Crash and A Scarecrow

We were sitting around talking and thinking about where to go for dinner Friday evening when BOOM, this happened right out in our front yard. The woman driving this car went left of center and side swiped another car before losing control and flying through the air and landing here, in my front yard. I'm sure glad she didn't have a passenger with her. Here's another view. You can see where the back door panel was ripped off........

And now for the scarecrow. We made these adorable cards at our last stamp club meeting.
Isn't he just the cutest thing? I put wiggle eyes on the crow to make him a little more animated.........Thanks for looking!

Card no. 4 and My Favorite

Our company is still here, I'm feeling a little better but Richard still doesn't sound very good. When he gets this stuff it seems to just hang on forever. Anyway, here is the fourth and final card we made using the set Inspired by Nature. This one is my favorite because of it's simplicity. We inked the stamp with markers and then spritzed it with water giving it a watercolor look. I love the way this card turned out and the colors we used on it...Thanks for looking!

Embossed Nature

This is the third card we did with Inspired by Nature. We stamped the main image with white craft ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder. The designer paper is Urban Garden. I never thought of stamping right on the designer paper but I really like the way it looks. This is something I will do again.......... We still have our company, it's been a looong 3 weeks. If that's not enough my husband and I are both sick with colds and sinus/allergy stuff. So if I'm MIA it will be because I'm not feeling up to posting. Thanks for looking........Rita

Inspired by Nature #2

Yeah, it's Friday!!!! This has been a very stressful week with the kids and with my husband gone I haven't had any help. He's coming home Sunday so next week should be a little better. Dare I admit that I'm getting too old for this? Noooo, never!
Anyway, here's the second card we made at last weeks workshop. This one was really quick and easy. The center square is Pretty in Pink and the image was stamped over it with Basic Grey. Don't you just love these colors together?
It's cooled down here and starting to feel more like Fall, finally. I plan on enjoying every minute of it this weekend. Enjoy your weekend, do something special and I hope to see you in Church.......Thanks for stopping by..Rita

Baby Wipes

Okay, so I came home from scrapbooking at the retreat and went to a stamp workshop. I know, I know that's a bit much for one weekend, but what can I say? Anyway we made four cards using the same stamp set. One of my favorite sets, Inspired by Nature and I actually have this one. We did the background using re-inkers and a baby wipe. The designer paper is Haiku and the cardstock is Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. This set is so versatile, it can be used for just about any occasion..... Thanks for looking!

Sisters Page

I was able to get 20 pages done at the retreat this weekend and this is one of my favorites. My beautiful Granddaughters. I still have a few things to add to the other pages before I post them here for all to see. I didn't take my Cricut with me so I had to wait until I got home to do my titles. I did this one using the Jasmine cartridge and decided to use the negative instead of the actual letters. Click on the photo for a larger view............ Here's my car all packed up and ready to go. It's a good thing I went alone, I don't think we could have gotten another thing in...Thanks for looking.

The Rest of the Set

Since this will be my last post this week, I'm leaving tomorrow for the retreat, I've decided to show you the rest of the set of cards and box I made from the card kit. The stamp set used was Upsy Daisy and the Designer Series Paper used was Urban Garden. The first 2 photos are the last two cards I made and the third photo is the box to put them in.

Thanks for looking and have a super weekend. I hope to have a lot of pictures to share when I get back....

Card #2

This is the second card I made from the kit. I think this one would be perfect for the men on your list. The ink used was Basic Grey. I really like this one. In case you were wondering why my posts have been a little short it's because my husbands brother from California is staying with us for 3 weeks. I had to set up a bed in my craft room and things in there right now are limited plus I have a lot of it packed away for my scrapbooking retreat this weekend. I might have a little more time next week since I'll be home alone, they're going to New York to visit the other brother and their sister. Woo hoo!!!!
Thanks for looking.............Rita

From your Mummy

Good evening everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend. I had a very, very busy one. Saturday morning I went to my stamp club, came home and grabbed a bite and checked my email. Then it was off to Columbus (2 hr. drive) to pick up my husbands brother who's staying for 3 weeks. Sunday it was off to Church, grocery shopping, 6th. grade football game to watch our granddaughter cheer and then to our daughter's house for Chili, mmmm, was it good. All in all I would say it was a full weekend. Our stamp club was a Halloween theme and this is one of the cards we made. Isn't it cute? The inside says, Happy Halloween from your Mummy.
