Happy Thursday

Hello.  I have to keep saying it is Thursday, because it really feels like a Friday.  Don't ask me why.  But I really want it to be Friday.  However, I do have to work tomorrow.  Sarah, remember that.  No, sleeping late tomorrow.

I am in a flower mood.  I warned you that there would be more flowers.  I found this new company (to me at least) that has some great digital flowers.  Power Poppy.  I picked out several I want.  I limited myself to two.  But once I have used them, I will be going back for more.  I found a sunflower vase that I will definitely be picking up.  They also have clear stamps, but I just love the digitals because I can sizing to what ever size will work at the time. 

It is hard to notice from the picture but the  small flower, I popped with some foam tape.

I am using this card in the following challenges:
   Crafty Gals - Add Flowers
   Penny's Challenges - Anything Goes #329
   Crafty Calendar - Flowers
   Wednesday's Inspiration - Anything Goes #275
   Your Next Stamp - Sketch #64

Chat with you later.  Have a great afternoon.

Masculine Card

Hello again.  Another quick one and then I am off to make dinner. 

I needed a couple of masculine birthday cards.  This is the first one that came to mind.  I just love how it came together.  All three colored strips are embossed with different folders.







I am using it in the following challenges:
   Brown Sugar Challenges - Embossing
   Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

Well, off to work on dinner.  Hopefully, I will see you after dinner.

Spring Time & Flowers

Hello.  I thought I would get a card in early this afternoon and maybe that will mean I have time to make a bout card later tonight.

With all of the Spring / Summer weather (it was 85 today), I have been in the mood to make flower cards.  I have several images, I want to color so I am sure you will be seeing a bunch over the next few days.

This rose stamp is one of my favorites.  I pull it out on a regularly basis.  I haven't glittered it lately so I may have to try that soon. 

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Just Add Ink - Flowers
   Simon Says Wednesday - Get Dotty
   Give A Crafter A Cookie - April Showers & May Flowers
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes w/2 Patterns

Chat with you later.

Babies

Hello.  How is everyone doing today?  I was just so tired today, so I just have a quick card for you tonight.
  






It seems all of son's friends have been out of school and on their own long enough that they are all ready to start families.  So I have been making baby cards.  I made this one in pink and blue.

I am using this card in the following challenges:
   City Crafters - Arrivals
   Digital Delights - Anything Goes
   Crafty Creations - Anything Goes

Well off to see what I can come up with next.

Shaker Card

Hello.  Happy Mother's Day to all of the Mothers out there.  I hope you have had a fantastic day.

I finally took some time to play on the computer.  I have made a couple of cards recently but I haven't taken the time to post.  Sorry about that.  I will try once again to do better.

I love making shaker cards.  I have seen several lately and it has got me thinking about all the ways I can make them.  Plus Queen & Co has several dies that I want to make shaker cards with.  So you will probably be seeing more over the summer months.

I used my standard heart dies on this one. 

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Catch The Bug - Shaker Card
   CAS-ual Friday - Birthday + 6 things (sequins)
   Simon Says Monday - Frame It (the shaker is framed)
   Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes #127
   CAS on Sunday - Shaker Card

Off to work on something before dinner.  Chat with you later hopefully.
