Back to School :: Thanks to You


I forgot to share this card with you all! I made it for my neighbor to give to her baby's daycare providers. It's not exactly school, but where she goes they think of it as a school! So, I took that seriously!

So, did you enjoy the Papertrey Ink Release Party last night? I got in my order...whew! I now know how to look for the links and work-around heavy site traffic without just pressing refresh! Have you figured that out too? I picked up some cardstock and a few stamps.

I've been working on Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen Design Team work and today is the day for the big reveal! I have some fun projects to share, but first you have to be a fan club member, so click here to join if you're not already a member. If you are, great, hop on over to September's gallery and check out what the Dirty Dozen has been getting dirty with during the past month. Plus, you have got to see how the two new designers are on the team. What are you waiting for...go on over there!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cute card! I successfully stayed far away from the PTI release. I shopped a ton a CK Nashville this past weekend. It was so hard to get caught up in all the PTI gorgeousness.

Such a fun card! Love the sparkle on the red apple, such a great detail. :)

I got my order in, too! LOL, I'm too impatient to wait for the page to fully load, so I just hop around and grab the things I want. :) In and out in under 5 minutes... Woot!
