Bring It On

Oh Yes ... it's that time of year when we celebrate upcoming Holidays ... especially with Close To My Heart Holiday Expressions.   You're going to see several of great ideas for the CTMH Holiday Expressions.  If you're hopping along, you just came from Haley's Blog






I had the opportunity to go to Convention so I've had the Holiday Expressions Idea Book for some time.  As soon as I saw the Scrap Page using our new stamp set "With You" (Pg 20) I knew then what pictures I was going to scrap. These were taken last Thanksgiving.  Our first time going to our oldest DS House for the holiday since he couldn't come home.   We had such a wonderful time together.  You realize that all "traditions" are made to be set aside when there are new ones available.  This was one of them, LOL!   Good times!




There's so many wonderful new stamps and papers in the Holiday Expression!   Keep hopping along to see more creative ideas from our SOTM Blog Hop Team!  Your next stop is Brenda's Blog

Thankful to have You

Hello Friday!   Welcome to another fun week of colors at Color My Heart Color Dare #210.  If you're playing along with us this week,  we're using Fern, Eggplant, Desert Sand, Peacock and Colonial White.    Have fun!




This week was my oldest son's birthday ... aww!  I love that boy so much.  I made this card while thinking of him.  He's one of the loves of my life and he's a great young man.   He's all grown up and lives in another state so I won't get to see him until today,  since I already sent him a birthday card, this is the one I'm giving him with his cake, yay!  


Thanks for stopping by!

It's Time ... National Stamping Month Celebration

Woohoo ... time to Celebrate National Stamping Month!   Welcome to our Blog Hop!   If you're hopping along with us,  you just came from Michelle's Blog  
 


I had SO much fun playing along with these super adorable, versatile little stamps.  You won't want to miss out on the fun!  I decided for the Hop to use these with other papers than the cards the pack comes with since I found some cute Card sketches ....  to play along with.




This is my FAVORITE since I also got out the watercolor paper and paints!   I used circles for the Challenge over at The Paper Players.




Well,  this one is pretty "high on my list of faves too" because I used the new Sea Glass color and of course the adorable new ribbons along with the vellum sheet from Uptown Fundamentals.


Ok, well this one was fun too with more ribbon and Sea Glass along with my previous favorite color Thistle ...I think this is such a cute stamp too with the fun fonts...


Fun right?   I hope you get the opportunity to Hop along.   Our next stop is Terrie's Blog.  If you get lost, go HERE for the complete list.

My Favorite Time of Year


It's sort of like Christmas and your Birthday all rolled into one very fun day of the year ... New Idea Book launch for CTMH.   This year is no exception, lots of fun new stamps and papers to create with.  If you're  hopping along, you just came from Melinda's Blog


We're celebrating new products from the 2016 New Idea Book and Catalog.  I will say, if you enjoy bright colors, you'll love this idea book as it has lots of new fun colors and prints in the Paper Fundamentals.    I've been playing with my new packs of paper and enjoying the new designs.  I actually went to convention so I wanted to use the new papers to scrap the excitement of seeing the new book for the first time in the first layout






Of  course,  not only playing along with the papers for layouts but they make great cards too!  I used MOJO Monday #459 to finish a couple cards I needed to get out




I hope you enjoy hopping along with us.   The next stop on our Hop is Terrie's Blog.

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.
