Count My Lucky Stars


I wanted to send a couple 4th of July Cards and today's Mojo Monday 145 Sketch was just PERFECT for this! I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to use the Acrylic Cards I had purchased just for a fun card like this! The layers were alittle tricky to make sure the adhesive didn't show but once it came together, it turned out cute. The H2H Challenge was to make something Patriotic so this card worked for this challenge too! Now to get them mailed...All Supplies CTMH: Acrylic Scallop Circle Cards, Paper is Blue Ribbon, Ink Indian Corn Blue, Cranberry; CTMH Sparkles, Big Brads, Stamps Classmate Alpha and Lucky Stars

Something New...


So I found this great thread on SCS about using your Cricut for fun creations. I've really only used mine for swirls or titles for scrap pages. Thanks to the inspiration I found looking through some of the blogs linked to the thread, I decided to use my Cricut today for the card. I used both the H2H Color Challenge & Christian Paper Crafts Sketch Challenge (CPCST62). Supplies:

Paper CTMH Key To My Heart, Juniper, Sorbet, Tulip CS, Stamps CTMH A Tweet, Ink CTMH Juniper, Creme Brulee, Sorbet, CTMH Big Brads Black, Cricut George & Basic Shapes

More Mojo!


Tonight I had time to spend some quiet moments in my Scrap Room to finish up some cards and pages. I'm still playing with Veranda Creative Basics. These colors are so wonderful and fun to play with. The sketch is from Mojo Monday 144. All Supplies CTMH: Paper Veranda Creative Basice, Creme Brulee Ribbon, CTMH Sparkles, CTMH Stamp Treasure, CTMH Ink Olive, Juniper & Creme Brulee

It Came Together!


One of the June Card Challenges on SB.Com was a color challenge. We were to use Yellow, Gray, Black and White. I wasn't sure I could use those colors but as soon as I saw the MME Paper I found in my misc papers bucket, I knew it was perfect! I got this cute pad of papers from a Secret Sister last round. It's all good. My card is done. I also got to use my new "vintage" like stamps from CTMH again! Supplies: SU! CS Summer Sun, Basic Gray, Basic Black, MME Printed Papers; Stamps Live Inspired, Happy Journey; Misc Ribbon

A Trip Down Memory Lane


I found these pictures in a box I was sorting out and knew they would work for one of the Sketch Challenges on SB.Com I'm doing this month. This was a FUN layout to do as it brought back lots of great memories of the "Red Ranger" moments in our house. Both of my sons enjoyed this costume! Go! Go! Power Rangers!

Father's Day Card Fun!


I seem to have found my crafty MOJO! It must have come back from vacation! It's not doing my "extra sleep" need so good though, LOL! I did need to get a Father's Day Card done so it would arrive on-time. I used the Mojo Monday 145 Sketch which worked great! I wasn't planning to use these colors but the Challenge at H2H this week to use Scraps so these are the scraps I had to work with. I like how it turned out though so that's all that matters!

Mojo!


I wanted to play with my new CTMH Stamps! I also have the goal to start trying to do more card sketch challenges as I'm thinking that the more I practice, the better I'll get at putting the cards together. Right now, if I'm not casing a card I struggle so I trying the sketch challenges will help me, I think! This one is for

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!

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.
