Positively Pampered

Hello there!  Hope you are all enjoying your week!  It's time for another Lili's Little Fairies Challenge, and this week it is "Anything but a Square".  Oh man, I was like, "Whhhhaaaaat?!!!!  NOT a square?!!!  But, but, but .. I only DO squares!"  (You know .. my creative level is still kept in a box .. a square one to be precise).  hahahahah!  No but yea .. seriously, I kinda panicked for a short bit and then I remembered, "Ohhh!  Do the door/wall hanging thing!"  Phew .. breathe in, breathe out .. relax!  LOL!

So here's another clear door/wall hanging that is non-square .. hehe!

Thinking Of You ...

Hi there!  Hope you are all doing well!  Summer is fast approaching .. gosh I can't believe how quick time flies.  My little one will be out of Kingergarten in a couple of weeks .. I have my Kleenex ready.  lol!  I am SO sad that he'll be done with Kindergarten .. it's like he's officially all grown up or something.  Wish he could stay little for a LOT longer.  I keep asking him, "Even when you're 16 years old, will you still cuddle with Mom?"  He said, "Of course Mommy!!!!" .. like I'm asking him such a silly question.  hehe.

But the great thing about the end of the school year means I can HOG my little boy all to myself!!!!!  Well .. okay .. I'll share him with my hubby for a little bit here and there .. but overall .. I get to HOG him!!!  haha!!  :)

Anyways, it's time for my 3rd post at Lili of the Valley Inspiration Blog and this is what I've done.  I haven't done one of these for a long time .. I guess you could call it a card doorhanger?  Hang it wherever you like actually.  :)


I've done this on clear plastic, so I just replicate whatever is on the front, onto the back to hide any glue that would be showing.  :)

Sweet Summer Days

Hey there!  Hope you are all doing very well ... and is it HOT where you're at?!  Cause sheeesh, it's getting up to almost 100's here!  Yuck!

Well, it's time for another Lili's Little Fairies Challenge .. this week it is "Bear Essentials".  How sweet is that?!!!  Something about little teddy bears makes you feel all warm inside doesn't it?

Here's my card:

Stamp:  Daisy Chain
Papers:  K&Company, DCWV
Medium:  Distress Inks

I'd love to enter this into:
Wild Orchid Challenge:  Anything Goes

I hope you'll stop by Lili's Little Fairies to join us .. we'd love to see you there!  One lucky person will win the Lili of the Valley Sentiment Tags!  And please go and check out my gorgeous DT sisters works too .. they are AMAZING!!!

One more thing ... the other day Max and I were out in the backyard.  I was busy taking pictures of the rose bushes and he was enjoying the coolness of the grass and shade.  It was time to go back in the house and when I called him, this is how he lay .. completely FLAT & STILL as a stickbug with his eyes peeking just above the tips of the grass between all that hair.  He did not move a single millimeter .. just still as can be.  LOL!  It's like even his tail froze in mid-wag!  hahaha!!!

I assume he wanted me to think he blended in with the grass and would go off somewhere else looking for him.  lol!  I wanted to tell him, "Dude!  I hate to break it to you ... but you're a totally different color than the grass!  I see you!"  hahahah!  Can you tell where his eyes are?  hehehe!  :)



Alright, thank you SO much for visiting me .. I appreciate your kind comments that you take the time to leave!  I'll see you again soon!

Hugs,
Elise

Friendship Is ...

Hello there!  It's time for another new Lili's Little Fairies Challenge .. another fun and easy challenge .. "Use Your Favorite Craft Tool"!  Is it your Martha Stewart Punch for the leaves or borders?  Is it your die cutting machine?  Maybe a simple thing like your paper trimmer that you just can't do without?  Or ... it could be like me .. a sewing machine which rarely ever touches a piece of clothing but ALWAYS needs to be used for my crafting!  LOL!
