Let's get patriotic...challenge #65

Hey all...just a fun challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's. I love anything this was one I couldn't resist. I love all of the new images that Cheryl has come up with for the Summer holidays. Can't wait to get coloring!
Thanks for stopping by.

Color me challenge #24

Hey all...and Happy Memorial Day. We have had a beautiful, hot weekend here at the beach. I hope all of you have had a safe and happy weekend.
I did a little coloring between some grand kids...yard work and few catching up jobs.
It sure was fun to color these Sassy Rags! I do love Raggedy dolls and Cheryl out did herself with these cuties. This image can be used for so many different cards. I did this one in some All American colors...but they sure would be cute in other colors.
Stop over and visit Sassy will be so inspired by all of her wonderful images and incredible ideas from her design team.
Thanks for stopping by and stop in again!

tweet....tweet...get Krafty Challenge

So...this is Jen's challenge for Sassy Cheryl's this week. Print the image on Kraft paper and color it with whatever! What a fun challenge. I used my Copic's to color and the colors are all so different on the Kraft paper. Loved it. I used Cheryl's topiary birdhouse image and then enlarged it so I could get a couple of birds and a bigger house to add to the side.

Thanks for the Challenge Jen and Cheryl. Loved it! Keep'em comin!


Show me Thursday...late as usual!

My new Cricut...the other one is on it's last leg. I had the original expression from the day they came out and it has been loved and used since that day....but it was time to invest in the new and improved one from HSN. I am dying to play with it...maybe tonight!

My desk is kinda clean for once. I have not been home to mess it up. I worked on the challenge for Sassy Cheryl's. Miss Jeni came up with the idea to print one of Cheryl's images on Kraft paper. Well...I love Kraft paper so it was a fun challenge. Thanks Jen!

All my loot from Archivers....about 100 sheets of paper and a few other goodies that I already put away. Love that store!

OK...I know it is almost this Thursday and I am posting on Wednesday for last Thursday...but I have been busy and gone. I do have a lot on my desk this week though and wanted to share.

I was Indiana for a week and of course I had to make a couple of stops by Archivers on my way in and my way out of Indianapolis. Oh...I love that store. I always say I want one closer, but I am sure it is a good thing that the closest one is 4 hours away

Anyway...I unloaded all those goodies....then I made a card to post on the Sassy Cheryl challenge blog and I also got my new Cricut on the Friday before I left for my trip and I still have not gotten to play with it. Anyway...all that and I have pictures to prove it.

Thanks for stopping by and snooping. Love to have you take a peek.

Have a great day...

Graduation time...


Hey all...yes I am back. It has been a busy couple of weeks. Spent some time with family in Indiana, so that was fun. Scrapped with some of my very favorite people. Those girls are my originals...the ones that I have scrapped with from the very beginning, so I have special place in my "scrappy" heart for them. Thank you Susan for getting our little group together.

Got home and got busy today making some Graduation cards. I didn't do to much to them and I was trying to use up paper that I had. I thought they turned out cute for as simple as they were

Please enjoy and leave me a note....

The day before five...

We spent the day before Deegan's birthday visiting Aunt Emily and Andy in Charleston. It was such a great day and the weather was beautiful. It was a perfect day for walking around Charleston and having an early birthday celebration. Every time we would tell someone that we were there to celebrate his birthday he would tell them that it was the day before his birthday.

Grandchildren are the best!

Thanks for stopping by and come see me soon.

Hello has been awhile again...but I have been crafting, just not posting! I have had painters in my house all last week and this week too, so I was trapped in my craft room for a couple of days. What a great place to be stuck!

I did this layout of our 2 year old grand daughter. She is a "hot mess"! Large and in charge most of the time. I love that little banner and who knew it was on the Lyrical letters Cartridge. I have used that cart a million times and never have I even noticed that! Anyway...just used that and lots of different patterned paper.

Thanks for stopping by and come see me again!
