Happy Monday friends, Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I know here in Northern Calif. we had 80 deg. days and my hubby and I even made  a day trip to San Francisco and on the way home stopped at Tilden Park to look at the little steam engines. They are so cool. They are real just on a wee small scale. They give family rides and it is just so pretty going thru Tilden on the steam train. We even got some cool pictures of San Francisco in the distance. You would think we were tourists. I have lived here my whole life and never get tired of seeing the Golden Gate or the San Francisco skyline!!So, It was a wonderful weekend. So, enough about my weekend I want to share with you all another challenge card that I finished. It was actually for 2 challenges. The first one being "Color Throwdown" The colors are Certainly celery, Pretty in pink, Melon Mambo & Always Artichoke. 

Now for the sketch, It was from "The Deconstructed Sketch" There you have it, The 2 challen…

Hello Friends, How is every one's week going? It is almost Wednesday and I am so ready for the weekend even though we just had a week off for Spring break. The weather is getting nice and it is staying light later so it is almost Summer time and I can feel it!!  Sooooo, here I am with a project that I have just completed for Swap-Bot. This was to decorate a note book in the "Tim Holtz" kind of way. Well, I am really happy with how this turned out. I added the recipients name to the side and what I did was cut out the letters from a 12X12 piece of Tim Holtz designer paper and I glued them to card board and after I cut them out, I went over each letter with Distress crackle paint in Clear rock candy. The dress form is heat embossed in black and the time piece above it is heat embossed in clear over distress ink in aged mahogany. I added some burlap and some metal clock hands and keys and also that little burlap flower at the bottom of her name. Once I decorated it then I s…

Good evening Friends, Here I am again, 2 days in a row, WOW, I need to keep this creative roll going. The 2 challenges that I am playing along with are, Just add ink and Mojo Monday. I had originally done it for 3 challenges but one of them ended last night and I didn't get it in in time. 
Okay, So what I really like about this creation is(and I didn't even realize it until I put it together) is, The sentiment says  "Just a note to say Hello"  and look at the patterned paper that I used. Music notes, LOL! OK, call me a Blondie.  I just had to giggle to myself. So, with that being said, The 2 challenges that I am playing along with are, Just add ink, a color challenge of which we were to use Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla & Choc. chip. I actually used all of those colors. I am a huge fan of Pink and Anything so this was kinda easy for me. The other challenge was Mojo Monday which is a sketch challenge. 

So, I just had to stop and share what I have created.…

Finnally, A post

Hello Friends, It has been a long while for me but it has been an equally long while since I have created anything post worthy. I really have been in quiet the funk. Yes, I have created some quickie throw together things on a whim but for the most part, I havent done any challenges or swaps or anything like that. Some of my funk is Blogger. My blogger is a jacked up. I cannot see post options so when I go to change this font and color, I don't even know what I am clicking on. I really wish I was a little more computer literate. So, with that being said, I am posting a card that has actually taken me a few days to make. Mostly because every piece of card stock on it had to dry. I used Tattered Angels Glimmer mist on everything except for the tag. I just got my shipment in from Tattered Angels for My Etsy store and I have to say, Glimmer Mist is one of my most favorite things to use in my creations(minus the drying time)but the stuff is so much fun. Stop by My Etsy store and buy you…
