How is everyone this Monday? Of course it's another start of a new week and it's also going to be the beginning of March. Two things that I know off the top of my head is St Patrick's Day is coming and so is my oldest son's birthday. He really makes me feel old. He will be turning 23. It doesn't seem possible. I call hime my gunie pig because everything that I started learning about being a mother was with his help. Now he's the one giving me the chance to be a great grandmother to my first grandchild. It's been our inside joke since I can remember. It's nice to have this bond with him. I'm so glad that I'm close to him and my other children. I never really had that and was determined that my kids knew they were loved.  I really rambled on about that. Let's get to our feature this week.

Our feature this week is Whimsy Irish Elements. These were designed by Cupcake Cuties. These digital stamps can be used for anything. I know there are some people out there that don't believe in St Patrick's Day but these stamps can be used for other purposes. You can use the card that I made this week for alot of things. Here is the picture of the set so you can interpret it any way that you would like.


The little girls could be used for anything. I think they are so adorable. I'm glad that we were able to feature them for you.

Don't forget to enter the challenge that is still going on until March 2nd at midnight. All you have to do is get a project made with flowers. Who doesn't love using flowers on their project? I'm wishing you all Good Luck with this one. 

Here is my card that I made with the Whimsy Irish Elements:

The card is a little darker but for some reason the picture wouldn't come out to show you that. I spent alot of time trying to get it to but had no luck. I think this summer I'm ging to take some photography class to see what I'm doing wrong. I would have loved to become a photographer but my life didnt turn out that way. I love to take pictures.

I hope you enjoyed this week's feature. The other Design Team Members made beautiful projects also so if you would like to leave them a little love that would be great. I hope you have a wonderful week and see ya next week.

Good Morning!! I hope you are doing great and seeing the sun shining. At least it's real sunny here but very cold. My dog is under blankets and she was only outside for a couple of minutes. She even had her sweater on and still was shivering. My dog has a skin condition that makes her scratch and she has lost most of her fur. She has to have clothes on at all times. Sometimes I feel like I have another baby but I love her to pieces.

This week the Design Team worked with Shelly's Images. This is the first time I worked with her digital stamps but I'm glad I had the chance. She has some wonderful images to work with. With her stamps our theme that we used this week is "People". I picked something that was out of the

A $9.oo Voucher to
Shelly's Images Store
to purchase Digital Stamps of
The winner's Choice

The Digital Stamp that I used was called Round Up. This was a cowboy on his horse. I love horses. I would love to have a fame so I could have one. I even asked my Dad who has 10 acres if I could board one there and I got a big NO. Well here is my card I made for the people theme. i call it "Cowboy Up"

This was fun to do. I''m glad I found all this cowboy stuff to go with it. Since the theme was People please take a look at the other Design Teams Blogs to see the people that they chose to use. I wish you all Good Luck with your projects and Have a Wonderful Week and I will see you next Sunday.

Good Morning to everyone. Are you ready for this week? I know that I have a lot to do and hope to get it all done. I guess this is part of someones long weekend. I know that I get to have my daughter home today. She is excited not to go to school this week. Although she will probably do a lot of texting. I can say that is much better then having the phone ring all the time. They have so much technology these days and I'm still trying to keep up on it all. My daughter knows more about my cell phone then I do. They have no idea how easy they have it these days.

This week's challenge was a fun one for me. My daughter is actually trying to take it and put it in her room. I'm glad that she like the stuff I do. She even put one of my cards on her Christmas list last year. She did get it. It was one of the cards that I loved but I love her, so she received it. I'm talking (LOL) to much. Let's us move on.

The digital stamps that we used this week is by Sanqunetti Designs and the name of the set is Blooming Friendship. Their are several designs with this digital stamp set and they are beautiful. I love to make things with flowers and this was a great set for me. Here is a look at this set.


Here is the challenge for the next two weeks. Make a project with some flowers. You have until March 2nd at midnight to get your projects in. This is a really easy project so I hope to see many of your projects. You just need to go to My Grafico Challenge Blog to enter your project and you can also see the rules there.

Here Is the project that I made this week. I didn't go with a card but a pot of flowers.

I hope this gave you a little inspiration to think out of the box. The Design Team made different projects so it would be great to stop and see what they have made. It's time to say goodbye and I will see you next week. Have a Wonderful Week!!

Good Morning!! I hope you are up and awake to see the post I have for you today. Hopefully everyone had a great Valentine's Day. People think I'm weird but I don't believe in Valentine's Day. I would rather be surprised with flowers or something cute out of the blue. So being with my husband for 24 years we know that we are each others valentine and we surprise each other through the year.

This week the Design Team worked with designer  Whoopsie Daisy. She has very cute stamps. Whoopsie Daisy gave us four images for our team to work with. With there being four you may want to see all the design teams blogs to see what image they choose. The theme this week was "Pretty In Pink". Choosing my paper was the hardest part in doing this weeks card. There was so much pink paper that I had in my stash. The prize is another great one. I know I say that a lot but the prizes are great.

Here is the prize for this week's
Three sheet's of

The sheet we used had four images so think about how many digi's you can win. Well here is the card that I made. She is a very cute little girl. Please excuse the picture. I'm still working things out but I'm learning with what I have.

I hope that you enjoyed the card and the information on the challenge. I know I enjoyed this one. Have a Wonderful Week!!

Thank You for stopping by to see the new challenge this week for Robyn's Fetish. If you see anything that looks funny, I'm on very strong sinus medication and I'm trying to get this to you. I will apologize in advance if it sounds goofy in any way. I will be making this a little shorter then usual.

This week we used a Digital Stamp from Paper Pretties. The theme we used is "Square Card". I have never done a square card but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be since I didn't have extra space in the length or width. The digital stamp I used was called caffeine. I really hope you get what I am trying to portray in the card. I showed everyone and my Dad was the only one that got the little joke. You can tell I'm my father's daughter. The prize this week is a great one. Here it is:

6 DIGI'S Of The
Winner's Choice From

Remember to go to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to get all the details. Here is the card that I made. I'm still learning about the glitter stuff. I'm hoping that you can see this one alot better.

Hope you enjoyed this week's challenge. I really hope to see you enter. Have a Wonderful Week.

Welcome again to another Monday Challenge. Yes, a new challenge. Did anyone watch that Super Bowl last night. It was a very good game but I could have bopped my daughter. She was louder then the TV. We even let her stay up so she could see the confetti. I had no idea that they had confetti at the end but she did. Half time was great. Madonna actually did a great family oriented show. I have loved her music ever since her first song. My daughter thought her music stunk. You can tell between generations there. I have to say that I wanted the Giants to win and yeh they did. Happy Days!!

I'm pretty sure you will love this week's challenge and the image that we all used. The Digital Stamp was designed by Sarah Paris and we used her single digital stamp named Fairy Buttercup. I bet you are already thinking of the project that you are wanting to make to enter our challenge. The fairy is absolutely adorable and I loved working with her. Here is the example of the Stamp.

Fairy Buttecup

I told you she was cute. If you would like to look at it at the store you can go to My Grafico Arts & Crafts Community. The specific page for this stamp is Here.

Here is the challenge for the next two weeks. It's going to be a fun one. The challenge is Fairy Girl or St. Patricks Day. Entries will be accepted until February 17th at midnight. That's two weeks to make those cute projects. To enter your projects go to My Grafico's Challenge Blog

Here is my card that I made. I went with the fairy and made a St. Patricks day card with her. The winner of this challenge will receive the Digital Stamp above by Sarah Paris. She could be used for many of things.

Remember that the other Design Team members made projects with this stamp also. If you have the time please visit their blog and leave them some love. I wouldn't mind some love also. HINT HINT. Have a Wonderful Week and I'll be back.

Welcome to Sunday's Challenge. I totally forgot to write this late night. My daughter has had so many things going on this weekend that I fell asleep last night very early. So not like me but I was trying to clean in between taking her where she needed to go. All I can say is when you get a bunch of girls in one place for a birthday party there is going to be major drama. They are only 12 and 13. It's hard to believe the things they argue about. Pure headache.

Well that was short and sweet so we can get to this weeks challenge. The stamp that we used for this week's challenge was from Robyn's Fetish. The challenge was a recipe challenge. You had to use 2 pieces of paper, 1 ribbon, 1 die cut or punched item, and 1 "bling". This was such a fun challenge that I hope we do more of these. Trying to find each one and coordinate it together was great. I really hope you participate in this challenge. See how fun you will have with it. Here's the prize you can win this week.

Of The Winner's Choice
From The
Robyn's Fetish Store.

Here is the project that I made with the Recipe Challenge. I think I did pretty good fpr my first one.

I hope you think I did good with my first recipe challenge. I can't wait to see yours.
