I Think You're Hot Suff

If you are looking for the Calling All Sistahs blog hop....click HERE

I am working at knocking out my cards for Valentine's Day.  This one is for my hubby. Don't you just love that dancing pig? He is from one of my favorite stamp sets from My Favorite Things....Hog Heaven.  I also used their current sketch for this card (I just flipped the sketch on it's side) and am entering it in their sketch challenge.

Gotta run.....thanks for stopping by.


Calling All Sistahs January Blog Hop

It is my favorite time again....the 17th of the month means it is time for the Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop.  This is a monthly blog hop to remind all our sistahs to do your monthly breast self exam and schedule those mammograms. Believe me, there is nothing more important than taking the time to check yourself and get an annual mammogram. A routine mammogram last summer saved my life.  You can read my story HERE.

This month we have something very special  -- Michele of CAS-ual Fridays has partnered up with Pretty Pink Posh to design an exclusive blend of the prettiest sequins that I personally have ever worked with. The special blend is called Sistahood Sparkle and is a beautiful combination of light pink, silver and dark pink.  They are absolutely lovely...don't ya think?

I was lucky enough to receive a packet of these little pretties and showcased them on my card this month.

I just love the combination of silver and pink so I even heat embossed my sentiment in silver. These sequins are available now in the CAS-ual Fridays Stamp shop and they are part of the Calling All Sistahs collection. Michele generously donates 50% of the profits from the sales of the sequins, just as she does with the other items in the Calling All Sistahs collection to NBCF.org  Quantities are limited and once they are gone, they are GONE.

So now it is time to hop. The next fabulous blog in the hop is the lovely and talented Lisa Lahiff.
Be sure to hop along with all the blogs as there will be 2 - $15 gift certificates awarded randomly for commenting on the blogs.  And there is loads of inspiration and feel good stories along the way. The deadline for commenting is midnight on Thursday January 19th.

I am also entering this card in the Mod Squad Sequins, Rhinestones and Glitter Challenge.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. It is an honor and privledge to take part in these monthly blog hops/reminders.

Sending Wags

My granddaughter LOVES dogs and puppies so I made this card for her with a brand new stamp set from My Favorite Things that I picked up at my LSS. I know Abby will like it and it was loads of fun to make. I used the current MFT sketch:

Happy Anniversary

My son and daughter-in-law are celebrating their 6th wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks and I wanted to make a nice card to send them along with a gift card for a nice dinner out. I used this awesome sketch from Mojo Mondays:

Winter has struck here in Florida and I cannot seem to get warm so I am going to cut this post short and go grab a blanket and curl up on the recliner and watch hockey.  Thanks for stopping by.

My sweet little Izzy is the youngest of my grandkids and she went to kindergarten this year (sniff). I just loved her school picture and I wanted to use some of her favorite color (purple) to scrap it. I used this awesome sketch from Creative Scrappers:

Thanks for stopping by my blog and happy new year!

Crazy Dogs Christmas Card

Late in the evening of Christmas Eve while watching "It's a Wonderful Life" with my dad, I suddenly realized that although I had made over 50 Christmas cards (beginning in July) I did not make one for my hubby. I had already put my Christmas supplies away and it was approaching midnight so I just resigned myself that Dave was not going to get a Christmas card this year.  But I woke up on Christmas morning at 5:30am and while everyone else was sleeping I made this card for him using scraps from my scrap basket and inking up a stamp from my Crazy Dogs stamp set for the first time.

I used this awesome sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:

He loved it....being tired last night was worth it.

Thanks for checking this card and my blog out. I hope your Christmas was awesome.


Oh Yeah We Love Winter Fun

My son and youngest grandson love being outside in the winter weather...snowboarding, ice skating, sledding or just building a snowman or a good ol' fashioned snowball fight....they love it. I loved this picture Adam recently posted complete with red noses and rosy cheeks.

I used this awesome sketch from Clique Kits and am entering it in their December Challenge.

The prize is an Bella Blvd gift package .  Bella Blvd is my absolute favorite company and has been for years.  Because of all my recent medical bills, I have not bought any new scrappy goodies in what seems like forever.  I would be over the moon to win this prize.

Well, my long weekend is over and it is back to work tomorrow but this is another short week so it is not so bad.  Thanks for stopping in.
