SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING BLUE



Good morning Tuesday! It's not fair to start off the day being as tired as you were last night! I was so beat after work yesterday I napped, and then I went to bed early last night! I think I need more coffee!

Today I'm showing off some older images I had in my stash! The top one is from Heather Ellis who designs for MFT. I gave her a suit full of glitter. I got a little carried away! The bottom image is from Whimsie Doodles. I've been hooked on Amy's digi papers for a while and can't seem to get enough. I've been looking for a nice blue set of papers and she must have read my mind, cause there they were! Check out her fine store on Etsy! You could also check out my own store if you'd like to see more!

Well I guess I'm off to work. Enjoy the day!

Hugs,

Peeps Are In The Air!

I got these fun little images from Whimsie Doodles when I was on the DT, but haven't used them until yesterday! Now I can't wait to make more of them! I don't know about you, but I grew up eating Peeps and still can't get enough of them now! I always say I'm going to be good and not eat the whole box, but then I end up doing it anyway! I'm so bad with candy!

We had a nice weekend. How about you? I worked part of the day on Saturday and was off yesterday. What a treat. Barry worked in the morning, so I got lots of things done. I cleaned the kitchen, baked, cooked and even worked on a few cards!

I'm off to work today. I have to end this post and get in the shower. I've already had a few cups of coffee, so I think I can make it until 2 at work---50-50 chance at least!

Have a great day!

Hugs,

We're Back

No, we didn't leave town or anything so grand as that. Our computer died and Evan had to replace the power source! It had been going for some time and finally at the beginning of the week---nothing! You'd think that because I couldn't get on the computer, I'd have lots of time to create, but it seems I'm lost without my Internet all together! Because I do so much digital now, I can't seem to think without it! I did enjoy my time away. We did the wash, slept late and even saw a movie. Too bad I have to go back to work today!

I'll be back tomorrow. Have to have coffee now!

IT'S MONDAY AND A LITTLE WHIMSIE!

By Whimsie, I mean Whimsie Doodles digi image! Isn't he a fun kind of guy. It's the perfect way to start the week. Bright and charming! All the papers are from Amy at Etsy. I just love her papers. Always perfect! If you do digi, please check her out!

I had a great weekend doing very little. I slept late, rested well, ate too much, and got to play in my creation station. What more could a gal ask for. Well, I could have asked for a weekend in Maui, but I didn't have much chance at that, so I got what I got! Lunch with Evan, Mandy, and Coco was great. Walking in the park to see the ducks was so fun. I really enjoy seeing that dog think she can out run the ducks. Today and tomorrow I have to work, and then I'm off for 2 more days. It's going to rain on Wednesday so I'm planning now what to do.

Have a wonderful day. Check out my store if you can. I've added some fun new cards!

YEA, It's Saturday!

And it's time to celebrate the weekend! I don't often get off for the weekend, but I'm this week and let me tell you, I plan to enjoy every minute of it! This morning I slept later then usual, had a nice cuppa, and played on the computer. I got some new digi papers printed out, but I think they're too pretty to cut yet, and now I have to plan out the day! We're going to Evan's later to have a nice visit with the kids (Coco), and take her to the park to visit with the ducks, and then enjoy the rest of the afternoon until Barry has to be at work at 4. Pretty much planned the same for tomorrow as well.

Have a wonderful day and hurry back!

Hugs,

It's Almost Friday!

I do wake up every morning and thank the Lord that I've made it another day! I try and take each day as it comes and be grateful for that!

So Fun!



Today's card is made using a Sassy Cheryl's digi stamp and a MFT's verse! Love them both. The card is entered into the weekly challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's. It's been a while since I've done that but if you don't enter, you can't win!

I'm off today and Barry is taking me shopping for shoes. That is Croc shoes. We're headed to the outlet today to see if I can find sneakers. Evan and Mandy got me some but they are too small. The sizing seems to run small and before we mail them back to the place they bought them on line, I'll try and see if the store has them! PINK Sneakers are what I want!

Have a great day!

OH RATS, IT'S MONDAY!



It just seems like it was Sunday, and now it's time to go to work again! What's up with that! At least Sunday turned out to be a fun day. Mandy came over in the afternoon and we make 40 of these cuties. Sorry my picture isn't too clear, but my dinning room light doesn't give me good pics. Take my word, they are sweet! I found this digi element in my stash from last Easter and printed it out. Then we did the green plaid and on the back of the cupcake pin is the same pin dot as the baby blanket! The colors of the shower are pink, green, and yellow, so we added the yellow bows! Because it was all digi, they were a snap to make! Cuttlebug was the real star!

The card was made using lots of scraps from my desk. I love the way it turned out. I just printed the verse on white cs and added the printed papers. I wanted my big butterfly to be the star of the show, but I got a little carried away with the die buttons as well. Gotta love it all!

I'm off to work 1/2 day, so have a fun one yourself!

Hugs,

P

OH HAPPY SUNDAY!

I'm such a happy camper today! It's Sunday and I don't have to work! I know I should be in bed and sleeping the day away, but the sun is out and Barry is sleeping, so I have time to myself and that is wonderful! It's been so busy at work for the last 3 days that it felt like our pre-Christmas everyday! I don't really have much planned for the day. I'll just let whatever happen. Maddy might come over. She wants me to make some cupcake toppers for her. She's going to a baby shower next week and needs them. I'm always happy to help out. Anything for my Evan. Other then that, I'm just going to let Sunday happen!

Today's card is using MFT New Year's girl. I love it for birthdays. I was going to paper piece her dress, but I got lazy. The celebrate is from a $ stamp at M's. I just never know what I'll find in any given box in my studio! Paper is of course, digi!

Have a blessed day and hurry back!

If It's Way Too Early, It's Saturday!

There ought to be a law about getting up so early on Saturday and having to work as well! As much as the Republicans want to get into what my body can or can't do, why don't they feel the need to for my body to have more sleep today! Guess it's not going to happen!

Fun layout? Why yes it is! Check out the button. Paper!

Coffee is calling me now, so have a good day!

Hugs,

Riley Is Still A Good Guy!

No matter how many other companies I got to, Riley The Moose is still tops with me! All these darling little guys warm the heart! I saw this layout on the web and it was perfect for this birthday card!
Yesterday turned out to be such a fun day. I work for 4 hours, but that when by quickly enough when I knew I was going to pick Madelyn up at 1:15 after they got out of school early! Larry called bright and early to see if I could help out---what a silly question! We went to Joann's and got more candy making items and then headed home for a fun afternoon! I wanted our project to have an "end" game, so I suggested making candy bags for her Brownie Troop meeting next week! She did all the work herself on making the candy lips and roses and then added a paper heart to the outside of the bag and I tired a bow around the top of the bags. I wanted to take a picture of them with her, but she wanted no parts of that, so you'll just have to take my word, they were perfect! Last night after her Daddy picked her up, the four of us went to Olive Garden for dinner. Tina had to work, so I got to spend time with Barry, Larry, and Madelyn myself! Loved it!
Today I'm working from 2-6 and that means I have all morning to play and update my stash of cards! I added lots of new ones to my Etsy store, so check them out!
Gotta run now and get something done!
Hugs,
P

Been MIA!

I'm hoping I still have followers and they've been wondering where in the world I've been, so let me show you some of what I've been up to since the first of the year! Of course it hasn't taken all my time, but I have been busy doing some new cards for the store and they'll be in a day or two. Today's creation is for the Make n Take tomorrow night I'm doing. Right now I have 14 coming so I've been busy making the kits to take with me. My dinning room smells so good---just like Dove chocolate! Each card has been cut and is ready to bag up for tomorrow. I'm also taking some of the new creations I've made in hopes they'll want to purchase!
Well, since the first of the year Barry and I have been very busy. We bought a new TV for the bedroom. Ours was on it's very last leg. The new 37" is wonderful to watch. It's best watched from the new bed we bought last week! It was beyond dead and I truly feel so much better now! It was such a long year in 2011, but we have high hopes that this new year will bring a peaceful start, middle and ending for us! We're both working and now getting Social Security and I have to say, that's the best security we've had in a long time!
I gotta go and cut the last of the ribbon and package it all up now, so enough the day and please come again and visit!
Hugs,
P
