Things with wings

Some days I wish i had wings so I could get out of here. I imagine it's wonderful to fly above all things. Oh, well back here on earth.

I have a mini gift bag to share. This is made from a business sized envelope. I've always wanted to try one of these.


The image is from fresh Brewed Designs. Something I've had colored for a while now.

It's Over??!!!!

OMG, I can't believe the weekend went by so quickly. I don't like Mondays, really I don't. I spent the weekend trying to get my living room straightened out. It seems to be the graveyard for everything.

I managed to get in some creativity this weekend. Happy about that. I am sharing a card made with Fresh Brewed Design image. I'm still in that beach/summer mode, can you tell?




The sentiment is from TLC Creations.

Life is Sweet

Oh, I need a summertime break and drink and chance to relax. Work has really been stressful and it doesn't look like it's going to slow down any time soon. But enough whining.

I must have had tropical drinks on my mind when I made this card, LOL! I was inspired by Paulette's (TLC Creations) summer digi club. She has some great digi papers, sentiments and images in her club. I used her digi papers for this card. I love bright colors and this one spoke to me.

The image and sentiment is from my friend Deedee. She's closed up her shop now, but I just love her work.




Drink up everyone!

Thank You Teachers

Well, school has officially ended! In all the excitement I totally forgot this year's gift for Cee's teacher. I know, bad Mommy. She's had an AWESOME year, A-B Honor roll all marking periods. So yes, it was a bad thing that I forgot, but I recovered well. I threw together a little gift basket of Bath and Body Works products, so her teacher can relax and release this summer.


I really appreciate the tough job these teachers do everyday. It's got to be rough dealing with so many personalities and trust me some of the kids have personality as big as an adult. I know, I have one of those....


The image for the tag is from Fresh Brewed Designs. It's from the summer rubber release. YES, I pulled out the rubber and actually stamped something. it was pretty fun.




Take Care, enjoy!

Blast from the Past

Hi Friends,
Today I have a blast from the past image for you from Pholkart Blessings. They are no longer in business, Patti, the owner decided to concentrate more on her artwork. Good for her, I miss her.

But here is my card with some of her art. I've had this forever, it seems. I am still trying to get to some of my backlog.

You really cant see it in the photo but there is flocking on the bunny's tail.

Be sure to stop back tomorrow. There will be a celebration blog hop for Daisy Doodles and I am a guest designer!
