College Football

Hello.  Just a quick one before I head to the shower.  I am working today and I only have an hour before I leave. 

This is an old project.  College football season is here.  I have had this schedule on my freezer for three years now.  Each year, I just print a new schedule and I am ready to go.  My son has the same one on his refrigerator.  This year, he needed a whole new set, the old one didn't make it through the last move.  I took the new set (they are the same except this one is a little bigger).  I purchased the pattern from the Silhouette Online store.  It is one of my favorites.  The big elephant is a decal I have had forever.

That's it for now.  Hopefully I will be around after work tonight.

Hello.  And welcome to another weekend.  I hope every one gets a chance to relax and at least enjoy part of the weekend.

If you are a regular on my site, you know I don't use a lot of purple.  It just isn't one of my go to colors.  A couple of sites have yellow and purple challenges so I decided to see what I could come up with.  It is more yellow than purple but it is there.

The flower jar is a Bugaboo digital and the Birthday Wishes sentiment is My Craft Spot (closed now).  I added some Winks of Stella to the flower that I popped out.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Sugar Pea - Mix It Up #11
   Cupcake Inspiration - Purple, White & Honey
   Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch #366
   Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes #124
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
   MHK Designs - Purple & Yellow

Off to vacuum before I get ready for work.  Chat with you tonight hopefully.

Favorite Thing Ever

Hello.  When I think Summer, I think ice cream, but really I can eat ice cream year 'round.

This little cutie from Bugaboo is one of my favorites.  Something about her.....The filagree stripe is a Spellbinder border.  I had to cut out part of the middle to get it to fix on the card. You can't see it but I also added Winks of Stella on the ice cream and the little heart.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Catch The Bug - Bingo
   Dream Valley - Pretty In Pink
   Hiding In My Craft Room -  Yummy
   Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes #326
   Freshly Made Sketches - Sketch #251

Off to clean my craft table.  Have a great night.

Give A Crafter A Cookie

Hello and Happy Thursday. 

It is time for another Give A Crafter A Cookie challenge.  It is hard to believe it has been two weeks already.  This one is going to be a great one.

It is sponsored by Fred, She Said Designs and Kitty Bee.  I can't wait to see what every one comes up with.  This will be so much fun.

I went with a design from Fred, She Said.  Isn't this puppy so cute. 

I kept the card pretty simple and added paw prints on the background square.  I thought the flowers in the pink stripe with with the flower the puppy was holding.

Make sure you come over to Give a Crafter A Cookie and enter the challenge this week.

August 3rd

Hello.  It is actually August 3rd but I don't want to post this card until after my sister's birthday so you aren't seeing it until August 23rd.  Happy Birthday Connie.  I hope you like your card.  It was real hard to keep it a secret.

It took me hours to get this file together.  It came in a mega bundle from Paper Creators.  (I can't find the exact file in their shop.)  Their files come as jpgs so you have to trace then and then cut them.  But I could get a clean trace so it took forever to clean up the files.  I think I did pretty good.  I really want to figure out how to make a generic one so I can add what ever theme I want.  Some thing to work on, I guess.


Chat with all you later.

Black and White

Hello.  I really thought I would be here sooner than this.  Oh well.  Things happen.

A really quick one.  When I saw the black and white challenge at City Crafter's, I knew I wanted to make this card.  I saw it over a year ago on Pinterest and I just love how simple it was.  You can't see it on the picture but the butterfly is textured.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   City Crafter - Black and White
   Love To Scrap - Anything Goes
   Crafty Hazelnuts - Anything Goes

Chat with you later.

Quick and Easy

Hello and Happy Monday.  I am off to day and I so looking forward to some play time this afternoon.  I have to straighten the kitchen and then mop it.  Hopefully it won't take long and I will have time to play before I cook dinner.

I am still playing around with my Distress inks and the blending of colors.  I promise I will get off of it soon.  I still need to show my sister how to do it.  Hopefully tonight.   My digital was a little bit for this one but it looks ok.  I think the image is from Little Miss Muffet.  I have another idea for it so you will see it again over the next few weeks.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Freshly Made Sketches - Sketch #250
   Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes #99
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
   Paper Creators Craft - Keep It Simple
   Little Miss Muffet - Anything Goes

Off to the kitchen.  Chat later.
