Happy St. Patricks Day!


I hope ya'll have had a GREAT Day, mine NOT SO MUCH! But, things are getting better, and I plan on going to bed early! Tomorrow is a NEW Day and it will be GREAT!! *fingers crossed* LOL!

I have a card I want to share with you, and it's the first thing I made with my Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro, that I purchased from Oh My Crafts! I KNOW I have broke the Scrap My Stash, but ya' gotta have adhesive and since I have heard SO MANY Good things about the glue glider, I decided I would give it a try. I was ordering some things with my Credit Card for a friend and just needed a little bit more to get free shipping, so REALLY I couldn't resist! LOL!

Here is my card, it was a MO-JO Monday Sketch, but of course I didn't see it in time to get it posted in the challenge. OH WELL, I still LOVE how it turned out, AND I did use scraps so that counts right? LOL!

The black rose is from ribbon and I just cut one off, it's hard to see it in the pics but it is VERY pretty!
All paper, ribbon and lace is from my Stash. The sentiment is a Fiskars stamp.
Here is my Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro! SO LOVE IT, ya' think I could have remembered to take a pic of it with my card? Ummm....NO! LOL!

Do you know that it could be YOUR LUCKY DAY?
Head on over to the Glue Arts Blog and check out their Giveaway! IT'S as AWESOME as my Glue Glider Pro!! GOOD LUCK!

Also, I just realized that I have over 100 Followers!! WOW and WOOHOO!! I have some Blog Candy to giveaway to one of my followers. Make sure to stop back by tomorrow!!

My Style~Lasting Memories Challenge #28


This week over at Lasting Memories the Challenge was "You're the BOSS!" I have to show my unique style, so I decided to use these pics from a friends wedding. We traveled to Wisconsin for the wedding and since we were so close we went to The Mall of America!! WOW! That place was HUGE! LOVED IT!
If you didn't know I LOVE flowers!! SO I made these using my Cricut and Make The Cut. Of course, they were flat, but once you mist them with some water you can make them COME ALIVE and I just LOVE this technique!!

Here are some close ups of my flowers (LOVE having the use of my camera again!):

The background paper is from Dream Street Papers and the cardstock is some that I bought in a HUGE package from Hobby Lobby, I didn't like it at first cause it wasn't very thick, but for these flowers it is just AWESOME!! I also made the title on my Cricut, using Make The Cut, the lace and bling are from my stash. I hope you play along this week!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Spring Blog Hop!


If you are Spring Hopping you should have arrived from The Purple Lily Studio.

I don't know about you but I am SO READY for some Sunshine and WARM Weather!! I made these two layouts to give you some Spring Time Ideas!
Me & the bunny: Yep that's ME! LOL! I used Some Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday papers that I have had forever. (using up my stash!) I cut the bracket shape out of the center of the paper with my Cricut and then cut it in half, and flipped it so I could get GOOD use of the double sided paper! Also used was Jenni Bowlin Mini Springtime Bingo Card. The Butterfly was in the kit I won from Artful Delight. Along with the white "ME" which are Thickers by the yard fabric letter stickers! LOVE them! "bunny" are Dear Lizzy Sparkling Stickers. "&" is Making Memories Puffy Alphas in pink. Also, most everything was inked with Clearsnaps-Cats Eye Chalk, Pastel Lime. The "the", buttons, flowers, strips, journal box and bling are all from my stash!
May you stay Forever Young: This is my granddaughter Abby, she is SUCH a HANDFUL! She has on my glasses and thought it was VERY FUNNY! Journalling says: Abby has such a ZEST for life! She just had to try on my glasses. Of course, she couldn't see a thing but thought it was SO Funny and Giggled Forver! LOL!! The paper is from Dream Street Papers. I cut the bracket and title from cardstock with my Cricut and Makes the Cut. I inked with Clearsnaps Cats Eye Chalks in Rouge and Deep Green. All other paper, flowers, buttons and bling are from my stash.

I have some BLOG CANDY to giveaway to one lucky follower! I have Cosmo Cricket's 6 x 6 DeLovely paper pad and a Jenni Bowlin 4" Chipboard Mini Book, it has scalloped edges and 8 double sided die-cut lined pages. Also, I made the 4 stick pins, I thought they turned out VERY CUTE!
