Put the Lime in the Coconut and Drink it All Up…!


Back with today’s Challenge!

Today’s Challenge is a Sketch Challenge from

Try Stamping on Tuesday #385



Here is the Challenge!

TSOT 385

I flip the Sketch 90* to the left!


Here is my Card!


I really love the Lemon Lime Twist and Basic Black Combo!

I liked the  Fern leaves on the back DSP…very Tropical feeling

and a Get Well Card!

Hence, the ‘Lime in the Coconut’

You’ve got the tune in your head now, don’t you? LOL!


Here is the inside of my Card!


I brought the Fern Paper inside! The Fern DSP is from some paper I had

in my stash…I kept it and few other pages of the 12 X 12 pad, but I can’t

remember the name of the Company…so sorry.

I kept this page and some ‘fruit’ pages…

I gave the rest of the DSP pad away to a fellow stamper Friend!

I like this Color Combo!

There is a New Color we have that Stampin’Up! has in the Brights Collection

by the name of Granny Apple Green. It seems to be close to this Color, but a bit darker!

I may give that Combo a try and see if I like it too!

Until the next Post…Blessings and Well Wishes to you ALL!

I’ll Be Back…

Hello Friends!

I have been MIA here for a couple of days…I will get back to working in the Craft Room and will share some more Cards with you soon, perhaps in a day or two.

I will get going soon, just got tied up with getting things done here around my home. I still haven’t decorated…I usually wait till Dec 1st…but while I’m on down time…maybe sooner!

I have a few dates coming up with activities here in the Harbour that are connected to the Garden Club and I must be there for them! I will share with you what those activities are when they happen! I will take pics! One is a Parade, here in the Harbour (shorter route this year because of all the Hurricane damage, still have blocked streets with household and construction garbage!) The other is a trip to Selma for a Christmas Show with a few of the ladies from the Garden Club! This is an Annual Trip for the gals!

I also am head of the Committee for the Annual Bus Trip. We already have the place to visit for the Garden Club aspect!!!! Now I need to take another trip to Gardner to find a place to eat and a place to shop, after our tour of the Gardens!

Keeping busy and loving it…

Until the next Post…Blessings and Happy Decorating to you ALL!

Today’s Card is for a Technique Challenge from

TGIFC #187

TGIF 187-sponge worthy

Sponging technique! So many to choose from…I chose to use

my sponging for a background light!


Here is my Card!


I used my Stamparatus for the Dragonfly…it is 2 step stamping for the

Dragonfly, and then the wings, for color! But first, I punched a circle with

the Starburst Punch and then used it as a template to sponge the ‘sun’!

Oh Christmas Tree…!

Hello All!

Do you all have memories of going out to get your Christmas Tree?

Mr. Hubster and I would go out every year and get our tree!

The local tree lot in town, would be full of trees, wreaths, boughs, and such!

I love the smell of Pine! Real Pine!

Today’s Card is for an Inspirational Photo Challenge

from Just Add Ink #435

Here is the Challenge!


This picture reminded me of the tree lots at Christmas!



Here is my take on the Challenge!


Every time I look at this, I want to take a deep sniff for the pine smell!

Here is the inside of my Card!


Brought the ‘lot’ inside too!

On Another Note…

Hope you had a great Weekend…I got a lot done that needed to get done!

After spending much time on making Craft Show items.

 I totally neglected the housework AND laundry!

Good thing we have more clothing than what is needed for one week to wear!

Laundry caught up, house cleaned, AND I wrapped ALL my Christmas

gifts for the families up North AND they are in their boxes, sealed, labeled,

and ready for mailing, for Christmas!

WhooHoo! THAT feels good!

AND I made this Card! (and also Tuesday’s Card!)

Hope you all are getting organized and ready for the Season!

I know my 3 Sister’s were decorating their homes this weekend!

I have one item…a cute slat tree I bought at Wal-Mart…on the front Porch!

I may start dragging more stuff down and start decorating this week!


Until the next Post…Blessings and Fun Christmas Decorating to you ALL!
