What a Cutie Pie!

You can never have enough birthday cards for kids. Every time I send one birthday card out low and behold another birthday sneaks up. I guess that comes with being from a family of 11 children and oodles of nephews and neices. So I like to stock up on birthday cards. Now sending them is another story. Anyway, This cutie pie girl stamp is from a CTMH set. I have no homework tonight and it's pouring outside (thank God it's not snow!) so I guess it's a great night to scrap. I'm off to get something done tonight!! Thanks for stopping in!!

Looking For Spring!!

I just the SU stamp set with all the different petals (I'm not sure the name of it). I borrowed it from a fellow stamper and this is what I came up with (so far). I decided to stamp a sentiment on the left side when I am ready to use it, I just couldn't decide what I wanted it for. The paper is SU riding hood red and the petals were stamped on paper from an Archivers pack. Anyway, on to more stampin'.
By the way, here in Chicago we were teased the last two weeks with some pretty good weather, 50's and 60's. However, yesterday was another story. We had another snow storm and more snow was dropped on us. ENOUGH WITH THE SNOW! Thank goodness we purchased a snowblower this past fall. So have a great week and I am going to pray that all this melts as fast as it came. Thanks for stopping by!!

Well, here is my last card I have made to post. I had better get busy stampin'. We are off school this Monday so I have plans to stamp with a friend of mine. Woo Hoo! So, if you are from Illinois then tomorrow is a special day around here. It is Abe Lincoln's 200 birthday. My school has many awesome activities planned for the day, including balloons all throughout the school. At 12:00 noon there will be bells ringing statewide. It's sort a cool. My class is really getting into Abe Lincoln and having a blast with fun facts about him. I know, I probably sound corny, but that's the teacher in me. Oh and by the way it's also my son's birthday tomorrow. He will be 14 and he has the "I'm so cool" attitude that goes along with it. Fun, huh?! I don't know how my parents made it through 11 teenagers. Anyway, have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Sweet Treats

Just a quick post today. It's been a long day and these old bones are heading to bed. Today was the 100th day of school and in first grade it's a BIG deal . Our children came to school dressed up like they were 100 years old. What a hoot!! You should have seen them, canes, walkers, housecoats and powder in their hair to make it look gray. We even had a visit by a 100 year old great grandma. Then we strolled through all the classrooms throught the school and a ton of fun 100 day activities in the afternoon. It was a blast and the children really enjoy the day. Now only 76 more days left.
This card isn't one of my favorites. The image is a fun one from MFT but I just don't like the colors or even the way it turned out. I thought I would post it anyway because I am running low again on cards. So, thanks for stopping by and a have a great rest of the week!!
