{ Lovin' Spring! }

Wow! What beautiful weather we have been having this week! A bit windy today and over cast a wee bit, but still a beautiful day. I got the backyard raked and watered today...looks much better.

We had a bit of a stressful day yesterday. Another visit to the dentist. Both girls had checkups and then my oldest had to have 4 teeth pulled! Nothing wrong with the teeth, but we need to make room to get her teeth straightened out and then we will have to work some more down the road...too many teeth and not enough room. Well more like just not enough room. They used some sedation dentistry on her this go around. She was not out, but she was so doped up that she was much easier to handle. I so wish I had had a video camera on her though. Must admit I was laughing quite a few times. ;0) But the actually extraction was easy peasy! I was shocked at how easily those suckers came out! But no more dentist for another year. And hopefully we can keep those teeth clean and then we only have to worry about when it is time for the dreaded braces!

I found a card I had not posted yet. This was another creation from our March CalGal night. Nancy had forced me to work on another sketch after I had done the one Allison supplied us with. It is pretty simple. Not lovin' it, but its okay.

Thanks for stoppin' by...

{ TCC #4 }

It's that time again. I apologize for being late. My Internet was down most of the day yesterday.

This months Christmas Card Challenge will be a repeat of one we did last year. This month your challenge will be to use DP(Designer Paper) as your main image. You will also need to use at least 2 different embellishments. Once again you are to complete 5 cards(all the same or different...your choice)

Please leave a link to your cards on this post or email me a photo of your cards. The deadline is Friday April 30th @ 11:59 MST. Have fun! And remember...creating a Christmas 3D project will get you extra entries into the next random draw at the end of June! I did not get a chance to complete a 3d project this month yet...I have not found one I like yet...but if and when I do I will add it to this post.

Now here are my samples for this months Challenge...

I can't wait to see what everyone does with this months challenge!

{ A Calgal Challenge }

I am somewhat late on getting this one posted. This is actually my card that I made from our March Calgal night. I was not really lovin' this one at all so I was stalling posting it. ;0)

I borrowed the sentiment stamp from Nancy...love this one. I actually don't use Orchid Opulence a lot, but when I do use it I quite like it.

What does everyone think about the new SU color changes. There really is only 1 color that I will miss...Really Rust. I use it quite a lot, but there are a few new colors I can see me using just as much. I like the idea of less colors actually...less money I have to spend!! ;0)

Have a great day and hopefully it is nice and sunny where you are today. Not snowy and gloomy like here!!

{ Where's the Mojo? }

I think I have lost mine! Sorry for not posting much lately. To be honest I just have not had it in me the last little while. Not sure why. Just not feeling inspired to do much, if any stamping. A little break is not a bad thing. I have been doing other things though. You can check out my Amigurumi blog and I also picked up some stitching(cross-stitch) this week. I have not done any stitching since before my oldest was born(almost 9 years)!

I did realize though that I have a few creations that I had not shared with you all yet. I made this one about a month ago now. I know I used a sketch for inspiration, but can not remember which one I used...sorry.

Well, I am off to Calgals tonight...so hopefully I will find some Mojo and make something presentable!!
