Rainy Wednesday

Here is North Carolina it is a very rainy day.  That's okay though.  We have put down grass seed and planted trees and moved trees--rain is a good thing!

Today I want to share a project that I have been working on lately.  I hope to get some sales for Easter and Mother's Day.  As much as I would like to help the family finances with my stamping hobby, I am happy if I just make enough to get a pedicure every two weeks!  Maybe when I retire from my full-time job I can dive into Stampin' Up and make some real money.  In the meantime, I am having a blast with all the cool tools and fabulous papers and ribbons.

Love, love, love these little bunnies!  Have a great Wednesday!

Spring Day Ahead

Today is going to be in the 80's!  Woo Hoo!!!!  I am so ready for warm weather.  I just wanted to make a quick post this morning.  It has almost been a week since my last post.  I have been working on some items for my sister to sell at a craft sale at her school the first week of April.  I didn't take a picture of the cute little boxes I made so I will have to make up a few more so I can capture them.  So come back soon to see them.  They are soooo cute!

Today I want to share a card that I made quite a while back, but didn't have square envelopes.  Now I do so this was photographed and added to my stash.  I sold this stamp set so this is definitely a one of a kind card for me!

Blessed Mother

I am blessed to have a loving, talented Mother. She will be 80 years old on April 7th and she is amazing. She loves to cook and trips to her house always add a few pounds to my body. But it is definitely worth it! In years past, she has been a superb seamstress and gardener. The thing I love about my mother the most is her faith in her children. She has always encouraged me to do my best and has been a great example for me to follow. She and my Dad have been married for over 60 years. Wow!!!
When I saw the new SU set "Blessed Mother", I thought of my Mother. This card is in honor of her.

March is Birthday Month!

March is such a big birthday month for our family. There are six family members and three good friends with March birthdays. Needless to say, I have been devoting most of my stamping time to fulfilling this need. Most of them are men, so I am really challenged to make cards without a lot of frills. Here is the card I made for my hubby who will be turning 55 on March 27. Gotta love the "Lovely as a Tree"!!

March is Marching On

We are having a beautiful Spring here in North Carolina. It is still not warm enough for me to want to be outside in the garden very much, but by the end of this week that should change. March Madness provided much stamping time for me this past week-end and I have several items to share. I will give one a day so I have blog posts for the entire week! Woo Hoo!! When I started this blog I had no idea it would be so difficult to post daily.

 The first project for this week is a baby card I made for one of my Sunday School girls. A few years ago I taught a 5th grade girls class. Now, one of them has a baby! I am feeling really old! I used the Baby Bundle stamp set and pretty papers from the Sweet Pea stack. I know Destiny will like the card and especially the Target gift card tucked inside.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Monday!

Where Does the Time Go?

Just because I have not posted to my blog doesn't mean I have been idle. I have been crocheting every spare minute I have and when I am home, these mini clip boards have been my passion. My sister and I are planning to do a couple of craft shows this fall and I wanted to get started on some things. I understand that these are great items that sell well.
Hope you enjoy!
