Friend's Birthday

Hello! I have so many projects to post, but it seems I don't get them on here as often as I should. On the other hand I don't get to stamp as often as I should either! I am posting this for Marilyn, she will recognize this stamp set. I made this a while back for a stamping friend's birthday. I used the "rock and roll" technique, where I stamped the larger flowers in the Tangerine Tango, and then rolled just the edges in the red to create a two color effect. It would work good with a yellow/orange or pink/red or lt blue/darker get the idea. I would love to see what you do with the idea! Hope it inspires!

Mr. Nibbles

In January, we walked into one of my friend's classrooms, and "surprise" her guinea pig had babies over night! They were so little and cute, mama was very protective of us trying to look at them even from outside the cage! As a result, my daughter was promised one, and we adopted "Mr. Nibbles" .
He is a beautiful animal. He lives in my Kindergarten classroom since we have a Jack Russell Terrier at home. I just call him Nibbles which makes my DD remind me his name is MISTER! He gets excited and jumps for joy when the kids come in the room, and he "talks" a lot by chirping and squeaking! What a character! He loves apples and carrots a lot, and becomes quite the beggar if he sees the refrigerator door open! Stay tuned for cuteness as he grows!

busy winter!

Well, we have had a busy winter here for sure! This is a picture of the sun coming back to the top of the world where we are. I have stamped a lot, and I will post more of those this week!

Hope whoever is watching out there enjoys this picture. We have over 12 hours of light constant now. If you are out there visiting my blog leave a comment so I know someone is watching...
