My Heart is Yours

Hello!  I have another card to share with you today.  I made this last week when I was able to sneak off to my craft room for a while.


2014-02-03 M VD Card WM


It was a really busy week.  My daughter played the clarinet at Band-O-Rama on Wednesday.  I was so proud of the kids. They all did a great job.  (Although I have to say I won’t miss her practicing the best of Queen on the clarinet.  Some things, like Queen and clarinets, just don’t go together.)     We also found out she was picked as a “Taste Agent” for Skratch Labs.  It is her first sponsorship/endorsement for fencing.  Yeah!  Mix in basketball practice, drama rehearsals, cheerleading for the boy’s basketball team, and playing the piano, she is one busy kid.   (I’ll take this moment to brag she is also on Honor Roll.)  I asked her if she like being so busy and if she was sure she wanted to participate in so many activities and I received a resounding “Yes!”.    As long as she keeps her grades up, I’m okay with it.

My job has been keeping me really busy all winter.  The new job I took last year is in logistics.  With all the terrible weather we have had across the country this year, it has really kept me on my toes and has cut into my crafting time.  I hope the groundhog was wrong and we see spring, and some better weather, soon.

That’s it for this week.  I’ll leave you with another look at my card.  Have a great week!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

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…
