Wednesday Wanderings

Welcome to another edition of my Wednesday Wanderings!  I can't believe that it has been what seems like forever since I shared on my blog.  It's not that I haven't been scrappin' but I just haven't had the opportunity to share.   So today's post is more of a what have I been up to!

It has been almost two weeks since I went to my scrappin' retreat in Maryland which afforded me the opportunity to have a little "me time" where I got to hang out with some scrappin' friends and meet some others for the first time.  I am thankful for 'no frill' crops where you can do whatever you want, I didn't get alot done but I was able to almost finish one big project  I have yet to completely unpack, so that is going to be a work in progress as I continue to organize and purge.  I haven't even unpacked my laptop which is really strange for me.

I did make one card which went postal on Monday, I still have some other cards that I need to mail too.  I was back in Maryland last weekend for a football game so that meant I didn't have any time to scrap, I have been working on a few things this week and if all goes well I will have something to share by Friday.

Wishing you and yours a Wonderful Wednesday.

World Card Making Day

Yesterday was World Cardmaking Day and I put this simple card together last night so that I could at least say that I participated.  The inspiration for this card came after I seen a card posted on Scraps of Color.  I used my cameo to cut the sentiment and this week's free file from the Silhouette Online store .  I cut the leaves with my cricut using the Artiste cartridge and paper from the Year Round stack from DCWV.  I still have lots to do but for some reason I can't seem to stop creating!

Thinking of You

Today I am sharing one of the cards that I made last weekend, when I was trying to get some cards made using scraps.  I am so behind  so I'm making these generic cards and trying to get them in the mail as soon as I finish.  All items used have been in my stash for sometime and included some soft spoken stickers,  a button and twine.  I am sharing this card for week #40 blog post over at Scraps of Color, where the challenge was to  pick a card any card!

Today marks the start of my marathon packing task for my upcoming retreat.  I am not sure that I'll get to finish everything that I wanted to do before I leave but I do know that I've got to get this packing done so I can get something done at the retreat.  Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Breast Cancer Awareness

Did you have or schedule your mammogram yet?  If not I hope you will take the time to schedule yours today.

Today marks the start of breast cancer awareness so today's project is one that I created for one of the  challenges over at Scraps of Color.  The challenge was to  create a tag any size with a girl/ lady with a single word that encourages positive thoughts for Breast Cancer.  I used a dress form instead of a girl/lady image. Everything used  came from  my stash,  I have been trying to finish up some projects so that I can start packing for my retreat.  It hasn't been easy and of course everything is out of order, I am so looking forward to this little getaway!

First Day of School

Today's project is a LO of our daughter's first day of school this year.  We were running late so we really didn't have alot of  time so I had to hurry to snap a few pictures.  When my daughterfirst seen the completed LO she said  "wow that's nice, I like that" so it has been teen approved!

The double sided pattern paper is Bazzill and some that I picked up a few weeks ago at Tuesday Morning.  I'm not sure whether you can see it in the picture or not but I did emboss one layer with a cuttlebug folder, not sure of the name right now but it was a gift to me.  Everything else used has been in my stash for quite sometime, I used my cameo to cut the polaroid frame.  I didn't want to overembellish the LO because of the busy paper and I only used one picture.

Wishing you and yours a great weekend, what fun Fall things do you have planned?

Friday Night Chat

Today I am sharing the cards that I  made for the challenges for the Scraps of Color Friday Night Chat.  We had a really good time hanging out Friday celebrating Vivian's retirement from the Air Force, MJ was our hostess and in addition to the challenges, we had the opportunity to win some goodies.  We always have so much fun when we get together.

Challenge #1 - We created HELLO cards that included an inside note to a hero.  I was trying to use up the last few sheets of paper from the MME Moments 6x6 paper pad, I still have enough for one more card!  The hello stamp is one from Hero Arts.  Challenge #2 - We created cards using a provided sketch along with the colors pink and brown, I used paper from a Crate Paper pad, along with my cuttlebug, slice and another hero arts stamp.  Challenge #3 - We created friendship cards that had to include the use of a border punch, flowers and bling.  I used paper from The Paper Studio So-So Sweet paper pad, stickers from Me & My Big Ideas and Recollections bling.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful week.
