Cuttlebug card using CTMH cardstock- can't remember where the brad or flower are from. It was fun & fast to make.

Today is the last day of October.

Temps were in the 30's the beginning of the wk & we had our first snowfall on Tue. morn. It covered the ground, but by afternoon - it was gone & stayed cold & wet all day. Now today its up into the 60's & boy am loving it. I will enjoy it while I can as I know it will not last.

Guess I better go as our neighborhood will have little ghosts & witches, football stars, princess & who knows what/who else walking the streets around here ringing the doorbell(if we have our porch light) on for a treat. My gk usually go in the neighborhood which I enjoyed walking with them, but this year they are going to a praise & worship song fest at their church. So, guess I will be the one at the house passing out the candy.

Time sure goes fast. Until the next time...

"Green Card"

Bet you didn' know I needed a "green card" did you? Yep, I did & my good buddy Terry designed & sent it to me.

She said she was making notecards & thought of me when she made the turtle.

Thank you Ms.T for thinking of me & putting a smile on my face & the neighbors wondering why I was cracking up when I got my mail & saw this.


For those of you that don't know this: I am called "turtle" on Nana's board.

I am not "into" Halloween but I saw some cute cards & items awhile back from Rachelle ( you can go to her blog over on the side here). This was inspired by her & "coppied" completely. I used CTMH's Creme Brulee & Black inks. Black , white daisy cardstock. stampsets by CTMH used were: Friendship alphabet small ( BOO ) Happy Haunting, Halloween Dingbats. other: "google" eyes. If I have time to make her "Frankie" card - both cards will go to my grandkids, - if not then I guess I will send out a belated RAK to someone. Hope you like this if you are reading this.

until the next time....

Happy Sunday-

Resting up from Friday & Saturday. No school for g.k. on Friday so they were here all day. They did real good. It was a little 'nippy' out, but they had fun gathering some leaves & covering each other up, then "scaring" me by jumping out of the pile - hehehe. Of course A.J. found a new use for the snow shovel. Got some great pics- can't wait to do some lay-out pics with the photos, but first will share a few pictures of their fun day.

Yesterday was a fun-filled & interesting day. I went to Hartville to my friend's house & another friend that lives near there in Canton came over we did some rubberstamping - started to work on our Christmas cards. We "broke" for lunch. Went to Hartville Kitchen but the line & wait was too long, or so we thought at the time, so we went to the other side of town. WHOA- what a mistake. The service was horrrible. It took us over 2 hours to be waited on, get our food, then get my bill corrected.Ms.P. talked very nice to the owner about the problem- but don't think it did any good. But hey- we did have fun, the food was o.k. & we learned- not to go there again. Something we can remember & laugh about & joke about now, that it's over with.

This card that I did, (thanks to C.G. a fellow consultant for the idea)... Everything is C.T.M.H. Photobucket

This card is a technique that I learned from the Adventures In Stamping convention that my niece & I went to a few wk. back. It was so much fun to do & of course the photo does not capture it the way it should.

From C.T.M.H. : Black cardstock, White Daisy cardstock & inkpad; Feathery Flakes stampset ( love-love-love this new stampset)' Liquid Glass, Prisma Glitter.
Non C.T.M.H. items:
Cool Grey & Pale Blue Copic inks
Opalite pigment reinker
Clear Acetate ( small square )
Snowflake punch.

until the next time...

Day 2...

Wow- can't believe I am posting again - so soon. At least I did not wait a year between my first post & this. Always something new to learn.
I was surprised & so happy to see all my wonderful first comments - thanks !!

"Rain-Rain go away, Come again another day, rain-rain...."
remember that childhood song? It was dreary & raining out this forenoon &I thought of it & wonder how many kids in this day know it & sing it. Something to ask my g.k. this eve.
They will be spending the night here because they have no school tomorrow ( teacher's workshop or something like that). I just might be singing that song tomorrow.
Rain - Rain.....

At our county fair this fall in Sept. in the Home Ec. building the 2 pictures I am showing here - the young person won first place. It was from the 9th-12th grade age bracket. But the pictures I took- do not do this justice.
Look as close as you can at all the details- It is so amamzing & just blew me away.If that young person continues & persues the field of art - can you just imagine all the talent that young one will have as an adult? WOWZERS....

I think if you click on the picture - it will enlarge for you to see better. Enjoy...

What am I doing..........

here with a Blog ????....


I started this blog way over a year ago, and I am just now getting ready to "write" in it.
But jeepers, I have no idea at all of what to say - what not to say.

I wish I was artistic & had a "way" with words like some do that I read, so in comparison- mine will be very boring.
Will I write in here every day- I doubt it.

Last few days have been beautiful & warm with all the rich vibrant fall colors. Today is a little rainy & cooler out. So not looking forward to winter with all the super-cold temps.
So now- I think I will go & see if I can make something ( need to get busy on my Christmas cards)
