It's Time for another 30 Second Card! ;)

Remember how I completed my last card in less than five minutes? Do I continue my streak and beat the clock again?

You'll have to watch for yourself! Some of our April stamp sets are featured in this project and you will want to see them in action. :)

Just a note...we are testing a different video player today. Leave me a comment to let me know if you like it, don't like it, etc. Thanks!

On a Personal Note...I "THINK" we have an official name for the new puppy! {Gosh, we've only had her a MONTH!....You'd think we'd have picked it out much sooner!} I'm so sorry to keep you all in suspense!

Uh, oh! It's almost Tax Day! ;)

April 15th is an interesting day around our home. To most, it's just Tax Day. But here, it is my Grandpa's birthday! was almost our oldest daughter's birthday!

Without going into detail {no one wants to hear my birthing story!}, but she should of been born on her Great Grandpa's birthday. Instead, she was born on the 16th. ;)

{I can't believe my daughter will be 17 years old!}

We are getting ready to celebrate the birthdays {we DON'T celebrate Tax Day!}, we also have a Cheer Banquet tomorrow and a cheer comptetion in Las Vegas this weekend! BUSY! :)

I do have a video to share with's a Quick Tip video. And, I LOVE THIS TIP!!!

Gallery Winners! Thanks2You & Slideshow!

I've created this great checklist of things I'm supposed to do each month...yet, I can't seem to find it! :)

Luckily, I was reminded by a wonderful Club Memeber, {LIZ!} that it's time to choose the gallery winners! :)

Each entry into our current stamp gallery is automatically entered to win! We randomly choose two projects a month and the winners win any stamp set of their choice. :)

And the winners are....

This great card was created by Chris H. in IN. I love how she created the flowers using the stem and stamping the graduating flowers on top of the stems! She also combined three stamp sets for this card! Can you figure out the sets she used? ;)

This card was created by Danni in AZ. I love how she stamped the stems in a different color and then used the tiny aga stamp to stamp it on top of the big aga flower. :) AND, she used more than one stamp set! ;)

Chris and Danni, please contact me and let me know which stamp set you would like for your prize!!!

Our gallery is always so incredible, so we create these great slideshows....check it out! It's yummy eye candy! :)

{If you are receiving this as an email update, click here to watch the video.}

I know, I know...I haven't announced the puppy name would not believe the discussions we have had around our home about the name! I think I've finally decided...more info soon!

Big hugs,

{Happy} Easter!

Easter is a very special time around our home. After dyeing eggs and doing an egg hunt, we spend more time on the real reason for Easter. :)

We'll go to church and then spend quality time with my parents, aunt, and my 93 year old grandpa. :) {My brother and sis-in-law just landed in London for a week, so we won't be seeing them this year.}

Since I won't be on the computer tomorrow, I thought I would share these two great cards with you. Both are designed by Design Team Member Jeanne Streiff. {Jeanne is also our DT coordinator} :)

The happy2beCircles Stamp Set is a HIT!

Wow! You stampers sure know how to keep us busy! We had tons of new Club sign ups today as well as regular orders AND then on top of that, we mailed all the current Club orders...whew...I'm tired! ;)

Since Easter is just around the corner....{Yikes! I need to get stamping!} I thought I'd share this adorable card by Design Team Member, Laura Williams.

"Just For You"
By Laura Williams

A Note from Laura: This card is about half the size of a regular card. The small size is perfect to highlight the sweet Easter eggs in the Eggs4Easter set! The sentiment, "just for you", came from HappyBirthday2You. I just love this bright color combo, so I kept the design of this card pretty simple to let the bold colors and sweet stamps remain the focus.

(Supplies: stamps - Eggs4Easter and HappyBirthday2You sets, cardstock, ink - Close To My Heart, button - Papertrey Ink, rickrack - Wrights)

Isn't this card adorable?!?

Well, I better sign off...more packing to do! :)
