Welcome, Friends

If any of you know me at all, you know that I have a sassy streak in me. We live in a new subdivision that is swarming with solicitors trying to sell me cleaners, pest control, alarm name it.

To keep them off my doorstep, I had a small, plain laminated sign that said "No Solicitors." And then I was overcome with a sassy urge yesterday and here's what I created. I used the Pocket Full of Posies stamp set and zapfino font (to make it look more elegant than rude). I'm convinced every woman needs one on her door! Ahaha.

Thank You Cards

I've had to make lots of Thank You cards recently. Since I won't be able to attend my baby sister's baby shower, I made her a stack of thank you cards for all the gifts she'll receive.

The first card looks awesome using Regal Rose, Bashful Blue, or even Gable Green. I just used white craft and a white gel pen. So simple, but still such a beautiful thank you card.

If you want the recipes, leave a comment.

Mudder's Day

Sorry I am a little late posting this fun Mother's Day card. I'm just sending mine off today!

If I had to do it over again, I would not have put the top row of white cows on the background. Or maybe do the background images in Versamark and stamp one white cow to stand out. (I used the "m" for "mudder" from the "Bug Me Anytime" stamp in the same set). Let me know how yours turns out!

Stamp Set: Very Punny (I used the "m" for mudder

Inks: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White craft
