Mojo Monday 413

Monday, a no work Monday too! Yesterday was a quiet day. I puttered around the house in the morning and then went over to Brian and Kim’s to fill out the advance passenger info for the flight to London. We also booked our tickets on the Eurostar to go to Paris overnight. I have never been there so that should be fun! After we ran to the Apple Store, BJ’s and BestBuy and then had dinner. I came home and watched some TV, I have a lot to do and not much motivation. I hate when that happens.

Monday and it’s time for another Mojo Monday sketch challenge…

Mojo413

This card contains goodies from lots of different places! The card base is the usual Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Mint Macaroon that I embossed with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered to the card with SNAIL. The panel is a piece of paper from a Heidi Swapp 6×6 Paper Pad and I backed it with a piece of Rose Red. A strip of Basic Black goes down the left side. My flowers are cut from Solar White 80lb and Rose Red using the Ellen Hutson Bold Blooms Stand Alone and matching Dies. They are adhered to each other with Ranger Multi-Matte Medium and to the card with Foam Tape. The greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Lovely Spring Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto the panel. A few Essentials by Ellen Matte Black and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins complete the card. I like the different color combo and the scribbly flowers! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Stop by the blog to see the rest of the Design Team’s cards and enter your’s in the gallery!

Airmail Missing You

Hello there! I had a lovely day yesterday. Michael and I had lunch with his dad and step-mum at The Cheesecake Factory, we sat outside because it was such a beautiful day. I discovered that his step-mum has a little obsession with pens just like me! After lunch we stopped at Bed, Bath & Beyond and then MJM so Michael could get a new pair of sneakers. We came back to my house and sat and chatted for a bit and then it was time to take him to the airport. We waited as long as he could before saying goodbye. His flight landed a little a late this morning, I hope that he got some sleep on the plane.

I have a quick card for you today that I made using some note cards that I picked up in Marshalls one day with Michael. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I disassembled said note cards and adhered one part to the card for the background and another piece is adhered to that with Fun Foam and SNAIL. Next up I used the Simon Says Stamp Jumbo Jets Dies to cut out a piece of Night of Navy and adhered that to the panel with Foam Tape. The you is cut out from a piece of Real Red with the Simon Says Stamp You Craft Die and adhered to the card with Ranger Multi-Matte Medium. Finally, my greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp You Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in White Hero Arts Embossing Powder on Real Red. I flagged the right side and adhered it to the card with some more Foam Tape. I love when you can take something and change it around and make it your own! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and I thank you for stopping by! Have a great Sunday! ūüôā

Typeset Inked Leaves

It’s Saturday, I went into Manhattan yesterday with Brian to get his passport, again, don’t ask! We stopped by The Ink Pad and I ran in and said hello to Barbara then we stopped at Max Brenner so Brian could pick up some chocolate for Kim (his Kim!). Luckily when we got to Kim’s (my Kim!) we got a space right outside the building. We had to go and get the couch, fit it in the elevator and then bring up from the basement. Thankfully it wasn’t too heavy! The traffic wasn’t too bad on the way home either. We took the old couch out of my house and put the new one in and then ran my couch over to Heather’s. While we were there we re-arranged the furniture and then I went back to Brian’s, he made me a quesadilla and then I came home and puttered around in the Stampin’ Galley for a bit. Michael got here around 10:00. We watched some TV and then called it a night. Later on today we are going to have lunch with his dad and step-mum and then tonight, much to my dismay, I will take him to the airport. I’m happy that he was here for the summer, I had a fantastic one thanks to him!

Today I have a simple masculine birthday card. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped a piece of Solar White 80lb with the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp in Simon Says Stamp Black Ink and cut it out with the Simon Says Stamp Postage Stamp Edge Frames along with a piece of Basic Black that is adhered to the striped piece with Fun Foam and SNAIL. Next up I took a piece of Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper and inked it with Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Ink and my Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool. It’s is then adhered to a piece of Solar White 80lb with a Glue Stick and die cut using the Simon Says Stamp Clustered Leaves Die. A few Glue Dots adhere it to the card. My greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. Like I said, simple and definitely masculine! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and I thank you so much for stopping by! Have a sensational Saturday! ūüôā

Pals Paper Arts 265

A super happy Friday to you! Yes, I’m off from work until September 21st! Michael stopped by the office yesterday and said goodbye to everyone and then I did the same. I did manage to get out of work at 2:00 and I came home and made a few cards and then went to Smashburger for dinner with Michael and Taylor. We stopped off and got some dessert on the way home and then I helped Michael with some pictures on his computer. I still can’t believe that he is going home tomorrow. This afternoon I’m going to take a ride into Manhattan with Brian to pick up his passport, don’t ask, LOL! We are also going to stop by Kim’s and get a couch that she’s giving me and then take my couch over to Heather. Tonight Michael is going to stay by me and then tomorrow night I will take him to JFK. Bummer.

One of the cards that I made yesterday is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…

PPA 265

A super simple sketch and I got my Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit yesterday so I had to play with it! The base of today’s card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card stock with a piece of Basic Black covering the front. For the background I used a piece of paper from the PInkFresh Studios Happy Things 6×6 Paper Pad. The main panel is a piece of Solar White 80lb backed with some more Basic Black. The images are from the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Bits Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Teal, Teeny Bikini¬†and Duckling Ink. The outlines are stamped in Smoke¬†and the strings and bows in Memento Tuxedo Black. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed on a piece of Basic Gray in White Hero Arts Embossing Powder. I adhered the panel to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL, tucking the greeting underneath. To balance the card I adhered some Pretty Pink Posh Spring Mix, Hazel & Ruby The Makery Green with Envy and Essentials by Ellen Iridescent Gray and Matte Black Sequins with some Ranger Multi-Matte Medium on the right side of the panel. I love all of the goodies that you get in this month’s kit especially the fun stamp set! I really hope that you enjoy today’s card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! Thank you for visiting me today and I wish you a fantastic Friday! ūüôā

Freshly Made Sketches 201

Today is the ultimate Friday for me, I’m off from work until September 21st! I have a few things that need to be taken care of but I will be sneaking out a little early today too! Yesterday was another lovely day, sunny and warm. After work I went and picked up Michael from Sue’s. Her sister Arlene was there so we chatted for a bit and then went over to Michael’s dad’s to get the car. His dad is such a nice guy and I got to meet his step-mom! From there we stopped at the grocery store and then headed over to dinner at Brian and Kim’s. Heather and George were there too. It was a little farewell taco night fro Michael. We had a nice evening and even got to Skype with Carolyn for a little bit when we got back to my house. Boy, am I going to miss him when he leaves on Saturday. Here is a picture of us all from last night, even Izzy and Axe got in on it…

Now on to today’s card, it’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 201

Another nautical themed card! The base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I cut out a piece of Marina Mist with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it to the card with SNAIL. The waves are from the Simon Says Stamp Sailing Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics. I cut them out with my Paper Snips and adhered part of them to the card across the middle. The sailboat is from the Simon Says Stamp Sail Away Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics. I cut it out with the coordinating Simon Says Stamp Set Sail Dies. A piece of paper from the Authentique Seaside 6×6 Paper Pad is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Dies and adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The rest of the waves and sailboat are adhered with Foam Tape to the circle. My greeting is also from the same set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black right on the card base. I love the two sailboat themed stamp sets and the patterned paper goes so well with them! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge!

Paper Players 259

Wow! It’s Wednesday! The week is moving way too quickly, I know I never thought that I would say that either! The weather here was nice again although it did get a little humid in the evening. Work was productive which is always good. Little Daniel was at my parent’s again and he came over to my house with me for a little while. He found the Big Shot and needed to know how that worked. The look of amazement on his face was priceless! Maybe he will be crafty when he grows up! The rest of my evening was quiet, I Skyped with Andrea for a little bit and then played with a new fountain pen that I got from Jetpens.com. I have always been a fan of them and have quite a few but you can never have too many pens! LOL!

Today I have my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge…

Paper Players #259

I wanted another bright card before the Summer comes to an end so I reached for some fun paper! The base of the card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. All of the Pattered Paper is from the Simple Stories Summer Vibes 6×6 Paper Pad. The card front is completely covered in a piece. The banner is cut out using the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Dies and the circles using the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Dies. I adhered the circles to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. A piece of Lost Lagoon is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Smile Circle Die and adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. The greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Happy and Smile Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Lost Lagoon with the right side flagged and it’s adhered with Foam Tape. I do love all of the bright colors and fun designs in that paper pad and that Smile die is still a favorite! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge! Thanks, as always for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful Wednesday! ūüôā

SIP Challenge 11 – Tic-Tac-Toe

Only three more days of work to go! I can do this! LOL! You know when you have so much happening at one time you just want to slow everything down, that’s where I am right now. I’m looking forward to my trip but not looking forward to seeing my friend leave. The emotions of both are pulling in different directions! I would like to put this Summer on repeat for a while, do you know what I mean? But nothing in life is constant except for change, right? Anyway enough about that! Little Daniel was at my parent’s when I got home and we played with his trucks for a bit before dinner. After, I came home and made a few cards and then just pondered life for a bit. You need to do that every once in a while!

It’s Tuesday and that means that we are ready for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

SIP Any Tic Tac Toe 11

This Tic-Tac-Toe board is a collaboration of Michael and I. Eventually we will get him to participate in the actual challenge! I went across the middle, Twine, Die Cut and Sequins. I have been enjoying the neutrals with the nice pops of color lately so I went that route again! The card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp in Simon Says Stamp Smoke Ink on some Solar White 80lb and adhered it to the card with SNAIL and Fun Foam. My frame and bubble for the sentiment are from the Mama Elephant Polaroid Fun Creative Cuts. The frame is cut from more Solar White 80lb and adhered to the card with Foam Tape, I tied some Hemptique Black Hemp Twine around the frame before adhering it. For the flower I used my Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Simon Says Stamp Hot Mama and Lucky Ink to color another piece of Solar White 80lb. The die is from Elizabeth Crafts and is called Lotus Flower. It cuts the backing and the open flower, they are adhered sparingly together with 2-Way Glue and then to the card with Foam Tape. My¬†greeting is from the Stephanie Ackerman Tags & Words Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on Basic Black and also adhered to the card with Foam Tape. A few Pretty Pink Posh Lime Sorbet and Purple Michaels Sequins add some sparkle and complete the card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Now go on over to the SIP Challenge Blog and check out the rest of the Design Team’s cards!

Mojo Monday 412

So, another weekend done. It was Michael’s last weekend here, he goes home on Saturday. I have had the best time with him this summer! It is going to very hard to say goodbye but hopefully it won’t be for too long. There are a lot of people rooting for him to come back ASAP! It’s also my last week at work for a while. As of Friday I’m on vacation until September 21st! I have Sunday and Monday to pack and then I’m off to London with my friend Brian for two weeks. I will be blogging but not a card every day. I’ll be sharing pictures and tales of my travels. Hopefully you will come along with me on my trip!

The start of another week and it’s time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…

Mojo412

I wanted to do something a little different, play with color a little bit. The base for my card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the front is covered in a piece of Basic Black. For the background I used a piece of Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper. That large cool globe is the Tim Holtz Globe Die cut from Cucumber Crush and backed with a piece of Pacific Point that I cut out with the Sizzix Circles Framelits. It’s adhered to the card with SNAIL. The tag is cut from a piece of Crumb Cake using the Stephanie Ackerman Tags & Words Framelits and Stamps. I stamped the greeting from the “Vintage” Follow My Heart Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and tied a piece of Hemptique Natural Hemp Cord thorough the hole before adhering it to a strip of Vellum with Fun Foam and SNAIL. That is then adhered to the card with more SNAIL hidden behind the tag. A Red Glimmer Paper heart is punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and adhered to the corner of the tag with Foam Tape. I love the subtle neutrals with the pop of the Cucumber Crush and Pacific Point, it really makes the globe stand out! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Don’t forget to head on over to the blog and check out the rest of the Design Team’s inspiration and enter your card in the gallery! Thank you so much for coming by today!

Gold Mint Shining Star Birthday

Hi there! I aim to be a bit more productive today than I was yesterday! After my lazy morning Michael and I headed over to see Renee at Scrap-A-Latte. The weather was perfect yesterday for a nice ride in the convertible. When we finished there we headed to Friday’s for some dinner and then came back to the house and saw Taylor for a bit. We watched a little TV and then Michael went back to Sue’s and I made a card and puttered around a bit before calling it a night. Let’s see what today brings!

Oh, I almost forgot! Michael made a super clean card for the Freshly Made Sketches 200th sketch! You can check it out by visiting his blog HERE!

The card is a somewhat simple birthday card, I wanted to use a new die that Michael had gotten me! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb and the front is covered in a piece of Basic Black. I put a strip of Little B Washi Tape down the right side of a piece of Mint Macaroon and adhered that to the card. Another piece of Basic Black is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Large Tags Dies and some Hemptique Black Hemp Twine is tied though the top. I adhered the tag to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The star is that new die I mentioned from Spellbinders called Shining Star. I cut it out from Gold Foil Sheet and adhered it to the tag with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on a piece of Mint Macaroon and also adhered to the tag with Foam Tape. A scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins completes the card. I love the Mint Macaroon and Black together and that star is just so cool! I hope that you enjoyed today’s birthday card! Thank you for talking some time out of your day to come by and visit me! Have an excellent Sunday! ūüôā

Pals Paper Arts 264

A good afternoon to you! I had another lazy morning, I’m starting to like them too much! LOL! Just¬†hanging around talking and watching YouTube videos with Michael. Yesterday after work I came home and made my card for today. Michael got to me a little later than planned so we decided to go out and get salads from La Bottega and watch a movie. We watched The Holiday with Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and Jack Black, it’s one of my favorite movies and Michael had never seen it. He liked it too! Today we are going to go to street fair in Westbury and then who knows. I hope that your weekend is off to a good start!

The card that I made is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…

PPA 264

This was another one that I put together in my little brain while I was at work! That card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Bermuda Bay with a piece of Vellum over the top that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Feathers Embossing Folder. Three strips of The Paper Cuts Blueprint Curious Metallic Card Stock are adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I stamped the three feathers from the Mama Elephant Fair Feathers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Pool to Navy Ombre Ink and then cut them out with the matching Mama Elephant Fair Feathers Creative Cuts Die. The feathers are also adhered to the card with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Mama Elephant Heartfelt Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also stamped in The Pool to Navy Ink. I used the matching Mama Elephant Heartfelt Greetings Creative Cuts Dies to cut the greeting out and then cut out three more from white adhering them on top of one another for a little dimension. Finally, a few Pretty Pink Posh Seattle Mix Sequins are adhered to the feathers. I love the Heartfelt Wishes Set, it’s so nice to have all of the different languages to say thank you! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! Thanks so much for visiting today and enjoy what’s left of your Saturday! ūüôā
