Hello - It's been a busy month but enjoying it. I wish we traveled more vs. short trips but with the way the world is now it's probably best to stay for trips. 

We have a new challenge over at

Theme: Metals - colors hardware, paper


This is another Pumpkin kit from Stampin up. The gray card base has gold foiling. The piece behind the butterfly and beyond edges of cream color card stock along with the gold lettering. Thought it worked great for the metal theme.

Hello  
We have a new challenge over at

Theme: Anything goes / Make it cute 

our sponsor is Last Minute Manda


I chose to use Flower puppies and I just kept the colors very light so they looked faded. I wasn't sure how to color it and printed it a couple of times so I could practice.. I like the first one and went with it. I found some soft colors for the background and the cute sentiment from Reverse Confetti. Again I added some left over diamond painting drills for interest.

Cardz 4 Galz #229 - you mean so much

Thursday July 11, 2024

Hello. Wow, a week since the 4th of July. Hope you in the USA had a nice safe time. We really don't do anything.. We live in the country and so many just do all sorts fireworks so we just sit out on the deck and watch what we can. We only have one fur baby left and she's pretty much deaf so she isn't really bothers by it. 

We have a new challenge over at

Theme: Shades of blue

So this is a Stampin Up set. I stamped the flowers and used the stencil to color it. I love the blues. I've used this stamp set a few times and change the flower colors. Love it. I added some diamond drills left over from my diamond painting projects..

Cardz 4 Guyz #351 - Dreams drift

Tuesday July 9, 2024

Hello

I am loving the summer time. I love the brightness of the day, the heat as long as it's in the 70's low 80's  I am fine. It energizes me.. winter drains me... 

We have a new challenge over at

Theme: Animal Magic



What is animal magic??? I don't know so I chose an image that looked magical with the face on his body and just cuteness. This is an old wooden red rubber stamp by Paula Best.. I stamped it on a scrap of Quick Quote paper.. I looked for sentiments and chose this one my best friend had made up and won a contest for the best sentiment and they made it into a stamp and when she passed away at age 55 - 16 yrs ago I got it. She was a dear friend and we had so much in common. loved creating with her and her friendship. I miss her so much. I have so many wonderful memories over the years.
