About Me

My photo
I live in Abilene, TX with my twin boys and husband. I love to make cards and scrapbook and want to learn to sew. I love God and want to serve him every second of my life. I love the fact that I can use cards as a ministry to encourage and brighten others days.

Thinking of Father Stampin up

Here is a card I made for Paul's dad for Father's day. I used the stampin up Thinking of Father stamp set and cut out the glasses from another stamped image to make this a little 3D. Not sure if you can tell by the photo or not.


My Creative Time Throwback Thurs Challenge

Here is my entry for the challenge this week. We were to make a scrapbook page using doodlecharms. I needed to add some pages to my friends scrapbook that I am making for her baby book. This 8X8 page seemed perfect. Hope you enjoy!

Wow this has been a week! I am sooooooo glad to have Friday's off. First I need to get caught up on my cleaning. My DH is not feeling well this week and so we have gotten a little behind on house work. He does so much to help me! I am very lucky. I have a couple things I need to get done. First I made my dad's Father day card and forgot to mail it! Sorry dad its going to be late. I also have to get Paul's dads card made and in the mail. Next I need to come up with a cute project for throwback Thursday. We are using one of my favorite carts Paper dolls! Yeah! But the twist is 3d hmmmmmmmm wander what I'll do. If we go into town maybe I'll swing by Target and see if there is anything in the dollar bin that needs decorated. I don't have any idea at this point. I need to film a video sometime this weekend. And I need to work on scrapbook pages to add to my friends baby book I made here. I think I'm going to try to do a baby smiles page and a fourth of July page. Eating, and crawling, walking, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Valentines day and Easter will probably finish it up. How much can I complete this weekend?????? When I'm done I will do a short video of the pages. I may even add into the video how I made one of the pages. Don't worry after that I am on to a couple other projects I am working on for other people so there is plenty in store. Maybe one day I will get to my own projects. Now on to cleaning so I can get started!

Monday, Monday, Monday

Wow today was a really long day! It was definitely a Monday. I was hoping to work in my craft room tonight but it is just not going to happen. I would really like to know how those of you that work find time to get into the craft room. Some days after multi-tasking all day I just can't get it together enough to get in there and do the things I would really like to do.
Hopefully will get in there tomorrow night and get some things done.

Episode #2

Here is a short video I did of some of my projects and cards. I am working on another video and hope to have it up this coming weekend!

Hope you all have a great week.


My Creative Time Challenge

Here is the card that I made for My Creative time Challenge using blue, brown and red using Stretch your Imagination. I did not own this one but a friend did and let me borrow it. Thank you Paula. Anyway this one is not my usual style but since it was a challenge I decided to do things a little different. Hope you like it.

Baby Shower

We had a great time at the baby shower. I think at one time we counted 36 people squeezed into my living room. It was busting at the scenes and we were having a great time! This is the card I made to go with my gift. Part of my gift was the thank you cards I made the video of earlier this week. I also put together a photo album for her. I have only completed some of the pages and when I finish the rest I will put together a video of them all. Hope you all have a great weekend. By the way I used Create a Critter a lot in the pages I have completed so far.

Thank you Baby cards

Ok I stayed up until 3:30 last night working on part of my present for the Baby Shower next weekend. I am liking the way the thank you cards are turning out. I still am waiting on my hubby to make it back with the camera so I can Post a picture. I am thinking about filming a video of how I made them. We will see........ I have so many projects to do today. Laundry, sweeping, dusting, all the house duties. Dinner at church tomorrow so need to get food together. In the craft room I have to get the baby album done. Still trying to decide how I want to do it. I was going to do first but instead of saying firsts, I think I am just going to do a page for different things. Riding in a car, sleeping, bathing, family picture, a page for a picture with grand parents, sisters, mom, dad, and major holidays, maybe crawling, and eating..... We will see. I may do a video of the finished product if time allows. I also need to finish my nieces album. I am only 9 months late on that one.... sorry! I haven't scrapped much of my own stuff. I am just curious if anyone out there is totally caught up on their scrap booking and what that really looks like. I really need to get some cards made for my dh to use at work. He does a great job of sending out cards when I have them organized for him. It is such a great ministry for both of us.
Well the laundry beeper is going off so I guess my few minutes of rest is over. Will let you know how much I get done today. I still need to post the challenge for My Creative time blog as well.
Did I mention is it really hot here in Texas! I hope to get in the little blow up above ground Pool tonight when my DH gets home.


My Creative Time Challenge

Well I made a card for the My Creative Time challenge only to find out that Paul took the camera with him today. I have also started working on another project. I will hopefully have pictures posted by Sat night.

Have a great weekend.
