"Wellie Boots"

In yesterday's post I was chit chatting about my English Mom and my English friend and the next card I came across was this one and these boots just reminded me of England - We call the "Wellies" - Don't you just want to put them on and jump in puddles?
Have a fabulous weekend - Don't forget to check in on Monday to see more pictures of my swaps and I'll post our project early next week too......

Autumn Days #115452 - $23.95

The moment I saw the new "Autumn Days" stamp set, I just knew it would become part of my collection.

My Mom is visiting soon and if she returns to England without creating silver embossed Pheasant (bird) place cards, I'll eat my hat.

I have another good friend from England who actually lives just down the road from me here in the United States and it's on her wish list too.

Ribbon Of Hope #115552 - $7.95

When I saw the Ribbon Of Hope stamp in our new catalog, I knew that I absolutely had to add it to my collection.

My dear friend in Germany and my Mom's dear friend in England have both faced Breast Cancer this year and I knew this stamp would help me to support Cancer Research. Alex and Chrisie, I'm so proud of you - you are brave, wonderful and an inspiration to us all!

What I love about about this stamp though is the versatility - you can change the color to any and use it to support which ever cause you choose. If you Google it, you'll find a list of what different colors represent.

A good friend of mine (Debbie) who sells CABI clothing was donating 10% of the sales from a show she was doing to support her friend who is doing a massive three day walk soon to raise money for Breast Cancer research and so I made her this bag tag and some cards that she could use to thank her guests. The next day Jane called me and ordered twenty more cards so that she could use them to show her appreciation to the folks who are supporting her.

Stamp Club Swap August 2009

When it comes to creating my swap for Stamp Club, I always want to create something special for my ladies - they are amazing and some of the founding members have belonged to the club for more than five years now and I'm so thankful to have these ladies to inspire me.
I'll post some close up pictures next week once the ladies have seen them, along with some pictures of our project too. I just thought that since I posted a Big Shot video yesterday, I'd show you this project now - I used the top note die to create the shape of the quilt, the buttons die to create cute coordinating buttons for the inside of the card and the texturz plate to create the white textured paper and of course I used four of our fabulous new in colors.
Some of my ladies have the Big Shot and some of them have it on their wish list - they are going to kill me when they see how many times I used my Big Shot for these swaps - oh and did I mention I used two of our new punches and brand new Designer Series Paper?
