Good Morning....The sun is shining and the air is frigid, but it is a day that is loaded with lots of fun!! I got my card done, a baby shower to attend and friends coming for dinner!! Fun!! Fun!! My card today used the Embellish Magazine challenge and the Pink Elephant sketch challenge. For the Embellish Magazine challenge we were to use the colors: yellow, green, pink, and peach--plus add in a border of some kind. The Pink Elephant sketch was perfect for this challenge because it called for a border as well. I stamped my VERVE trees, cut them out, and attached them with a 3D glue dot. The button on top of my ribbon was made with my i-top brad maker. To finish off my card I added several gray rhinestones along the scalloped border. Thanks for stopping by and having a look.....enjoy your weekend!!!

My card today just had to be another round card--loving them!! I used the Colour Q challenge for my color combo: Top layer of my flower is Regal Rose covered with clear chunky glitter, the bottome layer is Mellon Mambo covered in clear chunky glitter, the center is a brad from Micheal's, my leaves were punched out using my MS fern punch and Green Galore cardstock, the back-ground is Apricot Appeal DP, and the base of my card is Whisper White. Thanks Julee for another great sketch and thanks to Arielle for another great color combo!!

Today I decided to use the round sketch.....I am loving these round cards!! This card also fits the Olympic color combo....Pacific Point, and Real Red. I used my nessties to cut out each layer...the white layer I ran through my CB using the Distressed Stripes folder...my sentiment panel was also cut out with my nessties...I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point...added some butterflies that I punched out of the same DP...finished it off with some ribbon and gold half beads.

The below pages were created to help us remember our mini vacation to VA Beach in September of 2008...yeah yeah I know I am alittle behind!! That is why I have joined two scrapbooking sites--while playing along with their challenges I am getting caught up. Come on out and join the fun and get caught up as well....these pages are created for the 2-10-10 layout challenge over at Let's Scrap. I am also on the design team over at Soul Scrappers and that has given me lots of inspiration for getting pages done--it is a new site that focuses on the heart of scrapping--come on over and check it out!!

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.
And for my SNOW challenge: WISH lettering is full of bling, Nice ultra-mini brads, One photo of my beautiful daughter, and alots of white space! My background DP is from the Walk in the Park DP from Stampin Up. The lettering was hand written and there you have it!!
So what do you think of my new toy.....the i-top brad creator!! I love it--punch out your dp with the i-top punch and snap together using i-top brads. How cool it that---you can even use it with fabric!! I am so very excited.....I will try not to use it everyday this week!!!

I added some tags from Stampin Up!'s Tiny Tag set in addition to the same stamps that I used on the lid. My color combo is: Choc. Chip, Close to Cocoa, Real Red, and Whisper White--Great for a masculine project.
Here you can see the lid alittle prefect!! I can't wait to give it to him. He loves his coffee and always enjoys a new special flavor. I hope this one tastes as good as it smells!!!

We are having yet another snow day--#7 to be exact. It really is a beautiful winter wonderland!! I used my Allegro embossing folder for my background, punched my border with my new punch from Stampin Up, added some ribbon and pearls to spruce it up, stamped my sentiment, from Verve, in Basic Gray, my birdie is from Stampin Up!'s Wings of Friendship--inked with markers (Sage Shadow and Ruby Red--sorry don't have Ridinghood Red anymore), I paper pieced the wing and added a pearl for his eye. Thanks for stopping by to have a look!!
My card today was made for Shannan Teubner...she lost her husband unexpectedly at the beginning of the week. My thoughts and prayers are with her during this time of grief!!

Here is my card for this weeks color throwdown challenge. I used the new DP that Stampin Up has a freebie during Sale-A-Bration sale. I used two sheets--cut the houses out from the one and raised them with pop-dots. Except that cutting out the houses which was alittle time consuming.....this card was really simple!!
Both the card and the pages were made with StampinUp!'s DP, cardstock, embossing plate, and buttons.
