Curtain Fold Christmas Card

Hello and happy Saturday, here it is almost 4:00 in the morning and I am wide awake.  This is crazy the one morning I can sleep in I am awake so I decided to blog!  Today I am sharing a card that may get tossed as it is one that I have mixed feelings about the end result.  I think it is the colors that I used, anyway the inspiration for this card came from another Maymay video tutorial and it is my last Christmas in July card for this year.  I am sharing this card for challenge #260 over at Hiding in my Craft Room.   I have to get back to using my stash because recently I have been adding to my stash which is not good.  Take care and enjoy your weekend.

Happy 90th

It's Thursday and it is going to be another scorcher!  Looking forward to the weekend, no plans just hope I can find some time to work on some LOs or rather start the process.  I also finally hope I can unbox my new toy and give it a try; I have way too much stuff.  Today I am sharing a birthday card that I put together for the FB card angel group.  It took a few turns before I was ready to call it done, I used Spellbinder dies, sequins and pop dots.  I also used the Something to Celebrate and the Days and Dates cricut cartridges so I am sharing this card for the birthday challenge over at Bitten by the Bug2. 

Take care.

Hello and happy Tuesday, still can't find the time to play, the warm temperatures aren't helping.   I have been going through some very old stuff trying to decide if I am going to keep it or not and I still have a ways to go!  I am back today to share a card that I put together using a tag that I received in a swap in 2011, the card came together quite nicely since I had a focal point.  It is one of those projects that look better in person! I will be sharing this card for the summer challenge over at Scraps of Color.  Another clean and simple card using my stash about to go postal soon.

Take care, stay cool and remember to always take the high road!

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.
