Hang in There

Good evening, real quick post. I am battling this darn depression so I am getting behind on my posting and crafting. I made this card for the FB group Creative Card Angels for a young man that was/is going thru some things. I am hoping that this card will lift his spirits and the inside message to let him know that he is not alone at all. 
I used the 6x6 stack Family by Echo Park I am not sure how long this kit has been in my stash. I found this stamp at Michael's

I used May May's inspiration stamps for the inside.


I got the sketch from Paper Players and I just love how it came out.

Sketch challenges

Image
Good morning, I have two sketches here that I used from an old kit from My Mind's Eye Indie Chic This is a picture of my grandson making silly faces at my son's football game a few years ago. This kit had everything I needed and more so you will see more layouts or cards coming from it.
This sketch is from Sketch~N~Scrap






This sketch is from Stick it Down but it is also from the same kit.  This was the last summer my husband spent with us in Oklahoma before moving out to North Carolina. Our grandson really enjoyed riding the lawn mower if we were back home for the summer he is big enough now to cut that for me now.

These were a sticker from a Dollar Tree pack

Fusion card

Image
Good evening, a quick post here that I forgot to upload. I made this card with the challenge over at Fusion  and I can't tell you how I am loving all these challenges I have been participating in to keep my mojo and supplies going. I pulled out an oldie Teresa Collins Carolina Breeze for the base of the card and then I went to two pads my BFF Treva gifted me for the banners. The stamp was from another BFF Sharon a few yrs back on the Julie Nutting stamp Party Girl.

Paw Sympathy

Image
Good morning crafty friends, I am not an animal lover but we had a request on the FB group Creative Card Angels and someone requested a card for someone who lost his dog. I took the idea from my BFF friend Treva on her card. I used my Cameo to cut the paws and the card I watched a video to make my card bases so when it came time to make cards I just used it to the cause. 

The inside stamps are from stamps of life

Tuesday Morning Sketch

Image
Good morning, thank goodness it is the end of the week. I am ready for a weekend break. I used Tuesday Morning Sketch to create this Valentines day card for one of my grand son's. I need to get a move on them and get them mailed off with the goodies in them. I have a tote of scraps near my desk and I went in it to create this card. My one friend told us about the nuvo paste and I went to my local scrap store and she didn't have it but she had some BoBunny on clearance. I bought it and tried it on the top layer with the circles and I love it so I have to go back and get the rest of the colors. I used Stamps of Life happy valentines day stamp

Ky'Lynn

Good morning, I finally got back to a layout. I used the sketch from sketch~n~scrap to make this of my grand daughter Ky'Lynn. My daughter posted this on FB and I can just see a curious little baby looking for her Nana, to bad Nana live so far away but thank God for face time.. I went into my stash for this one. I bought this pad so long ago it was fallen all apart. DCWV Jung-a-low Bung-a-low Baby. I used stickers from my stash and it really worked out for me.


look at that curious face

I got that little cloths line from Meka at the crop last year along with the chipboard baby

Martin Luther King Day

"The time is always right to do what is right." Martin Luther King

Good afternoon, real quick post before I go to work :( and happy MLK day. I wanted to make me a shirt to wear to work today but I don't think I will have the time since I need to run down and cook. Here are my two quick cards I made last night for some challenges. First one is from Freshly Made Sketches  I am trying to use up what is on my table and right now it is the same pad from Couture creations - post card Vintage Rose Garden. The stamp is one from HSN in that bundle with the little die cut machine and the flower is a die from China on ebay.

The second card I used Fab Friday sketch along with the same paper pad. I used a butterfly die from China as well. I am trying to add to my stash for the FB group so when a card is requested I will have one ready to go.

Happy Birthday Kendra

Image
This is a busy month but it is the last of my kids birthday. Today is my oldest daughters birthday. Hard to believe she has turned 30 and hard to believe I have a child that old. One thing I wouldn't want to change was having my kids so young. Things were rough but since I don't feel as young anymore I am happy they are all grown. Love you baby girl
I used my silhoutte to cut the shoe out of the frame of this card. My daughter's  favorite color is green so I pulled out a stack from my stash from DCWV the Glitz Pastel really pretty to bad the lighting didn't do it any justice.  


 This is an old picture of her.

Jalen 19th BD

Image
Good afternoon, these work hours are killing me taking away from my family and craft time but life goes on. Today is my baby birthday. Jalen is currently in college in Kansas and I will not see him only facetime or marco polo. My baby boy turned 19 today I am not sure where in the world the time has gone to. Funny thing at work I am surrounded by 18 & 19 yrs old that remind me of my son matter of fact it is two Jalen's that work with me that I have grown fond of. any way I just want to wish my baby a Happy Birthday


Today I am posting a card that went postal the other day to a lady in the hospital from the creative card angels group on FB. I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches and I love how this card came out. I used a stamp from CTMH that I purchased at Tulsa CKC last year and it is my first time using it but not my last. The 6 x6 pad I am not sure but it is on my desk.

Happy Birthday BFF Treva

Image
 Today is one of my BFF's Birthday Treva, Treva is such a sweet giving loving lady. I am so happy we meet on the cricut cruise along with Sharon and Danita. We email each other everyday and Treva and I talk everyday on my drive to work. I thought I try my hand a little different card I saw on YT a Z fold pop up card. I remember one day Treva and I was talking about my other BFF Shanta video and Treva wanted the tea cup Tim Holtz die and I saw it and Treva said she didn't want it but of course now she wants it but I haven't seen it so I thought this card would be a reminder of it. We also talked about me not using flowers on cards so added not one not two but three on this one lol.




This was at a restaurant we meet half way between my new home out here and Treva's place.  This was during one time I came out for a visit when I was still working out in Oklahoma. 

and this was us in July of last year when hubby took me to Virginia for two nights and we were in Treva'…

Purrfect Birthday

 Good morning, here is another birthday card and I used the sketch from Fab Friday, Again I am using Honey Cake paper and I pulled out the stamp and die set from Stamps of Life for the cat.

Freshly Made Sketches

Image
Good afternoon, sorry but I am hitting you with a lot of postings today but I really am down to the wire for uploading these to the blogs. My son's birthday is Friday so this card will be going postal along with some cash for him at college. This card is not my favorite because I should have just stopped with it's your Birthday stamp but no I added SON to it and I don't like that. I tried to line it up on the stamp pad and it looked straight but all the spaces are just to much. (after watching a video this morning, I saw her stamp on acetate so I will be using that) The paper was from a very old stack from walmart so it is very thin paper but I am sure my son will be tossing it as soon as he take the cash out lol

this sketch is from Freshly Made great sketch
