Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday afternoon everyone.  It's been an absolutely lovely day here in Central TX.  Temps are in the high 80's and I am loving it!  I made a card earlier in the week for my card groups weekly challenge and darn if I did not forget to share it here with you all.  So here it is:

The challenge was to make a Black & white and add one other color.  So I added teal, my fav color!  Hope you enjoy seeing it as much as I enjoyed making it....that's it for now.  Thanks so much for looking and leaving some comment love.  I do read them all and do my best to pop by your blog if you leave me the address.....

Until next time,
Happy Crafting

Just a little RAK

Happy Hump Day all.  Well I rec'd my new Grand Calibur Machine and it came with 5 new die sets, none of which I had, Yay for me.  So I made a RAK for a new Card-making friend,  now I am not thrilled it came out, but that happens sometimes.  The ideas in our minds don't always turn out as we think they will, lol.  So I used one of the new dies I recieved called Whimsical Tree, very cute! Colored it with a dauber and pear tart momento ink.  Embossed half of card front with my fav EF polka dots.  Added some green ribbon and pearl and green bling, then added more pearls all around edges of card. Also ran the pear tart in over the raised dots on bottom half of card.  Then stamped oval frame and sentiment from Just Right Stamps in pear tart again.  I think in future will use dark green color for sentiment, it's a little hard to see in person.  But all in all it's a cute card I guess and here it is:

Well that's it for now, off to see what else I can make with the new dies.  Thanks for stopping by and leaving some comment love.  

Until next time,
 Happy crafting

Had to share ;)

Hello everyone!  I have to tell you all that last Tuesday evening I was playing in craft area and low and behold I broke my Grand Calibur!  And worst part of it it was totally my fault.  I was in a hurry to get something done as we sometimes do, and used the wrong plate sandwich.  So it made that horrible metal grinding noise and snaps and crackles!  I almost cried, but such is the life of a crafter right. My DH came running in, b/c he heard the noise and my words and new it could not be good.  The sweetie that he is he took it all apart but was not able to fix it, b/c The teeth on the gears actually broke.  He was able to get the plates and  my embossing folder out luckily.  I was so mad at my self let me tell you.  But DH saved the day again and he  ordered me another Grand Calibur from get this "HSN".  After talking with my mom about where he could order one for me as Valentines gift.  And the great news is it will be here sometime today, we just checked the tracking and it's out on the UPS truck for delivery, Yippee...... Happy Crafter dance going on here. 
Had to share with you all b/c I knew you would understand my feeling of anger and happiness....

Thanks for popping by and I'll be adding more later today hopefully  :)

Until next time,

Back in the swing of things

Hello crafty peeps!  I am so so sorry for being a way so long!  Life sometimes takes over and we just have to go with the flow.  I have found my mojo and hope I can keep him motivated to stick around.  I have been very lazy today, it's on the cool side here in Texas and I really want to make some cards for valentines day and I have ideas just not what I need.  Ain't that the way it happens.  But I am going to be stopping by Hobby Lobby with my Mom tomorrow and I will be getting the bits I need.  Maybe I'll get busy on some RAK cards to get out soon. Will post once I'm done.

So what have you all been crafting?  I am sharing a couple cards that my MIL, made.  She lives with us and has Alzheimer's.  She did a great job for her 1st time, don't you agree?  Here are her 2 creations, one for DH, her son and 1 for my mom from her. 

Are these not just to sweet.  She has never ever made a card before.  She picked everything out and layered it on the cards how she wanted it and I glued it all together for her.  I am so proud of her! :)

Until next time
