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!

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.

Loving Memories

A new friend of mine over at SCS lost her DH to cancer.  I have been wanting to get a card done for her but wasn't sure what papers and what I wanted for a sympathy card.  It's a little more difficult.  I decided to use the CTMH Skylark paper and I have some new stamps.  It worked perfectly for what I wanted the card to say.    It is day 62 of the SCS "100x100" Challenge.   I was traveling so I had limited stuff but it worked and I also got the March Card Sketches at done.

Supplies:  CTMH Paper SkyLark,  CTMH Stamps D1584 Big Hug, CTMH Ink Cocoa, CTMH Sparkles Swirl,  CTMH Lagoon Washi Tape,  CTMH Trinkets Wooden Shapes, CTMH Sparkles
