I've missed a few challenges this past week.. I've started my workout routine and it's kicking my butt! I don't have to go in to work 'til 4 today so I whipped up a card to share. :)
Color Throwdown #77 is such a FUN combo! When I first saw it, I immediately thought of the Amy Butler designer mat pad I recently purchased from Jo-Ann's! So perfect!
Today's card also follows Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #4. SR is a new challenge blog with a fun team of ladies sharing their talent. This week's challenge is a sketch, so check them out! :)
I hope everyone has a great week!! Yay!
Leave a comment. I so appreciate them! :)

I am back today with a card that follows Taylored Expressions Sketch #98 and JUGs Color Challenge #16. Great balanced layout and fab color combo! I did some heat embossing and that's always FUN! :)
I've restarted my cardio routine this morning and I'm slowly feeling the effects.. My body wants to take a NAP! but I shouldn't because I know it'll ruin me tonight. :(
Anyway, I hope everyone's having a great Monday! :)
Thanks for looking!! :) :)

Are you having a great weekend so far? I know I am! :) I had planned on going to Michael's after work today but then a "little voice" told me to check out Jo-Ann's instead. (I'm not hearing voices. I promise I'm sane. hahaha. Promise.) Boy, am I glad I went! Almost everything was 40 percent off!! Weee!!! So, I have more than a few new toys that I can't wait to use and the best part, I get to share my cards with all of you lovely people! :) Yayy!
Today's card is my take on Embellish Mag's Color Challenge *with STRIPES.* I am beyond excited with this color combo! I love love love love ... did I say, love? ... PURPLE!
I tried something new (to me) with the ribbon. I thought it turned out really pretty. After finishing the card with the handwritten sentiment, I thought the floral focal image could've been placed a tad lower.. But darn those mini pop dots! hahaha. I hope you enjoy this! :)
Also, Embellish Mag's Color Challenge this week is being sponsored by Clear and Simple Stamps. It's a super fun challenge so, check them out! :)

It is a chilly 30deg, yet bright and sunny Tuesday morning! It looks amazing out but, I think I'm staying in! I've got my warm old puffy blanket, my lil doggie Stewie (to keep me extra warm.. I'm amazed how warm this little 13lb rat terrier is!!) and a good read. *sigh* But before I get all comfy and settled in, I've got a card to share with you. :) :)
Today's card is my take on Mojo Monday's Sketch #121 and Ms Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #21. I loved combining these two!
Thanks for looking!! :) :)

I am SO happy to be back cardmaking and blogging again! Even with a crazy work schedule over the holidays and with family visiting, I couldn't resist checking out blogs over the past few weeks. I was *ITCHING!* to join a few challenges, but I felt a short break would be okay and being with family was much needed. :)
For today's post, I have two cards! Wee! I decided to take on Mojo Monday's Contest Sketch and Just Us Girls Sketch Challenge! Yay!!! So FUN, so INSPIRING!
**Before I go on though, I'd like to say THANK YOU, MS KRISTIN over at JUGs!!! Thank you, thank you for recognizing my work for last month's Chalk Challenge. I truly appreciate it. It means a TON! and I just needed to let you know that!**
On to the cards! Yayy!!
Don'cha just LOVE! those balloons?!?! They're so FUN! Gotta love Inkadinkado images! :)

I tried something NEW with this card: coloring with pencils. I colored in a few areas on this supercool! butterfly and softened it a bit with a blender pen. The colors bleeding outside the lines bothered!!! me in the beginning but I think I'm loving it now.. :)
