Chicks Rule!

Hey there! One more day til' Friday!!! As I said in yesterday's post, I was suffering from a major sinus headache and burning eyes...hence the horrible coloring! Another tip....don't use Studio G ink pads, they take forever to dry and smudge so easily....I'll just say this card has the "distressed"
look!!! LOL I almost trashed it...but someone may like it.

 
Hope your Thursday is going great!

How You Bee?

Hey there! So happy to be off from work today. I started working on some cards this morning but I've got a horrible sinus headache and my eyes are hurting. So...these cards are not my best work....but they work. :)

I've used this Tiddly Inks image many times...I just love her!

I haven't had time to make cards in a long time, so I just realized a lot of my markers are going dry and need to be replaced. Guess I'll be shopping for markers soon. :)
 
Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed Wednesday!

Nothing Much to Say....

On these cards that is! I've never been one for a loss of words, but on these cards, I opted for no sentiment.
I guess you could call them "note cards" .
For quite some time now I've been obsessed with OWLS. So..when I found this super cute owl image on Pinterest, I just had to STOP cleaning and make some cards! It's my THERAPY!!!

 
 
I'm not sure who makes the image...I will certainly click on the link and see if the poster listed who makes it. She's a cutie! The cards are card blanks from My Mind's Eye..found these at Ross..super cheap for the whole box!
 
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Monday!

Happy 1st Day of Summer! and a PHOTO Challenge



I have to say, it's been feeling like summer for a few weeks now, but today is OFFICIALLY summer! I will be honest when I say I don't really care for summer....it's too hot, there's tons of mosquitos, and it hot, and flies pester you, and it's HOT!!! LOL

But...I do love a few things about summer too....a more relaxed schedule, my kids get to come visit from college, watermelon, tropical sno treats, ice cream, fresh fruits and veggies, and  sittin' on the porch watching a Texas sunset, just a new name a few things......

 
I found this photo challenge online, I kept trying to find a link to a blog of some sort, but it keeps taking me to a Wallpaper Pics Page
so if you find the blog to which it goes to, please let me know. Thanks!
It looks like fun and I plan on doing this challenge:
 
 
Have a wonderful Friday!!!
