SFC #17 Use Pink and Blue on your card or project

Hi all! It is Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals up this week to share their inspiration with you, over at the Squigglefly Challenge Blog! So,here is the card I have made this week-I have used one of the new images from Squigglefly called Spring Heart by Monica Estill. I thought it would add a little whimsy to make the bees blue and pink as well!
Don't forget that today is the last day to sign up for One a day in May too!! And believe me, you do not want to miss out on that!! Have a great week!

Hi again! Whoohoo-two posts in one day! Plus I re-arranged a bunch of things in my craft room to make it more organized--so excited!
I have made this card for the Squigglefly Challenge which is to make a Mothers Day card.

I have used the image Tulip Display and it is by artist Lynne Stansbery. Isn't it just gorgeous!
I really need to find a class to learn how to shade!
Well, tomorrow I have an interview--wish me luck!

Hi all! I just wanted to share some great news with you-I have been accepted as a DT member for The Cutting Cafe! I am very excited, and will be starting this new DT in May. Thank You Regina!! You can also check out my new team members for The Cutting Cafe on my sidebar.

Another quick fast card

I got a package in the mail today with the most awesome little homemade butterflies--so I just had to make another of these quick, fast cards so I could use one of them! Didn't this simple card just turn out so pretty!!? I love how the butterfly just adds such a soft statement! I used papers from a new Authentique paper pad that also arrived today-it is called Delightful. (I know...why in world am I ordering more paper?)
Hope you all have a great weekend!

The Cutting Cafe Bumblebee card

Hi all!
Hope your week is going wonderfully! Mine is...ever since I finally quit at the Post Office-I feel like a new person!!
On to my card today-you can only imagine how excited and thrilled I was to find this new file over at The Cutting Cafe!! It is a BUMBLEBEE BEEHIVE CARD FILE!!! : ) I LOVE IT!!

What a fun file--and so easy to cut out too--(my other computer isn't down here, and I just didn't feel like going up and getting and hooking it all up to my cricut so that I could use MTC)--so I cut it out!!

Fresh Brewed Digi day release

Hi all! I am so sorry I forgot to pre-post my card for today-I have had it done for days-and then got busy with Easter and my sons 17th Birthday party planning and forgot that I hadn't put it on my blog, and that it is already the 9th!!
Well, as you can tell from the title-it is a new release day for digi's over at Fresh Brewed Designs--the digi I picked to use is BEST BUDS. Isn't this just such a great image for those hard to make "guy cards"?!!

Squigglefly Challenge #13-Case a SQUIGGLEFLY DT Member-SFC1312

Hope everyone is well today--I have made a card for the Squigglefly challenge-except I just realized that the card I cased isn't really from a DT member-but, since Holly is such a big part of every aspect of our teams-I think she can count too!! So, Holly's card that I cased can be seen here. I made it my own, by switching up the layout a tiny bit by putting my image on the tall side instead of the short side. I LOVE this new image by Fawn Palmer, I believe it is actually a sneek peek for this Saturday's release over at Squigglefly. It is called Baby Bird Bath Time.
There have not been many entries in our Squigglefly challenge this week, so hurry and get entered-you will have a great chance of winning your own Squigglefly image! And while you are there, don't forget to pre-order your ONE A DAY IN MAY!! It is the best deal around, and so much fun!
Thanks for visiting me today--I always love to read your comments.
