No new crafting from me

But I will share a couple more day lily blooms with you. The top one is Savannah Royalty and I just got it last year so I am seeing it in person for the first time. It is really gorgeous. The second one is one I have had for a couple of years and it has a marvelous fragrance. Hope you like them. I plan on trying to get cards done tomorrow and also stopping by and visiting you all. Have a great evening.

A Layout to share

Retiring Designer Paper Raspberry Tart along with Pink Pirouette and Orchid Opulance are used for these pages. I also used Daisies 2 die along with both the Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch. I will miss this paper as it is terrific for little girls.

I will be around later today and visit you all. Have a great Friday.

More new In Color Cards

Did I tell you that I really do like these new In Colors from the soon to be released Stampin' Up! Catalog! Here are 3 more for today. The top card used the new double sided Designer Paper Razzleberry Lemonade, Rich Razzleberry card stock, Scallop Oval Punch, Round Tab Punch, Razzleberry Ink, and the only stamp set used was Sincere Salutations. I added the large flower from the Pretties Kit in the center of the Scallop Circle Die that I cut using the Rich Razzleberry card stock with the Big Shot.

The second card is the cute ChooChoo and the Oval All stamp sets. I have a couple of little grands that love trains and I think this will be perfect for them. This card is completed using the new In Color Soft Suede and Confetti White card stock. I added Crystal Effects to the smoke coming out of the train and then just had to add Dazzling Diamonds. The matching Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Scallop Punch and LargeOval Punch helped finish it off. I also sponged the edges of the card stock.

The last one has no layers. I stamped the Baroque Motif using Rich Razzleberry onto Whisper White card stock, stamped Thinking of You from the Sincere Salutations stamp set, sponged the edges, added the Polka Dot matching grosgrain ribbon. I then used the Trio Flower Punch and placed them on Dimensionals, used Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds to finish it off. Three quick and easy to do cards. All Stampin' Up! products.

These products will all be available the 1st of July. You will be able to view the complete catalog on line and place your order at that time.

Manhattan Rose

Last one for a while. This one is Barely Banana mounted on Pretty in Pink. I also sponged Pretty in Pink over the yellow roses. I think this needs some glitz. I will probably add glitter somewhere on here but don't think I will outline it this time. The pin and pearls are from the Pretties Kit.

More yard photos

This fellow was in our yard early this morning and anticipated eating my plants......I was able to get very close to him and all he did was look at me. I tried shooing him away and finally he sauntered off. This is the first time in the 3 years we have lived here that I have seen a deer in the yard. He is looking for trouble if he tries to come back and eat my plants! I don't know if you can see or not but in the top picture the neighbors dog was out in their front yard and it didn't bother this fellow.
Now this first daylily is 'Northern Nocturn' and I got it last year and this is the first bloom off it. I'm sure the other blooms will be nicer but it is rather pretty.

The bottom flower is 'Charles Johnston' I got it last year also and he should bloom most of the summer. It is really much prettier than the photo.

Three things going on

One I have having trouble getting into some blogs this afternoon to leave comments. I want you to know that I will been commenting on your blogs as soon as I can.

I have another Manhattan Rose card but surprise it is not a Christmas one. All products Stampin' Up! I decided to use Barely Banana and Night of Navy on this one.
Number three is my terrible, messy craft space. I will be trying to get it in order so that I actually can do something.

Reason I was out and new Christmas card

Yesterday I had my doctor appointment. I originally went in January and was well overweight, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high sugar. She wanted me to go on medication and I didn't want to. She gave me 3 months and in those three months I did bring it down some so she gave me 3 more months. Well, I have lost a little over 30 pounds, my blood pressure is normal, my cholesterol is still a wee bit high but it has dropped almost 40 points and my sugar is fine. WooHoo no medication! I am still working on it but between Weight Watchers and using the treadmill I am doing fine. I plan on coming down another 20 pounds and that should do it.

Now here is the 2nd Christmas card I did using the Manhattan Rose Textured Impression die from Stampin' Up! All products used are Stampin' Up!

Bev's Candy

You really need to get over to Bev's blog and check out her great candy give-a-way. Wonderful goodies.


I haven't had much time for crafting with working in the yard but I have completed this layout and I have a card to post later. Hope you are all doing well and I will be getting around and visiting everyone soon.
Here is a scrapbook layout that I did for our June Challenge over on PAO. We had to use stamp, circle and hardware. These photos are from a weekend get together that our local group had in the very early spring. What a ball we had and got a lot of scrapbooking done also. All cardstock is Club Scrap, all stamps from Stampin' Up! and the hardware is also Stampin' Up!
