Time for a bird pic...

... don't you think? For those of you who are frequent followers of my blog and who know me, you are aware that I love birds and post pics and know lots of birds by sound and sight. lol Especially my Club members, right? For those of you who are new, that's just a little trivia. Well, I'd say it's time for some blog candy. Tell you what, I still have a stamp set or two left from Sell-A-Bration. Leave a comment at the end of this post and everyone who leaves a post before Friday, July 31, will be put into a drawing for one of these sets! The winner will be posted on Friday evening!

Random pics and Open House...

Bear with me here because I have lots to write on today. lol :)

Yesterday at Open House, I held a special drawing. hehehe. I had a drawing for a new In Color stamp pad, Rich Razzleberry, for anyone who is a frequent blog visitor that could mention anything, in particular about my blog. The name drawn was Joanna! She even gets the pretty polka-dot ribbon to match! See! It pays to visit my blog once in a while. :) She mentioned links that I have on the left side, how I post pics of my grandchildren and of samples of cards. Yay Joanna! :)

Open House attendees had the opportunity to embellish boxes using the Big Shot. Here are a few. It was fun!!! This was my FAVORITE designer series paper from the just-retired catalog. I have my favorites already for the current. Do you?

Here are some cards that I have on display in the Renessance Room. :) Two are from the swap from Ballston Spa and one is a make-and-take we did there. One is a card from my friend, Elisa. :)

Here is our cat, Doc, sittin' pretty on MY chair! If I'm in here (the Renessance Room) for any length of time warming up the chair and I get up, he will take it over. lol
Now forming a club for the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m to start September 3. If interested, please contact me for more details. Need seven members in total!
Thanks for stoppin' by on this gorgeous sunny day in Central New York! Good luck to Boilermaker Runners!

How Sweet Is This?!

This is a box made with two envelopes using the Big Shot. Although the designer series paper that I used has retired, it still makes a nice box. All of the paper is double-sided and the embellishments, other than the half pearl from the Pretties Kit, are also made using dies and the Big Shot. Guess what!!
Come to Open House this Saturday where you'll get a box and you'll be able to embellish it using my Big Shot. I'll help you every step of the way. So fun and easy!
This box is similar to one we did as a make-and-take last Sunday! So much fun!
