Happy Birthday Card for Delightful Sketches

Wow can you believe it! I made three cards in one week. My sister-in-law Armi has a birthday this week. My brother lives in Sugarland on the other side of Houston, so I can mail her card a little later, than I normally would. I made this card with a skecth from Delightful Sketches. They post new sketches every two weeks which gives you plenty of time to make a perfect card. For more info on their challenges visit their blog.
I used a digi stamp I got from Picasa Webalbum. The background paper is from the Paper Studio SO-SO-SWEET paper pack with glitter.
Flower ribbon purchased at Hobby Lobby. I used Shimmerz on the ribbon and flowers. Lastly I used a puffy paint for the center of each flower, and raised the image with dimensional dots.

Thanks for visiting.

Funny Halloween Card & Challenges

Hello again Everyone.

I'm so suprised I've made two cards in one weekend. I hope to finish one more, but we'll see. Today was a gloomy, rainy day. Makes you wonder if the witch in my card was having weather issues . This witch & phrase come from RubberNecker stamps, everything else was made with my cricut. I got a few suggestions to add some crows, which are hand made.

This card was not only fun to make but funny too.

I made this card for Stampin for the Weekend & Stamp Something Challenge. Both Challenges are Halloween themed. Stamp Something Challenge is sponsored by Cute Daisy May Digi Stamps. Donna from Bearly Mine Design is sponsoring Stampin for the Weekend. Check out there blogs for more information.

Have a great Week


Crazy 4 Challenges

Hello Everyone,
This was a beautiful weekend! The mesquites were out by the dozens, but other than that just wonderful! Bob's pug Moses is old even though & we know he can partially see from one eye.He functions normally and we have never experienced any problems. Well this weekend we took our dogs to the park & I was walking Moses.We were walking at a fairly fast pace. This surprised me, because Moses usually walks slowly. Well anyway: He walked into a tree!!! Yeah Walked into a tree!! I looked down just in time to see him hit he's head! He shook it off and nothing is wrong with him. But man do I feel soo bad! We all laughed & joked about it, but!! Well it got me thinking....I need to pay more attention when I'm walking him. Poor old dog.
Thanks again for stopping by. If you have a moment leave a comment thanks.
I decided to try a new challenge by: Crazy 4 ChallengesWe had to make a card using three geometric shapes. I used a triangle, oval and square. Stop by there blog and see what the wonderful Design Team has created! They have a wonderfully creative group of women.
