My son's school asks us as parents to help our children make masks for the kids, so they won't wear costumes but have a mask contest/parade at school. So here is what my oldest wanted us to make him, and my middle guy was home sick...he didn't get to go to school to enjoy the fun.
I saw the new Embellish Magazine challenge, and just HAD to do it...especially since there was a cute owl to use that they created for us :). LOVE how my card turned out, love this color combo too and am going to have to use this combo again sometime.
Here is what I came up with using this challenge, try this color combo/OWL challenge I dare ya :)! Thank you so much Embellish for these challenges, they are a lot of fun :)!
Thought I would do this sketch, here is what I came up with :)! I made this first thing this morning, as I was waiting for my Mom to come out to help me out today.
We took the wrap/gauze off my knee, oh boy I wasn't expecting to find what I did. There were two big incisions, then there were 3 other little one's around the larger one's. Am thinking that sure my surgeon was a *HOTTIE* but he needs to work on his stitching, because it isn't as nice a job as one would expect. Fraken knee is what I call my knee, just in time for Halloween...don't worry I am not going to show you.

For those of you who didn't know, yesterday morning I had knee surgery on my left knee...basically it is genetics and sports combo issue but something I have to live with for the rest of my life. I have Osteo Arthritis, am referred to the pain clinic to help me work with/manage the pain and the surgery was a temporary fix but would love if it lasts longer. The surgeon did a re-lateral release, as the guy who did it before did it wrong or it healed wrong or both :( plus they also looked around my joint line and cleaned out the back of my knee cap again. This is my third surgery!

Here is Mojo Monday's sketch for this week, and here is what I came up with using this sketch.
I know the card is simple and basic, but that is what I wanted to do a simple/basic kind of card :)! Try out this sketch, I dare ya :p!
Saw these two sketch challenges this morning, and I wanted to try my hand at these challenges. Loved doing the MTSC44 challenge, it was fun and it wasn't a card I had done yet either :)! I also wanted to participate in the There She Goes card challenge, and thought I could create one card for both challenges.
So here is what I came up with for both of these challenges :)! This card is easy to do, and can be quite easily mass produced in very little time, and was fun to do :).

I found this great stamp set from Carousel Rubber stamp store the other day, and it is by Stampabilities. I just had to get it to create some fun boy cards :)! I used the Cuttlebug diamond print plate embossing folder for this background, and I used some tinfoil too something everyone should have around their house :). Neat eh??

Last night we had5 gals out including myself, sadly we were missing 3 gals and one of our gals Yvonne sadly moved away to Texas. Hope to see you guys out again soon :)! The first project we did was mine, knew I should have done something different...am a little frustrated with myself. I know the girls are going to tell me they loved it and not to worry about it...lol! The next project was Val's, she did a technique card with us and it was almost like the one we did last time with Deborah but a tad different. I am going to have to get Val to tell us what this technique was called, because I forget. Lol, my poor memory is getting worse :(! Gorgeous eh?? Thank you so much Val, LOVED this technique :)!

Today, in the mail I received this GORGEOUS card from Madge Haycock :)! Thank you so much Madge I LOVE this card, it is so stunning :)! I decided to give the Canadian Card Exchange another try, I have done it several times in the past to only be kind of disappointed with some of the cards I received. So I signed up for this round of it, and so far I am THRILLED to pieces I joined this round :)! I have been meaning to give this card style a try, but just haven't gotten around to doing it...think I might just have to try one today at some point.
I got another freebie over at Mo's again yesterday, and as soon as I saw the image I knew what kind of card I wanted to make. Can't seem to get enough of her images :)! I wanted to make "waves" on the front of the card, so I just ripped up strips of different color blue card stock and then layered them.

This weeks challenge is to use colors that remind you of Fall and to use only 2 embellishments. Your image does not have to be a Fallimage, although it can, just use colors that remind you of Fall. The limited embellishments will make sure that Mo's fabulous image is the main focal point of the card. Head on over to the challenge blog and check out other neat things :)!

Sorry, had to remove the last card I made as I decided I had to do something different with it as I wasn't happy with it. Lol, so I will be back tomorrow with the redo of this card :)!

Okay, so I thought it would be a great time to update you all on what has occurred since school started :)! My oldest is doing really well with school, loves to write and loves to build things too :)! My middle guy is having lots of trouble with school, has shown signs of regression and we are trying to get him the BEST services we can. On that same note a friend of mine and myself have taken it upon ourselves to fight for more support services and speech therapy all across our city, we are going to do a presentation at the end of November to our school board. Someone has to fight for our children's education, especially those children that have special needs :)! At our school we have 1 speech therapist to 49 children, she is at our school 1 day a week for an hour or two...how are these kids benefiting from that??? If the school board won't help us we are starting a petition and are taking our concerns to the media!! My dd is doing well, we started going to a weekly playgroup in our area and we try to goto the library almost every week...so she can play with other children :)!

This morning when I walked up my driveway at 6:57 a.m., to take my 2 boys up to their bus stop and here is what spectacular view I found. These are the exact colors I was seeing, it was gorgeous :)! This was a WOW moment, what a beautiful sun rise :) that I just had to share it with all of you! As the time passed the more spectacular it became, and then it just faded away and became a grey day...

I had gotten this stamp set awhile ago, I wanted to create a card to give to my friend as she speaks Spanish and would think this card is cute :)! Anyways, I didn't get around to finishing this card until today...hope you get a little chuckle from this card like I did. The sentiment says "Moo-chas Grass-ias"!
