A little random...

I have many projects done, but just haven't had the time for pics.  I have just a couple cards here that I put together a while ago just for the heck of it!!

This is A La Modes Birthday Girl!

And this is just some shapes I had cut up on the ol' Cameo and put together.

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!

I trust everyone had a great weekend!!  I was able to finish up a few crafty things, and then clean up after myself.  It's amazing the mess that one little card can make!!  lol!

Today I am sharing a simple little box I made with my Cameo and a Saturated Canary image.

This image is called Secrets!
I have been meaning to color this for a long time,
glad I finally did!

This box is the Lori Whitlock A2 Card Organizer box.
I used a seriously old piece of MME patterned paper for it.  (I think it was MME...)
I distressed the image and used lots of burlap/woodsy type embellies.
The "Sup?" sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Slang Gang set.

Well, I am off to do some more sewing today!  Hopefully I will have some more projects to share with ya soon!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Burlap & Bouquets

It is Friday once again!!  We are winding down with softball season, and have about a month of Summer left!  I love having my girls home, but the constant cleaning.....oy!!!

Here's a picture of another image that I have framed.  The image is from Saturated Canary-

(hard to get a good pic through the glass...)
She is called Cali Girl!
I found this burlap covered 8" x 8" frame at Hobby Lobby
and knew it would be perfect with her!!
I used a bunch of items from my Paper Issues Swag Bag,
and several other items from the Fancy Pants Burlap & Bouquets
pad and flairs.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!

Just keep sewing.....

As some of you may have heard, I have decided to dip my toes into the sewing pool!!  I wanted to share just a couple of pics of some super simple beginner projects I have done!

Both of these were made using this tutorial I found- here!

I used some cheap pre-cut fat quarters from Joann's on these.  The second pic is just me adding on to the basic basket pattern given.

That's all for now!!  Much more sewing to do!

Thanks for stopping by!

Teacher Cards

I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!!  It sure has been raining here every afternoon!

I just realized I never share any of the end of the year teacher cards I made!  My girls have been lucky to have such great teachers over the years, and I feel it is important to let them know what great job they are doing!!

I used Frappi Anya (TGF) for Maddie's teacher.
The Thank you stamp is from Taylored Expressions Graphic Greetings line.

This is Twirl Anya from TGF. (retired)
Same thank you stamp.
This was for Hunter's para.

And lastly is Reeta from TGF. (also retired)
Same thank you stamp.
This was for Hunter's teacher.

All of the school themed paper was from a pack that was from Michaels or Hobby Lobby. (sorry, totally can't remember which!  lol!)  

Have a fantastic Sunday, and check back with me this week for some pics of my latest sewing attempts!!

Thanks for stopping by!

The Summer is whizzing by!!  I haven't done half of the crafty things I wanted to yet, but hey, there is still a little time...right!!??

Today I am sharing a Saturated Canary card that is one of my favorites!!  I used some colors that were out of my "norm", and I really love how it turned out!!

This is Honey.
The pleats in her skirt take a while to color, but it's totally worth it!!

I used a TON of stuff from my Paper Issues Swag Bag on this!!

That's all for now, got a busy day of ahead of me!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Gwen In Bloom

Happy Monday to you!!  I trust everyone had a long and celebratory weekend!!

I am posting a pic today of a card that I had made a while back, but never posted.  It can get a little confusing when you make a card/project for someone, but you don't want it seen on your blog before you give it to I hope this isn't a repeat!!  LOL!

This stamp is Gwen In Bloom from Some Odd Girl.
The sentiment birthday stamp is from Taylored Expressions,
one of their Graphic Greetings stamps.
I used a notebook paper die from Paper Smooches.

She is one of my very favorite images from SOG!

Great start to the weekend!!!

Anyone else have a July 4th hangover!!??  No, I didn't drink, but I ate pretty much anything I could get my hands on!!!  LOL!

The day started out with a trip to the theater to see How to Train Your Dragon 2!!!  What a fantastic movie!!  The first one is one of my all-time-faves, so I was worried this wouldn't live up to my expectations.  It was just as good, and maybe even a hair better!!!  There was a sad part of the movie where Maddie and I were a blubbering mess and had ran out of napkins!  (but hey, that's what sleeves are for, right??!!)  And yes, I totally gorged myself on popcorn.  (i am a bit of a popcorn freak!)

The rest of the day was spent with family, and ended with the best fireworks show ever!!!  Lots of smiles and laughs to be had!!

Maddie & Hunter.  
(my SIL attempting to photo-bomb, but just ended up looking cute!)

Chris & I.

Here's a quick card to share today-

Went for a "shabby chic" look on this card.

This is a Saturated Canary image-

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

Lil' Sunshine

Everyone ready for the 4th???  I'm NOT!!!  Need to do some serious grocery shopping tomorrow, along with pretty much everyone else I know!  LOL!  The plan is to start early......

Just wanted to share a bright and happy card today.  It's an older image from Saturated Canary, and I just love her.

This image is called Thank You.
She is such a doll!

This was a serious hodge-podge of papers.
A couple of the papers where some cute 3x4's that
came in my Swag Bag from Paper Issues, along
with the wooden sequins! (those are genius!)
I crocheted the orange flower, and the others were from
my stash.

Hope this brightens your day!!  In case you don't hear from me before the 4th, please have a safe and happy holiday!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
