Card for Debbie

  Hi and thank for stopping by. Thought I would post a picture of the Card that I made for my Sisters birthday. She Is the big 60. Since her birthday Is In the fall and she loves flowers. I knew her card had to have a flower on It. 








Kind of not happy with the way it turned out, because I wasn't really able to blend the colors together on the flowers. My blender pen Is completely dry. So not the greatest but I still think she will like It.

The stamp set that I used is by Multi Crafts called Floral Fantasy. Cut the oval out on my Cricut. The For You Is from the Stampin Up  Stamp Set called Chalk Talk. Used a circle punch to punch It out.
Also used the Brick Embossing Folder. 
Cardstock  used- Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White
Inks Used- Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard and Old Olive.
Love the twine ribbon that I used. called Boho Modern. Gives the card a little rustic feel.

My Sister's Birthday Party Is later today. Hoping she likes It. I'm sure we will have a great time. We all are crazy when we get together. But first I have to go to Physical Therapy on my back. I really don't want to go. Oh well at least I have something fun to look forward to afterwards.
 Thanks for stopping by. Come back again. Hoping you have a good day and God Bless!

Sasquatch has been spotted!

 Hey Crafty Friends, Glad you could stop by. Yesterday was my little Sisters birthday. The big "50". 

When trying to think of a card to make her. I laughed at the thought of making a Sasquatch Card. Because I call her that sometimes because she Is a lot taller than me. Last year I put Sasquatch on her Christmas Tag and she knew who it was from. Ha!

Anyway here Is the Card that I made her. I just printed it of of the computer. So It was super easy. The Inside says; YOU CAN COME OUT OF HIDING IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY! 







Ha! Every time I looked at it I laughed. So Funny!


We had a surprise Birthday Party for her last night. The look on her face was priceless. She knew It was from me as soon as she seen It. She loved It and everyone got a big kick out of it. 

Well that's It for me today. Wanting to go to my Craft Room but need to clean up the kitchen first. Will just have to wait until later to play.

Happy Day to you and may God bless you and keep you safe.

Card for a Dear Friend

 Hi Crafter's, So glad you could stop by. The weather Is a lot cooler. Starting to feel like fall. (I LOVE IT!!!) The hot weather Is behind us and I couldn't be happier. 

A dear friend of mine just turned 80 and I wanted to share with you all the card that I made her. I found out a day before they were having a party, so I made this card in record time. I don't like to be in a rush when making a card but somehow come up with something. 











Used the Stampin Up Stamp Set called Wild about Flowers.  I am so glad that I bought this set. 

Cut out a stitch circle die and then sponged a little Bashful Blue Ink for the sky, Summer Sun for the sun and a little Old Olive for the grass. The flowers are in Positively Pink and Old Olive. Added the circle to a Doily from Stampin Up. 

The Cardstock Is Positively Pink and Whisper White. Embossed the white cardstock and added some ribbon.

Well that's It for me today. Going to go spend the night with my Mamma tonight. Happy Day to you all.

Sweet 16 Birthday Cards

 Hey glad you could stop by. I have a nasty cold right now. Runny nose and cough all the time. Had it now for over a week. I can't wait to get over It.

Are you going to be watching the Total Eclipse? We are looking forward to It. Glasses are sold out everywhere around here. We did pick up a couple of pair at Walmart. Wish I had gotten a few more.

Tomorrow we will be going to my two nieces (twins) Sweet 16 Birthday party.  I think there is going to be dancing. I won't be doing any of that with my bad knee.

Here are the cards that I made for them.







Used the Sweet Treats Cartridge, The number 16 is from a stamp set from My Creative Time. Embossed the Ice Cream and to make the texture on the cones, I used my Martha Stewart Score board. Love the look of the cones. 

Well that's it for me, I'm going to have to go take something for this cough. So annoying!!!

Take care and make sure you protect those eyes during the eclipse. Please stop back by sometime. I love It when you all visit me.

Crochet Dishcloth and Strawberry Angel Cake Recipe

 Hi, Glad you could stop by. Today Is Wednesday. The grand kids are here. School starts back tomorrow. So today Is the last day of summer break. It goes by so fast. Wish they didn't have to go back so soon.

Thought I would share with you a Crocheted Dish Cloth that I made for my niece for her bridal shower. This was several months ago. But thought I would go ahead and show you all.






Since It was several months ago, I can't remember what stitches that I used. It's all cotton. 
Since It was part of her gift, I rolled and tied It with some twine and added a tag.  She really liked It. I need to ask her If she has used It It yet.






Thought tied up this way was a little nicer.  My niece has been having some health problems. Makes It bad that she's so far from all her family. Please say a prayer for her.


Also thought I would share a recipe with you all. It's a Strawberry Dump Cake. I call It Strawberry Angel Cake and yes It does taste a little like heaven.





http://easyrecipesly.com/the-easiest-strawberry-cake/

I make this a little differently than the recipe. I use fresh strawberries. Mix them in some sugar and let them sit for awhile so they get juicy. I also let the jello cool down a little before adding the strawberries to It. 


I have made this several times and made one just last night. We all Love It and will enjoy some more later for this last day of Summer break. 

 
Hope you try this recipe. Really easy and really good. Thanks for stopping by.

Background Stamping with Yarn

 Have been enjoying the cooler temperatures that we have been having lately, Love going outside when it's nice. But sadly It's getting hot again. So I will be spending more time indoors. Hopefully get some crafting done. Oh and maybe a little Housework to.

I'm glad you could stop by. Two of my favorite Hobbies are Paper Crafting and Crochet. Well I figured out a way to combine the two.






 For the background I took my biggest clear block and wrapped it in yarn and inked it up and stamped on the white cardstock.

Thought it gave it a different fun effect. Wasn't for sure how it would look used on a card. But I think the end result Is cute. 

Well the grand kids will be here in a few minutes so I had better end this post. Hope you enjoyed seeing my card and maybe you can think of some fun ways to make you some background paper to. 

Enjoy your day, hope you can stop by again soon.
