It is my pleasure to share this adorable dragon by Dustin Pike's Garden stamp set which includes 3 different sentiments. I love this monster's adorable face!

 I  love making flowers using the die cut in Make A Card #13. The curved die from Make A Card #14 was used to cut the design paper in 3 pieces and the stitched square is from Make a Card #10.

Over The Hill - Dustin Pike - C.C. Designs

Hello!! 

It's a splendid day here and I want to share with you an adorable stamp from Over The Hill Stamp set by Dustin Pike. This is the perfect stamp for me to send to my oldest brother! We tease each other about our BD's and since I am the baby of the family - I get the best digs! 


The Image is colored with Copic Sketch markers. All the squares were cut using  C.C. Designs Squares #1 and made a border on the left side using Make a Banner # 15.  Balloons and  strings are from Make A Card #14 and the pretty paper is the Rainbow collection. The sentiment comes with the stamp set and was cut out using Rectangles #1 and placed on green paper cut out with Pinky Rectangles.  Golly gee, I forgot the clouds - they are from Make A Card #13!

Stampingbella - Marching Chick

Hello, happy campers! Spring is finally in the air here in Maryland! I feel for those who just had a winter wonderland dumped on them and prayers to those who were flooded out of their homes.  My house burnt down many, many years ago and when you realize you have lost everything you own is devasting. Where do you start? What do you do? You can start over - it's hard but you will be surprised how many come forward to help you and that in itself is a great feeling. It will come together and you will rise above it. 

Today is the beginning of a brand new challenge at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog and for a chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate to the store.  The theme is 'anything goes' and the only requirement to win is to use a stamp or products from the store - easy peasy! Today,  I get to share with you an adorable stamp from Stampingbella called Marching Chick!  It comes with this cute saying - you know when you want someone to know you really care but don't want to be too mushy- it's a perfect sentiment! 

You really need to check out the store for all the new items being added daily. The store is doing same-day shipping on orders placed before noon M-F.  Please remember if you pre-order an item it will take a little while. The store can only give you the information that is given to them from the companies and have no control on actual shipping days. Using they are spot on but once in awhile, there are so many orders for one item, it takes a little while for those companies to fill their orders. Be assure as soon as 7 Kids receive the orders they are shipped out immediately and will keep you updated if there are any delays.

Butterfly Twila by C.C.Designs

Happy Monday everyone! Hoping you had a very blessed Easter with your loved ones and friends.  My birthday was the day before Easter. 

From the time I was 4 years old, I have always loved the circus and never  realize how special my memories are until this weekend. My parents  took my brothers and me to see the very last show performed by Barnum and Baily under the big top, The Greatest Show On Earth. I was totally amazed watching all three rings with outstanding, perfect performances. There was a big marching band coming in with all kinds of animals, horses, elephants, lions, tigers, and lots more. Clowns that made you laugh over and over with their silly antics.  It was a magical night. I would hold my breath with the trapeze artist, high wire walkers, lions jumping through hoops of fire and the list goes on.  As my children grew up, I took them to every circus that came into town and noticed how much smaller they were getting and fewer animals. We mostly had the Shriners circus in town. This past weekend,  my husband purchased tickets for my daughter, SIL, grandchildren to see the circus in Baltimore for my birthday. I was so excited and couldn't wait to go.  If I would have never been to a circus - I would have probably been in heaven but while I sat there watching the performances,  I kept comparing today's show to yesterday. 

This is copy and pasted from Wikipedia:  On July 16, 1956 at the Heidelberg Race Track in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania the circus ended its season early, with President John Ringling North announcing that it would no longer exhibit under their own portable tents and starting in 1957 would exhibit in permanent venues, such as sports stadiums and arenas that had the seating already in place. An article in Life magazine reported that "a magical era had passed forever)

Animal rights. PETA- has taken the circus to courts over and over and there were  non-compliances by the circus. However, PETA paid a barn worker to state false statements to the courts. This is the last year the elephants will be used in the show. More laws were written that elephants could not be used for entertainment. 

It was found: In 1995, the circus opened the Center for Elephant Conservation in Florida for the breeding, research, and retirement of its Asian elephant herd. Located in central Florida, this 200-acre facility is dedicated to the conservation, breeding and understanding of these animals.[32] Most dogs in the shows are from animal shelters or rescued from poor living conditions.[33] The circus participates in breeding programs for endangered species used in the shows including the Bengal tiger, the Siberian tiger, and elephant. The tiger population is retired to Big Cat Rescue.[34]
 I am against any type of animal cruelty. As a child, you don't understand laws while you are watching The Greatest Show on Earth. A time of magic and wild eye wonders that will never, ever be replaced. For this I am sad.
_________________________________________________________________________________
Ok!!  Here is my card I created on Friday! I love Butterfly Twila and  her sweet cheerful face.  Happy Sentiments is a great buy with 10 verses/sentiments. I esp. like the one on my card today.The rose is the first one I have attempted to make  using 'Make A Card # 13 die set"  Not too shabby for first time:)
