New Challenge - New Look

First, let's talk about the obvious....I have a new look. I decided to update my blog just for a change. Of course I had to include my granddaughter in the header....couldn't help myself. I just love her so much! Anyway...on to the challenge. This week's challenge is to create a fall-ish card. NO Halloween just yet. Our sponsor this week is Digi Doodles......Have you checked their stuff out lately? So, so, so awesome! Why don't you play along and win some digis? They're cute...they're fun and they're from Digi Doodles, what else do you need? See you over at For Fun Challenges....Helen has all the deets for you to play along! My card this week is using one of their images from the RagaMutts series called "Bootsie". Isn't he just the most adorable little dog you've ever seen? I decided to make a giant fire hydrant for him to hang out around....a dog's dream right? I threw on some autumn leaves from bazill basics and there you have it.....a fun fall card. Hope you like it and thanks so much for stopping by!

For Fun Challenge Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! This week's challenge is a fun one....Vintage! I just love anything vintage. The card I made for this challenge was basically a simple one. I had a print of a gorgeous gal from the 50's showing off a yummy cake that she made. Not sure what I will use this card for so I'm leaving the area empty where I normally would put a sentiment blank. I think this card may be nice for a "feel better" type card. Very simple...not much explaining to do. I used some DP for the background that I had in my stash, added a border and some tiny pearls along with some stickles on the cake. There you have it! Please stop by the For Fun Challenges website and check out the other designers' creations....you'll love them. Hope you like it and thanks so much for stopping by!

It's "For Fun" Challenge Time!

This week's challenge is to create a glitzy card. Well, I have to tell you...that's one of my most favorite kind of cards. I love all that sparkle. Sometimes I think I love it too much..........naaaaah! No such thing! Ok, back to my card. I used some awesome DP that has the coolest sparkly print on it. I wish I could remember where I got it but it's one of those scraps that I've had for a while. The cute little chair is from Squigglefly. The sentiment is computer generated and I used a Spellbinders Shapeabilities called Fancy Tags. This is a fun little card to give to a friend....don'tcha think? Don't forget to hop on over to For Fun to see what the other girls have created...I know you're going to be impressed! Hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by!

This week's For Fun Challenge....

....is sponsored by Sassy Studios Designs. Hop on over to the For Fun Challenge blog for all the details because there are prizes to be had! Don't you just love this image and don't you just wish you were doing that right now? I do! The challenge this week is to use black and white with one other color only. That was tough for me! I ended up using this really pretty blue as my accent color. The paper is shimmer paper from Archivers. I threw on some pearls and ribbon for some "splash" and there you have it...my card for this week's challenge! Hope you like it and thanks so much for stopping by!

Reason for my absence

Well, as you may have noticed...my blog has been still for a while. Good reason for that....my new granddaughter has arrived! She is just beautiful and I can't get enough of her. Her name is Taylee and she is doing well. Of course I had to show you a picture of her! Thanks for stopping by and I should be able to get back to my blog now........except for those times when I'm playing with Taylee :-)
