Blog Hop Challenge

 Today I have a challenge that I did for the CropStop  blog and this is the last one that will make it into the challenges.  I did this one for Heidi's blog.  I used Basic Grey Sweet Thread papers, made a bow using the paper, a pink button with twine and blingy letters.

The challenge was to add some sparkle or bling to the project and you know that is right up my alley.

Today is Reveal Day For Sassy Lil Sketches

Time flies so fast each month but today is the reveal for Sassy Lil Sketches and you have until July 5th to be entered in the drawing.  I love how Cherie's sketches make me think outside of the box to come up with the cards I do.
Here is the sketch I got to work with: 

and here is the card that I came up using The Girl's Paperie Kitch collection.  I love the light colors and the little flower accent I added, so without further ado here is what I came up with.

Hope you enjoy this post and come play with me at Sassy Lil Sketches.

A Few Challenges for Crop Stop

I heard about this blog hop and thought I would do a few cards for it.  One that is pink and one that has a banner.  So I had a few cards to make and did some thinking and came up with these.

This card uses the paper Stella & Rose by My Minds Eye.  I used the sticker banner from the embellishment pack and made a Thank you card for a friend.  This was done for Katie's challenge.

This card I used Basic Grey's Sweet Threads paper line.  I also used a Martha Stewart punch with a little doily that was also Martha Stewart.  I love brightening my friends faces with the cards I make.  This challenge was done for Vicki's challenge.

Thanks for the challenge from the blog.

A Layout that covers 2 challenges

I started out doing this challenge for Nikki Sivils blog and then Crop Stop has a blog hop challenge so it ended up being a double dipper and that does not always happen for me, since I don't do a lot of challenges.
Nikki asked for us to do a layout with animals and Crop Stop wanted a layout with your favorite animal so here it is:

Now the Layout is using Nikki's paperline called Something for Everyone and then I used Doggie bones that are die cut from light cardstock and sprayed with Tattered Angels in Creme de Coco and Wheatfields.  I also used some twine to accent and hang the bones.
I had fun with this since my son is a chef I had to get the Chef hat from Petco and a scarf, the apron did not fit.  So now I have many chef's in the house.

Here is a close up of the bone I sprayed and cut.

Can't believe it is Reveal Day at Sassy Lil' Sketches

Well, today is the 14th of June and I can't believe it is reveal day for Sassy Lil Sketches and I almost forgot.  As you can tell it has been crazy since I am still in school till the 30th of this month -- all I can say is this is the longest school year ever. 
Anyway enough of my personal life and onto my sketch and reveal -- thanks for understanding my tardiness and I won't let it happen again.

Here is the sketch I had a chance to work with and Katie did a fantastic job with it so you can really make it your own.

Here is my card using bright paper from Pebbles paper using the Happy Go Lucky Line.

I hope you enjoy the bright colors and come over to play.  You have until July 5th to get it in for a drawing.
