Almonds when your class is making you feel a little nutty
Band-Aids for when things get a little rough
Chewing gum to help you stick to it
Crayons to color your day bright and cheerful
Eraser to remind you everyone makes mistakes
Lifesavers for when you’ve had one of those days
Paperclips to hold it all together
Pencil to “write your wrongs”
Rubber band to remind you to be flexible
Shiny penny to remind you that each will shine in his or her
own special way
Starburst to give you a “burst” of energy when you need it
Tissues to wipe away the tears…yours and theirs
Toothpick to help you “pick” out the good qualities in
others and yourself.

The Elements of Style stamp set is not my typical go to set, but I found a new love for vintage a couple years ago, and I really embraced this versatile set.

Here is my card....clean lines and all of the NEW yummy In Colors!! With those adorable surfboards from the Summer Splash Stamp Set it's the perfect summer Birthday card.
I have never made a card for a layout challenge, but today I needed some "MOJO" so I got my weekly email from "MOJO Monday" blog and thought I'd take a crack at it. I turned the card horizontal, but I think it's pretty cute and of course, my simple style. :) Here is the layout:

The flower on this card is one of the 4 that we will be making at the paper flower craft class on July 28th. We will be making this one into a magnet. So cute, huh?! :)

One fun thing I noticed about this card after taking the picture is the reflection of the flash....kind of looks like a little grin. :)

Okay, so I'd like to take full credit for this super cute idea, but I must tell you that Emily from the Jones Design Company gave me the inspiration. She made her button flowers into a bouquet. I made mine into a cute card! Don't you just think it is so cute?! I LOVE the bright and fun colors, too!!

I know we got the "tail end" of one of them, that's how they leave us the pile 'o surprise each day. YUCK! They'll probably be gone soon since it's getting really hot out. I bet they'll be heading north with their little one(s). I can't see in the nest since it's about 12 feet up inside our entryway. I can't wait to see them take their first flight. I'm wondering if they'll be dive bombers like their parents??
