Where have I been you ask?
We lost Internet service Tuesday evening, and have been working with the Internet provider to get things resolved, but still nothing.
So how am I posting this, you ask? I am sitting in my beach chair in my front yard, connected to my neighbor's network....crazy!
Hoping to be back by early next week with some really exciting things to share! A huge box of stamps and supplies arrived last week and I haven't had the chance to play with them yet, so I hope to have a few new things to post.
Hope y'all are having a great kids go back to school in 3 weeks, which should allow me to really have some time to myself to stamp and craft. It feels like I haven't been able to do much this summer, but I guess that's the price to pay for spending time with my kids!!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day.

A CAS Bling Challenge

SHHHHHH! Don't tell anyone!
I'm supposed to be cleaning the craft room.
But I couldn't resist making this card when the idea came popping into my head.
Gonna make this a real short post so I can get back to work!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

A Button Challenge: EBTKS #20

I had the chance to make a couple of cards yesterday, and this was one of them. I absolutely love using buttons on cards, so this was a super fun challenge for me. It was fun too, because I got to use a stamp set that has not seen ink yet, which is always good!
I have a real itch to craft today, but so far I have forced myself to work on my craft space. I know y'all are probable sick of me talking about what a mess I have and what a task it has been so far and will continue to be for some time. With the baby, I only have time to do a little here and there. What I really need is an entire day! Even though I still have a ways to go, it feels so good to clean everything out. My hopes are that with fewer things, I will use what I have, more. Does that make sense?

Kellan is sleeping right now, he didn't have a very good night last night, so I'm hoping to get a couple hours out of him, so hopefully I can get a good amount accomplished and then reward myself with making a few cards!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

A Moxie Fab Clean & Graphic Challenge

Happy Monday all!
I cannot believe it is August already! Wow! It has been a little while since I have made a card. So much is going on,and my craft room is still in complete chaos. It is such slow going trying to to go through every little piece of everything, and find new homes for things and decide what to keep and what to give away! I think I've only gotten through like maybe 5 % of my stuff!

We took the kids and got out of town for a bit last week, which was so nice and much needed! And now we are back and I'm wanting to get a few cards made for a few different challenges. We'll see if that happens!

Here is the card I made for the Clean & Graphic Moxie Fab Challenge....I wanted to submit a card for each of the four categories, and this is my third one......the only one I have not completed my card for is the Classy & Elegant category......since my craft room is a catastrophe, I have not been able to find the exact ribbon I wanted to if I want to get my card in, I think I might have to use something else....we shall see!!! I digress.
I loved the card by Heidi Van Laar which used squares and rectangles which had some of the corners rounded to create a really awesome pattern, so I used that to an extent with the black card stock on my card!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
