A whole year more incrediblerer!

Hi, again!

Don't you love that sentiment!  I laughed out loud when I saw it with the cute birthday stamp from Stamping Bella.  We all want to feel like a queen on our birthdays, don't we?

I just thought she was adorable! It's hard to see, of course, but I always use Wink of Stella on my images for that extra sparkle!

Hope your weekend is incredible and you are getting in some good relaxation!  We all need those weekends to unwind & recharge for the coming Monday, don't we?

See you tomorrow!

QKR Stampede Challenge - Down on the Farm

Hello, again!

Can you believe July is almost over already?  I've been trying to get outside & soak up the warm days while I can.  They disappear all too quickly!

The QKR Stampede challenge for today is "Down on the Farm" and although I looked at a ton of QKR Stampede digi's, I just had to grab # 16913 - Stack of Pigs.  I knew it would send a smile to someone who is going through some rough times right now.

I'm not sure why the camera angle makes the sides look wavy, but my photography skills leave a LOT to be desired!

Grab your favorite farm themed stamps or dies & see what you can come up with!  You could be the lucky winner of some new digi stamps!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Orange is the New Black!

Hi, everyone!

I couldn't resist the title!  ha ha   I'm not usually a person who uses much orange, but grabbed it for this cutie.  Stamping Bella has the cutest stamps around! I decided to make this one into a birthday card.  She just has such a happy little face!

I should have added freckles to her face!  I may do that before I package it up for the donation.

See you tomorrow with our weekly QKR Stampede challenge!

Cow #2

Hi, gals!

Time to share cow number 2!  Looks like he has stuck his head under the fence to get to the really "good" grass on the other side.  I'm sure I would do the same thing!  ha ha   He looks totally content doesn't he?  Good company, good is good!

What is there about a card with a critter on it that immediately makes you smile?  My daughter loves only cards with critters....not people!  So I know on her birthday I have to be sure the card has a critter of some kind.

Enjoy the rest of your week, ladies!  I'll see you tomorrow!

Cow A Bunga!!

Happy Surprises!

Hello, everyone!!!  I'm sure you have all had unexpected "surprises" that have just made your day. Well, I had one the other day that just made my whole week!  I went to the mailbox expecting the usual junk mail & bills.  To my surprise, there was a fat padded envelope in my box.  I immediately searched my mind trying to remember what I could have ordered & forgotten about.  Nothing came to mind and when I pulled it out of the box, I saw that it was from one of my favorite people on earth! My friend Leslie had seen me post a card featuring a cow & explain how much I loved cows.  She had two cow stamps that she decided would have more love at my house than at hers & she shipped them off to me!  I can't tell you how excited I was!!  I had planned to color up some Stamping Bella stamps that afternoon, but went directly back & colored up both of these instead.  This is the first card & I will post the 2nd one tomorrow.

Isn't this the cutest cow ever?  I'm in love with him!  The inside of the card says:"An "udder" year older? Have an udderly  wonderful birthday!"  

If you think this little guy is cute, just wait until you see tomorrow's!

With Sympathy!

Hello, friends!

Another week has rolled around & I'm sure you are all trying to get back in the "work" mode after a relaxing weekend.  Mondays were never my favorite day! ha ha

Here is the other new die I mentioned previously.  I LOVE lacy dies! It took me awhile to decide how I wanted to make this to take full advantage of the gorgeous lace work.

I'm watching Brady laying in the window & thinking a short nap sounds pretty good right now! I may have to grab my Kindle & head to the sunroom to finish as much of a story I'm reading as I can before I join him in a nap!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Brady is asleep in his window bed in the sunroom!  He can't resist these sunny days & his favorite method of enjoying them seems to be to nap through them! ha ha

If he is not napping in the window, he is laying on his yellow pillow on the floor lapping up the sunshine!  What a life!

Today I have a birthday card to share.  I got a couple new dies & of course, you have to try them out right away!

I thought this would make a beautiful card & I was right! LOVE this die!  I know.....I say that about ALL of them, don't I?  Lol!

I used the other new die on a sympathy card which I will share tomorrow.
