how VERY fun it is to be with my CTMH girlfriends at the CTMH ReDiscover Event in Detroit, Michigan!   I can't believe it worked out so I could attend but it did and I had a great time.  Lots of good info and inspiration.   

Speaking of inspiration,  today is Day #3 of Round 2 of our SCS "100x100" challenge.   If you have never done a challenge like this, the goal is to create a scrap page or card, 100 in 100 days.   It's very fun and is a great push to create daily.  The card sketch is MOJO Monday #337   I'll definitely photo my fun projects from tonight for my blog tomorrow!


Supplies:  CTMH Paper Lollydoodles,  CTMH Stamps cc1020 It's Your Day,  CTMH Ink Lagoon, Cotton Candy,  CTMH Slate Twine,  CTMH Grey/Black Sparkles

Hello Tuesday

wait a minute ... come back sunshine!  I loved the 70 degree days we had this weekend but unfortunately, the nice temps didn't stay around ... we're back into the 40's today.  Oh well, still lovin' the Spring weather and glad to see the birds out and the daffodils budding. 

My card for today is inspired from MOJO Monday Sketch #340, I'm just catching up on a few I got behind on.   It's for Day #2 of the 2nd Round of our SCS "100x100" Card Challenge.

It's BACK ...

Ok, not only do I mean the Sunshine but Round #2 of our SCS "100x100" challenge!  Yes!  the 2nd round.  I did well, the first one,  I finished 184 cards, 71 different unique cards.   For all of January and February,  I had a card per day posted on my blog :)    I hope to do it again this round.  It's great for MOJO and especially using supplies.

No matter how many cards I get done for this round, I'll be happy.   My card today is inspired from this week's MOJO Monday #342.   Fun Sketch!  I hope too use it again soon as I have another idea for this one.

Come On Spring

Right now here in Ohio the weather has been so quirky it feels like Spring will never get here ... where is it?!   We had nice days near 60 then freezing temps and more snow several times, ugh!  Well,  I'm ready for Spring and going to wish for it.  Hello April! I've pulled out my flower and bird stamps and put away the snowmen for next year,  LOL!

It's Friday (YAY!) and time for another Color My Heart Color Dare #88.  The challenge colors this week are Smoothie, Buttercup, Sunset, Lagoon and Sweet Leaf.   Some of my colors are in the background as I tried a "blowing technique" for a card challenge.  I like how it turned out,  especially for this Springtime card.  It's day #94 of our 100x100 Challenge at SCS!  Come and play!

Supplies:   CTMH CS SweetLeaf, Smoothie, Lagoon,  CTMH Stamps Wonderful Charms,  CTMH Ink Cocoa,  CTMH Chevron Ribbon, CTMH Lagoon Washi Tape,  CTMH Pearl Opaques,  Embossing Folder Quatrefoil

Pure Joy

WooHoo ... it's Friday!   After a long 2 weeks of Travel,  I'm thrilled to be home.  It's also our new Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #87 so get out that new wonderful CTMH Ivy Lane paper and play along with us.   I decided I wanted to scrap with it as it has really cute stickease and embellishments.   These photos are from my birthday this year.  It was really nice to have my oldest son home for the party and my DH made me a card which I thought was SO SWEET!  

Supplies:  CTMH Ivy Lane Paper,  CTMH Ivy Lane Stamps,  CTMH Ink Hollyhock,  CTMH Sunset Washi Tape

Just Be!

Happy Friday!  Finally some Spring weather to enjoy, welcome back sunshine. We had a very tough winter this year and it feels great to see the sun and hear the birds.   This Friday at our Color My Heart Color Dare #86,   we're playing with Pondersosa Pine, New England Ivy and Goldrush.   I didn't have any of the pine but the other 2 colors worked perfectly for this card.

This is a CASE for the Featured Stamper 030914 Challenge.  It's also Day #80 of our SCS 100x100 Challenge.   It's going along very good ...

I hope you get time for some stampin' this weekend and you come over to the Color Dare and play along!

Scrap Saturday

Oh yeah ... watching basketball and scrappin' ... that's a fun Saturday!   I've been wanting to get this page done because I didn't want to lose the memoriabilia, LOL!   While my DS was home for Christmas Break, we went up to Tower City in Downtown Cleveland to the Hard Rock CafĂ©!  Very good food and lots of fun.   This is for March scrappin' Challenge at H2H to use one or more of the CTMH Cricut cartridges ... I used Artbooking tonight.

Living, Loving, Laughing 4 Life

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
