Joke

At McGill University in Montreal, there were four sophomores taking chemistry and all of them had A’s so far. These four friends were so confident that, the weekend before finals, they decided to visit some friends in Quebec City and have a big party. They had a great time but, after all the partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn't make it back to Montreal until early Monday morning.


Rather than taking the final with foggy brains they hoped they could postpone if for at least one day, so they agreed to  explain to their professor why they were late. They said that they visited friends but on the way back they had a flat tire, and that’s why they missed the final. Somewhat skeptical the professor agreed they could make up the final the next day. The guys were excited and relieved. So, they studied really hard that night for the exam.


The next day the Professor placed them in separate rooms and gave them each a test booklet. They quickly answered the first problem worth 5 points with no difficulty. Cool, they thought, we’re going to ace this! 


Then they turned the page. On the second page was written...
"
"
"
"
"
"
"
"
"
"
For 95 points: Which tire?

IN THE TREES - this is a super fun stamp set that can be used for lots of different occasions. You'll find product links with all the details down below all the pictures. I used the SWEET & SASSY FRAMELITS for the little heart - they are RETIRING!

In the video I say that Flirty Flamingo is retiring - OPPS! While it's retiring from the In Color line - it is being added to the BRIGHTS COLLECTION - so no need to worry!!! Sorry about that - SO MUCH INFORMATION TO REMEMBER!

And here's another super cute card using the IN THE TREES stamp set. Who doesn't want a hammock in their back yard when they retire??? DAPPER DEMIN is another color that's retiring - oh how I'm going to miss it! The speckles are from my black marker - watch the video to see the flecking technique.

Stampin' for Autism Blog Hop

www.AStampAbove.com

Autism

THANK YOU SO MUCH for joining me today as we enjoy a blog hop to help raise funds for Autism Research! My daughter Hailey is pursuing a career in education (she's going to be an amazing teacher!) and her part time job as a Line Therapist for the Fox Valley Autism Treatment Program has been so rewarding and extremely challenging! She's been working with two different kids in the area that are severely challenged. When I asked her to provide a little insight - here's what she said:

"Working with children with autism has been a truly amazing experience for me! As a future educator it has opened my eyes not to their disabilities, but to their ABILITIES! From working with children who are non-verbal to children who are  handicapped because of various birth defects, each day spent with them challenges me as a person and is rewarding to know that I make a difference in their social, emotional and physical skills. I am so lucky to be a part of their lives!"

PROUD MOMMA RIGHT HERE!!!

 

And now...here's a little about the organization that your donation will benefit:

ORGANIZATION FOR AUTISM RESEARCH - MISSION

OAR’S MISSION IS TO APPLY RESEARCH TO THE CHALLENGES OF AUTISM.

We strive to use science to address the social, educational, and treatment concerns of self-advocates, parents, autism professionals, and caregivers. The mission of “applying” research to answer questions of daily concern to those living with autism defines our goals and program objectives and shapes our budget.

In addition to funding research, our mission includes the requirements to:

  • Disseminate new and useful information to as many members of the autism community as possible, and
  • Direct all research and programs initiatives toward enhancing the quality of life for individuals with autism.

If you are wondering what we mean by applied research, we define it as research that directly impacts the day-to-day quality of life of learners with autism. It entails the systematic investigation of variables associated with positive outcomes in such areas as education, communication, self care, social skills, employment, behavior, and adult and community living. In this context, it extends to issues related to family support, the efficacy of service delivery systems, and demographic analyses of the autism community.

In simplest terms, applied autism research is “practical research that examines issues and challenges that children and adults with autism and their families face everyday.”

 

Our theme for this hop is to use the colors in the Autism emblem. Here's what I came up with:

OSAT Blog Hop - Pocketful of Posies

OSAT

Welcome to the One Stamp At A Time blog hop featuring POCKETFUL OF POSIES as our theme today! This is perfect - I'm soooo ready for spring and flowers!!! We have 20 blogs to share with you today! Make sure you scroll down to the NEXT button to continue on the hop.

I chose the Daisy Delight stamp set and matching punch combined with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper for a rustic look. What do you think?

www.AStampAbove.com

The stamp set and punch combo are available until the end of May as a bundle - that means you save 10% when you purchase both. After that they will be in the new catalog coming out June 1st - but not as a bundle for the extra savings. I'm so happy this combo is sticking around - it's an easy bundle to create beautiful card with and I think you could make some amazing scrapbook pages too!


www.AStampAbove.com

I have a video tutorial filled with tips showing you how I made these cards here:

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog.

I made the Berry Burst color first and then decided it would be fun to make this card in a variety of different colors. Below is one with Daffodil Delight and the RETIRING Peekaboo Peach - I'm sure going to miss that one! I just put in my order for extra cardstock so I won't run out anytime too soon.


www.AStampAbove.com

And I used Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst for these two:


www.AStampAbove.com

Which one is your favorite???


www.AStampAbove.com

The inside is simple with a little pop of color.

  www.AStampAbove.com

 Dimensions:

  • Card base 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" & scrap
  • Very Vanilla 2 @ 4" x 5-1/4" & scrap
  • Wood Textures Designer Series Paper 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" 

You'll find all the products I used to make these cards down below the blog list. If you need to order anything - just click on any of them to go right to my Stampin' Up! store.

Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week

  www.AStampAbove.com

As soon as I saw this SIMPLE STRIPES EMBOSSING FOLDER in the Occasions Mini Catalog (page 5) I knew I wanted to try making a plaid design with it! I love when products can do more things than they are designed for - don't you?

I decided to combine it with a SNEAK PEEK at the most adorable stamp set ever....ANIMAL OUTING!!! This set will be available in the new catalog coming out June 1st - I received it at the OnStage Event in Milwaukee over the weekend - LUCKY ME RIGHT?

Here's a video showing you how I made plaid and argyle patterns with the SIMPLE STRIPES EMBOSSING FOLDER:

Joke

LITTLE KNOWN FACT:

After digging to a depth of 10 feet last year outside Buffalo, New York, scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 100 years. They came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.
 
Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, a Los Angeles, California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet somewhere just outside Oceanside. Shortly afterward, a story in the LA Times read, "California archaeologists, reporting a finding of 200 year old copper cable, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers."
 
One week later, a local newspaper in Green Bay, Wisconsin reported, "After digging 30 feet deep in his pasture near the community of Sobieski, Wisconsin, Ole Olson, a heck of an engineer and a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Ole has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Wisconsin had already gone wireless."
 
Just makes a person proud to be from Wisconsin!!!
