I am so grateful it is a new week, a new day... A fresh start! Aren't you?
I might have shared this before but I have this "reminder" on my mirror...
This is the beginning of a new day.
God has given me this day to use as I will.
I can waste it or grow in its light
and be of service to others.
But what I do with this day is important because
I have exchanged one day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever.
I hope I will not regret the price I paid for it.
My card today was a super quick one. Great for when you need to make a card FAST! I used a Hero Arts stamp set that comes with the dies to cut the images out. I used some scraps that were laying on my desk. The striped tape is from Target in the office/school supply section. It comes in 4 different color packs. I'm loving the washi tapes that are out there...fun to use!
Have a great day. And thanks for letting me vent the other day...I like to keep this place as happy as I can but you know every once in awhile you can get "overwhelmed" with junk in your life and just have to get it out there! Nothing I can do about most of it and I refuse to let it ruin my day today! I have some serious creating to do...hee hee.
See you soon!!

Got a new camera card so we are back in business!
I am loving these bears from Lili of the Valley. So Cute! I guess I am in an orange and pink mood these last few days..lol! I love that the sentiment came with the stamp. The little butterfly is a Marianne die.
Ok...I know this is my happy place but I need to vent a little and this is the "safest" place to do it....
Someone VERY close to me "borrowed" my credit card without my permission. I caught it right away and confronted them. It took 2 days for an apology and even then I don't think they were really sorry, only sorry they got caught. They have asked before and I allowed it but this time they just took the card and used it then quietly put it back. I am so upset as this is someone who knows right from wrong and was not raised that way!! I help them as much as I can but come on, don't be sneaky. Not sure what I should do about it. They have no money so they are not in a position to pay me back and if they just would have asked it wouldn't have been an issue.
Just not sure what to do...I am sad, mad and disappointed. And when my husband finds out he is gonna be really pissed and there is already so much tension going on. And since I LIVE here I am going to be the one that has to HEAR about it!
Thanks for letting me "say it out loud" to someone. Now I just have to figure out how to handle it....
Definitely need some crafting therapy!! Hope to get to it ASAP!

My camera card broke so I am trying to post with my phone...wish me luck! Every time I close this out and check the picture, it is side ways. Hopefully the third time is a charm!
This cute little bear is by Lili of the Valley. There images are adorable! I used some K & Co paper from the Berry sweet collection. I have a few larger stamps from them that I want to work with next. Have a great day!
Not chatty today..my kids have me on an emotional rollercoaster and this chick has had enough for 1 day..LOL!!
See you soon

This was a quick card I made with.....wallpaper border!! I saw the flowered border and thought it would look neat on a card! I added some grey accent pieces but not sure if I like them or not. Do you think it looks to busy with them? I love to color and stamp but also love to create cards with all kinds of things I find. Have a great day!

Quick post today. I have sooo much to do! I just wish I had the motivation to go with it.... I got the idea for this watermelon from a blog I visit. I love how she used the scallops for the white part. Of course I changed the rest up. I found the ribbon at Catans and that's what dictated the colors I used. Love hot pink & green together. Thanks for popping in today. Gotta run...
See you soon!

Hello & TGIF!!
It's another HOT one here in Ohio!
My Dad is going to be 70 tomorrow...how can that be? We are having a BBQ with some family and friends to celebrate. I had the start of this card in my stash but changed it around and added some things. On the tag I wrote that he is not old just Vintage. He keeps saying how old he is but I think he has many more birthdays ahead of him. Hope he enjoys the get together and celebrating this milestone birthday!
The stamps I used are by Tim Holtz.
Thanks for dropping by. I have so much to get done this weekend in regards to creating. Hope my creative juices start flowing...
See you soon!!

My MOJO has been lost. I would sit down at my desk and try to make something but just couldn't. NO creativity,...zip, nada, nothing....Not sure what the problem is.
But I did make SOMETHING today! A Wedding card. Fairly simple but at least it is SOMETHING! I used some Cherry Lynn dies. In fact everything I used on this card is by Cheery Lynn. I think you could use it for a wedding card or an anniversary card. I used the gray, silver, black color combo but I want to try some others. Think I might try something in pinks.
Thanks for visiting today if there is still anybody out there! Ive been to the Dr. and they are switching some of my medications around to hopefully combat all the fatigue I am experiencing. Summer/ Hot weather plays havoc on me with my MS. Sucks the life right out of me and makes it difficult to walk at times. But I am hanging in there and looking for my MOJO...If you see it, send it to me ASAP! I have a lot to get done and I NEED it!! I don't think its far..hopefully just lurking around in the corner waiting to be found. LOL!!
Have a great day!
PS..I have been buying my Cheery Lynn dies at www.happyscrappy.us
