Rose Hello!

Hey everyone! I've got another card to share with you today! {told ya I was crafting!}

I'd say that I knew it looked sorta vintage right when I started but I didn't! Only when I started writing{typing} this post, I realized that it looked a bit old! Those stars were made from a stencil and the flower in the middle of the card was a lot of squiggles! I have no clue was the main image should be on it and I pondered this even though I didn't think that this card was  even a bit vintage! What do image or sentiment do you usually pick for your vintage cards?

Also, I was told { thanks Patti!} that Simon Says Stamp had a challenge for kids! So I'm entering in that and if you know anyone under 16 that likes to craft, tell them about it!

I'm also entering in the open challenge at Top Tip Tuesday!

Hope you have a fab day! ( I'm thinking about ice cream on this partly cloudy day!:)

{Spring Smile} & Bulldog Thanks!

Hey! How are you enjoying this fabulous Wednesday? I'm enjoying my week without school!! Nothing much though. 

Since I got a whole day to do things this week, I've been crafting my way though the time!
 This bookmark was just a scrap of patterned paper when I found it! I paperpieced the little birdy and layered the top and bottom with strips of more patterned paper! I also punched some of those papers with the doily lace border punch by Martha Stewart. Some awesome yellow sting too! I had the springness in my head! This was for the recipe challenge at Catered Crop and I used: Striped DP,twine, and SPRING!! And also at Top Tip Tuesday, it's an open challenge!

I'm just gonna say that this is for my teacher! I used lots of different colors of spray that I put in a Mini Mister and put a loads of color on it! The bulldog is from a stampset by Inkadinkado!
Have a fabulous day!!

Some News...

How's everyone doing?! It's been rainy and cloudy over here but the sun peeks out now and again!!

Next week is my spring break so hopefully I get some crafting in!

I am taking writing classes and today I got back one of my personal narratives from about two weeks ago!! My teacher loved it and showed it to one of the other teacher that I don't know! I wanted to share it with you since my writing rarely is really good to the teacher! Our topic was to write about a time when we made an important discovery! Tell me what you think about it!

    I scanned the aisle again. There were bananas, apples, and grapes. I was to pick which I wanted for my snack next week. I decided to see which I would enjoy the most throughout the week. It was a tough competition between the apples and bananas, so I took the sack of grapes.
    As I headed for our shopping cart, I noticed my mom holding a bag of "oranges". I soon read the label and knew it was grapefruit. My mom insisted that grapefruit was tasty and good for my health. I had never tried grapefruit, so I loaded it into our cart and kept on shopping.
    This fruit seemed oddly peculiar. It did not look like a grape, but it was still a fruit! It also was shaped and colored very similar to an orange. I guessed that it would be in the orange "family" because it looked similar, but I also thought it might taste similar too!
    When we arrived home, the first thing my mother did was open the pack of grapefruit. She took out a knife and started to cut slices of grapefruit. Then, when she offered me a slice, I was shocked! Inside, the fruit wasn't orange like I predicted, but pink! It seemed very mysterious, so I took an enormous bite out of my slice. A sour taste flooded my mouth. No matter how hard I tried, the sourness was still unwilling to leave my taste-buds! I sat down, not taking another bite. "Doesn't this taste great?" asked my mom after she ate a few slices.
    I tried to register her opinion but I couldn't get myself to agree. Then, surprisingly, a tiny bit of sweetness appeared in my mouth but as fast as it came, it went. Now, I have a new food to my list of foods I don't like. I had made an important discovery; I don't like grapefruit!

Have a great weekend!

The Week-endness of Weekends

Hope your having a fabulous day! I haven't been posting much but I'm still creating!

Before I talk about me, I wanna wish a fabulous birthday to Patti J.!
She's turning "29" and she's been a fabulous blogging friend especially when I first started cardmaking! Another year of awesomeness!! Happy Birthday!!

Now, yesterday, I had a trip through my city of Seattle! I've been here before but love it every time!

Here's one of the photos I took of the amazing Cherry Blossoms in the UW:

And this is the awesome Pike Place  Market at our Downtown!

I just learned that at the Pike Place Market, there's the first Starbucks there so for all you coffee lovers, it's a really cool place!

And they sell amazing flowers there too! They're all blooming and super pretty too!
Well that was my Saturday! I also have a little bookmark out of some scraps.

The only ingredients I know that went into this was a "hello" stamp from Hampton Art's Kelly's Sentiments!

Have a great day!
