  1. Carmen, You've had so many posts lately and I've been trying to get on the computer to comment, but life has just gotten in the way...so I'm doing one big one to make up for not commenting the past couple weeks LOL. I loved your little freezie holders (they are too adorable); I'm a yard sale-aholic; and I loved the flower doodle-beautiful. You are one talented woman. Thanks for sharing the "manly" images with us today. Hope God is blessing you with wonderful days. {Hugs} -Heather G

    1. Lol, well thank you, Heather! You must be much like my friend who yard sales religiously!! She gets some great deals! :)

    2. I just got back from a 2 week trip to Michigan and did a bit of "yard sale-ing" while visiting family. Some great finds. But, I do miss my van (we just switched to a car and I miss the extra room of the van).

    3. Lol...sounds like you do well when garage sale-ing!!

  2. Wow. Carmen you are so generous and these are fantastic. Thanks for sharing them.

  3. Hi Carmen! Thanks so much for the lovely ties freebie.My dad passed away many years ago but I make cards for a community group held in local church,the Dad's will love this for their Father's day cards!

    1. That's really awesome! I used to make cards with seniors in a residence. Lots of prep work, but they enjoyed it. Did you see the cards I made with this stamp? If you're looking for ideas, it's on my Masculine Cards board on Pinterest. https://www.pinterest.com/carmengamble1/masculine-cards/
