Shaking off the dust

Anyone need a Kleenex? I can't stop sneezing. This place is dusty! Thanks to a couple of lovely friends and a little bit of guilt, I am back. I have been a scrappin' and stampin' fool the last few days. I may even have something for you tomorrow. Yeah, don't bet the farm on it. :-)

So right now is my favorite part of the Stampin' Up! year. It is Sale-A-Bration! Hot deals galore! Who doesn't love FREE? There is so much to choose from this year. There are cute stamp sets, a scrappin kit, some adorable accessories; and then if that doesn't suit your tastes, there are dozens of sets from the main catalog you can choose from. Yippeeee!

This card uses one of the SAB sets. It's called Sweet summer.

This second project, I love. It makes me happy every time I look at it. I better stop before I have to buy all new hats. These pictures are special. This is my beloved grandmother and her family. I used the Nature Walk set and the matching paper along with some of my favorite embellishments. This set has so many possibilities. This project was hard to photograph, but I took a close up of the tag to give you a little feel for the texture. I finally broke out my Distressing kit and used the tea stain on this project. It was a great fit.

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!
