Summertime Pleasures

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I have 13 more wake-ups until school is done for the year, can you tell I'm excited about it. We are really busy with end of the year stuff so the days fly by but are very tiring.

I went to a stamping convention this weekend with my good friends and sister. We had lots of fun (I spent lots of money and got lots of great stamping stuff to play with). Anyone who knows me knows I love Rubber Stamp Tapestry peg stamps. They were there with lots of wonderful new templates and stamps. I love the dress template and am going to try to create one this week and will post it here when I do.

This week we also have a really fun challenge over at

Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.

The theme is Happy Birthday. Who doesn't need a stash of B'Day cards so be sure to play along. This week we have a wonderful sponsor Heart Song Designs

One lucky person will get a GC to there store. They were also wonderful enough to give all us ladies an image to inspire you with this week. I just love this bird on the branch. So what are you waiting for come play with us!
