One more “cuppie” for another b-day friend that I just found out about. I decided to use the fun sketch over at Taylored Expressions for this one and fulfill their challenge while I was at it.

We are spending a quiet Memorial day today. The girls swam with Dad this morning and I got groceries done. We all had hot dogs and homemade fries for lunch then dad and I hit the couch for a nap. yeah! Tonight might have to be an ice cream night 🙂

Hugs all!

Happy Sunday all. I am cranking them out 🙂 I am sure there will be a lull in the action here shortly. But go when the going is good don’t you think. Here are the last two cards from my little stack, these are both made with Taylored Expressions stamps. I just made the connection that Taylor (the owner) is a friend of a friend and not only that she lives in my town so much fun to meet others that love this crafty world! I love the stamps that Taylored Expressions is selling the rubber cling are my absolute favorite and who does not like a smiling cupcake?! There is something wrong with you if you raised your hand. “Cuppie” is too cute! Taylored Expressions has a whole crew of characters and fun product, (besides that she seems extremely nice and has a great smile!) so if you are a crafter you might just want to take a peek. I of course colored my images with my Copics and will be sharing both these cards with friends this week!

Hugs all!

Hi all here are two more of the cards I created this weekend. I will have two more to share tomorrow. I am saving 2 cute ones from a local stamp company that I just discovered I have a friend connection with! The “bun in the oven” stamp is a idea lift from the current challenge over at iCopic i saw this stamp there and just had to have it! iCopic’s challenge this week was cast shadows. these are not some of my best but they will do for a quicky card.

This next card is made with a set of stamps made by Unity. Love their stuff as well. So I have been busy getting a little inky.

Sara is off on a Girl Scout adventure tonight yikes!! And Lori John and I hit Chick-fil-A for lemonade, YUM! Happy Saturday all!

Yes busy busy. Here is the pile of cards I completed this evening. Now if people would stop having events and birthdays maybe I could get some scrapping done! But I am having fun. I will get close ups of more of these in the next few days but here is one completed for the Michelle Perkett weekly challenge. we were supposed to create our own background paper ans I used my Copic air brush system to create the cloud pattern behind my Flower Goddess. I love Michelle Perkett images! But boy do they take a little extra time with all their yummy detail. Off to tuck the girls in, I’ll be back to post more later!

Also this weekend is the last chance to grab my Copic Coloring #1 at the discounted price! So don’t forget to check it out 🙂

Hugs All!

On the family front we are finally winding down. The much needed break of NO evening activities for two whole weeks! Recital is done. And the sun is shining for the moment! We are getting ready for a couple short trips and one grand adventure to Oregon this summer and lots of time at the pool for swim team and diving. Not to mention morning daycamps and fun.

Happy Tuesday all!
