Sunday Challenges...

Hi everyone. Hope your having a great Sunday. I'm playing in my craft room a little bit. I wanted to join this weeks challenge over at Lil Lolita Boutique and Friday Sketchers. This weeks challenge over at Lil Lolita Boutique is "Pink, Purple & Cream". So of course I choose to color up my new 80's Sookie image. Even though she is the prize this week. Isn't she great? Love that outfit!! And of course I had to add a bunch of stickles. She just seemed to need to glitter a bunch. The cute sentiment is another one I found over at TLC. She as awesome sentiments!

Here's are little Adikia. Look how much she has grown.. Yep she's chewing a stick she found. It will probably end up in her bed along with a bunch of other stuff. It's amazing what she brings in the house. She's driving the two older dogs crazy with all that puppy energy she has... They are getting a break today. Emily has taken her for a walk around town and who know's where else. So we are enjoying the peace and quiet while it lasts. Because she'll be back to terrorize us soon....

Happy crafting. Thank for stopping by!!

Fabulous Saturday....

Don't you just love the weekend? Mostly I love not really having to do anything. The thought of spending the whole day in my PJ's if I want to or not. Watching TV all day.. Coloring.. Playing with the puppy.. (who by the way thinks 6 is sleeping in). Just doing nothing if thats what you feel like. I love it!!

On to the card. One of the new Magnolia's I picked up called Tilda with Three Flowers. Isn't she adorable? This is for an upcoming class next month at my local scrapbook store Memories of Time. Love that place. But I have to stay away as much as possible, I didn't win the lottery.. :o)

The paper is Creative Imaginations. I left the store with only 2 pieces of CS and 2 pieces of PP. That's it.. But when I got home I was like what was I thinking how can I create a card with only that little bit. I wasn't too excited about my choices anymore. The green wasn't really growing on me. But alas that's what I had so I forged on... And I love it. It turned out really cute I think. Even the green.

So I've decided I can't stay in my PJ's all day so I have to get off the computer now.. Blog hopping later...
Hope your having a fabulous day!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog # 21....

Hey you made it to Tuesday. Fabulous!! How about a new challenge over at the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog?  We have a fabulous challenge for you this week called "Cut it Out". So I dug out some snowflake punches to use. What do you think about this cute image? It's called "Creating Santa's List". I can just picture him sitting at his desk in the middle of the night in his PJ's checking his list. Santa doesn't wear red all the time right? Well he's not today. I wanted him to wear blue..

I had to go dig out that Christmas paper. I didn't have that in my pile.. The adorable sentiment is another I found over at Elegant WordArt2.  Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Fabulous Monday...

Ok who am I kidding I hate Monday's... Going back to work and all. YUCK!! If I could just win the lottery or something I'd be some what happy I'm sure. But then I'd need a whole other house to keep all the stamping stuff in I'd be buying all the time. So I guess I'll stick with Yucky Monday...

Have you seen the Kenny K's Krafty Girlz? If not you really should they are fabulous. Very sassy and fun! I thought I'd try out this week's challenge which is a sketch. My image this time is Drama Queen. Isn't she cute? She's just talking away on her cell phone like she has nothing else to do. I can just hear her saying "Hey girlfriend you want to go shopping? I got my man's credit card!"  Can't you see it too?

The sentiment is another cutie I found over at Elegant WordArt2.  Some of the paper is what I had left over from yesterdays card. I'm trying to be better about using it more then once. Maybe the pile won't get so big this time.. But I doubt it.. :) I can't help it I love paper!!

Hope you have a great Monday and don't work too hard...

Lazy Sunday....

Hey everyone hope your having a great weekend. Getting some crafting done maybe. I've managed to do a couple of challenges and my DT card for Sassy Cheryl. So I'm feeling pretty good. Have you done anything fun?
I should probably been outside doing something today, but just couldn't manage that much effort. I watched The Closer all morning while I colored some images. Pretty much wasted the early afternoon doing nothing.. LOVE IT!!

Well on to my card. I made this one for the the Lil Lolita Boutique Challenges and I used this weeks Friday Sketchers challenge. The challenge over at Lil Lolita this week is a photo challenge of these super cute pink , black & white shoes. They don't look that comfortable , but man if I saw those at the store they would be going home with me. Super cute!! And of course Friday Sketchers have there awesome sketch. There is also a $10 gift certificate to the Digi Doodle store. Now for my card...

My image this week is Evie. Isn't she cute? And the adorable sentiment I found over at Elegant WordArt2. Bethany has fabulous saying. I'll be going over there again soon. I love blog hopping and finding wonderful new things. I'm off to play and relax, before dreaded work tomorrow...

Lil Lolita Lylah....

How about another Lil Lolita image from Tickled Pink Stamps. I think they are totally adorable. This one is called Lylah. I actually had a little time to color this week and wanted to join some a couple of challenges. Those are always fun and you can pick which ever one you want. I love that idea. I think you could probably find a new challenge every day if you looked. I don't have that much time. I'd rather be coloring!!

I going to enter this one in the Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge which is "Ribbon" and Friday Sketchers. The prize this week over at Lil Lolita Boutique is 3 Lil Lolita stamps (new ones even) and the prize over at Friday Sketchers is any 3 unmounted stamps from the Motivet store (awesome).

Kenny K First Challenge..

I know you've probably seen the new Kenny K images. Aren't they fabulous? I love how spunky they are. If you head over to Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenges you can join in on the very first challenge. For the first challenge it is all about "Pastels". Lucky for me I already had this cutie already colored up in pink. So thought I'd join in too. The  image is called Troublemaker. Looks like she could get into some trouble that's for sure. They also have a couple previews of the next release, WOW I can't wait to get those!! The boy ones are awesome, but I really Love the spunky girls. And ok I'm not a sports fan... But I may still need to pick up a couple anyways. The cute sentiment is from TLC. They have fabulous sentiments!!

 I spent Sunday Morning cleaning off my counter of scraps. I have a laundry basket with folders in it by color that I keep scraps in. I finally got tired of looking at that huge pile. It look much better in the folders. It's still huge but at least it's put away. After all that I went and searched the basket for scraps to use on this card. How crazy is that? Didn't want to use them when they were on the counter, but hey if there put away there even better... :o)

Kraftin Kimmie Beach Album...

Check out the Beach Album I made using my Kraftin Kimmie stamps. This first image is Eleanor. Isn't she a baby?

Then we have my husband Mike sticking his tongue out. This is a normal occurrence for him during having his picture taken.

Now we have image Mae. Love her hat!! And my daughter Emily braving a rock. The turtles and beach ball are Spellbinder dies called Surf's Up and From the Sea. I love that you can use them like stencils. Really cool.

It wouldn't be complete with out a picture of Emily with her tongue out... I have distressed all the paper edges with Ranger Distressing Ink Vintage Photo and Walnut stain. The image is Florence. Another cutie. Love her suit..

Last but not least we have Jack. Don't you love his hair cut? Looks like his mom put a bowl on his head and that swim suit. Wish some of the guys (girls too) would have been wearing those when we went to Mexico a couple of years ago.. :o) For the words I used an old Sizzix alphabet set called Boxed Brush. I haven't gotten those out in forever. I still love them.

I'm off to check some challenges.. So I have some stuff to post this week... Have a fabulous day.. Thanks for stopping by!!

Did you see the fabulous sketch they have over at Friday Sketcher's this week? Love it and they have a surprise for a prize, nut I'm sure it will be awesome too. The DT have out done themselves with their wonderful coloring. I couldn't resist coloring up another Kenny K image. I know I've already colored this one, but isn't she adorable? There is also a whole new release with mostly guys. Sport's theme this time. Way cool!! They will be having there own challenge starting this Sunday the 11th.

I'm off to work on a beach album I'm making with the Kraftin Kimmie stamps using the Moonlight Whispers images. I'll share it when I get it finished. Hope your having a great day. thanks for stopping by!!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog # 19....

Hey everyone it's time for this week's challenge over at the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog. And guess what I'm the host this week.So for this week's challenge I have chosen to do a sketch. Nothing to complicated... Hope you'll find some time to join us!!

I have used one of the super cute new images from a couple of week's ago called Yankee Doodles Ride. Isn't he great? I knew as soon as I seen him I'd have to color him up. Then I found the perfect sentiment. I got it over at Raindrop Echo Designs. I thought it went perfectly. Believe it or not the last class I did had a bunch of kits left over so I've been trying to use all those scraps up instead of adding them to my huge pile. So that's were all the paper came from I didn't even have to cut anything out, but the sentiment. Super cool!!

Happy Monday..

Happy Monday everybody!! I'm happily enjoying an extra day off from work today. LOVE THAT!! I'm definitely ready for a vacation. But since hubby is currently unemployed I don't see that happening any time soon. So I'll take the extra day off for now.

Thought I'd pop in and share the card I whipped up yesterday before leaving to watch fireworks in Roseburg. Very nice display and we didn't have to freeze to death like we usually do in Bandon or deal with the fog. We'll probably go there again next year. For me card today I have used one of my Stampavie stamps by Sarah Kay called Isabelle with Puppy Coco. I can honestly say that if I had to sell some stamps these wouldn't be on the list. I love them. They are so cute.

With our new puppy Adikia running around the house I've found it rather difficult to get any real crafting time in. She is very needy. I forgot how that works. Wanting constant attention and loving. Pick me up, play in the yard, I'm tired snuggle with me... I don't want to sleep by myself. Although she only has to get up once in the middle of the night to go outside, now to get her to sleep past 6:30 on the weekend. As I sit in my chair typing this she is sleep in the back of the chair while hang on the edge.. Now where is Emily who brought her home? Who knows off camping with friends... the turd!! I guess she's our puppy now.. Good thing we love her.. :o)

Hope your all having a fabulous day!! See you tomorrow for the Sassy Cheryl Challenge...
