Christmas in July blog hop

Santa has checked his list.....your name just AIN'T there.  Gonna use this for my hubby for this holiday. LOL
And this little cutie pie is called peace angel and the ragdoll style is just adorable.  I watercolored both cards and matted, then embellished with ribbon and stars.

Flower Photos for this week.

Photos I took on my way to work Monday morning.  If you look close you can see the dew on some of these flowers.

The sample card for Monday night Card Missions

I do a Card Mission/ladies fellowship the first Monday of every month, and to get the ladies started I always provide a sample and the parts so they can get a quick start on the creative process. Here is the one I did this month. It is on light blue card stock and the background paper is sage and dark save flowers and vine print. The stamp set used is FRESH CUTS from Stampin' UP. I used Sahara Sand (love that soft dove gray color). The main piece is stamped with versamark and embossed with clear. The other 2 small pieces are stamped with sahara sand and punched. There is a brad in the center of the flower and both of the little pieces are popped off the card with a little bit of foam.

It was a 4-GRANDdaughter weekend

Rachael, Leila, Breanna and Greta came Friday night and we packed as much as we could into the weekend. They are 8-11-11-13 yrs old.

We crafted (of course), made bracelets and matching rings, watched movies, cooked a new dish and went garage sale-ing.

The gals stayed until Sunday morning when we went to the annual 4th of July picnic at the city/county park.

Competition with Lori for Scoring garage sale finds!

LOL-Lori is a dear friend, so I know she will just laugh when she sees the junk I have collected for organizing my other junk! However the new cases from SU are not junk....and I have 12 that I created jackets and labels for to store my "other" stamps in. Here you see them next to my SU ones. I have ordered 16 more to fill and can't wait to get started on them.
Next are the wonderful baskets---the kind from the dollar store. All 6 of those baskets have embossing powder in them. Most of them were purchased on ebay for about $1.50 a jar. A real 'score'. The shelf below has my glitters, though when I took this photo my MS glitters weren't there yet. (they are now-so imagine about 20 bottles of glitter)
This is the inside of my coffee cabinet that I got at a resale shop for $8. It is just too cool. It is for the stamps that the ladies use the most during our Card Missions night.

This little baby is not all filled yet, but I got it at the resale shop for 50¢. It is above my embossing station to hold the versamark and extra embossing powders.
I think I got this little wooden shelf at a garage sale for 50¢ too. it is about 6x8 in size, but perfect for my little name stamps.
Hard to see, but the thing under all that 'stuff' is an AOL tin lid----stuck to the wall to use with magnets. it holds my rubber bands, and threaders. Below is a plastic staple case that has curly labels in it, and next to that is a slender hanging plant holder, but is used as a metallic marker holder.
A view so you can see more of it. Below is a wooden cutlery tray on its side, filled with containers of teensy stuff. a couple of small stamps and 2 small spray bottles. I love this right at my reach when I am working.
