4th of July Card

Hi all, sorry I haven't been around. Still doing the school thing and trying my hardest to keep up. Who knew that on line classes would be so hard. I didn't, that's for sure!

It's so hot today, at 11:30am it was already 88 degrees, not sure how hot it is right now, but it has to be in the high 90's. I don't like the heat, it makes me feel like I'm melting. in fact after dinner tonight, Stefani and I are going to get an ice cream at Foster Freeze.... yummm i can taste it now ....

I was at one of my favorite stamp stores yesterday and bought some more glitter markers, i shouldn't have but I really wanted them. I have no self control .. hehehe

I was so excited that the Northern Cali Sizzlin Summer Paper Chase is coming up, not sure if any of you guys participated last year, but I loved it. Stefani and I went to 11 stores and did all our make and takes. I'm so excited for this year.

My lovely daughter Stefani make the card below, it was a make and take from the stamp store, she had a great time making it. I hope you all enjoy it!

Graduation Favors

Hi all, it's a beautiful day here in Northern California. I was up early this morning as i have so much homework to do. I haven't had much time to create anything or participate in any challenges, but one I get a handle on school and get myself into a routine, I'll be sure to scope out all the fun challenges. Thank you for sticking with me and visiting my little blog. I'm going to try and make time to create. Lords know i have so much to do and so many pictures ... hehehehe

So my friends son just graduated from high school and she wanted me to help her create a fun party favor. So below is what I came up with. it's kind of hard to see as I took the pic with my camera phone.

I was going to make the box with my cricut, but I didn't have time, so I bought the clear boxes at Wal Mart in the wedding section. I then used MS word to create the saying and printed it out on white cardstock. I then used a circle punch and wa la.... thus you have the boxed candy favors

Thank You Notes

Hey all, sorry I haven't been bloggin lately, I haven't had time, With Stefani's graduation and me looking for a job, going to EDD classes and summer school on line, it's been pretty hectic. I also got sick, actually, I thought I was having a heart attack, i finally went to the Dr's, had an EKG - and she told me it was stress. So thank God for that, but then my nephew got sick, the Dr's performed a spinal tap and didn't close it up correctly, they left a gaping hole in his spinal cord and it was leaking fluid into his body. Needless to say, he had to have surgery to close the hole. Thank Goodness he's ok.

Well enough about me and my problems, I have been working on some Thank you notes for all who attended Stefani's graduation. I had my own idea of what they should look like, but Stefani wanted them to be pink .... hehehehe ... Pink is her signature color! So with that said, here is what we came up with. Hope you enjoy and thanks for stoping by!
