Creative bug Freebie - April 30th

I'm playing with the wonderful Freebie from Creative bug on the loose.  My friend Naomi is not doing well... and Lisa is taking over the blog to share the wonderful freebie with all of you!  This is pretty appropriate with  the creator of this digi being sick.  So when Lisa asked if I could create something with this wonderful digi of course I said YES!

So here's my card.

Little hummingbird

Hello everyone!  Taking time on my lunch hour to post this card that I made on the weekend to participate over in the Meljen's challenge.

I just realized that I lost a follower :(  how sad... oh well that's life.  Hope you guys are not bored with me...
Anyway enough with the self pity and on to the showing of the card.  I went a bit overboard with the flowers lol.  I had seen my friend Susan who's on the DT team there use this little hummingbird.  So when I won last week I just had to grab him!!! 

Fresh Brewed New release - April 29th

Hello everyone!!!  It's time for a new release over at Fresh brewed designs.

I had fun!!!  I played with as many as I could lol  and so could you because there's a great sale going on!!!  It's a 'free digi with purchase' promotional coupon you can get a free digi of equal or lesser value and the code is * newdigis *!!!  So you can have as much fun as I had!  Plus this new release includes fabulous digis to celebrate dad!!!

I find masculine card so difficult to do but these were really easy.

 For my 1st card I'm using the wonderful digi #1 Dad.

MelonHeadz DT card - For a mother's day/special lady

Hello everyone!  It's time for another challenge over at Melonheadz friends.  This time it's for a Mother's day/special lady.

For my card I decided to play with the wonderful digis from the set Mikella's Deluxe Embellies that can be found here.


Eureka DT card - Monochromatic

Well it's time for another wonderful challenge over at Eureka stamps and this time our challenge is to do something monochromatic.

YIKES!!!!  Don't  know about you but I have trouble doing that... Did a card on my blog yesterday as well... yup these are challenges for us DT as well lol

So for my card I used the wonderful digi Grecian Square.  I thought it was perfect for this challenge and really required very little on my part.

DDC #60 - Celebrate

You are here for my DT card for Digi Darlas!  And this time our challenge for you is celebrate!  How easy is that?!?  There are so many events that can be celebrated!  And you will see from our post a large variety of celebration.

In my case I thought it would be a great time to create a Christmas card... now I didn't realized at the time I made this that I would have another Christmas card the same day lol so ooops... I'm really really not missing the snow.  I just figured this would be a great opportunity to be ahead of the game!

For this card I used the wonderful digi Stick Snowman.  Just love how easy it was to color.

Tammy's scrapin corner - Challenge # 60

Hello everyone!  It's already Monday morning! And this means that it's time for another challenge over at Tammy scrapin corner!

This time our challenge is Lots of layers!  So pretty easy right?!?  We always seem to add lots!

Our fabulous sponsors this week are

For my card I decided to get ahead of the Christmas rush and make a Christmas card.  So I used the wonderful digi X-Mas candle from SK digis.

OSAAT - Challenge # 161

It's time for another challenge over at OSAAT and this time it's For a Mom.

When I got this challenge I was wondering what type of card I would make.  And then I came across a sentiment that made me decide which digi to choose to play with.

So my digi this time is the wonderful Fairy Flutter from Beary Dust.  And this card was made thinking of my Mother-in-law who is not with us this mother's day!  I know that this day will be really hard for the entire family this year.  But I know that she is now an angel watching over us.  So it's a fairy not an angel... but to me they are very similar ;)

Lacy Sunshine - Challenge # 7

Hello everyone!  It's time for a new challenge over at Lacy sunshine challenge.  This time the challenge is to go monochromatic!!!

Well this was quite a challenge.  I had just the perfect sentiment for my wonderful digi... but I sooo wanted to color him up in the Habs colors... you see in Montreal we are big hockey fans with the Canadians of Montreal... and well... it just wouldn't do with this challenge.  So I went with blue.  All blue so that my hubby doesn't think it was for his old Nordics from Quebec... there was a bit of a rivalry you see between Quebec city and Montreal lol.

Freddie's Bar B Q

Well goodevening everyone!  Yup it's really late for me to be doing a post... but my hubby is away at his dad so I'm all alone with the kids and I find it a lot harder to fall asleep.  So figured I might as well post a card that I had made this week.

I also wanted to tell you a little more about what happened to my washer last night... Yesterday my kids were home alone since it was a ped (pedagogical) day in their school.  So before I left I started the laundry and told them to continue throughout the day and that I didn't want any clothes left when I came back.

Well I received a phone call at around 9 o'clock to say that there was an issue with the washer that it wasn't emptying properly... it was still full of water.  So I gave them as much advice as I could being away... but in the end it was to be left until I would come back.  Now my hubby was supposed to be leaving last night... so I e-mailed him right away to let him know that there was an issue and that I would need his help.  Because for those of you that don't  follow me closely I have 4 kids so... with a family of 6 a working washer is no luxury!!!

When I got home I had to empty half of my craft room because it's also the laudry room.  Told you it's a pain in the behind that the washer is there... lol  Then I tried to pull out the washer to access the back but it was so heavy with all the towels in it.  So had to put those in the sink (I'm so glad I have one in that room).  By then I was exhausted... but still nothing was working.  My hubby arrived and we looked at the manual together.  There's nothing written in that #@%@#% manual!!!  So thanks to google we researched the net and finally got that we needed to open it up.  Then we realized that there was some clothes stuck between the drum and the water tank.  It's one of those top loaders without an agitator, so it spins really really quickly... but there's a little space at the top between the tank and the drum... and when it spins, some socks had gone in the holes and this must have been going on for awhile... and since it's my sons' socks... well they are always missing some therefore it went unnoticed!  The washer was literally eating our socks!!!

It's all fine and dandy to know that it's there... but it was quite something else to really take everything apart and put it back together afterwards lol  It's really a good thing that google exists.  But it still took us 3 hours to do... and we were totally exhausted afterwards.

So all this story to say that I didn't post this card yesterday because I was too tired after my adventure!

Now back on track with my card.  I play in the Outlawz freebie challenge they have the cutest digis for us to play with every 2 weeks.  And if you play you get the next 2 ;)  So this time I played with the wonderful Freedie's Bar B Q from Anne's digital Art.

Fresh Brewed Design - Exciting news!!!

For San's Design blog hop go here.
For I double dog dare you blog hop go here.

I have some pretty awesome news for you!!!!  I've been dying the past month to share this with you all... and needed to wait a bit.  So here it is!  I'm now part of a special Saturday DT over at Fresh Brewed Design!!!

About a month ago I received an e-mail from the very talented Heather to know if I would like to be a guest designer for either a Saturday or the new releases.  Well you know me... of course I said YES!  And since the term release was in plural... that's what I chose.  So Heather sent me over the new releases (that I can't share with you yet) for the next 2 months (you will be in luck... one is out this Monday ;) )  I did 6 cards within 2 days.... and of course I was super sad that it was over... so I offered Heather my services should she ever want me to play with her digis again ;)  I had so much fun during Easter with the wonderful Camouflage chick and Peekaboo chick!!!  Well... I was super lucky because Heather had been thinking about doing a special team for every 2 Saturdays!!!  And guess what... I am part of the team WOOOHOOO!!!!  So excited.

Heather created us avatars!!!  WOW my very 1st digi avatar ;)
I think she really embellished me lol and here's my new badge:
I can't  tell you how awesome I felt.  Especially since for this team we get to choose whatever image we feel like using!  So I really feel like a kid in a candy store!!!!

So for my 1st card I chose the wonderful digi Decision for Alice that you can purchase here.   I totally fell in love with this digi!
