Frogs and Snails

 Hello... was seriously been too long since I have posted and I truly think that I say that each time I post something.. lol

Any way I have made a quick card for a challenge "Lucky Charm" with YNS - seriously love them and excited to play with the new stamps coming my way.  The challenge is to show what you find lucky and of course having a baby is extremely lucky!  I have started to play around with water colours - still playing as you can tell.  lol

thanks so much for stopping by!!

My new hobby

Ohhh where has the time gone!! Well I have a beautiful granddaughter now and I’ve picked up some new hobbies... rock painting!!!  Love it!   After painting the rock we hide them in the community.  I have only hidden a couple but no one has posted that they found them yet.  I can only hope that someone found them ... I’m loving it!!!
This one I used stamps to start it because I wanted to see if it would work.  Not too bad but not as good as I’d like but I’ll keep practising... this one is inspired by your next stamps!

This one was inspired by the break in the rock and today’s is my favourite!!  I hid hi
 By the movie theater...  lol

Another one inspired by the shape and the crack in the rock. 

And this was my first just playing around 

My daughter had joined me and she made this one ... isn’t he just adorable!!
Anyway thanks for listening I will be posting more soon!!!

I only have eyes for you

Hey everyone...
I was able to get into my craft room today and make some Valentine's cards... YEAH!!  
My granddaughter is colic so it has been tough to make it in.  Plus my daughter has taken over the craft room with her things!  
Anyway as always I'm inspired by all the blogs and challenges out there.  See below for the list of challenges.  

The sketch I used or started with is listed below but somehow I always go with something a bit different... but I did use it as a jumping off point.  the little birds just didn't seem to go where the sketch wanted it to...

This card I used my lawn fawn stamp set "science of love" and some old CTMH papers.  This stamp set is adorable!!!  Not sure why the pictures aren't turning out nice and clear... hmmm... need to look into this.  Here is the card...  

and of course, the challenges that inspired me...

Hot coco Christmas

Hot Coco Christmas
hello everyone,  welcome to the new year...
I am getting a head start on the coming years Christmas cards.  I used my Cricut to create the cup and my cuttlebug to emboss 

here are the challenges that inspired me:
cute and crafty - Christmas
winterwonderland - christmas
Simon says - ATG

My baby does crafts!!

The other day my baby girl came home and said
"I want to do crafts!"
I just about fell off my chair she hasn't wanted to do anything in my craft room except go in once in a while just to see me...
Pinterest gave her the inspiration to create this...
She made it for her room plus two other ones with chevrons.. boy she became so frustrated with making chevrons
I loved having her with me...  I love her so much! this just warms my heart
And some challenges I would love to enter her into:
613 avenue create - ATG with washi tape?  well maybe the regular tape will count.. lol

Make a splash!

Happy New Year!!

For some reason, I have forgotten how to take photos of cards!  arghhh... ohh well a work in progress.

some orange peel stickles added for some bling
and because I am inspired by other scrappers... here are the challenges that inspired me:
Your next stamp - anything goes.
