Wow, has it really been 4 days since I posted?

Sorry everyone! We spent the weekend of the 4th with family and since we left our daughter to stay with her grandparents, we decided to paint the kitchen this week. I know, it sounds simple enough, but you obviously aren't familiar with our home improvement record. (And for the record, it was my husband's idea to paint this week - not mine!) Anyway, whenever we do something in the house, it takes twice as much time and twice as much effort as we plan and we even plan for the extra time and effort. Life would really be so much simpler if we could just hire true professionals to do the work! Sigh, maybe someday - a girl can dream, right?

I do have a card for you today, as you can see and if you attended my Going, Going, Gone stamp camp at the end of June, you got to make this one! The card uses the retiring stamp set, Year after Year, one of my faves!, and the sentiment is from It's Your Birthday - a rockin' group of birthday sayings AND also retiring! Humph!
Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla cardstock combined with Designer Series prints paper in Rose Red and Certainly Celery. I markered the image and after stamping, used my 1/16" hole punch to make the holes for the Linen Thread. The doodle lines were drawn with a Chocolate Chip marker.
Tomorrow and Saturday at 10 am is 12 x 12 Scrapbook camp - I still have room on Saturday if you'd like to come. I'll be posting one of the layouts tomorrow so you can see what little stamping I have been doing this week! Sheesh! You'd think we were painting the kitchen or something! :)
