Strength & Hope!

I just had to play with my new stamp set!!!
Here's a card I made for POM's MTC7-Ribbon. Yes another great challenge on Jen's blog and I got on it right away,I knew what I wanted to do and used some left overs at the same time. So if you have created something with ribbon,why not enter it in this challenge!

Thanks Jen for yet another fun challenge!

I just love this new set from SU,it is one that will be used often. Unfortunately we know so many family and friends that have been touched with this evil illness (cancer) and with purchasing this set,SU will give $2. to the Cancer Society with each set purchased. So if you haven't gotten your set yet...get on it,it's for a great cause!
Until next time my friends!

Oh Bliss,look at what I've won!!

Hope you haven't forgotten about me,lol! I just had some yucky moments,got ready for camping season and alot more excuses which i'm sure you don't want to hear about. But I have to get out of this rutt and keep going.

So what better way than to receive this fabulous set in the mail from Jen's challenge. She puts on these great challenges and not many people join,so if you like challenges and I know many of you out there do...why not check her blog out. You won't be sorry to visit her great blog,she does awesome and beautiful work,so head on over there! Hurry Hurry!!!!

And I do have a card to show,which we made a stamp class a couple weeks ago,a sympathy card made with all SU procucts.
Now I'm off to play with the new SU Strength & Hope set.
They are having a promotion with every set sold they will donate $2.oo to the cancer society. We all know someone that has been touched by that dreadful desease,so I will be making a class with that set.Off to work I go!!!!
Have a fabulous day my friend!

Happy Father's Day !

Happy Friday!!!!

Here's an easel card that we made at Stamp Night on wednesday. I wanted to make a Father's Day card and boy oh boy,I don't have any Man Stamps!!!
So I went with Loads of Love set and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. We used the brayer in barely banana & then went at the top used crushed curry. Added some brads for the tire caps and also the hardware for the inside of the card.

I'll be away for the weekend so no posting or visiting for me.

Birdie flying to a challenge!

Here's my tweetie from Doodle Pantry again! I just love this bird,he makes me smile everytime I see him!

I'm entering this cutie in the MTC5 Challenge:DEW DROPS, I know, like Jen said,they are old,but why not use the ones we have. So I made the sky from sponging with a template I made myself so that my little bird looks like he's falling from the sky. And used a scrap to run through my label nestie instead of a ribbon and the sentiment is from SU set "Bliss",so are the cs & punch.Oh and if you go to Jen's blog,there's also a nice FREE SENTIMENT you can download!!

So I had a great evening with 2 ladies at my stamp night,
we made 2 cards which was lots of fun and yapped yapped yapped!

Well,tomorrow the weekend is upon us once again and DH & I are leaving saturday for a short weekend get away to visit my friend Anne. Oh I can't wait to see her face,it's a surprise!!! Until tomorrow!

A little set for a friend.

Hi there everyone! Hope you all had a Wonderful Mother's Day to all you Moms out there!
Here it was sunny but chilly,I brought my Mom some nice decorations at the cemetary and had my cry. Today is a better day!
Thank You for your kind comments yesterday!

Here is a little set of Thank You cards I made for my Mentor.I use a nestabilitie to create the shape of the card and added the Butterfly stamp from SU on the envie.
She doesn't follow my blog so I'm safe to post this. Her family is celebrating her 10th Transplant Anniversary on sunday the 15th and it is also her Birthday!!! So guess who we'll be surprising on the 15th!!! Oh I can't wait! So I'm putting together a basket of all kinds of things,note books,candle,candies,cup and those butterflies i made a while back. I need a few more things to put in there but when I'm all done,I'll take a pic to show you.

It's an 8 hr drive from here but it'll be worth the drive! I was talking to her last weekend and was telling her that the weekend of the 15th we'll be opening up our camper for the season but it's not true,hehe!!! I'm so excited,it'll be really quick,drive there saturday,the party is on sunday and we come back monday. My DH offered to drive me there and to do this,he's the best!

Anyways,those Thank you cards will be going in that basket as well.There's only four but she'll put them to good use. She loves hand made things!

Have a great day!

It's a beautiful sunny day to bring some flowers to my mom so off I go!!!!


It keeps getting better!

Happy Mother's Day Weekend To All!

My this is such a WONDERFUL weekend!

It was our 11th Wedding Anniversary yesterday so DH and I went on a dinner date and then went to a local comedy play which we enjoyed so much.
We hadn't gone a date in so long,why do we wait for an occasion I don't know. But we'll def have to do this more fun.

We planned to go to our camp ground this morning to set up the outside stuff,pull out the extension and putter around,so I did a bit of blog surfing before head out of course and as I was visiting Jeanette's blog,I read on and find out that I WON her BLOG CANDY!!! Now that's the way to start your saturday!

If you haven't been on Jeanette's blog,you should head on out there,she does AMAZING work! Thanks again Jeanette!!!

Now enough yapping from me,lol! On to my card...Another cutie from Doodle Pantry. I just love this bird,he just puts a big smile on my face. I colored this one in a light blue,added a bit of yellow in his wing and tail and sponge yellow all around the image. He's popped up on 3 nesties and then I used the iron fence MS punch. The sentiment is also from Doodle Pantry punched out with SU punches.Added some bling again and voila!

Hope you all have a Wonderful Mother Day Weekend to all you MOMs!!

Tweet Happy Birdie!

Here's a card I made for a Challenge at Doodle Pantre DPDC12,it's a pretty easy challenge to follow. All you have to do is to use one of their digis. I had purchased this one a couple weeks ago,just LOVE him.
This card is for a cancer survivor and she went for a check up and had good news so I think this is perfect! It's a precolored image,oh too cute!

So if you want to play along,they are giving out a free image just to play along,so go ahead and visit them,they have some new releases today that are so precious! Doodle Pantry is where to go!

Now I'm going to play some more,lol! Have a good day my friends!
