Fresh Fruit

One of my favorite places to go during Summer is the Farmer's Market, not only is it a feast for the eyes with the fruit and veggie displays but the smell of the peaches and apples always catch my attention.  I had to have this stamp set, Fresh Fruit along with the gorgeous Fruit Stand DSP .  The solid stamps along with the outline stamps make the images pop and if that's not has matching dies!  This card along with a basket of fresh peaches would make the perfect thank you for someone special in your life.  Thanks for stopping by.

A Little Foxy

This little fox is so adorable!  We live in a subdivision and a few years ago a family of foxes decided to take up residence across the street from our house.   There was a mommy and three babies and every morning they came in our backyard and drank from a little garden pond there.  When they got a little older, they started to venture further into the subdivision and some people were afraid of them so animal control came and tried to capture them for relocation.  It was no easy task, the foxes outsmarted them on several occasions.  They finally set live traps and removed them but we got to enjoy them from  a distance for a little while.  So I had to have the Fox Builder punch because I plan on making a scrap book page about our little fox adventure.  The good thing about the punch is that you can also create other critters such as a skunk, cat, and a raccoon .  It also coordinates with the Foxy Friends stamp set and the A Little Foxy DSP.

Seaside Shore

This would be the perfect card for my kiddos, as all their days have been going "swimmingly" this summer.  They have lived in the pool this summer.  I used the Seaside Shore stamp set and the By the Shore DSP.
I made the seaweed with the streamer die that comes in Fiesta Time die set, I love to find ways to use dies other than the way they are intended.  Thanks for stopping by!

Ready to Pop


My oldest son Chad told us a few  weeks ago that we are getting a grandbaby!  He didn't want us to tell the news until Katy  had her first doctor appointment and that has been very hard because we are so excited.  They don't know the sex yet but my mind is already busy planning a baby shower.  So, I made a pink one and a blue one of these cute popcorn boxes in the new catalog.  I am going to make up several favor boxes before I show them to Katy because I want her to pick what she likes and not be influenced by what I like.  Thanks for stopping by!

You Made My Day

I have to be outside a lot with the kiddos while they swim but I don't get in the water with them.  Instead I have been working in my flower and vegetable gardens.  I planted some new flowers this year to atrack butterflies and humming birds.  I hadn't seen either until yesterday.  No humming birds yet but lots of butterflies or "flutterbies" as Dalton calls them.  So, I had to make a butterfly card for today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Better Together

I love the bright cheerful colors in the Fiesta Birthday DSP.  I used the Better Together stamp set which is a versatile set that includes sympathy, Christmas, baby, wedding, congratulations plus images to go along with the sentiments.  Thanks for stopping by!

When the new In Colors were released, I loved all of them except the Emerald Envy mainly because I didn't know what to put with it.  Then I got the Moroccan DSP and the color coordination was done for me and now I think I am going to like it.  For this card I used Cajun Craze card stock but it also coordinates with Dapper Denim, Delightful Dijon, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla.  Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty Kitty

My routine is a little off this week, I am working from home since the kids are on Summer break.  Needless to say, I haven't got much stamping done.  I have cooked, cleaned, and even gardened a little.  I managed to finish this card that I started a week ago and love it.  The DSP is from the Festive Birthday and the stamp set is Pretty Kitty.  Thanks for stopping by!

Festive Birthday

Love the bright colors of this new DSP, Festive Birthday, which is part of the Festive Birthday Suite on page 10 of the catalog.  The llama is adorable by himself but the hat really makes him ready for a fiesta.  I cut the hat from one of the sheets of DSP.  Thanks for stopping by!

Flourishing Phrases

Today I have a CAS card made with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and the Flourish Thinlet dies which are bundled for $59.25 clearmount.  This seems a bit pricey until you consider that the stamp set has 18 stamps which includes thank you, sympathy, get well, wedding,  just because, and congratulations plus it has sentiments to go inside the card!  There are 10 dies in the set as well.  Thanks for stopping by!

Just a Note....

I am enjoying the stamps from the new catalog even if everything I do is a little crooked.  I made a little scalloped piece for the bottom of my main panel using one of the banners from the Fiesta Time Framelits  only to glue it on crooked.  I didn't notice it until I had photographed it but was too lazy to fix it and start  over.  I used the Falling Flowers and the Better Together stamp sets with the May Flowers Framelits.   Thanks for stopping by!

You're So Sweet

Have you got your order ready from the new annual catalog yet....because you can order starting today!  I made my order and the one thing that I am most excited to get is the Jar of Love stamp set on page 75 of the catalog.  I pulled out a very old set called All Wrapped up that was one of the first stamps I ever  bought. 

I had to make this one for Dalton.  We were sitting outside on the swing a few nights ago talking and something jumped up between us.  It was a tiny frog, but it scared me and him both.  He soon got over being afraid and was carrying it around trying to put it on me.  He got the biggest kick out of seeing me scream and run from him.  He wanted to take it in the house but that wasn't happening so I told him I would get him a little aquarium to keep things like that in.  His birthday is this month, do you think he might settle for a stamped frog in a jar?  I doubt it but I am still going to try it.

Sit a While

I am reposting this today because for some reason it disappeared from my blog the last time I posted it.  I also had some things reposted from May of 2015.  Not sure how it happened but I got new emails showing the reposts and when I went to my blog to look for them, they had disappeared completely.  Kinda crazy!  Anyway, here is another with the swing from Sitting Here, don't you just love the little puppy!
