Happy May 2018

May is finally here, summer is just hiding on the horizon!  In several months, it will be miserably hot here, but for now I can enjoy all the wonderful cool nights and sunny days with pleasant temperatures.

May is National Bike Month, so it is great weather to enjoy bike riding.  The card this month celebrates May and bicycles and my little black cat (see her in the back of the bicycle basket?).

March 2018

Happy Caffeine Awareness Month!  For me it is always imperative that I start my day with caffeine, and it really is best for my family and co-workers if I do.  When I saw the Taylored Expressions combo dies and stamps, I fell in love the die looks just like my coffee maker at home!  Happy International Women's Day, Saint Patrick's Day, and Daylight Savings - basically Happy March!

Two February Cards

I created two cards for the month of February: one celebrating Valentines Day and the other celebrating chopsticks.  The Valentine's Day card is a scratch off puny joke one, so easy to do with Inky Antics scratch off stickers and stamps.

Stamps & Die:  Lawn Fawn (let's roll)
Paper:  Krazy Kreations (Birthday Anya II Paper Pack)

Stamps: Inky Antics (Valentine Riddles #2)
Paper:  Echo Park (Head over Heels)

National Compliment Day

You are Fabulous!  I decided to create a card for National Compliment Day, since I feel that I do not give enough compliments (even when I think them, I do not share them enough).

I love using the action wobblers, and even though you cannot tell in the photo, the little yoga girl wobbles with the excitement of giving a compliment.

Stamps: Simon Says Stamp (Workout)

Happy New Year 2018

I wish everyone a very Happy New Year!  After 2017, between riding out Hurricane Irma in Florida and the fires in California (and everything else during the year), my resolution is to stress less about things I cannot change or control.  

So my first holiday in 2018 is Bubble Bath Day, because it is hard to stress with a glorious tub full of bubbles.  Relax and have a great start to the new year!

Paper kit:  Krazy Kreations
Stamps: Magnolia (Bathtub), Amy R Stamps ( Magical Wishes)
