Paper Issues Card Sketch

I thought this card sketch would be awesome for a Mother's Day card for my daughter-in-law.  I love Sketchy Saturday at Paper Issues....their sketches always inspire me.  Here is the card I created with it:

I used papers and that awesome pinwheel from my Dear Lizzy drawer.  I had been hoarding that pinwheel for quite some time so this was the perfect project to break down and finally use it.  The sentiment in that awesome script is from Simon Says Stamp.

Speaking of Simon Says Stamp, I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes challenge.

It's hump day!  Hope it is a good one for you.

CAS(E) This Sketch #121

My brother-in-law Bob is a real pistol.  I know that he will get a kick out of this card even if it is going to be a day or so late.  But, hey, I recently had surgery so I am a little slow getting back into the groove.  I am feeling good and have been back to work already, however.

I used this sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:

The stamp set is called WTF and is from CAS-ual Fridays.  It is always sure to get a laugh when I use it.  I am entering this card in CAS-ual Fridays 4th Birthday Challenge to create a clean and simple birthday themed card and use their signature colors of orange, turquoise, black and white.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I have a few more projects to share so I will be back shortly.

Happy Mother's Day

I have an awesome mother-in-law and are very lucky that both she and Dave's dad are both in very good health and very active.  Next weekend we plan on spending a day with them and taking them to dinner. I wanted to make a card for her that is pretty and feminine....just like Diane is.  I used this beautiful sketch from My Favorite Things:

I just love the way the ribbon is shown being threaded through the tag so I made sure I did that on my card also.  I am entering this in Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge also.

Tomorrow is National Scrapbooking Day and I have plans to scrap all day.  What are your plans???

Paper Issues Chalk One Up to Your Own Style

I found this little chalkboard at a thrift store and knew I wanted to fix it up for a little gift to give my hubby.  Tomorrow is out 12th anniversary....can everyone say "Awwww...."???  Lol.  Seriously, I am sooo lucky.  I love this man to death.  We love all the same things and have the best time together.  People actually look at us and shake their heads....that is just how cute we are LOL!

I used mostly the Kiss Me collection from Bella Blvd to alter this chalkboard and I am linking it up with Paper Issues lastest linky party -- Chalk One Up to Your Own Style.

I am also entering it in Simon Says Stamp's Monday Anything Goes challenge.

Sohere is a picture of us....wouldn't you agree that I am a lucky girl?

Thanks for stopping by.


Verve Sketch Week #2

I love Verve sketches (and their stamps).  This was such a busy month that I was only able to play with 2 of their 4 sketches.  Here is their second sketch and here is the card I created with it:

I made this card for a dear friend of mine who is having a birthday this weekend.  Renata and I have been friends since 8th grade and she was my maid of honor in my first marriage.  We lost touch with each other for years and reconnected a few years ago via Facebook.  I was pleasantly surprised that she also lives in Florida but farther down south.  I hope to see her later this summer.  By the way....those are roses from my garden.  I just love pink roses.

I am entering this card in the sketch challenge at Verve which you can see HERE.
I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge: Anything Goes

I had surgery earlier this week and am feeling much better so today is my first day back to work.  While we were off and I was recovering my hubby finally brought home his dream car.....which we are taking to work today (we work together).  Look what I will be traveling in:

Thanks for stopping by....have a wonderful day.

Turtle-ly Awesome Adventures

My grandson Cole is a typical boy....he loves frogs, toads, turtles and walks in the wood where he can find all kinds of other creatures.  I wanted to document that all boy-ness about him before he gets to be 13 like his older brother and too cool to have his picture taken.  So that is why I have so many more pages of Cole.  Jake is just way too cool to get photographed....LOL

I used one of my favorite masculine collections....Bella Blvd's Max collection for this page.  I have nearly used up my whole collection of Max.  I think I have 2 sheets, some scraps, and a few alphas and stickers left.  Enough for one layout and some cards.  I love it when I use up a collection.  I also used this sketch from Boys Rule Scrapbook kits by Laura Whitaker:

In addition to the sketch challenge I am entering this page in Lasting Memories Gratitude challenge.  I am so very grateful for my grandchildren and the job that my son is doing to raise his boys as a single dad. 

Thanks for stopping by the blog.  I may be out of commission for a short while as I am having surgery tomorrow.  It is out patient surgery so hopefully I should be up and around and scrapping/sharing very shortly.

February 2015 Pocket Page #1

I just completed page one of February's 2015 pocket pages.  I am documenting monthly now as Dave and I do not have enough activities in our life to fill 2 pocket pages per week.  But I can usually fill 2-3 pages per month.  I believe that February will be a 3 pager and I will share the other 2 pages when they are complete.

My dear old dad's birthday falls in February so I wanted to make a card that recognized his achievement of 83 years.  I also am working on a 3x4 card journaling our phone convo a few days after his birthday. I really wish we couldf've been together to celebrate this special day.  I used this sketch from Life Zesters for his card:

I really like the way it turned out....simple and fun....just like my dad.  

That is about it....thinking for popping in.
