congrats on your promo at work! I hope you will still have time to stamp and share your designs!! And go have fun getting candy for yourself too!!

So Elaine, send me your snail mail address and I will get your goodies out to you. There is a link to my email on the sidebar.

Thanks all to commenting. This was so much fun. It is fun to hear why you all like scrapbooking and/or card making. I love it because at the end of the day, week or year I have something to show for it and it is always nice to have something to do on rainy days with friends ;-) Have a great day and know that each of you are inspirations to me! Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Ryan

Yesterday was my nephews birthday. When my Mom was here I made a card and sent it off with her to give to him. He was not all that excited about the card but loved the cash inside ;-) He is now 7 years old and I just cannot believe it, amazing how time flies. Love him so much and cannot wait to see him and his brother at christmas;-)

Picture of Candy and Card...

So I finally made it to the store to pick up some stuff for the blog candy and this is what I found. I may include some other stuff as I think that there is more to share than what I have pictured here. Included here are two 'G' clear stamp sets and blocks from Michaels and a small little scrapbooking kit. It has all the stuff to make that little album that is included. I think it is great if you have a small event or one day that you want to scrapbook. Such a neat idea. I hope you enjoy!

The other thing is that I got around to making a card for my coworker who is having a baby. I just love this little 3x3 card, quick and simple and yet I get to say that I finally did a little stamping ;-) So exciting.

Thanks for checking and have a great day!

Wow, would you look at all those hits...

Wow, I cannot believe how many hits there have been in just a few days... It is amazing what a little candy will do to your blog. I was hoping to get to the store yesterday or today but did not so will have to figure out blog candy sometime this week. I will definately have it figured out and posted before I draw out the winner. Thanks for checking and have a great week!!!

WSC20 and blog candy...

Well I actually got a sketch challenge done on the weekend that it was for, yeah!!! This was a little challenging until I figured out which stamps and paper I was going to use. The sketch itself was great, I really enjoyed it and how the card turned out! I mostly used CTMH paper and stamps with a new ribbon clip that I just got from Melissa Frances. I love how it turned out...

Now I just noticed that I am almost at 1000 hits, cannot believe it. I knew if I made it that far that I would want to celebrate and so here I am offering my first blog candy. I need to figure out what I would like to give away and may need to make a stop at the store tomorrow to get some great stuff, so will post the picture either tomorrow or Tuesday. I have been promoted at work so this week will be a little hectic (working 50 hours, ouch!). I will draw a winner on Sunday Sept 30th, using a random number generator. To help me celebrate please leave a comment on this post letting me know what you like best about scrapbooking or card making. Thanks and Good luck!

Wow, I finally got to do some stamping!!! I was glad to finally get a chance to make something. We went to my Dad's this past weekend and that cut down on my crafting time, tremendously! But I got back to it tonight and am glad. So here is my card for this weekends sketch challenge that Beate at Fresh and Fun put together. I am also sending this card to Victoria, yeah someone to send it to as well. I am glad.

Catching Up and WSC18

Wow, I cannot believe how long it has been since I have posted anything. I have been very busy and not crafting busy.

It seems like life has taken a hold of us and I am trying to make it to the surface of the water and take a breath before it takes off again. I keep telling my coworkers that I feel like a cat in water! You know the saying a fish out of water, well I just didn't think that it described it well enough. You know how cats LOVE water and how they would do anything to get back out of the water, clawing it or anything that gets in their way, well that is how I have been feeling but have been declawed so cannot even get a grab of anything that may swim by, that is my life these past couple of weeks.

On a good note we celebrated our 3rd aniversary and watched our little grow pass 16 months old. She is growing just so fast and is such a blessing.

Well anyway, back to the reason that I started this post, I finally got to do some crafting and made a card for this weekends sketch challenge that Beate has posted. It was really easy - I thought so anyway - and I had fun putting it together. Thanks for checking!
