I actually had a little time to myself this week and took full advantage of it! I made some cards! I have a habit of getting up every morning, going to the PC, browsing through a whole bunch of challenge sites, and writing down all the challenges! But even though I have every intention of getting to these said challenges, they sit on my desk and another week goes by without me doing one of them! Well not this week! I made sure to tackle some of them!!!

So here are my cards!

The first one, I have been drooling over all the cards on the net that have been coloured on Kraft card stock. I love the effect! So I had to give it a try. I think I need a little more practice. The colours really do work differently on Kraft!

Here is a close up of the image.

Challenges entered for this card are:
Brown Sugar: Occupation ( not really sure if this qualifies, but they are cooking up a Cherry Pie! LOL)

My second card is one for my Christmas stash! I figured I had better get going on that! Christmas has a tendency to creep on me!

Challenges entered for this card:
Winter Wonderland: Red and Green
Diva's by Design:Anything Goes
Whimsy:Lots of Layers
Cute card Thursday: Bling (her coat and hat)

Birthday Bugs

Good morning everyone! Hard to believe that in only two more weeks the kids will be going back to school. Honestly I can't wait! My two have after each other 24/7, and driving me nuts!!! LOL!

Well this week at Fab'n'Funky we have a wonderful challenge for you. This week we are asking you to use Leaves somewhere on your creation. We were very lucky to be able to play with some of the stamps from our sponsor this. I love the Bugaboo stamps. They are so fun to play with. This week I got to play with Scene-it Ladybug Birthday.

Here is my card.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you can join us in the challenge. Don't forget to stop by and show us what you have made. You could even a prize!

Just a quick little post today! With the Olympics going on I have found myself glued to the TV, my kids have been forced to fend for themselves while I was captivated by all those amazing athletes. Have you been watching?

Well with me being glued to the TV, it seems that I was late in getting some of my others duties done (besides feeding the kids..... thank goodness they are old enough to sort of take care of themselves. LOL)

So here is what I have made for the new challenge over at Fab'n'Funky. We were asked to use some Rhinestones or Pearls on our project this week.

I have this rhinestone title for years, and have been wanting to use it on something, but kept putting it aside. Well this week I pulled it out, coloured it to match my card with my Copics and voila! The image is from Magnolia and made it in 3D.
Hope you can stop by take part in the challenge this week.  Have a great day!

Anything but a card!

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great summer so far! I personally can't wait for it to end so that I may go back to work!!! LOL! Sick I know!

Well this week over at Fab'n'Funky we have a fun challenge for you. "Anything but a card". This week we have a wonderful new sponsor joining us as well! 
who are stamp manufacturers based in New Zealand. 
they are offering a fantastic prize of a $20 voucher to spend in store- with free shipping!! 

They were nice enough to send us some stamps to play with. Knowing that my daughters birthday is coming up and that her favorite dog is a shepherd, I just had to chose the following stamp for her. Here is the tag that I made, I plan on using it on her gift.

Well that is all for today, hope you will join us this week! I can't wait to see what you make!
