Rosie Posie

Happy Fourth of July to my American friends! 

I’m a day late with my post.  I think I have mentioned before that my life has gotten crazy busy lately.  Anyhow, I completely forgot to type up my post.  I did my project, took the pictures, had my list of supplies ready, but forgot the rest.   Doh!  So, I hope my project was worth the wait.


For my project this week, I used the adorable Rosie Posie digital stamp from Whimsy & Stars Studio.    She is just so sweet!   I had fun popping up the flower on her hat and adding some liquid pearls for some texture and interest.

Here is a closer look at Rosie.  I actually broke out my Stickles.  I usually forget to use them but thought they would be perfect on her tutu.

So what’s going on to keep me so busy lately?  Besides my job, I have lots of family stuff that I am trying to take care of.  The tendonitis in my daughter’s Achilles heel has not gotten better with rest so she is starting PT.    She also needs to sit out of summer camp and if we do anything with a lot of walking, she needs to be in a wheel chair to give the tendon time to heal.   So I have busily trying to come up with the “B” plan for her during the day while I am at work. 

My poor dog, Summer, has had another flair up of her vestibular disease.   I feel so bad for her.  Even though she is dizzy, she is determined to do everything that she usually does, which means she falls down a lot.  (Or I fall down trying to help her up and down the stairs and keep her on her feet.)

I’m also planning a party for my dad’s 70th birthday.  (You can see a picture that is only a couple years old of him here.)(And yes, I’m ashamed to admit he probably still can beat me in a foot race…)

So these things, along with life in general, have been keeping me out of my craft room and off my computer as much as usual.   Don’t worry, I’ll be back.  (In my head that is in my best Arnold voice.)  With a little luck, I’ll be in there busily crafting away as you are reading my post. 


Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
