We have hit a slight bump in the road. As I write my sweety, Henry, is over in the hospital. He had extremely low blood pressure yesterday, the second time this month. I took him to the hospital and they have kept him over night and will keep him until at least tomorrow. They are looking at the medications he takes, about a dozen, and his heart.
So, it might be awhile before I get any pictures on.
Please keep us in your prayers. I love this man and we still planning our wedding for the 10th of July.

Sorry no pictures tonight. I have been working the past FOUR days on Wedding items, two weeks and counting! I will post them here soon. I just haven't stopped to take pictures yet. My step-son-to-be has been here also. I have so much to do in the next two weeks, and my mom will be here Tuesday. Ugh, so much to do, oh I already said that didn't I. Hope you all understand if I am not around much for the next three weeks and wish me luck and welcome to all of my new followers. So glad to have you and all of your wonderful comments.

I finally was able to change my blog to a three column format. What do you think? It has taken me forever to do this. I finally found some good instructions this evening and walla! I have it.
Also I am sharing a card I made for one of the SUDSOL challenges this week. It was different this week but we had fun with it. We had to follow 8 steps and then we had 30 minutes to create our card.
1. Pick 3 card stock colors, one could be DSP, as with mine, I also used Pumkin Pie and Chocolate Chip.
(I used the New in July DSP Greenhouse Gala, which I also used on my magazine add card for my June 10 post. This is some fun paper as you can see and very versital.)
2. Pick 2 ink colors, I used Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze - New in July.
3. Choose 2 stamp sets Friends Never Fade - New in July - and Thank you kindly.
4. Choose one punch - Small Tag punch.
5. Choose one border - could be paper, ribbon, anything, I chose to use the Eyelet border punch to make my border.
6. Pick 3 embellishments - 2 Certainly Celery brads and ribbon.
7. Pop-up one item - the tag on mine.
8. Have at least 3 layers.
After we gathered everything then we had 30 minutes to create it.
If you decide to give it a try e-mail me your creation and I would be glad to post it to my blog.

We are right here with the times thanks to our great Color Renovation! Here is a picture of an add from a current popular magazine and above a card I made inspired by this add.
I used our new, available next month, Designer Series Paper Greenhouse Gala, which uses our current Pumpkin Pie along with some of our new colors Daffodil Delight (a new core color in July) and Pear Pazzazz (a new In Color come July). Could you get any closer to looking alike? I also added another one of our "new next month" core colors Cherry Cobbler.
I was so excited when I saw this add and our New Colors coming in July. This just shows me how with the times and current Stampin' Up! tries to be with the products we make available to you, our valued customers.

Here is a card I created using our faux tearing technique and our level one hostess set "It's the Thought" in our summer mini. I think he is just so cute, don't you? You can't buy this set BUT you can earn this 7 piece set for free just by hosting a workshop with a qualifing order.
Come October I will be starting another club. One of the benefits of being a club member will be that you get to come my place and learn this technique, and many more, for "Free." If you would like to be part of the fun, and budget your spending for your crafting supplies, then e-mail me and I will put you on the list for the next club that will start October 1st.

I can't believe we are a week in to June. My how time flies when you have a wedding coming up.
I have been busy working my other career, teaching elementary students. Getting as many days in substituting as I can before the year is over with. Enough about me.
I have shown here one of the items we made at Eveline's workshop today. These are gift card holders. The are so fun and easy to make, and so much cutter than the standard paper envelope that you get at the store.
We had fun playing with some of the stamp sets in the new summer mini. The sayings come from the Watercolor Trio stamp set. We also used some of the Bitty Buttons. It is easy to coordinate the buttons with any paper because you place what ever color you want under the clear button and Wala! you have a button that matches you card.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I know I enjoyed stampin' today with the ladies at the workshop.
Thanks Eveline for hosting.
