Color Dare 62

Good Morning!
 It's time for another Color Dare Challenge!
This week Riley has challenged us with these
colors.... baja breeze, ruby red and whisper white!
 This is our inspiration piece

When I was creating my card I was in a very
abstract state of mind.... I think it was painting
fatigue! LOL!
My card base is whisper white layered with 
baja breeze and dp from a mat stack. My
 focal image is from awash with flowers. 
Pretty CAS, but I like it! Pop over to 
Color Dare and play along!
Have yourself a great day!

Spring Flowers!

Good Morning!
 I am so finished painting! Sue was right the payoff is
 awesome! I just sit in my chair and go WOW! I have 
 a fresh clean house YEA! Now I can get back to the
business of stamping! Speaking of that it's Tuesday...
Tuesday is my day to post for Artful INKables. So
from here on out on Tuesday mornings you will see
Artful INKables wonderful stamps at work! LOL!
Now that I'm done painting I can get back to Mojo
Monday... I combined my Tuesday post with the sketch
from Mojo Monday!

 I used the "In My Garden "set for this card. I stamped my 
 sentiment , masked it and stamped the flower pot image.
I love how it turned out! My card base is chocolate chip
layered with very vanilla and sending love dp. The leaves
 around my flowers were punched with the new bird punch
from SU. Have yourself a great day!
PS I forgot to mention that it's time for a new "Think Ink"
challenge ! Pop over and join in... it's a fun one!

Eggs-Tradorinary Find!

Good Morning!
 It's Magical Monday time! This week Sue has set the challenge!
 She wants us to create an Easter basket! How fun is that?

 This is one cute little image! Eggs-Traordinary find is 
fun to work with! I printed the image 3 times , different sizes 
and flipped! Aren't those bunnies just to cute sharing their 
egg? I colored with copics in spring colors. My tulips are
 made using the new bird punch from SU. My basket
 was made with nestibilities. The tutorial can be found here.
Be sure and check out Paper Cupcakes... Nina has new
images available! Pop over to TMITA and play along, I 
would love to see what you come up with! Have a great
 day... I have a little more painting to do and I'm done...
 till fall anyway! 

Final GD Post!

Good Morning!
 This is my final post as guest designer for CCS :( 
 It has been great fun working with Laura! She is such
 a great lady! Thanks so much Laura! As my final post
 I decided to use sentiments from two sets! I've created
 a set of note cards!

These were quick and simple to create and would make
 a great gift! Which is what I am using them for! I will make
 a cute little box to go with them! I used sentiments from 
 "Hello Hunny " and " Time for Prayer". Thanks so much
 for Laura for this wonderful opportunity!

Mojo 131

 stamps. I am entering this in these challenges:

Who Me.... Scrapbook!

Good Morning All!
 I have a couple of scrapbook pages to share with you!
I have to tell you... I'm no scrapbooker! Our faithful 
 leader at AI is doing a show this weekend and called
 on her DT to make her something to showcase!

 I used the "Newborn Blessings " set! I stamped the baby twice
 to make a set of twins! This set is adorable in every way!

 My second page is of the baby in a bubble bath! My picture
isn't very good! The sentiment says splish - splash... so cute!
That's it for me today! See you tomorrow!

Hello Hunny!

Good Morning Friends!
I'm back with my 3rd post as Guest Designer for 
A Fairy Creative Place! Is this month flying by or 
what? I can't believe my month with Laura is almost 
over :(  When I first found Creative Clear Stamps
fell in love with the wonderful sentiment stamps!
They can stand alone or be paired with any stamp
from any company..... they are paired best with

I used a sentiment from "Hello Hunny" as my focal point I love the dp which 
did most of the work on this card! I mimicked the layout for the inside and used
another sentiment from the same set!

Creative Clear Stamps are just plain wonderful to work
with! Be sure and come back on the 24th for the blog
hop. You can bet the new design team will knock your
socks off with their projects! See you again next week!

I am Soooooooo Tired of Painting!

Here is some before and during pictures of my craft room! 
It's not a big room and it used to be DH hideout so it's 
UGLY blue!
As you can see... it's very messy and cluttered! I am painting
the walls today and purging everything before I put it back together!
Here is  a picture after I got the ceiling painted!
Well I'm off to get groceries so I can come home and paint! LOL!
