FTTC123 Krafty Rose


I am so glad that Betty is allowing kraft cardstock on the challenge today. I dropped off the paper grocery sacks that I had at the recycle yesterday. So, today I go into our little grocery store & asked if they have any lunch sacks... nope, they only stock those with the school supplies in July & Aug. It was too hot... really, I was too lazy to drive to the next town over for sacks!

Happy Father's Day!


I saw this youtube video called "It's the Dad Life" ... too cute!!!

Here is a card I made for my Dad for Father's Day. He took the boys fishing several weeks ago, so they thought the fishing card was the way to go. They really enjoy fishing with Grandpa, even if Grandpa doesn't get to fish much!! LOL! Happy Father's Day, Dad! I love you!


Personal Photos



The boys had a state archery competition on Saturday. It was *only* a few degrees over 100*. It was a walking course... it was the first one of this kind that we have done. The path was kept really nice, but on the sides of the path, it had grown up a little. I love the picture of Dylan with his "game face" on. He was focused on the next target. The target that the boys are shooting at is called a "hunter's target". It was one of the 3 rounds that they had to shoot. They had a lot of fun. In fact, they were ready for more... I on the other hand was glad that they were finished!!! :D
They were in a group
with 3 other kids. There were only 2 of the kids that competed against each other & they were super about being a good sport. We are waiting on the scores to be published to see if they broke any state records.

Paper & Such Challenge Hang in There

I have a friend who is going through a rough time right now. When I saw the inspiration challenge photo on Paper & Such, I knew I wanted to make a card to send out to her. I saw the blue & the ruffled flowers. I added stickles to the center of each flower.

The hydrangea is a free digi stamp that can be found here. The sentiment is from a Kaisercraft Get Well set that I got in the Paper & Such store.

Just Call Me Robin Hood!

Yesterday, Devin had his first official Robin Hood arrow!!! It means that he had an arrow in the x of the target & the 2nd arrow that he shot hit the same spot, going through the end of the arrow already in the target. Because the arrows are made of carbon & not of wood it didn't shatter the arrow, but it did break the knock & it split the bottom arrow a little. It will be good enough for practice but it will be marked & "retired" from competition.

Of course, these were brand new arrows... we had him re-measured, etc & had just barely... like 2 min... paid for the arrows. He had an audience when he did it, including the man who fletched the arrows!!! He was so excited!!! Now... let's hope that it doesn't happen soon!!! *sigh* We had gotten him new limbs a few months ago & he's already outgrown them... of course it meant a new string, new rest, new arrows... but WOW! he's shown incredible improvement already!!! (I need a money tree... I'm willing to take a cutting or even seeds... anyone???? )

The store owner's wife took a picture of him in front of the target, but I wanted a picture for me. I didn't have my camera with me yesterday. Guess I'm going to have to start taking it with me everywhere!

Everyone was telling him that we needed to start a blog to keep track of his accomplishments... good thing I know of a really good blog designer!!! *grin*

I have a card to share in a little while. So I'll be back shortly with a card post.
