Pretty Pastels!

This week's challenge at Phindy's Place Challenge Blog is Pretty Pastels. I was so excited about this because I just bought myself a new paper pack (okay I bought 3 of them) "Sweet Pea" by the Paper Studio and guess what, it's all baby/pastels! When I bought the papers, I also bought these nifty flower embellies. I just couldn't resist putting them all together with this adorable image from Phindy's Place!
Hope you enjoy my card!

Aha! A second entry this week!

Well ladies and gentlemen, I've done it! I've made a second card tonight for the Phindy's Place Friday Challenge Blog!! WOO HOO!! I guess "buttons" really is an easy theme!
See, this is how it all happened, I took the kids to Hobby Lobby today. I bought some papers, some embellies, some new watercolor paints, even some new paint brushes. Well, they were all sitting here on my table and I though, hmmmm...I should try out my new paintbrushes! So, I decided I had to paint (using my new paints of course) this adorable little boy from Phindy's Place. Well, I can't paint without picking out papers first. I just happened to buy papers today that would go so adorably with him. Then I remembered that I bought these cute little button brads, they went so well together I just had to make a card with it all. The only parts of this card that aren't brand spankin new are the cardstock and the ribbons, okay, and the digi but I've barely used him!
Hope you enjoy my second entry this week!

Christmas in July!

Well, I've managed to make a card for the second week in a row, I'm quite proud of myself! I made this Christmas Card using a Phindy's Place Image - I just love "Nana's Pies". She looks like everyone's image of the perfect grandmother!
The challenge this week at Phindy's Friday Challenges is to use buttons - how easy is that?
Hope you like my card.....

And another one....

Here is another Phindy Card! Wooo Hooo - 2 in one week - can you believe it?
This card for Phindy's Friday Challenge is a Christmas card. It's a pretty simple card but, at this point, I can't be too picky!! I'm just glad I got to craft!!! I used "Giving Girl" I just love her!

I'm trying....really, I am!

Do you ever feel like your priorities get in the way of your fun? Well, that seems to be the way my life is going at this point! Between work, the kids, and the house, there seems to be very little time left for me and when there is any, I'm exhausted!!
Regardless, I did manage to make some cards this week for Phindy's Friday Challenge. I'm sooooo excited!
Here's my first card - I hope you like it! Isn't this little Phindy girl soooo cute with her big bouquet of flowers??
