FTH #75



It's challenge day over at From the Heart Stamps and we hope that you join in the fun.  We have a sketch and a twist (the twist is to use buttons) Here is a peek at the sketch. You can use one or the other, or both! I've just used the sketch today.

My image is from the Birdbrains Chick line line, called Rainy Day Birdbrains.  I love all these cute images and coordinating sentiments. Hope you will play along for a chance to win some images!

Don't forget to stop by FTHS on Friday for our Summer/Sunshine blog hop.  There are big prizes up for grabs this month!

Doodle Pantry: Float Yer' Goat

I am a BIG fan of stupid jokes so when I saw this set over at Doodle Pantry, I knew that I had to have it.  It's called "Float Yer' Goat"  I don't know what I love more about this image, those gorgeous balloons or that goofy expression on the goat!  Love it!

You can get this set and many other fabby images over at Doodle Pantry.  Be sure to check out the freebies that are available.  This month, you can get the Happy Camper set for FREE!

DP: Fab and Funky!


Fab and Funky is taking a walk on the "wild side!"  They want to see your wild animals.  Since Doodle Pantry is sponsoring their "walk, " I wanted to make sure that I played along.  I fell in love with this hippo as soon as I saw it.  It's Henrietta Hippo and while she doesn't look terribly "wild" she definitely meets the cute factor!

I really do hope that you join in the fun over at Fab and Funky!

DP: Send a Smile 4 Kids


It's Christmas in July over at Send a Smile 4 KidsDoodle Pantry is sponsoring their challenge so I wanted to be sure to participate.  I love this image of Laurie's.  It's called Vintage Stocking.  I loved the colors ... sooo non-traditional and REALLY fun!

Today is also my youngest son's birthday.  I now have a nine-year old!

Thankfully he wanted a swim party so we're headed out to the YMCA to host 20 kiddos swimming.

SSMIS: Pat


July is Pat's month to host our Monthly Image challenge and she presented us with this wonderful image from Art Impressions.  It's called: "29 Again?"  The image only has one balloon, but for some reason, I was compelled to give her a second one.

Bugaboo had a fun sketch this week so I used that one.  I had a blast making your card, I hope you enjoy it Pat!

Doodle Pantry July Release


Since July has arrived, it's time for another new release from Doodle Pantry.  This set, called Happy Trails Camper, is actually a re-release from a set sold by CDS.
 
How cute is this set?  The great thing is that it's the FREE set this month over at the Doodle Pantry shop!  So many cute phrases and they are totally useful.

We just got back from our Fourth of July camping trip.  It was a success.  I was a little worried that it wouldn't go over well but little dude had a good time despite his germ/bug anxieties.  Here's a picture of the other one enjoying the KNIFE that his dad decided to buy the boys.

SSW2: Sami Stamps


It's another Wednesday and that means another challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  This week we are sponsored by Sami Stamps.  She is offering a great prize of a $12 gift certificate to her shop.

We have a blast from the past sketch.  Originally unveiled in June in 2013, it's making it's way around again.  If you are curious about what my card looked like last time, click here

We also have a TWIST this week.  It's to use buttons and bows.  Did you notice that my card, while cute, has neither a button nor a bow?  Oops.  I blame lack of sleep.

I urge you to hurry over to the blog and leave some love for my teamies (who DID follow the Twist!).
