Peace and Comfort

Good evening!  Hopefully everyone has had a good week and ready for the weekend.  I know I am!  It's been a long slow week at work, ugh.  I'm liking the burst of warm weather we've had here in Indiana this week.  Unfortunately, I think tomorrow will be the end of it :(

Well I made this card with the intentions of linking it to the JustRite blog for this weeks challenge, but I didn't get it uploaded in time.

One Wonderful Life

Well, I bet you thought I fell off the face of the earth ;)  I've recently become a "working" mother of 3 now and have had to get myself used to that again.  Then with the start of a new school year, we've been busy getting ready and off to school.  It was a bear trying to get them back on a "normal" sleeping pattern again, lol!  They like to stay up late (real late) during their summer break. 
Although, I haven't made much time for cardmaking :(  I managed to whip up a wedding card last Saturday, at the last minute, for a friend.  It's kind of simple, but I like how it turned out.  Hope you do too!
I'm hoping, I will get my mojo back real soon.  I need to make use of all the new supplies I've been buying and hoarding, hee!hee!

Stamps:  JustRite-Romantic Sentiments
Ink:  Memento-Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  Bazzill (black glitter) and Copic quality white

I don't know about you all, but I am so ready for some warm and sunny weather to come and "stay". Here in Indiana, the weather has been so unpredictable lately. It's warm one day and rainy chilly the next. Argh!

JustRite Prince Charming

Hello, I'm still here! Sorry I've been neglecting my blog lately, but I have been crazy busy. I have been getting some cards made though, just haven't made the time to get them photographed, uploaded, edited, and posted. Again, bad :(
While at a NSD crop I attended at the church, I made some more cards. I decided ahead of time that I was just taking card making supplies. I didn't do any scrapbooking, although I should have, as I am getting "really" behind on those. I took mostly my JustRite stamps with me, along with my nesties.
This weeks JustRite challenge is a sketch and the challenge is being sponsored by Stamper's Dream. What a great sketch! Here is my sample:

Stamps: JustRite-Baby Ensemble
Ink: Versamagic-Gingerbread and Thatched Straw
Cardstock: Stampin' Up and CM
DP: Cosmo Cricket-Jack's World
Accessories: Labels Nine and Classic Ovals Lrg. Nesties, EK border punch, and Heidi Swapp edge distresser

Hope everyone is having a good day. So, we had my son's band fitting and have him signed up and ready for band next year. Going into the meeting, he was interested in the Oboe or French Horn, but decided on the Trumpet :) I think he made a good choice. Now, I will have to invest in some ear plugs, lol!
I also wanted to share one of the cards I made last weekend, at my retreat. Hope you like it!

Hello! I had an eventful weekend. When I got home from my annual scrapbooking retreat, I was soooo tired, I went straight to bed. I so needed that rest since I stayed up late over the weekend every night. We had a great time, though. This morning, I became a great Aunt, for the second time. He is adorable!
Well, onto my card. This is my entry for Mercy's sketch challenge. I hope I get it in on time!

Even though I've been missing from blogland, I have managed to get some cards made, now and then. When my local scrapbook store shut down, some of the ladies formed a card swap, just a way of keeping in touch with each other. I've been making cards for that, but haven't made time to upload and post them. Oooops, maybe I will do that soon :)

2sketches4you's prize for their challenge this week, is some of the new releases from JustRite. I love their products, some of my faves! Below is my entry for that challenge:


Stamp: JustRite Romantic Sentiments

Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa

Cardstock: Bazzill

DP: Basic Grey-Bittersweet

Accessories: Classic Heart and Classic Circle Nesties, Quickutz Label (HL exclusive) and Renaissance Hearts Borderabilities

Well, since I had my crafty stuff already out and scattered about, lol! I decided to use some of that Basic Grey DP and make a little card for this weeks, Mojo Monday challenge. This week, you had the choice to use the round or square sketch (or both). I chose the round:


Stamp: Stampabilities

Ink: VersaMagic-Red Magic

Cardstock: Bazzill and GP

DP: Basic Grey-Bittersweet

Accessories: Petite Scalloped Circle nesties and buttons
