Worlds Best Father


Hello and happy Friday, I think we just might get away with no rain today.   Today I am sharing my first Father's Day card for the year, I need to step it up a bit so I can get them done and mailed on time.   I am super excited because I made the card using the CTMH Artfully Sent cricut cartridge which was recently gifted to me by one of my scrappin' BFFs.  I am so thankful for the kindness and generosity of my friends.  The inspiration for wanting to make this card came after I watched a video from Joy over at Obsessed with Scrapbooking earlier this week.  I definitely need some more practice using this cartridge, The manual says you can cut the card at a size 7 but I couldn't so I cut it at 6.75.  I only have the Expression because I prefer  cutting directly from the cartridge.  I am sharing this card for the masculine challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room.  Take care and enjoy your weekend.

Whatever Wednesday


Hello and welcome, it has been a while since I had a whatever Wednesday post!  More rain and cooler temps again today.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together using this week's sketch from Mojo Monday.  I created this card using  scraps of paper from my stash, the pattern paper came from the My Mind's Eye Happy Day 6x6 paper pad.  The stitched circle die  with the sentiment is another die from China, I added some party pink glimmer mist to the card base, added a few sequins and the card was done.  I am still shopping my stash, day 24 of no craft shopping.  Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful Wednesday.

Monday Musings


Hello and happy Monday, it is cloudy and rainy here.  I don't feel like working, I'd rather be in the bed with the covers pulled over my head!  My daughter left for her minimester this morning and of course we were late leaving  home because we were up late last night finishing up some last minute packing.  Today's card is one that I created using some of the unbranded dies ordered from China, they were gifted to me by one of my scrappin' BFFs that ordered duplicates.   I just cut the top layer with the die three times, stamped the sentiment and added some colored sticker dots, colored the card base under the cutouts  with TH distress inks and this card was done.   I'm sharing this card for the Cardz TV Mailbox Smiles Anything Goes Challenge #2.  Take care, I hope you'll come back again soon.

Hello Wednesday, I started this post yesterday but never finished it so I am sharing it today.  Another cool day, we were out late last night so I am not ready to get my day started.

Sunday Musings


Hello and happy Sunday, I meant to post yesterday but time got away from me.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from challenge #218 from (CAS(E).  I really like this sketch so I made two cards using paper from my scrap stash, on this card I stamped a sentiment and added a few gems.  I think it looks better in person,  it was cloudy outside when the picture was taken so it isn't as crisp.  Thank you for your visit, best wishes to you and yours for a wonderfully blessed week.

Happy Mother's Day


Hello Thursday, can't believe how fast this week has flown by!  I'm back today to share my very first Mother's Day for this year and since it is only a few weeks away I really need to step up my game and crank out some cards.  Today's super simple but cute card was created using Mary's sketch #17 (I've used this sketch before) from Cardz TV.   The pattern paper is from the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook 6x6 paper pad, the other papers came from a Momenta pad, both have been in my stash for a while.  The focal point of this card for me is the hearts which symbolizes the love a mother has for her children.  A few epoxy heart stickers and a stamped sentiment completes this card.  Thank you for your visit and hope you'll come back soon.

Sunburst Card


Hello and happy Easter Monday, I hope that you had a wonderfully blessed day celebrating the resurrection of our savior.  I am definitely tired as I went to my parents and helped my mom and had a long visit with one of my friends and didn't get home until after 11 pm.  Today I am sharing a sunburst card that I created using a video shared by Joy from Obsessed with Scrapbooking.  I like how it came out but I could use a little more practice on the technique.  Take care and have a wonderful week.

Happy Sibling Day


Hello and happy Monday, I feel like it has been forever since I shared on my blog!  I have had a very busy last few days so no time for crafting but I did manage to spend some time with family, friends and associates.  Today I am sharing a picture taken of me and my youngest sister taken on Thursday after my uncle's funeral.  It's just the two of us now and sometimes my heart really longs and aches to chat with my oldest sister.  I know that she is looking down and rooting for us as we weather the storms of everyday life.  I am thankful for the time we did have with her.  Take care, have a good day and don't forget to let your family know how you feel about them and cherish the time you have with them.

From the Heart


Hello Thursday, the forecast calls for some bad weather.  Today I am making a turnaround road trip home.  It has been over a week since my uncle (one of my father's brothers) transitioned from earth to his heavenly home and today the family will celebrate his life.  I wasn't sure I wanted to go but I felt I should go to support my father, the relationship with my father's family is different from the one we have with my mother's family.  My father has often said it's his fault because he never made our relationship with his family a priority. So today I am sharing a card that I made for my dad.  I used inspiration from skerch #206 from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  The papers came from the Ready Set Go 6x6 paper pad by Amy Tangerine, the sentiment is a stamp from Stampin' Up and  I added a wood veneer heart to complete the card.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll come back soon.

Just a Note


Hello and happy Wednesday, today is my last day at work for this week..  Today's card is one that I really like how it came out but the lighting seems a little off.  I have Melissa from Moe Creations to thank for this card's inspiration.  After seeing her video I decided to use my Wellies die for the first time  and I am sure I will be using it again soon.  I used paper from a Momenta 6x6 paper pad, some stitched rectangle dies, flowers from Hobby Lobby and a punch for the greenery.  I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes Designer Challenge #6 over at Cardz TV.  Thank you for your visit, take care and enjoy your day.

Hello Sunday, the start of a new week and a beautiful Spring day.  I am back today sharing a birthday card that I made for one of my crafty friends Cheryl, she probably won't receive it until Monday since I didn't get it in the mail until Friday.  I'm sure she won't mind, its the thought that counts!  I used sketch #215 from CAS(E) for inspiration, the birds and swirls cuttlebug folder and a Prima flower.   I cut the stem using my SLICE machine.  I am slowing in my challenge, might need to take some time away from creating.  Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful week.

Hello Friday


Hello Friday, it's raining hard here right now so of course I'd rather be in the bed! It's the weekend, do you have plans?  I'm back today to share another card that has gone postal to another child in need of some encouragement.  I used paper from a 4x6 pad that was gifted to me many years ago, I think it came from Hobby Lobby.  The die is another one of the dies that I purchased off Ebay from China, I really like it but it took several tries before I could get it to cut correctly.  I am sharing this card for the anything goes challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas and Crafty Gals Corner.  Thank you for your visit, take care and enjoy your weekend.

Happy Spring


Hello and happy Monday, starting off with cool temps for the first day of spring and they are calling for rain later.  I am off and running since I was out of the office on Friday but I wanted to stop by and say that I finished my mom's birthday album and it will be going postal within the next few days.  I am not sure when  I will go visit and I want to surprise her since I promised I would have it done by the end of the month.  The only thing left to do is add the names which I will do later.  So today I am sharing another a 2-page LO from the album.  Take care and I hope you'll come back again soon.

Sunday Musings


Hello and happy Sunday, nice temps early yesterday but later in the evening it was a different story.  Today it is cloudy with light rain and some flurries not too far from us and tomorrow is the first day of Spring.  Today I am sharing one of the LOs from an 8x8 album that I am working on from my mom's 75th birthday celebration last October.  This project has gone unfinished long enough, I promised my mom it would be done by the end of this month.  I plan to have it done before I go to bed tonight, I may share more later this week.   Since the album is small and it is important to showcase the pictures there will be limited embellishments.  On this LO I used some rub-ons and a mixture of thickers and letters cut with my SLICE.   Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful week.

Girls Rock


Hello and happy Thursday, more wind but nice temps again today before more cold weather this weekend.   I meant to share this LO in honor of  International Women's Day yesterday but such as life would have it I didn't get around to it.  So here it is today a LO that showcases the day my daughter and I rocked our pearls as part of the movement to honor former First Lady Michelle Obama for her birthday.  I struggled with my paper choice for this LO but I finally chose papers from one of the Craft Smith hot buy paper pads from Michaels, can't remember the name right now.  The flowers are some Prima flowers that I picked up during one of my Tuesday Morning visits, I altered the center by adding some pearls and I used a Spellbinders dies for the greenery.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you are inspiring, growing, nuturing, encouraging and complimenting the girls/women in your life and community.

Hello and happy Friday, its so cold here today nothing like the nice temps we had earlier this week and they are calling for frost tonight.  I'm back today to share a LO that I created for Women's Heart Health when my daughter and I wore red the first Friday in February.  I think I used the cricut Mickey font cartridge for the lettering and the heart, didn't note it when I put the LO together during last month's crop.  The polka dot paper was left over from another project, added a few sequins and this LO was done.    I'm sharing this LO for the Cardz TV Anything Goes Designer Challenge #4.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll come back again soon.

Get Well Soon



Hello and happy Wednesday,  cooler temps and rain today.  I'm back today with another card that I put together for the FB card angel group.  Sketch inspiration for this card came from the February sketch challenge over at Scrapbook and Cards Today, I didn't get to share it over there but I'm sharing it for the use a sketch challenge over at Use Your Stuff.  This was a perfect challenge for me as I almost always use sketches for inspiration.   I used paper from the Paris & Co. by My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad, a tag die,  a Lawn Fawn stamp set and I even did a little coloring!  Take care and have a wonderful Wednesday.

Hello


Hello Tuesday, it's going to be a long day I have been awake since about 3:30 am.  Today I am sharing a LO using a picture taken last March at a community service project.   We were about to leave and decided to take one last picture, I'm glad because some of the other pictures taken during the event did not come out too good.  This is one of those true less is better LOs, I didn't want the picture to get lost since that's what matters most!    The papers and embellishments came from  my stash are from several different companies.  The LO looks better in person because you can see the small details better.  Take care and enjoy your day.

Love


Wow, it's Monday already I need another weekend day what happened I didn't get everything checked off my to do list!  Today I am back sharing another card that I created for the card angel group on FB.  I made this card for a couple that recently adopted their third child, as I read that love is another word for adoption.  Skerch inspiration for the card came from sketch #276 over at Freshly Made Sketches.  I found the mostly used paper kit that I used to make the card while I was looking for something else, the sentiment was one of the stickers in the kit and the heart was something I didn't use on another project.   Oh well off to the races, wishing you and yours a wonderful week.
