Wake Up & Be Awesome

I love to create coffee themed card and I am in a group where we swap coffee themed cards every month....I love making and sending mine out and I especially love receiving one every month. This month I was a little late in getting my card created and mailed. I think it will arrive at it's destination before the end of the month. I used this awesome sketch from Kerry Urbatch:

I am entering this card in the Coffee Loving Cardmakers sketch challenge.
I am also entering it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.

Than you for stopping by my humble little blog....have an amazing week.

First I Do the Coffee....

I make no secret (or apologies) for my addiction to coffee. I love it. And I love to use it as a theme in my card making. I am not alone....there are a great many of us Coffee Lovin' Cardmakers. In fact there is a blog for us and I used one of the Sunday Sip and Share sketches from the fabulous Kerry Urbatch for this card:

I am entering this card in the sketch challenge at CLC
and also in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by....have a delightful weekend.

Paintball Warriors

I found an older photo of my oldest grandson and youngest son playing paintball several years ago.  Jacob is now 15 years old and like most teenage boys, he does not like having his picture taken anymore. I desperately need to fill his scrapbook so it is even somewhat close to as full as his younger brother's album so I was really happy to come across this photo.

I used this sketch from DCWV:

I am entering this page in their February Stack-a-Holic sketch challenge. All the papers are from the Guy Stack. I used the leftover papers on the birthday card I made for my dad.  You can see that card HERE

Thanks for stopping by....there is still a few days left if you want to join me in the DCWV sketch challenges. I will be back tomorrow with a coffee themed favorite current trend.

My Dad is turning 85 the end of this week. Isn't that amazing? He just recently moved down here to Florida from Denver to be closer to us. He built a beautiful new home and we have been helping him get all moved in and unpacked. But this weekend we will be celebrating instead of unpacking moving boxes. I made him this card.  I used this awesome sketch from Freshly Made Sketches which DCWV is featuring for their February Stack-Aholic challenge

I actually made this card from the paper leftovers from a layout that I will be sharing with you tomorrow so please come back and check it out.  I rather like it. I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I will be back with another post tomorrow.

Uncle Adam Rocks

Last fall, my son Adam kept my son Matt's girls over night.  The girls love going over to their uncle's house and hanging out with their cousins and seeing their grandfather and Uncle Adam is a lot of fun. I was thrilled when Adam posted this picture. Living 1000 miles away from family I am dependent on social media for most of my material to scrap.

I used this sketch from Clique Kits and entered their February challenge.

Well that is about it for is Monday and I am pretty worn out on Monday evenings.  But I will be back tomorrow with a card to share. Thanks for stopping by.

She is Fierce -- February Sistahood Blog Hop

It is the 17th of the month and you know what that is time for your monthly reminder to do a breast self exam and if you are due, make the appointment for your annual mammogram.  Remind you friends, mothers, sisters and co-workers also. It could save a life.  My routine screening mammogram and this blog hop saved my life. For can read the whole story HERE

It also means that iit is time for the CAS-ual Fridays Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop. I made a card to send to a newly diagnosed friend. Do you know that in the US breast cancer strikes 1 out of every 8 women?  Several of us on this blog hop have been one of those 1 in 8 and all of us know someone who has been touched with this horrible disease. Here is my card:

I used a sentiment from The Calling All Sistahs Collection ....this set is called Word Ribbon.  The sequins are a special mix from Pretty Pink Posh mixed exclusively for CAS-ual Fridays and they are gorgeous. Michele, the owner of CAS-ual Fridays and herself a breast cancer survivor donates a portion of the profits on all the products in this collection to breast cancer research.  You can see all the stamps and products in the Calling All Sistahs Collection HERE

If you are on this blog hop you came from the fabulous blog of Melissa Miller and the next stop on this inspirational hop is the extremely talented Shona Chambers from down under in New Zealand. Wait until you see her will knock your socks off! Be sure to comment on all our blogs because two randomly chosen commenters will receive a $15 shopping credit to the CAS-ual Fridays store. Please comment by February 19th.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to check yourselves and get 'em squeezed!

Have a Fintastic Birthday

I just recently got this awesome Newton's Nook mermaid stamp set and used it tonight to make a birthday card for a good friend back in the Midwest. I sure hope the USPS can get it to her on time...I procrastinated a day or two too long. I also used this fun sketch from Newton's Nook:

I am linking it up to the Inky Paws Challenge
also to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Use Your Favorite Tool favorite tool is my good old fashioned Cutterbee scissors.  I love to fussy cut. I fussy cut the mermaid image on this card after stamping and coloring her.

Thanks for stopping sure to stop by on Friday for a very special blog hop that I am participating in.
