Yesterday was Geri's (Manitoba Stamper is her fabulous blog) birthday and I am late to the party. So sorry Geri...but on the bright side in my family we celebrate for the entire month so you really have a few more days to party. Geri is an incredible card maker, I love the clean and classy look she creates with paper and stamps. I wanted to make something festive and fun so I pulled out some of the goodies from my Shaker and Sprinkle kit, there is so much fun stuff to play with. If you want to see where the party stated head over to Bev's blog, here is the link. Once again, Happy Birthday Geri! Thank you so much for stopping by...enjoy your week!
Two more cards to share for the day. We had a busy day of clothes shopping and I was surprised as to how quickly we found what we needed and got home. We headed out to the Livermore Outlets, it was so stinkin' hot out there, 100 degrees! I was surprised that there were so many people out shopping in the heat, this is not an enclosed mall. I could never live in this area...way to hot!
Once home I decided to get busy with some card making and have a couple more to share. My first card is for the ColourQ challenge...the color combination is so pretty I could not resist. I remember a card being made similar to this when these stamps were released from PTI some time back. This why I wanted this set and my first time playing with them.
My second card is for CASology and this week's cue card is fun...I had to search for this set that I have had forever from Flourishes. I love the look of silhouettes and these children running, having so much fun. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Happy Saturday....I have one card to share today, it is for the current challenge over at Colour Me...! At first I really struggled with the colors, I have lots of rejects in my recycle bin to prove it. So after spending some time thinking about how to make the colors work I came up with this. I love these butterfly dies from PTI and thought they might look nice layered. I was having trouble finding something gold to add to my card and found these Kaiser pearls floating around, I love the way they look. Thank you so much for taking time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Happy Tuesday...a quick post today with one card for the current challenge at AAA Cards, #12 - Inspire and Curtain Call - Anything Goes. It was a quick card to make and love that I have one more card ready for Christmas...thank you so much for taking time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your day!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. I have one more card to share, it is for Colour Me #29 and Inkspirational #61 - Splash. The colors for this week's Colour Me challenge are just perfect for the Fanfare die from Lil Inkers don't you think...fun waves. Thank you so much for stopping by...enjoy the rest of your weekend.
This a photo of my hubby's garden, it is such a treat to have fresh veggies to eat every day. Yesterday he picked 3 gallon size bags of green beans and 4 large cucumbers. We have peppers, lot so very hot peppers like Ghost, Habanero, Serrano and Jalapenos too. Fresh carrots, heirloom tomatoes and eggplants are yummy too. I have plenty to share, come on over.
