Happy SSDS Challenge Day!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend too! Our challenge this week was to use Red, White & Blue, and I came up with this very simple card that I'm giving to my Stepdad who is visiting and who is a Veteran having served in 2 different services in WWII. I didn't take a very good photo of this, but I think you get the gist of it.
I've been swamped this week with having my company arrive for their annual month long stay! I look forward to it, but it's a lot of work both before and while they are here!
I also had a new job interview this past week, and I hope it went well. I think the interview did, but you never seem to know anymore, ya know! The boss is taking a couple of weeks to make up his mind. I've been so sad that things didn't work out at my last job, but then it's going through lots of changes. So far 5 staff people are gone from there in the past couple of months. So I hope this new job works out for me.
I'm sorry -- but I've neglected commenting on the cards for our challenge last week too, but I do check them out and they are fantastic. I am so happy that so many people are coming by and joining in on the challenges! Keep it up! I hope to do better now to follow up and comment. I fail miserably at doing that routinely.
Red, White & Blue - come on - with Flag Day and Independence Day coming up you definitely have more reasons to use those colors! Join us please!!

Squigglefly & Sentimental Sunday too

Well, I'm a day early, but I wanted to get my card posted for Squigglefly Monday. It's a get well card! Isn't this a cute image. Of course, I can see using it for a lot of things beside this Get Well card but it seems that those are in need for now. I've mailed out a few these past few weeks.
And, this card also works for the Sentimental Sunday too. I love it when things work out like this!! It doesn't often happen to me.
I'm so excited, as my Mom and Stepdad are coming up to visit this week. They'll be here about a month and at the moment I'm not working again, so that works out just fine. I hope to have some visitors while they are here. We'd like them not to have to travel so much and hopefully some friends will make the drive up there to see them.
But that also means I need to clean house! I've nearly got the guest room ready for them. See, that's also my work space, and it's been a mess for a long time, but we recently moved out all the big furniture (except the bed) and I've put in some bookcases to hold all my stash - so hopefully this will work better this visit. Just some last minute tweaking to do!
Please come join in the Squifflefly challenge! Check out the other DT projects. And the other images as well. There are lots more that work for a get well theme!

Been Playing a little today...

I found this free adorable cute image of a hamster with a hula hoop and couldn't resist. I made up this card for their 3rd Challenge at 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. Their DT did a great job!, but I was just happy to have time enough to make a very simple card.
Hope you had a happy Sunday!

SSDS Challenge

Hi everyone. Today is a fun challenge at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday. It's making an Easel card. And I made this card for a friend at work, someone who has been really thoughtful and nice to me with all this cancer stuff. She's been through it all, recently herself, and what a blessing she's been to me.

So... I took this in to her at work yesterday.

I really like this style of card, in fact I've made a bunch of them recently. I did both my Mom's and my Mother-in-law's Mother's Day cards like this too! But they aren't for showing yet!!

Go check out the other DT members cards, they are fantastic!
