Vacation and Cards!!

This summer is nearly OVER and I can't believe it. My boys start back to school on August 11...wayyyy too early in my opinion. Hubby was in Italy for work earlier this month for 2 weeks, we've had church camps for the boys, vacation in the Smokeys last week and finally home for a few weeks of quiet (hahah, that never happens) before the boys go back to school. I have a few weeks after they begin before my school begins. Summer.....always goes too fast!

Here are a few cards that I made for my club this month. I have 6 wonderful ladies in my club and might have 2 more. We just started this month and had a wonderful time. If anyone wants to stop by for a club meeting, you are free to do so. We meet the 2nd Thursday of each month.
This is a simple Buckle Card. You can find directions here . I used Real Red, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock. The designer paper is from an old set of Stampin Up paper called Summer Picnic. I made the apple core by using the Round Tab Extra Large punch and coloring in the skin and seeds with my Stampin Write markers. I printed the sentiments off on my computer and the inside says "keeps the doctor away! Please feel better!" I also used the Extra Large 2 3/8 Scalloped Circle punch to make the scalloped circle behind the apple.
This card uses a new Two Step Stampin set called Awash With Flowers. I used So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip cardstock. The tab on the right of the main image was used by punching out one Curly Labels Extra Large punch and adhering half of the punch behind the image. The metal hardware that contains the sentiments is from the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware set. I also used Chocolate Chip ribbon across the edges of the Pumpkin Pie strip. I used the SU Petals Aplenty embossing folder and ran the Pumpkin Pie strip through my Cuttlebug.
All these supplies can be ordered off my Stampin Up website located to the right. Just click on the Stampin Up catalog. You can also purchase these cards from The Loft. The Apple card is $2.50 and the Flower card with the metal hardware is $3.00 E-mail if you are interested or if there are any stampin needs I can help you with...I'm happy to assist!
