Hexagons at Hambo Stamps

Hello.  It's time for the weekly Hambo Hoedown.  This week we were asked to create using Hexagons.  I have no paper with hexagons on it so I googled the shape and made a shaped card instead.   I used Nut Party as my image.

 Take care.

Paper Pretties Monday - Use Bling!

Good morning.  It's Paper Pretties Monday and that means a new challenge.  This week we want to see some bling!   Yeah, bling it up!  

This week I used Sweet Treat for my sample.  I created a gift for my daughter.  I rolled the socks and stuck a plastic spoon in the middle so it looks like ice cream.  The bowl came from the dollar store, wrapped everything and attached an adorable tag to the whole package.  Take a look.

Please stop by the blog and see what the other DT members created and then link your projects.

Take care.

It's Thursday....

It's Thursday and you know what that means?  It's time for a new challenge at Delightful Challenges!

This week we challenge you to use stitching on your projects, real or faux.
I have used Cupcake Timmy on my card.  Isn't he sweet? 

I happened to be sewing on some girl scout badges for my daughter and I used real machine stitching on this card.  It doesn't happen often, I know.

Ok, I hope you will join us this week.  Hop over to the challenge blog to see what the other ladies created for you.

Take care.

Color Challenge at JDE

Good Morning and welcome to another weekly challenge at Jackson's Digital Expressions.  This week we have a color challenge and these colors are Beautiful together.  We want to see Teal, Brown and Orange on your projects.  If you head over to the JDE blog, there is a photo for your inspiration. 

Here's My sample using a Robert Jackson image called, It's Like Poetry.

The sentiment is from Ginger's House and it was perfect for this image.  I love it.  We have a sponsor this week and that is Bugaboo Stamps.  I made the Breast Cancer Awareness card using a Bugaboo image, called some support - save the tatas.

I hope I have inspired you to jump over and join the challenge.  Take care.

Who Loves Candy Corn?

I know there are a lot of people out there who adore candy corn.  I have to admit that I am not one of them...unless he looks like Mr. Corn from Fresh Brewed Designs.  The sentiment is from TLC Creations.

I colored and glittered up this little cutie and then had the bright idea to make a shaped card.

As you can see from the little package of goodies, this is a Tootsie Roll household.  Sorry Mr. Corn.

Take care.
