Back w/a Little Something

I've been wanting to craft and post for a while but the last week and a half I've been pretty down and out with two separate hospital trips and mandatory bedrest so not much has been done.

I did manage to get a few challenges done in one card tonite though - it's the first time I've felt crafty in a while so I don't say it is my best work but it definitely felt good to be doing something again!!! This card is for the following challenges:


Kenny K‘s Krafty Girlz - Embossing

Friday Sketcher‘s - Weekly Sketch

Stamp Something - Digi Stamp

Stamp It Crazy - Girly Girly

Scrap-It Creations - Gotta Go Digi

And a close up of my Kenny K Digi Girl Delore's D'ammage, she is so schmexy!!! I have to admit I've not been a huge fan of digi images in the past. I found Kenny K digi images when I went to the Copic Certification Class a few weeks ago and met one of the girls on his DT and boy did I fall in love with them!!! While being sick, I had asked my daughter to go to the site and download the monthly freebie so I could try them out and she saw all the gorgeous girlz and bought me 5 of them!!! I was so tickled and thankful, she really made my day with them even though it was a few days before I could print any out and play with them!!! Regardless, I am hooked. I just wish I could afford to get more but after two hospital trips I will be limited to the 5 she got me (yeah, that is 5 more than I would have had if she hadn't been so sweet right? LOL) until we get all the hospital bills paid off but once that happens, I am def gonna grab me a few more, there are about 7 more that I am just really really really wanting and then of course I'd love to have them all!!!

Update from our Texas trip:

Was a great trip but way to short unfortunately. On Saturday morning we met my parents at a little cafe in Midlothian for breakfast then back to their house for a little nap - we got off at 7 p.m. on Friday night, picked up the kids and drove straight through so we were a tad exhausted! Got up and went with my Mom and Cait to The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie - man it felt good to visit a great scrap store again. We met my BFF from high school's daughter and her boyfriend there then went back to my parents house where my BFF from high school came out to visit and then we all went out to eat Mexi food - yeah baby, Tex Mex how I miss thee!!!! Sunday morning it was up for breakfast with my parents then off to Springtown to meet up with Rob's family for his dad's retirement party from BNSF. Lots of family and friends and amazing food along with some great visiting then off to bed and up to head back home on Monday morning. So, as you see, a short but definitely fun filled trip to Texas!!! Here are some pics from our trip:

And then here is a card I did a few weeks ago for one of the ladies I work with. She has been amazingly supportive and helpful during my day to day work and has provided lots of patience and advice/teaching to make me perform my job to the best of my abilities!!!

You can tell I love the easel cards right!!! LOL I do love making these, they aren't just a regular card as the recipient can display them on their desk, entertainment center, mantle or where ever they choose, I just love the look of them!!!

OK, it is way too late for me to still be up so I best get to bed. Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

PS I do have one layout I completed today as well but forgot to take a pic of it so tomorrow hopefully as I plan on doing a little more scrapping tomorrow too!!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
