The challenge at Hambo Hoedown this week was to use the "More Please?" digi that I got for playing the challenge last week. This is what I came up with. I used the same sketch for the S&S Sketch Challenge this week, too. Here it is!

Hi everyone! I get several cards done over the weekend. I did the Stars & Stamps Sketch #62 challenge using the bonus sketch this week.. I really, really liked this sketch. It was so versatile and easy to modify so that the cards each looked unique. It's simple and clean. Loved it! Here's the sketch:

Stars & Stamps blog challenge to us this week is to make cards for kids. I got one done tonight. (I was a bit too distracted by American Idol!) I thought this card would be so fitting for a teenage girl's birthday. My teenage daughter thought so, too. What do you think? Well, until next time...

I'm did a challenge at a new blog site, Hambo Hoedown, that I recently discovered through my friend, Robin. They have the cutest stamps! Well, the challenge was to use a Hambo stamp (I used a digi stamp) and glitter, bling, Stickles, etc... I used Stickles on the inner tube and on the sandals as well as Diamond Glaze on the glass to mimic liquid and on the water for the same effect and the brads are glitter brads.
Hope you like it! Let me know what you think! I love to see your comments!
Until next time...

I made these two cards today for the Stars & Stripes sketch challenge #61. I didn't follow it exactly, but it's pretty close. I used two stamped images that I acquired through a stamped image swap (I think they are Stampin' Up images), the coffee bean border is a printable background digi-stamp from the Cutting Cafe and the striped paper is wallpaper. Doesn't the textured tan paper look just like the sleeves that come on our froo-froo coffees?!

OWH had a Facebook card party this weekend. I didn't join in until after it had started so I never completed all the card challenges, but I did get a few done. One of the challenges I had previously posted for the scallop challenge on the OWH Stars & Stripes blog, but here's the others I did.
Well, until next time...

Here's a card I made for the OWH Stars & Stamps Facebook card party this weekend. It just so happens that it meets the Midweek Throwdown challenge on the blog, as well. Thanks for bringing that to my attention, Sandy! ;) The challenge was to use scallops on a card and I did just that on this one.

I did these super cute cards for any hero cards for OWH and they followed the OWH card sketch, too.
And here's the cards:

I did some card making this weekend. I had so much fun. Watched an "Indiana Jones" marathon and got some cards done! I'm really trying to replenish my card stash and get some cards for OWH done, too.
Hope you enjoy them!

I went to a scrapbook retreat at Tall Oaks in Minocqua the end of January with a great group of gals! There were some old friends and I got to meet several new friends. I absolutely love going to these retreats. It's so fun to get together with a group of people that have the same passion as me. Plus, the food ain't bad, either!!! Tee, hee! Here's some layouts that I completed while there.

My life has been quite complicated over the last several months with many ups and downs, but mostly downs... I have just recently begun to make time once again for card making and scrapbooking. It feels good and it certainly is a good stress release for me! It lets me at least temporarily forget my troubles for a time...
Anyway, here's some new cards I've done. Hope you enjoy taking a peek! Let me know what you think. I love reading your comments!
