CHA bound

So tomorrow morning I hop on a train en-route to Chicago, to head out to CHA! Now you might be wondering, why I'm going so early...well, I am actually going to the trade show CHA first! I am accompanying my mom, who has been a member of CHA for about 25 years, and was just featured in the CHA make sure you check out the article on my mom, Roxie!

I am going specifically to get some great contacts for my digital art store, Frenzified, and to help get some contacts for my mom's business, Geiser-Weaver Assoc., LLC. The supershow at CHA July 30-31 I will not make however, because we decided to go visit family outside Chicago then, so I may or may not see some of ya'lls faces while out
Anyways, I hop on a train at 10am tomorrow (though I still have to work a night shift at my full-time job's gonna be a long couple of days!). So, if you don't hear from me this week, its because I'm at CHA!
Hopefully I can post some pictures afterwards or during for all those who can't come.
Hugs all!

July Ketchup....

So...I'm chilling around the house...since I have a 3-day weekend before I work 5 days, then traveling off to Chicago to CHA. I actually did the following 2 cards last weekend...but I was too busy to photograph them till today. It's been a crazy month...with practice for the show I'm in, work filled with big projects, me feverishly trying to get a new set made for Frenzified before CHA hits...and of course planning what to bring and do at CHA. So is any of my readers going to be at CHA also? I'm just wondering if I'd run into anyone out there. :)
Later in the trip out to Chicago, we have planned some stops (my mom and I) out to my Aunt, Uncle, and Cousin's house for a day and a half, then treking over to my Grandmother's house for another day and a half. It is gonna be a busy week, but I am looking forward to it all. :)
Ok, enough chit chat, you all came here to see some cards...and I've been slacking in that department lately. I apologize my readers. You probably were wondering where they heck I've wandered to. So without further ado, here is a birthday card and a get well card I made. I sat down last week and said to myself..."I don't want to make a card that is for anything or anyone in particular. I just want to create." And here we are. I used this green ribbon in my get well card first, then had it sitting out and decided it fit nicely with my birthday card. Enjoy!

The get well card's bandage and saying are from a cheap-o $1 woodblock stamp I got at ACMoore a while ago, and I REALLY wanted to make a card using it, I just never had the time to make it, since I didn't have a need to use it just yet. I think it's so adorable!

The birthday card is using the adorable "Fly Away" airplane set from Papertrey Ink, designed by the talented Becky Oehlers...who lives not that far from me I found out, so I thought I'd support the local gal! I made my own I apologize if they look funky. hehe

I hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday. I hope to get some stuff done today and tomorrow for Frenzified, so I can have my new "Fall Forever" set ready before I head to CHA. I know, I're probably thinking..."Fall! It's not even August yet!?" but alas...I know a lot of you like to work early, so I thought I'd crank it out, along with a Halloween set (which I hope to also have done, but if now, it will be ready shortly afterwards) so you can have a leg up on that season. I will leave you with this adorable little acorn I made for the Fall set. Technically I'm offering this little cutie as a freebie, so if you want, you can also save this from here, or wait till I put a higher res. version on Frenzified shortly. 

Enjoy all and have a great weekend!
Hugs to all of you!

Happy 4th of July!

So I know this is a little late, since 4th of July is today, but here is a card I made for the 4th! I have been scooping up the 50cents or $1 stamps around the area craft stores, since I had a total of 1 set for 4th of July. There has been some really awesome sets put out by Studio G, that are adorable!
Anyways, here is a card I made for the 4th and below that is a card I made for my card club for July. This month's theme for them is Red, White, & Blue and Sparkles. Since I knew I wouldn't be able to get the cards to them all by the 4th (I finished them up this Friday) I decided to go with a little sailboat theme.

(I used the leftover paper from my card club cards to make this one. I by no means am a good copics colorer, but I liked how her bathing suit came out. )

(This is what I stamped on the inside. Too cute! I love those $1 stamps!)

(Not my best card out there, but that's what I get for having to make 10 of have to calculate out how much supplies you need, so everyone gets roughly the same card. Took me a while too, so it made me so tired afterwards. lol)

Hope everyone is having a great 4th of July! We have been busy this weekend and busy today as well, so I am putting this together early and having it set to post later. Hugs all and enjoy your 4th of July!
