Under the Weather?

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I wanted to post this get well card I made for a dear friend who's feeling a bit under the weather. 

I used the FREEBIE image from Melanie over at Wink Wink Ink!  It was perfect for my card.  I used a pop up card for it and I think it's pretty cool.  :O)  I added some Liquid Glass for the little water droplets.  It quit raining and he's just shakin' off the excess!

Remember that Wink Wink Ink will be starting a monthly challenge on April 5th...the first Monday of the month.  There will be prizes awarded, so don't forget to play along with us!  Darlene has a special post up that lets YOU get in on the action...give us suggestions for upcoming challenges and if yours is used there could be something sweet just for you!!!

Lady {bug} Gaga!

***This is my 3rd post today...if you are looking for The Digi Shack Challenge, please scroll down once...Flutter By Wednesday, please scroll down twice.***

Last post for today highlights Inktegrity and our Hump Day Inspiration Sketch!  I used the cute Lady Bug Fairy for my card did most of the design team!  Too fun!  Joni's title on the Inktegrity blog was so cute, I snagged it for my own!  ;O)

Be sure to join us...anyone who plays along will receive a free Inktegrity image!  How cool is that???  We can't wait to see what you come up with!  :O)

Hello, You Cackling Hens!

***This my 2nd post today...if you're looking for Flutter By Wednesday, please scroll down!***

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaack!  This post is for The Digi Shack's Wednesday Challenge.  Toni challenged us to make any card that isn't an A2 size or square.  How easy is that???  I chose to make mine a #10 size, or business envelope.  These crazy chicks have been making me laugh since I saw them, so I decided to use them for my card today.  :O)

Aren't these guys too funny?  I hope you like it too!  Be sure to check out what my awesome teamies have made too...links are on my sidebar!

Miss You, Flutterby...

Good morning, crafty people and Happy Hump Day!  It's Wednesday and that means several posts for today!  First up is Flutter By Wednesday #102.  This week's challenge is an open one...all you have to do to play along is use a butterfly, fairy or angel on your project.  Simple!!!  I also entered this into the current Oh, Alice! Challenge...use a butterfly or caterpillar.

I made another layout for you today.  This is of my best friend, Thom, who passed away in February of last year from Lymphoma.  I miss him so much!  :O(  I thought butterflies were appropriate to symbolize his passing.  See those letters?  There are little tiny butterflies adorning them too.  I love you, Thom!

Be sure to check out my awesome teamies, including Brandi, our newest full time FBW DT sistah!  Welcome aboard, lovey!  Links are in my sidebar!  ;O)  Check back in a bit for The Digi Shack's Wacky Wednesday Challenge and Inktegrity's Sketch Challenge!  (I told you I was busy today!)

Got Horns?

No, not the kind of horns that say "I'm Evil", but the kind that say "I'm a Whimsical, Magical Creature!"  Happy Tuesday everyone! 

I wanted to share with you a card I made for one of my good friends.  Amanda is having yet another girl (this makes number 3), and her shower is coming up this weekend.  It is expected of me to make a cute card for the baby's book, so this is what I came up with.  I used the unicorn image called "Beauty" by Wink Wink Ink.  I paper pieced the unicorn...I love my striped unicorn!  ;O)  This digital stamp actually comes as a horse with the wings and the horn in separate files.  Talk about versatility!  Be sure to get over to the shop and pick this Beauty up for yourself!  While you're there look at the newest stamp called Little is darling!!!  Anyway, I hope she likes it...and I hope you do too!  :O)

Mr. Stinky Stinkerson & a Freebie!

Happy Monday everyone!  Did my post title get your attention?  My dear friend, Marlene, would be talking of farts if not sharts by now with a title like should stop by her blog and have a read.  She is a trip, for sure!!!  BWAHAHAHAHA! 

I wanted to share another layout with you today.  I used the adorable skunk and bear image from Wink Wink Ink, appropriately named Stinker for it...PERFECT!  It also comes with 3 sentiments to use.  These are pictures of my great nephew, Conan...and he IS too stinkin' cute!  :O)

Don't forget that today is Manic Monday Freebie Fun Day over at The Digi Shack!  Go grab your freebie before it's gone!

Hello everyone!  Happy Saturday!  Is everyone enjoying their first day of Spring?  Yes?  Well, me too!  We're celebrating with about 4 inches of snow and it's not done yet.  This is after we had 2 days of 60+ degree weather!  UGH!

Anywho...The Digi Shack has a fun challenge for you today!  Print your digital images off on DP and make a creation to share!  That's it!  Or paper piece if that makes more sense to you.  I made a layout of my son and our cutie patootie dog from last Easter.  You have to love a paisley rabbit, right?  :O)

I'm Sorry...Complete with Puppy Dog Eyes

Hello everyone and Happy Friday!  TGIF?  Yeah, my dear son has Spring Break all next week...not to mention they had off today and will have off Monday, March 22nd too!  Is it just me, or did any of you have a Spring Break like that?  We were lucky to get a couple of days off, let alone over a week!  Sheeesh!

Anywho, I wanted to share a fun card I made with my VERY FIRST Sassy Cheryl's digi.  This was so cute and I can see using it for many things.  :O)

TDS' Watercolor Wednesday

***2nd post today.  If you're looking for Flutter By Wednesday 100, please scroll down!***

Another post, another challenge!  I have a challenge for you issued by The Digi Shack.  Use any watercolor technique and link it up at TDS so we can see what you have made.  

This was something very different for me!  I didn't have any watercolors, watercolor paper, pencils or crayons.  I used regular card stock and my CTMH ink pads and an Aqua Painter to make my card.  It could have been worse.  LOL!  I'd love to see you play along.  :O)

Be sure to visit the rest of my teamies and show them some love...links are on my side bar!

Flutter By Wednesday #100!!!

Happy Hump Day all my fluttering friends!  Welcome to another installment of Flutter By Wednesday!  Today is Danni's ONE HUNDREDTH challenge!  Can you believe it??  Today is an open week, so all you need to do is use a butterfly, fairy or angel in your creation!  Let's get to fluttering!

I want to take a second and say that Danni is awesome to create for!  Definitely one of the sweetest women I have had the pleasure of getting to know through blogland!  Thank you Danni for your continued support and awesome inspiration!  Love you lady!

Since this was FBW's 100th challenge, the DT wanted to congratulate Danni on all her success by using butterflies, the original concept of the challenge, for our creations.  Our lovely teamie, Karen, found this adorable butterfly "bag" for us to try out.  I made a card to go with mine since I'm underwhelmed by my bag.  Harriet, another of my uber talented DT sisters, always created wonderfully simple cards with beautiful use of white space.  I was inspired to try my hand at it and this is what came of it.
Be sure to visit the rest of the design team to see what wonderful things they came up with!  Links are on my side bar!  :O)

You Naughty Kitty!

Hello friends!  Happy Tuesday to you all!  I wanted to share a card with you today that I made using one of Wink Wink Ink's digital images.  The name of this particular digi is called "Kitty Temptation."  Appropriate, eh?  I love the look on the kitty's face and the birdie is none the wiser.  :O)

I am pleased with the way this came out for sure!  The colors are my faves right now and they scream Spring to me.  We finally got all the snow and ice melted and the Christmas lights off the house this only took 3 days of 50 degrees to do it.  :O)  I got my first pedi of the year on Saturday with my Mom!

Anywho, I'd love to know what you think of my latest card!  And don't forget that Melanie has a new FREEBIE for you at Wink Wink Ink!'s for a limited time only!  While you're there I'm sure there will be another a few digital stamps that will fall into your cart.  :O)
