Challenge # 35

Good Morning,

Challenge # 35 at A Spoon Full of Sugar is to make a baby card. I love baby cards....they make me feel so happy!! And I had a wonderful reason to make a baby card this week. I just found out that one of my best friends from high school, just had a baby girl this past Saturday!! My friend has been fighting with infertility for years, so this baby is a total miracle!! Stamps: Magnolia, SU warm words
Inks: Versafine black, prismacolors pencils and OMS
Paper: Georgia Pacific cs, Bazzill cs, Debbie Mumm baby girl dp
Accessories: prima flowers, dew drops, nestibilities labels 1, unknown brad, SU ribbon
I put glitter on the wings and buttons on the little girl with my wonderful glue pen.

I've had a busy few weeks lately. I am lucky enough to have a new job which I love!! But it's been really, really hard to find time to make cards. And with our year end being January 31st, I don't think it's going to get much better for a while. Unfortunately that means you may not be seeing me much. I hope you all don't forget me, and when I can, I will come back and hopefully have something to post for you! I want to thank each and every one of you who leave me a comment on my blog. You sure don't make it easy for a girl to slow down on her blogging, and I find that after posting a card...I'm always racing to the computer to see what someone has said about my creation! You all really make my day!!

I hope you all have a great week!!

Challenge # 34 Paper Piecing

Challenge # 34 at A Spoon Full of Sugar is paper piecing. Paper piecing is when you stamp an image, and then stamp it again on patterned paper, cut out parts of the image on the patterned paper and paste it on top of the other image. For this challenge, I paper pieced the dress, and all the bags.
I bought this stamp set over a year ago, and this is the first chance I've had to use it. Sometimes I think I own too many stamp sets!!
Stamps: Hanna stamps - But I need it clear stamp set.
Inks: Versafine black, SU basic black, SU creamy caramel
Papers: Georgia Pacific cs, Bazill cs, MME - Just Dreamy stack
Accessories: Brad, prima flower, lace from stash

Sorry I was away so long, last weekend me, my husband and my best friend, went to Watrous, SK - to the spa. If you would like to see exactly where we were, here is the link. It was absolutely awesome!! The water was so warm!! And I love that you float with no effort at all in the water! If you are close to the area...then I recommend that you check it out! The prices are reasonable, the food is amazing, and you can relax and let your troubles float away! The mineral water also has alot of healing properties!
Is anyone up to a trip to the spa?? My bags are still packed and waiting!!

Seriously now, head on over to A Spoonful of Sugar for our newest challenge. Also make sure you check out the design team cards....cause they are amazing! (Almost as amazing as Watrous...tee hee...just kidding)

Have a great day!

I just wanted to let you all know that I have turned on my comment moderation for a while. I am getting spammed like crazy the last couple of days, so I thought this would be easier. I hate that darn comment verification, so I am going to try and stay away from that for now!!

Hope you have a great day, I am off to work now!!

My MIL and Michelle's blog candy

Hello again!!
I thought I should let you all know how my Mother In Law is doing!! She came out of surgery around noon today. They told her that the bone in her elbow had shattered and there were alot of pieces of it in her arm. All the pieces have been removed, and apparently you don't need to have that bone. She doesn't even have a cast!! She is just wrapped with a tensor bandage. They did keep her in the hospital again today though...I guess they are worried about how much pain she is going to be in when the freezing comes out!!

Thanks to everyone for your well wishes!! I sure am glad that everything is going to be OK!!

Michelle has some amazing blog candy on her blog right now too! She even has some stamps from Alota Rubber stamps that I would love to have....especially the heart chocolate box....now if only it was enough to have that box, and I wouldn't need the chocolate!!
Go check out her blog too...cause it's awesome!! Click here for the link!!

Have a great day!

High Hopes Challenge

Wowzers...I didn't even realize that I haven't posted since Dec. 20th. Christmas was just so busy this year...and then when I came back, I got the flu. This is the first chance I've had to post all week. Hopefully I will be back to posting more regularly now!!

This week I decided to make a card for the High Hopes Challenge. The challenge was to use torn paper on your card. I decided to tear a frame around my image...was hoping it would look a little like a picture frame, but I'm not sure if it worked out that way.
Stamps: High Hopes - Lenny's love me nots, Hero Arts Anytime Messages
Inks: Memento, SU Creamy Caramel, SU Soft Sky, SU Certainly Celery, copics, prismacolor pencils and OMS and twinkling h20's.
Paper: Georgia Pacific cs, bazill cs, Basic Grey euphoria dp
Accessories: brads and lace from stash

Go and check out the High Hopes Challenge this week, the cards are amazing!! And be sure to try out this fun challenge!!

I just found out my Mother-in-law slipped on some ice today and broke her arm...or more specifically her elbow. She has to see a surgeon in Regina Tomorrow. I'm hoping that it's not too bad of a break, or she is going to need surgery. Please keep her in your thoughts for me!!

I hope you all have a great night, and I will be back on Tuesday with my Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge card!!
