Wanted to share some pictures with everyone to help explain some of my absence in the past several months.
First I had a total hip replacement in June and Tuesday of this week I opened a family store in the small town where I live and my niece and I are working it. We had help from nephew and his wife too. They are gone now so she and I have it all alone now. So very long hours and hurting feet at the end of the day.
I moved all my card making and scrapbooking things here and will be selling some supplies and having classes. Also selling my card as well.
Here are the pics. Enjoy and so excited to finally get this endeavor up and going.

First thing I want to do is thank all our participates of our challenges. We have more and more each week and we are loving it.
Thank you !!!!!!!!
This week’s challenge was an impossible one for me. The challenge is to use your favorite stamp. Out of all of the wonderful stamps in Digi Doodle Shop, to have a favorite is not possible. I heard so many of the Digi Doodle Shop’s Best design team say the same thing. So I just picked one I loved and made this card with it.
I took the picture outside in the HOT sunshine. I love the flowers and the shadow they made on the card.
I colored the card with my Copic markers and cut the image and the pattern paper with my rectangle deckle nestie. It is my favorite of the nestibilities that I have.
Digi Doodle Shop is having a great special this month and I want to invite everyone to jump on over there and take advantage of this great special.
so here are the links

The challenge this week is, Punch Me, create using punches or die cuts. I can’t wait to see what all the other DT have created.
I used one of the single butterflies from the set of Butterfly and Cherry Background paper. I colored with my Copic Markers. I used the Spellbinder die cuts #1 in graduated sizes and used designer paper from PTI and cards stock from SU. I did do something different here and that is to use my white gel pen to make accenting dots. I love the dimension that this gives. Hope you all enjoy !!!!
Check out the other Design Team’s creations and link your creations so that we can enjoy them and leave you some love!

For my card I chose the cherry background paper and the cherry stamp which comes all in the same bundle ( here is the link ). This also comes with a butterfly background paper and a single butterfly stamp to go with it. And believe it or not the whole set is only $1.88 for the month of July. Except for some custom stamps, some stamps are 50% off for the rest of the month of July. So now is the time to get some of the stamps on your wish list.

Yesterday I forced myself to create something. I had these 2 beautiful stamps from Digi Doodle Shop already colored with my Copics and thought a piece of my new October Afternoon “Fly A Kite” paper looked good with them. So I made 2 cards using the same papers. The polka dot dolie and square I cut with my Cricut using Papertrey Ink “Bitty Dot Basics”. Cards are 4 1/4 X 4 1/2
So I do believe my mojo is on its way back.

So that means WOYWWAC. I do enjoy snooping and looking at everyone’s work space. Mine is not very interesting lately because my mojo for right now is gone and haven’t made in any thing in several days. I finally got the wonder paper from October Afternoon – Thift Shop and Fly a Kite and now I am in a slump…. here are a few shots of my craft room this morning.
my work space and can see a sheet of that October Afternoon paper
the other end of long desk where printer, big shot and the paper cutter are…… the white basket is where cardstock scraps are and they are in plastic bags according to colors…..
right behind me is my Cricut and some wire baskets and then you can see the bay window looking out into my back yard……
So get your cameras out take your pictures and link them up for all of us to snoop around…..

We also have a great sponsor for this sketch. Sew Many Cards is a digital stamp store.
Here is a little bit more from the owner of Sew Many Cards:
My name is Angela and I own Sew Many Cards. I have a husband, an almost 10year old daughter, a two year old son, and a dog/puppy: Hershey. The images of Sew Many Cards came from a dream that my husband had of a group of animals that were """ SEWN Together" with patches and stitching, hence the name, which he also came up with. You will find that every image in the Sew Many Cards collection has patches and stitching, even the ones that are not animals. I love to draw and almost every image is either an inspiration from my family or a request from my great customers and design team, so please ask if you need something specific or would like to request something be made. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For my card I used the cute image of Duncan with Owen. The images just says to me “I love you this much” and I was thinking about Father’s Day .
I colored Duncan and Owen with my Copic Markers and cut them out using my deckle rectangle nestie. The card base is SU More Mustard and the patterned paper is from Making Memories – Just Chilling 6X6 pack. The sentiment I created and printed. I applied Old Paper-Ranger Distressed Ink around all edges.
So now it is your turn to create a card or creation using Leigh Ann’s sketch # 19 and then link it up and lets us see your creation and good luck with winning the great images from Sew Many Cards.
For inspiration go on over and check out the great creations some of the DT made for you this time.

Operation Write Home is having this blog hop this weekend so that in some small way we can show our appreciation and admiration to all those who have and are serving our country. Our freedom does NOT come cheap or easy. Everyday that price is paid for us. Words are just not enough to convey my thanks for all that has been done and will continue to be done for OUR freedom.
Our red, white, and blue flag with that lonely figure looking off in the distance with thoughts of that loved one who is away from her. What a sacrifice both are making for me and for you.
I will be sending this card to one person who comments on my blog during the blog hop. If you would like to have this card please let me know when you comment and I will draw a winner at the end of blog hop and will mail it to you.
Operation Write Home's Mission is -
To support our nation’s armed forces by sending blank greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.

This card I made using an stamp from Digi Doodle Shop. I loved it for a Father’s Day card and when my grandson asked me to make him one to give to his dad I knew this was the image.
Another card for Father’s Day or male birthday … there is no sentiment so can be used for anything.
this is a digi stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil ……
and another card from Mo’s Digital Pencil that I am sending to my brother ….. just because I want to say I love you !!!!!
and one more card that is a male birthday card…. A friend of mine at my Tuesday night group had extra making for this card and she shared with me so here is the free card.
