Sour Apples!!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #130 - Back To School

Good Morning! I hope everyone survived Monday and are on their way to a terrific Tuesday. 
I'm here to remind you that it's time for another fun challenge at Sassy Cheryl's.  I am the hostess this week and I have chosen the theme Back To School. We started back on Wednesday so our Summer routine has changed and we are trying to adjust. Maybe we will adapt sometime before Christmas. Lol
I chose Jeni Hates School for my image this week. Don't you just love the expression on her face?
Poor Jeni, she misses Summer on the beach in her flip-flops... *sigh*

It was so great to see so many of you in last weeks Birthday Challenge. Hope to see you in our Back to School gallery as well. Good luck in the drawing and Happy Crafting Y'all!!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #129 - Birthday

Good Tuesday morning Blogland! It's time for another fun challenge at Sassy Cheryl's. We are celebrating Birthdays with our theme this week. I know you all have SOMEONE who needs a Birthday card!! I made this one with a special little girl in mind and I colored her hair to match. Isn't Jeni cute in her kitty cat costume?!? I just love her...whiskers and all! You can find her HERE. Cheryl has some other little  Halloween cuties in her shop too, just in time to get  a jump on those "too cute to spook" cards. 

I made another circle sentiment for my card this week so grab it if you want.
Just right click on the image below and save it to your computer. 

We had a great turn out for last weeks challenge and sure hope to see you all again this week. 
Thanks for joining us and Happy Crafting Y'all!!

Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Thursday #87

Hi Blogland! It's Thursday evening and I only have a half a day of work tomorrow and I am off Saturday AND Sunday this week. Can you guess how happy I am?!?! It seems like I haven't had any "relax" time in a while and I am SUPER excited!!! I plan on being a lazy bum...Lol

Thursday also means it's time for another Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Challenge!! I wasn't sure what I was going to show you today until I came home to find a surprise waiting for me. My SWEET Hubby made me a shabby chic jewelry hanger for my wall. You would not believe the mess my "bling" is in right now and will be so glad to finally have a nice place to call home. 

I have also been coloring a bit in the evenings. I couldn't help myself...Cheryl has some of the most adorable new images in her shop. This lady is on a BIG creative roll!!! Click HERE and check them out. 
Here are 3 of Cheryl's new cuties and a Teddy Bo I have had FOREVER and just had the urge to color. Can you tell I'm in the mood for Fall???

Magical Day

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #128 - Favorite Color Combo

Happy Tuesday morning blogland! It's time for another fun and fabulous challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's.  This week our challenge is to use your favorite color combo. How easy is that?!?!? If you are anything like me, your favorite combo changes. Right now I am on a black and red kick. 
When Cheryl drew this cutie I knew I had to have her!! I have always been a Disney fanatic and Sassy Sally is All Ears was right up my alley. Isn't she fabulous?!  She has Noah is All Ears as well and he is equally adorable. 

I'm not sure who this one is for but I have plenty of fellow Mouseketeers  I can save her for.

I hope you all can join us this week. Pick out your favorite colors and hop on in. 
Remember, if you use a Sassy Cheryl's image you have twice the chance to win!

I think I am going to be the sweetest, coolest, hippest, bestest Grandma ever!! Doesn't every Grandma to be think that? Lol
That's my big news and pretty much what I have been up to lately. 

Now, link up to the Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Challenge and show us what you have been up to this week. It's not too late and if you don't make it in tonight, there will be another one starting tomorrow. Lol

You Make Fun Times Funner

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #127 - Just for Him

Good Morning Blogland! Hope you all survived Monday.
Mine prove to be a little crazy most of the time, so hopefully I made it through too. Lol 
Tuesday means it's time for another fun, fabulous challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's. Crafty Jackie is our hostess again this week and she has picked the theme "Just for Him". I had my image for this week picked out for over a month now and ALMOST changed my mind when I saw Cheryl's new Noah's Tire Swing image. (You gotta go check out her new cuties!!!)  As you can see I chose to stick with Momma's Little Clown with an addition of Bella's Flower. The Ticket Booth is a digital image from Make It Crafty. I can't wait to see what you all come up with this week. Have fun and happy crafting y'all!

I had fun making this little scene for another one of my "LITTLE MONSTERS" for their B-day. I always mention them but I have never shown you a picture of them. It just so happens that I FINALLY have a picture of them all together, so I thought I would share it with you. 

Alex, Brady, Colby, Austin & Ethan
Can you believe all my friends had stinky boys!?!?  They are mean and stinky but they are sweet as sugar sometimes too, and that TOTALLY makes up for it. I love you crazy boys!!!
