Jolly and Happy


Hello and happy Thursday, another heat advisory today but not as warm as yesterday!  Today I am doing a drive by post sharing a super quick card that I put together using sketch inspiration from Atlantic Hearts sketch #325.  In keeping with the Christmas in July theme I decided to create a card using pattern paper and a cut apart for the sentiment from the Craft Smith Say Freeze 6x6 paper pad gifted to me by one of my scrappin' besties!  I finished the card off by adding a few Queen & Co Jellies.  I'm sharing this card for the Use Your Stuff challenge #367- Masculine.  I hope I have more time to play this weekend!

Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll return soon.

Shadow Box


Hello and happy Tuesday, another hot day here in our area.  I am doing a quick drive by post as I just haven't had time to share.  Sunday we had our daughter's trunk party so I had been really busy preparing for it, I hope to share more soon.  So today I am sharing the shadow box that we did for her graduation memorabilia, this is one of the few crafting projects that she actually helped me do!  This was something that she really wanted to do and I am happy that she was pleased when it was done!  It is heavy too so we need to decide whether we are going to hang it or display it!  I'm sharing this project for the Anything Goes challenge #93 over at Cardz TV and the July LTCCB #36.

Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll return soon.

CIU #178 - Christmas in July


Hello and happy Friday, more seasonal temps in the forecast for our area.  Today I am sharing my latest design project for the Cut it Up challenge blog.  The theme for challenge #178 is Christmas in July and our sponsor is Scrappy Dew.

As much I as I try to step out of my comfort zone it seems as though I can't get away from my clean and simple style of crafting.  When putting this card together, I used the Christmas flower from the sponsor, cut the flower, inked the edges, assembled the layers and added a little glimmer to the center of the flower which is barely visible in the picture.  I used papers from my scrap stash, added the flower with some dimensional adhesive, stamped the sentiment and this card was done!

For more inspiration visit the Cut it Up challenge blog, create your Christmas in July project and share it for a chance to win a prize from Scrappy Dew.

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Last 2 Standing


Wow, where does the time go?  The days seem to go by so fast, so much to do and so little time! Today I am sharing another LO for Baby Girl's high school album, I won't make my goal of having the album completed for her trunk party; maybe by the time she leaves for school next month.  This picture was taken during the culminating event for the Young Adult Police Commissioners, they started out with seventeen students and for whatever reason the year ended with just these two!  The pattern piece of paper  and brads came from the DCWV high school  line, The lettering and wood veneer pieces have been in my stash for a long time and I used the Creative Memories This & That Cricut cartridge to cut the arrow.  I am sharing this project for the Anything Goes challenge #118 over at Always Fun challenges and Cardz TV #93.

Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll return soon.

Independence Day


Hello happy Thursday and 4th of July, more high temps and  pop up storms in today's forecast and rain most of the weekend.  I am up early even though I could be sleeping in, I need to start my chores which  includes going outside to pull some weeds.  Today's project share is a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from Try Stampin on Tuesday challenge #414.  I used more papers from the Pebbles Americana 6x6 paper pad, I found the tag and sentiment in my stash of  cuts  from previous projects, added some rhinestone stars and a bow tied with twine and this card was done!  I am sharing this card for Patriotic challenge #117 over at Always Fun Challenges  and the Anything Goes challenge #92 over at Cardz TV.  Since I waited so late my July 4th cards will sit in my stash until next year!

Thank you for your visit, be safe and enjoy your holiday.

Shine Bright


Hello and happy Sunday, warm and  humid in our area today.  Today's project share is another LO created for my daughter's high school album.  I used some of the pictures taken during one of our photo shoots at the museum and in the park.  I cut the sentiment from a sheet of 12x12 that was gifted to me by another scrapper, added a few miscellaneous embellishments and this LO was done with the exception of the journaling.

Enjoy Your Special Day



I am back to share my second post for the day, I meant to share this card  on yesterday but with everything else going on I didn't have a chance.  When putting this card together I used sketch inspiration from  Atlantic Hearts sketch #322, pattern papers from the Shimelle True Stories 6x6 paper pad, a Bo Bunny stamp for the sentiment and a Crafter's Companion balloon die.  I'm sharing this LO for challenge #426 - Birthday over at Die Cuttin' Divas. and the Anything Goes challenge #92 over at Cardz TV.

Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll come back again soon.
