Sahara Stems


We just finished my husband's birthday party and I am exhausted. Today was my son's last day of school as well. Can I just say how happy I am? Lazy Days! I can't wait to *not* have so many things to do. It is nice just to be a Mom and have fun with your kids and not worry about Homework, AR goals, etc.

I finished the gift set for my son's teacher at midnight last night and so I didn't take any pictures, but everything turned out really cute. I decided on a "strawberry" theme, since I had been making Jam. I gave her some scrumptious strawberry body butter, lip butter and soap from The Body Shop, a set of handmade cards, a notepad, pen, designer kleenex, and a jar of my yummy homemade strawberry jam and last but not least, a gift certificate to the local School Supply store. I packaged it all up in a woven purse with a cute *berry* gift tag.


So...since I don't have anything new to share, I will share a card I made quite a while ago but haven't posted on my blog. The lighting isn't very good, but the card turned out nice.

I am hoping to get back stamping tomorrow! I have really missed it! Thanks for fluttering by!

This is gorgeous! What is the texture on your blossoms? I should check to see if you uploaded it to SCS and if the recipe is there. I love to read what people use if I can't readily recognize it!

Thanks for the beautiful design-- it uplifts my morning!

This is possibly the most gorgeous card ever with this set and I think the lighting shows it off beautifully. Rather a nice ambience.
