Another Beautiful Day

We spent yesterday taking a little trip into Mesa.  We took our first little visit into an IKEA store -'s a huge building with a lot of furniture, storage units, food, linens, and much more.  I did get some ideas on how to make something to use in my crafting space in the RV.  We even had lunch at their diner.  Good food, good need to check it out sometime.  We also had to pick up some stuff at Camping World, checked out the huge Fry's Electronics store, and stopped at Marie Callendars to pick up a pie to bring home.  yum yum.
I got up this morning and made Belgian Waffles, (and not from a mix) in our new waffle maker....they come out nice and fluffy.  Put some strawberries on top with a side of sausage links and had a great start to the day.

I did manage to make this card last night.  Will put in my stash for someone's birthday :-)
All the papers, and supplies are from Club Scrap Common Thread's Kit.  I hope you enjoy.

Good Morning

The sun is shining and the wind seems to have died down.  We are also suppose to start having "normal" temps again for this part of Arizona, but it got down pretty chilly last night.  We actually started up the furnace this morning.

I did finish up 2 more cards last night and thought I'd share.  Both cards have the same embellishment - all papers, and stamps from Club Scrap.  I did use the Petal Pretties technique on the flower on the blue card.  This technique and many more great techniques can be found on Technique Junkies website. 

I hope you all have a great day.  I hope to be able to post some new book projects soon.

What a Week

I haven't had much time to update this week with my work schedule.  We did take in a Sprint Car Race in Tucson on Saturday night and I spent a good part of Sunday working on some cards.  I'm attaching the card that I made previously and didn't share, but my brother did get the card and loved it.  I did a birthday card for my 3 yr old Granddaughter - she's a sweetie :-), and finished making 5 Tree cards for a swap that I'm in.  I'm off work now for the next week and plan to get some more "all purpose" cards made, start on my Christmas cards and work on putting pics in a reallyl neat Paper Bag Book that I made last week.  I'll update as soon as I get some more projects done.

The cold front that is coming through the country this week really changed our got cool and very windy and here in the desert wind=lots of dust, and dust doesn't agree with my sinuses.  I'll be glad when this front is over.

This is the front and the inside of the Tree Card I made for a swap.  All of the papers and stamps are from Club Scrap.  The quote on the inside of the card is one that I found on Quote Gardens

Next is the Birthday Card I made for my Brother.  The paper and all the stamps, except the motorcycle are also from Club Scrap  and the motorcycle stamp is from Stampin Up.

And now the Birthday card for my little Granddaughter.  All of the papers are from Club Scrap and the embellishments were stamped, colored and cut out (I felt like I was back in Kindergarten) and taped with pop-up dots to add dimension.  Cheryl Ann - I hope you enjoy this card.

I hope to get my photo bag album filled with pics tomorrow, and maybe even get more cards completed.

Hope you all have a great day.
