El Paso Zoo again today--I love how the sun makes her seem "shiny". :)  And your zoo nerd (yes, that is what I am calling myself these days) is that no two zebras are alike. Their stripes are sort of their fingerprints.

Pinkie Little's Butterfly Net

My Annabelle stayed home sick with a bad cold today so I had a chance to do a little crafting. Luckily she seems to be doing better, just in time for her birthday tomorrow! I can't believe she's going to be 10!! 

I couldn't wait to ink up the newly released Pinkie Little's Butterfly Net by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps! I also am really trying to take my time with my cards and have a new "formula" I'm trying to follow so that I am using my supplies. 

My new "formula" is to have an image, a sentiment and to use at least one punch or die. Hopefully I can stick with it because I like how it challenges me to think outside my normal card routine.

I also used Whimsy's Frame of Thanks sentiments by SC Designs and the Mini Picture Frame Die, also by SC Designs.


You might want to watch for flying pigs too as I used an older Fiskars border punch on this card that hasn't seen daylight in years and also one of my distress inks and flowers that have been buried in drawers!! Go me!

I decided to try out the InLinkz project manager and must say I've been pleased with how easy it is to use. I *may* have been a bit giddy when I discovered that my favorite butterfly punch is not discontinued like I thought it was! I almost feel I should buy a spare so I have one if mine ever breaks. Yes, true hoarder here!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges~
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

You make me smile

Yay! A card!! I made myself just start a card to get the mojo flowing. Hopefully it's here to stay now!

This digi is from Emerald Fairies Digital Designs and is named Jewel. I really adore these fairies and should use the ones I have more often but we've already discussed that yesterday! LOL!

Question for you?? I've seen several bloggers using InLinkz to link their supply list at the end of posts--it shows a thumbnail and gives a link. I've thought about trying it for a while but haven't been able to decide. Do you prefer that or just a list of supplies or does it matter?? Just thinking...again...LOL!

Thanks for stopping by--I really do appreciate it!

If all else fails, add pink, sparkle and a butterfly!

edited to add/test the InLinkz product manager--

Too much buying, too much thinking, not enough stamping

I have been on a real buying spree lately. LOL! So many cute, cute stamps out there and so many fun supplies from SU that I couldn't resist. Now I just need to find the mojo to USE what I've bought.

Which has me thinking way too much and looking through my stamps and seeing how many have not been inked up or how many I still just adore but haven't used in a long time. 

What is it about me and wanting to have the latest cutest stamps? I really need to change my focus from my Veruca attitude to a use it attitude.

I thought about trying to challenge myself to use them or get a group together and challenge each other but I also know my follow through probably isn't there so I think that idea is out the window.

I guess I'm just rambling. Does anyone else just feel they are chasing their tails when it comes to buying vs using your supplies?? I hope I'm not the only one. 

Off to try and find that mojo.....and I'll leave you with this for the day~

Photo of the Day 9/24/2014

Today's photo is from the Northwest Trek in Washington. This is one of my favorite photos! I just love how Belle and the beaver became friends. It followed her around for quite some time and would touch wherever she touched.

Today I have a photo for you from the Point Defiance Zoo in Washington!

Doesn't he (or she) just look like she is a wise soul? Like you could just sit down and have a meaningful conversation?
