Skunk Birthday with Doodle Pantry

Hello all and Happy Thursday.  Today I'm sharing a card featuring Doodle Pantry's Skunk from the Silly Critters set:
I often wonder what people think when I use skunk or pig images.  I happen to think they are super cute.  I in no way try to call people stinky or piggy.  Do you avoid certain images?  Anyway, this is similar to an earlier card, but I've been having fun with my new dies!  So thanks so much for visiting today and have a wonderful Thursday.  This meets the following challenges: The Crafter's Cafe: Punches/Dies, Divas by Design: Happy Birthday, Paper Pretties: Birthdays, and Simon Says: Anything Goes.

Piggy Halloween with From the Heart

Hello all and Happy Tuesday!  Today I'm sharing my first Halloween card using the From the Heart Stamp of the Month.
This little pig is the cutest.  I've never been a big Halloween person, but Beanie makes me want to celebrate, decorate, and make cards!  She LOVES Halloween.  So thanks Faith (at FTH) for the perfect stamp this month!

Baby Blog Hop with Catch the Bug

Hello all and Happy Saturday!  Thanks so much for stopping by today as it is a special day.  We are celebrating our Bugaboo Design Team Member Min!  Min and her DH are expecting a little bundle of joy, very soon, and hopefully this surprise blog hop will put a smile on their faces!  If you came from Laurie's blog, you are on the right path.  If you just came to visit little ol' me, I hope you will hop with us from the Beginning!
I'm featuring Baby Cow Moon on my CAS card - on it's way to you Min!  Here's the fun part: share a piece of wisdom!
  • I have learned, having two little girls, that I cannot shape them into what I want them to be, I can only guide them to be polite, kind, caring, and loving.  Other than that, they have their own personalities (some are stronger than others), and I have to accept who they are, love them for who they are, and pray that God will protect them and watch over them when I cannot.
So, congratulations, and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your baby girl.  They grow up so fast, so don't ever miss an opportunity to cuddle, listen, teach, and learn.  The laundry and dishes will eventually get washed.  Let your smile be her number one memory, not your backside as you clean your house.

Oops, that was two pieces of advice.  So, if you are hopping, your next stop is Mari!

Big Truck Birthday with Doodle Pantry

Hello and Welcome to August!  Time is flying by!  Today I want to share a Doodle Pantry New Release - Big Trucks:
Yes, non traditional indeed.  It wasn't my intent.  I really was going for masculine...but failed.  But hey, there are plenty of female truck drivers out there right?  Right?!  Anyway, also want to remind you that the new challenge is also starting at the Doodle Pantry Blog.  Short and sweet today.  Thanks for stopping by.  I sure do appreciate your visit!
