Kip the Baseball Fairy

Today we say goodbye to regular season baseball.  After last season’s World Series win, it’s been a major letdown to be the bottom of the AL East this year…and after all the trades, it’s been rough to watch but I’m trying to hang in there in hopes that 2015 will be much better!


I found this stamp the other day when looking for fall/Halloween stamps in my stash. It’s Kip the Baseball Fairy from Paper Makeup Stamps. I forgot I had him and the poor boy hadn’t seen ink yet.  So I remedied that today.  I used a sketch from The Pink Elephant Challenge and I’d also like to enter my card into the Anything Goes challenge at Sister Act Card Challenge.

We’ll be watching the last game this afternoon and then I need to get cracking on October’s calendar pages. I can’t believe another month has flown by!

Apple Picking 2014

We went apple picking last weekend. It turned out to be super hot and where we picked (the Cortland apples) were a bit picked over so I couldn’t reach anything.  Mike was able to pick enough for us to make something with this week.







Here is the apple pear crisp we made the other night…it’s not pretty but it was delicious! Click HERE for the recipe we used.



Have a great night!


I Love You!

Good morning!


Today my husband and I celebrate our 4 year wedding anniversary :-)



This is the card I made him this morning, as always I work better under pressure LOL!

2014 Card 133 - PS Sweet Hearts anniversary card


I was going through my stamp stash last night pulling out all of my Fall & Halloween stamps and came across this Paper Smooches Sweet Hearts stamp set.  Since it hadn’t been used, I thought it would be a good set to use on Mike’s card.  Sorry it’s a little blurry…think I need to clean my phone lens!


I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches~

Birthday Cupcake

Good morning!


I ended up creating a 2nd card last night. This one is for the House Mouse Paper Piecing challenge (HMFMC178) and the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge.


2014 Card 132 - House Mouse Birthday Cupcake


This stamp was laying on top of my “A & B” box of stamps and good for paper piecing. I used Authentique’s Wishes paper pad on the candles and the cupcake wrapper.  I rotated the sketch to fit my image better.  I think overall it turned out pretty cute!


Here is the sketch~
