A Card for My Grandpa

Happy Wednesday Everyone,
I’m going to visit my family this weekend. I made this card for my Grandpa. I thought he might enjoy a weekly joke and updates on my life. He enjoys when I stop by and always tells me a story about what we did when we were little. Update: My daughters’ wedding has come and gone, & it was a lot of fun. We had such a great time…we joked that the wedding celebrations lasted all weekend. Here’s the card info and challenges I did this week. The card sketch used for this card is from Card Scraps.
I combined this card for the following challenges:

Card Scraps - Sketch
Hand Full Of Stamps - Use up that Stock
Caardvarks - Mono Chromatic
SEW MANY Challenges - Anything Goes
Our Creative Corner - Blossoms
One Stitch at a Time - Flowers

Card items used:
Green diamond paper from My Minds Eye “Where the Heart Is” paper pack
Center strip of paper is one of my scraps from K&C “Sea Glass Stripe Flat Paper”
Prima Green Flower
Both brads in flower and flower brads made by Making Memories.

Beautiful Weekend

This weekend has flown by, but I've gotten a lot of housework done that I had been putting off.I was on Facebook the other day jokeing about having run out of milk. Well I had planned to wait until the weekend to get the little things I needed.My work was rather tense and I decided I wanted to some wine & cheese and needed to go to the store. Funny how I was willing to wait for milk and eggs, but ran to the store for wine and cheese. With the girls gone we don't drink milk like we used to so it wasn't a big deal. Any way I made this card in honor of our facebook chat.
I was playing with my new Cricut cartridge called just because. I welded the word wine into the Milk container and used wallpaper as the background. I hope everyone had a great weekend too. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Thursday

Did you hear Pixie Dust Studio has a DT call out until April 30th. I’m throwing my name in the hat, Wish me luck!! With both my girls gone (almost in June) . My daughters’ wedding is this Saturday. I’m so nervous for her, but happy…She’s so happy. So needless to say I’ll have more time on my hands.
Today I’ve created a card for Sugar Creek Hollow & Creative Inspirations Challenge.
I used Sugar Creek Hollow’s sketch and a digi image from Pixie Dust Studio’s called In the Meadow.For Creative Inspirations Challenge you were to use Lime Green, Black and Flowers.
My Pixie dust digi provided flowers in my image and I also used flowers in my ribbon.Plus it’s also lime green!
This card came together easily . I used chalk for the clouds and my primsacolor pencils, plus a little bit of copper acrylic paint for Edwards hair. Thanks for stopping by and leaveing a comment.
My Second card is for Card Patterns sketch #59. I used a digi named Winky from Pixie Dust Studio.I wanted Mr.Winky to be King of the jungle so I used my jungle print cardstock and gave him more darker look around the face. You know kinda like a outgrown beard. LOL ...
This card also can be used as a baby card for Caardvarks...cause Mr.Winky is so versitile like that.
Anywho... Happy Thursday Everyone. Thanks for Stoppin by...

Anthing But A Card

Happy Monday to all,
Bernice one of my co-workers gave me a few wooden cigar boxes and I decided to make my niece Bella a purse. You see Bella is a Girly Girl; she loves purses,shoes and playing dress up.
I got lucky and Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog this week was to create anything but a card. I need post the side view of this purse, because I added a flowered ribbon. I originally wanted to use gems, but Bella has a baby brother. I was fearful if one of the gems fell off it could be swallowed! So I opted for a girly ribbon.
I hope you like it...I know Bella will.

Second post on Easter

This card is made for Stampin Royalty We are suppose to use the Easter theme.I hope this duck is considered an Easter theme, I even have an Easter egg inside the pocket. AnyWho this is what I did: Today I tried a new techinque to me and I learned it from Digital Delights . I even placed a liner inside of my card! You know I've never done that unless I've created the card with my cricut. LOL I've been in my little comfort zone to long..so this year I'm trying to branch out...That and go to my scrap pile before I cut into my paper packs. You know how hard that is espicially when I have three new paper packs I can't wait to tear into! My card was created useing So-So Sweet paper pack some construction paper for the inside and a super digi from Tales from Pollycraft.
Thanks For Stoppin by
