Wish big...

Happy Saturday! I know, I know..who is this mysterious woman who hops on Keva's blog every other week and posts I am sorry that I haven't been around much. I wish I had a valid explanation like we took a vacation to Greece, or I had a baby, or started school...but no. I've been living the same life I have lived for the past few years. It just seems like the past several weeks have been really hectic. School started back here in our county on August 2nd, so we spent this week kinda settling into the new school and things like that. Here is a picture I took of Ava before she got on the bus. My little Pumpkin is so big! :(

Hopefully, i'll be posting regularly from this point on. I had also lost ALL mojo I had. It was honestly all I could do to make the card for today. I probably would not have even done this if I didn't promise to make the card for our Sunday School teacher's birthday breakfast tomorrow. Do you ever feel extra pressure to make really neat cards for people who are NOT stampers? I think when you show a stamper something, they know all that was involved and if you did something cool, whereas normies (lol), do not. Maybe it's just me. :)

Anyway, this card is for a birthday but I took inspiration from a challenge over on the Posse blog. Have you guys been trying to play along with us? If not, give it a go!

Ok, so here is the card:

I really like this little guy, but I really *needed* a golf set for this particular recipient.  I've put off buying the Taylored Expressions "Boys will be Boys" set until right now. I am buying it as soon as I finish this post. There is nothing worse for me than needing a certain stamp set and having been too cheap in the past to buy Not again!

Ok, well i'm off to wake up the child from her extended nap. Hope you guys are having  a fantastic day!

School started AUGUST 2nd???? NO WAY! WOW. School doesn't start until September 8th here...thank goodness! LOL
Your card is darling, and I know exactly what you mean about needing a stamp set you should have purchased when you saw it!
