Hello Tuesday

It has been a while since I posted so I rushed to finish this card this morning, not sure if I like it or not but it has gone postal to someone celebrating their birthday tomorrow.  Another signature simple birthday card using provocraft solid and pattern paper, I cut the balloons with my cameo and the other tag and file tabs with my slice!

I'm sharing this card for two challenges, sketch #273 over at Clean & Simple Stamping and #130 Anything but Holiday over at Hiding in my Craft Room.

Wishing you and yours all the best in 2014.

Hello Sunday

I am up bright and early but really wanting to go back to bed.  I spent yesterday trying to figute out how I can salvage Christmas especially since I'm not feeling it.  I truly understand the reason for the season but right now I just can't wrap myself or my feelings into it.  I gave up on sending out holiday cards this year; I'll distribute the few that I made at work tomorrow. 

Today I'm sharing two more simple cards that I made with scraps from the gift card envelopes.   While  visiting my friend Felisa's blog over at The Scrapin Diva I saw that she used a tree embossing folder on one of her cards which reminded me that I had never used mine.  So I opened mine and used it for the card I'm sharing today; I used stickles on the star along with some misc. pearl embellishments.  The other card using a file from the silhouette store (recognize it), added some ribbon, a star and bling embellishments.  I've made quite a few cards with the tees on them this year.

Have a great week and a blessed holiday.

Hello Friday

It's Friday and I'm feeling so out of sort and overwhelmed, another hectic work week which means everything else is chaotic too.  No I am not ready for the upcoming holiday and at this point I really don't care, I'm emotionally drained and I can't get out of this funk.  Today I'm sharing a picture of some gift card envelopes that I made for my job, I don't know what made me take this project on but its done and some people actually commented and liked receiving them.  I used several different papers along with my envelope punch board, one of the best purchases I've made in a while!

Happy Holidays

Hello and Happy Thursday!  I've been extremely busy which means I haven't had time to play with my pictures, paper and glue (DH's description of scrapbooking).  I am so behind in getting my holiday cards made to the point where I might not send any out.  It doesn't help that our social calendar is booked for the next few weeks.  Where does the time go, where has this year gone?

Today I'm sharing a simple holiday card that I put together to include in a holiday gift swap.  This card also meets the blog challenge for week #49 over at Scraps of Color.   The challenge was to create a project using red, gold and green.  The tree is a file from the silhouette online store, the gold pattern paper is from the DCWV foiled elegance stack and other items are from Recollections.  Have a great day!

Service Project

Last night we got together to stuff gift bags for our holiday service project, I committed to donate a Christmas card, journal and pen to each bag; I hope this small measure of giving back is a source of some holiday happiness to the receipient.  This is actually our first service project together for this particular group, in the past we have participated in joint projects with our husbands.  Today I'm sharing another picture of some of the cards that I made.  I hope to complete a LO of us putting the bags together soon.

RIP in peace Nelson Mandela.  Prayers, condolences and prayers for traveling mercies for members of my husband's family as they celebrate the life of Aunt Lucy.  We were unable to make the trip because of other obligations.

We had mild temps yesterday but its cold this morning and bracing ourselves for some winter weather this weekend so I may get to start on my own holiday cards.  Wishing you and yours a blessed weekend.

Whatever Wednesday

Hello Wednesday, and today's post is going to be rather simple and to the point.  I have been busy finishing up the holiday cards for our service project at the shelter.  I will share pictures of those cards soon.  The weather here is cool and rainy this morning so  I am wanting to be in the bed, but duty calls gotta get to work as I have another busy day!  Today's card is one that I made for one of my sista scrappin' friends mother.  Her mother is celebrating her 85th birthday this week, I was honored to send her a card, I hope she likes it!
