Born to Stand out!


   Happy Hump Day...I am so glad we have reached the half point in this week, as I feel as though it has been the longest week ever.  I'm not sure if it is the time change or the fact that it gets dark at 4:30 in the afternoon.  I sure do hate the winter and the older I get the worse the winter seems to me.  The only good part of the cold weather, is the fact that I am starting to "hibernate" for the winter (lol), and don't want to be outside as much, which allows me more time to create. Todays card was made for this weeks Stampotique Designers Challenge, which is being hosted by Arwen, and here is what she has to say about this weeks challenge:
"Artwork consist of many small details that make a whole.
This week I would like to see spotlights in your work.
Lift a detail of your artwork especially visible out."

I have to admit, this was a hard challenge for me.  I love to color and to leave part of my image white, kinda makes me crazy, but it is a challenge and a good one for me.  I used Smitten Moustache Monsters stamp, and a computer generated quote, which I thought was perfect for the spotlighting challenge.   I hope you will come join use for this weeks challenge and a chance at $30.00 in free product.  Have a great day!

Sending smiles and hugs with a card drive!


  Happy Sunday! Today I wanted to share not only my card for this weeks Stampotique Designers challenge, but also a story about teenager, that has her fair share of pain and "crappy" days, which is why I am dedicating this card to Shelbie Murphy.  Before I tell you how amazing she is, let me tell you a bit about this weeks challenge, which is hosted by Nellie
and here is what Nellie has to say about this weeks challenge. 

"No explanation needed for this week's challenge. I'm asking you to use your favourite colours. Use as many colours as you want to. I think we all have favourite colour combinations, colours that always match, colours that work for us, colours we turn to when we lack a bit of inspiration. Mine are variations of green and blue. What are yours?"
 
  This challenge was super easy for me, as I LOVE color, but I wanted to limit it to my favorite color combination, which is green and pink.  I used  Hazel Heart, and the new release Vine scroll for the background.  The vine scroll is perfect for so many different theme cards.  It could easily go toward a much "darker" theme card as well. Loved this challenge!!!  We would love for you to join us and enter this weeks challenge for a chance to win some free product!
    Now let me tell you about this amazing girl named Shelbie.  She is a 17 year old amazing girl, who has been fighting cancer for the past seven years.  In 2010 she was diagnosed with with stage 4 Ewing Sarcoma, childhood bone cancer. Since then, she has been fighting a horrible battle that no child should have to experience.  Not only has cancer caused her horrible pain, multiple surgries, tranfusions, and misery, but it has has robbed her of experiencing a "typical"  childhood and teenage expierences, and while most of us take day to day life for granted, Shelbie has embraced everyday as it is her last.  Instead of worry about herself, she is always worryig about others and putting their feelings first.  She truly is an amazing girl, who makes the world smile. So, since Shelbie colors the world with her smile, I am dedicating this card to her!  Always thinking and praying for you Shelbie!

     As Shelbie is always coloring the world with her smile, I would like to try to color her world with cards.  If you have a card to spare, I know Shelbie would love a quick note:
 Shelbie Murphy
535 Beacon St
 Lowell Ma 01850

Have a great Sunday night!

All My Friends Are Zombies!

    Happy Wednesday (hump day) and I love Wednesdays, because they mean Stampotique Originals Designers challenge.  It is my week to host this weeks challenge, and my challenge is ghouls and goblins.  I love Halloween and and spooky things, so any chance I get to get creatively spooky, I will.  My page was inspired by a page I saw on pinterest, and I also wanted to use Zombies, as The Walking Dead is one of my favorite shows, so I combined Halloween and zombies. It has been a while since I made a journal page and boy I forgot how much I love making journal pages.  I hope you will join us for this weeks challenge. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Going Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge: Halloween prize challenge

Happy Tuesday! I hope you have a fantastic weekend!  It is starting to get chilly here in New Hampshire. I woke up this morning to a whopping 40 degrees....Burrr...the trees have gone from beautiful shades or red, orange, yellow to bare, and stalk looking, which only means one thing......WINTER is coming...UGH!!! I am not a winter kind of girl, and while I do enjoy the very first snowfall of the year, that is wear it ends.  I hate the cold, and I am already so over six plus feet of snow on the ground at all times. For now, I am going to continue taking in what is left of the trees....
      This week we have a super fun challenge for you....This week we want to see your Halloween projects.  I made Frankenstein card which was inspired by this card I saw on pinterest.   I can't wait to see what you all create for this weeks challenge, which I have decided to give away a Halloween themed goody bag to one of our lucky players.
