Hello! It's Dare To Get Dirty week at Splitcoaststampers! I usually LOVE this week, and would have loved to host a challenge, etc. but tomorrow is moving day and I am busy trying to get our rental packed up!
Hello and happy Thursday! I'm in a good mood today because we just found out that we will be closing on our new house next Wednesday!!! YAY! I am so ready and really want to get moved before school starts.
I have a card to share with you today that I made using someTaylored Expressions goodies:) I LOVE the Ride the Wave stamp set. It's so perfect for making masculine cards, and so very cool! I stamped the image onto some Fancy Pants Designs Down by the Shore dp, and added the waves using the Ride the Wave Border Die. The "Enjoy" sentiment comes from the Coconut Cove stamp set.
Here are a couple of pictures of my kiddos that I took while we were on vacation last week. We had a blast hiking in the Smoky mountains and tubing on the river:) We even got all of our school shopping done~YAY!
Avery and Carson
My daughter took this one after our 5 mile hike to Abrams Falls. Don't mind the sweat spots LOL!
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Hello! Taylor and Jon have started a wonderful cause called the Share Joy campaign! The Share Joy campaign is an invitation to celebrate the joy of card making and to share that joy with others. The gift of a handmade card can bring a smile to anyone’s face, and we want to bring as many smiles as we can to the faces of people around the world! Please join us in creating and sending handmade cards that will make a difference in the lives of others!
I just love this idea! Taylor and Jon are going to be choosing different charities to send the cards to. To start, they are sending the first batch of cards to hospital chaplains throughout the U.S. They would love your help! Please visit the TE Share Joy page for all the info on how you can be a part of this wonderful campaign! Card making brings me so much joy! I have always been creative, and have tried many different arts and crafts. Once I found card making, I was hooked! I just love bringing images to life with color and accents and I also love seeing the joy on people's faces when I give them my cards:) It makes people feel special when they receive a card that takes so much time and effort. Here is a card that I made for theShare Joy campaign:
