A Sweet Treat

Here is my first Valentine card I made this year. The ice cream image is from a MFT stamp set.
The patterned paper is from DCWV and the red is riding hood red from SU. This card makes you want some ice cream, doesn't it?! Nope, not me! I would much rather have a bowl of popcorn, believe it or not. Don't get me wrong, I do like ice cream but it doesn't like me, so I just stay away from it. I guess it's not a terrible thing, huh! Well, the week is almost over. It's been so crazy at school. This was Catholic Schools Week so we don't have regular schedules and that really throws the kids off. Especially when they are out of uniform. The kids have a blast with all the extras planned but it's so good to get back to normal . Needless to say, Friday can't come soon enough. I plan on going out to dinner Saturday with our scrappin' group for some good eats and lots of laughs. So have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Cake Anyone?

Here is one of my favorite SU sets. This guy is so funny! I colored him in with my prisma pencils but as you can tell I'm still not the best with hiding the lines. Go figure, a first grade teacher and she can't color well. who would have thunk!! At least I stayed in the lines. Anyway, the deep freeze is back. Today and tomorrow is supposed to be a high of 11. I know this is Chicago in the winter but it's getting old by now and we need some temps at least in the 30's . Oh well some day it will come. So, I'm off to more blog hopping , errands and then Bingo! Sounds fun, huh? Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Fun in the Sun!

Last Thursday, while sitting and sulking about how cold it was outside (and my school was NOT called off for Friday) I decided to make a "warm" card. This is what I came up with. I'm not too sure where the stamp is from. The paper is from SU except the flower paper which is from DCWV. It did make me warm up a little. The freezing temps have warmed up a little. Today is a day off because of MLK. Thanks, MLK!! Anyway, if you would like to see a picture of the cutest cheerleaders in the world head on over to Michele's blog at The girls are adorable! I can't wait to go to one of their games. So that's it for today. I'm off to enjoy the day off buy running errands and stamping. Happy Inauguration Eve!!

...and certainly not the weather here in Chi Town. The temperatures have been -17 with wind chills -30 or so. Imagine that, you fellow bloggers who live in a warm place!! I think every school had called off for the last two days EXCEPT mine. Yep! We had to go in. So I warmed up my car for 20 minutes each day, bundled up and headed to the trenches. Thank goodness I have a wonderful class this year and I enjoy them. That did make it a little easier to go in. Today we are going to be in the 20's but the wind is already picking up. Sheeesh! I'm ready for summer(so I can complain about the heat(tehe). Anyway, here is another card I made for a friend. The stamp is a Bella, red riding hood paper from SU and the circle paper is from DCWV pack we were given at a scrap at Archivers. The good thing about this paper is that it's peel and stick. Just peel it off and stick it right on (but once it's down it's down, no adjusting). I feel like I have my mojo back so I plan on getting more stamping done this weekend so I have more to post. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Cheers To You!

Cheers! What's there to cheer about? All the snow we've been getting around here. I feel like we truly live in the arctic. We have been having snowstorm after snowstorm since the beginning of December and now tonight and the next several days is supposed to be 20 to 30 degrees below zero. Unbelievable!! Maybe we will have a day off school tomorrow, fat chance! So I think we all are due for a drink or two, don't you?! This stamp is from Rubbernecker, the paper is all SU including the flower paper. This card was made for a friend who has a daughter turning 21. Anyway, I'm hoping to get more stamping in since we will be stuck inside for the next few days and what else is there to do but stamp! So, happy stamping and thanks for stopping by (even though I've had some really boring posts lately).

Snow Bunny

I know, I was in a hurry when I posted this card. This bunny set is soooo cute and from MFT. This card is much cuter in person than here. I plan on using it as a Valentine card. I guess I had better get going on those cards. So, thanks for stopping by even though I haven't had much posted lately. I really trying to get more done. Stay warm!!

My first post of the new year and FINALLY something to post, woo hoo!! I made this card about 2 two weeks ago when I had five minutes to spare. I thought I would make a bunch of cards and use as gifts for some friends but that never happened, go figure!! This is a Hanna stamp, one of my favorites, mind you. The paper is SU, pixie pink and chocolate brown, the ribbon is from Target. Today I am hoping to get some stamping done with a good friend of mine, we both need to make thank you cards for the kids at school. So that is how I will spend my new years day. How about you? Have a great new years and wonderful 2009!!
