Hello.  And welcome to another weekend.  I hope every one gets a chance to relax and at least enjoy part of the weekend.

If you are a regular on my site, you know I don't use a lot of purple.  It just isn't one of my go to colors.  A couple of sites have yellow and purple challenges so I decided to see what I could come up with.  It is more yellow than purple but it is there.

The flower jar is a Bugaboo digital and the Birthday Wishes sentiment is My Craft Spot (closed now).  I added some Winks of Stella to the flower that I popped out.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Sugar Pea - Mix It Up #11
   Cupcake Inspiration - Purple, White & Honey
   Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch #366
   Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes #124
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
   MHK Designs - Purple & Yellow

Off to vacuum before I get ready for work.  Chat with you tonight hopefully.

Favorite Thing Ever

Hello.  When I think Summer, I think ice cream, but really I can eat ice cream year 'round.

This little cutie from Bugaboo is one of my favorites.  Something about her.....The filagree stripe is a Spellbinder border.  I had to cut out part of the middle to get it to fix on the card. You can't see it but I also added Winks of Stella on the ice cream and the little heart.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Catch The Bug - Bingo
   Dream Valley - Pretty In Pink
   Hiding In My Craft Room -  Yummy
   Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes #326
   Freshly Made Sketches - Sketch #251

Off to clean my craft table.  Have a great night.

Give A Crafter A Cookie

Hello and Happy Thursday. 

It is time for another Give A Crafter A Cookie challenge.  It is hard to believe it has been two weeks already.  This one is going to be a great one.

It is sponsored by Fred, She Said Designs and Kitty Bee.  I can't wait to see what every one comes up with.  This will be so much fun.

I went with a design from Fred, She Said.  Isn't this puppy so cute. 

I kept the card pretty simple and added paw prints on the background square.  I thought the flowers in the pink stripe with with the flower the puppy was holding.

Make sure you come over to Give a Crafter A Cookie and enter the challenge this week.

August 3rd

Hello.  It is actually August 3rd but I don't want to post this card until after my sister's birthday so you aren't seeing it until August 23rd.  Happy Birthday Connie.  I hope you like your card.  It was real hard to keep it a secret.

It took me hours to get this file together.  It came in a mega bundle from Paper Creators.  (I can't find the exact file in their shop.)  Their files come as jpgs so you have to trace then and then cut them.  But I could get a clean trace so it took forever to clean up the files.  I think I did pretty good.  I really want to figure out how to make a generic one so I can add what ever theme I want.  Some thing to work on, I guess.


Chat with all you later.

Black and White

Hello.  I really thought I would be here sooner than this.  Oh well.  Things happen.

A really quick one.  When I saw the black and white challenge at City Crafter's, I knew I wanted to make this card.  I saw it over a year ago on Pinterest and I just love how simple it was.  You can't see it on the picture but the butterfly is textured.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   City Crafter - Black and White
   Love To Scrap - Anything Goes
   Crafty Hazelnuts - Anything Goes

Chat with you later.

Quick and Easy

Hello and Happy Monday.  I am off to day and I so looking forward to some play time this afternoon.  I have to straighten the kitchen and then mop it.  Hopefully it won't take long and I will have time to play before I cook dinner.

I am still playing around with my Distress inks and the blending of colors.  I promise I will get off of it soon.  I still need to show my sister how to do it.  Hopefully tonight.   My digital was a little bit for this one but it looks ok.  I think the image is from Little Miss Muffet.  I have another idea for it so you will see it again over the next few weeks.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Freshly Made Sketches - Sketch #250
   Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes #99
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
   Paper Creators Craft - Keep It Simple
   Little Miss Muffet - Anything Goes

Off to the kitchen.  Chat later.

Color Blending

Hello again.  I have another color blending card for you.  I even went looking for the link.  It is a Craftsy.  And it is even on sale right now.  I caught it several months ago and I went through the first lesson and made notes.  The previous car is the results of the notes. 
class over at

This is the second lesson.  In the lesson, she put the stamped image in the middle of the card.  I decided to put mine at one of the bottom corners with a sentiment at the top.  I think shades of blue would pretty with some snowflakes.  I will have to remember this for this winter.

The bird is a Bugaboo digital stamp.  She is kind of springy, but I wanted to use her with the bright colors. 

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
   Through The Purple Haze - Anything Goes #106
   Simon Says Wednesday - Make For The Border
   Craft Rocket - Things With Wings

I am off to clean the kitchen and then read a while.  Chat with you tomorrow hopefully.
