{ Shimmerz swap, The Simple Woman's Daybook, CPS# 123 }

The Impression Obsession Design Team is letting the Shimmerz fly all this week. It's an official IO/Shimmerz DT swap. Check out the fun and see what kind of sparkle these teams create when Impression Obsession stamps collide with Shimmerz paints!

Monday creations are from Julie Koerber and Dina Kowal. You can connect to their cards directly by clicking on their names, or you can check out the IO blog for the sneak peaks and news about the week. Shirley will be updating the IO blog daily with photos and links. Tomorrow, she will be sharing a Shimmerz card, as well.

Don't forget to check out the Shimmerz Blog for their DT's creations with Shimmerz and IO stamps!!!

For my card I used the Flower Pitcher (F2290). I colored the image with chalk. I painted over my image with Bubble Gum, Golden Wheat and December Sky. The colors are awesome, but so are the names ! I inked the edges, tore the paper, added stitching, buttons, floss and ribbon. The background paper is Amy Butler K&Company. The sentiment is from Express Yourself (WP22) stamp set. I used CPS #123 for this card.

Here is a close up of the shimmer. What do you think? This is my first time playing with Shimmerz.

Now, for my Simple Woman's Daybook:

For today...(Monday around 7:15 pm)

Outside my window...sun.

I am thinking...how I would love a bath with lots of bubbles.

I am thankful for...my sweet boy who goes to bed without any problems.

From the kitchen...Brisket with baked beans.

I am wearing...cherry pajama bottoms and a t-shirt.

I am creating...finished my Shimmerz card earlier today.

I am going...to get the clothes out of the dryer.

I am reading...August CK.

I am hoping...the clothes in the dryer are not wrinkled.

I am hearing...Alex singing in his bed.

Around the house...toys to put away, again.

One of my favorite things...listening to Alex trying to communicate more and more each day.

A few plans for the rest of the week...pretty much same as last week...park, library, store, park, maybe the pool. I would love to go to the Ikea and get those shelves for Alex's closet so we can organize his toys.

A photo to share... don't laugh. This is me, two years ago, at my first OB appointment.
