Hey...it's the weekend!

Yay, it's the weekend! Happy St Patty's Day. I had a good week. Completed my Bible journal page and completed a few cards for some challenges. I also have been playing with my mix media supplies that have been waiting for me to open them. Currently waiting for my Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks to arrive. Placed an advance order and now I am holding myself back from ordering just one to try out. Tired of seeing people having fun on YouTube while they play with them. Exhale, inhale. They will arrive soon. I hope...



Above is one of the cards that I created this week. The main die is from Tattered Lace. It was free with magazine #39. The sentiment is from Anna Griffin die set and the flowers are colored die cuts from Tattered Lace.

Thanks for stopping by and wishing you a great crafty weekend!

Hugz,

Shirley

Good Morning Sunshine

Hello my crafty friends! I am a Guest Designer this week in the Twisted Thursday Challenge at The Outlawz site, www.outlawzchallenges.ning.com/.  Woo hoo!!!

The Outlawz is a great site that has a different challenge to participate in each day. A good way to get your mojo back or keep it going. In addition, these challenges have wonderful Design Team members and participants. Check them out and participate in one or all of the challenges. Hope to see you there.

It is National Craft Month (NCM) . Okay, I think every month is craft month. However, in honor of NCM, I am learning a new craft. What will that be? So many to choose from...  Will be back later and let you know how it turned out. Until then, here is my card that I made for the Twisted Thursday Challenge. 




I used the flower, butterfly and sentiment from MHK designs, Beginnings and Endings collection. 

Thanks for stopping by. Now go out and create smiles with your creations. 

Hugz,

Shirley

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Hello my lovelies!
I am stepping to Mary Mary as I type this post. Have to get those last steps in on my FitBit, lol.

It's the weekend and I always have things that I would like to do but time keeps on ticking into the future no matter how often I try to get it to just pause!!!

I have been spending too much time lately on the designs of my card and it is slowing me down. Need to get the craft room organized, too. Here are a couple of cards that I made.





I used papers from Club Scrap (http://clubscrap.com/) and the digi is by Robert Jackson (http://fineartsbyrobertjackson.com/new-digital-arrivals.html). I also used dies from Stampin Up. The embossing folder is by Anna Griffin.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a Blessed weekend!

Hugz,

Shirley

What's going on?

Hello my crafty friends!
Yesterday was such a beautiful day in Chicago. The temp got to 70 degrees. WHAT???? I have been enjoying the great weather but the temps will be falling and snow...oh no...snow is predicted for the weekend. Oh well, it is still winter. I know my garden bulbs are confused. Praying for all the gardens to become stronger as a result of this brief Spring weather.

So what have you been crafting lately? I have been catching up on my cardmaking because I got so far behind. Here are a few that I made.





















Wishing you a Blessed day and thanks for looking!

Love ya!
