Hello everyone,  I hope you are all fine and ready for another week of inspiration, creativity and fun in cardmaking land. I will and especially today because I was so tickled to be asked by Holly to join the Squigglefly design team. I love their images, they are cute, funny and outrageously cool! I want to welcome all the other girls too, but I had to make a special shout out to Deena, she joined as well. I know I will enjoy this new venture.

How about joining us in this week's challenge: Playing favorites hosted by Vicki. She thought since this week's is the last challenge for Chelsea's group that it would be fun for them to use any favorite image they have. If you don't have a Squigglefly image, you can use their freebies, isn't that fun! Remember you don't HAVE to use Squigglefly though.

I used this adorable image called Tiny tot, it's my favorite...for now!I did use Roxie's sketch from SCS.

Well that is all for now, do enjoy the day, I promise you it's filled with joy if you want it too. hugsxo Peggy

Just my style birthday flowers and Marie Mychelle's christening card

Here is my card for today's Featured Stamper Tami, I just had to try  with the Gina K dress from Retro Boutique. Here is Tami's pretty Just my style CAS3 card. I also used Tracy's cool sketch over at Eat Sleep Stamp. Drop by and give it a try, you are sure to love it.

Congratulations Tami, you have a superb gallery. Your style is sleek and sure. and I love it!
Here is a card I made for my little grandaughter Marie Mychelle. We attended her christening today. She was all dolled up and adorable to boot!

I used this fun template found on the Stamper Sampler Blog.

Here is the best picture I could get, it was worst than paparazzi's there. She did good though, she fussed but a bit at the end because it was time for a feed. So there you are, the proud parents and Baby MM (Marie Mychelle)

Hello everyone, here is a card I made for the Midnight madness sketch challenge this week. I am aslo entering the Inspiration challenge inspired by the colors from these Festa-Limetta dishes

The tree is from the Cricut cartrdige set "Heritage". Deena prepared these while I was visiting this week. Isn't she a doll! Thank you, I wish I could get my hands on one of those machines...someday.
 Hello everyone, was kind of busy this week, but I did want to show you what inspired me last night.
Here is another card for the Inspiration challenge inspired by the colors from these Festa-Limetta dishes again.The sketch is from last week's My favorite things sketch#23.

Wanted to show the inside sponged with the tree as template! Love the soft look of it.
This one is inspired by both Rosso Italian dishes and the Inspiration challenge inspired by the colors from these Festa-Limetta dishes and used this week's sketch challenge on SCS.

The paper I used is inspired by a card I saw in a CARDS magazine.

This is a card I made for My favorithe things sketch#24 I added the Rosso Italian dishes this time, again from the IC. The thought is inspired by this beautiful card  Dawn (TreasureOiler) created. Hope you don't mind Dawn, I just had to try this. The thought is so true and moving to me.

Sorry for the SHORT ( not writing alot)but GIANT(posting alot) post. Getting ready to fly now...leaving for Paris in a couple of weeks. YAY!

Hello, here we are Wednesday has come again and of course with a new challenge at CRAFTY CREATIONS CHALLENGE for our new DT member Juelmarie (YAY!) She has chosen a very simple theme - JUST IMAGINE-. The Sponsor this week is Pattie's Creations:

Have a beautiful day everyone.

Hello everyone,

'Tis a beautiful morning in my little neck of the woods. Not too hot, not to cold, just the kind or morning when you get up, go for your daily walk, exercise, shower and then sit down for the perfect cup of coffee, delicious toast and homemade applesauce ( no sugar please)  and exhale. I love my life!

Now on to my card: I made it for a dear friend who is turning 50 before I will (august is not here yet!) and used Tracy's cool sketch at East Sleep Stamp: Sketchy Thursday as my "guide". Also added it to these fun blog challenges: Cute Card Thursday:  Pins & Pearls, Papertake Weekly Challenge  Anything goes  May Arts Presents: A Ribbon Challenge.

My sentiment is handwritten in french, it is so very hard to translate "pour une chic fille", the closest I came was: "For a good girl" , yet, I feel it doesn't convey the "camaraderie", warmth, and deep feelings of love I have for my friend. Maybe a real interperter would know.

Hugs to all, Peggyxo

Hello everybody, I have an inspirational challenge for you this week at

Because of all of the rain we've had in different areas of the globe,
what more fun than to use this CLASSIC song from 
THE WIZARD OF OZ movie as inspiration for our creations and
celebrate the joy in the colors of the rainbow. 
I used Emma Swinging from  Whimsy's Design Studio.

My card is also entered in the Cardmadfairy's Digi Days Challenge - it's a sketch, loved it too.

I also used Stanley Scarecrow from Melissan Jenkins' (Meljen's) line,  and Courageous Carl from Crissy Armstrong's (Crissy's  Digis) line on these fun and easy to make bookmarks.


Our sponsor this week is WHIMSY STAMPS!!! 

And of course we have 5
super duper images as prizes for a lucky winner. So join in and
walk down that "yellow brick road", or "click your red shoes" like Dorothy did, use whatever inspires you about the movie, song or both.
Don't forget if you upload to SCS add CCCW122 to your keywords so we can see you there also.

 Hello to everyone who finds pleasure and inspiration in visiting my creations. I know, I get alot of it from different blogs and make friends along the way. Isn't this what crafting is all about. We find pleasure in creating and then sharing our crafts in the hopes that someone will enjoy them and be inspired. This week I have to share that I was appreciated by Tracy(THANK YOU SO MUCH' YOU MADE MY WEEK) at Eat Sleep Stamp blog. (I am a SKETCH girl when it comes to cardmaking, need my guidelines, he, he, he.)  Last week was my first go at her sketch, but could not post it until our DT at the CRAFTY CREATIONS CHALLENGE posted up our challenge on wednesday. Little did I know, the same day, she chose my card as her SKETCH ARTIST for the week. I can't help myself, I had to share this with you all as a positive example of what sharing our work can do. This is on a small scale, but as we know, when news is shared, be it good or bad, it gets around. I'm sooo glad it's all GOOD.

This is this week's sketch which you can find when scrolling down her blog: Eat Sleep Stamp Blog.
Recipe: The Greeting Farm - Dee Dee - Design papers are from Daisyd's. - sparkle foam, buttons, chipboard sentiment,  $store - copics - SU pink ribbon - paper piecing -

Hello everyone,

Today I have for you a little cutie pie Pure Innocence from My favorite things. I was getting a serious case of "I NEED TO MAKE A CUTIE CARD" in the last weeks I made 11 Fathers day cards. So, it was quite refreshing to find My Favorite Things  WEDNESDAY STAMP CLUB SKETCH yesterday, I missed a few, so I thought I would add it to SQUIGGLEFLY's challenge which suggested we used thing in 3's. I first punched 3 corners of my squares, but you can't really see that. Then I added 3 little SU Fleurettes, 3 staples on my sentiment and 3 main colors, teal, lavender and red. I even added three borders on the inside. Cool huh. Hope you have a beautiful day, I am keeping inside mostly today as I I'm not quite ready to fly away to Paris right away with all the winds we've been having. LOL

Hugs to all,

Other challenges: The ABC challenge- V is for Variety in threes (3).  Creative Craft World - Three (3) flowers or more. Divas by design - Florals of any kind.
