WOW what a day we had yesterday. Beautiful weather, great shopping and fabulous friends. Jeanne, Jenn Balcer and I headed to Salado to meet up with some SCS friends. We were running a little late, Jenn had some minor car problems, so everyone else got there before us. But oh my, what a time we had. Our primary stop was Stamp Salado and in the store waiting for us, was Anna Wight (SweetMissDaisy), Sharon Harnist (StamperSharon) and Beverly Gerard (TexasGrammy). We filled our little baskets with stamps, laughed and chatted forever in the store. Shopping for rubber is such a strenuous activity that we were starving when we came out of the store. We headed to a local café for lunch and then hit a few more of the stores. Before we parted for the day, we headed back to the porch of Stamp Salado for some photos.

Here’s a group photo of all of us together compliments of Anna. Mine was so bad that I hated to put it up here. Thank you Anna!

With Tex

I so enjoyed my day with these girls, and look forward to coming back to Texas so that I can see them all again! I have to add here that I feel like I have made instant friends here in Texas. How exciting it has been for me to meet so many women that I have talked to on a daily basis, have something in common with and know so much about. Can ya’ll say WOO HOO!!!!!!!

So let’s get to a little stamping today! It is Sunday, and time for another JBWW Challenge. We have a simple sketch challenge for you today, one background layer and one image layer. Of course, you also have your card front. So you have three simple layers in all, unless you decided to throw in a few extras for matting purposes.

Remember, if you upload to your SCS Gallery to please use the keyword JBWW. Please come on back and post a link to your blog or gallery for us, so we can take a look at your creations.

Here’s my sample today – a little Snowfall. I colored the image with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and sponged the edges of the panel with SU Soft Sky. The background paper is the new Figgy Pudding from BasicGrey, which I found at Jacksonbelle Embellishments.

Good morning ya’ll! Today is gonna be a busy one. Jeanne and I are meeting up with some other SCS friends for a day of shopping and gabbing! My trip is winding down, I have but a few more days to cram everything into, and we realized last night that we are not going to be able to fit some things in that we wanted to do. Oh well, that just means I’ll get to see it on my next trip out. Too bad, huh? hehe

I do, however, have some stamping for you today. This is another item that I have made for the SPG Fall Action. While I was on a roll with the Bind-it-All making journals, I kept at it. This journal was made exactly like the one posted the other day, but I changed up the paper and the chipboard. The sentiment was stamped on Very Vanilla and then attached to the chipboard tag.
