Back in the swing....

I made this for a friend who has been sick. I just love the image! I got it from SJ's Little Musings. She has some amazing images!! The picture is lousy as always! Would you expect any less from me?! I find myself using this paper a lot. My only problem is that I don't have anything close to that darker teal color!

So many get wells....

I have so many get well cards to make. I pulled together a quick one the other night so I could get it in the mail fast. I forget the name of this SU dp, but I love it.

I've been going out of my mind with my laptop. My keyboard has been working on and off. It's really weird. The first time it happened, I pulled out my mouse USB and plugged it back in. It worked. Now that's not working and I have to go into the settings and sometimes the keyboard says it's working and other times it doesn't even recognize that I have a keyboard. I need to bring it to my techie friend to look at. If it's a big issue and I have to send it to HP, I need to do it soon since it's just about a year old (June or July).

Passion for Crafts blog candy....

Go on over to Debbie's Passion for Crafts blog and check out her amazing cards and take a chance on this blog candy!

I would love to have this cute set!

Happy Late Mornings....

My work friend is taking advantage of the early retirement recently offered. I am soooo jealous! This is the one time I wish I were older. Anyway, she commented that she is getting tired of the early mornings so I chose this image to be funny. The digi stamp is from Stretchnbubbles.

Hope you have a good weekend!

So sad.....

I had to make a quick sympathy card last night for my husband's family who lost a young man (33)this week. It's not my best work. I don't like making sympathy cards when I actually need them but I've depleated my stash. :-( I'll have to start making them again to build it back up.

I'll try to find the source of the digi tomorrow. I used CTMH papers and an unknown piece of cs that is leathery looking.

I took a vacation day today but I won't be relaxing. I have a few errands to run, cards to make, and a wake to go to. I'm looking forward to the weekend!

A streak of luck....

I won a digi stamp at Inspired by Stamps yesterday. I got to choose from these cute stamps at Deedee's Digis. I chose the flamingo set. Deedee was an absolute doll! I had trouble with the image at first (not the image, the operator) and she was so helpful!

Then I got home today and opened my gorgeous stamp set from Vicki at Wizard's Hangout in today's mail. That was quick! Can't wait to use both. I guess I'm thinking there's a third somewhere in my future?!

Another hillbilly....

Just loving these hillbilly images for my guy cards! My nephew turned 30 and we went to his party the other day. He got a chuckle out of this one.

I still need to edit with the correct website for these images. They seem to have disappeared and my friend gave me the wrong one from the post before. I'll find it though....

The guitar man...

My hubby plays guitar so I made this Digidoodleshop hillbilly for him. He got a kick out of it, especially the silver knobs (no idea what they're called). The picture is horrible as always. But would you expect any less of me?! LOL Have a nice weekend!

Mom's Day cards...

Here are a couple of quick cards I made for Mother's Day. I'll have to edit later with credit for the digi images.

I am using this one for the Belli Challenge. All you have to do is use a hole punch. Go and check it out! The circle sentiment on the first card is a freebie from Sugar Creek Hollow. The cute little guy with flowers is from Meljen's. She has a ton of adorable freebies. I used CTMH printed papers and SU cs.

I got the cute Happy Mother's Day stem on the second card from Stampin Inspirations. Go and check out the amazing projects on her blog. I'd love to have one that says Happy Birthday or something else too.

The cute owl on the last one is from Lost in Paper Scraps. I got a ton of sweet freebies a while back and I am always pulling them out to use. I used SU dp and cs on this one.

I won, I won....

I was doing my usual blog browsing today when my name popped out at me! I won blog candy at Wizard's Hangout. I'm so excited!

I made a few very last minute Mom's Day cards. I made a quick one Sat. afternoon and another after my mom left for my brother's brunch. Talk about stress!! I completely forgot to post the photos yesterday though. I'll try to remember tonight. Hope you had a nice Mother's Day and/or weekend!

And don't forget to check out my sidebar for a chance to win some candy at Rainbow Echo Designs!

Busy as a bee....

Life has been way too busy lately. I haven't had much time to craft. I've been stealing cards from my stash lately because I just don't have the time to make them. This weekend I absolutely have to make my mom her mother's day card and also one from the boys. I want to make a mother-to-be one for my son's gf as well. Then my hubby's bday is Tues. so I'll need to make two cards for him.

Anyway, I just wanted to wish my mother friends a very Happy Mother's Day!! And I hope the rest of you have a great weekend!
