Just popping in to say hi after a few weeks of getting settled in to our new house.¬† Things are coming along nicely although I do have to say I am anxious to get at the pile of my craft stuff and get my workshop set up and running. ūüôā¬† Unfortunately, I thought the kids bedrooms and clothing should go first!¬† Ha!

While I haven’t been able to do much crafting, I have some older cards that i¬†didn’t get a chance to post so I thought I’d share them now.¬† I saw this cute robot paper a while back and knew that if I got a few sheets of coordinating papers I could make some cute quick cards.¬† I used a stamp set from CTMH and some glitter glue and google eyes and this is what came of the project.

Some of the robot fun

Quick cuts to make diagonals makes a different look.

So, I used about 5 sheets of paper and cut them all in pieces and made about 10 cards super quick.¬† Glittered them all up and stamped the sayings and viola!¬† I hope you enjoyed seeing something fun and new.¬† I’ll try to be back online again soon for a post!

Take care and stay cool!

Happy Fourth of July everyone!!¬† Today is¬†a fun day all over the USA with parties, BBQs, and most of all fireworks displays!¬† We are happy to be going to our new town’s show of spectacular fireworks tonight.¬† The kids will have a blast I am sure and I love to watch¬†them dance¬†in the night sky!


The move went fairly smoothly and now we are tackling unpacking everything and getting it into it’s proper “home”.¬† The kids are settling¬†in and making some new friends in the neighborhood and enjoying opening boxes to see their “stuff”!¬† Thanks for everyone’s well-wishes!


Now on to the crafty fun!¬† Here’s¬†two cards I forgot to post last year at Father’s Day – a card I made for my father-in-law and one for my father.¬† I thought it would be fun to share¬†them here since it was all about the stars and stripes and being a great all- American dad/grandpa!¬†( Please pardon the handwritten sentiment, at that point in my last move I didn’t have my spring sentiments out of the box!)


And here is the card I made for my father.  He was in the Navy and so I  used the nautical theme.   Just love that little sailor hat!


So, Happy “Red,White, and Blue”, “Stars and Stripes Forever”, and all that jazz.¬† May you all be safe and well and “God Bless America”!

Thanks for stopping in!
