At Home


This card didn't turn out exactly how I planned but anyway...I wanted to add the sleeping puppy from the stamp set Just Sitting Here but really couldn't decide where to put him.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Retirement





I have a sweet friend who I met when I lived in Alabama who is retiring so I made this card for her.  She owns a condo in Gulf Shores and  will be moving there,  This is the last scrap of this DSP I have left, sure wish Stampin'  Up! would keep these favorites around longer than one catalog, I am sure they would be a hit.  Thanks for stopping by!

Weather Together


I am trying to get back in the groove, I feel I am so far behind at home and at my shop.  I did get most of the laundry done this morning, luckily we have a washer and dryer in the condo so I didn't have as much from the trip but since the guys stayed home this trip  I had to do their laundry from two weeks.  I don't have many items from the new catalog yet, just some of the things we got to preorder.  This is the Weather Together stamp set and the Umbrella Weather Framelits.  Thanks for stopping by!

Vacation's Over


Vacation is over and I am exhausted but we had a blast.  The reason for going was to see my Shelby play in the band.  She is the second one from the right in this picture.  They did such a good job! 


 
Ava has to always get a picture in front of the castle.


This was Dalton's favorite part, it is hard to see but there are animals carved into this tree and they have a video projected onto it periodically with animals such as deer and lions that interact.  It was neat during the day but we went back a second time at night and it was amazing.


They loved Disney but after four days of walking so much they were ready to go to the beach.



The big girls really bonded during this trip, they have always been close but Sadie can be the bratty younger sister sometimes.  They are five years apart but Sadie is already taller than Shelby.  The biggest arguments are over clothes, Sadie "borrows" Shelby's clothes without asking and then Shelby sees her wearing them and the fight is on.




I didn't get many pictures of all four of them together.

Daisy Love


Stampin' Up! has announced that the Daisy Punch will be unorderable after tomorrow until they can replenish their stock.  I knew it would be popular when I got to preview the catalog several months ago.  In fact, it was my #1 pick when we were asked to list our top picks.  As soon as it is replenished, it will be orderable again.  Thanks for stopping by!

On Vacation

Good morning from sunny Daytona Beach😊  I thought I should let you know that I haven't quit blogging, just on an extended vacation.  We left Disney yesterday, our high school band did an awesome job leading the Disney Parade.  I was worn out, the little kiddos didn't want to take the time to even sleep. My plan is to be back home and stamping again by the June 19, in the meantime if you need to order you can use the Order online link at the upper right hand corner of my blog.  Thanks for stopping by!

Serene Silhouettes

💮

Today's card is a case of this  card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2388398.  I smudged mine a little so I added the butterflies to cover it up.  This is a retired set called Serene Silhouettes.  Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy the Little Things


Sorry my photo isn't very good, we are having a super gloomy day here is southern Illinois.  I really like this daisy punch and stamp set which will be available in the new annual catalog starting June 1. There is even DSP to match as well.  Thanks for stopping by!

Bride to Be


This is the third card we made at this month's bundle class.  I used the retired dress die and added the t-shirt to the top of it to make it look like a blouse and skirt.

Groovy


I don't know what  it is about tie dyed t-shirts but my kids have always loved making and wearing them.  One my girls was looking through the Occasions catalog and saw the Custom Tee and Tie Died set and told me I had to order it.  It was on my "can live without it list" but that changed so here is what I came up with.  The Groovy is part of  a very old stamp set from 2001 I think but one that I have used a lot for birthday parties so I pulled it out for this card.  On the inside I used another stamp from this set that says "Hippie Birthday.   Love how it turned out.  Thanks for stopping by!
