Sending hugs

Hello fellow crafters and bloggers.
Hope to find you all doing well and doing something
fun.
Here is another card that I created. I'm using stamp sets
and cardstock that has been in my stash for a while.

I'm trying to use my dies a bit more and trying to add
layers. Kind of hard for me since I like the simple things
in life. Kind of a plain Jane. I hope you like this card.
Until my next post Have A Splendid Day!!!!

Birthdays and Butterflies

Hello fellow crafters and bloggers.
Hope to find you well rested and ready for another work
week.
The weather was so nice here that I actually cooked outside.
Nothing like a BBQ. I made hamburgers and hotdogs one
day and steak the next. It was delicious. I am so ready for
spring and summer to get here.
Here is another card that I made for a challenge I love
the butterflies that are on the ribbon. I am having fun
going through my craft supplies and using up some of
my stash. The sentiment is stamped on Spellbinders
Dies. It is actually two different die sets stacked. I
think that it turned out really nice.
Hope you like my card.
Until my next post Have A Splendid Day!!!!!

Take one, ....action

Good Morning fellow crafters and bloggers,
Hope you are all enjoying your day.
I have been having a little bit of technical difficulties
that I haven't posted for a couple of days.
Here is a card that I made for a challenge but as you
can see the pictures aren't that great.
 
I will try to get some better pictures of this card and
of the other creations that the pictures are not doing them
justice. Hopefully I can figure it out.
Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered into the
giveaway.
Until my next post Have A Splendid Day!!!!!!

Color an Image


Hello fellow crafters and bloggers.
Hope to find you all doing well. I'm doing great
now that I can see. No nothing happened to my
eyes, I just got my new glasses. Now that my eyes
don't get as tired I sat and watched a few tutorials.
The card  I had made back in 2012 with a digi that
I colored. It takes me a while to color my stamped
images or digi. Today I learned a much faster and
easier way to color. Hmmm kind of sounds like
I might be three or four learning how to color.
....LOL....
I watched Kim from Kimbo Kreations on
YouTube and she did the picture above. She had
this image colored in about three minutes. You
can watch her tutorial   Here 
I colored several images last night thanx to Kim.
You really need to check out her tutorial.
I better go I have a lot of coloring to do , but before
I go just a reminder about my giveaway. Don't forget
to leave a comment on any of blog posts.
Until my next post Have A Splendid Day!!!!

He lights the way

Hello fellow crafters and bloggers.
Hope to find you all doing well and ready for another
week. I can say that I am ready to get back to a schedule
of sorts.
Todays project isn't mine but another tealight candle
holder that my husband made. In the picture below is
what it really looks like. I can say that he is lighting
my way....LOL....

In the header picture and the picture below are samples
of what can be done with them to use as d├ęcor.

It looks like its going to be another wild week since
we have a winter storm moving in. We have had spring
like weather since the end of January. Now almost the
end of March and we are getting winter storms. Oh well
shouldn't complain maybe we will get the amount of
snow we need on the mountain to keep us in enough
water for the year. We can only hope.
Speaking about hope I hope that you leave a  comment
on my post to be entered for my giveaway.
Until my next post Have A Splendid Day!!!!!

Ribbon, Lace and Flowers

Hello fellow crafters and bloggers.
Hope to find you all doing well and enjoying your
weekend. I hope I can get some crafting time in. It is
suppose to rain so I plan to spend my time inside.
In my header picture is another card I made. Kind of
simple because I am trying really hard to use my stash.
Sorry I missed posting yesterday, the day just got real
crazy. My husband realized that he needed to get in and
get his DOT physical done that very day or he would be
in jeopardy of loosing his CDL. Got him in and got it done
before the end of the day. I had bills to pay and get some
groceries we were out of just about everything. The lawn got
mowed before the rain moved in. By the evening I was
spent.
The pictures of the flowers are some of the items that I
am adding to my giveaway. Remember to leave a
comment to be entered. I will continue adding to my
giveaway until I reach 100 followers then I will draw
 a name.

The next couple of days will be crazy. I need to get my
husband ready to be gone for a few days. He has to go
to Redding to the corporate office for some meetings.
Until my next post Have A Splendid Day!!!!!!

A little light

Hello fellow bloggers and crafters.
Hoping to find you doing well and creating.
I'm a little late in my post today had some battery
issues yesterday. The batteries were dead in my
camera, gypsy, and phone. When there is no power
in my tools it makes it for a crazy day.
Today I bring you one of my husbands candle holders.
 
It holds a tea-lite candle and it will be going in my
etsy shop some time today. The picture above is just
one way that it can be used to decorate in the fall.


This is another way to use it in the spring and summer.
Hope you like the candle holder. Until my next post
Have A Splendid Day!!!!!!

Taxi please!

Hello Fellow bloggers and crafters.
Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the day.
Are you wearing your green today? I am.
My card today is another simple card that I made
to join Beths challenge for last month.
 
I am trying to use a lot of my stash. Many crafters that
I know are on a spending freeze and are challenging
other crafters to use their stash. My challenge for myself
is to try and use all the stamps I own at least once. So
far I am doing pretty good. I used two different stamps
on this card. I won't put myself on a spending freeze
because I know that I wouldn't make it. I would see
something that my brain would tell me that I really
need it. Isn't it the way most of us crafters would
think?
Well I hope that if you have a challenge that you have
made for yourself that you can stay with it.
Thank you for stopping by and Have A Splendid
Day!!!!!

Out from under the covers

Hello fellow bloggers and crafters
Look who has finally crawled out from under the covers
so to speak. For some time now I have been telling you
that changes were coming. I have been making cards but
basically for challenges that give cards to specific groups
or nonprofits to cheer people up. The card above is one
I made. Very simple and geared towards a child.
Now for some of the changes.
Below is a new product that I will that I have added to
my Etsy shop.

The wooden pencil holder is something that my husband
is doing. He decided to enter into the craft world with me.
He is also working on tables and candle holders. So more
to come soon. You probably have noticed the change in
my banner. Working on giving my blog a new look. I
guess you could say I'm doing some spring cleaning
....LOL....

The flowers in the picture above is what I am adding to
my giveaway. The picture below is what The giveaway
started with.

I also have a giveaway on my Youtube channel. Make
sure to go check that out. Watch my video and leave
a comment there to be entered. Don't forget to leave a
comment on this blog for a chance to win. Follow
the link below for my Youtub channel.
Well I guess that is enough for today. Don't want
to overload anyone with to much sharing.
So
Hope you all had a great weekend until my next post
Have A Splendid Creative Day!!!!!
