Happy Fall


Hello and happy rainy Tuesday, the state fair is here so we are guaranteed rain this week!  It never fails and surely puts a damper on the whole event.  I am back today to share a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from Sunday Stamps sketch #136, scraps of paper and embellishments from my stash.  I cut the tree using the CTMH Art Philosophy cricut cartridge.  I used my label maker for the sentiment.    I love clean and simple projects that allow me to use my stash even though it seems like I am not putting a dent in the piles!  Take care and have a wonderful day.

Get Well Soon


Hello and happy Sunday!  The weekend goes by way too fast especially when on Saturday your schedule is booked from the start of the day until you are so tired all you can do is go to bed!  Which means you will be busy on Sunday too.  When I woke up yesterday I had a text from my DH saying he needed four cards, he said he would help but I knew that meant he needed them right away!  I used a sketch from FUSION for inspiration for two of the cards.  When he asks for cards they are usually for his fraternity brothers so I usually use the same colors with a little variation and not too many embellishments.  I used embossing folders and the Simply Sweet cricut cartridge for the sentiment.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful week.

Friday Musings


Hello and happy Friday, it's the weekend!  I am back today to share a birthday card that I made for my cousin Kathina, her birthday was yesterday and of course her card will arrive late!  The sketch inspiration for the card came from Tuesday Morning Sketches,  I used paper from the My Minds Eye Happy Day 6x6 paper pad.  I also use another one of the dies that I ordered from Ebay that came from China, a Spellbinder's die for the scallop circle, a MS punch for the butterflies and a few enamel dots.  I am also sharing this card for challenge #267, use three different pattern papers over at Hiding in my Craft Room and the butterfly challenge over at Use Your Stuff.   Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Happy Fall Yall


Happy Thursday and happy Fall officially in a few hours!  I meant to share yesterday but just didn't get to it, I am coming up on a very busy month so I am having to devote more time to those things. I will be sharing those events on my blog so stay tuned!   Today I am happy to share a project that my daughter helped me complete and she has proudly displayed it on our front door!    It is a scarecrow wreath that was another Maymay Made It inspired project.   I had some stuff in my stash and I purchased the remaining items from Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree and ACMoore.  Our original version used a pipe cleaner for the mouth but I didn't like it so I just decided to draw one with a permanent marker. You can find the scarecrow wreath tutorial here, we made ours last month but waited until today to hang it on our door!  Take care, I hope you'll come back soon.

Happy Birthday Paul



Hello and happy Monday, I survived the weekend!  Today is the 14th birthday for our nephew Paul so I am sharing the card that I made for him, last Monday was his brother's 15th birthday and I forgot so I had to make him a card  too!  The sketch inspiration for this card came from sketch #288 over at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.   I used paper from the Graphics 45 Sport 6x6 paper pad,  a football jelly sicker that has been in my stash forever, a stamped sentiment, a few Queen & Co. Jellies and the card was done.  Than you for your visit, I hope you will come back again soon!

Sunday Musings


Hello Sunday, how goes your weekend, what have you been doing.  As for me I am trying to get this post done before I head out to church, my family and I are worshipping at two different churches today!  Today I am sharing one of the cards that I put together yesterday for the FB card angel group, it will go postal tomorrow to someone being treated for cancer.  I used a WeR Memory Keepers wood grain embossing folder and dies from Crafter's  Companion and Gina Marie; all for the first time.  I decided not to add a sentiment on the front of the card.   I have had a productive crafting weekend but there is more to life than papercrafting!    Take care and have a great week.

Wedding Card


Hello and happy Friday, wishing you and yours a wonderfully blessed weekend.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together last Friday as me and one of my scrapping buddies hung out on google hangout.  I needed a wedding card so I decided to pull out some of the dies that I had purchased recently from Tuesday Morning.  The sketch inspiration came from the WeR Memory Keepers doily heart die packaging, and I also used the banner die set from WeR for the first time!  I cut the heart with my cricut (can't remember which cartridge) and everything else used has been in my stash for a while!
