Opps! Where did the time go?

Yep, it slipped right by me. I must say I was distracted the last week with Summer Camp, the final week of school, and then a family get together. Another grand time we shared with my family except J-bird was with her father. I missed her so. I always think it will get better when she goes to stay with him but I still miss the dickens out of her. My Tigger bounces above me as I work on cards or watch TV and I generally shake my head as the floor rattles and booms with her heavy footing. Nothing now. Just quiet. :-( I don't hear the creak of her door when she creeps out to visit and I feel rather sad. I miss hearing her laugh or sing in her room. Yes, I am guilty of sneaking up to the door to get a listen to what she's doing. Does it ever go away? It kinda reminds me of the first time she started to talk or stand in her crib. I can remember crawling on my knees to peek in her room to catch a glimpse. Please tell me others Mom's have done this? I would try to take pictures but she would hear the shutter and immediately stop talking or drop to her knees. Oh how precious children are!

So for today I have two cards to share with you. Regina has been at it again creating some more fabulous digital files for The Cutting Cafe that I want you to see. This is brand spanking new! Like just came out yesterday so pop over and get yourself this adorable Summer Fun printable stamp set . It has 33 images! Cute flip flops, ice cream cones, starfish and more.
I did a card for the latest Card Patterns using a sentiment from this set.
I used Studio Calico papers and Bazzill cardstock, did a little stitching, added lots of pop dots because the For The Luv Art card challenge was to make your card 3-D. This next picture shows it a little better.

Of course I did some embellishing with Foofala and Dress It Up buttons, a Recollections rhinestone, Bazzill rhinestones, and a piece of white grosgrain ribbon.

Next is a really fun card that I again used Summer Fun printable stamp set. The ice cream cone template can be found here. Brianne from For the Luv Art created it for Monday's card challenge.

This card uses some Basic Grey and MME papers, Foofala button, Dollar Store trim, and Bazill rhinestones.

Oh and I totally got a shout out from Scrapbook & Cards Today blog for the father's day card I made Simon. Here's the post. I was pleasantly surprised! Thanks SCT!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!
