Mojo Monday Week 80

This was a fun card for me. I pulled out the heat embossing supplies and got to work. AND I used some Tinkerbell paper I've been holding onto forever and finally used. So let's just say that this card (I made a set of 6) was made from all scraps I had left over...well the paper anyway. I love when I can use up all the little pieces that I wonder if I'll ever use again but hang onto them anyway. ;-) Enjoy!

Supplies I used:
Lovely Lilac Stamp Pad #102874
Transparent/Star Dust embossing powder (Stamp-n Stuff)
Great Friend Stamp set #113792
Think Happy Thoughts Stamp set #115092
Cardstock: miscellaneous scraps

Fun crop night with the girls...

My BFF Heather had a crop night over at her place tonight and it was FUN! Met a new member of our group, she goes by the fabulous name of JULIE! Liked her right away when she cursed. LOL. Anyone who knows me knows I have a sailor mouth...which I'm working on...but not tonight. . Here's a couple of cards I 'scrap lifted' from a couple of great websites and you'll be pleased to know I wrote down where they came from so I could give credit. The first is from iStamp (Nancy Riley) whom I LOVE! Her work is fabulous and I look at it 100 times a day if not more. And as you can see, I copied it almost down to the T. Couple of changes but nothing much.

And this card set I got from Dannie Graves, another very talented designer. Again, copied almost exactly.

I decided to take a couple of ideas from these ladies so that it would be an easy night and I didn't have to lug all my possessions over there. UGH! I forgot some things, but had what I need to do these. Usually when I go to crops I never really know what I want to do so then I take everything, but tonight I planned ahead and it worked out great. I will surely do that more often.

Thanks Nancy and Dannie for posting all your stuff for those non-creative folks like me who need your inspiration!

Color Challenge #47

Classic Black & White...

Another set of cards done for Relay. This was a fun card to make. I love working with black and white. It's just classic and elegant no matter what you do with it. I got my inspiration off of SCS...but as usual I don't write down the info so I couldn't find it again when I went back to get the link. So...when I find it I'll give credit where credits due. The layout is the same, but I changed up several items & moved things around to make it my own. Hope you enjoy!

Few more cards for Relay For Life....

I'm on a roll today (thanks Heather for coming over and inspiring me!). I've made 3 sets of cards to sell at our Relay For Life onsite fundraiser. Below, the blue and yellow card, which I happen to LOVE the colors, has an 'Awareness' ribbon on it. I got the idea from one of my BFF's & my wonderful upline. Check out her blog! Thanks Steph for letting me steal your idea...not that I gave you much choice!

And this card turned out cute...but it took me awhile and wasn't what I had imagined.

I got this idea off SCS. These I made from scraps so it didn't turn out exactly.

I have a sick kiddo...

I would LOVE to do something this week but life is getting in my way. My poor baby girl is sick with an ugly bug. She started getting sick on Sunday while we were down South visiting friends and I can't seem to break the fever. It comes and goes, but it seems to find it's way back to us. Any suggestions? I've been piggy backing Tylenol and Motrin and that stops it until it wears off and then it comes back to rear it's ugly head. She did manage to go to school today. She seemed fined when she got up, but not so sure that was a good idea. Hopefully a good nights rest will find her well tomorrow. to the Dr. Hopefully a card is on it's way.

Cards for Kayleigh

I wished I had a Million dollars to give to this family. I wished I could scoop them up in my arms, bring them here to live with me and make sure they were gonna be ok. But I can't. What I can do is help in a way that I know how to making cards! I've been making card sets to help my Relay For Life team (Family of H.O.P.E.) to raise money for the American Cancer Society. And I can make more to help Kayleigh. So I put a set of cards on the side bar with a 'Buy Now' button. I will take orders. Just tell me which ones you like and I'll make them and get them out to you. Hope to get a bunch of orders!
