Weekend Play Time


Happy Weekend dear friends !!! It was a great weekend for me I am happy to say. I was off a couple days on vacation this week and boy was it a busy time that it has flown bye so fast.

I spent the first day doing all the house chores and Friday my youngest granddaughter and I had a girls day out !! We went out to eat and shopped till we dropped and then to the movies. Now that wore me out worse than working lol  Yesterday morning was spent doing the outside work, and I even scrubbed the deck lol But last night I had a long sit and done some playing and finished them up today.  It felt so good just to sit and play and do something just for fun.

As you all know I had to step down from Susana’s Custom Art and Cards as my work load at work is just way to much anymore. It was a very hard decision but something I had to do for I couldn’t give 100% to her and Susana is just the greatest person I have ever met.  She is so wonderful to work with and we have grown into very best friends that I will always cherish. Your the best girl !!!

My first card is a Sylvia Zet image for Susana’s store and she is just the sweetest !!!I so love coloring these images. Papers are from Susana’s called Carta Bella and this pad is just gorgeous !!! Susana carry's the most variety of paper pads I have ever seen in one store. Check them out here.

Now look at those corner dies !!!!!!!!! OMG !!! Susana has got her own line of dies, Dies by Susana. You won’t believe all the detail in these dies folks.  I saw them in the store and loved them but when I got them in person OMG they are to die for !!! If you all do not have any of these yet then you are missing out !! Trust me !!

For my image Friendship Ties ! This beauty has been colored with my copic’s and I have used the spica glitter pens on the image also. I have to say I had so much fun coloring her in and having such a great play time.


Yes 2 cards in one weekend !!!

I have used this adorable Party Hardy image from Krista Smith. She has been colored with my copic’s and spica glitter pens. I added a Petaloo flower and I have used a MS border.

I used a different corner die from Dies by Susana and I so love this one too. Love it. And look at those papers !!! I just about cried when I cut into them, A very dear sweet friend from the UK sent these to me (thanks so much sweetie) These are from the Life in the Country from Maja Designs. Oh I so feel in love with this pad.

There is a new challenge going on at the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog of Red , White and Blue so I am going to enter this card there.


Thanks so much for stopping bye and visiting me, I have to say I had a blast with some play time this weekend for fun.  Sending Big hugs your way (((((((()))))))))))))))

Tilda Boxes


Hello dear blogging friends !!!

Well I got some play time in this weekend and so I thought I would show you what I got done. I had some boxes already painted and some images had already been colored so I finished them up today by adding some papers from Jen Allyson on them. As I told you before my granddaughters friends wanted some things made for there birthdays so I figured I better get some more done for I really don’t know when the kids birthdays are. So at least they will be ready.

This first box I painted with some Viva Decor Inka Gold Paint I love how smooth this goes on. I used Old Gold for this box. I used some glamour dust glitter paint on the flowers and a Magnolia fence die. Sorry the pictures aren’t very good today.


This next box I used the same papers on and used a Make It Crafty chipboard corner from Susana’s. I added the glamour dust glitter paint on the flowers and added some lace around the box.

I have a couple more boxes painted just need to get some images colored for them so hopefully soon I will have some more to show you. I think after this I will have enough boxes and frames made for the girls when there birthdays arrive.

Thanks a lot for stopping bye and visiting me. It is greatly appreciated.

Play Ball !!!!


Good day dear blogging friends !!!

Well it is the end of the weekend !! I was so lucky to of been put on a different line Friday instead of mine so I didn’t have to work the weekend !! YIPPEE !!

I got some play time in late last night and this morning I got to finish it all. I have so many projects I need to start. When my oldest granddaughter had her birthday party all her little friends loved all her boxes and frames I made her so they told her they wanted some for there birthdays lol Boy I got myself a list already lol Bless their hearts lol

So I started off with this wooden coat hanger. Thought it would make just a cute decoration for their room. I used this gorgeous image from Krista Smith called Gothica. Isn’t she so cute ??? I colored her with my copic’s and spica glitter pens.  I used the Silks from Susana’s Custom Art and Cards to paint the wooden hanger and then added Making Memories paper to the front. I used some glamour dust glitter paint on the flowers. So LOVE this stuff !!! The  Friends was a die cut from Sizzix

I saw where the challenge at Saturated Canary Challenge Blog was anything goes so I am going to enter this there.



Here is a side view of the hanger.


Yesterday was my youngest granddaughters birthday so before the party she had a ball game. So grandma went and sat in the steaming hot sun to watch her play. She made a home run too. It was so cute to watch them all play. So here is my little diva granddaughter and when I use that word diva I really mean it lol


Here she is playing 3rd base.


And here is a pic of my only 2 granddaughters taken at her party. Ashley on the left and Kirstie on the right. Ashley turned 6 yesterday and Kirstie was 9 in May. Boy they so grow up so fast.

I got some news a couple weeks ago that I am going to be a great grandma !!!! Man am I ever getting old !!!! We don’t know yet what it is still to early but am excited.


Well I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. I know mine has sure been busy. Now I need to go start on all the house work and laundry lol Just never stops does it.

Thanks so much for stopping bye and visiting me today. I so appreciate it. I know I don’t get on much working the long hours I do but I so appreciate all the comments you leave me.

Sending Big Hugs your way. (((((((()))))))))))))

The last of the birthday gifts


Hello dear friends !!! I so hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

Mine was busy as usual but the best part of the weekend is my dear sweet friend from the UK called me and we had such a wonderful chat. It is always so nice to get to talk in person.

But I did manage to finish up the rest of Ashley's birthday crafts lol I bought her present awhile back and she has no idea what it is yet but she had told me she needed me to make her things for her new room. So I showed you the frames last week and I finally finished her card and the rest.

This is Ava from Krista Smith isn’t she so adorable?? I just love these images. I colored her with copic’s and used some spica glitter pens on her. I so love these eyes and I used some diamond glaze on them to give them more of a pop. Papers are from some old SU papers.  The sentiment is from some words from TAC. I used the Whimsy Stamps ticket die for the sentiment. And as always I used some glamour dust glitter paint on the flowers.


Then here is a large chipboard letter A for her room which I used some more older papers from SU  I colored up a Tilda with my copic’s and spica glitter pens and this gorgeous flourish I got from Susana’s Custom Art and Cards.  I used the glamour dust glitter paint on the flowers also.


I could not get a good picture of this frame at all so I didn’t make it very big here for the glass is just shooting off so much glare. But this is another picture Ashley sent me to decorate for her. I just bought a frame at Wal-Mart and added some lace to it. I used the Whimsy Stamps banner dies and some sizzix alphabet dies.



Here is the story behind the picture she gave me. This is Trevor, He was in Ashley’s class and he passed away this winter. He had wondered off behind his house and had fell into the cold winter pond and drown.  So his parents had these papers made up and I have made it bigger here so you can read it. This really shook the kids up and Ashley wanted it decorated up some. But the picture above just doesn’t show very well. Sorry.


Well that is it for me for now. I have now finished up all her crafts she wanted, took me long enough but it is just so hard to get much done working long hours.

But thank you all so much for stopping bye. I so appreciate it. Sending Big Hugs ((((((((())))))))))))))
