Smile

Hi Everyone

100 lashes with a wet noodle for me for being gone so long. I am really sorry about my absence. I have no good reason, and I do thank all of you for not abandoning me.

Did everyone have a great Thanksgiving. I know I certainly did. We went to a friend’s house (that I met at church- woo hoo)  and spent the day with her and her family. We just sat around and ate good food and talked about all the nothings in the world.

Today’s cards I cased from Connie Stewart. She has a video showing you how to make 4 cards with 3 pieces of paper (2 neutral and 2 half sheets of color). Isn’t that awesome. She is a wonderful lady and has such enthusiasm. You can see her cards and video here. Here’s my take on her cards.

Christmas Wishes

Hi Everyone

Wow – today is a good day. I played in my craft room aaaallll day. Only thing is my brain refused to be creative. I was only able to make two cards. I will post one today and I will post the other one tomorrow. Since I will be going to church tomorrow, I might not have time to play.  This card is form Pals Paper Arts PPA169. For some reason this is the one that stumped me the most.

Your Kindness

Hi Everyone

Do you guys remember that migraine I had the other day. It came back yesterday – yuck, so I am having another day of recuperating from them.

Alrighty on a positive note – today’s card…… Woo Hoo

This card is for Paper Craft Crew Challenge #53.

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #53

I do say the card looks much better in person than in the picture. The picture does not do it justice at all. The flowers in the background are stamped in Blushing Bride to match the chevron ribbon. In the picture the flowers look like Calypso Coral to match the card stock,  So in the picture the chevron ribbon looks like it doesn’t match anything and sticks out like a sore thumb. Not only that, the clay flower is painted with Blushing Bride and looks like Calypso Coral in the picture. You guys pop me an email (cynthia.hawkins999@gmail.com) or leave me a comment letting me know if you agree with me about the chevron ribbon and  clay flower. The Pearl Jewels are colored in pink sharpie, then orange sharpie, and again in pink sharpie – I think they look like Calypso  Coral in the picture. You know – they are supposed to look like Calypso Coral. hehe

Hi Everyone

Woo hoo, my card challenge from yesterday uploaded correctly. I am really excited about that. If you missed my very first card challenge you can see it here. It is card #18. I am sooo excited about it and I didn’t have any trouble at all uploading it.

With that being said. I am doing my 2nd challenge today. Now I understand when people say this sketch was tricky, or I had to really think about this one or this one took several tries but I finally came up with a card I’m happy with. Well, this being my 2nd card challenge – guess what? I found this one to be a challenge for me trying to come up with papers that I thought would go together and the embellishments. On the other hand, I am finding challenges to be fun. I have found another one for tomorrow. Woo hoo.

Ok, today’s challenge is from Freshly Made Sketches #95. This is the sketch FMS95:
