Happy Fall Y'all!!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #134 - Inspiration Photo

Happy Tuesday again Blogland! Time for the weekly Sassy Cheryl's Challenge.
This week we  are using an inspirational picture for our challenge. Dawn has picked a super fun image for us to work with. I love the inspirational picture challenges because it is always so much fun to see how each person interprets the picture. I confess... I peeked at my Sassy DT-mates cards and they are fabulous!! You will see what I mean when you see them. 

Here is Dawn's pick for the inspiration photo. It's a beauty, right? Just take a look at the picture and pull out whatever inspires you and get crafty with it. You know, kind of like "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It". Lol

I have been trying so hard to keep up with all of my bloggy friends and their awesome creations. I never seem to have enough time to sit and comment or chit-chat, but that doesn't mean I'm not stopping to take a look. Hopefully I will be able to get around and share the love more often. You all inspire me so mush every day. Don't you wish we could all just sit around and get crafty all the time? 
What a GREAT turn out for last week's "To Die For" challenge...WOW! Such beautiful creations you all submitted. I can't wait to see what you all come up with from this weeks "Photo Inspiration" challenge. 
Have a terrific week and Happy Crafting Y'all!!!

Clowning Around for Cindy's Birthday

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #133 - To Die For

Good Morning Blogland! We survived another Monday and have made it to Tuesday. 
That means it's time for another fun challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's and it's "To Die For"!! (Lol) 
This week's challenge theme was the clever idea of our crafty & Sassy DT member Dawn. She wants to see some die cuts on all those beautiful entries. There are so many die cuts out there and I can't wait to see which ones you guys choose.  
I chose a couple die cuts by Tim Holtz for my card this week. I paired them with Sassy Sally Clowns Around. Isn't she adorable?!?! I knew I just had to have her when I saw her. Cheryl also has another clown called Momma's Little Clown. He is just as sweet as Sally. 
Thanks so much for joining us in last week's sketch challenge. All the entries were beautiful. 

I made this card for my Best Friend of 17 years. Her name is Cindy (a.k.a. Cindy Lou) and her Birthday was Monday. So, everyone join me in wishing Cindy a HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!

Happy Cake Day Samantha!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #132 - A Sketch

This week's challenge theme at Sassy Cheryl's is a fabulous sketch made by our crafty DT member, Dawn
I just love following a sketch and I don't know why I don't do it more often. I chose to use Avery Celebrates with Cake for my image this week. It was my Niece Samantha's 9th Birthday yesterday and this is the card I made for her. She is such a sweetie just like little Avery.  I have used this image before and realized after I was finished that I just can't help using my crimper on kraft paper with with it. Lol

Dawn has made it really fun and easy to play along this week. We sure hope to see more of your beautiful creations this week. Thanks to all you crafty people who joined us in last weeks Got the Blues? challenge. 
Just follow the sketch below and get creative!!!

Little Boy Blue

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #131- Got The Blues?

Good Tuesday Morning to you all! I hope you are all well rested and ready for the day. I actually had TWO days off this weekend because of the Labor Day weekend here in The States. WooHoo!! I managed to get my card done with a few hours to spare. I had such a fun time working with Noah and Patches.
I chose this week's challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's and it is all about BLUE! I have to confess that I peeked in the folder and saw my Sassy Sister's cards already and you are in for a treat!! Our Sassy boss lady has been on one heck of a creative streak lately and has really given us some amazing images to play with. Hop on over and check them out HERE

I made this card for my Nephew Jonathan (aka: Finn). He had knee surgery last week and is doing well but still has a way to go in his recovery. I know it's going to be soooo hard for him not to be "on the go".  He is always so full of energy and is ALL BOY! I love you Finny and hope you have a speedy recovery. Sending you big bear (((( hugs)))). 

Thanks so much to all of you who played in last week's Back 2 School challenge. We sure hope to see you all again this week. Get those BLUES out and get crafty!!!
