Friends & Prayers....

Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone!
We are on the last day of the Month!
Geez, what happen to March? Seems like yesterday
was January 1st! Before we know it Summer will be here! YIKES!

I was watching a few videos over the Easter Weekend and
decided to play with some of my new crafty things - 
I tried to make it a CAS Card because I have a 
hard time doing those - I prefer layers :)

So here's what I created to share with you today -

I really like how this turned out except for the lavender Butterfly
In hindsight I would have left it white too! :) 
But that's how we learn - 
I certainly wasn't going to throw it away just because of that! :)

Because I liked the way this turned out so much that I made
another card using some other colors -

Now, I think this one turned out so lovely - I just love it! :)
It pays to Practice, Practice, Practice!!! (Wink Wink)

Cardstock - Stampin' Up, Georgia Pacific, Bo Bunny, 
Bazzill, Silhouette Adhesive

Hello Beautiful -

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Do you have AWESOME Plans for this
Wonderful Easter Weekend??? Hunter has a
4 day weekend, so we'll probably go do some day 
activities and of course carve in some time to color
Easter Eggs!! I don't care how old I am, it's just
something I enjoy doing! (Wink Wink)

I told you guys I had gotten some Crafting Goodies
in the mail this past week... and I'm so excited to
play with my new stuff! So, I thought I would
show ya a card I made using some of my new dies! :)

I gotta say - it is totally HARD to shop at Simon Says Stamp!!!
I just want EVERYTHING!!! Ugh!  I tried to be good and not over do it
but I finally got to use my Christmas Gift Certificate for SSS! I also
got to use my Christmas Gift Certificate for My Creative Time too!
YES!! I did have fun shopping!!! LOL

Any way, this simple card idea came to me awhile ago
 but I didn't have the dies I wanted - thus going shopping!!
So I held off completing it until my goodies arrived - :)

Here's the goodies I used on my card -

Card stock - Stampin' Up (Basic Black), MME Shimmer (Tropical Bay)
Designer Paper - Simple Stories (Summer Vibe)
Sequins - Simon Says Stamp (Sunshine Mix)
Sentiment - (Hello Beautiful Stamp) Simon Says Stamp Feb. 2016 Kit
Friend Word Die - Paper Smooches
Stitched XL & XL Label Dies - My Creative Time
Circle Loops Large & Small Die - Simon Says Stamp
Finished Frame Card Mat Die - Avery Elle

I hope each and every one of you have
Easter Weekend!!

Springtime -

Hello & Happy Tuesday Crafty Peeps!!!
Last week I made some Home Decor' Projects
for my Craft room, which I shared with you right HERE!!! 

And as I said yesterday, when I start crafting, I tend to spend
a bunch of time doing a bunch of stuff in one sitting -
So, I thought I would show you my Other Home Decor'
project I created to Celebrate SPRING!!!

I found the Wood Sign at Michael's for 40% off about a week ago
and knew I could make something with it!

I have an assortment of vinyl, some glossy, some matte - but
all the colors I wanted to use were glossy - try taking a picture
with glossy vinyl... YIKES! LOL Any who, I got the Word Art from the
Silhouette Store - I've had it for awhile and finally got to use it! YAY!
Then I felt it needed some more SPRING, so I added the Burlap colored
flowers with a hot glue gun - I got them from Michael's a long time ago
and I finally had a reason to use them too! 
I figure, eventually I'll get to use ALL my supplies 1 day! LOL

I've got this sign up in my living room with all my other
wooden home Decor' stuff I've made in the past!

You Are the Coolest!

Hello & Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
I got lazy over the weekend and didn't craft!
I was going to, because I got lots of new crafting
goodies in the mail - but just felt like - naaaaa
So I didn't! but that's okay, I think we all
have those moments! :)

Luckily I have a nice stash already built
up just for those occasions! LOL
When I am in the crafting mood, I tend to make
several projects in one sitting, so I always have
something available - :)

I just LOOOVE the (RAD) Collection from Simple Stories
So, I created this card with all the cool stuff it has!

Besides using the cool (RAD) Collection -
I used the Fiskar Note Pad Border Punch &
MME (Now & Then MILO) Enamel Dots, along with
the Die-namics Stitched Mat die. 
The Cardstock is Stampin' Up & Bazzill -

I just think this turned out so Flippin' COOL! 
But that's just me of course! :)
As you can tell, it is a Masculine card - now I
just need to decide who I should give this too?
 I can see this for a teenager or adult -

Signs, Signs!!

Hello & Happy Thursday Crafty Peeps!!
We are almost to the weekend, thank goodness!
Playing Bingo ALL week can be exhausting!
So FUN but a lot of work for someone! :)

Last weekend I was in the mood to make some
home decor projects - So I pulled out my Vinyl
and made these signs to decorate my Craft room!

The Red Shaped boards I found at Michael's for 40% off.
You know us crafters - when there's a SALE we have to 
Have it!!! LOL 

I found the Sentiment in the Silhouette Store awhile ago
and finally had the chance to cut it out - I thought it
was CUTE under my clock! :)

Then I was inspired to create a second one to add to my room -

Again, found this in the Silhouette Store awhile ago and
finally had the chance to use it - this sentiment did have some
other words, but I didn't use them - instead I found an Adhesive
backed White Pearl design in my stash, 
and realized I wanted it to be black -
So I pulled out my EBrush Machine & a Black Spectrum Noir
Marker, and colored the pearls to my liking, then
added them to the bottom of the sign! 

I really like how they both turned out & now I have
something else to look at in my craft room! HAHA!!

Have an AWESOME Weekend Everyone!!!
