JUNE 30, 2012***SATURDAY***WINNER- DL.ART Thankful Thursday challenge

Good Morning Friends,

I guess I was loopy yesterday I thought it was the last day of June. Today is. Happy Last day of the month
Here is my adventure. Monday I hurt my right shoulder moving the shed preparing the area for the painting crew

I did not realize until Tuesday morning how bad it hurt until I started sweating profusely and then having the chills and then down right getting sick--- I won't go into detail there.  Tuesday I sat in one spot almost the whole day. On Wednesday I thought it might be a little better. Thursday I decided I needed to go to Urgent care, Hubby took me Thank goodness, I love him to pieces. Three hours and five X-RAYS later, I find out I have a torn ligament by the sternum and clavicle, a rip in the AC near the arm and shoulder, and a pulled muscle at the trapezius and up my neck.ouch! ouch! ouch!  They prescribed pain killer and muscle relaxers, so I took them for two days and stopped last night. I did not like the reaction's I was having to the medicine. However I did liked not feeling the pain (being at 14 on a scale from 1-10), I thought it was a good idea. The pain is barely bearable, but I am going to try to go without and hope I don't do any further injury. It does not hurt too much typing as long as I keep my arm really close to my side. Unfortunately I don't think I will be able to do any cards for a while. 
I am a little ahead, I have done some of my projects for design team posts and thank goodness for pre-posts.

My DL.ART Thursdays will still continue, the good news is I will be able to comment more


Congratulations Karen of little scrap pieces. Please send me your snail mail address so I can get your prize out to you.

Be blessed, I am for knowing each of you, Diana

JUNE 27, 2012***WEDNESDAY***OUCH!!!!!

Hi friends,

Thanks for the well wishes and prayers.  I am not sure what I did , but I have a lump on my collarbone 2" in diameter. When I woke up yesterday I was in so much pain I got sick.

I have been icing and heating it for the last two days. I think the cause of the pain was from moving the outdoor furniture on Monday,  so the painters could do the power washing, which they did today.

I will have a Thankful Thursday posted for tomorrow, but it will be different so come and check it out.

I'm going to head to the Dr.'s tomorrow, I think it might be  something serious. I will let you know.
Be blessed, Diana

JUNE 25, 2012***MONDAY*** Mothers day Bouquet revisited

Good Morning Friends,

When Flower shoppe came out I fell in love with that cartridge, but I still have fond memories for mothers day bouquet.  There are so many different shapes on this cartridge.

So I thought I would pull it out and play with it get a few challenges in, and I am procrastinating getting on with the preparation for th painting. I better get on with it so here is the info on my card.

The card base is PTI fine linen The squares and the border are from paper trimmings using "Enjoy the season" Imagine cartridge.
The flower and the leaves are from Mothers Day Bouquet, printed from the basic imagine colors
the stamp is Pink Paislee  ( sprout a little smile) in Jenni Bowlin cough syrup ink .

Love to Create: anything goes

Have a great and blessed day Diana

JUNE 25, 2012***MONDAY*** Green and Yellow

Good Morning Everyone,

I have to say this is going to be a rather busy next few weeks for us, the paint crew arrives on Wednesday to begin the preparation for painting the outside of the house. They begin by power washing, so I need to get out door furniture away from the structure.  I only have one object that will need my attention. 

Green, Yellow and no sentiment. I used a lemon pro marker on the flowered green paper to add color. The ribbon is grosgrain from Offray. All the papers are PTI except for the yellow checked that was in my scrap pile. The twine is Caribbean from the Twinery. I really think it needs a sentiment and I think I will flip it horizontally and add one, For some reason it just looks unfinished to me.

Mim w/Kraft: anything goes
Mim: anything goes

Have a blessed day, Diana

JUNE 24, 2012***SUNDAY***SUMMER Fun and Cool treats

Hi Friends,

It is 63 degrees right now, the clouds against the blue sky are so crisp and it all looks and feels very refreshing.  I made this card last night thinking about summer and all the colors and treats that make for a wonderful summer experience. My card stock is PTI Kraft and the dotted paper is Echo park Happy days the other patterned paper is My minds eye Indie Chick "Saffron"

My ice cream cone and pop sickles are from doodle charms, color flooded with enjoy the seasons.  Summer, the water wings girl and the pool are all from enjoy the season. I used glossy accent to give the water "wetness". The little red flower with yellow in the middle is a creative charms embellishment.

My sentiment under Summer "Every single day" is from PTI, and when you pull the tab it reads,
" I am even more grateful for you"

I erased the lines, but there really is no need they will not be seen.

I sure hope you are all enjoying the summer and staying cool.

Dutch Dare: summer fun

Good Morning,

It is so good to be back home, we are 40 degrees cooler here-- Can you believe that?
It was 105 at my MIL's and 64 here.  We even got a bit of early morning sprinkles today , very refreshing.

Most of the day has been laundry groceries and catching up on projects that are coming up and trying to visit everyone. I did happen to make a few cards while I was away. I took my scrap carrier with me. I  got to visit a fairly New Michael's store also.

What I have found in my shopping at the craft stores is that the newer they are, the less deals you will find (as far as clearance)  It was fun, all I bought was a Tombow permanent tape runner refill and the only reason I got that, was I had a temporary with me  and my cards were not staying together.

The cricut cartridge I used is stretch your imagination, the rest were just scraps I had and Iused liquid pearls white opal

BBTB2: birthday with pearls

Good morning Friends,

By now you should all know, green is my favorite color.  The funny thing is it use to be purple and then one day I wore green with purple  and it has been love ever since.

So check this out.

 I had no idea until I got them home.  I think I have been bitten by the bug, or it is subliminal, anyway I thought they were a good match.

I photographed them before I used them.  You may see them  again through their journey with me.  This is the only time you will see them on the table with the cricut (because they are clean)

Have a Blessed day, Diana
