Welcome Home Baby Girl

Just stopping in for a quick post. Today my friend's baby came home from the hospital after spending the past month there. I made this card to welcome her home. I used this weeks sketch from Christian Paper Crafts (CPCST54), and some dp from DCWV (Nana's Nursery). The stamp is from Cloud9 that I got at Joann's a few months ago.
That's it for tonight, got a busy day tomorrow so have a wonderful night.
Blessings & Love

Delightful & Delicious

Had a blast at Verve's Beach Party Release Party on Friday. Unfortunately I didn't win anything, but I enjoyed playing along. I forgot to post another challenge card I made for Verve's Ready, Set and Stamp challenge using Delightful & Delicious. A great stamp set that I haven't used as much as I thought, but taking a second look at it I see so many possibilities to mix it with other sets. For this card I went shabby chic with a coffee color. The sketch is from Mercy's sketch challenge#69. I made a few cards over the weekend , but need to take photos so I will be back in a few days. Have a wonderful Monday! LOVE & BLESSINGS

What a busy week this has been. The schools are doing STAR testing, so seniors had the craziest school hours possible since they don't take them.TGIF!'s time for Verve's Beach Party Release Party tonight. I can't believe I got all 5 challenges done on time. This graduation card is for the 5th sketch challenge. I used Pink Paislee dp and some Zva crystal flourishes. I love how this turned out.
This card is for sketch challenge#4. Finally got a chance to use this stamp that I've had for a few months.

Sketch challenge #3 is a Mother's Day card for a friend who has always been there for me, she is a great inspiration as well.

I used sketch #2 for a wedding card and is also for the Bible Verse Thursday Challenge where the theme is love. Now I have a wedding card handy for the next person getting married.

Challenge #1 is a color challenge using aqua, orange and green. Those are great colors for a summer birthday, so that's what I went with.

Just a few more hours until the Release Party so I gotta get rested and get the credit card ready. I'll let you know how the party went and if I won anything!

I Won Some Blog Candy

I won my first Blog Candy from Martine at The Craft Table. It was this gorgeous Origins DP from Basic Grey. I got it just in time to make this Mother's Day card for the Mojo Monday Sketch #134. This is such a great sketch. Of course I pulled out my Verve stamps and Prima flowers. Can't go wrong with those two together. This is a short post with only one card because we have to get up early to go to a new student orientation at CSUEB for my daughter. I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. High school graduation is in 2 months. Love & Blessings

Catching Up

Time has gotten away from me once again with so much going on. My three nieces from Georgia were here for the week after Easter. I haven't seen them in a couple of years, so it was great spending time with them. For this card I used some new dp I got from SEI called Claire. I entered this into the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge where the theme was love.

The first of many Mother's Day cards I need to make. Hopefully I can get them all done by the end of this month.
I just entered this into the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge and Mercy's Sketch #69. Funny thing about this card is that I didn't realize my panel was crooked until I took the picture. Oh well I still like it.
