You Rock!!!!!  Well I hope this scheduled post has went off like it was suppose to.
Well as you all know my grandson moved in with me a few months ago. So his room hasn’t been decorated much and he went with Black!!!

So I made him a  plaque for his room wall. I have used one of the adorable Manga images from Sugar Nellie. This Rock Star is so cute. So love the way he is getting down LOL I have used some papers that were in my stash and adhered with Modge Podge. And used some Black Gesso around the edges. I embossed some wording from Verve Stamps.  All the gorgeous Manga images can be found over at Funky Kits.  And keep stalking the site for there is so much exciting things coming.

Something Old Something New


Evening All!!!!!! I do hope your week is going good so far. Mine has been busy busy busy!! My grandson started this first day of school here today. I know that must of been hard to start a new school. But he seemed to do okay. He is a sophomore this year. After working all day I had to go back to town and get all his supplies from the list they sent home!!! Man I forgot how expensive this all was lol


Anyway I finally got a couple cards done that I had been working on for a couple days. My first one is for the Sugar Bowl. There is a wonderful sketch by Marlene and I must say it was quite challenging lol The theme to go along with the sketch is Something Old Something New. SO my paper from Daisy D’s is really old lol and I have used one of my new images from Sugar Nellie.  Hope you all are joining in the challenge for there are some awesome prizes being given to one lucky person.

Finally some free time


Good day everyone!! I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.

I got really lucky the last couple of days and didn’t have to work to long so managed to get some coloring done and made a couple cards today.

This first one is a stamp I have had for quite some time and just managed to get around to coloring it. It is one of the Morehead images.

I have a wedding well actually 2 of them coming up so thought this was the perfect time to use this cute one. I used the sketch over at Create4fun .

Our temperatures are 99- 104 this week and Monday my central air went out and never got it fixed till Wednesday Oh me Oh my I don’t see how you all go without air. I was roasting!!!!! But it is fixed now and I am staying cool once I get home. Then to top it off someone got my debit card number actually tons of people got there debit card charged at my bank. People that bloody thief's make me so sick!!! Oh well enough bad things lol

My card this week for Just Magnolia , the sketch is by the lovely Dawny and I have used papers from MME with this lovely tilda. So come on and join us this week.
