Really working a lot of hours right now, love it but it does make one tired. When school starts up I will be back to normal hours.
I am working on a bear set that will have some digital stamp work included with it. It really is a lot of fun. I don't have any Copics yet but I do have my SU pens and they work but I hope I get some for my 40th B-day....lol... ;) I would also love to have a Big Kick Die cutting machine with some of the Nestabilities?? I think that is what they are called. Looking at all the cards have me drulling...lol.... I know I am not the only one.
Well bett get have to get ready for work.
Have a blessed day!!

I found some time last week-end to get this invite made for his graduation/18th birthday celebration. Well it took me till this Sunday to complete them inside and out and get them addressed to go out tomorrow, whew it's done!!!
Isn't he just too handsome? His name is Keenan. I took the picture outside our back yard.
I was inspired by a sketch that I saw somewhere....lol...sorry I don't remember where. And as to the theme of the card, well Keenan likes that sort of thing. As well as he just finished a Real Mens course for the young men. The theme for that is swords and shields. So any how it is fitting for him. I hand drew out a pattern and then, cut out each one. I have a pazzles machine but I haven't figured out how to put my paper piecings into it????
I do have new bears and will get them out soon.
Have a blessed evening!!

Oh, it feels like it has been to long since I posted my bears...I have been really busy at work and have made a few bears, but just didn't have the time to list them. I have even made my sons invitation cards for his graduation and 18th birthday celebration. I will show them later. ;)
I had to go and refigure my auctiva listing host as they have changed from free to a small fee every month...ugg!! It took me a while to get all the pictures I didn't need any more off, as you only get so much space to store.
Today is my day off and I have to work around the house and go grocery shopping, but I do hope to get to start a set of camping pages. I will share them when I get them done.
Hope you all have a blessed day!!!

I haven't posted anything in a week as I was camping then I forgot the camera in the 5th wheel...ugg! So I just retrieved it yesterday. I have also been working a lot of hours this last week, like 10 or more a day. I did however get a couple bears made and will be posting them soon.
Camping was a blast, except for the misquito's! If you didn't have bug gard on and have repelant burning you would get eaten alive. So I had to go and purchase a paper piecing from Lisa's Precious Piecings, and will be making a camping layout with them in it. But as you can see the place is beautiful. We camped just 10 miles from Leavenworth, Wa. The town is set in an old German town setting. And we did go to our favorite outdoor pub, Uncle Uli's, as I love dark german beer. They serve your dog water, as we had our pug with us. The mountains are just beautiful.
I have been researching the Copic Markers as of late and oh my gosh are they not too cool!! I have stamps, not a lot but a few and would like to find the time to make some cards. but I think that they are a must have. Would make a great 40th birthday present in Aug. I should hint....lol...
Well I am off today so I plan on yard work and then some scrappping later..... :)
Have a blessed day!!
