*oh bother*

I've always loved a good mix and match of patterns and colors. It makes for such a fun, eclectic style. I have a rather large stack of 12x12 papers next to my stamping desk...papers that I've been meaning to use but that have ended up in my hoarded pile of *lovely to look ats*, as I like to call them. Here's a sweet little card I made using a few papers from that mountain sized pile and a few of my Classic Pooh images. Thanks for stopping by!

*Classic Pooh* baby card

"Sometimes a cheering surprise just happens along." Isn't that sentiment perfectly sweet for a baby card? I recently started collecting Classic Pooh stamps. They're a bit hard to find, so my collection is pretty small. So far I've got Pooh at School, Letters from Pooh, Pooh Travels, and two different sets called Pooh-isms. I have no idea how many sets are out there, but I'm keeping my eye out for 'em!

*Classic Pooh* teacher's card

I won an e-bay auction last week for a cute set of Classic Pooh stamps called Pooh at School. I bought them with every intention of giving them to my little girl, Livi, who loves to play school... but after stamping with them today, I think I might just keep them for myself!

Last month, A Muse released a new clear set called *school time*. I added the A+ and the row of abc's from that set to the front of the card. Then I decorated the inside with a sentiment and quote that is also from that set. I made this card for Livi's first grade teacher, Mrs. Kiddoo. I hope she likes it. Thanks for stopping by!

*words to live by*

"You are what you eat, so eat something sweet!" Now that's my kind of thinkin'! I couldn't wait to pair up this sentiment with Mandy and her nine scoops of ice cream. She obviously thinks like me! Except her waist is a whole lot smaller than mine!
