100 in 100 Challenge–Card #18

I finally had a chance to create this card for Crafters of Faith .. a splitcoasters group I belong to. It’s a little late and it doesn’t have all the required elements but it has a few (sun, blue, something popped up).  I work as an accounts administrator in a local high school so I’ve been pretty busy this past month trying to make sure everything was finished before the end of our school year which was yesterday.  School’s out for the summer, however, I still have to work … there just won’t be any kids or teachers around to bug me, lol.   Enjoy the rest of your Saturday.
I’m entering this card in the following challenges:
Twisted Tuesday – Red Hot Summer
Try A New Technique (SCS) - TLC384

100 in 100 Challenge–Card #17

I read in my local paper today that Elton John is going to be building a summer home not too far from where I live.  I would love to know what was going through his head when he signed on the dotted line to the deed of the sale of the land. (if this does, in fact, turn out to be true).  It’s not that it’s a horrible place to build a summer home but, honestly, I can think of a million other places I’d rather spend my summer.  So, Sir Elton, what were you thinking?

It’s been a long day and I’m heading to bed but, before I do, let me leave you with card #17 of my 100 cards in 100 days challenge.  apoh_DSC03008

Enjoy the journey,

100 in 100 Challenge–Card #16

Loving this challenge! I am not, however, loving the way the ribbon doesn’t show it’s true colors in the photo.  It appears to be more peachy where, in real life, it is definitely a baby pink.  Not sure how I feel about this one overall but it does make card# 16 in the 100 cards in 100 days challenge.

Father’s Day..and 100 in 100 cards 6 - 9

Well, I’ve been busy most of the day.  I went to Church with my family this morning, lunch with my parents, and then we came home and the girls gave their dad his Father’s Day gift.  This year we went big and got him a new computer.  His old one was, as the girls would say, about to explode any minute.  It literally sounded as if there were a ticking time bomb inside of it, lol.  Anyhow, being that he’s not all that techie I spent the rest of the afternoon and the better part of the evening getting it all set up for him.  He’s a little thrown off because this one is so quiet … it does not make one single noise aside from one beep when it is turned on.  I told him that’s a good thing, lol.
Below are the cards he received from the girls (1st card) and from myself (2nd card).  My youngest daughter made the card from her and her sister and I think she did a really great job!  The oldest made him some of his favorite cupcakes and they were oh so yummy!
Card from the girls .. 100-in-100_card9
Card from me .. 100-in-100_card7-1
I also made the following 2 cards for my own father and father-in-law  .. 100-in-100_card6100-in-100_card8

If you are following along, these make cards 6, 7, 8 & 9 in my attempt at 100 cards in 100 days!
Enjoy the journey!

I'm entering these cards in the following challenge:
  • Crafting For All Seasons Challenge #29 - For Man

100 in 100 Challenge–Card #5


  This card was made for the birthday of the daughter of one of my co-workers.  You probably can’t tell by the picture but it’s an easel card.  An easel card is a card that when opened is propped up and held in place, in this case, by the bottom piece where the word “celebrate” is adhered to.   I think it turned out really well for my first attempt.100-in-100_card5-easel 


This makes card #5 in my attempt to make 100 cards in 100 days.

Enjoy the journey,

100 in 100 Challenge–Card #4


  I’m back again with another new card for the 100 cards in 100 days challenge.  I’m having a blast creating these cards let me tell you.  I decided to do a little something new so I added a row of flowers to the inside piece to complete the card.

I want to dedicate this one to all my followers who have given this newbie blogger a chance to share with you.  Thanks for following me.  I will do my best to keep you interested.

So call me crazy but I've decided to take a crack at the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge.  I'm not sure how I'll do but I'm going to at least try. It's not a card a day challenge but I do have to complete 100 cards within the 100 days.  What was I thinking? lol

I’ll post them as I make them and I guess there’s no time like the present to get started so here is card #1:
