Tea Time

I have been in total panic mode for the last 36 hours because my internet was out of commission! I can't believe how dependent I have become on this computer & the places it takes me. I had this card made for the freebie challenge at Outlawz but didn't think I would get it posted on time...guess that will teach me to wait till the last minute to enter! When in Arizona I bought the Spellbinder flower die & that is what I used on this card. I really like the way it turned out. I also plan to enter this in the "hiding in my craftroom" challenge which is homemade flowers.

You Rock!

The weather has been rotten here the last couple of days so I have had lots of time to create a few cards. I want to share this one with you today. The image is from "Outlawz" (isn't she adorable) & the sentiment is from the lovely Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs. I have colored her with my prismacolor pencils & baby oil. The DP is from Kaiser craft & CS is Bazzill. The ribbon & bling is from my stash. I plan to enter this in the Outlawz Challenge & Fetch a Sketch challenge. Thanks for stopping by.

Love you a Latte

This weekend was really busy for me. Not only was it Easter but it was also my daughter Keri's birthday & my granddaughter Jessica was in a hockey tournament. Whew! My daughter loves her Tim Horton's coffee so this image from Heather over at Fresh Brewed Designs was the perfect pick for her card!( For those of you from the US...Timmy's is a Canadian coffee franchise) The DP is My Minds Eye--Lost & Found, CS is Bazzill, the flower is Recollections & the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. It doesn't show up very well in the picture but I hauled out my old crimper & cut brown CS for the wrapper on the cup.  I am going to enter this in Heather's Birthday Challenge at FBD.

Home Sweet Home!

After 31/2 long, frustrating days we have arrived home to our beautiful little house on the river! Our drive was hindered by road construction, high winds, an overturned semi that was transporting piggies....some of said piggies escaped creating havoc in Liberal, Kansas. Then there was the crew moving a huge "something" down the highway east of Liberal & holding up traffic for miles (it was NOT a good day to be in Liberal!)  Anyway, now we are home & I am excited to get back to my craftroom & try to create something beautiful....or atleast something pretty! Spring has arrived early here this year. Last year we arrived home to 2 feet of snow & the river still frozen the birds are singing, my tulips are up 3" & the river is flowing's good to be home! No matter how good a vacation is, it is always good to come home!
