Pretty in Pink

I finally got a chance to make a card. I colored this about a week ago but haven't had any time to put together a card. Today was the first day in about a week it's not raining and we actually have some sunshine. While hubby was outside rolling the yard, the girls couldn't wait to get outside and play. So as soon as I put Olivia down for a nap, I ran to my craft desk! Peace and quiet for about an hour!! Well, not really peaceful as I had MY music cranked. Usually the music around the house anymore is Justin Bieber, Big Time Rush or Taylor Swift...ugh!

Anyway, here's my card. I'm entering it into the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and Mo's "Pink and Girly" Challenge

Hubby and I are going to a reverse raffle tonight. Wish us luck...would be nice to win something!

Cards for Twins

Tomorrow we are heading to a twins 1st birthday party so I decided to make the cards myself. I'm no expert by any means and I'm still learning, but I think they came out dang cute. Both images are digi stamps from Mo Manning. I'm even going to be brave enough to enter them into the DP2 Challenge "Something New". I suppose a 1st birthday is new, huh?!

3 cards in two days...I'm on a roll peeps!

Ladybug Tilda

Here's the latest card I've made. Isn't this stamp the cutest? It's from Magnolia Stamps from the Raising The Ceiling Collection - Ladybug Tilda.

Being new to card making, I'm finding that I'm having the hardest time coordinating papers. Is it just me?! Well, I just went online and ordered a buttload of more paper so hopefully I'll have an easier time. I also bought quite a few new digi stamps, so now I just need to find the time to get to play! Along with having a full time job, hubby has full time job and is also working on his master's degree; and throw in twin 6 year olds, a 20 month old; and trying to get our house in shape to put back up on the market to sell..its amazing I find the time for anything else but sleep! I'm sure there are plenty of you who feel my pain! =)

Be back soon! Hugs!

Friday Favorite

This weeks Friday Favorite is the trailer for the movie Bull Durham. Absolutely love this movie and so started my infatuation with Kevin Costner. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend! Enjoy.

On a crafty note, I haven't had much time for crafting this week, but I did manage to crank out one card. I'll post later today.

Friday Favorite

I saw on someone else's blog that every Friday they post a favorite song, video, movie trailer, tv show clip, etc. I thought it was kind of cool so I'm gonna do that too! My first "Friday Favorite" is a video from Bon Jovi. I absolutely love this song and this video. I've had a crush on this guy since I was 17 yrs. old. It's pretty pathetic, but what's a girl to do? He's just the perfect guy, in my opinion of course. I've never met the man, but in 2000 I got tired of waiting around for him, so I went ahead and got married to someone else. That'll show him, right?! For some reason though, I just don't think he loves me as much as I love him... Have a groovy weekend peeps!

Just Bee-cause

When I saw this little bee bear, I had to have it. It's a digi stamp at The Paper Shelter. I have no idea how I stumbled across this store, but they have some super cute stamps. Go check 'em out! So here's my card:

I had to add some Stardust Stickles on his wings because I have Stickle OCD and I can't stop! I'm still trying to get the hang of card making. For me, it's alot harder than it looks! I'm still practicing hard with my copics and I'm finding out that the quality of paper is the key.

"Bee" back soon with another card. A new Magnolia arrived in my mailbox today and I can't wait to see how it turns out. Have a great week! =)
