Hello... It's Me Again!

Good morning my Friends! Long time, no see!! I thought that once school was out, I would have more time to stamp and post to my blog. Boy was I mistaken! It's amazing how "life" just seems to roller coaster! It has all been great but just so busy!!! If you had read my last post you would have known that I was cleaning house for my parents' visit. They came and we had a great time! We watched my son practice baseball and watched him try out for a soccer team and we went to the JUCCO world series tournament. And then we would have to take a break to rest from all that! My son was asked to be a part of a competitive baseball team and they had their first tournament this past weekend. Too bad my parents couldn't have stayed that long. It was so much fun!!! The games were played with college rules so the boys had a LOT to learn before the first game. And get this... They only had SIX practices before that first game! We played four games over the weekend before we were beat! I think that is amazing!!! Nick LOVED it! He got to pitch for three innings in a game. He got to play outfield and first base. The boys got to lead off and steal. It was so exciting to watch! Now we get to look forward to more tournaments! Our next one is in a few weeks in Glenwood Springs. I can't wait! In soccer news... Nick made the premier team! That is the top level team and he is really excited about that, too! And this will mean a lot more traveling to Denver to play games. Our family has entered into a whole new world of sports! So, that is a little bit of what I have been doing the last few weeks. Thanks for letting me ramble.

Today's card is made with some new stuff!! My mom was able to peek at the new catalog before they went home. I am not supposed to discuss it so I won't but this card is made with some items that demonstrators got to pre-order. And I just have to tell you that you will be seeing a lot of cards made with these same colors. Sorry but I am in LOVE with Crumb Cake!!!! (also known as Kraft) I am in LOVE with the fact that we now have a stamp pad and marker in this color and I am using it left and right! The sponging on this card was with Crumb Cake. I used a sketch from Create with Connie and Mary. I love sketches! I did change it up a bit but it gave me a starting point. Anyway, I guess I had better stop. Thanks for reading and looking and not giving up on me! I am looking forward to staying inside where it is cool and getting some creativity going! God Bless!

  1. Deb, great to see you back in action .....well, stamping action! Sounds like you've had a lot going on. I can feel your pain!! My oldest (and only) daughter is graduating high school, my middle son is finishing 9th grade and my youngest son is graduating elementary school (5th grade). Makes for some busy Mamas!!! Loved your card! I ordered that set, but it's backordered. I love my other goodies and can't wait to play! Again, great to see you back!!

  2. Glad to see you back!

    Beautiful card. I really would never have been interested in pre-ordering those items, but you made them look FANTASTIC!!!! I'm also excited about the new crumb cake. I hope I get my new stuff and catalogue by Friday (I live in Canada!)

    I love the layout and colors of this card. Really great job!
