Thinking Of You

This standard size card is done with the new whoops a daisy paper and the May Stamp Of The Month from CTMH. I added texture with my paper scorer on the breeze cardstock with the white core. Sanded it to show the texture. Also on the white cardstock base I sponged purple ink on the edge.

Chirp Chirp This is a card challenge from Paper Popsicle. We were suppose to use up scraps. I had a few Crafty Secrets images left so used those up. I really think the brown paper embossed with the wood texture gives the card the punch. All cardstocks are from SU

Wow another sunny warm day here. It is strange not really spring, just jumped from winter to summer. Hope we get a spring along the way. Sure makes work easier for me when I am servicing accounts in and out of the car all day. Raining days are the pits, since I look like drowned rat.

This is another creation with the same papers as the last few days I have shown. All from CTMH. The peril button from Walmart. Simple and so pretty.

Are you noticing a theme here? Another card using CTHM Silhouette papers and CTMH Stamps. Also used a scalloped punch for the saying.

In the next few days you will be seeing all the cards from this set of cards I did. topping it off with a card holder for a gift. Make sure you check back tomorrow.

It is so nice to sleep in on the weekends. Today my oldest has a chicken bar-b-q for scouts. It is drizzly on and off. They said they had to sell 400 chicken halves. Good luck boys!

Now onto stamps and papers:
This purse was in a kit from Memory Works in 2007, and I just got around to making it. It holds a small album but that was not finished yet.

Hello, another nice warm day here and it is going to be sunny again. We did yard work last night. Cleaned up leaves around the landscaping and trimmed shurbs. What a mess we had. I think the neighbors were glad we started cleaning so they can do theirs. With a slight wind all the leaves travel. Now to finish up the side yard. My allergies were kicking in last night so I am not to excited to do another round.

What a wake up system we had today. The bed was wiggling and waving since we have a waterbed at 5:40 from a 5.4 earthquake. Keep in mind we are in Northern Indiana. Pictures were rattling on the wall and I thought it was rain.

This card is another club project we did this past month. All products from CTMH. Special note: we used liquid glass on the cupcake. Also used a scoring blade to score 1/4 inch around the pink paper( has white core) for a border and then distressed it with sand paper.

This morning I want to share with you a card we had did for club and my shows this month. Everything used is from CTMH. Note the little rhinestone in the swirl on top. Just a little bling. This card was inspired from my upline. Darling card and really easy to make. So easy to change this card into wedding to everyday. It must be the papers.

This card says it all, I am starting to feel old and when I look at others they look so young. Was talking with a girlfriend yesterday about youth. In my mind kids never grow up when I do not see them often. For example I asked what size her daughter is wearing. I was suprised since I thought in my mind she would stay a baby forever. Where does the time go? When did my baby grow up so big?

I just noticed the petal on the flower is bent over in the photo below. Sorry.

I bought this stamp at Hobby Lobby and papers from Daisy D

Good Morning!
Just a quick share this morning. The punch tin which came in a Kit from Pinecone Express. I decoupaged the paper on to the tin.

A few weeks ago I was at a weekend crop. I was asked to do a workshop item again this year. So we did the File Folder Tag Book. Take a 12x12 file folder scored in half and then into the smaller sections for the tags to slide in. Papers and stickers from CTMH. This is a simple verison. So many of the file folder tag books are so dolled up. Hope you enjoy this idea.

Good morning

Todays I have to get ready for Hostess Club, about 11 ladies coming. We are also looking to the skies for storms. Here is to mild weather, I am not a storm lover. I think I would feel safer with storms if we did not have large oak trees all around us. The fear of them falling on the house is high on my list. We have had a few years back 1 huge tree fall on the back of the house and that tree brought down 2 more oaks with it. Then about 5 years before that we had another fall from the neighbors that just missed the house by 25 yards and landed across the deck and crushing the kids swingset. So you now know one of my fears.

These two photos were taken of the boys having a watergun fight. The weather was about 67* that is balmy for us so far this year. They had a blast. The tallest child is my son. They are all the same age.

Today is shoe buying day here. There is strong odors around the boys shoes so it is time to replace shoes and bleach the stinkies !

This is a Coffee Bag book, I used those paper bags with windows in them. Sorry to have a flash on the photo.

Tuesday, April 8, 2008

Colors used Lilac Mist, Sweet Leaf, Buttercup, Sweet Pea BGTP all from CTMH.

Happy Monday~!

Well can you believe it I am posting for another day in a row! Here is a clue........... I did a bunch of cards and pages and took picks and loaded them onto a cd. Then able to post from the laptop instead of the main computer which is always taken over by the kids. We have 4 computers and I should at least have access to one that actually works well. LOL
This is another card using Worth Repeating Stamps, darling! I outlined her in yellow inside the lines to give her some color and then outlined her in a light gray marker to add depth.
Now off to figure out why my other photos will not upload.

Sunday, April 6, 2008

Another sunny day and birds are chirpping. I would say spring is finally here. The kids are on spring break this week and sleeping in. Of course one of them has a cold. If my memory is right the same boy was sick last spring break and he said it sucked to be sick on break. LOL Hoping we all do not get that cold. If I am going to get it, it will be on Wednesday since I have a show that night with a new group of gals.
This card was a project we did for club last month. We used : Angel Whisper stamp set from CTMH Colors: Sunflower, Hollyhock, Olive cardstocks and Inks. Sanded the cardstock to show the white core. Added a button to the center of the flower. Simple little 4x4 card.

Saturday, April 5, 2008

Good morning! What a sunny weekend we have in store for us.

My weekends plans are to prepare for a CTMH show for early next week so I am going to be hiding in my stamp room over the weekend a little. Will have to take photos of those items created and post them next week.
Today's photo is a baby thank you card I made for a friend.
I used a older- CTMH stamp Baby Buggy stamped in Grey Wool Ink Colored with Buttercup Marker and highlighted with Sunny Yellow. Trimmed with Grey Wool Marker on the edges. Cardstock is Buttercup and embossed the checkered design with the Impressor Mat then sanded to show the white core to the paper. Added a white ribbon to accent. I thought these were darling.
