Tuesday Musings


Hello Tuesday, it's cold and dreary outside; it is snowing in some areas but not here so I am glad! I Yesterday was my father's birthday and since I got caught up celebrating my daughter I had to mail his cards in a hurry.  Today I am sharing another clean and simple card that I put together while I was making his cards.  I find these cards are easier and less expensive to mail!  I just used some scraps of paper from my stash including a small strip of handmade paper from a LO that I started over the weekend.  I cut the embellishment from the CTMH Artiste cricut cartridge, added a few silver gems, popped it onto the card, stamped the sentiment and the card was done!  I'm sharing this card for this weeks no reds or pinks challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room.

Mother's Day 'Usie'


Hello and happy Super Sunday, I am not a big professional sports fan so I am not one of the people waiting for the big game today!  Instead I am preparing to finish our daughter's birthday celebration, we will be going to Dave & Busters today along with five of her friends.  Today I am sharing another LO that I completed last week.  I am still way behind for my 2016 challenge but I am making progress.  This LO uses the 'Usie' that we took on Mother's Day last year as we were about to start our road trip to see my parents.  Since I used pattern paper I decided to limit the embellishments, I used some ephemera for the Hello Sunshine package from Pink Paislee that I picked up in Tuesday Morning last Spring.  I completed the LO by just stamping Mother's Day and the year directly on the paper.

Thank you for your visit, take care and have a Super Week.

Happy Birthday Baby Girl


Today our daughter is celebrating her birthday, this is the sign I made for her, this what she'll see when she goes into her bathroom this morning.  I used the Creats-a-Critter and Mickey font cartridges, glittered stickers for the number and punches for the hearts and stars.  We have a busy day planned with family and friends today and tomorrow.  Take care and enjoy your weekend!

Feel Better Soon


It's Friday, the start of the weekend, what's on your calendar?  Tomorrow baby girl turns 15 so the birthday excitement is in the air.  Today I am sharing another card that I made for FB group and it has already gone postal.  I just used misc. paper scraps from my stash, cut the sentiment using the Lyrical Letters cricut cartridge and the embellishment is from K&Co and has been waiting forever to be used on a project!  The sketch inspiration for the card came from challenge #433 over at Mojo Monday.  I am also sharing this card for challenge #236 - Freestyle over at Hiding in my Craft Room. 

Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Throwback Thursday


It is Thursday and we woke up to warm temps and rain and of course I didn't want to get out of bed! We are in countdown mode as we are gearing up to celebrate the 15th birthday of our baby girl.  I am back today to share a LO using a picture of my DH and his brother.  I was going through an old album and decided to scrap the picture of them taken the day my DH graduated from college.

I really dug through my scrap stash and completed this LO using only one full sheet of paper as the base.  I used stickers from two different Momenta sticker packs, AC wood veneer stars, the wavy arrow was cut previously with my cameo and the cap using the school's colors cut using the Locker Talk cricut cartridge.

Take care and enjoy your day!

Happy Birthday Monica


Today is my sister-in-laws's birthday so I am sharing the card that I made for her.  All items used have been in my stash for some time.  I don't remember when I made that cut using the Forever Young cricut cartridge but it has finally found its way to a project, I cut the oval with a Spellbinder die, added some Paper Studio flowers and a stamped sentiment and the card was done!  I'm sure she probably won't receive it in today's mail but it is the thought that counts.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you'll come back tomorrow as I'll be sharing another completed LO!

Hello February


Hello Monday and welcome to February; let's make it a great day!  Yesterday was my son's birthday and Saturday is my daughter's birthday so we are in a celebratory mood.  We have other family members celebrating their birthday's this month too.  I'm doing a happy dance because I finally got a few LOs done, I didn't finish my challenge for January but I'm hoping to do better this month.  Today I am sharing my daughter's first day of school LO, clean and simple! I used a sheet of Recollections paper for the base with the remaining paper coming from the DCWV High School paper stack.  The back to school circle is a rub-on, the remaining embellishments are stickers from a school pack that I picked up from Hobby Lobby on clearance sometime ago.  

Take care and have a wonderful week!
