Time To Bloom

Hello.  I hope every one is enjoying the start of the weekend.  I was so ready to get off work today.  I am working my second job all weekend but I am still hoping for some down time.  I also want to spend some time in my flower bed.  It really needs some work done on it, but I have been having allergy problems so I haven't gotten around to it yet.

I decided to play with the progressive digital from From The Heart.  I really like it this month (I do most months.  lol) I did however shorten it.  I didn't want to image to take up the whole card.  It also had some great sentiments with it.

I am using it in the following challenges:
  Your Next Stamp - Sketch #38
   Crafty Hazelnut's - Anything Goes
   613 Ave Create - Anything Goes
   Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
   From The Heart - Progressive

Chat with all of you later.  Have a great weekend.

Cut It Up Challenges

Hello and Happy Friday.  I have been kind of quiet lately and I am determined to get back into the swing of things.  So I am starting today with a new challenge for Cut It Up.  It was a hard one for me but I did it.

The theme is Altered Books.  I don't make Altered Books so it was really hard for me to come up with something.  I kept it simple.  I used one of the monogram files on the Silhouette Online Store.  I added a ribbon down the side of the notebook and that was about it.

I can't wait to see what every one comes up with.   The sponsor this time around is As Cute As A Button.  The winner will get a gift code good for $20 of merchandise.

Have a great weekend.

Hello   I am trying to get ready for a short trip down South.  And that means, treat boxes.  I want to have 5 each for my husband, son and son's girlfriend.  Then I need to have some extras for the rest of the family.  My son's girlfriend is getting the cat box.  My husband will get the elephant one, of course.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   2 Crafty Gals - Anything Goes #16
   ABC Challenges - E is for Everything

Chat with you later.

Cat Box

Hello again.  Just one more quick one before I head out to run some errands.

I made this a couple of nights ago and I haven't taken the time to post it.  Every one that has seen it, thinks it is strange for the cat to be polka dot-ed but I think it is a cute little kitty cat.

I have several more in this series to make.  Hopefully tonight.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Crafty Creations - For the Girls (Cats are girly, right?)
   613 Ave Create - Anything Goes
   Artistic Inspiration - Anything Goes #153
   Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes #306

Have a great afternoon.  Hopefully I will be back later.

Give a Crafter a Cookie

Hello.  How is everyone doing on this cold Spring day?  I am ready for the Spring weather.  Too bad Mother Nature isn't cooperating.  We had freezing rain yesterday.  I guess it is better than the snow we had on Saturday and Sunday.

It is time for a new challenge over at Give a Crafter A Cookie.  I missed putting my card up on the site but here it is for everyone to see.  The challenge is sponsored by Kitty Bee Designs.

I decided to use a cupcake shaker card.  I haven't done a shaker card in a while and I needed some birthday cards so this was a good time to do both. 

The sprinkles in the shaker are from the Dollar Tree.  It was a small pack of multi sized pink beads.  Just perfect for shaker cards.  I used one of my BossKut die cuts for the happy birthday.  And of course, I used my fuse tool for the shaker pouch.

I hope to see you over at Give A Crafter A Cookie.

Cut It Up Challenges

Hello and Happy Friday.  I am late posting this.  My computer and Internet just would not do what I needed it to do.

It is time for another challenge at Cut It Up Challenges.  The challenge, this time, is April Fool's Day (you must include a joke or riddle.)  I don't really do humorous cards so I didn't really know what to do.  I ran across this multi-fold card with lots of candles and thought it would be good for my sister-in-laws' 51 birthday.  Man, does it have a lot of candles on it.  Each flame has three layers.  I didn't think I would ever finish.  I may add a 51 onto the front.  I haven't decided yet.

The challenge is sponsored by As Cute As A Button.  The winner will get a prize code worth $20.

 I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.   Have a great weekend.
