I'm babysitting today, that means Abbey is occupied for the day, and since I cleaned the house from top to bottom for a showing last night...I almost have a free day! I received my Blog candy from Carla, for completing one of her sketch challenges. What a sweet bag of goodies, it's been calling for me since last Friday, so this morning I had to sit down and do a little something with it. So here is what Iv'e come up with, hope you like!

Thanks so much to Carla, her sketches and cards are fabulous, she's always a wonderful source of inspiration!

My how time flies!

I don't realize how much time passes between posting and blog "surfing" until I go to visit and post comments and everyone else has posted 2-3 cards!. Here is one I decided to enter for the CPS contest. I decided to go with the Christmas in July theme, as I've really been into the Christmas mode lately, and it's just what is appealing to me right now! The photo of this one is not that great, but I can't be sure I'll have time to write a post tomorrow, so it's either now, or who knows when.

All the entries for this contest are simply amazing. I'm so in awe of all the talent out there, and it is so great to see the variety of cards made from one sketch!
All stamps on this card are from Skipping Stones Design.

Not much

going on around here these days! I've been working on a couple of things, but they aren't coming together like I'd like. I've really got my mind stuck on Christmas lately, so I thought I'd share a couple of christmas cards I did for the Papercrafts call earlier in the year. Needless to say, they didn't get picked up! Oh well, I still like them.

Both of these were Sketchs from Papercrafts, but for the one with the tree, I made the sketch the card. The ribbon unties, the flap lifts up, and the sentiment (or note) goes under the big red circle!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

More stickers

Stickers are something I hardly ever use on a card, simply because I don't really know how to use them. I know that may sound funny to some of you, but I find them really difficult to work with. Well the challenge at Caardvarks really made me sort though my stash, see what I had, and figure out what to do with them. Here are a couple of Christmas cards I put together using Carla's latest sketch (can you tell I really like this one?) and stickers.

quick post this morning....Abbey's back to preschool now, so while she's gone I have to buckle down and find a this point, any job, as time's wasting away........!

Found this sweet pkg. of rub-ons at the local durg store. I just loved them and the were only $1.29 can't beat that! Used my Studio G, stamps, and my favorite white satin ribbon!
This is just a card I made to use up some PP, CS, and Lace scraps I had kickin' around. The metal embellishment came from dollarama! Pkg. of 12 for a $1 and they had all kinds of different styles.
Made this card using Carla's new sketch and some Daisy D's PP's. Carla was having some trouble with her old blog and now has new blog set up and you can get to her by clicking here.

To all you wondeful ladies who come visit, I apologize for not getting time to comment, but I have been visiting! I promise as soon as I get a chance I'll sit down and start sharing some love!

Have a great day!

Hi all!

Well I babysat yesterday, so I managed quite a bit in the scrapping dept. I find it amazing how one new kid in the house can occupy the others for an entire day! Anyway, I set out to make Alicia's sheetload of cards yesterday, but that didn't happen. I have a very diffucult time doing masculine cards, a few months ago I won a Cosmo cricket prize pkg. from Scraplovers and some of the PP's in the pkg. were, what I thought, wonderful masculine PP's. When I saw Alicia's great sheetload for this month, I though, great, I'll use up these PP's and have a bit of a stash of masculine cards. I went and cut out all the pieces, but when I went to put them together, it just wasn't working for me.....nothing to do with the the pattern, everyone else's (Lisa's, Lee's, Alicia's) looked fantastic, which is why I wanted to give this a try, but I just gcouldn't get it together? Must have been the PP's, I don't know? Anyhow, here I had all these little pieces....what am I to do with them? Well, I played around and came up with something that worked for me (still have a lot of pieces to put more together) and using the die cut pieces that came with the PP's, here is what I have started putting together. What do ya think? There are a couple that I would consider more feminine, but that's good to! Thanks for the inspiration Alicia, I'll have to try again with some different PP's and see if I can get some cards made using your pattern!

In other news Berg's now back in school! Second year in school and we have yet to actually catch the bus on the first day! LOL. Last year, no one could tell me what time the bus would be coming by the house? We waited 1/2 an hour assumed we'd missed it, and I drove him. We hadn't waited long enough. This year the school changed it's hours. We were told to be at the bus stop 1/2 and hour earlier, we opted for 40 mins. early (to be on the safe side) we still missed it! Anyway, we didn't miss it by much because it came at 7:50 this morning, which is about the time we were going out the back door yesterday morning! We're on track now!

Just had DD to the Doctor this morning, She's had this terrible croupy cough now for about a month (Had to wait 2 wks to get into the doctor, as back to school time is busy with all the vacinations etc...) Medicine and her cool humidifier help, but it just wasn't going away. Her chest is so congested and full, she's now on antibiotics and a steroid inhailer, if it's still congested next week when we go back she's going to have to have chest x-rays to make sure that it's nothing more serious!
Well thanks for listen to all my ramblings! sometimes a gal just needs to chat!

Have a good one! TFL

Just a quick

post for you this morning. Had a busy weekend AGAIN! We managed to get up to the camp for two nights, just the four of us and had a great relaxing and quiet weekend!

We now off for one last playdate, before school starts tomorrow, then grocery shopping, and some last minute back to school shopping! It's gonna be a long one.

Here is a card I did, for the latest Sketch This sketch and it also fits with Carrdvarks latest contest, as the sentiment is a sticker! Enjoy!
