Adding to todays post

I forgot to add this and really wanted to share it. My husband went to NY for a family reunion this past weekend, while he was there he saw some rhubarb in his cousin's garden, he remembered me reminising about my Grama's rhubarb pie, rhubarb does not grow here in Tenn because of the heat, so he asked if he could bring me back enough for a pie. I made 2 yesterday, oh the memories, my grama has been gone for a few years now, but she will always be with me in my memories and tastebuds. I'm going to bring 1/2 a pie to my parents and the other half to my husbands parents, I'm getting big points today :)


Updating files

I've not had much crafty time, I'm worrying about my fathers surgery tomorrow, and I'm also trying to update all my files, I have hundreds of them. At Paperthreads we decided we needed to go ahead and add SVG files for those that have Cricuts and want our files. So I'm going through all my files and converting them to add SVG files, also some of my earlier files still only have GSD files, so I'm trying to add WPC, AI, KNK and SVG to them also. If I have any files you want to purchase at Paperthreads and they are not converted, let me know and I'll go ahead and convert them either before or after you purchase them. I'm updating them little by little, it's not hard to do, just time consuming. Anyway, that's my life for now. Hope you are having a great week!!

another week

My fathers surgery was postponed for another week, he's now scheduled for 7/30 in the early morning, so we have another week of waiting to go. One of the paperthreads designers sent me this video, it was so cute, and kept me smiling/laughing the whole time it was playing I thought I'd share it in case you needed a smile too.

Have a great weekend,

Life is getting in the way

I'm just kidding, but it does seem like there is very little time for me to play with my stamps and scrapbook pages right now. I'm having some family health issues right now that is causing me some stress and anxiety, my father goes in for open heart surgery tomorrow. My daughter was hit in her car and we are trying to sort out that mess. Trying to get my son a job and in school (automotive college) this fall. We were supposed to go on vacation this week, but that too fell through. Enough whining about my problems, here is a card I made using The Angel company papers and stamp. Stamp is from "Little Cupcake" serendipity idea book, paper is from Pop Rocks collection, and the circles are from my KNK , whenever I do a lot of circles and scallopes I do it on my knk, I really hate punching stuff out.

Have a great rest the week, I'll post when I can, probably next week.

Aquarium Layout

I used all paper from PaperTemptress this paper cuts like a dream, you can see in my layout I had some very fine lines that I cut in this paper, and it cut beautifully like butter. The only thing I inked was the starfish, I blacked the eyes in some of the fish, and that was the only embellishing I did other than using the paper. You can't see it in the pictures, but the shimmer is so pretty especially with the fish. I do have this collection for sale in .gsd, wpc, ai, knk and svg at, but I will give you one free file so you can see how this cuts when using this awesome paper.
Colors used all text weight, cut in klick-n-kut with 150 pressure, and 250 speed
glimmer juniper berry
cappuccino metallic
aquamarine mica/metallic
sapphire mica/metallic
white gold mica/metallic
serpentine mica/metallic
lagoon mica/metallic

Not very creative this week

Wow,I'm having a great week, Monday and Tuesday I kept my grandson, and he was SOOOOO good, we had a ball. Today I went with his other grama to the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere. Tempature was around 81 degrees, all the animals were out (it's more like a wildlife preserve than a zoo) and Zachary just seemed amazed, we walked about 50 miles jk, and I took a ton of pictures, I'll have to upload them and see how they turned out.

I also got the new TAC inspiration book and have already found enough to place a order, anyone in the Clarksville Area if you want to host a Workshop, we can make some cards for $5.00 and if you order $50 or more in the catalog, I'll get you a free catalog, Also if you want to be a in 3 month TAC group, you'll get a free catalog, no workshop, just send me a $33 order each month, and one month you get to be the hostess, and get the hostess set, and a half price item.
