Sunday Musings

Hello and Happy Sunday, today is our 17th wedding anniversary!  We didn't make any plans so we will just go out to dinner and of course baby girl will be with us!  So today I am sharing my latest LO which uses a picture we took earlier this year at a birthday party.  I like how it came together and I think it looks better in person.  The title is a file from the Silhouette online store, I used Fiskars punches for the shapes, added some honeycomb gems from the Paper Stack and a few other embellishments and it was done!

Take care and have a great week!

Happy 4th

Happy Independence Day!  I'm back today to share the last of the three cards that I made for the 4th of July;  they all went postal but I'm not sure they will receive them in time!  Today's card is one where I decided not to use more of the pattern paper instead I used a star embossing folder  I cut the firecracker using the cricut Summer Celebrations Cartridge, a Hero Arts stamp for the sentiment and added a few sequins and the card was done.  Even though it seems simple when I say what I did to the card it still takes me forever to complete a project!  I hope the card arrives with the sequins in tact!

Take care and enjoy your holiday!

A Happy Hello

Yesterday was July 1 and I forgot it was our nephew's 19th birthday and also his parents anniversary.  I really have to get myself organized, so I don't have to send belated wishes, I did send them an email message which is something I am trying to do less of.  This electronic age has taken over so much of our lives!  So today I am sharing the card that I am going to send to our nephew.  

While I was reading my email this morning (real early)  I saw the the sketch inspiration over at Two Paper Divas which was actually sketch challenge #275 from Sweet Sunday Sketch. so I will probably share this card over there too!  I just pulled some random papers from my stash of scraps and put this card together using two TH gears, a small sentiment stamp from Stampin' Up and a banner punch. 

Take care and have a great day!

Tuesday Musings

Hello and Happy Tuesday, I am back today to share another holiday card that is going postal today!  I  am hoping that it arrives by Friday.  The inspiration for this card came from a design team member's post that was shared over at Scraps of Color, she posted that the sketch she used came was sketch #46 from Deconstructed Sketch.  I am all about clean and simple sketches so I decided to use it right away since I was making 4th of July cards; I only made three!  As previously shared I used papers from Recollections and the Paper Stack along with a few gems and stars; the sentiment is from the Summer Celebrations cricut cartridge.

I'm sharing this card for the anything goes challenge posted over at Use Your Stuff, they will have this challenge posted throughout the summer so you can participate/share too!

Take care and make it a great day!

Yesterday I shared that I had participated in the Friday Night Chat Challenges over at Scraps of Color, today I am sharing the LO that I created.  We were given a sketch prompt, instructions to include four pictures, a title and journaling and anything else we wanted to include.

Today's LO uses pictures taken of our daughter as we were celebrating her first birthday.  This is before we started having the masses join us for her celebrations!  This was her first experience eating cake with frosting.  My son was away in college so it was just her dad and I there to share this experience and she still has and uses that bowl today!

I used the cricut cartridges Simply Charmed and Something to Celebrate to cut the title and the slice of cake.  The washi tape, stickers, gems and papers that have been in my stash forever.

Take care and have a great week.

Lazy Day

Saturday is almost over but I decided to still post this card that I just finished.  I was up late last night into this morning because I hung out online over at Scraps of Color chatting and working on challenges.  So today I was sleepy and didn't feel like doing much of anything since it was a cloudy, rainy and stormy day.

Today I am sharing a card that was inspired by challenge #403 over at Mojo Monday.  I used papers from Recollections and Paper Studio, I cut the sentiment  and the circle with the SLICE.  The little star gems have been in my stash forever!  I am also sharing this card for the any holiday challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room and the red, white and blue challenge over at Scraps of Color.

Take care and enjoy!

Friday Musings

Today's card has a wild and crazy story behind it, this is the short version!

While going through my inbox yesterday I saw a card on the Two Paper Divas blog using the CAS(E) this sketch #128 and I immediately decided I wanted to make a card using it.  What started out being a simple task turned into a cutting nightmare; I'm wondering if I need another trimmer.  I cut the card, stamped my sentiment and decided on my embellishments all before I came into the office.  Well long story short I messed up my cuts with the crazy trimmer that I keep in my office found some more paper and messed it up too.  All I was suppose to do once I got into the office was to add adhesive, embellish, snap the picture, and post; that is not what happened!  So I finally found some more paper and what happened the embellishments that I bought in for the other paper didn't work so I had to search through my stash at work for something to use, I think I need to add to my stash that I keep at work!  Enough said, I think its pretty and it's going postal to someone recuperating from surgery!

Take care and have a wonderful weekend!
