School is Out!!!

Good Morning,

It's that time....School is Out! For many people it's graduation time as well. I think we all know at least one person graduating this season.

The DT at Sweet Stamping Treats wanted to showcase some graduation cards for those of you who still need to make a card.

I am giving you a sneak peek at one of the new June release images.


Isn't he cute? Tweet is always up to something, LOL!

Be sure to stop by the blog and see what other sneak peeks are there.

Take care.

Hambo Hoedown


Hello, This week's Hambo Hoedown was to use paper piercing. I used the image called Blind Mice for my card this week. My paper piercing is hard to see (the lighting is horrible here when it's raining.) It's there along the bottom red panel.


Anyway, Hopefully this week the rain will clear out of here; otherwise, it's going to be a miserable week.

Take care.

Have you ever heard a Monster Yell?

I've heard monsters yell before. I know what you're thinking...there's no monsters. Hump! A 9 month old puppy locked in a pet cage yelling to get out at 5AM! Can anyone relate to that? If you can you've heard monsters yell. I have one that yells every morning. LOL!

This week's Hambo Hoedown was a sketch challenge. The image I used is called Monster Yell. My daughter says the monster looks like our puppy.



So here is our little monster, Bentley.


Take care.

Ants, Ants everywhere!

You know it's warm when the ants appear overnight. These huge ant hills have popped up along my driveway and the ants are everywhere. Thank goodness they haven't come inside yet. So I will be doing some dreaded yard work this weekend - Yuck! I have yard work more than house work.

Anyway, I decided to share some more ants with you but these are the cute kind. They are courtesy of Doodle Pantry and I don't mind these being everywhere.



Take care.

Bailey loves flowers and so do I. I just can't have real ones around unless I want to sneeze my head off. LOL! But I do love to look at flowers.

Oh baby!

Oh My, I've lost track of time. I had a Mommy Free weekend this weekend, so I am really off schedule. My DD went camping with her Girl Scout troop so it was PARTY time for Momma! LOL! Not really, but I did do things that I wanted to do. I actually missed her though.

Anyway, I wanted to share a cute little baby card I made for Sweet Stamping Treats. I used the adorable image named Theodore. The sentiment is also from Sweet Stamping Treats - Sweet Baby Labels.


Take a peak over at the store. There is a May special going on. All flower images are only a Dollar! All month.

Take care.

Color Challenge at The Stamping Boutique

Hello. This week The Stamping Boutique is hosting a color challenge. They picked the right color too because it's my favorite! We want to see monochromatic BLUE. You can see all the details on the challenge blog.

For my project I used I love you this much - Cynthia . Isn't she adorable? I decided I wanted a little gift bag to hold some chocolates. The candy lasted only a few minutes after this photo was taken. Those are my daughter's favorites and she came and took them out the packaging.





So come out and join the challenge. You don't have to use a Stamping Boutique image but we LOVE it when you do.

Take care.
