Mod Squad Challenge

Goodness Gracious.....


It's been so long, but I just haven't felt real motivated to get crafty lately.  I've missed it, and really hope my creativity comes back soon.  My friend Regina is hosting the challenge over at the 
Mod Squad, and I got a new stamp set in the mail today,
so I thought today would be as good a time as any to try and make something!

The challenge is to make a birthday card with sparkle!  This may not look like a birthday card, but on the inside I wrote.... "I forgot your birthday!" this new set from Unity!!

Thanks so much for looking!

Tiddly Inks DT Call

Goodness it's been a while!

I have been coloring a ton lately though, 
and taking some colored pencil classes.  
Plus, I recently signed up for a lettering class.
  There are so many cute images out there that are really
 bringing back my mojo!!  I've even pulled out my Copics,
and purchased a few more to add to my collection!

Some of the cutest ones on the market right now are from

Here is one of my favorites right now:

Wryn is adorable, isn't she????  Plus, she is so fun to color!!

Tiddly Inks is having a DT call right now and I figured I may as
well throw my hat in the ring.  Nothing to lose, right?
Heck, maybe you'd like to try out too!!

Thanks for looking and have a great week!!

The Greeting Farm Challenge


Big things happening here - I GOT A JOB!!!
Yay me!  I'm very excited to get back into a daily routine.
Seems when I'm home, I tend to do a whole lot of nothing!

I recently purchased the Colored Pencil class from Kit and Clowder,
and WOW!!!  I'm so glad I did.  I've just started the class,
and I've learned so much.  In fact, I'm using my image on
today's card.  This card is for the challenge over at

Just For Fun Challenge

Hello all! 
 I hope wherever you are, you are having a great day!
If you are in the northeast, I hope you love snow!  We have several inches
on the ground here in central Pennsylvania, and it is kinda nice, I gotta admit.
Although, since I'm not working right now, I don't really need to go anywhere,
so I'm allowed to say that.  

Today's card is for a new challenge that is out there.  It is being coordinated by
my stampy friends Giovana and Lee Ann.  It made me think outside of the box and
get out some supplies that I hadn't yet opened!

Just For Fun Challenge

Here is the challenge: 
In our project, we challenge you to use at least two mediums from this list:
ink, acrylic paint, gesso, gelatos, spray inks, embossing paste, 
colored pencils, watercolors, chalks, pastels
And one or more from this list~
fabric, glitter, chipboard, metal, ephemera, washi tape

Here is my card -

I used watercolors, embossing paste and glitter.  For those of you that don't know it,
I hate glitter.  I can't stand when it gets everywhere!  However, I sucked it up and used
it for this card.

I hope you've enjoyed this, and I hope you play along with us.

Have a great day.
