Everything But The Kitchen Sink Challenge # 28- Textures

Good morning! It's time for another EBTKS challenge! I had a really fun time with this project! Ann used this picture of this fuzzy blanket and pillow as her inspiration. So we were to make a card with textures. My first thought was a fuzzy baby blanket. So I figured since the blanket and pillow were blue, I went with a boy theme. Here is my baby boy card. I used left-overs from Chace's blanket I made him last year. It's SO soft! I want to make one for a baby girl now! :)Our sponsor this time is LimeLight papercrafts! And here is the package up for grabs to the winner.So stop by the EBTKS blog for all the details and check out all the other DT's cards.

Have a Blessed day!

I'm full, but yet I keep wanting to eat more! :) I will be sleeping in tomorrow, as I DO NOT do the Black Friday! I would rather sleep and we had a cold front come in tonight, so it's going to be COLD! :)

I hope ya'll had a Blessed day! :)

Thank You Card

Hey everybody! Here is another Thank You card that wasn't accepted. It was the first time I have ever used the Butterfly dies and I think the last! :( Not because I don't love them, but I forget that I have them or I get new stuff and I want to use it! I need to break out all my "older" stuff and use it more!
Look how pretty those butterflies are! :)

Well that's it for today! I need to get stuff ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow! :)
Have a Blessed day!

Happy Birthday Baseball Boys!

Well hello! I am here today with some Birthday cards I made for Chace's friends months ago! :) The friends were actually on his baseball team at the time, so I figured I should make them in their "real" uniforms! So here they are in the orange, black, and white uniforms! :) (This is before I got my Copics, so I used colored pencils.) Here is a close-up of the grass! The Practicing Creativity stamp, Just Dandy" worked great for this!

Have a Blessed day!

Thank You So Much Card

Hey everybody! I'm here today to show some another card that I submitted and wasn't accepted. I really like how it turned out, very simple! And I love that I can still use it if it doesn't get accepted. I haven't submitted anything in several month's. Just taking a little break. But maybe I should send out or give away ALL of my "reject" cards before I submit again?! Lets see if I can do it! :) I guess I could give away some as Christmas gifts too! :) I need to go through all of them. I'm getting lazy about not posting the supplies. So if you have a question about something, just ask! :)

Have a Blessed day!

Sweet Baby Card & Custom made ribbon

Hey everybody! I wanted to show you a card that I made with inspiration for Kristina Werner. I loved her card and I love this one! There is just something about those different color onesies, that I LOVE! :)And look at this ribbon. I custom made it to match the onesies. It was a satin white ribbon and I just used my Copics to make stripes. I have to do this again! :) Here are the colors I used!
Supplies: Cardstock-(PTI) Sweet Blush, White, Melon Berry; Stamps- (PTI) Mega Mixed Messages, (Dulces Ideas) Welcome Baby; Ink- (Memento) Tuxedo Black, Ribbon- (Offray) White satin; Other- Copics
Well I am going to spend the day with some of the Momma's from Chace's football team today. We are going over to one of the ladies houses to make breakfast burritos and make a slide show of the boys for their banquet this Friday! We have all became really close and because we don't see each other almost everyday at football practice anymore, so we all decided to get together every week for lunch or craft (I can't wait for that)! I think we might make Christmas cards soon! I need to get that together! :) We had lunch the week before last and we were in the restaurant for almost 4 hours! Most of us are SAHM, so we are able to get together while the kids are in school. We all laugh til it hurts! :)

Have a Blessed day!

Thanks for everything card

Hey everybody! I wanted to share a card I made for a PC publication that didn't get accepted. I used the Mehndi Medallions for Wplus9 Design Studio. I really love these stamps and I love this color combo! :) Here is a close-up of those Beautiful stamps!
I have still been dealing with my throat. I am still taking the antibiotics the Dr. prescribed, but still having issues. The thought comes in my mind, will it ever go away, but I have to keep believing in the healing! I'm getting very frustrated and starting to wonder if it has anything to do with the shot I received from the dentist that day, like damage to the nerves or something! A million ideas have went through my head,of what it could be, but I still have no answers!
I am still praying for a complete healing in Jesus name and ask if you would continue to pray to. Thanks so much for praying so long already!

Have a Blessed day!

A Simple Layout

Hey! Happy Friday! It will be a busy weekend for us. We have the "Super Bowl" for the Pee Wee football league at our school, so that means 6 play-off games tomorrow at our field and hours of working in the concession stand! Chance will be announcing 3 of the games. Our team did get beat a couple of weeks ago in our first play-off game. The other team did have some cheating going on and the refs had some bad calls and the score board wasn't working, which meant the clock didn't work! So they had to keep asking the press box what the time was! Very aggravating, and I'm not just complaining because I'm a sore loser...really I'm not! If the team was better, than I can admit that...but they weren't! Our boys were Devastated! :(
Our older team from our town is in the Supper Bowl, and I really think they will win! :)

Ok, I wanted to share a layout that I made over the Summer. I know...I am waaayyy behind on posting my projects! I really am trying to get caught up! :)
I have had this pic printed out for awhile, I usually would have wanted it in black and white, because of all the colors. But it was printed, so I just went with it! I really like the collage of flowers and the butterfly.

Well that's it for today.

I hope ya'll have a Blessed weekend!

Wishing You A Speedy Recovery & Thank You Veterans

Hey everybody! I have been trying to get back into posting on my blog. I have so many projects and sometimes it just seems like to much work to even get started on editing pics! But I edited a ton of pics this weekend, so that helps alot!

So today's card is a card I made for my sweet friend Kelley! I tried to make a card that she would like, so I made it on kraft and used a single black pearl! And that is what she told me she noticed first! I love when that happens! :)

I also want to Thank all the Veterans that have served, are serving, and will serve one day! At my son's school they are having a book fair this week, and the theme of the book fair is "Hero's"! They had to do a project, where they had to write about their Hero and draw a picture of them. Chace wrote about his Grandpa David (Chance's Dad) and how he fought in the Vietnam War. He told his Daddy he would have wrote about him, but he wanted to write about how his Grandpa fought in the war! How sweet is that?!

Me and the kids never got to meet David, he died from cancer when Chance was 13 years old. But I know that we would have LOVED him and he would have LOVED us! He truly loved Chance and I know now that Chance shows his kids love the way his Dad showed him love! I wanted to share a pic of his dad when he was in his late 20's. He looks SO much like Chance! :)
I hope you all have a Blessed day!

A Note of Thanks Card

Hey everybody! I wanted to share a card today! It's for all of you who have been praying for me! I really Thank Ya'll SO much! Prayer is VERY important in my life and I take it very seriously. Please let me know if I can ever repay you, by praying for you too!
My little man "Chace" is home sick with strep throat! :(
But praise God there hasn't been any fever! Remember last year when he had it and had 105.3 fever! That was SCARY!! But it is very contagious, so he has to stay home from school until tomorrow. I don't like for them to be sick, but I do enjoy them being home with me! :)
The card looks better in person. It's a little hard to get a good pic with this Smokey Shadow cardstock for PTI.

Well that's it for today! I'm going to hang out with my little man! :)

Have a Blessed day!

Hey! Well today I wanted to share the gift tags I made for my niece's Birthday (in August). They matched their cards that I made them here. They had a swimming Birthday party, so these went perfect with the theme. I LOVE how they turned out! :) These are some of my favorite Lawn Fawn stamps.
I went to the throat Dr. again yesterday to go over the CAT scan results. He said the CAT scan looked normal, no stones in the saliva glands. He was still unsure as to what is going on. He said sometimes your tonsils can have some issues going on and cause the glands to swell. He suggested maybe taking the tonsils out if it continues. I suggested maybe trying another round of antibiotics to see if that helps, so that is what he did.
It is still frustrating, but I am still trying to Thank the Lord for the good results that I have gotten! It could be ALOT worse! I will continue to pray for the healing and ask if you would Please do the same. I have to remember that healing is in His time...not my own!

Have a Blessed day!
