Today I have been a cutting fool, the DSP shares will go out Wednesday. I had to run over and look at the one cabinet and it will go in tomorrow, it looks so nice and I can hardly wait till it gets all the way done. I keep telling myself patience. It won't be all the way done till February, and I promise to post pictures.
I wanted to show the little frame thing I did for Leadership gifts. I just made a few. These little frames I got in the dollar spot a year or so ago and they turned out cute I think. The saying I got off of Shanna Jensen's artisan award winning frame she did a couple years ago and it is too funny and can be read a couple different ways.
Here it is up close, I did it in My Digital Studio. Neat eh?
I wanted to show you a few more pictures from Leadership and I will continue to do so for the next couple days. I know tomorrow will be busy finishing up the DSP cutting, I have to get my teeth cleaned too, I had to reschedule it from a few weeks ago when I had that blasted cold sore. I also have 400 cards to cut for my classes this weekend, we also have Spring Fling coming up and I need to get that all designed up too.
Stampin' Up! always have fun prizes and the prize patrol runs them out to you, well this year there were hand stamped cards in with the stamp set and paper, and my friend Amy got this one and it was even made by Shelli, so cool eh?
Here's Lisa and Amy (hey you two cuties!!), two fun gals and they are like my BFF Tracy and I they get as much "us" time in as they can at events since Lisa moved out of state a few years ago.
We had one fun night after Stampin' Up! served us dinner and we were to do cards for Ronald McDonald house and then we were to do a card as a table and submit it to win a stamp set. The thing is they give you this box with paper, embellishments, adhesive, inks, and we had a box that was not packed using the color coach guidelines, and oh my gosh I hate stamping under pressure, and it's even worse when you got stuff that does not match. So this is the card our table did, and I shouldn't say our cause all I did was cut and scored the easel and stamp the greeting, the rest of the girls did the rest. But it turned out not bad I must admit. Our table did not win, and the cards that did, were awesome.
I think I might do this sometime at one of my downline meetings, but I will put something together in the box that goes together.
So I watched Cash and Cari tonight and what? it has been on just a couple weeks and already a repeat? Geesh, I am not liking the show like I thought I was going to, I think I'm gonna go back to watching Two & a Half Men.
Ok, this old broad has to hit the hay, I got to get up early in the morning so Mark can get the cabinet put in.
Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping in.
I am really anxious to see your new studio! I am in the new house now and have mostly antiques in the studio. Two friends are coming over the first week of Feb to unpack the boxes and get me organized…they have full control of eliminating anything I should not keep LOL.
So I am going to focus on my squillion boxes to be unpacked for this month..and then the studio gets done!
That card is BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Wow that card sure turned out cute. If that wasn't one of the winners I would love to see what others did. You sure are a busy busy kind of gal. I found out one of the Spring Regionals is in Branson, MO which is about a 5 hour drive from me. I may just have to switch with someone at work and go. Since I can't afford to go to convention this year I think this will be my fun for SU. Dean thinks I am crazy but oh well. I can't wait to see more pics of Leadership. Roscoe says hi to the fur and the feathers.

Your table card was wicked good. What a fun idea to put a box of stuff in front of everyone and get all the different results. Hmmm. I may have to put a couple together and have fun with Mom at a retreat we are going to.
Your little frame gifties came out really nice too! Oh and Cash and Cari isn't going over to great here either. I'm still trying to like American pickers too. Some times it's pretty good but other times it drags on and on…
Sounds like you are really busy! Make sure you get some rest young lady!
Debbie Keane says
Di, It was so good to see you again and to meet your BFF, Tracey. I am so touched to be the recipient of one of your little framed sayings. It sits on my "messy" desk now as I create!!!!
Kim Mullin says
Di,your card is beautiful. I love it and am surprised that it didn't win. It was a fun activity. Nice seeing you.
Catherine Harwood says
Your card is beautiful!!! I don't think we were even brave enough to take a photo of our's — try soft suede, crushed curry and garden green — not an attractive color combo. Barb was courageous and gave it a great try. Yours is really awesome. Great to see you as always — love watching your studio evolve! I may get inspired to do some cleaning.
Cindy Major says
Wow, those frames are neat! (Unlike my stamp room…)
Cindy Major says
Wow, that card was pretty awesome! Seems like a lot of great cards were entered in the contest that night. Ours didn't win either, and I totally dazed on getting a pic of it before we submitted it. What was I thinking…
I was feeling a little frazzled when we all started stamping, but then I got into it and couldn't even be bothered to stop to go to the Memento Mall when they called out my colour. It reminded me how much of a slow stamper I am compared to others, though… I wasn't even half-way done with my card when everybody else got up to put their finished one in the basket!
That was a fun challenge…
