Tennis anyone?

Tennis anyone 2014
Hello everyone, I hope you have been enjoying your summer? It has been pretty cool summer here in Wisconsin but for me I love it that way. Been in the middle 70’s with beautiful sunny days and cool at night. Have had no air condition on this year so far. With not feel so good I have been taking things pretty slow, doctor found my thyroid need to raised so now it is 150mcg and also had to stop my cholesterol so now I take Gemfibrozil 600mg twice a day and that is for cholesterol and triglyceride. I hope these are going to make a difference for me because feeling down, tired and having a cold is not fun and it is taking way to long to go away. So just taking it easy and trying to get better.
Now all the good stuff, The challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday has started and the twist for this week is about FUN IN THE SUN. Our sponsor for the month of July is Anne’s designs. The image I choose for this week is called “Suzy Tennis Anyone S008” and you can find her here.

All the paper I used are from my scrap ben. Always trying to use them up. The die cuts I used are from La La Land their Heart Banner and Sizzix Ticket die.

Add the hearts from the banner to the ribbon from Hobby Lobby it is a sheer iridescence light blue. I sponged around Suze with Brilliance sky blue.

Smile and say Goodbye

Smile 2014
I’m here today with a sadden heart. This is our last Challenge #95 for Color Me Creative and the theme is all about FRIRNDS and this challenge ends on July 11th, 2014. I have been with the community for 4 years, I do have to tell you. I remember when I first found Suzanne (God Sent) when she told me what the numbers and the letters on the copic markers meant she made me so happy and things started to make since at least a little at that time because I was buying my markers because I loved the colors. I did not know they need to work together, then when she started the classes I was right their to sign up and I learned so much from Suzanne.  The community will be their for awhile but my dear friend Suzanne has new adventures.

Our Fabulous Sponsor this challenge is

Birthday Pin

I used Stampin up punches but you can use any punches you want. The first one is 1 3/4 (scalloped), second one is 1 1/2 (round) and the third one is 1 1/4 (scalloped). You only need to punch one of each.

Smile 2014  p

You can use any colors and shapes. I stamped the sentiment on the last one before I put the pin together. The ribbon would be nice if you could match it to your colors. Depending on the size of the pin cut the ribbon so it will fit just an inch 1 or 2 under the pin and glue it to the back. You can sponge around the edges of all or just one (up to you). I stamp the Happy Birthday with Memento tuxedo black ink. The stamp I have no idea who made it (sorry).

Smile 2014  pin cuts
You can use a pin (safety) to put it on the Birthday person. As far as the sentiment you can make these pins for all kinds of occasions, it is up to you. Enjoy and and have some fun with it.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great week.

Girly Girl and a hole lot more!

Gift for you 2014
I hope you have a cup of coffee or tea and today is my day to get all my cards and projects all posted so you can see what I have been doing. As everyone knows I have been really busy and life has been crazy for me since the first part of March and then being gone for two months and coming home to so much that has not been done but I think I got thing all together now, this has only took me about a month to kind of get back to normal if that is what you want to call my life. I was working on my craft room (remember) now it is a mess but I’m going to get things started again. Have the carpenter coming by today to get started on some work I want done, this is good. Birds are all doing really good but have not had time to sit and enjoy much. But life is good. It was very hard for me to do posting on my blog when I was in Austin and I must tell you with a big smile on my face Georiganna is doing so much better going to therapy twice a week and getting around with her motor chair and doing things and when I talk to her she is much better spirits and I want to say you ladies that sent a card to her brought a big smile to her face and she says THANKS YOU SO MUCH. It is not easy for her to write things, I told her I would let you all know how much she appreciates your thoughtfulness. All the cards are on her fireplace.
Now I’m not going to talk forever so please bear with me.

Girly Girl 2014  l

This was for the Anything goes challenge. I picked up at Hobby Lobby in the wood department these pieces of wood already cut 3 1/2 by 2 3/4. Add a mirror, an Angel I had from Christmas, some gems flowers, punched a hole in the center top and put in some ribbon to hang the little ornament. How fun was that.

Take time to be silly 2014

My SIL had this stamp and it was so much fun to make this card. The stamp is from Art Impressions stamps and it had no name on the stamp.  My oldest son and his wife are talking about getting some  chickens so I thought this was a perfect card for them. They have moved down to Caneyville Kentucky, can’t wait to go down and see their place. House and 15 Acers so they have a lot of land.

Take time to be silly 2014  r

My SIL does not have much when it come to embellishments. I did some paper piercing. Added a ribbon.

Take time to be silly 2014  l

The paper was some I found.

I only could fine one border punch and it is Martha Steward and I do not know what it is called. But it looks good. These are the copic marker I used to color the image.

Still was something missing… The ground need something??? Started thinking and thought of pencil shavings. What do you think?

I was so happy with the card. If you made it this far I really want to thank you for giving me this much time today. I do hope you like my cards. I hope this never happens again. I do have more to share with you but you will have to wait on them for a few days. Have a super week and stay safe. I you want thought I would share a couple pictures of my brother Bill and Georgianne with you.
