Time Slipped Away

I really want to be able to post something at least once a week.  Time has slipped away from me and this hasn't happened.  I haven't been idle though.  I am always working on something but not always so good at taking pictures. 

I made my daughter a goofy little sock monkey.  The sock monkey thing started when I made my grandson his sock monkey.  Then his mommy wanted one, so I made her one out of a purple striped pair of socks that I picked up at the thrift store. (It was new...not used)  Now my other daughter wants one.  I suspect there are many more to come.

I didn't get a picture before I mailed it off so I had my daughter email me a picture.  You can't really see her hat but I made a pink and purple polka-dot bow and attached it to the hat.  I named her "Dotty".

Circular Step Card

I love making different cards.  My brain just seems to close down when I try to make a "regular" card. By "regular" I just mean stamping and decorating a "regular" close card.  Does that make sense?  I do enjoy making different folded cards.  Step cards have been really difficult for me. I don't know why.  I swear I am dyslexic when I am cutting and folding.  They always come out backward and sometimes I will do the same mistake cut three times.  At that point.  I throw it away and walk away from the craft table.  I will always come back to it a little later because I just refuse to let paper defeat me.

This is a circular side step card that I used as an entry in the CFC Outlawz challenge as my second card.  The dragonfly image was drawn by Sandi Huggett.

Summer is coming to a close

Oh so sad.  I hate to see summer come to a close.  It went so fast I don't even remember what I did.  I did spend some quality time with my grandkids and I think that is most important. 

My blog has been kind of neglected for awhile but I expect that since summer is winding down I will be able to devote more time.

This card was an entry for the CFC Outlawz challenge for the weeks of August 26 through September 8.  Anne Fenton was the fabulous artist for this digi.
