RCAD 228 and 229

Hello There, I am playing catch up again. LOL!  Only two days this time.
RCAD 228

RCAD 229
Rolodex Card A Day 229 is a very special one. I made it in honor of one of my You Tube followers. His name is Deacon and he is 3 years old. His grandmother told me he loves my videos and they let him watch them to calm him down. That just cracked me up. He loves to swim and play legos. So the card is made to look like legos and a pool. 
Here is the video.


I hope you had a great weekend!

Raisin Boat Challenge #26

Challenge #26... It's that time of year between "Summer Celebrations" and "The Holidays," which makes it a great time to stock up on birthday cards. Wouldn't it be nice to have a pile of hand-made birthday cards ready whenever you need one?

Well, here's a chance to do just that and maybe win a FREE stamp set of your choice! You can enter as often as you like. Use any set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps), but if you use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice!

Remember you can rent or buy sets from Raisin Boat. No guilt in using a set for just one project, such as a challenge. We look forward to seeing your creations!


Here are the upcoming challenges for 2014 to help you get the perfect sets into your rental Pick List:
August: Birthday NOW
September: Halloween
October: Thankful
November: Christmas

This challenge will close on the 12th of September.

Here is a card I created to get you started:


Here is the video!
So head on over to the Raisin Boat Challenge and link up those Birthday Cards. You could win a free stamp set!

Rolodex Card A Day 227

Today I made my card using some stamped images I found while cleaning out a drawer. Do you do that, stamp images for another time and forget you have them? It is fun when you find them just when you want to create.

Here is the video!

Rolodex Card A Day 223

Rolodex Card A Day 223 This is a quote from Rumi
"It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away so that when I've gone and come back, I'll find it at home."

Here is the video!


I am in the town were I grew up. We plan to take a nice long walk today. I forgot how pretty it is here.   Penn's woods is truly the right name for this place.  We head home tomorrow. Two long days of driving. I am not looking forward to that.  I miss my kitties and I hope they are happy to see me.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping.

Rolodex Card A Day 220

Rolodex Card A Day 220 was inspired by a card that I saw in the book The Encyclopedia of Greeting Cards Tools and Techniques
by Susan Pickering Rothamel. This book is a very handy tool.
Here is the video


8 hours is a long time in a card. We are in PA but I would love to sleep all day. LOL
Have a great day!

Rolodex Card A Day 219

Rolodex Card A Day 219 is a play for card. I had fun with a new stencil and some wooden words.


Here is the video.
We started our road trip early to try to miss some of the road construction. We drove 8 to 12 and ended up in Portage In. Only 8 hours to go.

Have a great day!
