Clean and Simple

The card I have for you today is for the Clean and Simple sketch challenge #174! ¬†I don’t know about you, but it seems like over the last few months I have needed so many sympathy cards. ūüė¶ ¬†I hope this trend stops really soon, and I can make more cards for Happy occasions!

 Have a fantastic middle of the week my friends.

 Check back any time, I just love when I have visitors!


Got my Mojo this weekend!

What a fabulous weekend it was here in Sunny Florida! ¬†Not only was the weather great, I had the opportunity to get together with a group of ladies that enjoy being creative as much as I do. ¬†The neat part is, is that we had never met in person and had only spoken via computer over at StampTV. ¬†So I decided that we should get together! ¬†They came to my house and we had some lunch and enjoyed some stamping time together! ¬†It turned out just wonderful! ¬†And we are going to try and do it on a regular basis! ¬†The girl time seemed to kick my mojo into geer! ¬†Now onto the real reason you stopped by! ūüôā ¬†This card is for the Mojo Monday Sketch225. ¬†As soon as I saw it I knew I was going to play along! ¬†It was different and it intrigued me!

This card is for my Hubby for Valentine’s Day…let’s just hope he doesn’t visit my blog any time soon!

Have a great week my friends,


Our Creative Corner

Here is the Inspiration Photo!

I had the pleasure to make a card over the weekend for an Inspiration Photo challenge over at Our Creative Corner. ¬†Part of the challenge is that I had to pick two elements off the photo that inspired my card. ¬†The first is the color of the cake that it is the background of the photo, it’s more of a light teal…which is in my DP and my ribbon. The second inspiration is the pretty candle holders and their curvy lines which is represented in my tag. ¬†Not to mention all the flowers on the DP. ¬†What a beautiful table for a baby shower, isn’t it?

As always thanks for stopping by and commenting,


Black and White

The weekend is over and back to work we go. ¬†Hope you had a creative weekend, I know I did! ¬†The card I have for you today is for two different challenges. The first one is for Less is More, their request was to ” cut it out”. I have done this technique before, but it’s been awhile. ¬†¬†And the other challenge is for Casual Fridays, they asked us to use only Black and White and not a speck of any other color.¬†¬†The card was made for a co-worker that will be leaving us soon, she is a long term sub for the music teacher who has been out this entire school year, ¬†she has done a really nice job filling in! ¬†I Hope she likes it!

Have a fantastic week my friends,


For Your Inspiration

Happy Saturday! ¬†The card I have for you today is for an inspiration Photo challenge over at FYI. ¬†As soon as I saw the colors I knew I had to play along! ¬†Isn’t that Photo just gorgeous!! ¬†On this particular card, I thought it might be fun to make my own DP. ¬†It didn’t come out perfect, but not bad for my first attempt. I realize their is no blue in the Inspiration photo,¬†but I thought it worked well with the rest of the colors and gave it a little pop.

Thanks so much for all your comments they make my day!

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 150

I really enjoy the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge you can find over at The Sweetest Thing. ¬†Karen always is thinking a little outside the box and I really like that. Hope you like my take on the challenge, and a Challenge it was! ¬†Why don’t you go over and join me, you have lots of time still!

Enjoy creating,


Love is Family….

Love to me today is Family! ¬†And today in particular I am missing the other part of my immediate family something fierce. That would be my son! ūüė¶ ¬†He is such a joy to have around the house, and it just isn’t the same without him here! ¬†Oh well, that is not why you are here now is it! ¬† The card I have for you today is for two challenges… the Sweet Stop Sketch and the Jugs Challenge. The Jugs Challenge was to make a card with a collage theme. ¬† Love that idea!!

  Thanks for stopping by!!

Enjoy your day wherever you are,


More than just Mojo…..

I have been busy this weekend….cleaning out, organizing and of course Stamping! ¬†The cards I have for you today are for the Freshly Made Sketch challenge #17 and Mojo #223. ¬†I love the DP so much, that I ended up making three cards with the same color combo. ¬†I love to do that! ¬†The first two cards are for Freshly Made Sketches and the third one is for Mojo Monday. ¬†Thanks so much for stopping by….I love when you do!

So I hope you have a fantastic day wherever you are and you find time to be creative!


Getting Sketchy with JUGS

Hello Stampers…The card I have for you today is for the Sketch Challenge #118 over at JUGS. ¬†As soon as I saw it I knew I had to play along! ¬†It also gave me an excuse to open a new Cricut Cartridge that I just bought myself called Picturesque. ¬†I cut the Cherry Blossom flowers with it for this particular card. ¬†Not sure on the photo if you can see the details on the flowers. ¬†I ¬†will show you in a few days what else I have done with it. ¬†So far I think I am going to just love it!

Have a fantastic day!,


Just One Word…

These are my close up shots of 2 of the 3 cards, please scroll down to view the entire  3 cards!

Whatever type of clean and simple card you make, the sentiment must¬†consist¬†of ¬†ONE WORD only! ¬†Doesn’t that sound easy and fun? ¬†If you can’t find a stamp with just one word, a¬†good way to do this is to mask the unwanted words with a sticky note and then remove the sticky note when you are ready to stamp. It’s that simple!

The butterfly stamp is one of my favorite stamp sets I bought over at Stamp TV. It is called Take Flight. I also made 2 of these cards for an Inspiration Challenge over at Stamp TV.

These cards are for the Less is More week 47 Challenge you can find here.

Have an awesome day,
