Will you be my Quarantine?

Will you be my Quarantine?  I am guessing a lot of people have suddenly gotten a lot CLOSER to their loved ones.  LOL!  For some it was good for others, hmmm, not so much.  For me and my DH, it's been good.  We get along great and it's nice to have him around all the time.  He can easily and productively work from home.
I love this adorable set, it's free at the Cat's Pajamas website, it's called the Social Distancing Digi, check it out HERE.  They also have a great contest every month called the TCP Tuesday Challenge, join in!

Toilet Paper, anyone?

Here's a wonderful stamp from The Cat's Pajamas using a great digi stamp set that they gave out in their store for free!  This adorable stamp comes from the Social Distancing Set, find it HERE.  I made this cute card for their contest this month, click HERE for that.

Hope you enjoyed this funny card today.  I will say my local grocery store, the neighborhood one that is just a block away (not the mega store that is a couple miles from here) STILL only has like 1 small selection of toilet paper.  Seriously people?

I like...

Here's a hilarious stamp combination from The Cat's Pajamas Rubber Stamps. I just love their funny images, esp the fun coffee theme stamps that they have.  I can't believe we are on our last week of school now, though today is a day off.  The last day of school is the 28th and the teacher's last day is the 29th.  That's weird as last year the teacher's had a whole work week after the kids were off.
They have a fun contest on their blog, check it out!  I love to share my TCP cards with them each month.  Have a great last week of May and if this is your last week (or your kid's last week) of school, have a great start to summer.

Hope you have a great weekend!  Cheers, Holley

I'm tired of this virus!

Here's an awesome image from Ike's Art.  Add with it a funny saying that I typed up on my computer. I think the attitude on the cat goes well with the attitude of this sentiment.  I'm tired of this virus!  I know we are all tired of this virus and the effect that it is having on the whole world!  All the death and devastation it has caused people, physically emotionally and financially.

Huge hugs out there to everyone who has been effected by it. I pray we will all pull TOGETHER as one and get through all this together.

Two winner items went in the mail today:  Jeanie Ellis and Jean M.

Just for laughs!

Here's a hilarious image from a Tim Holtz set. I just love these cats. I am sure you notice that the same artist has also made wonderful stamp images for Katzel Krafts as well as  Cat's Pajamas Rubber Stamps. I do so adore them.  This stamp set comes with a variety of Hilarious sayings which all made me laugh!  This card says, "At times I'm grateful that thoughts don't actually appear in bubbles over our heads."  

How hilarious is that?  I also added some cute tiny buttons and some lovely lace from Turkiye.  Hope this card gave you a little chuckle today!

Had to add this funny I HEART You image into the DH week on the blog.  I am sure he would get a little chuckle out of this card at least.  Actually I think it looks a little creepy to me, at least that is what I thought when it was finished.  Only he would appreciate it, lol!

I wish I could say where this image came from, if you know, I would love to be reminded. It is a digi stamp that I downloaded.  The name doesn't have the name of the company it is from though.

Have a great weekend!  Cheers, Holley

OK, so here's how the prizes winners were chosen.  I took everyone's name ONCE, chopped up paper to evenly sized pieces and wrote your name plus USA or NON USA on it and put it in baggies to mix them up

Then I had the hubby pick three names from each baggie, three from the USA Baggie and three from the Non-USA baggie, Here's the names selected, AFTER they were REMIXED and drawn again to put them in random order, THIS BELOW is the order winners will choose their prizes in:

When you go to the prize page. please tell me which prize you want, by giving me the number on the prize, that will help a lot.  Each person will pick all three of their prizes at once.  So if you are the first person on the list, EMAIL me you list of choices and I will put it HERE so the other winners know which prizes are taken.

I also decided to pick a handful of bonus winners to get 2 prizes each from the remaining prizes, so I TOOK ALL the USA and NON USA names, put them all in one baggie and picked THREE more winners!!  You will pick AFTER the prize winners in the order chosen, you get TWO items each.

You will pick after #6 above picks.

Since we are picking cards just for the DH this week, I had to pick at least one Coffee theme card. I do seem to love coffee theme cards and making them a lot more than I like drinking it.  My husband however--he's a real coffee lover!  For real.  So here's a coffee theme card just for him.

Have a caffeine filled day today!  (if this was my week, it would be coffee AND donuts, but since it's his week, just coffee).

Cheers, Holley

Happy Birthday DH!

Sharing this adorable Whipper Snapper card today for the DH's Birthday.  I  hope he has a wonderful day even though we are stuck at home.  His party will consist of me, him and a big PB Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory (assuming they still deliver it).  I hope he likes it.   He said he didn't want anything this year, so I plan on making a donation to the Austin Area (Capitol of Texas) Food Bank in his honor.  I know that is his favorite local charity.

Hope he has a special day!  I will make sure to shower him in love and kisses.

Do I go with this card for his birthday?

Thought of perhaps a sexy card for the DH's bday this year, but hmmmm, I am still looking through my stamps to decide.  At any rate, I made this card with him using a stamp from Slinky Tarts.  I think they have since changed their name, but I don't recall what the new name is. If anyone knows that, please just leave a comment for me.

Also using some great Turkish Lace on this card.  Really makes me miss being in Turkiye but they much like us, are completely closed down, in their homes.  Their kids have a TV channel which shows school everyday and they do computer time with their teachers.  It's like the whole world has all stopped at once together.  May we all pray this comes to an end by 2020.

So my DH bday is this week (the 13th), so I have decided I would choose cards this week that are for him.  I will start with this one.  It's from a simple card kit, but I changed it totally from the stuff they gave me.

I feel for those who are having Birthdays this year during the pandemic, esp those who would much prefer to be having big parties and other such events.  My DH is just fine staying home and being together but I know a lot of people wish for other things.  Thank you so much if you refrain and choose to stay home!
