All the grandkids have always loved playing in the fountain outside the kitchen window at my MIL's place....When we were there in September as my MIL passed on, the youngest kids all held up the tradition - and ended up in the fountain. (One of the kids used to carry buckets of water from the beach over to the fountain and it reminded us of the Sorcerer's Apprentice - soooo cute!) That was 16 years ago though...
For now I thought these pics would be fun to share:
I wish it were warmer here in Seattle but we've got stormy weather today. :(

For Zest Blog's WCMD Challenge - Christmas cards in NON-traditional colors! I chose red, white and blue!
They will be going out for Gina's event to soldiers who may then send them off to their loved ones or special people~
They use basic white (PaperTrey), Riding Hood Red, and a heavy light blue cover stock that I picked up somehwere. The cards need to be relatively simple and somewhat flat. So there you have it!
I HAD to hide it in our house...it would be gone in a flash if not...I've already been found on a couple other spots (one was in the big basket of plastic recycle bags...someone found it too soon)...so now I'm putting candy here. (There's also a stash in my car! LOL)
When you open the 'house', those shelves used to have scrapbooking or stamping stuff...see the top shelf? (Stamps!) Now the candy is hiding on the bottom shelf. I can get 4 or 5 bags of candy in there! The roof top also opens up and there's a bag in there too! Kids don't look there because it normally has stamps -- nothing that they're interested in! :)
It's terribly boring. I photographed it outside because the flash kept going off inside and it has a slightly satiny finish which was really annoying.....
there it is...plain as can be. From Target. Stitched nicely around the edges though ;-)
First is a card for Limelight Paper Crafts - it's a 1/2 done card! LOL That was too easy. The stickles are wet so I am waiting before I put anything else on there. I will add ribbon and a greeting and be done later! :)
Images are Stampin up. Cameo Coral, Mellow Moss and Blush Blossom. There is stippling of pearlized paint behind the butterflies, and lots of dots of Stickles on both panels.
It sure takes long to dry in our humid weather!

Thought it might be easier to post the stuff that is for sale over here on this blog. Right now I've got a lot of May Arts ribbons up because....well, no good reason except that I have a ribbon addiction. What else can I say?
Check them out and let me know if you are interested in anything....eyp963 at msn.com

I have a number of larger background sized stamps that need new homes. Here's the first group:
They are all brand new/ unused except those little holiday greeting ones on the bottom (these are free if you want them with the angel stamp)...
The large stamps are all from Hero Arts.
Large Rose w buds - $9 + 2.25 shipping
Lillies on Grapevine Wreath - $9 + 2.25 shipping
Many Roses Heart Frame - $8 + 2.25 shipping
Angelic Cherubs - $7 + 2.25 shipping (includes the smaller greeting stamps for free - the small stamps have been used).
Let me know if you want any of these pretty wood mounted stamps! They are great with watercolor crayons or colored with Markers, Prisma Pencils, or on heat embossed on vellum (color with markers on the back to make it look like stained glass).
