Long Thursday

How are y'all this afternoon? I'm trying to get myself psyched up for baseball games 3 and 4 for this week.  They are back to back which means sitting at the ballpark from 5 to 10. I sure hope they are exciting games.  I really do love the games, it's just a long week.

Anyway, on with the program. I am going to show you some more Easter décor.

This is what's on my front door. Really simple, just 2 files from the Sil store.  But you can see it easily when you drive onto my driveway.

I think I'm going to take a nap so I can stay awake for the games. lol

Thanks for dropping by. Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

 Well, we made it through Monday! haha  And here we are at Tuesday. So why not post some Easter?

I have quite a bit. I'll space it out, my favorites first.

Today I'll show you my banner. I seem to like banners. (a lot) I love these colors.

Take a look:

The banner is a mix of files from the sil online store. The birdcage is a file from SVGCuts.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week is going well.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Not so happy Saturday

Surprise I have a new post. haha
This Saturday is a little bittersweet. This is the end of spring break for us. Monday back to the grind. ugh!

Oh, well only about 10 weeks left of school. And we do have Easter -I think we get Good Friday off also and Memorial Day. This year we don't have any bad weather days to make up.

Let's get on with this post, shall we?

I finally took pics of the Easter/spring projects I've been working on. I love the color palette for this time of year. The one time I get to use as much pink as I want. lol (my house has always been dominated by males) And I do use a lot of pink!

Leave it to Gabe to state the obvious. When he saw what I'd put out so far he just said - that's a lot of pink, Mimi! Then he grabbed a piece of candy wrapped like a carrot and went on his merry way.
So I guess I'll be "humored" this season. (you know, give the old girl a break, she's a girl!)

Anyway here's what I have to show you today:

The bunny is a file from SVGCuts (love it), birdhouse, berry basket and spiky houseplant are all sil store files. The pedestal is SVGCuts file also.

I'm entering this in a challenge at Cut It Up-Challenge # 67-anything but a card and use diecuts.
Also entering DoubleClick - AKA Abusybee Easter challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless.

Happy Thursday

Hi, everyone. This is my last St. Patty's Day décor post.

Due to unforeseen circumstances the Svgcuts  new file was released late. I only made a couple of the items because they wouldn't even be out for 2 weeks.

Easter is only 2 1/2 weeks after that and I need to get that stuff out. Now Easter can stay out all month because the isn't any other holiday to decorate for that month. (that I am aware of) lol

So I've been making quite a few things for Easter/Spring when it suddenly dawned on me. I haven't made a banner. Duh! So that is next on my list.

OK, here's the last of St. Pattys.

The beer stein from the new SVGCuts kit.

Stein and the pots of gold from the kit

Teepee shaped card from Sil online store
Thanks so much for stopping by.

A little more green

Good morning! Well, we made it through Monday. Yea! As Mondays go, this one wasn't that bad.
But now it's Tuesday, just 4 days to the weekend.

I actually spent most of yesterday crafting. Made the last of my St. Patty's décor. While I was waiting for the new SVGCuts kit, I started on Spring/Easter projects. I've got 2 more "green" posts then lots of spring.

This is what I have to show you today.

Thanks so much for spending a little time here.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Another week

Hello and happy Monday. Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was OK, just a little too busy.I did get to craft a little on Sunday. No photo yet.

Today I'm just going to show a couple of things from the sil online store.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Are we seeing green yet?

Good morning! I finally snapped some photos and loaded them. So now I have a project to post.

There aren't that many projects I want to make for St. Patty's Day, so I'm working on St. Pats, spring and Easter all at the same time. Gets a little confusing. So I will be posting a little more regularly.

Here is my leprechaun trap, The Gold Coin Inn. This was a free file from SVGCuts long before I got my cameo. I knew eventually I would have one so I just kept it till now.

Take a look:

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Happy Wednesday!

Good morning! It's 6 am here and I get Gabe up in 30 minutes. Just 3 more days till the weekend. YEA!!!

I have a short post for you today - another son's birthday card. His day was on the 11th. One of his favorite meals is smothered chicken and potato salad so I have to cook that for his b-day each year.

And like always, I forgot to take some pictures. DUH!!!

Anyway, here is his card.

This is a lever card from SVGCuts. Love making these. Mary's files always come out perfect.

Thanks for stopping by.

No school!

Happy Monday! No school, isn't that wonderful? I didn't get up till 6 am, yea!

Today I'm going to finish up posting my Valentine projects.

 . Gotta get my mind wrapped around St. Patty's Day and spring - then Easter. 
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday. Sorry for bombarding you with all these photos, but now they are done. lol

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Heart day

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day.
Hope it's all you wished for.
I'll be spending mine with lots of kids - basketball game then a 4 year olds birthday party at one of the bouncy places. What could be better?

Thanks for stopping by and have e fabulous weekend!

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Finally Friday

Is everyone glad it's Friday? I know I am.
We have another busy weekend  so I'm really glad there is no school on Monday so we can relax. Everyday this week I've had things that HAD to be done and they all involved leaving the house.
Having to leave the house is bad enough, but none of it involved crafts. Bummer.

Now I'm playing catchup - yesterday I got hubby's Valentine card made, last night I finished my great niece's birthday card (for Saturday afternoon) and today I have to do our great nephew's christening card for Sunday.
 I also have to get a Christening gift and get some shoes for me. I have been wearing my sneaks to church because of my knees. I can only walk in very stable shoes, any kind of heel kills my knees.

The most comfortable ones I could find are gray and pink. I really do not want to wear gray and pink shoes with a leopard print top. Can you picture how stunning that would be? lol

Anyway onto the reason for this post. I thought I would show you some Valentine décor, since it is tomorrow.

 Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Hump day

Good morning!!!  At least I'm hoping you are having one. The verdict is still out on mine. So far, so good.

I know it's been a while. Lets just say I've had issues and let it go at that. Hopefully I can get back in the groove.

I have seen a lot of your projects (that I could open) and they have been fantastic. So far today I've been able to comment.

So today I thought I would show you my oldest sons birthday card. (it was last Saturday) He lives in Florida and loves to be on the water.

I like the way this one turned out.
Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Tuesday

Hello! Back again, surprise.

To day I thought I'd show you my banner. I actually left my snowflake wreath up and just added the cupid. That wreath is a Jamie Cripps design from the sil store and I just love the airy feel of it so it stays till spring.

I might a pic or 2 of random cuts.

Thanks so much for dropping by. Hope you have a fabulous day.

Hugs and God bless, Stephanie

Monday, February 2, 2015

Yea! It's Monday!

See I'm optimistic. lol

I just want to thank my special bloggy friends for always making me feel good with their comments. I love hearing from you. They warm my heart. So thank you!

Now today I have a cute Valentine card to show you. This one is a Snapdragon Snippet design from the sil online store.. I loved this one.

Isn't it neat? It stands with 3 sides like a teepee.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great Monday.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Friday, January 30, 2015

Finally Friday!

No school tomorrow! Are you as glad for Friday as I am? Hope there is some crafting in my future this weekend.

This evening I thought I would show you a few files I got from the Sil online store.

Take a look:

Thanks for the visit. Hope you all have a great weekend.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Hello, again!

Good morning! How is your Thursday going?  One more day till Friday, yea!

I am having to learn 3rd grade math. Not kidding! They are using terms that make no sense to me at all. Array, Commutative Properties, Distributive Properties and so many others. I don't even want to think about next year. So I have homework, too. Oh, well. It is what it is.

Today I'm going to show you my chocolate covered strawberry and champagne bottle. I actually made the bottle for New Years but I never showed you and I wanted to keep it out. So I added some pink ribbon and hearts.

Works for me.

So there it is.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

In heart mode

Good afternoon. Finally I'm posting. Hope everyone is warm and safe.

I just left the room for what should have been 10 min. It has been over a half hour since I was typing. I seem to be so scattered. I have been doing a little crafting but some days I just can't concentrate and get it together.

I do have projects done and today I took photos. But what I want to show you are these cute little treat boxes. SVGCuts  put a new  free file in their gallery. It's so cute! I made 5 of them this morning just because.

 Aren't they cute? They are only about 2 1/2" x 1".

I will try to post some more  soon.

BTW, my new washer is working great. I just have one problem...the tub is so deep I can't reach the bottom of it. lol The newer ones take up less room but unfortunately they are deeper. But we adapt, don't we.? That's what being female means, isn't it? haha

Take care and see you soon.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

A little progress

Happy Monday, all. Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was very busy. Just not crafty busy.

Gabe decided to play baseball after telling us for 2 weeks he did not want to play this year.  So Saturday morning was the last time to sigh up. So I was at the ball park at 9am doing the paper work and paying.

When I got back home we went to Academy for cleats. We bought cleats, a new fielders glove, batting gloves and new sneaks for school. Then home we went.

We had to get ready for Cade's (11 yr. old gs) basketball game. They won! Then home again.

Next we got ready for church at 4pm. Finally got home at 5 to stay. No one felt very well.

Then Sunday  morning comes. It's nice to laze around drinking coffee and reading emails. (hubby played golf) A nice day. Hubby gets home about noon. Around 1pm we hear this horrible racket. It's my washing machine. I think it committed suicide.
My son had to buy one last weekend so we went to get one like his and there were none Would have to wait till Thursday to get one in. I don't know about you but I wash every day and no way could I wait for Thursday. So they found one in Sulphur, Louisiana (about an hour away). Hubby is on his way back with new machine. I made this card while he was gone. (bet you wondered where I was going with all this) lol

Anyway I had the little skates already made and I couldn't throw them away, could I? So I made the card.

So thanks for stopping by to see the card that I made for no reason.
Hope this is the beginning of a wonderful week.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Happy birthday Auntie

God morning!

Short post today. I have a card to show you for my aunt. Her birthday is just a couple of days away. It is another snowflake card. (I think it's the last one) ha

I'm kind of stuck. I tell myself I'm going to make something and then nothing happens. I want to do 3d but end up doing nothing. I need to get focused. Plus my hands hurt a lot less when I'm crafting.(You think that could all be in my head?) lol

Anyway here's the card:

It really is prettier in person. The center is a snowflake button.

Thanks for the visit.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Another Monday

Happy Monday, everyone. I don't know about you but getting back into the school routine is so hard for me.

Our weekend was cold and wet. It rained all day Sunday and not just little showers. We just stayed in.

Anyway the reason for this post. My besties birthday was yesterday.  Don't tell anyone but she turned 65. I think that is unbelievable In 6 months I will be 65, also. How did we get here?

So here's her card. I fixed her a treat bag with some goodies but didn't photograph it.

The cold weather seems to be getting to me. I feel a need to put snowflakes on everything.
Thanks for stopping by. Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Good evening. I hope your Friday was good. Here it was rainy, cold and nasty. 

Since I haven't really made much of anything, I'll just have to show you some more birthday cards.

It's been so cold a lot of my cards have snowflakes on them.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
