I have been quiet over the weekend, because we went out of town. My DH had a gig in Minnesota on Friday night and another gig in Okoboji on Saturday night. We decided to make it into a little vacation, so the boys and I went with him.
I made a great purchase on our last CTMH monthly club order. I purchased two My Original Card Kits. The first one is a birthday card kit and the second one keeps me going on my Christmas cards for the year. I put these kits together on the drive up to Minnesota. The trip didn't seem four hours to me, because I was busy creating. All I needed was a flat surface, my glue gun, scissors and pop dots. The only item I forgot was my static pillow I use for embossing. I rub this on the back of the My Stickease images when I want to add pop dots. I had to improvise, so I put them on my jean shorts to remove the adhesive. Then I started putting them on the cloth seats and door. Whatever works!
Now, I have some cute birthday cards and I didn't feel like I was just sitting in the car wasting time. I always try to create when we we take a long drive. These kits contain twelves cards and envelopes. When I was done, I had three each of the four designs. YAY! Of course, at home it wouldn't take three hours to put them together.
This kit is called "I's Your Day" (item # x8622, $12.95).
This kit is called Merry & Bright (item # x8620, $12.95)
I just checked the challenge this week for Christmas Stampin' All Year Long and we get to make whatever type of Christmas card we want. SWEET! I got this week's challenge done. Maria's card has an elf on it. You would think I planned that. Of course, her card is gorgeous! Check it out!
Here are my boys tubing for the first time evah!

Talk about a nervous mom! I was so nervous that if Tanner fell off he would swallow a ton of lake water and not realize we are coming back to get him. They both did wonderful and loved it! I kept gripping my DH's arm while they were being pulled behind the boat. Of course, I thought they were going fast. When we stopped the boat, which seemed forever too me, I asked Tanner if he was done and he smiled and said, "No, Mom". Well, I told him I was done for him and we pulled him into the boat. He thinks he is one of the BIG boys. Whew! I will be more relaxed the next time...I think! LOL!
If you haven't taken time to vote on the two polls. Check out the top of the sidebar. I am glad I am not alone on the 500+ stamp sets. Thanks, Stampers!
