Anthony Lost His First Tooth




Anthony has been wanting to loose a tooth for just over a year now. Many of his friends are a year older and had already started losing theirs. Well, the day after his 7th birthday he was eating an apple and told me, "Mom, this apple is making my teeth feel weird." I had him come over and, sure enough, he had not one, but two loose teeth.


He lost the first one yesterday after I let him buy some boxing gloves while yardsaling yesterday. We are still waiting for the one next to it to come out...and just looking at these pics you can tell it won't be long.
He has also commented "I didn't think loose teeth would make it so hard to eat"....LOL

Blog Candy!!!

Nope this blog candy is not from me, but from another wonderful stamper in Norway. Here is a link to her blog and the candy...http://mayas-hobbyblogg.blogspot.com/2008/07/blog-candy.html

Thanks Tricia for posting about this on your blog...I would never have found this inspiring site without you.

Kitty in a Tree


The button did weird things to the scan, and made the main image a little washed out. The cat is actually a light grey (I think the watercolor pencil name is French Grey).
I used my new set Playful Kitties and an old favorite Running Stitches. The button has scrappers floss on it.
I used an old sketch for the layout.

Bingo Thanks


I received this wonderful card in the mail yesterday from Angela on Paper Wings. I LOVE it! I could not get the scan to do it justice, it washed it out and added weird shadows. Believe me though it is great...in fact when I received it I just set it up in front of me on the table I was working at and stared at it.
THANKs Angela, all my goodies were wonderful

Sanita's Card


I made this quick and fun card for a young girl who was baptized into Christ on Friday. She is such a sweetie, and I am blessed to know her. I used a retired SOTM from TAC for the image(Be Curious), the set "Ordinary Greetings" for the sentiment, and for paper I used the retired TAC patterned paper called Frutti Fusion (at least that is what I think it is called. The cardstock is SU's Green Galore and the pink is Bazzill.

Shielow's Card


Isn't this card adorable? It was made by a good friend of mine to say congrats on my pregnancy. Thanks Shielow
I am not sure where the letters are from, but I do know that the cute little onsie is from a retired TAC stamp called "Just So Sweet"

ATC to Full Card




We were given a challenge on A Shade of Blue by Tricia (see her great blog link in the link to My Favorite Blogs on the side) to make a full card using an ATC card on that full card. This is what I came up with.
Thanks for the challenge Tricia

A Cool Treat




I have been seeing these cute, yet simple cards on different forums, so I decided to try my hand at making one. I used Miss Moxie cardstock, and a tag from the Miss Moxie Soar With it Collection (SWIC). I used a tag because I have a hard time using up all the tags that come in the SWIC, and I just could make myself cut into the beautiful and vibrant paper that comes in this set. The stamp sets I used are: Circle Sampler, Ice Cream, and My Journey. I used a scallop punch for the bite marks.

Mini Golf






Our family went mini golfing Saturday afternoon, and brought Kaleb, a friend from church along. I don't think it was the smartest thing to do since it was HOT and HUMID, but the kids enjoyed it. I thought I would share a couple of pics

Have I Done this One Before?

I found this card on my computer and could not remember if I had put it on my blog or not. I did some quick searches and couldn't find it. So...you get to see it for the first or second time, which ever it is.
Stamp Set: I Love Easter (I love this set because it does not HAVE to be used for just Easter cards)
Supplies: Bitty Blossoms, mini brads, Uptown Girl paper, and black cardstock.

Amberly Grace V




All done with Amberly Grace cardstock and patterned paper, withthe exception of the dark brown on the scrapbook page. That is TACs brown cardstock.
The Monogram card (one of my least favorite of all I sent in) was done using Butterbees and More (for the background), Circle Sampler, and Swirly Bet.
The Scrapbook page uses Simplebet, Alpha Grunge (still my favorite alpha) and Butterbees and More.
