I'm Back!

Well hello how's it going.....I have been MIA yet again....Busy busy I tell you....We have done more in the last few weeks than I think we did all Summer....Our nieces from Monterey California were here for a little over two weeks.....They are 17 and 19 and girls....I just love them.....We went snorkeling, to the USS Arizona memorial, Luau, The Beach, North Shore & The Dole Plantation and out shopping at several malls.....And on top of all that My husband and I attended the Khaki Ball.....The girls also made a few craft projects which was of course fun.....But I didn't seem to get much of my stuff done.....I was late mailing out my Card Mingle for this month so sorry Chris I hope you like it and it doesn't take to long to arrive in Canada.....But I have managed to get a few cards made....I also have Halloween spread all over my table.......We love Halloween and our oldest son's birthday is October 30Th so we love having Halloween Party for both the kids and the adults....What fun we have so I need to get those invitations started.....Well enough about what I have been up to and on to the card.....Edwin is so easy to make and color and for some reason I seem to think that primary colors look great with him...I used some scraps of paper from other projects and a few flowers which are from the craft store for making arrangements I just cut them apart, the simple sentiment is a StampinUp! Rub-on....Enjoy and have a great weekend......Thanks for stopping by...

A Little Thank You Card

I have a blogger friend that sent me something and I wanted to make a cute thank you card to let her know how thoughtful I think she was to do that....I used some older Chatterbox patterned paper, CB embossing folder, SU scallop punch & circle punches, Stamps are Maganolia and Cuddlybuddly, white gel pen....I made the front popped up with pop-dots to make a pocket that has a pull-out card that I will write my personal thank you note on....I just loved this little card and the colors.....I hope that she likes it.....I will have to let you know....Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping....Love Love

Taking The Bike Out

Things sure have been busy here....The girls are here and we are loving it so much....Even the boys are enjoying it.....Although I'm not sure they would admit it....This is a picture of my husband Vernon and our niece Rebekah going for a ride on the bike.....It worked out well because she can fit my jacket and helmet.....I know your surprised that it's pink but of course when I saw it I knew that was the one I wanted.....They went our for awhile and I was able to get a few shots of them....Now Melissa wasn't so ready to get on the bike with her Uncle I think she might be a little scared.....Maybe next time....I have been very busy with the boys school work, football practice and our visitors but I have been able to get a few cards made....I will post them next.....Have a great night....Thanks for stopping by...

Time For Blog Candy!

So I think it's time that I put up some Blog Candy.....Since I have never done this before I thought it would be kind of cool to ask you guys what you think....Should there be a challenge....
For Example
1. Card Challenge ~ use at least one of each of the following ~ chipboard, button, rub-on, and green paper
2. Sketch Challenge ~ post a sketch and then everyone makes a card from that
3. Random ~ Just pick a winner from a number

Well I would really love to hear what you think would be the most fun....Do you think it's fair to do a challenge and then let pick a random number for the winner or pick the winner based on the best project.....I'm going to be working on the "candy" I know I have some great stuff to give away so I will try and get that posted by Monday....Please leave your thoughts on this I really want to know.....

A New Card!

I'm back and with a new card....Well I have a few I need to get uploaded....I'm finally getting over this sinus infection....Thanks to all of you who wished me better.....Our yard sale went really well...Actually really shocking....We made $240.00 which wasn't to bad for a bunch of junk....Of course none of the boys in my house wanted to help clean out closets and find old stuff we no longer use but on Saturday morning of course Dominick and Vernon were there so willing to help and then wanted a cut of the money.....I tell you....I told them all proceeds were stamping funds and they laughed at me.....We are so excited that our nieces are coming to visit for a few weeks on Tuesday....The girls have grown up into beautiful young women....How did that happen....It will be so fun cause they both enjoy stamping and scrapbooking so we will have many girl nights....I just love that about them......O.K. so enough about all of that....
This is a card I made with my new Sugar Nellie stamps and I think that she is just so cute....Of course whenever I make anything pink and brown I'm usually super happy with the results.....This would be one of them....Fairly simple card.....I used SU punch, amuse stamp, Sugar Nellie image, copic markers, quickutz scallop square, American Crafts paper and lace & ric-race....Can't wait to hear what you think.....Happy Stamping and have a great day!
