Happy Fall

We do not have much of a fall here in Florida but I love to scrap fall pictures so I was thrilled when my son in the Midwest texted me this picture of the granddaughters at the pumpkin patch recently.

I used this sketch from Rochelle Spears:

I am just slipping this entry in under the wire....I created it Saturday but totally forgot to blog about it until 10 minutes ago. I am entering it in the October Sketch challenge at Rochelle's blog. You can see all the details HERE

Thanks for stopping by my blog....I hope you have a wonderful week.


Peace, Love and Licks

This stamp set from My Favorite Things is one of my newest acquisitions and it is from their most recent release. I must admit, I bought it more for the adorable holiday pun-ny sentiments than the images. Although the sweet canine images are absolutely adorable. I will be using this set quite a bit these next several weeks as I create my 100 Christmas cards that I send out. So far I have about 10!

I used this wonderful sketch from MFT:

I am entering it in Sketch Challenge #408

That's it for now. It is Monday -- my least favorite day of the week -- so I am going to watch a bit of TV (new American Pickers) and hit the sheets.

Dream On

I was able to do a bit of creating all weekend in addition to our list of things to do. I am really enjoying getting back to creating after not having the time or motivation for awhile. I have a stack of great pictures and awesome experiences to document from this summer so that is going to keep me busy for awhile. This beautiful picture of my gorgeous red haired toothless granddaughter was perfect to use some fall papers with from the Forever Fall collection by Simple Stories even though the picture was taken at the counter fair last July. I used this easy to work with sketch from

I am entering it in their monthly sketch challenge....details can be found HERE.

That is all for now....thanks for stopping by my blog.

Halloween Card #4

I made this card for my 17 year old grandson Jacob. It is hard to make cards for older teenagers. But I saw this sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap and it totally inspired this card.

I am entering it in the sketch challenge at Sketch-n-Scrap and in the
Simon Says Stamp Monday Halloween/Spooky Challenge.

Well I have been up since 5am so I think I am going to hit the sheets. Thanks for checking out my blog.


You Are Faboolous

I pulled out a neglected Paper Smooches stamp set for this card. Don't you just LOVE that little green monster? My husband said he looks like the mucous monster from the Mucinex I just had to put a little witches hat on him. I created this card for my 13 year old grandson. I think the hardest group to make cards for are teenage boys....and I have 2 teenage grandsons. I often rack my brain trying to figure out a card design for them. 

I used the fun October sketch from Paper Smooches for this card:

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Halloween/Spooky Challenge.

That is it for now....I have a very busy Saturday ahead of me....early voting, shopping, the gym, housework and date night with my wonderful husband tonight. I will be back later today or tomorrow to share my last Halloween card with you.

Let's Chill

It has been way too long since I played with my Paper Smooches Stamps. I just LOVE the snowmen from this set and I was very inspired by the October sketch.

This card is very sparkly in person....unfortunately all the sparkle did not photograph well. I love my clear Nuevo drops that I used on the background. After using them for the first time on this card, I am really glad that I bought the large bottle.

That is it for to the couch for a little hockey and then bedtime. So glad it is Friday tomorrow.

Week 36

It seems like I am trying to catch up on a bunch of project that I have started, It was difficult this year with my father taking ill several times and his passing in August. It not only affected my time for crafting/memory keeping, it also affected my mojo. But slowly it is coming back and I am tackling the unfinished projects and will be caught up by the end of the year. For the above 6x8 page I used the fun sketch by Suzanna Lee for the Scraproom Blog. I love how sketches can be made to fit pages other that 12x12.


I am using the is page as my entry in the October Jump Start Challenge.

That is it for now....I worked on a couple of cards today so stay tuned tomorrow for a fun Halloween card.
