Mojo Sunshine

Hello Amigos!
How is your day going? Good I hope. I would like to share my take of the Mojo Monday Sketch that Julee has provided for us this week. Simon Says Stamp Challenge is also hosting Get In Shape Challenge this week meaning, anything but a square card. I am going in circles with this one, lol.
I used the Accent Notes set from Verve this time. The DP is My Minds Eye and Kraft cardstock.
What do you think?

Sending You Smiles

Hey There Friends!
It is wee#5 of  Viva La Verve Challenge.I am so excited to share with you the card I made. I used my Favorite floral image from the Great Friend set at Verve Stamps. The sentiment is also from Verve, Thoughtful Florals set. I embossed with Spellbinders Impressabilities Florals, then I distressed with Ranger Distress Inks. After all that, I sprayed some Martha Stewart Glitter all over my card.
So, What do you think?
This is the final week of October and if you plan to jump aboard, you had better get a move on it.
Hope to see you there and Good Luck!

Okay... Just One More

Hey There
If you stopped by yesterday, you know that I had put a 3rd card in for the WCMD2012. Well, I thought it would be my last entry as tonight is the deadline. I managed to make just one more. I have used The Sweet Treats Set from Verve. I added a lot of stickles that don't show, lol. I embossed 7 lines and lightly stickled them in Silver. What do you think? I really enjoyed this Challenge or can you tell, hehehe.. I managed to keep myself busy with it. 
I do believe there might be a couple of hours left, just in case you would like to partake here is the link,
Good Luck!

Happy Holidays

Hello There My Peeps!
How are you doing this fine Monday mourning? I am Loving the weather. It smells great outside and no more scorching sun rays, lol. With that being said, I have decided to make a Christmas card with snowflakes all over it. 
I pulled out a Martha Stewart paper pad from last year and Verves Ornamental Christmas set and went to work. I actually added a whole lot of stickles but, there is no sun light to make it bling. I broke off the backs of these buttons and stacked them to make a cute embellishment.
Well, I do hope you have enjoyed my card.
I've got to take a nap, lol.

You Brighten My Day

Hello Friends!
I am back with my week 4 card for Viva La Verve Challenge. Check out the gorgeous sketch Tosha came up with. 

This is what I was inspired to do with it.
I used the Thoughtful Florals Set from Verve. I loved the way it turned out but, I couldn't get a good photo due to bad weather. We finally got a bit of rain here in California, Thank the lord. I was worried for our fish, lol. If you would like to buy this set you can visit Verve Store. I hope you enjoyed my card.

Christmas is Coming!

Hey There Friends!
We are kicking off a New Challenge over at All That Scraps. "Anything But Cards"!
I was motivated by this challenge to make a Mini Note Book. Seeing That Christmas is right around the corner, I used the *New* Santa Lula as my main Image. Isn't she just the sweetest thing? I swear, Christine designs the Cutest darn images! I am the biggest Swiss Pixie fan ever. I tried to stay in this season with the flower. I just added a bit of stickles and Voila! 

Here is a side view of the Note Book. My Daughters keep trying to take it from my desk :/
So, I think I know what to make for each of them, lol. Bella hasn't been by to see it either. I think I might as well get started on hers, hehehe.

I do hope you hop on over and show us what you got for us this week.

Hang In There!

Hey There Everyone!
Just want to share a card I made for the Mojo Monday Challenge. I had to have at this gorgeous sketch. I knew the *New* My Mind's Eye, Moments Paper Pad would be perfect for this card. I Love the Bold Blue and the almost Buttercup Yellow. I was hoping to incorporate the Thatched Banner but it was just a little to wide. Maybe on the next one.
Well, I haven't been feeling great lately. So I made this one for myself. I shall take my own advise and Hang In There,lol.

Waiting For The Cool Down

Here we are in October with 102 degree weather. Oh Mother Nature, when will you show us your awesome fall colors and cooler weather?
I know I probable sound crazy but, I hate summer weather. I did lose a couple of pounds because it's been so hot but that doesn't change my mind, lol. I would Love to be cold and have the embrase of my Hubby to keep me warm rather than cringe at the thought of a sweaty arm around me. So Please cold weather get here soon;).
Today I have made a card for my Anyone For Anya DT inspiration. I is a simple one because the Challenge is to use *No Embellishments* this week. How cool is that? I used *Pumpkin Emma*  because she is simply marvelous with her little red wagon. You know as a child I always wanted a wagon and even now, as an adult I still want one! I think I should say something to my Hubby about it, lol. Am I too old for one? What would I use it for? I'm sure I'll think of something.
I really do hope you'll join us this week!

Fall Gold

Hello There Everyone!
Yes, I am posting for the second time today!  Here I thought I was in a slump, lol. I went over to the Challenge and had to jump right on it. 
I bought this Inkadinkado Stamp Sentiment months ago and it has just been hanging  in front of me waiting for the season to began. It has finally began and can now be used and displayed. I first embossed with a Fiskars texture plate * Filigree*. Then I dabbed glue randomly in the corners and most of the edge. I pulled out my Martha Stewart Glitters and Sprinkled away. I placed a layer of Burlap down before layering the decorated circle. I punched different colored leaves and sprinkled them on the glued edge of the circle. I then dabbed more glue on the leaves and dropped more glitter.
I hope you enjoyed my card.
Happy Crafting!
