I am married to lovely man that just smiles at my stamping addiction, two great kids that I just could not imagine having as a part of my life....not that they are perfect...smile!!!!! I do have a furry little girl too that is just to sweet for words. Now you know a little about me I hope you enjoyed your visit and come back anytime. Happy Stamping!!!!!

Good Tuesday Evening,
It is late and on a school night but hey that is how the cookie crumbles around here on Tuesday evenings.
So is it wrong to be in love with a stampset????.....not if you are a stamper...smile
Well I am a stamper and I am in love with one set in particular and it is Field Flowers.....oh my. I am thinking I should really pair it up with my other love and that is the Mocha Morning Specialty DSP...Oh all the ideas....
This card however is paired up with the other delicious paper in the holiday mini Spiced Cake DSP I personally would never have thought to put BBreeze with MMustard but hey guess what it is beautiful!!!!!! Add the feild flowers and a few pearls and a little CChip scallop dotted GGrain ribbon and you get a fairly pretty card if I may say so myself. Well actually me and the 4 other ladies in the club thought it was pretty too...so there...LOL
Now that I am done bragging ( sorry if it really came across that way by the way....so not me) I am going to hit the hay. My baby is having her first day of SK tomorrow and the hubby and I are going for a much awaitted breakfast...it is my favorite meal to eat out ( unless of course you are taking me to the Keg or Ruth Chris's Steakhouse...yuummmm, expensive but still for a treat yummmm.
Until another day

Good Sunday Evening!!
Well can you believe that there is only 2 more sleeps before all ( most ) of our kiddies are back to school and the routines get back into motion. I myself like to have some routine in our life and both my kids so love school so sending them back and the first day of school is not as stressful as it can be for others.
Anyways onto the card I am so in love with this DSP everything about it screams " I've got class" and richness. This is one of the cards we made at the club of ladies on Wednesday. This was pretty much the favorite of the day...I will show the other two in the next couple of days.
Well it is late I am tired and have an exciting day tomorrow as I get to see my BFF. We have not been able to get together too much this summer because she and her family have had a couple really exciting and big trips planned. We are also due to the holiday all being able to get together as whole famillies not just her and I with the kids, hubbies actually will be there. I always like it when we ge together with everyone. So I look so forward to tomorrow afternoon.

Yep it is Thursday and there is only 5 days before my son goes back to school and my daughter has 6. She has made my summer go by way to fast by making me do a countdown of how many more sleeps before she gets to go back to school two weeks into summer holidays. Do not get me wrong I love my little girl and how much she loves school but let me just say it has been EXTREMELY annoying.
Anyways enough about how she cannot entertain herself but onto the the card I got as a swap from convention I thought it was so cute and I know I have seen similar out there in blogging world but I was happy to have one in my hand so thank you Carolyn Dobie from NY for swapping with me and this is my take on it ....LOL the only thing I changed is the extra layer under the strawberry and my words otherwise it was all her.
I hope you all like it, I know I just love it when the smart, creative people out there who show me how to use my punches in different ways than the obvious.
Oh and just incase you were unaware the Holiday Mini is current as of NOW so enjoy writting out your wish lists and if you would like to give me a copy I will have a copy for those phonecall I just may get in about 2 1/2 months from now....no worries though as we will keep them updated if there are those items you just have to have now.....smile
If you have not recieved a Holiday mini as of yet and you are in Southern Ontario and do not already have a regular demonstrator send me an email and I will be sure to get one out to you right away
