An old toot is as good as a new one.

This might just be my new favorite saying! LOL And the cowboy boots? Seriously? Who wouldn't love those? 

Did I mention that I have new Rosie's Roadshow stamps sitting on my desk waiting to be inked up? I DO! See...

Look at all those fun little chickens! I can't wait! I may even make a little calendar for my Sis (don't tell her though, okay?). heehee

Okie Dokie smokie, lots to do today. Need to get going. See you all later!

Doin' the Boot Scootin' Boogie

Rrbootscootin

I was wishing I had a stamp that said "Do these boots make my butt look big?" when I made this card but alas the "boot scootin' boogie" saying worked just fine! :)

I am looking forward to this weekend...want to know why?? Because my order of NEW Rosie's Roadshow stamps came in the mail yesterday!!!! Whoop, whoop! I plan on getting my stamp on & then some!

Thanks for stopping by! Karrie

P.S. All stamps use in the above card are from Rosie's Roadshow! :)


Do I smell BBQ?

Okay, so over the weekend when looking for inspiration, I came accross this card (isn't that card FAB!?!?!?!) and fell in love with it. 

So much so that I had to make my own version of it...see...

Rrsmellbbq

I was completely out of my comfort zone with the coloring, shading, etc but I think I pulled it off. I have a hard time with the whole "direction of light" thing so I just winged it. And the grass? It could be better but overall I am happy with the card. What do you think? I would love to hear from you. 

Thanks for stopping by!

You & Me, Cupcake!

While stamping over the weekend, I became OBSESSED with banners. 3 out of my 7 cards have banners on them. My friend, Dana, had to tell me to "quit with the banners." It was funny. :)

Bernard has to be on my top 10 list of Rosie's Roadshow stamps. He is perfect in everyway. And that saying stamp? LOVE IT! (Dana, I went back & added the grass, you likey?)

Side note...I am headed back to Cali in a couple of days. It's my nephews 16th birthday. What the heck, over? When did he become a teenager? I am outside of my mind right now. I haven't even had my first child yet and here my nephew is 16!!! Shoot, my eldest niece is going to be 18 this year. YIKES! I might as well just check myself into an old folks home. LOL

Speaking of which, I better drag this old bag of a body to bed. A girl needs her beauty rest and well, it IS past 8pm. (Not that I ever make it to bed/sleep by 8pm but it sounds like an "old" thing, right? LOLOL) 

See you tomorrow, thanks for stopping by!!!

It's your birthday?

Well, I am jumping for joy! All because of YOU!

Who doesn't love birthdays? I know I love birthdays! I love celebrating my birthday ALL MONTH!! Yep. Not gonna lie, it's all about ME in September! LOL

I was dying to use that little flag/tag banner that is on the card but I was at a loss at what to do with it until... I saw Amanda. She was so happy...I knew she wouldn't mind holding up the banner AND the saying. She's just that kind of girl...sweet, kind hearted, cute, helpful...you get the picture. LOL

I really took simple off the shelf with this one. There isn't much to it. What do you think? Do you like it? I do. I really, really, do. 

Thanks for stopping by!

I know I am a little late with a 4th of July card but as soon as I saw this little stamp in my drawer and this GREAT layout (found it on Splitcoaststampers), I had to make this card...

Rrstars&stripes

Isn't that little sweetie the cutest? Rosie's Roadshow stamps ALWAYS bring a smile to my face!

Anywho, Happy 4th of July, a couple of days late. LOL

On a random note... I got some new Keens today!!! Oh my, they are so FUN and they are going to go GREAT with jeans and everything else in my closet, see...

Challenge Chicks: Halloween in July

I dusted off my stamps this weekend & got busy!

Started my warm up with my friend Dana yesterday to get my MOJO flowing again and then did a little more stamping today. Wouldn't you know it, today is the first Sunday of the month, know what that means? A new Challenge Chicks stamp challenge...just what I needed!! 

Since I already had my Rosie's Roadshow stamps out, I went crazy & whipped something up. 

Rrboo4challengechicks

Can't go wrong with Rosie's!! :) 

On a side note... this one hasn't left my side today...

We had to take the poor thing to the ER Vet on the 4th. The little rascal found some bones & ate them!! We have no idea where she found them. Anywho, she had me up at 2am on Friday and I could definitely tell something was wrong. She was restless, crying/whining, stretching, vomitting and in obvious pain. I was at a loss at what to do for her, so after a couple of hours we decided to take her in. 

Too much $$$ and a follow up visit later... she is back to normal (other than she wants to be close to her mommy). She has been my personal posse for the past couple of days. LOL

I am just thankful she is okay!! Whew! 

Thanks for stopping by, I have missed you!
