Bringing You Sunshine!

Happy Monday!  I had a great weekend with some amazing ladies and made a bunch of new friends!  I think I spent most of my time laughing and not a lot of my time getting things done, but it was totally worth it and I will absolutely go again next year.  😀

Today’s card is one that I made this weekend, or started and finished once I got home and had my sewing machine.  (note to self, take sewing machine next year!)  I thought Ruby would be a perfect match with the new Basic Grey paper.

Paper: Basic Grey  Stamps: Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, The Greeting Farm sentiment  Ink: Amuse, Copic markers  Accessories: Stick Pin, Twill, Pearls.

I am going to finish unpacking all my stuff  today, I hope you have a wonderful Monday and as always thanks for stopping by!



Yeah for Friday! This week has been a busy one and I don’t even know what I have gotten done because my list of “to do’s” is still a mile long! LOL 

I am just happy it is the weekend, we have a couple of BBQ’s to go to but the one tomorrow the boys have been waiting all year for! LOL  A friend of ours only does 1 party a year, but it is awesome with live music, swimming and amazing food, very fun!  So, I thought I would make a little card up for her as a thank you.

Paper: Basic Grey Olivia  Stamp: The Greeting Farm  Ink: Amuse, Copic markers (E000o, E000, R00, BG10, E31, E33, E35)  Accessories: Prima flower, Button, Pearls, Twine, Rub on sentiment.

Well I guess I had better get to work, need to shop and get a couple more cards done before the weekend!

I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!


Here’s To You and a Visitor!

Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?   Mine was busy with the kids and lots of beach time!  I did finally find a bit of time to stamp last night, I hope I find more today.

Paper: Basic Grey  Stamps: Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, Stamping Bella sentiment  Ink: Amuse, Copic markers  Accessories: Jute, Buttons, Rhinestones, Stampendous glitter.

I thought I would also share a picture of a little visitor we had on our back deck this weekend!  Liam has named him George and wants to keep him.  I told him that he needs to stay in the trees where his family is and that he cannot bring him inside!  LOL  Here is the little guy.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Wishes

Happy Monday!  Today’s card was inspired by Lee and the boys heading down to fish at the lake!  They are all very serious about digging up worms and all that yucky stuff!  I am sure that I am about to jinx myself, but I’m glad that they haven’t caught any trout so far! 

I borrowed this Lili of the Valley stamp from Lisa last week and knew it would be perfect to go along with my inspiration and this weeks Sketch Saturday sketch #112.

Paper: Basic Grey  Stamps: Lili of the Valley, Verve Stamps sentiment  Ink: Amuse, Copic markers  Accessories: Peggy’s Pretties.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Drunken Stampers Challenge #25 ~ A sketch!

Happy Saturday!  This week at the Drunken Stampers we are gettin’ sketchy!  I love playing with sketches and use them all the time when my mojo is trying to hide!

I had fun playing and decided to do a little paper piecing on the dress and boots.  I always wanted to have knee-high boots when I was younger but my legs are just too short for them and I end up looking kinda funny! 

Paper: Basic Grey  Stamps: C.C. Designs, Amuse sentiment  Ink: Amuse, Copic markers  Accessories: May Arts Jute, Kaiser Pearls, Smooch Illuminate.

Don’t forget to stop by and check out the rest of the lovely Drunken Stamper gals have done with the sketch this week!

Have a fab Saturday and thanks for stopping by!

Mermaid Thanks

Happy Thursday!  The weather here has been beautiful sunny and warm!  We have spent a ton of time at the lake swimming, it is so nice to be living on the lake now, especially with the summer upon us!

I have been in such a summery stampy ( know that neither of those are real words, but it perfectly describes how I am feeling) type mood so I went with Mermaid Anya along with the Sweet Sunday Sketch #76 and kept things really simple because the lake is calling my name!  🙂

Paper: Basic Grey  Stamp: The Greeting Farm  Ink: AMuse, Copic markers  Accessories: Pearls, Rub on sentiment (not sure who it is by), Prima flower, Button, Jute.

I am mega excited that my summer indulgence,  Big Brother finally starts tonight!  Even Lee and the boys have been asking me when it starts!  I guess there  will be a BB party here tonight!  LOL

*Only 2 more sleeps until  Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps opens!  Run over and check out all the sneak peeks, they are amazing.  I can not wait to get my inky fingers all over Sparkle’s brand new stamps.* 

Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping by!
