I Juan to geev you a card...

This is the latest freebie at Just Inklined. He is only available for a limited time so go check out those awesome images! They also have a new set of "Wonderland" images that are fabulous.
I fell in love with "Mexico Phil and Horhay". Aren't they too flippin cute?

There is also a "Mexico Phil" image by himself.

I needed to make a humorous Birthday card for someone who needed a good laugh and these guys crack me up so I had to use them.

Have a Par-fect Birthday

This week at Sassy Cheryl's I get to be the hostess!! Yipee!! I have chosen the theme "The Great Outdoors". The weather is getting warmer and we will all be spending a lot more time outside. (and it's about time!) I have to say it was nice to finally get a touch of pink on my shoulders.

I made this card for my Brother In Law, Sam. He is an AVID golfer. He retired from the Army last year and is now a helicopter pilot in Colorado. When we went for a visit last summer he took us up and the view of the mountains was AMAZING! For me, they were beautiful from the ground because I had never seen them in person but the view from the heli was sooooooo much better. After I got over the initial "OH CRAP" feeling I really enjoyed it. Sam is a great guy and I am really glad my Sister brought him into our crazy family.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM, we love you!

I hope you all will come by and play along with us this week. We all really enjoy seeing your creations. So, pick out your favorite "Outdoor" Sassy image and get crafty!

Let's Chat!

I have some great new to share with all of my "bloggy friends"!!

I have been asked to join the Anita Be Stampin design team!!!!

Of course I said yes so I could create with those beautiful images. I was truly honored to join such a talented group of ladies.

The image I chose for my first challenge is called "Tallulah". I love her extra big brimmed hat!!

This is the sketch to follow for the challenge this week. Awesome huh? Hope you can participate in the challenge. I would love to see what you come up with for the sketch.

It's Snoopin' time again y'all!

It's time again to show Cheryl what wonders our creative spaces hold!! She thinks we're pretty interesting so lets make her happy and show her whats going on.

My desk is pretty tame compared to some weeks. I have only colored a few images. You can see some pretty flowers Linda (Turtle in the Sand) showed us how to make at card club on Tuesday, my Nook (I was listening to a little Jimmy Buffett earlier), some new rick rack, a card I just finished....just nosey around and check out the rest. If you have any questions about anything strange you might see that I forgot to hide...don't ask. Hahahaha! (just kidding)

Now, take a pic of your creative space and link it up HERE so I can be nosey too.

Embrace The Magic

Happy Anniversary Cindy & Charlie!!

Yesterday was my best friend Cindy and her husband Charlie's Anniversary. They have been married 9 years. You go guys!! This image is totally them in about 30 years! Hahahaha! (I think she will see the similarities) I love how she is getting a little grab of his bum, cracks me up! Seriously; I hope you two had a wonderful day and wishing you many, many more wedding day contract renewals!!

Welcome to the Neigh"bird"hood!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #60 - A Sketch

This weeks Sassy Cheryl's Challenge is brought to you by the fabulously talented Dawn from "Dawn...A New Day". She has created a fun sketch for us to follow. I just realized that my image is a rectangle and the sketch calls for an oval. Sorry Dawn, I never was very good at following directions. (ask the parents) I am in love with Cheryl's bird houses!!! I knew I had to use this image for today's challenge. I had so much fun coloring this one. Now, I just have to wait for someone new to move into my neighborhood. Lol

This is the sketch! So play along, pay attention and follow the sketch. Don't let my rebellion influence you in any way. Can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Cheryl is having a Hooray for Easter...Sale at the Sassy Cheryl Shop.

All of her images are 20% off through Saturday, April 23rd!!

Sassy Cheryl's Show Me

(or in my case...Sunday)

I know I am a few days late but I was going bonkers this past week and this weekend. My Daughter Savannah had her Senior prom and there was lots to do. (Picture below) Sorry I have missed stopping by your blogs the past few days, hopefully I can catch up tomorrow. I bet there were lots of wonderful, crafty, creations out there.

I did make time to color a little this week so you can see one of Cheryl's newest images for Spring and a couple Sparkle stamps I got last week. I also had another image I colored but I can't show you that because it is already on my challenge card for Tuesday, you will just have to wait a couple days.

Did you see my new Copic Treasure Chest?!? My hubby found it in an antique shop Friday. He put some grated ceiling tile pieces in it to keep the copics standing up. How clever is he!?! Boy, I'm one lucky gal. I love that he supports my "habit".

Sometimes you gotta sell the cow...

to get the magic beans!

I made this card for this week's challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil. The theme is "How Does Your Garden Grow?". I have wanted to color this cutie for a while but haven't really had the inspiration and it hit me today!!! Woo Hoo! Little Jack has sold his Mom's cow and thinks the only safe place to hide is up this bean stalk. Lol

Following the Leader

This week at Sassy Cheryl's our challenge is brought to you by the fabulous Dawn from Dawn... a New Day. She has chosen the theme "Think Spring". So many of Cheryl's images are perfect for Spring. She completed some yesterday and they are in the store just waiting for you. The image I chose is one of Cheryl's new images for Spring this year called "Lady Bug Follow the Leader". She is my new favorite. (Lol) I know you all are ready to celebrate Spring with us so print a Sassy image and join in!

Show Me Thrusday #19

It's time to nosey around our bloggie friend's crafty spaces again!!!

Sassy Cheryl is asking us to show her what we are working on. Seriously...she really is!!

It's already Show Me Challenge #19. Where does the time go?

On my desk this week is some new ribbon I got at Michael's for 1/2 price. That's right, 1/2 price!!! Then I used my coupon and got my new i.Rock tool. Can't wait to break that thing in, looks like a lot of blingin' fun! In the center of my space I have a Sassy Cheryl's image I am working on. I had the best time coloring her last night, she is my new favorite. She is called "Lady Bug Follow the Leader". (Please note: my favorite is always subject to change from week to week) I also have a few other images printed on some Kraft paper and colored them this afternoon at work because we were REALLY slow. (Shhhh...don't tell on me)

Y'all please stop by and share your crafty spaces with us. We are really nosey, so the more the merrier. Don't worry if you are really messy or if you are a neat freak, all are welcome.

Happy Birthday to Ewe!

This week at Sassy Cheryl's our hostess is the super sweet and talented Dawn. She has chosen the theme "Bold & Bright" for our projects. One of my daughter's friends needed a Birthday card for her step Mom so I just had to pick this adorable sheep!! I think I love him! He is really a Christmas image but it is so versatile, perfect for Birthdays too.

We have had a great turn out the past few weeks and we are all so happy to see you joining in and love checking out your blogs. Hope to see you again this week.

Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Thursday #18

I know...I know!!! It's not Thursday! There is absolutely nothing happening on my desk this week so I thought I would show you a little pic I took last Saturday. This is my daughter Savannah and my niece Samantha making pipe cleaner flowers. I love to see someone enjoying my crafty space. Aren't they too cute!?!

Maybe next Thursday I will have a mess for you to see. Lol

Stop on over to Sassy Cheryl's blog and see what everyone is up to. Then you have to link a pic to your crafty space too. ( Because we like to be nosey)

Happy Birthday to my Hubby!!

My wonderful Husband is celebrating his Birthday today!!

Instead of making him a sappy card (like I ususlly do) I decided to make a fun one. This new image from Mo's Digital Pencil was perfect. The inside just says "Happy Birthday Hot Lips!"

I am entering this in the weekly challenge at Mo's this week: Buttons and Bows.
