I am really excited about today’s Make It Monday because it’s the first Make It Monday sharing ideas from the new catalog!  Today’s card is truly a “Connie Card”.  I LOVE flamingos!  I don’t know what it is about that bird but they are my favorites.  My friend Jackie created this card because my Fabulous Flamingo stamp set hasn’t arrived yet.  She and I have styles that are so similar and I absolutely love that she let me share her card for Make It Monday.

The 12-piece Fabulous Flamingo stamp set is also a 2-Step stamp set.  That’s how you can achieve those layers of colors and make the flamingo so realistic.  Because the stamp set is photopolymer, you can see through to where you need to stamp.  Easy peasy!

There are 5 sentiments in this set so if Congratulations aren’t in order, you can easily change it to “Tickled pink for you”, “I love you kind of a lot”, “Thanks”, or “That was awesome”.

The colors in today’s card are bright, happy, and tropical!  The new Lemon Lime Twist against the Bermuda Bay blew my mind!  It’s gorgeous!

Had a wonderful camping trip this weekend!  We only had a little rain but the good part about that was we were able to get in a few walks around the campground.  It was humid but I have been doing so good about exercising that I didn’t want to lose momentum.

One of the main reasons we wanted to go camping this weekend was to prepare the camper for our week-long camping trip next week.  Ginny’s Broadway Bootcamp starts Sunday and we decided to stay in the camper rather than a hotel room.  Camping for a week is a lot different from camping for a weekend so we wanted to make sure everything was in working order.  Well, it wasn’t.  Why is it when you are planning for something like this EVERYTHING seems to go wrong?  The strings on two of the blinds broke, the tail-lights were very faint for some reason, and the brakes on the camper weren’t working properly (eek!).  Mr. Awesome figured everything out (whew!) so the tail-lights and brakes are back in working order.  He ordered replacement strings for the blinds and that should be an easy fix.

On our way home, his low tire pressure light came on….in the POURING rain.  Uh-oh.  Luckily we were able to get to a gas station without having to pull over on the side of the road.  It seems he picked up a screw in the middle of the tire.  The good news, he didn’t have to change the tire because it was a slow leak.  

Instead of stamping today, I get to sit in a tire store waiting for the repair to be done.  YUCK!  I hate tire stores!  They smell like….well, rubber… and not the stamping kind.

 

Have a wonderful Monday my friends!  I will be back tomorrow with a 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video!  Hope you will join me!
