Laughing as I Post

I'm laughing because my offering today
is pretty pitiful.

I've been in hurry up mode due the
Grand Opening of our new shop
We buy in bulk and pass the savings on to our shoppers.
Anyone can join our group and
Save, Save, Save
Unfortunately our present shop has a few glitches
(and growing pains) and we are frantically updating
to a new and better place.
It will be worth it to put up with a few glitches when
you see our prices.
Stop by and take a look.
Have a question just ask and we'll be right there to help.

Now, I want you to get a good laugh, too, so I'm going to share
my DT card for I Did It Creations Challenges with you.

Are you ready?

!!!Ta Da!!!
Well, I did get it printed. This is the cutest
image called Pumpkin Girl by
Do you know of any challenges open for just half of an image?

Turkey in the Straw

Well, I'm moving on from Halloween. I don't have
children at home or children in my nice quite
retirement community. Ahhhh, retirement, wonderful.
I'm ready for turkey. Even if he is coming to
dinner dressed as a Pilgrim.

My image is colored with my Copics. I've used onion bag netting,
burlap, feathers and raffia for embellishment. The sentiment
comes with the image.

I'm Falling for Fall

Sorry for the silly title. But, I really am a
Fall kind of gal. I love the fall colors and the cooler
weather. Speaking of fall colors, on my blog travels I've seen
lots of different color combos. Purple plays a big part either with
orange or green or both. I made a tag using my new
favorite color combination.

My purple is showing up more pink than it really is.

This tag is for the following challenges

Tickets or Tags
Harvest Festival/Autumn
Purple and Green
Autumn Colors
Autumn Colors
All Nature
Colors of Fall
Anything Goes
Purple & Orange
Anything But a Card

Whew, that's quite a list for one little tag.

Crafting on the Road

From 2004 thru 2007, My husband and I traveled the US and parts
of Canada in our RV. Yep, we sold our home in Reno, Nv, and took off
to fulfill one of my dreams. I love to travel. I must say that being a full timer
in an RV was the way to go for me. It was just wonderful.

This is my first ever page about my RVing life.
In the Beginning.
This was my home on wheels....a 2004, Southwind with 3 slide outs.
You would be surprised at how comfy we were.

Yes, I traveled with as many crafting supplies as I could carry. I did my
crafting at the dining room table. This was my set up.
I guess you figured out we didn't eat at the table very often.

I made this page for the following challenges
That Project
Feels Like Home

For more scrapbooking fun join me at
where there is a Fonts challenge going on now.

Angel In the Morning

It was touch and go there for a while but I
got my embossed card finished. I used one of my
old forgotten brass plates and embossed the
old fashioned way.

There is lots of glitter and I colored the embossed
image with pastel chalks.
I'm not crazy how the bow looks in the scan. It's pretty
and sparkly white in real life.
Now, I'm humming that song.
The version that I remember is by Dusty Springfield.

This card is for the following challenges

If this isn't enough challenge sites for you to visit....
here are a couple of more that have new challenges up and
just waiting for you.

Tuesday Seems to be Digi Day for Me

Both of my papercraft projects today are digital creations.

This Scrapbook page is about a trip to my mom's home in

beautiful but really cold.

Sears Catalog Kit Home. It is the nicest, coziest home.
This LO is for the following challenges

This is a card that was so quick and easy to make. It took longer
to open my image program than to create.

To make the cute, quick and simple card I used a background paper
from the Fright Night Digital Papers Set
and Halloween Word Art by

Our challenge was to make a collage using all or parts of
these images. This is what I came up with.
