Last day of august???




Yes, I am asking the question. Could it possibly be the last day of August. I just can't believe it. School starts in one week, labor day is in one week, the end of the summer is in one week. That is not enough time to finish my summer projects.LOL
I Don't usually like summer, but I must say this summer I've enjoyed the pool with my youngest and we had a lot of fun. The public pool closes on the 5th, I hope the weather is wonderful so we can spend the day there.
I guess I'm in the mood for owl's, my youngest son got a new build a beat at the mall, they had a super deal, one "bear" one outfit and one pair of shoes for 30 bucks, since my middle son spent 30 on a hat, I thought what the heck let him get a Bear. Well, and owl it's the cutest darn thing., He named him owen moon. So, this is a card in honor of our new family member. Here is a pic of the card and Owen!

Hey bloggers!


Hey everyone,
Hope you all had a great week, I took the week off. Well, I took a bit longer, because the Internet was down. Ohhhh the horrrrooooorrrrr....Verizon, had a blow out, so we were out of it, Monday I was sick, and played catch up all week. This weekend I got my niece all the way from Nashville, so I've been pretty busy.
I made some cuteness, and will get pics and upload as soon as I can.
Here is a pic of me with My boy & my niece!

Welcome to your next stop on the CFH Blog hop!!!



Hey all,
Welcome to my blog, I am a big fan of Cards for Heroes, and I'll tell you it's a honor to be a part of the card makers that support them and our troops.

I first started sending about 2 years ago, if that and I don't send 1,000's of cards but I do my part. I am happy to say that this weekend I'll be making Christmas cards with my mom for CFH. I can't wait. (I can wait for Christmas tho, I'm not ready for summer to be over)
This little card I made in a class with Heather Meeson from A muse. She's a great teacher, don't you love the simple design of this card?
Don't forget Christmas cards MUST be in by NOVEMBER 1, so get those Christmas stamps dusted off and rolling.

Have a great day and don't forget if it's 5 cards or 5 hundred they all help!
To start at the beginning of the hop please go HERE!

A green way to make a card!


I love the earth, I love how God, created such a fantastic place for us. I also enjoy doing my best to take care of it. I know as a paper crafter it's hard to not use paper and buy embellishments, but when I bought a bar of organic soap the other day I knew that the package would go on my next card. I used the raffia, and the fabric from the bar for this card. The stamp is from A muse, I love the way it turned out, and because it was wrapped in yummy smelling soap the card smells yummy too! LOL

Enjoy your day, I'm so glad it's Friday!

Good Wednesday,
Everytime I see this stamp I have to LOL, I love it. Reminds me of myself. I got this stamp at One Little Spark, and I'm glad she had it, cause I love it. Check out her shoes, are they me or what! (still waiting on my Toms, by the way the ones I got did not fit, and then they ran out of that style in my size...grrr)
Anywho, enjoy your day!

Sugar Nellie In the house!




Hey all,

This is another set of stamps that I think are just so stinkin' cute and fun to color. You can view the Sugar Nellies HERE!! Now, if you know me I like to add a little punk to some of my things, when the mood strikes. I happen to have been rak'd these images and this punk boy was one of the first I colored. I put silver glitter all over his guitar and tried to give him boy clothes, and I added a little blue to his bangs...Cool huh.
The other image, I also love and I used more of that paper from yesterday! Enjoy your Tuesday!

Chirstmas in August...


A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to spend some time at one little spark and take a class by the wonderful and talented (and another twilight geek) Heather Meeson, I have a feeling if Heather lived closer we'd be great friends. She's awesome, funny and so talented. She's very organized and has a lot of great things on her blog, so check her out.





During this class we used brand new a muse stamps, and copic markers. I love the designs she had created simple and clean. Love them!









After class her mom Pat (who happens to own the store), myself and Heater went out for some chow. We had a very nice chat and a lovely time. (thanks Pat for treating us, I owe you one)


Thanks for stopping in, I have lots on the blog this week. 15 cards to be exact, so come back and check them out!
