Birthday card

I just got back from Stampin Up! Convention this evening and I had SUCH a HUGE blast!!
I loved it! More details on that to come!
I had some pictures I wanted to share before I get to convention stuff so here are a couple of cards I had made previously.
The "Celebrate U" card was made with the All About U stamp set, Old Olive CS & ink, Chocolate Chip and Not Quite Navy inks. I like this color combo for masculine cards. I used the direct to paper technique.

This card was made with the Three For You punch box- which I LOVE! I used Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomengrante, basic black & Whisper White inks and CS.

I'm gonna go get some sleep!

Way back in June...

...I made a card for Father's Day. It's again very simple without alot of "stuff" or do-da's I don't like to see cards for men with alot of "stuff". I used Vintage Violet, Really Rust and Chocolate Chip card stock and RR, CC and Versamark inks. I rock and rolled my letters on DAD.

This is my Charlie cat. He loves boxes and he kept trying to get in the box but he's about 3-4 pounds overweight (yes, that is ALOT for a cat) and he kept tipping the box. So Rick helped him in, but he couldn't lay down like he wanted. Silly cat. Notice the doggy feet in the corner of the picture.

Oh! my aching back, new catalog and a card - Really!

I made this card for my brother's birthday. He is a gardener so the flowers are appropriate, I just tried to keep it simple. I used Night of Navy, Old Olive and Sahara Sand Inks and Cardstock. I used the Heartfelt Thanks, Canvas and Everyday Flexible Phrases stamp sets.

I have received my Winter 2007-2008 catalog and it's lovely, fantastic, gorgeous, addicting, etc., etc. If you haven't already seen it (gasp!) check it out here. I love the new In Color WILD WASABI! I haven't played with mine yet, I just finished mounting my new stamp sets.

I went to a spine specialist (is that a real title?) today for my back and I have a diagnosis after about 15 years of wondering and guessing: a tear in one of my discs, which is why I haven't felt like posting much lately. The doctor said I keep re-tearing it but never quite rupturing it (whew!). When I tear the disc, my muscles bunch up around it to protect it, which would explain why my pelvis sometimes feels like its almost dislocated! So I get to do physical therapy. Actually, I already was but it wasn't enough.
After my root canal on Wednesday, I should be doing good. July has just GOT to be better than June. Right?! mmmmm I'm going to bed.
