A Happy Hello

Hello and happy Sunday, we are expecting temps in the lower 80s today.  We went to church with our neighbors and then out for breakfast and we didn't get home until after 2 which means I am trying to play catch up.  Today I'm sharing a card that I made for the FB card angel group, it has been a while since I shared a card for the angel group.  Sketch inspiration for the card came from Mary's sketch #4 from  Cardz TV  and I am sharing this card for their  Anything Goes Designer Challenge #3.  I used paper from an American Crafts DIYShop paper pad, a stamp and a Jillibean wooden butterfly.    Wishing you and yours a wonderful week.

Fight Like A Girl

Hello Saturday, I meant to share yesterday but as life would have it I never got it.  I did spend some time hanging out with one of my scrapping besties working on some crafty projects last night!  My one problem is that I didn't get to complete as many projects as I wanted.  Today I am sharing one of my projects that I finished, a tag that I originally started last week while I worked on my breast cancer awareness card.  I used leftover scraps of paper from the card, a stamp from Amuse Studio,  a small stitched oval die and a few Recollection pearls and a ribbon.  I am sharing this tag for the anything but a card challenge #144 over at PDE Linky Party. 

Thank you for your visit, enjoy the rest of the weekend.  I hope you have had or have scheduled your annual mammogram.

Wednesday Musings

Hello and happy Wednesday, we have had seasonal Fall temps the last few days.  Today is the final day of volleyball season so it will culminate our daughter's junior varsity team participation.  It has been both challenging and frustrating at times but she made it through and was actually selected team captain.  We are looking forward to her continued growth in the sport so we will be seeking other opportunities for her now that the school season is over.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together using sketch #259 from Freshly Made Sketches after seeing  a card that my friend Felisa from The ScrapinDiva shared on her blog using the same sketch.  I used paper from my scrap stash that came from a Darice Embellished by Dena paper pad, a Spellbinder die and a few enamel dots and the card was done.  Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll come back again soon.

Volleyball Camp

Hello and happy Monday, enjoying the mild temps even though my sinuses are causing me havoc!
I am back today sharing another LO that should have been but because I am so far behind with my LOs I am just getting it done.  I couldn't go to the crop so I decided to work on some LOs at home when I wasn't doing chores or running errands.  It was hard narrowing it down to just four pictures since I had taken so many pictures of her week at volleyball camp.  The pattern paper and the enamel dots came from a kit that I got at the recent CKC, everything else has been in my stash and all that is left to do is add the journaling.  Take care and have wonderful week.

Go Pink for the Cause

Hello and happy Saturday, I am back today to share my breast cancer awareness card.  Almost everything that I used on the card from a Me&My Big Ideas mambikit that I purchased several years ago.  Earlier this week  I almost picked up another paper pad in TM glad I didn't since I still had some stuff left from this kit!  I really need to shop my stash more as the hoarding is out of hand!   I will be sharing this card as my last challenge over at Scraps of Color/Embrace Your Art.   Thank you for your visit, have a great weekend.

Thursday Musings

Hello and happy Thursday, we have been enjoying some unseasonably warm temps this week.  I have been extra busy at work and after work so I haven't had much time to play.  I'm a little down because I won't be attending the weekend crop that I usually attend in October, oh well such is life.  Today I'm sharing a picture of  some of my family taken at my mom's party on Saturday.  I made the photo booth frame which was a big hit!  Take care and have a wonderful day.

Happy Boss's Day

Hello and happy Monday, it's National Pasta Day and National Boss's Day!  The weekend was full and this week is every fuller, got to slow down!  Today I am sharing a card that my co-workers asked me make as I was about to leave work on Friday.  They wanted to know what we could do for our manager and I suggested a gift card so I was charged with making the card and they would get the gift card.  I just got up this morning and pulled these items that I used from my stash and put the card together!  Take care, wishing you and yours a wonderful week.

Holiday Card Swap

Hello and happy Friday, another busy weekend.  Last minute Molly is rushing to finish the photo prop and banner for my mom's birthday party tomorrow.   I will share some pictures from this project next week.

I didn't realize that the deadline to get my cards in for the swap is next Saturday so I need to step it up!  This is one of the reasons I don't like to do swaps as I can't do requirements and deadlines!  Today I am sharing the card that I will be mass producing after I get back home from my mom's party.  I used paper from the Core'dinations Merry & Bright paper pack, I think I picked it up last year.  I cut the window with my cameo, the wreath using a Memory Box die, added a few gems and this card was done.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Happy 75th

Wow, I forgot to share my post yesterday so here it is today!  Screaming Happy 75th Birthday to my mom!  Although my mom won't see this post unless I show it to her when we go down for her party on Saturday.  So blessed to be able to celebrate my mom, she is really an anchor for our family.   I have been busy working on props, decorations and cards as we will be celebrating her birthday on Saturday!  Today I am sharing one of the cards that I made for her, my original intention was to make 75 cards but my mom would have had a fit.  It is just a no bulk shaker card using some stickers, Recollections fun in a jar and Provocraft Celebrations paper.  Take care and enjoy your day!

Monday Musings

Hello and happy Columbus Day!  It seems like forever since I shared, it has been a really busy last few days.  Although hurricane Matthew changed directions we still received heavy rain and moderate winds all day Saturday which resulted in power outages and street flooding.  We still have some power outages which caused some schools to be closed today.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from sketch #193 over at CAS(E) this sketch.  I used mostly paper scraps, a dot embossing folder, cut the tree (added some stickles) using my Silhouette Cameo and the sign from the Freshly Picked cricut cartridge.  I'm participating in a card swap so I am playing around with several different designs before I make all of the cards.  Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll come back again!

Let it Snow

Oh no, not really!  It's Thursday and I am not sure where the week has gone but I'm happy because I am off work tomorrow as a matter of fact I was off on Tuesday too.  I am off tomorrow because I am going to the Creative Keepsake Convention (CKC ) this weekend, I can't believe it is finally coming to Richmond, so glad hurricane Matthew has changed course and we should only get some rain showers.  Today I am sharing a quick card that I put together while sorting through some leftover embellishments.  I had been wanting to use my snowflake embossing folder so when I came across these leftover stickers I just decided to use them.  I just layered everything on the embossed layer and then added it to the base with some pop-dots.  Even though you can't see it, I did spray the card with some glimmer mist.

Take care, have a wonderful weekend.

Monday Musings

Hello and happy Monday, nice fall temps today and a break from the rain!  Today I am sharing a simple wedding card that I put together for a wedding that we attended over the weekend.  DH and I only attended the reception as we had another engagement.  I used paper from my scraps, the dot cuttlebug folder, enamel dots and a sticker for the cake.

Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll come back soon!  Wishing you and yours a wonderful week!
