Hang In There....FMS138

This little critter should bring a smile to someone having one of those days!  We had "one of those days" around here last week. Miss Emma was a bit grumpy but music and a bit of dancing usually cheer her up.  I put on a CD and she danced her way out of the kitchen, across the hall and into the living room.  I expected her to come dancing back as usual but she didn't return.  I could still hear those tapping feet so I peeked into the living room and this is what I found:

Well she did clear the table off first...........

A Paddling of Ducks....FMS137

This happy flotilla of ducklings has been sent to new parents to welcome their baby boy. I had to mail this card right out because every time I looked at it I had an irresistible urge to pick up one of the ducks and look underneath to see if I won a prize! 

Jen Mitchell has a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  It definitely made me get my ducks in a row!  The ducklings are from the new stamp set/framelit set Something for Baby and are stamped in Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist.

A Work of Art! PPA 204

That wonderful UPS guy left me a box of new SU goodies this week that included new stamp sets and samples of all of the new In Colors!  So I headed to my craft room and left this note for the other guy in my life: 

Hello Honey - I am upstairs sipping some Blackberry Bliss with a TangeloTwist enjoying the view of Lost Lagoon while creating a Work of Art!  Dinner's in the oven - start without me.........

Hope you join us at Pals Paper Arts this week!

Baby Games - FMS136

A friend of mine welcomed a grandson this week - the perfect time to break out the new SU set Something for Baby and some sweet Lullaby Designer Paper. My advice to the new grandma is to get those four generation pictures taken before he gets too wiggly!  We worked hard on Mother's Day to corral Miss Emma for a photo shoot but she was having none of it!  She was far more interested in playing on her new swing set than sitting still and smiling for the camera.........but at least she is smiling!

Par-tea on! FMS135

There's a Happy Birthday Mom greeting inside this card as my mother turns 89 today.  And what do you get someone who turns 89?  Anything she wants! Today is a pizza/cupcake party so that Emma can attend and enjoy.  Friday will be lunch out and a trip to the casino. Finally on Sunday there will be a barbecue at the lake.  I can only imagine what she will request next year for her 90th!

Looks like Emma and her Great Grandma are ready to get the parties started!

Easy Does It! PPA202, PP193

This card is headed to a sweet little guy who turns one this week.  Good thing his name is Ian because those funky letters make the perfect lion stand!  I have become such a fan of photopolymer sets - so easy to line up!  I stamped "Happy" from the See Ya Later set and then tucked in a small "birthday" from Countless Sayings 2 easy as can be!

I combined the colors at Pals Paper Arts with the sketch at The Paper Players this week to create my card!
