It should prove to be an intersting move. My daughter, who is 3, is sick with an ear infection and is on medication. My son, who will be 2 the beginning of October, doesn't have a clue what is going on! I am flying alone with both of them. But they are both good travelers.
Once our belongings arrive at the new house and I get my Internet service installed, I will be back online. It will about a week. So don't forget about me!
Be sure to keep checking back because I will have some special surprises for you. Don't you just love a good surprise and a stamping related one at that!
Keep us in your thoughts for a safe trip for us and our things. Oh, and once I get back online, I will let you in on the new location!

My daughter's last day of school will be Thursday since we are moving. She has two great teachers and I am sad she won't be able to finish out the year with them. By the way, she is 3.5 years old. But these teachers are really wonderful the way they handle these little ones.
Anyhow, I wanted to give them a little something, which will be a box of See's candy. This card is for Mr. Jeffery. I used Rose Red, Blue Bayou and Close to Cocoa card stock. I also used a piece of Apple Cider on the bottom and topped it off with Blue Bayou ribbon. The stamp set is Bronc Buster on p.89.

After Joni left, I noticed that the SCS Color Challenge was the exact colors in the card we made! So I added some Copper Brads and the Scallop Circle Punch piece. I was so happy with my end result.
I've seen this style card around and really liked it. When I saw one on Patty Bennett's blog, she was nice enough to give some dimensions to make the card. Thanks Patty! I'll be doing more of these!
Have a great day.

Tanya shared that her favorite go-to accessory is 'Ribbon, ribbon and more ribbon.' Her second choice is brads. She is in good company because most of you love ribbon. But how can you not! There are a lot of glitter people out there too!
My favorite accessories are punches. Most of my cards use at least one punch. My favorite is the scallop punch. Love that one!
I was happy to see that the Simply Scrappin' Kits were mentioned. It you haven't tried these kits, you have to! Not only will you make great scrapbook pages but you can make cute quick and easy cards too.
Thank you all for your comments! It was so much fun to read what everyone likes to use. Don't forget to check next Friday for the next TGI Friday Freebie!

My great-niece's fourth birthday is in October and these colors reminded of a little girl. Since she is only 4, I tried to keep the card cute and simple. This card is 5 x 5 in size. I used Cutie Pie Designer Series paper p. 173 for the background. The small flowers were done with the Spring Flower Bouquet punch on p. 183. 'Giggle' is from Warm Words stamp set p. 142. I use that set so much for all different occasions. I had to get the new Spiral Punch p. 183 in there as well.
Try out the Color Challenge from Splitcoast sometime. It is really fun. Have a great day!

On Saturday, my running shoes were back in action after sitting for 4 weeks! My training has been hit or miss due to our pending move (too long of a story). But Saturday I was able to get out and run 12 miles. Wow, it was great to be running again. I didn't realize how much I missed it. My run felt good and I was happy to get the miles in.
Now when I woke up on Sunday, that was a different story. Not running for 4 weeks makes a huge difference. I wasn't this sore after my last marathon. They say that your body remembers and will bounce back. I have learned that your body also holds a grudge and makes you pay when you don't take care of it ;-)
So I'll be running a couple times a week from now until Long Beach!
