Tiddly Inks Cat

Happy Friday!!  I can't believe we are over halfway done with August. It seems like the day are long, but the month is flying by. I've been trying to push myself into stamping more and I'm getting a few things made here and there. It usually takes me working on and off for a few days, but that's better than nothing, right? lol I had this cute kitty from Tiddly Inks printed off and I thought she might be fun to color. I made her into a card for the current Tiddly Inks Challenge. I think it is CAS enough?

We had meet the teacher night this week and man! Not only is her teacher awesome, but the classroom is fantastic. It's so big!  I hope it is a better year for her.

Have a great weekend! I figure I'll be busy getting ready for the first day of school on Monday. Yikes!

Teacher Time

It's almost time! Eight more days and school starts. We go on Tuesday to the official meet the teacher at the school. We've had coffee with her and then all the first grade teachers came to a local sno-cone place and all the incoming students were welcome to come and meet them. It was as 6pm, so a great time for sugary treats, right? lol  Anyway, I wanted to get started on my teacher cards to try and build a stash. I played along with the Cupcake Inspirations challenge and the SugarPea Designs challenge.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hang in There

Happy Friday!  I managed a little crafty time today and my poor card looks a lot like our current weather. We need rain, so I can't really complain too much. My garden will be happy.  :)  I used the colors from the Calling All Sistahs challenge. I need to hunt out all my encouragement stamps so I can make up more of those type of cards. There's always people who need a lift!

I've been tired today, so now that I've managed to upload my card I am off to bed to read. Or maybe watch a show. I found the Stephen King Mr. Mercedes show to watch and I'm curious to see if it's as good as the book. I'm assuming no because they never are, but I will give it a go!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Coffee Mouse

Hello. Happy August. :) We are so close to the start of school! I know some places have started already, but Texas always seem to be later. Laila's first day will be the 20th. We did get to meet her new teacher and have coffee with her last week. I LOVE her. She has a completely different outlook than her kindergarten teacher and I think she'll be great for Laila. She got her gifted and talented certification this summer and is a second year teacher who is still excited about her job. So, fingers crossed!! 

On to the card. I found another set that I don't think I've ever inked up. Oops! I won it a long time ago and since it's coffee I had to put it in my stash. It's cute, right??  Perfect for the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge too. :) I love the little mouse.

Her teacher knew she was into Star Wars, so she brought her a little Yoda and a Star Wars coloring book when we had coffee. :) So sweet, right???
