It’s November, the month of Thanksgiving.  I’ve been busy making thank you cards these past few weeks. My son collected money for the Crusade for Children for his Beta Club at school. So I made thank you cards for him to give everyone that donated. I used this really cute stamp set from Technique Tuesday. The stamp set is in the Frog Stamp Set.   I used some of the backgrounds I made the other day. Here’s my thank you card:

I’ll show you some other thank you cards I made in a couple days.  Thank YOU for stopping by.

Fun Backgrounds with Stencils

Hello!  Now that the craft fair is over I can finally play with my new stencils that I bought from A Colorful Life Designs. They are such fun. I bought 8 of them the first time I visited their site.  They are so much fun and addictive!!!

To make my background I used pixie spray-a must for stencils!  If you haven’t tried it, trust me you will love it!  You spray it on the back of your stencil. It leaves it a little tacky so it will stay in place while you apply your colors and still peel off easily and not hurt your paper.  Here’s what it looks like:

And here are some of the fun backgrounds I made with the stencils and digress oxide inks.  So much fun!!

Thanks for coming by and have a great day!!

Friday Friends!

Well it’s Friday and I’m thinking of the fun I will have tomorrow.  My best buds and I are sharing a booth at a craft fair.  I’ve been making lots of cards in hopes of selling a few.  This card reminds me of my friends - my wonderful therapists!!!

Of course as I’ve been making cards like a crazy person these past couple of weeks this card (Deep Red stamp) applies too!!  😂

Thanks for stopping by!  See you next time!

Have a great week!!

Well it's been over 2 years since I have posted.  
I'm going to try and start posting as least once a week - who knows maybe more often, but at least once a week.  I hope you stop by and see me!

These are two cards made from a Riley & Company stamp and Tim Holtz crazy dogs.

The sentiment is great words to live by:
"Learn a lesson from your dog.  No matter what life brings you, kick some grass over the crap and move on."  You don't even have to have a dog, but just know to move on!  I hope life brings you lots of happiness this week!  If something tries to bring you down, then just kick some grass and move on!  :)

Thanks for stopping by! See you next time! 


And I'd love to hear from you - please leave a comment!

It's WOYWW over at Julia’s Stamping  - For those who don't know it's "What's on your Workdesk Wednesday".  That's when crafting people from all over get to peek into the craft room and projects of other crafters.
Well it's been a few weeks since I've posted - WAY too busy lately.  My girlfriend from Costa Rico was in town, then I went out of town, and then this week my son started back to school.  So I haven't really been down to my craft room except I did make my Mom and Dad an anniversary card.  They celebrated 61 years on August 11.  Happy Anniversary again Mom and Dad - I love you!!!

Here's the card I made for their anniversary.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!!!


Oh!  It's my birthday!  Happy birthday to me!!!

It's WOYWW over at Julia’s Stamping  - For those who don't know it's "What's on your Workdesk Wednesday".  That's when crafting people from all over get to peek into the craft room and projects of other crafters.
Well it's been 2 weeks since I've posted - WAY too busy lately.  And it's been 1 month since I started the clean-up of my craft room.  It's still not done, but it's at least livable.  Of course things are stuck here and there so it doesn't look as messy - next I need to start going through and really organizing. If you need to remember the mess click here.
So here's some after shots - or at least after for now.  :)
Here's the same view as the messy shot.  As you can see the bookcase several containers of 12x12 paper - not in any particular order - need to sort and organize - what categories do you think?
And here's a view of the side with my Silhouette Cameo towards the back.  It's sitting on a drafting cabinet that's filled with the majority of my 12x12 paper - ok, yeah, I know I have a lot! 
And the still very messy desk.  But I'm getting there.  Oh, and wait you can't see really is a black rolly cart without the wheels under the desk that contains 6 iris containers which contains  - you guessed it more 12x12 paper.  So really it's no wonder I don't have it sorted yet!  I can't even find it all!!
OK.  And of course, must include a pic of my crazy Katie.
Thanks for coming by!  I hope to visit everyone one this week since I've been missing..again!
Have a GREAT week!

It's been a busy week. Not much got done. For everyone who wants to snoop just go visit WOYWW over at Julia’s Stamping Ground
I did move the big green chair out of the craft area. But first I had to figure out where to put it. 
The perfect place is where all the junk is piled on the air hockey machine. 

Here's the air hockey mess. 

And after getting rid of the air hockey game:

So now the big green chair is out of the craft space and I have room to move. 

Katie is happy the big green chair isn't piled with crafting stuff. 

Moving the chair leaves room in the craft area.  Next week you can see the improvement there!

Thanks for stopping by.  I love reading your comments!!
