Thank Ewe

I made this card for a coworker to thank her for her recent kindness. Over the past few weeks she's been cleaning out her storage garage and had so many things she was giving away. I happen to benefit from several of her items and wanted to make a card for her. I saw this card on the Stampin' Up! demo website (another perk of being a demo) and decided to case it. I changed the color from bordering blue to rose red. I thought it made it a little more girlie. You can't really tell from the picture, but the "wool" on the sheep is dazzling diamonds. Love it!
Have a stamptastic day! (I totally stole that from BFF Steph! At least I admitted it!)

Happy Birthday Dad!

Today is my Dad's birthday and I'm a little late posting my Happy Birthday message. Part of the reason was that I wanted to make his birthday card from Bochy and post the picture. Sounds ridiculous, I know, but it is a tradition that I started with the grandparents. As ridiculous as it is they expect a card from their grand-dog and a birthday wouldn't be a birthday with out it. Even funnier is the fact that Bochy signs his cards with a paw print. He's such a good dog! He lets me take his paw and put it in the ink and then "stamp" it on the card. As you can see below he's pretty good at it! So FUNNY!

So even though I'm a little late in wishing my Dad a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY I wanted to share our little birthday tradition. I keep this retired stamp set (Ruff Day) specifically for "Bochy's cards". Oh the things us crazy pet parents do!

Season of Friendship

I made this card the other day with the new stamp set from the holiday mini. I was trying to stick to a fall theme and came up with this. I really love this set and am thinking about doing a frame with all the different seasons.
Hmmm maybe that will be my next project....oh wait my project list is a mile long (smile). I'll get around to it sooner than later I hope! Hope everyone has a great day! Happy Stamping!

It's Official!

Steph's a DEMO! We were actually talking about the first time I was introduced to Stamping. It was about 4 years ago and Steph was the one who introduced me! Many stamps later its her turn to be a part of the Stampin' Up! family. She was so excited to sign up online and take advantage of the special SU! was having. Once she clicked the submit button (see below) she was so happy! I was too! Watch out world...we're stamping!

Sailing on the bay!

Last Friday Daniel and I went sailing with my coworker Jenny and her husband. They had the bottom of their new boat refinished and were sailing it from Shelter Island to the Chula Vista Yacht club. They were kind enough to invite us along and show us new sea going people how sailing works. We had such a fun time. It was so relaxing I forgot how nervous I was about the whole 'on a boat' thing. We enjoyed ourselves so much we might have to do it again! This picture of the Coronado bay bridge was taken at about 5:30 pm. We realized after the fact that we forgot to take a picture of ourselves actually on the boat! Duh!
