Thursday Musings


Hello and happy Thursday, one week ago at 5:10 PM my beloved FIL received his wings.  Now you know the emotional journey that our family has been on, he was in hospice/palliative care for 66 days.  He made it to his 79th birthday, our hearts are sad but we rejoice in the fact that he is in a better place now.  Today I am sharing another LO from the journey album that I am working on, I used the finger prints of my FIL, DH and our daughter.  Everything used has been in my stash for a while (with the exception of the prints).  I cut the heart  with my SLICE and the tree is a Darice die.  I have been a little under the weather, busy with arrangements and family so I haven't had a lot of time to play.  Take care and hug your love ones and tell them that you love them.

Composition Books


Hello and happy Wednesday, feeling a little down this week so I haven't felt up to speed.  I'm back today to share two more composition books that I did for my daughter.  I'm still trying to figure out why it was a requirement for them to be covered.  I used more paper from the DCWV Homeroom Stack, stickers from my stash and I used my expression and my cameo for the diecuts.  So proud of baby girl as she continues to sharpen her leadership skills, this is a critical year for her and I'm hoping for amazing things!  Take care and make it a great day.

Happy Birthday


It's Monday and today is my FIL's 79th birthday!  He is currently in hopsice, our family will be going to the hospital for a small celebration this afternoon.  I have a meeting so I won't be able to go with them but I made this banner to hang in his room so I will be going to hang it at lunch time.  I used the Pretty Pennants cricut cartridge for the base, punched the circle and cut the letters with the Cuttin' Up cartridge.  Take care and have a wonderful week.

Just Because


Hello and happy Sunday, I hope that all is well with you and yours as our neighbors near and far are dealing with different natural disasters.  I'm back today to share a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from challenge #228 over at Atlantic Hearts and more papers from the Pebbles Garden Party pad.  The flowers were the last two in the package that I think may have come from Paper House and I used a CTMH stamp for the sentiment.  I am sharing this card for the Super Scraps Challenge #317 over at Hiding in my Craft Room and the Anything Goes Challenge #11 over at  Cardz TV. Take care and be safe.

Endless Love


Hello and happy Friday, I have been up since a little after 3 AM so it's going to be a long day.  I got up went downstairs and covered another composition book for my daughter, did some laundry and finished the LO that I'm sharing today.  It is another LO documenting my FIL's journey, last Saturday when I went to visit him my MIL was giving him his on personal concert, it was so beautiful, I hated to interrupt her so I was only able to snap this one picture.  I used paper from the Craft Smith Harvest Boutique paper pad, misc embellishments from my stash, music notes cut with my Slice and the wonky circle with my Silhouette.  Take care and have a wonderful weekend.

Wednesday Wanderings



Hello and happy Wednesday, the holiday has really thrown me off my game.  We had cool temps this morning and they are calling for rain this afternoon but sunshine and warm temps for the weekend!  I'm back today to share one of my drive by posts as I feel like my poor blog is being neglected.  I did manage to finish two 8x8 LOs for my MIL's  calendar but I didn't take pictures; maybe I will take pictures the next time I am over her house.  Today's quick project share is an altered composition book that my daughter asked me to do for her last night.  I used papers from the DCWV Homeroom Stack and  the Authentique Curiosity 12x12 pad.   I used one of my unbranded dies to cut the stitched square and used it as the label.  She has already warned me that she'll need more, she starts off by saying she is going to help but never does.  I'm sharing this project for the No Layouts or Cards challenge #278 over at Use Your Stuff.  Take care and have a wonderful Wednesday.

Blank Card Face


Hello and happy Saturday, I am back today to share another card.  I created this card for the blank card face challenge over at Soul Scrappers.   If you are looking for some challenges and inspiration you may want to look at their site; this is my second time creating and sharing a project over at Soul Scrappers.  In case you wondering, a blank face card is a card that doesn't include a sentiment on the card front!  I used papers from the Garden Party 6x6 paper pad from Pebbles, the ribbon and flowers have been in my stash for a very long time.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you will return soon.

Hello



Hello and happy Friday, I started this post yesterday afternoon and didn't get a chance to finish it.  My daughter and I got a little play time Wednesday night working on our planners and when we finished I made this card after watching a YT video.  The pattern papers came from a Jillibean Soup 6x6 paper pad that I picked up earlier this year on clearance at ACMoore.   I have lots of paper but I never seem to have what I need!   I am sharing this for the Anything Goes Challenge #9 over at Cardz TV.  Thank you for your visit, wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Our Hero


Hello and happy Wednesday, hope everyone survived the solar eclipse without  incident.  I've been MIA for about a week, as a matter of fact I meant to share this post yesterday but as life would have it I didn't.  Today I am sharing a LO that has helped ease some of the emotions that my family is going through right now.  The LO uses picture taken  during an awards ceremony at the VA Hospital last month.  The award was presented by the Bon Secours Health System Hospice Team.  My FIL is currently a hospice patient, I am so happy that I was able to document what could be the last time I see his smile.  Cancer sucks and right now it has attacked his brain, he is on the decline.  Our hearts are sad but we are happy for the life he has lived.  All items used on this LO came from my stash!

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.

Hello and welcome, it has been a while since I had a whatever Wednesday post!  More rain and cooler temps again today.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together using this week's sketch from Mojo Monday.  I created this card using  scraps of paper from my stash, the pattern paper came from the My Mind's Eye Happy Day 6x6 paper pad.  The stitched circle die  with the sentiment is another die from China, I added some party pink glimmer mist to the card base, added a few sequins and the card was done.  I am still shopping my stash, day 24 of no craft shopping.  Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful Wednesday.

Monday Musings


Hello and happy Monday, it is cloudy and rainy here.  I don't feel like working, I'd rather be in the bed with the covers pulled over my head!  My daughter left for her minimester this morning and of course we were late leaving  home because we were up late last night finishing up some last minute packing.  Today's card is one that I created using some of the unbranded dies ordered from China, they were gifted to me by one of my scrappin' BFFs that ordered duplicates.   I just cut the top layer with the die three times, stamped the sentiment and added some colored sticker dots, colored the card base under the cutouts  with TH distress inks and this card was done.   I'm sharing this card for the Cardz TV Mailbox Smiles Anything Goes Challenge #2.  Take care, I hope you'll come back again soon.

Celebrating Friends


Hello Saturday, another warm day in the forecast.  Lots going on and I am tired,  not enough time to play or post. Today I am sharing a card that I finally finished last night using sketch #497 from Mojo Monday.  I used paper from The My Mind's Eye Paris & Co 6x6 paper pad, flowers from Recollections pearls in center from. HL and the sentiment cut from the Beyond Birthdays cricut cartridge.  I created this card for the First and Third challenge over at Scraps of Color..  Take care and enjoy your weekend.
