Hello everyone! It seems like forever since I've posted anything!! I was starting to wonder if I was ever going to have time to make anything again! I should have really been cleaning today BUT...I would much rather made a card then clean hee hee! Here is my card for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. I used a stamp from the Pretty Primative stamp set and colored with my copics. I added stickles to the flowers but you can't tell in the picture. I used my nesties to cut the scallop and regular oval out and used a Studio G stamp for my sentiment. The butterfly was cut from the Create A Critter cartridge which I got for Mother's Day. Be sure to head over to Lindsay's blog to see what freebie she has for you this week. She's also came out with a new set called Seaside Sketches that is absolutely gorgeous!!! Also, be sure to visit the other DT members blogs to see what they have created for you this week! Thanks for looking and hope everyone enjoys the rest of the week!

Hello everyone! It's time for the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Day! I'm sorry I didn't get to play along last week but well life just got in the way! I'm also sorry I'm going to make this post a little short I'm pooped!! This week I decided to use several of Lindsay's images to make a graduation card. Our neighbors son is graduating so I had him in mind as I was making this. I used several of Lindsay's stamps All Around Phrases, School Rule Stamps, and School Papers. Our towns school colors are maroon,gray, white, and black. I thought the School Papers would work great! I printed it once at 4 x 6 and again at 5 x 7. I layered the diploma inside the All Around Phrase stamp that says congratulations. I used my nesties to cut the scallop and plain circle that the sentiment is on. This was a very simple and quick card and not all that frilly but I really didn't need it to be since it's for a guy! It also didn't help that my mojo has just picked up and walked away! Be sure to head over to Lindsay's blog to pick up a freebie and also be sure sure to check out all my DT buddies blogs to see what they have created for you this week!! Thanks for looking and stoping by! I'm hoping tonight I sleep much better than last night!!

Hey ya'll!! Everyone having a great weekend? I am! Me and hubby went fishing late yesterday afternoon. It was so nice and relaxing! I didn't catch a thing but still enjoyed it! Today is been a lazy day. We've just been hanging out at home. I was browsing around and came across My Pink Stamper's color challenge and decided to play along. The challenge is to make a male card using brown,green, and yellow. I used Going Places, Just Because, Beyond Birthdays, and Mini Monograms to make this card. I also used Studio G stamps for the heart, I heart you, and Happy Father's Day. The little car and Your A Classic are some stamps I received in a stamp kit that I'm in. The ribbon is some I had in my stash. I also added some glossy accents to the windows of the car and I missed a spot or two and had to add some more (which I didn't let dry before I took this photo hee hee). Thanks for looking!!
I'm entering this card also in the following challenges:

Happy Friday!!! Hope everyone has had a wonderful week! It's time for a new challenge over on the Bildmalarna Blog! This challenge is a color challenge. The colors are blue,yellow, and red. I used a new image from the stamp club, isn't she cute! I colored her using my copic markers and then I added some stickles to the bubbles and to her bonnet. I used this weeks MoJo Monday sketch and my papers are from Basic Grey June Bug collection. I've been hoarding this paper and finally broke down and decided it was time I used it!! Believe me it was hard I love this paper (as you can tell I was also greedy and didn't use much hee hee) For the three flowers I just hand cut those from another little tinsy weensy piece!! I added some bling for the centers. The ribbon is some I've had in my stash that I picked up from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is a Studio G stamp. I doodled some dots (kinda got dot crazy!) around the edge. I know I've said this a thousand times but I'm just in love with these stamps!!! They are so fun to color! If you are interested in purchasing any be sure to click here for more info. We would love for you to come join in on the challenge and one lucky person will receive a Bildmalarna stamp free!!!

Hey everyone!!! Hope all the mommies out there are having a GREAT Mother's Day weekend! I wanted to share about Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Mother's Day sale over at My Grafico. Everything is 25% off thru midnight tomorrow night. Lindsay's added some new files and svgs that you won't want to miss!!

Hey ya'll!! Hope everyone has had a great week. The last couple of days here have been beautiful! I just love spring and summer and soooo glad the cold weather is gone! Our challenge this time over on the Bildmalarna Blog is to make a Mother's Day card using any Bildmalarna stamp. I used Mimosa on a fence for my image. I stamped her once and hand cut around her and then around the flower pot. I then stamped again for my extra flowers (one in wagon and the other one on the ground) I used my copics to color. I hope everyone is not getting to tired of seeing this fence! I just love it and keep getting ideas for it! It has got to be my favorite fence by far off of any of the cricut cartridges! It is off of the Heritage cartridge (forgot to add that) The wagon is cut from the Just Because cartridge and I added some brads on the wheels. The grass (which by the way is green but looks brown in this photo) was cut from Everyday Paper Dolls. The sentiment is a Studio G stamp. I couldn't believe that was the only stamp that I have that says Happy Mother's Day! I'm not sure if you can tell but I "tried" making clouds using my finger and a ink pad! Please be sure to visit us on the Bildmalarna Blog for inspiration (posted about every 2 or three days) and play along with us. Each challenge, we offer a Bildmalarna stamp so what are you waiting for come on and join in you may be our next winner!! (I'm sure my English teacher would roll over that last sentence probably had 15 complete sentences all rolled up in one hee hee) I always stunk at English but if you've been following me for a while you probably have already figured that out!!! Thanks for looking and if you are new to my blog and like what you see (noooo pressure) I would love for you to become a follower. I'm trying to reach 300 (25 to go!) Have a great day! Hugs!!

Hello!! This week is really going pretty fast for me how bout ya'll? So far this week has started off pretty good around here! I've had a blast playing in my scrap room this week! I also got two more cartridges in the mail today Forever Young and Tie The Knot!! HSN was having a sale on these and well all I can say is that they were calling my name (literally I could here them saying buy me! buy me!!) I really, really want Create A Critter, Perserves, and Give A Hoot maybe I'll get at least one for Mother's Day (if he finds out I just got these I won't get squat!!) Anyway, on to my card!!! Today is Lindsays Stamp Stuff day (actually it's tomorrow I always post the night before it's just easier on me that way) I used a image from the Love Grows Here set. I colored the image with my copics and added glossy accents. Once dry I cut it out. I love the look that glossy accents gives and also the way it feels!! The sentiment is a freebie that I found online (I'm not sure who to give credit to I found this awhile back and now I can't remember who's site it came from) Don't forget to head over to Lindsay's blog tomorrow she will be having a free svg file. Also, Lindsay's decided to join her Junior DT and Senior DT and we will all be posting for the first time tomorrow as one big group! Here is the link to everyone's blog so be sure to leave them lots of love!!!

Yipee!! Yipee!! I'm finished with all the challenges!!!! I just entered it with 18 minutes to spare! I'm completely wore out and it's wayyyy past my bed time! This has been so much fun!! I can't believe I actually finished all 12 challenges in this short of time!! Well, gotta head to bed my eyes are beginning to cross hee hee! Thanks for looking!! Nite, nite!

Here is my card for Challenge 11. I'm really not pleased with this one at ALL!!! This challenge for some reason has had me stumped! I've wasted most of my time trying to figure out something to do and I know I've cut a ton of things that are in the garbage now!! Oh well, gotta hurry and go enter it!! Thanks for looking!
Here is Challenge 10!! I haven't added a sentiment yet because I couldn't decide what to put!! I used Heritage for the fence and grass with flowers. I used Just Because for the wagon and for the life of me I can't remember what cartridge I used to cut the tree (sorry)! Ok, now I've got to get busy again this is all for now! 2 more to go!!! Thanks for looking!!!
Ok, here is challenge 9! Not to thrilled with this at all!! I used Stamping Cricut cartridge. I'm not sure if this is a cell phone, ipod, or what! I went with the cell phone! It's funny how some things really look good while they are floating around in your head but when you actually get them done you think to yourself what the crap! This was one of those moments hee hee! Thanks for looking!!
Here is my card for challenge 8. I've got to make this post quick to!!! I'm trying my BEST to finish all the challenges up! Does anybody know what time we have to get these in by? I know it's tonight but just not sure what time. Anyway, I used Pagada for this card. It's the first time I've used it and not quite sure I like it or not... Thanks for looking and I'll be back to post some more challenges in a bit! Wish me luck that I finish!!
Hello everyone! This is going to be another quick post! My dad has a doctors appointment today (which mother thought was tomorrow but turns out to be today!!) and I've got to get ready! I managed to squeeze in a little time this morning and I was able to finish challenge 7 (make something for Father's Day. I used Life Is a Beach for the Lighthouse and the sea gulls. The paper is from My Minds Eye. I used my stampin up punches and the sentiment is a Studio G. Thanks for looking and hope everyone's Monday is going great! The rain has finally moved out and the sun is shining yipee!!! Hugs!!

For challenge 6 we are to make something for a child. This was a super, super quick card but for some reason I still think it turned out cute hee hee!! I used the Just Because cartridge for the rocket and the sentiment. I used all scraps for my paper again! Well, this is my last challenge I was able to complete tonight. I'm really hoping I will be able to do the other challenges tomorrow (at least now I'm half way!!) Thanks for looking and I'm heading to bed!! Hugs!!
For challenge 6 we were to make something for teacher appreciation. I was a little stumped on this one but I got my Just Because cartridge yesterday in the mail and since I haven't really got to look at it good I went for it and found this! All the paper is from my scraps! It's kinda plain but I don't know what else to add! Also, since I've been playing catch up I figure the simplier I can go is great with me!! Hope you like and I will be back with my final post for tonight! Thanks for looking!!
For challenge 4 we were to use our least favorite cartridges (you know the ones we thought we had to have hee hee) I actually could have picked from several! Not saying I don't like them but there is some I have yet to use!! For this challenge I used Paisley and Heritage. This will be my first time using Paisley! I'm not sure why, but when I bought it I just thought I could not live without it! Now it's just not my go to cart! The paper is by K & Company. Thanks again for looking and I still have two more challenges to post tonight so see you in a sec!!
Here is my take on Challenge 3 thinking outside of the box. I found these old pictures at a yard sale last summer and ran across them today when I was digging around! I'm not sure how old they are my luck they are worth trillions and trillions of dollars and I screwed up by adding it to my card hee hee!! I'm never taken a old photo and used on my projects so this is my first attempt! The flower is cut from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge flower #2. The tag is hand cut from another Hot Off the Press template and I used my nestie for the scallop square. The paper is more from my scraps and the sentiment is a Studio G! Thanks for looking and I'll be back yet again with challenge 4!!!
I'm back!!! For challenge 2 we were to use scraps. As I was going thru my scraps I found this lunch bag that I had messed up cutting the top. I just grabbed my scissors and straighten it some and decided to use it! I added a flower (also from a earlier project, I throw away NOTHING hee hee) The cupcake is hand cut from a Hot Off The Press template using scraps. I meant to take the tag out so it would show in the picture but I forgot! I'm also sorry but I can't remember who the paper is by. Again, sorry these posts are short hubby is rushing me!!!! Thanks for looking and I'll be back with challenge 3 in a sec!
Hello everyone! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods! The weather here in NW Alabama has been HORRIBLE all weekend long! We have had numerous tornado warnings, severe thunderstorms, and flood warnings since late Friday night. I really wanted to participate in the My Pink Stampers challenges yesterday but the weather was just to bad! So, I thought I would start this evening and see how many I can get done before the dead line. Here is my first card for the first challenge Mother's Day. I used The Mother's Day cartridge for all the cuts and the paper is by K & Company. I also added gem stones for the centers of the flowers. Sorry this posts are going to be kinda short (trying to get them in before I head to bed!) Thanks for looking and I'll be back in a minute with Challenge 2!
