A Sword for Walker

 Hello Crafter's, Thank you for stopping by. Not sure If you seen my last post but I had shared a card that I made my brother. My brother passed away recently.

Not long before he passed away he had promised to give my Grandson a big sword that he had. He said that It was somewhere In the back of his closet.

After he passed away I took the sword and wrapped it up for my Grandson and gave It to him for his birthday. 

He Loved It and knew as soon as he seen it that It was from his Uncle Steve. When making his card I wanted to make him something special to always remind him of his 11th birthday.

So of course I had to make him a sword card. Even though It's a very simple card he really liked It. So I would like to share It with you.

 It was a very special time for my Grandson Walker and for myself, and I could feel my brother smiling. Thanks for taking the time to stop by. 

 Thought I would enter this into a few challenges-

Last Card for my Brother

My Crafty friends, I new this post would be hard for me. But I wanted to share my brothers birthday card that I made him. It is my last birthday card that I will get to make him. 

My brother passed away a few weeks ago and I am just heart broken. It has honestly been the hardest thing that I have ever been through. 

What made It worse was me being the one to find him and tried to revive him. It has been so hard on me. 

But I did want to share his card. He Loved the ship. So glad that he got to enjoy his birthday. We had a fun time that day.

Here Is his Card...

  Thank you for stopping by and please pray for my family,especially my Mom. So hard on her. Remember to talk and have fun with your loved ones. Life Is so precious and we never know what tomorrow brings.

Camoflauge Owl Card

 Yeah, I'm finally getting a chance to post again. Just seems that I've been to busy, to tired or to sick to get one In. So I'm taking some time to get this posted.

I think my last post was in June. Yikes! 

This summer has been so hot, I have been miserable. Seems like that's what everyone around here Is talking about. I can not wait for Fall. 
I do want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with the people of Louisiana. There are so many effected by the flooding. 

This past Saturday we had a College Graduation/ Going away party for my niece Amber and wanted to share the card that I made for her.

Amber Is joining the Air Force.So I wanted my Card to be part Graduation and part about the Military and I know that she loves owls like me.

I used the Stampin Up Owl Punch to make this little Owl Soldier in her Camouflage. 
Other things I used to make this card

Flag- Independence Day Cricut Cartridge
Graduation Hat- Locker Talk Cricut Cartridge
Congrats-Create a Critter 2 Cricut Cartidge
2016- A Childs Year Cricut Cartridge
Stars Embossing Folder
Scallop PunchSquare Punch to make Banners
Dragon Fly Punch- to make sides of glasses.

Amber Loved the Card, We are so proud of her. I won't lie when I say I'm a little worried about her. Takes a lot to join the Military. She will be learning to fly fighter jets. 

But she's a smart girl and I know God will be by her side In everything that she does. (Would Love for you all to say a prayer for her).

Thought I might add this picture from her party, showing the Congrats Amber letters and few stars that I cut out. Her party turned out so nice.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Happy Day to you all!!!

Wild about Flowers!

Hey Crafter's, glad you could stop by. It's hot outside and I seriously don't like hot weather. Not even a little bit. (Well maybe a little when I'm In the pool). O.k and I do enjoy cold Ice cream when It's hot.

So what Is a crafter to do when It's hot out and you have the day off from work??? Ahh, play In your craft room of course. 

Well actually I am cleaning my craft room. (What a mess)! Seriously a lot of the problem would be solved If I had a larger craft room. 

I am so bad about making a card and then just shuffling everything to the side and start making something else. I have got to start cleaning up before I start another project. 

I would like to share with you all the card that I made for one of my Sisters.

My Sister's favorite color is Purple, so Is mine. So I decided to do her card in the new Stampin Up Ink color Blackberry Bliss. It's pretty dark, so for the flowers I stamped on a separate piece of cardstock and then Stamped the Image to get a lighter color. For the stems I used Old Olive. I also used one of my newest stamp sets called Wild About Flowers from Stampin Up. I had wanted this set for awhile. So glad to get It. 

Other supplies used-
Close to My Heart Stamp Set called- Family Is Forever
Tim Holtz Brick Wall Embossing Folder
Scallop Border Punch

That's It for today. Hope you enjoyed seeing the card I made. Hope you all are staying cool. Hope you all have a great week!!!

Graduation Decorations!

This past Saturday my niece McKinley  graduated High School. Makes me a little sad to know she Is all grown up. Seems like only yesterday she would run in my arms and tell me that I was her
favorite Aunt. 

She Is  a special girl, so good and kind to everyone she meets. A great roll model to all girls. She Is the Drum Major of our hometown Band. Most everyone thinks she has been the best one we have ever had.  I agree!

If you seen my last post, I was In a Graduation Blog Hop and I had make a card for her.
Now I would like to share a few things I did for her party. 

First thing that I made, was a Graduate Hat Box for people to place her cards in.  

 You can not tell but the letters were cut in yellow glitter cardstock and was cut from the Cricut Classic Font cartridge.

Painted several coats of purple acrylic paint on the hat box and foam board. Hot glued together and cut out slot. I think It came out pretty good and got lots of compliments on it at the party.

I also cut out some 2016 in purple glitter paper and some hats in black glitter paper to put in the center pieces for the tables. Cut out from the Child's Year Cartridge.

I think It added a lot to the centerpieces. Unfortunately In the picture It looks more blue than purple. 

 Congratulations McKinley!!! So proud of you!

Also today Is Memorial Day, the day Americans honor our fallen Soldiers.

  So If you see a Veteran or a soldier in active duty, please remember to Thank them for their service. 


 Hope you have a nice long weekend and thanks again for stopping by.

I did want to share with you all the Card I made my Mom. My Mom Is my biggest fan of the cards I make. So I always try to make her something special and something I know she will love.

So I made a Shadow Box Card for her.

This was my first time making a Shadow Box Style Card. I was amazed at how easy that It was to make. I did emboss It with a Wood grain Embossing Folder. I used one of my newer Stamp Sets (In the Meadow). Love this Stamp Set and I know my Mom Is going love the deer and her baby fawn. Perfect for Mother's Day.

Inks used-
Stampin Up Blendabilities for the Deer
