New week

This is the last father's day card I have made. Last night I finished the kids birthday invitations. This stamp came from Stampin'Up with the car stamp from yesterday. I think I got the card idea from the stampin' up idea book too. Right now I can't remember.
Have a great week

Rainy Day

It's a blue rainy day. The only good thing the rain will take away the snow. It's Sunday, a relaxing day of house work, laundry, drywalling the bathroom(still), and driving my daughter to her friends.
I saw this card in a Stampin' Up idea book. This is my favorite stamp to use for male cards. You can leave it uncolored, which looks great too.
I have to get busy doing invitations for the kids birthday party. Just haven't felt like card making this week. I've been reading Harry Potter. I have to keep on the books my daughter is reading. Just to make sure they are appropriate for her. When I went away I watched a movie on the plane. She had gotten the book from the school library. It became clear to me that they don't watch what books the kids are taking out, and making sure they are age appropriate.
Bye for now have a great rainy day

Another end to a week. It seems to go by so fast. I'm always so busy. Though things are better with the second car. I've done my cleaning job this morning, home in time for lunch. Vaccuumed the house. Had to run back into town for bread that I forgot this morning. (Need it for supper) Now its time to start supper, so I can eat and off to work for 5:30.

Here is another Father's Day card. This week end I have to make birthday invitations for both kids. They are sharing a pool party this year.

Have a great weekend

It's really nice to finally have two cars. No more rushing in the morning. I can take the time to blog before I'm off to work. Yesterday my daughter had violin. Usually I would drop her off, go get my husband from work, go back for her. Yesterday I asked my husband what I would do for a half hour while I waited for her. He said he would pick her up I could just go home. It's going to take a bit to get used to this. Freedom.

A couple of weeks ago I made a few father's day cards. This one uses a stamp from Stampin' Up that I'm very fond of.

Off to work now.
Have a great day

MP3 madness

Last night and this morning I've been trying to put music on my daughters MP3 player. She's had it for almost a year and not much music on it. It says its transferring but not showing up on player. I'm not that good with the computer, so it takes so long to do anything. Last night my husband showed me another way to do it. This morning she now has Hannah Montanna on 3 times. Hope she likes that one. ipods are so much easier.
This card is similar to another one I did. It's done with stickers. I got the idea from docrafts.
I'm off to work now. Have a great day.

Rest at last

Saturday afternoon and I'm finally done work for the weekend. Sunday, not much of a weekend. Tonight will be a nice night for a hot tub. Tomorrow hopefully we will be putting primer on the bathroom.
This morning on my way to work I dropped off the kids and husband at the garage to pick up our new car. Well new to us, used. A second car at last.
Today I have two cards I made for mother's day. The scalloped one is cut out using the nestables die cut. I love useing the cuddlebug.
Have a great weekend

Last Easter

Yesterday I took the kids swimming. Boy was it crowded. Today they have a snake display at the KIA dealership in town. They do it every march break. I'm hoping its still on after lunch, because I worked last night till 10 and just couldn't get up to take my husband to work so we could have the car.
This is the last easter card I have made for now. This week I have been working on Father's Day and Mother's Day cards for the sale.
Happy March Break

St Patrick's Day

I don't know what happened to my post the other day. But my write up is missing. It was there when I posted it. Today gone. Lets try today.
We're into the fifth day of March Break. My daughter has had the last two days with friends over. Thats it for the week. Today they have a dentist app., and we have to run into my work for a retirement celebration for a co-worker. A few errands around town, and then it will be time to pick up my husband.
I think this is one of my favorite cards so far. One I designed myself from a page map. I love the page maps, they are great to get you started.
At least I don't have to go to work tonight. The only night this week I'm off till Sat. But at least I get to be home with the kids during the day.

Keep smiling

March Break

Today is the first day of march break. A whole week with the kids home. It's started out with endless playing on the Wii, and the morning's not over.
Staying with Easter, here is another. I'm feelling pretty good about my easter cards. A few of them I did from a page map. This was one of them.
Have a great day.

This card has some cute chicks on it. I did them in flocking, so they are fuzzy.
Its the weekend for most people, but I'm one of the lucky ones that gets to work on Saturdays.

I spent the weekend making Easter cards. I have to stay ahead of things. Sometimes I cann't card for a few days.
I picked up Cardmaker Magazine last week. This card was in there. There were quite a few cards that I liked. Ones done on parchment paper. Painted and pierced. I would like to learn how to do, but it means buying new tools. Some day .
Have a great day.

Simple Birthday

Here is a simple birthday card. I had a request for one in purple and green. It turned out very well. It's spring looking. Which is something I'm looking forward to, with this mild weather and the snow starting to melt this weekend.
Have a great day.

Well Saturday is here. It's a day at home with the kids. My husband is off checking out a RC car race with a friend. Good news my sons knee is feeling better. He has ditched the crutches.
Here is a card I saw on Do-Crafts. I'm making Easter cards now. Just trying to stay ahead of things.

Missed work

Well I didn't even start work today and was called to get my son from school. He had hurt his knee at school before it even started. So after a trip to the doctors office to find out that no doctor was in till 5pm it was off to the hospital. After a three hour wait, we finally saw the doctor. He came home with crutches, and ended up going back to school for two hours.
Here is a card I found from the last batch of cards I made. Somehow I missed posting.

Home alone

It's hard to find something with sympathy on it, be it a stamp or stickers. I found this one from Stampin' Up. The flowers came with it too.
Today is my quite day. Home alone hasn't happened for a while. Last week my son decided he was sick, and had to stay home with me.
Have a great day

Just a note

All day yesterday I spent at a crop day. It was great just to sit there all day and actually acomplish something. I finished two pages from my vacation.

Here is a cute little card I made up to use as just a note. I left it blank inside so as I can write a little note in myself. I saw this type of card on Hunnybunny blog. I think its my favorite blog. She does alot of work with the cuttlebug.

I have a couple new cards to add this week. My dad got some birthday cards so I have to restock. Noticing I don't have many for men.

Have a great week.
