June Already

Wow time sure does fly by! I cannot believe that it is June already, sure would be nice to have some decent weather, getting soooo tired of this rain!  Although I did get to enjoy some nice sunny weather not too long ago.  I just got back from Disneyland on May 24th, did a girls + 1 boy trip, was super fun and boy am I missing the sunshine!!! My Mom took me, my daughter and my sister and then my Aunt, her Grandson and my Cousin joined us, lots of laughs!!!

Even though once again I haven't been posting to my blog, I have been making some cards! I'm going to post a few tonight, I will have a few more to share in a couple of days.  These cards are back from Mother's Day and even a bit before.  I don't have any info on them anymore, I did write it out but have misplaced the piece of life story! lol

These 2 cards were for My Mom and Ron's Mom....

I can't take credit for this card design, i got the idea from Julie Ebersole, I love her work and loved the card she made so I decided to give it a try...I was very happy with the end results!

And this card I made for Ron's Sister....

So there you have it, a few cards and a few more to come!! 

Have a goodnight!!

Happy Monday

Ahhh Monday...1 down, 4 to go! Today was pretty uneventfull and I prefer my Monday's to be just that way.  Work, home, dinner and then took Cheyenne out to sell some Girl Guide Cookies....can you believe she sold 2 cases to 9 houses in under 30 minutes, I'm sure my girl has a future in sales!!  Funny thing was she was so disappointed that we didn't make it out of the culdesac, she has sold 5 cases now but looks like she wants to do cute!

Tonight I will share a card that I made yesterday while crafting with Cheyenne, I seem to have a thing for owls...well at least the stamped or digi kind.  I took 2 pictures and couldn't decide which was the better of the 2 so I will post both.  I prefer to take my pics outside but just didn't get around to it.

Card Recipe:  Stamp by Whipper Snapper, Sentiment Stamp by A Muse, DP by A Muse, Copics

Just a simple card but I liked the way it turned out.  I find alot of the time I try to put too much thought into a card and end up getting frustrated and leaving my craft room so these easy cards are where its at lately!

Have a great night, well whats left of it :o)

A Card to Share

Hello again, I think I could quite possibly be the worst blogger out there...eeek! I have such great intentions of blogging, I think about it often but then seem to get caught up reading everyone elses blogs lol.

I cannot believe how fast weekends whiz by, I don't feel like I accomplished much this weekend.  Yesterday Cheyenne and I went to our local scrapbook store, bought a few goodies, did a make and take for National Scrapbooking Day and then ran a few errands.  Today Cheyenne and I hung out in the craft room and made some cards...I'm soooo happy that she loves to craft as much as I do, fun for us to hang out and make stuff! I'm not quite sure which Cheyenne loves more...the crafting or going thru my supplies and trying to convince me that she needs them lol.

I made a few cards this weekend, I will share this one tonight.

Back from a 4+ month break

Goodmorning, its been a while....4 months to be exact!  So much has been happening, lots of changes in my life! Although I haven't been blogging I have still been crafting, unfortunately not taking pictures of many of my creations....a few though!!

The following cards are birthday ones I made for Ron's Mom and Dad and my Grandma's 90th Birthday....also one baby card in the mix too!  I don't have any info on the cards (sorry), just never thought to write it down...these are from a while back!

I hope you enjoy your Sunday, I need to compile a grocery list and meals for the week! I will be back tomorrow with some Easter cards that I have been working on this weekend!!

Happy Father's Day

Just on my way to bed but thought I would make a quick post.  I have actually done a fair amount of crafting over the weekend....quite amazing for me, mojo has more or less been hiding but peeked its head this weekend lol.  I made my Dad a 12x12 canvas for Father's Day and also made Josh a little gift too.

Hello!! Wow...just about 2 months since I last posted. So much going on in my life right now my blog just got totally neglected. With everything happening I seemed to of lost my mojo....its is slowly but surely coming back though. Its so frustrating, I will go down to my craftroom and everything I touch just turns out to be a huge mess lol, either that or I just sit and stare at my supplies and can't make up my mind what to use. I have managed to make 2 cards (yay me lol) in the past 2 days, I have no info on them right now....that involves being organized and that just isn't me at the moment. I will post both of them and then I must get my butt into bed....I do promise to try and blog a bit more regularly. I also have been visiting all of your blogs, just not commenting....I will get back into that too!

Thank goodness its Saturday

Not many blog posts from me lately.  I have been sick sick sick, for like 3 1/2 weeks and I just can't seem to shake it, its now a cough....a bad cough, nothing works and I'm coughing all day all night and going BONKERS because of it lol.  On top of that its just been a kind of a crummy couple of weeks, my husband lost his job, his job of 16 years and it honestly came as quite a surprise.  His mill had slowed down and shut down for a couple of weeks but always with the promise that things were going to be okay.  I can't even go into detail as the whole situation in my opinion was handled so very wrongly and I'm very angry about the whole situation.  He was given severence...thank goodness for after 16 years my husband is searching for a new career, I have no doubt that he'll find a great job that he loves and perhaps this whole mess is a blessing in disguise. 
Onto other cards lol.  I have 2 cards to share.  One is my card that I made for Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge 8 and the 2nd is a card that I made for my girlfriends little girls first birthday.

Mojo Monday - MOJO77

This is the first Mojo Monday Sketch that I've done, I visit their blog often and love browsing all the cards so figured maybe I should join in.  Overall I like my card but wished I had used a different colour base, the white is just to plain...too white....ahhh time! 
Stamped Image by Whipper Snapper, Sentiment by Cornish Heritage Farms,
used Nesties to cut out circle and scalloped circle, Patterned Paper was scraps I had so no name that I could find (thinking maybe American Crafts...maybe)
