the last of country life projects

The problem with these cute lamb cards is the title. During my brainstorming I came up with one to many and ended up with not being able to decide.
I thought you might enjoy a walk in the cobwebs of the corners of my mind
Possible titles are:

I'm feeling sheepish
Miss ewe
Been thinking of ewe
I've been baahd
Ewe R so beautiful 2 me
Ewe r one of my kind
Ewe r my sunshine
Ewe make me feel so young
Ewe make me happy
Tag ewe r it!

So you see the problem right?

Hey good lookin what ya got cookin?

We all know the cow fear story I'm going to use in in an album later.




I wish I were talking about high school football but I'm not. The unfortunate part of living in Mo for parts of the year is Tornado alley. Unfortunately yesterday was a duck and cover kind of day. Fortunately(Thank you JESUS) after 5 touchdowns in the metro area none were at my apartment or at Rod's work. Fortunately I also have a great neighbor who was watching tv and she told me we had one on the ground (see some of the most very scary words you hear in your life time "its on the ground headed this way" oy) who came down to my place for shelter when the nader was 15 miles away (give or take a few) and we vacated to Bo's. Bo is the wonder friend who put up her two dogs so that my little pumpkin could have some basement shelter as well. Yeah it was so serious I left my apartment unlocked because I didnt have time to hunt for my keys or take the time to wear my wedding rings. Rod and I couldn't communicate the circuits were busy so we were leaving each other voice mails and a text or two.
I'm thankful its a new day, I'm even more thankful WE made it through yesterday.
I have cards but I'll post them later tonight.
This is the wild wild west.

No doubt y'all have been watching the news. Let me just say driving through St. Louis listening to tornado sirens is not in the least bit fun.

This is fun (er)

This is much more cute.

Stay Safe

I have no time but enjoy

Mil is ok and out of her five hour surgery, still in that drugged limbo but ok.

Mom is doing better.

Unfortunately Rods sister Karen needs lot of prayers she will be have a very serious operation. The docs are saying she has a cancerous mass so keep her in mind.

A sympathy card for his uncles passing. Uncle Hank worked the orange groves in Florida after he retired, he loved working in the orange groves it reminded me of him.

My MIL is having major surgery in the morning so this will be her get well card. She loves grapes.

My Mom was in the hospital all weekend they tell her she has diverticulitis. So her weekend was no fun.

And to remind me sunny days like today are ahead. Even if is still in the 40's the sun is shining.

(no tital)

So as you can see I'm having trouble making titles for cards of late.

I'm going to blame it on my busy day and the pool.

The pool calls my name.

The pool will open on or before Memorial Day.

It is one of the things I do appreciated and greatly enjoy here in kc.

My bathing suits are ready.

My sun block is ready so are the beach towels.

I'm going to dig out my beach bag today!

My big rimmed floppy hats will come out of the bedroom and go on the entry closet door (hanger) and wait for the party to begin.

PS would y'all remember Rod and I in your prayers? Rod's Uncle Hank passed yesterday he really wants to go to the funeral but its in Sarasota Florida. We also have some other things going on, a prayer or two never hurts.

wild wild end

Now way back in the wild wild west....

No not really

I know yesterday I said that that was the final the end of Wild Card but when I walked back over to my desk I found these sooooooo.
This time its really the final cuts for wild card for now.
Debbie I love the wreath ideal may need to take you up on that.

So next week or whenever I'll do Country Life!

This card was a real pain but I do love the end result. The swirlies were cut out but would not show up no matter how hard I tried so I came up with highlighting them in white marker. I'm sure the paper clip was a gift from one of you (Betty?) I cant remeber but i love it with this!

Cupcake was fun. I pop doted the muffin top and left it balnk because I could not quite decide what to say on the muffin top. I could have went for jsut sprinkles or Happy Birthday but I hated to cover the top!

Your the best! Pats Blue Ribbon Beer no jsut joking. Here again i could not decide what to put on the card so its supprise blank.

Thats it for today I'll get back with y'all later!

Part 3 of wild

Don't you think this would be a darling Baby Shower Invite? Or a place card holder?

I think if I enlarged this just right it could hold a flat candy bar. It would be a great welcome card.

I love this baby card. what I love more is the right foot of the cradle make a "G". G for girl ect

This is a card but will be used as a tag. You cant tell but in the last two cards I used glitter paper.

I'm working on my final batch of Wild card examples, see y'all soon!



Monday, May 09, 2011

OK y'all I'll update later I've just been up to my ears in normal every day life stuff.
like getting thrown off Gm property again on Saturday.....
Let me just say that the head of security (caption something or other) at the plant seems like a nice man, at least he apologies well : )

wild part 2

I was way to lazy to cut out the words "haven't seen you on the web lately"

Patriotism is always a good thing

the words were old old old rub on's just laying around.

Well I do miss all of you!

That's a pumpkin in the grass. The pic does not not do this card justice.

That's it for today kids!

Well at least it made it to 37 last night I guess it could be worse and not warm up during the day ........

Alrighty these are cards for family I don't normally do this much matting but its a special occasion. Clipie and I will have 2 new great nieces and 1 great new nephew by the end of the year. So this was for them.

bella stamp fyi

very old H.L. stamp

This is for the maintenance team they are servicing the apartment this week. We are supposed to leave a note on our doors if we have pets. We have over 600 apartments in our complex so it would be impossible for them to remember pets. So this is what I came up with, its on our front door. I think it's from Paisley but I'm not 100% on that.

I so wish I were home for the weekend. I'm getting better just not better enough.

fame monster, WILD about wild card

You know some things in life aren't worth talking about and some are. I'm aware we have breaking news it was a historic day yesterday. Yet I really don't want to talk about it, its over said and done with. This is my blog, this is my happy place and hopefully yours so lets continue on with the happy shall we?

OMG oodness I purchased wild card in a Custom Crops $17.00 sale I've never been sure I'd like it. Let me count the ways I'm in love with this cartridge! Wait I love it so much its hard to count the good things about it.

So I'll show you a few things I really want the courage to do 30 things in 30 days with the cart but I think I may fall short. So I wont promise30 cuts from one cartridge but I will work with it and it the next few days.

I know weather is not fun anywhere. I feel like screaming at the top of my lungs I'm so tired of waking up to a cold 40 something every freaking morning.

like my mom

I also have a cute nose. The fact that she is a human and I am a cat makes no difference.

Today Mom is busy she is making baby blankets for two new editions. Its her third baby blanket in two weeks for family. I love the blankets they are warm and I can de hair on them.

Mom will also be making some baby cards to go with the blankets and she will show them off soon.

Sorry gotta go check on that thing in the jar Mom calls it a butterfly. Its a satisfactory toy she bought for the twins but i think I've convinced her to keep it for me.

Pumpkin the cute cat with a cute nose.

Beading alert this is as crafty as it gets today.
