I've been soooooooo busy

Wow... I can't believe it's been a week and a half since my last post. Boy has it been crazy here.. Let's see.. Big ole' audit at work last week. I was here most days till after 6 (and was here at 7 in the AM)... YACK.. that puts a damper on your stamping time. But I did have time to finish a few projects for Saturday. They say that common bonds draw people together. I have 3 very good friend that I met through having WLS.. We all decided to get together Saturday for a 'girls' day and wander the streets of Saratoga to see how my fun we could have.. And did we ever. I haven't laughed so hard in ... well I can't remember when the last time was I laughed like I did on Saturday. I wanted to put together little care packages for everyone. Over the next few days you'll see everything that went into them.. Here's a start..

I had 3 pails that I put everything into .. 1 light blue, 1 green and 1 yellow.... So every one's packages were color coordinated with their pails... Their first gift was a monogrammed note book...

For Jeanine's I used... soft sky, cosmo cricket and very vanilla card stocks
Estelle's... spring moss, K& Co. ds & very vanilla card stocks and
Michelle's... lemon tart, K & Co. ds & very vanilla card stock..

The scalloped ovals were cut out using my marvy punch. The smaller ovals were made by stamping the oval from PTI's "Wedding Day" stamp set in versa mark & then were embossed with (J's) gel-a-tins chocolate bliss scented embossing powder, (E's & M's) black embossing powder.. I then simply cut out the ovals.. Each were tied with coordinating PTI ribbon... After adhering the rubon's.. E's and M's monogram were stamped in coordinating PTI ink with my new favorite Memory Box leaf tendrils stamp. To make the sentiments I stamped my Daisy Buckets best day stamp in chocolate chip and going gray and distressed the edges with coordinating inks.

Each package also included 5 coordinating cards.. Here's just 1 to start.. Again, each card coordinated with the monogram notebooks.. These cards used...

J's... Soft sky, cosmo cricket & very vanilla card stocks, close to cocoa ink, aqua mist ribbon & the daisy buckets live, laugh, love stamp with Stampin Up's garden silhouettes stamp.. For the other two the differences are..
E's.... spring moss card stock & ribbon, K & Co. ds card stock, & brocade blue ink and for
M's ... lemon tart card stock & ribbon, K & Co. ds card stock & brocade blue ink.

I'm sure I'll be flamed for this picture but we had so much fun... This was us tearing it up in Eddie Bauer trying on hats.. Here we are from L to R... Me, Estelle, Jeanine and Michelle.. Estelle.. girlfriend, you sure can wear a hat..

And finally.. Carter just wanted to pop in and say.. HELLO everyone..

So what are the plans for this week? Cards for 2 birthday's, a communion card, 3 mother's days cards, the gym, FIL in the hospital, Mother's day, Birthday & Communion shopping HMM... I hope that's it.. stop back for more of the care packages from Saturday and the cards from this week...

Happy Stamping everyone...
