Small swap ~ Big fun!

Greetings! I hope you had a nice weekend, I did. Saturday, some new and old friends shared a small card swap at Tara's store. Whether it's for Cricut fun, scraping or stamping, Tara has the perfect space.
She's starting to carry stamps and there's a wonderful variety of designer paper and other accessories to boot. Back to the swap. This setting would be fabulous for any beginning swapper, the number of participants is great for those possibly intimidated by larger groups. And the talent, well just see for yourself ~ here are a few of my favorite cards minus a few that I didn't quite "reproduce" correctly. Anyway, I think Tara may offer this once in awhile. Watch her online calendar for future dates. Here's to the start of yet another great week! These wonderful works of art were created by Krista, Suzy Tyler, Tara Vu and Sharon Simpson. Thanks ladies!

Monday Mojo on a Tuesday!

Woohoo, this is better timing then I've had in a month of Sundays. Julee Tilman, thank you for this sketch. I think I may have made it just a little too big for the picture. This was fun, I used some designer paper I bought at my friend Tara's store in Allen, TX. The Personal-Scrapbook. I also bought these adorable Amuse stamps there. I grew up in Houston so summer and the beach go hand in hand. Galveston may not be the prettiest beach in the world but I've had some great times on the Seawall Blvd over the years. ~ Pass the sunscreen!

Summer's here!

Hi peeps! I had a wonderful long lunch with great friends and then took too long of a nap. I'm sure to pay for that tomorrow. I made this card for my 12 year old friend Hannah. I hope she's having a great summer. I was happy to match this Paper Pretties stamp of the month set with the Disney 'wave' paper. To me it looks like water. The card is fashioned after Jen's Saturday sketch. Thanks for the inspiration! Have a great week.

Bobbie and Brenda

This post is dedicated to Bobbie Nell, shown here just a few weeks before she went home to be with the Lord. Bobbie was my friend's Brenda chief rat killing runner. Brenda estimates we met Bobbie about 12 years ago. She was tall, sanguine and funny right to the end. Three months ago, she became really ill and was diagnosed with Leukemia. They told her it was very aggressive and estimated she had 3 weeks to live. She wanted to see her granddaughter Megan graduate high school. She and Jesus got all the way up to the graduation and she was able to enjoy the family celebration before she took her last downward spiral. Now, even in the midst of her passing, we celebrate her life, love and laughter. I pray for my friend Brenda and made this card for her.

I'm going to try to get back to creating and posting more often again. Once you get away from it, the time sure fills up quickly.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you and yours are well!
