A Great Day!!!

Hello again.
 Short and sweet.
This card was created for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.


CASE Study #63

Me again...with my second post for today.
I won't keep you long as I have a few more challenges I am entering. This one is CASE Study's latest. The inspiration sketch by Niki Estes is awesome...her cards are always so pretty. Well, I actually made two cards and can't decide which one to enter. I'm going with my gut feeling...hope it's the right choice. Wish me luck! Which one do you like?

Be back soon...

CAS-ual Fridays

It's Monday....again already. I don't know about you but I think Monday's come along pretty darn fast.On top of that, it was 34 degrees on my way to work....BRRRR!!! Well today I'm sharing a card I made for CAS-ual Fridays challenge. I've always liked grey /yellow for sympathy appropriate I guess. For me, the grey represents sorrow but the yellow is soothing and eases the hurt. Call me crazy, but that's my interpretation. Anywho, my creation is below. Hope you like it.

October 2011 Papertrey Blog Hop

Hello again chicas,

There's a challenge going on with Nichole Heady over at Papertrey Ink and I think it would be in my best interest to join this challenge... considering I love orange and green together!!! 
The Challenge: Use the colors as your inspiration, or perhaps focus on the patterns.  You can also utilize pumpkins or maybe some felt die-cut leaves.  Whatever you choose, you are sure to have amazing results!

October blog Hop inspiration

Aren't those colors just yummy together??

For friend

Hi chicas,

Just poppin' in to share a card I made for the Sketchbook Saturday challenge. The sketch is pretty interesting but for some reason (although it appears pretty simple), I had a hard time coming up with something I liked. This is what I ended up with...not a lot to it, but I LOVE orange, it's my favorite color. It's actually for friend who is celebrating her birthday today. I hope she likes it.


Be back soon.

Moody Monday

Good day chicas,

Don't have but a minute to spare, so I'll make it quick. Today I'm entering my card in the The Pink Elephant sketch challenge and There She Goes Halloween or Autumn theme challenge. I decided to go with a fall theme. I just love the colors of fall. My card is pretty CAS but as you know, that's my style...hope you like it.

There She Goes Clear Stamps

Later...have a great day!

It's Sunday evening and I'm getting the "gotta go to work tomorrow BLUES". I'm most grateful to have a job, but wouldn't it be wonderful if we worked 2 days a week and off the other 5.?!?!? Then we'd be asking for something else. Isn't that the way it goes? Well, I have two challenges today that I'm joining and thought I'd share my creation with you. First up is My Mind's Eye with a wonderful sketch and CR84FN with a beautiful color combo. My picture is a little crappy, but I hope that won't exclude me in the challenges. Hope you like it!

Thanks for peekin'.

I'm seeing...PURPLE!!!

Happy Saturday chicas!

I'm in my craft room (and it's a total mess) creating for a few challenges I found. The first one is over at The Play Date Cafe. The challenge colors were very hard for me as I don't use purple often. But, after I started to create, the cards came together quickly. The other challenge is a sketch over at Deconstructing Jen . I may have to use this color combination again in the near future. I debated on which card to enter, considering I made two. I hope I made the right decision.


The last challenge is a sketch over at Lily Pad Cards. This is my first time visiting and entering their challenge. The sketch is CAS and you know how I love CAS. I'm still using the color scheme from my cards above in an attempt to use all my scrap pieces.

Are you seeing PURPLE back real soon!

It's the weekend BABYYYYY!!!

Hola chicas,
The weather has changed and I actually had to wear a jacket today. (crying silently) I don't want my warm weather to go away just yet. But, I guess on the other hand I have a few things to look forward to:
  • hot chocolate
  • relaxing by the fireplace
  • holidays with family and friends
  • maybe even a little snow (which I miss... from living in Michigan)
I'm sharing a card I created for the CR84FN challenge. The challenge colors are RED, KRAFT and  BROWN.

Thanks for peekin'.

Am I a...Ribbon Girl?

I know what you're thinking.... (please don't be mad)

Here's another challenge blog I found that seems really fun. The focus is "ribbon"...and you girls know how much I love ribbon. How could I not join, right?!?! I don't think I own any "lilac" and I don't use purple often... but here's my attempt. It's my first time over there and I'm looking forward to joining regularly. If you love challenges and ribbon, why not join me? Take a look for yourselves.

Later chicas.

Tryin' my MOJO...again


So I'm sure you remember me saying how intimidated I am to join in over at MOJO Monday blog because there is UBER talent over there...the DT and participants. Well, I'm going to walk the plank once again and try my luck with the current challenge. (I'm a glutton for punishment..but a sucker for a good challenge) lol

Biting my nails until this challenge ends...arghhhhhhh
Enjoy your day!


I'm back again. This time with a fun challenge I don't think I've joined before. I found the blog some time ago and it's on my "frequently viewed" list...just haven't joined in on the fun. Don't ask me why?!?!? (it's a mystery to me as well) I flipped it a bit but I think it still captures the sketch. Wish me luck!!! ;0)

Until later.

Some Birthday Love

Hello again...

Just poppin' in to join the challenge over at CASE Study. The inspiration card was created by the very talented Niki Estes. My interpretation of it is below. Hope you like it.

It's "Thirsty Thursday".....time for margaritas!!!

I have great news today. I'm doing my usual this morning - looking through my blog inspiration list and looking for new challenges. To  my surprise I find out that I'm the "cup of the week" winner over at The Play Date Cafe. The  color challenge and my entry are below. Woo hoo!!! Thanks ladies for selecting's such an honor.

Be back soon. Smooches.

As Special....As You Are

It's hump Day chicas!!!

I haven't spent a lot of time crafting this last week. (better half recovering from surgery) So I am just popping in really quickly to share a card with you I'm entering in the Card Patterns sketch challenge. I hope you like it.

Enjoy your day!

Your Special Day

Happy Friday chicas!!!

I had a very busy week with my fiance having surgery on yesterday. We've been on the go for the past couple weeks running around to different appoinments. The surgery went well and he is recovering now. So I really haven't been in my craft room lately. I thought tonight would be the night. I'm still a little tired from staying at the hospital and sleeping in the recliner but hey, I don't really feel like laying around right now. So what better thing to do than to CREATE...right? I'm entering a challenge over at The Play Date Cafe and I just love the color combination. Here is my creation...what do you think?!?!?

Until later...thanks for stopping by!

Happy Saturday chicas,

It's a beautiful day and I plan to get out and enjoy it. I'm in the craft room for a short time...checking blogs, searching for inspiration and looking guessed it, CHALLENGES!

Hump day...

Hola ladies,

Just thought I'd pop in after my good news and enter another challenge. This one is over at There She Goes (my first challenge with them). I just LOVE the color challenge they have this week, so I'm in!!! (lol) Here is my creation and the color challenge inspiration.

I think grey and yellow are so appropriate for sympathy cards. What do you think?

Until later...smooches.

Good News!!!

I'm a winner over at CASE Study with Chupa and the gang!!! Woo hoo. I am so honored. Thanks ladies.

Time to Celebrate

Hello again,
Ok, I know you're saying....what's wrong with this woman. I just can't seem to help myself today. I have another challenge I'm entering over at MOJO Monday. I know I've expressed that I'm  a little intimidated when it comes to their challenges, but hey... why not keep trying. I may get lucky one of these days, right? Well the sketch and my card are below. I'm hoping this fits the challenge...well, this is my interpretation anyway. Wish me luck. 


See ya back here real soon...
