Love Is Spoken Here

Good morning, my awesome bleeps!  How is everyone this A.M.?  I'm popping in with a post for Can You Digi It?...it's time for our 2nd challenge.  Come on over and join us for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate!  This week's challenge is all about Fairy Land.  Use the following photo for your inspiration and link up in the next 2 weeks!

I used Retro Simply Woodland images from ReviDevi.  I layered up the butterfly to add some more dimension to my card.  I also added some Smooch to them to try to replicate the look of a butterfly's wings.  I hate to say that I didn't photograph the Smooch very well, but it is amazing in person.

Thanks so much for dropping by today guys!  Mwah!

Stock Spotlight Saturday at CYDI?!

Good morning everyone!  I'm here with a new weekly feature for Can You Digi It?.  Stock Spotlight Saturday or SSS.  This week we've got the spotlight on The Twinery Twine!  It is some fun stuff to play with too!  Oh, let's not mention the awesome spools that Michelle has to send the twine on!  Woohoo!

I used a TCP Studio stamp set along with my new Nesties for this card.  The Twinery colors I used were Lemondrop, Mandarin and Caribbean.  I love it!  I used my Prismacolor pencils to color the flowers on the craft card stock.

I hope you enjoyed my card!  Thanks so much for popping by today.  Be sure to join us for our current challenge too!  :O)

Good morning everyone!  I'm here today to share some news and the very first challenge for a brand spanking new company.  I am the DT Coordinator for Can You Digi It?!  How cool is that?  You have to read the sweet post that my boss lady, Michelle, wrote HERE.  One of my girlfriends asked me if I wrote it myself.  LOL!

I'm happy to post our VERY FIRST Challenge.  Every other Tuesday, the C.Y.D.I? Team will bring you a new inspiration to get those creative juices flowing.  Today, we will celebrate all things digital.  Use the following photos for your inspiration...Michelle happens to be an iPhone/Pad junkie.  ;O)

I don't like Apple, so no i-anythings at our house.  *GASP!  Yes, it's true...no  iPhone, iPad, iPod, iTunes...nada!  I like it that way and so does my hubs!  Now go on ahead and pick up your lower jaw.  I decided to make a layout on some SUH-WEET accessories that my awesome hubby got me for Christmas.  I do love my Kindle...it is amazing and I read SO much!  I used one of the tags from the set called Love Tags from LilyPink  Designs.  It comes in a set of 4 tags and all of them are colored with touches of red...I changed the color of mine to match my layout.  It's true that I'll "LOVE ALWAYS" my Kindle!  :O)

Thank you SO much for coming by today!  Please do stop by again tomorrow for the blog hop!!!  Mwah!

Good morning all!  I'm popping in this morning to share a card for the latest challenge over at Pike's Playground...Dustin Pike's Doodle Dragon Studios.  The current challenge is all about BIRTHDAYS!  Use any DDS image to make a birthday themed project and link up!  It's that easy!

I used this cute hippo hero for mine...what a cutie!  I also got to use my new set of Nesties that I got for Christmas....I know, I know.  I'm behind the times, right?  Everyone has this set already, but that's okay!  I have them now!  I colored my image (and the candy dots) with my trusty Copics, of course!

I do hope you'll join us for the challenge and check out the blog for more inspiration from the girls!

Hello, McFly?

Happy New Year!!!  Did anyone out there notice I was MIA...for over a month?  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a safe New Year celebration too!  It's a super busy time of year for my family and this year we had the pleasure of being down to one vehicle due to my accident with TWO deer.  We bought a new car the day after Christmas, so we're back to being a 2 car family again...SO much easier!  Here are some things you may have missed...

Our Family Photo Shoot:

My poor Grand Am post deer:
They totaled my baby, so we got a replacement...
Chevrolet Impala:


I haven't gotten around to downloading the pics from NYE yet.  Here's to a wonderful year for all of us!  Love you, bleeps!!!
