Taylor's Challenge #84

This is a really simple care using SUPER FUN American Crafts paper... love it!! And also using Taylor's Sketch Challenge 84. I made a few cards last night so I can have some to post during the week.

Work has been so busy plus I am supervising an MSW student for the year... very fun but for now extra work!! The commute to and from work has also been even worse than usual and I am trying to pack before I move in Nov.... takes away my motivation to stamp after dinner and some form of exercise!! However, we all know what Saturday is... World CardMaking Day!! Will definitely make crafty time a priority on that day!!

A Halloween Hi

After making a winter card I thought I should get a move on Halloween cards!! This is also a stamp from SU "The More the Merrier". I used SU cardstock in Always Artichoke and Elegant Eggplant. I also used a scrap of DP that I had picked up at ACMoore... not sure where it's from. A couple of these guys are popped up and w/ the button it's not mail friendly! It's hard to see but I also used the Dots Cuttlebug folder on the Elegant Eggplant.

Jinxing Myself

As much I love this card, I'm nervous to post it... the fall weather here has been so beautiful... but it doesn't last long! Pretty soon we'll be seeing alot of these guys!! I've been dying to use this stamp from Stampin' Up. I paired it w/ some Minds Eye paper and this week'd SCS sketch. This picture came out the best though the angle is a little too crooked!!

The Sunday Blues

Ugh, it's almost 7pm and the Sunday blues start to set in! So, chasing them away by stamping before the gym! This is a thank you card but I made it w/o a particular purpose. I have had this paper from K&Co (I think) forever! I bought a pack when I first started stamping... the stamp is Studio G from Michael's dollar bin.

I have loved my 3 day weekend... could really get used to it:) Off to the gym!

Happy Birthday, Liam!

My youngest nephew, Liam, is turning 1 next week and I whipped up this sweet card! I used Hero Arts stamps and AC thickers.

It's a rainy day here, perfect for stamping though I can't find much motivation! I'm loving my 3 day weekend!!

Feels Like Monday...

So excited for a 4 day work week... and the reminder that today is NOT Monday!! To prove it, here is Mercy's Tuesday Setch for the week.

I love these little guys from Hero Arts. The inside says "Here's a Hug". I used the In Colors from 2007 (I think) and sadly realized that I am running out of these colors!! The picture isn't that great.. taken at night, which also, sadly, is coming earlier and earlier these days!!!

Kick Off Your Shoes!

I made this card a while ago... I may have followed a sketch challenge or CASE'd someone's work, I really don't remember!! I should start making note of that when I make a card.

I made this using another quote from Verve's Beautiful You set. It says "Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes and dance" by Oprah.

I did just that this past weekend when I went out to San Francisco. I saw my friend, Jill, from growing up and also had a reunion w/ my fellowFJV housemates. It was so fun!! Aaaahhhh, love northern CA!!! I flew home through Phoenix and was in the airport for a couple hours... I was SO tempted to change my flight and stay over night in Phx! But I would have to have bought a whole new plane ticket:( I did get a chance though to step outside of the airport into that 115 degree heat... not sure if I miss that but I do miss the mountains, the desert, the cactus, the sunsets, the palm trees.... I love the west, it calls to me;)
