Happy Birthday

I played along with the October Diva Inspiration and Blog Hop Challenge today which  you can find HERE.  It's been a while since I have posted any paper crafing!

 I used Stampin Up Ink in Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron & Pool Party.  The color paper is Rich Razzleberry as well.  The Stamps are from Verve and The Stamps of Life

Happy Birthday

Hello all!  I have finally worked on another card.  This is MojoMonday435.  This is a birthday card for my niece.  Got to play with my new Pattern paper from Stampin up.  It is Bohemian paper pack.  I used the Stamp set HappyBDay2You from The Stamps of Life for the cupcake and the sentiment was from Be Happy Sentiments from Amy R. Stamps. 

These are the socks I hand knit for my niece.  My mother in law asked me to make them for her so I did and they are going out in the mail today.  
I made a little handmade by tag to put on them.  On the back are the instructions on how to care for the hand-knitted socks so that hopefully they last along time. 
Hope she likes them!

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday card for the MojoMonday#432 card sketch.  I am a little behind this week as not feeling well, but thought I better get this card posted.  I got some new Pattern paper from Stampin up called Wildflower Fields.  So I had to open it up!  The stamps I used are by The Stamps of Life, Thanks2You and Happy2becircles.

Snow, snow and more snow & Paper Crafting

We got some snow last night.  But I don't think it is anywhere near what we are suppose to get.  The hubster was out for several hours plowing the driveway and shoveling so that we could get down the driveway.  Of course it would help if the Gravel road we live on gets plowed.  That could be a few days before the state or the farmer up the road who the state has contracted with to plow gets to it.  For now the kids have no school. the hubster has no work  and we are all staying in the house.

We shall see what tonight and tomorrow night bring, because it is now snowing again.

But with that being said at least I got to get some paper crafting done again today. I organized my cards to see what need to make more of and I made a card for Viva La Verve sketch.

I made this with Craft and Cream cardstock.  The stamp sets are from Stampin Up.  I used Summer Sillhouettes and label Love.  This card is going in the mail  with a gift I knit.  Hopefully, I will get to the post office at the beginning of the week.  We shall see what the snow allows.

For You

Wow, again I can't believe I have not been blogging.  Life has just been busy and I have not been paper crafting lately!  We have been in our new house now for about 14 months and are loving it!  We have 20 acres.  Loving it!

My hubby and I just finished setting up and reorganizing my craft room. I now have space to work with my new desk/hutch.  
 I am also getting my stamp sets organized so the they are easily accessible.  I was finding it frustrating not knowing what I had and not being able to find them.  FOr the most part they are all now in either DVD cases or CD cases on my new stamps shelf that hubby bought me for Christmas.
After all that I am finally getting do do some paper crafting.  I am not longer frustrated looking for stuff and wondering where it is and not having enough space. YEAH!  I will say that most of it was done while I was on vacation. My hubster got the shelf up and my desk bought and put together!  He ROCKS! 

Okay now on to my paper crafting for today.  
I played along with the MojoMonday431

And here is my take on her lovely sketch! 

I used a couple different stamps sets along with pattern paper and cardstock. 
I used 2 different stamp sets by VERVE. I used Abundant Blessings and Bloom&Grow.  I also used Stampin Up Great Friends Stamp set.  The patter paper is from Close To My Heart, Stella.  The base is on Crumb Cake cardstock also by Stampin Up

As you can see I like a lot of different companies products.  I don't ever use just one!  But that is okay!  I love paper crafting supplies and well, buy what I like!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all!   I hope you all enjoyed your day and enjoyed time with your family!

I didn't realize it had been so long since I have blogged.  WE have been in our new house for just over a  year.  Last year we moved here to our land the weekend before Thanksgiving.  It has been a crazy year.  We have had to buy a vehicle so I could get up our steep driveway. We got moved into our house, we had to buy a tractor & 4wheeler to maintain the driveway.  Now my handsome hubby is working on a shed to store them in for the winter.  Hopefully the bad weather holds off enough so that we can (he) can get it up!  We have been so blessed and are thankful we are together and able to get out here to our land and enjoy the country.

I am sure that I have mentioned in past posts about our land.  That we are wanting to move to our 20 acres that we bought a couple years ago.  We are in the process of getting the house out there.  It is such a slow process!  Urg!  signed papers end of July.  Well they got the well in and now have the concrete footers in...Yeah.
I am super excited to be out here!  They claim the house is being moved up at the beginning of this coming week. But, oh, wait they told us that last week.  And before that a few times!  We shall see!  But at least the footers are in!

This will be the view from our front porch or living room or the front of the house.
Just looking over the little pond. It is fun watching the deer walk around there and all the other littel critters.  Not thrilled about the bears but we shall see what happens!

Because we are moving out here we have already enrolled the kids in the Giles County schools.  They are loving it. I am not liking to have to drive the kids back and forth every day...the 130 miles per day is getting old real fast!  But soon like I said we will be out and all will be well.

I haven't done much paper crafting.  With soon moving, I don't want to get stuff out and all over.  I have to start getting stuff packed  up and my paper crafting stuff is something I can pack ahead of time.
I have however done some knitting. I finished a pair of socks back in September that I haven't shared yet.  My friend has asked me to make her, her husband and her son some knitted socks.  So that is what I am working on.  Her are hers....
I really like how they turned out!  Think they are going to fit her perfectly. Now...I am not sure about the socks for her husband...but we shall see!

Thanks for stopping by!
