I've been MIA for waaaaay too long!!!!

I can't believe that my last post was July 7th.......it has been an absolute whirlwind in my life.....I was all excited to go to convention and then found out that I should have my plate and screws taken out of my ankle.  So I had to cancel my trip to Salt Lake City.....I was so bummed.....my friend Shalae was able to demonstrate on stage with her Mom this year and I wasn't there to see her.  From all the posts of my fellow bloggers I knew she did a great job.....even though the circle she punched went down her shirt..hehe!!!!!!

I managed to get a little vacation with my children in Beaver Creek, CO for 10 days and had a great time visiting with my family.  The only bummer was the flight home became a night stay in Atlanta....love Delta!!!!!
I am now in Cincinnati visiting more family and seeing a week's worth of Reds baseball.....I managed to get home last Thursday and repack to drive 10 hours on Friday....CRAZY!!!!!

One exciting bit of news.....my Mom resigned as a demonstrator.....she forgot to place an order a few months ago and was pending.   With this month's recruiting incentive she signed up for only $99 and she was able to place her first order out of the new Idea Book and Catalog......WAY TO GO MOM!!!!!

I wanted to post a card since it has been forever and I came upon this card on my phone that I had made back in June....
This card features the new stamp set "My Friend" found on page 139 in the catalog. 
 I wanted to feature the new in colors and I thought that coloring in the raindrops and adding crystal effects to them would make the card pop!!!!!  I stamped the big floral image in lucky limeade and cut it out then adhered it to the card.  I just love the sentiment...."my friend". 

I would love for you to have a catalog for your very own.....email me or call me for details on how you can get a catalog for FREE!!!!!

Don't forget that another round of UStamp With Dawn and Friends is coming up.....it's all about the holidays and I am REALLY excited about the project I designed......if you would like to join this round....CLICK HERE to join!!!!!!!  I would love for you to join us.....

I promise I won't be so MIA.....next week!!!!!
