{ April Aloha RAK Group Signups }

It is that time again. If you would like to join in for April please leave a comment to let me know that would like to join us. If this is your first time with the group, please email me with your mailing addy and email. Also, you can click on the righthand sidebar for all the details about the group. Hope you can join us for April.

I would also, like to let everyone know that Jen has offered to take the group back starting in May. I will send out a reminder next month, but just thought I would let everyone know now that you will have to start visiting Jen for your signups starting with the May group. Thank you all that have joined in since I took it over from Jen in the fall. It has been so much fun!

{ Wishing You A Very Happy Day }

Wow! Time sure does fly! I can't believe it's been a week and a half since I last posted. So Sorry! The girls were on Spring Break last week...and we actually were busy for the most part. So not much time for creating and quite frankly I have not really had much inspiration for creating. I have done a TON of coloring with my Copics and decided that I MUST create some cards with all these images before I color anything new! So that is my goal for the up coming week...hopefully!

Here is an old one I had not posted yet. Another Anya creation for ya. This is Princess Anya. She is a very popular image in my household as you can well image. ;0) I was quite happy with this one. I know that this was inspired by a sketch, but I can not remember which one! If I think of it I will let you all know.

I am off to take a pic of my Christmas Card Challenge samples. I have had them done for awhile, just no time to get them posted...sorry! And I also have my March Aloha RAK to show you all too. Back soon...

{ Christmas Card Challenge #3 }

{ Welcome Spring! }

What a gorgeous day out there today! Took the girls to the park for a bit. Although the first one we went to was just one BIG puddle. The next one was better...though still covered in snow, but at least they did not get soaked!! This is the first official day of Spring Break for my girls. Which means I have the next 6 days off...hopefully we all get through it without strangling each other! Here is another creation from a few weeks ago. I decided to try out my Copics with a Hanna image. I quite like the way this one turned out. I also love this DP(Imaginisce).

Hubby and I have been looking at getting a new TV. We have the Tax refund now, so I think we might pick it up tonight!! Woohoo!! Now we are not going all out...our living room is quite small...but still we are going from an old 27" to a new 42" LCD Flatscreen!! Woohoo!! Can't wait to watch movies and play Wii all weekend!

Thanks for stoppin' by and hopefully I will get my Challenge sample up this weekend...in between movies. ;0)

{ Late in posting...}

I am so bad at posting RAKS lately. I do apologize to those of you who have sent them. I do email people to let them know that I received them...just forget to post them! Please check these out!

I have been playing along with Teri's One Card RAK group the past few months and this was my first RAK partner...Eunice. I just loved this card...and so did my girls! I believe that Eunice has a much better group of photos on her blog so go check it out! Thanks again Eunice.

For March I was matched up with Denise...who was mighty quick on her RAK. I think I received this one a few weeks ago and just set hers out yesterday!! This was her first Magnolia card and I think she did a fabulous job! Go check out Denise's blog for more awesome creations. Thanks again, Denise.

I also recieved my Blog Candy winnings from Our Craft Lounge this past week too! I have not cracked it open yet, but will have to sometime this week. I am thinkin' those flowers are gonna be fun to color!

Back later with another new creation.

I am off to my appointment with the surgeon tomorrow...wish me luck!

{ MojoMonday #75 }

I know, I know...this one was a little late. Funny thing is, I actually made this in time, just forgot to post it in time! I have been feeling quite lousy the past few weeks...well since January really, but REALLY lousy the past few weeks. I am struggling with my Gallbladder right now...not fun! I go see the surgeon next Wednesday...so hopefully he will take this thing out...and soon!

Okay enough of my whining...onto the card! This one was inspired by MojoMonday sketch #75 This one was a hugh challenge for me! I just really struggled with this sketch. I like it...I think. Still not 100% sure. I do love this Tangerine Tango color though! And how could you not love a Hibiscus?

Okay, off to take a shower and get some stuff done today! Thanks for stoppin' by.

{ Ahh Spring...Not! }

I am soooooo ready for this winter to end. And just when you thought you could see the light. BAM!! We got hit with a nice little winter storm last night and -27C windchills today. Yuck! I really didn't want to go out today, but my youngest had her Ballet exam today. We are now home and I am planning on spending the day at home and maybe doing some stamping...if the basement is not too cold!

Thought I would share another creation with you all today. This one I really love. This stamp is so fun to color...Angel Company's Gerber Daisy. And of course another Mojo Monday sketch...MojoMonday #52. Not much else to say about this one other than...I love it!

Thanks for stoppin' by today. Oh...you will be seeing even more Greeting Farm creations soon. I received my winnings from Marie...Skater Ian and Digi Geisha Anya... and I also picked up a couple of Digi images lastnight too...Dorothy Anya and Pretty Head Lily!! I am so happy to report that my printer works with the Copics!! I just printed the images on my Staples paper and I was able to color the images with no problems!! Woohoo!!

{ Some Old Mojo }

Just thought I would do a quick post before I head off to bed. I was just loading some new photos up on my computer and I have a lot to share...for a change. But one at a time!Not sure I love this card, but I do love the image. This was an image that I stamped off of Merlie at our January Calgal night. I just love this little guy...not sure what company he is from. This sketch is MojoMonday #28...an older one. I had not pulled out any of my background stamps in awhile and decided to use my favorite one...Sanded.

Well off to bed...hopefully I can get some rest!

Thanks for stoppin' by...

{ Always look on the... }

...bright side of life. How so very true! Here is a creation I did last week using an image that I swiped during our January CalGal night. I love this Fluffles image...might have to get this one for myself one day. Not too sure where this sketch came from...but my guess is that it is one of Julee's sketches. I really love this Tangerine Tango color. I have never really been an orange kinda girl, but this really does make me happy.

Thanks for stoppin by...

** This post will remain sticky until March 1st. Please scroll down for new posts **

It is time for Tracy's Christmas Card Challenge. Are you ready? This months challenge is a 'simple' one. That's right. I for one have a hard time with 'simple' cards. I always want to keep adding more stuff to it. So with that in mind here is your Challenge...

* You MUST make 5 cards...they do not have to all be exactly the same but they must use the same MAIN image

* Your cards MUST be square...any size you choose

* Your cards MUST not have a sentiment on the front...inside only

There you have it. Simple enough...but trust me this one will be a challenge.

So once again...you have until 11:59PM(MST) February 28th to post your cards on your blog and leave me a comment on this post with a link or email me a photo of all 5 cards and I will post a pic for you on my blog once the challenge date is complete. A random winner will be selected and will receive a small RAK from me as a thank you for playin' along.

I know that my photo only has 1 card. I ran out of time and wanted to get this post up. I promise to post another pic of all 5 cards once I get them done...just to show you that I have completed my own challenge! It is hard to tell in this photo, but I scored a boarder around the edge of my card and also added some glitter pen to the outer edge of the top layer of the snowflake. I love this snowflake die! Yes, another Cricut creation.

Okay...go get your 'simple' on...
