Happy Friday!!!!!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Happy Good Friday! :) Today's challenge at Paper Therapy is to make something for a special lady in your life. With Mother's Day coming up, I decided to make a card for my mom! I really like the way this one turned out! I got to play with some fun new paper and the fun new stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink!

You have until Wednesday May 11th to get this challenge into the challenge forum at Paper Therapy! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Happy Friday!!

Happy Friday everyone!! So excited for today! Not only is today the first challenge with the new Design Team at Paper Therapy, but from noon today until 2:00 on Sunday I get to spend the weekend scrapping with my favorite sister and my friend Kris! Woo-hoo!!! So excited! Much needed girly time!! :) (And I get to go to my sister's baby doctor appointment! Yay for the lil' girl coming in July!!) Ok, moving right along! ;) The challenge this week was to use a basket for inspiration. Your project could feature a basket on it or just use something "basket-ish"...whatever worked for you! I chose to use a basket on my card.

This lil' bunny was just too cute so I gave him a basket of "eggs" to carry! Anyway, I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! I know I will! Hopefully I'll have lots to share next week!!

A few cards

Here are some cards that I have made recently. I used this one for a Spring card swap. I really like the way it turned out! I heat embossed and used the "resist" technique to color in the green. First time I've ever done that. Super easy!!

I always struggle with male birthday cards. I'm ok if it's a kid, but get into adults and ugh! It's just hard for me!! Can't really use cute dinosaurs on a card for someone much older than 10, huh? Anyway, here's what I came up with. I like it! It was fun to do all the distressing and making it look all grungy!
I need to spend some more time on YouTube researching Tim Holtz! I think I can definitely get into his grungy style!

Get Your Sketch On

Happy Saturday! Hubs is out of town this weekend, so it's just me and the lil man. Hopefully that means lots of movies, junk food, wine (only for me, of course!!) and scrappy time! Here's a layout I did last night for Get Your Sketch On using sketch #13. I'm not thrilled with it...I feel like it's missing something...but that happens to me a lot with "holiday" layouts. I'm not a big fan of scrapping holidays. I MUCH prefer the everyday things. But oh's another one done and one more closer to being caught up (whatever the heck THAT is!!) ;)
