HOOTIN' and Hollerin'...


HAPPY MONDAY, everyone!!! Well...thanks for all your well wishes and words of good luck...they worked! My little squad did an AMAZING job yesterday and Congrats to my Pommie's on your first place trophies!!! YOU ROCKED IT! I am the proudest Coach and Mom right now...what a fun day!

It always helps to have an AMAZING support system...and I have to say that our group of parents are fan-freakin'-tastic! We had the loudest cheering going on yesterday, for sure!


In the spirit of all the HOOTIN and Hollerin' going on yesterday, I thought I'd show you a few cards that I made with the Flyin' By set from The Little Paper Shop! This set is a new October Release and is available right now on the website...in fact, you can earn this set FREE w/ a $50 purchase!

Isn't this little guy just too funny? One of my favorite techniques to use w/ this set is to stamp the owl, then stamp another one on a scratch piece of paper and cut the eyes out.

Using a dimensional, I "pop" up the set of eyes on top of the stamped image of the owl and it really makes his eyes bug out which I think is too funny/cute! The owl also makes a really cute Fall card, I think. Super versatile. In addition, this set also comes with a cute little bird image.

I used both of these cutie pies to make a little set of 4 notecards the other day. This is a great little project that doesn't take long and makes a great gift...something to think about w/ the upcoming holidays, right? I will tell you though, that my Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch bit the dust this past weekend and I'm very upset about it...GRRRRR! I JUST got it, and the handle broke! I am going to try and exchange it but they seem to be sold out everywhere so wish me luck/ with that!
Last but not least, I leave you with a picture of my adorable girl who I couldn't be prouder of. (pay NO attention to the Mom/Coach in the background who is missing almost ALL of her makeup from crying it off LOL! I was moved to tears once or twenty times yesterday!!!) She is the apple of my eye, chip off the old block...put simply, there is no end to the adoration I feel by looking at her. What an awesome mother/daughter experience. I couldn't be happier right now and will have visions of sugar plums or poms or something in my head, I'm sure when it (finally!) hits the pillow tonight! GREAT JOB, CJT POMMIES! I LOVE YOU GUYS!!! WHOOT WHOOT!!!! (get it? lol)

Congrats to you and the girls!! The cards are just so cute and the little owl is adorable. The way you did his eyes. Well, I am going to case the eyes with a different owl!! Oh, on the punch. If you call the 800 number for Martha Stewart on her craft site and tell them what happened and that Wal-Mart is out, I think they will send you one, just like that. If they don't let me know.
