How is everyone? I am great it is Friday the kids are home and I get to play, not work! 
So the first thing I made today was with a  digi image from The Stamping Boutique : called Jade.
I did a little challenge over at The Latte Lounge.  You were to use Pink, teal and black. I just realized that the only black in in the image...Ops! I was so excited to be crafting on a Friday morning, I forgot to pay attention to the details!  Oh well, I guess is still fits. LOL!
for my papers I used the DP from Dasiyd's not sure of the name the rest is SU with which I embosses with both wet and dry embossing. 
I colored Jade with my copics, used some nesites and added a little bring.  The saying is from Inky Antics which goes perfect with the image. This is also being entered in the Fab 'n Funky challenge- Show us your digis.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your Friday, I know I am.

Sensational Saturday

Hello,, It's time for another sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow.  For this weeks challenge we did a black and white card with a splash of color. For my color splash I used  pink and I also used this beautiful new image from Sugar Creek Hollow called Floral Heart.

The papers are SU and  I went with cool colors to go with the image.  I had the hardest time getting my circles spaced evenly with this sketch for Sweet Sketch Wednesdays # 84. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Sharing a cup with you...

Hi Bloggers,
Just a quick post today. A few months ago I made a holder for the Calenders that I love so much. I made on calender so far( way too busy). I got a few extra minutes this weekend and wanted to get one done for January. 
This cute little guy is a digi image  by Whimisie Doodle, is he just the sweetest looking guy with his big cup of steaming hot  coco?  It has been cold and snowy in MI and he fits in perfectly.  I don't drink coffee, and just love a good cup of hot color! Thanks for stopping by, kick back and enjoy a cup of coco!

You Rock!

Today's card is made with a set I won from Doodle Pantry. It is made with the "Heart candy ants", it is super fun and comes with lots of different sayings that go on the hearts. I  decided  to go with the "You Rock". My daughter writes this a lot on her note books and on a white board that I have on the fridge.  So I thought she might like this for Valentines day. 
I used my nesties to cut the image out and paper that I used is from K and Company. I am entering this in Doodle Pantry-DPDC5, because this challenge they are giving away a digi image if you use one of their images, How cool is that?
I also used the Sketch form Sweet Sketch Wednesdays # 85
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.  Happy Stamping!

**Side note, Just for Entering this challenge I received a super cute free digi image! How cool is that?? All you have to do is enter the challenge and use a Doddle Pantry image.

Happy New Year!

It's  a new year...and for a new year I am doing a new post on my new designed blog.  Here is my card,
For this card I wanted to do something new, and that is to try the Doodle Pantry blog challenge. This card is for challenge #4, DPDC4. This challenge was to use something new, I have a new year, new image, new challenge( for me) and a new look to my blog.   These little bird images are just way too cute and I thought this guy has the perfect attitude for 2011. After sizing and printing this adorable digital image,  I used two different nesties for the layering. Used my copics for coloring and the card just came together. Thanks for Stopping by.
