A commissioned card for a friend

I know it's been a while since I have posted and I am seriously going to try and get better about sharing on my blog.

The card that I'm sharing today was made for a girl at work to give to a friend of hers.  Every once in a while, she asks for a card for this friend.  My only problem is that I am my own worst critic.  If I'm making for myself to give away, I'm usually ok but when someone buys from me...well thats when I get critical. lol

I do love this little cutie though and I'm happy overall with how the card came out.  She's a Digital Stamp from Sherri Baldy and she is just the cutest little thing and so fun to color.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Crafting!!!!!!

Cruise Layouts

Ahhhh....what I wouldn't give to be back on this cruise right now. We had such a fun time on this cruise. Six days of fun in the sun and all the better that we met up with friends on this Cruise. Below are some of the layouts that I've done so far. Still working on this album but considering I have not even started the Cruise for 2014 or 2015, I'm proud of how far I've come with this one. lol


Exhausting but fun day

Well, my mother in law had a pretty bad fall down some stairs and has 3 broken ribs, the good news is that she didn't break her neck or her hip. The good lord was watching over her but unfortunately, she is in a lot of pain so and barely able to move so, instead of going out, my friend Aileen came to my house and we spent the day scrapping, laughing and just hanging out. She's such a sweet person, even brought flowers for my mother in law which definitely helped cheer her up. So back to the scrapping, we literally (with the exception of checking on MIL) scrapped from 10 O'clock this morning until 9:30 tonight. What a great time. Of course she got more done than I did but still so much fun. We have so much in common and I've really grown to cherish our friendship. She's that person that no matter what you need or when you need it, she'll be there for you. The weather is getting a little warmer out and everything is starting to bloom in the back yard. The crabapple trees that I planted last year are now getting their leaves and by next month should be covered in beautiful pink blossoms, the blueberry bushes have now started to blossom as well. I can see my cherished blueberries starting to come alive once again and of course it's just about time to plant those Tomato plants. I love spring when everything just comes alive again. It makes you stop to appreciate the little things. I hope that you find that moment that makes you smile. We all have things that we'd like to change but remember that God is in Control. You make your own Happiness so chose to do that something that will bring that happiness to you and find a way to make someone else's day just a little bit brighter. Oh and just because I've got planting on the brain and believe me when I tell you that I do not have a green thumb, I thought I'd share the proof. These are from last year and can't wait to enjoy them again this year.

New Home, New Scrapbook room

Thanks for popping by. It's been a while since I've updated my blog and so much has happened since my last post. DH and I built a new home and we have since moved. I now have my dream scrapbook room which I got to redesign just the way that I wanted it. I don't have all the fancy cabinets and counters that I was originally going to go with (DH said it was fine but I couldn't justify the expense with all the storage that I already had). My daughter was an Avid Tinkerbell fan. She loved her and her personality was so similar. Sweet with a little bit of naughty (in a fun way). lol So, I've taken over that love as it reminds me of her and makes me smile. It's like she's with me in that room. I've named the room "The Pixie Parlor" and it makes me so happy to go in there and work or just sit in my chair when I need some "Me" time. I'm sorry for the overload of pictures but here's hoping that you can get a feel of what the room looks like. It's pink and green and DH told me when he saw it that it was the perfect "Little Girls Room". Yep, that's me. I may be 50 but it's my little girls room. lol So here's a peek inside of my room. I hope you like it and if you have any questions, please let me know. Happy scrapping.

Have a Sweet Day

Last one for today. This is another cutie and probably the first image that I purchased from Sherri Baldy My Besties. She's still my favorite as she is so adorable and so much fun to color. This was a card that was made for a friends birthday and I'm thinking about making a matching calendar for her as well. We'll see how the day goes. lol

Besties with a Snowflake Challenge

What a fun challenge to do. Who doesn't love creating with My Besties and of course Snowflakes. So pretty and delicate. I'd love for you to join us in this challenge. All you have to do is color one of Sherri Baldy's adorable images and pair her with the snowflakes. This was an image that I decided to go ahead and make as a Christmas gift for my girlfriend. She loves the images but is not very creative. So, I decided to make her something for her wall.

Sorry, it's been a while since I've updated.

Here are a few Christmas cards that were done over the holidays but could never really find the extra time to sit down and update the blog. So, I'm adding them now. These were all done using Sherri Baldy's Besties images. If you haven't gone over to her Etsy site, you really need to. The images are absolutely gorgeous and such fun to color. A lot of her stamps you can get in either the Digi or the Clear stamp and the best thing is that she is always doing a 50% off sale. I have hundreds of images now and love love love them.
