Hello to everyone reading this. Hope is all well with you. I'm just a little sad. My daughter left Friday to go on a trip across the United States in a RV to go to California. On the way they are suppose to go see the Grand Canyon, go snorkeling, visit Disney Land for three days, and walk the board walk. There a couple of other things she will be doing but its a great opportunity for her. She went with her best friend and her mother. The sad part is they are going to be gone for 12 days and I miss her so much already. My daughter and I are close and it was hard on both of us when she left. I cried all day after I said Goodbye. I wouldn't stand in the way of this for her. She's already been to Virginia Beach with her friend and her mom is talking Hawaii next summer. Wish I had this when I was 16. Moving on to the challenge.

I am so lucky that I was allowed to use "Summertime Butterfly Bear" from Bugaboo Stamps. I just love the digital images they have in their store. There are many stamps if you are doing something with a summer theme. I made a card this week that you can use to send a message from where you are to your family back home. I always try to name my cards and layouts so here is the name for this one. "Beach Bound"

I hope you like it. I found so many things to make beach cards or layouts that it was hard to pick out what to use. I think this worked out great. So, here is the prize from Bugaboo Stamps.

$21.00 Gift Certificate

Great Prize!! Makes you want to enter our challenge!! Now on my card I used a couple of embellishments, fun paper and that great image. The circle behind the image is suppose to be a beach ball that also matches the one the bear is holding. This was a pretty simple card to make. The coloring of the image took me the longest. I just couldn't get my bear to look right. I think that it finally looks good. Here is what I used to make this adorable card

Challenge's That I Have Entered

Sunday, July 17, 2016


Good Day to everyone!! This past week has not exactly been a normal one. First, summer has come at a very fast and hot pace. My window air conditioner won't even cool down our living room like it usually does. Second, I am sending prayers to all those that are in Texas and Nice, France. It has been really sad in this world this week. Let's get to something exciting.

As you can see, this week's sponsor is our very own Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More. Robyn's was great in letting us pick our image for this challenge. She has had this image called "Angel Bear" and I wanted to work with it. I remembered that I had pictures of my daughter in a little Angel Outfit with Wings. There went the idea of another Scrapbook Layout since we had to make anything but a card. I call this layout "My Daughter, My Angel." 

This week's prize will be

3 Digital Stamps
The Winner's Choice 

On this layout I used a piece of paper that I have had for years with the Angels on it. I cut it in half and used it on the sides. I then used the pictures that my daughter was in and two of me with her. I couldn't cut myself out so they had to stay. Jelissa was 3 months old in these pictures. I took the image and made two of them with one flipped horizontally. Colored them pink and purple because that's what I loved her in at that age, Then wrote the sentiment in a Berry Rotunda font. The last thing is I added the Angel Embellishments. Here are the items

Cardstock --  Close To My Heart
Paper --  Masterpiece Studio's ( From Many Years Ago )
Glitter On Bear's Wing's --  Tree House Studio
Angel Embellishments  --  Make It Christmas ( Hobby Lobby )
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

To see more of the design teams projects just go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. There are instructions there to tell you how to enter your project that you make this week. I hope my layout gave you some inspiration. Please leave comments so I know what you think of it. Good of Bad.
Have a Wonderful Week and the rest of your Sunday

Hello! Hope all is well with you. I have had a very odd week. My son moved out again and it's peaceful with him and his sister not fighting. This is something that I will have to get use to and probably love when I do. This was his first Birthday not living at home. He turned 24 yesterday. Didn't even see him. It was weird when my first son wasn't home for his first birthday.

This week's sponsor is Angie's Digital Stamps. Her store has cute images and also sentiments that you can choose. She was so kind that she let me use her stamp "Whale" that worked great for this challenge. I have been wanting to use a picture of my grandson's wrinkled hand after he went swimming with me and my husband. The name of the card is "Having A Whale Of A Time" which is a sentiment that I used on my layout shown here:

This is the prize one lucky winner will receive

3 Digital Stamps
Of The
Winner's Choice
Angie's Digital Stamps Store

So, I would like to explain to you what I did to this Scrapbook Layout with my image of the "Whale." My Grandson (Hayden that was 9 months at the time) went to the pool for the first time with us. I took a picture with his wrinkled hand and wanted to use it for a layout one day. So I made around 20 copies of his hand. I cut them all out and made this cute circle with all of them. I knew there would be a hole in the middle and knew where to put my image of the Whale. The whale is so much brighter if you seen it in person. I had many pictures with Hayden in the water that made picking the right pictures hard. I made the pictures in circles to kind of look like bubbles. The background paper of water made the finishing touch. I have to say if you never made something like this, it takes a lot of time. Here is my ingredients.

Cardstock --  Close To My Heart & The Paper Studio
Paper --  The Paper Studio
Font Of Sentiment  --  PW Cartoon Maker
Glitter On Whale  --  Ranger (Crystal)
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

Since it's Summer, I bet that there are a lot of photos laying around just to make a great card with. You may have water in the back ground or you have a cute image you have been wanting to use. When your project is finished just add them to the challenge at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. I love looking at what other creative people make. I'm at the end so have an awesome week and I will see you next Sunday.

Good Morning!! Thank You for visiting my post for today. This week's challenge is one of my favorites. Who does not like Christmas in July? This officially starts the ideas of what to get people for Christmas. If I don't start a little early I will eventually get way behind and I really don't want to do that. So, since I love this challenge so much let's get to it.

As you can see, Star Stampz will be our sponsor for "Christmas In July" challenge. I used the great image called "Christmas Elf Ornament." She is absolutely beautiful. I did name the card "Ready To Decorate." She is sitting on an ornament so I thought it was perfect name. Here she is

The winner will receive

Winner's Choice Of
Three Digital Stamps 

They do have beautiful stamps so here is another great prize for our challenge winner's. When I seen this was one of the stamps I could use I was excited. She was totally an image that would stand out screaming Christmas. I also had this brand new Die-Cut that I received a week before. I knew this was a perfect match. I had found poinsettia flowers last year on the Internet and made sure I bought enough for this year's cards. I don't think I bought enough though. The background paper with the ornaments was great because they kind of looked like the ornament on the image. I think the frame made things complete. I do love how the red and white looks. So, here is where I tell you the items I used.

Cardstock --  The Paper Studio
Paper --  The Paper Studio
Frame --  Spellbinders 5x7 Card Die-Cut Called "Mystical Embrace"
Poinsettia's And Little Flowers --  Wild Orchid Crafts
Strings Of Beads --  Hobby Lobby
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

Well that's where everything came from. I just came up with the idea of what to make. I really hope you liked this card. This has been one of my favorites that I have done in awhile. Remember that all you have to do is go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog  and enter your Christmas in July Card. It's very simple and we love seeing what you make. Hope you are having a Wonderful Fourth of July weekend.

Hello from Hot and Humid Ohio. The weather is going up and down that you don't know if you will be miserable or happy for the day. Its not helping with the packing and unpacking of my mother-in-laws house. We are doing the stuff that will come to my home and then to other relatives and if there is anything left it will be sold or put in storage. I will be glad when this is all done.
Who's ready for our challenge?

Limited Runs Digital Stamps is our sponsor for the "Butterflies" Challenge #322. They were very gracious and let me use their image "Butterfly 3." I just love butterflies. So, I ended up calling this card "Butterfly Garden." Since I had put all different flowers and butterflies laying on top of them I thought this was a perfect name. 

Before I explain what I did with my card, I would like to tell you what Limited Runs Digital Stamps will be giving to the winner.

3 Digital Stamps

That will be a great prize. They have the cutest images. You should go over and look. You will want to join our challenge then. So, with the card that I made, I wanted to try to color the butterfly with the same colors that were on the butterfly paper. I think that I came really close. I know that butterflies usually fly around flowers, so I wanted to make a garden of them so the butterflies had a place to go. I used a blue circle to break up the pink decorative circle from the background paper. Here is where everything I used came from.

Cardstock --  The Paper Studio
Paper --  The Paper Studio
Decorative Frame --  Spellbinders Nestabilities (Beaded Circle) 
Basic Circle --  Stencils Of Circles
Butterfly Embellishments --  Dress It Up (Jesse James)
Flowers --  Prima Flowers and Wild Orchid Crafts
Colored Pencils
Colored Markers

I hope you enjoyed my inspiration for you to make your card with butterflies. Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog will be excited to see the cards you make. When you get there check out the other cards that the Design Team made. We also have great tutorials. I hope you have a fantastic week and I will be here next Sunday with the next challenge.

Good Morning!! Hope all is well with you as you are reading this. This past week we had our first heat wave. It was 95 degrees and I was scrubbing floors in this. I don't have air conditioning but a big ceiling fan in my kitchen. It felt hot but I did not know it reached that high until I watched the news that night. It's just now reaching summer and it's coming in hot. Now, let's get to the "Things With Wheels" challenge

Our sponsor this week is A Random Fan. The image that is used was called, "Travel Bug." I named the card "Let's Go Traveling" just because it was the sentiment that I used on my Easel card. A different style of card that I made this week. Here is my "Travel Bug."

I would like to tell you what the winner of this week's challenge will be receiving from A Random Fan.

3 Digital Images 

When I seen this image I had an idea right away that I wanted to do. Unfortunately, the pictures I was going to use for a scrapbook layout didn't have one of my grand children by their little battery operated cars. I had one with their car alone but the rest the two of them were always together in a picture. So, back to the drawing board. I was looking through some books and thought an Easel card would be great because I had little cars to go with this bug. The paper fit perfectly with the car and then the sentiment was just the icing on the cake. I think this turned out really cute but I couldn't get the card to darken up like you would be seeing it in person. Here is what I used to make the Easel Card.

Embellishment --  Jolee's Boutique

Sunday, June 12, 2016


Good Day to everyone no matter what time it is when you are reading this post. Hope you had a great weekend. I have been putting the finishing touches on the room that my husband and I remodeled to put my scrapbooking stuff and other crafts that I work on. It's not as big as I really need but my mother-in-law is moving in with us and she will be taking my big room I was going to use. You have to do things differently when it comes to family. I do have more things to do on the room but I need to get everything out of the other room because she is moving in at the end of the month. Now I'm going to move along to our new challenge of the week.


Our sponsor for this week's challenge is A Day For Daisies. I would like to show you the card with the image "Wall Art" that I used from A Day For Daisies Store. I call it "The Writing Is On The Wall."

A Day For Daisies is giving the winner of this weeks challenge "Children At Play" projects this prize.

$12.00 Gift Certificate

I really found this image adorable. I remember my children when they were little writing on the walls of their room. Couldn't just wash it off. Some of it had to be painted over. I was grateful when they grew out of this stage. Since this was obviously a toddler I wanted it to be a Birthday Card from the toddler to his mommy. I colored the wall to make it look like a wall that a toddler drew on. I made the mistakes on purpose. Since he was using crayons I found this great paper and had embellishments to go perfect with it. I tried to find a teddy bear that a toddler would carry but I couldn't so I just put a cat that sits beside him. I found this great font that kind of looked like a child's writing. I really think it turned out great. I hope you do also. Here are the items I used. 

Cardstock - From My Cardstock Stash
Paper - The Paper Studio
Crayon's & Cat - Dress It Up
Font Used On Sentiment - Andy Fish

Colored Pencils
