Hello and happy Sunday, a little under the weather today but I must press on.  There always seem to be more to do than time,; so much going on and I am certainly not in a holiday mood.   Although I have spent countless hours watching Hallmark movies there are just circumstances that are weighing heavy on my heart right now.   Today I am sharing another card inspired by a video that I watched on You Tube, although I just watched it yesterday it is was shared five years ago!  I used paper from my scrap stash, a Cuttlebug folder, stickles. some Recollections twine and three different  cricut cartridges.  The placement of the bulls are a little off but I do like the look of the card!  Take care and enjoy your week.

Thursday Wanderings

Hello and happy Thursday, thankful for another day.  I am back today to share another card that I put together after watching Mary's video from Cardz TV for card #2 of her 2016 12 Days of Christmas Series. I used Mary card sketch #15 for inspiration.  I used Joys of the Season and  CTMH Artiste cricut cartridges, a wood grain embossing folder and distress ink.  I felt like the wreath needed something else so I added some glimmer mist which you can't see in the picture. I am so happy that I am I just might get my holiday cards in the mail early this year!  Take care and I hope you'll come back again soon.

I am sharing this card for the following challenges:
Bitten by the Bug2 - Christmas Wreath
Cardz TV - Anything Goes Designer's Challenge #5
Use Your Stuff - Christmas Card or Scrapbook Page

Memory Captured

Hello Wednesday, rain and nice temps in today's forecast.  Today I am back to share a LO that I put together for our daughter's album using this month's sketch#117 from Sketch~N~Scrap for inspiration.  The pattern paper used for the base of the LO came from the DCWV Grade School paper pad, most everything else used has been in my stash for a while with the exception of the camera and gem embellishments.  Our daughter is a Delta Gem, which is a girl's mentoring group for the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, these pictures were taken during a service project earlier this year where they picked up trash on the street adopted by the sorority.  Take care and have a wonderful Wednesday.

Merry & Bright

Hello Tuesday, showers and warm temps in our area today.  Prayers for the Ohio State community and the residents of Gaitlinburg, Tennessee, so sad.  I am back today to share another card that I put together last night using sketch inspiration from sketch #141 over at Can You Case It?  I used paper from a Craft Smith 6x6 paper pad that I picked up in Michaels last year.  The stamp is one of my recent TM clearance purchases and the bling has been in my stash forever.  I like the simplicity of the sketch and the card,  I am now halfway to my total for my 2016 holiday cards.  I am also sharing this for sketch #277 - Any Holiday challenge over at Hiding in My Craft Room.  Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll stop by again soon.

Altered Index Card

Hello Monday, I am back today to share an altered index card that I did for a You Tube challenge.  I don't have a YT channel but I frequent if for inspiration and challenges so I decided to do this one offered by Ethnic Green Living.  The only stipulation was to use the colors green, aqua, pink, and gold, the base of the index card is green in the picture looks more yellow but it is a shade of light green.  Everything used on the card came from my stash as I am back to spending only what I need as I have to get this arsenal of supplies down as I have become a borderline hoarder.  I even donated some crafty stuff over the holidays as I'm sure there will be more donations soon as I attempt to organize and use more stuff.  I am also sharing this project for the Challenge #148 - Anything but a card over at PDE Linky Party.  Take care and have a wonderful week.

Back To School

Hello Saturday, I trust that you had a wonderful holiday and have started to get back into your routines.  My holiday was very low key without a lot of fanfare as I needed the downtime.  I didn't do any Black Friday shopping either, I went to just two stores looking for my daughter's homecoming dress or rather pants this time.  She was not with me so I was done in about an hour!  Today I am sharing one of the LOs that finished with the last few days, it uses pictures taken as we were leaving home on the first day of school in September. on the first day of school. I used pattern paper from the DCWV Homeroom paper stack along with other paper and embellishments from my stash.  So happy to have another LO done.
