Retirement Card

It's not Monday anymore, but it's still a card using up some supplies, so I'll tag it Oldie Moldie Monday, I hope that's ok. This is for a lady who's retiring and taking some time off to learn how to sail. She'll be missed, she's so amazing at her job, but I know she'll thoroughly enjoy her retirement.

Hope you're having a great day!

A Friend is Someone...

Well, the weekend is almost over. Hope it was a good one for you. I think the only problem with weekends is that they fly by way too fast!
We attended our DD's last music recital this afternoon and we're into the last week of school. High school exams are done and things are really winding down. I love this time of year.

Here's my card to share today. I love these bright pink blossoms... seems like summer is finally here! It's another one for the Caardvarks Pink Challenege.

Make a Wish

TGIF!!! I love Friday's. The work week is over and the weekend is just around the corner. And there's only one week of school left! Yay! I'm so looking forward to summer. To lazy days and going back home to visit family.

Today though, I have laundry and cleaning and errands. I guess there has to be some work before the fun, right??

Here's my card for today. The patterned paper is from Scenic Route, rhinestones are from Prima, flowers are from Sandylion and the sentiment is from Studio G.

Another one for the Caardvarks Pink Challenge.

Hope you're having a Fabulous Friday!

Happy Birthday

Last January, at my fist ever CHA with Simply Sentiments magazine, I was thrilled to meet a ton of wonderful people. It was just amazing to actually meet the people who were behind creating and bringing all the fabulous products to market. One of the nicest bunch of ladies we met were from Webster's Pages. They couldn't have been nicer to us. I've been a fan of Webster's Pages ever since, their paper is just beautiful! So I was happy to find out that the Webster's Pages crew have started a community where we can get all kinds of inspiration using their products, chat and have a chance to win some prizes. The site is called inspireME.
Take a peek when you get a chance. There are some amazing ideas on there and some very creative ladies.

So here's my Monday card using Webster's Pages paper and Audrey Pettit's June sketch on inspireMe. This Card also fits in with Caardvarks Pink Challenge

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Father's Day

I'm surprised they haven't kicked me out of 'blogdom' it's been so long since I've posted!! This time of year is always crazy around here. The end of the school year is always busy as are all the activities that are winding down and the new ones just starting. Our last dance recital is tomorrow, the last music concert is next Sunday. High school exams are starting and end of the year parties abound. Where do I fit in to all of this hubbub??? I'm the designated taxi driver...my time is not my own anymore! I wouldn't have it any other way, but I am really looking forward to summer vacation and the relaxed schedule that it brings.
