It's RACE DAY!

Good Sunday Morning!
I know I say it most Sundays...but it's RACE Day! I feel a win for Jeff Gordon today! Yah! Maybe you all could cheer for him too...lol
Yesterday I said I was going to stamp all day Saturday but believe it or not I didn't stamp a thing! I know....shocking eh? Luckily I have stamped a TON lately and have stuff to show. On Friday, Julee posted all the Anni-VERVE-sary sketches so we could get ahead start...thank goodness too!
This first one is for sketch #9.
Stamps: Asian Flair; Cardstock: Artichoke, So Saffron, WW; Inks: Saffron and Artichoke; Accessories: CB embossing folder, Mat pack and Paper Piercer, Artichoke Grosgrain, Pearls, Dimensionals
This is for sketch #10.
Stamps: Floral Whimsy; Cardstock: Groovy Guava, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, WW and Chatterbox DP; Inks: Tangerine; Accessories: Martha Butterfly Punch, Dew Drops, Circle Punch, Dimensionals
Storage Units, Ink & More have the cutest back to school set called A touch of class and when I saw it, I knew I wanted to make Chloe a backpack tag! These are little self laminating business card protectors that I purchased at Walmart in the business section. I added a key ring and some ribbon to finish it off. Since I don't like to put her name on the outside of her backpack, for saftey reason, I've added a piece of designer paper to the backside to fancy it up! Isn't it cute?!

Tomorrow is THE day that we can order from SU! I need to finalize my order...I know I can't get it all....not with leaving for vacation this week....but I sure want it all....haha!
Also....I noticed I passed the 200,000 blog hits...WOW! I just hit 100,000 the beginning of May...you all are amazing and to thank you....I'll have some blog candy soon....after my holidays ;)

WOW! Dawn I love both of those cards! They are so great. I love the color combo of the yellow and green one. So pretty. Fabulous job as always! Thanks for sharing. I have to get busy on my sketches too!
And I am sorry I just can't pull for Gordon, our household is a Stewart fan! :-)

Great cards, cute tag, boring race! Jeffy needs to fire Steve Latarte and Nascar needs to get rid of the COT because it is a dud. We are watching more IRL & drag racing to supplement the dull Sprint Cup series. Jeff is our fave, too. Have a great vacation! I wish I had the new SU! catalog. I'm dying to see what's new!!!

Julia Aston said...

Gosh - your cards are just gorgeous Dawn! love the fun tag too!

Bethany Paull said...

Love the natural feel of your first card, with those textures, colors and images.

Jennifer Meyer said...

Have a great time on vacation just in case I forget to tell you!

Hugs, Jennifer :)
