This card was made for a friend who asked me to make her a few thank you cards. Well this is what I came up with. This little guy is so cute! I used SU purely pomegranite and the flower paper is also from SU. The white paper was Cuttlebugged. The little flower stamp was from one of the dollar stamp sets from Michaels and I added a little Bling to the middle of the flower. I may have to make a batch of these to keep on hand. Well, school is out for the weekend. I know it is only Thursday but we always have this Friday off. It's great. 4 days off already, Yipee!! More time to stamp!!

I haven't had a chance to stamp since the weekend because of school. Boy, what a week we
had! It has been back in the 90's and our school is overheated. I do have several orders already from fellow teachers. So that is how I will spend my weekend. (Isn't that ashame)!
TA TA for now!!

My Favorite Things. I have a very hard time adhering the brick brack to the paper every time I use it. Any ideas? I used the mini dots but they always seem not to stick for very long.
Well, I'm off to Home Depot for some Gamsol and then lesson plans. Doesn't that sound like fun!
I always tell myself that if I can get my school work done early enough then I can head over to my stamping table . So off I go! (Puff, Puff)!! Have a great week!

This is the card I created for the fall swap over at Craftyme . I love making Halloween cards. I traced the shoe pattern from the magazine Paper Crafts last fall. The green paper is from Karen Foster and the polka dots paper is from Reminisce and the orange paper came from Archivers and doesn't have a name on it. I used the SU tag punch and the saying is from a set is from a packet of stamps from Craft Essentials which I bought from JoAnn's. Can you tell that I glittered the star? When I made this card last year it sold like hotcakes at school. I guess I'll have to be making more for this year. This was a fun card to make. I was busy making several cards last night so I'll be posting them real soon.
Finally the weather has broke. I am sitting here with a sweatshirt on and that is great (however it is raining). School starts this week and my room is all ready, I'm not sure I am. But I guess I have no choice. I wish all blogging teachers GOOD LUCK this year and have a great one!!

As soon as my MFT order came I just had to get busy. This card is for a very good friend of mine. On Friday or Saturday nights we shop together. Usually one of us spends the money while the other one is broke. By shopping I mean, Walmart, Target, Khols or Carsons. Those are our Friday night hangouts. Sounds exciting, doesn't it!! Anyway, I used SU paper, purely
pomegranite and the polka dot paper is from their spring sample pack. The blue paper is from Die Cuts with a View packet and the ribbon is from American Crafts. It is hard to tell but I pierced the blue paper to let some of the white show through. The inside of this card says,
Good Friends are Priceless! It's perfect for her. Enjoy and have a great Tuesday(my last official day off for the summer)!!

Well, we are still swealtering in the 90's and fairly high humidity out here in the midwest. I know it is August and this happens quite often but we need a break this week because some schools are starting with no air ( like my school)
Oh Well! I'll stop complaining now and start scrapping!
Have a great Sunday!!

Another Bella! This one is the dryabella stamp.The blue paper came from Archivers and doesn't have a name for it. The green flower paper is from Die Cuts with a View the Pocket full of Posies Stack (which I love using). The saying is also from Bella and the ribbon is from M. This would be a cute teenager card since it reminds me of my daughter's favorite past time (washing and drying and trying to get her hair perfect) . How come I don't remember me acting that way as a teenager?! Enjoy and stay cool!!

When I saw this stamp at Archivers of course I just had to have it. It's soooo cute! The paper is SU, only orange and green gable. The diamond paper is from Die Cuts With a View packet. the ribbon is from M and I colored it in with my SU pencils. I used my flower cuttlebug folder on the orange paper.
It's another hot one around here! I just received my new class list and ON NO!! I have 29 first graders, 19 boys and 10 girls. What an interesting year this should be. (Pray for me).

My brother has commented that all the
cards I make are femine. I should make a"manly" card. Well, here is my manlycard.
Since his birthday is coming up can you guess
which card he is getting. The stamp is from
Great Impressions and the fish is from SU ,
the All Wrapped Up set and I used the CTMH
alpabet set for the word outdoors. The fish is
on with a pop up. The rest of the supplies came from my scrap drawer.

I think I will have to make several of these cards for my stash for school . I just received my letter from school and YUCK! I have one more week off before I have to go in. This weather had better break, it's way too hot since we have no air conditioning. It is literally like an oven in class. I have been known to take my class into the church with the air on and have class in there.You won't believe how good they are then.
It's kind of nice.
Has everyone checked out the new stamp sets over at MFT? The Let's Hear it for the Boys set is awesome! It sure reminds me of a few guys I know. How about you?!! Of course I had to order it--te he
Well, we're off to the pool! Have a great scorching day!!

- I can't stamp or scrap without a bowl of sweedish fish handy.
- I HATE peas, even the smell of them cooking.
- I can't sit through a movie at home (I always fall asleep) .
- I am so glad baseball season is over!
- I've gotten so addicted to stamping this summer that I am now ordering products on line (Oh No)!
- In the seven years I have been at my new school I have gone through 3 different teaching partners. I sure hope it's not my jokes that scare them away!! (they all moved out of town.)
- Most of the time I pay for my scrapping and stamping products with cash so my husband doesn't know how much I spend. Come on, I'm sure I'm not the only one who does that!
So, here is some more dirt on me. I hope it doesn't scare anyone away!!
