Man Card…..ARH,ARH,ARH!

ROFL……I always have trouble making “man” cards.  When I saw the “Gus” digital images at Bugaboo I knew these would make great man cards!


I think my Dad would have gotten a kick out of this one!  I finally got my Bakers cord I bought on EBay……They didn’t know what I was talking about at Michaels!!!  Now I have 8 colors!!!  How something so simple can make me happy! (Although I would be extremely happy with an IPad!!!) LOL!

That’s it from me for a couple days, I have to work the weekend.

Have a good one!


Donate to Japan!

Morning everyone!

Today I have a card for you using an image from Mo’s Digital Pencil.  This sweet little image is being sold for only a dollar.  proceeds are going to money being raised for relief in Japan.  You get a wonderful image and are doing a wonderful thing at the same time!

Here is my card-


Isn't she sweet!  I wonder what she will cook???

Have a wonderful day everyone!!!

Challenge Day at Sassycheryls!

Hi everyone……I”M BACK IN MY CRAFT ROOM!!!!!!!!!  Yipppeeee!!!!  But if you had been here last week you would have had a good chuckle!
I was sooooo needing to make a card during the floor reno.  It was crazy.  I went to my craft room to see if there was something to at least color ( all my paper and embellishments were stacked in the basement).  Well I saw that our challenge this week is to make a card having to do with nature.  So I colored a new image then figured how hard could it be to find what I need downstairs right?  WRONG!!!!!!!  I had to crawl over stuff to find the right carts with what I needed and it took many trips.  Finally I descided to keep the card simple because I could not locate what I wanted.

Here is my card-


Here is a side view.  I printed the image twice so I could cut out the girl leaning on the post.


What I could locate to make my card-
  • Sassycheryls Digital Image- The Thinking Spot
  • Paper is all SU, white, chocolate chip, mellow moss.
  • Copic markers, leaf punch, dimensionals, Rolled flowers I had premade.
Now head over to the Sassycheryl Challenge Blog  to see what my sassy Sisters have made!
Have a great week everyone!

New Floors Day 1

Well today starts the installation of my new floors that I have been dreaming off for the last 3 years!

Today the sub floor was installed in the kitchen, back entry and bathroom.  The lino is here and is warming up ( it is –29 today!).  It will be installed tomorrow.

Here is a picture.


Now to explain something……I am kind of working in the wrong order but it can’t be helped. LOL!  I will be sanding and refinishing the bottom cabinets to match the uppers.  I tried the idea of having the upper cabinets a different color from the bottoms (I watch too many decorating shows!!).  I have lived with it for 2 years and have never been happy with it so I am going to have all white!!!

I also pulled out the railing that divided the dinning area from the front room one day when Harry was at work.  You can see the patching on the end of the wall in the center.  Needless to say he was “very” surprised when he got home.LOL!

Stay tuned for day 2……….
