Case it Tuesday with The Cutting Cafe

Hi all!
I have made this card to enter into the Case it Tuesdays with The Cutting Cafe!
We were to case it by using Orange, Red, Black and White.
Here is the card I made-I used the adorable set called: A Bunch Of Monsters and the sentiment used was also from that set.
I will send this one to my niece and nephew--they will just love it!

Challenge card for The Cutting Cafe's Case it Tuesday

Hi--I am really down to the wire on this one! I meant to get it done last night and then it just didn't happen.
So we were to case a card made by Julia--which you can see here. I used The Cafe's-Searching for the perfect Pumpkin file, and used some SU stamps for the background. Hope you like it--and there is a new challenge up as of today (Tuesday)--so make sure to go on over and "CASE" it out!

Don't forget to enter my Small Halloween Blog Candy--only 5 have entered and it ends Friday-so your chances are pretty good, at this point! Check it out HERE.

A Heartfelt card

This card is going out to a lady whom I have never met, her name is Beverly. She stopped at the scene of a horrible accident that one of my brothers best friends Dave was in, about a week ago. He was on a motorcycle--and  from what I understand, he hit the back side end of a semi truck going in the opposite direction--and he has completely lost his arm! This lady happened past and she was a nurse--Thank GOD--she saved his life!! Between her and one of her male family members-they were able to control the bleeding enough to keep him alive until EMS got there!! She and her family deserve a medal of honor--he is such a good kid-(and probably only about 39 years old)-I am so happy she was driving by at that moment!! It will be long process for him to learn how to do everything one handed, but at least he is alive!! I have added an angel to the card I am sending her-because she is most certainly his angel!
my cute little image is from Lori by Designs! The sentiment is from another image she has as well, and fits perfectly--as it does make my heart smile to know there are still people like this out there!!!

CCR Sports challenge and Squigglefly

Hi everyone! Wheww...what a week! Today we went for another visit to Grand Rapids to see the Dr. about Emily's arm--she got a pretty good report, but the Dr. does want to see her again in 6 months. She has a large amount of bone growth on her elbow, and they want to watch it closely to make sure it doesn't affect her growth plate. I have been trying to work on this page for days now, and am so glad to see it finally finished...I really like how it turned out! I have made this sports page for the challenge over at: Creative Cutter Room, that I found from Carri's blog. I used the cricut for the all of the cut-outs except for the adorable little cheerleader!! She is a special digi-Rah Rah Rhonda-as she was made for me by Squigglefly's  Chesney Young the first time around when I was on their DT.

Here is a better pic of Rah Rah Rhonda! Isn't she just perfect for any Cheerleader scrapbook page!!

And here is a pic of my little Cheerleader-Emily!
Hope to see you soon! While we were away today, we got the opportunity to stop real quick at the scrapbooking store --so I have bought just a couple extra goodies to give away--so make sure to check back often!

A Challenge Card

Hi all! I have made this card for the very first Challenge going over at: LadyLuvBug's Blog! I have remade a card similar to one I had made when I was doing SU--but looking at the one from way back then--it was pretty plain and very simple...I like this version much better!I have used SU stmap set: Autumn Days... just by adding the extra DP papers and the doodling, and that fun leaf brad really spruces this new card up--and the old version did not have a sentiment either--which is part of the challenge!! The challenge was to make a Birthday or Anniversary card using fall colors. The 12th is also Janets Blog-A-Versary, so make sure to stop by and tell her HI!
The prize for this challenge? At the end there will be a drawing for a stamp set from the wonderful and talented Miss Emma of the  My Creative Time Blog.  You can check out all her delicious stamp sets HERE. If you want to get in on this challenge--better hurry--it only runs through the 12th! Have a great week!!
