flower power

This is going to be a quick post today. I need to get my tush off to the gym!! It's been a while since I've gone and I can tell. I've been enjoying a week of doing a whole lot of nothing since my friend, Cindy, came to visit. But I did sneek in a second to make a card for Kristina's color challenge this week. Seeing the inspiration picture, made me think that I really need to go get a mani and pedi! The colors were pink and red. I used the Pocket silhouettes set on the tag but I don't think that you can see it very well since I used Pink Pirouette ink! I loved the colors this week. Of course it made me think of my fav Bella Rosa DSP. I grabbed a couple of the flowers from the new flower fusion in this catty and the fab designer buttons too! I really need to improve my photo skills too!! Enjoy.

pumpkin crazy

Here is the picture that I promised from the pumpkin patch on Saturday. I was so bummed that it was totally an overcast day. I love going to this pumpkin patch, Rockcreek Farms.
It is so big and it has the best views of the mountains in the background when it is clear. I have some of the best pictures taken here! I only took one posed picture because the kids were too excited to sit for anymore. The cards are some ideas that I'm working on for my upcoming card class. What do you think?

Color Challenge!

I can't believe how the time flies! It is time for another color challenge. Can you believe that it is number 26? Kristina has been doing some great work. I can't believe that I haven't posted since Friday. I'm such a slacker. I actually got a lot done too! We took the kids to the pumpkin patch in 40 degree, misty cold weather! I think that we are crazy. I even got to some scrapbooking. I'll get all of those pictures loaded later. Here is my card for today's challenge. Our challenge was to use Rose Red, Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Whisper White. I just got a cuttlebug embossing plate so I had to use that for my background. I think I'm addicted! The stamp is from Pun Fun. I thought the ribbon was a fun touch. Enjoy!

Bugs for you!

It is time for another color challenge from Kristina Werner. She is so Fabulous for coming up with these color challenges. Thanks! When I saw these colors, I immediately thought little boy. These week the colors to use are Ballet Blue, Certainly Celery, Ruby Red and So Saffron. I used my Bugs and Wishes set for the layout. The background is stamped with the Polka Dot DG stamp. I'm sure that I'll be using this card as a birthday card for some little boy. Enjoy!

weekend challenge too

I guess that I was very motivated this weekend. I got all of my samples done for my card class this thursday. I just need to cut everything but that will be another day! I thought that I'd try the SCS challenge too. I have been dying to use this new set, Humor in High Heels. This will definitely be a well used set! Even better, I used all scraps to put the card together. I must have had some great mojo! I used Purely Pomegranate CS, Bali Breeze DSP and Humor in High Heels set, Crystal effects on the shoes and of course some DD glitter! I guess I better post quickly, I see a naked baby coming my way! Here is my card. Enjoy. Have great rest of the weekend.

anniversary blog candy!

Well it's a few weeks late. Oops! I just realized that I've been blogging for just over a year now. To celebrate my milestone, I thought I'd share some blog candy. Post a comment and I pick a winner at random Tuesday evening. I can't believe that it has been a year already. I know I got off to a slow start but I've been picking up steam lately. Thanks to everyone that stops by for a visit. The candy is some great fall ribbon, a stamp set, a canvas frame that you can stamp on and some rub-ons. Enjoy!

color challenge

You know it's Thursday when I get a color challenge uploaded! This is going to be a quickie. I need to get to sleep (as usual!!). When I was thinking of my design, this is not how the card looked but given the time factor, I'm going with it. I started the card today before I went to work but I didn't get my new stamps in the mail yet. So that's why it's after 11pm and I'm posting my card! I loved the colors this week. Another great reminder of fall. We had to work with Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. I used the Upsy Daisy set for this card. When I first saw this set I didn't really like it but I've seen so many great samples that I had to get it. Go figure! Here is my card. Enjoy and good night! (Hopefully my computer won't take an hour to upload!) Sorry for the fuzzy picture. It looked okay on the camera.
