I'm moustache smitten

Happy Wednesday/ hump day!.  I hope you are enjoying you week this far.  Today will be my last post before I leave for vacation, so I am a bit antsy to go.  It is a very much needed vacation and I am counting down the work days...LOL
    As always, Wednesdays are challenge day of at Stampotique Originals and this week Sue is hosting and here is what she had to say:

Good morning everyone, it's Sue here and I'm delighted to be hosting this weeks challenge. I'm sure that every crafter has had that block where their mojo has packed it's bags and gone on holiday. I know I've sat and looked at a sheet of card and had no ideas at all. One way I've got to get over this is just to decide what size or shape I want to make. So I pick a card or a tag, or in this case a postcard. Postcards are great fun and it's amazing how much you can get on a 6x4 (inches) area. So this week I would like you to make a postcard. Have Fun!
    Sue came up with a fabulous challenge, and I took it literally, and made a 4x6 postcard.
I don't know why I didn't think of this earlier, as this was super fun to create.  I used Smitten Moustache Monsters, which is on of the new stamps from the recent release.  This is by far one of my favorite new stamps.  ADORABLE!!!  Well, I hope you like my postcard today. Hop on over to  Stampotique and see what the rest of the amazing DT created for this weeks Challenge.

Going Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge: Anything goes


Happy Tuesday! I hope you enjoyed your weekend Holiday if you celebrated this past weekend.  It was so nice to get to spend Easter with my family, and the kids completely enjoyed their Easter baskets and egg hunt.  Another Easter we are blessed to have each other.
 This week, we are keeping the challenge simple, this weeks challenge is an anything goes!  I have had a couple of images colored that I have been waiting to use, and this sweet little Lilly Of The Valley stamp is one of them.  I made this card for my husband and my anniversary, which is coming up in May.  It will be our 15 year anniversary!  WOW....It has been an amazing 20 years together, with 15 of them being married. I am truly blessed.

Last weeks Easter TOP 3 are:

Going Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge: Easter

Happy Tuesday!!!! I hope you had a great weekend.  As always, I could have used another day in the weekend.  They just go by so fast.  I have to admit, my weekend was pretty exciting.  My daughter Abbey competed level 6 in NH gymnastics state meet, and she placed 5th place all-around, along with 3 medals in three events. We are so proud of her.  She has worked so hard. Not only did Abbey have a great meet, but so did everyone on her team, and with all their hard work, they placed 1st in the state of NH for level 6.  It was such a great day, and the girls were brought to tears with happiness.
  Ok, ok, enough bragging about my girl. Let me tell you about this weeks Going Grey Challenge.  With Easter only two weeks away, we are challenging you with an Easter challenge this week.  I decided to go with a cutesy bunny for this weeks challenge.  I used Rick St. Dennis digi bunny stamp, and I created this very bright and loud Easter card.  I feel like I am a embellishment and and layout rutt. I feel like all my cards are starting to look the same...blahhhhh....Have you every felt like that????? This to shall pass.....

    Last weeks Spring Cards were AMAZING...which always makes it really hard to choose.  After torturing myself trying to pick this weeks TOP 3, I finally did, and they are:

                                                                         Judith
                                                                          Christine
                                                                     Marie Clare

Going Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge: Spring

Happy Thursday, I apologize for being behind this week. We have just had so many family issues, I haven't had time to get things done, including the card that I had posted today.  My card for today's challenge is an oldie but a goodie. I used this card approx 1 year ago, but I thought it would be perfect for this weeks "Spring" challenge.  Here in New Hampshire, we have had a horrible winter. It has been chronically cold with temps average 20 degrees and below, and we still have snow on the ground...UGH....So, I am thrilled that spring is coming.......and I can't wait to see all you spring
projects!
   The entries for last weeks Pastel challenge were amazing, and again, it was very hard to pick the TOP 3, but a girl has to do what a girl has to do. Last weeks top 3 are:

Wynn

A Little Bit of Sparkle
