Rolodex Card A Day 240

Rolodex Card A Day 240 was inspired by some paper I received from my friend Terry Oulboub. She is terryeo1  on YT. The paper just made me think of sewing so I went with that.

Rolodex Card A Day 239

Rolodex Card A Day 239 

Today I was having fun with rub ons. The quote today says, Life is about moving on, accepting change and looking forward to what makes you strong and more complete.  It also says This moment life is good. That is what makes me strong and complete, (Recognizing each good moment!). They can really add up when you pay attention to them. 

Here is the video.

Have a wonderful day And, Thanks for stopping!

Rolodex Card A Day 237 and YPP Tickets and Christmas Card

Hello, Well it has been crazy around here. I am so glad I worked a head on projects.  Mary is really having a hard time. Yesterday they needed to do a blood transfusion and she was doing pretty good. When they hooked up the second bag she got very confused and anxious. She was having trouble breathing and her heart rate went up. They said it was a reaction and stopped the transfusion. She was very upset and anxious and night time came. This can happen to elderly people. Today they plan on moving her to a nursing home. The heart breaker is when she says she just wants to go home but I don't have my home anymore. Someone else lives there.  It is so hard to see her like this.

Well you are not here for all of that. Here is my RCAD 237. I was making my tickets for the YPP Artsy Fartsy Ticket Challenge and I used one on the RCAD. It is a Ticket to Dream. The challenge is to use embossing.

Here is the video that shows how I created the RCAD and Ticket!

I continued the embossing theme with the Christmas Card All Year Challenge. This is the other challenge I host at Your Paper Panty.
Here are my 5 cards for September.
and here is the video.

Thanks for stopping and please say a prayer for Mary.

Rolodex Card A Day 235

Rolodex Card A Day 235 I should call this on Flowers for Mary.

Here is the process video.

In the video I say I am at the Expo because I made this video a head of time.  I am not at the Expo I am home. Poor Mary my MIL who is 94 fell and broken shoulder and hip. They operated on her hip but the shoulder they are keeping in a sling.  She was very out of it yesterday and  just looks so frail and sore. It was her right side and she is right handed. She will have to go to a nursing home next week. She will need to be able to stand before she can go back to assistant living. Mary will need more help that we can give her at home. She is getting very good care, but I wish it was more. It is so hard to see her like this. She tries so hard to focus. I wish she could just relax and rest. We will be at the hospital most of today.

Thank for your blessings and prayers and for stopping by.

Rolodex Card A Day 233

Rolodex Card A Day 233
For this card I used a Raisin Boat jar stamp for the set called Sealed With a Kiss and made it a shaker. Then I filled up the card and jar with sequins and used a Lady Gaga quote that says, "and now I'm just trying to change the world one Sequin at a time."

Here is the video.

I will be in St Charles Ill Friday and Saturday helping at the Raisin Boat booth with the make and take. If you are attending the Scrapbook Expo please stop by, do and make and take or just say hello.

Rolodex Card A Day 230
This is a picture of my FIL back in the early 50's. 

Rolodex Card A Day 231
This card was inspired by a book Delight in the Details by Lisa M. Pace

 Rolodex Card A Day 232

This card is in honor of Lucy who has been sick her whole short life. Saturday we had to put to sleep. This time the infection was so bad she was hissing when she was touched. The vet said we did all we could and more than most. It was a very hard decision. She also said there are many healthy kitties out there that need a good home. She is right but this is so hard it really makes having pet not so appealing. I hope Sophie lives to a very ripe old age. She seems healthy and is very affectionate.

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.

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."

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.
