Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop


I'm so glad to be participating in this months OBG hop!! I haven't made any cards for about 3 months!! Posting on my blog has been lacking too!! (P.S. I hate this new Blogger layout for posting!!) 


Our blog hop showcases cards made with items that we have had "stashed" for at least 6 months. An "Oldie but goodie" that we've pulled out and blown off the dust to create something with it.


I made 2 cards for the hop today!! I actually colored them about 3 months ago, but they have just been sitting around!  They are both Sassy Cheryl Birthday images. This is Birthday Balloon boy.
Cardstock is Yoyo Yellow, dp is "Celebrations" bu the Paper Studio. I added 2 balloon brads and used Bakery Twine for the strings. Sentiment is a miscellaneous one, ink is Pacific Blue. I used the SU oval and scalloped oval punch and pierced it. It is colored with Copics.

  This cutie is called "Cheesy Surprise Gift". Card stock is Green Gable, dp is "Celebrations" by the Paper Studio. I added brads and Bakers twine for the bows in her hair. Also used the SU oval and Scalloped oval punch and pierced it as well. 



Now, for some non crafting news.... I got to see Hunter a few weeks ago. My Mom joined us. We went to the zoo for Zoofest.     Hunter wearing  Grey Wolf.
                                                                     Grammie & Hunter
                                                       Hunter & Great Grammie
                                               The following weekend we had Cristine's Bridal Shower.
                                                            Me and my BFF, Rebecca

      Hi everyone,   I am fine... I have been very, very delinquent in card making and posting to my blog!!
Ever since I got my Kindle, it seems all I have been doing is reading, reading and reading!!!
It used to be one of my favorite things to do.   takes much less effort than card making!! ha ha...
I do miss getting my creative juices flowing, however!!  
    Tomorrow, Saturday, I am going to visit Hunter! Haven't seen him since February!! Hopefully we will all get to see him in July and have a Birthday party for him. His Birthday was May 25. They went camping for the weekend, so we didn't get to see him.  My daughter is still proceeding with court to get him back!! It is such a long, hard road!!  But we have high hopes!!!
   Sunday I am having a Bridal Shower for Cristine. The wedding is June 25 in the Virgin Islands!!  Not too far away!! Only 2 weeks.   Can't wait to share all of the pictures when we get back.
   I have lost 37 pounds so far, since I started my weight loss journey.  The Bride has lost 18, (not that she needed to lose any, though.)  Can't wait. 
    Sorry I haven't visited any blogs, either!!    I PROMISE to start again, soon!!!   I do miss all of my blogging friends!!!

Nurse Margaret and......

  Here is a new card....finally!!!!  It is Nurse Margaret, by Bug a Boo!!   I made her to send to the Staff that cared for me during my recent hospital stay. I hope they like it!!
She is colored with Copics. The card stock is by Gina K, Pure Luxury Vibrant Violet & White. The dp is Bazzill, "Jaybird Street". I rounder all of the corner with my Creative Memories Corner Rounder (Did I ever say how much I love that tool? ha ha)  Then I added some stickles and some bling!!  Her hair and glasses are more purple looking IRL.
  
 Now....here is my new car!!! Just got it on Wednesday!!  My daughter, Jenn,  is a car sales person, and of course I bought it from her.  It is a 2011 Kia Optima LX.  I didn't really know I was looking for a car!!  The price was very right, and I knew that my car was going to be needing some major work soon, so I bit the bullet!!
  Thanks for looking!!! Come back again, soon. Hopefully I won't stay away so long!!

Finally, 2 cards!!

          Finally, I've gotten 2 more cards done!!  I'm feeling a lot better this week!!
 My pain is gone!! Woo hoo!!!
This first card is that cute little boy again!!  Sassy Cheryl's, "Thank God For Summer.!"
          Card stock is Night of Navy, Gina K Pure Luxury White, Bazill Basics "Jaybird Street." 
He is colored with Copics, Corners are rounded with Creative Memories Corner Rounder. (I just love that tool!!)   I never know what to do with masculine/boy cards, so I added some ribbon to the side. 
I shaded with Pebbles Chalk.
       This next cute is another Sassy Cheryl's, "Birthday Balloon Girl".  Card stock is Pink Passion and YoYo Yellow. DP is a Martha Stewart paper. I used the CM corner rounder again. Sentiment is SU Spring Pictogram. I used the SU Oval and Scallop Oval punches which I pierced and added some coordinating ribbons. 
                               What a cutie!!!
   Well, I hope you enjoyed my 2 latest cards.   Come back again on Wednesday for the Designing DIVAS Oldies But Goodies Blog hop!!!
