I'm Baaaack!!

It does feel like I have been gone forever. The truth is, I felt a little burnt out with making cards and scrapbooking. Ever since school started I feel like I can't catch up with everything (including sleep). The weekends fly by around here, with football games for Danny and all Casey's band competitions all over the city. Before you know it, it's Monday already and back to work. We just have to make it through October and then it should slow down around here. I'm sure there are alot of you out there in cyber world who feel the same. I made this card Saturday night when I did have a few extra minutes before heading out. So, if I don't post quite so often don't think that I forgot about everyone. I'm still looking for my mojo!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Make a Wish!

Just playing around with some SU stamps that I haven't used in a while and this is what I came up with. The paper is pixie pink and the patterned paper is from an old SU package. The make a wish sentiment is from Hanna Stamps. Of course I had to add a little bling on it. Not much other than football and band competitions going on around here, ( oh, I forgot, it hasn't stopped raining since yesterday and it is supposed to continue on through Sunday). Lovely,huh!! Anyway, thanks for stopping by and have a great (dry) weekend.

Happy Birthday!!

An oldie but a goodie! This birthday stamp is one of my first stamps I purchased and I'm still using it. Yipee! This one will never go out of style. The striped paper is from Archivers and the rest of the paper is SU. The ribbon is from Joanne Fabrics. Very simple card but nevertheless a card well done! I don't mean to brag but I get excited when I make a simple card and I'm pretty pleased with it. Corny, I know!! Well, it's the beginning of a new week and it hasn't stopped rain (I mean pouring) since 11:30 this morning. It chilly out so boy, does it feel like a fall day. I'd be fine if the rain would just stop. Anyway, have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

Here's another monogram stamp from JustRite Stamps. I told you, they're great! There is so much you can do with them. Either stamp initials in the middle or another image. Whatever suits your fancy! Anyway, I just came from an awesome party we had with the faculty at school. I work with a great bunch of teachers. We laugh so hard every time we get together outside of school (do you think the drinks help that out?). Either way, we have a blast. Busy weekend coming up, working Bingo, mass in the park, first football came and maybe squeeze in lesson plans. Before you know it its time for school again on Monday morning. Did I mention that I have a great group of kids this year?! They are so sweet. The weather has gotten much cooler so we are able to get more work done. So, for all those teachers out there, I hope you have a great year. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

You Rock!!

Another fun stamp from Hanna Stamps. I don't ride bikes nor does my husband, we don't even have an interest in motorcyclyes but I just loved this stamp! I colored it in with my Prisma pencils and Iknow! I could use a little more practice with them. Oh Well!! The striped paper and the red paper is both from the Archivers packet we received at their latest scrap. The yellow is barely banana and the blue is tempting turquoise. I already have someone in mind for this card. I hope everyone is having a great long weekend, I was super busy making cards yesterday and today I plan on getting a ton of school work done real early so I can stamp some more. I'm hoping to get a bunch of cards made so I have plenty to post for the next week or so. Once the weeks is here it's so hard to get any stamping done, with school, football, and band competitions. I sure don't remember running my parents ragged with all these activities when we were young (even with 11 children). I'm sure I just didn't see how busy they were , either that or they just threw in the towel by the time the last several of us came around (especially #9, that's me), LOL!! So, have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
