I Love Fridays!

Happy Friday and woo-hoo for the weekend! I am looking forward to it! The weather will be gorgeous, I get to stamp and create with my favorite ladies and finally read the last twenty pages of the Hunger Games. How will you be spending your weekend?

I thought I would share this card I will debut at my Card Buffet Class beginning next Month! I am really excited to kick it off. Please let me know what you think of this card.

This card was inspired by a lovely card made by Terry Kaspari . This is not the exact card she made but thanks to her card I was able to create this one! I loved her color combination and the cute vase idea. The vase is made using the oval punch and then cutting the top at an angle and the bottom straight across, then you pop it up with dimensionals. So cute!



-March Photo-A-Day-

  • Day 9. Red- The envelope from our Netflix movie. I think the movie Salt is in there. I did not watch that movie so I cannot give you my thoughts on it! 
  • Day 10. Loud- Trains are loud. Especially when you live near a rail yard, thankfully I am immune to the sounds!
  • Day 11. Someone you talked to today - My Man, I talk to this guy a lot. I love talking to him. He is making a face at me, he is raising an eyebrow and smiling out of the side of his mouth. Ha. He did give me permission to use this photo! : )
  • Day 12. Fork- I used this fork to eat the great dinner My Man cooked on the grill. It was delicious!
  • Day 13. A sign- Sassy, that is what my sign says. It sits on my desk. People around here think I am Sassy and I couldn't agree more! Sometimes it takes a Sassy girl to get the job done!
  • Day 14. Clouds- Lots of pretty clouds, light and fluffy! I just pointed my camera straight in the air for this one.
  • Day 15. Car- A Range Rover, my dream car! I am guessing I will never drive one of these bad boys but a girl can dream, or hope that Kim Kardashian reads this and decides to give me her hand me down! Just kidding!
  • Day 16. Sunglasses - These are my sisters sunglasses. (I do not wear sunglasses mostly because I already wear regular glass to see.) She does not enjoy her photo plastered on the interwebs so she allowed me to use her sunglasses for this shot which I dig. I took it as we watched my nephew play baseball - as you can see in the background. 
Thanks for stopping by!

March Madness

I cannot believe we are halfway through March. Now, I know the term March Madness is typically used for the NCAA basketball tournaments, but I feel like March Madness is sweeping through my house.  Spring is emerging, the weather is lovely. It is time to play outdoors, cookout on the grill, and clean the yard. Spring also means tons of kids activities. We are always on the go with baseball, dance class, swim lessons, oh and school fits in there somewhere. So when the kids go to bed and I need to relax I have been making cards. Stamping is therapeutic. You should definitely try it! I will share some of my latest cards soon.

For today I will share a fun card that Kathy taught me how to make. I was so excited when she showed me the reflection technique. It is so easy! Who knew that you could create this magic with window sheets, sticky notes and a brayer!



  • Lovely As A Tree stamp set #115026
  • Glossy White 8 1/2 x 11" card stock #102599
  • Brayer #102395
  • Jet Black Stazon #101406


-March Photo-A-Day-

  • Day 1. Up - The lantern is hung up above my stampin' table. So when I am cutting paper and using my Big Shot it lights up my area.
  • Day 2. Fruit - Bananas and oranges. My kiddos asked for them at the grocery store. They pretended that they were going to eat them. I think they each ate one. I guess that is better than none! 
  • Day 3. Your Neighborhood- This is a photo looking down my block. I love my little neighborhood. It is old and established, I am close to the highway and 7-11. I need to have my slurpee fix! I am also less than ten minutes away from My Man, my parents, sister, grandparents, aunt and uncle and cousins.
  • Day 4. Bedside - I have lotion, chapstick, a book, allergy medicine, a candle, and a glass of water. I bet there are also little toys hidden behind the book. 

  • Day 5. A Smile- My Girl, always smiling! I love her. She always puts a smile on my face in return.
  • Day 6. 5pm - I was driving to take My Girl to dance class. I spend a lot of time in my car!
  • Day 7. Something you wore - These are the earrings I wore that day. I was sick and so I will not share how awful I looked, but I did manage to throw on my favorite earrings.
  • Day 8. Window - The windows at La Loma. One of our favorite mexican restaurants. This place has lots of character.
Happy Friday! What are you taking pictures of these days?
