The Girl has Mojo!

Hi everyone. Today I have two cards to share and they aren't from me. My daughter has the creative mojo this week. She made two birthday cards for her friends this week.

This image is from Treehouse Stamps. I think they went out of business now.


This image is from Stretch N Bubbles.

Have a great day. I cut the grass today so I am now exhausted but I may be back with something later.

For my Friend

My friend has been bugging me to send her one of my handmade cards. I have to laugh because she is the person who got me into cardmaking and blogging and she still wants handmade cards, even though she can make them herself. Every card I have ever posted she wants for herself.

So I decided to make her her very own card, so she can stop asking. Her card features an image from Fresh Brewed Designs.



Look at those sparkly wings!!!


I hope she likes this. We will have to wait and see.

Bees a Plenty

This weekend was a very nice weekend in FL. The weather was wonderful, while just miles away in North Carolina tornadoes were ripping up whole towns. My prayers go out to the families in NC. I pray that you all continue to be safe and can rebuild lives.

The bees were out in full force this weekend. It just so happens I was working on a bee card. The image and sentiment is from Deedee's digis, Just Bee-cause.
The card base is a template by My Scrap Chick.




Take Care.

Make a Wish

I wish every day was Saturday. I wish I could win the lottery. I wish I could retire, right now! TGIF!!!!

This card is called make a wish and I just did. In fact I made 3 wishes. If there is a fairy godmother out there could she just grant any one of those wishes? I would greatly appreciate it. LOL! That should tell you the kind of week I've had. Thank heavens for the weekends!

I digress...back to my card for today. This image is brought to you by Fresh Brewed Designs. I wanted to make a turquoise and brown card but I ended up adding yellow. I think this color combination is another one of my mystery combination, but it works.


Have a great day! It's Friday!

Love Yourself

Have you seen the doodled sentiment image Paulette has in her shop? This is one from the Love set. I really love how these turn out when all colored up.

This is a reminder to be nice to yourself and show yourself some love. I have to remember to do that for myself. I am always so busy treating everyone else nice and forgetting about me.



Take Care.

It's a Party with Designed 2 Delight

This week's image from Designed 2 Delight is called Garden Party and it's a cutie. I had just bought these great papers by My Mind's Eye and this was the perfect image to use them.


I'm on a roll, this is my second week participating in the progressive challenge. Hopefully I'll get another week in.


Enjoy your evening. I have another card to get finished.

Seeds of Kindness

Hello, I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. They go way too fast for my liking.

I worked with Deedee's Digi set called Seeds of Kindness. I had bought some seeds and thought I'd get to planting them. Never did get around to that, so here I have made a seed packet to give them away. Hopefully the recipient will make better use of them.



I used some very old stash for this project. Dollar Tree used to sell scrapbook supplies years ago. They've since stopped and now I find myself hoarding the papers I bought. LOL! I have got to break myself of that habit.

Have a great weekend.

Birthday Hoot

Somewhere along this road I have fallen in love with owls. I have no idea where this came from, I am such a city girl and I'll tell you, if I ever came face to face with a real one...I would be scared out of my mind. But as long as they are on paper like this little cutie from The Stamping Boutique, I think I'll be ok.


Have a great day.

Everything's Is Blooming....

Everything is blooming and my allergies have gone crazy. I love this time of year but it doesn't love me. And to top it off the grass is growing like crazy! You know how I hate to cut grass. But oh, well; I'll take this weather to the weather up north. It's April and they just had some more snow last week.

This little cutie is from Chi Chi Memories. I thought it was perfect to represent the blooms all around. The sentiment is from TLC Creations.


I followed the sketch over at the Chi Chi challenge blog.
