August has flown by!

Happy Sunday again!  I can not believe there are only a few days of August left!  School has already started here in this neck of the woods and that means fall is just around the corner!  I love fall do not get me wrong but I really love summer and the warm weather!  This week was a crazy week here!  First we had an earthquake!  Wow is all I can say!  What a really really strange feeling!  Then Irene came by yesterday! She brought me lots of wind but very little rain.  I was just on the edge of the storm so it was not too bad.
The best news is my mojo returned and I created a few cards!  Today I am featuring one of the cards I made earlier in the week.  A simple card I threw together by taking plain flowers turned them two different shades of orange using my Glimmer Mist Sprays.  I also used the orange Glimmer Mist on the stripe of paper on the left side of the card.  I also stamped the background paper making my own DP. I am so excited to get back into my craft room and come out with something new! I also received my new Papertrey goodies and will post those cards later this week.  I am loving my new dies and stamps! Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you are all well!

Summer Fun

Happy Sunday!  I can not believe that it is almost the middle of August!  Summer seems to fly by faster and faster as I grow older!!  I was gone last weekend so this weekend I planned a low key weekend consisting of being home and hanging out.  I was suppose to go and hang with some friends by the pool when the weather decided not to agree.  We had rain which we really needed and when it finally finished it was late in the afternoon so I headed to Church and hung at home.  I did get in my craft room and played around.  I made this card for a friend I love being able to sit down and use what is on my desk.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

August First

Today I am posting my Papertrey Inkers Challenge.  I choose August and it is finally here!

Happy August first!  The summer is flying by!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful time!  My challenge for this month is for you to take a Papertrey Stamp Set and create your own designer paper. Then make a card using the paper you created.  Here is my card.   I used Shape by Design to make my paper and my sentiment came from Handwritten Notes.  I used CTMH ink for the stamping.  I stamped my saying on a piece of clear in stazon then put a piece of velum under it.  I used brads in the corners to hide the glue dots.  My base is Enchanted Evening paper by Papertrey.  I am happy with the out come!  Looking forwards to seeing what everyone comes up with!
