New dies

I was so excited when my friend a.k.a the Enabler told me AC Moore finally had new stuff in their craft section! I love being able to use coupons to save some money! I can see I will be visiting there more often until I collect the new stuff I want. I bought the new Sizzix dies, tattered flowers and the flourish one that are designed by Tim Holtz. I cut the flower and stamped with a large background stamp from Hero Arts in Orange Marmalade and distressed with Wild Honey, the flourish is cut then stamped with bundled sage a polka dot background stamp from PTI. The sentiment is from PTI stamped and cut and attached with twine.

My DH was away turkey hunting in VA, so it was just the boys and I Thurs-Sun. I try to make it fun when he goes away. We go to the grocery store and get snacks and fun stuff for dinners, bake cookies and watch movies. I also try to keep the boys busy so they sleep really good too! We went to the South Topsail on Sat., packed a picnic lunch and played all day in the sand and water. We had a blast, this summer will be so much fun I love the beach! Wyatt was most interested in the seaweed and trying to scare the girls next to us! The water was a little too cold for me still, but the boys both seemed to enjoy it!


  1. love the pictures of the boys, looks like fun. I can't imagine who the "enabler" can be and I will be headed there myself. Great card, can't wait to get that die.

  2. What a great idea to use the flourish die for the stem of the flower! Beautiful card, Tanya! And I'm so loving the pictures of your boys!! Their sweet little faces are the best!! Reminds me of when my two boys were younger! Enjoy!! :)
