Pause Dream Enjoy 52 Tags - Footprints

Hello Everyone...
Today was 105 here in Indiana.  Wow!  I can do without that kind of weather.  One of my neighbors was saying that he saw mulch just ignite right in fron of him yesterday and we've been having a lot of interstate fires.  Not sure if it's from cigarette butts being thrown out or what...but we sure are praying for rain.
So...this weeks challenge on the PDE design team we were to make a project and incorporate footprints.  The question is...who has left footprints on your heart.  I usually just journal on the back of my tags but if I were to answer that question it would be my beautiful granddaughter, Emily.  There is nothing better than to hear her say "grandma...come here".  What a precious angel she is.
Here is my tag for this week.  I hope you enjoy and play along in our challenge.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend and stay cool.

CardzTV Challenge #11 "Anything Goes" Day 3

Hi Everyone....
Happy Sunday.  This is the last day of CardzTV Challenge #11 "Anything Goes".  Hopefully you'll head over to Mary's blog and enter to win a set of her CardzTV stamp sets (winner's choice).  She  has been doing a Hello Kitty card series and once I watched one of them...I had to try out her technique.  This cartridge has sat on my shelf for probably 2 years because I had the hardest time trying to figure out how to piece them together.  Head over to her blog and check it out.  Here is my Hello Kitty card.  Have a great weekend.

Pause Dream Enjoy 52 Tags - Main Color Yellow

Hi Everyone...
Seems like I've been posting like crazy this week.  I'm enjoying it.  I'm heading to my hometown of big ole New Castle, IN tomorrow (I'm being sarcastic) to see my dad for Father's Day.  I feel so blessed to still have my parents.  My dad is 86 and my mom is 78.  I talk to my mom several times a day.  It's so funny...I'll call and if my dad answers he'll talk to me for a few minutes and then he'll say "want me to get your mother?" LOL. 
Ok...not sure where all that came from LOL.  So anyway...this week on Pause Dream Enjoy's weekly challenge we were to make a project with the main color being yellow.  I am so enjoying being on this design team.  Every week I make tags and I journal about the past weeks events.  I'm going to enjoy looking back on them in a year.  Here's my tag.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

CardzTV Part 2 "For The Birds"

Good Morning Everybody...
This card was made by playing around and "something cute" happened by accident LOL.  Notice these stamps are the same ones used on my last project?!  Well, I had put them on the same stamping block while I was cleaning them but decided to get the excess ink off first and when I saw them on paper...I thought it was adorable...so I made this card.  My only bummer is that the Glossy Accents on the left eye looks like  there was bubbles :( Oh well...I still like it.  Have a wonderful day.
Paper Studio - Farm Fresh Country (background mat)
Echo Park - For the Record
Elegant Edges - Pg. 21 (border feature) I forgot the size.
Peachy Keen Stamps - Critter Faces Set A - Med (PK754)
Twine & Brads

Hello Everyone...
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.  Over the weekend I made this card and I really like the way it turned out.  The bright, rich colors on a black background is dramatic.  I'll probably be doing more like it.  I hope you enjoy.  Have a wonderful rest of the week.

CardzTV Challenge # 10 "My Guy"

Hello Everyone....
Welcome to CardzTV challenge #10.  The theme for this challenge is called "My Guy".  Create a card, gift or craft project for a masculine birthday or Father's Day and post it at cardztv.blogspot.com for a chance to win a set of CardzTV stamps - winner's choice.
I made this card using the "It's A Guy Thing" stamp set.  It's difficult for me to make masculine projects.  I always want to include ribbon, flowers or anything girly LOL.  If you find the right cartridge and pair it up with the perfect, masculine stamp set, it's easy.  The first card is my new project and then I'm adding some cards that have already been seen on my blog...but I want to show you all the different projects I came up with using this one stamp set.  Have a wonderful weekend.



Pause Dream Enjoy 52 Tags - Beach Theme

Hi Everyone....
How is everybody doing?  So far my summer is great.  I had so much fun doing this tag.  I love the beach.  We use to live in Goldsboro, NC while my husband was stationed at Seymour Johnson AF base.  We only lived a little over an hour drive to Atlantic beach.  I just loved it.  This weeks tag is a beach theme.  Have a great weekend.

Pause Dream Enjoy 52 Tags - Favorite Quote or Verse

Hi Everyone....
This week on Pause Dream Enjoy's 52 tags in a year challenge we were to make a project with our favorite quote or verse on it.  This verse has gotten me through some rough times.  This quote has comforted me more than I can say.  It's a little plain...but I love the way it turned out and don't think this verse needs a lot of extra.  It's beautiful by itself.
