By the sea, by the beautiful sea........

 Today's card is for two challenge the color challenge over at SCS and MMTPT. I have not participate in the teapot Tuesday in a few weeks so it was fun to make a card for this. I got this stamp from a stamp show near me and it was unmounted, so I don't know who makes it. Is it not the most peaceful scene? I love the Adirondack chair. I wish a had a back yard that over looked the water so I could put some chairs out there and relax!  Thanks for stopping by!

I Scream, You Scream......Look yummy Ice Scream!

This is cute set from my dear friend Sharon. She ordered this set from There she goes and didn't realize she had this set all ready. So she gave it to me!  Thanks Sharon!!  I love this.
I used my copics to color in the ice creams and the paper I used is from Hobby lobby. This card reminds me of such fun summer colors! Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Happy Fathers day.

Happy  Fathers day! I made this card for my husband from the kids. This is one of my favorite images, we just love to go fishing. This is a Mo manning digital  image, it was printed on a lazer printer, which made a big difference with coloring the image. I have used my own printer (ink jet) and if I used  light copics colors they would bleed. I did not have any problem with the lazer printer. I am working on getting a lazer printer.
If you used google reader I have to apologize I tried to write this up earlier twice! The first time it got sent with out me sending it so I deleted it the next time I tried to schedule a time and it sent it any way.  When I opened my reader, there were two posts with this card.   Silly me!! So Sorry if you have seen this and were unable to post comments. I hope you loved ones enjoy a nice quite Fathers day ! Thanks for stopping by!

For today's Free 4 all challenge on SCS.
 Today we were to make a card with our Best friends, our animals. This is a perfect image of my Sophie. She is an Airedale terrier. What a super dog she is, she is truly my BFF. She is such a funny dog, when people come to visit, she will smile at them! It is the funniest thing. I am going to have to try to get a photo of it.
Thanks for stopping by today!

I think its back!!!

Happy day!!!
I think my MOJO is returning.  As soon as I saw the sketch challenge I knew what I wanted to do. I love this set from Flourish and I even had no problem with the color challenge, which I always have difficulty with .
Today was the last day of school for my kids,the last year in elementary for my youngest. I did good until her 4th grade teacher got me crying, and it was down hill from there. I cried until I got home. So sad how fast kids grow up! I am going to be a mess when my son heads off to High school. Mia is such a social butterfly, pool party this afternoon and right now she is at a bonfire burning her math papers! These kids crack me up!
Everyone is bring there math folder and burning it at the bonfire.
Thanks for stopping by have a great day.

flutter by.

Hey Bloggers!
Hope you are all doing well, I have been out of it for the last week. I was busy and I just did not have an once of creative juice in me. I wish it would return! This is a CASE card from a mingle  friend Debra.  I made this as a thank you card. This is  for my sister she made me a wonderful  knitted felted bag (see picture below) and I love it . I wanted to hold off posting this because my sister reads my blog. I didn't want to spoil her seeing the card for the first time.
On another note I am so proud of my daughter. She made it on a travel soccer team. One of the top clubs in MI. I am so proud of her for trying so hard and on such a bad day( hot with 90% humid day, yuck!). Congrates Mia!!  She was beaming form ear to ear. This is her month, I am so proud of all her accomplishment in the last month of school.  Great work Mia!!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day! Hope to be back later this week.

Come fly away with me.

I have so much to tell you all today! 
Very exciting news for me! I just found out today that I am a winner of some great Blog candy,  earlier in May I put a quote in for Dawn Burnworths blog My Stamping Thyme.  Today I found out I am the winner of her blog candy! Very exciting, I never win. So I have been flying high all day. Thank you Dawn! Go check out her blog she does fantastic work. 
On to my card, this is for today's sketch challenge. I wanted to make this for my father-in- law.  While we were visiting him this weekend,  he asked us about the balloon festival and if we were coming in for it this year. Sad to say we can not make it this year for the ballooning, but this will let him know we are thinking of him! Let me know what you think of my card! Thanks for stopping by!

She has been working on her blog and teaching herself to make her own blog design and watermarks, she is such a talented lady. Head on over to her blog check out her work, you will not be disappointed! Thanks for stopping by today and see you soon!
