Spring Coffee Lovers-card 2

Well, it seems I have to have different links, to link up! lol I tried posting my cards together but it seems the linky tool did not like that. lol ;)

Here's my second card.

I played some more and ended with this. Again, not so sure it's 'me'?...But I seem to like this card, better than my first one...maybe the colors or layout...maybe more 'me' in it that I can see...I really don't know! lol I just like it. :)

Okay, that's all for me today! Don't forget to swing on over to the Spring Coffee Lovers blog and join in on all the fun! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Coffee Lovers Hop

Hey y'all!

I'm just swinging in today, to share a couple cards I made for the Spring Coffee Lovers Hop! :) I absolutely LOVE these hops! If you haven't checked it out yet, be sure you do!

Here is my card.

Okay. This is what I first ended up with. Not so sure it's really 'me'?...But I still do like it! ;) One thing I found out, is I really need some other 'coffee' themed stamps! I really only have a couple sets, though you gotta work with what you have, right?! ;)

Don't forget to swing on over to the Spring Coffee Lovers Hop...Lots of fun and inspiration! Hope to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

CAS on Sunday

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday!

Today, we have a brand new challenge at CAS on Sunday!  This time we're all about 'Girl Power'...make a card for a girl. :)

So, here's my card.

Well, I actually did get some light! ;) Hopefully, my photo doesn't look too bad?!...

Well, as you can see, there's nothing! ACK! You see I have a card, but I had no opportunity to take a photo! The weather has been darn right nasty. Just rain, rain, and more rain. Along with dark skies. I really have no good lighting in the house and I even said, 'let's try to take a photo in the bathroom'...big time fail, there! LOL It didn't work in my favor at all! So, I will be posting my card as soon as I can snap a good photo. ;)

Now, I didn't want to leave y'all without a card. So, after going through my albums, I came across a card that I don't believe I shared before?...Sometimes my memory is not the best, so if I already did, I apologize. But please enjoy. ;)

I kept things simple. And rather than filling the sentiment in with the word 'stars', I went with adding a few little pink stars. Hopefully, it still works?!... ;) 

Be sure to swing on over to CAS on Sunday and check out all the DT creations! And while you're there, I hope you'll join us!?!...

Enjoy your day!

you are my sunshine...

Hey y'all! Happy Friday! :)

We have a brand new CAS-ual Fridays  challenge for you, today!

So, here's my card.

Bright and happy, yeah?!...Once again, I was on a complete different path of making a card. Then ended up with this. ;) I'm realizing more and more, that if I tell myself to 'slow down' and just let things 'flow', everything seems to fall into place. Or perhaps, as time goes by, my crafty skills improve?...Whatever it is, I have been enjoying it. :)

Be sure to swing on over to CAS-ual Fridays and see all the creations from the DT! And while you're there, I hope you'll join us?!!...

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your weekend!

Waffle Flower Challenge

Hey y'all!
Happy Monday! Hope you have a great start to the week! :)

Today, we have a brand new challenge at the Waffle Flower Photo Challenge!...And another fun photo it is!

...Sigh...Love this photo and colors.

Here's what I came up with.

Let me be completely honest. I had another card I made for this challenge. Then at the last minute I came up with this.

I was playing around with things more, and one thing kept leading to another. Before I knew it, I had formed a card! ;) My first card wasn't horrible or anything. I just thought this was a better fit and more 'me'.?.

Be sure to swing on over to the Waffle Flower Challenge and see all the DT creations! And while you're there, I hope you'll join us?!! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Been a little quiet...and a wedding card.

Hey y'all! Happy Friday! :)

*giving a little update on myself. you can just scroll down to see my card, if you want.*

I know I've been a little quiet on my blog, lately. Truth is, I had nothing but a terrible toothache! Started one day and led to another and so on. After the second day and seeing my face somewhat (well, maybe quite a bit) swollen, I broke down and took some pain medicine. Probably, should have done that in the first place!...Finally, had some relief and swelling went down. a lot. Today, I'm much better.
I know most will and would say, 'you need to go to the dentist'. And normally I would have. Though, I don't have health insurance (for myself). So, you see it's not easy to just walk in or call around and pay up front hundreds of dollars, just to see what going on and then go from there. All I see is $$$ and I'm not sitting on a pile of cash. I'm not one for excuses, but I can't just go to any 'joe schmo' dentist either. I've had my luck with dentist, which isn't always the best. My last visit I spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars to basically have a bunch of teeth pulled. Which in the back of my mind, I question if some of them even needed to be pulled. And the tooth that has been bothering me is one that they said was good. So, you got me. And even when I had insurance I still couldn't afford everything that was needed to be done. Needless to say, I have a lot work to be done. Just waiting for things to fall into place for me. Hopefully at some point, they will. ;)

*please know, this took a lot for me to write. while I try to be 'open' with things, there are some things that are very hard for me. I feel I'll be judged (which really, even if I don't open up, I probably still will be?.) and guess you could say I'm insecure with myself about this, so that alone is a huge step for me to share about it. And I'm not looking for anything in return from sharing this. Just something I guess I felt I should do?...(I don't always have a way of explaining things. sorry.)*

Anyhow, on to my card.

So, I was touring around 'blogland' and was looking at the challenges that are going on. I came across the Altenew February Challenge. Somehow, I completely spaced about their challenge! lol Well, now I'll be on the lookout! ;)

The theme is: Gold and Glitter.

February 2015 challenge

I am also going to play along with Inkspirational! Thanks, Darnell for asking me to play along! ;)

So, here's my card.

A wedding card, indeed! I did a little stenciling for my background, which I used a lighter pink for it. Hopefully, you can see it?...I didn't cover the whole card with it, just a 'here and there' thing. After, I stamped my image on some pattern paper, twice. Then, stamped my image over my stenciled background. Once done, I cut my pieces out and adhered one of them to the card (over my stamped image). Next, I used some 'gold glitter sticker hearts' to make a flower, so to speak. After, I added my second cut piece over the flower and to line up with my first cut piece. To finish things off, a few gold rhinestones and my sentiment (which, I actually added after stamping my image on my background). So, what do you think?!...

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your weekend! :)

you make me happy...

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday! :)

Today, we have a brand new challenge over at CAS on Sunday! And this time it's all about 'chevrons'! How fun is that?!...

So, here's my card.

As much as I love chevrons, I was stumped on making a card! I was just gonna do a very clean CAS card. Then, after I remembered I had a distressed chevron background stamp, I decided I should probably use it. ;) So, I inked it up and then stamped it once on a piece of scrap paper, then on my card. And believe it or not, that's the only stamp I used! Let me know what you think?!...

Be sure to swing on over to CAS on Sunday and see all the DT creations! And while your there, I hope you'll join us?!!...

Enjoy your day!
