Oh Dear

it's coming ... cold weather .... it's coming, ugh.   Today my card is for the first "Hope You Can Cling" Challenge at SCS .  The challenge is to make a card showcasing your least favorite weather , for me it's cold and snow I don't like.  Ugh.   Maybe someday I'll live further south and will just see pictures of the white stuff,  haha!   For now though, shopping for new boots.

I used the sketch over at Sketch Frenzy Friday 100215.   Enjoy!

Celebrate Home

I'm so happy to be home this week ... no travel.  I'll be back out next week but these last 2 weeks have been a blessing to enjoy the comforts of home ... aahhh!   This is inspired by this week's Retro Sketches #184.   I loved these images from my new CTMH Cricut Cartridge Artistry.

Oh yeah, this week at work we're going for a week of .... Positivity!  No Negative comments (or thinking) allowed, LOL!   The whole premise is that we control our own emotions and attitudes.  It will be tough because it's easy to get swallowed in frustration but will be good to work at staying optimistic!  

I'm grateful they care!   This inspired my card for today.  I used the colors for the October Card Challenge Color Category and Tuesday Morning Sketches #320.

Hello Fall

Whew, Fall blew into Ohio this weekend and it has really brought cooler temps but some lovely color leaves.  I was inspired by the pretty colors swirling around the yard. 

I used CAS(E) Sketch #143.  Fun, fun!

Living, Loving, Laughing 4 Life

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

The View from My Window
Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
