Thank you with a little help from Lawn Fawn... and the dogs go to the beach

I recently took the boys to the beach... They had such a wonderful time.  Ezra came too but she wasn't all that fond of the beach.  You can see her on the Video--- standing like a bump on a log.  (See at the bottom of the post)

Lunch at Park Bench Cafe!!!!  Lean Turkey Meat.... (eyed by Colt)

A very simple card... and a few photos from Comic-Con...

Using Lawn Fawn Stamps, I made this simple card.  Note, the dog is from a Penny Black valentine set (the dog was in a paper airplane) and the Sentiment was from a Parisienne themed clear stamp set!



Another year of Comic-Con has passed. Here are a few of my photos... more in the coming days...

The new Lawn Fawn release has some great new sets.  I'm super excited to get my hands on one of them (Critters in Costume).    I made this 'coupon' for my friend for her birthday for a Lawn Fawn set!

Sweep those dust bunnies away...

I made this card for someone who helped me sweep the dust bunnies out of my garage.  The images are from Paper Smooches!!!

I have so many of these bunnies!!! :)

And now I have a quail.... I'm hoping I can keep her.  (I think I'm allergic to her)....

Her name is Botwin... after the characters on Weeds.

A new home....

This house set came from Penny Black.  My aunt moved from the house that my uncle built in the early 60's to a home up north (in Northern California).   I imagine it must have been very hard.  At least she will be living near her daughter.

Here's some images from the back yard porch (CLICK HERE)

Happy 4th of July!!!!

I had bought the "Ciara" stamp through Stampers' Best to participate in the June tutorial.  I didn't participate however, I had the best intentions....

Here is my card based on that tutorial which basically focuses on paper piecing.  I used the Lawn Fawn Blue Skies to make the stars (and Sakura clear glitter pen around the edges of the stars).  The paper is from Doodlebug!!! Oh My Stars. Love that paper. (I'm afraid to use it).

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and the background stamp is from Stampers' Best (for Operation Write Home).


My friend is SOOO crafty with everything she does--- Look at this cute stage she set up for her little girls.
SO Sweet!!!!!  :)

Happy 4th of July, everyone!!!

And here are the boys and Ezra. True to form, Ezra won't look at the camera!
