I am finally starting to work on a goal...

I have always wanted to work on weekly challenges and now, thanks to Love 4 Stamps ( challenge list, I can. I lost a few hours due to taking a nap but I did manage to get some cards done. Here is one of them:

This is a second one also :) I loved this card so much I made a few of them.

Since it is now November 29th, I can also share my Scrappy Jack November cards. These were so much fun to do and my Pazzles got a workout.

I have 2 more challenges that I want to complete but they will have to wait as work will be here tomorrow. Until next time....

Happy Thanksgiving to us all.....

Well, today was a day of reflection. Lots of changes in our family this year and I am sure that there will be more to come. I am so thankful for the following:

* My family  - my hubby and kids add so much to my life

* My friends - old and new

* My faith - keeps me grounded

* My papercrafting - which gives me an outlet

I hope that you all found a reason to be thankful today. I hope to have some new projects to share soon. Until next time......

Happy Scrappin'

It has been awhile and I have missed blogging....

Greetings all! I hope that this post finds you all well. I have been busy with work and have had little crafting time. I did get to spend some time this Sat with a dear friend and made an awesome project. I will have to post a pic later as I am still cameraless. I am seeking to remedy this soon. How do you all photograph your wonderful projects? Inquiring minds want to know

Friday will be DH's birthday and I cannot wait to celebrate on Sat! I am blessed to have such a avid supporter. 

Since I have been blog hopping lately, I thought it would be appropriate to ask for my followers to share their own website/blog addresses. So feel free to post your links. I enjoy seeing other's works. Well, off to bed I go :)

Until next time.....

A Sunday School Inspiration!

Tomorrow is my day to teach Sunday school. I was unable to become a regular teacher (not due to lack of effort on my part) but I am very happy to teach the preschool class at our Church. I love the innocence of the age as they are like little sponges! Well, I was trying to decide what craft to do with them and since it will be International Day, I thought of love. Loving one another in fact. The "tag" was cut from the Pazzles using their shapes resized to 3" and the ends rounded and the cross was cut an 1.5". I was able to cut out a whole 12 x 12 sheet with a simple copy and paste. So here is what I came up with:

I used this as a sample as I really did not love the lettering . We use Veggietales for the younguns' so "Are You My Neighbor?" is the choice of the day. Well, all the hearts I punched out gave me a simple card idea. This, literally took me less than 5 mins to put together. The only thing I would change is the lettering. I would use small letter stamps, small letter stickers or cut out letters on the Cricut or Pazzles. 

I think I will have to make a video soon showing how quick and easy it is. I will have a new adventure now. To learn to us my Gypsy! :) Until next time....
