Today is Unity Stamp Company's Hip Hop Hangover. I made this card with USK-201-1 Big Polka Dot Cupcake. I used Walnut distress ink on the edges and the stamped happy birthday stamp. The striped card stock is from Basic Grey, archaic, prehistoric. Tied twice with hemp twine. I really like the soft vintage look. The cupcake is stamped on scrap card stock not sure of brand.

Father's Day

Happy Father's day to all - My dad passed away when I was seven. I don't have a lot of memories of him, but I do hear stories. I wish I was able to grow up with him, I think my world would have been really different. It would been exciting to know him and my wish for him would have been to be on this earth longer than his short 52 years. (The top left picture of him is his graduation in 1938, the top right picture is of him at Indian Lake in Michigan and the lower one is of him in his Army uniform.) God Bless Michael Lambert Ferriter !!

I took this picture a few days ago of one of my dogs Ozzie. He is the sweetest boy ever. He is a rescue dog my son got from a shelter in Iowa back in 2005. He has some health issues, with his back legs, but he is such a lovey. I love the way his face looks in the picture. One of me looking down and his sweet eyes looking up. This is the gentle hopeful look I get everytime I see him and he just makes me happy. I like having my toes sneak in the picture because it reminds me to appreciate those smaller moments that make me smile.

I came home to this on my doorstep. What a wonderful surprise. My fantastic son Brian bought this for me for Mother's day. Just thinking of Boo makes me happy. He lives so far away in San Diego and I miss him lots. I know he is happy and safe living in California, so that brings some comfort, but still tough for me that he is that far away. He has the biggest heart and is so generous. I love him to pieces. Thanks again Boo, every time I use it I will smile and think of you !!

Mini Birthday Banner

I have to get in the habit of posting more often. I made this mini birthday banner and listed it on in Etsy shop I scalloped punch 3" circles from patterned cardstock and used Heidi Swap chipboard letters. The cupcake stamp is from Unity Stamp Co. (Love that place). I think it turned out really sweet.
