A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #23

This challenge was to add sparkle or bling. I think I accomplished the sparkle requirement! This card is simple yet elegant and looks much better in real life! Thanks for looking!

House Mouse Challenge #11

I didn't have any natural fibers or anything so I tried to stick with natural/neutral colors as best I could without making it too boring. Enjoy!

EEK! Spiders!

Scraplifted these from cookiebaker on SplitCoastStampers. When I saw them I thought they were just so cute and the mission was on! I can't wait to give them to my friends four-year-old for his preschool Halloween party. Thanks cookiebaker for sharing your cute little spiders!

Carmen from CarmensCreativeChatter sent me my first Blog Award! How exciting to know that someone out there in the world thinks that I'm INSPIRATIONAL! Thanks Carmen!

I'm suppose to pass this award on to six other bloggers that inspire me. At the moment, I'm getting ready for a crop so please keep your eye open for my six choices later on this weekend.

House Mouse Challenge #22

Anything BUT a Card Challenge! I am in a SWAP with my Yahoo Group, Scrappin' In Toledo, and we're making a 12 month
calendar. Each participant of the SWAP is responsible for doing three 8x8 layouts for different months. My months are April, July and December. This is what I've come up with so far for my July layout. Not sure if this is the finished product or if I'll change my mind before it's due

You can see April's layout on my October 8th blog post!

Stamp with Stampavie Challenge #14

Hmmm...I'm not exactly sure what my thoughts are on this card. I love the color combination and I even like how the coloring turned out on the image BUT, I'm just not so sure about the rest of the card. It seems as if it still needs something. What do you think?

April Calendar Layout...

I'm in a SWAP where each participant has to make an 8x8 layout for a calendar. The month I chose is April. I didn't really want to do an Easter layout for a couple of reasons...1. I don't have any stamps large enough that would look right on such a large page 2. I tried coloring an image of a rabbit lying in a bed of flowers and let me tell you...it looked absolutely RIDICULOUS! 3. It's not a guarantee that the person receiving the calendar will use it next year and what if Easter isn't in April during the year they decide to use it for? AND... 4. I just wasn't feelin' it! So...after sitting here for a couple of hours looking at my stamps and supplies here's what I finally came up with...

I can't believe that the holidays are almost here!

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! Spending time with family and friends, the changing colors, cool weather and SHOPPING, of course!

A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge #19

Well, I know it doesn't follow the sketch perfectly but I thought it was a great idea to make a moon out of the round shape that was in the sketch! I think it worked out pretty well. Thanks for taking a peek!
