For The Girls - Summer Trainers


Good morning!
Well I am running a little behind this week.
Being with my grand kids has
my days becoming a bit of a blur.
It is something, that I would never change
but sometimes my
days/weeks run away from me.
It is so awesome having so much love for others.

Creative Knockouts is bringing
their #447 challenge to you.
It is For The Girls

Our wonderful sponsor this week is from
All Dressed Up and the prize is 2 images.
Thank you so much for letting me color up

I loved this image as it reminds me of
my daughter and the rest of the girls
in our lives who love their Van's
and well shoes in general.
They love their flowers.
The sentiment is because they are positive people.

It is hard to see but I did use wink of stella on
the shoes for a bit of sparkle to go with the blue skies.

Please join us for this fun filled challenge
we would love to see what this For The Girls
challenge inspires you to create.

Thank you for joining me this week.
Have a blissful day!

Time of My Life

Hello, welcome to my blog!
Love is in the air!
Valentine's Day is coming up
so soon. Where has the time gone?
My mom always took the time
to make homemade cards and give
little candies to everyone each Valentine's Day.
We are truly missing those cards
and treats from her.
Our tradition is making homemade heart shaped pizza's.
This tradition started when 24 years ago, we
didn't have the money to get anything
for each other and we needed to eat.
So pizza it was.
Each year our kids had their own, made into
a size for just them.
We are now passing this tradition down to 
our grandchildren.
Throw in a dance or two while making
them just makes the day
even better.

Today, we have a brand new challenge for everyone

We are on #439 - Love/Valentine's

Our sponsor this week is 

Prize: 3 Images

Thank you  so much to The Paper Shelter for
letting me high light this fun
and beautiful image called

One of my favorite movies growing up
was Dirty Dancing.
It was so much fun to color up this image using
my Copic Markers
and to create a love/valentine's day card.

Please come and join us for
our brand new challenge.
We would love to see you.
My fellow DT's have wonderful
creations that will inspire you.

Thank you for joining me today.

Love You!


Good morning!
We have had some extra time with our grandson
as his twin sisters are still in the NICU.
They are growing and working really hard
so that one day soon they will be able to come
home. We all look forward to the day
we can actually meet our little bundles
of joy!

This week Emery has been my partner and
giving me advice on my card. My co-designer.

We have a fun filled Challenge for you this week
For Challenge #437 - Die Cut/Punches

Our wonderful sponsor this week is
Prize: 3 Images
Thank you so much to our sponsors this week for
letting me highlight this beautiful image 

I ran out of a few colors of my copic marker
it ended up being too hard to create an scene
like I wanted too.
My next best way to do it was
using my Die Cuts.

Such a beautiful image and it honestly could
be used for other occasions, so I chose
an anniversary instead of Valentines.

My grandson (4 years old) figured that I needed
to add the sun, cloud and the bird to finish it off. 
My mom always let the kids help her with her cards
if they wanted too. Passing on a traditions.

This beautiful image.
is colored using my Copic Markers.
The Dies that were used to are from Gina Marie Designs
The sentiments (Express Yourself) and paper are from Stampin' Up.

Please join us over at Creative Knockouts for this fun filled Challenge.
My fellow team mates have tons of inspiration for you.

Thank you so much supporting me.

Just Because

Today we are having mild weather again.
It is melting snow and a wonderful break
from the -36 temperatures.
It has been a while since a new card has been posted.
Our family has grown some.
Our son and his fiancé had identical twin girls
on New Years Day! They surprised us
and came very early. 
We have only met them through FaceTime but we look
forward to getting to know them in person when they are 
out of the NICU!
Our lives are truly brighter with our granddaughters and grandson.
Being a grandparent is just the best.

So today, we have a brand new challenge
