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.

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.

Fishing Father's Day Card

 Today Is Saturday, Hope your having a nice weekend. I started the day with going out side and weed eating and racking up piles of brush. I have to say I didn't enjoy that not one little bit. My Grandkids helped me so that was good

So I decided to make some egg salad for lunch. The grandkids love It. So while that was cooking I went to my craft room to work on a card while the eggs cooked.

Can you tell where this story is going? Well lets just say no one got any egg salad. Never go to play in your craft room with anything cooking.

Anyway I have a another Father's Day Cards to share with you.






This card could also be used for a birthday to. Used the Stamp Set called Angler from Stampin Up.

Here Is a list of supplies used-

Stamps- Angler, Background Stamp (Weathered) and Short Order Alphabet
Cardstock- Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Black and Whisper White
Inks- Brocade Blue, Old Olive,Close to Cocoa and Summer Sun

Love when a card comes together quickly and guy cards are usually harder for me. 

That's all I have to share with you today. If you need more Ideas for men cards I will be posting another In a few days. 

Have a nice weekend!

Golf Card for Poppa

 Today Is Thursday,Busy making supper, but thought I would make a quick post.

I was asked If I could make a fathers day card with golfing on It and they wanted Poppa on It. So I decided on making basically the same card that I made my son for his last birthday.But It's a little different.

So thought I would do a quick post to share It. 








Wasn't for sure If that was the correct way to spell Poppa, but that's how she wanted It. I had the Happy and Day stamp but had to get letters from other stamps to make Poppa. That was a little tricky but I finally got It straight.  Hope she likes It.





Here are supplies-

Stamps- S.U. Background Stamp Print Pattern
Holiday Occasions Stamp Set from Joys Life
Cardstock- Whisper White,Red and Black
S.U. Oval Punch
Hole Punches
Corner Tag Punch
Flag- free hand 

That's my quick post. Thanks for stopping by
Will be posting some more Fathers Day Cards soon. Hope you can come back. Happy Day to You!
