Happy Monday with a Later Gator!

Hello! The past weekend flew by...that happens a lot lately! I spent some fun and productive time shopping with my sister and Paige to help get Paige off to a great start in her own place in Manhattan! Wahooo! Then I participated in my very first scrapbook yard sale as a seller instead of a buyer! Great to spend some time with Fabre and move some of my neglected supplies to someone who may use them more! And I only spent $10 buying new stamps! I made some $ and I cleared out some supplies from my overstock stash so I am very happy with the experience!

This week's sketch at OWH is by Jan! I love her cards and I also love her soaps! She makes the most luxurious soaps- I feel very pampered every day for a few minutes; the scents are fabulous and I love how my skin feels! She has a pretty extensive selection of soap-check it out and visit her blog for her cards too!

I made my card with awesome stamps by Paper Smooches-purchased with a gift card I won from Sybrina at the VCMP! Thanks Sybrina- I love PS and it was fun to pick out the stamps!
I tried to make this card more gender neutral so it can be sent to anyone! I had to add some googley eyes for a bit of fun!

And I know you have been just waiting to see another of Kelly's cards....she made 4 versions of this Inky Antics snowman- so very cute and I love her patterned papers together! And look how is he is tossing the snowball sentiment....and her coloring-- my photography does not do it justice! Fabre- don't be sad- we will all be together in November to create! Just around the corner! LOL

And while you are checking out some cards- head over to for this week's challenge- dies! There are a lot of inspiring entries this week! 

And are you almost ready??? This weekend is World Card Making Day! Wahooo! Operation Write Home is having a bloghop-- this one will be huge-- with lots of participants sharing cards. 


Have a wonderful week and get ready to craft on!
Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Adding googly eyes to your Gatorade is a great idea - he is too cute!

  2. Diane, you did a great job with this gender neutral card. I find it hard to come up with something that is neutral. Love the googly eye. Enjoy your week.

  3. A scrapbook yard sale sounds like a ton of fun! I have a bunch of stuff I'd love to see go to another home who would actually use it! LOL! Diane, your cards are fabulous as always! That gator is one of my favorite PS images and that snowman is just as cute as can be!

  4. Fun. The googlies are perfect! I was trying to figure out the sentiment.

  5. I AM excited - only a few short weeks!!! Love those cards as always and so proud of you for the de-stash!

  6. I love your later gator card! The papers are wonderful and who doesn't love wiggle eyes!!


I appreciate your comments and feedback on my posts! Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
