Lawn Fawn Goodness

Can I just say there are way to many great products out there. One product I talking about today is Lawn Fawn stamps love them!!!
They stamp like a dream and seriously cute and even better a great price you gotta love that!!!! These two sets I have had for awhile and just got around to playing with them I know bad me but it was worth the wait because I adore them. They really do make cardmaking soo fun!!!
So thats my find for today I know it's nothing new because I am sure most of you have already got these gems in your crafty hands.
Today I am embrassing every moment with my kids because they start school tomorrow and it really is going to be hard for me to see them get on that bus there will be tears!!!

Happy Monday did everyone have a great weekend? It was gorgeous here and we are in for another heat wave which is unusual this time of year for CT. This card I did for The Trigger Tuesday challenge for Moxie Fab World. This card uses the Ippity kit Quotes A La Happy and some Pink Paislee Dp. I really had alot of fun putting this card together it might have something to do with these fabulous stamps!!!

Also don't forget about Paper Maniac's HUGE sale going on right now really I cannot believe all the great stuff that's on sale it's dangerous but oh so good!!!!

Happy Monday I sure did miss all of my fabulous blogging friends!!!! I really want to start off by saying Thank You so much for sticking with me while i was on vacation and for all your wonderful comments I read each and everyone and you are all so nice and they mean so much to me!!!! I am really sorry I missed all the Ippity release fun.

So back to business I so missed crafting and it felt really good to make a card again!!!

Todays Ippity challenge to use string and I thought it would be a nice change to make a fun border around my card with some Martha Stewart bakers twine.

For My house I used the corner stamp from You Deserve for the roof just another fun way to use this stamp and for the sentiment I used the stamps from House A Home along with Echo Park which I just love!!!!
