Mower or golfer??

Can they be both??? I think the golfer has to have a love of grass right??? Either way Michelle has hit a birdie with this one!! I hope I used that golf saying in context!! Oh well I guess now you know I am not a expert in golf however I play a mean game on our Wii.....I think I have my girls beat! Yes it is hard...I can't believe you question that!!! Love these!!! What do you think???

on the hunt

Really these cards are soooo for every Dad....Ok well some of them....what is better that a stag or dear on a Fathers Day card...Ha Ha. These cards would work for all those "outdoorsy" Dads out there...Is that a word?? I really do like this set, it is nice to have..and if I play my cards right Michelle might forget I have it ....Best way to get stamp sets!!!

Preview for fathers day...

I have some of the Fathers day cards I have been working on ...I will show a couple for the next few days...Enjoy!! I was trying to keep a color least that is how it turned that is the story I am going with...I have to tell you this is one of my faves...I love the Honu and it reminds me of Hawaii ...My family goes there as often as we can and it is a special place for my Mom and Dad....they have been there about 25 times...I am not Joking.....So this is a card I would give to my dad or maybe to my hubby....Maybe that will give him the idea we should go again soon!!

A few months ago I showed you the fairy that I stitched for my eldest daughter...well here is the one I finished for my youngest....She loves it and now we can frame them for their rooms....Of course I have already started the next fairy...yes I have to have something to do when I wait for my girls at dance!!!

2nd Post for today!!

I had to pop this in Because I got the pics from the Pot is from Michelle ....such a great idea...the flowers pop out and the card is attached...LOVE IT!!!   Yippie for Michelle.....The Quilt card is mine to Kathy..It took a really long time but I think it was worth really looks like a quilt....ok It was worth the wait right!!!

in flight..

I tend to come back to this set time and time again....I think they can give such movement and softness even when you use a darker color with them. Of course I have to add a bit of sparkle on their wings...It wouldn't be magical if I didn't...right....What do you think??

Ok I do love BB as well but I think the orange really works!! Speaking of work.... we are in the middle if dance competitions and I just wanted to give a big shout out to all the dance moms out there!!! It is a great thing you are doing for your girls and we know they will thank you but not till they have little girls of their own !!! Let me know if you are one of those moms...

This is a great saying..."Kind people are the best kind of people"...Great card Kathy..I love this stamp so spring ...cherry blossom...Kathy is on her own this week. My Dad went fishing with his buddys so we are keeping her busy...Michelle is using her boys to keep her busy...Babysitting will cure loneliness every time. I hope to be shopping with her...Spending $$ is also a great way to keep busy!!!

And I will be posting another set of Mothers day cards as well soon because I did take pics of them so I have been waiting for Kathy to send them to me!! Yes that is right I am blaming it all on Kathy....Someone has to take the heat and I picked her...I am almost positive that it will be Michelle next ...amazing how that works!!! The poster is "perfect"!!!! Hee hee!! The RR card is the one I made for my brother and family to give to Kathy and the PP is the one I made for my Mother in law...I think pink.....What do you think??

I love making my own paper when I need a certain something for a card...that is the beautiful thing about stamps ....your pattern... your way...I guess Michelle thinks so as well!! Here are a couple of cool patterns she made....Love the bold colors.

Kathy's flowers Michelle stole..

You have seen Kathy make cards with this set beautifully....but sometimes we need a bit of a pick up for card making...our sets get "dry" or maybe we run out of we beg borrow and steal each others sets to get going again....this is one of those times!!! Michelle has made some really cute cards with this set..I can't remember the name?? Oh well no matter right....Just another little fact...Michelle did this before her day at the spa so just imagine what inspired cards will come soon from her!!!  Of course she is telling everyone that the lady who did her facial thought her skin was "perfect".... enough said!!! She must be inspired!!!

A wonderful day

What a great day yesterday was...My girls were super good to their mom and helpful as all get out!! We had a really nice dinner with the rest of the family and my mom loved her presents...who wouldn't want a lilac tree??? My inlaws came and had dinner with us and loved her presents!!! Yes more flowers but a pot bursting with assorted flowers and I have to say it will look great on their doorstep!! Of course there were cards so I must post them...I just wanted to take today to post a card I made for a friend who's uncle died...When we were early teens I used to go to family functions of hers and vice versa...He was a really nice man and I know he will be sadly missed by all who knew him..I know my friend will ....

Yes we are still on MOMS...I am not going to quit posting about moms till it is time to show off Michelle's card...and mine of course!! So here we go...This is my first time using this DP and I think the owls are too cute....I know it is not very " Mothers day" but I know a mommy will love it! I like using the blues for moms as well...not all moms are pink girls right??

Mommy, Mom or Mother??

What do you call your MOM??? I know when you are Little ...or when you need something...Mommy is what you use right? But I don't think I could call Kathy... Mother...Ok maybe if I was mad ...but even then...I do call her Kathy but that is because she can easily tune all of us kids out!!! When we were little ( and still to this day) my mom would read her book...she loved to read ...but there was no way to get her attention unless you used her "real" name...I guess we still are looking for her "full" attention....even as adults...Here are some more Mother's Day cards...Cute I think....

Oh Mothers!!

Ok so I have a hard time with purple as you all know..I bought the DP just so I would use up all my purple...still ....Not my fave but I think these turned out nice and their are tons of moms that love purple right?? Thanks for looking....I am trying a new type of card for Kathy I am excited about it!! I worked on it last night for a couple of hours...well I was watching the Biggest Loser as well....I love that show...Jillian rocks!!!
