Cheers!

   Happy Thursday!  I hope you are having a great week.  I for one, am happy to be back on my feet.  My family and are are finally back on our feet after almost five days of a stomach bug...UGH!  The only thing worse than seeing your kids sick, is trying to take care of your sick kids when you are just as sick...Thankfully, the stomach bug seems to have passed and the kids are back at school and I am back to work....
    I did manage to color a bit and create a card for this weeks Stampotique Designers challenge hosted by: Carol Fox and here is what Carol has to say about this weeks challenge:

"I love strong colours that really pop on the page, so I ask you this week to feature Black, Pink and Purple on your make for the challenge this week."
 
I too love the colors that Carol chose, and I made a very simple card using Cheers for this weeks challenge.  I hope you will come play with us this week. :)

Stampotique Book Text Challenge

   Happy Hump Day!!!! I love Wednesdays, it's the middle of the week, I have Thursdays off, and it means the weekend is approaching.  It also means that it is Stampotique Originals Designer challenge day, and our host for this week is Corrie and here is what she has to say:
Hello everybody and happy Wednesday to you all!
"Today it is my turn to host the Challenge and I would like you to use book text. This is such a versatile material and when I get a bit stuck, I regularly reach for an old book to use the pages. I think everybody has an old book or magazine lying around to use. I can't wait to see what you come up with, but most of all have fun creating !!! 
Corrie x"
   This was a super fun challenge for me to create, as I love text paper. It is fun to use and can be used on anything. I used the Happy Lion stamp, which was in Stampotiques new release in September.  Isn't he adorable????  Head on over to the designers challenge blog and check out what the rest of the team did.  Have a great Hump day!

Going Grey With ScrapCreations Challenge: Pop It Up!




Happy Tuesday!  I can't believe it's October already, seems as though the weeks are flying by, and here we are in October, one of the most beautiful months of the year, here in New Hampshire.  Fall in New England is like no where else, the trees are stunning.... The pic above is from a hike my husband and I just did at Mt. Major in Alton Bay New Hampshire.  The view at the top was amazing, completely worth the 3 days of pain after...LOL...

     I haven't had a whole lot of time to stamp lately, as I am currently taking 3 classes this semester and time is limited, but I think it is important for me to take time to do what I love, which is getting inky!!! I am so thankful to have two groups that force me to create...One of the reason I am creating this week, is this weeks Pop It Up Challenge, and because I also would like to play in last weeks Stampotique Originals Masculine Challenge hosted by Kim, I was able to do both with this card.
I used Stampotiques Thinking of you and while it is hard to see, I popped up the dog and the lamp shade.  I used the masculine DP to cover Kim's fabulous challenge.  Hope on over and check out the amazing work by the DT!

Are you ready to see last weeks Fall challenge TOP 3???   Drumroll....

Going Grey With Scrap-Ceations Challenge: Fall

  Happy Tuesday!!!! My blog has been so lonely lately.  I have been crazy busy, with my son starting hockey, my daughter is beginning her gymnastics competition season, and not to mention the 3 classes I am currently taking.  There hasn't been a whole lot of time for crafting, but I did manage to get to cards together this week.  The card I created today is for this weeks Fall challenge.  I used a digi that I have had for some time now, and unfortunately, I don;t remember who designed it.  SO, this week I decided to go with a fall theme birthday card, as it is one of my dearest friends birthday.  Happy Birthday Pia!!!!!
   Last weeks "favorite embellishment" cards were awesome, and the TOP 3 are:

Happy Bird-day!


   Today is Wednesday and Wednesdays = Stampotique originals Designers Challenge day.

Kaz is our hostess this week and this is her challenge to you:

Napoleon once said that the English are a nation of shopkeepers.What he should have said is that we are a nation of animal lovers. Nearly everyone I know has got a cat or dog, a pet rabbit or bird, and I know that my Stampotique teamies have their pets too. So this week we're celebrating the fur and feathers and I challenge you to create something with either animals or birds. So put your best paw forward and bring it on.

Have fun!
 
I have been roaming pinterest, probably more than I should be, and I came across this adorable card by Darlene Devries and I have just been waiting for an opportunity to give it a try.  It is been a long time since I have made anything but a typical card, so this was fun and a nice change.  Hope you like it, and I hope you will join us at Stampotique for this weeks challenge.  Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

Supplies:

Birdy up stamp

Going Grey With Scrap-Creations challenge: Favorite Embellishment!


  Happy Tuesday!!! I am a bit late posting today and I apologize for that. I just ran out of hours in the day!  This week, Peggy picked "favorite embellishment" for the challenge.  I am definitely someone who is embellishment challenged, and honestly, I only really use 2 embellishments on my cards, Flowers and gems. If I could just color and stick my picture on some DP, I would.  Really, I just like to color and play with paper...LOL... With this weeks challenge being open to so many ideas, I went with a digi image I have had for a long time, and unfortunately, I have someone to give this card to.  One of my coworkers (young), was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and she has been so strong through the process thus far, and I just want to let her know that I think she is amazing and I am here for her, so this card is for her.
          My card this week was inspired by this card by  Theresa , and you can see her card here. I used a saturated Canary image, and went with quote I found on line.  Simple, yet powerful! Obviously, I went with my go to embellishments...again, so challenged!

                            Last weeks back to school projects were awesome, and the TOP 3 are:
