. I was thrilled to finally get to meet Anna who is my coloring idol! She is so sweet and pretty (quit ditching the photos girlie – you’re gorgeous!). We had so much fun shopping at Stamp Salado. Then we had a yummy lunch with more laughs.

Thanks so much for the great day ladies!!!

Here’s a picture (taken by Miss Anna Wight):

What a fun day!

Today was a great day! Carolyn King (Cammie) and Sharon Coleman (Stampscout) came over to play with Sherry and I. Lots of laughs and stamping. I knew Sherry and Sharon would be buds and I’m so glad they had a chance to meet.

We had all kinds of inks, Prismacolor pencils, and the Copics out and working in between a whole lot of giggling!

Here’s a picture of the 4 of us!


Here’s one of the cards I made today. I used the new DaisyD’s Rub-on stitch tape and Basic Grey (yummy!) Figgy Pudding paper that I got from Lindsey at Jacksonbelle Embellishments. Fun stuff!

Cincy and this week’s JBWW Challenge

Were back from the Pampered Stampers retreat in Cincy!!! We had so much fun! It was such a great bunch of girls. Dang, the girls just knock my socks off with the beautiful swap cards & 3-D items. Fabulous!

Here’s a couple pictures we took (well, Kittie took them and I stole them from her camera 🙂 ).

The first picture is Sherry, me & Dawn (DawnL) with a wonderful cake that Amber (Bambi64) made for us. All our birthday’s are in October. Is she the sweetest?


The next picture is Jen  and Kittie (Kittie747). They are just so darn cute!


On to todays JBWW Challenge!!!

Sherry Cheever is our host today. You can check out her blog for more Cincy pictures!

Here’s your challenge ……………alter and little notebook, journal or whatever you have on hand. Make it simple or fancy, what ever strikes your fancy!

Here’s mine!

This was my 3-D Swap for the Cincy gathering. It started out as a square notebook from Target. I covered the front and back with patterned paper (using Tacky Tape) then sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa. I stamped the Jolie’s Fleurs flowers on the front and back randomly. I then stamped one flower on each page in the notebook. I attached the ribbon to the front using Tacky Tape. I left enough hanging loose on the inside to use as a bookmark. The flower on the front was colored with Copic Markers, cut out and then attached to the front with Foam tape. Easy project!
