Happy Easter & Hambo Hoedown

I know it's the end of the day and a little too late to wish everyone a Happy Easter, but Happy Easter anyhow!  We had such a lovely day, I was enjoying the time spent with my daughter.  After church she decided she wanted an Easter egg hunt and still wanted a basket.  Who knew?!
 



Easter wasn't the only thing I wanted to share today.  I also wanted to share my card for the Hambo Hoedown this week.  The challenge was to use an element of weaving on your project.  I saw this idea on Pinterest to weave ribbon through your card base.  I couldn't figure out how to do exactly what I saw, my punch wouldn't reach where I wanted it to reach.  I did my best though.


I used the stamp image, Baby Got Back and paired it with a sentiment stamp I had in my stash.

I am headed off, take care.

Hambo Hoedown - Your Favorite Embellishments

Good Morning. It's Saturday and I have no plans.  Feels like a scrappy weekend to me.  Next week is spring break for my daughter and I have crafts to plan for the week, with her.

But today is Hambo Hoedown day.  This week's challenge is to use your favorite embellishments.  Well if you follow my blog you can tell I love rhinestones.  I think they are an almost every card.  I like ribbons too and I am getting into handmade flowers.  So my card has a little of all three on it.  I used an image from Hop Art Designs called Josephine Puppy.  (Hop Art Designs retired from the Hambo Store, but I bought this image from there).


Well I am off to get back to crafting before the girl wakes up.

Take care.

So this week I made a birthday box.  The image I used is called Cocoa's Train.


As I looked for embellishments I found I owned a Sizzix birthday candle set.  So some die cut candles were added and there we go.

Can Life Get any Crazier?

Hi Friends.  I guess I shouldn't ask if life can get crazier because it just might.  These last few days have flown by with plenty of stuff to do and keep me busy.  I need to slow down a bit and get a handle on things.

I have managed to try out two recipes in the past few days.  I made Garlic Parmesan chicken. This was really good, especially after it sat a bit.


And then I made homemade corned beef hash.


This was really, really good!  Even my daughter, who does not eat beef tackled this!

After I made these wonderful dishes I made a card to remind me what I should be doing - Dieting!  Although I like her thought process better than mine.  LOL!


The image is from Birdie Brown and the sentiment is from TLC Creations.  Too funny!

Ok, I am off to finsih more projects.  Take care.

Anything Goes - Seeing Double (I used 2 flowers and two sets of pearl embellishments)

Come on Spring...

OMG, I am so ready for Spring.  This weather is having it's way on my sinuses.  It's hot one minute and cold the next and I can't get used to it.  I know I am preaching to the choir.  We all are ready for warmer weather.

Today's card is brought to you by A Day for Daisies.  I love the look of Tammy's images.  They are so soft and pretty and just scream for pastel colors - like Spring.



I hope you are having a good weekend.  Time for me to go pick up the girl from roller skating.

Take care.

Sweet N Sassy Friday - Z Fold with Twist

Hello! It's FRIDAY!!!!!!!!  I love Fridays.

Today is a new challenge at Sweet N Sassy.  This week we are challenging you to make Z fold cards.  Z fold cards are quick and easy to make and I love folded cards that are different so I had to add a twist to mine.  But before I get to all of that let me tell you what's going on at Sweet N Sassy. Today we are also introducing you to March's new release.  This release is focusing on flowers and they are lovely. Let me show you.


I have used the Magnolia Block stamp for my Z Fold card.  Ready for the twist?






Wait there's more.....


Inside I have used a sentiment from the new Be Encouraged Sentiment set.  How cool is that?


Be sure to leave comments here as well as the other DT members blog.  One of us is a mystery blogger and a winner will be chosen at random from that blogger's comments to receive the entire release.

Now I hope I have inspired you to want to join the Z fold challenge.  Head over to the digi challenge blog to link up your creations. 

Take care.
