Happy Easter

Good evening!  I hope you have had a wonderful Easter today.  We have had a fun weekend, the kids dyed their eggs and decorated them yesterday while I baked Resurrection rolls.  Dalton doesn't remember Easter from last year so he is full of excitement about every aspect.  I used Resurrection eggs last night to tell them the Easter story and when we got to bed Dalton wanted more stories about Jesus.  His favorite is the creation story and knows it really well.  thanks for stopping by!

All Dressed Up

Good morning!  I finally finished all my Easter projects and had a little time to play with the All Dressed Up framelits.  I love these little dresses.  I made three and put them on this cute display and five minutes later a lady came into my shop and bought all three of them so I made three more.

Here is a closeup of the one with the Flower Trim in the Spring catalog .

This is made with the scalloped Crumb Cake tulle.  The Cherry Cobbler one is just like this one, my photo blurred so I will have to retake it.

Bunny Treats

Good morning!  Today's project was made with the treat cups.  I made 22 for a customer last week and 10 today.  I have finished the last of my custom orders, now I can start on treats for Sunday School classes.  My girls are on Spring Break next week and we have a lot of fun things planned so I probably won't get much stamping done.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Easter

 Good morning!  Today I have four little Easter treats that  one of my customers ordered.  She has four grandsons so requested no pink or purple.  I love these images from the Everbunny stamp set and enjoy coloring them.    Got three more custom orders for Easter and I am done!

Tuesday, March 26, 2013


Good afternoon!  Do you ever have days that you can't get anything done...that is today for me.  I did manage to get one card done and now I have to work on some special orders.  So, hope your day is blessed.

This and That

Yes!!!  I am so happy that SU stays up with trends.  I have been so tempted to buy myself a Smash Book but I told my daughter just recently, "Surely SU will offer them in the next catalog" and guess what they are!  But, what is even better is that they aren't waiting until the next catalog, you can order them now.  I saw one up close and personal at regionals and came home and ordered three, one for me and each of my girls.

Not familiar with smash books...well they are scrap booking and journaling for those who have very little time.  I am going to carry mine with me and immediately journal those little moments I don't won't to forget.  Here is the contents of the kit, the journal, the rotary stamp,washi tape(!!), Designer Stickers, and DSP.

Epic Day This and That Journal
Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper
Remember This and That Rotary Stamp
Epic Day This and That Designer Stickers
Epic Day This and That Designer Washi Tape
Epic Day This and That Bundle
Includes the five This and That products listed above. Only available in a bundle until April 30.

As you can see from the details, you can order each item seperately but the better deal is to order the bundle!

Good morning!  I had so much fun at the SU Regional event this past weekend.  I always have inspiration overload after one of these events.  I love taking pictures of all the boards filled with projects but my favorite thing is to swap.  Today I have five of my favorites to share with you.  The first one was done by Stephanie Agan.

      This cute Easter dress card was done by Marilyn McCree who is actually a good friend. 

                                            This one was done by Christine Hendrickson.

                                                         This one didn't have a name on it.

                                                       Cheryl Korsmeyer made this one.

Hope you are inspired by these cards as I was.  I hope to get a little time to stamp today, my To Do list is sure getting in the way.Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for Being a Friend

Good morning!  Today I have another card from my monthly punch class.  This is another Pinterest inspired card.  Thanks for stopping by!

Friday, March 22, 2013

Hang in There

Good morning!  I made this card for my punch class this month.  I saw this card on Pinterest and had to give it a try.  Some of the ladies in my first class saw it and thought it would be "hard" but after making it they agreed it wasn't too bad.  Thanks for stopping by!

Trisomy 21

Good morning!  Today is 3/21 and I am celebrating with my nephew Jamie.  If you aren't familiar with Trisomy 21, I'll explain.  Somy means gene and we all have 2 copies of every gene that makes up who we are but in Downs Syndrome or Trisomy 21 there are three copies of gene 21.  It can cause mild to severe retardation as well as heart and lung  problems and other health issues.  Jamie has been the biggest blessing our family has ever had, just the thought of him always brings a smile to my face and when I am around him I am happy.  He loves music and sings and plays several instruments, his favorite is the guitar.  Jamie was certainly no mistake, God knew we needed him in our lives.  I love you Jamie Bush!

It's almost over......

Just a quick post to remind you that SAB is ending March 22.  If there is still something you really want, you better hurry!  To make it even better, I will be giving FREE shipping and Free taxes on your $50.00 order plus you get to choose one FREE item.  If I get at least six people ordering $50.00, I will also draw for the Hostess benefits. 


Good morning!  I have been playing with the All Dressed Up dies, I am so glad I bought them.  I have so many ideas of things to make such as ballet tutus and wedding dresses and dresses with jackets just to name a few.  These will be perfect for scrap book pages and cards.  for this one, I cut three dresses in Whisper White and then cut 2 of them down so I could add the layers to get the longer length.  Sorry the photo is not the best but all white is hard for me.

Happy Spring


Good morning!  I am pleased to say that I am now rested from my busy weekend, yesterday I was too tired to move but it is amazing what a good nights sleep will do for you.  I have another busy weekend coming up, I am going to SU Regional in St. Louis along with a few friends!  I am taking this card as my swap, actually only the card front.  I think this little frog is adorable from the Spring Sampler stamp set.  I chose a simple design since I am going to try to make 150 of these.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sycamore Street

Good afternoon!  Quick post to show you a cute card using some FREE SAB DSP(that's a whole lotta initials!).  I just noticed in this photo there is no sentiment added to the card, guess I will need to decide what o use it for and then add it.  Thanks for stopping by!

Friday, March 15, 2013


Good morning!  Spectacles...that is what my grandfather called them and when I got new ones recently I told my girls this and they thought it was funny, so that is the new "hot" word around our house right now.  I saw this idea of adding the googly eyes and the nose  by Linda Callahan on  Stampin' Connection(a website for demonstrators) and loved it.  This stamp isn't in a catalog right now but is available as a Single Stamp and can be found here . 

  Item # 132673   $7.95

Hope you have a blessed weekend!

Good afternoon!  I am frantically trying to get ready for The Pink Event which takes place on Saturday.  there is so many things I would like to accomplish but it is doubtful that it will happen.  Today's project was made with the All Dressed Up framelit dies(which I said I wasn't going to buy because I didn't need them....but as you can see I changed my mind).   The DSP is retired, I have used every piece of pink I have. 

Yesterday I had to do something that I have been dreading.  I had to register my Shelby for High School(:  I can't believe she is going to be 15 in October, where did the time go.  Thanks for stopping by!

Thoughts of You

Good morning!  Today's card was stamped with a stamp from Million Dollar Moments which is a Hostess selection from the Spring catalog.  The sentiment is from Rain or Shine and the DSP is from Sunshine and Sprinkles.

And the winner of the blog candy is......Angie H!  I have your address and will get this in the mail to soon.  Thanks to all who left comments, I appreciate you all.

 Good Monday morning!  I just love decorating paint cans to hold treats.  I have an event coming up soon so I am trying to get several of these made.  I used the Everybunny stamp set to decorate the Label framelit.  The trim is Daffodil Delight and is retired. 

Here is what the top of the can looks like.

Guess what today's post is......#1000!  It is hard to believe I have been doing this since 2008.  It has been wonderful getting to know people from all over the world, even though we may never meet in person I count them as friends. 

Here are a couple more things I found, Prima Flowers.  One package has a few missing.  I will draw for a winner tomorrow before I post.

Bottles and Bibs

Good Sunday afternoon!  I am trying so hard to adjust to the time change and a nap would sure help but I know the chances of that happening are very slim. I have another baby shower to work on and it's another girl.  I've had three baby showers this month and they have all been girls.  The Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP is what my customer chose and it coordinates with Melon Mambo.  Thanks for stopping by!

ps....don't forget to leave a comment to be in the drawing for Blog Candy.

Good evening, hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Today's card features several Sale*a*bration items.  It is hard to believe that Sale*a*bration will be over in less than two weeks.  I used the FREE Sycamore Street DSP, the FREE Vine Street embossing folder, and the FREE Sycamore Street ribbon and button on this card.  I order every Friday, if there is still something you want to get from Sale*a*bration let me know.

Birthday Wishes

Good morning!  I am working from home today because the kids are out of school since our high school basketball team is playing  for state championship.  Since I am home, I can't give you the details of this card because I don't even keep a catalog at home.  The kids have planned us a full day though....Dalton wants to go to the park, Shelby wants to sleep in and then go shopping, and Sadie wants to go to Extreme Kids(a gym for kids with inflatables).  Me, I really need to catch up on laundry but I will suppose I will be chasing after the kiddos and trying to keep up.  Thanks for stopping by!

Secret Garden

Good morning!  I apologize for how light my photo turned out, but the Pink Pirouette is light anyway.  The sentiment says Happy Birthday.  I stamped the flowers in VersaMark and then embossed in white, it gives the card a very dainty appearance.
Make sure you leave a comment for the blog candy, I have found a couple more items to go with what I have shown already.  Thanks for stopping by!

Ears to You

Good morning! Aren't these little bunnies so cute.  I always look forward to bunnies hopping through my backyard in Spring.  We live next to a large open field that has a mass of blackberry vines in it and that is where the bunnies live.  The kids love seeing them and last year on Easter one was just outside the window(you can imagine the excitement).  I colored my bunnies to match the DSP which is part of the Bandstand Simply Scrappin' Kit.  The grass border is actually Old Olive Scalloped Dots Ribbon.  The Ears to You stamp is available as a single stamp.
Don't forget to leave comments for the Blog candy to celebrate my 1000 blog post.!

Blog Candy!

Good morning!  As I told you yesterday, I am nearing my 1000th blog post so I wanted to give something away to celebrate.  I have the Sweet Essentials clear mount stamp set, the 2011-2013 In Color Stampin' Write markers, and a package of Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  All you have to do win, is leave one comment each day on any post or by email until I reach #1000.

I didn't realize how low I had let my stash of baby cards get until someone came in to buy a baby girl card and I didn't have one.  So, I got busy making a few yesterday.  I love this stamp set, Two by Two, it is so much fun to color.  I colored both of them the same even though I made one for a boy and one for a girl.  Thanks for stopping by!

1000 Blog Posts!

I just realized that I have published 992 blog post  as of today!  I think this warrants some BIG blog   candy!  I don't know what yet, but start leaving comments today and I will post the prize tomorrow.  You can comment in the comment section or by email once a day for the next 8 days and then I will draw a winner. 

Happy Birthday Banner

Good Monday morning!  Today I have a banner that goes with the Circus Birthday party I am working on.  I cut the pieces with the Labels Framelit dies in real Red and Tempting Turquoise.  The letters were cut using the Bigz Alphabet Simple Letters die(retired).   I still have a few more items to show you but haven't photographed yet.  Thanks for stopping by!

Peas and Carrots

Good afternoon!  We have a new Saturday morning routine at our house and it has really thrown me off.  Sadie's dance class is now at 9:45 and Dalton's gymnastics class is at 10:00.  It will help having them on the same day but is going to take some better planning than I did this week.  I made some of these bunny treats last year and they have been very popular on Pinterest.  I found the Jelly Belly peas and carrots at the Dollar Tree this year which will make them less expensive to make.  I have to make at least 50 for Sunday School classes and Dalton's play group class.  Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Girls

 Good afternoon!  I have finished both the baby showers I have been working on.  I wasn't real fond of the Petite Purse die before and although I love the finished product, it was challenging.  Maybe it is just because my hands have a lot of arthritis and putting the handle on was hard for me.  I put two wrapped Hershey nuggets in each purse.  The DSP is some zebra print I have had for a long time, I just used pink markers to color it.

 And here is the second one.  For this one I used the Two Tags die and glued two of them together and formed a little holder for one Hershey nugget.  I have seen these on a lot of blogs but I'm not sure where it originated.

Here are closeups.  Not very good photographs, we are having a dark, gloomy day.
