The Labor Day weekend is winding down and I'm feeling like I need just one more day! Today I am sharing a card that I'll be giving to one of my coworkers. I should have put it in the mail but I couldn't find her mailing address so I'll just put it on her desk and she'll get it when she returns. I used the "For You" julie Nutting cling stamp for the doll and the sentiment, I have mixed feelings about the doll stamps and I'm not sure when I may take on the task of using one again. I really wanted to give them a try since there just seems to be a lot of rave and fanfare for the doll stamps right now, I have several in my stash but I probably won't be adding anymore! The doll was colored with color pencils, the pattern paper is WeR Memory Keepers and just a few other items from my stash and the card was done. I am also sharing the card for the Anything Goes weekly blog challenge over at Scraps of Color. Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.

Today marks the first anniversary of the passing of my dear sister Fay. I have been struggling with how I feel and what to do. Of course I still think of her everyday, wish I could talk to her, share with her, cry with her! There are so many things that I wish were different, too much unsaid and undone. I think I'll just do as less as possible today, maybe I'll complete a project in her honor!

I am happy to report that I am able to share this LO for three different challenges. The sketch inspiration is from Tiare's Desk to Done. In honor of both National Sisters Day and National Girlfriends Day the blog challenge for week #33 and the monthly creative challenge over at Scraps of Color is to create a project celebrating these relationships. I used pictures taken of my recent trip to Raleigh, North Carolina where I met SOC family members for the first time!

Clean & Simple Stamping, I used embellishments and paper from my scrap pile which doesn't seem to be decreasing. The stamp is one that I picked up from HL on clearance, the pattern paper came from Provocraft's rob and bob Celebrations pad. Wishing you and yours a Wonderful week!

Hello it's hump day and I'm feeling a little under the weather, hope I can make it through today. We have tickets to a baseball game tonight so even if I make it through the work day I can't go home and rest. Today's post is one that I've been trying to finish for almost a month, it was an emotional task and it seemed I just couldn't get everything together; the only thing left to do is the journaling as I've got to narrow it down to fit the designated space. Last month I shared that my DH was giving me an anniversary gift, he replaced my car. This LO uses pictures of my old car that I took a few weeks after he sold it, I wanted to buy it back, his reply I'm not putting it back on my insurance! I'm not sure why I love that car so much but it sure was painful letting it go. I used paper from a K&Co stack, I cut the title from the cricut Wild Card cartridge, the embellishments include items from Queen & Co., Tim Holtz and American Crafts. Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday.
