GRUFFIES!!!!!!!!!

BLOG CANDY GIVE-AWAY...............SCROLL DOWN TO ENTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(You all are blowing me away with the response to this blog candy!! Thanks so much to all who've linked me!!)







So you all know how I just adore my House Mousies.............well, the same company now makes these adorable little bears called Gruffies!!!!! They're so darn precious!!! So these are two different cards I made for a recent swap! I'm getting burned out on all the swaps I signed up for and will be taking a break from them so I can just STAMP TO ENJOY!!!! LOL I have to go a littler simpler than I really want to as I had to make 12 cards!! So I do think they're cute........but just not completely as blinged up as I'd like!! LOL


DH and I are headed into town........it's 40 minutes one-way now for the big grocery and wally and hobby lobby trips!! But we got a second fridge and it's up and running, so we'll be able to realllllllllllly stock up and make our trips to town count!!! And..................SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH............I think we're gonna look for an ATV.........we've promised DS one for a while now that when we moved we'd get him one. But DH is very, very thorough and looks at consumer reports, etc and so takes a bit of time!! LOL But he's a smart man..........so I have to keep learning patience!! Actually, an ATV is a necessity up here with all the wood chopping and hauling we need to do before winter. And DH is getting a small blade to put on it so it can double as a mini snow plow!! I think our 15 y.o. son will be THRILLED to do snow removal this winter!!!! LOL

Anyway.............I'll be back by tonite to play in the first VSN Mini challenge on SCS!!

~ Have A Creative Day! ~

  1. These are so adorable!! I especially love the Truffles one, that looks like me a few months back!! LOL!! I didn't know there was a VSN, have fun!!

    Any idea why I can't subscribe to your blog. I can subscribe to all the other ones, but I never get a confirmation e-mail for yours!! Has anyone else mentioned this problem!! I want to be up to the minute. LOL!

    I hope you get the 4 wheeler, too much fun, especially after it rains and there is all the mud and the puddles!!

  3. Awwww...they are adorable! I swear, I "need" me some copics or prismacolors or something to color these cutie patooties (then I'd have an excuse to buy 'em, lol). I just read Gina's entry about the Koh-i-noors and they look loads of fun, too!
    I love hearing about your new house. It really sounds like heaven on earth. Enjoy, you deserve it!! Hugs!!!!

  5. These cards are adorable. I just might love this little bear more that I love Riley the Moose. I love this little guy playing the piano and am going to have to figure out how to get one!!!! Have fun shopping for the ATV. Joan

  8. Lee, these are soooo adorable! Love how you made these cards! Griffues are sure cute stamps. And I can relate to the truffle bear too - still!

    I was wondering what an ATV was - I thought it might be a new form of technology I hadn't heard of yet, then I saw the bit about the snow plough - LoL! Not much call for snow ploughs in most of dry, hot Australia! Lol again!! I kinda figured out what an ATV might be now though - he he he.

    I just noticed you have an email subscription feed thingy so am off to try to sign up for that. I will like getting notified about when you have added a new post.

    Have a great Sunday!

  9. Lee, I just got advised by FeedBlitz that there is something wrong with your subscription widget. They said to tell you that you need to redo it. Does that make sense? I couldn't subscribe, anyway. :-(

  10. Did you return from the trip to the food store and Hobby Lobby? My dream is to be locked in a Hobby Lobby store, overnight. I keep sending emails asking them to build a store near me.

    Did you find any new stamping supplies you absolutely had to own?
