Hope you are having a great Monday morning!! I'm a little slow today. This weather has really played with my sinuses the last couple of days. I almost had a new granddaughter last week. They called Amanda and told her to go to the hospital because of her BP and they thought they were going to have to take the baby. Of all days, it was on my son's birthday. Wouldn't that be neat to have your daughter on your birthday. Well, she was sent home and they have to tests on her at least twice a week. She was in there all day. We were wondering if she was going to have her. She has three weeks left so I will keep you informed. I'm getting excited.

The feature designer this week is Cupcake Cutiees Design. We used a set that was called Easter Candy and Cakes Clip Art Elements. As soon as I seen the jelly beans I knew I wanted to do something with them. My favorite candy but you can only find it this time of the year. There are many items with this set so you can make many cards and they don't have to be about Easter. The cakes are also cute on there. This is a set that I think that you are going to want to add to your collection. I'm glad it's in mine now. Here's a picture for you to see what I am talking about.


Great set!! Don't forget that you have a week left to get your projects in for this last challenge. The theme was Easter or Spring and you have until March 30th until midnight to get those in.

Well let's get to my project that I did use Jelly Beans in the card.

I hope you like the glitter on the jelly beans. I thought that I would make them pop a little. The carrots also have glitter on them. I'm going to let you know again the our Design Team had a great time with this set also so don't forget to see their blogs. Good Luck to all entries for the challenge and I will see you next Monday for a brand new challenge.

Good Morning!! I'm excited that we are on challenge #100. Look at all the challenges and winners that we have had over all these challenges. I'm glad that I have been here to share in this great moment. I have enjoyed all the challenges that I have been a part of and I'm excited to see what is coming for the future. It is a great feeling that I can share my work with all of you and hopefully it inspires you. I have learned a lot since being on this Design Team and I'm not trying to brag but I think that my card making has improved since starting here. I am so grateful for that. I'm now hoping to start making my scrapbook layouts alot more better.

Let's get to the theme of the challenge this week. It's a great one. At least it was for me. It's Kids Cards. I love kids and really wanted to work on this one. I was lucky to use the Digital Stamp from Digi Darla's Digital Stamp Club. The Digital Stamp that I used was called Boy on Rocking Horse. Since I have a grandson, I thought that I would pick something with a boy in it. Are you ready for the great prize for the winner this week. You are going to love it.

The prizes that we have been having lately are awesome. How would you not want to participate. Here is the card that I made with my little boy. I named the card Boyz with Their Toys.

I hope that you liked it. I have been finding these great little embellishments that I love adding to my cards. Look at the great kids cards that the Design Team has made. They are amazing. Thank You for stopping by for another challenge. Hope to see you next week. Have a Wonderful Week!! I'm actually looking forward to it.

Happy Monday Morning!! It's another great challenge Monday from My Grafico. Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to start a new one. This week I have decided to relax from some things and just focus on my crafting. I have already told the kids my plans. They are old enough to do things on their own for a couple of days.

For the challenge this week we used Digital Stamps from Blackleaf Studio's. They are for Easter of Spring. I tried to put both in my card so I hope I succeded. ( I hope that's spelled right. My spell check isn't working today for some reason) I hope that you will really want to join the challenge with these great digital stamps.

Here is a picture of the Digital Stamp set that we used to show you ideas for this challenge.


Here is the new challenge for the next two weeks. The theme for this challenge is Easter or Spring. You have until March 30 at midnight to get those projects in. The prize for this next challenge is the stamp set you see above.

Hello!! It's a great day to have another challenge. I hope you had a great week . Mine had been very busy getting ready for a craft fair and my son's baby shower which is later today. I will be able to breathe after tomorrow. It will be nice to get back to normal life. Craft fairs are fun but are a lot of work. I have to admit that we cleaned house on the door prizes. The money supports our local volunteer fire department so we always by tickets. But the prizes we one was great. One of them was a complete set on a five gallon bucket of car cleaning supplies. We all know that isn't cheap.

Let's get to the wonderful challenge this week. This week's challenge was to make an Easel Card. We used the Digital Stamps from Fred, She Said.  You really need to go and see her digital stamps. They are great. I used the stamp named " I love you THIS much". I have to admit that I have never done an easel card but once I did get the hang of it (after a lot of help from our Design Team. Thank You!!) and had fun with it. I want to see if I can find a book that you can make all different easel cards. I think I found another thing that I love to do. Well here is the great prize for the winner this week.

A $10.00 Voucher
to the
Fred, She Said Shop.

What a great prize she is giving out. I wouldn't mind wining this one. Now here is my very first Easel Card:

I really hope you liked my very first easel card. Once you try one you will get hooked on making them. I cannot wait to see your creations. This will be fun to see. The Design Team made wonderful Easel Cards and hope you look at all of them. Their blogs are on my sidebar. Good Luck to all that enter and enjoy making these. Have a Wonderful Week.

Welcome to another one of My Grafico's feature Monday. I'm sure you will love the set that was picked for this week. It's something different but fun at the same time. I won't bore you today with my little updates. I had spent time with my grandson this weekend and I could easily write a short story on the things he was doing. He's growing up so fast.

The designer this week is Lil Ellaboudy and we used her set called the Vintage Bundle. This bundle has many things to it. There are a set of black and white patterned paper, a set of full size  (12.5 inches wide) ornate borders, a set of vintage brushes, and a set of 8x6 floral photo borders. Everything in this Vintage Bundle is in black and white but I added a little color to mine. Here is a picture of the Vintage Bundle for you to look at for yourself.


This is a very large bundle but there are so many different projects that you can make from it. The Design Team has out done theirselves with this set this week. They have made many different projects from this set that I was amazed with. They have great talent.

Don't forget that you still have a week to enter the challenge that started last Monday. You have until March 16th at midnight to get them in. The challenge was about flowers. Very easy challenge for you to still get into.

Let me show you my project from this bundle. I did do a card and like I said before I did add color to mine. I have a hard time making something that is just black and white.

I do hope you like the way I used this set. I really loved all the things in the bundle. I will be going back and using this again for other projects. I can't wait. I can't stress it enough for you to look at the other teams projects. Their blogs are on my sidebar. Hope you have a Wonderful Week and Good Luck to you all that participate in the challenge.

Good Morning Everyone!! Did everyone remember to spring their clocks ahead? My husband makes sure all the clocks are correct before he goes to bed. It will take me a couple days to get back in my daily routine. The time changes always throws me off. I still don't understand why.

You are going to love this week's theme. It's Easter!!! When my kids started getting older we really didn't do much for this holiday but I'm excited because now I have Grandchildren to hide baskets for. I love their faces when they see what they get. I don't do much of the candy thing but there is always a great toy or two in there. If my husband isn't with me they get a little extra from Grandma. LOL

Off course again. This week's challenge again is Easter and the digital stamp that I used came from the wonderful shop of Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps & More. You will love the stamps there. She has so many great stamps to choose from that it takes me awhile to pick the one I want to share. So I chose the stamp Babette the Bunny. I dressed her in pastel colors and a pretty Easter Egg Paper. I can't wait to give her to someone. The prize for this week's challenge is:

Now let's take a look at the card I made this week with Babette:

I hope that you liked my creation of Babette. I can't wait to see your projects you made for this week's challenge. My Great Gals from the Design Team have made the cutest cards that you will love. I hoveall their blogs listed on my sidebar so you can go and take a look for yourself. I wish you all Good Luck in the Challenge and I will see you again for another challenge next Sunday. Have a Wonderful Week.

Welcome another Monday Challenge with My Grafico. I can't believe it's another Monday already. Again, I wake up to flurries outside. This weather is so crazy. I just hope that it's not a hot summer. I hope everyone enjoyed our last challenge we had here. There's going to be another great one this week.

This week we used Digital Stamps from Stockberry Studio's and the set was called St. Patrick's Day. There were many cute images with this one but I wanted to do something different with this one. I hope you like it as much as I did making it. I'm not Irish but I didn't mind doing a St. Patrick's Day Card. There are many out there that go all out for this Holiday.

Here is the sample of the Digital Stamps at Stockberry Studio's Page at the My Grafico's store.


Here is the challenge for the next two weeks: The theme for this challenge is St. Patrick's Day. The prize for the winner of this challenge will receive the Digital Stamps above. You have until March 16th until midnight. Make sure you make it a St Patrick's Day Project. You just need to go to My Grafico Challenge Blog to enter your project and make sure you remember the rules.

Here is the Card that I made for this week. I hope it inspires you for your projects.

I hope you have enjoyed this post. The other Design Team Members made some really cute projects. When you have the time please go and look at their blogs. There are so many different ideas that I didn't think of. Well, that's the end of the post. Have a Wonderful Week and I will see you again next Monday.

Good Morning!! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend so far. I got up this morning and seen a dusting of snow on the ground. The winter around here has been very crazy. I also have a living room full of Girl Scout Cookies. My daughter insists on selling as much as she can. Now I have all these boxes here. The funny thing is that my cat's are fighting to be on the tallest box. It's funny because they knock each other down to get there. I'm glad I have something to keep me company when no one is here.

This week is a fun challenge. We used a digital stamp from the designer Limited Runs Digital Stamps. The theme for this week is "Cupcakes". They had so many cute cupcakes that it was hard to decide which one to work with. Until I seen one that had an elephant on it. My son has collected elephants since he was very little. His Grandma was the first to give him one and that's where is all started. Well here is the prize for this week's challenge:

Three Images
of the Winner's choice
from the
Limited Runs Digital Stamps Store.

Now that I have given you all the information on the challenge and the prizes let me show you the card that I made with my elephant cupcake. I call this card "Happy Birthday"

I told you he was a cute image. I had a lot of fun working with him. Now I have a Birthday Card to give my son this year. I know he will add it to his collection. The Design Team has worked hard on this week's challenge and it would be great if you looked at their blogs also. Everyone did different cupcakes so you will have a lot of inspiration. Enjoy this week's challenge and I will see you next Sunday.
