At first Joey was skeptical about a pink & brown owl, but after I cut it out he decided she was cute. We then used a branch from the same cartridge & put them on a sky blue background. I used SCAL to cut out a cute little cloud & then cut out Hello from the Stamping cartridge. I'm very happy that this turned out even cuter in person than in my head, because usually it's the other way around. The boys looked through all my cartridges & Anthony asked if I wanted a princess cartridge. I told him I liked cartridges with little boy stuff like him & his brother. He then said, "but don't you want a princess one for YOU?" He is so sweet. Sometimes. I enjoyed letting them help me and they've already told me my next project is going to be the dog from the Zooballoo cartridge. We'll have to see how that one turns out. Thanks for coming by!

Not that I plant flowers or do any other sort of outdoor activity besides watching my kiddos at the ballpark, but Toby & Buster seem to be doing a great job! I used one of his colored images and just chalked the grass and sky. I was too lazy to break out the colored pencils & OMS. Be sure to play along with Dustin!
I don't even know the name of this stamp since I just have a stamped image from a swap and not the stamp itself. Since I'm an accountant, the first of the month is always really tough since we have to close out the prior month. This month will be especially hard because my friend and co-worker Jessica had her baby last week and will be out for the next 12 weeks. I depend on her way too much at work and wanted to send her a card to let her know I'm missing her. I'm so glad she gets to spend time with new baby Emma, but work just won't be the same while she's out! Now I just need to find time to buy some stamps so I can mail it...
I'm hoping to make some new projects with both Dustin Pike images & the Just Because cartridge soon. These are my new favorites to play with.

The sentiment is "Our lives are like quilts, made of bits and pieces, joy and sorrow, all stitched together with love." It's from a quilting stamp set I've had for a while now.
Below is a picture of what a wreck my desk was when I finished this little project! I've got it cleaned back up now so I can maybe work on something else.
I'm off to decide what I'm gonna make next. Have a good evening & thanks for coming by to look!

This evening Jason is with the youth for the weekend so the boys and I went to Burger King for dinner (which Jason despises) and now we're snuggled in the bed watching Despicable Me. Anthony has the sweetest little giggle and he has almost lost his breath a couple of times laughing so hard. Joey had been quite angry with me lately but he has been an absolute sweetheart this evening. This 3rd grade attitude is quite difficult for me to handle with my lack of patience & exhaustion lately, so I'm very happy everyone is getting along tonight. We've got our first soccer games in the morning so Jason is gonna skip some of the youth events to come watch the kiddos play. Thanks for coming by the check out my new creations and hopefully I'll be back with more soon. I've got some great ideas in my head. We'll see if I can get them out on paper. Good night!
