Hello Friend


So here is the last Digi of the Month Challenge for June. Yep, with only 5 hours left in the challenge I cut it pretty close!


I went straight to my scrap drawers and found all of this paper!! My husband was wonderful and colored this adorable image in photoshop for me!! I’m so blessed he supports my hobby.

Made it just in time with 5 HOURS to spare but here is my Digi of the Month creation over at Imagine That…digis by Kris.

Sweet Day

Even though I am usually one of the last to enter it wasn’t totally my fault this month!! :) My computer died in the middle of the month. Then last week when I was trying to get stuff ready to go to the annual scrapbook retreat my printer started dying and wouldn’t print correctly. Apparently I print too much and wore down the print head! So hooked up my new printer last night just in time to get this challenge done.

I went pretty CAS on this card which is not my comfort zone but I like the design from SHEL9999 card at Scrapbook.com that is the “Lift card” for the July Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com.

The patterned paper was from my scrap drawer and I can’t remember whose it is…but I’m thinking it was from Hobby Lobby but I’m not positive.

Merry & Bright

Today I’m playing along at Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge which is Merry & Bright (however you want to interpret that!)

Merry & Bright

Not only is the image called Merry & Bright from Deedee’s Digis but the penguin is wearing light bulbs that are bright!

I found this clean and simple sketch on Skipping Stones Designs and thought it would work perfect for brads to mimic the lights in the image.

Hopping along with House of Cards!


It is the end of the third term over at House of Cards so they are having a “goodbye” and “welcome” new team members Blog Hop till the 15th with a bunch of prizes. Someone somewhere during the hop will win a $25.00 gift code to Deedee’s Digis just for playing along. How it work is you go to the blog (click here) and visit each team member that is listed in the post. Then make a card based on the following inspirational photo and link it up to the challenge.


Thank You So Much

This card took on a life of it’s own when I ended up combining 3 main challenges. So I looked at the inspirational photo and the flower in the frame keep drawing my attention so I decided to go with that. I found the flower in the Stitchy Fall set that I thought would work perfectly. In trying to figure out what color scheme I wanted to go with I saw the color challenge at ColouQ and started going that direction (I missed the deadline but that’s okay still got a cute card from it!) Then I remembered seeing a sketch at Feeling Sketchy that had a square with circles and thought that would go with how the flower looked in the photo above. So this is what I came up with when I mixed all that together. The only thing I think might have looked better is I mounted this on a black card base instead of just leaving it the blue but I still like it!
