Hey Everyone!

Hello! It's been awhile again since I updated...sorry!! I get so busy with work and other things during the week that my blog is the last thing on my mind (I know it is hard to believe that there is life outside of stamping!). Thought I'd check in and share some things. Today I went to the Educational Warehouse store to buy some classroom decorations. Turns out I had 2 $15 coupons with my frequent buyer card, so I saved $30, woo-hoo! My Dad and Mom went with me, I love taking my Dad because he always goes crazy and insists on buying everything the store has to offer for teachers (which I love!)! As we were paying, he noticed a butterfly garden at the counter and asked the sales lady what it was, and she explained that you can buy a butterfly "farm" and hatch your own...next thing I know I am the proud owner of a future butterly "farm" and ladybug "farm". I just said it's a good thing we study the life cycle in 2nd grade! I got lots of other neat stuff...but my favorite is a box full of clip art pictures that can be copied and colored or used for anything. There are over 180 pictures, including ideas to use the pictures for. It was a splurge, but worth it!

These cards are somethings I've been working on lately. Above is a set of 4 cards I made to have on hand for a gift. I used the stamp set...sorry can't remember the name, but is current SU!, and a Hero Arts sentiment stamp set which looks like it is ribbon, and a Hero Arts borders set. Patterned paper is by Die Cuts with a View (Pocket full of Posies).

These two cards are ones I made with some of my new A*Muse stamps, the margarita glass and the saying "When life gives you limes...make Margaritas". Paper is also Dies Cuts with a View (Nana's Kids) I love the simplicity and the font for the saying! Cute, cute, cute (that was for you, Sara!) Enjoy, have a great weekend!!
