Make A Wish





Good Morning.  Hope your week is going well.  Can you believe it is the end of August?  I was driving down my road the other day and notice the leaves have started changing!  I can't wait!!   I hope we have a long fall season.  This weekend I made my first Fall card! 

This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we want you to make a card with the theme "Off the page".  As long as your project has something that is off the page you can play!!  I still am trying to use colors that are not my norm.  I love this color combo but had a really hard time taking a picture of it. I finally ventured outside so see if it would be washed out.  It is better than the inside one's but still does not show the real colors of the card.

Back to School



Good Morning.  Can you believe it is the end of August already?  I actually shut my AC off for the first time in over a month and love it!!!  I personally can't wait for Fall. I love opening my windows and enjoying the nice weather.  

Along with the end of the summer comes sending the kids back to school.  This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations the theme is just that.  Back to School!   I used this Saturated Canary Stamp that I love and helps a great cause.  Krista is letting you take this and another adorable stamp for free and asking that, only if you can, donate to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  It is not mandatory but it is a great cause and you get some wonderful stamps.  To read all about it and get the free digi's visit Krista's Blog

Happy 1st Birthday!

Good Morning.  Hope you had a good weekend.  Mine was uneventful which was great.  The weather was hot, humid and rainy.  A perfect weekend to relax in the AC and make a card. 

 Lately I have been trying to change up some of the standard Pink, Blue and Purple colors that I have been using. I get into these ruts where I use the same colors and layouts all the time.   I found this DP and thought it would be perfect for this stamp and to mix things up.   I like the way it turned out.  It fits in perfect for this weeks challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.   We want you to make a card or project for a child.  So get out those cutesie stamps and play along!

Housework - Oh My

Good Morning. I hope your week is going well.  My week is crazy at work.  Way too much to do and not enough time.  Have you been watching the Olympics?  I find myself watching things that I would never watch channel surfing on a normal weekend but most of it I find really interesting.  I can't image someone saying that I was the #1 for something in the world.  What a feeling that must be. 

Today at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we have a fun challenge.  It is The Letter D.  This means that you need to use something on your project that begins with D.  You can use a Digi, Designer Paper, Dots, Die Cuts, get the idea?  I have Digi, Designer Paper and Die Cuts.

Happy Birthday Nicole

Good Morning!  I hope you are having a good week.  I had last week off and had meetings Monday and spent Tuesday and Wednesday catching up so I am late in posting this week.  Any free time I found has been spent watching the Olympics.  It's funny how caught up in it I get.  I watch things that I would never stop and watch other times.  It is always exciting to see how talented these people are.
