Tommy and Hannah Belle Fresh Brewed Designs Hop!

Yea! Today is the big day!! If you have come from Catherine's blog then you are in the right spot. If not, start over at Callie's blog where the fun begins!! Heather has designed so many amazing images for her online digi shop, Fresh Brewed Designs. She launched her Hannah Belle images (inspired by her adorable daugheter, Hannah) last month and has added even more!! Now to top that off she has added a Tommy line. You guessed it, her amazing son, Tommy was the inspiration for these!

How cute is the image on my first card? It is called Hannah Belle and Tommy Reading. I think they look so sweet sharing a favorite story! The second card is created with the image Tommy is a Superhero. Is it not adorable!!?? I used the sketch from Get Sketchy this week to make this card. You have a chance to win some free FBD images just by playing a simple and fun game. Each person has a secret word on their blog. All you have to do is collect them in order and then mail your answer to Heather. Her email address is on her blog. Good luck and have fun! My secret word is SUGAR. Now you need to head on over to Barb's blog to continue the fun!!

Chibi Cupcakes and a Couple of Fun Challenges!

Tonight I got to try out two new Challenge Blogs. The first one is Eat Sleep Stamp- this is where I got the sketch from. I was over on the blog to check out my wonderful friend, Heather's card (which won last week! woo hoo, you go girlie!) and just fell in love with the sketch!! The second challenge I am entering this card into is I Love Digi- a brand new challenge blog. Their first challenge is to use pink and a digital stamp!! I was so excited to use my new digi from TGF, Chibi Cupcakes. I just love her. So cute! My good friends Dee and Callie are designers for this blog and I wanted to support my girls on their first week!!

Oh, Mama! Some Exciting News!

Hi! Well, for those of you who haven't heard..... I'm pregnant!! My husband and I will be welcoming baby #4 in the early fall. This was a total suprise. In fact, I don't know the exact due date, but will after an ultra sound tomorrow!! We were in total shock at first, but now that we have adjusted are SO excited! I will be sure to keep you posted on our "little" progress!!

To celebrate my big news, I made a card using Fresh Brewed Designs' Oh, Mama! image. I have a feeling this is what I will look like when our bundle of joy arrives! This card is for the current challenges at Get Sketchy and Cupcake Craft Challenges. I am off to put on my jammies and get some sleep. It is amazing how something so small can take everything out of you! Good night my friends!

Crafty Creations Stitching Challenge

Hi there! Wow, this post is really late! I am sorry I haven't been around much, but my FIL is still in the ICU after open heart surgery, and we have been pretty crazy lately. Please continue to say some prayers for him... thanks so much!

This week our challenge at Crafty Creations is to use any form of stitching on your projects. I was really pressed for time with everything going on so I chose to do some faux stitching! This week we are being sponsored by Stamps and Smiles and the winner will get this adorable Love Birds set!! Hope to see you at Crafty Creations this week!

Tellen's Place: Weekly Wednesday Challenge #5

I am so glad that Terry from Tellen's Place posted that there was still time to do her challenge for the week!! I had every intention of posting this sooner, but I had lots going on this week. My FIL is in the hospital and is in stable but serious condition. Please keep him in your prayers!! My husband is very close to his dad and is really having a hard time.

Ok... this challenge was to use a Valentine theme and use at least 5 hearts. I just looooove the freebie that Terry had up for us to use this week. This diva is simply divine!! Thanks Terry for such a fun challenge and amazing image!!

Our Creative Corner Sketch Blog

I was surprised to see that the OCC sketch challenge has moved to its very own blog!! I love these sketches, and now they will be super easy to find! This week's sketch was perfect for a card I needed to make for a swap in the SU! group I am in. We meet once a month to have a stamp camp and swap cards. This month's theme is wedding/anniversary. We use all SU! products for this swap, so everything you see is SU!!! Now I only have 11 more to make! (That's the only thing I don't like about this... I really don't like making multiples of cards!! I just start to get bored after about 3!) Thanks for stoppin by! Have a beautiful weekend!

Thanks to everyone who played along in our One Year Anniversary Blog Hop last week!! We hope you had fun and that the winners all enjoy their prizes!!!! This week we are asking you to create projects that highlight "wings". When I first got working on this challenge I immediatly thought of this SU! set. I haven't used it in such a long time, but I just love it!! I am a sucker for a good butterfly set :)! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit Crafty Creations to see what the beautiful ladies on the DT have wating for you!!!!

FBD Sketch Challenge!!

I am so happy that I was able to play along with Heather's challenge on her blog. She has created a super pretty sketch to work with. The only rule is that you have to use a FBD image to play along. If you participate, you will have a chance to win one of Heather's new Bug images.... so adorable! Not only did I have time to make one card, but two!! Yay! I made the first one last night. When I first saw this Hannah Belle image I thought of this DP from Hobby Lobby. I made a special trip to pick it up to work with her! She reminds me so much of my girls. They just love to help me bake. I am going to use this card to send some recipes to a friend!!

I made the second card when I got home from work tonight. My friend dropped off my SU! order and I had to use my new sentiments, paper, and punch right away!! I had such a great time with Heather's sketch last night that I decided to use it again!! This is also a FBD Hannah Belle... isn't she just too sweet?!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope to get some more posts up in the next few days!
