No Time To Post - It's Pool Season!

Hi Everyone,
Just a quick shout out to all! The pool is open and I have been happily swimming and sunning.  My favorite time of year for sure.  The whole living room, dinning room and kitchen are dec'd out in the summer patriotic red, white and blue. So I am one happy girl!  I did have time to craft this little card in a box to give to my friend Nadine in honor of her 30 years on the job! WOW 30 years, that's twice as long as I have been on the job.  Here is a picture of the card I made:

I just loved making the die cuts.  This time I used my brother scan n cut to cut out most of the stamped images (which by the way are digi stamps).  I also used some Stampin' Up punches.  I printed the stamp images and the DSP I made in CA2 in the SU color Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss.  The base cardstock is the new In Color Blackberry Bliss.  I just love the colors. I am already planning my next card in a box. I think it will be a red, white and blue patriotic one.  Enjoy the last day of the Memorial Day Weekend.  It's time to hit the sunshine!!

Teacher's Apples

Hi Everyone,
WOW, I have been busy with no time to sit down at the computer to post. Today is Mother's Day so before the company arrives for brunch I thought I would enjoy a few minutes to myself and post a picture of this years Teacher Appreciation apples that Rory took to school this past week.  They came out great:
I love these sliceform apples.  I made these using Stampin Up cardstock.  The colors are Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip.  Each apple holds 10 wrapped Hershey nuggets.  You can easily pull a candy out from the corner side.  Here is a picture of the apples wrapped and ready to go:
The tag is made with the new SU scallop tag punch that I love so much.  You can make the tag any length that you need. The bow is SU burlap ribbon that I shredded, gee I love that stuff.  I signed on as a hobby demonstrator back in March and you can see I have been enjoying my discount.  All the teachers loved their apples.  I have been making them for years and they are always well received.  
I am off to get ready for company. We are having Brunch here today and I can't wait to see the family and spend some time with everyone. Wishing all the Moms out there a Happy Mother's Day! Thanks for stopping by,
