What If You Fly?


Posts three days in a row!  That makes me happy as it means I've had more time to create!  Sharing the last of the graduation cards for this year.  This card is for my long time best friend, Sandy's daughter.  We went to dinner Monday night to celebrate Ashley's graduation and I thought this sentiment was absolute perfect as she heads off to college later this summer. And of course, I had to use her college school colors! Playing along with CAS(e) this Sketch!

Party Time


Happy Monday my friends!  Popping in to share a card I made on my last crafty retreat...when I  saw the challenge over at CASology I thought it was the perfect time to share it...while these may not be typical farm animals...I still thought it was a good fit!?  Think this is such a fun set!  Hope your week gets off to a great start.

Merry Christmas

Happy Sunday morning my friends...I'm up early and happily enjoying the quiet house while I craft in the basement.  The house is a bit emptier than normal.  Pat is out of town with his brothers, Jonathon is at a friend's bakehouse for the weekend and Ryan and his girlfriend headed back to OU yesterday afternoon. I love having a full house, but also love the quieter moments too.

So I'm up and happily crafting. I have about 10 cards ready to mail out to friends I'm thinking of and about four graduation cards for dear friends children.  But the first card that I wanted to create this morning was for the current Muse Challenge. It has been way too long since I have played over there and isn't Anita's inspiration card gorgeous?


I hope you all are getting time to create today too!
