Just a quick post today. I started out with the background paper cut into strips and taped down. Then no matter what I added to it I really didn't like. I'm still not too fond of this card but I didn't want to waste the paper (you know what I mean). So this is what I came up with. Oh well. Anyway, I'm off to the LAST graduation party so have a great weekend!

Ride'm Cowgirl!

Here's another great MFT stamp set. I've used this one quite a bit. All the paper is from SU and I used my paisley Cuttlebug folder for the background. So, I'm off to make more graduation cards. Yep, the parties haven't stopped yet. I think I only have 2 more to go. By that time school will start again. Oh, well. I try not to say that 6 letter 's' word to much during the month of July.
Now, I'm off to drop a friend off at the airport and on to a day of errands. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Coffee, Anyone!!

... it's going to be a two cup day!! These stamps are from Stampendous. I purchased them quite a while ago at Archivers and waited until now to finally use them. I'm sure some of you can relate to this sentiment. I know I can and I don't even drink coffee!! Oh Well! So, I've put my stamps aside these days and have been scrapping. As soon as I get the pictures of the pages downloaded I will post them. Now off to do more surfing. Have a great week!

It's Raining Again!!

Yep! Once again it's raining here in ChiTown. I thought this card would be appropriate for a day like today to post. We haven't had a great summer so far. It has either been raining or chilly. Now, I don't mind the chilliness but I'm sure the pools are hurtin' around here. Watch, it'll be scorching hot in August when we go back to school with no air conditioners. That's Murphy Law for you!! Anyway, this card is made all from SU paper, even the polkadot paper. The image is MFT and the flowers are Primas. I tried coloring in her raincoat but that didn't work out so well so then I paper pieced it together. It looks much better. You would think being a first grade teacher I would be good at coloring but I'm not with all these fancy markers and colored pencils I have. Maybe I should take Coloring 101 at the local college!! Well, I'm off to accomplish something today (maybe some scrapbook shopping). Have a great , nonrainy, day and thanks for stopping in.

Hang Ten, Dudes!!

I have been trying really hard to use the stamp sets that I have and not buy any new ones right now. These surf boards are from TAC (which I had this set and haven't even used yet). It's a great stamp set for a boys card. The paper is all SU and I used my Cuttlebug to make the waves and the ribbon is from Target. Anyway, I'd love to be out catching some waves right now but we have had nothing but cool weather around here. Yesterday it rained all day but managed to stop for the fireworks. Yippee!! Back to some normalcy around here now that the holidays and graduation parties are all over. Before you know it school will be opening. I'm sure we'll start to see school supplies any day now on sale at the stores (I try to avoid those aisles as long as I can). So, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Make a Wish

Happy 4th of July eve! I feel like our 4th is over because the parade and fireworks were last night. We couldn't have had better weather. It was in the low 70's and NO humidity. Yippee!!
So today I am planning on scrapping all day. Let's see if that happens! Anyway, I can't remember where I saw this layout, so sorry. The cupcake image is a clear stamp from Inkadinkado. The paper is SU except the pattern paper is from my scrap drawer. This is a short post but I'm off to clean up from the party last night. So have a great holiday weekend!
