Where am I?

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been incommunicado; I've been busy with my mom. Some of you know that my "full time" job is taking care of my paralyzed mother. I'm going on 4 years and my back is wearing out! We were back in the hospital due to some bladder issues. Now we're home and hopefully things will clear up! I've been trying to do some late spring cleaning too. Gosh, I'm always amazed at how much stuff I can accumulate!

I've been clearing stuff out to get ready for the NEW Stampin Up year!! The new catalog is filled with great new stamp sets and accessories! I've let some of you know that you can pick up a catalog this weekend; just give me a call first. Well, next week I should be able to start stamping again - yippee! Thanks for visiting and hope to "see" you next week!

Pretty Amazing Note Holder

This gorgeous note holder was designed by my upline, Carol Gilmore, for one of her Stamp Camps I helped with. This project used the stamp set Pretty Amazing (now retired) and you can purchase it from me; see the June 8th blog entry below. This project was from several years ago when Stampin Up sold Purely Pomegranate and Groovy Guava. But I think the current Cherry Cobbler and Peach Parfait would work great! The file folder is made out of Celery Designer Patterned Paper. The humingbird and flower centers were glittered with Fine Cosmo celery glitter.

Thanks for looking and if you buy the Pretty Amazing stamp set from me, I'll send along the instructions for making this project!
