Live Every Moment

Good Afternoon! I thought I would share this quick and easy card. Sorry about the "bright" picture. I took this in the evening and my flash went a bit crazy :o( I made this baby for our nephew's 21st birthday, hence the title, "Live Every Moment." I had forgotten about all the wonderful rub-ons that Stampin' Up sells. I bought a lot of these in the beginning, as they were a cheaper alternative to purchasing sentiment stamps. Very fun and easy to use. . .

Spring Dreams - PPA84

Good morning! What a perfect day to submit a "Spring-related" card. It is bright, sunny and semi-warm here. This is my submission for the Pals Paper Arts Inspiration Spring/Easter Challenge. Actually, the card itself has nothing to do with Spring, but instead was sent as a "congratulations" card. One of our wonderful babysitters just found out she was accepted into the Air Force Academy. Quite an accomplishment and one she worked hard to earn. Needless to say, we are VERY proud. I must also admit that this card was shamelessly copied from the front cover of my 2010-2011 coveted Stampin' Up Idea Book and Catalog. What a perfect tool for much needed mojo. I get all gooey and mushy when I look through my cattie. Have a wonderful weekend!

Plus, thoughts and prayers for the families in Japan. So tragic.

Circle Scallop Baby Card - Mojo 180

I thought it was time to dust off the ole' blog and try it again. I am "attempting" to make an effort to share some of my creations, since I am always crusin' around other blogs and getting tons of inspiration. I believe it's time to give back. . . I needed a baby card, plus I have always wanted to participate in the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. I have good intentions every week, but then comes reality. Must admit - not thrilled with the card, but it will be sent anyway. Otherwise, she will be entering kindergarten before I get another one made. Hee, hee.
Thanks for stopping by - leave a comment. It helps keep me motivated.
