Happy Graduation (again)!

Well, this is my last graduation card. I made this one for my neice who graduated from 8th grade. I just love the Bella stamps. They are just perfect. Anyway, this Friday I am going to CHA to check things out. It's not very far from me (about 50 minutes) it's just the traffic getting there can be a little crazy. So, thanks for stopping by.

Happy Day!!

Isn't this little girl cute?! She is from MFT. I couldn't pass her up at the scrapbook store. This is the kind of day we are having around here. It stormed something fierce last night and this morning and now the sun (and humidity) is out. Woo hoo!! Anyway, I'm trying really hard to get my mojo back. I haven't had much desire to stamp or scrap lately. Last night our scrapping group got together and that gave me a little push. So I'm going to give it another try and get busy crafting again (at least get something done before school starts up again). Now I'm off to get my mission done. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!!

Bird of a different feather!

I just love this little bird. I have no idea where it came from, it was in my scrap drawer with all my stamped images from a stamping night out with friends. The card is blank inside because I haven't decided what to us it for yet. Anyway, has the heat gotten to you yet? We haven't been able to turn the a.c. off in several weeks. It's been in the 90's and I hate it!! Sorry, warm weather friends, but I'm just not a heat person. Anyway, take it easy and thanks for stopping by.

Another cute little guy. He is from CTMH. I know it's a simple card but the boys who end up receiving this card really doesn't care what it looks like as long as there is money in it. Well, all the graduation parties are finally over (I think). Now back to baseball. Yep, we are still in the baseball mode and still have 3 more weeks of it (enough already). So, off to get something done around here and then to a game. Have a great week!

Sweet, Little Angel

This is a card I made for a friend of mine who retired from teaching with us. I made a bunch of cards for her as a gift. This was one of them. I knew she had several granddaughters this would be perfect for. So, I went downtown Chicago today to have lunch with some friends. I always seem to forget how awesome it is down there since I don't go very often. We had a great lunch and walked around somewhat. It's a whole different world downtown Chicago than it is in our small suburban town. If you are ever thinking of a vacation spot to go this is a good choice. There is so much to do along the lake front. Anyway, have a great rest of the week and thanks for stopping by.

Polly want a cracker!!

Here's a quick post today. I'm off to work (yuck)! I stamped this bird a long time ago from one of my friends stamps and I even had it colored when I came across it in my "to do" bin. So here it is. Pretty colorful, huh? Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend. We already had our neighborhood parade and fireworks yesterday. It was a perfect day for it. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
