Best in Show By My Favorite things

I have been trying to get the courage up to enter a card challenge. I would go to sites that other card makers would mention and once there would chicken out. Have you seen the Cards by others in those challenges? Whoaaa …. There are so many talented people out there. No way I could possibly rate among them, or so I kept telling myself. Well Jess from A Card,s day work was having a live on you tube and she was making a card for a challenge and was very encouraging on just doing it. So I followed some of her advice and went to the MFT site and guess what, I did it. I entered my card into their color challenge and sketch challenge. Here is the card I created and entered.

is There such a thing as a challenge bug? If there is I caught it. Having to follow a set sketch was so much fun and removed a little of the uncertainty of the layout when creating.

If you would like to see the process I used to make the card the video is on my You Tube channel and here is the link.
if you go check it out please subscribe and comment so I know you were there… ok ya,lol I’m off to see what other challenges are out there…Oh Jess you have created a monster …lmao

Patiently Waiting

Today is the day my Starter Kit for Stampin’ Up! Arrives. Can we say anxiety creator… trying to keep my nerves calm about this Because I am like a kid on Christmas Eve waiting for Santa over this. I keep looking out window at every car sound I hear to see if it is the Mail lady.

So in my Kit I am receiving January’s Paper Pumpkin Kit, which is a paper-crafter’s dream kit. Every thing you need to create a project like cards,treat bags and other type of projects is in the box. So say the monthly kit is a card kit you will receive everything to create said card. Every box with a small stamp set paper ribbon and anything else needed to make the monthly project. How convenient right. Ok well I am just rambling out of excitement. I will do an unboxing live on my You Tube channel once it arrives and show y’all what my words might not have.  And if your interested in subscribing to Paper Pumpkin I’m your girl just contact me or follow link on home page to get Started so you can Participate in classes I will be offering once I have all supplies needed and course outlines.

Florida Oranges

So there is an Orange tree in my Back yard, and it is Full of Fruit. So This afternoon I decided to pick some and make some homemade Fresh Squeezed O.J. Well after fighting the Moss, bugs and palmetto bushes in the way to tree I picked about 8 that looked the best. (Which were still not like you see in the grocery store) . Ok so now I have my Oranges and go back in the house to make my Juice. First I put them all on the counter and play catch as they roll off in different directions. Once I get them to stay in one spot I pull out the juicer, a cutting board and knife. Next I begin to cut them and they are full of Juice and that Juice is Sticky. Anyway I cut them one half at a time and I let this wonderful little electric juicer whiz away. Well 5 Oranges down and I finally have one cup of Orange Juice. What is my point? Living in Florida must mean fresh oranges, right? Yes and No. Yes if you can get the trees to grow. But unless you just enjoy Bug Bites Brushes with the sharp points of the palmetto frond, and moss in your face (which carry chiggers but that’s another story) Then Living in Florida Happily means going to your Local Grocery Store and giving them your money for some OJ and enjoy it by sitting at your kitchen table looking out the window at the Pretty Orange tree saying to self “Not Today Buggies Not Today”
