50 never felt so good!

Celebrated Saturday with the Queen Scrappers at Archivers. We had a blast.  Our monthly crops ceased to a year so it was great seeing everyone!  Hopefully we can get back into meeting each month.

Sunday I got my praise on and after church I had a Kodak moment with my Auntie Granny.  Doesn’t she look great at 88!

Then on the BIG DAY Monday, August 22nd I blossomed into the Fabulous Fifty Club.  Praise GOD for half a century.  My staff surprised me with a bag of goodies and a banner to stroll in...WOW 50 never felt so good!

FNC & Birthday Weekend!

It’s my birthday weekend and I’m having so much fun!  Started off Friday Nite Chat at Scraps of Color with Mary Joyce as hostess.  We had to use a cowgirl image with a twist, which was to add our state.  This is my take.  I made an ATC card since I’m in an ATC state swap. I've been collecting a lot of these lately.  Then……we had (3) 30 minute challenges for the next projects.
Had fun with the twine and stitchwork.  The horse is an image also
Challenge #1  Use  4 pieces of scraps and make strips. One must be a solid color. Use a plain card as a backing. Add a sentiment and embellish as you like

Simple card.  What a great way to use my scraps.  I might be making more of these!
Challenge #2 Make a shaped card such as a circle, purse or flower. Must have no more than 3 colors on it and a sentiment. Must have 1 flower and some bling

I used my Wild Card Cricut to make this heart card...MS edge punch, Recollection flower and bling
Challenge #3 Make a tag using a mask to decorate it. Must have at least one mask item, a small sentiment and some ribbon or yarns

Yes I had birthday on the mind.  Tiara for the Princess as she turns the Golden girl. 
WOW, I think it just hit me...I'm turning 50!

Thanks for stopping by!

Come on over to Platinumscraps and see what the other Design Team members created using a sketch from  Sketchy Thursdays. 
This is my take on it.  Scripture Proverbs 22:6   Journaling reads: Papa's baby girl Minnie and oldest girl Elizabeth faithfully visits Ashton Nursing home.  Their great great niece McKenzie visits with them occasionally and loves to sing to the patients.


Supplies used:
Scrapworks formal affair pp
Piggy Tails la belle el la bete collection pp
Melody Ross chipboard

Fiber from Hancock Fabrics

As always TFL!  I appreciate your comments

Pretty Girls

At Platinum Scraps our Design Team created from a sketch by Sketchy Thursdays. I used my April 2011 Kreatorville Kraft kit after seeing the cute Sassafras felt butterflies.  The paper is by Anna Griffin paisley and Jillibean Soup Gruyere Cheese.  My hand stitching is a work in progress.  For the titlework I used the Fiskars paper crimper and wrote Pretty Girls with acrylic paint..  Journaling reads:  I want you to be like butterflies…Pretty to look at, but hard to catch!
