Here's a little Flair....

Here's a real quick post before going to bed for some much needed rest. My friend and I tag teamed on this card. She did the embossing with some instruction from me and I stamped and colored the images. I can't remember which pattern from the Originals book this was, but we just threw it together to show off the Stamp of the Month called "You've Got Flair". Hope everyone has a great Friday and I still have more to post later can you believe it... LOL!

Until then....

Be Blessed!

How about a little MOJO....

My friend's birthday is Friday along with her husband's and my mom's so I needed to get my mojo going. I decided to use the Mojo Monday sketch and make this card. I really like the way it turned out. I'm just sorry it took me so long to get on the Stampin' UP! in colors bandwagon last season. I also like the stamp set called "Cheep Talk" from SU! I know I'm a CTMH consultant, but I'm and equal opportunity Scrapper. LOL!!
Hope everyone had a great hump day and is on the downhill slide for a great weekend. I have more to post, I just hope I'm not to lazy to do it. LOL!
So until next time....
Be Blessed!

I have actually been crafting, but.....

I haven't taken any pictures of what I have done. I have actually made 5 pages and should be finishing up some right now, but I have other things on my mind. I thought I'd show you a picture of my little girl in her Knights in Armour outfit. Our church has recently started a class for the kids on Sunday afternoon. The have a Bible study first and then go to the basement and learn some Kung Fu. The couple who started this are awesome Godly people and the kids enjoy it so much.I just think Kassidee looks so cute in her costume. First they learn how to put the Armour of God on when they go out in the world and then they are taught not to start fights, but to learn to protect themselves if someone ever attacks them. I enjoy watching them and really hope that Kassidee learns more about our wonderful Saviour. I can't wait until the day the Holy Spirit fills her heart and leads her to salvation. She has already started asking about different things that are said in church so I pray it will only take time and she too will be saved from sin. I love my little knight and everything she does. I will always support her in whatever she may pursue. I just pray God puts his hand on her and leads her through her life.

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July and will remember what it really means. Thank God for this wonderful country I can praise him openly and not be scrutinized. I hope to be back soon with some artwork posts until then.....

Be Blessed!!!

Finally a LAYOUT!!!

I have a workshop tomorrow night and I finally got a layout done. My girls wanted to do the July "workshop on the go" this month because most of them went to the zoo over Memorial Day weekend. I changed it up a little bit because I was supposed to use the "Sweet Baby" stamp set, but used "It's a Zoo" instead.
These pictures were taken at Grant's Farm in St. Louis last July. We went with my friend Kathy, her husband, and their grand children. We really had a great time and I got some Great pictures.
The weather here in Southern Illinois is very hot and HUMID! I know it has been raining a lot, but I think I would rather have the rain and it be cool than it be sunny and humid. When it's this kind of weather all you want is lay in the pool and relax, but unfortunately I have to work and the pool is not ready yet. James started on it tonight so maybe it will be ready for our vacation in about a week.
Hope everyone has had a great Thursday and is gearing up for a great weekend! We are having a sleepover on Saturday night so it should be lots of fun. Just hope Kassidee can control the green eyed monster... LOL!
Have a great night everyone.
Stay Cool and Be Blessed!

Some SWEET Blog Candy

I was just blurfing around and came across this blog. Stampin' Caz over at A Stamping and Chirping Corner is offering up some great blog candy. She has hit over 200,000 hits on her site and is sharing the love. Her birthday is also coming up on the 12th of May and this is another reason to celebrate. So go check out her blog, She has some awesome stuff.

My silly little girl got her daddy's hats out the other day and couldn't decide which one to wear. So I guess to make it easier you should just wear all three.
Hope everyone had a great day and is gearing up for a great weekend! If I don't get back on here before Sunday I hope all the mother's that are reading this has a great Mother's day. I know I am on the look out for a flowering almond for my mom, and they seem to be hard to come by. I also can't wait for another beautiful Saturday and that means lots of YARD SALES!!! :)
Have a great night and.....
Be Blessed!

3 2 1... Blast Off!!!!

I have just been randomly picking out picture and scrapping them lately. These pictures were taken at Six Flags 2 years ago. James and I took turns riding the rides with Kassidee. She was 3 at the time. I of course had to ride the Marvin the Martian ride because he is my FAV-O-RITE cartoon character. I don't know why he is, but I just like that little green guy.
Anywhoo, I used some more Stardust paper for this layout and who would of thought I would have used so much "boy" paper (that's what my workshop girls call it) for my little girl. I think you can dress any paper up for a girl, but it's a little harder to do for a boy. I guess God did had a plan for me when He blessed me with Kassidee. He knew my little pea brain couldn't figure out how to do boy layout's. LOL!
I hope you enjoy your weekend. I hope to hit some rummage sales tomorrow and get the garage cleaned out. So I can get my scrap area set up good.
I hope everyone has a great National Scrapbooking Day tomorrow and I hope to see you back here again soon.
Welcome to all my new followers and thanks for all the comments everyone has been leaving. I love hearing from you. Even if all you want to do is say Hi!.
Glad you stopped by.
Be Blessed!

Love to hike!!

Well I got to be creative once again tonight. We went to a benefit
supper tonight for an Amish boy who had got kicked in the head by a horse. This happened some time back, but the hospital bills are piling up. He was taken to a local hospital and the air lifted to Cardinal Glennon in St. Louis. He has improved greatly, but he still has headaches and he says he gets befuddled. That sounds like something my grandpa used to say. It's funny to hear a 16 year old boy talk like an elder person.
Ok on to my page. We went hiking in West Virginia in April of 06 and I have just now got around to scrapping to pictures. I used Stampin' Up! Sticky Cuts on this LO with beads. I just love those Sticky cuts. The rest of the paper is from CTMH Rustic Trail Paper Pack. I loved this paper and didn't get another pack before it retired. Maybe I'll come across another pack someday. I do however really love the new Back Country Papers from CTMH.
Once again it is getting late and I haven't even started my daily reads yet, so I better sign off for now. I have more to post tomorrow so come back soon.
Please keep the Amish boy in your prayers and have a Great Friday!
Be Blessed!

A Quick Post

I had time to make a layout today after work and before church tonight. It was kind of rush job, but I like what it looks like.

The brown man came to my house yesterday and I finally got my Daydream paper. I put of getting it for so long and now I wonder why I did.

I hope you all enjoy my work and a big thank you to all of you who are following my blog. It makes my day to read your comments. I enjoy reading each and every one of them.
I hope everyone has a great Thursday and is gearing up for a wonderful weekend.
Hopefully I can get my DH to help clean out my scrap room/garage.

Have a blessed night!

A Good Book and some Blog Candy.

I know it's been awhile, but I have been reading "The Shack". If you get a chance to read it you should. I'm only on chapter 6, but I just started it last Thursday. I took it camping with me and I do have to say it is a pretty good read.
Just want to tell you about another blog candy I came across @ Corrosive Creations By Janet It's some pretty awesome candy go check it out!
Hope to chat again soon!

Another Stardust Layout!

I made another Layout using the Stardust paper pack from Close to my Heart. And since I have a dancing queen I thought the Super Star title went well with these pictures also. Like I said in the previous post Kassidee never stops moving, dancing, running, jumping, etc., etc., etc... She really has a lot of fun when we go camping or even when we are at home. She stays pretty busy all the time.
We have decided to go camping this weekend and I can't wait. It is supposed to be BEAUTIFUL this weekend (high of 82 on Saturday). We aren't taking the boat yet, but probably next time. So a lot of fishing from the bank and bike riding. Kassidee also has a birthday sleepover on Saturday so James and I can have a little romantic weekend. LOL!!! He'll probably be romancing the fish! LOL!!! This will be my last post until next week, so everyone have a great rest of the week and weekend! Oh yeah tomorrow is a very big day also. Kassidee goes to Kindergarten registration. She's growing up way to quick!!! :)
Have a great Day!

Dancing Queen....

I had a workshop yesterday and we did the Stardust layout from the Workshop on the Go from Close to my Heart. The example in the guide was of a soccer player. Since I don't have a soccer player, but a dancing machine I decided to title my layout as Dancing Queen. In the journaling I said that Kassidee is my dancing queen even though she's not 17, but only 4 1/2.
I think this girl has been dancing ever since she was in the womb. LOL! She never stops moving even in her sleep. LOL! These pictures were taken at Rend Lake while we were on vacation last year. Hope you enjoy your Sunday.
See you soon,

Just a Quick Picture.

Hi all! I know it has been awhile since I posted, but I have been extremely tired this week. I don't know why maybe a bug or something. I thought I'd share a quick picture of Kassidee's photo shoot this past weekend, and I'm pretty pleased with the pictures. Here's just one of the many that we had done. Kassidee just loves Scott ( my friend who does the pictures) and she always does exactly what he tells her to do. I can't wait to scrap some of these pictures, because I think they will look so good with some pretty spring paper. Well gotta run. Hopefully I'll have some stuff to show you later this weekend.
Think SPRING!!

A Very Full Day, But Always Time For A Card!

Well here is a real quick post.
I had to make 2 anniversary cards tonight so I thought I would make them pretty easy, but still with a big impact. We were so busy today and it still isn't over. We have to get showers and the Easter bunny still has to come tonight too. Here is all we did today:
1) Kassidee and I went to get her pictures made. So we were out of the house by 9 am. When we were pulling out of the garage I thought I was dragging something under the blazer, but when I got outside it still felt funny. I get out of the car and see I have a flat tire. :( I go back inside and yell at James to tell him it's flat and he gets grumpy. It's a good thing that we have 2 cars. So I jump in the other car ans am on my way. Then...
2) I get call from a lady who was having a rummage sale yesterday and it was pouring down rain so she postponed it until today. I bought a couple of SU! stamp sets for $5.00 and thought that was the deal of the day!! Anywhoo, She called to tell me that they still had the Polly Pocket things Kassidee wanted. So after the photo shoo we ran back to the rummage sale and ended up with My Little Pony instead. Then..
3) We get home at about noon. James is still grumpy because of the tire and he is hungry! We then go to my Mom's house drop off Kassidee and go do some bunny shopping. First though we have to get the car to the shop to get the tire fixed. We drop it off at Wal-Mart and walk over to Ryan's for some lunch. By the time we got done eating and walking back to Wal-Mart the car was done. I get the stuff I need for Easter dinner at Mom's and we get our bunny shopping done. Then...
4) We go back to Mom's and start making the cake and the broccoli and cauliflower for tomorrow. Plus we visit for awhile. James watched the game with Dad and he seemed happy and not so grumpy, because he was full, the tire was fixed, and the Cardinals were winning!
5) We head home at about 5 pm and then I have to take pictures of all my flowers so Mom can see them tomorrow. The neighbor boy comes over and him and Kass play a little shadow boxing and of course I have to take pictures. Then...
6) It's time to color Easter eggs!!! James set up a table in the garage and away we went. Kassidee had to bring all her Build-A-Bears out there because they were watching a movie. ;) We finally got done coloring eggs about 8 pm. Then.....
7) I finally got the time to make this card for my friends who are celebrating their 30th anniversary this week. Also a couple we go to church with celebrated their 35th anniversary today. We were so busy that we didn't have time to squeeze in the reception today. Oh well maybe she'll forgive me after I give her this card. LOL!
So that sums up my whole day and boy was it a doosy!
I hope each and every one of you have a Blessed Easter.
Glory to God... HE IS RISEN!!!

Chris's Blog Candy....

Chris is offering this stamp set from Sweet and Sassy. It is called "His eye is on the sparrow".

She is celebrating our Savior and all he has done for us. He is the Rock of all ages. He took away my sins so that one day when I meet him face to face he will be able to look on me and see my light. I am no longer that black sinful Carla anymore. He has washed me white as snow.

Thank you Jesus for all you have done for me. You have gave me a loving family, a good job, and everything in between. It's all yours God. Hope everyone had a great Thursday and is looking forward to a beautiful Easter weekend.

May God bless you in every way possible.

Mojo Monday #81 and So Sketchy Sunday #8

Well I had a little mojo this afternoon after work and I thought I'd get a couple of cards made for some challenges. The first one is for the for the Mojo Monday #81 sketch and the second one is for Mary's sketch challenge over at On Life and Creating. I also used the April Stamp of the Month from CTMH called "World's Best Dad". I can used the cards for my board to try and sell a few of these stamps at my next workshop.

I really liked this stamp set because I don't really have any masculine stamps, but this foots the bill. Well I need to go get ready for tomorrow. Kassidee is going to her first real sleep over so I gotta go pack. Hope to hear from you soon.

Keep Stampin' and Scrappin'


Tuesday, April 7, 2009

I can't believe it's been a week...

since I last posted anything. I feel like I'm in a creative rut. I hope to get to the garage to get some scrappin' and stampin' done. I have to get my pages done for my next workshop next weekend. It would be really easy just making time to do it. Maybe if I didn't read so many blogs... LOL! What I would do if I didn't get my daily reads. Maybe I can look through my files and find something I haven't shown you. I think I found something....

You know I love the frogs and I made this little card as a pick me up for a co-worker of my DH's. He always tells me she is kinda down on life and I had made a Christmas card for her that she loved. She had told him that she had lost it and wanted to know could I make her another one. So I made this little diddy and she loved it. I'm so glad I can use my talent (LOL!) to make someone's day.

Hopefully after work tomorrow I can get my juices flowin' I have some card sketches that I need to do and I have them laid out in my head, but I can't seem to get them on paper. LOL! Sooooo until next time, Keep Scrappin'

A Couple of Challenges from SNS Blog Hop Day #1

I follow the Sweet n Sassy blog daily and every month they have a release party. This month they are doing the challenges a little different. You have to go to each DT member's blog and look at what they have made. Today they had 2 challenges. One on Chrissy's blog and the other on Suzy's blog. Suzy's had the sketch challenge and Chrissy had a challenge to use birds on a card. I thought about just making one card for both challenges, but what fun would that be? LOL! For the first card I used The stamp set God's Beauty and Thoughts and Prayer's by Stampin UP! I used Garden Green, Goldrush, Colonial White, and Black CS all from CTMH. The ribbon is from a creative basics pack, but I can't remember the name.
The second card has the Spring Song stamp set from Stampin' Up! and the paper is all CTMH. As you can see I'm and equal opportunity Scrapper. LOL! On the second card I finished the inside and that is something I have never done before. I think it turned out OK.
I just love hummingbird's and I thought he needed some sparkle, so I used my FAVORITE Stickles. I love all things that glitter and I have totally became hooked on these babies.
Well it's getting late and I probably ought to get some shut eye. Oh yeah Korin from Sweet N Sassy is giving away the 4 new release stamps to the winner of the challenges. I hope I get lucky...
Don't forget I have 2 spots left in the Pay it Forward post. The next 2 that leave a comment gets a prezzie from me!
Hope everyone has a great night wherever you are!

She holds the key to my heart!

Thought I'd do a real quick post today, I didn't sleep well last night and am going to hit the hay pretty quick. So I thought I'd share an old layout from my stash. If you have seen this on the Close to my Heart Bulletin Board I'm sorry for reposting but like I said I'm pretty tired so you have to look at my old stuff. LOL!
Hope everyone had a great Tuesday and are looking forward to the weekend. It won't be long now. Tomorrow we are half way there!
See you then,

Sweet N Sassy Design Team Challenge And Korin's Blog Candy!

This is the Sweet and Sassy Design Team challenge. It is a Sketch Challenge this week and I thought I would play along. Here's my creation...........

This card went together pretty easy and my DH likes it better than the clown card I made for his grandson. Sooo I guess I give this one up from my stash and put the clown in. LOL!

Korin of Sweet and Sassy stamps is also offering some great blog candy too. Check it out here.

Mojo Monday # 80

This is the Mojo Monday Sketch this week. I finally got my mojo going today too. This is what I came up with.

I really felt like it was springtime today I guess that's why I choose these colors. I'm really happy with the way it turned out and it is just another birthday card to add to my ever growing mother's day stash. This is my plan to try and get 30 birthday cards made for my mother-in-law so she will not have to get out to buy or send birthday cards for all the family. If I don't get 30 made I will have a big dent in it at least. I guess she will get however many I get made. LOL!

Hope everyone has had a great Monday and is enjoying the weather wherever you are.

Could this be a sign of spring???

We got home from work today and I thought I'd walk around and look at my flowers before going in the house. I was so excited to see that my peach tree was in bloom. Let me tell you a little story about this courageous little tree. LOL! My Mom planted this tree several years ago from a peach pit after she got done eating it. She threw it out the back door into her flower bed along with all the other rubbish. You know what I mean by rubbish; banana peels, potato peels, corn husks, etc. etc. etc. Anyway this little pit started growing right beside her house. Her plan was to dig it up and replant it, but her landlady passed away and the ladies nephew bought the farm. Well, to make a long story short they had to move and I got the tree. Yeah for me! I have had this little baby going on 2 years now and last year it produced 2 peaches. I know that isn't a lot, but I've never had a fruit tree. I was so excited. Now today I see these beautiful blooms and am so excited for this years CROP! LOL!
I do plan on crafting again soon, thought I would today, but there hasn't been enough hours in the day this week. We have even been getting home earlier too. Well Friday is right around the corner and that is definitely a craft night! Plus as an added bonus I don't think we are going anywhere on Saturday so I will be a scrapping fool then too.
Hope everyone had a great Wednesday! Only 2 days to the WEEKEND!!!!!
See ya soon,

Some great blog candy..

Sarah is offering up some great blog candy jump over to her site and check it out!!

A Great Christmas!!! 12x12 LO

Yesterday at our craft day at church I wish I would have got a lot more done, but I was happy to fellowship with the women that was there.

I did get 3 complete LO's done. I just took every piece of paper I owned and just about every embellishment I owned too. I also took all my pictures and the way I decided what to scrapbook was to just grab a pack of pictures and start. I guess you can see I grabbed Christmas 08. Even though later one I seen Christmas 07 pictures that needed done too. LOL. There's always another day. All in all I had a great time and cannot wait until we have another one.

I hope everyone had a blessed Sunday and I will see you again tomorrow!


Huge Magnolia Giveaway...

There is a great blog candy giveaway over at Pretty Pressings. She is giving away a lot of great Tilda's. Don't walk run over to her site and check it out...

A Little Birthday Card

Here's a real quick birthday card I made for my husband's grandson. His birthday party is in a couple of weeks and I thought this turned out really cute. It was just some scraps I found laying around as I was getting ready for craft day tomorrow at church. I need to be asleep right now, but had to get things out and ready to go for tomorrow. This is my first real crop and I had no idea what to bring so I loaded just about everything. I thought I'd make cards tomorrow for my mother-in-laws mother's day gift, but decided to go with scrapbooking because I'm so far behind and I wouldn't have to take all my ink too. LOL! Hope everyone has a great weekend and I'll try to post some more on Sunday...

Relax for So Sketchy Sundays....

Mary over at On Life and Creating has a sketch every Sunday and I have decided to play along these last 2 weeks. I think I'm getting addicted to Sketches!!! Anyway here's the sketch for this week...

And this is my take on it

I have a friend who has retired recently and I was needing a good retirement card for her and i think this might count!!

Thanks Mary for introducing me to these sketches. Everybody should give it a try at least once and show Mary some LOVE for doing these!!!

Hope you all had a great Thursday and only one day 'til the WEEKEND! I'm on a count down, because it is craft day at church on Saturday and it is ladies only.. We are having potluck and I hope to get caught up on some scrappin'

Love to all,

CBCC # 30 and Spring has Sprung!

This is my second post for today so make sure you scroll down to see my Mojo Monday attempt...

Here's my take on the CCBC #30. It is also a color challenge that has been started on the Close to my Heart Bulletin Board by Kelly Ratcliff. The colors this week were Black, White Daisy, and Sorbet. I used the March stamp of the month called Butterfly Wings. You can purchase this stamp until March 31. I used Just Blooms Big Pinks for the flower and stamped them in Sorbet. I also used the Congrats stamp set from Stampin' Up! I heat embossed it in white. I really like the way this card came together, but looking at it more closely I see that my squares on top are not even...Oh Well, I guess my head was cockeyed when I did this! LOL.

Now for the rest of the story...

Today was a beautiful day and Kassidee and I were cleaning out my flower bed. She gave out on me pretty early and decided that playing with the dogs was more fun than working. I was just a raking away and pulling up leaves and old plant when I seen this.

I reached down to pick up this mess and it moved...

I now have to put off cleaning my beds and mulching until these little cuties are old enough to get out of the nest and make their way into the world. I ran to the back yard and got Kas and she loved them and wanted to keep them and raise them. We have been through the whole rabbit thing and I say leave them WILD! We now know that boxers and rabbits don't mix. Ugh! I took some great pictures and Kassidee got to tell everybody she seen about them. I know she will check on them everyday now and make sure they are OK. All in all it was a great day hanging out with my big little girl the adopted rabbit mom....
