Thank you Heather

I saw this card of Heather's and I loved it!! I thought wow that would be a great scrapbook page. I have had the hardest time sitting down and coming up with a good page.

Hope you like it!!

Monday Mailer #4

Don't you just love my hempy lion? I used hemp for his tail and for his mane. I stamped the head of the lion three times and layered each layer on pop dots with hemp on the bottom. I should have taken a close up of his little layered head. But it was already late so I stuck him in an envie and sent him off.

Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Brocade Blue, and More Mustard. Word Window punch

Lots of distressing. I just love the look of distressing and sponging. Card fold is regular size with the front folded back.

Monday Mailers 2 & 3

I finally attempted a file folder card for my second Monday Mailer. I cheated a little on the tab since I didn't have my tab punch with me, and traced around one from another card.
Ileana if you see this, I hope you know you will see these soon. Sorry for the wrong address problem.

The third Monday Mailer is a super cute idea I found while blog surfing. I used the heart from Priceless to make the shamrock and the "lucky" came from the Tre chic background stamp. I also made it easy on myself and used the layout from Cannie's Monday Mailer to me last week. I loved the Birthday Whimsy card she sent me so much. I really like how this turned out if I do say so myself!!
Old Olive, Night of Navy and More Mustard.
I am determined, Determined to do Cyndi's scrapbook challenges this weekend or during Easter Break. I'm going to catch up. I am. I am. I am. If I have to hire a maid. LOL What a joke!

No Hitter!!

I feel like screaming to the top of my lungs to the whole world so I figure this is the best way to do just that.

My son had his second start for Varsity and pitched a no-hitter tonight!! I knew he would do extremely well this year but I sure didn't expect a no-hitter. I am so proud of him!

Here's the write up in the local paper.

Here's the picture that was on the front on the Sports Page. How cool is that??

Monday Mailer #1

I am in a yahoo group with some super talented NC Stampin Up demos. I joined the Monday Mailers to make me get in the stamp room and stamp cards. Scrapbooking is too easy for me to put off. I love receiving beautiful cards in the mail. All the cards from this group are usually just wonderful. It is so nice to get pleasant things in the mail once a week! This months theme is "Anything but Flowers". I usually don't do flowers (having two boys) so that had my name all over it.

Here is the card I'm sending to Ileana Roberts this week. Hope she likes it!!

Recipe: River rock, Blue Bayou, Close to Cocoa cardstock; Really Rust ink; Big Pieces and It's all Good stamp sets, plus Close to Cocoa Satin Ribbon. Techniques - paper distressing with scissors, paper piercing, and sponging.

Better late than Never?!

Cyndi's 3rd sketch.

Just haven't had time to breath.

My first attempt at sewing on a card or page. What do you think?

I used some old SU retired patterned paper.(Thanks to Beth) Close to Cocoa paper and ribbon and Coral paper. Sponged all the edges with Close to Cocoa. Jumbo outline alpha for the title. It just felt like it was missing something, so I decided to attempt the sewing. I really like how it turned out and gave the pages just that extra umph. And it was easy!!

Thanks for looking.
