Challenge Details:

1. Please enter a link to your card on Mr. Linky.

6. Please share the Challenge photo on your blog that links back to this post.

And as always………..The goal is to have FUN and INSPIRE each other. 

Here is my card for this challenge.  I used the uber adorable Doodle Pantry image.  Love this little bear!

As you can see I used a non-traditional color for my focal image and I love how it turned out!  Our local SBS has the new Cosmo Cricket DeLovely collection and It’s soooo different from all the other Cosmo Cricket lines, but I love it just as much!    For the sentiment I used some Basic Grey felt letters.  Too fun! 
The Challenge Candy:
                                                  18 sheets of 6×6 Cosmo Cricket DeLovely paper.
What is included in the Challenge candy:
18 – sheets of Cosmo Cricket 6×6 DeLovey paper
2 – Imaginisce stamps (octopus and whale – they are too cute!)
3 – hand dyed doilies (Turquoise – matches perfectly with the DeLovely paper)
1 – Pentel While gel pen
1 – Marvey mini glue runner (this is sooo cute!)
1-  and I’ll throw in a few more goodies.
Thanks for stopping by today and I can’t wait to see what you create!
Many Blessings,

Blackleaf Studios Wedensday

19 May
Good Morning!  I have another Blackleaf Studios creation to share with you.  Our DT had a challenge to create an item using the Army graphics or Army digital stamp set and metal accents.  I choose to work with the graphics this time around.  I made a digital invitation that I printed out and a bag topper for the treat bags.
It is so easy to use the graphic set that Blackleaf has to make digital items.  I just love the Army graphic set.  My boys are ALL boy through and through and they love all things Army.  But what boy doesn’t.  I am going to use this set of invites and bag topper for my youngest son’s Birthday that is coming this fall. 
In the picture above you are seeing the front of the card.

This is the backside of the invite.   I used my Photoshop Elements version 7 to create these items and printed them from my desk top printer that is 3 plus years old.  (Can you believe that my printer is that old and still works like a charm. LOL!)

As always….Blackleaf Studios would like for you to join in the fun and create with us.   Please hop on over to the BLS blog and play along.   You can win an awesome digital stamp set from BLS.  It’s a win – win for you.  Don’t forget that they have FREEBIES for you as well, check them out HERE

Check out what the awesome and uber talented DT members did as well.

Rain or Shine Piggy

16 May

Happy Sunday to you!  It has been one busy weekend and this morning church service was awesome!  My Pastor preached on Worship and Commitment and it was soooo good!  It was the type of message the encourages you and challenges you to deepen your relationship with God. The presence of God was so strong….a sweet presence. 

I made this little piggy card using the Create a Critter cartridge.  It’s sooo cute and easy to use.  My youngest son visits a 5th grade teacher almost every day and talks her ear off! LOL!!!  She was my eldest son 5th grade teacher a couple of years ago and she loves PIGS!  She has a ginormous collection of Pigs and I pretty sure that she doesn’t have this pig.     This card is in a pack of cards.  I figure she can use this for her boyfriend….

This week I will be posting several cards from The Doodle Pantry.  I just love Laurie Wilson’s images!  They are darling, truly darling.  I have been so busy studying for finals and finishing up reports that I haven’t had a lot of time to create.  I am so wiped out by the end of the night, that I just go to sleep.  LOL!

So look for some Doodle Pantry images and a sketch challenge from me.  I still need to buy the prizes so late in the week I’ll be posting my 5th Moe Joe Design Challenge and I hope you play along. 

Tonight the boys and I are going to be decorating a cake using the Cricut Cake machine and I’ll video tape that with my digital camera… be looking for that post as well.  The boys have been bugging me to make something, so we planned for today.

Well I do need to get going and finish up my homework.

Thanks for stopping by and many blessings!
