Hope your day is "Par-fect!"

Hello, everyone!

With all the warmer weather coming, I'm sure a lot of you (or your guys) are already heading to the golf course!  Well, today's card is a fun birthday card for that golfer on your list.

The dies I used were all from Memory Box.  The Mini Golf Carts, the Stitched Clouds and the Golf Club Landscape.  The golfer is from Art Impressions.

Enjoy your weekend!

QKR Stampede Challenge - Wheels

Happy Friday!

Today's challenge at QKR Stampede is a fun one!  The theme is "Wheels" and with all the choices you have at QKR Stampede, it shouldn't be hard to come up with something that catches your fancy! Or pull out your favorite car stamp and create a card for your favorite guy.  I decided on digi # 20205-Old Car for mine.

I love the look of old, antique cars!  I'm not sure I would actually want to drive one, however, since few of them have air bags or air conditioning!  I am pretty spoiled by those 2 things!  I remember driving back from Minneapolis one summer in a car with no air.  It was brutal! Melissa & I had gone to a craft show and the car was packed with my tole paintings.  The temperature was in the high 90's and so was the humidity.  Even with the windows down, it was just hot air blowing in and we were quickly soaked!  She had purchased a fish while we were there & we had him in a plastic bag full of water.  I won't tell you what happened to him in the heat, but suffice it to say, we didn't have him long!

Enjoy your weekend!  Hope to see your entries soon!

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!
