Friday Musings


Hello and happy Friday, the kids are back in school today and I'm looking forward to warmer temps! Today I am sharing a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from card sketch #113 over at Sketch N Scrap.  I used papers from the My Mind's Eye Honey Cake  6x6 pad, some startburst dies and a stamp from Cardz TV  Happy Days set for the sentiment. I even made the little banner using scraps after watching a Xyron video pop up in my feed on FB.   I'll be sharing this card for the Anything Goes Challenge #31 over at Cardz TV and the Super Scraps challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room.  Take care and have a wonderful weekend.

Snow Day

Hello Wednesday, another snow day for the area kids but I came into work.  I was out yesterday for a funeral so I decided to come in today, I plan to work all day unless the weather gets bad.  Today I am sharing a birthday card created using sketch inspiration from Clean & Simple Stamping.  The paper came from the My Mind's Eye A Happy Heart 6x6 paper pad, used a Spellbinder's die, a Prima flower, a brad (which I hadn't used in a long time) and my SLICE to cut the sentiment.  I'm sharing this card for the Anything Goes Challenge #29 over at Cardz TV.  Take care and enjoy your day.

Happy MLK Day


Hello and happy Monday!  It is very cold outside but double digit temps and they are calling for snow on Wednesday.  I'm doing a quick post today, normally I would be off today but I came in because I have to be off tomorrow.  We will do something later in the week to celebrate MLK Day.  Today I am sharing my second LO of 2018 and it uses pictures from one of my daughter's mentoring groups.  Everything used on this LO  has been in my stash for a long time with the exception of the doll that I cut using the Teen Scene cricut cartridge and I tell you putting together the layers can make your head spin!  I'm sharing this LO for the Tic Tac Toe LO challenge over at Soul Scrappers.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a marvelous Monday!

Clean & Simple


Hello and happy rainy Friday, I'm doing a driveby post today as I just need to get on with doing some other things!  As you all know my style of crafting is clean and simple, not a lot of fanfare just document the  memory, put the cards together and keep it moving.  Today I am sharing my second holiday card that I put together using sketch inspiration from Clean and Simple Stamping.  The pattern paper is from Doodlebug Designs (I think) and the wooden trees  are American Craft Bits that I picked up on clearance from ACMoore.  I'm sharing this card for the Anything Goes Challenge #29 over at Cardz TV.  Thank you for your visit, have a wonderful holiday weekend.

Thursday Musings


Hello and happy Thursday, the kids went back to school yesterday and the forecast calls for more mild weather today.  I am still on track with my 2018 crafting challenge which brings me to today's card share.  The plan is to create at least one holiday card per week so I will have my holiday cards done before I need them in December!  For this card I used sketch inspiration from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, some misc. paper scraps from my stash and  the December 25th Cricut cartridge to cut the word JOY.  I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes Challenge #2 over at PDE Linky Party.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll return soon.

Happy Born Day


It's Wednesday and today is my birthday!  So happy and thankfully blessed to celebrate another born day.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together over the weekend using dies from the Spellbinders  Shapeabilities Bordered Sentiment Set along with some Cricut Celebrations paper that has been in my stash for a long time.  The inspiration for this card came right from the packaging since this was my first time using the dies; I picked this set up from TM last Fall.  I'm sharing this card for Something New Challenge #294 over at Use Your Stuff and the Anything Goes Challenge #29 over at Cardz TV.  Thank you for your visit, have a wonderful Wednesday.

Homecoming


Hello and happy Monday, today I am sharing my first LO for 2018.  I used sketch inspiration from sketch #144 over at Sketch N Scrap, the heart pattern paper came from the DCWV High School paper stack, I used Thickers for the title and the Forever Young cricut cartridge for the die cut.  The gem embellishments are from Recollections.  I like how her outfit came together but it was truly a chore pulling it all together after she decided the colors and what she wanted to wear!  I am off to a relatively good start with my challenges even though I am only eight days in.  Take care and stay warm.
