Lavender birthday wishes

Hi, friends!

Where did the month go?  I hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather and looking forward to May! I know I am!  I hate coats, boots, scarves and gloves and all the things that go with winter! ha ha  It has been so wonderful just running out the house with no coat these past few weeks!

I couldn't help but notice as I prepared to post this, that it is April 27th.  Which would have been my folks 73rd wedding anniversary.  I'm sure they are celebrating in heaven today.

My card for today was made with Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle.  Quick, simple and fun!

I'll be back tomorrow with our weekly QKR Stampede challenge!

Happy Hump Day!

Who doesn't love hugs!!  I sure do! And these happy little pigs look like they are no strangers to getting and giving them! Don't you love the sentiment! How cute is that!!

I love critter cards and these little guys just looked so happy they were impossible to pass.

I should be working on more cards right now, but the sunroom is calling me!  Brady is already camped out in the window soaking up the sun and I see a wicker chair with my name on it right beside him!

Snail Mail!

Hello, again!

I don't know about you, but I always love getting letters or notes from friends and family who live a distance away.  I made this cutie into a note card you could send someone you needed to catch up with your latest news.  It's another Stamping Bella design and I think it was the addition of the cat trying to help that made me just have to have this stamp!

I guess we all just need a little help from our friends sometimes don't we!  They have certainly figured out how to reach the mailbox.  I think I'd be grumpy too if I was the little gal on the bottom! I love her face!  Bet they are sending a letter to their grandma!

I'll see you tomorrow with another Stamping Bella!

Happy Birthday!

Hello, friends!

Hope your Monday is going well and your week is off to a great start! I know how much we all love really fast & simple birthday cards and this certainly fills the bill !  Two dies & a few minutes! Perfect for those last minute "Oops" I forgot birthdays but it still looks like you spent a lot of time on it.

All it took was Tutti Designs Butterfly Vine Border and Poppy Stamps Happy Birthday Channel!

Tomorrow I have another darling Stamping Bella image to share!

Fly me to the moon!

Happy Sunday!

I got distracted with outside stuff yesterday & didn't get anything posted.  It's beautiful here and there were a lot of things I wanted to do to spruce up the front of the house.  Melissa & I spent the evening putting down some black mulch around the bushes.  Yes, black!  I had never seen it before but she thought it would look best with my gray house & she was so right! It's beautiful! But what a dirty job it was!  I looked like I had been playing in tar pits when I came inside.  Thank heavens it all washed off but it took several scrubbings to get rid of.

Today's card is a special one for me because the stamp set I used was sent to me by a dear friend. She had gotten an extra and thought of me.  You can find her amazing blog here:

She does extraordinary work and her cards are gorgeous!

Here is the House Mouse set she sent me! Don't you love it?  It's hard to tell who is having the most fun, the butterfly or the mouse!

I'll be back tomorrow with a really easy and quick birthday card!  See you then!

QKR Stampede Challenge - Feathered Friends

Hello, again!

Are you enjoying the spring so far?  Me, too!  It seemed like winter went on forever, even if it was a relative mild one here.  Since this is Friday, it is time for another QKR Stampede challenge! The theme this week is "Feathered Friends" and there are literally tons of images to chose from at the QKR store or you can pull out your own favorite!  For my card, I decided on digi# 18511 Happy Pelican.  I pulled out a couple of my favorite dies & I was done!

I thought this would be a great guy card!  You can never have enough of those on hand, can you? They are always the last cards I make just because they are so hard.  There just aren't that many things guys really enjoy on a card and you can only do so many golf or fishing cards!

Get your thinking  caps on & see what you can come up with! You may be the lucky winner this week!

Tea Time

Hello, gals!

Back to lace and girly things today!  YEAAAA!!!  They are so much more fun to create!

I'm still working on those get well cards for church and I decided every woman would like this.  It's simple but feminine.  I grabbed a Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily die and combined it with a Taylored Expressions Eventful Tea Party die.  Quick & easy!

Back tomorrow with our QKR Stampede weekly challenge! See you then!
