Ten days ago I tried to download my wonderful tee-shirts and the computer was on strike. So I'm trying again today. Hope this time works out.

Tee Shirt Time

About a million years ago I started this blog so I could share some of my card ideas. But even though I have been making tons of cards I just haven't made anything that I absolutely fell in love with...until now. A couple of weeks ago I was cleaning out some papers and ran across a tee shirt I had drawn way back when I was working at ASU. We were decorating our office for Homecoming and decided we would be the whole Sun Devil football stadium complete with gift shop (therefore the tee shirt). I'm notorious for keeping stuff, and this time I'm sure glad I did. Just look at my tee shirt shop now! And the possibilities are just endless.

Hello again. And look how quickly I'm posting again. : ) Well, at least compared to the last few times. I have been working frantically to get my Easter cards done before I leave for Texas; and I'm trying to help granddaughter Courtney get ready for her first Expo show. She is trying so very hard to build up a SU business. So here are 2 cards I made today and I just love how they came out. Both are made from the Easter Blossoms set. The first one with the cute little Easter eggs is made with Wild Wasabi and some coordinating specialty paper that I don't remember the name of and is probably retired, the coordinating colors are Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight, with Daffodil Delight ribbon.

Card number 2 is made using the "inchies" layout idea. I used white, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery and Tangerine Tango cardstock and ink. I also used Night of Navy ink. The background is from Delicate Dots designer paper. I used Night of Navy around the edges and added a sweet little rhinestone to the middle of each egg. Love the look. Thanks for looking.

Oops! I didn't realize I'd been so busy for 8 months that I couldn't get to my blog. But the figures don't lie do they??? I've traveled and seen things I didn't think I'd ever see, made cards, welcomed a new great-grandson, been in several craft fairs, cooked Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, spent New Year's with wonderful friends, watched my granddaughter in the Junior High School National Rodeo, met new friends, bid a few friends a sad good-bye, read a ton of books, even cleaned house a couple of times : ). So on reflection, I guess I have been busy. Now I'm back to stamping again and I want to share some St. Patricks Day and Easter cards I've made before my granddaughter comes to take them away for a show this weekend. Some are truly SU and some are from other companies but with SU product. But I've had a good time and I hope you enjoy.
