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.

For this week The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge is always “Anything Goes” but the Twist this week is to do a “Feminine card or project”. All the cards and projects I will be showing you today are things I have done for Twisted Thursday.

For the month of June our Sponsors are

and Paper Temptress

I found this box in with some things I had and wanted to do something with it. So this is what I did. I printed out my image on Cryogen paper and colored her with copic markers. I do want to tell you I was sure I took a picture of the markers but I could not fine it. Sorry! The papers I used are from Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Collection. I lined the box with the papers. My ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The lace I used was some that I had here. My butterfly is from Wild Orchid crafts.

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.

If you need a brake I understand… but almost done.

Are There Chicks yet?

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.

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

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.
