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.

One card...many challenges


Happy Saturday...I have one card and a few little DIY note pads to share. My card is for several challenges, ColourQ #250, Curtain Call - Anything Goes and Addicted to Stamps #104. My day has been nice an quiet, I have been hanging out in my craft room most of the day and enjoying every minute of it. Thank you so much for taking time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your weekend.



Addicted to Stamps and More!



These little note pads are so much fun and very quick to make. The sweet little city scene is a case from Marybeth's note pad. I loved the look of this and did not really change anything about her design. You can see Marybeth's here at Marybeth's Time for Paper.

ColourQ #250, House of Cards and a few coin purses...


Happy Saturday...wishing everyone a wonderful weekend. Mine is going to be a nice and quiet one, so happy about that. I need to apologize for not being around this week to comment, I have had computer issues this week (how did we all survive before computers???) and it was finally fixed on Friday night. My week was pretty busy too, so not too much crafting either, not that I need my computer to make a card, but it is good company. So I am a bit behind on commenting and will do my best to get caught up over the weekend.
My card is for this week's challenge at ColourQ #250 and House of Cards - Just add a Bow. And for fun, I have 3 coin purses to share too. I love making these sweet little things, they are rather quick to sew together and so much fun. Thank you so much for taking time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your weekend.

2 cards for Saturday and a Giant's game too...


What a fabulous day! My sweet daughter took me to a San Francisco Giant's game today, it was my Mother's Day gift and we had an amazing day. And to make the day even more special, it was Dave Dravecky Day, what an amazing man and ball player, so inspiring.  And all the old Giant's players were there too, so many wonderful memories of games from back in the 1980's and so many tear jerking stories too, I thought there was no crying in baseball??? So thank you again Ashleigh, I had the time of my life!


Now on to my cards...2 of them for the same challenge. I fell in love with this week's colors at ColourQ Challenge #249, so I could not stop at one. My first card is using a NBUS that I won from The Alley Ways Stamps, Mrs. Rogers Neighborhood, their stamps are very whimsical and fun. While looking around their site for some inspiration I found that they added cut files for most of their stamp sets, so much more affordable too...a $1.50 for cut files for an entire stamp set!


My second card is using a wonderful set from Verve...Poppy Birthday and I took some inspiration from Joyce's card at Cards-By-The-Sea and you can see her card here. Thank you so much for stopping by to peek at my cards...enjoy the rest of your weekend!
