Happy Sunday to You!

Good Morning & thanks for stopping by! While surfing the net lately I've come across various different challenge blogs & stumbled on a few that have to do with Teddy Bears. Well if you've followed my blog in the past you know I'm a teddy bear lover & teddy bears are near & dear to me. So I have yet another challenge entry to share, this one is for Teddy Stampers & it's a really cute sketch. It's actually just like the one I did yesterday with the other image :)

My apologies for the double watermark but as you can see I'm still working on how to master it :) I used some new DCWV Spring Showers paper on this one, Cuttlebug folder & Octagon Nesties as well as the teddy image from Digital Delights. Hope you like it! My plan is to post again today for another challenge or two I'm getting involved in this week so be sure to stop back if you can! Have a great day!

Happy Sunday!

Hi Everyone! Hope you are having a great weekend, talk about a fast one though, I cannot believe it's almost 4:00 here in the Midwest & we have yet another impending snow storm to contend with - 8-12 inches of the yucky stuff. Boy do I wish for SPRING... Anyway, I spent a good portion of my weekend in my stamp room so I have a few things to share this week. For starters I'd like to share my entry in the Wild Flower Patch challenge - WFWC2. I really love this cuties & have a hard time stopping myself from making things with them :) I started with a card I made on Friday using Skater Sage & green for a background, along with one of my new Asian Cuttlebug folders & long rectangle Nestabilities.

When I went to take my picture this afternoon of my entry I realized I had some little notepads I covered a few weeks back that were made School Days Ivy & with "green" as well so I couldn't help myself & added those to my entry one blonde & one brunette:

Here are all three together:

Well I hope you like them, I'm still deciding on what I can do with the newest Wild Flower Patch digi stamps, they are way too cute too! Thanks for stopping by & please if you have minute leave a comment as I'd love to hear what you think of them, thanks!

Oh be sure to come by tomorrow I have a sample made with Flower Bear from Karen's Doodles freebie from Friday for having 300/900 followers respectively on both PaperCraft Planet & her blog, way to go Karen! I also have a Sew Many Cards sample for this week's sponsor Integrity Designs & of course the monthly SMC new release blog hop starts this Friday as well, some cute images will be given away as well as cool prizes!

It's Friday - Yippee!

Boy can you tell I'm ever happy it's finally Friday? What a rough week it's been at the "day job", I was short staffed two people almost all week & one was let go awhile back so there's so much work to do... people are stressed out blah, blah, blah... I'm sure some or maybe most of you can relate. But one good thing though I do then enjoy to come home & color while watching TV, it's so relaxing, don't you agree? Well off to what I came here to do today:

Here's the sketch you need to use:

Here's my sample, I used the Tayla with Stork digi, the cute Cuttlebug poster that reminds me of a baby blanket, white polka dot sheer ribbon, large pink brads and square Nestabilities, baby cards are one of my favorites it's just too bad I have no babies on the way in the family :(...

Here's this week's freebie sample using Spring Flowers, be sure to hop on over to the challenge blog to pick up your own, it's really cute for spring:

Thanks for coming by today, hope you have a great weekend!

Kuddos to Ellen Hutson

Hi Everyone! Just a brief little kuddos to a new place I've ordered from, Ellen Hutson this was my second order to them for Copic refills as they seem to have every color I need... The first time I ordered a few weeks back they sent one of the wrong colors, I contacted them to just let them know as I had planned to order again real soon & I'd eventually need the wrong color they sent & would just re-order my original color. Well they noted the error & sent me the correct color free of charge & allowed me to keep the wrong color too as they said it was their mistake - awesome! Not only did they do that I received the fastest shipping ever on any order I've placed on-line. Well I placed that second order Monday evening after say 8 pm & received my order along with some freebies TODAY, how fast is that? I believe they are out of Washington state & I'm in Illinois & it was sent Priority... Anyway if you have a chance go check them out, they have many products to offer:

Thanks for stopping by, be sure to check back tomorrow for this week's So Many Cards Challenge & a Freebie sample.
