So how was your Monday? I have no complaints about mine. Yes, it was busy but not insanely so. I got stuff done and then after dinner I sat down and made a card and then just relaxed for bit. It’s nice to be able to do that, even though I always feel like there is something else I should be doing! LOL! Yes, my scary little brain is always working thinking about things that I need to get started on and finish. Never a dull moment inside my crazy head! LOL!

The card that I made last night is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch challenge. Here is what we are working with this week…

Mojo363

I wanted to show off the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper so I went with a subtle Halloween theme. The base for my card is Basic Black Card Stock. My background consists of a piece of the Motley Monsters DSP on the bottom and some Crushed Curry that I embossed with the Luck Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The next layer is a piece of Tangerine Tango on the left and another piece of the Motley Monsters DSP that I backed with a piece of Basic Black to make it a little sturdier. They are adhered to each other with SNAIL and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My two circles, the larger one from Crushed Curry and the smaller form Tangerine Tango, are cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. The October and 31 are from the Project Life Day to Day Photopolymer Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used my Black Stampin’ Write Marker to edge them. The large circle is adhered to the panel with SNAIL and across it is a piece of Basic Black with the right side flagged. A piece of White & Tangerine Tango Two Tone Trim is formed into a bow and adhered behind the smaller circle under a Stampin’ Dimensional. A fun yet subtle Halloween Card and if you add a sentiment would make a nice fall birthday or thank you card! There are some really neat patterns in the Motley Monsters DSP, I think it may be one of my favorites in the Holiday Catalog! I hope that you liked my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Thank you for taking some time out of your day to come by and see what I have been up to and enjoy your Tuesday! 🙂

A very happy Friday to you all! And a happy birthday to me! LOL! When I arrived home from work yesterday, there was a very nice little surprise waiting for me. I got some happy mail, all the way from my friend Carolyn in Australia! She sent me a lovely birthday card and some very delicious Tim-Tams.

Carolyn Birthday Card-WM

Isn’t that a cool card?! She really does make the neatest easel cards. And how appropriate is that mustache? LOL! I was also lucky enough to get my hands on the new iOS 8 software for the iPhone and iPad. I did mine in the morning and Andrew stopped by last night and did his. There are a few new features that are quite neat, like the ability to respond to a text message without leaving the app that you’re in. Siri is also vastly improved and if you have a 5S and your phone is plugged in, you can just say, “Hey Siri”, and she’s ready to go. Pretty cool stuff! My brother just happened to be on his way back from Chicago yesterday and took this very cool picture of the 9/11 Memorial as he was coming into New York and I just had to share it with you.

SouthwestJDK 9-11-2014

You can really see the lights from the memorial and I think the wing in the picture is pretty neat. Pretty strange to think that it’s been 13 years since that tragic day. And I can still tell you exactly what I was doing that entire day. Some things you just never forget.

Now on to happier things, like my card for the Fab Friday challenge. This time around it’s a color challenge…

Fab Fri 50 9-12-2014

Funnily enough, I actually did the card for the next Fab Friday challenge and had to quickly make this one last night. Sometimes my lack of sleep works against me. LOL! I have really been enjoying the Kraft Card Stock, so yes, you will be seeing a lot of that for the next few cards, and the heat embossing continues. The base for my card today is Whisper White Card Stock and I adhered a piece of Kraft to cover the entire front. On top of that is a piece of the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum leaving a little bit of the Kraft peeking out the left side. All of the stamps that I used on this card are from the Garden Party Stamp Set. My tag is a piece is a piece of Pool Party and I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Project Life Corner Rounder to round the bottom corners. The greeting is heat embossed in Calypso Coral Stampin’ Emboss Powder along with the small flowers and they are cut out with my Paper Snips. The larger flowers are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and again, cut out with Paper Snips. Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere them to the tag and a piece of Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon is threaded through the top of the tag and a piece of Gold Baker’s Twine is tied around it. To finish off the card, I put two strips of the Beach House Washi Tape on a diagonal in the upper right hand corner. Again, loving the Kraft Card Stock and I like the way the gold looks with the Pool Party and Calypso Coral. And there you have the correct card for the Fab Friday color challenge this time around. Take a few minutes to visit the blog and see what the other designers have come up with. And if you have a minute, make a card and upload it to the gallery so we can see your take on the color challenge. I hope that you enjoyed today’s post. Variety is the spice of life! Thanks so much for coming by, and make sure you enjoy your Friday! 🙂

So Very Happy Owl

Posted on

Hello my friends! I am very happy to report that the move went extremely well! Fred showed up at 8:00 and Andrew at 8:20, with Starbucks!! We got right to work and about 80% of my stuff is at the new place. Fred had to leave at 3:30 and Andrew was going to leave at 5:30, he had a BBQ to go to. He said that he didn’t want to leave me here to set up by myself and he stayed until 8:30. I always say how awesome he is and I love it when he proves me right! I couldn’t have done any of this without him and Fred! I’m so incredibly lucky to have the amazing friends that I have and am happy to sing their praises! Andrew will be back over later to help finish up and I’m going to see what I can get accomplished in the new craft space this morning! Speaking of the new craft space since it’s mostly set up I thought I would share a picture of it…

Craft Space Hahn

You can see that it’s a cozy space in a walk in closet of the living room. You can also see the color of the living room, and nice almost Coastal Cabana! I wanted something bright and cheery and I think I got it. Yes the shelves are filled with Stamp Sets, when I say that I have an addiction I don’t tell lies! LOL! I’m looking forward to getting in there and making something! The fireworks were going off again last night and little Winston was scared but he stayed still long enough for a little picture too…

Winston

Now on to today’s card which I actually made a while ago. It was a just for fun card because I wanted to use the Owl Builder Punch! I haven’t used it ages to make an actual owl! The card begins with a base of Real Red Card Stock and the background is a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the Dictionary Background Stamp in Bermuda Bay. Next up is a piece of “Vintage” Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper. The final layer is a piece of Whisper White that I drew a notebook page on with my Pool Party and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers. All of the corners are rounded with the “Vintage” 3/16″ Corner Rounder. The owl is punched out with the Owl Builder Punch, his body is Smoky Slate, his eyes are Whisper White, Pool Party and Basic Black and his vest is another piece of Kaleidoscope DSP. The greeting is from the So Very Happy Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and cut out with the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits. A piece of Pool Party is flagged and adhered behind it. The Owl and the greeting are mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A happy birthday card that uses some of my favorite Designer Series Paper ever, Kaleidoscope! I hope that you enjoyed the pictures and the card for today. Thanks so much for sharing in my day and I hope that you have a great Sunday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 142

Posted on

Morning already! I feel like I just went to bed! I had to run into Manhattan last night to help a friend with some computer issues and by the time I got home it was 11:20. I still had to make a card and type my post so I sat down at the craft desk, or what’s left of it, and got to work. It’s funny how I can get home that late and still look forward to making something. There was no packing last night however, pending the weather my friend Fred from work is going to come over and we are going to start moving the furniture later on today. Andrew is supposed to help too. Fingers crossed people that it doesn’t rain until the earliest Monday!

The card that I made when I got home last night is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Jennifer B….

Freshly Made Sketches #142

Thankfully it is a nice simple sketch! I started my card with some Very Vanilla Card Stock. The panel is one of the Project Life Everyday Adventure Journaling Cards that I trimmed and rounded the corner with the Project Life Corner Rounder. A strip of Bermuda Bay is embossed with the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered across the lower half of the card. I received my new plates for the Texture Boutique yesterday and I’m happy to report that they work great! I used the Circle Card Thinlits Dies to cut out some Crushed Curry for the chevrons and Bermuda Bay for the greeting. Some slivers of Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere them to the card. It needed a little something so I sprinkled some sequins around to finish off the card. I actually like the mix of different arrows/chevrons and love the colors together! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I really do appreciate you taking the time to visit with me and love reading your comments! I hope you all have a nice Thursday! 🙂

Paper Players 200 & Pics!

Posted on

Well, it was another gorgeous weekend here on Long Island! Sunny but not too hot just how I like it! I got lots of crafty things done yesterday and spent some time outside enjoying the weather. It was just too nice to be indoors all day! I hope the weather was nice by you and you got some outside time in too! Did you all enjoy the Creation Station Blog Tour yesterday? I hope that you got some inspiration for your new catalog goodies! I really need to order some of those Gift Card Holders, they are neat! Today I have some pictures for you! I did manage to take a few pictures while I was in Manhattan on Saturday. They are not very exciting but a little glimpse of what I get to see. The first one is of the elevated pedestrian walkway at Hunter College…

Hunter College

Pretty cool how it just goes across Lexington Avenue! The next one is of Bloomingdale’s which I’m sure you have all heard of…

Bloomingdales

Another Lexington Avenue Staple! It’s funny because before I went into the store I pictured it much bigger than it is. Next I took a really cool picture from under the Citibank Building…

Citibank Building

It’s one of my favorite buildings in the city. It’s on stilts! If you Google it you can see a lot of neat information about the construction. They had some problems in the beginning. I also like how the sun is reflecting off of the building next to it!

Remember the Blog Candy winner Karen? Well, she was so sweet and sent me a thank you card and a little gift! I love them both and think they are amazing! Here is the card and cute notepad using the Stamp Set A Happy Hooray that she won!

Karen TY Card

Karen Notepad

Thank you so much Karen! What a nice surprise to get in the mail! 🙂

Now we are on to today’s post. It’s for the Paper Players 200 challenge! Wow! I have been participating since challenge #78 and haven’t missed one! The ladies have chosen their favorites from the past 200 and you can then pick one of them! I went with the one that Nance choose…

Paper Players #200

I picked it because it was before I started playing! Yes, I used the Star Framelits again! LOL! I just can’t get enough of them! My card base is Basic Black Card Stock. The background is some Silver Foil Sheet that I embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The two stars are from the Be the Star Stamp Set and are stamped in Bermuda Bay and cut out with the Stars Framelits. I cut out a piece of Vellum Card Stock with the Circles Collection Framelits to back the star and make it stand out a bit more. My greeting is form the Pictogram Punches Stamp Set and is stamped in Bermuda Bay and cut out with the Project Life Card & Labels Framelits. I punched out another piece of Silver Foil Sheet with the star from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to go over the star on the greeting. All of the elements are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really am loving the Star Framelits (promise I’ll put them aside for bit! LOL!) and the Bermuda Bay with the silver and black is a great combination, don’t you think?! I really hope that you enjoy my card for this week’s Paper Players 200 anniversary sketch challenge. Thank you very much for coming by to see what I’ve been up to and I hope you have a great Monday! 🙂

Finally, it’s Friday! Woo-hoo! I had a nice day at work yesterday. My friend and co-worker Danielle and I went out for lunch for the first time ever! We had pizza and a nice chat. It rained here in the morning but cleared up around noon and it’s supposed to be beautiful through the weekend! I came home after work and busted open my rather large box from Stampin’ Up! containing some serious new Catalog goodies! I had a nice fun few crafty hours and then I remembered that it was time to select the blog candy winner! Conveniently Andrew was here so we wrote all 66 names down on pieces of paper and put them into a bowl. He insisted on doing the selection the old fashioned way! I mixed them up really good and he selected one. Drumroll please… and the winner is Karen!! Please click the contact me link above and send me your address so I can mail your new Stamp Set out to you! Thank you all for leaving the comments. It meant more than you can know to read them all. You truly are the best people in the world! In the end I am the real winner!! 🙂

Not only is today a good Friday because it was blog candy day, but it’s also a Fab Friday week! This week we have a fun sketch for you…

Fab Fri 43 6-06-2014

I did manage to mount some of the stamps and unwrap some of the accessories so that’s what I used on my card. The base of the card is Bermuda Bay Card Stock and my background is a piece of Baked Brown Sugar that I embossed with the Tiny Triangles Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The strip across the middle is Crisp Cantaloupe and both the background and the strip are adhered with Fast Fuse Adhesive. The “HEY” is cut out using the new Little Letters Thinlits from Bermuda Bay and each letter is propped onto the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Under that, I stamped the other part of my greeting from the And Many More Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay. The three arrows on the right hand side are punched out from Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush with the new What’s Up Punch. To finish off the card, I used a strip of Washi Tape from the Everyday Adventure Project Life Accessory Pack and placed it above my greeting. I love all the geometric shapes on the card and yes, I had a ton of fun with some of my new goodies! I hope you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge. Head on over to the blog to see the rest of the designers projects and upload yours to the gallery! Have a Fantastic Friday peeps! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 137 & Bonus!

Posted on

I was hoping that Friday would be a nice easy day but alas that was not meant to be. They are building out he warehouse at work and my department got to move boxes around all day. I haven’t been to the gym in a while but I definitely feel like I went yesterday! It was overcast all day and rained last night. I did go to IHOP with Anthony and Bill for dinner. I haven’t had IHOP in ages. I was good and got the low calories pancake and eggs. I do love  a little breakfast for dinner! I came home and watched a movie and then just relaxed. It was a good way to end a busy day. What do all of you have planned for this long weekend? I’m playing it by ear. 🙂

I have my Freshly Made Sketches sketches card for this week’s challenge for you today. There is also a bonus card at the end of the post! This week’s sketch is given to us by Jen M….

Freshly Made Sketches #137

A very simple sketch so I stayed true to it with my card. The base is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Hello Honey that I embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Across the lower part of the card is a piece of Moonlight Designer Series Paper. I love how nicely the embossing folder and the paper go together. My greeting is from the Everyday Occasions Card Making Kit and is stamped in Lost Lagoon. I used the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits to cut it out. It’s backed with some Basic Gray and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Two butterflies that I punched out from Lost Lagoon with the Bitty Butterfly Punch are adhered to the right of the greeting. Simple card with some of my favorite new In-Colors and DSP. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Scroll down a little to see my extra card for you for today. Thank you so much for dropping by, have a great Saturday! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 93

Posted on

Apparently either I got the weather wrong or the weather man did! It was another lovely day here yesterday, cooler but beautiful. I think they said the rain was supposed to start sometime today and then again on Friday. Work was nice again today, I usually have a little morning chat with my boss when she comes in and I have come to really enjoy it. When I got home last night I made a card and then went out an ran some errands. I needed to get some lunch for the rest of the week and pick up a new screen protector for my watch. The rest of the evening was quiet, which is always nice.

Today is Wednesday and that means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew for our sketch challenge…

PCCCS093 Sketch 5-14-2014

I had a little fun with the sentiment on today’s card and you’ll appreciate it when you see it! My card base is Basic Black Card Stock and the background is a piece of Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper. The tag, lower flag and Love circle are all from the Project Life Everyday Adventure Card Collection and the Accessory Pack. I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Whisper White to back the love and the two more from Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzaz. The Friday is from the Project Life Day to Day Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Black. I used the Angled Tag Topper Punch on the journaling card and trimmed a little off the bottom. An Essentials Wooden Elements triangle is at the top. I also cut out a piece of adhesive cork sheet with the Circles Collection Framelits and slipped it behind the tag. All of the elements are adhered to the card and each other with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the nice bright colors and patterns in the Project Life set and the way the triangle and cork oppose all of the modern geometric elements. You can also see why I said that I had fun with the greeting, Love Friday, yes I do! LOL! A fun card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge, don’t you think?! Make sure and go over to the blog to check out the other projects from the rest of the design team and enter your card in the gallery so we can see your interpretation of the sketch. Love having you visit with me, thanks! Enjoy your day everyone! 🙂
