Hi Everyone,

I am very excited I am leaving for my vacation tomorrow! Hopefully lots of sunshine, swimming, eating and drinking and necessarily in that order hehe!

I will  not be  posting next week as I wanted a vacation from everything, so I did this quick card just for fun before I left.

This sweet little girl is a cling stamp from Penny Black, I just love her. Of course I colored her with my copics and added lots of stickles to her wings.

I hope you like her and thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week, I will think of you all when I am sipping my fruity drink poolside!

Butterflies and Bows

Good morning,
 First a special Happy Birthday to my daughter Ashley!

Next we have a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' called Butterflies and Bows. Of course we have two sponsors again, our weekly sponsor is:


And our monthly sponsor is:


Here is my creation.

The stamp is from Loralie Designs. I colored it with copic markers. Reminds me of my sister and I, yes with our big bums lol!!! The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch. The bow on the hat I stamped twice and cut it and used some foam tape so it is 3 dimensional, hard to tell in the picture.

So I hope you will join us in this challenge. Just make sure you stamp something and follow the theme! I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Meanwhile, go see what the rest of the DT came up with, they are  so talented!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Family time

Hello Everyone,

Hope we are all well. I am doing fine. I wanted to share a project with you that I just finished and to tell you the story behind it all.

Let me start by saying that I made this for my mother in law's sister (Marie). My mother in law has cancer and has been in and out of chemotherapy for two years. That means every week she needed  a ride to chemo and back. Well her sister and her sister's friend volunteered to go with her on most weeks. I would drop her off and they would meet her there, stay with her for however long it took, which was usually 2-3 hours and then take her out for lunch or coffee and drive her home.

We appreciated this so much I wanted to make her something special, so a couple of weekends ago we went as a family to New Hampshire and had a great time. I took a ton of pictures thinking I would make something with them. I have a xmas wall hanging that I made at my favorite craft store that Marie loves so I used that as the inspiration and came up with this.

Ironically the title at the top I just happen to have and while we were away Marie made a toast that said to Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow! So how could I not incorporate that into this wall hanging.

The frame I got at Michael's on clearance (sweet). The paper is Graphic 45 A Place in Time. It is hard to tell but I used a lot of 3M foam tape to add layers and dimension to the picture.  The leaves on the top are wood that I used gold embossing powder on and the leaves on the bottom are a die. The flowers are Prima

I am giving it to her this weekend, hopefully she will like it.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
