My beautiful friend, Carolyn, was recently diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She has given me permission to start a fundraiser for her. Many of you know her through the card making world. She is such a beautiful person, inside and out. She makes us laugh, cry, laugh more. I have never met anyone as positive and happy as she is. She is always doing things for others and now it's our turn to show her how much she means to us. Please stop by and let her know you love her and are praying for her. Thank you so much!
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:

Good Morning all you happy people!
Yesterday was sort of off the wall crazy.
My computer went loopy on me and wouldn't read my memory card,
so I had to wait and keep trying. I finally gave in and used my camera phone :(

Here is a card I created for this challenge using the
Spring Chick with Easter Eggs - Digital Stamp

Good... almost night.
I got on at exactly this time this morning to upload a card
and prepare a post. I ran out the door. Dropped my son off at my moms.
Took my daughter (and her school books) to the dance studio
and I took a cardio / strength class with a group of wonderful older ladies.
They crack me up. It's my second time taking a class with them.
The fist was Zumba. Not my style for sure. I was all over the place.
I have no coordination. :/ My children certainly didn't get their dancing abilities from me.
After class I stopped back by my moms. Brought the kids home.
Worked on school and cleaned house. Cooked lunch.
Took kids for a 1/2 off frappe at Starbucks. Took them to the park.
Then home, changed, and took my daughter to dance.
I brought my son home. Cooked his dinner. Finished his history.
Fed the dog. Washed my sheets and cleaned kitchen again.
My dad came over to get our old recliner. .... and
now it is 7 pm. The day completely got away from me.
So I am here exactly 12 hours later completing this post.
I am here to share a card with you, of course!
I had fun creating this little card. I used a NEW FBD Digi
called Lil Sweetie Cupcake Bunny
I know it looks a little... weird... but I made this
bunny embellishment out of felt. I sewed it all together.
added the fuzzy tail. It was cute until I added it to the card.
Oh well... I tried :D
I colored this with a mix of copic markers and prismacolor markers. The
papers are all from my OLD stack of left overs. I have SO many papers
that I have no idea where they came from!
Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me today!
I hope you have a very blessed and happy week.

OK... so I am on a diet.
I have gained so much weight lately it is ridiculous!
So I joined a Barre class at my daughters dance studio.
It is held twice a week. I will also be participating in one
cardio class (which is tonight) and I am scared :D lol!!!
So... no cupcakes for me... unless I am coloring them... and
sometimes that's just as good.....
who am I kidding. No it's not! lol!!!
I can tell you I am SO EXCITED for my daughters upcoming birthday (near the end of the month)
because that will be my 'cheat day' and I will eat one cupcake or one slice of cake
(but that's all) and I will enjoy every crumb! :D
Are you ready for some FAT FREE cupcakes?
Check out our LIL SWEETIES.
we just released 5 new images today and hope that you love them
as much as we do :)
I created this card using LIL SWEETIE SPRING FLOWERS
I colored this sweetie using prismacolor markers AND copic markers.
All of the papers are from my stash. I know I have had the green dot (handmade)
paper for about 8 years now. I have hoarded it. I have no idea where any of
these came from. Just my hoarded OLD stack of papers. sigh...
The sequins were one of those last minute decisions. I pulled them out of my
drawer (forgetting I took the cap off to make a super hero stand for my son)
and they went everywhere. In my lap. On the floor. So I took that as conformation
to use them on the card. I had to pick them up one by one anyway... why not put some
to use. :) I also added a few little epoxy stickers, a tiny clothes pin and a pretty pink rose.
I used this SPLITCOAST STAMPERS Sketch SC582
as my inspiration (and if you follow SCS you will know the challenge posted today... so
I totally procrastinated and put the card together this morning. Hence the late post.
I colored the image last week... but never found time to put it together. It is what it is.
I still think this card turned out really sweet :)
Here are all of our NEW RELEASED digis:
Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me today.
I hope to see you play along with us at Freshly Brewed Challenges SPRING challenge.

I am so excited to be here sharing some NEW FRESH BREWED DIGIS with you!
Today is New challenge day and NEW digi release day!
You can find all the links and posts at our challenge blog HERE
Make sure you stop by. You also have a chance to be a
guest designer at one of our future releases!!! YAY!
This weeks challenge theme is OH SO GIRLY
and our new digis also fit the theme, so I killed two birds with one stone...
er... or coffee bean so to speak. :D
My first card features the new digi:
This card uses all scraps. I have a huge box and dug through until I had a
variety of things I thought would work well together on this card.
The little 'window' or frame looking piece is from a clearanced
wedding invitation card kit set from Walmart. I have been
meaning to use them for a LONG time, and am glad I stumbled
upon them while choosing my papers. The corrugated cardboard is a muted
slate color. I added the shine to it by using the newly releasedSIMON SAYS STAMP EMBOSSING POWDERin ANTIQUE GOLD from the REASONS TO SMILE release.
This stuff is the bomb!!! I mean... for real though.
Just look at that shine! Beautiful!!!
This lovely lady was colored using a mix of prismacolor markers
and copic markers.
Next up is
Again, I used all scraps for this card.
She is colored using a mix of prismacolor and copic markers.
again... swoon. It is just gorgeous!!!
Wishing you a very happy and blessed day!

It's time for a NEW CHALLENGE
over at Freshly Brewed Challenges!
This style / technique is one that I don't often do myself, therefore I didn't really know
WHAT to call it and think I confused my DT, which I often do, so they
are used to it... sigh. (I'm sorry ladies <3 p="">
This week I want to see your CAS Cards.
We are looking for your ONE LAYER CREATIONS.
You are limited to your card base + one more layer.
So here is where I add confusion.
1 card base and one more layer... that's it.
If you have an image, then it can be cut and popped but not masked.
You can add one layer of embellishments but they have to be on the base...
not on the image... Does that even make sense?
Well, you know I am pretty easy on y'all when it comes to the 'rules'.
If you tried, that's good enough for me.
I used the FBD Digi
I hope to see you play along with us this week!
Have a very happy and blessed day.

This week we want to see a card featuring
your FAVORITE season.
I don't really have a FAVORITE season. I have something
I love about them all. I love most things about winter.
Hot cocoa, coffee, scarves, boots... but I don't like it when it's
TOOOO COLD like it has been the past few days (in the 30's.. I'm a baby)
For this card I used the Fresh Brewed Designs
I, once again, used the Splitcoast Stampers TWISTED CARD Technique.
Such a fun card fold, don't you think?
Come play along with us this week HERE
Have a happy and blessed day!
