Hello, Sister?

Hello Friends and Family,
It's time for a new Challenge over at Loves Rubberstamps and it's everyone's favorite!  Anything Goes!  We have two fabulous sponsors - The Cutting CafĂ© & SugarPea Designs!  So in addition to the store voucher, you will also win from our sponsors!!! yeah, I love a triple win!    I also am so head over heels in love with all the SugarPea Designs and I have an every growing collection of cute images!!!  I am so happy Laura carries them at the Loves Rubberstamps Store.  She will be adding the Newer images as well, but if there is one that you know you want, just shoot her an email and she can add that to your order. 
Have you seen the NEW ITEMS at the Loves Rubberstamps Store?  She is adding the cutest stamps and dies!!! 
This image reminds me of my Sister and I when we were kids.  We are five years a part but my Sister used to play games with me and humor me, lol.   This was always a favorite of mine, playing telephone.  I remember we used to do this at camp too.  So fun! 
I can't wait to see your fabulous creations.  Thanks for looking in on me,

A work of Heart

Hi Friends and Stampers!

Happy Holly-Day! It's my turn to post on the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog.  Wow, what a great weekend I had. We took the kids to Anaheim, California on Friday, checked into the Camelot Motel, (Which I highly recommend), they went swimming and we went to Captain Kids Buffet, (oh boy did they love that!) for dinner. On Saturday we went to DisneyLand for the day!!! We have done the two day passes before and it's always felt like one day too many to me, lol. I haven't been for a while and it's just not that far away for us, so I am so glad we did it. My Sister came for a surprise visit on Sunday and is leaving this evening, so this is all going to be short and sweet! lol. I was able to get this card done in a hour, because I HAD to, lol.

Those Blue-Prints sure make it a lot faster and easier to make a card design, I highly recommend them. They are easy to mix and match around because you get so many different dies in each one. A real bargain when you consider how much you pay per die. I hope you will check them out!
You have one more day in our current Challenge over at the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog - Home Made Flowers. And Tomorrow is the first day in the month and a new Challenge will begin, hmmmm I wonder what it will be, lol. If you have been playing along in our challenges, you will already know :)
Thanks for checking in on us,

Thinking of You

Hello Friends and Stampers,

Happy Holly-Day Monday! It's my day to post over at the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog.  I know, I know, I have to go back to work too, lol. I sure did enjoy these past few days off though. Somewhere along the line, I had lost my mojo. I finally decided it was due to the fact that I had to make things with my elbows in due to the stacks and stacks of excess from prior projects, new stuff I wanted to keep out to use, and just plain stacking things up. So I cleared off my desk, dusted, and sat down to finally make something. Here is what I made.

Sometimes letting the ink pads color for you is the way to ease back into some mojo. I promise immediately afterwards, I started coloring with my Copic Markers again, lol.
I hope everyone has been over to the New Items page at the Loves Rubberstamps store! Laura has been a busy bee getting a new stamp line in and has added some others, so go check those out!!! Also, you don't want to miss out on the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge, Spots and dots, this is the last day to play! And there will be a new one tomorrow!!!
Thanks for looking and for your kind comments.

Love Story

Hello Friends and Stampers,
Happy Holly-Day Monday! It's my turn to post on the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog.  I hope your week is off to a good start. I know mine is. Yesterday was our 12th Anniversary and I whipped up this card for Joe in one evening after work on Saturday, lol. I love this set and the sentiments. It's true, our love story is my favorite.
I was 35 and a single parent of two teens in California. He was a single guy in Pennsylvania. We had one friend in common and before you know it, I was flying over there and he was flying over here and I was flying over there again.... to pack up the U-haul and move him across the country. You have to admit, he is a brave man, lol.
I hope you have had a chance to play in our Current Challenge - Clean and Simple. Our New challenge starts tomorrow and you do not want to miss that one either.... it's my challenge! You also want to pop on over to the New Items in the store and take a look at all the cute stamps Laura has just added.
Have a great week and I will see you again next week.

You're a Super Dad

Sugar Pea Designs - My Hero (preorder coming soon)
Penny Black Creative Dies - Downtown
Hey Friends and Stampers,

It's Happy Holly-Day Monday again, over at Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog, I'm here to show you a Father's Day card I whipped together for Joe. Life has been so busy these past couple months that I was concerned I was not going to get this card made for today, lol. It seems like it's always something lately. This last weekend was suppose to be a rest period for our household after undertaking so much lately. But sadly Mr. Reed got got sick....on the top bunk....all down the back wall..... and then over the other side. It's a big huge wood one that the furniture store sent guys over to build in the room.... Unfortunately we had a lot packed in that room too. So we hauled it all out, Joe got out the Dad tools and down came the bunk bed. We cleaned and cleared out and shampooed the carpets. And then it all went back in again, but we decided to stick with just the bottom bunk, lol. Knowing my dear Joe needed a boost, I decided to go ahead and give him his Father's Day gift a week early. So he got an XBox 1 and you would have thought it was another child the way he went on. lol.

One of the reason I love working for Loves Rubberstamps is the variety that I have to choose from. This cute little Super Hero is from Sugar Pea Designs that Laura is planning on adding to the others as soon as she gets caught up. If you would like to preorder him, shoot her an email at and she will add him to her orders for you. Same goes with the Penny Black Creative Die - Downtown. The first time I saw this die, I knew I had to have it! It's the perfect size for all my Super Hero images, lol. And the, You're Super set from MFT both stamps and dies can be used in combination with all kinds of images and other dies. These are all perfect for me to have on hand because ALL my guys are Geeks and all my guys love super hero's, along with all the movies that go along with them.

Oh and you want to be sure to get your projects uploaded in our Current Challenge - anything goes! There are triple prizes this week! One of which is a voucher to the Loves Rubberstamps Store, check out the New Items Laura has just put in. So cute!!!

Thanks for Checking in on me,

Hello Sunshine

SugarPea Designs - Hello Sunshine
BoBunny - Lemonade
Hello, Happy Holly-Day Monday,
It's my turn to show you some inspiration over at the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog.  I am using a newer SugarPea Design stamp and I love these cute images.  If you are wanting this one, Laura has set dates for preorders, just send her an email and let her know.   This little scene was a lot of fun to color up and I love the cute frog that comes with it. 
I blew some dust off my little heart banner and I don't know why, I love this die.  I cut it out twice, once in yellow and once in patterned red paper to fill in the hearts. 
I hope you have had a chance to play in our current challenge - add doodling, it is a lot of fun.   Also you will want to check out the tons and tons of New Items in the Loves Rubberstamps Store.  I totally went shopping! lol.  
I hope you have a fabulous week, it's so hard to believe it's already June and summer is here in full force.  School just let out and the kids are so excited to be out of school for the summer.  I do have to confess that we are doing a bit of a summer schooling project here at home to keep their skills and imagination going.  Nothing heavy duty, just some researching and writing about their findings.  Plus a few chapter books to keep them up on their reading.  I also have a couple field trips to the beach planned, lol. 
Thanks for Looking in on us.

Thanks for looking,
