Back to School...

Which is exactly where I have been the past couple of weeks! I LOVE summer break, but have to admit I was getting bored. NOW I can't wait for Christmas break...LOL!
I have been doing a lot of "working" at making cards the past couple weeks, but haven't actually gotten one DONE 'til today! This one was made for the Sketch Saturday Challenge. The other night, my friend Cindy and I bought a few new Digi's, so this one was PERFECT for all the Back To School challenges out there this week , too! These would include : Fussy & Fancy, Stamp Something, and Paper Pretties.
I hope you have a great week...back to school again tomorrow...
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thinking Of You...

This was originally going to be a sketch challenge, BUT ended up just being a card for a friend. I love the DP from My Mind's Eye, so the card was kinda built around it. The greyish-blue is such a gorgeous color....I have noticed several of my cards recently are blue. Guess I need to break out another color family...LOL!
My friend Cindy told me this card qualifies for a couple of challenges this week, which are BOTH Tree-mendous! Those would be the challenges at Cute Card Thursday and Daring Cardmakers. Please stop by and check them both out!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I start back to work tomorrow....yes, summer is offically over when the kid's and lunch ladies go back to school...LOL! Have a FABBY week, and see you SOON!

Get Well Sweetie

I saw the sketch at Sweet Sunday Sketch, I had to do one! I had Miss Tilda already colored, and wanted to use her. I went with cute and simple, and it just seemed to work. This is just done with layers and the good ol' Cuttlebug! I dunno if I moved when I took this picture, but the card isn't warped as it appears.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I will be back soon with more....

Pink for Us Girls

HAPPY MONDAY!! This is my last week of Summer...we go back to school next week! Well, my dear friend, Cindy, is at it out the challenges. Yesterday she chose this great sketch from Just Us Girls. Little did she know, I already had it on my list of things to do.... This is a super versatile sketch, and I have another card in the works using it!
I wish you could see it more clearly, but this entire card is sprayed with Shimmer Mist. We are a bit overcast today ( even though the predict 101 degrees) so the shimmer isn't especially noticeable. Don't ya just love non-traditional colored Christmas cards...I do! Anyway, I hope everyone has a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!

Time for School!

I had this sweet little Anya all ready to be used, so when I saw the 411 Sketch Challenge this week, I KNEW what I was going to do with her! We start school around here in a little over a week, so perfect timing, eh? I love this sketch, and the simplicity of this card...Love when that happens. This card also falls into a few other challenges that are open this week.

Some Monday Mojo

Yup, I am back again today...GASP! I am truly trying to get back into blogging on a regular basis, because I really DO love it!
This little ditty is my submission for today's Mojo Monday Challenge. I really enjoyed this one...and I can't believe I didn't stamp AT ALL!!
This is done all with DP from the DCWV Linen Closet Stack. I wanted to use the flowers in the 3rd layer SO BAD, but was having trouble finding a stamped image I liked with it, so I punched a circle from it and made it the focal point! It is hard to see in the picture, but the large flower and leaves are popped up for a little 3D look.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you again, tomorrow~

Ooh La La - Birthday Card
The Crazy Challenge - Birthday Card

Well, I am off to the craft table, so I hope everyone has a great Sunday! Thank you for stopping by...
