Follow your Heart


Happy Sunday to everyone!!! I hope everyone has had a nice weekend. I know I didn’t get much done yesterday, the first week back from vacation was sure a killer so it took me all day yesterday to get my house work done lol Stop and Start Stop and Start lol

But this morning I got up extra early so I could get back on track with my work hours (3am) so I done some crafting. I had my images already colored so just had to make the cards up. I decided to join a few challenges with my images.
First up here I have a gorgeous Ballerina Tilda. I used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday  I had received a couple of new Magnolia’s the other day and just had to use this one right away.

Now for my second card I done I used this adorable Hanglar image and for the Lovely Hanglar Challenge Blog. The theme this week is Lace and I had this gorgeous lace with purple roses in the center that was just perfect.  I am also entering this into the Create4Fun Challenge Blog, where the challenge there is to use Flowers on your card. I distressed the edges of my paper with the Zutter distress it all and added some lavender stickles to the edges.  I also used the sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge Blog

The theme there was glitter and boy did I get a bit carried away lol  I used the distress it all from Zutter and done my edges and I glittered the edges with stickles, and I also put glitter on my flowers and butterfly. Then I used my spica glitter pens on my images in several places so I do believe I got the glitter covered lol. I also used the sketch over at Create 4 fun Challenge Blog .

Yes, it is me again with a second post for the day. I have had such a wonderful play day today. My vacation is almost over so I figured I would play since I got most off all I needed to do done. It felt really good to have some play time.

I managed to get a lot of things done today but can’t show you them yet lol Sorry you will have to wait till next week. But I did finish my band-aid tin that I started a few weeks ago.  This is Little Nurse from Whiff of Joy, isn’t she adorable?? She is part of the Get Well stamps.  One of the guys I work with his wife is a nurse so I thought this would be a cute gift for her. He is always making me wood projects the man can sure make the wood projects. Just gorgeous.

Happy 4th!!!!!!!
I wanted to take a few minutes before the family got here to upload this project I made.

And as always the picture is awful!!! I just give up on taking pictures.

This is a mini clipboard I altered. I used the Cherry Tilda to go with the Cherry papers.

I made a little holder to hold the notepad and pencil and added another clip to it.

Well hope you all are having a wonderful day and enjoying all the cookouts etc.

My family will be here shortly and we are going to cookout and I am starving lol

The Sugar Bowl


Morning Everyone!!! Boy I have been lost!!! I have had no internet service for

2 days!!! That is just unreal lol. Frontier took over Verizon’s service and on the

first day it was down lol But looks like things are up and running pretty good

right now so let’s hope it stays that way. Thank Goodness I had my JM scheduled.


Today I have my card for the Sugar Bowl to show you. I have used one of the Home Grown

images from the baby line at Sugar Nellie’s. She is called Bubbles!!! Isn’t she just the

cutest???  One of the girls I work with is going to have a little baby girl so I thought I

would use this adorable sketch to make her card.

Papers are from my dear friend Bev she knows how much I love purple!! Thank you dear
