Hello Monday, the weekends go by way too fast! We are gearing up for some great weather this week which is good since the State Fair is in town and that usually means rain for ten days straight! Today I'm sharing a card that I put together using this week's sketch over at Operation Write Home. I am also sharing this card for week #38 blog challenge over at Scraps of Color. Over at Let's Get Sketchy their weekly challenge was to share a Fall or Halloween inspired card. I even pulled out my SLICE and cut the leaf which I misted, not sure you can see that in the picture. Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a blessed week

Clean & Simple Stamping. This sketch was right in line with my whole style of keeping it simple. I used just two pieces of washi tape that I picked up from the Dollar Tree, a few pearls and a stamp from a CTMH thank you set. I see that I may need to re-enforece the glue some on the edges of the tape but other than that I like how it came together; I especially like that it took me less than 10 minutes to put it together. The mailman delivered my envelope punch board today so I may open it to see if I can figure it out. No I didn't need it but I decided that I had to have it!

It's just the two of us now, we just have each other; that's how my youngest sister ends our conversations now. She reminds me that I am the oldest now and we have to take of each other, not ready to fill those shoes. I've been going through my pictures because I want to frame a LO for my mom for her birthday next month. I wish I had more pictures of me and my sisters, I don't like taking pictures so I am usually the one behind the camera. When I came across this picture of me and my younger sister I decided to scrap it for this month's I Scrapbook, Therefore, I AM challenge over at Scraps of Color. This month's challenge could be back to school or sisterhood related. I used my cricut to cut the dress form from the Formal Occasion cartridge, first time using that cartridge! Take care and have a blessed day.
iClassygirl and Scraps of Color. All items for the LO and card came from my scrap stash and the card was given to our nephew who celebrated his 11th birthday yesterday.

Scraps of Color. The challenge for week 37 is called Die Cutter's Delight. This week's blog challenge is to pull out our die-cutting machines and make a project using them. I used my cameo to cut the library pocket card using a file from the silhouette store. The paper used is from a Kathy Davis Happiness stack that I picked up on clearance from JoAnn's. The embellishments are from Recollections and the stamp Studio G. Wishing you and yours a great week!

First day of school today, look at our 7th grade tween. She was tired of taking pictures and didn't want to cooperate by the time I took this picture with my cell phone as we were getting in the car. She woke up early this morning but we still didn't make our target departure time so we'll be working on fine tuning our morning ritual. I sure hope it doesn't rain today so that that "school do" will last!

Hello Monday and Happy Labor Day! Just wanted to share a post thanking everyone for their kind words and expression. You have warmed my heart; the road won't be easy but it will be come easier as time passes. Not too much going on today, I wanted to craft but I can't seem to focus.
