This Week's Cards

My week hasn't been too busy. On Monday, my brother and I helped our Aunt Mary with the task of cleaning out some things at our grandmother's house (she passed away in April). On Tuesday, we went shopping and had lunch at Chili's where I was good and ordered from the "guiltless" menu. On Wednesday, I scrapped. Today, I scrapped some more. I put a big dent in Andrew's Boy Scouts album that I've been working on for what feels like forever. Two more pages and I'll be finished!

A little *toot* for myself - I am so proud of my workout efforts this week. I've been doing the My Fitness Coach for the Wii combined with Wii Fit and it's really making me feel great! I have time now to exercise. I just hope that when school starts back (August 3 for teachers) that I continue with this good habit.

I also had time to make cards this week.

This is one I made for my mama's friend. I made it based on last week's card sketch challenge at Split Coast Stampers (SC235). I used Basic Grey Urban Prairie scraps. I have so much of that paper so I keep trying to use it up. I know you must think that's the only PP I have. That cute little Happy Birthday stamp is from Studio G.

I made this one using an older Mosh Posh kit and Unity Stamps. I "colored" the lamp shades with Shimmerz Paint in Angel Wings and Key Lime. It is for the July card challenge at scrapbook.com in the technique category. This month's technique was to do faux stitching. My cross stiches were done with a Sharpie.

This last card was based on this week's card sketch challenge at Split Coast Stampers. I love working with sketches. The hardest part for me is choosing my papers. I used some My Mind's Eye papers along with a stamp from Unity's Beach Days and Sun Rays kit.

My fellow Sassy Blinging Babe, Sarah, created an Etsy shop. Sarah never ceases to amaze me with her creativity. She is so talented! Please take a moment to hop over to her shop and see all of the pretty things she has to offer. Click here to visit Sarah's Etsy shop.

I have had an Etsy shop for awhile but I didn't have anything in it. Sarah inspired me to re-open my shop. After all, I do have a lot of cards lying around. I make cards just for fun and usually without a purpose. Hopefully someone will like my cards and will want to buy them. You can click here to visit my shop. There's not much in it yet.

Thanks for looking! I hope I've provided you with a bit of inspiration today.
Enjoy the rest of your week!

Blessings,
