To brighten your day!

I thought I might share a fun, bright, and wonderful card with you this morning. It's that kind of card that makes me wish for spring, like right now dang-nabbit! It snowed here last night, and I know we need the moisture, but frankly I am sick of the cold. I have a million things to do today, and it all starts with a trip to court. Nope not me, I didn't do anything, I have been selected to just maybe fill a prospective seat as a juror! I am listed in four different jury pools right now, (city court, justice court, district court, and U.S. District court) and that usually happens to me every 2 years or so. This must be my year! Don't get me wrong, I don't usually mind to serve, but today is not the day I really wanted to miss in class.

So to brighten my day, and put on a happy face, there is nothing better to cheer me up than a Bella! Hope your week is great, and you have a wonderful monday to begin it all.

Miss. Kitty doesn't need a Cowboy in her Corral!

Okay now I am showing my age, and the shows my parents made me watch when I was younger! (If you understand my title)

I just couldn't resist making another card with my stamps from The Cat's Pajamas.

Another Cowboy in the House!

Did I tell you how much I love these images from "The Cat's Pajamas", oh that's right I haven't shut up about them. Well just to feed my hunger for them even more, here is another card to share. Isn't he a cutie, and that sentiment, so adorable!

Giddy Up!

I made this Bella card the other day, and thought I would share it with you. I changed Bella's steed to a Paint Horse, only because my sister has a horse like this named "Chocise". Just something a little fun and different. The sentiment is by The Cats Pajamas. Background is Stampin' Up "Pretty Paisley" Thanks for visiting my blog!

Todays the Day.....

I am finally doing something I have wanted to do for quite awhile..........I am signing up to be a Stampin' Up Demo. I have been a fan of SU since 1994, when I attended my first party. Since then I have been in the same 10's club with the same demo. My demo Anne was also my son's kindergarten teacher, so we have a wonderful history. I had always told Anne that I wouldn't sign-up until she was ready to give it up, but seeing as she loves the product as much as me, I finally decided that it was time. I am not sure if I am going to hit it full force, right now I am only interested in the discount, but I am sure a few clients will fall into my lap. I have been busy trying to figure out what sets I want to fill my kit, and that's super hard. I am glad I have a majority of the new catty for demo's if I need them, but to decide what else I might need is hard.

I made sure I did something special for my last 10's club meeting, I am after all the last original member. Anne might have an easier time trying to come up with her ideas, she always says that she has to find new styles, and techniques that I haven't seen. For my exchange I made matchbooks, inside are Ghirardelli Chocolates and the outside is decorated with an easter basket full of eggs. The image is from Stampin' Up set "Flower Filled". Hope you all have a wonderful day, I know mine will be exciting!

Our 'Lil Cowpoke

Do you ever buy something, and then never use them. I know we all have several sets or stamps in our room, that has never been inked. Well I cannot say that about the sets I bought from "The Cat's Pajamas", I am using them all the time. They really fit my personality and lifestyle quite well. I would have loved to use this image and the sentiment for my son's birth announcements, you know hindsights, blah, blah, blah!

These patterned papers are both by "Flair Designs", and I love them just for the simple fact they go well with these images. So here is a shout out to paper makers, "MAKE MORE WESTERN/COWBOY PAPERS!!" The sentiment is a sticker, and I can't for the life of me remember who it's by. Thanks for visiting my blog, y'all come back now, ya hear!

It's all about the love baby!!

So about a month ago I won some fabulous blog candy from Verve Visual, and Julee sent me this wonderful set, and last night I got to ink it! Just the thing I needed for my hubby's Valentine.

Here are 2 of the cards I made using my new set called "Heart to Heart". Be sure to check out Verve Visual blog and Julee's blog they are both amazing! Thanks Julee!

Needed a Girly Thing!

And what better way to add a little girl style to my blog than to post a BELLA!

There was no rhyme or reason for this card, except to ink something, and use up some scraps.

I needed a bright and beautiful card, so here she is! Enjoy!

The Littlest Cowboy Rides Again!

Ok, I know........... more cowboy cards on my blog!

I am telling you, I can't seem to stay away from these little guys from The Cat's Pajamas.

And that is not a bad thing.

I am hoping that there might be a cowgirl set to match in the future.

And the reason behind my post is a kind of two-fold.

This card is also my entry into The Stamp Shack "Survivor Contest".

I am hoping my card survives to the end, but I am happy just to play along this year.

The title is also a song by Chris LeDoux, one of my favorite of all times, and still so sadly missed.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
