About Me

I am a work in progress. Always trying to improve my inner-self. How can anyone judge another without first doing inventory on one's self?

PENGUINS!!

Did you know that April 25th is "World Penguin Day?" Well...what are we waiting for? Let's celebrate! Create a card or project that reminds us of a penguin. You can do this by using an image of a penguin or simply by creating a card or project that is made with the colors black and white.  Be creative!SPONSOR: our very own, Paula at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge

SPONSOR: Creations by Penny

Prize: Winner's choice of 8 images

I have ONE penguin stamp to my name!  ONE!  But I REALLY wanted to use it rather than go with a black and white theme.  There is paper piecing involved... can you find it??

I HATE MUSIC GENERATORS ON BLOGS

I had 20-something blogs to review submissions and TWO of them had music generators!  It took me FOREVER to find them and shut them up!!!!! 


HATE THEM.

SPOTS AND DOTS!

Create a card or project using at least two pattern papers that have spots and/or dots! The rest is up to you!
SPONSOR: Meljen's Designs

PRIZE: FOUR digi-images of Winner's Choice



BONE HEAD ALERT:  I read the challenge wrong!!!  I am a complete DORK!   Instead of using patterned papers, I used images to create spots and dots.  I also stamped spots and dots to create a background (anyone that knows my style knows I RARELY use pattern papers.  You know why?  Cuzz if you use them then they will be all gone!  Can't eat your cake and HAVE it too..)


Good news;  I used a digi-image by this week's sponsor and is it (along with ALL of her sweet designs) ever C-U-T-E!   Check her adorable creations at WEBSITE: http://www.etsy.com/shop/meljensdesigns
Unfortunately  I don't have a single copic!  This image would look fabulous if I used copic markers ... *sigh*...   I used my trusty water color pencils and a blender pen.  




NOW GO to Stamptacular Sunday Challenge to view all the fabulous stamped projects my fellow DT members created (and THEY FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS)!

"FIRST challenge!" or "CHALLENGE #1" !

BLESSED EASTER EVERYONE!

Time for my first official DT contribution for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.....yay!
This first challenge is titled:
SUGAR AND SPICE AND EVERYTHING NICE!
Create a card or project that is just for girls! how you do this is totally up to you! The possibilities are endless!


Let me tell you what a true challenge this was for me!  I wanted to create something truly STAMPTACULAR but project after project wound up in the can.  It was terrible!  I had a stampers-block that a pound o' prunes and a hunk of Exlax chocolates couldn't move!  


What did I do?  I went back to my roots!
Broke into storage and found an OLD stamp set from my beginners days (Pocket Fun from Stampin' Up!) and kept it simple.  It isnt as awe inspiring as I had hoped but it's semi cute and it's my first easel card.  
OK, now I will shut up and show the card (don't forget to check out the beautiful creations my fellow DT members created.)
