Happy Last Day of May! Can you believe it? I am definitely not ready for Summer. I am a Winter Gal! Our temperatures here in Texas have been in triple digits for the last few weeks! Only makes me think this Summer is going to unbearable. Hard to imagine why I head to Colorado every year! I can't wait to get up there this year! I smell fly fishin', mountain air, cool breezes OMGosh I can't wait! I have doctor's appointments through the 15th so I am hopefully planning on making it to the cabin by at least the 20th!

The Outlawz Color Challenge Group's color challenge this week is to use the colors, moss green, queenly lilac, and deep plum. The twist to the challenge is to incorporate a tag into your project. I made this card to enter the challenge. Although simple I think it turned out well. The Outlawz is an awesome Group with daily challenges. I hope you will rush right over and check them out! You will love them! A great bunch of Super Talented, Super Nice Ladies!

Oopsie! I read the Outlawz Color Challenge wrong! Rather than incorporate a tag into your project, you are to make a tag using the colors moss green, queenly lilac, and deep plum. I really like the simplicity of the card so I carried the theme into my tag. I hope you like it too! I used my Cricut Expression 2 Anniversary Edition to cut my tag. The stamp is Stampin' Up from the tag collection. I inked the stamp up with Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I used the 1" square punch and embossed it with a  folder also from Stampin' Up, the postage stamp punch from Stampin' Up, and the small tag punch is also Stampin' Up.

I have another card for the Ooutlawz Greetings Challenge which is all about animal or zoo patterns! How fun is that? I really love how this one came out!

This is the inside of the card!

I am working on some more challenges so back to work! Woooo Hoooo! It feels good to be creating again!

Good Wednesday Morning!

Kenny K Crafty Girlz Challenge is having a Design Team call. I prepared a page using Rock Dude for my entry. I printed the designer paper with my Cricut Imagine and the Imagine More Cartridge. I used Hannah Montana for the Rock Star and the little notes scattered about the page. I am not really a scrapbooker but really liked this image to prepare a page for my youngest son. He is such a talented musician and is in the process of building his 2nd guitar!

I used my beloved Copics to Color Rock Dude! I absolutely adore my Copics and they are perfect for Kenny K's images.

Wish me luck.... this would be like a dream come true!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I would love for you to leave a comment as I really value my peers opinions!

Hi Bloggers!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend! We had a relaxing weekend. Remembering our live and fallen veterans is very important here in the Good 'Ole USA! I have such respect for those that have fought for our country! My freedom lies in their ever capable hands. I thank every veteran or every member of our troops that I come in contact with. I think that is the least I can do. I am trying to get back into the swing of creating cards for Operation Write Home.  I spent most of my time coloring and trying to finish a few cards. I am  also working hard to get back into the challenges! 

Today I am posting a card that I made for CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge. In this challenge you are given selected freebies and the only catch is that you post a project using one of the freebies. My card is a Happy Birthday Card complete with a banana split inspired by Doodle Pantry. I think it looks yummy and have been craving a banana split all evening! lol I used my Cricut Imagine to print my designer paper and then cut it with my Spellbinders. I colored the image up with my Copics and added a dab of Dazzling Diamonds to the whipped cream. Red Satin from Stampin' Up and my Bow Easy for the gorgeous red bow. Happy Birthday Stamp is from Stampin' Up inked up with Versa Mark stamp pad and embossed with Christmas Red Embossing Powder. The stamp was then punched out with my Stampin' Up 1 3/4" circle punch.

Hi I am back! I did finish up one more card for the CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge! This little darling is Tooth Fairy from A Day For Daisies! I love their images and this one has to be one of my favs! I love fairies and hope all my friends will believe in their magic the way I do. Maybe this little darling will convince you! I hope so.

Isn't she just the cutest? I colored her with my Copics, embellished her with my swavorski crystals, stamped the stamp sorry I don't know who it is name on package, and embossed it with Zing white embossing powder. Designer paper was from my stash as was the ribbon.

I am entering Believe in Fairies in the CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge,
Simon Says DT Call and Anything Goes Challenge

I thank you for visiting my blog and would love for you to leave a comment.

Have a fantastic night! Hope to see you again soon!

Big Hugs!

Wowzer! May 28, 2012 I am so sorry I haven't kept up with my posts. I have been having health problems and just can't seem to get things done. I started having trouble breathing late last summer. I was unable to get into the pulmonary specialist until April 23rd. I waited almost 8 months to find out what is wrong. My right diaphragm muscle attached to my right lung is paralyzed. We don't have a clue as to why it is paralyzed. The way I understand it is it usually happens during a car wreck or surgery. Another cause can be a virus like Bell's Palsy. I am taking medications hoping that it is the latter. I am not whining as things could be so much worse. I just wanted my friends to know why I haven't been around much! Anywhos I try to get projects done but play out before I can finish them. I made up my mind that I am missing out what is fun in my life and have been working all weekend to finish this project.

My favorite place of all places is Color Me Creative Challenge Blog run by Suzanne Dean. Suzanne is one the most talented artists I have ever met and a very dear friend! The theme this challenge is pinks and greens. I also love Saturated Canary images by Krista Smith. I chose Nevaeh and colored her up with my Copics. I added Dazzling Diamonds by Stampin' Up to her petticoat. My paper I printed with my Cricut Imagine. I really like how she turned out and am entering her in Color Me Creative Challenge Blog.
