Just a quick little card I made this afternoon for Tamara's "Edgy Challenge" over at SNS. Yes, that's right - I made a card without using a Magnolia image. These little CC Designs images are super cute...and I have a wack of them - so although I won't stray far from my Magnolias...these ones will be making an appearance too!! :)Thanks for stopping by....check back again soon and if you're in the mood for a challenge, swing by SNS - there's LOTs of them this month to keep your mojo flowing!! :)

Check out this sign....this was what Rhea was holding when she met me at the airport!!! I felt like a movie star getting off the plane!! LOL!!! She tries to say that she tried to make it tacky - but it is actually quite beautiful!!! It has pink shiny metallic paint and just the right amount of bling. It is TOTALLY going in my scrap room when I get it home ....I just hope it makes it off the plane in one piece!!! :)

A couple more goodies that I made this weekend at Camp Croppin'! For my little egg card - this was a challenge where we had to use the ribbon - the green brad (there were 12 pastel colored brads to chose from between the table) and we were EACH given a cream and white piece of embossed paper. I found out later that we only had to use EITHER the cream or the white - not both!!! As usual I wasn't paying attention so I used both pieces and just colored the white piece and used glimmer mist on it. It's a lot more "blingy" in real life.

A BIG Greeting Farm THANK YOU!!!

Just a quick post to say thank you to those of you that helped with the voting this week. We are on to round FOUR!!! Whoooot!!! There are only 6 rounds - so really, I'll only bug you for another couple of weeks!! HONEST!! :)

I do have a few new projects to share, but the "big reveal" has to wait until the 15th so check back then. In the meantime, I am flying to Calgary in the morning to hang with a bunch of my online buddies (whom I've never met!!) We will be at the Scrapbook Eh? Education Eh? event this weekend at the Carriage Inn in Calgary. Vendor Day Friday, Camp Croppin' on Friday night and all day Saturday and then I will be taking an all day class on Sunday and hopefully after a full day of coloring - attaining my Copic Certification!! Whooooot!!! I cannot WAIT!!! :)

Now I am used to packing for crops - I do them a few times a year!! However, I usually drive - so if I can fit it in the goes!!! However, this time I am FLYING!! Have you EVER tried to pack for a crop when you are FLYING??!!! GAH!!! Needless to say - your choices are much more limited. I sure hope my tablemates are stocked up ...and if all else fails, thankfully there is a scrappy store - RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET!!! Yay!! Then I just have to worry about getting it home - and I can always ship it! LOL!!!

Anyway - have a great weekend - I will have my laptop, so will be posting my reveals (and all the details on this fabulous scrappy weekend) while I'm away!! As always, thanks for stopping by!!

Just because....

Here is my card for this week's challenge over at the Stamp Shoppe!! The guest designer for the month of April is my friend Irma who is incredibly talented..... and she is doing a fabulous challenge each week for a chance to win 15% off your order. Each time you play along - you get an entry!!! This is my take for this week!! The challenge was to use Spring Inspired/Pastel Colors. I figured this fit the bill. I can't wait to see what Irma has in store for us next!! :)

The Greeting Farm - WEEK 3!!!!

Okay everyone - we breezed through last week again and now this week it my turn for a submission. You had to use at least one Greeting Farm stamp and make a LAYOUT!!!! ACK!

Please go here and vote for my layout - all you need to do is leave a comment with the word VOTE in it. I would really really really appreciated it. (That is the shamelessly BEGGING part)!!!

Just Magnolia - Week 49 - Just Fold It!

Here's my card for this week's Just Magnolia Challenge - Fold it! You had to create a card with at least two folds in it. I chose to do this card as it's perfect for adding a little recipe inside it. Love this Magnolia stamp - such a fun collection to play with. Thanks for stopping by - more to come!!

The Greeting Farm - The Royal Battle

So a couple of weeks ago, my friend Peggy asked me to join her and Spike in a challenge over at The Greeting Farm. We were entered in the Royal Battle as the BC Farmers!! (Cute name eh??) So the first week, our challenge was to come up with a card using inspiration from a jar of facial scrub. Peggy came up with this card and we sailed right through week 1.

In week two, our challenge was to make an easel card. Spike used the "Wonderland Set" and came up with this card:

Don't you just LOVE Alice's eyes???

So this is where I shamelessly ask for you vote to help us out this week and get us through to the third round. If you go HERE you will be able to leave a comment for Spike's card (which counts as a vote). You might have to sign in first - but that's easy and you won't be disappointed - there's a ton of talent in this gallery!! Also, you're able to vote three times - so while you're checking out Spike's card, leave a comment for a couple other of your favorites!! :) Thanks for playing along!! :)
