We had a fabulous time at the 16th Annual Doggy Dash.  I didn't know that there were that many dogs in this world!  I thought I was one of just a few!  This is me & Ann just before the Dash started.  I was even featured on KCRA's 5pm News last night!   Just another 15 seconds off my 15 minutes of fame.  Ann didn't record it, but I understand that her ankles were in there as well.

When we came home, I inspired Ann to make this graduation card for our neighbor Jessica's graduation.  Blue & Gold are her old school colors so we cooked up a little cap & diploma with Stampin' Up! Brilliant Blue & So Saffron. 

Isn't it purdy?  Ann & Cecil went next door to party with the family & my buddy Snoopy.  (yes, that's Snoopy that can climb trees).

Check back EARLY tomorrow so you can get the retirement list & grab your savings before they go bye-bye.  OR get on Ann's newsletter list now & have it dropped right into your mailbox.

May 30 2009 Ann & I are off to dash with the doggies to raise money for my homeless 4 legged friends.  While we're gone, I thought you'd like to see ANOTHER version of this Watercolor Mosaic card.  This is the one that the church stampers made to take home.  They used the Sprinkling - no, the Sparking White Cardstock that Stampin' Up! makes.  This is the best close up of this technique.  It sparkles almost as much as my eyes! 

You should join us next time!





Ann's got a Watercolor Class that's coming up in June.  They're not doing this, but there are 6 cool projects that they WILL be doing.  Just check this post to sign up or go check out the class in the mail for a video online class.

OH YEAH!  Ann wants me to send a shout out to Megan Duarte from Biggs, CA who is our newest 24/7 Stamper!  She's already given me a nice scratch behind the ears.  I'm ready for more!

You can join us too!  Check this out!

May 29 2009 Today is the last day you can support me for the Doggy Dash!  I'm taking Ann to Sacramento to walk with lots of other pups to raise money for the dogs that don't have homes....which is a lot these days.

Even $5 or $10 would help.  You can donate here.

Last night my stamper girls came over & made cards for the church.  I think they did their best ever!  Ann's done this card with this set just a little differently each time.  I think this one was the best!

I especially like that Ann was paying attention when I told her to take the picture with the shade of the blinds in the background.  She follows instructions well.

In a day or two I'll share the sparkly rose card that they made to take home.  Or maybe the tri-fold card with the butterflies & the texture that Ann got.

Decisions, decisions!

May 28 2009
It's about time that I got Ann to let me shoot another video.  How can she hold a director like me back? 

This one's got some good tips & an EXCELLENT picture of me at the end.  Hope you like it!

There are only a few more days before the end of the Crystal Ball Contest.  Win ANY set in the book!

For details, see my May 21st post.

May 20 2009 It was wild & crazy around here with stampers here for the 2nd night in a row.  And there are MORE stampers & scrappers coming back tonight!  WOOF!  Gotta love that!

This first card from Noelia in Puerto Rico.  She couldn't come to the party for the Divas on Monday night, but she sent hers in.  Some of us don't get to see a lot of stamps in Spanish.  Here's your chance!

And here's one below by Marcy in Canton, Ohio.  She's a bit far away too, but both stampers were celebrated!

Both of these cards feature the Designer Series Paper that's on sale to "Buy 3, Get 1 Free".  And if you're on our newsletter list, you know how you can get FREE SHIPPING on top of that!  Just scroll up to the top left & sign up today!

May 19 2009 Just one Scrapbook in a Box left.  (see 5/17 post).  Last night my favorite Divas were here.  That's the best of Ann's Demonstrator Team of 24/7 Stampers.  They did the 6 Ways to Watercolor class FREE!  THEY LOVED IT almost as much as throwing the ball for me.

Learn how to paint your textured Love Notes like a pro in two sessions on June 25th or 27th.  Blender Pen included for you to take home.  For only $5 more, you'll get an Aqua Painter too!

May 15 2009 Tomorrow is Armed Services Day.  Call your favorite soldier & tell them how much you appreciate their service for our country.  OR send them a card.  Doesn't have to be a fancy one. 

Hand stamped is best, but the gesture is what's important.  You can also go to the Let's Say Thanks website to send them a special e-postcard designed by a child.

Hope you like this card.  You can see a REAL close up here though it doesn't do the Sparkling White Cardstock justice.  Remember - not ALL troops are men!

May 14 2009 Did you know that Stampin' Up! rubber stamps received Creating Keepsakes Readers Choice Award for the 9th consecutive year?  Yowzah!  And these two projects from the Soft Summer set are just a hint of why our stamps are so cool. 

They also won for best catalog!  Speaking of catalogs, the Crystal Ball contest is coming later this month.  Get your predictions of what you believe will retire and get ready to win!

Be sure to contact me to get on Ann's list for the new Catalog & Idea Book for July 1st mailings.

May 13 2009 Late post today.  I've been doing some homework.  The latest Barking Board needed some important names added to it.  Can you believe that it's just about half full?  (it'll be OVER half tomorrow.)  I've smudged the names a little to protect the innocent. 

If you're new to this yard, the Barking Board is where I put your name down for every $50 of your purchase OR when you have Ann stamp with your friends at a home workshop.  When it's full, you can win a $100 gift certificate that spends just like real cash on any stamps or accessories from the Stampin' Up! catalog. 

This cool board of mine is only available from me & Ann so you'd best shop now & and get your name on the board to win!  Don't forget the Buy 3, Get 1 Free Designer Paper & Textured Cardstock that's only available in May.

      Chow, Baby!
May 12 2009 I'm so glad that we're up & running again - just like a Jack Russell.  Ann's stamping with those Red Hat ladies in Grass Valley today so I plunged into her pictures from the Stampin' Up! Seattle Regionals to show you a very cool card made with the Build-A-Brads.

They even used Watercolor Paper like we're going to do in the Six Ways to Watercolor Class that's coming up on June 25th & June 27th.

Its going to fun - but especially when you get in on the Early Bird price.  Love those birds! 

      Chow, Baby!
May 11 2009 Ann & I did a Scrapbook in a Day class with some lovely new friends on Saturday.  I was feverishly working on my blog because I haven't been able to update my posts.

If you can read this, it means that my efforts paid off.  Hope you'll like this video to help you learn a little about how to take better pictures.

Be sure to sign up to be my Facebook Fan so that you can get in to win some cool stuff when Ann's not looking.

  I'll be posting my contest for Face Candy to Facebook later this month.  I'm just waiting for her to turn around so she won't see the cool stuff that I'm giving away!  (A rooster & flowers come to mind.)
      Chow, Baby!
May 8 2009 I think only of you stampers from morning until night.  I'm working at Ann's side full time making sure that she crosses my T's & dots my i's.  (unless I'm outside exercising)  So I'm going to let you in on a little secret.  Sometime this month when Ann's not looking, I'm going to have a Face Candy contest.  "What's that?" you ask!  It's some cool stampin' stuff that someone's going to win, but they have to be a fan of my Facebook page to get the real scoop.   

It doesn't count if you're a friend of Ann's on Facebook.  You've got to be a FAN of ME!  So go to my Facebook page & make sure you're signed up to be my FAN.  Keep watching Facebook & see.  Don't wait until the last minute.  I've got to do it quick while Ann's not looking so I can dig deep in the Stampin' Treasure Chest & get the best loot for you!

Today's card is for you Glitter Fiends.  You know who you are.  You know there's glitter on your face, but you don't know what color it is.  For you, it's a card made with Heat & Stick & Stampin' Up!'s Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  Don't you just love this Soft Summer set?  I can hear you now.  Oooooo - Aaaaaaah!

      Chow, Baby!
May 7 2009 Today is the National Day of Prayer.  Be sure to do that today. 

Time to start thinking about Mother's Day.  My birth mom is in Oregon, but I think that I'm going to stamp a card for Ann.  I need some inspiration. 

How about this one?  They made it at the Technique Geeks class this week.  Ann's calling this one Watercolor Mosaic because that's what it looks like.  Just click on the picture to admire the close up.

If you're thinking that you need something fun for your mom or need to give your family the hint, contact Ann today about a gift certificate.  She can work it out.

      Chow, Baby!
May 6 2009 It was an exciting day around here yesterday - at least for me.  It was so fun having all the stampers here that I barked myself silly.  (Tuesdays can be that way for me.)  Later I did this self portrait card.  Guess I should stay away from the margaritas next time.

Can't wait for the next time you all come stamp with me!

Please email Ann if you're interested in getting some of the CD Holders in this month's newsletter featured project.

Cinco de Mayo 2009 Viva la party!  I've got TWO parties going on today!  Technique Geeks are showing up at my house TWICE to stamp with me.....er.....Ann. 

Here's Lyn's swap from the 24/7 Stamper Meeting.  She's one of our newest demonstrators.  Didn't she do a great job?

Speaking of new demonstrators, here's where I get to welcome Kathleen Barrett of Little Rock, Arkansas & her Agility Girl, Sadie, to our team of 24/7 Stampers.

You don't have to have a dog to be a demonstrator on our team.  But it helps if you at least like me!

      Chow, Baby!
May 4 2009 Happy Cinco de Mayo Eve!  Do you have your blender & ice ready?  Here's a cool project you can make with the Sizzix Matchbox Die.  Don't you just love it?    I think that's where Ann hides my treats.

As always, just click on the pic for a real close look.

Be sure you get on the newsletter list to see what else I've got cookin'!

May 3 2009 Happy Sunday everyone!  Here's a special video for everyone that likes to take pictures.  You don't have to be a scrapper to like this one.  I'm going to see if I can get Ann to watch it too. 

Funny, but this lady doesn't say anything about giving a treat to your subject when they're done.  I think that we'll have to send her that one because that's my favorite tip!

May 2 2009 Yesterday was Mother Goose Day.  Today's the Sacramento Stampin' Garage Sale Day!  If you're down by Arnold Schwarzenegger's house today, stop by 4258 McDonald in the 95821 zip code.  We've got lots of demonstrators offering their favorite stamps & accessories at "new to you" prices.  I'd come, but someone's got to keep Snoopy out of the tree! 


If you're hanging around the house, then how about enjoying this cool Stampin' Up! instructional video about how you can use the Designer Series Papers on your projects.

Just click on the picture on the right & enjoy!  Then click on the SHOP NOW button & get your favorites while they're on special for buy 3 - get 1 free.  That's SOOOPER DOOOOPER.

May 1 2009 Happy May Day!  Here's a shot you don't see every day!  It's my buddy Snoopy.  Normally we do the fence race (I'm sure I win), but Snoopy decided to jump up into his tree next door.  Yep.  That's a tree about 15' high & the top of their cook house next door. 

I think he just wanted to look in & see what fun my stampers were having!

Here's Karen's card for the 24/7 Stampers (Demonstrator) Meeting Swap.  You could come too!  Just join our team!  Right now you can get the Stampin' Up! Standard Starter Kit or a Scrapper's Mini Kit for just $75.  Then you're on your way to stampin' fun!  Find out more here cuz you're going to LOVE IT!
