Challenge #227 - Laugh Out Loud

Challenge at Meljen's this week is LOL and she is giving a cute digi to use if you need.
Here is what I came up with.
The digi I used you can get here 
And the clover... is a very nice tutorial over at Norma's
She has some wonderful crafting she shares, go check her out.
Although I don't have the dies she used I do have a couple of daisy punches I used instead. and for the clover leaves I used an egg punch and cut them to a point. It isn't as nice as her's by a long way, but hey it worked. LOL The little bee is Fimo fingernail art and covered Meljen's digi bee except for the wing tips. I like it... And for some reason I just get tickled when I read the saying the other day. and it stuck with me and needed to be made into a card.
I have also been working on some bookmarks so stay tuned... Up next.

First have to go to town mom and I want a couple of chicks before they are gone. Araucana last for the season, buy 2 get 3 free. So maybe we can keep a couple.  also fencing the coop so the darn cat will stay out. We hope!

Why do some people think it is fine if they spam blogs? I have been getting comments for way past post and all it is is spam for them to add links to their sites or who knows what as I wont click on them and I won't post them to my blog. So if one does get by and I don't catch it PLEASE don't click on any links. I have comment moderation on just so I can keep my blog clean and spam free. Hope it works. To all who post genuine comments, Thank you for stopping by and leaving some luv. I try to read everything and look at your blogs too if you have one.
Have a Gr8 Day!!!

Meljen's Challenge #226 - School Supplies

I have been wanting to do one of these again so bad... They are fun and I just love to see what everyone can come up with. I have a couple of cookies in this box for Felix for an after school treat.
We use to bake together after school sometimes but now we live too far apart I will have to just send him some.
Nthing like waiting til the last minute and squeaking it in... But hopefully I do this time. Sssssqquueeaakkk!!!!!!
The pencil is 3D and so are the stars. It is white card spattered with paper smooches.
 And Felix being a boy I didn't want to make it bling ;-)
So very simple Paper clip added to hold the note Treat. The digi is from Meljen's Here
The box is from My Scrap Chick Here
Both of these sites have great sales and weakly freebies. Go check them out!
Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

Lil Update

I'll keep this short and no pictures this time. I have them just wont post...
Bug- aka Little Lorna was making mac n cheese and got scalded from the knees down. Right leg is worse than left. She spent first night in hospital to manage pain.  She has 1st and 2nd degree burns and blisters. What a brave little girl though. She did real well with the Dr.'s, she said can I help so it wont hurt so much and they let her.
Mom and I have eye appointments and I will try to post something crafty soon. I have done a little bit here and there. We are in the middle of building the new balcony off mom's upstairs bedroom. And school just started again for Felix. So Busy busy....

I have done something I didn't think I would. I joined facebook for a week. LOL I wanted to join a couple of group I follow their blogs and you can get free digis by liking them on FB. So I thought why not. My computer has been running like poo and so was my phone. So although I would love to have the digis I deleted my account and am not longer on FB! Took me 3 hrs to clean everything up and now we are back running.
Some of the ones I liked were:
Sherri Baldy, My Besties. I think they are so cute! I had signed up and didn't realize you have to be on FB to get the freebie.
Imagine That! Digis by Kris, Scrapper's Delights. And a couple of others. I really like their work and would love to have the freebies and buy some when I can, but I will not join FB to get them. Not worth the hassle.

Here are the cards I have recently made. 
First one was for Bug, she has been helping me with the chickens.
These little ones are fuzzy too. 
 This one if for a dear friends daughter, in her favorite colors.
 This one and the next were going to be for Scrappers Delight challenge. But I deleted my FB account. LOL 3D
 This one isn't totally 3D I used washi tape for the wall paper. Cuttlebug for the brick paper and white washed it with gesso, used a wonderful paste by Sheel for the window frame. for the texture.
Well not much else, but it is after 12:30 pm so guess I should try to get some sleep.
Night! XOXO Nana

Some days..........

Some days really take their toll... and what really stinks is when you don't even know why it is so bad. Today is one of those days... All I can do is cry and I have no idea why. Sometimes I think if I at least knew why I felt so crappy I could work it out faster. Well in my mind it sounds good.

Let see what has been going on??? Do you really care? LOL No, but I am going to type it anyway.

Fighting the neighbors cat to keep it away from the Chickens. Gave the mean hens and extra rooster away. Having fun Bonnie? ha ha ha!!!!

Working on hen house and got hit in the face with a hammer head when it came flying off the handle. In my 50's and got my first black eye and I gave it to myself (rolling eyes) Dr had me go through a cat scan to make sure I didn't break anything or have brain bleed. Nope just a good old fashioned concussion. (Just) And a headache that lasted almost as long as the shinner.

Went to Portland to see Carla and went to see a blues singer- Robert Cray.
It was put on by THPRD: Groovin In The Grass
Sat on a hill of the park away from everyone. Nice breeze blew so no bad smells to make me sick. (Getting there was another thing though) Lovely music you can see a clip here. It was nice to see hubby so relaxed and enjoying the music. Wish J could have been there too. He is fun to be with while people watching.

DD got new glasses and they broke, so had to come up and get them fixed, what a hassle! Got home and they broke again. So they will be coming back this week as P has a Dr appointment too. This time it isn't going to cost her to get them fixed. You'd think glasses would last longer than a week... If they are done right... Just sayin..

Well can't much think of more, well I can but why rehash the whole past. Doesn't change the past or help the future. So move on.

On a very Good note: Welcome back MyMoT! I love you and your wife so much!!! Missing you both too.

Well writing has stopped the tears for now. Maybe I can make a card of two.. See you all later. I know myself it won't' be sooner. LOL
