I am Guest Hosting this week’s I Spy Challenge!!!

31 Dec

I have been looking forward to this!  I am giving our lovely hostess, DellsDani a hand this week with the I Spy Challenge!  I really hope you will play along with us and If you do, I would love to share this new digi with you!!  Here’s a little peek…

Okay… So here’s the clues for the challenge…

What I spy is not hard to see

It Starts with an F and ends with a P

A lasting one is something to treasure

It costs nothing at all but its value’s beyond measure

SplitCoast Stampers has many on view

If you join in on my challenge, you might make one too!

 Here is the link to the challenge thread on SplitCoast:  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/splitcoast-challenges-f40/weekly-i-spy-challenge-t535907.html  pop over and join us!!

If you are a new spy and this is your first mission (challenge) please go to post #1. This will explain how things work at Spy Head Quarters

Ok spies…your mission this week is to make a card inspired by the description above. Remember; we never abort a mission. If you are unable to figure out what it is that I spied….that’s okay…because it’s what the description above inspires you to make that counts. So grab your spy kit (stamping supplies) and get to work. And spies…let’s not leave any spy hanging in the field….if they post a card…let’s leave them some love. Good luck Spies!!!

Spies, please use the keyword: DDISPY20 when uploading 

Here’s a little more Digi goodness that will be up for grabs if you play along…

Hope you get a chance to play along!

Thinking of you… Queen Boo!!!

30 Dec

I love the Queen for the Day challenge on SplitCoast….  Our new queen is Jen!!! Her SCS name is Boo and wow is her gallery fantastic!  Here is Jen’s card that I chose to CASE…  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2028392?&cat=500&ppuser=178156

Now here’s what I came up with….

I’ve really been trying my hand at the Clean and Simple cards.  This one turned out pretty well I think 🙂  Here’s a look at the whole card…

The stamp set I used is by Stampendous – Orchid Greetings and I heat embossed the flower image using Recollections Lilac embossing powder.  Too Easy!

Have a great day!

Bead It…

30 Dec

Morning Blog Friends!  I’m still rolling with these challenges and having a great time!!  This time I am playing along with the Ways to Use It challenge!  To quote ravengirl, who is our hostess…. Bead It, Just Bead It!  She’s asking us to use beads on our project.  Check this out…

I used beads from my stash to make this cute little hat pin 🙂  I wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to Lauren who helped me one evening while we were skyping.  I was having difficulty with my Stampin’ Up ink pads, I really couldn’t get a good impression with my ink when I used my clear stamps.  Lauren taught me to use my versamark first then my ink pad… as you can see… it worked great!  Thanks Lauren!  Pop on over to Lauren’s blog and pay her a visit… The woman is so talented!  http://laurensglitzybits.blogspot.com/

Here’s a look at the whole card….

The flower stamp I used is by Inkadinkado – Meadow and I added some stickles to the tips to give it some shimmer.  The stamp is by Hampton Art and I found it in the $1.50 bin at Michaels.  I made this flower using two different sizes of daisy punches.

Hope you have a great day!!

Hello Friend….

30 Dec

This is another card I made for DellsDani’s weekly Alphabet Challenge!  This time I am casing our Hostess Dani!  I found this lovely card in Dani’s gallery and I just HAD to case it….. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1988674?&cat=500&ppuser=58903

Beautiful!!!

Here’s what I came up with….

Of course I didn’t make this flower, it’s a prima flower… I love Prima flowers, they are so beautiful!  Here’s a look at the whole card…

Dani is one of the crazy crew that I hang out with on SplitCoast… She is always so sweet!  I am so pleased to have her as a friend!

Have a great day!

Featured Stamper Challenge….

29 Dec

Hi again!  I was delighted to find out that Chupa is this weeks Featured Stamper!  Wow she has a knock out, drop dead Gorgeous Gallery! I chose this card of Chupa’s to CASE….  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2024068?&cat=500&ppuser=241983

Here’s what I came up with….

I have been working on trying to do some clean and simple cards.  I really struggle with this style but I am determined to get it right!  Here’s a look at the whole card….

I did some paper piercing in the upper right hand corner and used my punch for the butterflies.  The background stam I used is by Hero Arts.

Thanks for the great inspiration Chupa!

Have a great evening!

Alphabet Challenge…..

29 Dec

Well our Lovely Dani, the hostess of the weekly Alphabet Challenge is ending this round of challenges with a twist!  For this last challenge, she is asking that we either CASE one of my cards!  or CASE the last person you received a Private Message from, but it excludes her! and Dani was the last person who messaged me! LOL!!

In truth, I’m not much of a rule follower so I have decided to CASE EVERYONE who enters a card to the challenge!  Fun Huh?????

First Up is FMCrafter!  The ladies that play along with Dani’s challenges are quite a bunch of characters!   We have all become such good friends!  I never miss a day of going on line to see what the Motley Crew is up to, and it’s usually a ton of mischief!!!!!  (recently it’s been at my expense too!) but we won’t talk about that…. I am scarred and traumatized enough as it is!

I made this card for the lovely Lynn, FMCrafter…  who I am so happy to be able to call Friend. 🙂

Here is the link to Lynn’s Card…  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1933280?&cat=500&ppuser=282268

 The stamp that I used is by KaiserCraft – Friendship Sentiments.  Here’s a look at the whole card…

Thanks for the inspiration Lynn!!!

Enjoy your evening!

Queen for the Day Challenge….

29 Dec

Hi Everyone!  Today I am playing along with SplitCoast’s Queen for the Day Challenge.  This week our Queen is Barbara and she has such a lovely gallery, it was difficult for me to settle on one card to case!  Here’s the one I finally chose…  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1752659?&cat=500&ppuser=196262  Lovely isn’t it???  Wow would I love to get my hands on the background stamp, It’s fantastic!!  Here what I came up with….

I just had to show off my hand made flower first LOL!!  I am so jealous of my Aussie Friend, Lauren’s flowers.  I keep making lame attempts at making flowers but Lauren is truly the queen of flowers!  Here’s a look at the whole card…

The paper I used for this card is from the s.e.i Chocolat paper pad, it is so Beautiful!

Have a great evening!

Color Challenge… Friendship…

28 Dec

I’ve been crafting all day!  It’s so great to be on vacation and have tons of time to play around and do what ever you like!  I thought I should make another post because my friend Sam told me that I haven’t offered this Digi  on my blog yet!  Check this out…

This is another Digi that my husband Tony made for me and it is a favorite of mine.

I am playing along with SplitCoast Stampers weekly Color Challenge.  We were asked to use two shades of blue and white.  Here’s another look…

Nice huh?  I need to start thinking of some new sentiments for Digi’s so I can put Tony back to work LOL!!! If you have any ideas, I would be happy to pass them on to him!  Don’t be shy now!  It’s hard work thinking all this up all on my own! LOL!!!  Here is a look at the whole card…

Bling and Stickles … Does it get any better than that???  Nope!

And because I love to share all the Digi goodness that Tony creates for me…. Here’s the Digi up for grabs!

 Hope you like this Digi as much as I do, and as always, if you decide to use it I would appreciate a link back here to my blog!

Have a great evening!
