Power Poppy Challenge and some Treats for Friends

Hi there!

Gosh, can't believe I haven't posted in a few weeks!

I'm going to stop jabbering and share what I worked on last week and last night!

Last night, I colored this image, and made this card today, for the challenge at Power Poppy. The  'You Say It's Your Birthday' challenge, just requires a birthday card! I used the 'Layer Cake' digital stamp set for the card. If you've never shopped there, you really should! Marcella is a St. Louis girl, and so very talented! Her images are just gorgeous, and such fun to create with.

So...last week, I made these for some friends at church:

You know how sometimes you get a $1 stamp someplace and use it until you wear it out? Yep, that's this one! Found it at Michael's I think, about 5-6 years ago, and reach for it a lot. Then, while shopping at Schnuck's, I saw these Lindt Truffle packages, and thought, AHA! Hope they liked them!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Hugs and smiles!

Be Thankful

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all staying safe from fires, and in our case, warm from the cold. 

I thought I'd pop in today with a card I made for the 'Be Thankful' challenge at Power Poppy.

I used THIS free digital image for my card.

Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Take care, and be creative!!!

Freezin' Season


I'm so excited about this sweet digi image that I snagged from 7 Kids College Fund the other day. They had a 24 hour 'free image' giveaway on Facebook, and you all know that I cannot resist a cute snowman!

This sweetie was colored with Copic markers, and was truly a 1/2 hour card, start to finish!

Here it is:

How cute is this?

If you don't follow them already, be sure to do so! It's a fun group!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Special Birthday Challenge at Scor-Pal

Hi everyone!

Yikes! It's November! It was a rainy, nasty Halloween here. We were expecting about 400-600 trick or treaters, and probably had 100. They got lots of candy from us, as we didn't want it left over!

It's time for a new monthly challenge on the Scor-Pal blog - 'Special Birthday'. Creations need to include more than one score line, and a 'Special Birthday' theme.  

Here is my project for this month. I'm not sure who will get this, but I hope they like it!

Did you know that Scor-Pal has lots of fun things in their store? Yep! They have dies,
glitter markers, Pocket Pal pages, Aqua markers, watercolor just have to go look and see.

Here is a card I made using this die set:

The top piece is the cutest little envelope, but I didn't use it for this.
I used the little note card (the bottom) piece, and used it as the card part of my joy fold card.

Then I decided I needed a matching gift, so here's what I made:

And here is a photo of the set together:

So, what do you think?

Thanks for all of you who are emailing to inquire about my health. I had my follow-up doctor appointment on October 15th. I still have pneumonia (my hospitalization was June 24th!), but...I am better! So overall, it's good news. I'm just a very impatient patient - I want to be 100% right now!

For these project, I used my Scor-Pal Eighths, 1/2" Scor-Tape, & 1/4" Scor-Tape.

Thanks for looking! 

I hope to see your birthday creations in our 'Special Birthday' Scor-Pal challenge!

We also have a ton of inspiration on our Projects on the Scor-Pal website and also on our Pinterest Board to help you get creative!Challenge at Scor-Pal! 

Happy November, everyone!
