A Big Thanks!

I just wanted to give Laura a BIG THANKS! She has been so sweet to me and a true inspiration. She also sent me a little something in the mail which was such a surprise:) I had asked her how she made one of her little bags and she sent it to me with a little card:) Made my day, so thanks again Laura for everything!

Time Off!

Sorry I've been out of the blogging world lately. We still have so many fires burning around us due to all the lightning strikes last weekend:( Not to mention the fires, I'm planning my sister-in-laws baby shower that's in a couple of weeks and WOW it's a lot of work. Well I'm making it a little harder than it needs to be but it's the fun kind! I made all the invitations and I'm making all the party favors and much more fun stuff that I think she will appreciate. For the invitations I did a gate fold card. I used SU! Certainly Celery and Apricot Appeal as my base colors and I used a DP by Colorbok called Sage and Yellow Stripe. I used my oval nesties and scalloped nesties to pop up my centerpiece that had my cute little animals stamped on:) For the stamped images I used Playful Animals by Hero Arts. My sister-in-law is doing an animal theme for the baby room so this stamp set was perfect. I stamped the image with Ranger Ink and colored them in with watercolor pencils and then blended with my blender pen. The Baby Shower sentiment is from a Fiskars set I bought a long time ago. I stamped the DP with the banana leaf... I think it's a banana leaf:), and did the same to the inside of the invite with all the information. I really like the way they turned out and she was so surprised when she got hers in the mail, she loved it! That makes it all worth it:)

Hopefully it won't take me this long to post again:) Have a wonderful day and as always...Happy Stamping!

First of all I want to thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers:) My family and I are all doing fine and our homes are okay too! We were able to return home yesterday so that was a relief. Unfortunately the fire is still going strong and has destroyed many homes, so please continue to keep this little town in your thoughts. The winds have died down so hopefully they can get control of it soon. Thank you all for your patience with orders and the contest:)

So who won BILLY? Michelle H in NY you WON! Please email me with your address and I will send this cute little guy out to you. Thank you to everyone who played along... if you would like Billy head on over to pick one up:)

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Stamping!

Celebrate A Little Late:)

I know it's been awhile since I've posted, but sometimes life gets in the way of stamping. My son has a double ear infection and a virus! Poor little guy has a terrible cough, runny nose and a fever since Sunday. I took him to the doctor yesterday and his fever had come down but he still had everything else including the ear infections... that's why he wouldn't put his head on my shoulder:) They gave me antibiotics to fight the ear infections and then I just give him my love for the virus and a little Tylenol if he seems to need it. Well so anyways this is that reason for no stamping and no posts:( Also my reason for getting my nephews birthday card in the mail late. This is the gatefold card I made for his 13th birthday. The paper is from a paper pack I got at Walmart forever ago and can't remember the name, sorry. I stamped it with For Him by Stampendous, this ones on sale until Sunday. We got some new Stampendous sets in, go check them out, cute ones for 4th of July. Back to the card, I stamp the footballs on watercolor paper and with a blending pen and Vintage Photo by Ranger Ink colored them in. I cut them out and popped them up. I did the same for the little sentiment. I used my Cricut Schoolhouse Platin to cut out the 13 and popped it up on my oval nesties:) Add some $$ and Voila I have a birthday for my nephew:) Hopefully my son will start to feel better so I can get some more stamping done.

Also don't forget about Dress Up Billy who is arriving on June 12th... you can email me if you want to be on the waitlist. I will do a post this Friday for the giveaway!!! So spread the word:)

Happy Stamping!
