Simply Sent App

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Aren't these just the cutest little notes/cards that my hubby made 
and emailed to me?!!  YES!!! Stampin' Up! has a brand NEW product
and it is totally FREE!!  Now you can't beat that can you??!!
If you have an iphone just go to the APP STORE and download the Simply Sent 
App for your iphone. Stampin' Up! is hoping to have it available for the Android, 
but so far it is only available for the iphone.
Here is what the main office says about it...
It has been hard to keep this a secret-we're so excited about it! We have created a card-making application, and we already have a great name for it: Simply Sent! This iPhone app allows you to create an e-card-from a template or completely on yor own-and send it via e-mail or post it on Facebook. And it's free!
Here's something you should know about this app: it's not My Digital Studio on a mobile device, not even close. This scaled-back version will only give you a taste of what you can create when you buy MDS. We want to get our name and our art out there so more people than ever before will know about Stampin' Up! We hope you'll get excited about it as well and that you'll do the following:
Download it from iTunes or the App Store, share it with all your friends, and post a review! The more positive reviews it gets, the more prominent place it takes in the iTunes store.


How sweet it was to find these little cards in my inbox from my sweetheart!!

So...want to know what my hubby is up to?
He is working on my second kitchen (in the basement) on his days off so
it is a fairly slow process, but I told him I would be patient.


 Ok... see this nice new drawer above the  pull out wastebasket?
He was in the process of cutting the bottom piece for this drawer
when the table saw kicked back and the board flew out into the driveway
(about 20 feet) and on it's way out it hit his hand - finger to be exact.
A Med Center Visit
 Thankful for Doctors who know how to sew
 7 stitches later...
Then what does he do when we get home??  He finished the drawer!!

Thanks Sweetie you sure are a trooper!!

Thanks For Stopping By!

Stamping in Bulk Part 2

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

These are the cards that I made for the guys (not sure what I'm talking about? - 
check out yesterday's post)
This is a card I made at one of Glenda's classes and I liked it so well that I
saved it for this occasion.  I also am using this card for the guys in our
church choir.  (I help out the director by supplying cards for all who sing
faithfully each week.)

SS: In Wilderness, Teeny Tiny Wishes
CS: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
PUNCHES: Word Window, Modern Label
INK: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
the background of the Eagle was created by inking up a clear block
like you use for your clear stamps, and it works best if you use a foam pad
under your card stock to get a good impression    

Check in tomorrow for Part 3 - the Thank You's

Thanks For Stopping By!

RHSSC #64

Sunday, November 25, 2012
 This is the sketch challenge for the Red Hot Stampers this week
and this is my take on it...
Can you tell what I used?  A color swatch from a paint store!!
Remember I said I like to get inspiration from stuff sitting out on my
crafting table??  Well, I made this cute critter punch art inspired by 
Erin Gonzales for my Punch Art File and I made two for whatever reason
and one was still sitting out on the table.  I also had picked up paint swatches
for a totally different reason (than for painting) and thought it went 
together rather well.
Erin called this little critter a bear, but I was thinking it looked a bit like
 and Joey kangaroo.  Either way, he sure is cute! and made my card super easy!!

Now pop on over to the Red Hot Stamper blog to see what the other gals did with 
this sketch challenge

Thanks For Stopping By!

Have a Blessed Day!!

making it all the way to the World Series! WOOT WOOT!!!

My hubby is thrilled the Tigers signed Tori Hunter from the California Angels.  
I guess I should have made this card in Tiger Orange and Navy.  
This card features the stamp set GREAT SPORT

Naturals Designer Paper Pack, Whisper White.
A shout out to Debbie Henderson for sharing this card layout.

All In The Family

Wednesday, November 21, 2012
 If you follow Facebook at all you probably have seen where people have been doing a
thankful post each day in November as a countdown to Thanksgiving Day.
Today is my "Thankful Post"
I am thankful for my daughter who has such a giving heart.  
I've mentioned before that she and Tyler are into karate.
Julie noticed that the "boards" that the karate masters wife take to shows etc were 
very outdated so she swiped them and totally re-did them with new up-to-date 
photos then added some little karate kids stamped using the All In The Family 
and Family Accessories Too stamp sets

And I am THANKFUL that they get to spend Thanksgiving Day with us tomorrow


She did an amazing job!!
See the cutie in the green shirt and head gear?  That is my little nephew
Ben who has already achieved black belt.  Totally amazing kid!!
Guess it is a family thing - his dad and older brother are also black belts.
Quite an achievement!!

Thanks For Stopping By!

Have a Blessed Day!!

Thankful

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Dale and I are involved in a small fellowship group at our church
where we meet (try to) once a month to have a dinner together,
to share in each others lives through prayer and support.
This is a HUGE blessing in our lives and I wanted to let them know
that we are very THANKFUL for them.
November was our month to be the host and hostess
I made some yummy chili (one beef and one chicken)
while the other ladies supplied the remaining menu items.
I had made this Amish Lemon Poppy Seed Friendship Bread up for them
to take home when they left.  What better way to gift someone than
 to doll it up with a pretty tag and tulle bow.  
The Stamps I used were from French Foliage (my fav!) and
Thankful For... a retired 2 piece set but so glad I keep all my word stamps
Colors used Early Espresso and Cajun Craze on Very Vanilla Card Stock.

Thanks For Stopping By!

Have a Blessed Day!!

Top Note Elf

Monday, November 19, 2012
 Craft Sale Season (for me at least) is over.  This is one of the Christmas items
that I made to sell.  Isn't this a cute little Elf?  it makes me think of the 
Christmas movie ELF!

 and was inspired by Julie Pitta
What kid wouldn't love to find this giant Candy Cane Elf as a Christmas treat?
The Elf was made using the Top Note Die for his face, his hat and his bow.
The hair of Daffodil Delight was hand cut.  
His ears: Medium Oval
Eyes: 1 1/4" WW, 1" Black
Nose: 1 1/4" 
Mouth was drawn in
The stars in his eyes: Pennant Parade Stamp Set and ILLUMINE INK
the flesh color card stock is Blushing Bride.  Yes, it is retired but I needed
a good flesh color and it is not as pink at Pink Pirouette.

Thanks For Stopping By!

Have a Blessed Day!!

M and M Santa Treats

Friday, November 9, 2012
 How cute are these??!!
See the little tag on the inside? 

Once again I used My Digital Studio to color it 
the way I wanted.  It was way easier than using my markers.  
It is from the stamp set TAGS TIL CHRISTMAS 
#120847 $30.95 wood mount or
#121169 $22.95 clear mount  
 Yes, it was a lot of fussy work, but thanks to my hubby who cranked out 60 of these little buttons from the SWEET BUTTONS EMBOSSLIT (#121813 $11.95) for the Santa front for me I was able to get them assembled and looking so cute!  Thanks to Heather who inspired these cute candy holders.

Several years ago my daughter gave me this cute little sleigh filled with bath products.  I just didn't have the heart to throw it out thinking that some day it would come in handy.  Well, I guess today was the day because I think this is the perfect way to display my M and M Santas at our craft sales.

 Other punches used: 1 3/4" Scallop Circle, Scallop Border
I also used the retired 1/4" square punch and a 1/2" square punch I purchased from the local craft store

Thanks For Stopping  By!

Have a Blessed Day!!
