A little Graduation Post

school colors and Green and Black and her favorite color is yellow

Good evening All; today my oldest daughter Brianna and her friend went to their friend's graduation , She was so excited about being able to go, (only a few tickets to go around). I told her I wanted her to enjoy it and to see it as what she is working so hard for and what is her goal for next year. We have been playing around with a great new product from Michael's (new to me!!). It's spray paint for fabric, it's not in a spray can or has a strong fumes as that. Just  paint in a  spray bottle and so Easy to use. It is in the Girly Isle where they have the American Girl crafting supplies. We made her friend a shirt, and after hers came out really cute, they decided they wanted to make their own with their class of 2011 ( I can't believe my daughter will be graduating from High School next year huh!!!!!!

I got to use my cricut again, to cut out all the letters and the images to go with it.. Love Love my cricut. I used Everyday paper doll, Black letters and Home decor. added some bling.
 Ohhh I almost forgot.. look at my stamp, my first try and attempt at "layering and altering my digis  :0)( Cute graduation images were two images from Birds Cards. and I added the 2010... I was so happy when I did it. funny thing is if u where to ask me I could not explain right now.. But I won't stop practicing now!!!

The theme was Vintage, still not too comfortable with doing different style of cards.. BUT have pretty much let go and just wanted to try my interpretation of what that means. so please check out Ms. Sandy in her "yellow polka dot bikini"

I colored her bikini with my prisma pencils and brown marker to make her  "yellow polka dot bikini"., I ran the bottom half of my card thur my cuttlebug and swiss dot folder ( to make sand) I then sponged it with my Tim Holtz distress ink (Vintage Photo) and then sponged all around the card. Again getting to Know my cricut machine and cartridges again. I used EDPD and Stretch Ur Imagination" to cut out all the little beach back drops. ( I really love those PALM TREE!!

A Helping Hand

Happy Friday; I have to say that the week has just blown by soo fast. It was Just Monday yesterday :-) I could not wait to share my card that I just finished. As many of  you may already know that Jen Shults of WFP and a few other blogs are helping the "flood victims of the floods in Nashville with the proceeds from a stamp set created just for that. So I thought it was so great to be able to donate and get a Gorgeous stamp set at the same time.. I love love it and I want to say Thanks to all the Ladies that help with getting this together.

Her is my card ,I used my lovely lady caring her boxes and the sentiment is also a part of the set. I had the best time making this card.. I knew that I wanted to use her because she is great for "paper piecing" and that is just what I did, I paper pieced her out fit, headband and boxes. ( AND yes I think my bow is a little "Large" but...... I will get better .. LOL

Good Afternoon; I am truly enjoying my late afternoon early evening here in my neck of the woods. I have dinner on the stove, my DH is enjoying having the TV to him self and my kidos are doing there own thing.

Wanted to share this cute cute Boy card. I made I think this is only my 2nd one that I have done. I have had this paper pack from the dollar bend from Target for a few months now and did not now when or how I was going to use it.. And then I saw the challenge over at "C4C and their theme was of course a Boy Card. I am also trying to do much more with my "cricut" so I used that to cut out the little Dog House. My Digi Stamp is a freebie from Victoria Case that I have had for over 6 months, I colored him when as a practice with my Prisma so he is Recycled.

I hope every one is enjoying their Saturday afternoon. looking back it has been about 2 weeks since my last post.. Dealing with some Family and Personal issues.. Some time for my self It takes a while for me to snap out of my "funk" (as my mom would say) Belive me I have tried several time to clear my mind with doing what I love most which is my "crafting" but i does not always work out.

A day or to ago my Daughter wanted me to make a birthday card for her friend.. She stated that she had already promised her a card from me, So I could not dissapoint her and so I did. and one card actually turned in to 3 cards.

My first card is an entry for this week's Mojo Moday skectch challenge # 137. I got these really beautiful  DP from K & Co that where on sale for 20 cents per sheet at Michaels I knew that I had to use it. My stamp was a set that I bought from Ebay.
