Stampin' Llamas Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to our Summer Blog Hop!  First let me thank Stephanie for making our beautiful banner and buttons.  As you can tell, I haven't spent much time lately blogging.  But I have gotten to see both of my granddaughters in the last two months and have had to visit my mother since she fell again.  My customers think that I have disappeared off of the face of the earth, but I am still here and happy to be creating again.
My first card was one that I had copied off of the internet and we made this at our new catalog party.  Just love the new Washi Tape!

This card was so much fun to make.  I removed the Shop Around from the wheel and made it into a large stamp.  I used my favorite tool, the Stamp-a-ma-jig to help stamp this card straight.  The stamp set, Postage Collection is a Hostess only set, a great reason to have a Stampin' Up! party.

I have been selling my cards at the Carbondale Community Farmers Market and last Saturday, I noticed that the Sympathy cards were all gone.  On my flowers I used a technique with the Aqua Painter and Ink Refills.  It is time for me to dig out a new bottle of clear embossing powder, the dregs I had left did not melt right, so my technique did not work as well as I had planned, but I still like the end result.
