Sweet and Sassy

I had great plans to do more crafting this week but it just hasn't happened but I did get one card done! Yay!

The stamp is from The Greeting Farm and is called Friday Night. She's part of the Creepin Crew, which are always so fun and different! And yes, it's more of the Basic Grey Lemonade paper! I'm determined to finish it up!

Hope you have a great day! Between lightning striking and causing a power surge last week that took out most of our electronics and my debit card being comprimised this week (to the tune of $948), I'm looking forward to a nice and easy rest of the week/month!! I did get a new haircut today--super short. I like it, just hope I can make it look decent tomorrow--isn't that always the real trick after a haircut??

Wish you were here!

This cutie is from the monthly La La Land Crafts kit from June so she's not available for sale yet. I truly love the monthly kits-so fun to get stamps and dies each month that coordinate together! 

I am getting closer to using up my Basic Grey Lemonade paper pad, yay!! Hope you're not sick of seeing creations using it yet!

I also used an older Sketch Saturday Sketch, Sketch 306. I've used this sketch before, I guess I just really like it! :)

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Always thinking of you

This card took many interesting turns as it was being created, LOL! Do any of you have a vision of a card and then when you go to create it the process just goes a totally different direction? That's this card in a nutshell! Regardless it was fun to create!

The flower has Wink of Stella pen all over it but it doesn't show up well in the photo.

I'm entering this card into my yahoo group's Friday Challenge #14-flowers and also into the Sweet Sunday Sketch #277

We are enjoying Fluffy so much! I never dreamed a lizard would be so entertaining! He's starting his first shed since we've had him and it's so neat to see the fresh skin emerge from under the dull skin.

Have a happy day!

You make me happy!

Way back in November I challenged myself to use up 10 6x6 paper pads so that I could get a new one. I have been good and not bought any new ones but I've only finished off 1 6x6 paper pad. I decided I wanted to work on this a bit more diligently so I'm determined to finish off my Basic Grey Lemonade pad so be prepared to see several cards all with the same colors/paper!!

I used my new Day Off Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm. I thought it was appropriate since I only seem to find energy to craft on my days off anymore. LOL! Her hair really threw me as to how to color it so I peeked at The Greeting Farm site and CASE'd how Alyce had colored it. 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges~

Thanks for stopping by!! ohhh I almost forgot, I have to share our new pet-Fluffy! He/she is a baby bearded dragon and oh my are we smitten with Fluffy! Who knew a lizard could be so fun!!

See soon!!

Sweet Molli

Oh my goodness! This card took me way longer than it should have. I think all the time away from crafty made me very rusty at this cardmaking stuff!! But I forced myself to finish it so now maybe the next one won't be as difficult!

Isn't she so cute!! She's, Sweet Molli, from the new line of stamps at La La Land Crafts! She's Marci's big sister, how fun!! I paper pieced her outfit and also used the heart on her shirt to make the little hearts as embellishments.

A little of this, a little of that...

I think my creativity is slowly working it's way back to me. I am finally starting to visualize cards again in my head and I'm getting that "itch" to stamp so I take these as great signs! I'm hoping to maybe sit down tonight and see if I can accomplish anything!

It's been a rough week here. Freckles (our 6 year old Jack Russell/Beagle mix dog) was diagnosed last Wednesday with a malignant tumor on her leg. Long story short, we are not going to do surgery because of where it's located but going to try some medication and just make her as comfortable and happy for as long as we can. 

Right now she's still not showing any signs of being in pain or being uncomfortable so that's good. It's still devastating to all of us as we love her so much.

I've also been busy at work and coming home pretty wiped out each night but that's a good sign. I still love my job and in a month or so will have been there a year!! 

I miss blogging. Seems like so many people, me included, have gotten so caught up on social media that blogging takes a backseat. I miss it. I've met so many wonderful crafters through my blog and well, I just enjoy it, hoping to get back to it more. 

So tell me--what's up in your world?? If leave me a comment by Friday, June 26, 2015 I will do a little drawing on Saturday, June 27, 2015 for a gift certificate to one of my favorite stamp stores-to be determined by me. :)

Have a happy day!
