A hectic life....

Good morning everyone, just had to get a posting in today. I feel so bad when I don't get at least one done in a week. We are working the Ice biz this weekend again so no crafting. This is a card I made about a month ago but hey at least I'm posting right? Todays is a rubbernecker stamp that I just fell in love with. The inside of the card says "Hey, how did my Moms butt get back there?" For those of you in your aging years such as myself I think you can appreciate it. For those of you young enough to not worry PREPARE yourselves! Have a great day and take care.....

Busy Busy

So sorry I didn't have a post last weekend, My husband and I opened our shaved ice business for the summer this last weekend and it makes it tough to craft. We don't run it full time so we try to devote as much time as we can to it while the weather is nice. We have so much fun with it, we have some really great customers and if you ever get into our area please stop by and try one, you will be hooked for life! They are very yummy. I will try to get a card made up and posted soon but in the meantime just know I am thankful that you all stop by to check out the blog! Thanks everyone. Have a great week.

Happy Mother's Day!

Good Morning, hope everyone is having a wonderful Mother's Day! This is another one in a somewhat Zindorf style, it isn't brayered. It shows with my sponged edges. These colors were so beautiful together. The two colors used here are Pomegranate and Apricot. Have a lovely day ladies, enjoy your family and friends!

Michelle Zindorf Style

How is everyone's Saturday going? I have been wanting to try a Michelle Zindorf style card for sometime now and although I tried yesterday I just couldn't do it. So I started over today and wallah! I think I got a pretty close one. I did two but my brayer leaves black marks even after being cleaned. How many of you have tried one of these cards? If you would like to check out one of Michelle tutorials here is a link to her blog. She has tons of them, have fun with it. I would love to see a link to yours, please feel free to leave me one. I will come over to your place and check it out. I have added quite a few blogs on my blog roll this week and hope to do some more soon. Hope you all have a wonderful stampin' day!

Happy Friday! I really love to play with the challenges. I don't participate every week in all, but I do try to do the Card Sketch and the Featured Stamper. If you ever find your self in a rut, using the same colors and the same layouts they are a fun way to get you to try something new. So here is this weeks Color Challenge and Card Sketch challenge all in one card. Go check them out and play. Don't forget to sign my Guestbook while you are here. I love checking out everyone else spaces. Have a great day!

Hillbillie Matthew

Here's a little story, we have some neighbors and they have the cutest little guy who is 3 now, his name is Matthew. Matthew is the smallest Hillbillie I have ever seen. Matthew is the wild child who does things like pee off the back porch and wears a Festus looking hat for those of you old enough to remember Gunsmoke! Anyway they took a trip to Yellowstone last year and the tourists took more pictures of Matthew because of his Hat! Karen (his Mom) said they were like paparazzi, it was so bad. So needless to say I thought immediately of Matthew when I saw this little guy. Hope you all like the story of Matthew and the card that portrays him!
