I’m not ready.

Stress and I . . . we’re not good traveling companions.  I am excited about my trip to SoCal, but a bit daunted by The List of things that have to be done before I can hop on that plane early tomorrow morning.  I will have to work on that tonight.  I’m a total procrastinator most of the time, and really thought I was doing so well before this trip! I have prepared two door prizes. And look!  I have my swap card all ready to go, along with samples and supplies.  DAYS before I had to leave, it was ready.


My sweet friend and downline Geeta sent this stamp set to me and (gasp!) I had never mounted it. I woke up the other day, and knew that THIS was the set I was going to use and. I think it came out pretty cute!

Here’s what I used:

Stamps: Flower Fest, Linen background, & that little set from the current mini

Cardstock: Garden Green, Pink Passion, Chocolate Chip, and Glossy White

Ink: Garden Green, Pink Passion, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip,

Other stuff: May Arts dotted organdy and Stickles (from Starlitstudio), turquoise grosgrain and distressing thingee from SU!, sponge to apply ink to edges

AND I even finished my name tag!  Want to see? 


Obviously, I was so excited that I finished and couldn’t wait until the glue dried to snap a picture!

I found a great beaded lanyard at the grocery store last night, and then went from there.

Stamps: Fancy Pants

Paper: Basic Grey Romani 6×6 pack

Ink: Pink Passion Craft

Other stuff: Making Memories rubons and glittery letters, Prima flowers, rhinestones, American Crafts rubons (green scallop and the little flowers behind the primas), Ribbon by May Arts (pink organdy) and from Michaels (turquoise).

Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers for Starr. It means a lot to me, and I will print everything out to share with her when I get back from California.

    Beautiful card Jenn! My first color family that I ever ordered was bold brights, and it was largely influenced by all your fabulous creations. Your tag is just too stinking cute.

    Hope you have a wonderful time.
