Daydreaming of You ...

Hey Ya's!  Are you ready for the weekend?  :)

The weather here has been up and down .. hot then cool, hot then cool.  hmmmm ... but we have been enjoying the roses that has been blooming in our back yard.  I mentioned to one of my friends that I don't have the green thumb to plant anything .. but I am very capable of cutting the flowers to place into vases.  ;)  hehehe!  I'll show you a photo at the end of my post of some we picked a couple weeks ago.

I recently made a card with an Elisabeth Bell image, I think she is called "Daisy".  She was one of the first stamps I bought back in 2009 and I still love her!  I've been trying to colour up images that I've still not played with .. but saw this one as I was looking through my things and had to ink her again.  :)  She's coloured with Distress Reinkers, some Prisma Pencils and Watercolors.










Thank you so very much for stopping by and visiting me .. I truly appreciate it and would love to hear from you!  :)

Wishing you all a beautiful day!

Hugs,
Elise

Sending Kisses ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you all had a beautiful weekend and a very Happy Mother's Day!!!

Every Mother's Day for the past few years .. my hubby will let Bodhi choose a card for me.  And it never fails .. but Bodhi chooses the most PERFECT cards.  It hits my heart and fills me with love .. but this year .. Bodhi's card literally made me cry.  Flat out tears streaming down my cheeks as I opened it to read such beautiful words .. but the card also played the song, "You are my Sunshine".   omword .. every time I hear that song I get so choked up!!!

It makes me think of ... childhood, of purity, of days when grasshoppers and worms were things to look forward to in my backyard as a kid, of singing it to my parents, of love and special friendships.  Makes me think of my Bodhi being born, of how much I love him and how much happiness he brings to my life .. just so many memories and emotions all bundled up in a song.

Annnnnnyway .. lol!  I made a card using a Mo Manning image called "Kissy" that I've had for some time and finally coloured her up.  She makes me smile!  And that pink lace behind is from the lovely Ribbon Girl Store. :)





Thank you so much for visiting me .. I truly do appreciate it!  I'll see you again soon!

Have a lovely day!

Hugs,
Elise

Bodhi's counting down the last weeks of school .. only one more month to go and it's Summer vacation for him once again.  Can you believe it?!  Is it just me or are the days going faster and faster?!  sigh ... can someone help me invent a time machine so we can start over from the day we want over and over again?  LOL!

Well, I've made a card last week and here it is:

Thinking of You ...

Hey Ya's!  The weekend is approaching quick .. are you ready?  :)

My little Bodhi had a "Fun Run" at school today to help raise money for the school.  They had 40 minutes to do laps around the cones .. and do you know he ran what equaled to 3 miles?!!!!!!  Yes!  I tell ya .. he has the energy of a battery.  lol!  And then when he came home from school, he STILL wanted to play!  omgosh right?!  Sheeesh .. I wish I still had that kind of energy!  lol!

Well, I've had fun making a card using some beautiful Maja Papers given to me by a lovely friend .. thank you dear!  :)




That cute lil' button and twine is from the fabulous Ribbon Girl Store.

Gratefulness ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you are all having a lovely week so far!

I have been having quite the sweet tooth lately .. and so I hit the store today (specifically Target .. hehe) and bought some of their Easter candy that they have on sale now.  Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate .. everything I got .. CHOC-O-LATE!  ;)  We normally try to stay away from sweets .. maybe I need a little comforting that I don't even know about .. lol .. but I definitely am craving for it terribly!  ;)

Well, here's a Spring card that I've finally made.  I love lambs .. they're so sweet aren't they?  I wish I could have a pasture full of them!  :) .. along with cows, goats, horses, chickens .. I'd so love that!



Well, thank you so much for visiting me and I wish you all a most BEAUTIFUL day!

I'll see you again soon!

Gypsy Chick ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you all had a BEAUTIFUL Easter!

We had a lovely Easter here .. Bodhi had fun finding Easter eggs and then we did our egg colourings. Can't believe his Easter break is over already .. gosh that went by TOO quick .. doesn't it always?  :(

Well, back in February I had coloured an image from Jeremiah Ketner and worked on an album which took me FOREVER to complete ... because I was a bit clueless on basically .. everything.  lol! Wow .. I had no idea!  I put it aside a few times to work on other things .. and I finally finished this a couple weeks ago.

I won't show you photo's of every single page I did .. cause it would be a LOT of photos (and I already have a lot here .. lol) .. but each turn holds something different.

Thinking of You ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you're having a beautiful week so far .. getting ready for the weekend soon!  :)

My little man Bodhi will be on his Easter Break next week .. so we're looking forward to spending a lot of time just doing what we feel like doing.  ;)

I got to making a card using another Jeremiah Ketner's images that you can find here in his shop.  For some reason, I don't see this particular image available in his shop anymore .. I'm not sure why.  Hmmmmm .....  but I am glad I got her before he decided to remove her.

I've also used some goodies from the lovely Ribbon Girl store such as:
