Memorial Day and American cards

Hello all. What are you doing for Memorial Day?

I am going to do Little shopping on Saturday. Maybe so type of crafty purchases :)
Sunday is grocery shopping day. But most of my holiday weekend will be making cards for
Operation Write Home & Send Love today. I love these two charities. I just have to remember to not use glitter for the OWH cards. The SLT cards are for the kids. Will you make cards for the troops? Its a great way to remember the troops that serve this country.

love using the K & company paper for this card.

Thanks for hanging with me.

Peachy Keen Challenge #52

Hi I finally did a card for the Peachy Keen challenges. I saw the sketch and finally saw my card in this layout

I love how this card came out. I wish the faces were darker though :)

Pattern paper by K & Company's new American paper. I also got the matching star stickers for the side of the card. I used organzy ribbon from Offray to do the middle strip. I used felt stars from Spare Parts-Paper company. I stamped Basic Paper dolls faces onto the felt stars. I had to do a senitment. This card was screaming for a cute saying. Sentiment is from Stampedous.   What do you think? Its just a Happy hello LOL.
This card made a A2 sized card.

Looking forward to the holiday weekend. I plan on making some cards for Operation Write Home. Will you be working on cards for this cause too?

Thanks for hanging out this me.

Mousey Birthday card

Hello all. Thanks for looking at my blog. I did some more walking. Boy does it feel good to be able to do it.
I also did my model horse show on Saturday. I did well. Mostly i had fun seeing my friends i haven't seen since March. I relized that i love both my hobbies, since i have met some wonderful people. I am so lucky that i can call them friends.

I did this card since i need to build up my stash of birthday cards.  This stamp is from Whipper Snapper. They make the cutest animal stamps. The pattern paper is from DCWV- dots stripes and plaid mat stack.
I used scissors for the edge around the image. the dots in the corners are stickers from Stampendous. I colored the image with my prisma colored pencils.

I am doing a good job? I would love to hear from you. When i get alittle better at this , i will be doing challenges for some prizes. I hope it will be soon.

Thanks for hanging with me today.

A Peachy Card

Hi All. I am so proud of myself. Since being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis i have not been being good to my body and spirit.  Since today was a really nice day today in Upstate New york. I told myself that i will start walking again. I did it!! I walked a half mile today. This is really good for a person about 7 months ago couldn't walk to the bathroom and back without pain. I walked 3/4s the way and then i got a cramp in my thigh. Lets say that smarted!! But i sucked it up and did ,my cool down laps. I listen to some great music.

I did a card to cheer myself up. I have had my Peachy Keen faces and i finally got some stamped. I found these really cool flowers from Hero arts that need centers. The faces fit perfectly. I want to put some clouds on it to finish it. The flowers are so cheery. makes me smile. I hope it makes you smile too.

cardsrock from Recollections, pattern paper from DCWV. Flower stamps from Hero Arts. Faces from Peachy Keen- Basic Paper Dolls Assortment.

Hopefully i can walk tommorrow. Its suppose to be really nice. I have a model horse show on Saturday that i am lloking forward to.
Thanks for Hanging out with me today.

Tommorrow is my Baby sister's birthday. It seems like yesterday that we were children together.

I am so glad that i can make cards to save money and give someone a handmade something.

I love how it came out. What do you think?
I am so sick of rain, its suppost to rain almost all week. I am looking to make some cheery cards to keep the gloomies away.
