Boy could my family use some "smiles" these days... Things in my house are very tight and rough these days... Wishing something good can come soon... There is one thing that I have been working towards for a little while now that I really want and am still holding onto the hope that I get it... I have also recently gone back to work after being out for 4 months due to a major knee surgery and I am wondering if I went back too soon because I am having a rough time with it...

I AM UPDATING THIS SO EVERYONE KNOWS THAT THIS CAN INDEED BE USED AS A BOOKMARK.... I scored the back flap every 1/4" so that it will fit in any thickness of book. The decorated front part with be outside the book and displayed for all to see. It is too pretty (IMHO) to tuck away inside a book anyway... So the flower isn't going to affect using this particular bookmark in any way... :)
CLICK ON PHOTO TO ENLARGE FOR DETAILS This is my final submission for the DT I am trying to get on. I was picked as a semi-finalist and had to create one last project for the final decision. I am hoping this was enough to get me all the way... I think there are some pretty clever ideas put to use on this card.here. Thank you for taking the time to stop by... Please let me know what you think. Happy Stamping!!!

I made this card for the inspiration challenge over at splitcoast. I love butterflies and when I was browsing the website, I came upon butterflies galore. I really couldn't pick one image as an inspiration so I used multiple....
Bright and Cheery colors is the theme for today... I bought this DSP just last week because I loved the colors so when I saw the challenge today, I immediately went for this DSP pack.

So I NEVER use yellow and I find it a bear to work with but today I knew I HAD to play with these sunflower dies because they are on borrow and I LOVE sunflowers... Of course what color are they? Yup... Yellow!!! I was thumbing through some of my DSP and found this awesome sunflower paper. At first I thought it would be too much and overpowering to my card but I think it ended up being just the perfect touch. I think I may have a new found "like" for yellow... :)

The challenge is to pick your favorite team's colors and create a card using those colors. The card doesn't have to contain anything to do with sports except for the colors. I had a couple ideas so I made a couple cards for this challenge... The first one if a combination of my kid's school colors since they are in 3 different school...

Today is a much better day than yesterday and so I can say that I am no longer feeling blue, but since the color challenge today was monochromatic blues... I guess I am a little blue today...
this card...I knew I wanted to CASE it. I love the flowers and I have been playing around with a lot of old sets and when I skimmed past Simple Sketches I knew it was perfect.
