A more fruitful week of play!

Well hello everyone! No, I am not lost. Had a busy week at work, having family over for suppers and a little golfing. Had a doggie day with Loco, we took a nice long walk, then came home and I groomed him, the whole works, cut, shampoo, bath and 4pedicure! He was so good, I am amazed how well behaved he is, while I torture him with the shaver, it takes 2 hours. But then we played and he was very happy to be outdoors with me. Then his new pal from nextdoor came to play with him! Right now he is snoring away on his cushion! As you can see, I luv the little bugger, I think it is the empty nest syndrome, have to have a kid around! LOL, well he does behave like a two year old! Through all of this, I did get a few cards made up. Look and see! Have a great week!

Merci or Thank you in French

Just a little hello this morning, have a golf game with hubby so I can't be long! I made this little card up for the StampTv sketch challenge and used the polished stone technique. You can find the technique along with a whole bunch of other great ways to use your stamps, inks, and imagination! Check it out! Have a great weekend everyone!

Congrats on your new home!

Hello everyone! I just had to share this little card with you. The image was sent to my by Kerri-Kezzam64, and I just fell in love with it! I made it up for the StampTV technique this week, which was inking up your cuttlebug folder!

I have some very exciting news! My brother who owns his own company has asked me to make up about 50 Christmas cards for him to send out to customers! Was totally blown away by the request. Such an honor that he would ask me! Yippee! Can hardly wait to see what I will come up with! I have promised him 3 samples to choose from!

Well that is it for now! Have a great weekend! Thanks for visiting!

Well I am back with my little pup again! We had a Potluck Friday challenge at Stamp Tv, which I just barely made in time and we had to use a picture as a focal point. So of course I decided to use my little Star! Well you'll never guess, it is mid-August and summer has decided to pay us a it is scorching hot. 30c and humid! Supposed to last for a week. We'll see! I am out of here for now, have to catch up on the housework so I can play more! Dull but must be done! Have a great day!

Well I am back!

It seems like forever since I have posted anything! But being very busy at work and having a wedding on the weekend and all the other little things of everyday life, no time for playing! I finally got 3 cards made up and mostly nature cards! I think that I am missing sitting out in the backyard and just being quiet with the birds and my trees and flowers and of course my little pup Loco! Things have been just too hectic!!! Time to stop and smell the roses!
The rain is relentless, rain or showers almost everyday! Kinda getting the ole gal cranky!
She needs her sun! LOL! Well they are promising4 days of nice weather, (Yeah sure) time will tell. So here are the cards! Hope you like them! Have a wonderful day!

So glad to be back!

Hi! It seems like forever since I have had the time to check in and chat! As I usually work 3 days a week including 1 evening which takes enough time away from my favorite things, this week it was a full week and 2 evenings too! So no time for fun. Will be the same for the next week but no matter, the weekend is here! A friend of mine asked me if I had any cards for baby showers, and unfortunately I did not! But lo and behold I quickly decided to remedy that! Yesterday I found the perfect stamp, and a small clear stamp set, and yes I have made up a little card. Apparently she is 90% sure it is a boy! But just in case, I did add a little pink! The backround is embossed with a die from Sizzix. Well on to some more creativity, like how fast I can get the housework done, so I can play more! LOL
Have a wonderful weekend!
