My Grafico Monday Challenge #82

  Hello Again. Welcome to another Monday Challenge. I hope that you read the blog last Monday and read the new rules to My Grafico's Challenges. So if you haven't read them yet here is the url to the My Grafico Blog to read all the rules and see the projects that people are submitting. The Challenge's will be anything goes and it will last all month. There will be more prizes this way which is great for you. Tomorrow will be the beginning of February's Monthly Challenge. Today is the last day to submit your projects for January. I cannot wait to find out who one all the prizes this month and who was chosen as the favorite. Good luck to you all. There was so many great projects. I just hope that my post isn't to late to let you know about the challenges. I have a problem with migraine's and boy I have had a bad one. It's starting to lighten up so I'm trying to get this finished.

This week I worked with the designer Dilek Design Studio. I used the Cute Panda Digital Stamps and the designer Jazzy Pattern's called Dreams of Japan Digital Papers. I love panda bears  so I was excited to get started on this one. I can honestly say I started out with one idea and ended up with this card that I made. It's amazing how things change in the middle of working on things. This was an anything goes project so the whole card was my idea. You can actually pick one of these sets as a prize if you win our challenge. Here is the pictures of these set's that I used.

Here is the card that I ended up with. This panda is so adorable.

Now all you have to do is go to and enter your project. I wish you all the luck and have fun with it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY HERO, MY DAD. He has been a great inspiration in my life.

This week I worked with the designer Revi Devi. I used the February Critters Digital Stamps and the February Critters Digital Papers. This was a fun project for me using the little critter and making the card for Valentine's Day. This was an anything goes project so the whole card was my idea.

My Grafico Monday Challenge #80

Welcome everyone for joining my for My Grafico's Challenge Monday. Yes, we have changed the day to Monday's. I think this is a great change. You can have the whole weekend before you have to turn in your project. I think it's great. Sometimes I get busy through the week and that's how I get behind. I think this way I won't be so behind on my projects.

This is the first challenge for the year. I am so excited about it. I know have challenges to look forward to. I'm also working on Christmas pictures to. My Grandson actually ripped open his gifts and he was having so much fun. I really had a great Christmas this year. Let's get to our challenge that you are probably getting excited for.

The challenge this week is a Recipe Challenge. You are to stitch your project (faux/real) and add some bling to it. Who doesn't like having bling on your project. This week we worked with Corset Digital Stamps designed by Blackleaf Studios. This week you could make a card, scrapbook layout or any altered item to use for the challenge. Just make sure you use one of the My Grafico FREEBIES on your project. Here's where you need to go to grab your freebie:

Here is a picture of the Corset Digital Stamps that we used this week. You will definately will want to try and win this set. I loved it.

Here is the card that I made. I add a gold flourish but it's not showing up in the picture that great. So if you are wondering what your looking at it may be the gold. I did call my project Pretty In Pink.

Well all you need to do is go to and read the rules and create your project. I wish you all the luck at winning these Digital Stamps by Blackleaf Studios.

I'm On The Design Team At Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends

Hi Everyone!! I wanted to share a new site that I'm on the Design Team. The blog is called Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends Design Team Blog. The url for this site is There are a great bunch of ladies that participate on this design team. We use the Digital Stamps and Digital Papers from the My Grafico Store. Each project that we use I will give you the url that goes directly to the set that I use so you can go right there and buy the set if you would like. I just love the designers there. They are great Digital Projects.

The first project that I made was from the designer Cheri Wenger. I used her Digital Stamp set called Birthday Pals. You can find them here:  This will take you right there. He is a picture of the Digital Stamp Set:

This set may say Birthday Pals but they are so versatile that you could use them for more then just Birthday Cards. I used them for Valentine's Day. Here is the card that I made with the Frog from this set:

I think this turned out cute. So if you would like to see more great projects from this set just go to Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends Blog. If you really like it you can buy the set at the url that I gave you above. Come back soon as there will be more projects posted from this design team. Also don't forget that I'm still on the Design Team at My Grafico also. Look for my post Saturday where I will be showing our first project for announcing the new team.

I would like to say Hello to everyone. I hope you all had a Wonderful Holiday Season and a Great Start to this New Year. Did anyone make those New Year's resolutions? I have to say that I did not make one. I do every year and every year I never succeed at the resolution. So I set little goals and try to accomplish those and make life much easier on myself.

I wanted to let you know that I will be on the My Grafico Design Team for another term. I'm so excited to get started. There will be challenges still so you want to check back sometime next week to see the first one.

I will also be letting you know about specials that Close To My Heart will be having. I'm still a consultant with them and they are going to be changing things around and I'm sure you will want to know what they are. I can tell you now that the Idea Books have changed. Instead of having three different books a year there will only be two. One for Spring/Summer and the other for Fall/Winter. The new Idea Book will be available February 1st. If you would like to have a book just e-mail me and I will send you one. My e-mail address is Just let me know that you read it from here.

Well I need to get busy on some other things. I hope you all have a Wonderful Weekend!!
