You Color My World and Clear It Out Challenge #72

Join us this week at  CLEAR IT OUT CHALLENGE BLOG to start your Spring cleaning!

I worked with this adorable digital image by Lacy Sunshine, Rory ~ Time To Paint The World
Let me tell you, the wheels were turning with this.  I have loads of hoarded items but wanted something  different. Rory demands different, ya know? I dug into a draw filled with "I might need that one day" items. I found the paint brush and I remembered the pink polka dot straws.  LIGHT BULB!  So, I snapped the paint brush handle down in size and cut the straw. Applied some glue inside straw and slid paint brush in. Viola!  Perfectly Pink Paint Brush using 2 hoarded items.  I used my Silhouette to cut the paint splash and cans.  Paint Splat Splash Frame
Paint Set Paint Splatter

Ribbon,Lace and Pearls with Dream Valley Challenge #103

It's all about Ribbon/Lace and Pearls this week  at  DREAM VALLEY CHALLENGE BLOG!

I have to tell you I'm not a Lace and Pearl girl! At least, I didn't think so. However, once I started adding layers to this card I couldn't stop. This adorable  digital image is by All Dressed Up, Abi Ballerina! She really made  it so easy to dress up the card. I had so much fun with this. I'm looking forward  to my next "girlie" card. 

Be sure to checkout all the adorable images at

Think Spring with Eureka! Stamps Challenge #134


This week I decided to do a little extra with my card. I made a bookmark to go with my card. Spring is the  perfect time to soak up sun while reading a great book! 
 I used two amazing digital images from:
Digital Image 14709 ~ Flowers Border Digital Image 14504 ~ Coming Up Daisies Sentiment

This was so easy to do. I see more of these in the future. I love this image with the daises layered on the yellow and green papers.  I hope you join us this week at EUREKA! STAMPS CHALLENGE BLOG CHALLENGE #134  THINK SPRING

Anything Goes with Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #12

Can you believe it's the last Wednesday of March? This year is moving  right along, before we know it we will be making Halloween projects again. Okay, before I have us ringing in the New Year let's talk about this weeks  challenge over at  CRAFTY GALS CORNER CHALLENGE BLOG. It's one we all love,  ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE #12! 
For this challenge I worked with this adorable BB Kakes digital image, FLORA FAE! You can find her at the  Stitchy Bear Digital Stamp Outlet.
I don't make shaker cards too often but I really like them.  So I figured, why not? So I colored the image  using COPICS, use Spellbinders Classical Circles to create the  shaker, added sequins, added Pink Paislee Indigo Bleu Collection ~ Burlap Paper (yellow paper) and Doodlebug Kraft in Color 6x6 paper (blue paper), stamped  sentiment, and added enamels dots from Michael's dollar bins.

Think Spring with Eureka! Stamps Challenge #133

Over at Eureka! Stamps Challenge Blog the challenge is THINK SPRING! I keep thinking we are going to have  Spring weather here in North Carolina but then we end up in the 40's and 50's again.  And no, that's not Spring temps here.  For this challenge I created a  Think Spring card using Eureka! Stamps Digital Image Swinging ~ 14002.  I love this image. She is so cute and happy!  I've been adding more flowers, which is so not me.  I guess they are so pretty for spring I just can't help myself.
The background paper is Authentique Delightful Collection  ~ Elegant. Yep, it's an oldie but a goodie. 

We would love to see your take on  "Think Spring" challenge! Hop over to and join us!  I look forward to seeing all of your  creations!
