sweet sunday challenge #2

I was very excited when I saw this sketch for the challenge this week! I was anxiously awaiting my shipment from SU with my new catty goodies. I wanted to get my hands on the fabulous new punches!! I had to postpone my card until I had a few moments to spare to play with my toys! This is the card that I came up with. I don't know how Karen could squeeze 4 items across the bottom, I only could fit 3! I used the yummy new Raspberry Tart DSP and Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White CS. The words are "A Beautful Life" set and the flowers are from "Eastern Elegance" set. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by.

I love when I get a fabulous card in the mail! Yesterday, I got this adorable bee card from my upline, Beckie. It is just so darn cute! I really want to get this set. Beckie always has great ideas. I love my upline! She isn't even my immediate upline but helps us anytime we need it and always sends encouragement.
I have also included some pictures of Logan's room I was using the SU! Decor Elements line with the flowers and butterflys. It totally matches her room. I think it turned out so cute! She loved helping me put them on the wall. What do you think? I know it is a little difficult to get a good perspective on these. I think I need a photo class!
thanks for stopping by!

Hats off to my fabulous sideline, Karen Giron! She has always been so creative and she is hosting weekly sketch challenges too. I'm so excited to be participating. Check out here awesome blog. She is constantly coming up with great ideas. I wish that I had an ounce of her creativity. Well, here is my card for her challenge. I was using scrap odds and ends to create this card.

Love you much!

I finally getting motivated to stamp again. I hate when I fall into a slump. The new catty has definitely given me that spark! You gotta check it out. It is so awesome!! Here is one of my samples that I'm working on for my class on Friday. I want to use so many ideas I don't know where to start! I thought I'd as least do a Valentine's day card. I'm using a stamp from the Love you much set and the yummy Candy Lane paper! I thought I throw in the new Heart to Heart punch too. Since it was lacking the wow factor, I added some pink chunky glitter. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by.

birthday diva!

I thought I would post a picture of what I got to do this weekend. Logan had her 4th birthday party. It was so cute to see a bunch of little girls getting all glammed up! Isn't she so darn cute! Well, I guess I am biased too. We had her party at Lollilocks, a hair salon that has birthday parties too.They all got their hair fixed and toes and fingernails painted! There were 6 little girls. They had so much fun! I promise I will post some cards later in the week. I just tired today after doing laundry!

the holidays are over!

I can't believe that I haven't posted since Thanksgiving! I'm such a slacker and I'm sorry. I don't where the time has gone. I was trying to get my christmas cards finished and shopping and all of those lame excuses. One good excuse is that I have become addicted to facebook! OMG! I can't believe how much time that I waste on that site. But I have reconnected with some lost friends and that is so much fun!
All hasn't been neglected. I did get to my friend, Kara's house, and got some scrapbooking finished. I was impressed how much I got done in a short time. I managed to complete 5 pages in about 3 hours! I love SU scraping kits. I used the "I'm Here" boy set. It was from a few cattys ago. I have included one of the more simple pages that I completed. I thought it was missing something but everyone there thought this page looked great without a lot of details. The pictures are a little hard to see but it is my DH, Karl, and 1st child Karl. I just had this pictures laying around. I thought it was a great daddy -son moment! I hope you enjoy. I promise it won't be 2 months before I post again!
