I know I've been missing in action, seems I can't get caught up!

I have been to a FUN retreat with many of my best friends, I just wish all of them could have been there this year! It was last Thursday thru Sunday. Mine started a couple of days early because of travel time, but, I got to stay with Tex and I got meet Jessica Witty, Tex's daughter and Sharon Harnist, what a surprise that was! Sharon and I joined the DD together at the same time on SCS.

Then we went to stay with Zappy at the crack house and my Joyful one was with us too, what an amazing time!

When Pine posted the list of those of us going she put a winking smiley face in instead of my name. I was the secret winker. It was so much fun watching the girls guess who the winker was, most of them were really surprised! We all had a blast doing the classes, stamping, laughing, eating and crying. There are not words to express how I feel about this group of talented women, we all truly care for each other and we always will!

Thank you Piney for putting the retreat together and thanks to HB and Maria too for the yummy food! Oh, Stevie and Suze thank you too!

I miss y'all so much!

See ya tamarrah Lana, after I get my worshing done ;)

Big Bold Birthday in polkadots

This is the new Big Bold Birthday set by Stampin' Up! I love the big cupcake image. The circle tag is a new set too, Think Happy Thoughts, it's a level 1 hostess set. Oh, and the paper is new, it's the Designer Series Paper - Cerise, all red and vanilla designs.

I stamped the vanilla card base with the SU! Canvas stamp and Real Red classic ink. Then I stamped the little flower from Big Bold Birthday over that. I stamped the cupcake bottom on vanilla card stock, then I stamped icing on the back side of the patterned paper, cut it out and adhered it to the cupcake. I made some lines around the image with my Real Red marker. I snipped off a corner of a scalloped punched square, added red Stickles and adhered it to the corner. The side scallop was made with my corner punch with the guide removed. I stamped the circle tag with Think Happy Thoughts on vanilla, adhered it to a Real Red punched circle and added some red Stickles around the edge. There is a vanilla button in the center with a sliver of RR card stock through the button holes. I added the red and white polkadot ribbon from StarLitStudio and popped up the tag with Dimensionals.

I hope y'all have a super Sunday!
As for me, I'll be staying in the house most of the day, baby, IT'S HOT outside! It's supposed be around 103 again today, and no rain, we are so dry around here, ugh.

ATC clock

I got the clock at Target in the $1 spot, it was a $2.50 item. I thought I would alter it and use it in my stamp room for cards. I decided full size cards were to big and the ATC's would be perfect! I used my Creative Memories cutting system to cut the cardstock for the clock face. I stamped it, and then I punched a circle from scrap cardstock to fit around the clock center and used it as a template, I traced it on the flower center. Then, I cut a slit from the edge of the stamped clock face to the traced circle and cut it out. I slipped the stamped piece on the clock and adhered it with E6000. I adhered the pink crystals and that was it!

Supplies: SU! Stamps - Polka-Dot Posies, little flower from Big Bold Birthday, Classic Alpha Numbers, Linen. Cardstock - Confetti Cream. Ink - Close To Cocoa, Regal Rose, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip. Acces. - pink crystals, E6000, 5/8" punch.

I hope you have a great day, thanks for stopping by!
