Weekly Challenge

Sunscreen!!!!!!

Now that it's warmer (although a cold front is moving in later this week and this cheapskate will be turning OFF the air! Lol!) and we are outside almost all the time, it's time to coat ourselves in titanium dioxide!

No matter what your skin tone, you NEED sunscreen.  If you are fair with blonde or red hair, light eyes and freckles (gee, it's like looking in a mirror!) be extra vigilant. 

Coat yourselves up my friends...you need it even in the winter but especially so in the summer!!!  Don't forget your ears, scalp, and the back of your legs and arms. 

Ok, soapbox put away!  Have a great week!!!

Card for Papertake Weekly

This is one of the little cuties I won in Lisette's candy!  Thanks again Lisette!!!

I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly and my favorite Martha Stewart punch! 

And I have some exciting news...I finally purchased a die cutting machine!  Go me, go me!  Lol!  It should be here in two weeks...I've already purchased dies for it.  Hello new addiction! What I need from you is suggestions for dies I really really "need."  This could be dangerous!

Have a wonderful week.  It's going to cool off and the girls and I plan to visit the ZOO tomorrow!

Baby Card

I have had this adorable moon forever but am just now inking it up (shame shame!)...my sister-in-law is expecting (only a few more weeks to go!  Hang in there Sarah!) and we don't know if it's a boy or girl...I was aiming for a gender-neutral card but this little angel always looks like a girl to me!  Maybe I'm biased by my two pretty princesses!




Pretty simple!


Ok, so we are always our own worst critics but I really didn't like this card at all!  So I took it apart and redid it, lol!
Here is the improved card!





This is on the back!  Lol!



For the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy (baby)
Sweet Stampin' Challenge (moon and stars)
Totally Tilda (baby)
Totally Gorjuss (something new...a baby!  Lol!)

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend!

Inventory Challenge Time!

It's time for another I.C. and this week it is Sentiment Only!  For the life of me, I just could NOT get a really good picture of my card...I don't know if it was because of the shimmer in the cardstock or what, but I promise this card is actually a lot prettier in person!  :D
