Hi guys.
Are you having a good start to your week? I have to admit that mine is going very well. I might have mentioned that I actually signed today and tomorrow off, so I am in a very good mood this morning. I just need to meet up with my Sister today to take the kids school clothes shopping. (not really looking forward to the hours that will take up, but) It is going to be worth it in the end. heehee....
I thought that as the kids are heading back to school that I would make them both cards for the first day back. Mitchell and Madison are both in 7th grade this year, so I wanted to make them a card that would reflect more of a teenager feel to it. :D
So, to start off I wanted to show you the card that I made for Madison. After all ladies first. heehee... Getting back to it. This card was made with Download Diva from KennyK... I have to say that I am liking these digis. They have quite the variety, and they are digis so you can make them any size you would like. I was also able to incorporate music notes into my card as both my kiddies are very much into music (the Beatles, Justin Bieber, Anything Glee....and so on). They tend to take after Jerry and I both when it comes to loving a variety on music. They are also both into Chior at school, so I figured that this would work out so well. You can check out all of KennyK's digi stamps here.
Wow, it just accorded to me that I don't have to say that I need to get ready for work. All I have to do is enjoy the quiet on this early morning and check out all of my blog friends' blogs. heehee....I might even get a few minutes to color some of my newest additions. The wonderful Oh Baby set from the Greeting Farm. I was able to pick this set up at Farmers Market, and I am sooooo happy that I did.
Well, until tomorrow! Have a super day and I will talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs, Lisa G

Hi guys.
Well, here we are again. It is Monday. Can you believe how fast this year is going bye? I hate to say it, but we only have four more months left in it. I have no idea where times goes...
I know that it is going fast and that school is just about to start, but I really had to make this card this weekend. I used none other than CC Tuesday to make a cute Halloween card. She just looks so cute with her crown and her combat boots on. It makes me think that she is a total tomboy and she is being made by her Mom to wear a princess outfit for Halloween. Being the good girl that she is she goes ahead with the Princess outfit, but she sure puts her own spin on it... Hence the boots and the green (fatigue green) tutu... After all a mom can not get mad when she is trying so hard. Right?! heehee What can I say, this is how I see this sweet little Tuesday.
After I colored her up I decided that she would be so perfect for the Farm Fresh Friday Challenge over at the Greeting Farm. I just loved the sketch this week. You can check out the details here. I am sure that you will love all of the talent going on over there. Give it a go if you haven't already.
Ok guys. It is Monday and you all know by now what that means... Yep, I am heading off to work so I had better skedaddle....Have a super great day, and I will talk at you tomorrow... Oh, I almost forgot.... Did you watch the awards last night? Didn't you just hate it when Glee did not win for best Comedy? Ggggrrrr! I did however just love the opening act... It was so great and we were all just sitting here laughing so hard. Ok, now I really have to get going. :D

Good morning guys.
I sure hope your weekend it off to a good start. I have a few errands to run this morning then I will have the rest of the day to do whatever I want to do... That is of course until my kids decide what I am going to be doing. heehee
Have you guys been over to the Color Me Copic blog lately? If not be sure to check them out. All of those girls are so talented and they share all of their ideas and techniques. You will just love it. This week Amy Young has put together a video tutorial on how she colors curly hair...WOW, is it a great video and I just had to try it out. On top of all of their talent sharing they are (along with All That Scraps.) also giving away a couple of stamps to two different people that play along with the challenge this week. As if that is not enough the stamps are from Amy's Sweet November Stamps. We are talking new stamps that are not even out yet....Can you think of a better reason to head over? I sure can't...
I sure had fun giving this a go. I used the CC Friday from TFG because she has the best hair. Then I decided that she would look adorable with a skirt on so she is paired up with CC Monday's body. I have to say that I really am quite please with her. Of course she is not as good as Amy's but I will keep practicing. I used basically the same colors that Amy's used in the tutorial just to get used to the technique then I intend to branch out from there. Thanks so much for the great ideas girls. You are all just fantastic.
Well, I am going to get a move on so that I can enjoy the rest of my weekend. I hope you all have a great one too. Talk at you later...Lisa G

Hi guys. Please meet Maggie. Isn't she just adorable? Let me just say (before I get a ton of phone calls from my family) No, she is not ours... :0( Not that I would not love to have her. She belongs to one of the ladies that works in the clinic where I work. Her Mommy says that she loves to play in the water and the mud as well. I though that you might like to meet her as she is just too adorable. I also have to confess that I could not find the rest of my pictures that I took of all my work from last week, so I decided to share Maggie with you instead.
She is so loved that she has a pink collar and a matching leash too. What more could an adorable Labrador want? heehee Ok guys, have a super great Friday. I am hoping to get those pictures up for the weekend, so be sure to check back later.
Hugs, Lisa G

Hi guys.
I sure hope that you are all having a great week. As always I am headed to work, but at least today is my Friday.... Don't get me wrong, I don't mind work. I mean after all the more I work the more Copics and stamps I can buy. heehee... Just joking.
It has been super sunny around here, but you can sure tell that the seasons are changing. It has been cool enough in the evenings that we don't even have the air on. Then in the morning as I am leaving for work the grass has a nice cool dew on it. I do love fall, but I am missing all of our pool time.
However fall is in the air. Summer is trying to hang on, so I felt the need to make a lazy days of summer kind of card. I just could not resist this sweet digi from All That Scraps. I have been seeing this Nora all over blog land and I just had to have her. Isn't she just adorable? I think she looks so happy laying in the green grass enjoying those last rays of summer sunshine...
I think that I need to get me some of that warm sunshine this weekend. Keep your fingers crossed that our summer holds out just a little longer. I am planning on getting just a little more swimming in before we have to get the pool ready for winter. (That is the part that I hate about a pool) Oh, well you can't have one without the other.
Ok, have a great day and I will talk at you tomorrow.

Hi guys,
Just wanted to share a picture that I took of Lucy just after we had our Internet back. We were busy cleaning the house and I came out into the living room to see Lucy like this. It just made us all laugh. She looks like she is watching whatever was on the screen, but I think she must have seen a bug on the wall or something. She has been know to actually stop to watch TV when we have it on. Who knows with her.. heehee...
Have a good one.
Hugs, Lisa G


Hi guys.
Happy Wednesday to ya!
Wow, we are halfway through this week already. It seems bittersweet to me however. I am supper excited as I have a three day weekend starting Friday and then I will be off Tuesday and Wednesday (mini V.A.C.A.T.I.O.N for me) next week to get school clothes for the kiddies and to be home on their first day back. What can I say they may be 7th graders, but they are very happy to still have me be there for them. I love that about both of them. Everyone keeps telling me that it will end soon, and I am sure that they are probably right but I am so going to enjoy my babies (12 & 13) until then. lol....
Ok, I will move on. My card today was actually made by both Madison and myself for a friend at work. Her Granddaughter is going to be in 2nd grade this year and she wanted a card to send to her. Well, last weekend Maddie and I drug out my Cricut and went to town. It was so fun to use both my Cricut and my Copics in one project! Maddie was in charge of the cutting out and then I put it all together and decided that the books needed words...I used up some rub-ons that I have had forever and some little black buttons that my Sister just gave me. I then put the gold star button (also given to me by my sis.) on the inside because if you are in 2nd grade you sooo have to have a gold star. lol... I am very happy to report that my friend was very pleased with the card and both Madison and I were too.
Well, as always I am off to get this day underway so that I can get to that weekend. ASAP! heehee...
Have a super day.

I'm BACK!!!!

Hi guys.
I can not tell you how much I have missed you. I didn't think that I used the Internet that much, but boy did I feel cut off from the world... :D I am so happy to be able to visit all of you and see your wonderful creations. It is going to take me a while to get around to everyone, but I will. I am also excited to share all of the fun projects that I have been working on.
So with that said lets get to it. I thought that I would kind of start the week off with the most recent card that I have put together. I just had to use my newest edition, Miss CC. Friday. (Thank you again to the Greeting Farm) I won her and all of the new releases! WOW, can you believe how generous they are. Ok, getting back to it. This is for the Sketch for You To Try, that TGF is sponsoring on Jen Del Muro's Blog. She put up this sketch and I just think it rocks. So, this is my version of it. (hope you like it).
Well, as is always the case I am in a hurry to get to work. Got to make money for more stamps. heehee....Have a great day all. It sure feels good to be back.

Hi guys, this is going to be uber quick! I will be without my Internet for the next week, as we are changing who we get it through and they neglected to tell us that it would take that long. :( Can you here the tears falling... I will miss everyone. However, I will be making goodies that I can not wait to share with you...See you soon. (hopefully in less than a week!) Hugs, Lisa G

Hi guys.
Happy Wednesday to all of you. I have a half day at work today, so I am in a great mood. I love getting off work by 1pm and having time to be with my children before dinner and bedtime have to be addressed. lol...I know I have mentioned that I love summer vacation and having my kids at home. I just can not believe that in three weeks my babies will be back at it once again. Can someone please...tell me where or were the summer has gone? It's still very nice here, but I just can not believe that it is time for school..
Well as I have mentioned more than once I love anything cupcake and ice cream cones. They just make me want to smile. So....yes, I decided to make a very simple but super sweet card using some of my Dazzels by Provo Craft...I have to apologize though because somehow I have lost my card that lists what I used both Copic marker wise and SC or DP.
Ok guys, we just got back from our morning walk that we have all decided we need to do, so I have to hit the showers and get ready for work. I have always enjoyed the early morning and how wonderful it smells while most of the neighborhood is still tucked in bed. heehee Wow, I do have to admit that getting up to exercise sure helps get your blood flowing and your energy level up. It seems to also add to my already weird sense of Have a great day. Talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs, Lisa G

Good morning everyone. Did you have fun on the hop yesterday? I haven't had anytime yet, but I am so looking forward to seeing every bodies wonderful baby cards. If you didn't get to finish the entire blog hop yet don't worry, you still have until 8-14 to get it done. Good luck everyone. Last night when I got home from work I had an email telling me that Kris did indeed have her little boy. Congratulations Kris. I hope that you and the family are doing well. What a gift!
Well today I made a card for Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly Sketch challenge. I have to admit that I only have one stamp from TPS, but I am hoping to win this wonderful challenge as the winner gets a $50 gift certificate to use at their store...(Toes, Fingers, legs.. all Crossed. lol) I would so love to have all of their stamps. A girl can dream! I will get back down from the clouds now and tell you about my card today. I decided to use my Lil Lolita- 80's Sookie that I won from the awesome Tickled Pink Stamps. I have her in rubber and I love to have all my stamps in rubber, but I saw on Amy Y's blog how she had blown up her Lil Lolita and I thought (hmmmm, now I could do that.) So, I stamped her on some regular CS then I scanned her into my computer so that I could play with her size. I just love her eyes, and really wanted to play with them. I must admit that I just had so much fun coloring Sookie and then putting some very fun zingers (bling I won on the fabulouse Miss Angela's blog.) on her card just to show how happy she truly is. lol....Ok, I got to get a move on. Thanks so much for stopping bye. Have a super day. Hugs, Lisa G

Hi guys.
I sure hope you all had a terrific weekend. Mine was a quick one, but a really fun one. We were even able to spend some time swimming in the pool yesterday. It has been hot enough, but the wind loves to blow here in Moses Lake, so you don't always want to take the cover off just to have everything end up in the Picky, picky, I know! :D
Well, today we are having a blog hop over at Lollipop Crafts. It is for our wonderful and very pregnant friend Kris... In fact we are thinking that she is possibly having her baby right now. The theme is to make a baby card...preferably a boy one as that is what she is having. So if you came to me from Leanne Poe then you are on the right track. If not you can always head over to the Lollipop Crafts Blog if you get lost along the way. The blog hop ends on 8/14/10 at 8:oopm PST. The winner will be announced on Sunday 8/15/10 over at Lollipop Crafts. We hope that you can hop along with us. It's sure to be loads of fun. I hope you enjoy my card. I used one of the very first stamps that I ever purchased. I also used some velum that I have had in my stash for several years now. heehee. I just love it when I get the chance to use up that paper that I love but have never touched.
Alright guys, I hope that you enjoy the hop. Your next stop is Barbara. Be sure to show her your love. She is super talented, and I know you are going to just love her creation. Until tomorrow. Hugs, Lisa G

Hi guys.
Just a quick one this morning. Have to work! I am sure by now that you all have heard that Amy Young has used 1000 sheets of DP this last year and with is coming only two short weeks after her blog-aversary she has decided once again to give some wonderful CANDY!
Thanks for sharing Amy, both your talents and your great stamps and paper. :D
Well, I have to get a move on. Be sure to stop by her awesome blog and share your love... Have a great start to your weekend.

Hugs, Lisa G

Let me just say sorry for all the photos. I was trying to get a better view of the glitter on the cupcake and the ribbons. For some reason it would not let me delete the set of photos that I didn't want to use. Sorry!

Good morning all.
I hope that you are all doing well. I am have to make this quick again this morning, as once again I am running behind. Gggrrrrr! I am not sure why, but I have not been able to get to bed any earlier than one o'clock every night this week. Of course I still need to be up early for work, sooooo I am dragging a little. I have to say that I am usually the one person with the exception of my Son that can go to bed and be out in a matter of minutes. Needless to say this is driving me buggy.. Oh well, what's a girl to do? heehee....
Ok, getting to my card this morning. Well, I just had to color up Cupcake Anya. She is one of the awesome stamps that I won from The Greeting Farm this week and she is just so darn adorable! I wasn't aware until I was posting this card that I seem to be in a pink and yellow mood. lol...(Not my normal colors) Maybe I am still just so excited about winning all those stamps that the colors are coming from my mood when I see the stamps. heehee.
Well I better get a move on. Don't want to be late for work. I hate that! So guys, have a great day and I will talk at you tomorrow.

Hi guys.
Well, as you can see I am running super behind this morning. I am about 25 minutes away from hitting the road and I still have to do my hair and iron my clothes. So, with that being said I will get right to it. My card today is for the Monday Mania Challenge over at CA&F. If you don't already know about it, you should check it out here. I used the super cute SuperStar Anya and put the Mom head on her from Mom and Dad. I just love her sweet face, and if I ever get ambitious I am going to open her eyes up. heehee...
Ok, I better hit it. I think I will come back and add my supplies tonight. Until then, have a great day. Hugs, Lisa G
