TJ 1 on 1 for Aug

This is my card I made for my Technique Junkie 1 on 1 partner Dena. I chose the technique from the April/May 2010 issue called Glitzy Lace. My photo doesn't show the sparkle of the Butterfly very well.
I used Concord Crush, Very Vanilla and Perfect Plum card stock. Perfect Plum ink pad. The new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Pearls galore, lace from my stash, lots of glitter and the Vintage labels stamp set. All the products used for this card are from Stampin Up.

National Banana Split Day-August 25th, 2010

Check out this YouTube video by Youngsdairy on How to Make a
Banana Split:



David Evans Strickler, a 23-year-old apprentice pharmacist at Tassel Pharmacy in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, who enjoyed inventing sundaes at the store's soda fountain, invented the banana-based triple ice cream sundae in 1904. The sundae originally cost 10 cents, twice the price of other sundaes, and caught on with students of nearby Saint Vincent College. News of the sundae spread by word-of-mouth by students, through correspondence, and at professional conventions. Strickler went on to buy the pharmacy, naming it Strickler's Pharmacy. The city of Latrobe celebrated the 100th anniversary of the invention of the banana split in 2004, and in the same year the National Ice Cream Retailers Association (NICRA) certified the city as its birthplace.

You have heard the old saying save the best for last, well I think this will apply for the last Blog Hop for VC Rocks 2010.  I have enjoyed this summer all the cards and projects that all the Rockers have made. Today is the last blog hop of the season and I think everyone will surprise  and delight you at the same time. If you arrived here from the very talented Holly I know you just loved what she made for you.  If not then you can start over at .  

Here is my project:

I decided to share a card I made at my monthly SU meeting. We were challenge to make a card using a kit made up of dsp, card stock, brad, ribbon and was told to design something. This is my design it took me a minute or two figure out what I wanted to do, then wham! it hit me. I just started stamping the same design in the dsp in a row from the Friends Never Fade stamp set with each of the main colors , then I punched a strip of eyelet, punched out 3-scallops out of dsp and made a fan fold flower out of it, added an Antique Brad in the middle, stamped my sentiment and WA-la I am done. I just loved the way it came out and I hope you do too. 

Card stock:       Black, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla
Ink Pads:          Marina Mist, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie
Punches:            Eyelet, Scallop
Stamp Set:       Friends Never Fade                                     
Dsp:                Green House Gala
Brads:             Antique

Now it is time to continue to hop over to Kelly Mayou, where she has made something wonderful for you. Don't forget to leave me a comment I enjoy reading each one.

I received an email with the following and I just had to post it for everyone to see and play the great game with the Chocolate Calculator!

Your Age by Chocolate Math

Don't tell me your age; you'd probably lie anyway - but the HERSHEY Man will know!


This is pretty neat...


It takes less than a minute
Work this out while you read.
Be sure you don't read the bottom until you work it out!
This is not one of those waste of time things, it's FUN!

1. First of all, pick out the number of times a week that YOU WOULD like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10).

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get a calculator.

5. If you already had your birthday this year add 1760... If you haven't, add 1759.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.


The first digit of this is your original number
(i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).

The next TWO numbers are


(Oh YES, it is!!!!!)

This is the only year (2010) it will ever work, so share my blog entry with everyone while it lasts.
