Summertime Christmas


Hello....I was asked some time back by Katie from Paperless Post to make a couple of summer theme'd Christmas cards. I love penguins and thought that these sweet little guys would be fabulous doubling with summer and Christmas. And if you have penguins you need palm trees too and on my second card I added a wee bit of wink of stella for sparkle for a festive spin. Be sure to head over to Paperless Post and peek at there beautiful Christmas cards...so much beautiful inspiration! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your day!

Happy Tuesday....today is my last day off, school starts on Wednesday. I am looking forward to a fun filled year with a classroom full of new students ready to learn.  As you can see I have my computer back, it has been almost a month without one, felt like a lifetime to be honest with you. I know there is no way I can go back and leave comments to all of you but I did want to thank you in advance for your understanding. I am starting fresh today! To those that continued to visit, thank you so much! 

It being Tuesday means a new color palette from ColourQ #356, so pretty, just love that necklace in the inspiration photo. I hope you will find the time to play along with us this week. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your day!


I apologize for the lighting, the green on my card turned a yellowish color on my blog.

ColourQ #354


Hello...Happy Tuesday! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. My daughter and I spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Outside Lands (3 day rock concert in Golden Gate Park), This was our sixth year attending and as always, we had a fabulous time rockin' out with 70,000 other party animals each day. This year we decided to splurge and got VIP tickets, it was so nice to have real bathrooms! I have a few photos to share...hope you don't mind. Also please forgive me for being behind once again. First my computer was down for a week and once it was back up and running, I was gone for 3 days. 

 ...and yes, I was dancing on the ceiling with Lionel Richie!

The Muppets, what a fabulous show they put on!


Wanted to share this photo with you from the Outside Lands site to give you an idea of how many people were there and this was only one of 4 stages. It's crazy but so much fun!


 my black is behind the gray, love the subtle look of just a bit of black. I hope you will find the time to play along with us this week at ColourQ #354

So sorry that this is a bit of a long post...The week before I went to San Diego to visit Joyce and Marybeth, we had so much fun making cards and chatting! I look forward to my visit every summer, we always have a wonderful time.


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your week!
