Wedding Day

Hi Friends and Stampers,

Wow, life is just flying by.  I've been working some Overtime, headed to a wedding this weekend and decided to use this weeks MFT sketch for my pattern.



I've almost made my way back through most of you, so I hope to be getting by your blog again soon! 

Thanks for looking,

Holly

Warm Wishes & Sunny Smiles

Hi Friends and Stampers,

Wanted to put this one together quick this evening in time for the MFT Sketch Challenge, sorry for the bad pic.  It's late.  lol.




I wanted to get a better pic and I added some flip flops to this card.

Thank You For The Bacon





Hello Stampers and Friends,

I have been waiting for a free morning to use my Crazy Birds.  I just love them.  My Step Mother bought me the matching dies for my Birthday last month and I wanted to get them out and give them a try.  OMGosh I love the matchy dies!  I wondered how much white space would be off centered, if it would cut off the legs and feet or curly cue.  Nope,  it's a no brainer, perfectly aligns with the bird, I put a piece of removable tape on it and voila, a perfect cut out.  I love that.  

My Sister needed a Thank You card for a guy that brought her some most excellent bacon.  She is a chef so that is a perfect gift.  Fortunately, she brought it here! So it was most excellent.  lol.  My Muse is Jenn Shurkus from Creative Chick.....here is hers.

Jenn is having a month long Blogaversary Challenge and I was so happy to be able to play along. There is still a few more days to play if you are interested.  She has lots of really cool things to case. 

Thanks for Checking on Me,

Holly

A Bear and His Balloon


Hello Friends and Stampers,

I'm sorry to have not made my way around to all of your blogs in a very long time.  I had a Very busy July and just took my Certification in Case Management exam on Saturday.  I had two weeks of very intense studying to do but I am happy to report that I did pass the exam and am now Certifiable, lol.  

It's been a little while since I had that feeling that I could just sit and create something with nothing looming over me....except all the house work that NEEDS to be done, lol.   So I will post this and get back to cleaning up the house for the next chapter....which is going back to College in September for a Bachelors degree.   You know, it's always something right?  lol.   It's been 22+ years since I have been in school, so there is a bit of a relearning curve, but I think I can get back into the swing of things okay.  It's a new requirement that Nurses in specialty areas need to get higher degrees.  It will not make a difference in what I do or how I do it, but I will have some theory under my belt and the degree that satisfies the new requirements.  

I had a lot of fun with this bear.  I just love Birdie Brown designs.  This is Birthday Bears from My Favorite Things, I colored with my Copics and used Echo Parks Summer Bliss paper.  

Thanks for checking in.

Hi Friends and Stampers,

I'm interrupting this crafty break to make a card for this weeks Sketch Challenge over at MFT.  I'm also entering the Sparkle and Shine  Challenge at Simon Says.  

I've been studying for an exam that I will be taking next Saturday....Prayers needed!  

I'm hoping to be able to get to some of your blogs next weekend after the exam and see what everyone else has been doing while I've been studying and working.  

Thanks for checking in on me.
