some more handbags and a card!!!!

the card is from last weeks SC and the colors are my fave ever, kiwi kiss, baja breeze, ans Kraft.
I used kind thoughts a cuttle bug and Martha S butterfly punch!!!! I was not sure I liked it at first but the more I look at it the more I like!!!
I made another of the green handbags cause I liked it so much!!!! As I said before the pattern is Amy butler as is the fabric the second bag is not Amy but just a spendy and just as pretty!!!! I went with the ribbon closure (cause it is pretty) and on these two there is no felt flower!!!!

can you belive my baby is a year old!!!!!!

Thatcher is one year old today so I thought I would share some pics old and new.
we took him to walmart to pick out some toys and I think it would be fun every year so that he can have something separate from Christmas!!!!
it is pretty crazy the things they do over the course of a year he walks and claps his hands he plays peek-a-boo and what a giggle this kid has on him!!!!

stamping's in's and out's

I promise this will be my last card with good things grow for a while. Do you know that I do not have the square nesty dies I thought that they would be the ones I needed least ………. Looking back at the last three cards I really wish I had them now!!!!!
About the card.
I used PTI brown and the PTI sunrise yellow Baja breeze and some stampin up DP. The ink is so saffron and PTI’s brown the sentiment stamp is from a friend in the UK hi Jenny!!!! And the flowers are good things grow! PTI ribbon and the cuttle bug finish it all off
So I would like for you to tell me what you think of this weeks posts and if you think I should keep posting a week at a time or not !!!
I also wanted to tell every body that I am no longer with SU or H&M Stamps there was just to much in the past few month, I think after the first of the year I will try and pick SU back up and I am still with little paper shop!!!
I think I may also try to get myself some kind of trade I really want to go to school how dose photography sound sounds good to me. I would love to get paid to do something I love!!!!!!
Stamping will forever be in my top two fav things to do but a girl has to branch out!!!!! And don’t worry I am not leaving the world of stamping there is just to many wonderful people in this “HOBBY”

Ava was 4 on the 23rd of last month and we just had her birthday party a few days ago at Pizza Hut the bottom pic is Ava playing her new Drums (all I have to say about this is Erica and Deann better just wait till there kids birthdays)
Do you see the blue eyes in the top picture let me just tell you she really knows how to use them to get what she wants!!!!!! Why do us as mommy’s and daddy’s fall for that crap!!!???????
But any ways she had a blast and now she thinks we should do it again!!!!! She was bummed when I told her only once a year!!!

see my pretty hand bags!!!

I have been working on some Christmas gifts for my girlfriends, and sisters, and I am so overjoyed with how they turned out. Now the top one is one that I am going to keep, I got it all put together and then noticed that there was spot that the seem had missed. And, I just really like this bag!!!!
The pattern for this bag is an Amy Butler pattern. and the fabric on the 1st bag is also Amy Butler.
I made the flower out of felt, each of the petals were cut out with my oval nestty dies the I cut a triangle out of the bottom of each one to sew the dart in to give the flower shape. they are fastened to the bags with the SU! Pretties hat pins and beads !!!!
I know this is not what you come here to see, but it is hand made by me and I just love to share what I make!!!!!

good things grow in blue!!!

Here is my card for the day and a new post I am starting to like the idea of doing this all on a flash drive cause then I do not have to worry about being able to post every day!!!! Thank you blogger giving us the choice of when our blogs go out!!!!
This card also uses good thing grow (cause I love it) pacific blue WW and Baja Blue for the card stock and kiwi kiss ink!!! I used the simple silver cord from last Christmas and then ran the P-blue through the Cuttle Bug
I Bet you think this card took 5 minuets but NO it took two days of me staring at it and it just not coming together like I wanted!!!
Now the more I look at it the happier I am!!!!

Jasmine Smile

Here is my new fav pic of Jasmine. We were playing in the leave like we do every year, and she told Ava to hide her from me. the only thing you could see was her face. WOW she is so beautiful when she smiles!!!!!!!! Jasmine has kind of been a pouty butt for a while now, and when she shows off that radiant smile she shines!!!!!

This is the first card for me in a while but I just loved it! My ma gave me this set of stamps and I have not been able to put it away I love every image in the set. I also made Ava’s birthday invites with this set but am so sorry I did not get a picture!!! They were as simple as this card but I used my new nesty dies on them
Lets see what is this set called?
It is good thing grow and the colors I used are Tangerine Tango, Pacific Blue, and Baja Blue!!!! The card stock is the same color plus PTI’s heavy stampers select white for the base of the card!
The sentiment it from little Paper shop and the paper pokey (as Ava Call’s it) was the final touch to a very simple card!!!!!
Sarah :D
I wrote this a week or so ago and was unable to post it but I have the Internet back now and will bee back as daily as I can thank you for waiting around!!!!

Pics From Today!

my DH and I spent some time out side today And I found it to be the perfect time to take some pics!!!!!!!
The boys were asleep and Jasmine was hanging with her "girls" Ava is the only one who wanted to hang out so I now have about 500 photos of mostly Ava!!!!!
Ava was sitting in my Lap on the swing when Marty shot this I thought it was great in color but fab in B&W
And this picture was a bit tricky to get I had to sit under and behind them while there were on the swing but to me the color and the the shot were perfect
thank you so much for looking and I will be back tomorrow with a card!!!!!

A free card thanks mom!!!!!

I made this card while I was at my moms house last month and thought I would share it today! the stamp set is called Christmas wishes and it is from Little Paper Shop!
I call this my free card cause I got the stamps from Julia and every thing else was my Mommy's! I do not think she was to thrilled that I cut into her new ribbon or new DP but I did make it up to her by giving her this totally rockin stamp set that I wish I still had now! I am only making 30 Christmas cards this year and I like this one!!!
Thanks for Looking

H&M Stamps!!!!

goodness ladies...... it has been over two weeks since I have been able to find the time to post a blog!!!!! now I am putting three together all at the same time!!!!!! this post is all about H&M stamps all of the cards in this post use the wonderful images created by Heather and bev, and are available for you to buy at there web store!!!!!!
The first card I made for out DT leader for her birthday I just could not wait to use that stamp from a set caller Sweetly stamped

this card was made late last night but the Idea for it came to me right before I "WAS" going to go to bed but then had to go stamp and you know how that is when the stamps call to you you have to go to them or the good stuff just dose not stick around for later!!!!!! all of the stamps an this card come from one of Bev's sets called old fashioned hay ride this set has sooooooo many cute images it is have to not try to fit them all in some were!!!!
this has to be one off my all time fav sets from H&M Stamps!!! I love cookies all cookies I think they are the only thing keeping me from shedding my last 20lbs of unwanted baby wait!!! this set is sure to give you many different kinds of cookies on no extra wait!!!!!
and this fun little bag uses natures style and I think it was a cool way for me to get out of my moms house with some super yummy walnuts!!!!! (yes I took them from mom) but to cover up the fact that I was stealing her spendy nuts I embellished the bag with a really huge piece of her new ribbon!!!! she did get after me for that!!!!!! anyways I think I am going to call it a night and go to bed!!!!

good night and
