Forget Me Nots

I have missed blogging, but as we are back to work getting ready for the new school year, I find that there are never enough hours in the day. I am glad to be getting ready, but am trying to keep my own family happy as well. The kids are excited to start school again next week! Where did summer go???

This was a card I made playing around with the Bodacious Boquet, and the Embrace Life set. I thought it was fitting since our Alaska State flower is the Forget-Me-Not, and three of my dear friends moved from the Slope this Summer. I know we'll stay good friends, but I miss them, maybe they'll even read this, and know I am thinking about them as they start new chapters in their lives. We all need to Embrace Life when good things come!

Quick Birthday card

This was a really quick birthday card, for a friend of my son's, who is a girl, but doesn't like much "girly" stuff. I think this worked out okay. It was a good excuse to check out my new In Colors, while I was still trying to make heads or tails of my house (haven't been home long from traveling for almost two months!). I used the SU set "It's Your Birthday", don't know what I would do without having to make birthday cards! : ) Every year I say, "I am going to make up some cards ahead of time for those last minute birthdays that pop up." Every year I do, but it seems more crop up than the year before. Guess that's a good excuse to stamp a little bit more!

What do you think?

Back Home

We are back home from a much needed and deserved trip! Time to get back to normal, and good to be back. I jumped back in the first three days to do a Girl Scout day camp when I came in. It was a lot of fun, but I didn't get to rest from the three days of flying it took to get back here in Alaska.

Apparently, while I was gone Stampin' Up added lots of wonderful things! Today in the middle of my DD having a ear ache, mountians of laundry, and runs to the post office, the Fed-Ex man visited me with goodies. I can't wait to get started! I love the new In-Colors, and can't wait until my Big Shot comes in. Stampin' Up has new Big Shot dies made specifically for Stampin' Up. I am excited about this addition to Stampin' Up's line of products.
