My Baby

Hi everyone, boy I want to craft but the other day one or two of our pets decided to have accidents in the craft room, the carpet was yucky from over the past few years with pets and all, I have been wanting to rip it up, but keep putting it off well after this mess there was no way to clean it so the past couple days I have been ripping carpet up and ripping nails ( the dumb guy that put this carpet in was nail happy) so my hands hurt very bad, not a good thing to do when you have carpal tunnel but It had to be done.  so with half my craft stuff in the front room and the other half still its it room. so hopefully I can get it cleaned up well enough to make a card or two notice there are some awesome sketches this week..  well anyway I'm on the computer surfing and my cat came to visit I just had to take a picture it was funny, lately when I'm on she likes to lay up here, excuse the mess but here is my silly cat..

sorry for the rambling just thought it was funny the way she was laying and I miss posting on my blog

hope everyone has a good night

Inspirational Card Sketches

Good morning! I made this last night , silly me I completely forgot a friend Heather is a DT over at Inspirational Card Sketches  so i thought this week I would try it out, they have a really cute sketch to follow, I had to think about this one, trying to think of a image that would fit in the middle and then this stamp caught my eye. and I had this camping/ outdoor paper pack I bought a while ago. so I decided to use it.

001

Hope everyone has a good day, I’m off to therapy in a few, got a cortisone shot a week and half ago, it was working great but now I'm not so sure.

thank you for stopping by

something different for me

Hi everyone, hope everyone is doing well, wow today I have done nothing except web surf and finished a project, I have to snap out of this lazy mode im in..

well I’ve gotten my self into another hobby, part of it started by Bev with the charms she use’s on her flowers so I starting buying charms then chains then beads , well over the past month I have picked up so much stuff its on real, but in the mean time I also found this site Vintage Flaire and that started the vintage stuff. some of my past posts where for postcard art and ATC I love the vintage look now so much… but anyway one of the ladies over at the Vintage Flair has inspired me so much to try harder at this stuff her work is just beautiful she had posted some tags for us to use and this is what I did with one of them…   sorry about the rambling but I just love this stuff……LOL

Hi Everyone

Hi everyone, boy feels like I haven't made a card forever, I’ve been working on a couple swaps a secret sister swap over at cafe mom and a ATC swap at paper craft planet. that has been taking my time. Plus also went to doctors today, and he gave me a cortisone shot in what they say is a trigger point, boy did that hurt after. felt it all the way down my arm too.. and got 4 more weeks of therapy and they are ordering me home neck traction thing. what stinks about all this other than the pain, I have been off work 2 months now, and really cant do much, my house is trashed and I want to have a garage sale and make a lot of cards and when I start something I have to stop because it just hurts to much… but hey I can still shop for the stuff….LOL

Just wanted to post a update and hopefully I will make a card soon

thanks for listen and have a great day
