Sending You Bear Hugs

Hello crafty pals! 
How has your week been? Hope it's getting warm and starting to feel like summer where you're at? It's super hot here...been in the upper 80's all week! That's sizzlin hot for us Oregonians, lol. We've been out everyday taking advantage and enjoying the weather.

We went to the river this last weekend with our boys and we had a blast...well up until we came across some ugly, creepy crayfish! My boys were having fun swimming and splashing each other until I heard one of them scream "lobster!!". It was hilarious because it did look like a very mini lobster. But it was only about the size of our palm. We couldn't get them to go back into the water after that. Hopefully they will forget about it the next time we go, lol.

I've been working hard to get another card posted but at the same time I've been working on some projects for a guest design position which I can't reveal until July! I was super excited when I was asked to guest design for this particular company, so I can't wait to share with you all in July!


For now, I managed to get a card created that I can share! I seen the Kraftin Kimmie "Let's Go To The Movies" challenge and knew just what I wanted to create!

"Goldilocks and the Three Bears"

I couldn't get my pics to turn out that great on this card...they turned out really yellowish.

Awhile back, I went a little crazy and bought a boat load of Kraftin Kimmie stamps and I'm only now just getting them all mounted and inked up!

I fell in love with this Goldilocks stamp and the adorable little bears! And I love that most of Kimmie's stamps come with little extras, like the little bear off to the side and with sentiments too! I searched through the Kraftin Kimmie store and can't seem to find this may be retired? But you can check out all the stamps HERE!
