Happy Saturday!

Hello! I wanted to pop in and say hello! I have had quite a busy week. My friend Kim had her little baby boy. His name is Elijah (Eli for short). He is the most precious, adorable, little thing I have ever seen. I am sure she will be posting pics of him on her blog soon ( Also, I am trying to get some quilting done. I did get a chance to check out Jen Del Muro's sketch today and it rocks! Make sure you check it out. Well it is raining here in Texas but that makes a nice hot cup of coffee and a sweatshirt the perfect way to start the day. I am sharing an MFT card I made a little while ago today. I had a little bit of trouble getting it to work but I love the colors! I also got the flowers stuck to my hand b/c I couldn't wait for the crystal effects to dry so I had to re-do the flowers. Oh well...I guess I will never learn to wait for something to dry completely before touching it. This week I got some new stamps in from Stampavie that I cannot wait to ink up! My birthday is Wednesday so I am hoping my husband will have my new scrap room done. I will show you some pics then. Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

It's Tuesday already...

Labor day weekend and a friend visiting from out of town kept me out of my crafting room but I still had tons of fun. Below I have a picture of the twice painted craft room to be. I started with a greenish color that looked like toothpaste and then got to this color which I love. It looks a light blue during the day and a light aqua at night. Can't wait! My husband is going to start assembly of the furniture tomorrow....YEAH! The card I am sharing is using one of my favorite sets ever (from MFT)-Rainy Days. I love this set and knew I had to have it the minute I saw it! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!! Talk to you soon!

Beautiful card---thanks Carole Burrage!

Hello! Sorry I haven't been blogging lately. Nothing like a little sinus infection to take you out of the game. Anyway, I haven't had much time to create this week so I am going to show you a card I made last week! This card was part of the August Verve challenge which asked you to pick a card from one of their design team members and case it. The twist was that if they used patterned paper you had to use solid and vice versa. I have had this card of Carole's favorited forever and just decided to do it! Her hands must have been wore out from the cutting but her card is just gorgeous! Art worthy! You must check out her blog if you haven't already she is hillarious!

On another note, I hope you got a chance to check out MFT's new release! Awesome!!! They always come up with the best sentiments (they make me smile and laugh).

I know I have been mentioning the construction on my new scrapbook room...I can hardly wait till its done. I thought I would show you some of the pre-paint pictures and then the pictures with tinted primer. The ceiling is done now we just need the final paint coat, the furniture, the decorations, and to move and re-organize everything....Fun Fun Fun!
