Your a fab friend!

Happy Friday everyone! Hope everyone had a good week. Its so pretty outside here today I have all the doors open and the laundry hanging outside on the line. Its been a productive day here I have done some laundry and cleaned. And we got our Tv fixed, the screen was messed up. Cant understand though why on earth they get a 1400.00 dollar screen for our tv when we only paid 800.00 for All total the bill was almost 2,200 for a 800.00 tv. And no we did not have to pay a dime we had warranty on the tv at best buy. Firm believer in warranty's on The Geek squad guy was great and he got it fixed but had he told me how much it was going to run I would have said hey how about we call it done and credit us for our tv and well just get another one. We could have saved them that expense and we could have got a little bigger tv it would have been a win Oh well lesson learned next time I will for sure ask how much even if its not coming out of our pockets. So that has been my day, here in a bit I am going for a bike ride since its so nice.  After the much needed rain we got this week it nice to see the sun and it be 70 plus outside. But the lake is now over the normal level so that is a blessing considering we was 7 ft below normal. I guess I can say lest out part of Texas is getting out of the drought. We have to mow this weekend with all the rain its got pretty tall. And we have more weeds than grass so we have to work on Anyway thought I pop in and share a card I made. The stamp I used is from the Michael's 1.00 area stamps. I thought it turned out pretty cute for only being 1.00. I colored some parts in with a blender pen and ink pads. Will say blender pens are pretty handy to have around if you like to stamp images. I also added some glossy accents to the eyes to make them dimension. Anyway hope everyone has a great weekend and you are having wonderful spring weather as well. :) Supplies will be listed below thanks for looking

Patches of Pink Design Team and link up Party

This month the Patches Of Pink designers were asked to make something spring themed. I was super excited to see the theme cause spring is one of my favorite seasons. I love Spring! Enjoy sunshine and the warmer weather, opening the doors and letting fresh air in. Spring is normally when my bike riding starts again but I have been able to bike ride since late Jan because its been a really mild late winter. Which I am a little scared to see what summer will be like for Last year here in Texas it was so bad here, very little rain over spring and then almost every day of summer we had triple digits. We had a bad drought and many wild fires. But this year so far we have done good for spring we have had pretty good rain showers and lake levels are coming back up.
We have had to start mowing the yard, its green and growing like crazy and the roses are already budding with soon to be roses. Soon will be enjoying fresh cut roses My favorite things to do in spring is get the flower beds cleaned up and fresh mulch put in and get some fresh flowers planted. Last year we planted our first big vegetable garden and it did great during spring but the heat got to it and we did not get alot off of it. So this year I think we are gonna plant a smaller one to see how it does. Our yard has a garden area that is fenced off so it just begs to have something in But we are not gonna go over board like last year.
Garden last year not long after planted in Spring
So that brings me to what spring theme project I did for Patches of Pink. Since I am was sure we be making lest a small simple garden I made some garden stakes to mark the plants. Thought that was spring I bought the stakes at Michaels and then did some stamping, Since they will be outside I used stazon ink. And to make it even more weather proof you can seal it with spray sealer. I am not sure how it will do but I figured I give it a try, last year we used paint sticks and a I wanted to have something a little nicer.

Now make sure to hop over Patches Of Pink and post your latest spring themed projects for the Patches of Pink Link up party. Love seeing the wonderful projects that everyone links up. Thanks for looking and hope everyone is having a great spring so far.

Target 1.00 card kit

Hello hope everyone is having a good week so far. This week seems to be going by so fast for some Guess its cause I have been working around the house and getting some bike riding in as well. So that is what I have been up to but I did make time to craft a few days ago. Meant to have this up sooner but my computer has had a mind of its own this last Anyways last week I was in Target as normal (one of my favorite stores lol) and had to stop by the 1.00 area. The 1.00 area is one of my favorite places to just stroll through and see what kind of handy or crafty items I can find. I found this card kit and it just called my name. I love bird cages so just had to get it, and it was only a 1.00! It included enough to make three cards. It has some ideas on the back but I come up with my own.

Most the card kit was pretty good the envelopes are kinda thin so I chose not to use them. I used the card and trimmed it to fit a long skinny card. What I used for this card from the kit was one card which I used as patterned paper for the card.  The black gems and the black bow, also used the bird cage art that come with the kit. The things I had I used were the prima flowers and the black ribbon, black card stock, and metal accent. Here is what I come up with.

So next time your in Target don't just go by the 1.00 area thinking they don't have anything good. Yes you have to pick and choose cause some of it is not worth even a But they do have some cute stuff. I have got some cute little storage tins there that I love to keep small stuff in. Well thanks for stopping by and looking. :)
