Eee Aye Eee Aye OHH!!!

Man I am just loving these High Hopes images they are just so darn cute. I used this cute farmer for my card for Sketch Saturday. He has been colored with my copics. I have used the nestibilites dies for the image and the wording both from High Hopes. The raffia ribbon is from a dear friend of mine I just love this stuff. Any way I just couldn't figure out what to use for all the items at the bottom of the sketch so I just used this paper that had a lot of circles so hopeing that would work okay.
Well hope you are having a great week so far. Big hugs.

Hello everyone. Hope all is well today. Today I have a card for you for Cute Card Thursday. Now this was a challenge that is for sure. Only 4 embellishments and 2 papers. Man I just couldn't figure out what ones to use so went the easy route and just added ribbon and 3 flat pearls lol. I used my Heidi Grace Paper (which I love and use it sparelylol) and I colored my Tilda and tulips in with my copic markers. I am making some cards for the church to mail out to there members for birthdays and they don't want them over the regualr envy price so most of my cards don't have a lot of embellishments right now. Before they changed all the restrictions at the post office it wasn't bad to mail a card but the size I make now (6x6) they want 64cents to mail and if I have any embellishments it is over a $1.00. My daughter needed some birthday cards so mom made them for her well she about flipped when they wanted $1.17 for one card. So had to lay off some of those for her too. But just love embellishing alot lol. Well thanks for stopping bye today and hope you are having a wonderful day. Hugs

Only 2 this week!!

Hello I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. I know I sure didn't have time to do any blogging or really any challenges this week I did manage to make 2 of them today but that was it. Just not enough hours in the day since they change my work hours. But hey I have a job still so that is all that matters.

This card is for High Hopes Challenge the challenge there this week was not to use patterned paper. Here I have used the jungle background and the giraffe and mounted it on some SU paper using the cuttlebug embossing folder on it. I colored the images in with my copics and the punches are from SU also but the sentiment is from the Party release from Whiff of Joy.

Friday Sketchers

Then comes Friday Sketchers Beatrix has a wonderful sketch this week so just had to get this one in. I have used K&CO Paper for my card and colored my Tilda from Magnolia in with my copics I have used some rub ons for my wording that I got at HL. The flowers are from the retro punches and so are the branch and leafs.

8 days old!

I just had a very lovely surprize!!! My new grandson just came to visit for a spell. His big sister started ball practice today so they came down and so they stopped bye to see me. I got to squeeze on him for awhile and I took a couple of pictures while I was holding him. He is growing already. Sort of sleeping during the day and wake at night (OH NO) but he went for a checkup today and is doing good.
