Friends are flowers in God's Garden

I guess it was all the rainy days we had in the past few weeks, but my flower mojo got to movin' on this week so I made my card and added my blossoms that I made which are, Dogwood, a few Hydrangea flowers, Lilies, Forsythia, Tulips, and Calla Lilies.
 I added my sentiment, {friend to friend} and added a beautiful sentiment inside embellished with a few Hydrangea Blossoms.  I will say this card was very time consuming, but I did enjoy making each and every flower.  I hope you enjoy my flowers as much as I did making them.

I am entering my creation in the following challenges, Lily Pad Fussy and Fancy Friday,  That Craft Place. Joyful Stamper and Come and Get It challenges and I invite you to check out all the beautiful creations that have been submitted.

Until next time, take care and God Bless.

Happy Birthday Yolie!!

I just wanted to wish one of my online bestie friends, Yolie, a very Happy Birthday.  I did send a card to her and wanted to share it here with my Scrappin' Friends.

She is such a great person and a very caring one.  She and her friend started a blog "Link Up For Pink" and it turned into one fantastic blog for Breast Cancer Awareness.  It was also the first to be reconized by the American Cancer Society.  Check out the site and "Please" post the badge on your blog to remind everyone that beginning October 1 thru the 14th the annual huge blog hop begins and there are sooooooooo many great sponsors that donate great prizes.  You can also post all year long to the new addition to the Link Up For Pink blog under the Pink Gallery.  So make a creation and get it posted.  Let's have some fun for a great cause.

So, until next time, take care and God Bless.

With all that being said, I am

So, I hope you like my creation and it made you grin a little....  if so leave me a comment and I'll do the same.
Until next time, take care and God Bless.

Well, today I had some mojo going and made not one but "two" creations.  I guess some of it came when a friend sent an email and said, "Hey, I need a 2 year old birthday card and a Baptism card for Sunday, can you do that?"  Sure, no problem, I said.  Then that's when you sit there with a blank mind and sit with a blank mind.......then woo hoo, something pops when you start going through your paper stash.  So here is the Happy Birthday 2 Year Old.

And the inside as well.
And then on to the next one.....  wait it's lunch time,  food always helps you to think... lol  So after having lunch, it was break time, so I sat in my recliner for a few.....  feet go up and eyes go closed.   Wonder what makes that work that way?  So after a short nap too, I was ready to take on my next challenge.  So here is the Baptism card.

I hope you enjoyed and if so leave me a comment..... I love to hear what you have to say.
So until next time, take care and God Bless.

Animals in Dresser

Good Morning again my Scrappin' friends. Here is a new release from The Crafty Pad called Animals in Dresser. It is the cutest and can be used for almost any occasion. I had lots of fun creating this one and even though I didn't have it planned, it developed into a scene. I love doing scenes, but this one really was not planned.... lol So without further ado, here is the image released on Monday.

Polly with Poodle is also a Crafty Pad Design that I decided to use to complete my card.
To do a little something different on the dresser to make it look more distressed I used "Rock Candy". Sure does give it a great look although the picture doesn't show it well.

I hope you enjoyed my creation and hope you come back soon. We have another new release coming out on Tuesday the 13th, so check back and see what else is new over at The Crafty Pad.

Oh, and get into the challenge and win some fabby prizes.

Until then, take care and God Bless


I am so excited to post this card as I was a February winner at Link Up For Pink and won a really cute stamp "Hope" from Paper Makeup Stamps. We all need to get involved with LUFP as it is for a great cause, Breast Cancer. If you or anyone you know has or had this they need Love, Encouragement, Hope, Strength, Support and most of all Prayers. Please become involved and send in your creations. Two great ladies, Yolie and Celeste, started this just as a blog and it has become one of the greatest and the only one recognized by the American Cancer Society.
Congrats to these ladies!!

Okay, I will stop gabbing and bragging and show you my creation using my new stamp.

Okay, my friends, click on over to Link Up For Pink and look at all the fabby things and OH, did I forget to tell you they have fantastic prizes you can win too! Woo hoo, how cool is that?

Once again, I hope you enjoyed my creation and it pleases me when you leave a comment. Thanks and take care and God Bless.

Bunny Fun on Log

Hi all, this is Tuesday's new release from The Crafty Pad and is a great image that can be used for Easter or whatever comes to mind when you see it. Of course, when I looked at it and looked at the bunnies, ummmmm.... Easter did not hit me. lol But I thought the sentiment "Life has it's Ups and Downs", was perfect for this creation.

Once again, I hope you enjoyed my creations and stop by often to check them out. If they put a smile on your face, please leave a comment and put one on mine. Thanks and until next time, take care and God Bless.

Bouquet Birgitta, a cutie

I decided to use my Swiss Pixies stamp from C.C. Designs and her name is Bouquet Birgitta and is a real cutie.  She is wishing everyone that is under the weather or has an illness to Get Well Soon.  The weather here in Alabama has quite a few  people with the yuckies, so I hope she helps bring a smile to their faces.

I have made a 6" round card with an easel back so she can just sit on a table or shelf and make them feel happy when they look at all the beautiful flowers that have bloomed and she has a bouquet with fresh picked flowers ready to give to someone.  She is sitting on the bench just waiting for that person to come by.  

Until next time, take care and God Bless.
