The Color Purple


I'm joining in the fun over at The Play Date Cafe. I don't usually use the color purple but for some reason my eye has been drawn to it lately. So this challenge was perfect. I have two cards to submit.

PTI January Blog Hop

Hola chicas! It's Testy Tuesday... and I'm testing my skill and entering the Papertrey Ink January Bog Hop challenge for the 1st time. (woo hoo) The challenge is to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust! So, below is a set I purchased a few months ago and haven't used again. Why you ask...I' don't know because I really LOVE them!!!! {P.S. I used them in conjumction with another stamp - Thanks} Below are my creations. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for peekin'.

Altered Art?

It's the weekend chicas!!!
Well, I don't know what I am going to do today, but thought I'd take a moment to share something new for me. I promised in an earlier post that I would let you see my attempt at altering an item. I bought an accordion tag kit a few years ago to give as a gift and it's been in the closet since then. I knew one day I would eventually give it away...and that day has come. I plan to give it as a Valentine's gift to 3 lovely ladies I work with. It was originally a set of three tags that included hinges to make one book. I chose to split it up and give separately. I will have to find a stand for them...which I plan to look for at Hobby Lobby. So, without further it is . {keep in mind this is my first real attempt}

front /back

I know they're simple, but I'll get better. Please tell me what you think.

Die Cut Tag Panels: Gallery J Kit
Paper: Making Memories - Ella Glittered Dot
Die Cuts: Spellbinders - Fancy Tagsolda Dot Frame
Felt Butterflies: Michael's
Metal Sentiments: included in kit
Flowers: my stash
Thanks for stopping by.


Happy Valentine's Day...With Love

Hola chicas!!!

It's me again and I've been in the craft room pretty much all day. {other than when I went to lunch with "my boo" and a little shopping @ Tuesday Morning and Joann} Guess what...I did a couple altered items; something I don't do. But, as I've said in previous posts...I am doing new things for 2011. I'll show those in another post later. On to why I'm guessed it, a challenge. Two actually. One @ Just Add Ink: a theme challenge: Monochromatic! and the other @ Stamp Away With Me.  Both cards are for JAI and the second for Color Cue.


BTW...I know my last several posts have been very similar. The reason you ask? I've promised myself for 2011 that I would try to use the entire sheet of card stock once I cut. It's really hard and it probably won't last...but can you blame me for trying?!?!

Thanks for peekin'.

Baby Love

Happy Friday chicas!!!
I'm up an at'em again. I finally went to bed around 4 a.m. and up already... Well, I'm taking a stab at a challenge over @ Verve. I'm oh so reluctant to ever enter their challenges because there are sooooo many amazing entries. I did once, and went running afterwards with my tail between my legs. {whimpering} That's one challenge I would probably NEVER get picked!! But, why let that stop me...I'm doing different things for 2011 and this shouldn't be the exception. So here goes.

Thanks for peekin'.

Me and You

Here's another one!!!!! I'm in the zone and having fun. It's about 1:40 a.m. and I'm not sleepy at all. I know I should be in bed as I have some running around to do in the morning. But, as you know, when you're in the go with it!!! {Right?!?!?} So this challenge is over @ The Color Throwdown. Inspiration and card are below.

Thanks again.


Love Me....Not

Hiya chicas,
It's the weekend baby!!!! {at least for me} I did work today but only for a short while. So I've been in my craft room for a while. We had to finish taking our Christmas things up in the attic. I was actually supposed to purge some things {the reason why it's taken so long}. But, as you know... that didn't happen. Maybe next year....NOT!!!!! Anywho, I've found another challenge and thought I'd join. This one is over at Pal's Paper Arts. Here is the inspiration and my cards. I really don't expect to win with these, but thought I'd play anyway....they are quite simple.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Well chicas,

Once again, I am at home "snowed in". As I said yesterday, GA is out for the count. So as I don't have anything else to do...{well, really I do} I decided to join in on another challenge. This one is over at Off The Wall Craftiness I like the color combo so I made a card. Here is the color inspiration and my entry.

Thanks for taking a peek.

Happy New Year...2011!!!

Hello chicas!!!!

I pray that this will be a prosperous year for us all. I know it's been a while and I promise to get back into the swing of things. I have being creating...just not posting. Well, I have several things planned for the new year in hopes to step out of my comfort zone. First thing I'd like to share is:
  • I'm really good about making to do lists, but I'm VERY bad about sticking to those lists. I am the ultimate procrastinator. {I always say, oh I'll do it tomorrow} Well, that will come to an end for 2011. The proof is in the pudding you say?!?!? Well, guess what!!!
  • I have opened my Etsy shop...YAY!!!!! I have been trying to do that for so long. So, today I finally did it. It's a work in progress, so if you head over there don't expect too much. It feels so good to finally check that off of my list. {smiling}
  • Another thing I'm working on is finishing my craft room. I get so overwhelmed with all the supplies I have that it sometimes stunts my creativity. Well, I went to Ikea yesterday to buy more shelving and some magazine holders. To my surprise once I picked everything out.....they didnt have any more of the shelving I wanted. I was so mad that I left everything. I know, I didn't matter to anyone at Ikea. I only hurt myself. I will go back one day this week to get it.
  • I'm also going to start working with scrapbook pages again. I haven't done them in probably two or more years. I think I burned myself out just working on cards, so that will be a switch. That also means that I will have to take more pictures and buy a NEW camera!!! Yet another item on my to do/buy list.
  • One last thing I will do is to market myself/business. I'm very shy about that. I don't like to push my craft on anyone but I guess that will end. I'm going to do more craft shows/fairs, inquire about getting into boutiques and just do the "darn" thing.

Well, enough sharing for's about getting it done. Please visit my Etsy shop @ Please let me know what you think. Thanks for listening.
