Happy Birthday, Isaiah!

 
Happy Birthday, Isaiah!
If you've followed my blog for long you know I like never do Punch Art, however, this little guy tugged at my heart - isn't he cute?

 
I found him on Pinterest but the link was broken, so I'm unable to give credit where credit is due. If this little bird belongs to you, please let me know, and I'll link him back to you. Meanwhile, thank you for letting us enjoy him. He's in good hands as Isaiah loves birds and can tell you amazing facts about them.
 
And here's the birthday boy, Isaiah, who is very excited to be seven years old. He has such an amazing, quirky sense of humor (a clone of his Papa Ed) and we love him to the moon!

Awesomeness!


 

 Awesomeness!
 
That's what the Flower Patch stamp set is. Plain awesomeness! Purchasing it as a bundle gives you the ease of Framelits for quickly cutting out your flowers. L.O.V.E.
 
 
In Pool Party, Old Olive and Tangerine Tango - it's a hit!
When stamping with Photopolymer stamps it's often helpful to stamp on a softer surface. I happen to use the Stampin' Pierce Mat 126199. It has just the right degree of give to help your images stamp nice and clear. A mousepad works too!
 

 
 
 
            Oh, yes you do! This card is dedicated to  my amazing friend, Janet.

A Chalkboard Thank You

 
A perfect "beginning school  year" thank you (without the red apples!) Now, I'm not a school teacher, but I've often wondered, "Do they begin to cringe as year after year the red apple mugs, etc. begin to pile up?" How many can they use?
 
So, this year, how about a beginning of the year thank you along with a gift of classroom supplies you know they will need? Tissues, hand sanitizer, markers ... they may have a list ready to go that you can choose from. And how nice to begin the year with a thank you that let's them know they have your support!

 
A chalk board card comes together easily with a few simple supplies:

Gee, thanks

 
Woo-hoo! I love this Just Sayin' stamp set. It's quick and easy and works for so many occasions. This time for a thank you note that was way...... over due!
 
A smattering of Gorgeous Grunge (another favorite!) for a great backdrop. Tempting Turquoise and Calypso Coral add pop this time around.
And let's not forget the envelope - dress it up a bit so the fun begins before you open it up.

Thanks ..... so much!

 
Kindness
it's an amazing attribute that makes this old world go around so splendidly. There are so many kindnesses being shown every day, in so many ways, little and big. Being thankful for those gives your day a lift and opens your eyes to all the ways people are quietly giving. So time to make some thank you notes!
 
 
 
Well, Stampin' Up! has the perfect stamp for you. Flower Bunch comes all on it's own or as a bundle (why would you purchase it any other way?) with amazing Framelits so your flowers and leaves just pop out perfectly. Love. It.

 
A sweet little thanks from Another Thank You and topped off with a couple of pearls.
 
 
Do you have someone that just overwhelms you with their awesomeness? I hope so! I certainly do. My amazing friend who sent my husband and I off on our week to the coast with a great beach blanket, beach table and an incredible cooler bag full of delectable treats and drinks. We seriously ate out of it for three days!  So this card is for you, Michelle. You are nothing short than over-the- top amazing!

A Tribute to My Sweet Mom

 
In all the world we shall not find
a heart so loving and so kind,
so soft a voice, so sweet a smile,
an inspiration so worthwhile,
a sympathy so sure, so deep,
a love so wonderful to keep.
 
It's been a while since I've posted here and, as most of you would be aware, I have spent the last eleven months with my Mom as she journeyed along with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) I can't say she battled it, because she so sweetly resigned herself to the diagnosis last October, but she did live each day to the fullest and we are so proud of her.
 
She peacefully passed away July 18th and she will be forever missed and in our hearts.
 
So, life has taken another turn and, as promised, I'm back to blogging!!
 
Thank you to each one of you for your understanding and patience.... it means the world to me.
I don't have a card made to show you yet, (what!!!) but wanted to let you know that it's right around the corner.
 
In the meantime.... here's an offer that's too good to pass up!
