Aren't these the cutest owls ever? I got to sneak downstairs yesterday and managed to make two cards with my new Rachelle Ann Miller stamps. I have 6 of her stamp total now and I have gotten all of them from 7 Kids College Fund. I have bought them all on preorder from them and they always get them out to you as soon as they come in. I haven't preordered any of the new Christmas ones yet, but I am eyeing that Moose! Oh and the Snowman of course cause I have a severe snowman addiction.

I am so not a gardener. A few years ago I planted a bunch of things that would come back every year and I wouldn't have to mess with them. Hosta, Daylily, Tulips, Daffodils, I've got some phlox, there were some peonys there already when we moved in. Well, I haven't done much with it since then and it is pretty over grown. Things need to be split and moved. Maybe next year.
So we have been ignoring the flower beds and every couple of weeks my husband takes the weed wacker and trims down the weeds. He left a huge thistle that I guess he thought was a flower. It turned all brown after it got taller than me and he finally got rid of it. We had some trees coming up that I took out and we had something coming up in an old flower pot that I had Gerber Daisies in a few years ago. That something turned out to be these sunflowers. I never put them there. Maybe the kids planted them?

Thank you so much for bringing me that catty! I am so sorry all heck was
breaking loose when you showed up. I was going to make you look at Carter and
tell me if I should take him to the ER, but I didn't want to traumatize you or
Megan. It ended up not being that bad after we got it to stop bleeding and put
ice on it to get the swelling down. Phew!
So after all that I opened a bottle of wine and have taken two sips from my big glass and have been perusing the catalog. So don't mind the chattyness. Have you made out a list yet? Of what you are going to order I mean. This is my list. I need to talk this through. Hee hee.
Tasty Sweet - cute, but how many Halloween sets do I really need? I
have carved and candlelit, and have used it maybe once. It isn't current though,
but we aren't doing a Halloweeen camp so it would only be for personal use...
Snow Swirled - really like this one. But how many Christmas sets does a
girl need. My projects for our Christmas camp don't really require stamping so I
don't need another, but I may cave on this one. I am such a sucker for
Owl Together Now - I am disappointed in this one. The owls are
too little. I think I am going to have to get the one from CHF with the owls or
the PTI one.
Humor in High Heals - This one is a maybe... but
then I just looked at the price and am not so sure it is worth that to
Cheers to You - Yeah I am getting this one and I know you
probably don't need to borrow it. Does it seem like the newer sets are
higher priced than they used to be? Well they are die cut.
Crazy for Cupcakes - Cute. Maybe. Giant cupcake on the next page... umm probably
Putt Putt - Cute concept, but not for $24.95
Pocket Silhouettes - Cute, but too small for me I think.
Inspired By Nature, Kindred Spirits - both of these intrigue me. I'm not sure though.
Happiness is a Journey and Nature Silhouettes - I would like to have a masculine set. I like the saying in the first, but not really feeling the train. I like the images in the second, but I don't know when I would use the sentiment. You know I'm not all about that.
Under the Stars - Definately when it is on sale like I think I heard
it would be.
Say it with Scallops - I like it. I wish that lollipop image
was some where in a different set and bigger though. I like the lollipop
Puns from the Past - I like this. I like puns. The images are kind
of small. I like bigger. It is in the preview catty so maybe when those sets are
I'm so happy the Summer Picnic didn't retire and you have a pack
of paper you can use. If you want to borrow my Tart and Tangy someday you
I don't like the Christmas paper so much and I need Christmas paper
for the camp. We are making some gift bags... I hope there is some cool paper in
the Holiday mini. But our camp is in October so I don't know if I will be able
to order that in time. Ok now off to finish my wine.

And then yesterday these came in the mail. I preordered these back in June before the promise I made to myself. I can't wait to ink these. I love my Rachelle Ann Miller stamps.

This card features the Emerging Colors technique. And it has some of the new SU! colors. Tangerine Tango and Baja Breeze. I paired them up with So Saffron and Not Quite Navy.
