Flower Garden



Good afternoon!  Today's project is a set of 3x3 cards.  I have several others made up in different colors and will box them together in a set along with a bunch of unattached sentiments.  I leave the sentiments off until the occasion arises to use one.  I used a die(I think it was Fun Flowers) to cut the flowers and the leaf is from the Blossom builder punch..  Hope to get all my special orders finished this week and then I can concentrate on building my supply of cards back.  Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Boy


Good evening!  It has been a busy few days for me.  I have several projects going that are near completion and after they are finished I will get back to posting on a regular basis.  Today's project was a fun one, I love to make baby things.  This was for a friend whose daughter is having a boy and these are for the shower.  I used various papers in blue, yellow and green and mounted the framelit die cut on another white die cut.  The boat is from Nursery Necessities which is retired but still a favorite.  Thanks for stopping by!

You've Got a Friend in Me


Good morning!  Today's post is one of the cards we did at a recent punch class.  I saw a card with a bird house on it using the Photo Corner punch so I had to give it a try.  I am an avid bird watcher so anything to do with birds appeals to me.  Thanks for stopping by!

MOJO Monday Sunshine





Good Monday morning!  Today I decided to play along with the Mojo Monday sketch which is by Mary Fish.  I had some daisy die cuts left over from another project so decided to use them.  The DSP is from the Summer Smooches collection which you can purchase now.  Thanks for stopping by!

For You



Good morning!  Just when I think I am caught up on commitments, a new one comes along.  My new commitment is bittersweet to say the least.  My son is attempting to be a single parent to our sweet Dalton.  This is a very hard job for any dad to do but his job makes it even harder because he works swing shifts,  a week of day shift, then a week of evening shift, and then a week of nights.  So, I am helping as much as I can, he feels bad having to leave him so much but he has no other option right now.  That being said, I will not be able to post here on a regular basis.  I hope to schedule a whole week in advance but that may change.

Today I have my April "thank you" cards for my customers(just realized I hadn't downloaded it from my camera until today.)  I used the Scalloped Circle die in Very Vanilla.  The DSP is from the Everyday Enchantment which was a SAB item.  The larger butterfly is a punch and the smaller one is from the butterfly sizzlit.  Thanks for stopping by!

Last Chance List!




Good Monday morning!  Seems like forever since I have been able to stamp or post here.  So much going on...most of last week was taken up with taxes and then getting ready for VBS.  I am teaching a class in the Saline Baptist Association VBS clinic tomorrow night so if you are teaching crafts during VBS come join us.  I love the theme this year, it is Amazing Wonders, Aviation.  The craft destination is at the Great Barrier Reef which is so fun to decorate and make crafts for.


But this is a stamping blog so on to some stamping news(no project yet, check back later today for that).  Stampin' Up is making some changes with the new catalog that will be coming out in June.  And this time, I have to say they are really good.  Instead of several mini catalogs a year plus a main catalog, we will now have a smaller Idea Book & Catalog plus two minis which will have more plus last longer.  The IB&C will be smaller so therefore a lot of stamp sets will be retired starting yesterday.  To see the list, click here .  The accessory list will be available April 25 and I will share a link to it then.  The last day to order from this list will be May 31, but a lot of the items will sell out before then so don't wait.

I know a lot of you have long wish list still from this catalog and are also anxious to see what is in the next one......so here is a SPECIAL OFFER just for you....if you buy a minimum of $100.00 from the retired list in one order(either online or from me)  you will get a  $20.00 gift certificate toward a new set from the NEW catalog!!!

Thank You

Good morning and a good morning it is since the taxes are finally done.  I spent the last two days getting everything together so no stamping was done.  But I did want to drop in and let you know who the winner was of the drawing I had while I was away.    The winner is Monica L. from Virginia!  Monica actually found me on Pinterest and ordered the supplies to make one of the cards I had on there.  I think that is so cool!
Thanks to all who ordered while I was away, you will get your freebies in the mail very soon.  Thanks for stopping by!

To My Friend

Good morning!  Today I have another card made with Summer Smooches paper and Bright Blossoms stamps.

Peas and Carrots

Good morning!  I just had to show you these Jelly Belly peas and carrots...they are so cute.  I made up a whole bunch of these last week and they sold really fast, in fact I had to grab this one and take a picture before the lady who bought it left with it.  My bunny was made with the Top note die and various punches.


As promised, I have a special to announce...anyone who does an online order through me while I am gone will receive 20% off their order.  I will have to mail you a refund check for the 20% when I return.  Happy shopping!

Do You Love Summer Smooches?

Good afternoon!  I have been absent for a few days,  my girls are on Spring Break and we have been home catching up on a few things around the house.  We are heading out of town for a few days but I wanted to make sure you knew about a limited time offer from Stampin Up.  This paper, Summer Smooches, is  so pretty.  The stamp set Bright Blossoms is very trendy not to mention the fabric and fabric covered brads that coordinate with the paper. Make sure you click here to take you to a link that will have all the prices and details.




This card was made with paper from the Summer Smooches and the stamps are from Bright Blossoms stamp set.  Make sure you check back everyday from now until April 9 to see the specials I will be offering while I am away as well as more samples using these products.  Thanks for stopping by!
