You Blow Me Away

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #151 - Think Pink

Happy Tuesday! Has everyone settled into the New Year? I am FINALLY getting the date
 right when I write it now. Took me long enough, huh? Valentine's Day is right around the corner 
so I thought I would get a head start on some "lovey" cards. 
I am hostessing this week's challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's. I chose the theme "Think Pink". 
Mainly because I just love pink, but I also have been finding the prettiest pink papers!!
I had three different images colored for this card but ended up with one of Cheryl's older images. (one of my favorites) I just love this little Bubble Blower digi. I have cropped her and done a close up of just her face for this one. I wanted to focus on the bubble. Isn't she adorable? 

Thanks to everyone who played along in the Birthday challenge last week.  We love seeing all your beautiful cards each week. Hope you all can play along this week. 
Happy Crafting Y'all!!

You're How Old?!?

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #150 - Birthday

Have we really almost reached the end of January already????
Well, it's Tuesday regardless and that means it's time for another challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's. 
I had the honor of choosing the theme this week. We are going to be celebrating Birthdays!
I was feeling "Sassy" this week and decided to make a card that might get a snicker or gasp when it is opened. I may need it soon, my friends are getting a little older...but not me! 

I am sorry that I missed out on last weeks challenge but as some of you may know, I am going to be a Grandma REAL SOON!! We had family in town last weekend for the baby shower and it was kind of hectic. After things calmed down I cleaned my terribly messy craft area and was able to pull together a card for this week. I miss it when I don't have my "Happy Time". Lol
Looking forward to seeing all of your wonderful Birthday creations this week. 
Happy Crafting Y'all!!

Have you seen Cheryl's new Blog, Illustrated by Cheryl?  She has some wonderful coloring tutorials and excerpts from her sketch journal. It gives you a chance to see her images in the sketch stage before she makes them into digis and gives you an idea about where she gets her inspiration from. 

Check it out!!!

Sending You a Little Prayer

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #148 - Clean and Simple

This week's challenge at Sassy Cheryl's is brought to you by the letter "P", for Pat! She has chosen 
Clean and Simple as her theme just to make me bite my finger nails off. Lol!
I can NOT lie...I peeked at the other Sassy Girl's cards already and they are FABULOUS! 

I would like to say that I am going to try to be a better blogger this year. I have let myself get lazy. I do go around and see all my Bloggie Buddies' cards but haven't taken the time to leave some love. No excuses, just know that I will try to do better. 

I made my card this week for a dear Friend and Family member who lost a loved one.
I am hoping this card brings her some peace of mind. 
This image is one of Cheryl's Praying for Peace images. She also has a little boy. They are both so sweet.
I decided to paper piece my image to take place of  my usual froo-froo.   

Thanks for all of you who joined in last week. We can't wait to see you at Sassy Cheryl's again.
Happy crafting y'all!!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #147 - Anything Goes
 (use your fave Sassy Cheryl image)

Happy New Year!!
Where has 2012 gone???? I swear, the older I get, the faster time flies. 
We are kicking off the New Year with a super fun challenge at Sassy Cheryl's. It's a "Anything Goes" challenge using your favorite Sassy Cheryl image.  I usually pick my image for the week by looking through my image folder. Each week one of Cheryl's cuties talks to me. This week it was her Little Baker image. 
Isn't she adorable?!? AND she is in the $1.00 bin in Sassy Cheryl's Shop!! 
Last week's Snowman challenge ran for two weeks, but we are back on schedule with our weekly challenge.
We would love for you to join us. You can check out my other Sassy DT members cards for some more inspiration HERE. I'm sure they have created something fabulous for you. 

I made this card for my Super crafty friend, Kim of Oak Pond Creations
She turned 29 again yesterday!! (lol) 
She is a big dork like me and likes the movie Napoleon Dynamite...hence, the sentiment. 
Happy Birthday Kim!!!
