Peachy Keen......PP301








Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum are delightful together in a very retro sort of way. I have visions of bobby sox, saddle shoes and pony tails......and maybe a few visions of sugarplums too......


Joanne has wonderful sketch for us this week at the Paper Players!  I used the peaches from the new Fresh Fruit set along with a sentiment from a retired set called Peachy Keen.

Wake Up Call! FMS242





The other morning I walked out on the porch and the big guy was backing the boat trailer into the yard between the garage and the swing set.  Now if Trailer Backing was an Olympic sport he would be a gold medalist. But I see him start to pull forward to adjust his line and he yells out the window at me:

Big Guy:   I am going to hit the swing set -  I need to pull forward.

Me:  Why?  You aren't even close to it.

BG:  If I keep going I will be!

Me:  Tons of room!

BG:  Are you sure?  Can you see it from where you are?

Me:  Of course I can - you are fine - back it in!

The next thing I hear is a crack followed by #$@%

So who knew that the tail lights on that trailer stick out past the sides?!?!?!?  Obviously he did........

I should have stayed inside like this little kitty and had a few more sips of caffeine!



I love Narelle's sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Hope you play along!



I am also linking my card up to the fabulous Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

Stamp Review Crew: Flower Shop











The Stamp Review crew is featuring the set Flower Shop today.  I took two of the floral designs and stamped them randomly on a sheet of paper in Versa mark and then embossed them in white.  I brushed Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Soft Sky and Daffodil Delight over the flowered sheet and then wiped off the excess ink.  I ended up with two totally different looking cards!  Then it was a matter of finding a sentiment to fit into an open space on the panel!  A few sequins for sparkle and I was done!










I am sure the rest of the Stamp Review Crew have some wonderful ideas to share with you using this set. You are right on track if you visited Martha Inchley before me!  Now head on over to Artisan Sue Plote's blog to see what wonderful things she has in store!
