Thoughts on a Thursday.

Wrapping up posting for the week. I'm headed to the Casual Blogger Conference and I am so excited. I never thought I'd be the blogging-conference-goer type. But, I guess I AM! I'm going to learn a thing or two, and will be back next week to share it all with you!


I'm Going to the CBC!


Another thing to look forward to next week: One of my favorite stamp companies, WPlus9 Design Studio, asked me to be on their design team for the summer. I am overjoyed. I know not all of you consider yourself crafters, but I'm about to begin my pursuit of persuasion. Ladies and gentlemen, ANYONE can stamp. (No seriously, men. I know some fabulous male card-makers.) You can make cards that are simple and sweet or fantastically elaborate. I usually sit somewhere in between, but I've been known, when I'm in a crunch, to grab white cardstock, a funky color ink pad, a simple stamp and call it good.  I'm going to show you how to make stamping your "thing" next week with Dawn's releases of the fabulous June stamps. Woot! (Thank you, WPlus9, for the opportunity!) Here is an example of a card I made with WPlus9's Woodgrain Silhouettes.

And lastly, June is the beginning of my focus on health. Did you know that I used to be a health counselor? It is true. I used to teach people how to lose weight and how to exercise. And now here I am, three kids later, needing to take my own advise. I'm going to be discussing my journey here on Sherbet Blossom. If anyone wants to join me, I'm going to have a weekly focus and maybe a healthy giveaway. This new focus is NOT about losing weight (although I'd like to); it is about being healthy. So, anyone can join in.

See you next week!

  13. Welcome to the team and I LOVE your card!!!

    I am all about being healthy too. The loosing weight portion I've been fortunate with. I can eat ice cream every night and work out here and there and not gain a pound. Maybe one day it'll catch up to me but it's not today. But we eat quite well and it's great on our overall health. Good luck and looking forward to your info!!

  14. I love this card, especially the wood grain detail! If you still have a 24 hr membership lets do a few classes together. I really like their yoga class or spin and zumba.

  15. This is a beautiful card! Thanks for following my blog! I hope you continue to like what you see! It's funny when I saw your picture I thought I recognised you and then realised I had been on your design shop looking at your beautiful blog templates, I might be a customer one day although I would love to do it myself (not sure I have the time to learn though!)
