Hello Sunday

The Labor Day weekend is winding down and I'm feeling like I need just one more day!  Today I am sharing a card that I'll be giving to one of my coworkers.  I should have put it in the mail but I couldn't find her mailing address so I'll just put it on her desk and she'll get it when she returns.  I used the "For You" julie Nutting cling stamp for the doll and the sentiment, I have mixed feelings about the doll stamps and I'm not sure when I may take on the task of using one again.  I really wanted to give them a try since there just seems to be a lot of rave and fanfare for the doll stamps right now, I have several in my stash but I probably won't be adding anymore!  The doll was colored with color pencils, the pattern paper is WeR Memory Keepers and just a few other items from my stash and the card was done.  I am also sharing the card for the Anything Goes weekly blog challenge over at Scraps of Color.  Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.

One Year

Today marks the first anniversary of the passing of my dear sister Fay.   I have been struggling with how I feel  and what to do.  Of course I still think of her everyday, wish I could talk to her, share with her, cry with her!  There are so many things that I wish were different, too much unsaid and undone.  I think I'll just do as less as possible today, maybe I'll complete a project in her honor!

Gone Fishing

Hello and Happy Sunday, today's project is one that I created for a photo prop!  Yesterday my daughter, one of her BFFs and I along with seven other family members went on an afternoon fishing trip.  My FIL coordinated the fishing trip to celebrate one of nephew's 12th birthday.  Let's just say it will be the first and last fishing trip for me and my daughter.  Overall the day went pretty well but the fish weren't biting the water was rough and my daughter couldn't stomach it.  I made the sign using cuts from the Cricut April Showers and Create a Friend cartridge.

Traveling Gift

It's Thursday which means the start of the weekend is right around the corner.  Our family has a fishing trip planned for Saturday for one of our nephews, this will be a first for me!  I was a participant in a Traveling Gift event over at Scraps of Color, today I am sharing the gift that I received.  I was blessed with this wonderful painting from Sharon Sutton, I was screaming when I opened it, I love it; the picture doesn't really do it justice.  She also included a ATC, the picture even inlcudes hidden bible verses, if you'd like to see more of Sharon's projects head on over to her blog at ,http://seraph1959.blogspot.com/.  Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll come back soon;  have a wonderful Thursday.

Special Moments

Today's LO is one that has taken many twists and turns and I am happy to report the use of more of my stash.  I used paper from a Crate Paper paper pad that I picked up fromTuesday Morning earlier this summer.  I  used Glimmer Mist on the base for some added color, cut the model with the Forever Young cricut cartridge; the embellishments and Thickers have been in my stash forever with the exception of the camera sticker which is Recollections.

I am happy to report that I am able to share this LO for three different challenges.  The sketch inspiration is from Tiare's Desk to Done.   In honor of  both  National Sisters Day and  National Girlfriends Day the blog challenge for week #33 and the monthly creative challenge  over  at Scraps of Color  is to create a project celebrating  these relationships.  I used pictures taken of my recent trip to Raleigh, North Carolina where I met SOC family members for the first time!

Birthday Wishes

August is a busy birthday month for our family so today's card will be going to someone soon!  Today's card was inspired by sketch #302 from Clean & Simple Stamping,  I used embellishments and paper from my scrap pile which doesn't seem to be decreasing.  The stamp is one that I picked up from HL on clearance, the pattern paper came from Provocraft's rob and bob Celebrations  pad. Wishing you and yours a Wonderful week!

A New Address

Hello it's hump day and I'm feeling a little under the weather, hope I can make it through today.  We have tickets to a baseball game tonight so even if I make it through  the work day I can't go home and rest.  Today's post is one that I've been trying to finish for almost a month, it was an emotional task and it seemed I just couldn't get everything together;  the only thing left to do is the journaling as I've got to narrow it down to fit the designated space.  Last month I shared that my DH was giving me an anniversary gift, he replaced my car.  This LO uses pictures of my old car that I took a few weeks after he sold it, I wanted to buy it back, his reply I'm not putting it back on my insurance!  I'm not sure why I love that car so much but it sure was painful letting it go.  I  used paper from a K&Co stack, I cut the title from the cricut Wild Card cartridge, the embellishments include items from Queen & Co., Tim Holtz and American Crafts. Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday.

Summer Fun

Hello and happy Friday, it's raining here and I really want to go back to bed!  I have way too much to do so I must press on!  Today's project is a LO using pictures taken on July 4th when my daughter and I attended a community outreach event at one of the local churches.  I used pattern paper from DCWV year round paper stack, washi tape, foam star stickers, and jellies.  The word summer was cut using the cricut gypsy wanderings  cartridge and I used K&Co epoxy stickers for the word fun.  The sketch inspiration for this LO is  from Tiare's Desk  to Done challenge #41 and will be shared for this week's Anything Goes blog challenge over at Scraps of Color.  Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.
