Unidentified Image Swap

Heather is our hostess this round and she has provided us with this adorable Whipper Snapper bird stamp.  My background paper is from We R Memory keepers (rainbow pad, I think).  Thanks for such a fun round.  Can't wait to see what we get next.

Game On!

I'm pretty excited to be posting on my blog from my new cell phone.  My old phone didn't allow me to.  I made this card yesterday for a birthday party my daughter was invited to.  It was for her hockey coaches son.  I'm not sure of the name of the stamp set but its from Papertrey.

Camping in the Forest

 haven't had much time for stamping lately.  Been traveling with the family, camping actually.  We've spent a week camping locally, a week in Amish country and a week in upstate New York to attend a family reunion.  We don't camp in a tent, we have a travel trailer, but when I saw this stamp set at MFT stamps, I knew I needed the whole camping ensemble.  My time restraints limited me to this one simple card, but I hope to dig out the set many, many times.  My background papers are from SU.

Sisterhood - Giggle Greetings

Here is my card for the sisterhood group that I am in.  My friend, Gael, is our hostess this time around and she challenged us to make a masculine card that wasn't the typical sports, fishing, guy stuff.  She has a great sense of humor so I thought this stamp might fit the bill.  I found some inspiration from a few cards online and went with this.

Here is the inside:

Unidentified Image

Kadie was our hostess this time around.  She always picks such fun stamps.  This one is from The Cat's Pajamas.
She included a sentiment, but I didn't realize it until I was packing up my completed cards for mailing, so my sentiment is from The Greeting Farm (a set that Miss Kadie had sent me a few years back as a gift).  I'm not sure what you call the style of this card, but it's my new favorite.  I got my first copy of this design from Barb in a return swap.  It's so much fun.................and easy.  Just cut, cut, cut and paste them together.

The paper is from a Pebbles paper stack, with confetti cream and an old shade of SU blue.  Thanks Kadie for such a fun challenge this round.  Can't wait to see what our next hostess has in store.

My daughter turns 20

I don't know where the time goes, but somehow my sweet baby girl is turning 20 this week.  It seems like only yesterday, that I turned 20.  She's off at school for summer session but has come home for the weekend to celebrate her special day with family.  We already bought her an official birthday present, an air conditioner for her third floor city apartment that she got a couple weeks ago.  So, I needed to give her some kind of gift so I decided to make her tote bag that she picked out the material for when she was home for spring break.  It doesn't look like she and I will be home much at the same time for a while, so chances of her getting together with me to make the bag herself wasn't going to happen for a while.  So I've made the bag for her thinking it will be just what she wanted.  Here's the bag

And this is the card I made to go with her present.
I used pistachio and rose red and got my inspiration from a card in the SU catalog from last year.

Red, White and Blue

I made this card for a red, white and blue swap that my friend Barb is hosting.  These were so much fun to put together.  The stamp set is from CTMH May stamp of the month from last May.  I think it's called Patriotic.  I used SU not quite navy and riding hood red.
