Flying By With A Hi

Ellie has some new images at Digital Stamp Oasis and they are so cute! I love this one! I decided to use Sketch Saturday's sketch and went with the color combo from A Spoon Full of Sugar. I used BasicGrey paper and a border punch from EK Success. It actually flowed together pretty easy! YAY!

Just Magnolia/Stamp with Fun

I combined two challenges today so I can play more! :) (It's the only way I'll get them in.)

Just Magnolia had a great color combo using pink & green. So, I used those colors to combine with Stamp with Fun's was actually made by a DT member from both blogs! I flipped Bev's sketch and added some ebellishments. The butterfly brads are from Archiver's Hot Spot. I don't remember the company's name, but I love them!!!

CCT and Penny Black Sketch

Wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get in PB's challenge or not! I had an image all colored, matted, and cut out, but when I went to make the card it was way too big and you couldn't see all the layers underneath. Soooo, I quickly colored another one! I had spent too much time sewing (which was going along with the challenge at CCT). Finally, I accomplished it...

  • Not any help here today because it all came out of stash. The only thing I know is that the flowers are Primas! LOL!

Singing in the Rain

Another super cute digi download from Digital Stamp Oasis. I am lovin' the umbrella!! :)

I decided to go kinda vintage/shabby chic on this one, which goes along with Ellie's 2nd challenge. ABC's Challenge was to have jagged edges...pretty sure mine are JAGGED! ;) Then on CCT, it was all about the Flowal Fantasy ...ohhhh, I'm soooo there! Love my flowers!
The papers are from K & Company...I'd have to say that K&Co is one of my favorites, in case you couldn't already tell. I inked the edges of my flowers and paper for a distressed look. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

You've Got Mail

Gotta love the "pink & brown" challenges! Stamp with Fun is a new challenge blog and this is what they've got for us this week! Love it! Also, on A Spoon Full of Sugar, they have us using a die. So, put the two together and this is what I came up with. (When I popped over to ASFofS, I found out I was the winner of last week's challenge...yippee!!)The paper's are from basicgrey. My ribbon is the ole' faithful I've been using quite frequently and I'm about out! Definitely got my $1 worth! The charm is from So Charming and the cute button from Reflections.I also decorated the inside.

3 Challenges Conquered!

This first card was made following the sketch from Sketch Saturday. They have some great ones there!!! Always helps get my mojo going! The image is an older Penny Black one and it has been heat embossed. I used papers from Wild Asparagus and added lots of stitching! Since the image is so big, I decided to keep my embellishments simple.This 2nd card is for two challenges: the sketch is from Mojo Monday and High Hopes was to pierce it. You'll have to look closely at the middle squares in the corners for my piercing. The image is a High Hopes one and soooo cute! The paper is from BasicGrey. I also got a new punch with my 50% off coupon at Michaels. It's from EK Success and it's a new kind that I've never seen before. They take up less storage because the handle locks down when you're done.And this is my beautiful daughter on Easter Sunday! Isn't she so cute?!?!??! :) A little predjudice, I know!

Birthday Squirrel

This card was made with A Spoonful of Sugar and ABC Challenges in mind. I had to put a birthday number on the card and show off the inside. I just carried my sketch through to the inside...nothing particularly exciting! :)
The cute image is another one from Digital Stamp Oasis. By the way, Ellie is looking to start a challenge blog. If your interested, go here.

Mojo Monday on a Tuesday :)

Mojo Monday is a great way to start off the week! They always have a great sketch and it usually is one that takes me out of my comfort zone! :) That's good...
I went with a vintage feel for this card. The flower embellishments are a quarter deal from Michaels...yes! $0.25 for a whole pack of goodies! Thought they matched this paper perfectly!
Let me know what ya think! :)

Easter Blessings

A new challenge blog is starting up today and they have a great sketch to begin with! This one made me think a little bit, but isn't that what it's all about?
I'm pretty sure this will be my last Easter card of the season. I can't believe it's almost on us! WOW! I love this time of year! I am so thankful for what Jesus did for me that day!
