French fave!!

Hi again...another quick share for you today! This is one of the tags I made for my customers orders last time...I absolutely love the stamp set French Foliage and one of my fave colour combos is Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake it!

The background of the Very Vanilla tag is stamped with the script from the stamp set and the sentiment is from the stamp set Thank you is a perfect on this tag!

The flower is from my stash, I found package of them at the local Dollar store....I should have bought more, they are so pretty!
The ribbon is also from my stash....I have lots of goodies in my stash, it's like a treasure trove!
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your time with me!

Hello!! Happy Summer....

Wow...where do I start?  I've been away from blogging for over a month....but I'm back!  First I want to say thank you so much to everyone who has subscribed and left messages on my blog and to give a warm welcoming hug to all the newcomers!  I love having you here with me!

My summer has been crazy busy so far, but lots of fun.  We've had two sets of company come to stay with us which was fun in spite of the weather not really cooperating.  We've also been away to Whistler for a mini holiday and had some birthdays to celebrate too.

This is what summer is like for my darling LilyBean!  She's found a new spot, the little padded bench on my stairway landing.  She's so sweet and happy all the time!  Life is wonderful,  all a girl has to do is tuck up in the cushions and keep a lazy eye on what everyone's doing!  Oh and to check on her own pot of catnip on the balcony...that's important too!

I finally got a new camera and I love it!  It's a Canon Power Shot Elph 300and it's super easy to use and takes great pictures.  I  have a video setting on it too, so I'll have to give that a whirl and see what I can do with it.  I've taken some pictures of some cards I've been making so I'll have to share those in the next day or two. 

Here's a little share for you....I ran out of my Stamping Mist between orders ages ago, so I found this recipe online for stamp cleaner.  It works great and what I really like it for, is to refresh the baby wipes I use to clean my stamps...sometimes the baby wipes dry out on me as I haven't closed the latch properly! I keep it in a spray bottle and it works great.  I'm not sure who the created the original recipe, if anyone knows, I'd love to give proper credit!  I bought all the ingredients at my grocery store.

Homemade Stamp Cleaner

1 cup Distilled Water
1 1/2 Teaspoons Baby Wash
1 Tablespoon Glycerine and Rose Water sorry, I just changed the above... that should be 1 Tablespoon of Glycerin and Rose Water!!  Thanks so much Angie for catching that for me!!  You are so sweet and I really appreciate your email!! Big hugs!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your time with me!
