52 Cards… Card 6

Well as you can tell I’ve been gone awhile. I’ve been crafting, just not blogging about it. 

I have a card to share with you that I made and sent for my Dad’s birthday in January. I’m trying to make and send more birthday cards this year. 
This is the front of the card and the envelope.

And the back. 

I do a lot of “back art” on my cards, but don’t always show it. I couldn’t resist showing this one since it carries through the theme of the sentiment inside.
Hopefully it won’t be so long between post, but no promises lol


Sorry it been so long since I have written last. I hate it when life gets in the way 😀 Haven’t been crafting much, just been super busy.
I’ve been following rukristin’s Awesome Ladies Project Challenge. I was honored to be chosen and one of her quest designers.  

The prompt I got to work on was selfies.  I really like taking selfies, they are a great way to capture the moment. We have been doing selfies for years, even before cellphones. It is so much better now lol. This week’s prompt was right up my alley, since I like taking selfies, I had a road trip with great friends, and selfies I could use. It also got me going on making this project as I have never thought of doing a layout with selfies before.

Over the weekend I went to San Deigo with friends for Stampin’ Up’s “On Stage” ( for demonstrators). It was so much fun doing a road trip.  We stayed with one of our friends who has a place in Escondido. She told us about a place that was famous for their donuts, called Peterson’s Donut Corner that is open 24 hours. So of course we had to go check it out. They were so good we had to go back the next day for breakfast, and made one last trip before we headed out of town. The definitely a highlight of the trip.  Of course we took selfies to document our trips. 

I had fun doing this page, great way to remember the weekend. 

Will try to do better posting. Until next time…..


The Quilt

Sorry I haven’t been around. Life sometimes get in the way of art lol.

I haven’t been working on my #30 Lists, because I’ve been working on a quilt. I will hopefully get back to it soon. 

The first week of August I signed up for a quilting class. I have quilted in the past, but that was about 20 years ago. Boy have things changed! The lady I took the class from lives about 10 minutes away. I had great time learning to quilt and getting to know Laurene. She is a professional quilter. Check out her stuff on Facebook, she is peacock quilting.  (Her website)

It was fun picking out fabric. After that I cut the blocks out I needed.

Then it was time to sew them together 

Once they were sewn together I cut them into the blocks I was going to use. 

I had fun deciding which block went where. 

The finished top……

 And with the border….

I just have the back and binding to finish and then I’ll have Laurene quilt it for me. I’m having so much fun quilting I’m already thinking about my next quilt (or 2 lol) Will keep you posted. 

#30 Lists / Day 5

The prompt today on #30 lists is Movies that make me laugh………

I’m sure this list dates me, but oh well. 😀 Christmas Vacation is a family favorite, we try to watch it at least once every Christmas season. 

I remember the first time I watched Bring Up Baby. I was staying at my In-laws and couldn’t sleep, so I was surfing late night TV. I found this old movie and started watching.  I got to laughing so hard I thought I was going to wake everyone up. That was the first time I had ever saw Audrey Hepburn in a comedy roll. It was great. 

#30 lists/day 3

The most wonderful time of the year….

I know it’s not Christmas, don’t really even want to think about it yet lol, but today’s list asked what my favorite days were and Christmas is definitely one of my favorite days. It is the only holiday I insist we celebrate on the day it is meant to celebrated on. (Our kids are married and it is hard to have 2 Thanksgiving, etc so we usually celebrate on a different day. Works for us)
