{ Not how I wanted to start the summer! }

What do you get when you add one 15 week old Beagle and a 1 1/2" piece of glass? A 2hr trip to the Animal Hospital, one tired puppy and mommy and a vet bill for $460!! Not the way I wanted to start the summer. :0( You don't really realize how much garbage is lying around until you have a puppy that eats EVERYTHING in site!!

{ Welcome Summer }

And what a welcome it has been. We have had a few thunderstorms and some real downpours!! Hopefully some nice warm weather will be in our near future though. I think today is suppose to be a nice one anyway and a good thing too. The girls have their end of year Pancake breakfast today at school. Although, they will be fighting off the mosquitoes!!

Here is the other project I promised...

Granted this is not just paper crafting. I did use ribbon and cardstock for the backing. I cross stitched it onto linen...not too sure how durable it will be. I probably should have used a vinyl but hey. I started to make one for myself...I should finish that up, so I can use it with all my summer reading!!

Off to work...only 3 more days of school and then no more early mornings for 2 whole months!! Woohoo!!

{ An old one... }

Surprise! Yup...I am still alive. ;0) Just thought I would do a quick pop-in to say hi. I don't know about the rest of you, but I am soooooo looking forward to summer!! This weather we have been having? It really sucks!! Where is the sun?? I am so sick of cloudy, windy, rainy days!! We had a nice weekend and then was gone again.

The kids only have one more week of school after tomorrow! No more early more more ballet...2 whole months of freedom...and hopefully between the girls and the dog I don't go insane!! ;0)

Here is an old one that I don't think I ever posted. This was a bday card for my good friend Dianne. She is a HUGH Pooh lover...check out her blog and see her stamproom and you will see what I mean. I also made her something else to go with this. I will see if I can find the pic later and post that was a first for me.

Hope you all have a great weekend. I am hoping to maybe get some stamp time in the next few days...gotta make a Fathers Day card or two and a bday card too...but we will see.

Thanks again to everyone for playing along. Now onto my announcement. I have come to a hard decision about this Challenge and my blog. Life is just really crazy right now and I have decided to take a bit of a blogging break and unfortuately that includes the Challenge. I have decided that May will be the last challenge for this year. If there is anyone out there wanting to continue on with the Challenge you are more than welcome to take it over. Just let me know and I will be sure to let everyone know here on my blog. Okay...onto our last winner...drumroll...

Again, thanks to everyone for playing along in the challenges and for visiting my blog. I am not giving up blogging completely, but I can guarantee that it will be very sporatic as I think I have only stamped maybe once a month over the past few months. Sad I know, but that is just the way it is right now.
Have a great weekend everyone!
