Today as my husband celebrates the day of his birth we will be celebrating the life of my beloved oldest sister.   She was 54 years young,  Fay passed on Tuesday.  I still can't believe it but I am standing on grace; it hurts so bad but I've got to keep pressing on.  She fought a good fight but it just wasn't meant to be!  This is one of the last pictures that me and my sisters took together.

Thinking of You

I'm sending well wishes for a great day to all those that will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the cvil rights march in Washington today.  There will be lots of people so I pray for peace and the safety for all those that will be in attendance.  The weather should be good after all of the rain yesterday.

Today I am sharing another card that I made for one of the challenges of the Summertime and the Scrappin' is Easy workshop.  The challenge was to use a person, mist and some bling.  I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture but I did mist the card base.  The little girl with the heart is one that comes loaded on the silhouette, the stamp is an old one from the Michael's $1 bin and the bling Recollections.   Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Back 2 School

Summer vacation is almost over for my daughter and she'll be heading back to school after Labor Day.  I'm back at work today after being off to take care of my daughter who had an outpatient medical procedure earlier this week; my MIL will be taking  care of her until she goes back to school.  My sister is doing better and should be out of ICU tomorrow; my heart is a little less heavy!

Today I'm sharing a card that I made using inspiration from sketch #186 from Operation Write Home.  I am also sharing this card for week 33 blog challenge over at Scraps of Color and the monthly challenge over at Mema's Crafts .  When making this card I used paper scraps, bling, a CTMH stamp and a foam sticker star  all from my stash.

Thank your for  stopping by, wishing you a great day.

Hello Tuesday, lots still going on but I'm still standing on God's grace and mercy.   Today's LO is another project from the Summertime and the Scrappin' is Easy  workshop.  The workshop has ended but I still have a ways to go before I finish all the assigments!  The challenge for this LO was to use paint on the background and to make a layered flower with torn crumpled paper.  I'm not sure you can see the paint but it's there and I also inked the edges for the flower.  The metal title  is something that has been in my stash for a while and I used my cameo to cut the frame.  The picture is of my daughter and one of her friends at a girl scout event earlier this summer.

Thinking of You

Its Thursday, a cool morning with a forecast of warmer temps this weekend.  My mind and heart is heavy too much to try to sort through; I'm starting to think I need a break;  a vacation of some sorts.  I need some 'me time' or something to take my mind and thoughts in a different direction.  Oh well such as it I've got to press on and keep looking upward!

Today I'm sharing a circle card, nothing fancy  as that's just not my style!  I'm sharing this card for the week 32 blog challenge over at Scraps of Color.  The card base was cut using my cricut and the Wild Card cartridge.  I used paper from the DCWV Latte paper stack, the flower and pearl embellishments from Recollections.  The stamp has been in my stash forever, one that I picked up from the $1 bin at Michaels.

Wishing you a great day.

Christmas in August

Hello Tuesday!  Today's post short and to the point;  it's my first holiday card for the season.  My play time continues to be limited.

It's another signature simple  card for  week 31 blog challenge over at Scraps of Color.   The inspiration for this card  is sketch 253 from Clean & Simple Stamping.  I used scrap paper from my stash along with TPC Studio and Hampton Art stamps.  Take care and have a great day.

Hello Sunday

The start of a new week of prayer and praise as we learned on Friday that my sister is number 2 on the transplant list.  We are so happy for God's grace and anxiously await the next breakthrough.

I am strill trying to get in some scrappin'  in whenever possible.  Today I am sharing a LO and card that I completed for the Summertime and the Scrappin is Easy workshop.  On the LO I used stickles on the base and another picture from our trip to Pittsburgh.  The card was made  using some of the paper scraps from the LO and other misc. elements.

Thank you for stopping by, wishing you a great week!

Once Upon a Time

Its Thursday and I finally finished a LO to post, haven't felt much like scrappin' I just don't have the energy.  I do have the desire but emotionally I just can't seem to do it.  My sister is headed back to Alabama later today for more test. 

So today's LO is one that I completed for day 11 of the Summertime and the Scrappin' is Easy workshop hosted by Tiare from iClassygirl, I am so far behind but I do plan to finish the workshop.  This LO uses some school age pictures of DH, I will probably use them again with some pictures of our daughter at the same age.  All items from my stash, the main challenge was to use metal embellishments, I also used washi tape and ribbon.  Take care and have a great day!

Feel Better Soon

Hello Saturday, getting ready for another busy day.  Today I'm sharing a card that I made to send to my sister who was recently diagnosed with needing a liver transplant.  She lives in Georgia and has been in Alabama this week testing and getting ready to be placed on the transplant list.  Please keep our family in prayer.

The inspiration for this card came from sketch #183 over at Operation Write Home. I used a Making Memories 6x6 paper pad that's been in my stash forever along with a stamp that I picked up from the Hobby Lobby earlier this year.  Can you see that I even inked the edges of the paper?  Take care and enjoy your day!

Got Braces! Got Glasses!

Hello and Happy Friday, I am not necessarily doing the weekend happy dance but I'm hoping for a little down time.  Today's LO is one that I started last night and finished just this morning for the Summertime and the Scrappin' is Easy workshop challenge.  As I stated in my last post I am so far behind that I need several days of nothing but scrappin' to catch up!  It doesn't help that I'm still trying to squeeze some other challenges into the mix too!  So today's LO uses pictures taken of our daughter the day she received her braces and glasses both on the same day.  She has a new look for her return to school but she's still smiles radiantly and looks beautiful.  I am still scrappin' my stash using items that I've had for quite some time.  I used blinged lettering for the word 'GOT' but they don't show very well in the picture.  I even used my cricut to cut the sunglasses as a stand-in for glasses!  Thank you for stoppin' by, hope you have blessed weekend.
