Here's a little eye candy!!! LOL

Hey friends. Blogger gave me nothing but problems on Friday and Saturday nite so I couldn't post my class samples. How are you today?? Hope you are having a great day full of sunshine. I love my family and friends so much and I am so greatful for the little things in life. Its what matters most to me. Time to go sweep my front entrance and pick up the pieces from the horrible storms (no lie my plants are all hacked off from hail balls and horrific winds). I just want to cry but there are worse things that could have happened thank not good Lord. It was so beautiful out there on my little deck until Friday evening. Oh well...Mother Nature, I have BIG issues with you!! How dare you crumble my little world in just a few minutes. The beat goes on. Thanks for stopping by today. Its so humid here again. Yuck a do. What's a girl to do?? I feel like going to buy more plants but that's not going to happen. Should I just go look??? Finally Blogger just let me upload a photo after so many tries!!! Its so frustrating. I will try to post little Miss Beach Bum tonight. Thanks Candy for being my assistant photographer when Grandma Jan was not available. You rock!! Tami

Great day, great friends but not so great weather...

Have you missed me? Its been one heck of a week and I will spare you the details. Here's a card I taught this week and I love the stamp by Stampendous and of course the October Afternoon paper. I even purchased a watermelon last week. We had really bad storms on Friday night and my deck plants really got a beaten. It was so bad and the wind,hail, and heavy rain was unreal not to mention the thunder and lightening. Happy Sunday. I had a great Saturday with my friends. You know who you are and thanks so much for your kindness. I will be back again on Sunday with another card and that's a fact Jack. Thanks for stopping by. Its always nice to hear from you. Tami

I watered my card and it grew!!

SEE previous post. I felt the need to water my card. Nightie night. Tami

How does your garden grow?

Hello friends. How goes the battle? Its super late now but I wanted to post a card I taught Wed. at Smudges. Had a great time with the ladies and it was also our monthly ATC night. Our theme was cold drinks and Ruth Ann did a fabo job leading our group. It was a great day but quite HOT and HUMID. I've been keeping busy with life and other personal issues (bills, car). I have new classes next week at Anchor Paper and Smudges, Tues. and Wed. respectively. I've certainly had my share of DeLovely Cosmo Cricket goodness lately but I never get tired of the paper line. Its perfect for summer and I love it all. I have lots of class samples to share with you. I even have my own personal photographer Grandma Jan!! Thanks girlfriend. I appreciate all your efforts and kindness very much. Actually we are going on a little roadtrip this Sat. with our other friend Chris. Woo hoo. Can't wait!! I shouldn't be going but I just gotta get out of town again!! Life is good when you have great friends!! Don't you agree? We are family (think of the song)!! : )

Its time to hit the hay. Sweet dreams and I wish you a very pleasant Thurs. Its going to be another hot one again today with high humidity...87 degrees yuck. I plan to post another card later on today so I hope you will check back Jack!! Thanks for popping by the 'ole bloggie and please feel free to say *hello* yellow and be a good fellow!! Such a poet and didn't know it. Tami Whami
PS. Smudges sells the Pure Innocence stamps and I love them. Total sweetness. I used this line on my card and I would love more of these incredibly cute stamps! A girl can dream right?? I now own the ice cream cone girl. Can't wait to ink her up in just a bit. Sorry for the long post.

Here Kitty Kitty!!

I sent this card off to a friend today and I purchased it from Jessica, another stamping instructor. I know bad me but I love Greeting Farm images and I like to support other artists when I am able. Why not spread the love? It was very humid today and I hate weather like this. I got trapped in road construction twice and it was brutal with NO air. I kept thinking about all the men laying asphalt in the wicked heat. Watching the Bachelorette now even though I'm a little old for the show. Gotta run as my friend Mary is calling. I have four classes this week so I hope I get some signups. Cheers my friends and thanks for stopping by the 'ole blog. Tami
