Hello! So glad you could stop by today! Today I am the Guest Designer over at
 If you don't know Carri--she is a wonderful, creative card maker, who I have followed for some time now; and I love her blog!
Carri sells SKITTLES, which I also Love--so, I have made an organization system for them, to make them easier to get to!
I do daycare in my home, so I saved up and washed-out the plastic baby food containers--I knew I could find something to do with them! They were perfect to put my SKITTLES in! I then took my DYMO  and added the names of the colors  to the outside of each container..later I also added 1 SKITTLE to the outside of each container with my Hot glue gun too, it is now so easy to see what color you are looking for! (Holly helped out with this idea) Thanks Holly!
 My hubby put together a few scraps and built the storage unit for me--then I painted and added some Designer paper from My Minds Eye, called Love Nest.  I made the SKITTLE sign with MY Creative Times Build a banner set and also the Label Font set-didn't it come out cute?! So there you go....simple, yet ORGANIZED!
I even have enough extra room (until Carri comes up with more colors) to organize my Tim Holts Inks.

I tried to get a bit closer, so you can actually see what it says: (click on the photo and it will be clearer)

Now, I have also made a card for today to show off how the SKITTLES look on your cards/projects.

I just had to use a little BEE...isn't he cute? He is from Create a Critter. I added a wobble, so he wobbles and looks really happy, and I have used my Sunshine Yellow SKITTLES!
So, gotta run, but make sure to check out Carri's blog and order yourself  up some of these fun and fabulous SKITTLES!
Thanks for stopping by today--see you Later!

I actually got time after helping Brittany get all her items out of storage yesterday, to make a few cards.
These are all simple and were fast to make, but I like how they turned out.
I actually got 7 made-but a few are real similar to the ones I am showing-and I only had time to take one pic! My daycare child will be showing up any minute.
Have a great day!

Squigglefly Birthday Card ...

Hi! Did you all have a wonderful weekend? I did!
Today was my son Dakota's (Cody) 18 birthday...I can't believe how fast time goes by. I have made a birthday card for my niece, who's birthday is in a couple of days. I used a digi  from Squigglefly called Princess In The Mirror, by artist Diane Carubia.

I colored her up with my copics, used some Skittles, a few flowers, a brad from my stash, and a 
SU sentiment stamp-also used my white gel pen for a few freckles on her cheeks-and some glitter glue on her crown.
Thanks for stopping by--I am helping my daughter Brittany move to her own apartment tomorrow. : (
I will sure miss her being at home!!

Squigglefly Challenge #13-Lovely Liquids

Hi! Hope you all had a wonderful EASTER! We didn't do much--but that was fine with me!
This weeks challenge over at the Squigglefly Challegne Blog is Lovely Liquids--- make a card that uses liquid in some way - could be using an image that has water, using liquid alcohol inks for your backgrounds, or liquid crystal lacquer...stop on over and check out the inspiration brought to you by Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals this week!
So, I have used 2 of Squigglefly's new images (sneek peeks) by Cheryl Alger called Quiet Moments Boat and Quiet Moments Inner Tube-they come in a set with another image, and a sentiment. There will be a new release coming out next Saturday--so make sure to go check them all out!!
I used Stickles on my water to make it shiny--I cut out the innertube and placed it around my sentiment and added a little bit of twine. I also added a few Skittles to my card-which can be found HERE.
Thanks for stopping by!
