hello there

Hey there! I am so sick today. I think my body just was not ready for trips to the county fair then standing for four hours to see my boys!! (One Direction!) They never disappoint. I had a summer cold when I went,but now it is full on flu mode. I'm just miserable. Anyway, here is a card a I made a couple of days ago for the Verve week 2 sketch. Here is my card -

 I really like the colors scheme. More designer paper in the stash. :O

Here is the sketch we were to follow.

Thanks for stopping by. Now time for more cold meds and Ambien.

Anniversary Wishes..

Hi everyone! It's Monday and time for the Mojo Monday challenge. I love these because they make me think outside of my little sketch box. I used some stamps that ordered from Verve n Friday - and they came today. Seriously...are you kidding me? I have never had that kind of turn around on anything I bought. Anyway, the sets I bought were On Occasion and Poppy Birthday along with the matching dies. great stamps. Anyway, I wanted to make a card that was a little different. Something maybe a little rustic or just quirky. Either way, this is the card that came out:

I just think it's a little different. I had really been wanting to use that "wooden" paper., but never really had anything to match. I matched it with the SU Strawberry Slush and loved it. 

Here is the Mojo Monday Sketch, by the way! 

Thanks for stopping in!!

Thought of you today....

Happy Saturday everyone! We have the county fair in town, so we went last night and had a great time. Fair food = yum! :)

Today, I have another card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches. I just love the sketch. I used some great designer paper I found in a stash I have had for a couple of years. It matched perfectly with the SU Strawberry Slush (which may just be my favorite color ever!) and the PapertreyInk Lemon Tart - another favorite. I just adore this card. The sentiment is also from SU. The butterfly is an older Verve die. Anyway, here is my card:

And here, again, is the sketch:

Well, that's that. I hope you're having a wonderful Saturday!

be whoever you want to be...

Hey there. I have a card for this week's Colour Q challenge #254. The colors are so vibrant, and I immediately thought of this old Market Street stamp set that I loved. I'm pretty sure they're out of business now (since I cannot find a website - but let me know if I am wrong). So, here is the card I made:

And here are the colors for this week.

Thanks for stopping in. Check out the challenge and play along! Their is always a lot of inspiration!

I think you can!

Well, good morning to everyone! I have a full day ahead of me, but I still managed to get a quick card in for this week's Freshly Made Sketch and also the colors from this week's Color Throwdown. It's a really neat design with such vibrant colors from the ladies at CTD. Here is a quick card I made for it.

And here is the sketch:

And the color scheme:

I just love the little Papertrey Train Track's set. I don't use it a whole lot, but it is a fun set.There is a little boy having some trouble in school, so I think this will be in the mail today on it's way to him! :)

Signing off...
