Its getting closer to Fall...

Hi there!!

I am anxiously awaiting fall.  So, I thought I would use this beautiful new stamp from Just for Fun Stamps.  A leaf, oh how I love, a falling leaf.  It has been so hot and humid here that I am so excited for fall.


I arranged lots of paper strips to create this background.   I used several color inks to stamp this Stamptangle Maple leaf for the card.  Welcome Fall!!!

Have a great day!

Lets Talk


Hello there!!!
How are you all today?  I created this CAS card. 
 Don't you love this new Just for Fun Stamptangle House Wren bird stamp? 
 One of my new favorites.   I thought the sentiment Lets Talk was appropriate
 because he just looks like he is ready to say something.  
I used the distressed inks on the edges. 
 I used colored pencils and markers on the wings and beak.  

Find that special someone, give them a call and talk (maybe about rubber stamping-L.O.L.)
Have a great day!

A Big Bouquet of Flowers

Supplies:
 Just for Fun Stamps:  F 3812 Brushed Rose  
Get Well Soon from Sentiments 1 Unmounted Sentiment Sheet

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day!!
Guess who is having birthday?
My little Neptune, my little friend and companion.  5 years old :)I just wanted to share this sweet picture of my pup who is turning 5 this month.
 


Well, I don't know anyone having a birthday until July but I bet that birthday cards are the most used.  Just my guess, or perhaps they are most used by me.  With Thinking of You coming in a close second.
I love this background!! So many ways to use it !  I will probably try it with a solid color also.







Supplies:  Just for Fun Stamp:  Stamptangle Pattern Background H3803
                                                  Happy Birthday Sentiment from Birthday Unmounted Sheet

Fabulous Book

I love it when I find a great Christian Fiction book......here it is...

Finding Me by Kathryn Cushman


From the Back Cover

What would you do if you learned your life was a lie?
All her life, Kelli Huddleston has been told the story of a fire--a fire that killed her mother and two siblings when she was an infant. After her father's death though, she uncovers evidence of a different story, including clippings about a boat accident that killed a young father and his infant daughter. And Kelli quietly realizes the story of her life has been a fiction.

My Review

The story started out a little slow but as you got into it, the characters came alive. I thought it was a beautiful story, refreshing, not what I was expecting.
Kelli grows up believing her life only to find out after her father dies that her father had made up her life.  She struggles with telling the others in her family or keeping the secret.  Twists and turns and a tough choice Kelli has to make  It just shows you that sometimes people the closest to you, you may not know them at all. Makes you think about your own life. Wonderful Read!

I highly recommend this.  I was given book for free however it is a great book and worth purchasing. 

Thanks for stopping by.
