Go Team!

Computer troubles have made me late getting my card posted for today's Oldie But Goodie over at Catch the Bug. I've been glued to the TV with baseball and hockey going on right now. Being from Pittsburgh means I'm rooting for the Pirates and the Penguins! Of course I had to go with out beloved black and gold colors too on my card where I used AKV Too Baseball - Batter from Bugaboo. The Penguins are in the semi-finals for the Stanley Cup...Let's Go Pens!!!!!

Gimme the Beach!!

I'd much rather be at the beach than putting up with the snow, yes I said snow, we had Sunday!! And of course it had to happen during my son's baseball game!!! Our beach vacation is scheduled for mid July...and I can't wait!!! My card uses from Beach Blanket Girl and Beach Combers paper, both from Imagine That. While the image was still in the die after cutting it out, I sponged on some tan and blue inks to remind me of the clear blue sky and warm sand. Awwwww, the joys of summer!!

Poodles of Fun

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the Anything Goes challenge goin' on over at Love to Scrap. I dug through my pile of printed off digis and look what I found...this cutie image and sentiment from the Doodle Pantry set Poodles of Fun. I love all the different colors these poodles come in!! Surprise, I didn't print off the digital papers included in the set, went for some pattern paper scraps instead. Sure hope you can join in on the fun of the Anything Goes challenge over at Love to Scrap.

Hey There Girlfriend

Our Clean & Simple challenge this week over at The Outlawz is all about those special ladies in your life. My friends mean so much to me that I thought I would make (and send!!) this card out to one of them. I can't believe I went with more soft, subtle colors this time, that is so not like me!! The pops of black are just perfect I think. I love creating my own background with stamps!

A Gem of a Challenge - Flowers
Crafty Friends Challenge - In the Garden
Kitty Bee Designs - Girly Cards
Simon Says Stamp - Flowers
The Sisterhood of Crafters - No Designer Paper
Creative With Stamps - CAS

Flowers Galore

We have a new challenge this week over at Catch the Bug and the theme is Flowers Galore. I found this sweet Bugaboo image, Flower Ladybug Love, in my pile of already printed images. In case you're wondering, yes, I have a very large pile of printed digis that were meant for a project but just never got done!! I sure hope you can join us this week at Catch the Bug for our Flowers Galore challenge.
