Martini, Anyone?!

Doesn't this look refreshing? It's only 9 a.m. and the humidity and heat is already on. What a way to spend the day at the old ballpark. We have 2 games scheduled for the day. I may have to pack some of these in the cooler. Can you believe it's already the end of the month? I feel like we just got out of school. I'm sure next week we will begin to see school supply adds in the papers. Uhggg!! So, I'm off to try to get some cards in before we head out for the day. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Flower Help Needed!!

Does anyone know what kind of hanging plant this is? I purchased it at the local grocery store not realizing how beautiful it was going to be. It's so cool. It has these pink pods that look like onions and when they open up they are beautiful purple flowers. I've never even seen this kind of plant before. If anyone knows what it's called please let me know. We are all stumped around here. Well, we are off to the big university to register for classes. But first, the important stuff. There is an outlet mall on the way there that we are going to stop by. Woo hoo!! Have a great day!

I always liked this little guy and his friend. I made this card for my 6year old nephew's birthday. I'm sure he'll like it (especially if there is money in it). The image is a MFT image. We are in full summer mode now and we really haven't had a day without rain. One minute we are wearing shorts and the next minute we have sweatshirts on. The sun is out one minutte and then the clouds move in and it rains and the temps go down. I'm sure it's a matter of time before someone gets sick around here. Tomorrow we are heading to Eastern Illinois University to register for fall classes for the first time. Casey is soooo excited to be going away. However we'll see how excited she will be on move in day in August. (or maybe it will be mom not so excited). Anyway, thanks for stopping by.

Woo Hoo! Summer is Here!!

So, today was the last day of school. Woo Hoo! No more lesson plans (at least for a while), no more papers to grade, no more bulletin boards to change, no more getting up at the crack of dawn AND it's cold and rainy!! What a way to start the summer. Hopefully the rain won't last long and they are calling for high 80's by Thursday. Finally!! Here are two graduation cards I made for some of the many graduates. I try to use their school colors. The paper is all from SU and so is the stamp set. I'm really hoping to get quite a bit of stamping done and tons of scrapping. Since I have a graduate myself we have a ton of pictures to scrap. Anyway, thanks for stopping by and enjoy the beginning of summer!
