I was inspired by her invitation card that was both simple & elegant. Here is the link to her card: Baroque Motifs Invitation

My card is not nearly as elegant, but it is simple. This pink & orange thing is growing on me. It's fun for summer!

What color should I paint my front door?
Another Color
pollcode.com free polls

Sorry this isn't a stamping post. I'm just very undecided about what color I should paint my door. So, I thought what better way to get everyone's opinion than to do a poll, right??!

I like the red, it is my accent color. But the green matches the trim on all of the windows. OR should I do a different color altogether?

Help me!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there! I hope you had a great day!

Here's a card I made for my mom. I used some new MM's paper and the boho blossoms punch for the little flower. no stamping here, just used my own handwriting. I don't have a mother's day stamp.

Yes, I'm still alive.

I'm just posting quick this afternoon. Sorry it's been a while. We've been busy around our little 4 1/2 acres. It's amazing the work that is involved when spring comes. After being cooped up all winter, we can finally go outside and do some work, then I'm beat by 7:00! We now have 130 chickens and that has kept us busy along with (my) plans for some landscaping around the house and garden shed. I put my in parentheses because my husband does not know about this yet :) LOL! He loves it when I get crazy ideas.
So after working outside most of the day (when we actually have a nice day) I have tons and tons of blogs to catch up on. I think I had 130 unread blog entries in my Reader one day. Geesh...that took about a day to go through that!
Anyhow...I needed to get some thank you's made this week and here's one of them. It's a pretty simple card.
Stamps: Lovely Labels, Polka dot background
Paper: Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Charbon DP
Accessories: Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon
Tools: Scallop circle punch, 1 3/8", 1 1/4" circle, sm corner rounder.

That's it for today! You can go over to my family blog to see what we've been up to if you really need to know :)
