New cards




I just got back from a couple of days in Seattle for some well deserved and greatly appreciated R and R with just the hubby.

We spent Saturday just driving around and then walking around on the pier and having a wonderful dinner at Ivar's Seafood.

Then Sunday we got up and had breakfast and went to Pike Street Market, where we just looked around and had a great time, then we had a nice halibut sandwich for lunch and then went to the Mariner's Baseball game against the Minnisota Twins and we WON!!!!! Then we drove home and enjoyed the whole time.

Anyway these are a couple of cards that I had done before we left but I did not get them posted. Hope you like them.

Be sure to check back all this week cause I am creating like crazy and having a ball doing it.

My picture with the little duck is one that I did with a WinkWinkInk image. I am applying to be part of their Design Team. Wish me luck

Can it be????? Is summer almost over????




I cannot believe that it is the end of August, where in the heck did the summer go?

Hi everyone, this is Laralee and I am so excited to be posting today. I have been making cards like crazy.........I had a goal of making 1 WELCOME card for each of my grandchildren, that are in school, for their teachers. I DID IT!!!!! These are just a couple of examples of what I have done.

I used the the teacher stamp, and also a saying stamp that I got out of the store. The other saying of GOD grant me the serenity is a stamp that I have had for years. On the scarecrow boy, he is also a stamp out of the store and his saying of "The time has come" is #18407.

We have such great stamps in the store, be sure to stop by and order a few for the winter months. DID I JUST SAY WINTER?????? Slap my mouth for swearing.

I have been creating like crazy today.



I had kind of a stressful weekend. I thought when your kids grew up that the stress stopped...............WRONG.

Anyway I did an anniversary card that was requested by a friend, and then another friend just had her 2 yr anniversary of being cancer free so I made a card for her.

Hope you enjoy them.

SCHOOL IS STARTING OH NO!!!!!!!


Where in the world has the summer went. I cannot believe that there are place in the US that school has already started, but anyway our kids start next week and I cannot believe that it is that time of the year again.

I have 2 granchildren going into kindergarden this year, Micheala and Trezner. I remember when Trez was just a baby an rolling around on the ground, trying to follow the bigger kids.

Anyway I have been working on numerous cards for the past week, inbetween trying to catch up on sleep. This is just an adorable stamps from QKR Stampede, and yes I have used it a couple of timesm but you will see those later in the week.

She was colored with my copics and I used some old paper (yes I am still using up my stash). I do believe that it is from PC. Hope you enjoy the card and be sure to go to QKR Stampede and see what great stamps that they have.,

Well as you can see, my card is for a teacher. Man they just do not get enough praise for what they do.

Both the image and the saying are from QKR Stampede and I just love them. I colored them with my copics (of course) and the paper is part of my old stash that I am slowly but surely getting used up. I also used some metallics from EK to highlight some of the image.

OK now it is off to Ceal's blog to see what great things that she has instore for us.

I would appreciate it if you would spread the word about the blog hop to your crafty friends and be sure to leave each of us some LOVE so that you can have a chance at ther great prize that Maribeth is offering to ONE LUCKY blog hopper.

Have a great day and have a great time hopping around.

DT call for Michelle Perkett Studio's



MPS is having a DT call!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From now until the 15th of August. Here is the image that is FREE, and of course this is what I did with it.

I just did a blog hop with her this past weekend and had a blast. I think that she would be a blast to work with and what great images that she has. Just go to one of her many areas on SNR, CDAC, or PCP and post that you are interested and she will get to you.

New cards from me and my granddtr




Wow what a crazy week it has been here. My dtr in law had surgery so I have 5 of their 6 children (the last one is the baby and she is only 2 months old).

My granddtr, Cheyanne has been coloring with Grandma and she did the first 2 images and I am soooooooo proud of her.

2 of her brothers jusst had birthdays and she wanted to do a picture and card for them and I think she just did a great job.

The last image is the new challenge for Stamp n Doodle and the challenge is birthday cards and this is the FREE image. What a blast I had with this one as sooooo many of my friends are either hitting or getting ready to hit the BIG 50.

Hope you enjoy it and don't forget that we are getting ready for a blog hop at QKR Rubber Stampede and this month we are doing school days type hop. I cannot believe that it is almost time for kids to start back to school.

I have been workng on other cards, some for DT applications. What the heck I want to try anyway.

Have a great weekend.
