Better than 3 weeks right?? I didn't start until after I was already late ladies!! But atleast I caught up on some galleries today and tomorrow I will go for the animal print card!

I received this challenge from Lim at the Voices in my Head

Open the folder "my pictures".
In the 6th folder, take the 6th picture and post it on your blog.
Write something about the picture.
Challenge 6 new people to join this challenge.
I'm very thankful that the sixth picture in the 6th folder was a cute one!! This is our kitty Mocha (we got her in the Spring) sitting on my sons craft table!! Now she is really big and all black and beautiful, so her name doesn't go with her too well!! But she is a really good kitty, even likes water and baths!! Good thing for my allergies!!

RAK's received since Christmas!!

This card is an RAK from another Twister Sister! We call her Perk and her SCS name is coffeestamper. Sue is a very sweet and caring person. One day I was on SCS, saw it was her birthday and asked her for her address and we've been friends ever since! Even our children have exchanged RAK's !!
It's so hard for me to get a good picture lately beacaus of my shaky hands and I think the camera battery too. Anyway, I saw this in her gallery and asked if there was an envelope with it that had my name on it and a few days later I received it in the mail with some fabulous images!! I don't know if you can tell, but the head is raised and has CE on it!! Fabulous paper, coloring, it was just love at first sight!! Thanks so much Sue and Great BUG HUGS to you and Christopher!
There is a link to coffeestamper on the left, check her gallery out and get inspired!!
RAK from my Sistah Pat!!
Her SCS Gallery is on the left, be sure to go check it out!! She is a fabulous stamper, very creative and talented!! Pat and I met a year ago on SCS over a horse card and I think it's the best thing that has ever happened to me and just when I needed it most. I thank God for sending her down my path! I've never met her, but I love her like I have known her forever! She is full of faith, love, compassion.............................
She sent this card along with some of that fabulous paper that was on her Christmas card isn't it adorable and beautiful all at the same time. I love the new swirly thingy she put on it. The colors are awesome as chocolate chip is my favorite! The button DP is actually textured like you can feel them, very cool! The image is adorable and colored so well! There is CE o the pot and cup that just makes them stand out so beautifully, but again bad photographer!! The ribbon is luxurious and the little heart says it all!!
Thanks so much Patti!

RAK from Lee at My Reality..........It's all Good!!
Be sure and stop by her blog and take a looksie, she is an amazingly talented stamper and a wonderful person too! I call this the magical tree!
I'm sorry that I didn't do this card justice with my picture taking abilities, it is absolutely Gorgeous, I mean totally fabulous!! Just look at all the bling on the branches of the tree, enchanting!! I love, love, love the papers, layout, ribbons....absolutely everything!! Thanks so much Lee! Love and Hugs to you!! and where did you get the stamp on the back of the card, I love it and believe it or not I don't have one yet!!

RAK from Shirley(wannabcre8tive) on SCS and another Twisted Sister. Her wonderful gallery can also be found on the left side bar. Be sure to stop by and see some of the beautiful and especially the funny cards she has made, but you might want to wear depends! LOL:
Shirley is another one of the people that God has blessed me with!! Pat and Shirley are two of the first three people that I met on SCS and I am so glad that I commented on that card! They have both helped me through a very rough year and I love Shirley from way down deep in the bottom of my heart too!! She makes me laugh and gives me encouagement!
She sent me this adorable stamp (I love House Mouse!!), lots of images and this most beautiful card! When I was growing up, we had horses and I miss them so much! Not that I could ride one now anyway!! Just look at the beautiful paper, the awesome layout, the little bits of bling, the lovely sky and that totally fabulous ribbom!
Thanks so much Shirley!!

Thanks to you all for your kindness and for thinking of me! Each and everyone of these cards, put a huge smile on my face when I opened them!! Mwaaaaaah!!!!!!
Thanks for Stopping By!

More CRAK's

CRAK from Anne Ryan:
Anne is just the sweetest, always leaving encouraging words and sending me this cute card! The letters in the red circle mean good health and I can sure use some!! Anne, Thank you for all your guidance and prayers!! Love and Hugs to you!
CRAK from Pat and Bubba Smethers:
Isn't this just filled with the Spirit of Christmas and it is so gorgeous!! Bubba is smoking with that Exacto Knife that he used to cut this out!! I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you've been to me over the last year!! I know God sent you to me when I needed you most and you have made me laugh, cry, and love you so much!! Hugs!!
CRAK from my Mom:
This card is absolutely gorgeous. I couldn't pick up the gorgeous sparkle in the tree. It is so much more IRL and actually looks like it is lit up!!! I love the nested frame and the MS snowflake punch too!! Mom, I love you more than I can possibly say! I see or talk to you every day, but I still missyou when we are apart!! I was so blessed to be born to you and don't know what I would ever do without you!! Thanks for everything throughout my life and especially for being so encouraging and caring over the last year!!

CRAK for Cameron from Gramma:
My mom made cards for all 12 grandchildren and all six of us plus many, many more!
She even personalized them with their names, isn't that sweet! Cameron loves his Gramma so much and is totally excited whenever she makes him a card!! This fat little Santa is too cute and we love the reindeer flying overhead too!!
This CRAK is also for Cameron from his Great Aunt JoAnn:
She has quite the coleection of stamps and things, but has not done much with them muttering and complaining that she doesn't know how or can't do this or that. Well lookie here: Proof that she can and she should make some more cards!! Isn't this the sweetest! I love the DP and it is colored perfectly. Also, their is glitter on the white part of the cap that doesn't show up too well in the picture, but IRL it totally sparkles and Cameron loved it, so thanks very much!!
This CRAK is from her (Auntie JoAnn, my mom's sister) also:
Looks like she is on a roll now!! I love all the cute little snowmen. My only concern here Auntie is where this fourth snowman comes in!! It had better be my mother!! I love the colors and the sparkle!! Hope it's all over your house like it is mine!! Thanks so much, I love it and can't wait to see more!!! Repeat after me, Yes I can make fabulous cards!! Love ya!!
I feel so blessed to have received so many one of a kind originals created just for our family!
Better than any gift one could ever receive, LOVE!!

Thanks for Stopping By!

Look what my DH made me....

Hello everyone, sorry it's been so long!! I am actually thinking of giving up this blog beacause I don't do much anymore and it's kinda crazy for me to put the same thing in two places. I'm not sure yet, but seriously thinking about it, I just don't have it in me anymore. So if you see stop following and subscribing that is probably why, but I will definitely let you know and continue to catch up on your blogs when I can. Hope you will check in on me on SCS under Purty Bratty Barbie ( a combination of nicknames from those crazy twisted sistahs)!!
I saw these on a website and they were using them for calendars and I thought it would be a great idea to hold my larger cards and a great way to display them and no one actually needs to touch them!! So I asked my DH, who has absolutely no wood working equiptment but a saw if he could make me some and he did, he made three for under $12.99 including the paint!! Yeah!! Thanks Honey! I gave one to my mom and she loves hers too!!
