Challenge over at Scraps of Color

Image
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 know it has been a few days since I have posted but life got in the way. Here is a card I enjoyed creating using my stash. I used some stamps from Fun Stamps Journey for the background and the sentiment.

Happy Birthday

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

Birthday Layout

Hello, what about this crazy weather we are having. We will be in the 60's this weekend and I can't wait :) Last week was my grand daughters birthday and I wanted to make a quick layout for it. I used some paper from ctmh called Chalk it up and I used my cricut to cut out the title Birthday Princess. I used some dies for the banner and the layout was done

Good morning,my BFF and I decided we were going to join and do the 52 Christmas Cards Throwdown  so when December rolls around it would not be such a stretch to get all the cards out. Here is my first one for the year.

My goal is to use the scraps from last year.

Good morning, I thought I better make hubby his card early. I made the mistake of not making him one for Christmas and boy did I hear about it. So his is made and I will but it up and this way I can tell him I thought of him first before the grand-kids this time lol.
I used an old pad that is almost gone and Anna Griffin Die for the word Sweetie
I just love these simple layouts

Good morning, today is one of my BFF birthday Treva  love you sis enjoy your day

This card was a first for me. I don't care for 5x7 cards but I used a Anna Griffin die that has been in my stash a couple of years not open and those resin pieces I made years ago the blue flowers was in my stash from yrs ago as well and that metal piece so everything was from my stash

I went ahead and sublimated her a kitchen towel...I had all intentions of making my BFF this for Christmas but it didn't happen so I made it for Treva BD



This was Treva and I first meetup when we had moved to NC....I sure hate we moved back to Oklahoma. I miss my girlfriends out East..Hopefully I can make a trip out sooner than later

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

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
