FMS195 Enjoy


Yay, it’s Saturday!  It’s been beautiful here the last couple of days!  What great weather, it doesn't feel like July at all!  I had a blast making this Freshly Made Sketches card….quick and easy, and a wonderful sketch:
Even though the sketch allows any shape, I knew right away I wanted to use these fun circle DSPs from Schoolhouse:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Enjoy Stampin Up Birthday Card

It also gave me a chance to use the “enjoy” from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit that I finally broke down and got….so cute and FUN!  I diecut it three times in Pacific Point, glued them together and popped them up with skinny little pieces of dimensionals.  The dots from Festival of Trees were a fun addition, stamped in Pool Party, although when I added my sentiments from Endless Birthday Wishes, I realized there were dots in that set too that would have been good to use!  Rhinestones add a little sparkle!  Here’s the inside:


Hope your day is awesome!

We had to drain, clean and refill Cassidy’s pool, so she devised a way to ensure that the hose would not only fill the pool but allow her to play with it as well:


Yes, it’s barbecue tongs…..they very conveniently stand upright while holding the hose.  And she figured this out on her own, although I am not sure John would appreciate her “borrowing” his grill tools to help fill the pool!  She has imagination (and ingenuity), that’s for sure!



  1. Love those bright blue circles! Fun card! And yep the weather has been perfect this week! Love how that little gal thinks!

  2. Although I LOVE your bright & cheery card [as I love all your cards!] I had to chime in today to tell you how much I appreciated Cassidy's idea. I've followed your blog since before she was born and I am thoroughly enjoying watching her grow up; a bonus to your creativity! What in the world are you going to do when she's a teenager and gets [too] annoyed with your taking her pic? lol

    1. Thanks, Kat! She already gets annoyed with me having the camera around as it is!!! But I just keep at it, LOL!

  3. LOL, what a smart girl. So sweet of you to post pictures of Cassidy. Love watching her grow up:)

  4. Cute card. Cassidy is a very smart girl. I bet she had fun.

  5. Great CAS card, love it! LOL, Cassidy is so smart!!!

  6. Be still my polka dot lovin' heart, this is CUTE!! Cute pics of lil' miss smarty pants too!! We are HOT at 91 today and tomorrow...prepare it's probably coming your way!!

  7. Great card - love the rhinestone dots! You've got an engineer in the making there! Encourage that a lot!!!

  8. I just knew you would nail this sketch since you are so good at putting three of anything together! I love how you incorporated the circle theme throughout with the background and the rhinestones!

  9. Your card goes perfectly with Cassidy's blue pool. I love all of the dots and circles and the beautiful blues. It's always good to see you in the gallery at FMS!

  10. This is gorgeous! I love the colours you've used - they look fab against the white background. The addition of the subtle spots in the background is a lovely touch too! Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!
