Share the Love

Woohoo!  Love is in the air ... well, sort of .... coming soon right?  Haha!   My hubby is frustrated with me because I worked late last night and it interrupted date night plans ... who knew?!   I plan to make it up to him next week for Valentines day and Surprise him with favorite dinner, pineapple upside-down cake and of course a card or 2 .   I always make lots of Valentines and pick one for him as I'm making them.   LOL!    Perfect Timing for our Share the Love Blog Hop!   (Complete List of Hoppers Here).  If you're hopping along our "Share the Love"  Blog Hop, you just came from Gina's Blog.  

I'm sure once you get a chance to see all the neat cards, pages and d├ęcor in our Hop that can be done with this stamp, you'll want to own the set also!    I made Valentines! 

This is inspired by this week's MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge #433.   My next card was from a Card Sketch posted on   I thought it was perfect for the hearts I had already cut from another project on my desk

More cards coming this week so be sure to check back and see all the other fun stuff I get inspired to do with these stamps.   If you're hopping along,   your next stop is Terrie's Blog.    Have fun!

Cheers To Love

If you haven't had the chance, make sure to pull the papers out  to play along with some of the Charlotte Paper this week!  I used every scrap of the Workshop Your Way papers.  I finished up 6 scrap pages and 5 cards.   This one is for my DH.  Our Anniversary is in May and I figured this was the perfect card to celebrate with.  

If you're playing along with us at Color My Heart Color Dare #179,  it's time to use your Charlotte papers or the colors that go along with it.    Enjoy Your weekend!

Hello Friday

Woot!  Woot!  Yesterday was my Bday and the best part was I got to spend it with my Mom, Sister and Family!   Happy Birthday to me, it's always a treat to be with my loved ones. 

Welcome to Friday and another Fun edition of Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #177.   This week we're playing along with Crystal Blue, Peacock and Whisper.  What a great combination.  I was scrapping and knew just the page I wanted to do with these colors.   I love that the Paper Fundamentals Pack comes with some fun words and complements and I used my CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to cut the #1 and the Basketballs.  

I wanted to complete this page because it goes with the H2H "One" Challenge.  I hope you come and play along this week!   Let's see what you can do with these colors.

Seasonal Fun

Hello from Sunny Florida!  What a good time to be on a business trip in the South.  I'm enjoying the sunshine and not missing the snow!   It's also a great time to celebrate our new Seasonal Expressions .... Don't you just love EVERYTHING! 

If you're hopping along with us, you just came from Lauren's Blog.   One of my favorite paper packs in this new Seasonal Expressions Idea Book is the Charlotte Paper Pack!  The colors and design are so versatile.  Of course, the new Workshops Your Way (WYW) are an awesome option because you get lots of paper to use for pages and the left overs, make great cards.  I was able to finish 7 Scrapbook Pages and 5 cards.   I did not use all of the WYW layouts as I had some ideas of my own but it worked out well.  No paper left to sit in my stash and some fun pages and cards done.   Here's some of my faves:

I know I'll be playing along with the additional WYW Packs and more of the other adorable stamp sets available through this book!   Check out Katie's Blog for more fun creations from our Seasonal Expressions!   If you get lost along the way, Melinda has the Blog Hop List posted.

Whew ... Winter

Well,  we had a "reprieve" from cold and snow during December but Winter has come to Ohio.  It has been snowin', blowin' and cold this week.   Always makes life more challenging during the work week trying to get to meetings on time but it's to be expected. 

This week at Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #176 we're playing with grays, black and white so what better time to make a card welcoming winter, LOL!   I hope you get the chance to play along this week with our color fun!

Color of Love

Today was the perfect day for relaxing, stamping and scrapping here in Ohio.  It was in the 20's and snow so what better time than to hide in the Scrap/Stamp office and enjoy some crafting time.  Ahhh, I love weekends like that.   It's also time to start making Valentines so that's just what I did.

Today I played along with MOJO Monday #429 and to spice it up some,  I used the color challenge over at The Paper Players #277.   I didn't have the exact SU! colors but hopefully these CTMH colors were close.

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!

The View from My Window
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.
