4th of July Wreath

Hello and Happy Friday everyone! I said I would post
today after I took some pictures..... and here I am! ;o)
I'm happy it's the weekend.... I always have too much
to do and not enough time to do it in! :o) 
The weekends seem to fly by... has anyone else
noticed this? Well... With Summer in Full swing
and the 4th of July just around the corner.... I thought
I would create another wreath to add to my Holiday
Collection of wreaths.... So here ya go! :O)
I seem to be addicted to Burlap for my wreaths...
Why? I don't know...but I like how they turn out! :O)
I used - White Chevron & Burlap Ribbon
Red & Blue Chevron & Burlap Ribbon
Red & Blue Stars & Burlap Ribbon
Pins & a White Styrofoam Wreath
Red Tulle Ribbon
Here's a Close up of the Red, White, & Blue Colors
Along with the designs in them.. I think it's hard to
see the stars on this one... but they are there!
I'm entering this in the following Challenges:
PDE Linky Party - Many Layers (Which this wreath has)
Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party - Red, White, & Blue
Decorate to Celebrate - 4th of July
My Sheri Crafts - A Star is Born (I have Stars throughout my wreath)
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope your Father's Day weekend
was wonderful! Mine was nice &
quiet.... very low key...
just the way I like things! :o)
This week will be another very busy week since
I will be going to my Family Reunion this
weekend! I believe I told you about
it before... I had been planning a
family get together for my Mom
who turned 70 last month. This Friday
is when it'll start, so I have lots to do
this week at work and planning for
the food for our event. Busy, Busy, Busy!
In the mean time, I thought I would
share another card with ya! I finally finished
my MIL's cards and got them mailed off to her.
So this is one of them...
The Design is from the SIL Store..
CS is Stampin' Up
Digital Paper is Fancy Pants (Wonderful Day)
I added extra flowers to pop up
I inked the flowers and added some
Gems to the centers... added a button with
some twine.... Banner cut from MCS Banner
die set... and the Stamp is from Above Ruby Studios
Well, that's all I have time for....
Thanks so much for stopping by....

My Hero......

Hello and Happy Friday Everyone! I know... I know...
I've been gone yet again! All I can tell ya is SUMMER!!!
Hahahaha.... Just a busy time... & Life! LOL
I wanted to "POP" in and say HELLO!!! And just
take a few minutes for myself and share another card
with ya! :o) I hope you don't mind...
This card is rather simple.... I just wanted to make a
military card as a "SHOUT OUT" to ALL the
Daddy's, Pop's, Grandpa's, Uncles, Brothers, who
are ALL Dad's & in the Military...
This is not something I would
normally make.... so I thought? Why Not?
The Military paper is Digital.... I found it on Etsy
thru a couple of places.... can't remember off the
top of my head... (sorry bout' that) :o)
Everything was designed and cut with my
Cameo of course.... :o) and I did some inking
to give it a dirty/rustic sort of kind of look! :o)
I added the "My Hero" to the die cut then
used the print & Cut Feature...
Any who.... it's what I made... so there ya go! LOL
Thanks for stopping by... I hope you
 ALL have a wonderful FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND!!!

World's Best Dad!

Hello and Happy Friday Everyone! Sorry I've been MIA!
I was really sick for over a week and couldn't work....
So, when I was feeling better... I went to work and OMGOSH!
There was soooo much stuff I had to sort through because it
all came in while I was ill....
I've been busy working as fast
as I can to get the donations out... It was so bad that I had to close
my donation box... Some people hate it when I do that....
But they don't realize I'm the one doing most of the sorting...
and if they just keep adding to the mess.... it only makes it worse...
I was lucky too have my mom help me on Monday,
then 2 friends came on Tuesday, then my 2 boys on Wednesday....
Thursday was just me.... and Friday will be the same....
So I have my work cut out for me again! :o)
But I thought I would share a card that I made
before I got sick... I made several.... then... BAM!
That was the end of my craft time! LOL
The card design is from the Silhouette Store.....
Card stock - SU, Bo Bunny
Ink - SU
I used the Print & Cut Feature for the
word "DAD" on the yellow paper....
Screw looking Brad - Oriental Trading
I'm entering this into the Following Challenge:
Exploring Cricut & More - Father's Day
Thanks for all the well wishes....
You guys are the Best! Have an
