2 cards and a few of my flowers

Yes I know tomorrow became the next day and the next, Maybe the docs will get me fixed all back together again very soon, so I can be crafting and crafting and more crafting, well got to throw time in there for my veggie garden and my flower garden, oh yes, Im a veggie planter to, with all the colors that I am surrounded by, I should be ozzing of inspiration and lots of mojo, but as it stands right now, the only mojo I got is just gettin around, sad I say, just sad. Well I do have 2 cards and Im quite pleased that I finished them, just can't stand not having something going in my craft room, know what I mean? i used inkadinkado stamps and sentiments and lots of paperstudio and KandCompany(sweet), if you read my blog you will know that I so love paperstudio things expecially paper,on the ladybug card it didn't photograph as pretty as it is for real sorry, its looks like bad coloring, but its very pleasing to look at, I used memento inks andluscious white ribbon and a touch of celery sheer ribbon, and on the other card I used KandCompanyas well as paperstudio, I used my cricut expressions for my main focus image and used selfadhesive pearls to the corners,dyed some laccey ribbon to look old to match the paper and ink, i used the mrtha stewart lace borderpunch 4 times and layered, I just love the look,I ran my ribbon behind the inside card and layered on top of that to hide and made a hanging ribbon to tie with hodgepodge ware to make it interesting and more luxurious, I love the teal color which I used my cuttlebug on the strip behind the ribbon in all i just really like the cards and hope you will enjoy them as well, the flowers are just a couple out of the many in my flower bed..God Bless

Im thinkin honeysuckles

Well I got me some dental work done and am somewhat out of pain, although they could not take care of the other problem tooth I swear, with all the money my mom had put in my teeth growing up that my teeth would be lookin good to this day but nope not mine, they look absolutely terrible I wants one of them pretty smiles that costs lots of money.. On that note don't you just think that its terrible that it cost so doggone much to have your teeth fixed, I mean, if your teeths bad so is your health, if your fortunate enough to have insurance and I do, makes me wonder why you pay for it because it stills costs out the butt. But you gotta do what you gotta do. No wonder you see all these people with bad teeth heck they can't afford it, and if they would quit givin state funds to illegal residents of the U.S. maybe they could afford to give insurance to the poor american people that deserve it, but, thats just my opinion on that one.. SO for my card as you can tell its not all spiffied up, its simple and just cute to me..I just ain't feelin well but I wanted to post somethin, cause I loves my craft stuff..This little stamp I picked up at a craft store by us, I want to say its a Clear Dollar Stamp but ain't to sure. I used my cuttlebug for my card base, I cut my card at 51/2x81/2 and then scored at 4.25, then I used my martha stewaet lace punch 3 times and layered them added some pearls from paperstudio some ribbon/offray, on my main image I made a corner sash out of a diecut from the cuttlebug and added pearls to that, its pretty basic today folks but I love sharing what I love to do, and the picture of my son who is 10 hes sitting on top of a dirt pile that we had delivered for our yard watching the birds eat, hes very in tune with nature and loves the flowers and the birds, I just love the way he looked and got this shot from my craft room and thought I would share it to..Thanks for stopping by,God Bless you all

punched easter basket

I used my basket punch and an egg punch so that I could assemble this 3dimensional basket, its purpose is to use as a magnet for our fridge, I know easter is gone already but I know that this is not a new idea, but it is my first stamped magnet project, feeling pretty ok with it I decided to post it. No its far from perfection, it was one of those make and learn things, but I thought I would share it, hope ya think its ok there isn't any stampin involved except for around the basket, I punched the basket three times for the dimension and the magnet,punched my eggs with assorted dsp added the bling and used my scorpal for the textured effect on my basket added ribbon and there you have it a fridge magnet, I'm certain my 4 year old could make this but its always fun playing with my papercrafts and tools that I haven't used in a while oh I added a little glossy accents to some of the eggs as well...God Bless and hope you had a wonderful easter weekend

Thank You Lord
Lord, thank your for this sink of dirty dishes, we have plenty of food to eat.
Thanks you for this pile of dirty, stinky laundry; we have plenty of nice clothes to wear.
And I would like to thank you, Lord, for those unmade beds; they were so warm and comfortable last night. I know that many have no bed.
My thanks to you, Lord, for this bathroom, complete with all the splattered mirrors, soggy, grimy towels and dirty lavatory, they are so convenient.
Thank you for this finger-smudged refrigerator that needs cleaning. It has served us faithfully for many years. it is full of cold drinks and enough leftovers for two or three meals.
Thank you, Lord, for this oven that absoluteley must be cleaned today; It has baked so many things over the years.
The whole family is grateful for that tall grass. We all enjoy the yard. My kids are healthy and able to run and play.
Lord, the presence of all these chores awaiting me says You have richly blessed my family. I shall do them cheerfully and I shall do them gratefully.
Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings, Thank you, Lord, that I can hear. There are so many who are deaf.
Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible, Thank you,
Lord, that I can see. Many are blind.
Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising, Thank you, Lord, that I have the strength to rise. There are so many who are bedridden.
Even though the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost, toast is burned and tempers are short, my children are so loud, Thank you, Lord, for my family. There are many who are lonely.
Even though our breakfast table never looks like the pictures in magazines and the menu is at times not balanced, there are so many who are jungry.
Even though the routine of my job is often monotonous, Thanks you, Lord, for the opportunity to work. There are many who have jo job.
Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day and wish my circumstances were not so modest.
Thank you, Lord, for Life!!!

I was blog hopping and found this poem here
I to find myself being very ungrateful at times, and I am so blessed with such a wonderful family and parents and inlaws and I so feel like so many parts of this poem that I overlook the good parts of it.
