Florida Hockey Road Trip Revisited

For the last couple of years my husband and I have gone to see our favorite hockey team...the Chicago two games against opponents here in Florida.  They always seem to lose when they come to Florida but we have a good time regardless. When I saw this sketch at Scrapbook and Cards Today last Saturday (National Scrapbook Day) I knew I wanted to use it to document this year's hockey road trip.

I squeezed in a few more photos but tried to stay as true to the sketch as possible while still making it mine.

Well we are off to a Jimmy Buffet concert....should be fun.

Kick Some Bass

Tomorrow is my brother-in-law Bob's birthday.  He lives in North Carolina and is an avid fisherman. I bought this stamp set from Your Next Stamp especially with his birthday in mind but have used it several times is a fun set to use.

For this card I used the current sketch from Your Next Stamp and am entering it in their Sketch Challenge #63

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday The Great Outdoors Challenge

Well, that is all for now....I have a busy day with a very full to do list. I will be back later with more to share.

Our Graduate

This is another page for my scrapbook album....most of my pages get put in scrapbooks and given to the person who is the subject of the grandsons, granddaughters, my sons....they all have a scrapbook in progress. When it gets full, I give it to them and start another. But this page is mine, all mine. What an awesome picture this is of the whole Farley family....even my ex-husband is in the photo. It was a great day to get together and celebrate Jacob's 8th grade graduation.

I used this awesome sketch from Freckled Fawn:

 I used lots of Freckled Fawns fun embellishments: the big YAY, the silver puffy stars and the aqua washi tape at the bottom of the page. I am entering it in their April Sketch Challenge

Thanks for stopping by...ugh it is Monday tomorrow.  Not my favorite day but after work I think I will make a fun birthday card for my brother-in-law. A little crafting always makes a Monday better.

Looking Good

I love this selfie of Dave and I from last December when we got our new glasses. (He wears glasses all the time while I only wear mine for reading.) I saw this sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap and knew that this picture was perfect for this sketch.

I am so proud of myself that I used all four of the sketches from Sketch-n-Scrap this month. They have an awesome prize from PinkFresh this month which would be great to win, but more importantly I got 2 pages done and cards made and sent out. Yay! I feel very accomplished.

I am also entering this page in Elle's Studio Challenge Day Work An Angle Challenge. Everything on this page is from Elle's Studio.  Another accomplishment is that I was able to enter 3 out of 4 Elle's Studio challenges this month....go me!!

Well I have a little free time this evening and I just might see if I can put together another challenge layout. I hope you are enjoying your weekend....I am.

Thanks Mary Kay

Recently an online acquaintance sent me something I really wanted and was having trouble finding. I thought that was so sweet of her that I wanted to make her a thank you card and I finally got to it.  This is just a clean and simple little card but I hope it will put a smile on her face.

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.

TGIF!!!  Bring on the weekend!

Every Good and Perfect Gift.....

I am part of a small community of online friends who craft together and share our lives together.  One of the ladies has been a tremendous encourager of me recently and I wanted to send her a card and a few little goodies to thank her. I found this sticker in my stash and knew it would make the perfect focal point on a card for her.

Thanks for stopping by....only one more work day and then it is the weekend....YAY!!


You Are Braver....

My husband and I work with a man who has been on leave fighting head and neck cancer.  It has been rather rough for him lately so I wanted to send him a card with some encouragement.  I whipped up this simple card for him and mailed it off a few days ago.

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.

I will be right back with another blog post and another card to share.  Thanks for popping in.
