I love Hello Kitty!

Do you still love Hello Kitty? I do... I will admit it. I no longer buy it and it looks like all of my excuses for buying it are ... growing up (my nieces)!! But I still love it! I think I always will!

Today these cards are featured on the PSA Stamp Camp. You can go HERE to see the post and supply lists. You should also check out all of the posts on PSA this week. It is licenses week! Each day is a post devoted to the different license stamps that PSA Essentials carries! Fun stuff!!

Well... it is Friday! Wooooo Hoooo! :) I don't work outside of home but Friday means Michael is off so I still get excited about having family time (and help... ha) for the weekend!

Today I have a hair appointment and I am thrilled! My natural curl hair-do is what works best for me these days but as it starts getting longer... it has too much weight and my hair just won't do a thing. Not without me having to straighten it anyway and I just don't have time to do that. Or I don't make the time to do that! :) So I have had my hair up in pretty much a bun for about a month! I am soooo ready to get it cut!

I hope you have a fantastic weekend!! Thanks for visiting!

Peace and Love!

Hello!! This is my first post this week! This has been a hectic week.... it has been a hectic month for that matter!

We have had lots going on around here... including having to put our dog, Buddy, to sleep a couple of days ago! :( I just haven't felt a lot like posting this week! I had planned to go back to my 'live' posting and now I remember why I started scheduling a weeks worth of posts! If I don't... I don't seem to post that often. BUT... all that said... maybe I will do better now! We'll see how it goes! :)

My husband was gone to New Orleans on a mission trip all last week. Today he has taken the day off to spend time with us. Carver has worn him out today so Michael is napping and Carver is in 'rest time'! I plan to go clean out/purge our closet. I decided to put that off a minute and post a few cards! :)

The cards that I am posting today are all rejects from the latest PC Sketch call!

Hope you have a great day! I am off to clean a closet I guess! :)

Peace and Love!

350 Cards and Gifts Publication

Happy Wednesday!

Today I wanted to post one of the projects that I had published in Paper Crafts 350 Cards and Gifts! Wow... talk about a great issue! I have to be honest and say that I usually flip through my mag pretty quickly when I first get them. I put them aside until I can take a little more time to look through them. Sometimes that may take a week or so!

I flipped through this mag two days ago and I am dying to be able to sit down and go back through it! I keep thinking about it!! Truly a wonderful issue!! So many great projects... I just really can't say enough about it!! My 3 projects are nothing... I am not going on and on about it because of my projects. I just kept thinking to myself as I flipped through that I couldn't believe the amount of amazing submissions that the PC gals had to sort through!

Okay... it is late. It is officially Wednesday but still my Tuesday night! :) I am going to bed!

Thanks for visiting!

Peace and Love!
