I am a SAHM to five children, I have began srapbooking when my oldest was a baby and then began making cards about 2 years ago. I have now begun bloggin and am enjoying it very much. I love all the new friends I have made and all the new challenges I have been able to become involved with.
What a fun challenge this week. We have this wonderful sketch by Laura, and we have the awesome opportunity to use the Scor-It. This card was a lot of fun. I hope everyone has a great week and I will be posting pics as soon as my internet connection is working in the new house. Today is my sons 8th birthday, so we will be celebrating that with him today.
"Today is the day that the Lord has made, Let us rejoice and be glad in it!"
I have so much to be thankful for. We have worked so hard to get our new house. It is a short sale and with much prayer and much headache, it is finally a reality. We received the keys on Thurs. and today is the "DAY". We are going to be moving today and will be spending our first night in our new home.
We are so excited. We love the house and I am exhausted from all the work, but it will be worth it. Even though I have many more hours of back-breaking work ahead of me, I am on the down hill climb.
I hope everyone has a great weekend, I will be posting pics soon.
Wow, it another great sketch at 2S4Y and another set of great products. We had the privelege of being able to use Starving Artist Stamps, Teresa Collins Paper and the mini Scor-It.
This adorable little goldfish and the bg stamp were from Starving Artist Stamps. the paper was from Teresa Collins and of course all the scored lined were done using the mini Scor-It. What an awesome tool this is.
Thursday of last week was such an exciting day for us. We have been in the process of trying to buy a house. It is a short sale, and it has taken quite a few twists and turns, but finally we received the phone call on Thursday that everything was approved and we will close tomorrow. So y'all know what that means, I will be packing and moving this week. and with the kids home for the summer it is quite a challenge. I know I have been a little out of the loop here, and hope after the move is over it will settle down and we can get back into a normal routine.
When I saw the challenge this week at Raspberry Suite, I just knew I had to try it. What a great color combo. These colors are sage, vintage cream, and black cardstock. This stamp set is one of my favorites. I just love the versatility of these adorable teapots. I love to see teapots setting around and have several different kinds in my kitchen. I used the gingham bg stamp by CHF and stamped it in a cream colored Stazon. The sentiment is stamped using Black Stazon. TFL!
What a great sketch from Laura this week, and we also were able to use some great products by Clear Snaps. The stamp I used is the Mixed Dots roller. I stamped it using black ink and used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch for the butterflies. The top letters were stamped using JustRight Stamps.
I have been having problems with my computer. My mouse on my laptop has gone out and I am using an old mouse that isn't cooperating well. My email is not functioning properly and the only email I am getting is on my I-Phone. So frustrating... It seems I forget how much I rely on my computer until it goes wacky on me. LOL!
I want to request that everyone keeps the daughter of a friend of mine in their prayers. She is 17 months old and was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma that has mastisized in her brain and it is also in her bones. She is going through intense chemo and her and her family need lots of prayer.
I hope everyone has a great week and hopefully I will get time to post later this week.
I decided to make a card today! Well, it didn't turn out so well. I couldn't find the stamp set I wanted, the kids kept interrupting me and things just weren't going as planned. This is the card that I finally ended up with. I love this paper and the lovely little cupcake. I hope everyone is having a great week.
Happy Monday All! Wow, last week was AWESOME at 2S4Y! We had so many play along. There were so many fantastic submissions, it was great getting to see all the wonderful talent.
This wonderful sketch is from Kazan. What a fun sketch to work with. I used Teresa Collins DP for this card. The stitching was done using one of the fun stitches on my machine. I love using it for cards. (Now if I could just actually sew on material! LOL!!!)
Now for the EXCITING NEWS! I am soooooo thrilled to share with you. I submitted a card to Paper Crafts and it was accepted for submission. I can't wait. This is my first time being published and what an exciting adventure for me.
Wow, what a crazy week this has been. We have been waiting for the house to close, but it hasn't yet. The wait is driving me crazy. I have been packing, the kids are home from school for the summer, it isn't the best time of the month for stress anyway and yesterday I had three kids with stomach problems, YUCK!
I have been itching to get back to my blog so I decided to put on this card for the Color Throwdown challenge and also for Timeless Tuesday.
Wow, the time has flown by so quickly and it is time for The Ultimate Card Showdown at 2 Sketches 4 You. This will be the ULTIMATE in FUN, so please come join us.
This card is for Laura's sketch this week. What a fun sketch. This card was inspired by summer, my kids are home for the summer now and they are excited about not having to go to school. Things here have gotten extremely hectic with trying to get ready for to move and having 5 little ones "helping". LOL!
