Hello, Hello, Hello! I am super excited as today is the very last day of school for our daughter Kaitlyn. Boy oh boy I just might try to create some fun dance moves today. Let the fun and games begin. Yahooooo It is summer time!!! :) :) :)

Kelly has a brand new challenge for us over at Creative Knockouts.  I am super excited to work with our sponsors Digi from Fred She Said.  They let me use the Cosmos digi. Thank you so much. For Challenge #95 Kelly would like to see us break out the Buttons
For my card above I added the buttons around my image with pearls.  Too bad because I didn't have more of the buttons.  My image is colored with Copic's and hard to see but some shine added to it with Wink of Stella.  It was also a blast to use my newest spellbinder and the inside was circles spellbinders.

We would love to see what kind of creations you create with buttons so please hop on over to Creative Knockouts to see our inspiration and to show us yours.

Have an amazing day!!

Happy Father's Day

Welcome back to my blog! I am the hostess with the mostess at 4 Crafty Chicks this week for Challenge #251 and it would be fantastic to see Father's Day creations.

Our guest designers and fellow DT's have some awesome Father's day creations if you would like more inspiration.

My card above is a very clean and simple one.  This is a card that I have made for my dad. I used Early Espresso Ink and Chocolate Chip Ink for the tree and the rectangle behind it.  Real Red Ink was used for the sentiment. I look forward to giving it to my dad.

Rolling By

Hi! We are already into the second week of June, can you believe it? Today at Creative Knockouts we are on Challenge # 93 and we would like to see you USE YOUR STASH!

My image above was colored with copic markers. Since I have been trying to organize my craftroom to help relieve a bunch of stress (not sure if it hasn't created even more mess) several gems have been found.  Breaking out the brads, the festive paper-piercing pack, framelits label collection, pacific point designer paper, scallops textured impressions.  All of these items are old some have been used and other are not.  So I guess you can say I USED my stash.

Today, I will be going to the very last function of Tristan's  high school days. I look forward to seeing friends at the Sports banquet. May your week be filled with something very inspiring.

Our sponsor this time for Creative Knockouts is Artbymiran and she let me use Rolling By. Thank you for letting me use this super cute image to color and design with.

Prize: 3 Digis
Here is hoping you have a fun filled day with what every you are able to do. We would love to see your creations over at Creative Knockouts this week.

Thanks for stopping by for peek at my newest creation. 

Polka Dots

Good Morning! Today is Thursday and you know what that means....a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Our one and only Tina is our hostess this week and for Challenge #250 she would like us to use Polka Dots.  I love polka dots and well as you can see by my above card that I have gone just a tad crazy with them.  Maybe a little overboard.  I just loved the paper and then I thought get out your circle punch...LOL. 

So come on over to 4 Crafty Chicks and see what my fellow team mates and designers have to inspire you.  I can't wait to see what you create.

Thank you so much for joining me for this reveal.
