Sitting Mermaid Marci

La La Land Crafts has a new monthly product kit out and I just had to sign up. This month you got Sitting Mermaid Marci, accessory stamps and dies--very cool! and the price is really reasonable so if you love these stamps and dies--check it out HERE! You won't be able to get this kit but you can sign up to start with September's kit.

Here's my card using all these fun products! I LOVED coloring up Sitting Mermaid Marci and really am proud of how she turned out. It was also fun to add the extra die cuts with her.

Picked Sweet Summer Song

I'm having fun crafting this weekend, sure hoping I can keep it up during the week as it makes me happy!!

I noticed that lately I feel like all my cards are the same and that I have fallen into that same lazy rut so I'm trying to make more of an effort to get off my duff and USE what I have---dies, punches, embellishments, etc!! Hopefully that will help!

Today I colored up another new Whimsy Stamp, this time one by Elisabeth Bell called Picked Sweet Summer Song. I am in a happy mood and I think it shows by the bright, happy colors I used. I also used the awesome sentiment set, Everyday Moments by SC Designs for Whimsy.

Anyone still hanging around?

I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted! Wow!!  

Life is good, I've just been busy with getting use to Sam being gone, the kids going back to school and me working! Whew! I just finished a 9 day stretch at work and although I was tired, it really wasn't too bad.

I have to say I really am enjoying my job. I leave smiling and just as happy as when I arrive so I think that's a good sign!!

I'm hoping that this week I'll be more in the groove and not as tired so I can add crafting to my evenings. I miss it!!

I also wanted to share that I just re-signed up with Stampin' Up. I really am doing it for the discount for myself but of course, I'm not opposed to selling it to anyone either. :) It was my early birthday present and I can't wait to get the new In Colors (and of course some other fun goodies)!!!

My website is HERE!!
I also am still selling Jamberry and my site for that is HERE!

If you're still here, thanks for sticking around! I hope to have some crafty creations to share tonight or tomorrow!!

Have a super fabulous day!!

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

This card is going to a special little lady! When I order from SugarPea Designs I usually get a handwritten note on my packages saying Thank You by owner Wendy's daughter. So I thought it would be fun to send her a thank you for brightening my day!

I really had fun making this card--I say that often, don't I? But it's true. I just love creating-it makes my soul smile.




I used an old SugarSketch--actually it's the first one they put out back in March of this year but it worked great for this card!

Daydream Believer

Hello there! Hope this finds everyone doing fantastic!! I made it through my first 4 days of work at the zoo--yay! There is so much to learn but I think after another week or so I'll feel more comfortable. I am working in Guest Services and ticketing. 

I must say that every day that I go to work I pinch myself and squeal because I work at a zoo!! The #1 ranked zoo in the world as ranked by Trip Advisor! So awesome!!

With getting use to working at a different place (more hours than at the grocery store), getting the kids ready for back to school (they start Tuesday) and adjusting to Sam's new railroad job (he left today for Montana)--my crafting has been on the back burner but I finally got things taken care of and couldn't wait to craft today!!

I just got this fun Kraftin' Kimmie stamp set, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, and couldn't wait to get it inky!!



I don't know about you, but I love to sit and daydream! My daydreams are usually of my #1 thing on my bucket list, a trip to Africa. What do you daydream about??

I'm entering this card into the following challenges~


Have a super day and I hope to be back more often now! Thanks for stopping by!!
