Springtime



It's raining again here in Ohio. I'm hopeful that sometime soon we'll enjoy sunshine and flowers. Until then, we'll have to put up with the raindrops. This sketch is from the Sweet Sketch Sunday for this week. The paper is CTMH Mayberry. I thought it was perfect for a Springtime card. Enjoy! Supplies: CTMH Mayberry Paper, CTMH Wonderful Charms Stamps, CTMH Smoothie, Olive, Cocoa Ink, CTMH Opaques, MFT Rose Die, Organdy Ribbon

If Friends Were Flowers



I'd pick the Gals on SCS Recycle thread! I've only been hanging out with them for the last month or so but they sure have inspired me to lots of new crafting ideas and goodies! Not to mention I've found lots of fun stuff going through my stash looking for things to share...like these CTMH Acrylic Cards. I always have fun when I get them out but of course, they got pushed to the back of the basket and forgotten. Well, they were back in play tonight. This fun card sketch came from Card Patterns Sketch 115. The best part is the Ribbon Flower, I think. I just discovered a product called "Glubers" for making these and I've used up my first package. Tonight I got them out thanks to the inspiration from Card Ideas Challenge to make your own flowers. Woot! woot! Out came the Glubers and the Ribbon. Another shout out to the H2H Crew for the Button Challenge this week, they were still laying on my desk from playing earlier!

Fun for Monday!




Ahh, yes I actually got to stamp on a Monday! Wow! I just happened to be off work today so it was the perfect day to actually do the MOJO Monday 190 Sketch on Monday! Woot, woot for me. I also still had out the lovely CTMH Sophia paper pack I was playing with this weekend and I got out the CTMH pink buttons to send to my friend Laurie. Poof! The stars aligned, and I decided that all those yummy goodies were out for a reason and here's the card I have to show for it. It was also just perfect for the H2H Challenge this week - 2 for 2 on Monday! Now that's the start to a good week. Supplies: CTMH Sophia Paper, CTMH Stamps Blessed, CTMH Ink Pear, Goldrush, CTMH Pink Assortment Buttons, Misc Organdy Ribbon and Charm

Another For Mom



Happy Mom's Day to all Mom's. Today was very sweet as my hubby and sons left me to play the afternoon away in my Scrap/Stamp room. I was able to get several cards done and even a couple scrap pages! It was awesome to have "uninterupted" time to play! The window was open and there was a nice breeze and in between the mowers going, I could hear the birds. So very nice. My Mom, bless her heart, drove over 2 hours to my Sister's house to spend the day with her. My Mom is wonderful like that...if you can't come to her, she'll come to you. I wish I were closer. I wanted to tell my Mom again how much I love her. She SO enjoys getting cards that I make for her (every new one is her FAVORITE!). This week's is done with colors I would choose --- Bright! I got into my new CTMH Sophia WOTG. This Workshop-On-The-Go comes with an Idea Page for scrapping and cards, a stamp set, and some buttons. I ended up using the MOJO Monday 189 Sketch. I know my Mom will find a spot for this one on her counter, I can't wait to send it to her. Supplies: CTMH Paper Sophia, CS Tulip, Pear, CTMH Stamp Sophia, CTMH Tulip Ribbon

For My Mom




My Mom told me that her favorite papers I've been using is the blue/greens I got not too long ago. So out came the CTMH Wings CB pack for her Mother's Day Card. I also wanted to use my new CTMH Blessed Stamps. I did stamp "Happy Mother's Day" inside the card. The card was from MOJO Monday 187 Sketch. I definitely hope to use that sketch again soon. I am almost out of the Wings CB papers but I've made SO many fun cards with this pack. I may just have to order another before it is gone for good :) Supplies: CTMH Wings CB, CTMH Blessed Stamps, CTMH Ink Juniper, Cocoa, Misc Charms

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.
