Ducky love

So this is the last card that I'm going to post for now... been a busy day... and will be going back to bed soon to nurse my cold!  I play along with Outlaws freebie challenge!  Just love getting digis to play with that force me to get out of my zone sometimes.  Because we never know what great digis will be sent.

For this card as soon as I saw Ducky Love I just knew there was a wonderful sentiment that I could use from A piece of heart, if you haven't been to that blog there's some really awesome sentiment freebies!!!  How awesome right?!?

Game on!

Ok so it's Easter and I'm sick!!!!! bahhhhhh sucks!  On another note I reached my 300 Follower!!!! wooohooo!!!  So I'm going to be preparing the giveaway soon.

It's my brother's birthday this week.  And last week I came across a wonderful set from Paulette at Create with TLC that was just fabulous for his card.  My brother is in the video game industry.

OSAAT - Challenge # 157

Hello!  So it's time for a new challenge over at OSAAT.  This time it's about spring!  How perfect for this time of year right?!?

Lacy Sunshine - Challenge # 5

Happy Easter everyone!!!  It's time for another challenge over at Lacy Sunshine challenge.  This time it's one for which you absolutely have NO excuse not to play with us!!!  It's ANYTHING GOES!!!!  Yup told you it's one you would absolutely loooooove!!!!

For my card I used the awesome Eleanor & Pickles - Painting butterflies.

Sympathy card

This next card is not as much fun!!!  It's one that will be given to my stepmom.  She lost her mom on Friday.  This amazing lady was almost a grandmother to me and a great grandmother to my kids because we have known her for 14 years.  She lived with my dad and my stepmom so we used to see her all the time.

Mme Yvette Julien was 95 years old.  I wanted to make a card that would be special for my stepmom.  And will go and give it to her in person when I go to the service this week.

I wanted to make a vintage card for this sad occasion and I went with my go to place for this type of image which is Create with TLC.  I used the wonderful digi Vintage butterfly free.  I thought it was the perfect image as my step grandma is now free and has joined the Lord.  She no longer suffers.

Flower Love Delice - DT call

Ok I'm taking the plunge and trying out for the team over at Flower love delice-blog.  They have opened it up for the international people like me ;)    I was introduced to this through the so talented Valou.

They also have a FB fan page if you want to go and check it out here.

So now please wish me luck!!!  I would really looooove to be able to represent this awesome store.


Camouflage chick

Told you I would be back.  This time I'm back with a card I made for my eldest son Andrew.  So if you have read my previous post, you will have seen that I fell in love with a digi from Fresh Brewed Design from the showcase that Lisa Decosse had done.  But I also totally loooooove the little Camouflage chick that she had as a giveaway!!!  I knew that it would be perfect for Andrew.  And so when I went shopping I didn't  purchase it because I was soooo hoping that I would win (but I purchased plenty of other digis lol).  And I DID win!!!!  WOOOHOOO.  So here I am to showcase the card I did with him.

Peekaboo chick

Good evening everyone.  I can't sleep... I'm sick :(  I got a cold and now I'm all stuffed up!!!!  So I figured this is the time to show you a few cards that I made today.  The 1st one is for my daughter... it's a last minute Easter card.  I ended up mailing almost all my cards... so I needed 2 more one for my daughter Megan and one for my oldest son Andrew.

This one is the one for Megan.  I used the wonderful digi Peekaboo chick fro Fresh Brewed Designs.  I fell in love with this little chick when I saw the special post that Lisa Decosse had done... and yes I ended up spending $$$... but it's ok 'cause it's really cuuuuute!
