Tag You're It!

Whimsie Doodles has a tag challenge going on. I bought the Paws I Care set a long time ago and never used it. Now I have! I guess this tag is really cute because the girl asked if I could hold it until next Christmas and put it on her gift. LOL! Wow, that's along time to wait for a gift tag so I guess I'll just give it to her.

Flowers make me happy

I won a digi last week from Happi Scrappin' Digi store. I chose this lovely floral wreath as my prize and decided to use it this week in their inspirational challenge.

I can't wait to use this image again. I think this would look wonderful in blue as well.

Hoot Hoot Hooray!

I made this card for the Tiffany Doodles sketch challenge. I've had this image for a while and really wanted to use it. I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out seeing as the image is a fall image from her Fall Critters collection.

I dumped my scrap pile and found some of my favorite papers - bright and loud. I also added a touch of another favorite - gems and ribbons.

Here is my creations.

So like Houston

I was looking through some images I've had printed for a while and I came across one that is so like my Houston. This is from Karen's Doodles and you would have thought she had met Houston before. He is a terror but in a playful way and he loves to chew. When he gets caught he has the sweetest look on his face and his tail just wags.

He is the most spoiled pet I have ever had but I love him to death.

AWWWW, it's the weekend! Let the crafting begin!

Poppin' in with Deedee's Digis

Hi everyone. Well it's been one of those weeks but the upside is that today is Friday and we survived! Tonight is definitely movie night with my little lady. We're going to kick back and just relax. The extra butter is waiting for our popcorn, now we just have to agree on the movie. LOL!

I have been getting into some really great older movies recently. I've watched the Twilight series (love them!), The Notebook (Awesome) and Pearl Harbor (OMG!)

This week's project is definitely a great one for movie night. I used Deedee's
What's Poppin' digi set to create this fantastic gift set.

Be sure to stop by the store and check out the new sets. Deedee has been busy!

Have a blessed weekend.

Isn't this the sweetest car?!!!! I'd get myself in trouble with a car like this, I have a lead foot already.

I've been on this masculine card kick the past couple of days and I had this image from Daisy Doodles for a while now. Finally got around to making something with it.
I've been to her store and Jules has some great new digis there.

Sentiment is from TLC Creations.

The design team got to play with this awesome cowboy set for this challenge. I don't know I think I have some hidden cowgirl tendencies in me. LOL!

For my sample I made this cute little cowboy themed set - card, treat holder and popcorn wrapper. I really had a lot of fun with this set.

So mosey on over to the challenge blog and load up. And if you have a moment stop by the store and take a look at the new items, plus check out the freebies.

Birthday Bear

Hello everyone. It's Monday, not my favorite day of the week...but it's here again. I got a lot done this past weekend, including my card for the Designed 2 Delight challenge. Usually I am getting this done right up against the deadline. It feels good not to be so rushed. LOL!

Here is my birthday card with the Birthday bear.

The challenge over at Card Ideas from Designed 2 Delight was Fabulous Folds. I had this great idea to do a criss-cross card. Um, somehow that didn't quite work out but I decided to go with what I had anyway. That decision created this very unique card opening. Here is how the card opens instead.

Hope you enjoy.

Prayer Changes Things

I told you on January 1st that I had been accepted for the InStyle Stamps Design Team. Today I post my first project for InStyle Stamps. I was really nervous because alot of their digi stamps are anime style images and I wasn't sure I could pull off coloring those. I have to say I really like how this project turned out.

It's ironic that the first image I got to work with is of a girl holding a bible. I know no one knew when they assigned me this image that I have a lot going on personally that has had me praying steadfastly. My father just had triple by-pass surgery and man did I ever pray. Being a Christian, I know that prayer changes things!

So for my project I altered a little notebook and created a prayer journal. I have so much to be prayerful for and thankful for this will help me keep track of things.

The image is called, Crystal and she can be found in the store, here. My papers are from DCWV. Sentiment by TLC Creations.

Well I'm off to get busy. There's a lot to do today.

A Valentine Tweet

Hello! Valentine's day is coming, have you started your cards? This is another of those holidays where I make the cards and forget to send them off. Yeah, I know, I'm horrible. I hate going to the post office, I really do. I've had the same stamps in my purse for the last 18 months. Thank goodness, they came up with the "Forever" stamp - LOL!

Here I've made a valentine's day card with an image from Deedee's digis called
Valentine Tweet.

I really like how this came out. I seem to be stuck on teal and pink for valentine's day. Have a great crafting weekend. I'm working on a few things.

Deedee's Lost Treasures

I was looking through my on-line album and realized I had some projects I had not shared on my blog yet. I love finding treasures. These next projects use images from Deedee's Digis.

I made this tissue box cover using the image called "Get Well Soon" This is one of Deedee's dollar digis so hurry up and grab it.

Challenge Entered:
GI - Anything Goes

With this one I was practicing my blending techniques. I finally found OMS and wanted to see if it would look any different than blending with baby oil. No, it doesn't look all that different to me. The image is called "Little Miracles".

Creative Belli - The letter"P"

I hope you enjoy my lost treasures.
