We will be leaving on Wednesday for Utah to see our son and their newest addition to their family. There is a little granddaughter that we haven't seen yet and of course their son that I used to watch alot when they lived close so it will be good to see them. We will be staying for the 4th of July. I am not sure if I will be able to post while we are there. I am hoping to get a couple of things done before we leave but we will see with all of the last minute things that need to be done.
I don't have any children left at home but I do have my mother living with us and she has a regular check-up with the doctor before we leave and then laundry and all the other good things when you take a trip. The good thing is that we will be there the same night of the day we leave. It is still a long drive. It will be worth it to see the kids.
You came here to see what project I have done. I struggle with masculine cards. This card was make for my husband's brother-in-law. His birthday is the 5th so I needed to get it mailed before we leave. I am not sure if I like how it turned out. Actually it wasn't what I first had planned but this is what I ended up with. It is about a 4x4 card. I had a piece of cardstock in my stash and instead of cutting any more I just used it. I think he will appreciate it. Just the idea that we remembered he will like.
I was a little winded this time.
Thanks for stopping by and have a very good day!!

Hello everyone!! This is my first blog hop and I am excited about it. I was at my daughter's for last months. It was so much fun seeing what everyone had done. So I thought I would do this month and join in on the fun. Since this month's theme was summer, picnics just came to mind and was so glad when my shipment came in so I could use my "Vintage Picnic" set. My first full size quilt was a red, white, and blue that I use for picnics and the park so that was my inspiration for this one. It isn't the design I did but I like the ideas of the stars so I might just have to make one like this one.
Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great night!!

I went out in my patio one morning and saw this running across. I tried to get a picture of it then but he took off. I thought he was gone until my husband opened the garage yesterday to get his motorcycle out and this came up to his heel. We tried to chase him out but in ran back in and hid somewhere so we closed the garage and figured he would get out somehow. This afternoon when he opened the garage he was hanging on the door. Our grandsons was chasing him and it was like he posed for me to take a picture. But the silly thing ran back into the garage and is still there until another day. Hopefully not too long!!
Have a great day!!
Hope I will be able to get in the craft room soon. Until later.

I made this card for the Whiff of Joy Challenge. I am cutting it close so I am hoping I get it in on time. I don't have this stamp (yet) but one of my daughters does and the one that is coming to visit stamped some when she was at her house and she gave me a couple to color. Isn't he adorable!

Hello everyone!! How was your weekend. I didn't get to do all the crafty that I was hoping for. I gave hubby his Father's Day present a week early. I bought him a couple of accessories for his Harley. Since they needed to be put on I gave him a "little help" yesterday. By the time we got done it was time to make dinner and we wanted to watch a movie. We watched "Gran Torino", great movie! I sure didn't expect the ending it had. Today it was a half way decent day so we took a short ride on the Harley.
Since I just received this little guy I wanted to ink him up and better reason that for a challenge over at Whimsy Stamps. I think he is so adorable. At least I was able to get this done this weekend. I will be inking him up again real soon.
I will be back later to give you the details on what I used, I want to get him posted over at Whimsy since the challenge is for tomorrow.
See you later!!

Happy Saturday everyone!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend planned. I am going to get some crafting in. My husband going to work on a storage for my copics. It is so wonderful to have a handy man around. He builds them and then I finish it. It tells everyone that he puts them together and then I make them pretty. But if he didn't do such a good job no matter what I did to it, it wouldn't look that good. He has built a few pieces of furniture for the house and even for my craft room. I show him what I like and he tries to build it. (Our kids even do that or throw hints at what they would like). I like the idea of homemade things. Just think of all the heirlooms that will be passed down to our kids and grandkids (even more than what they already have).
Today's project is a little puff box that I found over at Splitcoast Stampers. It is one that I didn't download the instructions figuring that I could go and do it without them. Well wouldn't you know it, when I went to make it I didn't do it right and so I had to put it aside until I looked at the instructions again. Once I did that it was so simple and easy to put together. Wouldn't these be so cute for party favors or just a small token for a thank you! I know I will be making more of these.
Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great weekend.
Supplies: Stamps, CD for template, Ribbon for closure, Glossy CS

This is a little butterfly basket I made for my granddaughter. She is graduating from 8th grade today and thought this was cute to put a little gift in it for her.
I found the template to make this at Toys Haven. It is so easy to put together.
There was no stamping with this one. I just added a few emblishments to it.
Have a wonderful and we'll see you tomorrow!!
