Thousand sheets of paper...

OKay, I've now joined the hundreds and hundreds who are trying to win this paper! Didn't know about it? Check it out Here

Dahlia Anne

Dahlia Anne got to meet her other Great Grandma recently. And she loved having all that attention!

Since this picture was taken she's had a first tooth pop through! And over the weekend she was walking all over the living room with just holding on with one hand. She's 8 months old now.

GingerLoft Vintage

Today's Challenge at GingerLoft is Vintage/Distressed.

And this is the little card I made. I always seem to need sympathy cards (don't we all) and I think this is a little more masculine so I'm glad to include it in my stash! I hope I don't have to use it for a while though.

This clock/leaf image is just perfect. And it would be a great image for a "fall" back daylight savings card too with those cute fall leaf faces.

Digi Darla entry

Here's my entry into the challenge over at Digi Darla's.

I decided to use both new freebie images for this card, as it was fitting the title and reason for the card! And, I hadn't made a shaped card in a while, and I love them.

Edited to add: I won with this card over at Digi Darla's!

reason for more cards... and I've made another DT team!!

Hi Everyone.
I had a lovely follower comment about me being on a roll with making more cards, and I must say that's true partly, but I've been making lots all the time, just not photographing them. And I've been trying to stock up a little on pieces by coloring as I go, just not assembling the cards.

I have made a few more cards since I'm not babysitting that lovely little granddaughter now also. We've had some big events - some of my in-laws came to visit last week (first time for that Great Grandma to get to see Dahlia!) and I'm also getting ready for my 40th High School reunion next weekend (and that is really scary!)

But I'm glad she noticed!

And one final bit of news -- I made the DT for The Stamping Boutique!! Just found out today! And I'm very excited.
Here's a card I made for the Nutcrafter's Challenge #1. This was a freebie image and so cute. This is not actually their first challenge, but it is since they re-opened.

They have some cute prizes, and this challenge runs until September 27 - so you still have plenty of time to participate. Get the freebie and join in!


Here's the second card I've made for the CDAC Progressive Challenge.


This is for the OLw64 CHALLENGE. I think my favorite cards are CAS or One Layer. It's a go-to for me. And this is such an adorable fall image, and my sister in law needed a card! What can I say!

Challenge - Back to School

Here's another card for the Back to School Challenge at Designed2Delight.

Naturally most people think of kids when thinking of back to school, but in our community, there are more and more going back at a Much Older Age. I wanted them included too!

Thanks for coming by to check it out!

I'm on a new team...

First things first, I want to announce that I'm a new DT team member of GingerLoft Designs. Please come back and look for a new posting on September 18th for the Vintage Challenge, and every two weeks thereafter.
Or just go to the Blog to check things out! There are lots of other members making some great cards!

Also, here's a card I made for the Designed2Delight Challenge.

2 Challenges - Wow for me!

This first card is using a freebie image from Ginger Loft, and it's for their challenge.

And if you used this image, you are supposed to get another freebie by email. Can't beat a deal like that!

And the second card is using a newest image from Designed2Delight.

Both images are so cute, and fit in perfectly with a couple of cards that I needed to send to some relatives for fall! I'm way behind on that type of correspondence!
