Happy Thursday

Good morning.  The weekend is getting closer, yea!

We have 2 scheduled ballgames left to play this week. The Tuesday night game was cancelled because the field was too wet, so that one will have to be made up.

Today I hope to make something - not just single, simple files. Still hoping to get my hands working nicely again.

I have a couple of files to show you today. They were made 2 - 3 weeks ago.

Both of these are from SVGCuts.
The hot air balloon is from the High Skies file and the lever card is from the Peony Cottage file. (I love that sun)

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

YEA! It's Monday!

See, still trying to think positive. haha

Yesterday I finally got my Easter wreath off my door. I replaced it with a peony wreath. (a file from the sil online store.)

It took a while to finish it because I did not like it once I got it started. Still not sure how much I like it but I "had" to finish. With certain things my OCD kicks in big time.( Like if I break a nail, I "have" to file all the others down even so they match.) I used 13 12 x 12 sheets of paper to cut this out. I so wanted to just throw it away but I couldn't. How could I waste 13 sheets of paper on purpose? That ever happen to you

So here it is:

                                          Without flash.

Happy Saturday

Hello! I slept in this morning - 5:30 am - yippee!

Well, it's raining. Yesterday "they" said the rain would be gone early - by the time most people got up. (yeah right) I just hope our make-up ball game doesn't get cancelled.

Just a short post today. Have to fix breakfast and get things done so I can go to the baby shower then rush home for the game.

As usual there was a list of places where she had picked things out. The closest to me is Target so that's where I went.  It printed out 1 page with 5 things on it and one of them was $400.00. That's out of my range so my DIL and I chose the Amazon gift card. We were also supposed to bring a book in lieu of a card. So I used the card as a tag.

Take a look:

Well, that's it for today. Have a great weekend.

Hugs and God bless.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.

Hugs and God bless.

Happy Thursday

Hello again.

I'm back to show you a card today. One of my favorite nieces has an anniversary on Friday and this is her card.

A few years ago they had a palapa built in their back yard. I had never heard of that before. It's  a structure with a thatched roof. Theirs is really nice and great for parties.

Anyway, when I saw this file I knew it would be perfect.

Take a look:

See you again tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless.

Wow! It's been 2 weeks

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted. It's not because I've been so busy creating. Until this week it's been only random files from the sil online store. Just cutting things because I liked them.

Now I'm trying to replace Easter with more spring. Then lead into summer.
So I did replace my banner. Hubby said it was time to replace Easter with something spring. Enough of Easter. Of course I haven't exactly been with it. I usually change things within 24 hours of a holiday/season change. I just wasn't prepared this time.

So here is my simple banner.

I kept the birdcage (because I like it). I also repurposed the birdhouses.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciate it.

Hugs and God bless.

Yea, it's Monday! (did you believe that happy statement?) I'm trying real hard to be positive.

So how is your Monday going?

I have one last post with some random Easter cuts. Then it's more spring into summer things. I get to cut and glue for fun - no pressure.

So let's get Easter finished, shall we?

The 3 money envelope tags were on the Grandson's baskets. This is from the sil store. Very easy and very handy.

These little boxes, I did not use. Probably next year. I just liked them. I loved the greenery on the triangle carrot boxes. I thought it would be easy to adapt for bushes on 3d houses.

Just thought I would show a pic of my 3  best reasons to get up every day. I so love these boys.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Yea, it's Thursday, and Friday (Good Friday) is a holiday!  Of course tonight we have 2 ball games so it will be a late night. But that's ok, no school Friday.

Hope you are having a good week. I'm going to show you some more Easter. Can you stand it?

Happy Wednesday

So how has your week been so far? Hope you are getting more crafting done than I am. Mostly what I've done is random Easter files from sil store and random free files. Seems like weeks since I've done a real project. I'm talking new 3d project from SVGCuts. On Mar. 18th they announced they were working on a new kit but that's been 2 weeks. They used to give us little sneaks to whet our appetite, now we just wait. (I've never been known for my patience) lol

So today I have some things to show you. Just files I happened to like.

I'll show a few  more  tomorrow. (actually all of these files are SVGCuts, very simple ones) Our 45th anniversary is Saturday so I have a card ready to post

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great rest of the week.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
