Good morning, quick post here before I hit the road for this 18 hour drive. I knew I wanted to do this layout of my grand daughters. They are much older now but I had this picture in my stash. I even pulled out some old paper from  Tim Holtz that now I don't know why I bought it because I really do not like it at all but since it was pink I pulled it out. The layout that I used came from Granddivascrappyplace  I found this web site last week and started following.

Happy Birthday

Good morning, I am not sure what is going on with me but I have been sleeping in every morning and starting my day off so late and I hate that.

Unicorn Birthday

Image
Good evening, my sister sent me a message this morning asking for a unicorn birthday card for a co worker. She came down to pick up my nephew and I was like no problem. Well I kept thinking I needed some unicorn paper so I ran out to HL, Michael's and Joann's to my luck no single unicorn paper and I sure didn't need anymore 12x12 pads so I found the rainbow sheet and I like how it came out.


I am ticked though I went to Walmart and bought color ink for my printer came home printed the unicorn 3 times and no color so tomorrow I will be taking this malfunction cartridge back to Wally. I had to pull out the coloring pens to color her in with a little wink of stella dang now I am looking I should have added dew drops oh well hope my sister friend likes it.

Sketch~n~scrap

Image
Good evening, I finished playing along with Sketch~n~scrap blog hop over on facebook. I have so many pictures that need to be scrapped and I am kicking myself now because the majority of them have no dates on them at all. This is one of my grand daughters who is now in 1st grade so that tells you how old this is. I managed to get rid of a sheet of baby elements so happy for that. I just used some paper from my many piles of 12x12 books. I love how this layout came out.

the color is terrible but those baby hands are pic and the stars are yellow

This second layout I used a stencil and and molding paste along with some ink. This kit is so old but it will hopefully be used up this month.

 I just love working with a sketch and running with it

The other two challenges were  cards

Paper players challenge

Good evening, I can truly say the rain puts me in one of those moods where I can't do a thing. My whole day just disappeared and all I did was sit here in my chair. Right before it was time for hubby to come home I ran downstairs and made this card for the challenge over at paper players. I am trying to work on my Thanksgiving cards now since the crop was cancelled next week so I better get cracking since I will send out about 50 cards. No rain in the forecast for tomorrow so hopefully it will be a great scrappy day.

Tuesday

Image
How often do we struggle with masculine cards well here is one I really had a hard time with. I don't like to think to much about cards but this one just gave me the blues. I used a stamp for the truck from Stamps of life some old paper from K&Company. First I tried to use my scan and cut to cut the truck out but I really couldn't remember and when I was so feed up with it I just fussy cut it and I so hate that. I used some black enamel for the wheels and a die cut for the grass...oh well not my favorite but another card complete.

Happy Birthday

Today is my girlfriend KayKay's birthday and I got this card in the mail but it will not make it until tomorrow. I used a sketch from Cas(e) this sketch using scraps for the card. Today she turned 50 and next yr I will Lord's willing. This card looks so much better in person with the light giving the gold that bling look.

Good evening, I pray everyone is doing okay. I had to do a mad dash to get a card in the mail for one of my sister in laws birthday.

Stamp is from Hero Arts and this card has gone postal

Weekend fun

Image
Hello, lets talk about the weekend. I had so much fun with the virtual crop online with Creative Memories I really enjoyed scraping in my messy room just wish I could get it all organized and ready to really go hard and scrap. Hopefully this week. Well the first challenge Friday night was a two page spread and I pulled out some old kits in my stash and boy I tell you it is really sad all the kits that are just waiting to come alive with pictures 


The second challenge was a nice quick layout as well as you can see I am a simple scrapper I don't like spending to much time on a layout so these quick challenges are right up my alley. 

 The third challenge was a card with layers so I pulled out some vellum and I think it turned out okay
Saturday morning the challenge kicked out at 9 so I couldn't make the first challenge since my grand daughter Sunny had a game and Nana was there to cheer her own.


When I got home it was 30 min before the 2nd challenge ended so I made that one right…

About yesterday

Image
Yesterday was a terrible day first started out with me going to my doctors appointment late and they wanted me to reschedule when I was within the 15 min window so I told her I will find another doctor. Which I did and he got me in today. So after that I was so depressed I went and took me a noon nap didn't get up til it was time for hubby to come home then I went outside and started weeding the yard then I went to my little outdoor prayer room and relaxed.




I really love my get away spot. I have it all screened in and a ceiling fan....


then after dinner I went to my unorganized craft room and made some covers for my machines. At one time I wanted to make me a skirt out of this material but that never happened so now I have it to keep the dust out of the machines. Hopefully this weekend I will finish my room where I can really craft and create

Good afternoon, here is a picture I took back in 2016 when I was going hard to lose weight and it paid off. I went down to 128 unfortunate that isn't the weight for today or yesterday lol. I am determine to get back to that weight I have got back on my treadmill and bike daily along with weight lifting. It is always nice to look back and see how far you have came or have far you have falling so for me time to get back on the horse and make it happen again. I used Sketch`N~scrap sketch for the layout and I used colorbox Signature pad from my stasch along with stickers I dumped on the table waiting to be put up in its new place.

Tuesday Morning

Image
Hello, I am trying to get back to crafting but my room is still a hot mess. I emptied 33 medium boxes on my floor to organize and put up. I will see if I still have the photos to show you. But today I am showing you a quick card I made for the FB group creative card angels for a lady that should have been postal but it is done now. I used the sketch from over at Tuesday Morning Sketches and an Ali Express die that I had for a minute in my stash. I think this is a stampin up die for the sentiment along with the dollar tree paper pack.

First Project in my new space

Good morning, I pray everyone has enjoyed this 3 day holiday weekend, I know I have. My sister came up from TX and my cousin and her daughter came up to help me unpack and put up boxes. I am so thankful for family. Well my cousin purchased her a new suv this week and I was like we have to put something on it. She googled and found this image Blessed and I cut it out....love how it came out So I will be cutting another one for my walls since I am truely blessed


Then yesterday my cousin was telling me about one of her co workers how she has a gallon of water on her desk with a marker pen with the ozs of water she needs to drink. So I pulled out the computer and found an svg online and purchased it for $3 because my cousin and I bought these cups last year at Walmart and we have bought been slacking on our water intake so this is a great reminder and on mine I thought it was to big so I made her's a little smaller

Potty Time

Good morning, I finished this layout the other night but since this is my last day of my NC craftroom I better go ahead and post for I forget. I used the sketch from sketch~n~scrap. This is one of my grand daughters we were over my other daughters house and she went and pulled out her cousin under pants and put them on and that look she gave me. I called her mother and told her she is so ready to be potty trained. When we left I went straight to WalMart and bought her a pink potty. I put up my paper but I can't think which stack this came out of.
