Fabulous Friday! Free For All Challenge # 17

It’s Fabulous Friday at the Stader house and we are giving thanks for a wonderful week and looking forward to a great weekend and especially Father’s Day.  I hope you and your family are getting ready to celebrate this special day honoring Father’s who are still with us and those who are with Jesus. 

The F4A (Free for All) Challenge today is to create a tribute to our best animal friend.  Well, as you all know, her name is Shelby and she is just about the prettiest dog you will ever see. Shelby Spring 2010 She’s 14 and even though she doesn’t act like a puppy anymore, she still LOOKS young.  And, when she goes to the doggie salon for a trim, she looks 10 lbs. lighter.  Maybe I should start going to her salon – lol!

This card is one of my favorites.  I love this little boy loving on his best friend.  I am so glad that I am blessed with many friends, aren’t you?

Best Friend - no SCS

Wonderful Wednesday!!!

A wonderful Wednesday at my house today.  My BFF and stamping friend Lisa and her mom JoAnne drove two hours to spend the day with me.  We had such fun stampin’ , creatin’, laughin’ and eatin’!  Lisa showed me how to make those gorgeous paper flowers made with Stampin’ Up! punches.  I can’t wait to make a whole bunch more.  One of God’s great gifts is that of good friends and I am so thankful that he blessed me with my sweet Lisa.  Here are a few pix from today.

What a Great Tuesday!

I’ve had such a good day today.  It is my sweet Mother’s 85th Birthday and her Facebook page is full of wonderful, heartfelt wishes from friends all over the world.  She is so special and I love her so much.

I’ve spent the day going through the new Stampin’ Up! catalog for the umpteenth time.  I just can’t wait to share it with you.  My supply will be shipped on June 18th – so get ready for some fantabulous new stamp sets, beautiful new colors and lots of exciting surprises.  I will publish links as soon as we are allowed.

In the meantime, I made this card using Greenhouse Garden for the very first time.  This two-step set is in the current catalog but I didn’t get it until recently.  Wow, I just didn’t know what I was missing.  It is terrific as you can tell by this CAS (Clean and Simple) card.  The Stamp-a-ma-jig makes lining up the images sooooooo easy.  If you don’t have one, order right away.  It helps so much to line up your sentiments or any floating image- wood mounted stamps or clear mount.

I used two of the new core colors- Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight and love, love them.  Especially the Marina Mist.  Today’s favorite.  I love the new core and new in colors so much that I will be changing my favorites daily!

I sure hope you are having a great day and wish you great blessings,

Awash with Life and other Thursday Thoughts

Hello everyone!  We are back from visiting with our children in Franklin and we had a wonderful time.  Jennifer is doing well and has escaped morning sickness so far.  We had a girl’s day out and went to lunch at PF Chang’s…it was SO delicious…and then went shopping.

Our Cards for Kids Ministry Team will meet here on Saturday, so I am spending the day getting the cardstock cut and working on new designs.  We will be making June and July birthday cards for the kiddos in the Learning Center, first time visiting kids and new baby cards.  Good food, fellowship and creativity- can you ask for more?

Here’s a quick card I made last Saturday with my great friend Marie.  She is visiting from California and we spent the day playing with stamps, paper and ink.  What fun!  I will sure miss she and Ron when they fly back tomorrow.                    

Awash with Life

This stamp set, Awash with Flowers is gonna be a classic.  It is a two-step set with 18 images and will be in the new Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog that will be available on July 1st.  I can’t wait to experiment with flower color combos.
Hope your day is wonderful and that you have a special weekend planned.
