Apple of My Pi…

hawkins_jill_apple pi_Is it wrong when you crack yourself up? Nah… ๐Ÿ™‚ “If you can’t laugh at yourself…”

I so enjoy a good play on words…

Here’s the card I was fortunate to have selected & published in the September Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Issue. These magazines are oozing with inspiration and (a lot of) talent ๐Ÿ™‚ Go check it out!

This card has a little bit of several stamp sets–which makes it that much more fun.

Enjoy the last two days of “summer”!

Thank you for popping by…

I just had to get this sentiment out of my head! …and I enjoy these ‘geeky’ card types ๐Ÿ™‚

I really dig the cards talented designers made for the September PC&S Issue. I’m telling you, people are so darn creative! If you haven’t seen an issue of PC&S lately, check it out–you will be wow’d! I was even lucky enough to have a card selected for the issue as well. Check it out here: Apple of my Pi. Definitely one of my favs! I do love a good play on words/pun. ๐Ÿ™‚

Once again, a pretty literal take on the inspiration photo–I guess that’s my current trend ๐Ÿ™‚

I liked this card before adding the hearts, but I had to include a little love on this card. This card is also far from perfect, but perfect is not handmade ๐Ÿ˜‰

…AND a HUGE THANK YOU shout out to Teri Anderson for sharing this awesome TT sentiment set (& many others) with me–so kind and generous….her kindness thrills me to no end! Teri has a uber talented crafty mind…I just dig her style so. ๐Ÿ™‚
