Looking Good

I love this selfie of Dave and I from last December when we got our new glasses. (He wears glasses all the time while I only wear mine for reading.) I saw this sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap and knew that this picture was perfect for this sketch.

I am so proud of myself that I used all four of the sketches from Sketch-n-Scrap this month. They have an awesome prize from PinkFresh this month which would be great to win, but more importantly I got 2 pages done and cards made and sent out. Yay! I feel very accomplished.

I am also entering this page in Elle's Studio Challenge Day Work An Angle Challenge. Everything on this page is from Elle's Studio.  Another accomplishment is that I was able to enter 3 out of 4 Elle's Studio challenges this month....go me!!

Well I have a little free time this evening and I just might see if I can put together another challenge layout. I hope you are enjoying your weekend....I am.

Thanks Mary Kay

Recently an online acquaintance sent me something I really wanted and was having trouble finding. I thought that was so sweet of her that I wanted to make her a thank you card and I finally got to it.  This is just a clean and simple little card but I hope it will put a smile on her face.

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.

TGIF!!!  Bring on the weekend!

Every Good and Perfect Gift.....

I am part of a small community of online friends who craft together and share our lives together.  One of the ladies has been a tremendous encourager of me recently and I wanted to send her a card and a few little goodies to thank her. I found this sticker in my stash and knew it would make the perfect focal point on a card for her.

Thanks for stopping by....only one more work day and then it is the weekend....YAY!!


You Are Braver....

My husband and I work with a man who has been on leave fighting head and neck cancer.  It has been rather rough for him lately so I wanted to send him a card with some encouragement.  I whipped up this simple card for him and mailed it off a few days ago.

I will be right back with another blog post and another card to share.  Thanks for popping in.

I'm So Lucky

If there is anything that I love as much as coffee it is making coffee themed cards.  Here is another card from my card making marathon last Saturday.  And this card came together quite easily.  The sentiment and coffee cup image is from a from free digital printable from Julee Tilman of Verve stamps. The polka dot washi is old and from my stash and the coffee themed washi is a new purchase I just picked up at a recent shopping spree at Whim-So-Doodle in St. Petersburg. What an awesome store that is and I am not ashamed to say that I dropped a good sized chunk of change there.  Good thing I live 3 hours away! I also used the awesome and fun sketch from Kerry Urbatch for the Coffee Lovers Blog Sunday Sip and Share feature:

That's it for tonight....I will be back tomorrow to share some more.


So Egg-cited!

My daughter-in-law, Amy texted this picture to me on Easter morning of my youngest granddaughter Izzy and her excitement at the goodies in her East basket. I just love big sister Abby in the background looking on in amusement at her sister's excitement. I hate living 1000 miles away sometimes and always missing the little celebrations of life.  But when I get a cute picture like this it helps me deal with it better.

I used this fun sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap.

With this layout, I have used all but one of  the sketches from Sketch and Scrap this month and entered their challenges. And I have the last sketch laid out on my desk to get to before the deadline this month hopefully. They really knocked it outta the park this month with inspiring sketches!

I am also entering this page in Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge which for April was a Spring or Easter theme.

Thanks for stopping by tonight.  I will be back soon with another project to share.

A Simple Thank You

I don't know about you, but I can never have enough thank you cards. So in my marathon card making session last Saturday I made a couple and this was one of them.
