As my chicks grow...

And as I find more time to get creative, I thought I would share some of my creations, as well as my time with others. Hopefully I will make new friendships and create lasting bonds over paper, adhesive, and embellishments. So sit back, relax, and let's share...have a cup of coffee, or tea, or in my case a and let's just have a blast creating, finding new projects to make together, and gathering our supplies for future endeavors!

School's Out for Summer Blog Hop

Made by Fancy With Nancy

Hello, and thank you for stopping by!
This is my very first blog hop, so please bear with me!!!
I love summertime! Even though we homeschool, summer is the time when we have more time to play with the kids, and we LOVE roadtrips! We also LOVE planting our garden and watching all the veggies grow! It is so much fun to grow, can or freeze, and then use the veggies all through the year!
Welcome to the School's Out for Summer Blog Hop! You should have come here from DoBea's blog . If you just stopped by, cuz you are one of my followers, or if you just stumbled across my blog, and you would like to see it ALL please go back to Jessica's Blog and check out all the awesome creations!
For my first project, I made a Summery Card, fun for someone to send a friend from school that they won't see during the summer break!
Sorry for the poor photo quality. I had a cortisone injection yesterday morning and it has only seemed to have gotten worse. I love the paper and the flowers so much! Used stickles on the body of the dragonfly and a bit of bling on the flower centers. Sentiment from My Pink Stamper bugs stamp set. I LOVE her stamps!!!! Of course, I am also a bit of a stamp a holic anymore, only because of all the AWESOME new stamps that have come out of late!!!
Please, come back tomorrow for another project for day 2 of the Schools Out for Summer Blog Hop!
Your next stop is Jen R's Blog
And, in case you get lost, here is the complete blog hop line up!
