Birthday Hugs & wishes

Birthday Hugs & Wishes 

Puched flowers really make this card pop. Adding the pearls give this card some depth & prissiness. I love the orange and the green together! I guess my bow couldn't been a little tighter too, huh? 

Have a great day ! Hug the ones you love! Thanks for stopping by!

Lawn Fawn - Monster Mash

I am the biggest cheerleader for anyone in the family who plays a sport, participates in club, the arts, whatever. Even when the chose something that isn't a spectator sport... like the 1SG. He shoots High Power Marksmen. This is not something that you attend as a spectator.... seriously... just trust me.    Usually, I get the up the morning he has his shoots, get his coffee & light breakfast going, wish him luck as he leaves... as early as 5am, because I sat thru ONE... and that was IT for me.    

This weekend he heads out of state for a shoot, with a few buddies so I tucked this cutie in the luggage.  I hope it brightens his morning & maybe even bring him some luck!

Serene Silhouettes Sympathy

My heart is reaching out to you,
For what you’re going through;
I’m thinking of you frequently
And praying for you, too.

If there’s something I can do,
Anything at all,
Think of me thinking of you,
And don’t hesitate to call.

Thanks for stopping by!
Hug the ones you love! 
Have a great day!

Boo Crew & Boo You!

I have a 2016 goal to get my holiday cards out before the holidays... no matter what holiday it is (birthdays, anniversaries included).  This is sometimes very difficult for me because I forget to take picture upon completion and I want to do that among the other chaos, and then I am late/forget. Procrastination at its best - they are being addressed and 1SG is stuffing envelopes and I am like "OH WAIT"... Click (with camera phone).  No best lighting but still just as cute.


I really am trying to keep to that 'goal' ... its October and I have only missed 6 birthdays! LOL.. thats usually the reminder I get from the other half.  I have started on the Christmas cards... GOAL=  completed about 10 a week. Starting in  September. To date: I have made 15 & 7 of those are not glued together, they are ready for assembly - thats half the battle right?

I have a good excuse... I made 20 of these little pumpkin guys- and they were a time consuming! 


And then we went to the Apple Orchard, and I have been cooking & preparing for the applesauce making. 1SG ran the Army Ten Miler, on October 9, so we spent the weekend in DC, and so... 

I will catch up... I promise! ... a few late nights before December 6 most likely!

Vegan dinner invitation

2 weeks of research. {which I got educated}
4 drafts.   
Longest time its taken for invitations ever. 


Vegan dinner Party Menu: 
Black bean burgers, Baked Mac, Roasted potatoes, Salad, Buffalo cauliflower pitas, homemade Ranch dressing, Spiced Carrot cake & brownies 

Why a Vegan Dinner party? A friend of mine has become a vegan (like just in the last 6 months or so)...and her husband lives/eats/survives as like a "viking". Meshing the two worlds to have alittle party. The party was a hit!  

Have a great day! Hug the ones you love!  Thank you for stopping by!

Pretty Pumpkin -found among the Halloween stamps

I am not sure when I created this card, but I found it when I was searching for my halloween stamps.. so if this is duplicate, my apologizes.   

I have a habit of making Halloween pumpkin with punch art. I like the look of them, since I can get the color I want & its pretty simple... its just time consuming. 


The swirl on the this card must have been a die I once had because I went searching for it and its not around. I like it though! 


I even managed to stamp the inside, with a roller! WAHOO! I was proactive when I did this design! 


Have a great day!

Thank you

I cleaned up the desk the other day, and found some butterflies, and instead of putting them in a container for later use, I thought I might just use them, so when I do need a thank you card, one is already completed.  I used the gorgeous grunge for the splatter and sentiment  from another thank you. Added some hemp and it was done!  


Now if I could just get started one some Christmas cards ! 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
