Thursday Musings


Hello Thursday, another really hot day in our area so minimal outside time is in order.  I was late coming into work again today so I will stay a little later today.  I made dinner and decided I needed a little therapy so I put the card together that I'm sharing today.  I made this card for an online crop that I signed up for on FB; I might not be able to complete all of the challenges.  I used more paper from the Doodlebug Collections Santa Express pad,  a diecut from the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge and more Recollections enamel dots.  I'm sharing this card for the Christmas in July challenges over at Cardz TV and Hiding in my Craft Room.  Take care and have a terrific Thursday!

Happy You Day


Hello and happy Wednesday, more hot weather in the forecast so I'm staying inside!  We are still on our emotional journey so my crafting time is very limited.  I decided to just take sometime this morning and put this card together to help relieve some stress.  Sketch inspiration for the card came from sketch #47 over at Paper Play Sketches, the pattern paper is from the DCWV Teenage Dream Stack.  I cut the shoe with the Nifty Fifties cricut cartridge, the stamped sentiment is from the This and That stamp set from Cardz TV and the enamel dots are from Recollections.  I'm sharing this card for the CardzTV Mailbox Smiles Anything Goes Challenge #6.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll return soon.

Worlds Best Father


Hello and happy Friday, I think we just might get away with no rain today.   Today I am sharing my first Father's Day card for the year, I need to step it up a bit so I can get them done and mailed on time.   I am super excited because I made the card using the CTMH Artfully Sent cricut cartridge which was recently gifted to me by one of my scrappin' BFFs.  I am so thankful for the kindness and generosity of my friends.  The inspiration for wanting to make this card came after I watched a video from Joy over at Obsessed with Scrapbooking earlier this week.  I definitely need some more practice using this cartridge, The manual says you can cut the card at a size 7 but I couldn't so I cut it at 6.75.  I only have the Expression because I prefer  cutting directly from the cartridge.  I am sharing this card for the masculine challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room.  Take care and enjoy your weekend.

Happy Mother's Day


Hello Thursday, can't believe how fast this week has flown by!  I'm back today to share my very first Mother's Day for this year and since it is only a few weeks away I really need to step up my game and crank out some cards.  Today's super simple but cute card was created using Mary's sketch #17 (I've used this sketch before) from Cardz TV.   The pattern paper is from the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook 6x6 paper pad, the other papers came from a Momenta pad, both have been in my stash for a while.  The focal point of this card for me is the hearts which symbolizes the love a mother has for her children.  A few epoxy heart stickers and a stamped sentiment completes this card.  Thank you for your visit and hope you'll come back soon.

Happy Sibling Day


Hello and happy Monday, I feel like it has been forever since I shared on my blog!  I have had a very busy last few days so no time for crafting but I did manage to spend some time with family, friends and associates.  Today I am sharing a picture taken of me and my youngest sister taken on Thursday after my uncle's funeral.  It's just the two of us now and sometimes my heart really longs and aches to chat with my oldest sister.  I know that she is looking down and rooting for us as we weather the storms of everyday life.  I am thankful for the time we did have with her.  Take care, have a good day and don't forget to let your family know how you feel about them and cherish the time you have with them.

From the Heart


Hello Thursday, the forecast calls for some bad weather.  Today I am making a turnaround road trip home.  It has been over a week since my uncle (one of my father's brothers) transitioned from earth to his heavenly home and today the family will celebrate his life.  I wasn't sure I wanted to go but I felt I should go to support my father, the relationship with my father's family is different from the one we have with my mother's family.  My father has often said it's his fault because he never made our relationship with his family a priority. So today I am sharing a card that I made for my dad.  I used inspiration from skerch #206 from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  The papers came from the Ready Set Go 6x6 paper pad by Amy Tangerine, the sentiment is a stamp from Stampin' Up and  I added a wood veneer heart to complete the card.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll come back soon.

Just a Note


Hello and happy Wednesday, today is my last day at work for this week..  Today's card is one that I really like how it came out but the lighting seems a little off.  I have Melissa from Moe Creations to thank for this card's inspiration.  After seeing her video I decided to use my Wellies die for the first time  and I am sure I will be using it again soon.  I used paper from a Momenta 6x6 paper pad, some stitched rectangle dies, flowers from Hobby Lobby and a punch for the greenery.  I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes Designer Challenge #6 over at Cardz TV.  Thank you for your visit, take care and enjoy your day.

Love


Hello Tuesday, seasonal temps and of course all the other issues that come along with all of the pollen.  Today I am sharing another anniversary card that I put together using one of Mary's sketches from Cardz TV.  I used sketch #12, I am so all over the place I have got to get organized.  I've been so busy working on cards that my LO challenge has been neglected.  The papers used on this card came from the MME Honey Cake 6x6 pad, the sentiment die was part of a set I received from my scrapping BFF for my birthday and the gems from Hobby Lobby.  Take care and have a terrific Tuesday.

Monday Musings


Hello and happy Monday, again the weekend was too short.  A quick driveby post, too much to do and not enough time or energy.  Today I am sharing a birthday card that I put together  using sketch  inspiration from Colours  & Sketches.  I just used some of my scraps of paper from my stash and a stamped sentiment, just a few cuts some foam tape this card was done. It is going postal latter today!  Take care and enjoy your week.

Happy Birthday Cheryl


Hello Sunday, the start of a new week and a beautiful Spring day.  I am back today sharing a birthday card that I made for one of my crafty friends Cheryl, she probably won't receive it until Monday since I didn't get it in the mail until Friday.  I'm sure she won't mind, its the thought that counts!  I used sketch #215 from CAS(E) for inspiration, the birds and swirls cuttlebug folder and a Prima flower.   I cut the stem using my SLICE machine.  I am slowing in my challenge, might need to take some time away from creating.  Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful week.
