Fathers Day

I know I am a couple days late sharing my cards that I made for Fathers Day, but better later then never!!! As always I am always too busy and just do some things last minute and these cards were no exception...I made them the day of Fathers Day! The first card I took inspiration from a fellow blogger. I did a search on cards and this is what I copied. From Christi, I just randomly found her blog and really like what she did so I went about creating my own version. Thanks Christi for the inspiration! On the blue card when you open the card the sentiment on the inside says "you rock!" My hubby's dad plays guitar so I thought this was a perfect card just for him! I loved using some of my scraps and older stash to make this card! Super fun and easy!
I am off to work this morning, got an early meeting and a long day ahead! Of course I am 24 hours away from my vacation beginning and I am so thrilled, I so need a week off!

Girls Night Out

This is the theme for my monthly card swap group for next month...Girls Night Out! So many possibilities! I am so excited about this theme and had tons of ideas floating around in my head. Here are the 5 designs I came up with, but decided I was only going to do 2 cards, usually it is just one, but I just couldn't make up my mind so I went with 2. See if you can pick out which 2 I am reproducing for my ladies in my card swap group.

The card above is showing the bra and panties is actually only one card, the bra is the front and the panties are on the if you guessed that one then you picked right! Also I am doing the corset one. They are just so girly and fun! I couldn't resist making these cards. They would be make a great invitation for a girls night out!

Can you believe 2 days in a row I am posting on my blog! Shocking I know, but it must be done! I need to get back into and I made a promised that I was going to be a better blogger this year, some weeks I am and other weeks I fall of the face of the earth. But hey, I am trying!!! Wish me luck for tomorrow, hoping my work schedule doesn't get in the way of me posting!

Think Beach....

So I am finally posting a new something! I have not had the time lately to devote to posting every day, but I really want to, things just get in the way. I am finally posting about my card I made for my group of card swap was my turn to host it at my house so I was super excited! I picked summer or beach as my theme. I have had my eye on this stamp for about 6 months and couldn't wait to make the cards! I think they are some of my very favorites I have ever made...

Since I was the hostess for June I planned dinner and drinks, I made a yummy Mexican Chicken Casserole and to drink we had blueberry pomegranite martini's. They are so delicious! After dinner I had planned a make n take. A flip flop album, usuing actual flip flop shoes! It turned out so cute. I made each person a kit to put together and many of them choose to take theirs home to work on...hope to see the finished projects soon! Here is mine to share, now all I have to do is add some photos!

I have so much more to share, but will save it for future posts. I have already started working on cards for my group for next month's get together! I was so excited about the theme I wanted to start early!!!
I am enjoying several days at home this week, spending the time crafting when I really need to get things done for cheerleading...but I am just not really interested in that! Maybe tomorrow I will get to that work!
In other news, my hubby is on the job hunt...his company has been hit by the economy and they are closing their sad! He has been there for 11 years! He has several interviews lined up and many look promising, only problem is 2 of them are in Columbus...I really don't want to move, but know that we have to go where the job is! Keep us in your daily prayers that he find something wonderful!
Gotta run, life is happening and I am letting it pass me by!!!

I have a senior!!!

Just wanted to share a few of my daughter's senior photos from her session with a local photographer. They are beautiful and I chose to order the cd of the entire session so that I have the freedom to do what I want with the photos. Can't decide which one is my favorite, I have 111 to choose from!!! Here is just a sampling of the photos that were taken.
I know it has been a long time since my last post, but life is hectic as usual. I went out of town for a work trip and just can't seem to get back into the groove of things at home. I will soon be back to normal and trying to post more than once or twice a month...of course I still don't know if I have any readers, think I am doing this as sort of a journal of my life happenings, hey that is okay too!!!
This weekend is another trip with the girls, it has been planned for awhile and as it gets closer I am starting to dread it more, not that I don't want to go, just that I really want to be home!!! It's a beach trip so I should just have fun and not worry! I promise I will try!!! Gotta get to my errands for the day!
