Hello and happy Saturday. I have a quick post for you today using Verve's new stamp set Believe. This card is close to my heart. I made it in honor of my SIL Stacey, who is a 3-Year Survivor of breast cancer. Breast cancer is an awful disease that affects so many women in our world today. For every one of these Believe stamp sets that Verve sells, they are donating $10 to Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Go check out this great site and help in the drive to cure breast cancer. Here is my card ......
Thanks for stopping by on this Halloween Saturday. Please have a safe and fun spooky day. I'll talk to you again tomorrow.
Hello and welcome to Friday and the weekend. Woohoo!! I have a short, quick post for you today as I am getting ready to go over to my precious friend Mercy's house to spend the day with her stamping. Oh yeah, we'll probably go eat lunch too. Does it get any better than that? Stamping and lunch with a great friend.
I made this card several months ago and had forgotten all about posting it. It is a very plain, straightforward card using Snuggle from The Greeting Farm. The sentiment is from the set Butterfly Wishes which is also by TGF. Love both of these stamps as I do the whole TGF line. By the way, have you checked out the new Twinkle Tots line that is being previewed this week over on The Greeting Farm blog? If not, go check out these new images that Marie has come up with. Love, love, love them!!! Now, back to my card and here it is ......
Thank you so much for stopping by my little 'ole blog today. I hope that you have an amazing weekend. I'll talk to you soon.
Hello and happy Thursday and welcome to our Treehouse Thursday Challenge THT021. Our challenge today is a "Fall Color Challenge" and you are to use Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango and Soft Suede; or similar colors if you don't have these. I started with the set Simple Wishes from Treehouse Stamps and paired it with some paper by K&Co. The main focal panel was stamped and then sponged with Certainly Celery and Soft Suede. Here is my card .....
So, what do you think of my card? It's a little more "shabby" then I normally make but I'm kinda liking it. It's good to get out of our comfort zone sometimes, isn't it? I hope you can play along with us on the challenge this week. Make sure and use the keyword THT021 and add your card to Mr. Linky on the Treehouse Blog.
Thanks for stopping by today. I am so glad you came to visit. I'll talk to you soon.
and here's the wonderfully awesome as usual sketch from our host Mercy ......
Now I know you can't wait to play along with this sketch. When you do please use the keyword MTSC45and don't forget to add it to Mr. Linky on Mercy's blog. Now go look at the wonderful eye candy by the other DT members ......
Hello and welcome to Little Paper Shop Monday. We have a sketch challenge for you today, LPSC39. You are going to love this sketch today as it is a different shaped card, round. I really enjoyed making it. I used Katie Caroler and Christmas Tags from the Little Paper Shop. I just love this cute set. It reminds me of going caroling when I was a teenager. Katie has been colored with Copics and cut out and popped with dimensionals in front of the fence. I'm really getting a good start on my Christmas cards this year. Woohoo!! Here is my card ......
and here is the sketch ........
We hope you can play along with our sketch this week. When you upload to a public gallery make sure and use the keyword LPSC39. And don't forget there is a prize again this week. One lucky random winner will win the Christmas Tags stamp set. We all like to win free stuff, right? So come on out and join us. I know you are going to have fun. Now check out what the other DT members have come up with...........
Hello again. I made this card earlier in the week for this past Monday's MOJO Sketch MOJO109 and for some reason forgot to put it on my blog. Yeah, that happens sometimes. You may have already seen it on the Club Anya blog. Here it is ..........
This is another one of the images I colored while we were on our camping trip. I also used some ribbon I have had for a while but have never put on a card. It's black organdy twisted with small white pearls wrapped around. It adds a nice touch, doesn't it?
Thanks for stopping by again today. I love all my readers. I'll see you tomorrow.
Hello and happy Sunday. Today is going to be a family day for me. We are going to play Phase10, go to a Corn Maze this evening, play football, and then watch Flash Forward from this past Thursday since we missed it that night. Is anyone else as addicted to this show as we are? I can't wait for it to come on each week. It is definitely keeping me on the edge of my seat.
I told you he was precious, didn't I? I think this little Polar Bear is just a cutie patootie. The patterned paper matches this stamp and I got it a local scrapbooking store. It's made by Imaginisce too.
Thanks for stopping by today. Make sure and come back tomorrow for our sketch from the Little Paper Shop. I'll talk to you soon.
Hello and happy Saturday. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Mine has been great. Watching college football games, my hubby smoking ribs, my hubby and son home with me, life just doesn't get much better. Especially, when our team (Roll Tide!!!) won by the skin of their teeth against the Vols, but a wins a win, right?
I have a card for you today using Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge TESC88. I used a new stamp set I received a couple of weeks ago that is made by Taylored Expressions called Wings of Joy. I saw some amazing cards made by Taylor's design team and knew I had to have this set. It is so cute. I also put the main image on a new Nestie I just received called Peony. I colored the main image with my Copics and then added some Liquid Applique for snow on the birdhouse. Looks like winter time, doesn't it? Here's the card .........
I have another card that I made this evening for Jen's Sketch For You to Try so check back in the morning to see it. Thanks for stopping by today and THANKS A BUNCH FOR YOUR SWEET COMMENTS. They mean the world to me. I'll see you in the morning.
Hello and happy Thursday. It's time for another challenge from The Treehouse Blog and our challenge today is THT020. Our challenge today is to use some form of embossing. Easy peasy for me since I emboss on every card I make. I always stamp my main image with either Black Brilliance or Brown Momento ink and emboss them with Clear Embossing Powder. Love the way it makes the image pop and it's much easier to color also. I used the stamp set Autumn Blessings from Treehouse Stamps for this card. This set, along with several others, is on sale so make sure and go check it out. I just love the feel of fall: leaves, pumpkins, fall colors and this set covers it all. Here is my card .....
We hope you can come out and play with us today. When you upload to a public gallery make sure and use the keyword THT020 and don't forget to add your card to Mr. Linky on The Treehouse Blog.
Thanks for coming by today. I'll see you back here tomorrow.
Hello and happy Tuesday. You may not have known but I have been missing in action since last Wednesday afternoon. We went camping for six days and were without cell phone and internet service. YIKES!!! I did have some posts automatically scheduled while I was gone but not for Friday, Saturday or Sunday. I hope you missed me as much as I missed being here and talking to you and reading your very kind comments. This camping trip of ours had been planned since the Spring so when I made the Club Anya Design Team it did not dawn on me at first that our trip would be on the same week as my first release with The Farm. Do you know how sad I was to not be there for the Release Party over on PCP? I was actually very upset because I was really looking forward to chatting with you guys. My precious husband even asked me if I wanted to cancel the camping trip. He really loves me!! But I couldn't do that as my son was really looking forward to his fishing time. On that note, I want you to know that I WILL NOT miss the next five releases while I am on this team. This is a dream come true for me and I don't want to miss a thing. Note: I want to thank my most bestest (southern slang inserted here LOL) friend Mercy for taking care of my blog last Thursday during the Blog Hop and picking the winner for the stamp set from the contest we had. Hugs Mercy. Love you girl!!!
Now, on to Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge MTSC44. Since I feel like I missed so much with Club Anya this past week (bless me, LOL) I made another card using the Xmas Sweeties set from The Greeting Farm. This is such an adorable couple, don't you think??? I paired it with some candy cane patterned paper from their Merry Merry Paper Pack. If you get this stamp set, and believe me you will love it, then you have to have that paper pack too. They go together like "peas and carrots", isn't that what Forrest says? LOL. Kidding aside, I love each and every piece of this paper to use with my Christmas cards. Look for more of it from me in the near future. Now, here is my card .......
I used the Dots embossing folder on the background panel behind Mr. and Mrs. Claus and then added some Liquid Pearls to the dots to make it look like snow. I used the snowflake and sentiment from the Keep Cozy set, I love pairing stamp sets up. The couple have Diamond Stickles on the fur of their coats for some added sparkle and of course if you saw my "Signature Style" from the Blog Hop you will see that I used "my Copics, my Nesties, a Border Punch, and Rhinestones. I LOVE bling!!! Now, here is a pic of the sketch ......
We hope you can play along with us this week. When you upload your card to a public gallery please use the keyword MTSC44. And don't forget to upload it to Mr. Linky on Mercy's blogtoo. Now go check out the other DT Member's blogs ....
Hello and happy Monday. That means it's time for another challenge from the Little Paper Shop blog. Our challenge this week is a sketch and the challenge is LPSC38. I used the Merry & Bright set. This is a small set and it has so many possibilities. Go check it out at the Little Paper Shop store and all the other amazing Christmas sets. Now here is my card ......
and here is the sketch .......
We hope you'll get out those sets and play along with our challenge this week. When you upload to a public gallery make sure you use the keyword LPSC38. I can't wait to see what you create with this awesome sketch.

Hello and happy Wednesday. We have made it to our final day of sneak peeks from The Greeting Farm. So, are you ready for the last wonderfully awesome set? It is unbelievable and here is my card .......
So, what do you think of Mommy Anya and Daddy Ian? Aren't they incredible? The releases this month are just over the top in my opinion. How can they just keep getting better and better each month? But every month I'm just more amazed. I just adore this set. It comes with 3 sentiments, "New Parents", "Mommy", and "Daddy". On my card I used the sentiments "Congrats" and "It's a Girl" from the Oh Baby set. This is an awesome addition to that cute baby set.
Alright, head on over to the other DT members blogs and check out their wonderfulness. These girls I get to work with are just amazing. Go give them some love please.
Are you ready for the Blog Hop tomorrow? Be back here in the morning when the Blog Hop goes live for a FUN GAME.

Hello and happy Tuesday. Are you ready for Sneak Peek #2? Well get ready for more absolute cuteness from The Greeting Farm. Here is my project and I have 2 different pics of it. One is the front of the card and the second pic is the back of the card. One more time, ARE YOU READY????? Here is the card and a cute Lollipop gift to go with it .....
and the back of the Dorothy card .......
Today's set is Club Anya's Signature set. There are 3 of TGF's first digi images that they have turned it to rubber and they are about half the size of the regular Anya's. The one on my project is Dorothy. The other two are Red Riding Hood and Alice in Wonderland. You can probably see the other two Anya images on the other DT members blogs. I want you to notice the back of my card. This stamp set is so awesome. See the stamp that says "handmade by:"? Love it for the back of my cards. And look at the Club Anya Crest image. Oh my!! I am so excited to have this Signature set and to be able to personalize my Anya/Ian creations. Don't you love it? Also included is a TGF logo stamp that you can probably see on one of the other DT member's blogs also.
This set also has the sentiments "to:" and "from:" that I used on my Lollipop gift. What a cute way to make a gift tag, project, etc. The sentiment on the card "Member of the Lollipop Guild" is computer generated and was thought up by one of my bestest friends and DT member for TGF, Mercy Kerin. I know you all know this gal. LOL!!
Now go check out the other DT members blog for more scrumptious eye candy.
One more sneak peek tomorrow. I know you wished it was tomorrow already. LOL. You are so going to love this last set. TOTALLY AWESOME is all I have to say. See you in 24 hours for the last sneak peek and then our awesome Blog Hop with tons of prizes on Thursday. Woohoo!!!
