Baby, it's HOT out there!!!

The heat is on here...and I know we're not the only ones having an early heat wave...I won't complain about the heat though...I would much rather have it than the cold...like we were having when I last posted...

I am going to start posting more..I have been doing a few things I want to share..I have been in a Secret Sister swap for about a year now over at http://simplyscrapping.ning.com/.  We change Secret Sisters every 3 months...and for the last 2 Rounds I have been the hostess...which has been fun but also work...and sometimes frustrating...because people sign up then don't follow through...they receive but don't send out...I can't believe these people do so and that they are fellow crafters...I do not understand how any one can be so deceitful...I know that life happens and sometime the unexpected happens but I don't think that has happened on all of these cases...there has just been too many of them!  I couldn't have any fun using what my SS took the time out to either make or buy for me..knowing I didn't send anything out to the SS that was looking forward to having something too...

Anyway..here are a few things that I have created for my secret sisters...

A card using the Cindy Lou Circut cartridge..I love that cartridge!


Then when I sent her that last package of that round I made another desk set...

Along with a card...I really loved this set..and was really tempted to keep it myself..especially since I can't find anymore of the paper I used on the set...



I do have more of the paper I used on the card and i think I will someday make me a desk set using it...It's just one of my favorite paper of all time...

This brings us to the Round I am in now...this is the last month..and I haven't sent my last package out yet so i will do that before I post here...just in case she is one of my follower's...

Along with some scrapping goodies I sent her a set of note cards...they were simple to make...the last card is just one I included with her package...it is a 4 x 4 inch square...easy peasy to put together...



I am also including a couple of cards I made in May one is a Mother's Day card for my Mother n law...and the next one was for my sister's birthday at the end of may...I even did something for the inside which is something I am trying to start doing when I send my cards out...







At the moment I am working on a altered notebook...I am doing it for a swap also..so I will share that when I am finished...it's a huge challenge for me to do this one...but I am enjoying it!

It's that time of day that I need to start thinking about What's For Supper???  I love to cook...but I really don't like thinking of what to have...and then there is the cleaning up afterwards that I could do without too...

Hope you are enjoying the week..

Hugs
T

love your cards & I'm with you on not complaining on the temps. :)

maybe some day/month/year??? - I will start posting on my blog again.
I'm so with you - I don't understand how some of the people can live with themselves or look in the mirror - to join a swap or secret sis & receive but never send out.SHAME on them

Ditto on all of it! :) Love the cards especially the first one you posted! Love the colors of it! I keep meaning to write on mine as well . . . maybe the three of us should form a sisterhood of the should haves. ;) lol

My! You have been busy! I love everything you created. I especially like the card where you added the strip of paper at the top and bottom of the sentiment on the inside. Great idea!

So glad to see you posting again.
