Two Challenges

I haven't had much time to craft lately, but I've enjoyed making these cards. I'm still trying to stick to my goal of useing my scraps before going to my paper stash. Both cards were made from my scraps pile. My Jacob card is made from Pixie Dust Studio image. If your a Twilight fan you'll rememeber Bella tell Jacob " your so warm, your like your own sun". Thats why I have the sun in my card. That and I used a a sketch from I Heart 2Stamp Challenge. It will be my first time trying, a I Heart 2 Stamp Challenge. I love the amount of time she gives you to work on your project. I may try again and see if I can get more detail in my card. I'm re reading Eclipse and have now started to watch Twilight with the comentary on . Yup I'm living in my fantasy world so I decided it was time to create a Jacob card. If youi like the Jacob image go visit Kathy's Pixie Dust Studio Etsy Store and you'll find Bella & Edward along with lots of imagies you'll just love.

My next card is made for Creatively Yours Sketches. I used scraps and wallpaper squares punched out by my big punch. I used a digi from Doodle Palace Store called Seana and Scamp Squirrels. I bought a bunch of great images a few months back and now I'm getting to use them.
Thanks for stopping by

Busy,Busy My Daughter is getting married

My daughter is getting married in April and we were busy all week making wedding shower invitation. She's so happy and I'm happy she's happy. Funny but when Ryan told me he was going to propose, all I could see in my head was when she was a baby. Now every moment I spend with her is more precious than ever. You see she's moving to Fort Polk after she graduates college. Ryan is in the Army and I remember how hard being an army wife can be. I'm sure she'll adjust just fine and we're only 3 hours away, but you know how us mom's worry. This card is to be entered in Caardvarks chance to get published in Cards Magazine's July 2010 issue.
