Oh where should I begin?  Cleaning the office, the house or weeding?  Hmm, I don't call this blog Diversionary Tactics for nothin'.  Let's divert from the cleaning and weeding and do something that I love!  Stamping!  Stamping! and Stamping!  I'm actually need to work on typing some directions for two of my "by Mail" offerings so I think I'll assign the kids chores of cleaning and weeding!  Baaahhhhaaa, evil laugh!

So, back to the card idea here!  Parental units…there's light at the end of the tunnel.  It's August and thus, almost BACK TO SCHOOL time.  Hooray!  Seriously… it's been a pretty lazy summer and they are past the fighting stage and more in the "I'm not motivated to do those chores stage" so I can't really say I NEED them back at school.  But, Ella's going to be in preschool 3 day/wk for the entire day so I think I'm intrigued with that idea somewhat.  If you have school aged kids or grandkids, YOU MUST order that Recess set from the Summer Mini.  You've only got until August 31st.  Many times stamps are geared for little kids or teens and the bigger kids and tweens are left out.  I have had SO much fun with this set and here's a secret, the coloring on it is easy as the items are so small!  Easy = Fast in my book.

THis is a fun fold, called Sliding Pop-Up card and I'm a little nervous to type the directions for my Stamp By Mailers, can you tell I've been procrastinating for a reason!  I MAY try posting them here in the next day or so if I get them worked out well.  Now don't you procrastinate on ordering this set.  IT"S NOT IN THE NEW CATALOG!!!!  Get it today.

So, that's what yours truly will be working on today.  I'm hoping to get the NEXT stamps by mail details figured out in the next day or so and then let you know what you can expect in the kits.  I love my job and CAN'T wait to share the new things with you.
