Pixie Cottage Wednesday!

Happy Hump Day! 
I am thrilled as I get today off. My plan: get my son off to school, do a small work assignment (done by 7a) and then back to bed.  I like to treat myself to sleep in till 9a on my days off.  That also means I get to stay up late (I am easily entertained, right?)  

Well anyways- that is not why you are here is it?  So I will talk alittle about my card.  I pulled out Tilda for this one, I have not used any of my magnolia images I bet for at least 4 months.  But one thing that is nice about the Pixie Cottage stamps is that they work so well with the Magnolia's.  Look at this little bench with the crisp golden delicious apples!  Nice spring day with the cute little clouds in the air.  

This week over at the Pixie Cottage Challenge  there is the theme of "anything goes" and then a sketch.  You should come on over and join us this week- winner gets a prize! 

Tata for now!

Girlfriend- it's your Birthday!

Happy Monday!! 
I hope you all had a great weekend and although Monday's are not my favorite day of the week I got to show you my creation for ABC Toys & Crafts.  We are still focusing on MS Punches and this week I used a couple of them.  Last week I focused on thank you cards and this week, yep- Birthday.  I love how the card turned out with the circles, rectangle, the little ledger and well it just feels good. (nothing like tootin your horn huh?)  Well at least I hope you like it some.  

Now February's challenge ended but we will be starting a new one this coming weekend so don't forget to come back and join us starting Sunday!

Fluttering .................

Happy Friday All!
Today's card I made for ABC Toys and Crafts to show off some of the MS Punches which I think that most of just love.  For some reason I am into the little butterflies.  The sketch is from skipping stones and I think it is a little different, thought I would have a hard time making a card but it all came together well (I think!).   

 I do hope that you will join us over on the DT Challenge this month when making your Red, Pink and White projects-  remember that this challenge runs through Saturday so get to creating and linking!

A bunch of THANKS!

Hello Everyone! 
Wow- I have been sick for a few days- have not crafted in about 10 days and no posting for a week!  Not sure what it was but I slept more than my cats (according to my hubby/son).  But I did find these cards that I had worked on before I got sick and thought I would post them today.  I just love how they turned out.  The card on the right was a sketch that I found and it was actually quite fun!  

I will be back tomorrow with my card for ABC Toys & Crafts- whom by the way is having a sale on MS Punches!

Anything But A Card

Wednesday- which means it is Pixie Cottage Challenge.  We have a theme and a sketch as usual: I chose to go with the challenge this week.  The challenge was to make something other than a card.  I have a friend that needs a little help with her organization so I altered this composition  book for her.  I hope she likes it.  I stamped the Hanna On A Sled and then colored her with copics.  I must say that coloring these images is the most fun!  
And a close up of the image and the wintery playground! 
So come and join us on the Challenge site!

Happy Monday!!!
Another Valentine's Day Card for me.  I went with the blues and neutrals to make it more romantic this time.  I got all my goodies for this card at ABC Toys & Crafts.  I started with Authentique Journey paper pad, this pad of paper is so romantic and vintage.  LOVE it girls!  
The images are from the Crafty Secrets set French Mail  and stamped in soft suede, this color definately went well with this whole ensemble.  This week we are also using MS Punches !  I do hope that you will join us over at the challenge site- we would still like more to join us.

Love and Commitment.............

Hello Everyone!  
I know we are all thinking along the lines of love and Valentine's but I was thinking what else goes along with that?   Well.............. weddings, love and commitment.  So I just stretched my love of Valentine's and made this sweet little Wedding Card.   I had seen a similar card over on Julee's blog and loved all the textures and had to give it a try!
Thanks for stopping in today!

Red Pink

Happy Monday!
This week over on the ABC Toys & Crafts Challenge we are focusing on what else but Red, Pink and White Creations~ I feel like I packed alot of stuff onto (into) this card. It was alot of fun to make too. I started with Authentique paper pack and cut out a variety of hearts with MS, Cheery Lynn, and Spellbinders. The pocket is embossed with the music folder- I truly love this folder because it can be whimsical or romantic. I also added some MM glitter flowers and pearls. The sentiment is Crafty Secrets.
Julie has some fabulous challenges coming up and I think that you will all enjoy the prizes! I do hope you will join us! HERE

Other Challenges: Cheery Lynn Red N White

Pixie Cottage Wednesday Challenge

Clean and Simple!
Over at Pixie Cottage this week we are keeping it C&S. I love these types of challenges because I feel like so many times I am trying to add more layers, more prints, more embellishments. When I do the Clean and Simple they looks so.... well clean. Which I suppose is the point, right? I chose this image from Pixie Cottage-May I Have This Dance : I thought it fit the challenge so well. Anyways- I do hope you will join us!
