Guest Designer Mel C

Here's an awesome card that was shared with me by Mel C using the stamps that she won from Deadsea Toons!  How awesome is this creation?  I just love it in black and white with a hint of color around the candle.  Great job Mel!  Thought it was perfect for a share on Halloween, which is also my Brother in Law's birthday

Happy Hallow's Eve!

I need a hug

Here's a cute fall time card, though we are far from fall time here. It's a blistering sun still in Texas.  But perhaps I am wishing for a TINY (and I mean TINY) bit of fall.  This cute comes from Unity stamps and I added a saying from them "I need a hug".  Don't you love that tiny brown bow?
I need a hug, it's been an ugly weather week, which stinks here at school when you deal with an all outdoor (aka portables) campus.  Esp when you have children with special hearing needs that don't need to get wet.

Rise Above it All

I thought I would add another back to school theme card for week 2 of school (IN PERSON).  The kids are all seeming very excited.  That's what is so sweet about elementary school kids.  They are always happy about coming back to school.  Not always true for the older kids.

This cute image comes from CC Designs.  I had it as a digi stamp.  It may have even been a freebie that they gave away at one time or another, but it is SO darn cute I bet I would have bought it given the chance!

I know that tiny Back to school sentiment comes from Taylored Expressions, I am not sure off the top of my head who does the Rise about it all sentiment. If you know please tell me. (I am thinking Unity but not sure!)
