Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #121 - Summer Time

Happy Tuesday morning Blog Land!! We are ONE day closer to Friday. I am super excited because I have Saturday AND Sunday off this weekend. Some of you may know that I was laid off at the beginning of May because the place I worked closed. It took me a couple weeks to find a new job, but I was so very lucky to find something so soon. Let me just say that unemployment is THE PITS!! Anywho...my new job requires quite a bit more hours than my last. That means quite a few less hours of crafting time. **sniff...sniff**
But this weekend I will have crafting time. WooHoo!!

It's time for the Sassettes to bring you another fabulous Sassy Cheryl's challenge. This week our crafty, llama loving, sweetie Dawn is our hostess with the mostest and she has us bringing in SUMMER TIME!!! And I must say...It's about time!!! I have only made it to the beach a couple times so far (which is really sad because I only live 12 miles away from it). Hopefully there will be more beach days in the weekends to come. Then I can be like this cutie pie, Sassy Sally in her Inner Tube. How stinkin' cute is she?!? 

Grab your favorite Sassy Cheryl image that reminds you of Summer time and join in on the challenge this week. You don't have to use a Sassy Cheryl's image, but if you do your card will be entered twice in the drawing. Gook luck and Happy Crafting Y'all!!

I made another circle sentiment and I am happy to share it with you. Just right click on the image and save it to your computer. Just tell everyone where you found it. ENJOY!!

Shiver Me Timbers...

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #119 - Happy Birthday

Happy Tuesday morning Blog Land friends! 
I have the honor of hostessing the challenge this week at Sassy Cheryl's and I have chosen the
 theme Happy Birthday. You can never have too many Birthday cards lying around. You never know when you will need one. I made this one with a certain little someone in mind. I just love the way Noah is peeking over the edge of the tub. Doesn't he look like he's up to something??? Just like a certain little red head I know, always looking for mischief. Lol
Cheryl has some adorable new Birthday images in her shop just in time for this challenge.
Stop by and check them out! Hope you can decide on a image and join us.

I thought Noah had been in the bath playing for a while and the water was starting to get a little chilly. That's what made me think of "shiver". Lol
 Here is the sentiment I made for Noah. I would love to share it with you. Just right click on the image and save. I just ask that if you use it, tell people where you got it.

No Bones About It

Good Morning! This is my EARLY morning post for today. My bloggy pals "across the pond" get up a little earlier than I do so while you read this I will be counting sheep. Lol

This cute little pup, Scruff, is a Just Inklined image. How stinkin' cute is he??? I just love his happy expression. I imagine if I was a dog and had a bone that big it would be like me having my favorite Starbucks drink. I've been told that I get that glazed over look in my eyes when I see the cup. Lol

I have been trying to build up my Thank You cards. It seems like I always need one. 
Scruff and Bone seemed like a perfect image to give someone a happy thanks.

Sun Shiny Day!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #118 - Celebrating Grads & Dads

Happy Tuesday morning Blog Land! 
It's challenge day over at Sassy Cheryl's and our Sassy Sistah Peggy has set the theme for us. 
We are celebrating Grads & Dads this week.

I decided to get a jump on some Father's Day cards.
 I have several to make for myself and a couple for friends. 
I just can't believe it is June already!!! Where has the first half of this year gone???
I swear, the older I get...the faster time flies. 

Hop over to Sassy Cheryl's with a hot cup of whatever you drink and see what the rest of the DT has cooked up for us. After you have gotten some inspiration, head on over to your crafty space and get busy! I know you all have Grads or Dads that need a beautiful card in their "Snail Mail" box. 
I can't wait to see what you all come up with.
 Happy Crafting Y'all!!

Golf Trolley

I have a Birthday card to share with you today. My Brother-In-Law, Sam is a BIG golf nut and his Birthday was in May. He, my Sister and their two boys will be coming in next week from Colorado. I can't wait to see them. I figured I better finish his card before he got here. Lol
This "Golf Trolley" image from Just Inklined is just perfect for him.

Just Inklined To Hop

It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's time for another Just Inklined blog hop!!
Our very talented crafty gal Karen is our hostess this month and she has chosen the theme of 
EMBOSSING! (any how...any where)
You should have come here from our newest DT member Jane's blog
I'm sure she had some crafty eye candy for you. 
I have been pretty sick this weekend and since that is when I do my crafting 
(and since I waited until the last minute) I don't have a new card to show you this morning. However, I have picked some of my favorite Just Inklined cards with embossing on them to share with you. 

Here is the order of the hop just in case you get lost along the way.


You can find "DIY King" HERE.

You can find "Wacky Wheelz - Ford Popular" HERE.

You can find "Head Over Heels" HERE.

You can find "Gardening Shelf" HERE.

You can find "Dick Van Duck Surfing" HERE.

You can find "Robot Boy" HERE.

Your next stop on the hop is Joyce's blog!
I just peeked, she has a beautiful scalloped card for you. 
So... sit down, grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy yourself.
