Sharing some cards

I know - I know - I've been a bad blogger! My "it's-almost-fall" resolution is to at least blog once a week! I do have an excuse, tho (besides being a stay at home mom during summer when school is out) is that I have an art show coming up on a little over a month and I still have several new paintings to complete (from start to finish). If you are local and you want to know more about the art show - send me a message and I'll give you details! Oh - and one more fun thing - I found out earlier this week that the Rougarou Gallery in New Orleans just sold one of my funky New Orleans themed paintings.

So - on to crafty things...

I recently had the wonderful experience of working with Paper Crafts Magazine's "Card Style" special publication. It's all about finding your style - from cute and fun, clean and graphic, classy and elegant and shabby and vintage.

Here are a couple of cards I made for the publication. There are under the "Shabby and Vintage" section.

Most of the papers on this card are from October Afternoon, as is the Candy Cane die cut.

Papers on this card are a mixture of Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon. The stamp is from Stampin' Up!

Thanks for stopping by today! Check back in the next 7-8 weeks because I'm sure I'll have some news on the art show.

Almost September? How about a Sneak Peek?

I'm so excited that it's almost September! When you live in the southern heat zone, you can't wait for cooler weather and the sooner the better! Speaking of September... I have a sneak peek for the September CupCardsToGo Kit! The kit is called "Fragrance" and I loved playing with it! Here's my peekie:

Be sure to leave a comment here because as always with the CC2G blog hops, someone will be getting a prize! Your next stop for the blog hop is Wendi's blog. If you just happened upon this blog hop, go HERE and start from the beginning.

And if you want to hang around and reminisce about the days of summer, here are a few pics from our recent trip to Perdido Key, Florida.

Cupcards To Go August Kit Goes LIVE

In case you didn't know, the CupCardsToGo August Kit "Riptide" is live!! What a fun "beachy" kit with some fun stamps from Lawn Fawn! Check out the Design Team Gallery for even more inspiration.

Here are some of my cards I made using this kit. It was so much fun!! Sure didn't do much for my island fever, though. I think I'm going to have to pack a bag and hit the beach - and soon!

Be sure to check out our Guest Designer for this month, Sudie! Now, hop on over to the CupCardsToGo website and get your kit before they are sold out - and do NOT forget the toppings, add-ons, etc.!

I'm serious about packing a bag and hitting the beach. I will most likely be awol yet another week but back with beach photos. We hit record temps here today with 106 degrees. Really. Not fun! Have a wonderful week and enjoy what is left of summer!
