My Crew Everyday

Image
Hello, I haven't down a layout in awhile and I sat at my desk and did this quick layout using Sketch~n~scrap layout. We celebrated my oldest daughter, son, grand daughter and grandson that we lost also my Aunt Dora who isn't in this layout. I used an old set from Teresa Collins kit that is still next to my desk. I went in my hoard volt and pulled out the thickers for the title.
I honestly don't know why it is so hard to do a layout when it just takes me a few mins...I really need to do better at preserving my memories. This was a rare occasion when I have all three of my kids and the grand babies in one spot. Zaiden the grand son we lost is even in the picture on the wall behind me so this picture is truly one for me to treasure.




My Aunt Dora in the pink sweater and my cousin LaChanda in the front....Family is such a blessing we really did enjoy ourselves that day

Hello, quick drop in. I need a card to go postal in the morning so I picked this sketch from case this sketch to make this quick card. I used some paper I bought on clearance at Hobby Lobby this week it is a summer pack from Echo park but the more I look at it looks like Christmas but oh well it is going postal. I used a new die I got from Ali Express for the Happy Birthday

To Be Kept by Jesus

Image
Good evening, I had asked my sister what was her word for the year and she gave me this phrase....To be kept by Jesus and I loved it. I used an image I purchased from SVG silhouette ONDemand FB group for the black girl image and made my sister a cell phone case and a bag for her water bottle by using the sublimation machine. You will also see this on a tumbler I am making for her but it is still turning right now.



I love how it came out and hopefully my sister will also

Good afternoon quick post here, one of the ladies on the FB group creative card angels has a birthday tomorrow although this card will not making on time. I just barely got it done before I run out to the doctor. This sickness is no joke. Last night I had the chills and body aches so bad it scared me so I said today I was going to the doctor and when I called my doctor he has nothing available or any flu kits. Right now I am having full body sweat so no I must go to urgent care and wait but at least I will know if it is a cold flu or what.

Challenge over at Scraps of Color

Hello crafters, I know it has been to long since my last posting. I don't know why it some times feels like a job posting for me but when the developers didn't update the blog app on the phone it is terrible for me to send my pictures to google drive and for some reason not all my computers will pick up my pictures so I just say forget about and next thing I know it has been weeks since I have posted. Oh well
here it goes I used a combination of sketches from scrap our stash  to finish this layout of me when I went to Atlanta and got to visit MLK church and the place he was raised as a child. I just loved it. I used an old pack from Theresa Collins for the paper and some thickers in my stash

Good morning, I feel like I am on a little roll here with a simple card a night. I needed another birthday card for this month and this will go postal today and arrive on time yeah me
I made these cards of last yr using Mary's sketches. I did like she said and I cut all the bases up and put the pieces in an envelope so when I need a card I just have to glue and add an embellishment if I want with a stamp and I have a card so here it is simple but done

HE IS

Image
Today I got a call from a friend I haven't spoke to in years and every year on her birthday my notification pops up on my phone and I will send her Aunt a FB message and leave my number well today I got to speak to her. She is always on my mind. My friend has Huntington's disease and the last time I saw her I could see the effect it had on her but to talk to her on the phone today just broke my heart. I mean it has effected her speech now. I know we have the best doctor in the world so all I can do is call on HIM. I pulled out my Maymay stamps and this one called at to me (He Is) I used the sketch from cleanandsimple to put this card together.

If you believe in the Lord as are healer can you please add my friend Bashana to your prayer list....thanks in advance because HE IS the healer

Happy Birthday

Tomorrow is my Aunt Dora birthday so I am on my way to drop her a gift off today so I used again the sketch from my favorite place sketch~n~scrap to make her card. I used an old pad Lost & Found Madison Avenue for both of these cards this morning



This card was based on the sketch as well. I needed one for the FB group Creative Card Angels for a lady that lost her mother. So sad that right off the bat we are making sympathy cards

I pulled out a old stamp from Stamps of life ladybugs2love (glue is still wet but I need to post and jump in the shower and hit the highway since I am running so behind but I did want to make these cards and post before I left)

Be Bless and safe

First layout of the year

Image
Good Saturday morning, I had some visitors yesterday my cousin and her two daughters. So we came into the scraproom and they made layouts for a school project and I decided I needed to do one as well since I haven't done one in a long while. I went to my favorite place sketch~n~scrap for a sketch. I used a kit from Tuesday Morning I picked up last year called Jack & Jill by Lori Whitlock. I knew I wanted it for the boys but this picture was on my desk so I made it work. 

Have a bless weekend

With Sympathy

Good evening, I am showing a card that was hard to make. One of our crafty friends oldest son was murdered on New Years Day. I just can't and don't want to even imagine the pain and hurt she is going thru right now. But other crafty friend but out a request on FB to send her the cards and she will send them on to Queen B. My prayers go up to her and her twin boys that are still at home and the rest of the family as they go thru this rough time ahead

RIP sweet grandson

Today would have been my grandson 4th birthday. We lost him only a few months into his life. I just know that he would have been amazing. I can't wait to get to heaven and see my baby we miss him so much.


I wanted to make a memory block years ago but I finally got around to making it and I took it to my daughter yesterday and she loved it. I used this picture with daddy and his monkey to trace his precious little face.
this is the other miracle God blessed my daughter with after the death of Zaiden. It doesn't take away the hurt in there heart but she sure softens it for them. She knows who her bubba is 



Happy Heavenly Birthday Zaiden Nana loves and can't wait to see and hold you again

Happy Birthday

Good morning, I pray everyone is off to a great start this morning. I promised myself I was going to do better with my birthday cards this year and I am off to a great start this one is going postal to a great nephew on my husband side. I used a old pad that I told myself I want to make base cards for the winter so when I needed one it would be read to add a image and sentiment. The die is one of the unbranded one from China the sentiment is an old one as well. 

Be Bless
