Miscellaneous Saturday.....

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!! My posting is going to be very sporadic over the next few days. I'll be gone most of the day tomorrow, then starting Monday I'm tackling my 9 yr old's bedroom. We moved into this house when he was 3, & he's had Bugs Bunny & friends staring at him from his walls this whole time. I decorated his room with that theme thinking he'd love it forever!! Who doesn't love Bugs? Well, apparently it's time to move on to something else. So, we have to finish moving everything out of his room, I have to prep the walls, tape the molding, fix his wall where he peeled his drywall, prime & paint, & on one wall I'm going try rag-rolling (I've never done this before so who knows how it will turn out!!) then put everything back.....I figure it will take at least a week!!! I'm pretty sure I will have very little time to stamp or post here.

I have a few things to share today. I took this picture a few days ago of a sunflower in my front garden. I didn't plant any sunflowers in my front garden. I did plant some in my back garden. However, there are NO sunflowers growing in my back garden :( Seems *someone* did a little rearranging of my seeds!! No matter, they're pretty wherever they pop up! (But the ones in my back garden were RED! I wanted RED sunflowers!!)


I also want to mention some blog candy offerings:

Donalda at Enjoying the Journey is celebrating her upcoming 10,000 hits with an adorable Tilda stamp.

Kimmie at Kraftin' Kimmie's Corner is giving away some Magnolia goodies if you participate in her challenge!

and Marlene at A Lil Bit Of Me is celebrating the end of school with a Hanglar stamp & a ton of Hanglar images.

Head on over to these blogs to enter!!! These ladies create some fabulous stuff so plan on staying a while!!

I also thought I'd post a card I did a few weeks ago which turned out to be one of my favorites. I absolutely ADORE Penny Black stamps & of course I ADORE cats, so I just had to get this stamp!!


I don't think this picture will enlarge when you click it because I took the picture even before I had this blog, before I learned about the different resolutions on my camera!! LOL!! But I just really like how this turned out. I stamped the image onto watercolor paper & colored it with my SU markers & blender pen. The kitty with the book is cut out & popped on dimensionals, the cup has Crystal Effects & I used my Sakura glitter pen on the steam. I believe this is the first card I used my Fiskars Threading Water punch on. I added lots of Stickles to the many Primas in the corner. Penny Black & Primas & Stickles........it all adds up to a fun card!!

Thanks for checking in, it may be a few days before I can post anything new. I'm thrilled that I've received more fun Magnolia images in the mail in the past couple of days so hopefully I'll find some time to play with those!!!!!
