It's a rainy, rainy day here. I LOVE it. My FIL is out back pouring concrete and I'm helping the kids with their homework. Life is good and busy. I didn't even get upset when I heard a crashing noise and found this in the kitchen. Notice the blur that is Jonah at the bottom of the pic. Accidents happen right? I'm tired and I wanna take a nap. Tortellini soup for dinner cuz it sounds amazing. Hope y'all have a great day.

Bug Birthday

"Sending you Worm Wishes on your Bug Day"
My kiddos had a birthday party to go to today and I wanted to make a fun card for the new eight year old. A little bug vignette if you will. I really like this set...I should use it more often. Hope you're all having a sweet day! My in-laws will be here shortly so I'd better go straighten up!

Angel of Mine

I love this southwestern angel stamp by StampAMania. They're a company out of New Mexico. They're wood block stamps used to have laser cut images in the wood. I'm happy to own a few. I wanted to try her a bit more subdued this time (see below for other variations). I think I like her bold though and colored with prismas and gamsol. I can't believe I ever used to dread coloring a stamped image. It's so therapeautic. So my two oldest are off to their second day of school. Aaron and I are trying to find things to occupy his time...he doesn't want to go outside by his lonesome. Have a great day!

Loco Lizard

Bright little guy isn't he? I had a blast coloring him in. Hope you're having a wonderful day. This is our last day of summer vacation. School starts tomorrow. It will be an early morning.

Farewell NM

My mom has just left my house this morning. They're moving across country to Pennsylvania. I feel so sad right now. She's never been more than a state away and now I'm not sure when I'll see her again. I'm praying she'll get to come here every once in a while too. She raised my brother and I all on her own and taught me so much about being a good person I don't think I'll ever be able to live up to her example. She's also a grandma who spoils her grandkids rotten with candy. My mom's got a crazy side too...I can't remember how many times I've told her, "TMI, mom, TMI!!!". Well I'm off to work out and get outta this slump. Have a super day.

Tangerine Tango Baby!!!

I don't think I've done a monochromatic card ever or at least not in a REALLY long time. The paisley CB background is probably one of my favorites...I just added some extra TT ink to make it pop. Hope you're all having a great day. Did a workout by Jillian this morning...I'm dying.

Floral Fun

One of my fave color combos. Real Red, Cameo Coral and Kiwi Kiss. Just a simple little note card. Hope you all have a great day!

PS all those in the ABQ area...just wanted to let you know NOT to eat at Taco Sal. Really bad experience there.
