Hippo Birthday

My great niece is turning 10 next month and I cannot resist a cute pun when making a birthday card so I dug out one of my favorite Lawn Fawn stamp and die sets for this card.  I am entering in the  Lawnscaping Color Scheme Challenge.  The challenge is to use purple, black and one other color....which I chose pink. Reyna loves Michael's (a girl after my heart) so I will also be enclosing a Michael's gift card in this card. I hope she likes it.

Thanks for stopping in on a Monday to check out my blog.  Monday is definitely NOT my favorite day of the week so I am glad it is nearly over.

I'd Like to Espresso My Thanks

I recently was diagnosed with stage one breast cancer and had successful surgery to remove it.  I was blessed with many cards and gifts during my recovery and I need to make quite a few thank you cards.  This is going out to a dear friend in the Chicago area that sent me a gift of LuLaRoe leggings. Have you jumped on the LLR bandwagon? I may be a little late to the party but they are absolutely the softest and most comfortable thing I have ever worn. To show my appreciation, I made Teri this card. I used the awesome sketch at Viva La Verve:

I also used one of the free digitals stamps from Julee Tilman for Verve stamps on this card.

Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful Sunday afternoon.  Fall has arrived in Florida and I am thoroughly enjoying it.


Fall Fun

My oldest grandson Jacob is now 15. This picture was taken last year at the pumpkin patch when he was 14 and just might be the last Halloween type picture of get to scrap of him.  He is more and more reluctant to get his picture taken (as most teenage boys are) So I seized the opportunity and created a page with this awesome picture.  I used this sketch from Grand Diva's Scrappy Friends Challenge:

I also  added a tag below the journaling card so I am entering this layout into Rochelle Spears This or That Challenge to use tickets or tags.

Finally I am also entering this page in Scrapbook Circle's October Challenge -- Autumn Leaves.

Well that is about it for this beautiful Sunday morning. I hope you day is filled with all your favorite things.

Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet

My grandson Cole loves Halloween....maybe because he was born in October or maybe because he loves all things creepy or maybe it is just the candy. But whatever it is you can always see the excitement on his face in his Halloween photos.  Last year the weather was not so great in Indiana for trick-or-treating but Cole did not let it dampen his spirits at all as you can see from this photo.

I used the fun sketch from The Scraproom Blog:

There are still a few days to enter this sketch challenge with me.  See all the details HERE

Thanks for stopping by....come by tomorrow as I have another Halloween page to share.


Izzy's Gift Bag

My youngest granddaughter Miss Izzy, loves the color purple. So I try to incorporate the color in a lot of the goodies I make for her including this Halloween gift bag. I picked these burlap gift bags up super cheap after Halloween last year.  They only had 2 but if they had more I would have bought them all....they were only 50 cents apiece!  I filled this bag with slime, candy, and other goodies that only a 5 year old could love.  I love to spoil my grandkids!

I am entering this project in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Gift Bag/Box Challenge.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

I'm Glad You're Alive

Here is another one of my Halloween projects....this card is for our grandson Cole. Cole has an October birthday and Halloween is one of his favorite holidays. I had a lot of fun coloring this Frankenstein monster from My Favorite Things Frightful Friends stamp set and creating a little scene for him. I used the MFT sketch #303 for this card:

I am entering this card in the card sketch at My Favorite Things. There is still plenty of time if you want to play along.  Thanks for stopping by my blog....have a wonderful weekend.


Happy Haunting...MFT Color challenge

I saw these colors at the Color Challenge at My Favorite Things and they just screamed a Halloween card to me.  And since I still had to make a card for my 15 year grandson I thought I would play along. Here is my entry:

I used a kraft card base and the persimmon colored background paper is from the MFT Sweet Sunshine 6x6 paper pack.  I then colored my vampire in Gumdrop Green and Milk Chocolate (these colors are giving me a sugar  I like the way he turned out. The image and Happy Hauting sentiment are from the MFT Frightful Friends stamp on my new favorites.

Thanks for stopping is finally favorite day of the week. Fall weather is finally arriving in Florida this week and I plan to enjoy it.  What are your plans?
