Round n Round...

Hi everyone! Hope all is well with everybody! I've been super busy this past week, kiddos were on Spring break, and that means every few minutes I hear.... "MOMMMM!" I tried to get some work done in the morning before they woke up, luckily they like to sleep in! But once they are up, it's breakfast, then lunch, and dinner around the corner. The week just flew by and now it's back to school!
This week at Lollipop Crafts, Tammy is hosting a super fun challenge...create a card/project that is NOT SQUARE OR RECTANGLE! Our fabulous sponsor for the week is Just Some Lines. They have adorable images! Please stop by Lollipop Crafts' blog to get all the deets on the challenge, and your chance to win a fab prize from JSL!

For my card, I picked the sweetest lil'girl in a Petit Pot.
Stickles found its way back! and so did some Liquid Pearls. Was kinda limited on space for a bow, but I found the perfect spot! :P

A few posts earlier, I mentioned it was time for some YUMMY candy to celebrate two fun occasions! I'm putting together something sweet...just a few more things to finish up...then I'll be ready to share it all!!

Thanks for stopping by...and come back soon! ; )

Butterflies are here...

Did everyone enjoy their weekend? Mine was WET! and the forecast is for rain all week! :q  To look on the bright side of it, when the storm rolls over, we'll be left with fresh spring air and soon butterflies will be  fluttering about! But wait, over at Lollipop Crafts, the BUTTERFLIES have arrived early!! Denise is challenging you to create with butterflies on your project. Our fabulous sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish and they have an amazing prize for one lucky winner!
Head over to the Lollipop Crafts challenge and see the pretty creations the DT made this week!

For my card this week, I chose Marci with Rose from La-La Land Crafts. She is so pretty and the butterflies love her sweet rose!

I've had this digi for a while now, but never had a chance to color her until now. But I think I'm in LUV!!!
She is adorable and her outfits are so fun to color and the newest release is super cute! I'll have to try Luka next! Both Marci and Luka is available here.

DZ Doodles...

Today I have a card to share featuring our new sponsor, DZ Doodles, at Lollipop Crafts this week.
There's still time to play along our LACE challenge, and have a chance to win 2 digi images of your choice from DZ Doodles.  Pop on over and take a look at all the cute images available at their store!
This is a darling little girl named Chloee with a big pretty hat and she can be colored for any occassion.

Followed a sketch from Sketch Saturday, dp are Basic Grey Kioshi collection, and used CB swirl embossing folder for the background. I love the MS fence punch, but often it doesn't look quite right on my cards, but this one did just perfect! For more inspiration take a peek at what our DT team has made!

Yesterday was my birthday, and I just wanna say that it was one of the best ones I've ever had! What made this birthday a bit more special was all the sweet, heart-warming bday wishes from the wonderful ladies I've met through blogland. Thank You for making my day extra special!!

Spotlight: Meljen's and a Special Card...

Hi all! Just here to share a card, or two, with everyone. At Lollipop Crafts this week, our sponsor is Meljen's Designs. They have some irresistible sweet images, and the prize up for grabs this week is 4 digis of winner's choice!!
For my card, I chose the Mushroom Mouse. He is soooo cute reading his book under the BIG mushroom!

I also used my new Whimsy Sentiments Collection stamps...they are so fun and perfect for all birthdays!
Here's a close-up of the cutie...just love that adorable tiny ladybug!

I have a special card to share today. My 10yo son decided to color along with me to showcase Meljen's Designs. He loves dragons because he was born in the lunar year of the Dragon. So he chose "Dragon's Little Friend" image to color using Copics, and picked papers from the BG Oliver collection. With a little help from me, we put it all together and came up with this...

Here a close-up of his awsome coloring job!

Sorry for the long post ... thanks for stopping by! ;)

Lollipop Challenge #29

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! This week is my turn to host the challenge at Lollipop Crafts. Kinda nerve wreckin', being my first, but so far so good! Now, my challenge is to create something with a CRITTER! That shouldn't be hard...there are so many cute furry critters to choose from! Even the scariest, creepiest monsters are so adorable! Our sponsor this week is Meljen's Designs (tons of whimsy critters there!), and for my card I chose the sweet Cuddle Dragon...

I followed a sketch from Fuzzy Wuzzy, a color recipe from Anita Be Stamping, and wouldn't you know it Meljen's Design challenge is also to use an animal. Can't get any better than that!

I kept away from stickles and glossy accents this time, just wanted to keep it clean and simple. I didn't add any sentiment yet, so this sweetest dragon can be for anything!
Now head on over to Lollipop Crafts and check out all the incredibly cute creations the team have made this week! It's gonna be fun and easy to play along, with a chance to win some cute digis!

Thanks for stopping by! ;)

ooh...almost forgot to link my card to the Moxie FabWorld's Stamping with Markers Challenge!
