Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog # 35....

Well my lack of inspiration is still with me as you can tell from my poor card. I couldn't even pick out an image that required a bunch of coloring. I just wanted to get it over with. How TERRIBLE is that. I even went so far as to purchase one of Cheryl's super cute colored images and was going to use that, but I just didn't like how that turned out either.

Hopefully you will do a better job with this week's challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog then I have done. This week's challenge is "Anything But A Square". The other DT have come up with some really cute inspiration for you in lots of different shapes. I'm going to work on my Mo Jo..

Oh by the way today is Sassy Cheryl's BIRTHDAY.. I'm sure she's turning 21!!  Happy Birthday Cheryl!! Hope you get lots of fun stuff..

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you at the challenge..

My Oh My...

Where has the whole week and weekend gone? I seem to be in a rut. I've lost my crafting mo jo. I haven't colored anything in two whole weeks. How terrible. I'm hoping to pop back soon.

I spent Saturday taking a class using Tim Holtz edge dies. Really fun. I just have to add a bunch of embellishments. Then I can take it to MOT to sell. I'm not much of a scrapbooker anymore so I'd rather have someone else buy it and use it.

Have you seen all the cute new Martha Stewart Christmas punches? WOW!! They were in my A Cherry on Top newletter. Let just say oh my gosh!! I had to have some. Maybe when the box arrives that will kick start my mo jo...

I did find this cutie I had already colored and thought I better use her up before Halloween is over. I love that owl. Glad I purchase him.

Try and have a great Monday!! It's the start of a whole new work week... Thanks for stopping by!!

Tim Holtz Die..

Check out the new Tim Holtz die I picked up Saturday. What a scary tree.. I can see that being the back ground on a bunch of cards. Maybe add some leaves.. For now it's just scary with bats hanging out in it. I have again used one of my Halloween Magnolia images Witch Tilda and Pumpkins. I think she is adorable.

Well better get ready for work. Yippie I can hardly wait. Hope your having a fabulous day. Thanks for stopping by..

Happy Saturday...

Thanks everyone for your comments on my lose. I'm feeling better today. I know he's in a better place and living it up.

Halloween is almost here. I've been working on a few more.Like this fabulous image from Mo's Digital Pencil. Love her stuff!! This was an image from last year but I still love it!!

How about another Hanglar.. Isn't he adorable?

I'm off to teach water coloring today at my local scrapbook store MOT. That should be fun!! I had to get up early to cut out kits this morning. I hadn't done it yet with everything going on. I'm going to have to color some more images tonight while I watch T.V. I haven't done that all week. But it's time to get back into the swing of things.

Hope you have a fabulous day.. I'm going too..

God's Little Angel Cupid...

God send's us little angels to look after us and protect us. They keep us company and give us love no matter what. They don't hold grudges and just let you vent. Mine was a great foot warmer and cuddle buddy. He could play ball all day. He was a great companion and he'll be greatly missed. My heart is broken, but I know he's in the big play ground in the sky having a blast. Cupid I love and miss you... 10-13-2010

A Pile of Penguins Card # 14...

Well I did it. I made up a card with all 14 images. I'm so impressed with myself. I need to challenge myself to things like this more often. I know I'm not the only one who shops and buys all this great stuff then gets it home and I don't know what happens but it doesn't get used. I love it but I need more time in my day.

Thanks everyone for playing...
Last weeks winner of the blog candy is: Cheryl over at God and I On The Railroadtracks. Congrats Cheryl. Email me your info and I'll drop that in the mail for you.

Hope you've enjoyed my personal challenge. Stay tuned for something new. I ordered the new Sugar Nellie images. So I'll be sharing those soon. Along with more Christmas cards.. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!!

Snowy & Rudolf Card # 13...

Happy Sunday everyone. Sorry I've been MIA this week it's been very busy at work. I been getting home and crashing on the couch to watch T.V. then off to bed. Boring!! I haven't even picked up my Copic's all week. How sad.. I did have a fabulous class at MOT yesterday. Got to color then. Very fun!!

So I've made it to card # 13. This should be my last one but I ended up picking up one more. I couldn't resist they are so cute... I've colored it with my Copic's and the sentiment is from TLC. The gorgeous paper is the new Bo Bunny. Very pretty!

I'm going to be doing a Christmas card workshop next month and will now have to decide which 3 cards too use. Recolor them so I can write down the Copic's I used. That's what I get for not writing them down when I'm doing them..

Hope your having a fabulous day.. Enjoying some rest. I'm off to do my DT card for Sassy Cheryl Tuesday..
Man I'm so far behide..

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog # 32....

Hey everyone it's time for this week's challenge over at the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog. This week's challenge is "Paper Piecing". Fun right? I grabbed a few scraps out of my scrap bag and ran them though my printer and Ta Da... I  didn't want to cut out the buttons on the front of his outfit so I gave him some pearls. I need some more practice though. I get to cutting it out and I find I could have left some of the paper on.

My image this week is Wizard Bear. I wanted my image to have some paper piecing but not a bunch.

Hope you'll join us this week. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!!
