Hello! Thanks for stopping by today my friends! Did you enjoy the Blog Hop yesterday? I have to say that your comments made my day!! I was feeling so inadequate comparing my stuff to the other DT girls...and your comments were so kind. I really appreciate it! I hope that you will join in and make a sticky note holder/ box. It was pretty easy!

Well, I am embarrassed to say that I am just now posting my own card for the 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge this week! I made this Wednesday night, but by the time I was done and finished posting the challenge post it was 3:30 am and I was wiped. I figured that I'd just post it on Thursday AM....but Maeve had other plans on how my morning was going to go. And I was too tired to have a stand off with her. However, we did get some good "nuggle" time in. She is suddenly crazy to snuggle all the time. And how can I not comply when she is so desperately saying "Please Mommy, nuggle! Please Mommy!" you'd think her very existence depended on it. We also got in quite a few games of "this little piggy went to the market...this little piggy....." and quite a bit of singing, including the all time favorite "5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed!" So as you can see, there was little time for posting. :P I hope that you forgive me. I am pretty sure that Maeve is our last "baby"...so I am really trying to enjoy and savor each stage.
Yesterday we were posting for the Magnolia-Licious Blog Hop...so that is why I am just posting this today. This is my male graduation card that uses brads for my challenge. I used Graduation Riley and the cap is from the Graduation Hanna Set. I used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch for my layout.

I am going to a stamp "festival" in the western part of the state today with my best stamping gal pals, Kristen, Pia, Mary and Peggy. I hope its good! But not too good! I can't afford for it to be too good! LOL! I think we will also go to the Yankee Candle flagship store. The "birth place of Yankee Candles". It's Christmas all year long there. I have only been once, but that's what I remember. And of course the smell.
I'll let you know if I find anything good at the Stamp Festival!! I hope that your weekend weather is expected to be as lovely as ours is!


Have a Splendiferous Satuday!

Just ran across your blog - you have the cutest projects! Those "Three Clovers" are adorable!

I just received a booklet/order magazine about stamping and it is nice to have a site to refer to for ideas.

Worth the wait. Riley looks so scholarly (is that a word?) in his Graduation robe. Fantastic card.
Love hearing about Maeve - I bet she is just adorable.
