I made this card for a friend that broke her wrist a few weeks back. I colored it and then added the sentiment. Darned if I didn't get carried away and pushed the sentiment a bit too hard.  Now... how to "disquise"  the overly black sentiment. Hmmmm... I pulled up the image and matted it in black.  Did you think it worked?

Stamp used:

Kitten Cast

(Paper is Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas)

A fast and easy creation....Pretty much all I can find time for these days due to family obligations.  I colored  this cute stamp with copics and used a nice die to cut and mat the image.  The sentiment was generated in my Silhouette software.

I was the smartest woman in the room...












Just a quick wood project to share today.  I made this for my friend for her birthday a few months back. I probably need one for myself too!!!

I saw this saying on Facebook and just had to make a sign. Hope you get a laugh out of it! ♥ Sue

Tie it Up! Grandson cards







Shirt and Hanger Tie from My Scrap Chick



This  card is actually a mixture of a couple My Scrap Chick Files with ties in them.  I just kind of put a couple files together-one for the card base and one for the tie. My goal is to send a very quick card each week to my grandsons-let's see how I do!!
I wanted to memorialize these rights of passage and life lessons my grandsons are learning while they are staying home with their parents due to  the pandemic stay at home orders. They are busy boys so they are keeping their parents on their toes! They are growing so fast.  I can't believe Cole will be a teenager in a few months. Wow, the time has flown... Thanks for stopping in!

Hello House Mouse Lovers! 

It's been quite a while since I have crafted-- so it felt good to get my pens out and do a little coloring! Being a bit rusty I decided to keep this card simple and clean. This image makes a perfect spring card!!

For my card today I used a new stamp named Tweet Treat

Enjoy the little things







In these crazy times, we all need to step back and enjoy the little things in our life.

I have tried to write this post several times but my heart is aching and that makes it hard to share with you all.

I made this sign as my Christmas 2019 annual wood project. At that time the sentiment was speaking to me. I am in the process of slowing down, retiring from my job and recharging my batteries- enjoying my home and my family. Looking forward to crafting and working on my wish list of projects. 

Today this means so much more... My oldest brother died unexpectedly last week.  I am sad, teary eyed and heart broken. 

He was always there for me. If I needed help, he was there. He and his wife  helped me take care of our Mother when she was in hospice. We were a team and could depend on each other. 

I feel a bit ungrounded. 

I will be ok. We will all be ok through these crazy times

I have had numerous crafty friends send me Sympathy cards. They mean so much to me. Thank YOU!

It's just a reminder of why we crafters do what we do...our creations touch hearts! Mail a homemade card today, brighten someone's day. 



Love your family- let them know you love them and

Enjoy the little things... Sue

Penny Black Satruday Challenge-Spring!









March Inspiration

'Anything Goes'

or our optional theme-


Spring





Spring is really just around the corner!  This time last year we had several feet of snow on the ground! This year we had a bit of snow in November and then nothing! Strangest weather ever...my trees and flowers are confused!

This stamp is perfect spring inspiration don't you think?  I cut the pretty tulip  mat with my Silhouette and it worked perfect for this card. This is a 5 x 7 card. This is the first time out and about  for my new PB sentiment stamp set too.  




Penny Black Stamps used:

Tulips for You

and

 Love Sentiments

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #311

'Embossing, wet or dry'

Our challenge this time around is embossing-either wet or dry. Unfortunately the embossing powder I tried to use must have been only glitter so my creation this week will be ATG's. Go figure...

For my card today I used a fun card base cut with my Silhouette and a sweet little stamp from a Mini Clear set.  I cut the image out with my Scan n Cut and added it on with dimensionals. The pretty paper is from my stash-designed by Teresa Collins.
