The painted mailbox.....

Our mailbox needs to be repainted.

Because there is rivalry in NC between NC State and UNC-Chapel Hill ( Wolfpack vs Tarheels ) schools, I root for State and my dh and ds root for the Tarheels.

Whoever won the final play-off round in the College World Series Baseball game between them, the mailbox gets painted their school colors.

Tarheels is Carolina Blue and NC State is Red.

The Tarheels won Thursday.

I am not thrilled that our mailbox is going to be Carolina Blue.  :'(

I see a scrapbook page coming................

Our mailbox has been black for about 15 years!!

Yum.. Homemade peach ice cream.....

Nothing beats homemade ice cream made with fresh peaches. Yum!! We made this after the mega burgers we made for Father's Day 2013.

Mega Burgers for Father's Day...

Why I made the Father's Day card: See my hubby LOVES to cook!

Father's Day Card 2013

My hubby is a great cook. I used this Stampin' Up! stamp set to make this card. Not your typical stamp that you would think of using for Father's Day.

I put 3D effects on the covered dish that sprinkled glitter on it. I let it dry overnight. It really shimmers. The chef's buttons have 3D effects on them, too.

Friends Cards

I borrowed this stamp at a crop and stamped some extra images to use for later.

My friend Nancy brought this stamp set. It is from Stampingbella stamp.

I colored them with Copics.

I made this card to "thank" her.

Birthday Card

House Mouse Stamp colored with Watercolor pencils. I used CB embossing folder on yellow cardstock. Then, I used a brown ink pad and ran it over the "raised" numbers to get the effect that is shown on the card. I love this look.

The stamped image did not have a candle flame. I colored in a flame. Not too shabby. :)

Graduation Card

Colors of the high school are purple, gold and white.

Stamp is House Mouse. I got this stamped image as a RAK. Inside stamped images: Graduation cap and tassel ( The Angel Company ), sentiment ( Stampendous ).

I used watercolor pencil to color the images.

Bazzill cardstock is used.
