She bakes too...

Oh yes Peeps, one thing that not too many people know about me is that I LOVE to bake! I even find it RELAXING after a stressful day at work. Uh huh, today was one of those days...


Yes, just in case you are wondering... I made them from scratch including the THE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING!! Yummmm! :)


I made enough for everyone on my team at work but I have to tell you... I would much rather share them with YOU!

Okay, so here is my oldies card... check it out...


I shamelessly cased this card several years back and I have to tell you, I would totally do it again. I love coffee and well, this card screams COFFEE! LOL

Alright, off to work on my Cat's Pajamas samples...

Toodles Peeps! :)


Oldies week is getting off to a slow start. Only one person left a comment today (Thanks Nancy!!) about my bunny card. WHAT? You don't like bunnies?? So sad... poor bunny, no love for you. :(

So what about Snowmen? Anyone like snowmen? How about this one?


I love him. I love him so much that I can't seem to give him away. I pull him out every year and somehow he always ends up back in the drawer so that we can spend another year together. LOL

Alright, I am off like a prom dress, night Peeps!! :)

So little time...

I spent all day today making samples with the new Cat's Pajamas Holiday designs (sorry no peeking) and did not get a chance to stamp anything for the ole blog... sigh... SOOOOOO I decided I would go through all of my OLD cards (from a few years ago) and pull some to share. You will definitely be able to tell that I have improved my stamping skills over the years! LOL

Here is an Easter one from like 6 or 7 years ago (why do I still have this card????)...


It cracks me up! Remember when that kind of ribbon was a MUST HAVE?? Oh my goodness, I had so much of it! LOL I still have a ton of ribbon but not THAT kind! :)

Okay Peeps, I am ready to hit the sack. I will chat with you tomorrow. Night!! :)

Happy Birthday to YOU!!

Today is my friend Kathee's birthday, Happy Birthday #1!!! I sent her card out on Monday, can you believe it, I WAS EARLY!! YEAH! Miracles abound in the Baker household! LOL

Get this, I actually sent out a BUNCH of cards this week; for no apparent reason either. Just wanted people to know I was thinking of them. It felt really good doing it. I need to be more diligent at that. Besides, I am running out of room for all of these cards, they have to start getting out of the house! LOL

Which gives me an idea... do you want some of my cards? Do you? Cause if you do, leave a comment on my blog and I will pick FIVE random people to get a couple cards a piece. What do you think? Sound good? If so, post below and YOU may be one of the lucky FIVE!! Hmmm, so what should you comment about? I know, I know. Tell me how you heard about my blog and I will send the person who referred you here some cards too!! YEAH, Yeah, let's do that. So comment away people!! I will keep this open until noon on Sunday that way I can get everyone's cards out in the mail on Monday. Deal? DEAL!! Oh, this is so exciting!! I love it!

Alrighty then, want to see my card for the day? Check it out:


This isn't the card I sent my friend Kathee, although, I think she would have liked this one as well... :)
