Happy Saturday everyone! Spring is in the air, I swear I can feel it...and we spring the clocks forward this weekend whoohoo! My fave time of the year and I saw some flowers pushing up in the soil in my flowerbeds so its coming soon and this gal cannot wait. Because as the picture shows below...I'm SICK of winter...sick of snow every week..sick of the bitter cold. Mother Nature better get with the show, yes ma'am!

Happy Wednesday folks! I am out all day doing things I don't like to do...doctors appts and testing so I'm pretending its Friday and the weekend is here and I'm in a sunny, warm location near the beach. Hey I always said I veered towards the slightly crazy side of living LOL...and that's how I gotta think about things right now or I will go for-realzers-go-cray-cray-crazy!!!!
So I was feeling a little Irish yesterday...it totally inspired my card today...my Irish Grandma is smiling down on me I think. And I needed a bit of clean-and-simple and the happiness of kelly green :)

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope you had a good 3 day weekend if you had off for President's Day here in the States. My kids had 5 days off due to the 18" of YUCKY snow we got and we got another inch last night. However it will be in the high 50's and low 60's this week so I'm praying most of this snow melts away. And melting snow means a muddy yard which translates to muddy paws for my dogs LOL...I have to keep towels by the patio door and wipe their paws when they come in (which they hate). I'm soooooo ready for Spring..this winter has been BRUTAL and I cannot wait to see green grass, flowers in bloom and warm breezes coming through the window.
We had a great Valentine's Day...you can see what Cupid brought my hubby and the teens here. I got tickets to see Billy Joel this summer with the hubs...it will be my 4th time seeing him live and I just love him. Little bit of fun trivia for you: Alexa my daughter was named after Billy Joel & Christie Brinkley's daughter Alexa Ray :) And Riley had a great 16th birthday....you can read all about him through the years on my other blog HERE. He opted for a big present instead of a trip (I took Alexa to Cali for her 16th) so he got an Alienware Gaming Laptop to play all his battle/strategy games and a Team USA Hockey jersey...so he was a very happy boy!!
Ok onto my project for the day......

Happy Happy Tuesday & February 4th to you all! Did anyone watch the Superbowl on Sunday? We watched...thought it was kind of a snooze-fest unless you were a Seahawks fan. We were rooting for the Broncos because we like Peyton but I like Russell Wilson too :) I like a closer and more competitive game like last year's SB personally...makes it more fun and exciting! And the food I made was yummy...in fact we had leftovers last night...some of the recipes are at my other blog here if you are interested.
However I love Bruno Mars and I thought he knocked it out of the park...wish he'd played longer. He's just a talented dancer, choreographer, musician and singer. Would love to see him in concert but looks like we will be over in Europe when he's hear near DC...maybe next year!

Happy Wednesday everyone...are you warm wherever you are? Its cold, cold, cold here...temps in the teens in Virginia...not so much fun. And the hubs is in NYC so I'm praying that we have NO incidents with frozen pipes tonight..because I may lose my head if they do...I'm so over it all ugh. Spring...ohhhh spring where art thou Spring???????
Then you have Baylee my other cairn (on right) who HATES the snow...she's my outside dog that wants to be out all the time UNLESS its snowing. And Casey never wants to spend time outside unless it IS snowing! Ay yi yi they try and make me crazy me thinks. Baylee was staring at me with her ears back cuz she'd had ENOUGH of my picture taking and wanted to come in LOL!

Happy Tuesday everyone! It is a SNOWY & COLD Tuesday here in Virginia. We are being hit with another cold blast this week and supposedly 8 inches of snow...can you tell I'm so thrilled. I told Winter I was breaking up with him but he didn't get the message ;) So it took a whole week for me to get over the flu...I am not wishing it on anyone that's for sure, so hope everyone is doing well. And my pipe mess is cleaned up but we still have to drywall the walls and paint and redo the carpet so that will take a few weekends to get it all done. No fun that's for sure...doing that work delays all the OTHER work I gotta do LOL..oy vey!

Isn't Freida Fox the cutest...yes she's a girl in the set but I have made "her" a "boy" for this project lol! So I'm naming him FRED FOX for my project today bwahahaha! This stamp set is from Reverse Confetti's new line of "Quirky Cuties" that are being released today...hop over to the store to check them ALL out! I am looking ahead towards Valentine's Day so I decided to make a fun V-Day card boy style. My last project with this set HERE was girly themed so I decided to switch it up a bit.
The papers are a mix of Docrafts Papermania (b&w) and Bazzill Basics (red). I used a few of my Spellbinders dies to make the pinking circle element and the hearts...and a CB folder to emboss the white cardstock. The arrow I made myself because I lack any arrow dies (need the Confetti die here) and stamped the "Hey Foxy!" in white palette ink on it. HINT: she/he would be cute flocked.
So YES Freida Fox can be turned into Fred Fox heehee...love to make my stamps versatile in many ways so by cropping off the bottom of "her" it eliminated the dress. I paperpieced his sweater and scarf to match the papers I used. TIP: always shade your paper pieces when you have a colored image or else the paper piecing looks flat next to your lovely shaded and colored image. I shaded mine with C7 & C5 to add in some dimension. And I colored the image with Copics...the C Grays and then added Diamond Glaze to his "optional" glasses you can add on. I also decided to cut him out and pop him up with dimensionals on my embossed circle...I love lots of layers and textures on my cards!
