The card is based on the Tuesday Trigger on Moxie Fab World. The Tuesday Trigger was a beautiful yellow card. This is my take on the trigger. I used kraft paper, yellow, have a bow with a button on it and a border at the top of the card. It also qualifies for the challenge on Caardvarks which is to use a sticker. I finally found the SRM stickers for cards at a store in Madison. Yeah. Such an easy way to finish off a card.
Everyone have a wonderful evening - I need to do some laundry, etc. Dishes - I cooked today - so I have a mess to clean up. Come back tomorrow for Oldie Moldie Monday.

Good Saturday evening. A quick post tonight. Was on the raod today - went and visited with my mom - she is 92 years old - an amazing woman - we got groceries and went out to lunch - we had a visit after lunch from the youngest grandchild who is 7. Lots of driving in one day but I do not trust winter weather. Of course, on the way home, I had to take a break and do a little retail therapy - I aws good I did not buy anything at Archiver's - I had no coupon and nothing really spoke to me so I left there and went to the Scrapbook Superstore. I did manage to buy a few things there. I didn't buy any stamps.
Everyone have a wonderful evening.

Good evening - I had a wonderful day with my friend Mary stimulating the paper crafting economy - took her to a new store she had never been to - so that is always fun to introduce Mary to someplace new. Bought lots of new stuff - more ribbon - as if I don't have enough. We had a nice lunch at Panera and then we went to a new Ben Franklin - we found the cutest project there that we are going to make - hopefully soon. And I bought more ribbon. I only bought two more stamps but when I got home - my Papertrey Ink order had arrived - so I am excited - I am going to play tonight. Check out some of the sketches and see what inspires me. I do need to make a birthday card this week end - purple in color.
Caardvarks is sponsoring a challenge using Stickers - the challenge is sponsored by SRM Stickers. The challenge is to use stickers - since I have no SRM Stickers - I used one of the beautiful Penny Black floral stickers - need a touch of spring in our snowy world.
Everyone have a wonderful evening and a great week end - I hope it includes lots of creativity.

Good evening everyone - it is snowing again in Wisconsin - just light snow but 3 to 4 days of light snow adds up after awhile. Someone said Spring was coming - and I am hoping they are not telling a lie. We would settle for some sunshine also.
SRM Stickers blog has a challenge for the month of February to use chipboard and stickers. So far I have not been able to find any SRM Stickers to buy around me so I know they are selling their stickers online so I am going to place my order. They have some great ones for cards which is what I create.
I used the stickers I had in my supplies - one on the tree and another one on the little tag. Luckily I had some coordinating chipboard and paper in my supplies.
My card tonight is for my assistant's birthday. I know she will like it. She is a quilter so she appreciates the effort that goes into a handcrafted card. I usually give her a group of handmade cards for her gift also. Two weeks of not creating due to my cold has put me a little behind. I had better get busy this week end.
Everyone have a wonderful evening.

Good Tuesday evening. Busy day at work plus we had the Olympic Potluck which was fun and very tasty. We had some great food and great sharing of friendship - you don't always get to share time with the people you work with in your building. This brings many of us together in a social outing. Needless to say I am really not too hungry. I am sure eventually I will want to eat something.
My card tonight is based on the weekly sketch at the Card Positioning Systems. A new sketch every Sunday. I made this card to send to an online friend who I have become close to. Her husband was wounded in Afghanistan in October 2008. Today Ty turned 40 - God does work miracles. The family is not far my heart so wanted to sent a card. Anna is one of the most creative women I know so I know she appreciates everything you do for you.
Everyone enjoy your evening. I hope to do a little creating tonight. I hope.

Good morning - I normally post in the evening but I am up and early today so I might as well do something worthwhile - post on my blog - I could do housework, etc. but that would be no fun.
On Monday's I try to post cards that I have made with paper I have had sitting around the house gracefully aging. Actually most of the cards that I made over the week end are from well aged paper.
We had snow last night but the storm went south of us so we are not getting dumpled on - a couple inches is much easier to handle than 10 inches. The drive to work shouldn't be too difficult. Living in Wisconsin - they are well prepared to take care of the snow on the roads.
Today's first card is based on the sketch at Get Sketchy. I had colored the image while I was sick so I was waiting for a sketch challenge that used a big circle. The second card was roaming around in my head so I put it onto paper. I got my excercise doing all those rubons.
Everyone have a wonderful day.

I have finally joined the ranks of people who finally feel good. Two weeks with a horrible cold zapped everything out of me - not only was it the cold but I had a reaction to a medicine which contributed to my exhaustion. But I am better - and I got to create and I also got some housework done. Yeah!! All ready for the next snow storm to come through. Boo - hiss.

I made a quick card last night to send to my son in law who just got a job in his area of study. He is very excited. I used the sketch from Taylored Expressions - I just put the stripe at the bottom over the top of my image - I wanted to highlight the blue. I don't have much left of this BG paper - I really liked it for masculine projects. It could have qualified for Oldie Moldie monday also. The Hero Arts stamp is so versatile - male/female, different occasions, etc.
Thanks everyone for stopping by and now I am thinking it must be about time for the morning nap.

Oldie Moldie monday returns - I am still sick - did go to the clinic - I just have a horrific cold that has settled in my head - gave me an expensive decongestion. Hope it works - I do want to return to work - I hate being home when you don't feel good - there are no good shows on TV - don't feel like crafting. We are suppose to have a snow storm tomorrow - so another good day to be a home rather than on the roads.

This card is based on the sketch at OCC Weekly Sketch. A very versatile sketch. I will keep this short - I need to go make a cup of tea and head back to the couch.
