Hello blogging world!  I'm hanging with my girlfriends at a crop tonight and finally made a card with this weeks MFT Sketch!  
I made this card for my youngest daughter teacher.  The stamps are a mix of MFT 's Document It - School Days, a Mint Motif stamp set that I can't seem to find the name of.  All cardstock is MFT - Ripe Raspberry, Blueberry and Sweet Tooth.

Wedding Cards

Wedding cards I made this week.  First original card I've made in a long time.  

I used their wedding colors and went with a simple design.

This is my first post done entirely from my phone...we'll see how it goes.

Yay for the start of school tomorrow.

Valentine Box

You know when your kid asks you to do something, you just do it most of the time.  So, when my little one came home from school on Thursday and said she needed a "rectangular prism valentine box" I whipped this up over the weekend - she helped find the right container, picked the colours and the ribbons she wanted used.
And honestly, I was happy to do it.  It was fun to just create something knowing that she would love it because it was pink and girly and ribbon and hearts.   I broke out my MFT die-namics and scavenged through the ribbon stash and used up lots of washi tape.

And then she came home from school today with the following message:  "The children were asked to bring a rectangular prism to school for a "M-art' (math/art) project for Valentines.  Dalainee will need to bring an undecorated rectangular prism to class before Thursday"  At least I had fun!  :)

Something Crafty!

Thank you everyone who responded to my last message.  You have no idea how good it feels to blog again.  I can't guarantee that every post will have something crafty...but that's life. 
So...last week I managed to get a card made using this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  This one was for my cousin's daughter who's birthday party was on Saturday.  I like how it came together, and will be making a couple of these (without the number of course) to keep in my stash for future birthday parties my kids are invited to.
Lately, I've been doing a lot of soul searching, a lot of "what are people going to remember about me" kind of thinking.  I think I'm ready to start doing some goal setting and future planning.  I'm excited to put it all together and then show you all what I've come up with. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Is anybody still out there?


Just wondering if there is anyone still out there.  I'm around. Life is changing...always.  I'm learning, and growing, and snuggling under my blankets because its so darned cold.  I finally made it into my craft room.  Let me know if you're still out there....

I just decided...

I just this very minute, while looking at other's blogs, that I am going to do all 52 MFT Wednesday Sketch Club sketches this year.  That means 2 a week at this point until I'm caught up.  I like a good challenge..and I've been in my craft room a bit more lately.  Mostly just scrap-lifting stuff, but I think I'm ready to get my mojo flowing and do some of my own creating.  Yay, I'm excited about this now.  Anyone want to join me in this pursuit?
