Red Hot Challenge #136

Greetings Friends,
It is Red Hot Challenge Day.  Yahoo!

The Red Hot Challenge is meant to inspire.  Use any products you have, rotate the sketch, substitute shapes ~ it's all good.  The most important part is to have fun.

Here are some samples using the sketch.

This is my sample.

I would love to see what you were inspired to make so leave a link so I can come check out your creation.  If using online galleries please use keyword RHC136.

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel

Silly Saturday

First time making eggs.
Joshua told me he wanted to make fried eggs for breakfast.  He said he knew how because he's watched Daddy make them all the time.  So I let him loose to try and make breakfast on his own.  He did great, the eggs were delicious. 

Josh did say that he knows now he should wear a shirt when cooking - the hot butter jumping out of the skillet and on to his skin didn't feel to good.  te-he.

Get Well Wishes

Greetings Friends,
A friend of mine just had shoulder replacement surgery this week.  All went well and she is back home recovering so I thought I would send her a get well card.  I have plans to bake up a batch of  pumpkin muffins today, so I thought I would bring some of those along when I deliver her card.
Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel.

Greetings Friends,
Emily and I snuck out of the house and ran errands together yesterday.  One of our stops was the craft store.  We didn't find the item that we went in for but we did find this mermaid stamp. 

My Emily's favorite thing in the whole world is mermaids.  She would turn herself into one of she could.... and has, in her imagination, whenever she is in the pool or bathtub.  The mermaid stamp had to come home with us. 

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel

Sock Monkey

Greetings Friends,
I was so excited to play along with the Paper Players this week.  Sock Monkey was the first kids stamp that popped into my head and I LOVE Sock Monkey.  It was great to dust him off and play with him again.  :)

Greetings Friends,
Each summer I like to send out a thinking of you card to the girls in my church group.  Wednesday night classes will be starting up in about a month so it is time to get my cards mailed out to everyone.

We have 15 girls that regularly attend, but enough of them are siblings that I only needed to make 7 cards.  It was fun using some of my 2013-2015 In Colors for this project.

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel

He's Back.

Heeeeee's Baaaaaack
Greetings Friends,
My lil' friend Matthew is back from summer vacation.  It is time for his Mom to get her classroom ready for the year so he has started coming back to our house to play this week.

Matthew even brought along some treats for Ms. Rachel.  Yum!
Before Matthew arrived for the day I was up bright and early to play along with the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.  I dug around in my bins of DSP scraps to put together this bright and pretty card.

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel

Greetings Friends,
This past week my kid-o's and I decided to go blueberry picking.  Kim was with us too but I guess I didn't get a photo of her. (drat!)  The berries are perfectly sweet.  Though I don't normally munch on the fruit while picking I couldn't resist this time.  LOL.  We picked just over 12 lbs. of berries, which is enough for us to make blueberry pancakes for the entire year.  Yum! 
This week a surprise thinking of you card showed up in the mail from my friend Glenda.  What a treat to have such a nice note be delivered.  Thanks Glenda.

Have a great day everyone ~ Rachel

Silly Saturday

 Someone (Josh) tried to do a little redecorating
in our dining room.
While this poster makes me very happy,
I think I'll try and find a better spot for it.  LOL
