Back to School Time!

It's almost back to school time!  I have to admit I am ready to send my sweet munchkins back to school.  I really enjoy them being at home except they are not content just being home, we stay on the go to somewhere... anywhere.  I took them to St. Louis for the weekend and spent way too much money entertaining them and buying back to school supplies and clothes.  I made a few cards to give to the littles for their new teachers, they will be in second grade this year. Shelby will be a college freshmen and Sadie will be in eighth grade, time is flying by too fast.   Thanks for stopping by!

Peace on Earth

Today I have another Holiday Catalog sneak peek.  I can't wait to get the new catalog and order from it.  I love making Christmas cards and the little snippets I have seen of the  Holiday catalog so far are awesome.  Thanks for stopping by!

Carols of Christmas

I feel like I am already behind, I have usually started Christmas cards before now but my kids have kept me on the go all Summer.  We are headed out of town this weekend for a short trip and again next weekend and then hopefully some time at  home will happen.  This card was made using the Carols of Christmas suite that is in the new Holiday catalog available soon.  BUT you don't have to wait until the new catalog comes out!!!!  You can order it starting in August!

Grown with Love

It has been a while since I posted anything because it is Summer and my kiddos think that means go somewhere and do something every day.  I have been able to get a few classes in and this card is from one of them.  I used the Grown with Love stamp set and the matching Garden Grown Framelits.
Off to entertain the kids, I think a movie sounds good since it is so hot outside.

This Little Piggy

This stamp set was close to the top of my list of favorites when the new catalog came out.  I love the cuteness factor but I also like that I have a story to scrapbook about that I can use this set for as well.  I grew up on a farm and we raised lots of different kinds of animals but the pigs were my favorite and after all I was named after a pig.  My parents couldn't decide on a name for me because I was their first and they just knew I was going to be a boy, so they had no girl names picked out.  The doctor finally gave them 10 minutes to decide on something so my dad picked up a magazine in the room and started looking through it.  It just happened to be a farming magazine and there was a cartoon in it about a pig named Sandy, so I was named Sandra Lynn.

Falling Flowers

Today's card is somewhat a CASE of a card I saw on Pinterest but evidently didn't pin it because now I can't find it.  I used the Falling Flowers stamp set and the May flowers Framelit dies.  I think this is the first time I have used this set and I got it when last years annual catalog first came out.  I am going to do better....I have good intentions but somehow don't see them through. I have set a goal to ink up every stamp I have that hasn't seen ink before the end of 2017.  Wish me luck!

Thanks a Latte

I am not much of a coffee drinker, usually one cup in the morning when it is cold outside, but I always purchase any stamps related to coffee.  Coffee is a reminder of my mother, she would have a cup of coffee in her hand from the time she got out of bed until she went back to bed at night.  She used a lot of creamer in hers but never any sweetner. Thanks for stopping by!
