Happy Birthday!

Good Morning!  How is everyone doing?  I just had a 3 day weekend due to the President's Day holiday here in the US.  It was so great to have yesterday off. 

Today's theme for Going Grey with Scrap-Creations is an easy one!  Happy Birthday!  I used 2 of my new Lili of the Valley stamps on mine.  I love this little girl blowing on the dandelion  and I thought Wishing you a Magical Birthday went really well with it.  Check out the other wonderful creations from our DT's listed on my sidebar.

Happy Valentines Day

It's Friday!!!  YEAH!!!  It has been a long couple of weeks at work and I can really use this weekend!  It is suppose to be cold here but no snow so that means I can actually get out of the house and have fun or stay in and make cards.  Either sounds good to me!

A couple of weeks ago I got picked as a top cards at Raise the Bar.    They invited me to be a Guest DT last week but I was too busy to make a card and they were nice enough to invite me to Guest DT this week.  The theme of the challenge this week is Valentines Day without using Red or Pink.   This opened up a world of possibilities.  I choose this great stamp by Mo Manning.  She is so cute with all the flowers.  I, of course, went with Blue and Purple as my color choices.   You should pull out your Valentine or Love stamps and pop over to Raise the Bar and play.

Animal Antics

Happy Tuesday?  I say that because we are getting more snow!  Luckily we are only getting 3-5 inches.  Enough to make everything really messy but not too much to shovel.

Since it is Tuesday it is time for our next Going Grey with Scrap Creations challenge.   We have not only a great theme but a wonderful sponsor.  The theme is Animal Antics and the sponsor is Robyn's Fetish stamps. When I saw this stamp that Robyn was kind enough to supply I thought of spring and I knew that was the stamp I was using. 


You need to check out the other wonderful cards made with Robyn's stamps.  You can find the DT's listed on my sidebar.

The other wonderful challenges my card fits are:

Cupcake Craft - Seeing Red - I made this card when I got together with the Gals for stamping day.  I'm glad I did because I couldn't find any good paper for this card and Kristen found some in her stash for me.

Crafty Catz - Plaid - I love plaid!!  This plaid paper worked great for my card.

Stamp Something - Use a Digi - I used a Robyns Fetish digi on my card.


For Fun - Spring or Winter - I choose Spring!  I can't wait to see all the lakes unfreeze and see people pulling out their boats!

Craft your passion - Anything Goes - I love these themes!!!  Perfect fit!

Critter Sketch - Critters - Isn't this bunny cute!!! 

Thank you for stopping by.  Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment.  I love reading all of them.

Special Gift

Wow I can't believe it is Feb 1st already.  January flew by for me.  I hope everyone had a good weekend. Saturday I got together with Mary, Kristen, Pia, Michelle and Trish to stamp.  It is always a fun day to compare ideas and have some laughs.  I didn't get as much done as I had hoped to but that is okay.  I really liked what I made and this card is one of them. 

Today is Tuesday so it is time for another Going Grey with Scrap-Creations challenge.  I loved making the card for this one.  We have a great sponsor, Di's Digi Downloads!!!   She was kind enough to let us pick an image to play with.  I loved so many of them it took me forever to pick one.  I kept going back to this adorable cat so that is the one I picked.  You need to check these out.  I'm sure you will fall in love with them too.  The theme this week is easy, Love or Friendship.    How easy is that??
