Christmas in July

Yes, it is half way to Christmas! 
If you would like to get a jump start on the cards to send, you could come and do one or two of this one at the Stamp Along on Monday. 
As soon as I saw this set called Every Blessing in the catalog, I knew that it was the one that I will be using for my cards this year. 

This card is very easy to do as both of the stamps can be placed on the same block so you only have to stamp once. The Night of Navy layer has been run through the Big Shot to give it some texture and the third stamp in the set is stamped on the inside. 
I am not sure, yet, if there will be another Christmas one this time or not. There will be more Christmas stamp sets available in the Holiday Catalog that will be available in August with your Stamp Along order. 

Here is another card that will be available for you to make at the July Stamp Along. 
Hope to see you there! 

If you would like to place an order but can't make it to the Stamp Along, the hostess code to use this month is 
Thank you to all of you that order on line and link your order to the Stamp Along order! 
If you would rather email the order to me that is also appreciated!

Watercolor Wings

Do you like butterflies? 
I do. That makes it easy to do cards for almost any occasion. 

The new Watercolor Wings stamp set makes beautiful butterflies in your choice of colors! 
This one will be at the Stamp Along next week. 
The ribbon is discontinued but, since I have it, I am going to use it. 
I really need to use more of the things that I have here so I can make room for new things. 
Do you mind if I use discontinued items at the Stamp Along? 
The other sets used on this one are Butterfly Basics and Birthday Blossoms.

This is one that we did this afternoon at Village Green.
What a difference the colors make. We also did envelopes to match today. 
This one also uses Gorgeous Grunge and Sassy Salutations sets.

There are a lot more stamps in the set and I hope to have another one using that set at the Stamp Along. There are so many neat new sets that I don't know which one to use first. 
Hope you can come to the Stamp Along next Monday and make some of the cards.
