Last week was so busy for me that I am just getting around to posting my projects. When I found this adorable little schoolhouse at SVG CUTS I just knew I wanted to try it. It was so much fun to assemble.
I used our brand new School Day's for the sentiment. The bag is a wilton bag from Joann's and it has it's own drawstring. It was so easy to fill with some school candy.. old fashioned Mary Janes! I just LOVE this set!!
Hope you have a wonderful week...

We hope you will all join us for another Terrific Tuesday Challenge at Scrappy Mom's! This week we decided to make something from Straight from the nest!
Since I need SOOO many Birthday cards I decided to make this little ice cream cone. I used the Sweet Something's stamps for the sentiment. This is a super easy card and since time has been of the essence in our house it is exactly what I needed.
We hope you will all join us by entering your project using this cartridge or anything similar and posting it at Scrappy Mom's! You will be entered into our drawing for a free set of stamps!
Have a wonderful week!!!

Hello and Happy Tuesday!
Here is another quick card for you! I used my SILHOUETTE and got this adorable little card from the silhouette store. I am in LOVE with this machine. The sentiment is from our BRAND NEW School Day's set. I know I used one of these on my milk cartons but this saying is sooo perfect for a big chunky pencil! I have a thing for a nice, sharpened Dixon Ticonderoga Pencil too! I learned a little something on my trip to NY.. the Dixon, Ticonderoga pencil is not made in TICONDEROGA but it is made with graphite from Ticonderoga.. pretty exciting! I personally think they are the BEST!!
I also have a WINNER to announce!! I used Random.Org to choose the lucky winner. They will receive a set of our brand new School Day's stamps! And the winner is................

So sorry for being late in posting my second project! My family and I spent the day at the ball park and we had an absolute "BALL".. not to mention our team won! It can't get any better than that!
My next project is a little dog card I made with our brand new set Raining Cat's and Dogs! We had a lot of requests for a pet stamp set and so here it is! I was so happy I had a stamp appropriate to give my neighbors. Their sweet dog, Forest just passed away so I made this card to cheer them up! He was a German Shepard so of course I had to make a gray puppy. I was inspired by Ruthie, to create this card base using gypsy wanderings! I absolutely love it. The dog was created using four legged friends.
Thank you all for stopping by and hopping with us this weekend! We hope you will check back all week for more exciting projects!

Welcome to another Terrific Tuesday Challenge at Scrappy Mom's!! We chose to use the cartridge Pack your Bags this time around. Since all our kiddos are getting ready to go back to school and summer is almost over ( not the case in ARIZONA)...this cart was completely appropriate.
My little card is another shape card. I felt this was appropriate because we have had a hectic time in our family these past few weeks! We could all "RELAX" a little. Our little special needs daughter, Hannah, had a little health scare and we spent a day at the children's hospital along with MANY doctor's appointments. THANK GOD she is okay and she will need to have surgery next month to fix her little tummy. We thank GOD every day we have with her♥
I used the Sun Kissed set on this coconut mai-tai drink.. I think that is what it is? I don't really know for sure. I do know that whatever it is it is probably pretty tasty!!
I apologize for being MIA and I LOVE LOVED all your comments about the little backpack. You surely made my day!
We hope you will all join us in this challenge and if you don't have Pack your Bags anything summery will do.
