Back Again

Hello again.  I cleaned off my desk and this card was sitting on it so I decided to go ahead and post it.

It is by Newton's Nook.  I just love Newton.  I wish I was better at color cats.  I am planning on spending some time on practicing this summer..

Paper Shelter's challenge this week is hot or cold colors.  I am definitely a cold color person.  Very seldom do I use bright bold colors.  I lean more toward pastels.

I am going to use it in the following challenges:
   Jo's Scrap Shack - anything Goes
   Craft Challenge - Anything Goes
   Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
   Paper Shelter - Hot or Cold Colors

Off to fold some clothes.  Chat with you soon hopefully.  Have a great evening.


Hello and Happy Monday.  Today was errand day so I still need to do a few things around the house, but before I do that I want to post a card.

I made this one a couple of weeks ago at my weekend crop and I never posted it.  I really need to get my table cleaned off.  I have cards to post and cards to finish.  Plus I have a couple of new stamp sets to play with and I even got a couple of new copics.  I have got to find some time to play.....

I have enough Easter cards made, but that isn't going to stop me from making more.  Does any one want to exchange Easter cards?  I will exchange cards with the first 5 people who contact me.  My email address is

I just love how this bunny came out.  I love shaped cards.  I wish I had made more.  Every one who sees this one want it.  Oh well, I have a few more shaped ones I want to make.

I am using it in the following challenges:
    City Crafters - Is Any Bunny There?
    Fab N Funky - Anything But Square
    Simon Says Wednesday - Easter
    Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes

Hopefully I will be back in a little while.  Chat with you later.

One More St. Patty's Day one

Hello.  How are all of you?  I cleaned house Thursday and Friday so I would have time to play today.  I went to a card class this afternoon.  I had planned on coming home and cooking dinner and then heading to my craft room.  I don't know where the day went.

I did get one card done before I left and I did make one more card tonight so I guess I did ok.  Maybe I will get more done tomorrow.

This will probably be my last St. Patty's card for the year.  I tried to keep it simple and all on one layer.  This is a digital image from Power Poppy.  Next year, I want to print it bigger and put more detail into the coloring but I was working on simple tonight.

I am going to use it in the following challenges:
   Cute Card Thursday - Celebrate
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
   Craft Challenge - Anything Goes #11
   Di's Digitals - Lots of Green
   CAS-ual Friday - Going Green
   Crafty Gals - Make It Green
   Verse Stamps - Green

Off to clean my table.  I will try to post the card from this morning in a little while.  Have a great night.

Bugaboo & St Patrick's

Hello.  How is everyone's week going?  It is Hump day and I am so looking forward to the weekend.

I am still trying to finish up a few St. Patrick's Day cards.  This image is one of my favorite Bugaboo images.  The little bear is so cute. I just want to hug him.

As always, I am never going to get everything made that I want to, but there is always next year.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Catch The Bug - All Creatures Big and Small
   Cut It Up - Digitally Yours
   Di's Digital - Use Lots of Green
   Crafty Creations - Anything Goes

Chat with you later.  Have a great evening.

St Patrick's Day

Hello.  How are you today?  Do you change your chocks for daylight savings?  It is just a USA thing?  Any way, we do.  Normally, it isn't a big deal to me, but my husband and I was up late last night watching a movie and then I lost an hour and I am dragging today.  Oh well, that is way things go some times.

At the beginning of the year, I pulled out my Top Note die from Sizzix/Stampin Up.  I loved it when it came out, but I haven't used it in a while.  I want to use it some this year.  This is the second time, I have used it already and there is just so much you can use it for.

My husband and I are not Irish, but I am a crafter and I just have to make some St. Patrick's Day things.  So I cut out some top note die cuts and made these cute nugget holders.  I went ahead and cut out some for Valentine's, Easter,  Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, so you will see them again.

Off to put up my scrap paper.  The pile is getting pretty big.  Chat with you later.

Hello and welcome sunshine.  It is cold outside but the sun is out and it makes it look like a gorgeous day.  I just need to stay inside.

A couple of weeks ago, I pulled out my Denami Stamps.  Once upon a time, I loved the little chickies (ok, I admit it, I still love them).  I have so many of them.  I really need to use them more often.  You should see  a few more over then next few weeks.  I have the Easter ones sitting here.

It is hard to see in the picture but I added some glitter to each of the chickies.  I don't cover the whole chick, just the edge.  I don't like to clover their whole faces. 

There are lots of layers of green and yellow to match the plaid.  I tend to do lots of layers.  I just love all of the different colors you can add to a card with just layers.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Di's Digital Challenges - Lots of Green
   Die Cuttin Divas - Use Green
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
   Creative Knockouts - Anything Goes
   As You Like It - Single or Mult Layers
Well off to vacuum the house.  Chat with you a little later.  Have a great afternoon.


Weekend means play time

Hello and welcome to the weekend.  I hope to have lots of time play this weekend.  We will see.

I have been terrible about making treats for everyone at work, so I decided to put some thing together for St. Patrick's Day.  No one will be expecting it.  I have a ton of these tubes so I thought I would use some of them up.  I left it simple.  I cut different size clovers out of vinyl and stuck them all over the tubes.  Each tube has smarties in them.

I think everyone will enjoy them.  Chat with you later today.  Have a great day and weekend.
