Tuesday Trigger Challenge!

Hey everyone, hope your all having a great week!! Wow, I must say "I am so proud of myself, for doing three challenges this week!!"....This rarely happens for me. :)

Okay, so when I was browsing along blogs, I came across Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger Challenge! I have never played the challenge before and thought I'd give it a try!! :) You all, should check it out too!! So, they use a photo of something, for you to be inspired by....and you create from there.

Now, I saw this photo and loved all the details to it! For my card, I went with what I liked. Which happened to be the butterflies and colors!! Who doesn't like butterflies and colors?!...When I stamped on my butterflies, I misted them with water before stamping on my paper. I wanted that 'watercolor' effect. I slightly, overlaped them and angled them to go towards the top of my card. I kept my card simple and chose no greeting. In which I thought, this card could be used for many different greetings?! I hope you enjoyed?!!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!! :)

"The Play Date Cafe" Challenge #128

Hey everyone, this is my second post for the day!! Woohoo! :) So, I came across the The Play Date Cafe Challenge and I instantly wanted to play!! However, I wasn't even sure if I would be able to whip something up?! With everything that's going on around me, it was all about finding time and having a vision! Well, I found both!!

Aren't the colors soooo fun?!!! I love them!

Also, this was my first time playing with "The Play Date Cafe"!! I think I'm gonna have to play again! :) So, keeping my card simple. I used a flower punch with white cardstock and then used some pink ink to color them. I used a nice bright orange ink for my greeting. And added a couple pink pearls, for some extra 'pop'.

Thanks for stopping by (for some, again), have a great day!! :)

"A Blog Named Hero" Challenge!!

Greetings y'all! Hope your all having a great week so far! As usual, mine has been busy...but what can I say?! I do have four kids to juggle around!! lol :) So, while going about my crazy schedule, I checked out the challenge on A Blog Named Hero. This weeks challenge, cards with a view!

please pardon my lighting, overcast today

Okay, now I must say, I don't normally do too many cards with a window. With that being said, I kept my card very CAS. I wanted to show my 'window' off and not hide it too much with embellishments. Please note, the only Hero Arts stamp I used was my greeting (Hero Arts clear stamps-everyday sayings). The flower stamps are from an older set I bought many years ago and sorry to say, I can't rememeber who they're done by. :/
I must say, "What a fun challenge and it has opened my mind, to doing some new thing's with cards!" Looks like I'll be playing around with some more 'windows' in the future!! :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! :)

Hey everyone, Happy Friday! I can't tell you, how glad I am that it's Friday!! It's been a crazy week for me! Anyways, when I got home today, I checked out the challenge for CAS-ual Fridays....when I saw what it was, I knew I could whip something up! Though I didn't think by today!!!

So, the challenge is: Opposites Attract! You had to pick colors (from a color wheel), that are opposite of one another....How fun is that?!! You certainly, should check it out  CAS-ual Fridays!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!! :)

Please Note!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to fill you all in on a some changes I made to my blog. Mainly with leaving comments. I had some spam come through and didn't realize it until late last night. I was not too happy about it! In trying to handle this all, I changed my settings where I need to approve all my comments before they get published. Hopefully, this will help out and nobody else will have to see 'junk' in my comments! Now, I did NOT put on a "word verification" due to a lot of challenges, ask for it to be turned off.

So, now can I ask for your help??....I just would like to know, if indeed my settings are set up correctly. If you leave me a comment, can you please tell me what it showed? Did it say "your comment will be published, when approved" (or something like that)? And that there was NO word verification? This would be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you so much, have a great day! :)

A Blog Named Hero Challenge!

Greetings everyone, hpoe your all having a great Tuesday!!

Todays post is for A Blog Named Hero Challenge! Feel free to check it out, the challenge does end tonight! So, do hurry and try to get something in! :)

Okay, so the stamp I chose to use was: Hero Arts poly clear stamps-Friendly Flags. Now, I know they are flags but I kept seeing christmas trees!! I flipped the flag upside down and then used some white glitter for some snow! My 'merry chirstmas' is NOT a Hero Arts stamps, to be honest I can't remember who it is by?....I added some touches of pearls, just to bring everything out a little more!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day! :)

Hey everyone! It's been a little while since I've posted something, sorry about that! Thing's never seem to wanna stop! A busy, busy, month for me. And really, it's all just getting started!!

Anyways, I share two cards with you today. Which are basically, the same card but tweeked slightly different in ways. I was just purely having fun and playing around with things!

I like both cards....just was trying one, with paper and one without paper. Making some kind of embellishment. At the same time, keeping it fairly simple to do.

For this card above, I tried a little something different. For my stamped flower, I used a blue ink and then while wet added some embossing powder to it. Now normally for my embossing, I would have used an embossing stamp pad/etc. Maybe this is another way to do it?...I don't know, but it somewhat worked for me. It didn't cover everything, how I would have liked but I like the result I did get. Which was, some areas highlighted more than others. I think it brings some 'character' to the flower??....

And for this card above, I kept it pretty basic. I just stamped my image on white cardstock and added my embelliashments. Though, I did add foam squares on the back, to make it stand out from the card itself.

Thank you for stopping by today and you probably won't hear anything from me until after Easter (which also happens to be my birthday)! So have a great holiday everyone and I'll see you all soon!
