Greeting from the Rain Capitol !

Hi everyone.! This is day 1 of my first Alaskan Adventure on my own.  Well not so much on my own as the first "big" vacation since my sweet hubby died 2 year ago. I am visiting his sister in Ketchikan Alaska... It has been a bittersweet day.... love being here, but also knowing how much my Ford would have loved it as well! I did bring some of his ashes...
 It rained most all day, but hey, when you are in a rain forest, I understand this is what you get! Still its great being here!
Yesterday I got to meet 3 stamping friends in person... we've been chatting on line since 2006.... and finally got to meet at the Seattle airport... 2 hour and tons of giggles later, we are even closer now. That was great! All my stamping buddies... be sure to check out www.stampinup.com or go to www.barbhopper.stampinup.net to see all the fabric on sale for only .99 cents while supplies last!
 no new cards to show you tonight... didnt even bring stampin stuff... I figure I;ll miss it later, right now I am helping get things done for Fords neices wedding.... exciting stuff!! I miss my Michigan people.. but will be home in 2 weeks!
Right now I am enjoying the cooler weather and am wishing I could get this rain back to the Detroit area.

And of course we need to let everyone know so they will come to her party..  this is the design our daughter and I came up with. Many thanks to Stampin Connection , as this is where we got our idea from... I just love that about Stampin Up!, as demonstrators we share ideas with each other!

Lots of Jan birthdays!

Happy Janurary and that means  a couple of someones have birthdays in my family. This particular card went out to my oldest brother.. I like the Bold Bright Colors I used that match the DSP from the main cataglog..Its called BigTop... altho I do not have the corresponding stamp set I thought it went well for a birthday theme. This card was soo easy I decided we should make this at our Stamp Class at Church Monday evening!
