Yes, I Am Alive!

Ok, I'm sure some of you have been wondering where I've been. I'm still stamp (although not as much) and scrapping. I went back to school to get my masters in reading education so that seems to take up alot of my time. The first card here I made for a good friend of mine who just had a baby last week or should I say a toddler. He was 10lbs. 23in. long. He is just adorable. The second card I made a long time ago for my daughter. She went away to college and I made several cards to send and guess what. Yep, I still have them. I guess it was the thought that counted. (I did send some cards though). I also created another blog (if anyone is interested) for my classroom. I found some awesome teachers out there that inspired me to start my own school blog. You can get a million wonderful ideas just by looking at their blogs. Anyway, I will try to keep this up more often and as usual thanks for stopping by.

Happy Graduation (again)!

Well, this is my last graduation card. I made this one for my neice who graduated from 8th grade. I just love the Bella stamps. They are just perfect. Anyway, this Friday I am going to CHA to check things out. It's not very far from me (about 50 minutes) it's just the traffic getting there can be a little crazy. So, thanks for stopping by.

Happy Day!!

Isn't this little girl cute?! She is from MFT. I couldn't pass her up at the scrapbook store. This is the kind of day we are having around here. It stormed something fierce last night and this morning and now the sun (and humidity) is out. Woo hoo!! Anyway, I'm trying really hard to get my mojo back. I haven't had much desire to stamp or scrap lately. Last night our scrapping group got together and that gave me a little push. So I'm going to give it another try and get busy crafting again (at least get something done before school starts up again). Now I'm off to get my mission done. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!!

Bird of a different feather!

I just love this little bird. I have no idea where it came from, it was in my scrap drawer with all my stamped images from a stamping night out with friends. The card is blank inside because I haven't decided what to us it for yet. Anyway, has the heat gotten to you yet? We haven't been able to turn the a.c. off in several weeks. It's been in the 90's and I hate it!! Sorry, warm weather friends, but I'm just not a heat person. Anyway, take it easy and thanks for stopping by.

Another cute little guy. He is from CTMH. I know it's a simple card but the boys who end up receiving this card really doesn't care what it looks like as long as there is money in it. Well, all the graduation parties are finally over (I think). Now back to baseball. Yep, we are still in the baseball mode and still have 3 more weeks of it (enough already). So, off to get something done around here and then to a game. Have a great week!

Sweet, Little Angel

This is a card I made for a friend of mine who retired from teaching with us. I made a bunch of cards for her as a gift. This was one of them. I knew she had several granddaughters this would be perfect for. So, I went downtown Chicago today to have lunch with some friends. I always seem to forget how awesome it is down there since I don't go very often. We had a great lunch and walked around somewhat. It's a whole different world downtown Chicago than it is in our small suburban town. If you are ever thinking of a vacation spot to go this is a good choice. There is so much to do along the lake front. Anyway, have a great rest of the week and thanks for stopping by.

Polly want a cracker!!

Here's a quick post today. I'm off to work (yuck)! I stamped this bird a long time ago from one of my friends stamps and I even had it colored when I came across it in my "to do" bin. So here it is. Pretty colorful, huh? Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend. We already had our neighborhood parade and fireworks yesterday. It was a perfect day for it. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Martini, Anyone?!

Doesn't this look refreshing? It's only 9 a.m. and the humidity and heat is already on. What a way to spend the day at the old ballpark. We have 2 games scheduled for the day. I may have to pack some of these in the cooler. Can you believe it's already the end of the month? I feel like we just got out of school. I'm sure next week we will begin to see school supply adds in the papers. Uhggg!! So, I'm off to try to get some cards in before we head out for the day. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Flower Help Needed!!

Does anyone know what kind of hanging plant this is? I purchased it at the local grocery store not realizing how beautiful it was going to be. It's so cool. It has these pink pods that look like onions and when they open up they are beautiful purple flowers. I've never even seen this kind of plant before. If anyone knows what it's called please let me know. We are all stumped around here. Well, we are off to the big university to register for classes. But first, the important stuff. There is an outlet mall on the way there that we are going to stop by. Woo hoo!! Have a great day!

I always liked this little guy and his friend. I made this card for my 6year old nephew's birthday. I'm sure he'll like it (especially if there is money in it). The image is a MFT image. We are in full summer mode now and we really haven't had a day without rain. One minute we are wearing shorts and the next minute we have sweatshirts on. The sun is out one minutte and then the clouds move in and it rains and the temps go down. I'm sure it's a matter of time before someone gets sick around here. Tomorrow we are heading to Eastern Illinois University to register for fall classes for the first time. Casey is soooo excited to be going away. However we'll see how excited she will be on move in day in August. (or maybe it will be mom not so excited). Anyway, thanks for stopping by.
