Fab Friday 122

Fab Friday 122

Another week is coming to an end. I had a busy morning yesterday, I ran over to Jim’s to pick something up and then stopped back home before I headed over to Sue’s. We had a nice productive day, got a lot done. Last night after dinner Taylor and I ran a few errands, always nice to see the child! Today I have some more purging to do! I do love a good purge! πŸ˜€

I can’t believe that it’s time for a new Fab Friday challenge…

I got to use another new to me stamp! On my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped the branches in Cup O Joe and the flowers in Red Raspberry, both from the Hero Arts Color Layering Birds & Blossoms Photopolymer Stamp Set. The greeting is stamped in Raspberry Jam in the upper left. The birds are stamped in Just Rust and Emerald Green for the first layer and then Cup O Joe for the second. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Raspberry Sequins finish the card! I love that stamp set, so simple and fun! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you so much for spending some of your Friday with me! Enjoy the rest of your day! πŸ™‚

Another Wednesday under our belts! I had a semi-productive day. Got a few things done in the morning and then did some laundry. It was another warm day, we had a little rain in the evening for a few minutes but all in all a good day! I stopped by my friend’s house and dropped off their newly formatted MacBook and helped them finish setting it up. The rest of the evening was spent relaxing and watching a little TV. I did watch the new episode of This is Us yesterday morning, man is that a good show! Today I’m off to spend some time with Sue! πŸ˜€

I got me a new Hero Set yesterday and decided to use it to make my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I began by stamping the images from the Hero Arts Color Layering Poppy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pale Tomato, Raspberry Jam, Red Royal and Black. The closed ones are stamped in Forever Green. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out and then stamped the stems in Forever Green onto piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My card base is the same and has a piece of paper from the DCWV Maps, Text & Ledgers Paper Pad adhered as the background. Some Fun Foam and E-Z Runner holds the panel with the flowers to the card. My greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Black, I flagged the ends and adhered it to the card with 3M Foam Tape. I love the poppies and the unexpected vintage paper for the background! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Sketch Challenge! Thank you for visiting! Have an awesome Thursday! πŸ™‚

Hello! My apologies for my lateness this morning, I had some computer issues last night and it was a little too late to deal with them! When computers work they are amazing but buy when they don’t, not fun! I had a pretty productive day yesterday, ran some errands, did a little cleaning and some laundry. My friend Scott stopped by to take a look at installing my Ecobee Thermostat that I have had for over a year. Now that finally will get done! Last night after dinner I went over to Heather’s and hung out with her and Stephanie. This morning I have a little project that I’m working on for Jim so I’ll see if I can get that finished and then maybe some more work on the cabinets! πŸ˜€

I did get my card made for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge last night, this week we have some colors to work with…

I’m still appreciating the simpler cards lately and this one is definitely simple! I used my Mini MISTI to stamp the tree and a few of the layers of leaves from the Hero Arts Color Layering Fall Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cup O Joe, Just Rust, Lemon Yellow and Emerald Green onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The greeting is stamped in Just Rust under the tree. For a little more interest I added Pretty Pink Posh Copper, Lemon Yellow and Peacock Feather Sequins and a few Matte Copper ones too. I really do love the simplicity of this card, the colors reminded me of the trees in PA, turning but with a lot of green left! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge! You can stop by the BLOG for more inspiration and then share your card with us in the gallery! Thank you so much for coming by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday! πŸ™‚

SIP Challenge 118 – Anything But a Card!

SIP Challenge 118 – Anything But a Card!

Hello!! I missed you guys! Pennsylvania was awesome! We had such a nice time at the lake and the weather was absolutely perfect! It was in the 80’s all weekend with lots of sun! I was very sad to leave yesterday to come home, so peaceful and serene there! Here is what my view was like for most of the time there…

Isn’t it just perfect?! Now it’s back to reality! I have a lot to catch up on today and hopefully it will all happen! I hope that you all enjoyed your weekends too!

It’s Tuesday and I have my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge to share with you…

Anything but an A2 card! I of course love a tag so that’s what I made! The tag is cut from a piece of Solar White 80lb using the tag die from the Hero Arts June 2016 My Monthly Hero Kit. My sunflower and greeting are from the Hero Arts September My Monthly Hero Kit. I stamped the sunflower in Butter Bar, Pumpkin Pie, Just Rust and Cup O Joe using my Mini MISTI. The leaves are stamped in Green Hills and Forever Green and they are both cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I adhered the leaves to the tag with Dot Runner Adhesive and the sunflower with 3M Foam Tape.The greeting is stamped in Cup O Joe and I tied a piece of Hemptique Natural Hemp Cord through the top to finish it off. I love that tag die because it folds over so that you can write a nice little message inside! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team project for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! We hope to see your project in the gallery so head on over to the BLOG for some more inspiration! Thanks for coming back to check in with me after my little vacation! I wish you all a terrific Tuesday! πŸ™‚

Autumn Pumpkins on Kraft

Autumn Pumpkins on Kraft

A good Thursday morning to you! I had a productive day yesterday, got some computer stuff done in the morning and ran a few errands in the afternoon. Jim came by around 5:00 and we went for a four mile walk on the Bethpage Bike Trail. I always feel so good after a walk and so does he! We are going to try and make sure that we take one more often. A little Zorn’s for dinner and some TV before calling it a day. I think that I will try and work on the kitchen cabinets today, let’s see how that goes! πŸ˜€

I didn’t have a chance to make a card last night so I made one this morning. I used supplies from the Hero Arts September My Monthly Hero Kit, love that kit! The pumpkins are stamped in Tangerine, Orange Soda, Pumpkin Pie and Cop O Joe, the leaves in Green Hills and Moss, all using my Mini MISTI. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies and put aside. Onto a piece of Desert Storm 80lb I added a little Moss Ink to the bottom with a Mini Ink Blending Tool and adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The images are adhered with E-Z Runner and 3M Foam Tape and the greeting is stamped in Moss. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Moss, Pumpkin and Espresso Sequins and the card is done! I’m not a fan of the Fall weather but I do love the images and colors associated with the season! I hope that you like today’s card! Thanks for visiting! Have a terrific Thursday! πŸ™‚

What started out as a what am I going to do day yesterday got quite busy! I ended up driving into Manhattan with Heather yesterday to drop off a computer that I had worked on for my friend Isabella. We made it in in about an hour and a half even though it’s UN Week. It did take us 45 minutes to go the last two miles! We had a nice visit with Isabella, no where near long enough and we made it back home in about and hour. Before I dropped Heather off we had some Subway for lunch and then I came back home. The rest of the day was spent dealing with phone upgrades with AT&T which I can assure you is never fun! I’ll be getting some cleaning done today, good stuff! πŸ˜€

It’s Paper Craft Crew time and this week we have a sketch for you…

Another simple one! I started by stamping the leaf from the Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Rust onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I heat embossed one of the greetings from the set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of 65lb Vellum and flagged the left side. To hold it to the card I adhered a strip of Desert Storm down the right side and tucked the vellum under it. A little strip of Gold Glitter Card is adhered near the top right of the greeting and some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins to finish the card! I think that leaf is definitely my all time favorite and the greeting is a really nice one too! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has come up with and enter your card in the gallery! Thanks for stopping by! Have a Wonderful Wednesday! πŸ™‚

Another speedy weekend but it was a beautiful Summer like one here. It’s good that we had the nice weather because we are supposed to get a lot of rain this week which will put a damper on my kitchen plans, bummer. I had a nice relaxing day yesterday. I cleaned a little and did some laundry. There was a lot of TV time too. I’ll have to find some inside projects for today! πŸ˜€

I had sat down last night to make my card before I checked to see what this week’s Paper Players challenge was and as luck would have it, it works…

I’m loving the Hero Arts Autumn Icon Fancy Dies that were an add-ons to this month’s My Monthly Hero Kit. I used them to cut out someΒ So Saffron, Pear Pizzaz, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip. For the acorn I used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere it to a piece of Crumb Cake and then cut around it with my scissors. To adhere them to the card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I used Ultra Thin Glue Dots. All that was left to do was stamp my greeting from the Hero Arts Ribbon Greetings Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cup O Joe. I used basically the same goodies to make yesterday’s card. Love how you can get such a completely different look with the same products! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for starting your week off here on the blog with me! Have the best Monday that you can! πŸ™‚

Happy Birthday Pumpkin

Happy Birthday Pumpkin

Happy Sunday peeps! I’m a little late this morning because I was out a little later than planned last night and actually got up this morning and made my card! I went over to Jim’s yesterday and we worked on getting his garage organized. We had a little lunch and then went over to the new Costco by him. He got a new TV for his bedroom so we installed that and then ran over to IKEA and Target. A lot was accomplished and that is always a good thing! πŸ˜€

That card that I made this morning uses some of the add-ons from the September My Monthly Hero Kit. I started by die cutting the pumpkin from Gold Glitter Card and the leaf from Green Glitter Paper using the Hero Arts Autumn Icons Fancy Dies. I laid the pumpkin onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to get and idea as to where I wanted to do my ink blending. I used Just Rust behind the pumpkin and Pool around it. The pumpkin and leaf are then adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. For the greeting I ink blended some more Just Rust onto card stock and dried it with my Heat Tool. I then stamped the Happy Birthday from the Hero Arts Ribbon Messages Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. It’s cut out with one of the banner dies and adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Green and Pumpkin Sequins finish the card! It would be a fun to give for a fall birthday don’t you think?! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! I thank you for stopping by! Have a super Sunday! πŸ™‚

It was another beautiful day here yesterday! I went over to Jim’s and waited for the guy to come and measure for the door. I caught up on my Blog comments and played with the dogs while I waited. After the guy was done I came back home and Heather and I ran to BJ’s to pick up a few things. Last night Heather and I went over and spent some time with Stephanie. Today, not sure what’s going on but hopefully it will be fun! πŸ˜€

I have a super quick and simple card using the September My Monthly Hero Kit and my Mini MISTI! I stamped the sunflower in Butter Bar, Pumpkin Pie and Orange Soda for the flower and Green Hills and Forever Green for the leaves. The flower center is stamped in Cup O Joe for both layers. My little bee is stamped in Butter Bar and Cup O Joe and the greeting in Forever Green. Done! Like I said, simple and a great card to make multiples of with the MISTI! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Thanks for visiting with me and I wish you all a superb Saturday! πŸ™‚

SIP Challenge 116 – CAS Fall!

SIP Challenge 116 – CAS Fall!

I started my day off yesterday with a lengthy trip to the DMV to renew my License. I guess it wasn’t too bad, an hour and a half, it definitely could have been longer. I have had the pleasure of sitting there for over three hours on other occasions! I did manage to make the girl that waited on me laugh so it was time well spent! LOL! After that I came home and cleaned a little and then set out working on a friends computer. The hard drive failed and needed to be replaced. It took it apart and then tried to find the drive that I needed. They had one at Micro Center so Taylor and I took a ride over there and they she wanted to go to Dick’s Sporting Goods. I put the new drive in and put the computer back together and then ran over to see Heather for a little bit. We watched Pretty Woman, I still love that movie! This morning I don’t know what I will do, it’s my Birthday so maybe nothing! πŸ˜€

It’s also Tuesday and time for a new Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

I do love Clean and Simple and I went really CAS on this one! Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped the leaf from the Hero Arts Color Layering Grateful Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Autumn Ombre Ink with my Mini MISTI so that I could double stamp it. The greeting is from the same set and is stamped in the darker red from the same pad. I added the dots with my Stylus and the Ombre Pad too. I’m a little obsessed with those dots lately, you can blame Jennifer McGuire for that! LOL! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper CAS Fall Challenge! The rest of the Team has some great cards for you to use to inspire you over on the BLOG! We hope to see your card in gallery! Thank you for visiting with me today! Have Happy Tuesday! πŸ™‚
