Hurray.....

content discovered on Thursday, June 13, 2013

for all the graduates of 2013. I told you about Chad in my last post, so I thought I'd take a minute to share the card that I made for him. Actually, it is the second card. I wasn't crazy about the first one. I saw this layout on a card that Shari Carroll did over at the Hero Arts Blogand I LOVED it. It is so simple, but has so much interest with the lifted panels. Be sure to click the link and take a look at Shari's. She has more texture by using dry embossing and it has more of a feminine feel. Plus th...

A Day Of Celebration.....

content discovered on Sunday, June 09, 2013

and sweet memories. My great nephew, Chad, graduated from high school, so yesterday was the party to celebrate the occasion. First though, I would like to tell you about this young man. When Chad was born he weighed just over 3 pounds. I remember the first time that I visited him at the hospital, it was like holding a blanket of air with tubes coming from various parts of his tiny body. As I sat in the rocking chair holding this tiny bundle of sweetness, I quietly prayed. I prayed for God to protect ...

Sending Hugs Across......

the miles was a fun little card to make and ever so easy. Let me give you a little tour of it. This card came together by hunting. That means that while "hunting" for items for another card, I found some goodies that had not seen any crafty love for a while. The only thing that I didn't hunt for was the stamp set. It is Ruby Rose, the newest set from Papertrey that was designed by my sweet friend, Dawn McVey. Not only did she design the stamps, but she also designed a die collection to go along with it. ...

As Usual......

I'm a day late and a dollar short. As you know Papertrey holds their monthly blog hop on the 25th of each month. For May's hop, Nichole gave us several color combinations and you were to choose one along with a favorite floral set, then create something pretty. Being the sweet person that Nichole is, she generally gives us the challenge on the 16th, so therefore we have plenty of time to create. Isn't that thoughtful? I know! So why is it that I didn't get a card made in time for the hop? I wish I could ...

Monday, May 27th......

Memorial Day, the day we celebrate all of those that have served and continue to serve our country. I watched a news report about the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier and was amazed at the training these soldiers go through to have the honor of being a guard of the tomb. (If you click the link you can read about the process of their training and also the process of the changing of the guard.) I was left with a sadness for all of those young soldiers that left their home and families to serve and protec...

Putting My Patterned.....

paper to work. Yep, you read that correctly. I guess I could say that no stamps were harmed in the making of this card. I used only two stamps.....the letter "H" and the letter "I". Now maybe you could shed some light on this for me. Why is it that while I am sitting on my couch I think of ideas for cards, but let me get in my craft room and those thoughts are totally out the window. And before you suggest that I keep an idea journal, I do...........some times. But when the journal isn't "with" me, I ass...

HelloThere.....

This little card was very simple to make. I started with the Mini Blooms stamp set, stamping it along the side of the small panel using new leaf ink. Next up I used the coordinating dies to layer in some spring blooms. I used my cuttlebug swiss dot folder along the top portion of the white card stock as a back drop for my focal image, which I layered on to a piece of harvest gold card stock. I added gems and enamel dots along with harvest gold satin ribbon as my embellishments. I stamped the sent...

I Received So Many.....

content discovered on Friday, May 10, 2013

pretty sympathy cards when Doug passed, but this one really caught my "creative" eye when I opened it. I immediately wanted to create my own version. I loved the soft colors with the bold embossed print at the top and the soft print at the bottom. For my creation I used the Cutting Garden set and I just had to pull out one of the Zing embossing powders recently released by Papertrey. Here's a close up of that gorgeous floral pattern on the card that I received. ...and here is a close up of my e...

Let's Take A Little......

trip to California. As you know, Whitney took me on a fun trip to California and I finally have the pictures edited. So I thought that instead of showing you all 4,247 photos (yes, I am once again exaggerating) in one post, I will periodically do a little post of various adventures that we had while we were there. And with that in mind, we'll start with our first day. Our flight left CVG at 9:00 am and we landed at LAX around 11:00 am. Gotta love that three hour time difference. HA! We collected our l...

A Little Something.....

from me to you. I am a very lucky girl to have such great co-workers and a great boss. I was able to spend the majority of Doug's last days with him at the hospital, with just allowing myself time to run home and take care of my girls before heading back to the hospital. Those days were very precious to me and I'll never be able to thank them enough for covering my duties that week. Shortly after the funeral, Whitney and I flew to California for a few days, so again they covered me at the office. So whil...
