Little Colts Fan and Birthdays

This first card is made for some dear friends who just welcome baby #3 into their family. They live in Indiana and are Colts fans. The stamp is a digital one from Elizabeth Bell. Isn't he adorable?
This is just a super simple and sweet birthday card using a Belles n Whistles Stamp.

This is a card using another Elizabeth Bell digital. The last card is also using this stamp and is for my DD's 18th birthday!

No Pop! ;)

A big No- No on the XC team is drinking pop during the season. Especially Mountian Dew! Of course it never gets drank. (Wink, Wink, Nudge, Nudge). However, it always shows in their times when they do. The letters are Mickey Mouse Cart and the Eyes are from Wild Card.

So today at Hollie's House of Hug I worked on 2 presents. One for my daughter and one for my niece. I'm almost done and getting ready to work on them again. Hopefully I'll also get DD's XC scrapbook finished today too. Picked up pictures from Walgreens. Tomorrow I need to work on Graduation Party. Did I mention DD is #3 in her class. Woot!

Happy Birthday Eileen!

Miss Eileen is 6 years old today. Seems just like yesterday her Grandma was handing me a brand new wee babe. Had to make a really special card this special girl. (It's so easy to spoil the Myong girls!) I used Belle's n Whistle stamp, Cupcake. The flower is from SVG Cuts 3D Flowers II, windflower. The paper is Stampin' Up.

Today is not only Eileen's special day, but also a big Happy 17th to my nephew Craig way down in Southern Indiana. And Welcome to the world Mr. Josiah William born today to our dear friends, Steve & Ann.

A Little Scrappin'

I actually got a few scrapbook pages done this weekend. It felt so good. I think I got aobut 8 or 9 pages done this week. The house is put back together after dealing with the mold. Yeah. The 2 pages I'm showing you are from the Spring Musical at the HS. In the first page I made my own SVG's.The Stage border is a SCUT file and can be downloaded here. It is for SCAL 2 and is a very rough cut. Needs a little tweaking. Sorry I don't have the time to tweak it. The Bye Bye Birdie SVG is here. The 2nd page I used Sunny Day font from the Sesame Street Cart and the Retro Phone is From the Kitchen.
Hope you are having a great Sunday.

Sympathy Card

This is a sympathy card a made for one the dearests families I know. My dear friend, Joyce, passed away last month. She leaves a huge hole in our lives. I used Tania Baking stamp from Belles 'n Whistles. Joyce was an amazing cook, baker, quilter, sewer, musician, etc. One of her many ministries was the treats on Wednesday night for youth. The Pre-school children called her Cookie Joyce Grandma. I cut squars for the background and pasted them on to look like a quilt. On the Yellow squares I quilted memories of Joyce for the "stitching". I doubt anyone noticed but I know that Joyce would have.

Eww and you've got to be kidding me!

So Monday we found that Spring Clean Up for our town would be Wendesday. Lots of notice huh? Anyway I started cleaning the basement and found a couple of place of mold EWWWWW! What a mess anyway. The basement has had most of my attention this week. Just finished painting the walls and tomorrow I'm going to start working on some of the trim and hopefully start to put a few things back.
On the other hand yesterday, I got a real treat. I got to play a $78,000 Steinway Grand Piano. Woot was that ever cool.
Needless to say the Art Cave is feeling pretty neglected this week. But wanted to share a care I made for a few a couple of weeks ago. The lovely lady on the inside of the card is from The Quilling Place. She got a good laugh from it.
