Hello! Well, this is the third week in a row, that my posts have been so sporadic. I just can't seem to get it together. When I do get time to stamp, I feel like I am in a rush, which dosen't help the "mojo"! Nevertheless, I do have a card for you today! I know it is September and really I should be making cards with fall themes, but I found on my desk several stamps I had laid out a while back that I wanted to use for summer cards. So, give me a couple more weeks or at least through the next week to get my summer cards completed and I promise to give you some fall themed cards. The stamps I used today I have wanted to ink up forever. I have looked at the stamp before but thought ... oh my, a lot of coloring, and so it didn't get used. But today when I made the pact to get those summer cards completed, I knew I had to stamp this little chick and color away. Ready to see? Enjoy!
And the sun? It is a new die I got from My Favorite Things. I couldn't resist buying it thinking of all the stamps I have that say something about sunshine, including today's stamps. I guess it is good that I hadn't stamped these stamps before now, because the sun really adds to the whole feel of the card! I love how it turned out, don't you?

For fourteen years, I owned a rubber stamp store in Fort Worth, TX. I closed my store in June of 2009. And then another big change came. My husband, Gary, & I moved to the country, giving me much more time to do what I love: make cards and other papercrafting projects. In April of 2011, I began teaching a monthly card class at The Crafty Scrapper, a scrapbook store, which I also love. Welcome to my blog and thanks for coming along on this journey with me!
