More like such & such

I’m going to try and post more cards and get back to the root of my blog. Though it all seems quite pointless, it makes me happy.

Here’s a card I made for Kristina Werner’s Finally Friday Video Challenge. I changed the orientation of the paper and design elements. The lay out is basically the same still, slightly busy with the bow.  i should have written ‘happy easter’ in pencil first, then gone back over it with pen, just to get the arching right. oh well, i didn’t end up giving it to anyone anyways, its in the garage hanging out with a bunch of other junk piled up on my desk. i wish it was finally friday.

think inside the box

Getting back to a work out routine is a stretch to say the least. For not having worked out very much, ever, I want to do it right this time. I want to be active, to stay in shape and to be healthy. I’m highly motivated and highly encouraged by my best friend in the whole world. Take one look at him and you’ll know I’m bound to be fit. Work out regimen: have fun. So far, we’ve played tennis two times and it’s been so much fun. i enjoy constructive criticism, sweating, running to collect the balls and squeaky shoes. I still have a few areas of improvement… serving, forehand, backhand, control, my mouth and tennis. Everyone has room for improvement and no one is perfect. Positivity is the key to a well played game, that and water on your head.  Next exercise PMA or some weights. We’ll see which is easier, probly weights.

‘oh, my quivering whiskers’

thank you to my wonderful son, here’s my new favorite show. on qubo! It really is the cutest cartoon i think i’ve ever seen. The theme song is so inspiring and the simplistic animation is ever so charming.

You use your head
I use mine
We’ll put ’em together
And what’ll we find?
We can do it when we do it together

We have fun, whatever we do
Let’s keep thinking till we think it through
We can do it when we do it together

I’ve got an idea
And though we might mess up
We’ll put our heads together
And we won’t give up

We’re a team with lots to share
It’s not where going
It’s how we’re gonna get there
We can do it when we do it together
We can do it, me and my friend Rabbit.

Funny how the mouse’s name is Mouse and the rabbit’s is Rabbit, but everyone else has a pretty unique name. Thunder, Edweena, Jasper and Hazel. Not to mention those gibble goose girls, Jade, Amber Coral and Pearl. Now, if only they would sing in harmony.

It’s no wonder it originated in Canada.

{Lets Scribble}

So here’s the newest Scribble This Challenge and boy are you gonna laugh at this one!

Its all about getting rid of the blur… which always helps when you can’t get it right in the first place with the camera. Especially when you wear glasses and try and compensate for what you think is blurry and really isn’t, which is why you wear glasses…

and that’s the funny part… I can’t find my glasses. Hopefully this is clearer than when I started because I just don’t know if it looks right or not. I’m really crossing my fingers while I upload this pic! But i did use the macro focus on my camera when i shot it.

Anyways, I made this card for my husband for our 1 Year Wedding Anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been that long, but it has been a packed year for sure!

I asked him what his favorite colors are and he said blue, black and gray. which i thought was hilarious because he designed our bedroom and the walls are gray, the furniture is black and the bed spread and accents are blue… who would have thought!

Enjoy the card and thanks for looking!

Before After

I also used the tutorial from the Scribble This! Challenge #2 to get rid of the gloom.

Color Inspiration Challenge #54


So this is my first submission to the CIC, but I’ve folowed Kristinas challenges since # 45 but have always been too chicken to submit any of my cards for lack of confidence. I did try and sneek in a card for the big five-o, but never wanted anyone to see it. I’m always so self concious when it come to sharing my creations but I used one of Kristina’s layouts from her April:  A Year in Cards Class over at Two Peas in a Bucket, which gives me a little boost. Anyways, here’s the card…

New Life

New Life

This new life belongs to one of my mentor’s, she is having her baby shower on Sunday and I was truly inspired by the cute carseat and color combo in this challenge. TFL!

Happy Birthday Dad

So here’s a card I made for my father-in-law’s birthday. I bought the stamp set from Martha Stewart’s glitter pack collection, and it came with some deer. Normally I wouldn’t use deer, but I came up with this clever saying that seemed usable.

Something Great.

So i guess i’ll try this out, blogging. Who knows, maybe i’ll come to like it, maybe not. My own digital journal for anyone to read. I’m hoping no one will, but if they do, or you do, or are, or whatever then i hope you find it interesting.  We’ll see how it goes. Hopefully i can figure out how to make it fancy, interesting, ya know those blogs that you have to check everyday or you might lose your mind kinda fancy. And if not, i’ll keep trying.

So here’s to the start of something great!
