Scraps of Darkness - July and a card

I'm ALIVE....

LOL...nothing wrong here, just busy.  I'm talking about no sleep busy. First, kiddos are out for summer break so to them that consist of constant entertainment, family gathers, vacations, work, school = homework (for me) and my DH took a job over two hours away from the town we live in and stays there during the week. So we only see him during the weekends.  But I am getting the schedule down and finding 5 minutes here and there to craft.

I hope every is enjoying there summer and surviving hot hot hot summer days.

As some of you know I'm a club kit member of Scraps of Darkness and I finally got to sit down with the July Kit - Marrakesh Express Kit.  Each month when the kit arrives, so does a sketch.  This months sketch is by Charlotte Jenkins a.k.a. Suepup.

Here is my take on the sketch - let me know what you think!

Supplies - Scraps of Darkness July kit,
Zva Creative Embellishment, American Craft Thickers,
Imaginisce iRock & gems

Also, a few weeks ago, I won some awesome stash from Darkroom Door. Below is a card I made for my Mother-in-Law's birthday.

One more thing, thank you all for sticking with me through this brief hiatus and a BIG THANK YOU to those of you who checked in on me.  I really appreciate it!  ((HUGS))

Late Father's Day

Happy Friday everyone!

I have to ask...Where did half the year go?!?!  It seems like it was only January yesterday and now the first day of July!   This year is flying by so fast that I'm getting whiplash! 

I noticed today that I never shared with you Father's Day cards...tsk tsk, I 'm slacking I know.  But it seems lately I am behind on everything! Chalk it up to my inability to say 'NO' to about anyone who needs help with something ok anything.  I think they conspire and ask for favors at the same time to see if I would ever tell them 'NO'. 

So here are the cards I made for my father (top) and my husband (middle). The sentiment went in both cards.  It is a freebie at Create With TLC, she has some of the best sentiments and I love her blog. Please stop by her blog and leave a little love.

Supplies: Scraps of Darkness April Kit (Bo Bunny Timepiece);
Distress Ink - Rusty Hinge; Cosmo Cricket-Tiny Alphabet stickers;
Cricut Cartridge Heritage; Cricut Cartridge Accent Essentials;
Sentiment from Create With TLC

Until next time happy scrappin'! ~ Carol
