College Tour




It's Sunday and I feel like I need a nap!  I came in from church, had a snack, put a load of clothes in the washer and added some journaling to a LO.  Yes, a LO is what I am sharing today, it has been a long time, nothing fancy but another picture scrapped.  In April my daughter went to North Carolina with the Delata Gems to visit North Carolina A&T and UNC Greensboro so I scrapped their group picture. Everything used for this LO has been in my stash for a while to include the pattern paper from the Colorbok Old Glory paper pad, the 50 states and CTMH Artiste cricut cartridges, a sticker and some rhinestone stars.  I still need to add names and it will be done, the picture doesn't look too good and the gold writing on the map doesn't show up well.  Now I'm thinking I might need to redo this whole LO.

Thank you for your visit, I hope you will come back soon.  Wishing you and yours a wonderful week!

Hello Friday


Hello and happy Friday, it's weekend!  Today I am sharing another card that I put together for one of the request on the FB group.  Although I like how the card  came out, this is not how I envisioned it when I started.  I finally used some of the washi tape that has been in my stash for a while along with a Hero Arts stamp set that I just had to have after seeing a project that someone else created using it.  Take care and have a wonderful weekend.

Wednesday Wanderings


Wow, this month is almost over!  August and September are busy birthday months for our family and of course I haven't finished my cards.  I really need to step up my game and put together some cards so they will be ready when I need them.  Today I am sharing a birthday card that I made for our nephew, his birthday is next Tuesday, he and my BIL both were born on August 23.  Sketch inspiration for this card came from challenge #283 over at Try Stamping on Tuesday.   I used paper from a Gtaphics 45 6x6 Sports paper pad, one of my recent purchases fromTM along with a die and stamp from Crafter's Companion.  Everything else used has been in my stash for sometime!  Thank you for stopping by, I hope you will stop by again soon.

Monday Musings


Hello Monday, it has been well over a week since I last shared.  Lots going on, not enough hours in a day but I have managed to put some cards together for the FB card group one of which I am sharing today.  I am back in spend less, create more mode as I have been spending way too much lately.  I can't believe I was running around to all the local Tuesday Mornings picking up more stuff to add to my stash.  I even had the nerve to call the inquiry line trying to locate an item, just plain foolishness! Oh well back to the card I'm sharing, the pattern paper is from an K&Co mat pad that has been in my stash forever, used a Darice die to cut the flowers, a MS punch for the butterflies and some pearls from my stash have yet to open the new goodies.  Take care and have a wonderful week.

Saturday Musings


It has been a busy week with lots of twists and turns so there's still much to be done during these two days off work.  I have been in training at work so that means I have been away from my desk.  My daughter spent the week volunteering at her school for new student orientation in addition to finishing up her conditioning training for volleyball.  Today I am sharing  a card that I put together using some scraps that I had left from my holiday cards last year.   My paper scraps really don't seem to be moving, I really need to devote some time to organizing and using it!  Oh well this clean and simple card came from the  last year's holiday scraps!    Take care and have a wonderful weekend.

Get Well Soon


Hello Thursday, looking forward to the weekend hoping to get in some major play time.  Today I am sharing another card that I made for the FB card angel group.  I even used some watercolor crayons for the background, I picked them up during one of my Michaels clearance hauls.  Proud of myself that I didn't let them sit around unopened/unused for a long time.   I also used some Spellbinders mixed media paper, a Sizzix die and  a MS punch.  This card has already gone postal and I am all current with the card group requests so now I need to get busy on some other projects.

Take care and I hope you will come back soon.

Happy Birthday Felisa


Today is my friend Felisa's birthday and this is the card  that I made for her.  I sure hope she gets it as I asked someone that works at the post office to mail it but she had a family crisis so I didn't want to ask her if whether she mailed it or not (didn't want to seem insensitive).  I hate that I waited until the last minute and had to ask someone else to mail the card.  I created this card using the Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Flourish Scroll and. a K&Co Studio112 flower die; I received the flower die cut as part of a RAK.  Nevertheless I know that she'll have a wonderful birthday because she is blessed and highly favored.

Take care, stay cool and have a terrific Tuesday.
