Girl in bonnet card

We have had a lot of rain it though and so do my plants and veggies. :)
I made this card today...popped the image up with foam too. She is such a cutie in her bonnet. I found this image on the net. Hope everyone has a wonderful Weekend. Going to watch a movie and possibly start a puzzle later.

A card and quick word

First my card...I wanted to start making some "thank you" cards. I have been falling behind on them lately. Sure hope you like this one. I pieced a stamp (4 different papers) Added some stickles to her wings. She looks mighty pretty. Used my MS butterfly punch added some ink. THen used my Fiskars punches for the one with the sentiments added. Added some gel pen dots and ribbon. Used MY Minds Eye card base and added some papers to the corner for the design. Hope you like. My note:
Transformers 3 in 3d was just awesome. I am with my boys on this that all three of them have been wonderful. Can't pick a favorite as they were just fabulously made. Kinda like Star wars first 3.
We did see Cars 2 the other weekend and it was not as good as number one. Actually I was kinda disappointed in it. Bummer...
We had a good steak dinner out tonight. Now time for home!

Some quick cards....

Last night I decided to create....I had no idea at all what to create.So I began to look into my baskets to hopefully inspire me where to start.It has been awhile since I had nothing in mind.Easy when you need to whip up a card but this I had no idea.Then I came across this card kit that I had won a while back.So I figured hey why not go for that as it was kinda going to be a bit easy.Now I did put a twist on a couple of them but other then that I just did what they said to do. Everything was in each baggie for the card and a picture.So here are my simple cards that turned out so cute.

Love that they are for every occasion.

My hubby and oldest are off to Orlando for a few days for work.

So I am holding down the fort with the other three boys.

Enjoying quiet time now.

Which is very rare with these boys but they are either

playing games or skyping friends right now.

Tomorrow I plan on taking them to see Transformers then out to eat.

They should enjoy that. I know I will!

Hope everyone is doing great....Miss seeing your blogs but i have tried to stop by some these past few days. If I have forgotten to go to yours please pop me a line and I will make sure to get there soon.

Be blessed!

Long time...a creation and a gift.

Here is a cute little metal (old) compartment that my mom asked me to decorate. It was not as easy as you would think to do. So I did some inking to change the white paint and did some crackle paint as well in the center. I distressed the edges of the paper that I used to decorate it.

I added a butterfly with glitter trail...added a flower to the other side. Paper was beautiful as is. Inside...added some ink and paper. Looks better in person.

Below is a wonderful birthday gifts from my friend Lisa and her Daughter Beth in the UK...
I just love the t-shirt that Beth decorated with the cut of her own digi...found here.

Look at the loved necklace from Malta...

Wish the picture was clear but I took this picture in my bedroom and the color of the walls are dark so it does not take great photos.

I love everything which they know by an email. Just wanted to share a picture of it with all of you. So greatful for my blogging friends...

Stopping in with a "hello"

Unbelievable how busy life has been sorry for my absence lately. My niece had her baby yesterday...a little girl named Avaleigh she weighed 7lbs 1.5oz and 19 3/4 inches long. A full head of dark hair like her daddy. So happy to be a Great Aunt for the first time.

We now have a boat again...we went out on it all weekend...even after church on Sunday. It was wonderful. The blue skies and blue waters make it wonderful and peaceful. Then we swam and looked at crabs and star fish. It is amazing God's creations when you take time to enjoy them.

I just got in from grocery leg has been acting up. They never found out why I hold water on only one side of the body but when it acts up it sure does feel uncomfortable.
So that is why I am writing this post. Taking a break!

The boys are doing great! Keeping mighty busy or just enjoying the down time.

I bought a new book mainly for my oldest son but I too wanted to read it. So I started two days ago...yesterday I was at the hospital seeing the baby most of the day so I had no time for reading. So back to what the book is...well Tim Tebow's new book~through my eyes.
Let me tell you I am at page 86 and it is fabulous...I see where all my boys would benefit from reading the book. I would highly recommend this book!!!! A terrific read. Go figure it is one of my Florida Gators favorites writing it.

Okay....I hope all is well with each of you. Hope to see you in awhile....not yet. We are off to Gainesville on Monday and Tuesday for preview with Presten. Then we are leaving the following weekend for a vacation. Not sure of the plans for that. Just a getaway..unprepared too. haha....

Hugs and smiles...
Be blessed!

Here is a birthday card that I made yesterday. I had a few moments and wanted to try out a MS punch that I have had a while and never used. (Butterflies)
I made it a three fold card....Used images from a sheet of paper and cut with my pinking shears and inked. Added some ribbon and some flower tape.

Tomorrow is closet cleaning day with the boys....much needed! Trying to get things accomplished while they have friend time. Though tomorrow they have to help me out with their belongings.

Starting planning our vacation...much needed getaway. Looking like Tennessee again...we love it there.

Hope all is well with everyone...sorry I am a bad blogger lately. Know that I have not forgotten you it is just life happens.

Birthday goodie,some deals and a card...

Hard to believe the big ummmmm 4 something today! My fella's have treated me so sweetly today. I am feeling pretty spoiled. A new pots and pans set...purse & wallet and well some clothes and of course all those extra goodies that my parents bought me. I love everything and so appreciate the kind and thoughtfulness that surrounds me. A quick card that I made from my Crafters companion. It is so sweet...trying to get my cards made for the month of June. I used rub-ons from the kit on ribbon and it worked out beautifully.
Added stickles to the wings. Love the decoupage look with that cool glue.

Here is a sampling of some of my stock pile. I am doing pretty good with my couponing...

Example below...two suave washes and two vitamins that Austen uses...all for .47cents.

Here is the special globe that Presten surprised me with for my birthday.

I will treasure it for ever and ever....he was so sweet to think of me.

Usually they don't do much and this year they went all out.

He even engraved has a spot for the picture and plays music pretty!

Thanks for listening to me ramble...

Have a super Sunday.

We had a wonderful church service this morning. They did a wonderful graduation service...Pretty neat that they gave him a special bible and a cd set with all the popular christian music on it for graduates.

Going to watch a movie with the family and enjoy the rest of the day.

Two dad's day cards...

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far. My boys officially started Summer vacation today after school. I love this time with them...not jumping out of bed bright and early is also a plus for me.
I've decided to get an early start on Father's day cards. So here are two that I for my dad and one for Rob from the boys. I used Graphic 45 papers and cardstock for the main parts. Entering into challenge: and

Inside is ready to be written on...I did this with both cards.

I cut out the car from the leftover paper. I think they turned out pretty "male". Which is always a plus in my house. haha...

Blessings always,

A note

If someone could please help me find out why I can not leave comments on most blogs. I would love to be able to fix this or no one will be receiving comments. So if this has happened to you please let me know what you did to fix it. Thanks a bunch!!!

Also....If you would like to see my creation that was published please click here...

Another note: I do have a creation below if you would like to check it out...sometimes I can come up with things...this one is liked by all my boys so far. Let me know what you think.

Have a terrific day. We have bad storms so getting of the computer.

GD for Decorate to Celebrate's first challenge

Decorate to Celebrate has kindly asked me to be one of the Guest Designers this month.

The party theme this month is "Father's Day".

So this is what I created...

A Father's day penny bank.

I've used a cleaned out Pasta of the rather large size ones. (Going Green)

Used my metal scissors to cut the top lid and pliars to make sure no sharp edges.
I painted it with my Acrylic paint-brown.

I've cut out a piece of material to kinda hid the Pasta brands name.
Then with my cricut I cut out all the images. The cartridge that I have used was Celebrate with Florish.
I wanted to make a tag for this I came up with the large fishing pole that I have stuck in the penny opening. Lots of ink and done...The tape I used is my Scotch ATG and also Gorilla Glue to attach the image to the jar. I used string to keep in place while drying.

I hope you enjoyed my little table gift...My dad loves to collect change so while we have our get together everyone can drop in some coins. He will have a huge smile with that!

Happy Father's Day!

Now pop on over to Decorate to Celebrate blog to see what the other guest designers came up with. Lots of great ideas and projects!
smiles...always, Tammy
