Paper Weaving

Hello and happy cloudy Tuesday, more rain in today's forecast but hopefully nothing like yesterday.  One death and at least five tornadoes touched down in our area yesterday, we had to shelter in place at work for almost two hours.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together after watching one of Nicole Nowoad's videos from  Scrapbook and Cards, she was creating a LO which I plan to do later but I thought I'd try the technique on a card since I had some scraps that I wasn't  ready to toss from a 6x6  paper pad.  I used some TH distress ink to color the base of the card, after I finished the weaving I added a Prima flower to the center, scattered  a few gems and stamped a sentiment.  I really like how this card came out and I hope my cousin enjoys it!  I am sharing it for the Anything Goes challenge #65 over at Cardz TV, challenge #26 over at LTCCB and the September challenge over at Always Happy Birthday.

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

Birthday Princess

Hello and happy Sunday, I started this post some time ago but for some reason I never shared it!  Happy to report we were spared by Forence but praying and thinking about others that weren't so fortunate.  Today's project share is a LO using pictures I took of baby girl the morning of her birthday as she was headed to school.  I used sketch inspiration from an online crop that I participated in last month.  The base sheet is cardstock from either a DCWV or Recollections pad and the patterns papers are from my scrap stash.  I used my Cricut to cut the crown and the word Princess, handcut and put the banner together; everything else has been in my stash for quite sometime.  School has stared and I really need to get on track with her school book.

Thank you for your visit and please come again soon.

Ruff Day

It's Thursday, we are going about our day as usual as the forecast calls for the rain to start this evening.  I am up restless because baby girls needs to be at school by 6:30 and we didn't go to bed until after midnight; oh well that's a story for another day!

Today's  card share is one that I put together using sketch inspiration from challenge #281 over at Atlantic Hearts.    I used another sheet of pattern paper from the Teresa Collins  Urban Market pad, unbranded stitched oval dies, some Recollections epoxy stickers and the Cardz TV Lucky Dog stamp set.  I am sharing this card for challenge #329 - Animals over at Use Your Stuff and the Anything Goes Challenge #64 over at Cardz TV.

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

Hello and happy Monday and Labor Day!  Today's project share is indeed a labor of love as baby girls grows into a young woman it really tugs at my heart!  I used a picture that was taken of us in July as we had decided to dress alike at a family event.

I used sketch inspiration from a grid challenge  shared by Organized and Creative Mom.  I used mostly scraps of paper from my stash,  the Fantastic Fonts, Going Places and the 50 States Cricut cartridges.  The embellishments are from Me & My Big Ideas, Recollections, Amy Tangerine and Jillibean Soup.
I am sharing this LO for the Mother - Daughter  challenge#56 over at Challenge Yourself and the challenge #384 - What Makes You Happy over at  Die Cuttin' Divas.  One thing that makes me happy is documenting my family's history by scrapbooking.

Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a wonderful week.
