Thank you!

I just wanted to come on rather then being M.I.A to let you all know I have decided for now that i am going to take time away from this blog...not that I am on here a lot but i just don't have time to keep it up right now. I will continue to create when I can but right now at this point in my life I find I am at a cross road and I am needing to focus my time on me and my little man.
Thank you all so much for all of your support with my cards and I will continue to pop in at everyones blog from time to time.

Thank you!

Happy BIrthday!

Good Morning! and happy hump day for those of you in the working force. I really enjoyed making the long card for last weeks Freshly Made that i had decided i wanted to make another long card, except i decided to make my own sketch.

As one might notice I used this same DP for my Mojo this week but I really like this paper and well it was the scrap pieces left over so what better way to use it.

I really wish I could have captured the colors better but I was being impatient and well there is no light outside to help with the lighting, so i did the best I could : )

I hope you have an amazing day and Thank you so much for stopping by!

Freshly made #20

Good morning! I am down to the last wire this week with my {Freshly Made} but i guess better late then never, considering last week i didn't manage to get one done. I was really excited to make a long card as i had yet to make one, so thanks Lesley for throwing this in to the mix.

I do apologize that the quality of the picture isn't wonderful but it was the best i could do with the dark and gloomy day we are having so far.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! and I hope I can get some creative spark back into me this week.

Happy Monday

Mojo 226

Good day! Well i am back this a little distracted last week so i was MIA. Mojo put out a nice easy clean sketch to play with this week. I decided to turn on some TV shows last night on the ol' computer and sit down and craft, so here is what i came up with.

As you can see i didn't pay attention to the sketch so instead of doing the top or bottom in a different paper i kept it all one piece......sure wish i would have payed closer attention because i do think i would have liked a different print on the bottom. However i am happy with the card and it will give me something else to try if i get time.

Supplies: Red and white cardstock, My mind's Eye- Blink of an Eye DP, Making memories butterfly, Verve stamps-Birthday phrases and Ranger liquid pearls.

I hope you all had a great start to your week and Thanks again for popping in!

Just playing around

Good morning! I hope everyone is having a great start to there week, althought I'm sure as I am posting this it would be to early to tell. Last night i had decided to plunk myself down in my craft room catch up on a show i missed last week and play with some scraps. I was able to create a card, almost two and some flower pieces.

All of the paper used were bits and pieces of My minds Eye from a few of the Stella and Rose collections, the cute sentiment on my card was a Verve stamp and i used up some misc buttons, pearls, paper flowers and ribbon.

Thank you for stopping in I hope you have a great Monday!

Freshly Made #17

Good morning! Well i wanted to get a quick post up this morning for Freshly made, Rita put up a great sketch this week. I will be honest i really don't like this card but i started, so i finished it, and i'm going to post it.

So i think what is was for me was the Purple....not that i don't like purple but i never use purple so i think it threw me off.

Supplies: Dark and a light purple cardstock, DP bits and pieces My minds Eye and Momenta, i used my Spellbinders- Impressabilities- pebbles to add some texture on my base, Stamp is from Verve, added some stickles to the flower to give it some sparkle, and a misc pearl.
