Spring is trying to get through....

...but it won't be Spring-like here in Conifer this weekend with highs only in the 30s!! Brrrrr!! I still wanted to post a Springtime card for you, though, so here's one featuring stamps from TCP's "Blow" set :)

Time to play!

Morning, all! It's TCP Tuesday again, and our terrific hostess is Joanne, who came up with a super color combo for us all to play along with: turquoise, red and ivory. Click here to head over to Joanne's blog for the scoop on this week's challenge! I pulled out my "Fun in the Sun" stamp set and decided to have fun with layers of different papers :) Thanks for stopping by!

Ballet Bunny :)

Here's another TCP sample for you - this one is quite simple, but I really like how it turned out. The stamp set is called "Tutu Much" and features 3 bunny images and several different sentiments.
I hope you had a great week - work for me was busy, but fun :) We got more snow throughout the day yesterday - almost a foot, but it seems to be tapering off this morning. Have a super weekend, whatever you're up to!

Spring has sprung!

Hi all, I hope you're having a great weekend :) I'm back with another Springtime card made using the super new stamps from The Cat's Pajamas. This set is called "Blow" - doesn't the bunny look peaceful lying down on the mushroom?
Only 6 weeks of school left until Summer break - I can't believe it! Unfortunately, I don't know if I'll be in the office next year or not - our district has had to cut millions of dollars for this coming year (like many other districts throughout the country), and one secretarial position has been cut from each high school. Those displaced secretaries, because of their seniority, need jobs and as a result all of us who took on our position in the past year have been cut. I am very sad; I love my job, as I'm sure you all know. Keep your fingers crossed for me as I am on a recall list for a year...

New Release Blog Hop from The Cat's Pajamas!'s that time again :) It's TCP Tuesday along with a blog hop to celebrate the release of brand new stamps from The Cat's Pajamas! Since I'm the hostess this week, I get to kick off the blog hop - and it's an inspiration challenge. Use this hip bedding set from Target as your inspiration, and show us what you come up with! You can start here for the hop, and as you jump from blog to blog you'll get to see tons of terrific samples that the Cat Pack has created for your viewing pleasure!

For my card I used the "Hola Tequila" set - those penguins are back! I love the dots on the bedding, and chose patterned paper with dots to make my card. I also added some stitching with some terrific linen embroidery thread that Alma is carrying - it's easy to work with, and fuzz-free, so it's perfect for using on cards :) And's time for you to hop over to Ana's blog for your next stop - tell her I sent you! Have a great day - and enjoy the fun!
