Hi Ladies,

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying all the beautiful sunny weather. I know that Tempi (my Black Lab) & I am. Yesterday was Tempi's 9th birthday and we had lots of fun outside. I feel truely blessed because a few months ago Tempi was diagnoised with terminal cancer and we truely didn't think she was going to make it to her birthday. So, many many thankful prayers that she did....and many greatful wishes for each day I have with her.

I don't know about everyone else, but I have had so many neat idea's running through my head lately. But, it often seems that I am lacking something to make them. Does this happen to anyone else?

For example, I had thought of making an A-2 Tri-Fold Cami card...cutting out the center panel with a circle die, and putting in a stamped image of a couple of cherries. The cherries would be embossed with Black Cherry kool-aid for a nice scent and the sentiment would read something like, "You're Berry Special". I have everything to make the card, EXCEPT a stamp of solid cherries. I only have one that's just an outline which doesn't give off enough scent!!! Go Figure!!! LOL

Then I had an idea to do the same type of card, but in a Nautical Theme using blue hair gel in a bag to make it look like it's under the sea / water. Heck, I even thought of a small circle with a Word Window punch across the top to make a fish bowl. But, I can't seem to find am image I like or that will fit! Argg!

So, I tried my hand at an Asian Themed card and came up with the A-2 sized Altered Gate Fold Kimono Card (see attachment's). I love how it turned out using the double sided DSP! BUT... unless I can find my mini Asian themed stamps in the mess of my main Craft Room, this card won't work for this event or any project that requires a stamped image. Hummmmm.....thinking outloud.....I wonder if I could just use a sentiment on the inside and that would count??? UGGG!

Soooooo many idea's and way too few supplies! (I know, I know... only a manic crafter would say that!)
