Celebrate with this Cutie!

Once again, Michelle is knocking out the cards! Thank heavens she is because my personal life has turned into a whirlwind the past couple of weeks. I'm actually very late posting this card she made using the Ice Cream set. These colors just scream summer to me! Make sure you check out Michelle's blog and leave her a comment. I just love what she's doing with some of my favorite stamp sets!!

Happy Easter card!

I can't tell you how fun it is watching my inbox for a new card from Michelle! She used the I Love Easter set for this E is for Easter challenge on the ABC Challenge blog and a sketch from A Spoon Full of Sugar.

I thought I was getting in the mood for Easter. After all, it was 80 degrees here yesterday. Now they're predicting rain, sleet and SNOW tomorrow!!! What is up with that?

For Somebunny Special

Michelle is at it again! She used the I Love Easter set for this sketch at Card Patterns. We have had such wonderful weather the past few days...I'm thinking Spring really might be just around the corner. And this card just puts me in the mood for Spring and all the beautiful blooms!

Another Gem from Michelle!

I told you she amazes me with her output of cards!!! Michelle made this card with a Distressing Challenge in mind. She used several distressing techniques....chalking, inking, crumpling and tearing. I just love this image from the Pirates set, a sentiment from Treasure Seeker, and my favorite embellishment.....lots of jewels!!!

Make sure you check out Michelle's blog and leave her some blog lovin'!

Introducing Michelle!

I'm not sure exactly when I found Michelle's blog, but I've been following it for a while. It's always fun to find another challenge junkie. And I'm amazed and inspired at how many challenges Michelle is able to complete all while being a busy working mom of 2 boys, 2 dogs and 2 cats. She even hosts monthly challenges on her own blog. On a whim, I asked Michelle if she would be interested in using some TAC images for some cards while I am trying to get through the last few weeks of tax season. I was so happy that she agreed.

And just look at this HOT flamingo!! I love the color combo she used on this card featuring one of the fun images in the Tickled Pink set. This card is making me long for one of those hot days of summer when heading to the pool is the best option. I'm thinking that would feel pretty good right now since I just walked in from getting the paper and it's in the teens out there!!!

I love this card! Thanks Michelle...I can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve.

Cars Birthday Card for Amy R.'s Friday Sketch #50

It took me a while to decide what set to use for Amy R.'s Friday Sketch #50. Then I remembered this Cars set that had never seen ink! Layers of Just Like Dad papers, some embossing with the Houndstooth Cuttlebug folder, a sentiment from Tag Tidbits, and some fiber from my stash. I'm pretty happy with this masculine birthday card which can be some of the hardest cards to come up with.

Don't forget there are a few more hours to enter my blog candy giveaway here!! I'm off to get moving on a busy, busy day. Hope you have a great one!

Hey Chick! There's a New Card Sketch Blog

You might have figured out I'm addicted to card sketches. I was super excited to find a new sketch blog this week, Card Patterns. I used CP Sketch #3 to make this fun card using the Hey Chick stamps I added to my collection during the 50% off sale. The paper is from Sassafras Lass, and the ribbon is from my stash. I just love this sentiment!!! I think I'm just going to leave this set out on my table and make a few more cards before I put it away.

Amberley Grace Thank You Cards

I used the same GWP stamp and some Amberley Grace paper scraps and tags for a bunch of quickie thank you cards. I'm loving these little scalloped cards made with my Nestabilities!!
