Don't let me wait


♥♥♥♥♥

Today I have a card going to


and instead of a sketch, they have a photo inspiration ...


I love bright colors, but I don't use them very well ...

so here is my card, toned down a little ...


Hope you like it !

Last Sunday Dom and I took Spencer to our local home supply store, looking at plants.  As Spencer and I were walking on the outside walkway he said

You know, we forgot to eat lunch today.

and I said

Oh yes, we did.  Would you like a hotdog ?

and he said

Well, they have EXCELLENT vendors here ...
How about Burrito Amigos ?  They make a bean burrito that is
crisp and delicious.

I just love the way he talks, I could listen to him forever.

Right after he was potty trained, he had to have been 3, he was in the bathroom for a long time, and I asked him if he needed help.  And with a big sigh he said ...

I could use a volunteer ...

Have a fabulous weekend, a holiday for Americans !!

Not sure how a Pluto hat and Captain America jacket go together ...
But you know he would not be caught dead in anything 
LOKI !

Have a great weekend !!

Another gorgeous day here, sun and 72 degrees.  Wow.

Today my glass oven door blew.  Thank goodness I wasn't in the kitchen, as it sounded awful and blew glass all over my kitchen.  Yikes.  It wasn't even on, cannot imagine how a glass door can spontaneously combust.  Ok, well maybe it is because it never gets used.  

Anyway, here is my weekly contribution to the challenge at 



and here is my card ...


Hope you like it !!

Your dessert


♥♥♥♥♥

We sure didn't have much of a winter here in Oregon.  Especially compared to the rest of North America.  No snow, and only a couple days of cold weather.  Even the sun has been out more than it has ever been !  So our spring came in very softly, and I am now enjoying our tulips, and the blooms on our little cherry tree.

Today I am featuring a card for


still one of my favorite challenges after all this time


and my splattery card ...


I just haven't captured how cute this one is, the picture doesn't do it justice.

Oh well, it was made in love and that is what counts !!

The knights in armor



♥♥♥♥♥

Hi !

Here is another fav pic of my Spencer at WDW last month.


oops, one more ....


The other day we were talking and I used the word "decompose"
and he told me he didn't think that was a word.
I gave him an explanation and he said

I think the word you are looking for is "decay"

Well onto my card !!




Here is my card ...

WDW thanks


♥♥♥♥♥


Big thank you to the ladies at  Try Stampin' on Tuesday who counted this card in their top 3 !!

Today's card is going to my long suffering travel agent.  Natalie is a Disney expert, once a cast member she really knows all the ins and outs of Walt Disney World.  I would be glad to share her email address if anyone is heading in a Disney direction.

Poor girl, we had so many issues and problems, I am sure she was pretty sick of us by the end of our dream vacation !  She had rigged up a meeting for our Spencer with a chef at Boma restaurant.
I think that was one of the best things about our whole trip - Spencer said

Could this day GET ANY BETTER !!

Here are some pix of Spencer with, in my opinion, the very best character at WDW, Peter Pan.




This happened at a pirate cruise, where we ate all kinds of candy and goodies of all sorts, met Smee and Captain Hook, and then marched down to the dock where we took a "pirate cruise" with jokes and songs, then watched the fireworks over the castle, and came back to Peter Pan.  If you can ever do this, it was completely amazing and wonderful.

Anyway, on with my card !

This sketch is from



and my card ...


Hope you like it !!
