New Release: "We Love Dad"

Once upon a time I met a boy. He was my biggest crush.

One happy day there was a wedding, it couldn't get better than this.

 But then it did.

Hope you enjoy this new release all inspired by two handsome guys.

Don't forget to check out the new deals added to the shop!

Inspired by Father's Day, I have a fun treat from my Design Team today! Some have included a little extra Father's Day message or memory.

"One of the things my dad did with all of us was play "hide" the thimble or simply hide and was the most fun..and so simple in this day and age. I can still hear us get excited when we found him behind the door. Or when we were "hot" or "cold" finding the thimble. My granddaughter's memory of my husband (her grandpa) will be his hugs..he gives real bear hugs (strong) and so if you give her a light hug, she will say, "no", i want a grandpa hug. LOL"

And Winner of Sami Stamps Challenge #012: Guest Designer Aunty Sue

"Hi I am Aunty Sue from Aunty Sue's Craft Cavern Blog, Mum to 1 Son and from The North West of England Uk. I retired in 2002 after a long illness and rekindled my love for Crafting. In my past I have dabbled with all sorts of Crafting from Dressmaking, Knitting, Cross Stitching to list a few. It all started when I joined Docrafts. I starting  first with Decoupage and later got hooked on Stamping. Now I use a lot of Digital images as it allows for resizing to whatever I am creating and enjoy the freedom it allows. 

I was encouraged to create a blog from where I was invited to join a challenge blog and now I am on 4 Design Teams, Crafty Sentiments, Divas By Design, Craft and am in charge of the GDT on Crafty Catz. I enjoy blog hopping and gain lots of inspiration from my fellow bloggers.

I was delighted win this GDT spot and  hope you like my card I have produced from the new collection. Maybe come over and say hi. I love making new friends through my craft. I would also like to thank Sami Stamps for this opportunity."

"The card is an 8x8" and I have done the image and cut out and placed on top as the 2nd picture shows. I will be giving this to my Dad although it has been a long time since he carried me or my brothers on his shoulders but it brings back good memories."

New Release: Fancy Hats!

I knew someone 
who saw the good 
in everything she met. 

The wind blown hair
the sand filled shoes 
her clothes all soaking wet. 

She smiled, and sang
and had a ball 
and loved the world around 

Embraced the breeze
brushed off her knees
nothing could get her down.

And so she saw
all of the good
in everything she met

Pushed out the gray
lived all her days
and tried not to forget

That, quickly, life
the only one
she had might soon be o'er

So skipping through
the dark and dim
she just asked life for more.

I hope you enjoy your day today.
New Release!

Happy Mother's Day

One day when my son was about 2 months old, my husband, my son, and I were walking through the park when we came to a long strip of the pathway blocked by the spray from sprinklers. We stopped, hesitated, then my husband turned to me. "You know you want to." Without further hesitation I charged through them pushing the stroller as fast as I could. It was so fun we even did another lap around the park so I could do it again. The second time through I was son was crying. I peeked under the cover of the stroller at him and he was all wet! Apparently there was a hole where the two covers for the stroller come together.

A New Freebee has been added to the shop for a limited time!

Challenge #013 and New Release: A Mother's Love

As a little girl I remember shyly shuffling my feet as the question was asked "Whats your name?" My response was "My mommy calls me precious."

Just the other day I said to my little boy "Hi sweet boy!" and his response; "No, precious. My Nana calls me precious."

My mom. Who else can make generations feel as if they are the most precious person in the world to her? There isn't anybody I look up to more.

Now as a mom myself, up to my elbows in little boy, I understand more than ever how special it is to hear those words "I Love You." ESPECIALLY unprompted. No matter your relationship, let your mom know you care this Mother's Day! And what better way to do so than to grab an image from this New Release! =)

Come by the Shop and check out our NEW FREEBEE and $2.00 DEAL!

And where would we be without a little Sami Stamps DT inspiration? I just love my Design Team!
