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

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!

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.

Ahhh Spring

TGIF Crafty Friends!   I know I've posted here before about the Bird Feeder my DH put outside my Stamp/Scrap/Office Window for me.  I really enjoy it as the birds come and go, especially in the Winter.   Spring and Summer are fun too though because they are much more vocal and I can hear them as well as see them.  

It's time for another Color My Heart Color Dare #84!   This week we're playing with Topiary, Sweet Leaf and Sky.  Come and play!   The sketch I used was MOJO Monday #327 turned sideways. 


Supplies:  CTMH CS Chocolate, Sweet Leaf,  CTMH C1533 Fabulous You,  CTMH Ink Chocolate, Topiary, Sweet Leaf, Sky,  CTMH Chocolate Striped Ribbon, CTMH Bling Sparkles,  Maya Road Ribbon Gingham

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.
