Monday Musings


Hello and happy Monday, are you excited and ready for Thanksgiving?  Today I am doing a driveby post as I need to get ready for work  so I can run an errand before I take baby girl to school and go into work.  Today's card is one that I put together usuing sketch inspiration from Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge #238, I didn't realize until now that the link has closed!  The pattern paper is from the Jillibean Soup Saffon Yellow Pepper Soup paper pad and the tulip bunch is a cut from  the Silhouette store.  This card was created and is going postal for someone that submitted a request to the FB card angel group.  Take care and enjoy your holiday week.

Thanksgiving


Hello and happy Sunday, the start of another week.  I meant to share this card yesterday but of course I just didn't have time.  We were out before 9 am and  in and out until well past midnight, I am down to the wire trying to finish and get my cards in the mail by tomorrow.  Today's card uses skerch inspiration from sketch #429 from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I used embossed paper from the Craft Smith Fall pad and the pattern paper from the Pumpkin Spice both hot buys from last year.  The leaf is a Darice die, cut the scallop border with Accent Essentials cricut cartridge and a Hero Arts stamp for the sentiment.  I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes Challenge #21 over at  Cardz TV.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you will come back soon.

Hello and happy Friday, seasonal temps and lots going on as usual.  I'm back today to share a card created for the third Christmas Card challenge over at Soul Scrappers.  The challenge is to add the word  Christmas to your card.  If you're looking for some inspiration and challenges you should visit their site.  I started this card with the sentiment that I pulled from my stash from last year, used more pattern paper from the American Crafts Hot Cocoa paper pad, cut the ornament with the CTMH Artiste cricut cartridge, added some sequins and the card was done.  Thank you for your visit and  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs and Prayers


Hello Thursday, forecast call for seasonal temps in the low 60s today.  I'm back today to share a card that I created recently for someone that suffered the loss of a love one.  I used more paper from the American Crafts Garden Party paper pad, a doily from Studio G, a Hero Arts die and stamp set and some Recollections heart gems. I hope knowing that others are lifting them in prayer provides some comfort. Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll come back again soon.

Just Because


Hello happy Monday, the weekend just isn't long enough.  A busy home and work life makes it hard to have a lot of downtime sometimes.  I am trying to get in the holiday mood but for some reason I haven't felt up to it.  I am back today to share another super simple card that I put together using the November card sketch from Stick it Down.  The pattern paper came from the American Crafts Hot Cocoa 6x6 paper pad and I cut the bow with one of my unbranded dies, stamped the sentiment and this card was done!  Wishing you and yours a wonderful week, hope you will visit again soon.

Merry Christmas



 Happy Saturday, cold outside just doing a quick driveby post.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together using sketch #109 from Sketch N Scrap.  I was lucky enough to be randomly selected to win their monthly prize for one of the cards that I shared last month!  Today's card came together rather nicely as I continue to shop my stash of supplies.  The pattern paper is from Recollections, the  doily from the JoAnns ms sparkle & co line and I cut the tree using my Silhouette cameo.  The sentiment stamp is from the CTMH Artfully Sent cricut bundle; a gift from Cheryl, another one of my scrappin' besties!  I am on a roll so I hope you'll come back again soon.

Friday Musings


Hello and happy Friday, looking forward to some downtime this weekend or rather maybe not.  Next week is homecoming at my daughter's school and we still need to shop.   Oh well such is life we just have to make the best of it.  Today I am sharing a card that I made using inspiration from this month's sketch #342 over at Die Cuttin'  Divas.  I used papers from the Pebbles Garden Party 6x6 paper pad, stamped, heat embossed and cut the flowers using a stamp and die set  that I picked up on clearance from Hobby Lobby sometime ago.  I threw away the packaging but I think it may have been something exclusive to HL by Richard Garay, the founder of Fun Stampers Journey.  A few enamel dots and a stamped sentiment completed this card that will be going postal to one of the FB card angels.  I will also share this card for the Anything Goes Challenge #20 over at Cardz TV.  Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Cards for Kids


Hello Thursday, more cold weather for us.  Today I am sharing some cards that I created for the FB card angel group or rather it was requested by one of its members.   The request was posted last week for kid cards so I spent some time over the weekend putting these 10 signature simple cards together.  I used a of variety papers, stickers, die cut embellishments and stamps for the sentiments.  I like how they came out and I was able to use some stuff from my stash, used the bike die and reindeer stamp for the first time!  Take care and I hope you'll come back again soon.

Little Things


Hello and happy Thursday, I am so looking forward to the weekend.  Warmer temperatures in today's forecast, this weather and my sinuses aren't in agreement.  I am back today sharing another card that I created using another card from the World Card Making Day sketches from Sketch N Scrap.  I didn't finish the card in time so I didn't share it on their page.  I used  mostly paper from my scrap stash, a Cardz TV stamp for the sentiment and leaves cut with the CTMH Aartist Cricut cartridge.  I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes Challenge #18 over at Cardz TV.   Thank you for your visit, take care and have a great day.

Wednesday Wanderings


Hello and happy Wednesday, cool fall temps in our area.  I'm back today sharing the final cards from my One Sheet Wonder project.  The paper came from one of the Michael's hot buy paper pads, stamped two of the sentiments and used my cricut and/SLICE to cut the other three.  The flowers and gems have been in my stash forever, used a punch for the butterflies and my SLICE to cut the embellishment on the bottom right card.  Take care and have a wonderful Wednesday.

Boo


Hello Tuesday and Happy Halloween!  Today I am sharing a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from Paper Play Sketches  and die cuts from Gina Marie and the Mini Monsters cricut cartridge.  I borrowed this cartridge from the school at my job, Halloween is the secretary's favorite holiday, she even takes the whole week off.  The piece of pattern paper is from Pebbles and it was leftover from some cards I made two years ago.  I am sharing this card for the Halloween challenges over at Use Your Stuff and  Always Fun Challenges.   I hope you will visit again soon.

Celebrate


Hello and happy Monday, we had lots of rain yesterday but we have cool temps and clear skies this morning.  I am back today to share a LO created using sketch inspiration from the Double Delight Sketch challenge from Soul Scrappers.  I had these pictures from an impromptu 50th birthday celebration for my husband so I decided to go ahead and scrap them.  The burgundy paper has a faint pattern and it came from some papers that I purchased from Costco some years ago.  I'm thinking I probably should have used a red patter paper instead.  The stripped strip of paper came from some scraps from one of the DCWV stacks.  I used a Heidi Swapp sticker for the title, enamel dots and the balloons were cut using the CTMH Artiste cricut cartridge.  I have mixed feelings about the paper but I'm glad that I finally took the time to document the memory.  Take care and have a marvelous Monday.

Happy Halloween


Hello Saturday, cool temps but sunny outside today.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from Operation Write Home after watching a video from craftwithte last Friday.  I usually don't make Halloween cards but decided to make this one for several challenges.  I used pattern paper for the MS Essentials paper pad, the Mini Monsters cricut cartridge, some Recollections glittered tape and a CTMH stamp for the sentiment.  I am sharing this card for Challenge #340 - Halloween over at  DIe Cuttin' Divas and the Any Holiday Challenge #324 over at  Hiding in My Craft Room.  Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Grateful


Hello and happy Wednesday, another nice Fall day here in our area.  I quickly became bored with the one sheet wonder process but I still plan to share at least five more of the cards that I created using that process.  I usually use sketches for my cards and LOs and I am always looking for ways to use paper scraps and stick to my clean and simple style.  I really need to get my Thanksgiving cards done and some LOs.  Today I am sharing a card that I created for the Fall Fun Crop hosted by Sketch N Scrap on their FB page, I originally hoped to share all of the cards created for that crop together in one post but I'm not sure I will get the last one done.   When putting this card together I used most everything from the Simple Stores Hello Fall kit with the exception of the heart (ruined the one that came with the kit) that I cut with the Beyond Birthdays cricut cartridge and the gems placed in the center of the flowers.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday.

Hello


It's Wednesday afternoon, cool temps outside but warm inside.  I'm back today with another installment of my One Sheet Wonder Cards.  As I mentioned previously I made a total of 20 cards so I still have 10 more to share after today's post.  I didn't add any embellishments with these,  I just added some glimmer mist to the base and added a stamped or die cut sentiment.  I cut the hello with the butterfly using the Lyrical Letters cricut cartridge and I used some gold Smooch to color the butterfly and the other hello die was from Crafter's Companion.  Take care and I hope you'll come back again soon.

Thank You


Hello Monday, it is almost 2:00 in the morning and everyone in the house is awake.  So I decided to share a project that I worked on over the weekend.  One of my friends sent me a video last week with the one of the One Sheet Wonder card templates so I decided to try it.  There are different variations of the same concept on YT.  I used one sheet of  pattern paper, stamps, die cuts and misc. embellishments from my stash.  This project used note cards smaller than the normal A2 size cards, I made twenty cards.  Take care and have a wonderful week.

Hello and happy Friday, nice temps and lots to do as usual.  Today I'm sharing another page from my FIl's journey album.  I used some Amy Tangerine Thickers for the title,  misc.papers and embellishments from my stash.  I used the Going Places cricut cartridge for the family diecut.  I'm sad that Provocraft has decided to discontinue the actual cartridges since that is the only way that I use my cricut machines.  I don't want to have to be connected to the internet all the time, guess I will be using my Silhouette more!  Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll come back again soon.

Monday Musings


Hello Monday, I am doing another drive by post as I haven't been able to play much.  The weekend was spent with my in-laws and their extended family but today I am sharing a picture of my sister and daughter taken after my FIL's service on Saturday, so glad her schedule allowed her to be there with us. Baby got so much attention because she decided to wear that hat, her relatives started calling her queen, so glad she was able to smile and laugh because this journey has been hard on her.   I can't wait until my schedule allows me some time to create as I have some really nice pictures to scrap!  Take care and enjoy the last few days of summer temps!

Thursday Musings


Hello and happy Thursday, one week ago at 5:10 PM my beloved FIL received his wings.  Now you know the emotional journey that our family has been on, he was in hospice/palliative care for 66 days.  He made it to his 79th birthday, our hearts are sad but we rejoice in the fact that he is in a better place now.  Today I am sharing another LO from the journey album that I am working on, I used the finger prints of my FIL, DH and our daughter.  Everything used has been in my stash for a while (with the exception of the prints).  I cut the heart  with my SLICE and the tree is a Darice die.  I have been a little under the weather, busy with arrangements and family so I haven't had a lot of time to play.  Take care and hug your love ones and tell them that you love them.

Composition Books


Hello and happy Wednesday, feeling a little down this week so I haven't felt up to speed.  I'm back today to share two more composition books that I did for my daughter.  I'm still trying to figure out why it was a requirement for them to be covered.  I used more paper from the DCWV Homeroom Stack, stickers from my stash and I used my expression and my cameo for the diecuts.  So proud of baby girl as she continues to sharpen her leadership skills, this is a critical year for her and I'm hoping for amazing things!  Take care and make it a great day.

Happy Birthday


It's Monday and today is my FIL's 79th birthday!  He is currently in hopsice, our family will be going to the hospital for a small celebration this afternoon.  I have a meeting so I won't be able to go with them but I made this banner to hang in his room so I will be going to hang it at lunch time.  I used the Pretty Pennants cricut cartridge for the base, punched the circle and cut the letters with the Cuttin' Up cartridge.  Take care and have a wonderful week.

Wednesday Wanderings



Hello and happy Wednesday, the holiday has really thrown me off my game.  We had cool temps this morning and they are calling for rain this afternoon but sunshine and warm temps for the weekend!  I'm back today to share one of my drive by posts as I feel like my poor blog is being neglected.  I did manage to finish two 8x8 LOs for my MIL's  calendar but I didn't take pictures; maybe I will take pictures the next time I am over her house.  Today's quick project share is an altered composition book that my daughter asked me to do for her last night.  I used papers from the DCWV Homeroom Stack and  the Authentique Curiosity 12x12 pad.   I used one of my unbranded dies to cut the stitched square and used it as the label.  She has already warned me that she'll need more, she starts off by saying she is going to help but never does.  I'm sharing this project for the No Layouts or Cards challenge #278 over at Use Your Stuff.  Take care and have a wonderful Wednesday.

Blank Card Face


Hello and happy Saturday, I am back today to share another card.  I created this card for the blank card face challenge over at Soul Scrappers.   If you are looking for some challenges and inspiration you may want to look at their site; this is my second time creating and sharing a project over at Soul Scrappers.  In case you wondering, a blank face card is a card that doesn't include a sentiment on the card front!  I used papers from the Garden Party 6x6 paper pad from Pebbles, the ribbon and flowers have been in my stash for a very long time.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you will return soon.

Our Hero


Hello and happy Wednesday, hope everyone survived the solar eclipse without  incident.  I've been MIA for about a week, as a matter of fact I meant to share this post yesterday but as life would have it I didn't.  Today I am sharing a LO that has helped ease some of the emotions that my family is going through right now.  The LO uses picture taken  during an awards ceremony at the VA Hospital last month.  The award was presented by the Bon Secours Health System Hospice Team.  My FIL is currently a hospice patient, I am so happy that I was able to document what could be the last time I see his smile.  Cancer sucks and right now it has attacked his brain, he is on the decline.  Our hearts are sad but we are happy for the life he has lived.  All items used on this LO came from my stash!

Hello and happy Monday, the weekend goes by way too fast!  My driveby post today is short and sweet  as I should have scheduled this post when I finished the LO yesterday!  Today I am sharing a LO that I created for my daughter, I'm thinking about framing it and giving it to her BFF as a gift.  I used sketch #288 from Sketches in Thyme for inspiration, random papers and embellishments from my stash.  I'm also sharing this LO for CFC180 -Friendship over at CAS-ual Fridays.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll come back again soon!

Farewell to Summer


Hello Saturday, I am back today to do a driveby post as I need to get some chores done and run some errands.  I was suppose to go to a planner event but it was cancelled so I used my morning to put this card together.   Today I am sharing a card that I put together for the Bye Bye Summer challenge over at  Die Cuttin' Divas.    I pulled out my Recollections watercolor crayons and created the background (sky & water), cut the frame and flamingo with some of my unbranded dies, used a Fiskars punch for the stars and a CTMH stamp for the sentiment.   I used some Craft Sensations pearl finish linen cardstock from the Dollar Tree for the frame and flamingo.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a great day.
