Well, it is 8:15 here and the temperature is still reading 87 deg. It was an unbelievably hot day but I didn't do much outside. Went to my jeweler this morning to get a ring repaired and bought two pair of earrings !! LOL !! I can never go there without coming home with something !! Oh well, all women need to add a little bling in their lives ! :) Then after lunch I went upstairs to stamp. It is a great thing to do on a hot day.

Here is the third card that I did for my class a couple of weeks ago. I absolutely love this designer series paper from Stampin' Up that I used for the background. It is the best ever. I love the fact that you get every sheet in the same color but different patterns. Very cool to use. Of course, I also love this stamp set - Office Accoutrement. It is so fun to use. The paperclip is from an assortment of embellishments that I bought on QVC during one of their scrapbook days. The ribbon is Cindy ribbon - I don't know of any other kind !! LOL !!

Don't you just love these "In Colors" ? The colors in this card are Wild Wasabi (the card), Vintage Violet (the matting) and Soft Sky (the designer paper background). They all blend so well together. I'm just itching to try the River Rock. It just may become my new staple.

I also love using this spiral punch and I'm so happy that it made it into the new catalog. It really is a lot of fun. It doesn't fit most roledex files but I understand that there are some out there where it will actually fit. If I find one, I'll let you know.

We (my class) all agreed that this card would be a good card for a male office mate. Not too personal and not at all feminine - just very neutral.

Well, I hope everyone had a great 4th. Stay safe and play safe in the heat. It is going to be in the 90's for the next couple of days.
