Remember, anyone who 'likes' us between now and Sept 15 will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Ai gift certificate! Click on the 'share' link on the left and tell your friends and family! Happy stamping!

Under My Umbrella

I'm working late again tonight...seems to be my best time to work.  I did the coloring on this image from Art Impressions on Tuesday while I was at the Paper Rabbit in Greenwood, so this evening I made it into a card.  Don't you just love these girlfriends?  I love the way they are all sharing the umbrella.  With the high temperatures everyone across the country has been experiencing, I sure wish we had a reason to get out the umbrella! The forecast is for lower temps in the 80's this weekend. That will be a blessing!

Lady on a Scooter

I'm getting ready for tomorrow's workshop at the Powdersville Community church and I am about to turn out all the lights and get some sleep.  I have changed the start time starting tomorrow to 11am which will give me a little more time to prepare in the morning and arrive early.  It takes me about 20 minutes to drive from Anderson, SC where I was 5 minutes from the church.
Here is another of the new releases from Art Impressions.  It comes unmounted and is one of the new series called "Ai people".  Let me know what you think of it...I love comments.
