SMT 63 At Sassy Cheryl's Blog

Well it's that time of the week again, time to post what I have going on in my life. Glad I didn't do this last Thursday, as there wouldn't have been much to post. However, Friday morning, when I got back from my walk, DH asked if I would wanted to go to Tupelo. Well HELLO, of course I do. There's a JoAnns, a Hobby Lobby and a Sam's Club. All it cost me was to take DH to the Harbor Freight(not as simple as you might think as DH takes a lonnnnnnnngggggggg time to make a decision) for some tools. Right next door to Harbor Freight is a Thrift Store. I do believe it's the neatest, cleanest and most organized thrift shop I've ever been in. I was looking for a table for my my Big Shot Pro. Imagine my delight when I discovered this sewing machine table, and it was less than $20. I'm going to have to sand it and either paint it or restain and varnish it, and DH is going to add a bigger top, but it's way cheaper than the material would have cost to build a sturdy table.

Over the weekend, I decided I need to really start working on some OWH cards. This is the first set of cards that I've done and finished this afternoon. The frog was a free svg from Shery K Designs, and the papers are from a kit from Just So Scrappy Too called I Toadily Love You. The sentiment is from Create with TLC.

And this final shot is of my desk this afternoon, after I started cleaning up the mess I made from making 9 cards just alike. It's not there yet, but getting there so that I can start making another mess. Do you notice my afternoon latte?


  1. LOVE the table. . . .LOVE the cards and LOVE your mess! :) Was the trash can full when you got done?
    Can't wait to see the table when it's updated. Going to be a great addition to TM!
    Thanks for playing in the Sassy Cheryl's SMThursday this week.

  2. Hey Shirley, remember me. I haven't been around much lately, so tonight I took a few to catch up a bit. Love this gigantuous machine there. I know I will be seeing a lot of embossing coming out of Tazmania in the future. Glad you are home from the mountains. It was gorgeous but so is Tazmania. Wish I could ski as good as MM. Take care sweetie. Linda

  3. The table is going to be me later!!? YOur cards are wonderful...I just can't sit up straight that long so I have yet to do my paper art. Spending alot of time with my new grandson has been a life saver through life at this time. Sending you hugs from Toots and I

  4. love your cards and that frog is just wonderful and i cant wait to see that table when Charles has finished it .
