I'm back with a second post to share the card 
I made for my sweet daughter for Valentine's Day.

Papers and larger red enamel hearts by Doodlebug Design.

Valentines' Day 2018 - My Feelings for You are STRONG

Hello sweet friends!
Did you have a good Valentine's Day?
We kept it low key this year.  I had planned
to make a special dinner since I had the day off
but then the hubster woke up with the flu. 
Poor guy!  I followed him around everywhere he 
went with the Lysol spray - LOL.  Very romantic, right?!
 I'm so freaked out abut getting this as I'm starting a 
new job on Tuesday and I need to stay well.  
Hopefully we will have our dinner on Friday.

Today I'd like to share the card I made for my husband.  
Details: heart beat die cut and Stay Strong stamp set 
and coordinating sugar cut are from SugarPea Designs

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
(I used the sketch and the hearts for inspiration)
Body Building/Power Lifting = sport
Thanks so much for stopping in to visit me today!
Hugs and happy crafting! D

Happy 50th Birthday

Hello friends - Happy Monday!
Friday was my middle sister's 50th birthday
and here is the card I made to help her celebrate 
this momentous occasion.  
the inside says ..."Like WHY did I walk into this room?!"
I tried to break it to her gently that yes this does happen
(and far more often than I'd like to admit) - haha!

This fun sentiment is from a set by Stampin' Up! called 

I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #323
for the layout and the main color of pink because
well, because....I love pink lol!

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
(see the three little candles in the top corner?)
Cupcake Inspiration Challenges CIC439 - photo inspiration
(color the pink frosting on the cupcakes)

That's all for today folks.  Thanks so much for popping in
to visit me again.  Crafty hugs to each of you! D

Fairy Princess Emma (Paper Nest Dolls)

Well hello lovelies so happy you are here to visit me! 
  I think that was the fastest January on record in 
all of my 50+ years on this earth!  Whoosh... suddenly
it's "Welcome to February"  LOL! 

I've been taking kind of a crafting and blogging break lately.
I've managed to do a little coloring here and there for
but haven't been able to get a creation finished due to 
lack of time, energy and MOJO (sad face). 

BUT...I recently won a really awesome prize package
from Christine Young of Paper Nest Dolls that included
some awesome Echo Park papers, a Wink of Stella pen
and enamel dots (as well as a couple stamp/die sets)
and this beautiful digital image called 
Fairy Princess Emma.  After coloring her up the other
night for The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge, I found
myself in my craft room today actually finishing a project!! 
So Excited! It sure did feel good to get crafty again!
Thanks so much Christine (big puffy heart)!

Here's my finished card - hope you like it!

My layout design is from Sketch Saturday #500 
They are having very special celebration for the
500th Sketch at Sketch Saturday and 
The Paper Nest Dolls is one of the very 
generous sponsors offering a prize of 3 digital images
(like Princess Emma!!)  

I'm also entering this card in these challenges as well:

Thanks so much for visiting me today!  I'm off to 
watch another episode of Grey's Anatomy with 
my darling daughter (she has gotten me addicted)! 
Hugs and happy crafting! D
