Oh So Sweet!!

Hello everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!! It goes so fast doesn't it?? Well my family is on there way back home to SC, and tomorrow is back to the slave board at work!! But wanted to make a card before the weekend ended so I chose to do the lovely sketch that Carole has on Friday Sketchers. I even got to ink up and color one of the Gorjuss Girls from Sugar Nellie in. She was colored with my copics and spica glitter pens. I used the retro flower punches with brads and spacers in the center. I used eyelets on a couple of the corners and I also used a metal corner flourish. The branch and leaf is from MS.
Well Carole had a wonderful time using your sketch dear. I just wanted to say thank you so much for stopping bye, Big Hugs

My family gathering

Well as most of you know I had some family come in from SC and we all got together for a cookout. We had a wonderful time and was so nice to have most of us together. Was missing 2 aunts (my father's sisters). It is so hard for my cousin Kathy to get around to see everyone so I thought what better way than to have a cookout. Both of my parents are gone and have been for 20+ years so it was sad in a way also. But just wanted to show you a few of the pic's we took. Thanks for stopping bye Hugs
This is my couisn Kathy (From SC) her father Wilburn, Uncle Tom, and of course me. (OMG i have put on so much weight after not smoking)

Just Thinking!!!!

Hello folks!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and spent plenty of time with those Fathers!! It was a quiet day here. I got most of my cleaning done and had a little play time today for myself. I made a card for the Sugar Bowl it was a lovely sketch (love those sketchs) by Lilian. I used the adorable Country Style stamp. Isn't she adorable. She was colored with my copic's and spica glitter pens. I used the raffia ribbon and used my retro flower punches for the flowers and a brad flower with my MS branch punch. My papers are from SU. My lighting wasn't the greatest so sorry for the blurr!!

Then these are some notepads I made for a couple girls at work. One lady asked me to make her one for a gift then I just made one for another lady that comes to my line. Keeps me in sain getting to talk about crafting while there at work and yes we are still working those long hours they say next month will even be worse that orders will be up 27% Don't know how we will make it we are working 12 hours now. Oh well I have a job so should not complain.
My images on the motebooks are from Sugar Nellie also they are by Leanee Ellis and they are called Blossum and Journey. I so love coloring these images in. The poor things have been setting here waiting on me to color them forever!!! They were colored with my copic's and I have used the retro flower punches, and brads for the center. Flat pearls were used on both and the wording on the pink one is from SU along with the oval punches for it. I also used one of the cuttlebug embossing folders for the pink one, and the purple one I used one of the new Fiskars folding punches.
Well thank you so much for stopping bye today and sure hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I have to work Monday through Wednesday and then I took a couple vacation days I have family coming in from S Carolina well they are already here as of today but am having a cookout here Thursday with all the family getting together. So hopefully I can get some more blog hopping in I did manage to get some in this morning. Big Hugs
