SO Excited!

Last night when I got home from work I had the best surprise!! I had an email from Heather and Cassandra from Doodle Street asking me to join the DT!! I am just in love with all of the images released so far from Doodle Street and Fresh Brewed Designs. Now I get to help promote both of these lovely ladies and their companies. Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity!! The challenge for this week is to make a Get Well or Thinking of You card. This card was made using all SU! designer papers and card stock. This adorable little owl (available at Fresh Brewed Designs) was colored with Copic Markers. Well, it is hump day... half way till the weekend!! Enjoy the rest of your week!!!

Delightful Sketches- Trick or Treat!

Well, I guess I need to say that I am not going to have time to post every Friday!! I said that this past week, and I actually got more done than I have in over a month!! This is a card I made today (in between loads of laundry!) for the sketch at Delightful Sketches challenge blog. I used this oh-so-adorable Halloween bear image from Wendy's digi store, Digital Delights. It is the current FREEBIE!! I just love all of the images on this site, and hope to buy some more soon! Ok... I honestly think this is it for me until later in the week. I hope you all have had a great weekend!

Save the Candy Corn!

When it comes to candy, candy corn is not one of my favorites. But when it comes to images, this one sure is! I just fell in love with Heather's Don't Eat Candy Corn image. You can find this and so many other adorable images at her new digi shop, Fresh Brewed. I made this card using the image for today's challenge over at Caardvarks. It sounds like they have lots of exciting things planned for the next few days!

Doodle Street Sketch Challenge

Ok, so I lied! I am going to get to post again before next week. Yahoo! This card is for the Doodle Street Sketch Challenge. I used this cute little Owl Family image from Freshly Brewed. When I saw this, I knew I had to have it. It just really reminds me of me and my three kiddos. I had lots of fun working with Cassandra's super fun and clean sketch. I can't wait to see what else these ladies have up their sleeves, because so far their new venture has been such a blast!

Your Day!

Dawn at ICSketches has created yet again another amazing sketch for us to follow. I just love this one!! (Not that I don't always LOVE her work!!) I used my new SU! DS papers called Thoroughly Modern. I am just lovin' these yummy colors. Does anyone recognize this adorable image?? It is called Rowlty and you can find it at Heather Dennis' new online Digi Shop, Fresh Brewed. So stinkin' cute!! Well, have a wonderful weekend my friends. Mine is going to be a super crazy one so I don't think I will have time to post until next week.

Doodle Street DT Call Card #2

Wow, it was quite a day! I worked a really looooong day and then came home to find that our dog got out. So we spent about 45 minutes chasing Bella around our street. She thought it was a fun game.... me, not so much! I was happy when my dear hubby told me he would take care of dinner, which gave me time to work with Cassandra's freebie from Doodle Street. I just love this pretty little flower!! It made such a nice addition to this card. I am going to enter this into the DT Call at Heather and Cass' new blog, DoodleStreet! Maybe, just maybe I will get to work with the new sketch they have up. Wouldn't that be nice???!! For now it is off to help with homework and give baths!!!!

A FairyTale and Some Pictures!

Woo Hoo!! I finally was able to make a card tonight for ICS!! I have been more than super busy since school has started. My new preschool class is adorable, but they are wearing me out! I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted... I was totally spoiled this summer. I used SU's Afternoon Tea for the DP and the sentiment is also by SU. I am not sure if you can tell, but I sprayed the paper to give it a little sparkle. This card is going to be for my cousin's wedding shower next week. She has been through a lot in her life, and I am so happy that she has found someone to make her truly happy. I really hope she likes it as much as I enjoyed making it for her!! I have also added a couple of pictures of Allison and her friends from a birthday party we went to on Saturday. Aren't they just too much?!

We are back from our fun trip to the lake this weekend. It was jammed packed for sure! Yesterday I actually got to go running with my dog... ALONE and it felt so good. I got to really let out some stress and think for awhile. I really needed it! When we got home today I told myself I was just going to unwind, but of course I found myself doing laundry and other chores... I finally made it to my craft room to make this card for Friday Sketchers. It was a fun sketch!! I flipped it to fit this adorable image. This is Autumn by Victoria Case. Have a beautiful week!
