puppy love

What a adorable...I really like the paws in the background!! Fun! We are at another competition this weekend and the girls are doing really well....They love to dance and I think they want to do more classes next year...yikes for me!! That means more hours at the studio and higher fees!! Oh well they love it and we would let them take as many classes as they makes them happy and keeps them out of trouble!!!

So this is my truck...not much to say about it...I love the in-color papers for all kids cards!! It just works...Thanks for looking....Oh ya.. I have an update...Kathy is in San Diego for a cousin's wedding!!! Congrats to the whole family!! Wish we were there it is sunny and hot and I think the went swimming today...Not fair ...

A Christening card

We made a Christening cards for a customer last week and we didn't want to post it and wreck the surprise so.... Now.... here it is!! She wanted it fairly crisp and simple and to the point and I think that is what this card is. We did it in a postcard style so it would be easy to read and put on the fridge or bulletin Nobody will miss it!! What do you think??

love this stamp!

I think I love these because they remind me of two thing..the first my sister...I know sappy right...but true. The second is it reminds me of my girls when they were little. That is sappy as well so I guess that is me!!! I always have fun water coloring these two.
