Anyone For Anya? Sketch 4

I can't believe that this is my first entry in the Anyone for Anya? blog. I love Anya and I always have good intentions of entering, but life gets in the way!! I just loved working with this clean and fun sketch!! Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!!!

Card Patterns- Last Post for the Night!!

Ok... I was a busy girl today!! Here is one last post before I call it a night. This card is for the sketch at CardPatterns. I just loved working with this sketch. Using panels is so much fun for me! The paper is from Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey. The adorable image is designed by Victoria Case. Good Night my blogging friends!!! I hope to get some more craftng in tomorrow!

Snow Friends

I was really intrigued by the current sketch over at Friday Sketchers. I decided to flip it and use it that way. It was so much fun to work with!! These cute little guys are another new release over at Fresh Brewed Designs. These little Snow Friends reminded me of my kiddos- until I heard them fighting when I was coloring this! Anyway, I just love this image... too darn cute!

A Really Fast Christmas Gift!

Tonight I was at Walgreens picking up some pictures and I saw these photo snow globes. I didn't do much to them. I just handwrote the date and stamped a few snowflakes, but I know my parents and in-laws will really like them!! Just thought I would share this quick and easy idea!!

Happy Birthday to My Baby!!

My baby turned three today!! Even though I feel a little sad that she is getting so big, I just loved watching her have so much fun today!! We went to a local pizza parlor where the kids played games and all of our family ate dinner. It was such a nice time and I know Maddi had a blast! She had so much fun that she fell asleep on the ride home holding one of her new toys!! Where did the time go???? I ask myself that every time one of my kids have a birthday. I made Maddi this card using the sketch from Card Patterns. At the moment her favorite color is green so I used it for her! This is one of TGF's new images... too cute!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!

This is Gonna be SNOW much fun!!

Heather from Fresh Brewed Designs is celebrating her release of some adorable images with a challenge that will be lasting ALL weekend! I have been so blessed to be able to help Heather start up her new business. She is one of the most caring, loving, and honest people that I know and I am so happy to call her my friend! One example of this is the amazing snow family image she created for me. She asked me a few questions about my family and what they like to do. From there she created a snow family that resembeled mine!! Here is a card I made with this amazing gift. To make it even more special, I used the sketch that little Miss Hannah (Heather's daughter) made for the challenge Heather is having this weekend.

The second card I used the new Snow Angel image. I used the current Sketch Saturday sketch to create this card. Thanks so much for stopping by today and be sure to head on over to Heather's Blog to check out all the fun she has planned for this weekend!

ICSC #41

I really love all the detail Dawn added to this week's sketch at Inspirational Card Sketch Challenges. This was great to work with!! The DT over there has amazing cards that are sure to inspire you. I used my new Angel Cake and Mr. Snowman digi image from Fresh Brewed Designs for this card. Isn't it the cutest?? I love these little ladies so much that I had to buy all of the ones I didn't have from Heather's shop right away. Yes, I am addicted to her designs!!! Thank you for stopping by my blog today!!

It's That Time Again!

Yep! Welcome to another Sunshine Monday!! For this card I chose this adorable "Snow Day" by S&G. It is hard to believe that snow will be on the ground in St. Louis soon when it was 80 degrees and beautiful yesterday. I really am not a snow kinda girl, but I do love this Sunshine and Giggles Stamp- it just makes me smile! Janice has created a new blog for S&G and you can find it here. There is also a DT call going on for this amazing stamp company and you will find all of the details on the new blog. You don't want to miss it!! Thank you for spending part of your day with me!
