Bad Internet!

What did we ever do without Internet?
3 days we have been without Internet!

I suppose I could have went to some restaurant and updated
my blog, but no I would rather sit home waiting and waiting.

It finally came on!

What I missed was Cosmo Cricket had pictures of my Camp Song
book on their blog. But you can still see it. Click here!
Here is a preview.....super simple for the wee ones.
Would look great with camp pictures!

 I will share with you another project I did for Cosmo Cricket.
This card is made from the same line "S'More Love". Super cute papers!

This line also includes Stamps to match the line!
 These are so CUTE!

Then we have the Ready SET Chipboard......
 and Stickers!
Start gathering those camp photos, because these will be waiting for you at your local Scrapbook store!

On a good note......the Internet is working I guess it is good!

Yes I did!

I carved my own little girl....check it out!
 I had to stamp it out to see where it needed to be deeper. I was pretty excited since this is the first time I have ever done this.
 Flower is mine also!

Cosmo Cricket Sample - Wanna see?

The next few days I will be sharing some samples that I did using Cosmo Cricket's NEW lines. Your going to love the new things they have.
Have you seen the buttons? To die for! LOVE them!
How about a I show you them?

 I heart these!
These buttons are wood. They are adorable!

The project I have for you today is made from the new line

I started with a wood box, added some metal feet (Advantus,tim holtz), painted box and metal feet. After it was dry it was time to cut into the yummy paper. But not only that, this line has stamps to go with it!
So I used one of the Element Deck papers and started to work around that. This is what I came up with!
Hope you enjoy!

 Close up of flowers and metal handle

Surprise! There is a mini book inside! See where I used the stamps? I stamped the image to mimic the outside of the box, but inside it is colored. I love to color! Each side of the paper is stamped with the scallops.

Well that is my share for the day! I really enjoyed working on this and all of the samples.
See you Thursday when I bring you another sample!

It's Monday! How about I share 2 Cosmo Cricket Cards/Unity Stamp

I made a few cards with Cosmo Cricket papers. I want to share with you!
Mind you these are NOT the NEW papers!

But they are super FUN papers and I had fun playing with them.

The first one is made with Cosmo Cricket and Unity Stamp Co. The stamp is a itty bitty called 'Dance in the Rain'. Cosmo Cricket paper was from a 6" X 6" Mini Deck called 'Togetherness".
This is how I have felt.
 I stamped the cute chick on the paper of choice and then stamped the umbrella and boots on to the other choices. Then I stamped the whole image onto the gray background paper then added the body, umbrella and boots. I then raised the wing as if it were holding the umbrella. The eye was the final touch on this cute chick.
I cut out the clouds from the Togetherness paper. I then added a puddle and raindrops.
Stamped the saying and put it all together to make this sweet card!

This next card was layers of Cosmo Cricket paper 2WENTY-THR3E!
I really like this paper, I use it a lot!
 Lots of machine stitching!

 Hope you have enjoyed my Monday share!

It's been since April


Time just goes by........................................

Much has happened since my last post. Some of you know what has gone on, the rest I will let you in on why I have been away.
My husband has been diagnosed with Cancer again, 2nd time in 3 years. He has had surgery and his wound is healing well. He has Radiation therapy that he still must do. His levels in his body are off and it has meant many trips to the Doctors and to the hospital.

Also during this time my Mom was in hospice and has since passed away. This was extremely hard as my Dad had passed just 9 months before. I thought I was doing well with the grieving process, well after Mom passed, I have to say I thought wrong.

It was so hard to figure out where to be. Husband has cancer and my Mom is dying. Well Mom passed before Rick was scheduled for surgery. Mom kept telling me my husband needed me and he kept telling me my Mom needed me. UGH! I was with my Mom when she passed and many days before. Which gave us some time together before she went to be with my Dad.

I am plucking along day to day.

I did have little Ms Farris out and she help keep our minds off of things. She is such a little actress.

She kept me to busy to think about anything! I think all the hugs and kisses she gave Papa, made him heal faster!

In the Arts and Crafts department I had not done anything at all.

Well that is until Advantus asked me to make some samples for Cosmo Cricket again! They sent me a box on July 5th and I sent them samples on July 11th. Boy did I have to get into a groove quick. Took me a bit, but I got there.

I also won a class from Danita. If you don't know the name I am sure you know her work.!/danitaart
I have just started it and I am glad to have some paint on my hands again.

I will share soon!
