Good Afternoon!! I'm a little late writing this but I slept in a little this morning.I had a very busy weekend running everywhere. The best part was I spent an afternoon with my granddaughter. Of course, I didn't put her down. She is so beautiful and little. I even fed her and watched her look around everywhere. She knows her daddy's voice because she turned her head to where he was standing. I could of stayed all day but I had more running to do. It was just precious holding her and watching her.

Enough about my fun weekend, let's get to our new challenge this week. We had two sets of images we could use this week by designers Cheri Wenger and Sarah Paris. Cheri Wenger's set was called Mom Stitched Verses and Sarah Paris was Mother's Day. I used one of the sentiments from Sarah Paris. It was hard to choose from all of them but I finally made it to one with my daughter's help. I'm now making another one for my mom for Mother's Day. Let me show you the set's

So here is the challenge for the next two weeks. Make a project about Mother's Day. This should be one of the easiest theme's we could have for the next two weeks. All projects are due May 11 until midnight. Place your prjects here at My Grafico Challenge Blog. The prize for this challene will be the set that we will feature next Monday. So make sure you come back to see what your playing for.

Here is the Mother's Day card that I made for this week

Please visit the other design teams blogs. There are so many beautiful cards that was made for this challenge. Hope you like my version of my Mother's Day card. Don't forget to get those projects in. Have a Wonderful Week!!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday morning. I cannot believe that it will be May this week. For me that means summer break will be coming in a month for my daughter. Then my daughter will be in the seventh grade. This year is going so fast that I wish it would slow down just a little bit. My grand daughter is already 10 days old. She's going to grow up fast just like my grandson. It seems that your grandchildren grow up faster then your kids.

Well this week out theme is create Cards For A New Baby. This is going to be a fun one for everyone to do. The designer that we used digital stamps for this week is The Crafty Pad. These digital stamps are very cute. We could choose between a baby girl, baby boy or a rocking horse. Since I was having a new granddaughter I picked the baby girl. I'm always doing things about my grandson so this was different for me to work with little girls. Let me tell you the prize for this weeks challenge.

Welcome to another feature Monday with My Grafico. I really think you will like the feature that we have for you today. The design team has worked very hard to show you what you can do with the set we used. The designer that we used for this feature is Baby Star Designs. The set was called Love, Trees, and Friends. There was so many possibilities that you could do with this set. I ended up doing a card named In Love. I was a little busy this week with having a new grand daughter named Remie Faith. My son looks so happy but that little girl is going to have him wrapped around his little finger. That's the way my daughter is with her father.

Let me show you the set that we were able to play with this week.

The little quotes were enough for me to make my card. I hope you can see the potential with this set.

Remember that you have one more week to enter the challenge on Fun and Games. You have until April 27th until midnight. I'm sure you all have great projects for this theme. Please enter your projects at My Grafico Challenge Blog.

Here is the card that I made to show you for the feature. I hope that you like it.

I have to say that this card ended up prettier then I had imagined. This will be great to give to my husband for a just because card. I hope you enjoyed this feature and I will see you next week for a whole new challenge. Have a wonderful week and I will see you next Monday.

Welcome to another Sunday Challenge with Robyn's Fetish Challenge. It's cold and cloudy here. Not very fun. I was actually in a craft fair yesterday and today in a big building with not heat. It was in the 40's and I froze all day. I see a cold coming on. Believe it or not there was people coming in to look and I sold stuff but don't know if it was worth sitting it the cold all day. I think I will relax all day tomorrow just to recover from the weekend. The only thing that I missed this weekend was my grand daughter coming home and seeing her. She is so precious and my grandson is very protective of her. He won't let the other sister's get near her. He's going to be a great big brother. Enough about me. How about getting to the challenge for this week.

The theme for this week is use pastels only. Look at all the spring time colors you can use for this challenge. I love the theme for this week. It was fun to use pastels. This week we had our images from the designer Heart Song Designs. The images were great. I made one with Theadore Tulip. He's a very cute little bunny and it was fun to work with. Here is the prize to one of our lucky challengers.

Heart Song Designs Store

So here is the card with all pastels.

I hope you enjoyed the card. I love the ribbon I found with the tulips. I think it went well nicely. Now to a close for this post. I hope to see you all enter your pastel cards and I will see you next week. Good Luck to you all.

I am so excited that I wanted to share my news with everyone I know and everyone that reads my blog. Yesterday I became a new grandma again. Her name is Remie Faith Michael. She was born on Wednesday April 18th at 8:24 am. She weighed 8lbs. 4ounces, 20.5 inches long and cute as a bug. There are so many pictures that were taken by so many people that we all have to make copies for each other. When I get more I will post them but here is one that I love:

I told you she was adorable. My grandson seen her last night and the  pictures that my son shared with me on facebook was so precious that I cried and my daughter thought I was crazy. I really wanted to share this one but I cannot get it to here. My son is going to give me his memory card so I can get the picture. I think he is going to love her and protect her like big brothers do. 

When I get more pictures I will post some more and let you know her progress. Thanks for letting me share this with you. I'm just so proud.

Hope your having a great beginning to the first day of the week. I'm running a little late as usual. I just couldn't get out of bed this morning. It was so quiet without anyone home that I was enjoying the peace. If you read yesterday's post, my grand daugter will be born Wednesday. I'm excited. My son's starting to get scared and excited all at the same time. He'll do good. His son is the best little man. I love him with my heart.

Well this week is a challenge week. The designer that we made our projects with is Jessica Weible Illustrations. The name of the set is called Viva Las Vegas. I have to admit that I did have a hard time coming up with an idea but once I started playing around with the images my idea just popped up. I made this an anniversay card but writing the happy anniversay didn't look good anywhere. So I had to leave it off.

Let me show you the set that I'm talking about:

So here is the challenge for the next two weeks. The theme is Fun and Games. You have until Friday April 27th at midnight. The winner of this challenge will receive this set up above. You can have alot of fun with this one. Just enter your projects at My Grafico Challenge Blog. When you go there you will see all the creations that the Design Team made. They are some great cards.

Good Morning on this beautiful day. We are already half way through April. Where has this year went? Wednesday I will have a new grand daughter. I'm so excited. They had to set up a day for a C-Section so this is the only way that I know she will be here Wednesday. This will be my son's second child. I still have a hard time believing I'm a grandma. Being a grandma is a great time in life. I just wish I could see them alot more.

The theme for this week's challenge is another great one. It will make you want to have Spring come alot faster. We are making Spring Image Cards for this challenge. We had the great opportunity to use two designer's for this theme. We were able to chose an image from Robyn's Fetish's Store and we were also allowed to pick a piece of digital paper from Bearly Mine Designs. The spring paper that we used was called "Spring Blossoms". These are very beautiful papers and it was hard to ick from this collection. My image is one of my favorite to do. It's Penelope the dog. This is the third that I have used on my cards. Penolope has different images and I'm addicted to her images.

The prize for this week's challenge is:
"Spring Blossoms"
digital paper set from
Bearly Mine Designs
1 Spring
Digital Stamp from
Robyn's Fetish.

What a great prize. You will want to participate in this challenge. These are great papers and Robyn's Fetish has great images. Well here is my card with Penelope the Dog. I named the card "Planting My Bone". A little humor.

I'm still trying to get a new camera so I hope you can see this OK. Camera's are so expensive. The one I want is almost $700. I will have to save to get this one. I hope you click on the card and see it bigger to appreeciate the full effect. Well this is the challenge this week. I hope you do particpate. I'm going to go and enjoy the day and I will see you next Sunday. Good Luck to all that enter's and have a Wonderful Week. By the way, dont forget to look at all the designers blogs to see their spring cards.

Good Morning or Afternoon!! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. I can honestly say I did. It was not a traditional day but it turned out great. I actually tried to tan my legs and my son's laughed at ghostly I looked. Kids are the best. Also, in ten days I will have my new grand daughter. They have to do a C-section so we know the exact day. My son is naming her Remie Faith. Believe it or not Remie is short for a gun. I couldn't believe it but I can't make him change it. I'm going to call her sweet pea.

Well for this week's feature we used some clip art from Riefka Designs. The name of the clip art was Sweet and Yummy Ice Cream. This set reminded me of summer. I really think I'm ready for summer this year. I'm a winter person but I think things will be different for me this year. I'm trying to get out of my comfort zone. Anyway, this set was fun to work with. With the yummy ice cream cones and popsicles look so good. Let's take a look at these yummy sweets.


I told you that these looked yummy. They would look great on a Scrapbook Layout with pictures of your children eating their ice cream cones. I already have a layout in mind but can't find the pictures that I know I have. It will be done though.

Don't forget that you still have time for the challenge that started last week. The end date of the challenge is April 13th at midnight. This is going to be an easy challenge and you can win a great prize. Remember to enter your entries at My Grafico Challenge Blog. If you have forgotten the rules they are there also.

Here's my yummy card that I made:

I hope you enjoyed the card. The paper I found for it was cute and by total accident. It worked though. Don't forget the challenge and look at the other Design Teams Blogs to see what they did with set. Have a Wonderful Week and Good Luck to everyone that is entering the challenge.

Hoppy Easter as we say in our house. What a beautiful day outside. I can honestly say that this year we did something different for this holiday. The kids went and spent a night with their one Grandma and went to see the new Titanic Movie in 3D. They all had a great time. I actually was able to spend the day on Saturday with all three of my children and my grandson. That was the best gift they could have ever given me. We spent almost whole day together sitting around and talking and laughing. That's what family is all about. I'm very happy they did this for me. They are the greatest kids and I'm a very lucky mother.

We have a great theme that I know everyone will like this week. It's anything goes!! Who doesn't want to enter this challenge. I love these theme's. You can practically do anything you want for this challenge. The sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish. We were lucky that we used anyone of their digital stamps to work on this week. I chose an image called the Birdie's Nest. What a great stamp to use. I hope you like it as much as I do. Let me tell you the prize for this week's challenge.

3 Images

Robyn's Fetish Store.

Well let me show you the card that I made with the Birdies Nest. I did enjoy making this one.
I think you would love working with this one also.

I hope you find the humor in the Happy Bird'sDay. It just came to me when I was working on it. I hope you enjoy this card and the theme of the week. Since we could do anything, check out the other Design Team's blogs and see what they did. Enjoy your holiday and I will see you next week. Good Luck to you all.

Happy April Fool's Day!! One day that my family has fun with. My children try every year to get me on something but it never happens. That's is what's fun for me. I on the other hand, always get them with something. Believe it or not the joke for the past 15 years always has a deer in it. I just laugh because they fall for it every year. Love you kids but be on the look out today. LOL

The theme this week is cards depicting sports. There are so many sports out there that it was hard to decide to pick what I wanted to do. My family loves to hunt so my card was a great one to do. The only thing I ran into was that it is very hard to find things for hunting. You can find stuff for every other sport but not for hunting. Talk about frustration. So the digi stamp  I used was from Bugaboo Digi Stamps. You really need to look at the great stamps here. Many to choose from and very hard to decide what you would like to work with. The prize for this weeks winner is: WOW

$21 Voucher
to the
Bugaboo Digi Stamps Store

This is another awesome prize. Who wouldn't want to particpate in this challenge? I would love to have this prize. You are all going to get a great prize this week. So, here is the card that I made with my Digital Stamp Gus Hunting. I think Gus is having a hard time finding his deer. So, here is the card.

I tried to make Gus a redneck. I hope I succeded. With all the sports out there I hope you visit the rest of the Design Team's Blog's to see what sport they picked. I can say there is a cheerleader, football player, and many more. There blogs are on my sidebar. Very easy to get to. Good Luck with this challenge and have fun with it. I will have another challenge next Sunday. So I will see you then. Have a Wonderful Week!!
