Retro Sketches #1 and Back to work!

This is my last Friday of vacation, I spent the first 3 days of the week in Orientation, and our awesome meet and greet the kids and parents night. I'm very excited to get back to work. Though my hanging out with my boy is done for now, I look forward to the nights and weekends with him.
Anyways, I found this web page that does Retro Sketches, it helps you out a bit when you get stuck on a design
There are a lot to look at, and they post different cards from those sketches.

1st Christmas Santa Tag

I started the first Christmas tag MONTHS early, But its always good to get an early start. Christmas is one of my favorite Holidays..I love everything about it, so lately I've been doing a lot of Christmas things for friends, I put them in a box when I'm done so they are kept safe.
I saw this cute tag on the internet , but of course forgot to save it so I could go back and give proper credit for the design..
Very Cute!

Secret Garden - Power of two

I've been keeping up with the Convention posts and pictures of all the great things that are going on there in UTAH! SO Jealous!!..Next year I'm definitely going to be there!..
As I was making this card, DH was on my mind so I thought this was a perfect sentiment for my thought .
"Never underestimate the Power of two".
That describes DH and I..That's how we've always been..We can do anything as long as we do it together.
 Love is Good, A Honest True Marriage filled with that Love is Even better!
(ok all done with the sappy stuff ;) )

Back To School Gifts

Giving Gifts....
A very long day !..I finally finished two things on my "To do" list before this weekend. I made a quick "Back to School Survival Kit" for 2 of my co workers as a litte joke. Working with Autistic Children (Or any children), we are constantly using hand sanitizer, kleenex for faces and post it notes, because we constantly forget to write things down. So these were made for two of my favorite coworkers from a Tutorial by Lisa Young. Inside it will hold a small bottle of Sanitizer, Kleenex and Post it notes..
I think they will get a kick out of it ;)..
Have a FAB Friday!!

Creamy Chicken and Asparagus

I love Asparagus, I finally got my son to try it after he gave one of those looks of "Ew mother"..The repeating comment of "Just try one bite, you'll like it"..He tried it and
Now he eats it every time I make it. I'm not much of a pasta eater, But I love Chicken in just about anything. Here's a Fantastic looking Recipe from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom

Stuffed Zuchini

I love being able to go from one interesting link on a blog to finding another link to an awesome Recipe. The joy's of blogging huh?...
I haven't spent much time in the craft room, Remodeling the bathroom and entertaining a 16 yr old and his friends this summer keeps me busy. Throw in his Girlfriend, a Home Business and getting ready to go back to work in 2 weeks, we have a busy house. I'm always looking for things that I can make that doesn't consist of Junk food that the kids can snack on. I got lucky my sons friends are more health eaters then junk eaters.
So this looks very tasty!..
You Can check out the Recipe by going to Kayotic Kitchen

Hearts a Flutter Framelit "Thanks" card

We are up kinda late tonight, DH and I just got done with our run and swim in the pool, he decided to do the dishes and I started crafting, I was searching through Color Q , looking for some other color combinations I could use. I found a design template that I wanted to try out using the Hearts a Flutter Framelits.


Color Queen Challenge

I decided after running into a Site that uses all Stampin Up colors (retired & new) to submit to one of the Challenges using the Pallet of Summer Starfruit, Pool party, Grey, Orchid Opulance . You can check out the Challenge HERE
This was the outcome

Technique using Masking tape

Using Masking tape as a background effect.
I saw this on The Technique Zone.
I haven't tried this before. Has anyone else tried this?.
My concern would be once you have the tape down and have stamped/sponged on it, does the tape rip the background cardstock when taking it off.
Its a great idea however.
Many Possibilities
