 Don't you just see the neighbor sitting in the sun in Florida with his puppy by his side sippin a ice tea and soakin up the rays?  I love this stamp set is Art Impressions and I am always getting request for handmade post cards or greeting cards for RVing or camping so this stamp set is perfect.
This next one is just cardstock layered with fishing stickers attached because I have a huge fan base of fishermen and the wives love to give their men cards.

While I'm on the road I make cards, sell cards for $1 each and I give haircuts to men & women for a donation.  That way I have a little stash to buy me something great someday.  I'm also know to give my cards away as Thank you packs just because someone did something special for me or touch me with their smile.  I'm a big supporter of the 'Pay it Forward' concept and I hope each and everyone of you will try it, the happiness it brings me is priceless.

Have a great day and remember to SMILE at someone, they'll like it and it will start to fill your heart with so much.    God Bless

Butterfly's & Thank You's

     Ok so its almost 5 months later and I haven't posted, gee willacures!  Thats a long time and I really have no excuse except Florida Internet is horrible.  But I came back on April 3rd, stayed home for a few days then went to Pigeon Forge for my annual birthday camp.  I actually went for the Stamp Escape that was put on for the STAMPERS who complain no stamp shows come our way.  Well in the 3 days I attended I didn't meet a single one Tennessee Stamper.  I'm proud of the fact that I am a TS even though I don't partake with the group I still think there are a lot of wonderful girls in the group.   I think Tom and Janet with the Scrapbooking Store did a wonderful job and deserve a lot of credit for the classes that were put on and the Make & Take event on Friday night.   I had a great time and learned or refresh this old brain with lots of good stuff and I got a Goody Bag that was worth $50.  I really am upset that more of the TS didn't show up, hey guess you know it all an didn't want to support Stampers in Tennessee.

     Enough said on that issue the card posted was one of at least 20 I made either in classes or at the Make & Take.  So without further ado here's a few more.
 I went to a class and made 3 adorable slider cards and its totally different than when I learned it years ago.  You can buy cards already made for sliders or you can buy the die-cut.  Amazing until I just read the verse inside that doesn't match the Happy Birthday card, Oops!
Everyone knows Janet from the Scrapbook store and one of our own TS, but she shared this card on the Make & Take night and I just love it.  I even bought the 2 stamps and stamp pad to make these.  Thanks Janet for planning a great time for all.  Now I promise to be better at getting back with you all and posting regularly since I am making cards again for OWH and Nursing Home.

     Everyone have a safe day and a warm one this one is just a little to chilly for me but God willin and the creek don't dry, I'll be fine.    God Bless.
