Baby Banner

Hi Everyone,

Hope all is well. I have had an exciting week so far, lets just say when you live with an 82 year old man who all of a sudden decides he can cook (even though he never has his whole life), you get to meet the fire department! Yup no lies, my father in law who lives downstairs in an inlaw apartment set off the smoke alarms yesterday which are wired into my house alarm. When I ran down to see if he was ok, I missed the call from the alarm company thus explaining the fire trucks in my driveway lol. Never a dull moment around here.

Of course if you lived here and saw the smoke coming out the house, the dogs barking, one going the bathroom on my rug because she was scared and me trying to hold it all together you might have enjoyed the show.

But with that behind me now I wanted to post something a bit different today. It is the banner I made for my daughter's baby shower. We are doing a little pumpkin theme. I used my cricut to cut the onsies and letters, I used a die for the pumpkin and some eyelets for the snaps. I think it came out quite cute.

 This is the whole banner, sorry about the lighting.

How cute are those onsies.

Little witch


Today I am showing one of the cards my husband asked me to make. He has three women that work for him in the office and he is giving them some candy for Halloween but wanted some cards. I made three using different images from La La Land but kept to similar papers.

I cannot even believe that Halloween is almost here, time is flying by.Two weeks from now will be the baby shower for my daughter, I will have to post some stuff I made for that soon.

Here is my card:

Gotta love Marci she is so cute. I colored her with copics added some Stickles and there you have it.
Of course I seriously think I am addicted to Stickles but that is a problem for another day lol!

Thanks for stopping by!

All Sorts Challenge:  Orange/Purple/Black or all 3.

Fall Flowers

Hi All,

So I finally finished jury duty...GUILTY... such an awful crime too, so glad I am off that case. Now I can just enjoy the fall for what it is FUN! Love this time year, the air around here is crisp, the leaves are changing and all the fall flowers are so colorful. I know most people see spring or the start of the new year as a refresher but not me, I see fall as perfect start of anything new, you know new school year, new holiday season, new clothing season, etc. you get my drift. Why I might even learn to be a better cook this fall.....all right let's not get carried away haha.

Also would like to mention, I was lucky enough to win a challenge over at Fab 'n' Funky for my Feeling Sassy card how exciting. Also got top three for a couple of cards. I mention this not for praise, but because I want everyone to know I appreciate that my entry was picked! Thanks!!!

So my card today is a thanksgiving card using a digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil. She is called bunches. I colored her with my copics and added some glitter to her flowers. Not the usual Thanksgiving colors but I like it.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Feeling Sassy

Hi Everyone,

What a rough week, this jury duty stuff is killing me! I believe I have one more day this coming Tuesday. Hopefully by then a verdict will be had. Today I needed a little de-stress time. What better way than by coloring.

So this card I have today, the image I won from Sassy Studios which I absolutely love! I colored her once again using my copics. The sentiment is from Art Impressions, but I must admit is so appropriate for this stamp!

She is just so sassy!!!

I am entering her in the following challenges:

Sassy Studio:  Spots and Dots
Fab n Funky:  Sassy ladies

Love the fall

Hi Friends,

Hope you are all well. I have been a bit busy, got called for jury duty and I have been assigned a case which means for the next week or so I must report to court every day. It is rather interesting but it causes such chaos in my weekly routine. But I suppose there are a lot worse things I could be doing.

I am in the process of working on the baby shower fun. Invitations have been sent, centerpieces ordered, working on favors, cannot wait, I just love a party! I am so thankful I get to be a grandmother soon.... 4 more months but hey who's counting.

Speaking of thankful....I have created this sweet card using a digital stamp from Sassy's Cheryls.
How cute is she. It is hard to find really cute thanksgiving images, I love her with her cute turkey outfit. I colored her with my copics, added some Stickles and Glossy accents along with the cutest pumpkin charm. I love little charms, although sometimes I have the hardest time figuring how to get them on the card so they hang well haha.

I am entering her in the following challenges:

Incy Wincy:  Thankful for you (Hope you can see it in the corner)
Pinkgem Challenge:  Autumn/Fall
Fussy and Fancy Friday:  Autumn Colors
Sassy Cheryl's:  Anything goes
