Hope everyone is having a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend spending time with friends and family. It's a hot weekend here. In the 90's and very humid. I'm very grateful that I have this window air conditioner. If you turn it on at a certain time it can actually cool down the bottom of my house. That tells you how small my house is. LOL It's even smaller with four cats and a dog. I don't think you consider the two fish tanks that my kids have in their rooms. We are all animal people. If I could I would add some more cats but not at this time.

As you seen in the title our theme this week is Happy Birthday Cards with a Sentiment on the front. This was a fun card for me. I did something different with the image that I used from Inked Treasures. The name of my image is called Blowing Bubbles Ellie. She is a cute little girl elephant. Since she was a girl I didn't use pink. I used the color blue. I loved doing this card. I hope you like what I did with it. Now let me tell you what the prize you can win this week for your entry.


Here is the card that I used with Blowing Bubbles Ellie. I hope you like it.

I love this card. It is definately one of my favorite one's that I made. The design team made great cards also and it would be great if you went to their blogs and see their great work. Leave them a little love while you are there. I will see you next week. I can't believe it but it will be the first weekend of June. Have a Wonderful Week!!

Good Morning!! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I'm not doing to bad. It's starting to get hot here. It's nice to feel the heat but I know that it will get to hot for me. I'm more of a winter person. I use to love summer until I was put on medicine that makes it hard for me to be in the sun. I have to go out with a big hat and I just get to hot and feel like I'm going to pass out. It's not the funnest thing to go through. I really hate getting older.

This week we are doing one of the favorite challenges that everyone loves. ANYTHING GOES!! No one can say that they hate this challenge. You get to do anything that you want. We worked with the digital stamps from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More. She has some of my favorite digital stamps that I use. The stamp that I used was called Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. With just hearing the name you know that it is going to be a cute digital stamp. He is so cute and looks so peaceful at the side of he bed. As you should know, I love anything with a kid scene. Let's get to the good stuff. The prize of the challenge.


For the winner, you could pick the digital stamp that I used for this project. Remember, I said he was a cute little boy. He's the card that I made with him.

I don't know if you can see the background paper but it is clouds on yellow paper. I thought it look great and made everything come together. Since this challenge is an anything goes please visit our other Design Team Blogs and see what they created for this week. I wish you all good luck and I will see you all next week. Hope your week is fun and relaxing after that day's of work.

Good Morning everyone. I hope you had a great Mother's Day. This year was great spending time with my Grandmother and family that I haven't seen for years. It was very different but was a great feeling to be with family.

I would like to share with you that I will not be here next Monday. It's very sad to say but my husband will be having surgery Wednesday and I will be helping him recover. Once we get in a routine here at home I will be back to making my projects for My Grafico. He will be getting a partial knee replacement that we have waited for 5 years. He hurt it through work and he's on Workman's Comp. It takes so long to get them to finally approve things. I will be so glad when he isn't hurting anymore. It's very hard to see your husband in pain all the time.

Our challenge for the next two weeks is going to be Blast Off. Our Design Team was able to a Digital Stamp designed by Kelly Medina Studio's. The name of the set was Outer Space Boys. I love this set and I'm sure you will also. You can do many things with this set for little boys. Of course I thought of my Grandson when I was making this and my daughter for the say on the card. It's a saying that I say to her all the time. Let's not wait anymore and show you the set that we used.

I just love this set. It's so cute. So, again, this is the challenge for the next two weeks. Make a project with things that Blast Off. All of our projects are due by midnight on May 25th. My brother's birthday. Please load your projects over at My Grafico's Challenge Blog. The prize that you are playing for is the set above. It is an adorable set worth playing for.

Here is the card that I made for this challenge. Remember, the saying is what I say to my daughter. She is my angel.

Please visit the other Design Teams Blogs and see what they made from this set. There are great projects and it's amazing how the cards are so different. I wish you all good luck with this challenge and I will see you in two weeks. Good Luck to all of you that enter and wish my family good luck for my husband's surgery.

Robyn's Fetish Challenge #107 with Paper Piecing

Happy Mother's Day to everyone!! Suppose to have a cookout at my Grandma's but it's suppose to rain all day. I guess we will just have everything indoors. As long as I get to spend time with my Grandma, I will be happy. I do want to apologize for my short post last week. It was a very hard time for me because we had a death in the family. My grandmother wasn't doing well and that was very painful for me. I love my grandmother dearly. She has always been there for me and if my best friend. Enough of my sorrow, let's get to the great challenge this week.

I can honestly say that I had never done a paper piecing project. I did have a hard time with it but ended up with a great example for it. I think the hardest part was trying to get the pieces to fit where I had wanted them. It took me four times to finally get it. We used the digital stamps from Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps. My image that I used was called Mousey Girl Sunflower Sitter. I love sunflowers so this was the perfect image for me. So, let me tell you about the prize that a lucky winner will winner for this challenge.

5 Digital Stamps
of the Winner's Choice from the
Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps Store

I'm going to have two pictures for you to look at this week. The first will be the picture of my card and the second picture is a close up of the paper piecing that I did on the sunflower.

I hope you can see the different paper on the petals of the sunflower. That is where my paper piecing is. The other Designs did there own paper piecing so I would head on over to their blogs and see what they have done. Happy Mother's Day and I will see you next week for another great challenge.

Hope your having a Wonderful Monday morning. I do apologize that this will be a straight to the feature blog.

The set that we are featuring this week is designed by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. The name of her set is called Funky Jars to Fill. These are cute jars that had candy, marbles, and bubble gum. These jars reminded me of the jars we used when I was growing up when we canned almost everything we grew in our family garden. My Day made sure that our garden was big enough for all of use to eat and have enough to go through the winter. He still makes a little one for us to come over and pick through. He's a true country man.

Let me show you this terrific set


Remember you still have until May 11th to get your Mother's Day project in. Just remember to put it on the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog.

Here's the card that I made with this set. I call it Penny Candy. I went back in time to make this one. I hope you all remember when you could go into the General Store and get Penny Candy.

I hope you enjoyed this week's feature and next week we will have another challenge. Make sure you come back and see what you will be trying to win. Have a great week and see you next Monday.

Good Morning!! I'm surprised I'm awake so early. So not me. Today, I will be going straight to the challenge. I hope you don't mind.

This week the Robyn's Fetish Design Team used digital stamps designed by Floppy Latte Designs. The image I chose was Pull Along Duck. Our theme was a fun one. I don't remember making what I think they call a recipe card. We had to use "Buttons, Blue and a Bow Too".
This was a fun combination to work with. I went with a light blue because of the duck. I can honestly say that I could not find number embellishments for this but did get the ABC's. So here is the great prize this week that you can win.

$10.00 Voucher
To The
Floppy Latte Digital Designs Store

So here is my Pull Along Duck

I think he is a cute duck. I remember these ducks from when I was little and the dogs to. I hope you enjoyed your card this morning and come back next Sunday for another great challenge. All I can tell you is that I have never done this type of card before. Please look at the other Design Team Blogs. They have great cards for this challenge too. Have a Wonderful Week!!
