Tropical Summer

Hope everyone is having a good week.  Here is my entry for the Delightful Inspiration ongoing challenge this week.  I am trying my hand with my new Promarkers.  Not really thrilled with the outcome but I have only done a couple of things with them so far.  They were a birthday gift from my husband and kids and I have always wanted to try using alcohol markers, I knew there would be a learning curve. :)  I don't think I could ever give up my Prisma colored pencils!  I just enjoy trying new mediums.  Hope everyone has a wonderful 4th and remember our past and present military for all the sacrifices they make for us all!! Blessings

Fresh Cut

Hope everyone is having a great week.  I love the digi from Delightful Inspiration this week, but I am a sucker for flowers anyway. :) I just wish we would get some good soaking rain so my flowers will do something, they are looking really sad right now.  Thats the way it goes, some people are dealing with floods and some of us are looking toward the sky and praying for rain!  It has been another busy week and I haven't even started on most of the projects I have planned for the summer.  The really sad thing is I have had almost zero time for working on cards. Where does the time go.................  Hope everyone has a great weekend. Blessings!!

Mary, Mary

This was such a cute stamp, I just loved it!!!  The expression on her face is just adorable.  I had a lot of fun working with this digi.  Thank you to Delightful Inspiration for providing us with this precious image this week in their ongoing challenge.  If you haven't every tried one of their digital stamps, join us at the beginning of the month and grab the freebie and enjoy the fun.  It has been a very busy week again this week, VBS and getting one ready to leave this weekend for Boy Scout camp.  I always look forward to the summer break from school, but it just doesn't seem to ever slow down.  I keep looking around and seeing all the work I have do do around here and I am trying so hard to get myself motivated. :)  Somehow playing in my craft area and reading just seem so much more fun. LOL  I hope everyone has a great week and all the men in your life have a great Father's Day!  Blessings!

Fun flowers!

Hi! Hope everyone has had a good week and enjoyed the Memorial Day weekend.  Always in our prayer for our servicemen and their families and the sacrificies they make.  We are blessed to have such brave men and women.  Busy week here, we attended the marching band banquet Tuesday night, always a lot of fun.  Our two oldest sons have both been in band since middle school and we have really enjoyed it, lot of work but a lot of fun too!  Then the ever fun EOG retesting at school. :( Thankfully tomorrow will be the last day and the last day for me to work.  Kind of mixed feelings about that, I am looking forward to be off for the summer, but the big question is will I have a job next year?  Only time will tell and I will just have to pray that everything will work out.  Sadly, several have already lost their jobs as the budget cuts are looming over our heads.  Our oldest son is graduating this coming week, man do I feel old!!! :) So along with my card for the ongoing challenge at Delightful Inspiration, I have also included a picture of the card I made for him.  We are proud of all three of our boys and wish for them all the best that life has to offer.  I hope everyone has a great weekend! Blessings
