Hootin' Tootin' Woot Loot - Laura's Laugh Lines
Peep Sweets - Nancy P

Triple Shot, Double Shot & Single Shot - Anna W (Sharon in NE tried to claim this one too! LOL)
Latte Loot - Kathi (are you seeing a coffee theme here?)
Perks for my Peeps - Sharon in NE Evilgrin (do you know she came up with this while in her bible study class????)

Mom, this post is for you!

Here are the pics of Buddy that I promised...see all the grey? Actually, it is all white, not grey. Such a distinguished looking old fart, huh? hahahaha


In the pic above he was barking at me while I was encouraging him to get out of the pool. It is quite funny, me clapping my hands and telling him what a good boy he is, just to get him to find the strength to get out. I also found that getting the hose out and threatening to spray him works too, but I only do that if I am desperate. Hey, a girl has to do what a girl has to do, don't think bad of me because of it. :)

Here's another one...


Still barking at me, letting me know that he is excited and wants to get out of the pool. Too funny, huh? I couldn't snap him actually climbing out cause I had to get his bath towel ready to dry him off. Of course, once he gets out, he thinks he is a little puppy and runs all over the yard while I chase him with the towel. He thinks he is pretty funny. I think he is the greatest thing ever. I love this old fart. LOL

Oh! And while I was going through all this with Buddy, this was Molly inside the house...


Life is so rough at the Baker house.... LOLOLOL

Love ya Mom!

Kare xoxoxoxo

Have a Very Fairy Christmas!

Sorry it took me so long to post today...I have been a VERY busy girl today! Robert and I went to breakfast, took Harvey (our little pool cleaner thingy that swims in the bottom of our pool) to the Doctor, had three appointments for bids and then I had to take a little nap, answer some email, stamp, blah, blah, blah. Is that a vacation or what? LOL

Enough of all the vacation talk, here is another sneak peek of one of the new releases coming out TOMORROW from The Cat's Pajamas. WOOHOO!!!!


You will notice over the next couple of days that I have a thing for ornaments. LOL All of my Christmas cards this year MAY have an ornament of some kind on them. Or, shaped like one... :)

Okie dokie, I am off to clean my desk AGAIN!! It is a CONSTANT battle for me. Why is that? Why am I such a messy stamper? I don't understand it. URGH!! To make me feel better I think I will go grab an ice cream. LOL

Have a great night Peeps! See ya tomorrow!

Alright, tell me...have you all been stalking the TCP DT blogs for sneak peeks this week? And what do you think so far? You likey? Cause me likey a WHOLE lot! I know I say this every release but these are some of the best stamps! Alma kills me with her creativity. Her images are soooo much FUN! I am like a kid in a candy shop when she shows the DT a sneak peek. And then, after she shows us? I swear I have ants in my pants. I have a hard time not bugging her every FIVE minutes. Gimme the stamps Alma, GIMME THE STAMPS!!! LOL

Kinda like you guys with the eye me the card Karrie, SHOW ME THE CARD!!! LOL


Is that punch from Martha Stewart the best or what? I have to admit, she had TWO very, very, very cool punches released this year. The fence and the goo. I haven't used the goo one yet but I will soon! Very soon! LOL

Okay, so tell me, am I on the money with my card today? I have so many more Halloween ideas that I want to get done but I really need to finish up on my Fairy cards. YIKES!! I will start posting those tomorrow. YEAH!!!
