Pre-Summer Madness

WOW, long time between posts! I really dislike this time of year, it seems like we are just so busy! Im a devoted 'soccer mom' who's son just had end of year tournaments and parties followed by tons of tryouts for the next level teams and meetings for said teams. Plus my little dancer just had her recital this week and all my kids are working on end of year projects. I cant help thinking that school cant end soon enough but I know it wont help, lol. We will just move on to bored children that need entertained, summer day camps, more soccer practice, swimming lessons and vacation! *grin* You gotta just roll with it I guess!

I do however, have some fun things to share with you today...first of all a belated CONGRATULATIONS to Becky Fidelman who is the winner of this month's blog candy posted over on Holly's blog. She will soon be getting her four free new release sets in the mail!

Also, I took some time to make a card yesterday. I hope not to offend anyone but this idea has been brewing in my head ever since I drew the image.



I REALLY wanted to put a sentiment in the set like the one I wrote on my card but I chickened out! LOL I recognized that not everyone has my sense of humor. *grin* I do hope you get a kick out of it though...my 10 yr old son saw it and just took it at face value, with no idea it was a 'tongue in cheek' sentiment.
And lastly, I've been working really hard to bring you something fun and different next month, though we may end up getting it out a bit later than mid-June, like I had planned. Hopefully, you will consider it worth the wait. I'll be sure to update you as soon as I am more sure of a release schedule.
Have a great weekend ya'll!

Bwahahaha! Love the sentiment Kristin! You know if you did include it if someone found it offensive (and WHY for goodness sake?!) they could just toss that one stamp.

Oh, Kristin- I totally wish you had put this sentiment in the set. We need a slightly "naughty" set.
