Are You Hoppy?


This week I'm traveling for work and we're in the very pretty city of Nashville, TN. I saw Daffodils on my way here and it's "greener" here in TN than OH. Definitely makes me anxious for Spring to arrive! It seemed like a good time to get out some Easter stamps and get ready for March and April stamping! The sketch I used is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. It was fun to use all these layers. Supplies: CTMH Emporium CB, CTMH Stamps Bunny Love, CTMH Ink Cocoa, Juniper, Creme Brulee, CTMH Just Blooms, CTMH Pearl Opaques

Let's Go Again!


I needed a card for a young friend of mine. That meant it was time to get out the CTMH Thrill Ride and stamp with the Merry-Go-Round again! I like that stamp set because it always reminds me of the Fair -- Fun Rides, Hot Summer Day, Cotton Candy ... yum! I'm not much into rides anymore but it was sure fun when I was little. This sketch is the Mojo Monday 180 and I chose these colors for the H2H Challenge to use Gypsy, Creme Brulee and Black. Supplies: CTMH Paper Hooligans, CTMH Stamps Thrill Ride, CTMH Ink Creme Brulee, Gypsy, Black, CTMH Green Buttons, CTMH Sparkles

Friends Forever!


A good friend of mine sent me a Birthday Card and it was SO SWEET to hear from her. As I took it off the shelf today, I decided that I wanted to send her a card as well -- just because. She's the kind of friend that you can ALWAYS count on no matter when, where or what! I used this week's sketch at Card Positioning Sketches #207 and the color scheme from Pals Paper Arts Challenge 83. Off to find an envelope :) Supplies: CTMH CS Kraft, Chocolate, Spring Iris, CTMh Stamps Unity, CTMH Ink Chocolate, Spring Iris Desert Sand, CTMH Sparkles, Misc Lace

Come On Spring!


I keep gazing out the window hoping to catch a glimpse of the beautiful Cardinals, Robins and Blue Jays that enjoy my yard and trees each Spring and Summer. I've seen them this last week a couple times so I know Spring is close! Today it's a downpour with lots of Flood Warnings but we had so much snow that had to melt, I guess it had to go somewhere. Glimpses of birds in my yard were all I needed to get out my bird stamps again as many of you know, they're some of my favorite! The Challenge at Cute Card Thursday 91 is to create a card for Spring and another Very Cute Sketch at "the sweetest thing" Sketch Sunday Challenge 106 was just a great way to get started! Here's my glimpse of Spring! Enjoy! Supplies: CTMH Emporium CB, CS Cocoa, CTMH Stamps A Tweet, CTMH Inks Sweet Leaf, Cocoa, Vineyard Berry, Twilight, CTMH Buttons Blue, CTMH Pearl Opaques

Wild About You!


Sunshine always brings out my desire to use bright colors. It's finally starting to feel like we're making our way to Spring here in Ohio. This fun card was inspired by the Wild Thing Challenge at SCS VSN. I used the Sketch at Sketch Saturday. Supplies: CTMH Paper Animal Cookies, CTMH Stamps It's A Zoo, CTMH Ink Tulip, Pear, Honey, CTMH Big Brads

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.
