OK -I KNOW my title is LAME! Sorry!

Today is quick and simple samples-with MFT!

Remember when I said I’d eventually CRASH & BURN? Yeah, I’m crashin.

I have a million things to do that totally crept up on me-I got so involved with re-decorating the kids rooms (and it continued through the weekend-closets, clothes and blah, blah, blah), that I got behind on stuff I need/want to do. Photos to come soon!

I hate not getting to stamp for even 2 days let alone a week!! YIKES!

Noah has to go to the dentist AGAIN today-suck at least $200 out of my pocket, Alexa has Chemo Wednesday-that is an all day thing, School meeting Thursday, as well as 2 class parties,  Friday one class party.

I need to finish my children’s Easter stuff, and Easter things for their 40 classmates in total. THEN-Sew Amber’s Dance costume, Make 50 Wedding invites, 100 Wedding Favors, a few Thank You’s made, a sympathy card done, a PSF gift, decorations for Noah’s room to create…………………mail stuff……..are YOU tired of reading it yet?!

BLAH! So my title creativity is low, and my to do list is long.

WHY do I wait till the LAST minute? I always “plan” ahead, but often finish executing late.

Anyway-it will get done. The important thing is to stay focused and manage my time. I ALWAYS have to “play” first 😀 Otherwise my “have to’s” aren’t fun.

Part of my “play” is coming here and posting. I get to sit and just blabber away.

Well Im now going to share some cards made with the most recentMFT release-Punch a Bunch, and Ride’em Cowgirl

Hope you like-I made them like a month ago! Its so hard to wait! I often forget I have made stuff and it gets LOST-never shared.

Bandanna wrap

mft-bandana-bye.jpg Well when I made this card, I was thinking of a bandanna scarf kind of thing. I wanted to do something-interesting, and this was what I came up with. The Berry Bliss paper by SU! Is really perfect to pair with this set. As is the star punch!

If you can’t tell I also paper pieced her dress.

Next up-a well, FUNKY card.

mytime-mft-these-boots.jpg I wanted to focus on the BOOTS!!! So I did. It was definitely an interesting layout! I do like the hemp stitched up the side, and the way the boot is showcased. I really like this set alot. It was fun to play with.

Next up! Punch a Bunch

I finally made more use of my Sizzix die’s! I used the flower pots for these 2 creations.

mytime-mft-topiary.jpg I don’t know WHY but I saw “topiary” for this! So I went with it. I like the color blocked bkgd. This was a simple card, but I enjoyed playing around with the possibilities of using this set a little differently!

Now we have a more obvious use. Kim’s intent for this set was QUICK cards. This one was VERY simple!

The sentiment over the flower’s is one of my favorite!


Rust is NOT a color “I” normally use, but it was a nice change of pace. Plus paired with the saffron and black it worked. The scallop border-punched, is actually the scallop oval STAMP-Its really NICE!!!!

I did sponge the edges of the pot, but you can’t really see the depth by the photo-sorry!!

That gorgeous bkgd is created by Lisa Strahl-its called Dotted Diamonds. I so LOVE it.

Well that’s it for today-Im off and running.

Till tomorrow-I have our monthly Dirty Girl challenge, and it doubled as a BOY card for my nephew who has been ill.

Till then, Bye!
