Hello Fellow Bloggies!

Well, let me first say Thank you to all of our Design Team Members! Our first 6 month term is over at the end of this month, and I was very fortunate to work with this team. Their designs are an inspiration to all of us, and I can’t thank them enough for all the patience they had to give me for our first DT. So, sincere thanks to all of you!

- Carol

Sue Allen's Card Entry for Class Act! (start the hop here and leave a comment!)

Soooo we've been slacking putting pictures up of the store...but it's to the point now where we're setting up displays! Woo Woo!!!!
Here is a picture of the store in progress! This month is FLYING by with all this happening! Eep!!

Summer Drinks by Sue

I really can't believe we are almost half way through August! Where did the summer go? I haven't even had time to enjoy a cooling drink by the pool. The new designs for August may encourage everyone to stop what they are doing and take a relaxing break. The shape of this stamp and the intricate design needed a simple treatment and was just asking to be put on a step card. The stamp was coloured with OMS and coloured pencils then sponged on the outside with a light blue with a contrasting matt of black. A small touch of glitter makes the glassware sparkle. (if it was only that easy! ) LOL.

Enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful weather when you can.

Time to play catch up

Well, here are updated photos of the new store!!! Things are getting better each and every day!

And some cards from the wonderful Sue!! (sorry I'm late posting them... :()
The new releases for July are the only cool things about this whole month. I love them because there are so many options. The card to-day is a box card. It's handy for holding a gift card..some snaps from a recent occasion.. or a bookmark for summer reading. Double sided paper/cardstock was used and folded into a box. A 'belly band' holds the card together and decorated with punches and layers of cardstock. The images were stamped in black and coloured with prisma pencils and OMS then cut out. The hat was popped on a foam dimensional and a tiny bow tied on the back. The strawberry inside was stamped on red and coloured with ink sponged on with make-up applicators.
