Good Monday evening - almost bedtime - spent the evening with a friend, watched Dancing With the Stars - I can say I do hope Kate and Buzz go home this week. But we will see how the votes come in.

Today's card is based on the challenge on Moxie Fab - Picking Up the Pieces - well what cardmaker doesn't have pieces - it was just a matter of figuring out what pieces to use - I just grabbed one of my 6 x 6 pads from Basic Grey and used the scraps that I had so carefully tucked into the pad to use on another day - and last night was the night. I think I just trimmed down one piece, cut the narrow strip in half but the remainder of the pieces were waiting to turn into a card. The card base is the recycled cover of a program. I added the flower over the sentiment because part of the rub on did not adhere - had to cover up that spot and then we had to balance the flower. Add some stickles - we now have a card. I even know who I will send it to. If I can find the address.
Everyone have a wonderful Saturday evening.

Good morning - can't sleep so thought I would post to my blog since the cards are made. It is once again Oldie Moldie Monday - time to dig into your supply of papers, dig out some that has well aged - it is still pretty - but you have fallen under the spell of newer paper and forgotten the beauty of these old collections. This paper I found was 4 sheets of 8 x 8 paper. So I thought I would show them some love - and a little loving later I had made 4 cards.
The first card is based (very loosely) on the sketch at Card Positioning Systems. My stamped image was a little too large to have the stripes come over the top. I dug into the scrap basket for the pink.
Card two: Hero Arts stamp. Cut card base down so that the stamped image could sit above the card base. Twine – May Arts Button from supplies Stamped dots on card base with large background stamp from Hero Arts. The white ink is from Papertrey Ink.
Card Three: Stamp – Inkadinkado Cut stamp with Spellbinders and mounted it on a rectangle. Used my corner rounder on this card. Twine from May Arts. Button, flowers and brads from supplies
Card Four: Sticker – SRM Stickers Blue from scrap basket. Scalloped border – Papertrey Ink
Flours and brad from supplies.
Everyone have a wonderful day and evening and hopefully I can now go and sleep.

Just a very quick post tonight - I have been spending lots of time at the hospital with a friend so tonight I must get lots done. I have to do my taxes since I am going to the tax preparer tomorrow.
My card is my 10th dragonfly card. It is for a call for dragonfly cards on Taylored Expressions.
Everyone have a wonderful evening.

Good morning – it is oldie moldie Monday. The day you post cards that you have made out of your well aged paper. It is a vice – buying paper – so in order to have to buy more paper we must use some of our well loved, (well we loved it one day – the day we bought it) and aged paper. Please join us and you can post your oldie moldie paper cards in our Flicker gallery.
I found this group of paper and it also has 3 sets of coordinating stickers. I did use one sticker on one of the cards. I even made the flower on one of the cards. I used a napkin from some restaurant and cut the layers with the small scalloped spellbinders. I stamped little dots on them and crumpled them up. It turned out pretty good for my first try. I did buy a dictionary at goodwill to use – I wonder where I hid it.
The first card is based on the sketch at The Sweet Shop. It was a fun sketch.
Well time to get going and head out to work – everyone have a wonderful day and I hope you get to spend some time being creative.
Stamp: Hero Arts (thank you and friend) Bird – acrylic stamp – not in package
Paper: Kelly Panacci by Sandylion
Colorbox Chalk Ink by Clearsnap – Chestnut Roan

Good morning from rainy Wisconsin - yeah it is not snow and the yucky snow is melting away - pretty soon we will see ugly brown grass. That will be OK - I had some work done outside last year so I am excited to see how the new grass comes up and also how my new flower beds will look. I have planted lots of tulips last fall so hopefully they will pop up and add lots of color to the front of my house. I imagine I will have lots of dirt therapy this year getting the flower gardens in shape. Alas - my paper budget - may have to be spent on new flowers.
My card this week is based on the sketch at Card Patterns. Somewhat like it. I have discovered this last week I am enjoying the gingham ribbons - I need to go to a store and see if I can find some more. Last night I wanted red gingham and could not find any in all my ribbon. Oh boy, an excuse to go shopping.
Just a quick post - my coffee is done and I desperatly need a cup of it. Going to eat breakfast at work - best food buy around - $5 for a breakfast buffet and you can have omlets made to order - yummy. Going to take my assistant out for breakfast. She works so hard.
Everyone enjoy your day.
Patterned Paper and Stickers: We R Memory Makers
Card Base: oldie moldie from K&Co – pretty embossed with flowers so I rubbed some pink ink on it to show the embossing
Stamp – Michael’s dollar bin colored with Copics

Good Tuesday morning - I don't know if posting in the morning is that good of an idea - I really don't have too much to say when I just get out of bed and haven't had my first cup of coffee.

Good Sunday evening - where did the week end go - I sure could use another day. I have not gotten out of my PJ's today. I guess that is a good day - of course - when I go to pack lunch tomorrow - I may not have anything to eat for lunch - oh well - I can find something.
