Monday Montage #148

Oh my goodness, you wouldn't know it was September.  Hot Hot Hot!!!  Although the heat brings fresh tomatoes, peppers, melons and corn!!!   We are loving football season...we had a home game on Saturday so we got to go to the Stadium and watch the season opener football game...Utah vs NIU  35-17 We Won!!!!!

We have a cool day with some rain providing a little reprieve from the heat.  Feels fallish which has inspired the card I made today.   I would love to have a pot and tree like this in my yard.  I stamped the leaves twice to fill in the foliage.

Monday Montage 146

I just got back from spending the weekend in St George/Cedar City.  This being my birthday month and a BIG birthday to celebrate.  My sweetheart Ralph and I were able to get away to spend the weekend together and catch a couple of Shakespeare plays.  We saw Macbeth and Twelfth Night.  They were both incredibly done.  Some of the characters will will stay with me for quite some time.  I would love to dress up like the three weird sisters for Halloween.  Anyone Game???  I have never been disappointed with the productions and always come away hoping I can go back the following year.



Its the end of August - My mind turns towards fall which happens to by my most favorite season.  I know Summer is not over, but I can't resist the colors and thinking of the cooler days.

Oh and you can't forget Football.  My Utes take on our rival on Thursday.  Excited, nervous, and ready to get our first W of the season.  Go UTES!!!!

The card I made uses my most favorite fall colors (minus Old Olive :) )  I cased the idea from the Stampin Success publication.  While I was in St George I was working on a project for a Relief Society activity (womens organization in my church/Ward).  I forgot one of my cutting plates so I was unable to work on it until I remembered that some amazing demo's live in St George.  I got in contact with one of them and they supplied me with a set up plates to so I could get a bunch of stuff cut.  This card will be sent to her with much gratitude!



Stamps - Banded Together
Paper - Blackberry Bliss, Mango Melody, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla

Monday Montage 145

One of my favorite things about stamping and being a Stampin UP demonstrator is having friends that live relatively close by that we can chat and share all the goodies that we get.  I love having friends all over the continent to blog hop, chat and share ideas.  
As I sit here and type up my post, I am chatting with my BFF Wendy as we compare cards, cooking triumphs, dog walking notes and plans for the coming week.  So much fun!!!! 

For this blog hop I chose an image that pretty much takes up the whole card.  Wendy inspired me with her 4th of July card with the same set.  I colored the main image with markers giving it the striped/blended look.


Stamps - Everything Amazing
Ink - Black, Marvelous Markers-Pretty Peacock. Crumb Cake, Gorgeous Grape
Paper - Crumb Cake, In-color 2019-2021 DSP, Whisper White, Pretty Peacock, Gorgeous Grape
Accessories - Butterfly Beauty Beauty dies, Magnolia Ribbon Combo - Linen with white edge

We Create Brights Collection Blog Hop


Summer time!!!  It may be hot, but I love this season for the produce in the garden, hiking and campfires, playing in the pool or lake, the light that stays until its time for bed and the all flowers of summer.

 When I was younger I had a gingham girls coloring book.  I colored every page so carefully and I think I even saved the book after I was done.  I am always drawn to anything gingham.  My cousin and I would lay on the floor and she would take one page and I the other and we would color together.  Fun Times.

Here is my card for the Bright collection...Can't go wrong with gingham and daisys. These yellow daisy's just speak summer to me!



Stamps - Enjoy Life, Birch Background
Ink - Poppy Parade, Black
Paper - Poppy Parade, Granny Apply Green, Brights DSP, Whisper White
Accessories - Heirloom Frames and Dies, Medium Daisy Punch, Wild Rose Dies, In color Faceted Dots

Monday Montage 144

Summer is flying by.  I long for the summers when I complained about how hard my life was, but somehow finished chores by the time the river was warm enough to swim in.  We walked or drove our little Trail 90 down to our swimming hole.  It was right in one of the many bends of the Middle Fork of the Payette River and we would spend the rest of our afternoons swimming with the fish and soaking up the sun on the sand bar until it was time to come home and help Mom get dinner.  Adulting just doesn't seem quite as fun -

So... Another exciting thing is that College football is starting up in about a month..  My Utes first game is against our long time rival BYU.  Cant wait to see how this one turns out.  I love going to the football games and cheering on my team!

Here is the card I made for the Monday Montage Hop.  Images like this are one the main reasons I invest in Stampin Up markers.  They match the ink pads and paper and allow you to add multiple colors to one image precisely.



Stamps - A Little Lace, Vibrant Vases (Sentiment)
Ink - Pretty Peacock, Stampin Write Markers (Pretty Peacock, Roccoco Rose, Mango Melody, Old Olive, Seaside Spray)
Paper - Pretty Peacock, Whisper White
Accessories - Stitched Lace die, 2019-2021 In-color Faceted Dots, Pearl Basic Jewels, Reversible Ribbon Pretty Peacock/Old Olive.
