Little Girl

Good Morning,

This is my last post as part of the design team for Cardabilities. Our sponsor this time is Robin's Fetish Digital Stamps . The name of the image is my spring garden.

The black and pink polka dot paper is printed from the Cricut cartridge. The black border around the girl has a pink gem to coordinate with the polka dot paper.
Stop over to cardabilities to check out the rest of the design team and you can upload your card to have a chance for this weeks prize offered from Robin's Fetish stamps.

Must wrap of this post as I seem to keep losing the image....don't know what key I'm hitting to make the image disappear. ugh!

Tried to upload some of my photos but couldn't get them uploaded either, ugh!

Have a great day.

Engagement Card

Good Morning,

Well I made it from Ontario to New Brunswick. Spending time with Xavier and Adam now. Xavier and I did parks and baked cookies yesterday. I have pictures but can't get them uploaded at the moment.

Today I'll share an engagement card that I made. It's been a while since I put it together but the pattern paper and the flower was printed and cut  with the Imagine Cricut. The engagement ring cut from Wedding Cartridge and I think Elegant Edges cartridge for the two blue pieces behind the flower. Tied a bow around the ring.

I will have a post tomorrow as it is my last post for Card-a-bilities design team.

See you then.

Having a great time in Toronto. Kristen and I will be heading out early Saturday morning to compete in the City Chase. We are pumped for the event.

This is a frame I made for Kristen and Joel before I left home. Wooden frame is from Michaels. Covered in pattern paper from Hobby Lobby, sanded and distressed with Tim Holtz inks(either Linen or Old Paper).
The words and flourishes cut from Wall Decor. First cut using Tim Holtz grunge paper and then cut from matching pattern paper.
The flower in the corner cut from the Wedding cartridge at 2" (3 times) and 1.7" (3 times).
Can't loiter as I need my sleep for tomorrows big event. lol
Hope to see you soon.


PS I'm really challenged on laptop computers...the cursor is never where I want it....seems to have a mind of it's own.

I Whaley Love You

Good Morning,

Well I know I'm not very reliable on posting these days. Vacation has been taking up all my time.

Had a great trip to Wyoming...after a nightmare of botched airplane plans.

8:00 the night before I leave United Airlines leaves me a message saying my 6:00 a.m. flight to Salt Lake City has been cancelled and they've rebooked me a day later. After an hour and a half I get them to book be on a Delta flight for 7:00 a.m. Perfect and it is non-stop. Arrive at the airport plenty of time only to have Delta reject me. I couldn't get a boarding pass cause my middle initial showed up on one piece of documentation and not the other. Even though I had my passport they wouldn't let me on. I have to go to United to straighten it out. By this time I've missed my flight. Go to a different terminal and talk to United. They now get me on a 1:00 flight to arrive around 4:30 but I  have a connector in Denver. About noon it shows my flight is delayed an hour. Now I won't make my connector in Denver. (Can you see steam coming out my ears?) Finally get to Denver and get a 5:30 flight to Salt Lake. Arrive about 7:30. Only ten hours later than planned. So much for first day of vacation. Good thing it got better. lol

See end of post about my next adventure.

After all that I do have a card to share today....all the images were printed with my cricut and layered with dimensionals.

Blue background cuttlebugged and sanded to look like bubbles.Added some buttons with embroidery floss.

I'm now getting ready to fly to Toronto to see Kristen and Joel for a few days. While there I'll be participating in the City Chase. We're still working on a team name so if you have any suggestions you can leave a comment. We plan on taking lots of photos and I will post some of those after the big race...if I survive. lol

Have a great Monday!

Eva 3.0 & Challenge

Good Morning,

I'm entering this card over at Birthday Sundaes Challenger #12.

Only criteria this time is it has to be a birthday card.

Pattern paper Costco and solid cardstock Stampin' Up.

The filigree background is from Cartridge Cindy Loo. I resized it from a square to a rectangle.

The image is digital download from Robins Fetish Digital Stamps. Colored with Copics.

Sentiment image from Just-Rite Stamps.

This is "Eva" 3.0

We were out riding together again this morning. She's really quite cute.
There are a lot of squirrels on the bike trails and I'm sure it's just a matter of time before I run into one.
Yesterday I thought one squirrell was either playing chicken with me or was suicidal but he was running down the path straight at me. lol

I have a couple mile ride on a major highway before I get to the bike trails but it is really nice once I get there. I rode for a couple of hours yesterday. I'm not exactly sure where all the trails run so it's kind of a challenge to see where you are going to come out at and how you're going to loop around to return home. DH  has suggested a GPS.

Hope you have a good week planned.

Mojo Monday 193

Good Afternoon,

I'm trying to get this in under the wire for Mojo Monday #193.

Here's the sketch....

All paper is printed with the Imagine except for the blue base. The cartridge is Imagine More Cards.

The sketch you're using different patterns around the main image. I choose to change the shape to a heart for a differnt take on it.

Pearls to accent the corner angles. A little dazzling diamond glitter for a bit of sparkle.

I'll be back tomorrow with an update from my week-end and let you know how "Eva" and I have been doing.

If you're here to read about my personal coming and going you'll want to skip to the end of the post.

The pattern cardstock is from Fancy Pants Designs - Rough and Tough

Elegant Edges for the background scallops - 10"

Best Friends Imagine cartridge 5"

Create A Critter - font 2.25" - arrows also from this cartridge. Sizes vary.

Banner - Yummy cartridge 1" blue & .8 pattern

Most paper was distressed with Tim Holtz Pumice ink.

Micropen for the stitching.

Time is flying by. June already. The big scrapbook convention is going on now in Arlington, TX. I went last year and it was awesome. I did plan on going this year but I've decided to stay home as "Eva" moved in last night and I though I should stay home and keep her company. Eva's costs ate up my crafting budget for the month. lol

Wondering who "Eva" is???? All I'll tell you today is "Eva" and I were getting to know each other this morning out on the trails.

Hmmmm.....not pictures yet so I'll keep you in suspense.
You can leave a comment is you care to guess......he he
