Feel Better Soon & We love ya!

Yesterday afternoon I made a card and altered a baby jar with kisses in it to give to one of our VERY close family friend...she is really ill and in the hospital. I thought I'd make her a little something to try and cheer her up...please I ask that everyone keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you so much!

Pink Papery Studio Challenge & Some Blog Candy

The power of 3 was this weeks Pink Papery Challenge. We were to use 3 of anything on our card as long as it was 3 of something. I used 3 bling embellishments on my card along with one of the "NEWEST Doodle Girls digital images that will be available to purchase in the next few days in the Pink Papery store. Isn't she just too cute??? She can hold anything in her hands! The sentiment I used was from the Angel Co. set. I also used a sketch from My Sketch challenge to inspire me posted here

Be sure to visit all of the Pink Papery's DT girls blogs (linked on my sidebar). They also have some great cards to share for today's power of 3 challenge.

Kimmie's got a special little treat for you as well. Play along this week with us DT girls on this power of 3 challenge. You don't need to use PPS image for now, but follow our guidelines for "The Power of 3" and link it back to Kimmy''s blog here on this post . One random winner will receive some Pink Papery Studios stamped and/or printed images. The winner will be announced on Kimmie's blog next Wed. so hurry and go create your card and post it in Kimmie's comments!

The Angel Co. - Blog Candy!

This last Sunday was my Angel Co. open house. I had a GREAT turnout with lots of fun ladies and great projects! I was able to also get enough ladies to join another circle this year but instead of doing the get together every month I decided to do them every other month...since the months do fly by.

So for the open house we made 1 card and a candy bar holder.

One night as I was surfing blog land I came across Christyne blog. She had posted the cutest candy bar pouches that I just HAD to teach the ladies at my open house how to do. So I emailed Christyne getting permission to do so and of course the directions...she was SO sweet to email me back with instructions and say YES that she was honored that I wanted to teach this at my open house. You have to go drop by her blog and check out her ADORABLE candy bar pouches
here are the ones that we made in the class...

We used spellbinder dies from the hearts and the stamp set that we used was from the Angel Co. called Sweet Skunks and the paper Mimi. We colored the flowers with prisma pencils and 3d'ed some of the roses to give them a little lift!

I just ordered the flamingo stamp set called Tickled Pink from the Angel Co. and I just new I had to use this at the open's just too cute! The words are so girly that come with this set..I just love'em. The paper was also from the Mimi collection.

Here are two other cards I made using the same set and the same paper collection just to show you a few more images from the set.

So now on to some blog candy...I have been wanting to do this for a while now. So if you comment here and let me know you want to be entered in the drawing along with some love on my creations...I will enter you in a drawing to win...

1. All the supplies to make the 2 projects we made at my open house along with some images of both Sweet Skunks & Tickled Pink and another little surprise!

2. I will pick a name on Sunday and announce the winner on Monday, Feb. 2nd. So that gives you a whole week to give everyone a chance to leave a comment here on this post :)

3. If you would like to make a post on your blog (if you have one) letting your friends know about my blog candy feel free to do so. The more the merrier!

Good Luck!

Pink Papery Altered Item Challenge

YAY! my blog is finally coming back together after I tore it all apart and deleted ALL of my side bars and links last night! I was up till 3am...I'm so out of it right now LOL! but as long as my blogs back together then I'm A-OK haha! I figured I needed a new layout..So I made it all up and didn't realize it was gonna take all my links with it. Anyways...I'm starting to get my links back slowly but surely....If you have any links to card sketch blog challenges I'd really appreciate it if you left me the link so I can start my list back up because I can't remember which ones I had and boy do I love my sketch challenges!

This weeks Pink Papery Challenge was to alter something...I drink LOTS of crystal light tea (target brand) and I keep all the containers thinking one day I will "need" these for something. Well the day has come and I used one up for this weeks challenge. I really LOVE the way this came out...I used the digital images by Trafalgarssquare called My Friend & I set. You can purchase it at Pink Papery Studio's store so head on over to check them out....they have some adorable images/stamps.

OHHH and I also made a card to match. The card that I made I used a sketch from Poetic Artistry...I'm a little behind on sketches there..I just LOVE her sketches but you can find the one I did here it's week #66 sketch.

Pink Papery Metallic Challenge

Well I think I'm alive...late last night my tummy was hurting me REALLY bad. My hubby had the flu Sunday so, I was thinking maybe I was starting to get it. Which of course was praying I wouldn't...I tried to keep the house clean, my hands washed and lysol sprayed. Well I was right...5am it hit me hard. I went to the Dr. around 10:30am because I was in so much pain. He said I had the stomach flu and gave me a shot in they bum so the nausea could go away. I slept ALL day long and just woke up now. I'm feeling better my body hurts really bad still. It feels like I was ran over with a truck! I'm glad the nausea is away that's what really matters.

Anyways...I'm here posting my challenge a little late in the day. I just had no energy to do it earlier. Our challenge for Pink Papery was to use metallic on our cards today. My scalloped circle, the glitter and the ribbon is metallic as well as the stars on the background. The digital stamp is by Whimsy Studios called Her first Dance you can purchase it here at the Pink Papery store

After I was done with the challenge card yesterday I decided to make another. On this card I was inspired by the sketch that Jessica's daughter drew up here . Jessica is one of the DT members for Pink Papery Studio's. Thanks Jessica for the sketch challenge.

This was also a digital image that I used for this card. It's a by Whimsy Studios and is called devil's food cake stamp.
