Hello from Hot and Humid Ohio. The weather is going up and down that you don't know if you will be miserable or happy for the day. Its not helping with the packing and unpacking of my mother-in-laws house. We are doing the stuff that will come to my home and then to other relatives and if there is anything left it will be sold or put in storage. I will be glad when this is all done.
Who's ready for our challenge?

Limited Runs Digital Stamps is our sponsor for the "Butterflies" Challenge #322. They were very gracious and let me use their image "Butterfly 3." I just love butterflies. So, I ended up calling this card "Butterfly Garden." Since I had put all different flowers and butterflies laying on top of them I thought this was a perfect name. 

Before I explain what I did with my card, I would like to tell you what Limited Runs Digital Stamps will be giving to the winner.

3 Digital Stamps

That will be a great prize. They have the cutest images. You should go over and look. You will want to join our challenge then. So, with the card that I made, I wanted to try to color the butterfly with the same colors that were on the butterfly paper. I think that I came really close. I know that butterflies usually fly around flowers, so I wanted to make a garden of them so the butterflies had a place to go. I used a blue circle to break up the pink decorative circle from the background paper. Here is where everything I used came from.

Cardstock --  The Paper Studio
Paper --  The Paper Studio
Decorative Frame --  Spellbinders Nestabilities (Beaded Circle) 
Basic Circle --  Stencils Of Circles
Butterfly Embellishments --  Dress It Up (Jesse James)
Flowers --  Prima Flowers and Wild Orchid Crafts

I hope you enjoyed my inspiration for you to make your card with butterflies. Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog will be excited to see the cards you make. When you get there check out the other cards that the Design Team made. We also have great tutorials. I hope you have a fantastic week and I will be here next Sunday with the next challenge.

Challenges I Have Entered

Good Morning!! Hope all is well with you as you are reading this. This past week we had our first heat wave. It was 95 degrees and I was scrubbing floors in this. I don't have air conditioning but a big ceiling fan in my kitchen. It felt hot but I did not know it reached that high until I watched the news that night. It's just now reaching summer and it's coming in hot. Now, let's get to the "Things With Wheels" challenge

Our sponsor this week is A Random Fan. The image that is used was called, "Travel Bug." I named the card "Let's Go Traveling" just because it was the sentiment that I used on my Easel card. A different style of card that I made this week. Here is my "Travel Bug."

I would like to tell you what the winner of this week's challenge will be receiving from A Random Fan.

3 Digital Images 

When I seen this image I had an idea right away that I wanted to do. Unfortunately, the pictures I was going to use for a scrapbook layout didn't have one of my grand children by their little battery operated cars. I had one with their car alone but the rest the two of them were always together in a picture. So, back to the drawing board. I was looking through some books and thought an Easel card would be great because I had little cars to go with this bug. The paper fit perfectly with the car and then the sentiment was just the icing on the cake. I think this turned out really cute but I couldn't get the card to darken up like you would be seeing it in person. Here is what I used to make the Easel Card.

Good Day to everyone no matter what time it is when you are reading this post. Hope you had a great weekend. I have been putting the finishing touches on the room that my husband and I remodeled to put my scrapbooking stuff and other crafts that I work on. It's not as big as I really need but my mother-in-law is moving in with us and she will be taking my big room I was going to use. You have to do things differently when it comes to family. I do have more things to do on the room but I need to get everything out of the other room because she is moving in at the end of the month. Now I'm going to move along to our new challenge of the week.


Our sponsor for this week's challenge is A Day For Daisies. I would like to show you the card with the image "Wall Art" that I used from A Day For Daisies Store. I call it "The Writing Is On The Wall."

A Day For Daisies is giving the winner of this weeks challenge "Children At Play" projects this prize.

$12.00 Gift Certificate

I really found this image adorable. I remember my children when they were little writing on the walls of their room. Couldn't just wash it off. Some of it had to be painted over. I was grateful when they grew out of this stage. Since this was obviously a toddler I wanted it to be a Birthday Card from the toddler to his mommy. I colored the wall to make it look like a wall that a toddler drew on. I made the mistakes on purpose. Since he was using crayons I found this great paper and had embellishments to go perfect with it. I tried to find a teddy bear that a toddler would carry but I couldn't so I just put a cat that sits beside him. I found this great font that kind of looked like a child's writing. I really think it turned out great. I hope you do also. Here are the items I used.

Paper - The Paper Studio
Crayon's & Cat - Dress It Up
Font Used On Sentiment - Andy Fish

Hello Everyone!! It's been since January since I last posted anything. I do apologize for the quick disappearance. I just wanted to say that it was a life changing experience and would not wish it on anyone. Stay close to your family and friends. You never know what will happen to them one day when it comes out of no where. So with that said, here is this week's challenge with "Baby Cards."

I want to show you my card that I made with the image from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More. His name is Peapod Patrick and here he is. 

The winner of this challenge will receive 
3 Digital Images

Since pea-pods are grown from vines I wanted to add some vines into the card. So, I used a punch that I had found called "Blooming Vines" by Martha Stewart. I made two frames from this punch. The one on the outside and there is one behind Patrick. After putting this together I wish I would have made the little one with a different color or stamped around the edges. (HINT: Those are two things that you may want to try.) There are flowers on the edges so I put pearls on the little frame to make the flowers stand out a little more. The background paper has little mice on it which they are very cute to. Then I colored the image to match all the papers with the card. I put blue on him just to make him stand out more because this was the image I was using. Let me give you the list of items that I used.

Cardstock - From My Stash Of Unknowns
Paper - Miss Elizabeth
Decorative Frames - Punch Around The Page (Martha Stewart-Blooming Vines)
Pearls - Want 2 Scrap
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

Thank You for reading my post. I do hope that you enjoyed it and it gives you some inspiration. Don't forget to enter your Baby Card over at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Have a Wonderful Week!!
