Well hello there...

*Click image for clearer view*

I didn't mean to be gone for so long. But we are currently in transition. As of two days ago we are officially in Oregon.  The weather has been great and the scenery spectacular. On the downside we are still in search of a home. Some great friends of ours were gracious enough to allows us to stay in their home for the summer till we find a place of our own. So we are really pressed with time and praying that God will lead us to the right place.

My craft studio is in boxes in California and to say that I miss them would be a huge understatement. But I do have some cards I created before packing up which I haven't shared with you all :) 

-And while I may not be in a celebration mode there is plenty to be grateful for like this sweet card I'll be giving to a great friend of mine on her birthday :)

I love the newsprint pattern paper and the splash of colors. The sentiment was both handwriting and a stamp. The sweet flower from Lawn Fawn's petite florals with a dab of shimmer adds the perfect amount of embellishment to this sweet birthday card. 

Thanks for coming by I'll be back soon with pics from around the area I'm currently at and more.

Coolest Dad


I'm back today to share my take on this weeks Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World. I found this challenge to be quite irresistible and the reason being I just bought 12 molds to make the cutest popsicles and I also found a yummy recipe book ;) 

So my inspiration from the scrumptious looking image was the popsicle itself. I've been wanting to create one for sometime now and this challenge just pulled me right over.

To create it I used PTI's summer rise & kraft cardstock, studio G frame and a handwritten sentiment to go with it. And just to add to the look I wrapped it up in a clear sheet. From top to bottom of stick this card measures 6" x 21/2 (at the widest end). 

Today seems like it'll be sunny and warm day, might be tempted to make a few popsicles ;) 

Thanks for coming by!
