Thank You for the Tea Party

Thank You1

If anyone has noticed, I have pretty much used all but one of the stamps from Tea Party stamp set this week.  Why is that?  Because I want to show you that when you decide to buy a stamp set, you should buy it for its versatility.

When you are choosing which stamp sets appeal to you, always look at how many stamps come with the set.  This way you know you can make up to 4 or 5 cards out of one set.  It's a great way to maximize your hard earned dollar!

If you don't have a catalog and you do not have a current demonstrator, I am more than happy to send you one for free.  Simply fill out a form here.

FMS Final 102-001

My card sketch is brought to you buy Freshly Made Sketches 102.

Thank You2

I chose the Real Red ink and Red Glimmer Paper because it made the vanilla and black colors of the Modern Melody designer series paper card pop with a little bit of color as suggested by a couple of my blog readers. =)

You are the reason I continue this blog.  It's already Friday night here and I'm just now catching up on today's post.  It was a very busy day today and I'm feeling a little tired.  One more day of work and I get Sunday off.

I'll be taking my Physical Fitness Test in two weeks and as always, I'm nervous.  I usually score in the high 90's, but it's been my goal to score 100%, which seems almost impossible (I M Possible… LoL)… but I have to run in 11:22 min to make it happen.  Like my momma tells me… "we shall see said a blind man." =)

As mentioned before, I'm running the Deployed Air Force Marathon 10K.  I refuse to do the full marathon or even the half.  It's against my beliefs… LoL. Humans were NOT born to run more than 6.2 miles at a time.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.  I figure I'd train for both and kill two birds with one stone… not literally… I love birds.  Who came up with that saying anyway!? LoL

Just because you are reading this… you get Stampin' Up!'s Old School September Wallpaper for FREE…… after you click HERE select ADD TO BAG and CHECK OUT.  It's that easy!

Again, happy Friday to you… have a safe and wonderful weekend.  Thank you so much for visiting.

  1. This is such a pretty card, Maggie! I love the pop of red, especially the added bling with the glimmer paper! Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. OHHH!! Love the color pop! It sure makes that neutral shine! I bet it is even more gorgeous in color!!! I never thought to put a tag in a circle – thanks for that idea! BTW, did you ever get my card???

  3. this is what you said: “…and kill two birds with one stone… not literally… I love birds. Who came up with that saying anyway!?” i think it was benjamin franklin. he came up with alot of sayings like that! silly man! leaves us wondering how he came up with them!

  4. beautiful my artist friend!

  5. Pretty, pretty and pretty card. I love how the scallops or medallions run down the sides of each side of the center paper and I love your choice of paper. That red glimmer paper really, really pops doesn’t it!

    Thanks for the free wallpaper – I have my kitty cat for my wallpaper. I love my cat and I love SU; but, my cat wins for today!

    Have BIG fun!
