Hot Fun in the Summertime!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #159 - Favorite Color Combo

Happy Tuesday Blogland friends!! 
It's time for another crafty challenge at Sassy Cheryl's. Our Sassy Sistah Cathy, over at Ink It Up and Stamp it Out with Cathy Edgar is our hostess with the mostest. She want's us to use our favorite color combo!!
I have so many favorite color combinations and I really think it depends on my mood. When I was looking through my stash of papers blue and green were jumping out at me. I wonder what mood that means I was in? Does anyone know? If you do, I would love for you to tell me. Lol
So, I had colors in mind and moved on to my image. This image of Sally called Lazy Afternoon was just begging me to pick her. So I obliged. The papers just seemed to fall into place after that. 

I hope this card brings you all a little bit of Summer on this extended Winter of cold. 
Stupid Groundhog!! (is he ever right???)

We love seeing all your wonderful creations.

Love Story

Good Morning! Hope your week will get off to a GREAT start. 
I just wanted to share a card I made for one of my Hubby's co-workers. He wanted a card for his wife for their anniversary and it HAD to have purple in it. I guess that purple must be his wife's favorite color. 
I did a little something different than what I usually do and I had a BLAST doing it. I just wanted to share with you.

Happy Birthday Daddy!!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #158 - Fancy Edges, Die Cuts and Punches

Good Tuesday morning to you all!! It's time for me to share another Sassy Cheryl's Challenge card. 
This week's challenge is brought to you by our lovely and talented Judy.  She has chosen the theme Fancy Edges, Die Cuts and Punches. Sounds like a pass to have a good time to me. These are the things that make a card grab your attention. I chose Cheryl's cutie, "Mama's Little Clown" for my card this week. I had some coloring time with my Mom and crafty friends, Kim of Oak Pond Creations  and Linda of Turtle in the Sand on Saturday. This is one of the images I colored. We had such a great time. We need to do that a little more frequently girls!! I gave this card to my Daddy for his Birthday. He just celebrated his 69th Birthday. Happy Birthday Daddy, you're the best!

I hope you can take some time this week and play along in the challenge. You know you want to, it's gonna be lots of  fun! Looking forward to seeing your creations.
Happy CraftingY'all!!

Happy Tuesday all you Sassy Cheryl Fans!! It's time for our weekly challenge. This week our Irish Lass Jackie, over at Jackie's Space, has chosen the theme Green and White, imagine that!

I hate that I missed last week's challenge. We were all feeling a little under the weather at my house last week. I'm happy to say we are all feeling better. I think it may have had something to do with the weather. It has been gorgeous here. I can see Spring...it's right around the corner. WooHoo!!
