Back in the day...

When I was in the 8th grade I used to go roller skating on Saturday afternoons. I'd spend hours skating along to the music with my friend Judy, eating junk food and having a good time.
Seeing this image - Roller Mae - from Some Odd Girl really brought back some fond memories. I never had stars on my skates but would have if I had the option back then. Thanks for looking and I hope you bring in the New Year with creativity and inspiration.
I'm still working on getting my Mojo back so I've been checking out some of the challenge blogs and decided to make a card that incorporated several of the monthly themes going on so here's the list of challenges that this card qualifies for:
Some Odd Girl - Tag! You're It! - must use a tag on your project 
Sweet Stamping Challenge - Sports and Fitness - must have something stamped
Simon Wednesday - Something new - like a new digi

So Berry Cute Sophie

 Today I'm sharing a card that really came together in minutes. I like when that happens. This digital image is an oldie but goodie.  This was one of my Design Team images from The Town Scrapper and is a Victoria Case Design. Isn't she adorable?

Create a Background Challenge

Merry Christmas!!!

I know its been ages since I've posted and I'm slowly working my way back. I thought the best way to get a jump start was with a challenge.

I needed some inspiration so I decided to check out what Some Odd Girl has been up to.  It turns out that they are now selling clear stamps as well as digital stamps. I'm still a digi girl at heart but love that they have both options.
This month's challenge is called "Create a Background." I wanted my image to be the showcase so I stamped a black and white background. It felt good to get a little ink on my fingers. Here's what I came up with.


Thanks ladies for helping me get back in the groove. I plan on joining in on more challenges in the future.

Thank you_St Patricks Day Style

Here's a Thank You card I made using one of the Shamrocks from the Lucky Me set that I used earlier this week. It just goes to show you how versatile this Cutting Cafe set really is.

I paired it up with an image from The Stamping Boutique that I think is adorable. It comes in a girl version too. It's really a quick and simple card but sometimes that is all you need.

Think Green!!

I thought I'd share a card I made for St. Patricks Day. It's a whole lot of green and I love it. I used several different prinable images from The Cutting Cafe which I've shared below.

First I printed the Lucky Background on a piece of white card stock. Then I printed the large shamrock from the 4 Leaf Clover Shaped Card printable set using the background paper I just created. I cut out the shamrock and popped it up with dimensionals.

The large sentiment and the black and white clover embellishment is from the Lucky Me printable set. All great sets to have of course.

Be sure to head on over to The Cutting Cafe to see what wonderful things Regina has to offer. There are some new must have sets.

Hello everyone!! I hope you had a great weekend. This week's Crazy Challenge theme is NOT to use designer paper.

I used the image called Happiness Word Plaque from this week's sponsor TLC Creations. You can't really see it in the picture but I ended up making my own designer paper using stamps and ink. I also stamped a green leafy stem and flower to add more dimension.

I like working with this sponsors image so much that I will be posting two additional cards with it for my Digital Tuesday Challenge project tomorrow.

I hope you will join us for this week's Crazy Challenge. Also be sure to check out TLC Creations for a great selection of digi's and lots of freebies too.
