Miss Anya and Rockstar Anya

Happy Sunday to everyone! I worked on a couple of cards today as I was watching the Oscar's Red Carpet show. Which I normally don't watch...but since Rob from Twilight is on, I thought I'd check it out...lol! Anyhow, not much to say so here are the cards...

Using the new Miss Anya set...love these stamps!

Absolutely love this stamp! Simple, simple card, but I love how the DP paper spotlights the stamp. I felt adding anything would have taken away from it.

Sweetie Stamps

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having and had a wonderful 3 day weekend! Anyhow this'll be a quick and short post.

I've been given the OK by Mindy to get the Sweeties made into rubber stamps. I'm still at the early stage of researching a good company that will manufaturer the stamps. Please leave me a comment if you're interested in buying these cute little sweeties. I by no means will be selling them in the capacity that of The Greeting Farm, but I think I'll have enough interest to get a few made. So if you would so kindly leave me a comment regarding this issue, I would truly appreciate it!!!

Hope you have a great Monday. I know for most, your Monday is almost over...so I say to you, I hope you had a great Monday and a great week to follow!

Valentine Lollipop Treats

Favors I did for Mindy using her Love Bandit kit:

I've been Tagged

Joy of A Place to Be Me tagged me to participate in this fun game. I'm supposed to go the 6th picture, in my 6th folder, where I store my pictures, and then tell the story behind that picture. Here's the picture:
This is my sweet Avery, back in August 2007. I took this picture because he was lying halfway off his bed. What's the big deal? Well that he was half on his bed and half on the floor. Yet he seemed so comfortable. Now you know had it been us humans we'd really wouldn't have a smile on our face or stay in that position for very long. But not my Avery he always found the oddest position the most comfortable one and always with a smile! Sadly Avery passed away June 2008 and I am still having a difficult time with his passing. I don't have any kids yet so Avery was my first child and its the worst feeling in the world to have to make the decision to put him down so he no longer sufferd. To this day I still question myself on whether or not we waited to long... (*o*)

OK, I know this was suppose to be a fun game, but this was the sixth picture in my sixth folder.

Sheesh, I'm not sure who to tag, all my bloggin' friends has been tagged! I'll have to come back to this part of the game.

Favorite LO

This has to be my one of my favorite LOs. This was a lift from one of my favorite scrappers Veronica Ponce. Doing this LO totally brought back so many wonderful memories! As most of you know I grew up in Japan and it's a place I consider home. Anyhow, this LO was of my years in Elementary, I'm missing a couple of class pictures... Oh well, I'm hoping my mom will find them one day! I decided to jot down a few of my memories during my time at Sullivan Elementary instead of journaling. TFS!
