Wednesday Musings


Wow, where does the time go?  As usual I can't seem to catch up I haven't done a LO in forever!  Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday, we are cleaning up after a really bad storm yesterday.  I am not sure if the weather service said it was a tornado but it was hailing, raining, and the wind blowing very hard lots of damage and power outages.  Thankful that we only lost power for a few hours.  Today I am sharing a mini holiday recipe album that I made as part of a handmade gift for a RAK swap over at Scraps of Color.  I hope the recipient is able to use it as it was a true labor of love, even though it might not look that way.  I am happy to report that I used my Cinch for the first time, it has been sitting in the box forever, it is one of the first releases!  I used chipboard for the covers,  paper from an American Crafts 6x6 paper pad, stickers and Spellbinders dies.  The tutorial instructions came from another video shared by Maymay.  Take care and enjoy your day.

Spirelli Wreath Card


Hello and happy Monday, I have been trying to share on my blog since last week.  So much has been going on, so grateful to still be standing and my heart continues to ache.  Today I am sharing a card that was inspired by a video tutorial shared by Maymay, I was trying to share the video but for some reason I couldn't find the share button!  If you'd like all you need to do is go youtube and search Maymay Made it!  It started off being a little challenging but you just have to take your time, I used baker's twine, ribbon, embossing folder and a stamp for the sentiment.  I really like how this came out so I just might be doing it again!

Christmas in July


My heart is heavy and I mourn with and for my country.  Where does all the time go, I just can't seem to stay focused or catch up.  Today I am sharing the card that I started yesterday and finished this morning.  I used some Basic Grey (Jovial) paper that I picked up on clearance at ACMoore.  I liked the pattern so I didn't want to cover it so for inspiration I used this week's sketch over at  Can You Case it?  I am also sharing this card for the Christmas  challenge over at Scraps of Color.  Thank you for your visit, best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful week.

Thursday Musings


Wow. It seems like forever since I shared; just way too much going to do and just not enough time!  The holiday weekend went by rather quickly and I worked most of the time but I did take some time off on Tuesday to celebrate our anniversary  with my DH.  Today I am sharing another card that I put together using inspiration from challenge  #278 over at Try Stampin on Tuesday.  I used paper from my scrap stash, two different embossing folders, a few gems and a stamped sentiment and the card was done!

Happy Friday

Hello  Friday are you excited and ready for the holiday weekend?  Do you have plans or will you be like me and do whatever?   It is currently raining here and I am about to get dressed for work.   I was up past midnight putting this card together because I wanted to share it for a challenge over at Scraps of Color since I missed the posting deadline for the last challenge.   I am also sharing this card for  challenge #256 - Any Holiday over at Hiding in my Craft Room.  I used some leftover paper from last year's cards along with a stamp that I colored with my Spectrum Noir markers..  Proud of myself for coloring and using a Stampendous stamp for the first time that has been in my stash for several years.  I  finished the card by adding some stickles, sequins and one of my planner stamps for the sentiment!

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a safe and fun holiday.

Thursday Musings


Hello and happy Thursday, what's on your agenda?  I meant to share this card yesterday but I never got around to it so I am sharing it today.  I put this card together for the FB card group using the sketch shared over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I just used more paper from my scrap stash, some Recollections glitter tape, a Sizzix die, a stamped sentiment and some Paper Studio flowers.   Take care and have a wonderful day.

Hello Summer


I know I'm a little late with my start of Summer project  but as life would have it I didn't get to share until now.  I'm back from a fun weekend celebrating family with my father's family, I'm tired so I am looking forward to some much needed downtime this weekend.  Today's card is another card using paper from my scrap stash, the Life's a Beach cricut cartridge to cut the flip flops, my cameo to cut the sentiment, a circle punch and a few K&Co. gems.  I shared this card for the Maymay Made It Summer Fun Challenge over on FB.  Take care and have a wonderful week.
