Aww... We Had 2 Ducks In Our Yard...

I wish I had a picture to show you but this morning as I was taking my yorkie-poo Bella out to go potty there were 2 ducks in our yard. We NEVER have ducks in our yard. It was so weird to see. It was a mamma duck and a daddy duck.

So I ran inside to grab some bread to feed them. Then I thought, shoot...I should have grabbed my camera. So I ran inside to get my camera and by the time I ran back outside they flew away. Next time I will grab my camera first then the We think it must have been all the rain that we got last night and this morning that brought them to our yard. Our yard has so much water in it. Anyway, they were so adorable and beautiful. It has inspired a Ducky Card idea. If I can only find the time to make it

Well, I am back to packing. Oh what NOT!
Talk to ya soon! ~Terri

My New Stampin Up Stamp Order...

So while I was out today I picked up my brand new Stampin' Up "Take A Spin" stamp set with the Game Spinners. If you have not seen this set it is SO adorable and I would recommend getting a set. I got the clear stamps with 2 sets of the game spinner hands. You can chose the wood mounted instead if you prefer.

The themes on these 4 stamps are all different. On one of them is a birthday theme, and around the whole stamp it says "It's Your Birthday It's Your Birthday" repeated. This stamp is square shaped. The inside has 6 different little sections and they say... Blow Out Your Candles, Make A Wish, Play Games, Sing Happy Birthday, Open Your Gifts And Eat Cake. So so cute!!

 The other stamp in this set says "Happy" all around the rounded shaped stamp and then on the inside it has 8 different catagories and they say different things like.. Birthday, Valentines, Wedding, Father's Day, Graduation, Baby, Anniversary, Mother's Day. 
This whole set is really adorable.

Then the second set are both round stamps. The first stamp says different things around the base like... Wonderful, Kind, Generous, Thoughtful, Funny and A Blast. The last stamp has 8 different sections that says things like "Awesome, A+, X-Cellent!, Way To Go, Best Ever, Good Job, You Can Do It, Fantastic"

This set is really cute and you can use it for so many things. If you want to order this set it is called "Take A Spin" and then you will need the "Game Spinners".  For those who have never ordered from Stampin' Up before you will need a demonstrator. If you do not have one you can either go to the Stampin' Up website or I can give you the name of my demonstrator. She was wonderful and saved me alot on shipping. 

So there you have it, I just wanted to share. I will be making cards using these stamps and game spinners soon and will post the pictures.  Have a great night! ~Terri

YAY!! We Found A Property & Have A House To Build!!

Hi guys! Great great news for our family!! So as I have said many many times that we are selling our house and we have been looking for properties all over the place trying to find the perfect one for our family. We just got an email from the builder and have picked out the perfect piece of property and are building the most beautiful house and we are SO excited!! I just wanted to share this with you all. In our new house we are making a My Two Pink Peas Room just for my crafting and card making and I am the most excited over this. Now I just have to pack up all of my crafting supplies
<sniff sniff> and put most of it away. I will still have access to it but it is going to be difficult digging everything out if I want to make a card. It is all worth it though! Lots of pictures to come. This first picture is of just the lot itself before we have done anything. The second picture is of the street. There are only 12 houses in this neighborhood and there will never be more then 12. I love that!! The last picture is of my son Casey and my husband walking the property. These were taken just a few minutes ago. You can see our truck in the little driveway.

As we start building our house I will update you all with pictures of the building process. I just wanted to share this with you all. Busy busy day ahead!! We are so very excited!!
Talk to ya all soon!! ~Terri

Just For You Girly Card...

Today has been a pretty busy day since we are getting ready to put our house on the market. We have only a few days left before it is listed. I have told you all that we are selling our house and because of that I have not been able to make cards like I have been wanting to. So I just made this one tonight real fast. Tomorrow I will put all of the details and how to make it because I have to get to bed. We are having new carpet installed and they are coming early tomorrow morning to measure so I have to get some sleep. But I wanted to at least put the pictures up so you can see it.

Basically, I used the Car Decal cartridge for the little girl and the Just Because cartridge for the card itself. The paper is new paper that I bought a few weeks ago and I will list all of the details tomorrow. So I am off to bed and I will talk to ya all tomorrow sometime.

Thanks for stopping by Two Pink Peas! Have a great night! ~Terri

Spring Time Bunny Card...

This card was made this afternoon and I did not use the cricut at all. For the bunny I used a Sizzix Bunny Die and it also included the little flower. Then I used the Cuttlebug "With Gratitude" flower embossing folder for the blue mat. I absolutely LOVE this embossing folder. If you do not have it yet I would recommend getting one. It is really so darling!!Behind that I used DCWV paper from the Linen Mat Stack.

This card was easy peasy!! And I love those kinds of Just last week I finally bought a sewing machine to use on my cards and scrapbook pages. The last time I used a sewing machine was in the 9th grade in home Surprisingly, I got the hang of it pretty quickly. I have been wanting one for a very long time and I just decided to get one now. I am really glad that I did. Adding real stitches to your cards or projects really add that something special and I love the look! The Spring Time stamp I had in my stash and so I just used that.

This card is a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Then the mats I just cut to fit. I really did not measure this time because I was not sure where I was going with this card. The pink gem on the little pink flower was in a pack that I bought at Michael's awhile ago.

Anyhow, I wanted to get this posted now because we still have so much to do on our house. We are painting, adding new carpet, you know all the stuff you need to do to get ready to sell. Let me tell you that I am pooped and tired. I will be so happy when this whole process is over. I am not one for change!

So I hope you all have a wonderful day today. I will try to work on the other cowboy/cowgirl picture that will go in our kids bathroom later tonight or tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by Two Pink Peas!! Talk to ya all soon! ~Terri

Cowboy, Horses & A Big Red Barn...

So as you all know we are getting our house ready to sell and we are also getting ready to build a brand new house. I wanted to decorate our kids bathroom into something different so I found this really cute cowboy/cowgirl theme but could not find any pictures to go with it. I decided to make 2 pictures to hang in the bathroom to go with the shower curtain and all of the other goodies that I bought. As soon as I am done I will add the finished pictures of the bathroom.

Anyway, I used the Old West Cricut Cartridge and A Child's First Year Cartridge to get all of these images. This was actually the first time that I used the Old West cartridge. I have to say that it is really adorable. I am no where done but wanted to share anyhow since it has been awhile since I added new projects. These 2 pictures will go into white
8 x 10 picture frames and will hang on the wall of the kids bathroom. This is just the first picture and it did not take me long at all. To be honest I am not 100% sure if I am going to use this exact picture or I may just come up with another idea. All I do know is that we have been running around like crazy people trying to find the perfect property to build our new house. Today I think we have narrowed it down. Once I get the bathroom done I will post pictures of the whole thing so you can see how cute it looks. The shower curtain and the rug are so adorable. I was not sure if I was going to just make a big cowboy boot and maybe a cowboy hat or do something more elaborate. Today was the first day that I got to work on it and this is what I came up with....but I am not sure if I am going to keep it or make something else. I guess only time will

It is almost 3am and I have to get my behind to bed. I am so tired. I will talk to you all tomorrow or the next day. Thanks for visiting Two Pink Peas!! I would love to hear all of your comments or suggestions. ~Terri
