Gone Crazy

Peachy Love today, here's an awesome image from Lizzy Love! You know I adore her beautiful art work, esp those girls!  they are too cute and quirky.  I just got a whole handful of images in her most recent sale so you will be seeing more and more cards with her images.  

She's having a great contest on her blog, HERE, the theme is using peach, not sure if this is considered peachy, but it's as close as I had.  LOL, does her face look like a big peach?  at any rate, I am happy to share her wonderful stamp today.

Cheers, Holley

Summer of Naps

Here's a fun card I made for the SUMMER theme contest over at Cat's Pajamas.  You see, for teachers and staff at the local school district, summer means relaxation and well, NAPs for a lot of us, most especially ME.  Woo HOO!!  and I feel about as special as the cute dog in this picture, perched on my purple pillow with a crown and everything.  

Hope you are having a great summer to and I hope you get to enjoy a nice nap now and again even if you don't enjoy the summer off like I do.

p.s. check out the Cat's Pajamas website, too awesome, their stamps are just adorable and their contests have a wonderful prizes.

No Prob-Llama

Thought a little LLama card would be some fun today.  Here's a quick and cute card that I made up when someone gave me a bunch of adorable LLama embellishments.  TOO FUN.  This year for easter, my hubby bought me a hilarious stuffed llama, though, more the shape of a round ball, it has a llama face on it, but definitely is more shaped like an easter egg lol!  Too soft though, so I love it.

Hope you are having a great week.  Drop by tomorrow for a brand new card using new images from Sandra Caldwell!

Sweet pea Stamps

Here's  a stamp from Sweet Pea stamps that I got a long time ago, but also this image comes from The East Wind.  I just love their images so much. I was so excited when Sweet Pea stamps made their images into rubber.   I miss Sweet Pea stamps, I worked for them for many many years.

Speaking of, I am selling goodies in several Facebook groups, including a bunch of Sweet Pea stamps, if you are interested, email or check me out on facebook and I can give you a link to the sale pages.  Cheers, Holley

Take a Chill Pill

Here's one of my favorite stamp line from Taylored Expressions, they are the Grumplings.  TOO FUN.  They are all quirky little animals with sarcastic sayings.  Needless to say, I own them ALL.  They are too perfect.  Right now in TX, I need a chill pill, or just give me a full prescription of them because summer is going to be HOT! HOT! HOT!

Have a great weekend everyone.

Be open to change

Here's a large rectangular card, just telling you that it is large so you can understand the size of the image from Unity stamp.  I love the sentiment, it goes perfect with the image, "be open to change." but also, for people like me, who have gone through brain surgery, it definitely has a double meaning.

So, be open to change, like me, it could bring something wonderful.

Happy Birthday Dad

Happy Birthday to my father today. I hope you have some special plans and have a great Birthday.  Many blessings for your special occasion.

Passport

Here's a hilarious card from Bugaboo.  I just love their lady stamps, both the little old ladies, the cute little girls, the goth type kids and the pretty ladies.  They have a wonderful variety at their store.  This stamp just cracks me up.  I think it is telling me that I need to make a trip this summer.  But alas, I will be spending it at home.  Oh well.  I am so thankful for the amazing trip I got to make last year.  So fabulous!



Hopefully in the upcoming year I can make another trip and go back there.  I still have many things I would love to see.  Hugs all, Holley

Be-YOU-tiful

Here's an adorable stamp from CC Designs. I love their cute little girl stamps.  I colored her up with Copic Markers.  I also added a sentiment, "be YOU tiful"  I thought that was just perfect with her cute costume.  Hope you love her.

The staff has completed their workdays this week and now has off for the summer.  There's several of our employees who are leaving us this year.  I will really miss them!  Have a wonderful summer everyone!

Condolence cards are hard to make....

One of the more difficult cards to make is Condolence cards.  I found this kit made by Anna Griffen for just such occasions.  I think the card looks clean and simple and yet elegant for the needed occasion.  I don't have a current occasion for such a card, thankfully, but when such an occasion occurs, I don't exactly feel like making a card.  I go to an elderly church, we lose about 10 members a year..

Hope you are having a great day!

Happy Memorial Day

I had to get in one more cat theme card this month for the current CAT challenge, HERE.... It's so fun to always have a great place to share your kitty theme cards.  This stamp comes from Stamps By Judith, who has since stopped making stamps. I sure did LOVE her rubber (wood mounted) images.

I added a cat theme saying, "Have a purr-fect day"  TOO fun.  I hope you are all having a PURR-fect day.  Cheers, Holley
