Happy bee day!

The bee trio stamp came from stampendous. I have seen so many really cute cards make with this stamp that I just had to get it. I'm not thrilled with the card but the bees are cute. So I had to post this one. We have been really busy all weekend with band competitions and football and I just have a few minutes so I thought I would post something. I did get a chance last night to make a few Halloween cards ( inbetween waiting to pick one kid from band and chasing down the other one) . They will be posted real soon. Have a great day!

Monkey Business

This little monkey is so cute. It is from Stampendous. The patterned paper is from DCWV
and the yellow is from Archivers. I colored him in with my new Prisma watercolor pencils. The ribbon is from Michaels. I was at Michaels today scoping out the place ( God knows I don't need another thing right now) and they just filled up their dollar bin with all new $1 acrylic stamps. So of course I had to buy a few. They had some new ones that I haven't seen yet. I think they are gradually releasing them just like all the other companies do. Anyway, have a great weekend and thanks for visiting.

Enjoy Your Day!

I am having a blast using the paper from the mega pack I bought at Costco. It is from My Minds Eye. The Bella image is from my friend Kim at craftyme. I sent this card to a good friend of mine from college for her birthday. I just hope she gets it in time. Thanks for visiting and Enjoy Your Day!!

Time for Bubbles

This image is what I needed after this week of school. The heat came back and we really lost their attention . You know you have lost them when they are all laying the heads down on their desks and asking how many more hours until we go home. I even felt that way. I haven't even had much of a chance to stamp this week so I was going through stampers withdrawal, you know what I mean! Anyway, I'm off to a TAC party hosted by Kim at Craftyme. I'm looking forward to checking out their awesome stamps.
The little lady in the bathtub is from Whipper Snapper Designs, the striped paper is My Minds Eye and the blue is tempting turquoise from SU. The saying and bottle and glass is from MFT.
I'm hoping to have some more to post from this weekend , since it is so hard to get anything done during the week. Enjoy!

Happy Haunting

YIPPEE!! The weekend is here! This is a card I made last year for the teachers at school. I had quite a few orders for it. I thought I would share it with you. The ghosts are made from my Sizzix machine. Tomorrow is a scrapping and stamping night. The girls are coming over and we're going to scrap to our hearts desire ( and gossip and eat). I also just received the halloween cards from the swap I was in from Kim at Craftyme. They are awesome. I'll post them as soon as I get the camera going. I also received the stamps I ordered from PaperPretties with the gift certificate I won over at Stampin with Julie. So I have plenty to keep me busy this weekend.
Hopefully I'll have alot to post . Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Weight Management

How could anyone resist this stamp?! This is another Bugawumps stamp I bought over the weekend. I laughed so hard when I saw it and then they also sell the stamp with the saying. It
goes perfect together. I feel like this card all the time. I do a lot of groaning . Anyway, the pink polka dot paper came from a HUGE packet of
paper I bought at Costco. It was a double pack with 360 sheets from My Minds Eye. The blue paper came from Archivers and the brown is chocolate from SU. I used my Marvy scallop punches and added a few brads. Viola! There I have it, a card I can groan about! You should really check out the website for the Mugawumps, it's just
Enjoy! I'm off to meet the teacher night at my school. I get so nervous doing this year after year. Go figure!!

I was so excited yesterday. The scrapbook and rubber stamp expo was here. I saw so many awesome stamps that my head was spinning. I even did some make and takes. I went by myself but ran into many other stampers I know. The stamp on this card is from a company called Bugawump. They were so cute I had to get a few of them. Here is the first of three cards I made. The paper is (of course) SU and the ribbon is from M. I just love this ribbon so I bought it in several colors. I pierced the blue paper and used a Prima flower. Enjoy and thanks for visisting!

Ghostly Greetings

I really don't have much time but I wanted to post something today. The ghost stamp came from Penny Black and the paper is from SU. The ribbon is from Michaels. I colored the ghosts in with my SU markers, I tried to use the Prismas but it just didn't look vibrant enough.
Have a great (hot and muggy) day!

It was a BEAUTIFUL day!!

I can't believe I have energy to blog. Today was a gorgeous day, 85degrees and sunny and breezy. We took a road trip to Saugatuck, Michigan. It is a 2 hour ride from here but it was
worth it. Saugatuck is a quaint little town on an inlet of Lake Michigan. There are hundreds of cute little shops and eateries and ice cream parlors. We had lunch at a restaurant right on the water and we sat outside watching all the yachts go by. We did do some shopping but all I bought was a single dip cone, but that is good enough , isn't it?!!
I made this card last night. It is extremely bright so that is why I took the picture outside (with my sunglasses on). The stamp set is from MFT and the green paper is gable green from SU.
The rest is from my scrap drawer, which I am not real good about keeping track of what paper is what. The flower is a Prima (of couse, what other kind is there).
Well tomorrow , believe it or not we are going apple picking with several other families. We go every year on Labor Day weekend. The Gala apples are ready to be picked and there is no one else there. We have a blast! I think the best part is the apple donuts. They are awesome!
Anyway, have a great rest of the weekend and thanks for visiting!!
