Fourth of July Weekend and Winning Free Stuff!!!

Well it is Monday, the 5th of July...and I didn't get much sleep last night. Neighbors were setting fireworks off on and off till around 4am. I've never been a huge fan of setting off your own fireworks, and it is something that I will never do since I like the use of all 10 of my fingers, but it would be nice if my neighbors respected those of us who would like to sleep.

Anyways, my sister did spend a bit of time with me over the long weekend, and as I said she is one of my favorite people to craft with. She made several cards and an 8 1/2 x 11 page layout for a family recipe book she has been working on for a while. Here are pictures of what she created.

One of my favorite parts of when my sister comes is that she has trouble with color matching, I find this funny. This trip she happened to see the Stampin' Up catalog that my demonstrator had sent me and saw there was a color coach that tells you what colors work well together...I may have just found my Birthday present for her, lol!

Now for my contributions. I didn't get as much done as she did, I get distracted easily. I only got two cards done and one was very time consuming, but I love it and I think I will have to make more like it! I have discovered blending pens, and I am not turning back!

All right so one last note that for me is really cool! I entered a weekly contest on Adrienne Kennedy's blog where she gives away different My Sentiments Exactly products since she works there. I happened to win some rubons that are perfect for cards! Head over to her blog for great deals on MSE products every "Thrifty Thursday" and chances to win MSE products on "Freebie Friday". I love this company's stamps and have quite a few of their rubber and clear stamps! When I get the Rubz I'll be sure to share the cards that I make with them!

Now I'm off to try and get something accomplished today even though I just feel like sleeping! =)
