Thank you Debby ..... I've just been BUMPER TAGGED!
I copied the rules from her blog as so I'll get them right here.
The rules are simple
1) Send ONE card to someone you know within 7 days! (family, friends, associates, cyber people, etc.) ANYONE!!! Doesn't matter who... just do it. Can you imagine the smile on their face when they open their mailbox and see a card from you?
2) Tag (yes, I know, but this is the only way to spread this) 5 people you know to do the same thing (Tag means tag them to send their own cards to their own people
3) Proudly display this on your blog to spread a little sunshine and pass it on.That is it, isn't this wonderful, have a few people in mind that I will be sending some cards out to so please do the same, smiling faces are so wonderful.
Ok these are the people I am tagging, hopefully we can circle the globe with these RAKs' if you have already been tagged you will just have to send out more cards, but I did try to check first to make sure you were not.
My 5 friends I'm choosing are:
2. mamajoy -- Joyce
3. Cactus Barb
5. Stamping Mathilda

This is my July Card Kit I designed for the Simply Sentiments Card Kit Swap. My partner was Rosalie. I design the card and send to her all the pieces I used and let her make a card using my supplies! The PP is by Creative Imaginations (Pink scallopped one is too). I can't get enough of this paper! The image is by ALL NIGHT MEDIA. Since I love flowers I threw in an extra silk one too. Some offray polka dotted sheer ribbon. The decorative pin is by Heidi Grace. The beads are from CTMH. The little heart charm is from the Jewelry Shoppe. The sentiment is by Hero Arts. PP is by Stemma. This is one of my fravorite SWAPS that SS has started! 6x6 size card.... P.S. SOMEONE SPECIAL HAS THIS CARD ON THE WAY TO HER IN THE MAIL..........Peggy

I used 12 inches of vellum cut 1 inch wide to make the border embellishment at the bottom of the card. Run adhesive along the back side of the strip. Then us a tuck folding method until the strip is completly used up. You will need to do more than one strip for a 6x6 card. Lay these onto the front of your card tacking it down with adhesive. Then I ran a machine stitch down the center. This makes a great ribbon affect on the front of a card. You can use cardstock as well using this method. Balloon stamp is by Stampendous. I used a Gelly Roll white pen to add accents to the balloons.

What a day....... We got up early today and headed out with Chad and Brooklyn to New Orleans for the day. We were in search of some New Orleans prints for our spare bedroom. Will we ever be done setting up this new house? Hopefully we are about to be complete! Oh what fun it is to be in the French Market area! We parked at Jack's Brewery and set out in hopes of some prints! After what felt like miles of walking and lots of bargaining we managed to come home with 3 new framed prints! whoooppeee. The rain got us as we were about to set out for the car. We did manage to stop off at Veteran's Blvd. for some New Orlean's Seafood on the way home. And what do you think I found???? A NEW JOANN's ARTS AND CRAFTS STORE!!! WHOOOPPPEEEE.... I will certainly be making another road trip back soon to New Orleans. Had Brooklyn not had to be back for work so soon, I'd of hit it today! Oh well..... another day. sigh...... The prints are on the wall and look great! I think I'm ready for a quick nap! tootles....
