Play Day Brewing

Hey Everyone! I have a card to share today! I Know!... I am in as much disbelief as you! We are steadily approaching the Holiday season.. So I figured I would knock out a Halloween card BEFORE the day to celebrate it is here.  For my share I used the set, Sweet Hauntings, found in the Holiday mini catalog. Here is my card - 

 I used the Brick Wall EF, and the Hearth and Home framelits too! To make the apothecary shelf , I scored it with the simply scored vertically and horizontally then added mini brads to resemble drawer pulls. I colored the bottles with both the blendabilities markers and copics, then covered each one with crystal effects, and added the little spider from Happy Scenes to hang from some silver thread for a little whimsy and I just love the outcome! now that is what I call a play day! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

That Time of Year again

Hey Everyone! Super quick post this morning.. I got Paper Crafty! Whoop!! As most of you know it is almost time for the kiddos to head back to the classroom..a joyous occasion in my house, of which I am not afraid to admit :0) .. So I decided to celebrate a little, and make a back to school sampler for my sofa table. 

I used a few sets that I had in my stash.. most are recently retired, but one is a think at least 5 + years old. I really loved sitting down and making this sampler.. maybe the subject matter, but never the less, fun to do with all the little details. :) OK.. I am off to take the kiddos back to school shopping.! 
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Hello Out there....

Hey Everyone!...I have been gone a while from the crafting scene.. but not gone for good. just wanted to let you know that I am still alive and have been busy with other things here and around the house.. 
 In July I got crafty and made a wreath for my and my Mothers front doors. 

and a sampler for her ..

I used a set I found at Mike's and Papers from Doodlebug Designs. These two projects were the last time I got paper crafty.. :( For then it was time to move outside and finish a project that I started in March.. I found an outdoor sectional that I really loved on Pinterest, and it was a DIY .. If it is on Pinterest, it has to be Easy Peasy.. right!? The Plans were very straight forward, but very labor intensive.. Here is our finished sectional - 

My Husband and I finished just in time to kiss our boys goodbye for their week at Scout camp. When they are away for that week it gives me time to REALLY clean their room...AND it was about time for these 2 teenage boys to upgrade from baby blue to a more sophisticated color.. Here are the before and afters of that project.. 

Needless to say when they came home from camp they were genuinely surprised and that made all parties involved very happy. :) 

Just wanted to share where I have been, and that I will be getting inky soon.. I miss you and my stamps.. :) take care, and thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Bright Future

Hey Everyone! LONG time... right? I have been busy with the busy stuff outside since the weather has been nice.. The kiddos are almost out of school, and their Summer is almost in full swing. But before that can happen, we need to attend a few family Grad parties.. ..So that leads me to this share today. I obviously needed to sit and create a few cards and gifts for the said graduates, and I am not one to just give a card with $$ in it.. So I made something to put the money in....

I made a box using my tea box tutorial, then just decorated it with the stamp set Bravo and Blue ribbon. I found a little jar at Michael's that looked like a light bulb, I rolled up some cash, and threw in some lemon heads for color and attached the computer generated sentiment "for your bright future!" I attached some more sentiments to the inside of  the Mortar board lid  - 

I  just scored the strip of stock at the same measurement of the inside of the cap lid, then stamped it with some more of the sentiments from the set Bravo.. Love this set! I am sure they are going to love the presentation as much as I do..OK.. off to get dinner started.. :) thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Paper - Brilliant Blue, Whisper White, Gold Foil
Ink - Black , Brilliant Blue, Crushed Curry

A sketch and two cards
