Splitcoast WT172

Good Thursday All!
So i thought i'd try my hand at a splitcoast challenge today. The challenge was to use a bird. I think I have maybe two birds in my very limited supply of stamps so it was a REAL challenge for me! Also, I rarely use my bold brights so I decided to go fresh and fun. This was the end result.
Sorry about the shadows! I couldn't get a clear picture and my scanner creates shadows. Just imagine this very bold and, well, bright!

OCC Challenge

Good Monday All!
After a hard day of housekeeping I decided to sit down and give this week's OCC challenge a try. At least one brad and one button...sounds easy, right? Well I guess my brain is a bit tired as this was the best I could do today. I used Julee's sketch challenge from week #17 as my inspiration. Then I found the cool little button in the center of the flower and there were my colours! Man, I need a die cut machine! Anyways, that's all for now.

Beate's BIC #18

When I saw the inspiration for Beate's BIC this week I had to play! I only wish I could make a cake that beautiful! My card will just have to do. I couldn't get it to show up any darker but you get the idea. I'm going to pop this one in the mail for my Mom as she just had eye surgery. That way she'll have something beautiful to look at when the swelling goes down and she can see again!
That's all for today...thanks for stopping by!

Mojo Monday Wk. 42

Well, it's monday and you know what that means...time to get your Mojo on! I just LOVE Julee's sketches and this was no exception. I had a chance to do this one between loads of laundry and coats of paint. I hadn't used these ladybugs yet so they were my inspiration. As always,it looks so much brighter, and better, in person.

Hope you all have a great day!

Beate's BIC #17

Good Wednesday All! I love going to Beate's site as she is super talented! I am totally new to this challenge thing but i decided to try her BIC for this week. I wish I had white embossing powder but I ran out so I had to use clear instead. This was what I came up with. doesn't compare to all of you "experts" out there but I had fun playing!

Midnight Stampin'

Happy Tuesday!
I did so much blog hopping last night I only got to make one card. I was inspired by a color combo that I saw in a magazine. Not normally colours that I would think to put together but I like it.
That's it for now but I may get a chance to "play" more today!

Mojo Monday Wk. 41

Good Monday All!
I've been working on our bathroom renovations all weekend so ... no creating. But, being Mojo Monday, I sat down tonight and worked on Julee's sketch for this week. ( I never use vellum so I pulled it out and tried to get inspired. I wanted to do something "shillouette" so I stamped the image in Sahara Sand on Barely Banana and then put the vellum over top to give it a softer look. I'm happy with the finnished card. I think i'm going to try to do a few more cards before hitting the sheets...everyone else is in bed already so I have total peace and quiet!

Mojo Monday Week 40

Okay, I know I already did a card for this sketch challenge. I was so intent on using that circle designer paper and the colors on it that I ended up with a card that I thought was...okay. I love this stamp set and it was the one I originally intended to use but it didn't work with the designer paper I had chosen. The last card has been bothering me since I posted it so I decided to make another one. I love this one! However, it looks way better in person as the black and coral are sharper and you can see that the butterflies are popped. I know it's simple but i'm so much happier with this one!
Anyways gotta go babysit my girlfriends kids.
Have a Kreative day!

Mojo Monday Sketch #40

Okay, so i've never done a sketch challenge before so I thought i'd try one. My husband has been home from work for the past two days so it's been all work, no play for me. I did stay up 'till 1 AM doing this one though.
My friend Dee turned me on to Julee'e Mojo Monday ( So here it is. I guess it's okay for my first kick at the can.
I wanted to use this designer paper ( not SU! ): ) so I worked off that. I freehand cut the circles so that they would be "imperfect" like the ones on the paper.
Well I guess I should get to work now...watering my vegetable garden and grouting tile. I also made a bet with Hubby last night...I thought the Penguins would force a game 7 in the Stanley Cup Finals...of course I was wrong! So I have to make him peanut butter cookies today.
Off I go!
Have a Kreative day!

Father's day card

Okay, so my husband is a man of simple tastes when it comes to cards. He's not entirely impressed with beautiful card creations. So I decided to go simple and personal. I thought the "Mother's day" stamp from SU! All Holidays was a better choice for this card than the father's day one. I simply used a marker and the stamp-a-ma-jig to fit the "FATHER'S" from the one stamp into the "happy and day" from the mother's day stamp. I love how this turned out and I think he will too!
I've begun the dauntung task of planting a 30x30 vegetable first one. I think my day will be occupied with dirt and seeds, not cardstock and stamps today! Or maybe it will rain which means the excitement of laundry and more bathroom renos!
Hope you all have a fantastic day...thanks for stopping by!
