Holiday Home.


Greetings Friends,
The color combo over at the Paper Players was calling me to use the new Holiday Home stamps set.  What a nice combination of fall colors - though I did add some orange for the pumpkins.  Thanks for the inspiration design team.

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel.

Flower Patch.

Greetings Friends,
I am a little bit excited to have the morning off of babysitting.  I wasn't running around the house like my usual crazy self this morning so I had a little extra time to play in the craft room.  :)  Of course this meant the J & E over slept a touch - but a little extra sleep never hurt anyone right?

I had my Flower Patch stamp set out on my table from my cake topper project so I thought I would put it to use again for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel

Cake Topper.

Greetings Friends,
I think that Tom may have felt a little bad about my birthday present being a water heater this year so he came home with one of my favorite candy bars. Yummy!!!  He also volunteered to do some housework for me before my family came over for dinner.  Hooray!!!

Since Tom was finishing up the chores I had a little time before my family arrived for birthday dinner.  I ran down to the craft room and made a cake topper for my birthday cake.

It was the perfect pop of color for my cake.  My kids have already got their wheels spinning on what kind of toppers we can make for their cakes.  :)

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel

Holiday Home


Greetings Friends,
Oh my was it hard to crawl out of bed this morning.  We had a busy weekend so I am a bit tired - but the cool fall breeze drifting through the window paired with the cozy warm blankets made it tough not to snuggle deep down in bed for the day.
 
How perfect that the Paper Players had a fall themed challenge this week.  I paired it with the Mojo Monday sketch challenge and ta-da, a cute fall themed card.  It was fun inking up my new Holiday Home stamp set for these challenges.  Thanks for the inspiration design teams.
 

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel

Simply Sports



Greetings Friends,
Josh & Kim started soccer practices this week.  This is Joshua's 1st year and this is Kimberly's 3rd year playing.  They both really like their coaches and team mates .... oh, yes and their jersey colors.  Josh has orange and blue.  Kimberly had black and teal.  I'll post photo's of them soon.

The minute I saw the color challenge over at the Colour Q I thought of my Simply Sports stamp set.  Joshua helped me put this one together.  His wheels are already spinning on how to use this set for his birthday treats.

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel.
