Flamingo Lingo

Hello there!  Did anyone miss me?  It seems like forever since I've been able to post regularly.  It's been super busy around here- work, vacation and just normal everyday life.  I wasn't able to attend the absolutely amazing Stampin' Up! Convention this year in Salt Lake City like I did last year which makes me really sad!  I didn't think I'd miss going as much as I do.  As I browse my friend's blogs I see lots of fun and exciting things that I missed out on.  Meeting up with friends, touring the home office, swapping cards, awards night, etc...The list just goes on.  All I have to say about that is that I will NOT be missing it next year!  Who else wants to join me?

I do actually have something to share with you.  It's a card that I created with the new Ronald McDonald House stamp set and it's called Flamingo Lingo.  I was so excited to see a stamp set with a flamingo in it!  I have tons of ideas and uses for this set!  It is SUPER cute!

This card was created using Melon Mambo card stock, Sweet Taffy DSP, the Large Polka Dot embossing folder and the Flamingo Lingo stamp set.  There's still time to take advantage of the but 3, get 1 free DSP offer!  Visit  MY STORE to shop for all your Stampin' Up! needs!
Be sure to check back tomorrow!  It's time for another bi-weekly Monday Montage blog hop!
Happy stampin'!

Monday Montage 23: Celebrating the 4th of July!

        Hello there and welcome back for the bi-weekly Monday Montage blog hop.  You should have arrived here from the wonderful Cathy Casey's blog.  If not and I'm your first stop- no worries! Simply use the back/next buttons at the bottom of this post to navigate your way around the hop.

Did you enjoy the 4th of July holiday?  The weekend was busy here!  My husband and I went to visit both of our parents in New York State.  We watched some fireworks on Friday, went out to lunch/dinner with family/friends and then on Saturday we went to a casino for a little while!   Oh- and I can't forget LOTS of driving!  We decided to take the MINI on it's first official road trip!  FUN!!!

My card tonight is a card to celebrate the 4th of July holiday!  To create it- I used the June My Paper Pumpkin kit.  I LOVE this kit!  It's so fun and festive!  The only items not included in the kit was the Whisper White, Night of Navy and Real Red card stock.

It's hard to gauge the size of the card from the picture but it's pretty good sized.  It's a 6" x 6"!   I wanted to do something other than the usual A2 standard card size.  This card definitely isn't mailable but it sure is fun to hand out to friends!
