you make me happy...


I just can't seem to get enough of the Dear Lizzie Neapolitan Collection:


I teamed up the paper with the stickers and topped it off with some Peapod by The Twinery.

Check out Paper Issues for American Crafts/Dear Lizzie goodness!


Remember to use Amy12 for 20% off today and everyday!

I was inspired by the current retro sketch:


Gotta tell you, spent last weekend in Montana...long road trip but was there to celebrate Darin's Dad and Uncle's birthday {twins!}...His family is so wonderful and down-to-earth...lotsa story telling:)  I was going to drive to Missoula {80 miles} but was good and decided that I have too much crafty stuff right now and that I have to use what I have {patting myself on the back for that...}.

  3. Do you ever listen to Miranda Lambert? Mentioning Missoula made me think of 'Dry Town'...and giggle ;)
    Pat on the back at not shopping- I am not that disciplined!

  17. Such a fun card, Amy, love the green you used, you said green was a favorite! Definite restraint, not going to Missoula, but not driving 80 more miles would have been the reason for me! Hope your weekend was fun. Have a wonderful day.

  18. You do such amazing things with the Dear Lizzie, Amy, so don't stop! I LOVE your card! Such a happy mix of polka dots and checks. Love the flowers and twine tie, too.
    How fun that you got to celebrate with your hubby's dad and uncle over the weekend. Sounds like a super fun time. And good for you for staying away from the crafty store. :)
