I got an award from my friend Liz

Hi Everyone....
I got an award from Liz over at Liz's Paper Loft.  Her and I started our blogs around the same time and she has just done a wonderful job with hers.  She is so talented and I'm just blessed to have the pleasure of knowing her.  I feel honored that she thought of me to give me an award.  Thank you my friend.
The rule is to tell you guys 8 things that you don't already know about me...
1.  I would love to live in Savannah, GA
2.  I love to coupon and have had some mini extreme coupon moments that I'm very proud of LOL
3.  Sometimes I won't answer the door when the doorbell rings...I don't know why
4.  I like to watch Mike & Molly, American Idol, Biggest Loser, Will & Grace, Young & Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful.
5.  I like to go to farmer's markets
6.  I was in hurricane Floyd and Dennis
7.  I put off buying a Gypsy because I didn't think it was worth buying & now I can't live without it.
8.  We paid cash for our 2 vehicles

Now I'm suppose to forward this award to 15 bloggers.

Have a great week!
Susan

Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge - Doodlecharms

Happy Rainy Sunday Everyone...
I have spent the majority of my day in my scrap room.  I worked on a project for an upcoming bloghop I'm in and I haven't done a lot of challenges lately so I decided to do Emma's Throwback Thursday challenge using the Doodlecharms cartridge and also incorporate blue.  This is what I came up with.  I hope you enjoy.
Have a great week!

Summertime Card

Hi All....
I made this card today for a couple of challenges I'm going to enter.  Paper Playtime challenge is to make a tall card.  My Pink Stamper's challenge was to use craft cardstock and Mary over at CardzTV's challenge was to use any kind of fruit.  I hope you like it.

Day 3 Three's A Charm Blog Hop

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!

Good Morning....
I had the most wonderful time with my mom yesterday.  I'm so blessed to still have my parents.  I'm also so blessed to be a mom.  I went to visit my mom and she had mentioned a few weeks ago how she needed some new sneakers and that she likes Keds so I was sneaky and found out her shoe size and bought her some Keds LOL.  Anyway...I made her this card.  Her favorite color is yellow.  She loved it.

Masculine Birthday Card

Hi Everyone...
I made this masculine birthday card for a swap I'm having with our design team (queenofmycraftroom.blogspot.com). It's soooo hard to come up with something masculine.  But I think the papers and the swirly's make it look pretty/masculine ;o)  Hope you like it.  Have a great day.
Susan
