Birthday Pig

Image
Yesterday was my sister in law Penny's birthday. She collects pigs and this is what I came up with.


I used my Cameo to cut the pig's head and peachy keen stamps laffy taffy for the face. The paper is Teresa Collins Sweet Afternoon and the stamp is from CTMH stamp Life is Tweet and of course I put it on an action wobble.

Facebook Project Life card swap

Image
Wow where has the time gone. I have been so busy with work. I have been working extra hours so that I can have 3 day weekends to spend with my wonderful hubby who is working out of town so I take the 4 1/2 hour drive one way every weekend to spend with him. So that has left no time to scrap and I don't have anything for my blog sorry.

So I had joined a group on FB called project life swap and the one that I joined was the purple swap. I joined at the first of the month so that was plenty of time to do the project at least that is what I thought lol.
Purple is one of my favorite colors so I jumped right on the band wagon. Sad thing is I have been so busy that I waited right up to the end to get these in the mail so it isn't my best work but I don't want to be a flakier so here is 3x4 cards. I had to make 10 and I used for the main card DCWV stack and since I am in Dallas with hubby I can't tell you what the name of the 12x12 stack it came from but I used the stamp from …

SVG Purse

Image
I so wanted my purse to come out like my friend Danita's she used Coach paper and I went with Louie Vutton but for some reason my print and cut would not come out right so I had to use this Simple Stories paper and I am not really happy with it but it is done.





Oh well until next time

A little this and a little of that

Image
Well I have been feeling bad about not playing with my expensive toys so I needed a new gym bag. I went to Joann's and found this zebra print bag on sale 70% so it was about $2 but honestly I could have made it but I didn't to lazy. I bought a file in the silhouette store of workout stick girls and scanned it into my embroidery machine and this is what I came up with.



You know the saying it you don't use it you loose it. On the third girl I walked away from the machine and the thread got caught and before I knew it I had a mess. I couldn't line the design up so I left it as is she isn't as thick as the other two girls.
I just wasn't satisfied with using my embroidery machine I looked at that expensive heat press machine collecting dust so I pulled out a workout shirt and vinyl it up with my stick girls.
now for some reason my new blade wasn't working and I don't believe in wasting so I ironed the girls right on my shirt. I ordered that new ratchet blade…

Hello all, yesterday I was so excited that my order came in and all I could think of was tomorrow I will get to play with it well that hasn't happen. It is almost 11 pm and I will be at the gym at 5 so I really got to get in the bed. I will be going to my sister's in Mississippi tomorrow after work so it will be next week before I can play with my new toys.
I am going to love this set with my PL


Stamp of the month
Chipboard pieces

Happy Birthday Tonya

Image
Today is my husband niece  Tonya's Birthday. I finished this card before her birthday but since it has to be mailed off it will get there a day late. I have got to get better with getting my cards out on time. I saw a blog posting over birthday candles and I knew I had to scrap lift it. I thought I saved her blog so I could give credit where it was due but I am sorry I can not find her link now.


The stamp is from S&P Company and I just love it with this card. I even dusted off the imagine to cut the cake or at least I tried to my imagine still doesn't cut so I had to cut it by hand. 


This is also from the same stamp set

Happy 4th of July

Image
I hope everyone is having a happy and safe 4th. We are going to my brother in laws for an outing. I have to remember to get my bug spread since we are going into the country and pray I don't bring any ticks home with me. So I am sure I will have a some pictures tomorrow. Well today we are at our Kansas house and hubby was out playing with his toy and I wanted some pictures on it since I have never set on the baby.

This is his old M John Deer that he restored and love so much.
Tomorrow is my other brother in law John's birthday so I made this card for him last night. I used CCR and Cameo together to complete the card. When we go to the country everyone loves to pull out the guns and start shooting so I thought this card would fit John perfect. He served in the Army and now he is a superintendent at a local school in Kansas. 
The gun is from Father's Day Cartridge

This is from the silhouette store


Be Safe and Be Bless this 4th
